Kelvin walked out without as much as a backward glance.He opened the door and left.Toun watched him leave,something screamed inside of her to go and pull him back,but she was so afraid to act.What was it about asking a man to leave when all you honestly want is his hands around your arms...She slumped on the chair,hot tears rolling down her cheeks.Why was she made to be a broken woman.Why?God was not being fair with her.It was getting dark,she went into the bathroom to wash her face,and changed into something more comfy,she made for the kitchen,she had to look good to avoid another question and answer segment with Hannah.She boiled some yams and proceeded to blend some pepper and onions for the egg,when she heard the sitting room door open.It must be Hannah she knew.She washed her hands and went to check,she was taken aback with the sight that greeted her..........
''Oh my God!'' Adetoun gasped at the sight of a teary eyed Hannah.Hannah slumped on the seat,her eyes closed and her hands on her laps,she looked bitter,tired and angry.''What happened to you?''Toun asked.Hannah explained to Toun,how she became friends with Ade,how he stood by her always.And the latter part which Toun knew about,how they started a new relationship again.''I know all that.''Toun said anxious to know what happened.''Well,this evening he wanted... .... us .....to...he''Hannah stammered.''He wanted what?''''Sex''Hannah said flatly.''And?''''And what?''
''And what happened after that?''''I told him,i wasn't prepared and he got angry.''''Why are men so selfish,the fact that you're not ready now,doesn't mean you will not be ready another day.''Toun said sitting across Hannah,her hands folded across her chest,she sighed.''You don't get it.''Hannah looked up,how was she to say it in a manner void of embarrassment.''I get you.''Toun said.''Men are books,you can't read all'f them,notwithstanding thats not a reason to get angry.''Hannah sighed,sitting up in her seat,''I've never had sex.''Adetoun turned around,her eyes rolled in their socket with mock surprise.she must have heard wrong.she burst into laughter.''Whats funny?''Hannah asked feeling embarrassed.''I didn't know,you're now a comedian.''Toun said holding her sides.''I'm serious here.''Hannah said,all expression screamed serious.''Did you fall from mars or jupito,this is the twenty first century girl,how can you?''''You make it sound like a crime.''''Its not a crime,but our norms are changing,the society no longer cherish Virgin girls because they don't even.....exist.''Toun said.''Well,i am,i want to get rid of this thing.''she said pointing towards her thighs.''I'm just afraid.''''He who has a head,is capless and that who is lucky to have a cap,has got no head.''Toun said,as a naughty tear dropped from her eyes.''I would give anything to become the pure innocent child i used to be years back,before.....i.....i...''Toun broke into tears.Hannah watched helplessly as Toun cried,the waters streaming down her face in a rush.She could not bring herself to console her friend who was more than a sister,she relaxed in her seat and her pain consumed her.Who will console these two?

................. ''You should at least take a sip of that drink,its getting hot.''Paul was saying to a gloomy Jacob.It was a friday evening,and the guys were at the club,chilling to take away the stress.Jacob was having a hard time,and he wasn't partaking in the conversation,as he stared away at his drink.''Drink?''Jacob sighed,his forehead creased in a deep frown.''''Yes,take a sip.''Jaiye said filling his glass again.''Will that solve my problem?''''Not drinking,will not solve it either,just relax and lets help you out.''Paul said,his gaze on his friend.Jacob lifted his glass,and to his lips,he drank the glass halfway,holding the back of his head as he dropped the glass.''Stop that,there are watchful eyes around.''Jaiye said.''Who do you think sent this man after our dear Jane?''Jaiye asked.Jacob's eye widened in their socket.''Our Jane?''''Oops sorry,Jacob's Jane.''Jaiye grinned.''Better.''''Who else other than Katherine.''Paul joined in.''Katherine has left me for good.''Jacob put in defending her.''How sure are you about this?''''Our Katherine has a superrich boyfriend who is proposing marriage anyway.''''And when last did you speak with her?''Jaiye asked.''Two weeks ago when she rescheduled my appointment with her boyfriend,who is partnering me in the Dangote cement contract.''Jacob explained.''Why partner with him?''Paul asked. ''The proposed firm hand picked their choice firm for the contract,or do i back out of a business deal worth 2.8billion naira,because he's dating my ex?''''Ofcourse not,apart from Kate who else could be doing this?''''Or,is there some other girl,you're shacking away from our knowledge.''Jaiye winked.''Everyone is not as naughty as you.''''There is non,that i know of.''''As long as he doesn't make another attempt on her,lets watch.''Paul said.''I hope so,for his sake.''Jacob spoke,his anger sipping away.''Hows marriage life?''Paul laughed at Jaiye.''Cool,it just shows i'm serious and mature than you guys.''he eyed his friends.''And our bride?''Paul asked mocking Jaiye.''My bride,my woman.''''I just pray you give that thing in between your leg a break from other ladies and.....''''Hey''Jaiye cut him short.''Stop the lecture,my woman is good and i'm taking good care of her.''Jaiye boasted.''Thanks heaven,marriage life must be wonderful indeed.''Jacob laughed.''Oh let me inform you guys that i and Janet will be having our family introduction next month.''His friends congratulated him happily.''I better find a woman,before its late.''Paul laughed....
Biola looked fresh than ever,she had enjoyed a great time with her newly wedded husband after they returned from their honeymoon.She now lived in his beautiful two storey buiding in ajah.he had asked her to stop work,she would design from home and send to her workers who would do the design,but she could go over once in a while.Kenneth was treating her like a queen that she was,his two children had returned from America to congratulate them and flown back afterwards,she was happy and glowed from within.Biola and Funmi had been planning and planning over the family introductions that were coming up by

