The work is so big, and for my schedule it will be so tasking for me to send it page by page and one cannot send a folder over the web and that is why I have to compress it to .rar format.

Not all was sent as I was experience hard time with Nairaland policies/anomalies in sending them. But I sent them to her mail.

Now I suggest she open go to a cybercafe to download it and open it there.

Thanks and sorry for all the inconveniences.

Re: My Husband......... by Zanga007(m): 11:09am On Jul 22, 2014
Chapter1
The weather these days could be deceiving,who would have known that the day was far spent.
It still looked cool and the sun was not hot either,Hannah had slept off on couch,and this was one thing her mother disliked greatly,Her mum would have chastise her-Janet what if i was bringing home,a visitor,its wrong to sleep on the couch,so on and so forth-her mother was just too neat,they lived in a beautiful bungalow in Ikeja,in Lagos,their house was a 4bedroom flat,each room had a built in closet,the house was tiled,the house had three sitting room,one for entertaining visitor,the other one was for the family,their father used the third sitting room for his study.
She had laid on the couch to stretch her tired legs and pass time,by watching her favourite programme-Entertainment Splash-,anchored by the very famous,beautiful and ever talented TV personality,Labi Layori.The programme ended about thirty minutes ago,that must have been the time she dozed off,she was putting on a sleeveless ash gown,that accentuated her curves,she was a sight to behold...she checked the wall clock,it was 4:30pm,her boyfriend would call her any moment from now.

Jane met her boyfriend Jacob a year ago, at a cafe,she had gone in to check her mails and see,if the admission list for Unilorin was out,her younger sister Hannah wrote their Post utme a month ago,Jane was having problem,loading the page,when a man walked up to her,the man had come with a friend and had probably seen her come in,well,who wouldn't notice her,she had long,straight legs,that cold drive any sane man crazy,she was tall,she was dark in complexion,she has a round face,with big white eyeballs,a cat eye at that,her eye brows were finely shaped,her was small and straight,she had small,curved but soft lips,her head stood graciously on her neck,she has straight shoulders,she was so beautiful even at twenty one,she had two big and pointed bumps on her chest,her bossom was round,they looked soft and firm too,a narrow waist,wide hips and attractive buttocks,she was a sight to behold.God must have taken extra time moulding this beautiful human,she had on a green top,it was fitted,and a short plait skirt,she had light make up on her face,her hair was long and packed with a green ribbon........Even a blind man will smell her beauty 5miles away.
Jacob had noticed that she was having problem connecting with whatever it was,she was doing on the system and decided to help her,although on a careful note,Jacob's real intention was to get to know the beautiful lady few feets away from him,Jacobs handsome had made him a widely sought after bachelor,at twenty five,he was already a young millionaire running his father's multinational company.

He walked up to her,his eyes on the lady before him,he bent slightly towards the computer and asked,
''Are you having any problem with the system'' he was still looking at her.
Jane lifted her eyes to meet his,she nodded her head and returned her eyes to the system,Jacob moved closer to check what the problem was,meanwhile Janes head was spinning,the face looked familiar but she couldn't place it,after 2minutes of typing on the keyboard,he touched the screen and pointed to the address box,a letter was missing,Jane looked closely and saw it too,she quickly typed the ommited letter,in a seconds the site opened.She mutterred a quick thank you,hoping that the stranger would leave so she could have a better look at the handsome creature of a man but he didn't move.
Jacob took a step back,he stretched his hands forward and spoke confidently,
''I am Jacob Smiths and you are......''he said looking at her pointedly.
Jane was startled,she looked around the cafe,each person was minding his system,she couldn't believe her ears,Jacob Smiths? Of The Smiths Corporation? No,it cant just be,the same Smiths,whose name rang bells in Lagos,Nigeria and beyond,all this rumbled in her heart within five seconds.She smiled shyly,adjusted her chair,

''I am Janet Odenuga''she replied curtly.

Jacob looked at his hands,still stretched forward and looked at her face,Jane had forgotten the hand,she stood and shaked him lightly,but his hands held hers firmly and lingered for an extra seconds...Jacob smiled,
''Nice meeting you beautiful one''indeed she was so beautiful and her eye,charming.
''I wouldn't like to disturb you,but if you do not mind,can i have your contact please?'' he said it so swiftly that she wanted to ask him to say it again,but she didnt.
''My mobile? She said gesturing to his phone.Wonder! Who wouldn't give her contact to Jacob Smiths,i doubt if such a lady do exist,she thought.
Jacob nodded and handed her his phone,she punched her digits on the phone and returned it,He couldn't think straight,he kept staring at the dark skinned beauty before him,he collected his phone and said ''Thanks'',he returned to his friend..........