the weekend.Biola was happy that Jane was handling her new store well,haven employed a manager,sales clerk,an accountant and a host of others,she was glad that her daughter would be tieing the knot soon.It was a breezy wednesday evening,Jane arrived at the Kenneths,she parked her car and walked into the house.Her mother was just setting the table for dinner,Jane dropped her bags and hugged her mother,greeting her step father too.He invited her to join them for dinner,to which she accepted.After a good dish of semovita and egusi soup with a pack of iced home made lemon juice,Kenneth excused mother and daughter to take some rest.''How are you?''Biola asked smiling at her grown up daughter.''I'm fine and you?''''Fine as usual,Funmi was here this afternoon,and we've selected the dishes to be prepared,Jackie is doing that anyway.''''Thanks mother.''Jane embraced her,''I came to show you the clothes Jacob brought.''Biola collected the bag and brought out its content,''This is lovely,but can you tie iro and buba?''''I'll learn,Ajoke promised to help me with that,she's arriving on Friday.''Jane laughed.''The shoes and bag are lovely too my dear.''''I love them too.''Jane packed them into the bag.''Have they called you?''''Oh,your father's people.''''Yes.''''Yes,they promise to be in attendance,and asked if there was anything they could help with.''''And what did you tell them?''''I told them to come with their heavy purses.''Biola laughed.''And i trust them,they will.''
''This makes me miss father more.''''I miss him too,but what can we do,Kenneth has been so good to me and he's ever ready to accept his fatherly roles over you.''Biola said.''May God bless his good heart.''''Amen.i think you should be on your way now,its getting late or will you sleep over?''''No mother,i'll find my way.''''Your sisters won't be able to come,they're starting their exams on monday.''Biola informed her daughter,as she saw her to the door.''Goodnight dear,and please drive carefully.''''I will,goodnight mother.''Biola stood by the door,till she drove out of the compound,things will surely get better.She smiled,and walked into the house.........................The traffic was light,so she made her way home steady.Lucy had called to inform her that she'll come home for her introductions as that would afford them a chance to talk better.Jane pulled the car to a stop at the gate,she got down to open the gate,that reminded her,Jacob had said he would get her a guard to man the gate.She drove in and got down,she closed the gate and headed in.There was a paper stucked to the door,she was surprised,it would be Jacob anyway,she took the paper in and locked the door before moving to her bedroom.She was sleepy and fell into bed after pulling off her clothes and shoe.........
School curriculum was moving fast,lectures were rounded up,test conducted,notes filled up.Hannah was giving her studies full concentration,she had succeeded in making things up with Ade,as he needed to concentrate too,since he was writing his final papers.Their relationship was going steady,one step at a time,even though Rukayat was still on her kneels,he had made up his mind to turn a deaf ear,and she didn't even suspect a thing between him and Hannah.Which was good for them anyway,she couldn't stand making trouble withat Rukayat of a girl.Kelvin had stopped calling Adetoun,who was acting irrattional.She ignored his calls,now she missed his calls than ever.It hurt her to know that she pushed him away,and her heart still beat for him.She'd taken to her studies,she needed to study as best as she could.Disappointing herself was not an option,and she
Re: My Husband......... by udison(m): 6:42am On Aug 27, 2014
wouldn't Jacob disappointed too.And for her so called parent,that was a story for another day.The relationship between them was dwindling,this happened after Hannah tried to talk to her about Kelvin.Adetoun had almost screamed down the house,asking Hannah not to meddle in her affairs,she'd shut her up and walked out.This was really affecting the girls as each one kept to herself.Adetoun's life was a a square box again,from home to school to the library to church and home again.She had made up her mind,no boyfriends,no attache.It was so easy this days for them to argue over the slightest of things.It was friday evening and Hannah had a date with her boyfriend.She came into the sitting room dressed in a black sleeveless gown with a red belt wound securely around her tommy.As she moved,her weavon breezled from her shoulders to her well made up face.She looked beautiful in the gown and her fair skin shown brightly.Adetoun was in the sitting room,painting her fingers,when Hannah came in.''Em...em Toun,im going out.''She said moving towards the door.Adetoun raised her head,''Wait!''Hannah stopped in her tracks doing a u-turn,''Isn't that my gown?''''Yes,its yours.''''You didn't bother to ask for permission before wearing my dress?''Toun glared,Hannah was a bit taller than her,which made the gown go up her knees a little and she looked perfect in it.''Permission? From who?you?''''Yes,because that dress belongs to me.''Toun said.''Get out of my dress now.''''I can't believe you just said that to me.''Hannah smiled.''Anyway,i'm not stepping a foot into that room,maybe some other time,i'll remember not to touch your dress again.''Toun stood and blocked the door,''You think i'm kidding right?''she scowled''I can see you're spoiling for a fight,but i don't have your time.''Hannah hissed.''Did you just hiss at me,i swear i'll beat you to coma this minute,if you don't put that thing off.''Toun was getting ready for a fight.''Let me go''Hannah yelled pushing Toun away.
''You spoilt girl,who cannot make up her mind about a man,cheating with your friends boyfriend behind her back.''''Jeez! Adetoun.'' Hannah rolled her eyes.''Yes?''''You call me spoilt?''Hannah was surprised.''Then you're a shameless dam,you were.. ....you ....are.....''she shut her mouth before she could do more damage with her mouth.Adetoun's eyes were filled with tears that threatened to spill.''Go on and finish your statement.''she cried.''Whatever.''Hannah hissed walking out the door and slamming it hard.That night,Ade had followed her home,after she explained all that happened to him as an excuse for standing him up on their date.He apologised profusely to Adetoun,who was folded up in a chair crying,her eye were red.He tried to settle the dispute but left when he realised he wasn't making head.That had become an habit,if they were not arguing over a scarf,it would be a sandal,or what to cook,who would wash,or what station to watch on Tv,these were things they had done in love.Going to class was an issue,each girl left at her own time.It was a good thing,they would not be attending Jane's introduction on sunday anyway.They were slowly drifting apart.So much for being sisters or was it friends?
The morning light streamed in through the open curtain,bringing warmth into the room.Jane woke up with a strong headache,as she tried to get up from bed.She pulled the duvet away and got up,washing her face in the bathroom,she drank a glass of warm milk and two tablets of paracetamol.she returned to the sitting room,turning on the Tv,she picked the remote control and lay on the sofa.Her phone was ringing from the bedroom,she got up to pick,it was her soon to be mother in law.Funmi had made it an habit to call her every morning.she had just dropped the call when she caught sight of the rumpled paper on her bed.Her head was getting better,she opened the paper to view its content when Jacob's call came
Re: My Husband......... by udison(m): 6:48am On Aug 27, 2014
through,unconsciously crumbling the paper,she dropped it in the waste bin as she walked out to continue her call.She was glad,everything was falling in place for her and Jacob.she wished Saturday would come fast,she couldn't wait to see Ajoke and Lucy again.She showered and had lunch,before going over to the store.she was glad she was making progress,the store as usual was agog with customers and her workers were being cheerful and accomodating as the customers selected their choice.The store had recorded a total sales of three hundred and eighty five thousand on its grand opening,and since then sales had been on the rise.Jacob had handed her the documents and papers that certified that the store was hers.Could there ever be a man like Jacob? No,she smiled to herself as the manager gave accounts to her in her private office.She left the office five pm,she needed her rest and Jacob had warned her to be careful and take enough rest.she got into her car and drove out of the complex.Her head high,with a playful smile on her lips...................''Jaiye,be serious for once,did you make the order?''Jacob asked rolling up the sleeves of his shirt as he drove.Jaiye's voice came over through the earpiece stuck in his ears.''I did.''Jaiye laughed.''And stop getting tensed,things will be fine.''''Thanks man,i'm meeting with paul we have some things to talk about.''Jacob finished before dropping the phone.Jacob was as happy as a horse today,he would be much happier when sunday's introduction were over and done with.A careless driver swerve into his lane,almost hitting his car,he swore under his breath as he took a turn.He had better things to worry about...................''Look who we have here.''Jane screamed when Lucy arrived later on saturday evening.Ajoke had arrived in the afternoon,they gisted about old times and laughed as they discussed.''Hey Jane.''Lucy hugged Jane,even in her flay chiffon blouse,her stomach had bulged a little only a careful observer would notice that anyway and she was five months gone already.Jane could feel the weight of her sorrows in those two words.''Hi Ajoke.''Lucy greeted,''how's your husband.''''He's fine,thanks.''
The girls began another conversation as they prepared dinner.The house bubbled with life,Jane missed the prescence of her sisters anyway.There had been much celebration later that night,when Ajoke confided in her friends that she was 3months pregnant.Jane had embraced her happily.The ladies,planned for sunday and Ajoke taught Jane how to tie her iro properly over her buba.It was so much fun for them.Even amidst the laughter,Jane noticed Lucy's heavy eye,she was dieing to speak with her,she wanted to hear TaliRoyce reaction about their baby.It was late in the night before,they slept off.Jane felt someone tapping her lightly,she opened her eye,it was Lucy,her eyes were red which seemed to say she had been crying,sitting up in bed she patted her side and Lucy sat.''Jane,i spoke with him.''Lucy began,playing with her fingers.''And what did he say?''Jane asked.Rather than speak,Lucy removed her gown.Jane wondered what she intended.''Look at my body.''''What?''Jane covered her mouth before she could scream.''Sue him''''Jane i can't.''Lucy said as she cried.''I love him''''You love him beating you?take a look at your body,a man who punches a pregnant lady is a mad man.''Jane said.''What can i do,i have promised to keep my baby away from the media,so that it won't affect his musical career.''''I don't even understand you Lucy,why don't you stand up to him?''''Jane,i love him,i can't do anything he doesn't like,he'll get mad and hit me.''''Okay,can i speak to him?''''Thats publicising him,he would bite off my head.''''So much for love.''Jane muttered.''Why would you want to suffer in silence?''
Re: My Husband......... by udison(m): 7:09am On Aug 27, 2014
''Jane,i'm confiding in you because i trust you,father is very mad with me,mother doesn't want me around.''she sighed.''You're all i've got now.''''And i'll never let you down babe.''Jane kissed Lucy's bulging stomach.''Oh,i love you for that.''Lucy smiled.''I think you should sleep now,tomorrow is going to be a big day.''Jane smiled again.