Janet was shocked to say the least,

She had seen him TV so many times,she had always admired the young millionaire entreprenuer,but had not even thought about seeing him anytime soon,she had lost all concentration,she quickly checked the site but the admission list was not yet out,she checked her mail,replied some messages and closed it,she stood up quietly and made for the door,most people were busy working on their system,but some still stared at the yound beauty heading out,just as she was about to close the glass door,she turned to look at Jacob Smiths again,she caught him starring too,he smiled and waved her bye.....


Jane smiled all the way home,she hurried through her chores for the day,and waited patiently for him to call,she couldn't sleep,she kept rolling from one side of the bed to the other,phone in hand.
It was some minutes past nine,when a call came in,strange number though,she picked it on the first ring.She placed the phone to her ears,the caller a male said hi,she replied ''hi''too,she was so happy he called her,only for the caller to start shouting and telling her that she'll regret it for not visiting him as earlier agreed,she was lost,she tried to calm him down,after two minutes of nonsense talk,the caller apologized,and said he dialled a wrong number,and ended the call...Jane was angry,it was not Jacob Smith.She switched off her phone and tried to sleep.

Three days gone,yet,no call from Jacob Smiths,a week,yet no call.she stoppped thinking about him,though it was hard for her. She was planning to go back to school,since the holidays were over,when Jacob called her,she didnt know it was him,not until he mentioned his name,she was taken aback,her heart did a flipflop at the mention of Jacob Smiths,he had asked to see her and she agreed without hesitation.My dear,show me the lady that would agree to go on a date with Jacob Smiths...Huh! Every womans dream,handsome,riiiiiiiich and intelligent.


On the D-day,she took her time to do a nice makeup,she wore a blue tank top and a white pant that was fitted to flatter her curves,a white flat shoe,a stud earring,she combed her jet black long hair and held it with a pin,she was not one for necklace,so she bother about it.She looked graciously beautiful.


He had asked to meet her at a popular but expensive restaurant,she was ten minutes late,because she didn't get a bike on time,On getting to the restaurant,she entered and did a five seconds search for her date,yes! She found him sitting at a corner,she had only been to this beautiful restaurant once,they did serve great and tasty meals.
As she walked cautiously to his table,she knew all eyes would be on her,she was used to that already,heads turned towards her,she passed by a couple,the man just kept staring at the beautiful figure that passed by him,thanks heaven,she was wearing a flat shoe,if not,the way different set of eyes were tearing off her blouse,she could have fallen.

By the time she got to his table,he was on his feet,he pulled out a chair for her,she thanked him and sat,she placed her hand on the table,and carefully withdrew it to her lap,she didn't even know where to keep them,she looked at her partner who was relaxed in his chair.
''Good afternoon beautiful one''he said cheerfully,beckoning to a waiter with his left hand,the waiter walked towards their table.
''Good afternoon.....sir....Mr Jacob ...Smiths'' she spoke shyly
Instantly there was a frown on his face.
''Please do me the favour of cutting off the sir and Mr,i prefer you call me Jacob'' Jane nodded her head.
The waiter was now at their table,they ordered for Fried rice garnished with salad and chicken,and a bottle of wine.The waiter left.
Someone looking from afar would think,they planned to be on white,well,it was just coincidental,
Jacob wore a white suit,brown shoes and a shade,he wasn't wearing a tie,he looked young,matured and devilishly handsome,chocolate in complexion,if there was anything like that anyway,he looked clean,fresh and he smelled money,his watch lay firmly on his wrist,he had broad shoulders and a wide chest,he was tall and had flesh on his body.he was always smiling.
Her mum had advised her to be careful with handsome and smiling men,he looked calm and there was something like excitement in his eyes,she couldn't say for sure,or maybe it was just a figment of her imagination,The waiter returned with their food and wine,he placed it carefully on the table and left.
Jacob shifted in his chair and spoke calmly,
''Once again,i am Jacob Smiths''he uncovered their food and poured wine into their glasses.''I'll like to know you better....he paused....i mean know you betterrrrr''stressing the better.He picked his fork and began to eat,he enjoys eating rice,fried rice in particular.
Jane spoke quietly but boldly,still holding her fork,she asked,
''What exactly do you want to know about me'' like a typical Nigerian lady would ask.
''Everything there is to know''he smiled and

He smiled and drank from his glass.
''Fine,Janet Odenuga is my name,my friends call me Jane,am born into a family of four,i am the first daughter,my mum is a Fashion designer and my dad is a lawyer,i study at The Polytechnic Ibadan,am doing my Higher National Diploma II,am study Public Administration''she continued with her food.
''Thats a good one,public administration,hmmm,government,politics,organization,rights?
Jane nodded her head.
''Well,i work for The Smiths Corporation,born into a family of four,my parents,my elder sis, and i''
He went on and on,they ate and drank,they discussed various issues.Jacob received a call and asked to be excused,after extracting a promise from Janet to go out again soon,he thanked her for coming and that he did enjoy her company.
Janet was so happy,Jacob seemed a good man,and spoke like one too,he had this soft look in his eyes,she knew right from the start that she was attracted to him,she only hoped he was a gentle man to the end.