.......................A beautiful day it looked,right from the sky to the breezy atmosphere,everything seem to be in place.Even the birds sang lovely tunes this morning.Jane had woken up with a bright smile on her beautiful face,she knelt by her bedside and prayed to God,something she had been doing regularly for the past three month.Her friends were up already,''We didn't want to disturb your sleep.''Ajoke smiled,winking at her friend.''Thanks girls,let me take my bath.''Jane said,she stopped abruptly.''I perceive something from the kitchen.''Ajoke and Lucy looked at each other and shared a smile.''Its Ajoke preparing spaghetti sauce.''Lucy said.''Oh,thanks dear,its smells good,i can't wait.''Jane laughed as she made for the bathroom.Biola had called three times,asking the girls to be fast.As the Odenuga's family have started arriving and were asking to see their daughter.They had a quick breakfast,while they ate Lucy excused herself from the table twice,and the third time she rushed off to vomit.Ajoke starred as Lucy rushed off the third time.''Are you sure she's alright?'' she asked.''No,i'm not.''Lucy answered returning to her seat.''I'm pregnant.''''Wow!''Ajoke laughed.''Congratulations! I'm happy for you.''
Lucy and Jane shared a look that said congratulation indeed.''Why are you two staring at me like i just pooed on my body?''Ajoke asked.Lucy stood up,and left the table,it was apparent she was about to cry.Ajoke and Jane followed her as she made for the guest room.Sitting on the bed,Jane and Ajoke sat at both sides.Jane explained all about the pregnancy to Ajoke,who was surprised and at the same time pitied her,the girls did all they could to console her and make her get herself together.Ajoke and Lucy helped her dress up,Jane tied the expensive white iro firmly over the Buba,and she looked smart.This was her first time of wearing an Iro and buba.She did her make up,and Ajoke helped her tie the red gele,with shoes,bag and jewellries to match.One would think,she had just dropped from Jupiter.Soon,they were on their way to the Kenneths where the introduction would take place...............''You look lovely sweetheart.''Biola said meeting Jane by the car.She also greeted Ajoke and Lucy,thanking them for standing by their friend.''Your father's people are here already.''Biola said as Jane and her friends got down from the car.''Oh mother.''Jane said.''Come and say hello to them,they've been so good to Kenneth,i'm so happy.''Biola smiled,tieing her wine lace iro very well.Funmi and Biola wore the same cloth,with gele and bags to go along.This was not just a union of their children,it was a union of two lost but found friends.Jane greeted her father's family,who were all happy to see her.Even her mother's sister was here already,she was glad to see them all.The programme was slated for 10am,and it was some minutes to eleven,yet Jacob and his family were no where in sight.Jane had began to fret.Her mother and friends calmed her down,saying they were probably stuck in traffic....................''You guys should block us at Suzuki junction,so that we can move together.'' Jacob was on the phone with Jaiye,he dropped the call and walked into the sitting room.Funmi sat on the three seater upholster,she was dressed in a wine lace iro and buba with silver,bag and
Re: My Husband......... by udison(m): 7:20am On Aug 27, 2014
shoe to match.An expensive silver necklace sat on her plump fresh looking neck.''Jacob,what are you still looking for,its almost 12pm.''Funmi said looking anxiously at her son.Jacob sat by her side,''Calm down mother,Jackie forgot something in her room,we'll get moving now.''''I hope everything has been packed,Biola has been calling.''Funmi said.Jackie appeared and they left for the Kenneths..................As soon as the Smith's family arrived,Jane's heart light up again,today was the beginning of a new journey.Biola and Funmi embraced each other warmly.Even had hugged Jane too,she looked happy again.Jacob looked handsome in his white lace,Buba and sokoto with a red cap on his head.He had stood for some seconds staring at the heavenly made woman standing before him.He controlled his heart,which was pumping blood faster than usual.Jaiye and Paul stood by his sides also dressed in cream lace buba and sokoto.''You're sweating man,relax.''Jaiye whispered into his ears.''I will,its just... .... .....''Jacob began.''Shhh.....shhshh...nothing is going to mar this day,just relax.''Paul's smile was also re-assuring,so he relaxed and took his waiting seat.A man who appeared to be the Mc took the mic and beckoned to everyone to move closer and have a sit.''The programme is about to begin...Good afternoon.''he started the introductions.
''Oh my God,this taste good.''Jacob said,cleaning the sides of his mouth.''I discovered this place,last week curtsey of my wife,they also make take home dishes too.''Jaiye said pouring juice from a pack.He took a sip and began to laugh.Jacob was startled,he stared at his friend.''Whats funny?''''I remember your drama on the day of your introduction:''Jaiye paused.''You kept looking back,checking the gate as if someone would barge in any moment.''
''You silly man,you still remember that.''Jacob smiled embarrassed.''How can i forget that look on your face.''Jaiye teased him more.''You love her so much,and its very obvious.''Jacob stared at his juice for some seconds,''You know what Jaiye,if anyone goes funny around her.''he clenched his fist.''I'll squeeze the very life out of that person.''''Easy man,no one is snatching your bride anyway.''Jaiye laughed.Jacob picked his call,it was his secretary,his attention was needed at the office urgently.He had to leave.''Jaiye,i gotta run now,maybe we should do this again.''he said finishing his drink.''Yes,i'ld love that.''Jaiye said,getting up.''We'll meet at the golf culb on sunday.''Jacob said as they both walked out of the eatery and got into their different cars............ Jane got down from the car,parking her car in the compound,she had just arrived home,or rather Girls Dormitory as Jacob would put it.she smiled locking the car and walking in.''Hey girls'' she called dropping her bag on the sofa,as she sat down.''Hi sis'' Hannah answered coming into the sitting room,she sat down placing her Samsung x3 on the table.''You're home early.''she said.''Yes,i got something to show you guys.''She said peeling off her shoes.''Really?.''Hannah asked.''What is it anyway.'' her curiosity growing by the minute.''Where's Adetoun?'' Jane asked.''I'm not her keeper sis.''Hannah said,a frown etching on her face as she scrolled through her phone.''Not again Hannah.''Jane said,a bit of anger sipping in her voice.''We're supposed to make her happy and not sad.''''Why is it that,no matter what happens you take her side? Why?''