They went out often and often,and soon he asked her to a relationship with him,she agreed and that was it,their love story began,rocking a ship on the shores of peaceful water.Janet liked Jacob,hmmmm,she didn't see it coming,she knew not what was in store for her.
Chapter 2
Janet schooled in Ibadan,while her parents and her younger sister lived in Lagos.Jacob also had his company headquarters in Lagos,they had a branch in Ibadan,he visited Jane constantly in school,took her out and showered gifts on her,he could say with all honesty that he was in love with his girlfriend.He got attracted to her from the first day,to hell with who ever said love at first sight doesn't exist.His only fear was his mother,because she had insisted he marry from their class-the rich circle-she had introduced many ladies to him,most of them were beautiful,but had nothing upstairs.
But Janet captivated him,she spoke fluent english,she was smart,intelligent and had a great body,so what else?
He had not been able to take the bold step to introduce Janet to his mother,even though the woman had insisted he brought home his girlfriendJacob was of mixed parentage,his father was from Jamaica,and his mother a yoruba woman.Even his elder sis Jackie had wanted to meet her.After so much persuassion,he agreed to bring her over,one of the weekends.

Mrs Funmilayo Smiths was Jacobs mother,she lived with her children in their family estate in Ikoyi,her husband John Smith lived in Jamaica.She was a successful woman,she was a professional Carterer,and she loved cooking.
Being Yoruba,she taught her children Yoruba language,though they rarely speak it in Public.Jacob had informed her that his girlfriend would be having Lunch with them in the afternoon.
It was quarter to one on the wall clock,she was reading her favourite magazine-Every Woman,in her room.There was a knock,it was their househelp Ruth.
''Come in''she answered
''Madam,small oga and one fine madam don come o'' Ruth said.
''Serve them juice,tell Jacob,i'll be with them soon''
Ruth was still standing by the door,
''What are you waiting for enhen''
''No o,i just wan ask you whether to serve them oga with glass''
''Okay,pour the juice on my hand and serve them,silly girl''she snapped.
''But Madam....i......come to....''
''Just shut your mouth,serve them juice in a glass,and get away!''she waved her away,and Ruth left.
She arranged her hair,looked in the mirror and went to the sitting room.
Jacob and Janet did not see her come in,she coughed to indicate her prescence.Jacob stood up and hugged his mother.
''Good afternoon mum''he drawled.
''Good afternoon dear,how are you''she said
''Am fine and you''she sat on the couch opposite theirs.
Jacob now sat beside Janet,''Mum,meet my girlfriend Janet''he smiled at his mother.
''Good afternoon ma''Janet said curtly.
''Is she the one''she spoke straight faced.
''yes,she is,isn't she beautiful''Jacob smiled.
Janet glanced at him,why was he always smiling,the man sure had a thing for smiling.
''She is,i can see'' looking awkwardly at Janet,she asked the question on Jacobs mind.
''Who are your parents''
Janet wasn't expecting that,
''Mr and Mrs Odenuga''Janet answered quickly.
''Odenuga?.... Odenuga?...Ode..nu...ga' she repeated,strange name,so who are they in this country,i mean what position do they hold'' she said standing up.
''Mum,you can't ask her such questions''
''Ok,i can't ask her that? Why? Or...do you want to answer for her? She eyed him,' Now,speak up,who are your roots in this country?' she almost shouted.
''My mum is a designer and my dad is a Lawyer''
''Good,is your dad a SAN''
''No''
''Lawyer Odenuga?never heard of that name.Son! What is this you have brought home,i am highly disappointed in you'' she hissed and walked out.
''Mum,that's not fair'',Jacob screamed after his mother.
''Look Janet,i'll talk to her'' he spoke calmly holding her hands.
''Jacob please take me out of this place''she was shaking and sobbed quietly.
''I will,please calm down''


Janet gazed vaguely out of the window,her emotions were throbbing,she had just been rejected by the mother of the man she loved.Although Jacob had called to apologize,she still felt sore,she wasn't expecting the blow she received.Jacob had met her mother so many times,Jane mother had insisted she brought home the man who constantly showered her daughter with gifts,she had been surprised and at the same time excited to meet Jacob and she gave her consent to the relationship,Janet sat on the chair by her dressing table,her mother had not returned from work.her door was open,her younger sis came in.
''Would you like me to keep you company big sis''she was already sitting on the bed.
''Even if i mind your company,you have already jumped the gun'' Janet said looking gloomy
''Just as i expected,since you came back this afternoon,you haven't spoken a simple sentence in this house''Hannah asked
''Huh....well...you know...''Jane stammered.
''Now you see,just cut it big sis,whats troubling you,when did you become a stammerer''
Janet stood up,''I dnt know what to say,i just dont know how to start it''
''Just say it anyhow,am all ears''
Re: My Husband......... by Zanga007(m): 11:10am On Jul 22, 2014
'Fine,Jacob asked me to Lunch with his mother this afternoon,pause,hmmm and she said she was dissappointed in his choice of woman,that i was classless''she broke into tears.
Hannah stood up to calm her sister ''You and i know that you are not classless,so why are you hurting yourself over this''
''I felt humilated this noon''
''Its ok,dinner is ready,stop crying,its all a matter of time,i believe she'll come around soon.
''Thanks Hannah''.

Things had been rosy between Jacob and Janet except for the other day,when his mother had walked out on them in the sitting room,He still remembered the ugly conversation they had that night.
''Jacob wo,omo to mu wa losan,is not someone who you should be seen with'' His mum rarely spoke Yoruba this days.
''But why''
''Thats a good question and i'll explain'' she sat upright on her bed.
''CLASS is an important thing to people in our circle,a man of authority and class like you,should not stoop low to date classless ladies,money and class go paripasu,you're a man of status,see yourself as one.And again,who are her parents in this country?what power can they yield?what influence do they have?what connections do they have? Son,tell me'' she sat down
''Janets parents are well to do,her father is a lawyer and her mum is a designer,as long as they can afford the food they eat,they are okay mum'' Jacob countered
''As far as i am concerned,omo Janet abi ki lo ti pe,ko si ni level e,and you can't date her,infact i want you to stop seeing her''
Jacob laughed''Well,thats impossible,i love her and she loves me too''
''You love her looks,she loves your money,simple! All she wants is your money,get that into your head boy''she snapped
''Janet is a beautiful lady,she's smart,and she loves me not my money''
''Senator Franks daughter is a good girl,i have introduced you to Sholange,Chief Mrs Kuti's daughter,and so many more that i cannot even remember,ki ni mo nba e fa gan,temi lo ma se,you can't date that silly and classless girl''
They had argued on and on,until Ruth came in to inform them that dinner was ready.They had a quiet dinner that night,Jackie kept looking at both,mother and son during dinner,wondering what was happening.
After dinner,Jacob had a cool shower and went straight to bed,though he couldn't sleep,it was some minutes past nine,when his phone rang,he checked the caller Id,it was Janet,he picked the call and placed the phone to his ears...he wasn't expecting what he heard.'
'Whaaattttttt?'' he screamed and jumped up

Janet had called to inform Jacob that her dad just had an accident on his way back from work,he had been rushed to the hospital where he was declared clinically dead.Janet wept her eyes out,her mum and Hannah cried uncontrollably,Jacob was there to console her,he stood by her all through,he assisted them in making the burial arrangement,Janet and her mother were grateful to him.
Two weeks after the death and burial of her beloveth father,well wishers still trooped in numbers to their house.
Mother and Children were beginning to get hold of their life again,Jane was planning to go back to school for the last stretch of her final semester,when their wall came crashing.
It was a bright Monday afternoon,Mrs Odenuga was relaxing in the sitting room,when two dark men carrying suitcase came in,she asked them in and offered them water which they turned down politely,they sat on the couch in the sitting room.
''Good afternoon gentlemen,what can i do for you''she asked them,
One of them spoke up,
''Good afternoon madam,you're Mrs Odenuga i believe,we are from CBT Bank Nigeria,/they brought out their ID card\,Ikoyi branch.
We share our condolence with you on the demise of your husband,he paused,we are here to inform you that Lawyer Odenuga obtained loan from our bank,and is yet to pay back,the payment date expired three weeks ago,we would have come earlier,but for the demise of your husband,our customer,we decided to shift it to this date''

Mrs Odenuga who was relaxed on the couch before,now sat straight on the edge of her seat.She was surprised,her husband never informed of any loan,and they didn't hid things from each other.
''My husband is not a business man,he is a Lawyer and he didn't inform me about this'' Her head was throbbing hard.
The man who spoke the other time nodded to his partner to continue.The other man placed his suitcase on his lap and opened it,he brought out some papers,he cleared his throat and started.
''Here Madam,are the documents of the loan which your husband signed,the loan was obtained for his friend,using your husbands property-this very house and his car- as collaterals to be confiscated upon failure to pay,these papers were duly signed by Lawyer Odenuga.he paused
''The bank has been considerate enough to give you a week notice to vacate this building with your belongings only,as two security men have been placed outside to ensure adherence to this''
The two men stood up at the same time,''Once again,we are sorry about your husband,we share in your grief,Goodday ma''
they left.
Unknown to them that the woman looking relaxed in her seat had just fainted.........

It was late in the evening when Janet got home,she saw her mother's relaxed form on the couch,she tiptoed to her room,to pull off her clothes and shoe,she wore a blue top on shorts.

'Mum,i have told you times without number not to sleep on the couch'

she tried mimicking her mother,but there was no reply,she moved closer to touch her,yet the older woman didn't move,she stepped back,and shouted in fear.
'Mum!mum! Someone please help me' she screamed

she rushed out,two neighbours came in to help her,they hailed a taxi and carried her to the hospital,that was just two streets away.