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.
Re: My Husband......... by Flakkydagirl: 12:55pm On Sep 01, 2014
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 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.
Re: My Husband......... by Flakkydagirl: 12:57pm On Sep 01, 2014
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''
''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''
''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.........
Re: My Husband......... by Flakkydagirl: 12:59pm On Sep 01, 2014
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.

'I can't wait to tell mum.
'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.
Re: My Husband......... by Flakkydagirl: 1:01pm On Sep 01, 2014
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 Flakkydagirl: 1:06pm On Sep 01, 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.
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 began gropping at her round and soft bosom,Ruth laughed too.
'Ruth,where are you' Someone screamed.
Re: My Husband......... by Flakkydagirl: 1:09pm On Sep 01, 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.......
Staring at Janet was Lucy her part time friend.
'Hello Jane' she laughed,waving her hand in Jane's face.

'Hi Lucy'she replied hugging her.

'How are you doing!'Janet said, hugging her tightly.

'Before i say something,won't you ask me in'Lucy said laughing.

Janet opened the door wider to let her in, 'Don't mind me,come right in' she said.

Lucy jumped on the couch,crossing her leg,Janet was least surprised,Lucy was a fun loving person,she lived in a beautiful house opposite theirs,she lived with her parents and her two older brothers,Her father was a medical doctor,who owned a psychiatric hospital and two other hospitals,he partnered various organisations,he was always busy,though strict he had a spoilt daughter,Lucy's mother owned the biggest supermart in the estate with over fifty workers.

Lousy Lucy as Jane and Hannah often referred to her behind her,loves talking,she would go and on about her handsome brothers and their money.

'Jane,you're always looking beautiful' She complimented,folding her hands on her leg.

'Pot calling kettle black,i can say the same for you too' she said smiling.

'Its been months i saw you'

'Huh,No,its just four weeks you've been to school.' she replied.

'How's Hannah and your mum' She asked.

'They're both doing fine,and you'she said playing with her hair.

'Aren't you going to offer me something to drink' Lucy asked 

'Oh,sorry,i forgot my manners,what do i offer you?'
she said moving toward the kitchen.

'What do you have in there?' she asked.

'I'ld have to check,so hold on'Janet answered.

'Jane,wait how about we go out and catch some fun!' she said going in to the kitchen to meet Janet.

'Yeees yes yes'She shouted.'i want us to go out' she said laughing.She was finally going to catch some fun indeed.She was already thinking of what to wear.

'Jane? Are you ok?' she asked suddenly.

'Ofcourse,i am,what made you ask!'

'Thats because this is the first time you'll agree to go out without much persuassion' she paused 'Am kind of surprised'

'well,i just feel happy today' she smiled with her eyes,'so where are we going to' she asked 

'what do you think of FoodCo Restaurant?'

Janet rolled her eyes 'That Restaurant is expensive' she said

'Hey girl,the bill is on me,so relax'

'Fine,let me change my clothes then'

'Jane,you have ten minutes to do that,don't stay all day' she stood to go out 'I have to get dressed too.'

Janet knew Lucy was actually making jest of herself,giving her ten minutes,when She,Lucy,could spend two days dressing for a party,Janet wore a chocolate chenille fitted dress,with a white flat baby shoe,she used light make up,and held her hair with two red pin.She checked herself in the mirror,what she saw in there screamed lovely at her,it was thirty minutes of dressing,yet Lucy was not out.

'ElEmEnT perfume,this perfume has a striking saint,you could smell it fifty yards away,even though Lucy was not in sight,but she could smell her because of the perfume,it has this strong effect on people and clothes,Lucy came in rocking a 5inches heel,with a short white dress that has a low neckline,she adorned her neck with a glittering tiny piece of necklace.She looked extremely cute.
'Are u ready Jane' She drawled,turning for Jane to check her out.

'This is.....you look...huh....em....great,great,yes great and lovely too' Janet stammered,the back of the dress from her neck to her waist was sheer lace. Strong,stubborn and staring eyes could see through them.

The two ladies stood side by side.Janet said,

'Don't you think this is too much for Lunch' she asked with wide eyes.

'Jane,i love what happened the other time i turned my back,you were stammering,i want every eyes that sees this' pointing at her backside 'i want their speech slurred because of me' she laughed.

'If thats what you want,you're sure going to get it' she laughed too.

'Don't forget who my father is' she said.

'And don't you forget who my boyfriend is too' she said giggling.

'I won't,hmmmm,i like your new car' Janet nodded thanks to her.

'Are we going in my car'She asked.

Lucy led the way,'Thanks,but No to your offer,because we're going in mine' she said pointing at a blue benz parked outside the gate.
Lucy had three beautiful cars to herself.She was a lucky girl,Janet thought.

Finally,the two gorgeous ladies entered the car,with Lucy on the wheels,they set out for FoodCo Restaurant,which was just an hour,twenty minutes drive away,they left home quarter past One.

With the look of things,the outing looked like it would be an interesting one,Janet thought in her heart,using the seat belt,she relaxed,ready to enjoy the drive while Lucy chatted away.
Jacob returned home the next morning,he parked his car in the garage and walked into the house,his mother was in the sitting room watching a movie,just as he entered,she turned to look at him,then quietly return her gaze to the screen.Jacob didn't utter a word,and his mother also kept her peace.He went to his room.

The following day was a Saturday,and he had planned his movement,his secretary had informed him that,he had some messages to attend to and some calls to return.Sharon had handled the ones she could.He used the Gym,took his bath and ate his meal,in the other sitting room.
He sat relaxed on the couch and called their househelp.
'Ruth' he called.

'Yes oga,you called me' she answered.