They filled the necessary forms,and deposited some money,immediate medical attention was given to her.The doctor informed her that,the situation was under control and if they had been ten minutes late,it would have been another story entirely.

Janet paid the bills as her mother was discharged two days later.



Mrs Odenuga finally explained to her daughter all that happened that Monday afternoon.Janet was as surprised as her mother had been,when she got the news.

Janet informed Hannah too,the family was struck in awe,she also informed Jacob,who told her to calm down,he also promised to get them settled.

By the end of the week,Jacob secured a new four bedroom apartment for the family,he also gave them money,mrs Odenuga had refused the money at first,but after little persuasion from Jacob,she thanked him profusely.

The admission list for Unilorin was out the following week,Hannah was so happy to have made it,she had her name printed bodly on the merit list.They all looked sad at dinner,who would take care of the bill?her school fee,hostel fee and other necessary fees.

Janet summoned some courage to to tell Jacob,who volunteered to take care of all the bills and expenses-well,what was she expecting,those are things that happen when you have a millionaire boyfriend-,if only his mother would just accept her,hmmm,she thought.

When she broke the news to her family,they were very happy again.Janet was so happy that things were beginning to look fine for the family again.


Janet returned to school to complete the last stretch of her final year in school.She was the envy of her friends{sharon and Zainab}they were her roommates in the hostel.Jacob came to school to see her frequently,shopped for her.They always share nice times together.

Janet completed her Hnd programme soon,she was waiting for her posting,for her Youth Service.She had returned home by now.Her friend,Zainab had called to inform her their final year result were out and she made a distinction.

She danced and danced,she thanked God for seeing her through with good grades,she called Jacob at work to announce to him,he was equally happy for her and promised to take her on a treat for this.

Janet was no longer a small girl,she was now twenty three and looked ever beautiful,her friends in school often teased her calling her a 'black mami water' if there was any thing of such.

Janet's mum had been the happiest upon receiving the news,she shed tears of joy that night,she was now working again and she was in good health,they had a new househelp.Hannah was studying happily in school.


Just as Jacob promised,he called earlier in the day to inform her that,he'll be taking her on a treat in the afternoon.Janet had dressed quite simple,she wore a pinkplait short skirt on white turtle neck blouse,he took her to the beach,Jacob had asked his secretary to pack a picnic basket of lunch for two.

They had fun at the beach,ate lunch,drank wine,she enjoyed the fruits too,they played along the water side.Janet seemed to be in a very good mood,which was because,she had goodnews.


They sat on the sand,and talked.
'Dear,you look so excited today'he said

'Well,thats because am happy' she said laughing

'Do you care to share with me,that which is making you happy' he asked,moving closer to her side

'Yes Yes Yes,but you have to guess'she smiled knowingly.

'And you know,am not so good at guessing'

'Just try something jo' she pushed him gently.

'You probably won a visa lotterry' he joked.

'Hell no,i never told i wanted one'

'You're happy that you're through with school'

'Hmm,thats 10% true,keep guessing'

'Out with it dear,am not a good guesser,so dont keep me in dark'

'Well should i tell you or not' she joked

'Please tell me,i want to share in your happiness' he was wearing a more serious look.

'Okay,the postings are out,and have just been posted to Abuja for my service' she said happily

'Oh! how good'he laughed,and hugged her tightly.
There was a partial frown on his face,although he was smiling,he did a good job of trying to hid th frown,but she had seen it.
'Pretty reason to be happy though,all the same am happy for you dear' he pulled her close,and kissed her lightly on her lips.

'Pretty reason to be happy though,am happy for you'

'Thank you,i can't wait to tell mum at dinner.'

'Goodluck girl' he said

'Thanks boy'

They both burst into laughter.


Breaking the news to her mum had been so easy,her mother was so happy for her,Abuja was her dream city,she had read a lot about the place,and to think thats where Aso Rock is,and here is an opportunity to live and work in Abuja for a whole year,Nothing sounds better than that,she cleared the table after dinner.

Earlier in the day,her friend Zainab had called her to tell that,she had also been posted in Abuja,they had shared gist and laughed happily.She slept late watching Merlin season4.

It was a great day after all.

..................................
Morning Noises.The chatter of sparrows outside her window,birds calling on each other,and the rattle of dishes in the kitchen.

Janet stretched luxuriously,her mind only gradually coming back on line.It had been a wild evening,even if you balanced the pros and cons.
She sat up in bed looking at the twisted sheets,the pillows on the floor and crumpled condition of the lace at the throat of her shortie nightgown.


The kettle whistled from the kitchen,that must be Judy in there,their househelp.She was about getting out of bed,when her phone rang,the knew who the caller was,by the ringtone.And why was he calling her this early.

'Hello darling' she said laughing into the mouthpiece.

'Hello Dear'he said 'Did you sleep well?'

'Yes,i did.Hop u did too' she paused, 'And thanks for taking me out yesterday.'

'My pleasure dear,i called to inform you about a change that came up' His voice plunged low.

'Change?what is it?'

'Actually,i had to reshedule something and ...... ....' he started

'Jacob,dont patronize me,and cut this preamble' she was beginning to get afraid but didn't let it show in her voice,she craddled the phone closer to her ears.

'Be calm dear,i changed your posting' he said calmly.

'Look,i dont get you'

'You'll no longer serve in Abuja' he began.

'what? I didn't hear you well,pls come again' she managed in a cool voice.

'You heard me baby'

'Just cut the baby,' she snapped 'why did you do that,i love Abuja,and am going to serve there'

'I wanted you to be close to me,i dont want to lose you' he explained to her.

'Crap! You had no reason to do that,you didnt even consult me' she said.

'Anyway,you'll live and work here in Lagos' that sounded more like an order.

'Fine,its alright,bye'

'Its okay baby,i'll call you later' he dropped the call.


Janet let her phone drop on the bed,she was devastated,she had dreamed of working there,and here was Jacob,blowing up her plan.She sulked all morning,she took her bath and wore a worn out jean on a faded red top,she had omellete,toast bread and juice for breakfast,Judy sure knows how to make tasty meals.

Her mother had gone to work,Janet was watching Music Africa in the sitting room,when the door bell rang.
'Judy,please get the door' she called.

Judy,who was in the kitchen went to open the door.
'Good afternoon sir,how are you sir.Yes sir,she's in' she answered all at once. She opened the door wider to let him in.

'Hello Janet' He drawled

'Hi Jacob,please sit down' She said waving him to the couch.

'C'mon dear,are you still angry with me dear? You know i did it all for you,i dont want you off my sight' he said sitting by her side.

She nodded,'Its okay dear'.

'And i have a surprise for you' he glanced at her and brought out something from his pocket.

Excitement lighted up in her eyes,she leaned closer to have a look.

'Not so fast dear' he said,standing up,he drew her up, 'Come look at this',and she followed him outside.

'Where are you taking me too' she laughed,Jacob opened the gate and drew her along.

'Here,we come' he stopped in front of a fiery red Toyota Camry,a brand new car.Janet closed her eyes and opened them again,the car was still there.
Jacob handed her the key to the car

'Hey boy,i dont understand this mini drama' she looked surprised and happy at the same time.

'Hey girl,i got this for you' he said placing his hands on the beautiful car

'Oh! Jacob' understanding dawned on her,she smiled brightly
'Thank you so much' She jumped into his opened arms.

'You'll be needing it very much' he smiled at her. 'Do you like it?' he asked.

'Yes baby,i love it' She kissed him lightly on his lips.

'Lets finish that inside!'

Janet was all smiles.They went inside holding hands.




That night,Janet and her mum did a mini celebration,Judy made fried rice with chicken,they had salad to go with it.She called Hannah in school to inform her too.

She was so excited,she loved the car and it looked beautiful,sitting in their well trimmed compound.
She called Jacob later in the night to thank him again.The anger she felt in the morning was gone,it was replaced with a burning love and desire for her boyfriend.She just prayed that over time,Jacob' mother would come to accept her as part of his world,she prayed again.she lay on her bed and off she slept.
Re: My Husband......... by Zanga007(m): 11:14am On Jul 22, 2014
.........................
Jacob had become busy at work and busy means,he calls her early in the morning and late at night.His work wouldn't let him,what do you expect,a young man controlling large expanse of business,he was always travelling,just a phone call and he is on his way out of the country,to execute one project or the other,attending one meeting here and there,speaking at seminars and conventions.

The Smiths corporation occupied a large building,a three storey,spacious compound for staff and customers to pack their cars and a mini eatery that served continental dishes,being the headquarters office,it was famous all around.Clients troop in from all over the world.

Jacob's office was situated on the third floor,a very spacious office,the mahogany desk he used had two arm chairs in front of it,a mini sitting arena at the other angle where he received personal guest,a refridgeratoe and a mini bar.His secretary's office was right before his own.His secretary Sharon was a plump but tall lady,she's smart and easy to work with.

Jacob arrived at work some minutes past eight am,he nodded as Sharon greeted him,he walked to his office ,removed his suit and sat down.

Sharon came in wearing a blue jacket on a yellow camisole,she wore a blue straight knee length pant that hugged her perfect curves,she looked beautiful and too sexy for a secretary,She brought some files in.

'Sir,these are the files for BOLLYKaY group of company,Mr Kunle is through with it,and here is KFacTOrs holdings file too'she said smoothly

'Is that all!' Jacob asked placing the files on cabinet.

'Yes Sir' she excused herself,as she was about to open the door,she turned back.
'Excuse me sir,one more thing,Miss Katherine called this morning,she asked you to call her'she said carefully and went out.