Jacob turned to look at her,she was wearing a long skirt that was slit in the front,and a tight blouse,her bosom were pushed up,Jacob wondered what pushed the bosom,if it was the bra or the blouse,the bosom looked firm and round.
'Oga Jay' Ruth called again,tracing Jacob's eye to her chest,what was he looking at,she wondered but dare not ask. 

Jacob realised that he had been staring, 'Sorrry...em,sorry about that,am relaxing here,and i don't want anyone to disturb me,okay? 
'Yes sir,but....Oga,what am i to do?' She asked.

'You're to make sure no one comes in here,okay?' 

'Yes sir' she walked away wriggling her buttocks,she closed the glass door quietly.

Ruth went back to her room,she sat dejected on her bed,her plan had failed,she had worn the push up bra to make Jacob notice her,the slit on the skirt was also to get his attention,when she caught him starring,she thought her plan had worked,only for him to recover quickly.She hissed and returned to the Kitchen. 

Jacob dozed off only to be woken up by the bleeping of his phone,he picked it up,it was Jane,she had asked to have Lunch with him,to which he declined,lieing that he had a meeting to attend to,he was about resuming his nap when Katherine called to remind of their Lunch together.

He stood up,and stretched his legs,he deliberated on what to wear,after an hour he settled for a crisp,stark white shirt on jeans,he decided to look casual,Katherine had not mention that it was an official lunch,so he dressed lightly,his deep set brown eyes illuminated against his white shirt.He looked handsome.

He drove to Foodco,he arrived just in time to see Katherine going him.Jacob watched Kat walk to a table at the far end of the big room,it looked liked she had called earlier to request for a table.As she walked,eyes turned to admire the beautiful lady,some that were bold enough smiled,Kat swayed her hips,whether it was deliberate or not,was what he couldn't answer.

Jacob got to the table,as she sat down,he pulled the other chair facing her and sat comfortably.
'Good afternoon Jacob' She smiled beautifully exposing white set of teeths,her lipstick glistered red.

'Goodafternoon Katherine' he said smiling,he had made up his mind to be very polite and sharp with her,but here he was smiling stupidly.
Katherine beckoned to a waiter,who took their orders and left.As she spoke with the waiter,he stared,all he could see was a tofee-toned body draped in an oversized fringe shawl.The soft iridescent material in shimmering bronze tones slipped off her shoulder revealing more bare skin and the lush swell of her bosoms.

A hot ball of healthy lust rolled through Jacob,few men would probably be immune to such an obvious temptation.

She smiled warmly to the waiter,he soon returned with a bottle of white wine,their mushroom,vegetable salad and apppetizer.She waved him off.
They ate their meal quietly,they were almost through with meal when Jacob spoke.Katherine sure had plans he knew.

'Hmm,hmmm' he cleared his throat.

'Katherine,you wanted to see me!' he asked placing his fork down.

'Foodco serves good meal,this is tasty' she said pointing at her chicken 'Thats why i brought you here.

Jacob knew she was avoiding his question. 'Kat,i do not have all day,why did you ask to see me?' he said.

Katherine continued chewing the food in her mouth,when she was done,she answered.
'Jay dear,lets enjoy this sumptous meal,we'll talk after that.' she said,using her fork to pick the salad.

'Well,am done eating', he eyed her pushing his plates aside.

'Jay,calm down,actually,i just came into the country last week,i was holidaying in Las Vegas,you know all work and no play makes Kat a dull girl' she smiled into his face,caressing the shawl on her shoulders revealing the pink swell on her bosom,Jacob swallowed and drank his wine hurriedly to calm his jaunting nerves.He wanted to get up and leave.

Just then two ladies walked in from the side door,he didn't see their face,but their behind spoke volume,heads turned,he glanced around and saw the rapt attention of several men doing the same thing,STARE

The two ladies walked to the other end of the restaurant and......
Janet and Lucy sat at the far end of the expensive restaurant,the ladies knew they were causing some sort of commotion right now,eyes were staring at the gorgeous ladies sitting alone.

They debated on what to eat,Lucy almost tore the menu card in her haste,the waiter soon returned with their lunch,served neatly on their plates,Janet had coleslaw,fruit salad with crunched chicken,while Lucy was eating her Jollof rice with chicken and fruit dressing eagerly.

Lucy ordered for two bottles of expensive red wine,Janet had complained,saying a bottle was enough and that they were not drunkards,but Lucy insisted.

The ladies chatted on and on about various issues ranging from men to cars,food,love and everything Lucy could think of,the girl could talk o,she always had something to say and never ran out of words.

Janet looked around the restaurant,she was careful not to stare,her eyes strolled to the other corner of the eatery,she saw someone who looked like Jacob,because she thought it couldn't be Jacob,he had a meeting to attend to ofcourse,but her mind told her it was him sitting across a cream skinned beautiful lady,they both looked relaxed and were chatting happily like long lost couple,she could see that the lady was flirting with him openly.

She held her breath,shut her eyes,opened them again,the couple were still there,it was not an apparition,she blinked,but it was true,it was Jacob.And he looked so comfortable with his lunch partner.

Her stomach rumbled,her toes curled beneath her feet,she felt sick inside.

Lucy noticed that her demeanor had changed,Janet suddenly looked cold.

'Jane,whats wrong' she asked anxiously.

'I'm fine' she replied curtly.

'You haven't said a word in five minutes.'

'Lucy am fine' she managed a smile.

'You're fine and you're picking at your meal bah!'

'Hey,girlfriend,mo wa okay,am fine'

'If you are fine,then eat,or do you want to order for something else,the bill is on me and am not complaining o' she laughed.