At the mention of the name Katherine,his mind snapped back.
What? Why did she call? Katherine whom he fondly referred to as Kat was his ex girlfriend of nine months,they had everything going fine until she started seeing another man,a french named Sebastian.She came up with different excuses,before they finally broke up.Kat came back two months later to apologize,he accepted her apology but refused to have anything to do with her again.
He had made it clear that it was over indeed.Kat was a good girl from a rich home though she was a spoilt girl who always got everything anyhow.She had a great body with killer curves.

Jacob picked up his phone and dialled Kat' number,she picked it at the first ring.

'Hi Katherine' Jacob said,he stood up from his chair and stood by the window.

'Hello Jacob dear' she said,her voice was sharp and she sound delighted.

'Kat,Sharon informed me that you called'' he said,playing with the curtain of the window.

'Yes,i did call,i tried your mobile earlier,it was going through,that was why i called your office line,actually i want to see you' she said carefully in one breath.

'See me?' Jacob asked.

'See you,or is too much to ask of you' Kat replied

'Ofcourse,its just that am busy this days' Jacob said.

'What about dinner at my place over the weekend'she said

'Thats out of it Kat'

'How about Dinner about The StriKeRs'she asked again.

'Lunch at Foodco sounds better'

'Is saturday okay with you?'Kat said

'Thats it then,bye for now' he agreed

'Bye Jacob' She said happily into the mouthpiece

Jacob dropped his phone on the table and called for a cup of coffee.
Re: My Husband......... by Zanga007(m): 11:16am On Jul 22, 2014
Jacob left the office quarter past three,well it was quite early for someone who would not drop his pen till dusk.....he was partially married to his work.He had left because,his head was about to break,he had a head smashing ache.he drove home,as luck was on his sides,there was no traffic.
The sun shone brightly in all its glory adding to his bundle of pain.


He horned four times before Adamu opened the gate,he drove in while Adamu closed the gate and ran to meet Jacob.
'Oga Jay,welcome o' Adamu greeted him

'Adamu what took you so long to open the gate?' he wasn't smiling

'I bin dey watch TV o,oga Jay no vex,and this one wey you quick come home,se no wahala ba!'Adamu joked.

'Hey,Adamu,this is no time for jokes,i have headache,just bring my suitcase in and lock the car' Jacob said walking away from Adamu,he walked across the well trimmed lawn.

'So,Oga Jay fit get headache,nawa o,anyway make i carry this tin go inside' he locked the car and carried the bag in.


It was late in the evening when Jacob woke up,the last he remembered was having a little lunch,he had taken some pills and knocked out on his couple bed.He felt better now,he stretched his hands to pick his phone,he had eight missed calls.he dropped the phone and was abt getting up from the bed when his mother walked in.
'Huh,Mum you should knock before coming in'Jacob said looking at his mother.

'Well,am in already,sorry about that.I checked you twice but you were still relaxing and i didnt want to bother you' She said lightly,she sat down on his bed and paused.
'Mum,i know you're here for something,but cant it wait,am kind of tired' He tried to brush off his mother,because he knew that,whatever it was that brought her in must be important and he wasn't in the mood for talks.

'Son,listen,it can't wait.'she stood up and sat on the chair by his dressing table 'some rumors have been flying around about you,and i'ld like to confirm them'she said.

Jacob prayed,it wasn't about Janet,as he had anticipated,
'And what did you hear? Mother of mine,when did you start listening to gossips' he challenged her.

'Well,i listen to important ones,if you must know.Is it true what i heard?' she said

'Am no wizard mother,what have you heard' he questioned her

'You remember that poor thing,you brought home the other time,i heard you bought her family a big house and now rumor has it that you bought her a car last month.'

Jacob shifted on the bed but refused to say a word.

'My dear,answer me'

'Mum,all this has got nothing to do with you' he said,standing up from the bed.

'No,it has everything to do with me,if you must know' she snapped.

Jacob knew he was treading dangerous grounds now.'Mum,thats my personal business' he said.

'Look at you,what do you know about personal business?'

'I am the one dating her,please let me be,i know its Jackie feeding you all this nonsense' Jacob answered,trying not to get angry.


Just then Jackie walked in,not aware of the boiling atmosphere.
'I just searched the whole house looking for you Mum' she laughed happily,bursting to share her goodnews with her family,but there was no response

'Hey brother of mine,you're home early today' mother and son looked at each other.

'Now,whats happening?whats wrong?'why are you two starring at me like that?'

No answer.

As she was about to leave the room,Jacob spoke
'Sis,am tired of Mum interfering in my affairs' he almost screamed.

'Calm down Jay,What is it?' Jackie stood beside him and put her arms around his neck. 'Mum,what did you say to him' Jackie asked

Their mother eyed Jacob,'Is it too much of me,to tell my son not to waste his money on a poor thing!' she snapped

'Mum,don't you ever call Janet a poor thing again,and this conversation is OVER!'
his voice thundered,and walked out of the room.

'Jacob Adekunle Smith,you walk out on me because of that poor thing,i can't believe this' she walked round the room and sat on the bed looking sad.

'Mother,so it is about this lady again?huh?Jay is no longer a child,he's twenty six!

'Please Mother,don't get worked up over nothing.'

'The poor thing is after his name and M0NEY!' she sighed and walked out too,leaving Jackie to follow her.

Jacob screamed at Adamu and ordered him to open the gate.Adamu knew his boss rarely screamed,he opened the gate and Jacob drove out,it was dark already.
Just as Adamu was about closing the gate,Ruth came by carrying a basket.
'Ruth baby,wetin i fit give you o'Adamu said moving to her side.
'Don't give me anytin,here is your food' she said dropping the basket and turned to leave.
'So?you wan comot like that abi,com inside make we play small jo' Adamu teased her
'Hey,dnt touch me o,if you dnt wnt me to shout'
suddenly adamu grabbed her waist and started kissing her,Ruth made no move to stop him,he bbegan gropping at her round and soft bosom,Ruth laughed too.
'Ruth,where are you' Someone screamed.
Re: My Husband......... by Zanga007(m): 11:48am On Jul 22, 2014
.................
Jacob didnt go home that night,he lodged in an hotel,he had called Janet to say hi,his mother called too,but he refused to pick it up,he wondered why his mother was bent on making unnecessary trouble for him,he had enough on his plate already,work consumed most of his time and energy,the little left was already being taken up by his heart robe Janet,so why would his mother be stiring stilled waters.....

It wasn't as if Janet craved for trouble,she hardly visited him at home,she was humble,calm,kind hearted,gracious and smart.Her family loved him,what else.
He rolled on the soft bed,pulling the pillow to his chest,his body quivered,there's something about Janet that usually stroke him up,he was experiencing feelings that can't be explained,in the office,home, and everywhere he found himself the only thought that sat gallantly on his mind was Janet Odenuga.

One thing that baffled him was Janets refusal to make love with him,the relationship is getting close to twenty four months yet,he had never seen the colour of her pants,the highest thing they had done was kiss,touch and hug and each time he tried getting her to talk about it,she would go stiff and moody.Mere thinking of her excited him,his third leg stood up ,he pushed it down,his soul longed for her,and his body sought hers.


He thought about Katherine and he realised that both ladies were different in every way.The only thing they had in common was beauty,any other thing stood apart,but it was clear that they are made up of different items,its of no use comparing salt with sugar.His mother really liked Katherine,and consistently asked after her,even when he told her they broke,she tried all she could to bring them back,but he stood firmly on his grounds,it was a big NO from him.she had stopped trying and suggested other beautiful ladies,to which he declined,her friends daughter,chief that daughter,senator this daughter,most of whom were spoilt,cute but dull women,he wasn't even old at that.That reminded him about his Lunch with Katherine,honouring her invite was good because she could be a bag of trouble when she wanted to be,he remembered his time with Katherine,she had a great body,and good bedmatics,her full bosom,he loved handling them,her hips,her flat tommy,Kat could go extra miles to satisfy him on the bed.he didnt want to think about that now.

...............
It was a warm saturday morning,days when you feel like partying,though she wasn't one for club stuffs,she still loved going out and seeing beautiful places,she had woken up in high spirits today,she soaked herself in a warm bath,she let her mind wander through the past two years,and all Jacob had done for her,she was a happy woman at twenty three,dating one of the most elegible bachelor in Nigeria,she sure knew she was an envy to many ladies,Jacob had crawled into her life suddenly,lighting up her world,his mother was the darkness that wanted to filter her joy,happiness surged through her body,at the thought of Jacob Adekunle Smith.He was patient with her,she had denied him access to her body with little explanation for it,she wasn't a church person though,but she had vowed to keep her body for just one man,her husband,and the father of her children,if she ever had any,she loved children.Jacob was tolerating her and she knew,she only prayed that he could wait,until she gave in,.....but would he wait? That question burned in her mind.

Janet thought about her lovely sister and her kind hearted mother,she loved her family,she gave her love to Jacob,leaving for her NYSC camp would be a bit difficult,she was in Lagos now,no thanks to Jacob.she hadn't even packed yet camp was just 7days away.

She had called Jacob to ask if he could make it, to take her out for lunch,but he said he had ''an all afternoon meeting with some foreign clients''.

She ate her brunch quietly reading a soft sell magazine,it was about celebreties and their rate of divorce, she was enjoying her meal of boiled rice and plantain with fresh fish stew supporting it with a can of coke.



The door bell rang,bringing her back from the world of celebs,she had sent Rose to get her some things,so she had to get the door herself,the bell rang again,the caller was being impatient,she stood to get the door.

She opened the door,and stood there staring at the caller,that was the least person she expected to see.......