Janet picked her fork and started picking her salad gingerly,She didn't want Lucy to know about it,She couldn't confide in her yet,she didn't trust her that much jare.But how could Jacob do this to her.
Re: My Husband......... by Flakkydagirl: 1:11pm On Sep 01, 2014

Jacob was enjoying Kat's prescence.

'Jay,you've been boring yourself with work,i see' Kat said sipping her white wine.

'You see nothing at all,am enjoying my life'

'I pity the poor girl you're dating'

'I don't like that Katherine'

'Stop calling me Katherine,i prefer Kat' she mused.

'Why?' he asked.

'I like it that way,the way you say it makes my stomach turn.' Kat smiled warmly into his eyes.

'kat,i need to go now' He said quietly.

'Jay,can we do this again?' Katherine asked

'Kate,we can't and you know it' he tried not to sound hard on her.

'Jay,a lunch or another dinner will not hurt your work,stop avoiding me Mister!'

'I'll let you know when i can then'
he said standing up.

'Oh thank you Jay darling'.She smiled happily.
He knew he shouldn't have agreed so sheepishly,seeing her again could be trouble,or fun,something said oddly in his mind. 
Lucy tried to cheer her up,
'Tell me about that your bobo jo'

'My bobo?' it sounded strange to her.Jacob could not be her bobo,yet,treat her this way.

'I mean Jay,that guy that keeps every lady on their feet whenever he talks' Lucy supplied,raising her glass to drink.

'C'mon he's fine'

'Just fine? Whats rocking between you two,the bobo likes you now,its very obvious' Janet eyed her.

'Lucy,abeg mind your business for here o' 

'And you Jane happen to be my business'

'Your head is hot from drinking,i guess' 

'Okay,finish your meal,and lets catch a movie'

'Catch what?No,am not seeing any movie,am going home to rest' she countered.

'Last i remembered,i wasn't seeking your opinion,its an order,so finish your drink ma'am Jane' she pushed her plates. 'Besides you've done nothing to make you tired,lazy woman' she laughed loudly,causing eyes to look their way.

'You are a trouble bag and you know it'.

'Sha,do fast jare' Lucy said.

'Wait o,you have to change this your outfit to something simpler o,or doyou have new motives for this movie thing again. 

'Maybe,i do have motives,na you know,my feet is hurting me jare.'

'I didn't ask you to wear that o,you can see am comfortable in mine' Janet laughed at her and finished her drink too.

Lucy signalled to the waiter who brought their bill,telling him to keep the change.Naija babe for real.

Janet walked behind Lucy,she searched for Jacob with her eyes,but he had gone,she was sure he hadn't seen her.

So much for meeting with some foreign clients,the lady he just had lunch with was more than that,she thought quietly,Lucy drove and she sat beside her like a dummy,listening to her with her body,while her soul pondered about Jacob Smith.She knew what she was going to do.
Jacob Smith drove home in his Bentley Rapier 2012,playing a cool music and humming quietly,the car had been a dream toy for him,but now having a Rolls Royce was on his mind,he was only taking his time.

He knew what was expected of him as the number three buisness man in Nigeria,a tycoon like him had to be careful of what to wear,places to eat and ladies to be seen with,and he was trying his best to remain good.

Lunch with Katherine was cool,and he enjoyed his meal,but Katherine could be dangerous,a lady with class,money,power and influence and who knows how to make use of them is no plaything.

His mother had been dissappointed with the break of the relationship,it wasn't so easy for him too,but he had to move on,agreeing to have lunch or dinner with her again sounded silly to him,but he was a man of his words.

He arrived home late in the afternoon,made some calls,and retired to his private library,he called Jane's mobile,the phone rang but it was not picked,he dialled their home telephone,the same thing,he settled on the chair making himself comfortable and selected some books to read.
He had been consumed with it,as reading was a passion for him,the brass knocker sounded,he looked up from his book,it was Ruth.
'What do you want' he asked flipping the book to another page.

'Dinner is ready sir' 

'I'll eat here,you can bring my food'

'Your food is on the table sir,madam and Aunty Jackie are waiting for you', she replied

'Did you hear me at all' Jacob said,closing the book.

'Yes sir,i heard you'

'Then leave'.

Ruth left the library,Jacobs eye went to the clock hung on the wall,it was thirty minutes past seven,he was so engrossed in the book,that he didn't notice the time.

Leaning on the chair,he stretched his leg out,Jackie came in.

'Hello kid brother' She drawled

'Hello Jackie'

'I am fine and how was your day' she asked,looking all over him.

'Cool as usual' 

'Dinner is ready and we're waiting for you' Jackie said

'I am having mine here'

'Here? Why?'

'I just want to be alone' 

'Are sure you are alright?' she asked again.

'Eagle eyes am fine,i just want to eat here,by the way i like your hairstyle,its new and it looks good on you' Jacob said,touching her face.

Jackie kissed his cheeks, 'Thanks brother,i'm glad you like it'.

Ruth came in bringing Jacob's food on a big tray,Jacob opened each covered bowl,assessing its content, 
'Whats in the jug?'

'Orange juice sir' 

'Freshly made?'

'Yes sir'

'Its okay,you can leave,bring Jackie's food here' he said,asking her with his eyes.
She nodded.
'Mummy is not going to like that' she said,drawing out a chair to sit by him.

'She doesn't have to like everything okay?' 

'Jacob you are taking this far,and i do not want any trouble between you too.You know daddy would not like it too' she said,setting her tray on the table.

Jacob ate with Jackie chatting all through.

'I guess you have a date tomorrow' he asked.

'Yes,i have a date with Danjuma' she said picking some plaintain.

'Danjuma? The same Senator Danjuma?'

'No,Danjuma Khalid is the Senator's first child,he is a Barrister' 

'Am sure mummy introduced you to him right?'

'Yes, she did,and there's nothing wrong with that.'

'Why does she like to matchmake self,she'll be so happy you're going out with him unlike me' he picked a napkin and cleaned his mouth.

'I don't know much about this girl of yours,but i hope you're making a good choice dear' 

'Thats what i expected from mummy,but she wouldn't give Jane a chance,thanks for your love' he sipped his juice.

'You're welcome anytime,am through,let me call Rose so that she can clear this place,you don't want rat eating your books.' She pressed a bell by the table,and Ruth came in.

'Clear this table' Jackie said standing up.

'Yes ma'

'Jackie i'll be in my room,i want to use the shower' he said leaving the library. 'Clean this room too,and close the door before leaving.'
Re: My Husband......... by Flakkydagirl: 1:14pm On Sep 01, 2014

Janet sprawled on her bed,covering herself with her baby pink duvet,she skipped dinner because she had two popcorn refill at the cinema,the movie was interesting,but she was not feeling it,her body sat there watching with everybody while her mind kept playing out,the face at the restaurant.

Who was the elegant lady who had Lunch with Jacob this afternoon,everything about the lady screamed c.l.a.s.s.
They looked a perfect couple together,those were the kind of women,Mrs Smith would gladly approve of,little wonder the woman rejected her friendship with her rich son.

Her phone rang all afternoon,but she hadn't picked it,she was lost in thought,she remembered his response this morning,when she called him,an all afternoon meeting with foreign clients?how many of such meeting or was it Lunch had he lied to her about.
She was wasting her time.
Thank heavens,Jacob sighed as he landed on his kingsize bed for two,he had just come back from the kitchen where he went to get iced water when he bumped into his mother,he had expected her to say something,but she just said 'goodnight' instead and walked away,he didn't know what he would have done,if she just started any unnecessary sermon about Jane.

Good!,that reminded him,she had not returned his calls,since afternoon,the blinking dot on his phone alerted him,that must be a missed call from Jane,he guessed,reaching for his phone on the dressing table,he scrolled through his missed calls,he was dissappointed that it was his bossom friend Durojaiye.

Just as he was about returning the call,another call came through,it was Durojaiye again,he picked it at a glance.
'Hello Jaiye' he said into the mouthpiece.
'Hello Jacob,did you get the mail,i sent earlier' came Jaiye's voice from the other hand.
'Yes,i did,but i have not gone through it' he had seen the mail,but had left it hoping to do that tomorrow.
'Do go through it tomorrow,so that you can get back to me,i have to work on it on Monday, it means a lot to J&J.'
'Okay,thats fine with me'. Jacob answered.
'Now,thats that,whats boiling tonite baba olowo' Jaiye said
It never cease to amaze Jacob about Jaiye's flexible nature,one minute,he is frank and the next he is laughing like a baby.
'Boiling? for where?'
'Make we enter club now,saturday night things o' Jaiye said again.
'Forget me for that one,am on my bed already'
'Okay,now,me and Femi them don dey go,if you change your mind,na FIJB we dey'
'Goodnite boss' Jacob said laughing,
'Na you be boss o,sleep well'

Jacob dialled Janes' number again,it was switched,he didn't want to get worried over nothing,he hoped all was well with her and her family.

He reached for the bedside lamp and switched it off.
It was unusual for Janet to miss her dinner,Mrs Odenuga,Janes mother thought.Jane had personally wrote the food table,and saturday night usually promised yam or potatoe porridge with vegetable,which happens to be one of her favorite,she had gone to her room to check and saw that she was neatly tucked in bed.

Sunday service to Mrs Odenuga was not something you should miss,she would scold her daughters insisting they all go to church,Janet doesn't argue much but Hannah her young daughter will give you 1001 reasons not to go to church,Biola was Mrs Odenuga's maiden name,only Hannah and her late husband addressed her as Bibi,Janet preferred calling her Mummy.

Biola had just dressed up for service she wore a blue dry lace,iro and buba with matching headgear,shoe and purse,she knocked on Janet's door,but there was no response,she pushed the door gently and it opened,there lay Jane sleeping soundly on her bed,Janet loved pink and so adorned her room with everything pink,her bedspread,the walls,the curtain,almost everything,the room looked feminine,Biola felt her head with the back of her palm,but her temperature was okay,she left a note for her and went to church asking Rose to keep an eye on her.

It was Mid-day when Jane woke up,the sun shone brightly from the partition on her curtain,she rolled on her side,she finally sat up,she picked up her Bible and prayed,that was something she hadn't done in weeks,she was relaxed now,if God truly answers prayers,it seems hers was answered already,she could feel it deep down in her.

Jane took her bath,She saw the note her mother left her,it was past 12 already,she couldn't make it to church again,she asked Rose to make her a glass of warm milk.

She remembered switching off her phone last night,she picked it from her dressing table and put it on,she carefully pushed all thought of Jacob to the back of her mind,she didn't want to wallow in sobs this morning.
She wanted to call Hannah last night,she had forgotten,she was about placing her phone down when a call came through,without bothering to check the Id,she knew it was Jacob by the special ring tone,she selected for him.
She let it ring twice before picking it.
'Hello Jane' came Jacob's voice through the phone.
'Hi' She replied,sitting by the bed.
'Am in front of your gate,are you home? can i come in?' he asked 
'Hey you ,am home,but you can't come in,you liar,i caught you yesterday' she wanted to scream into the phone,but she calm down and said.
'Am home,you can come in'.
She dropped her phone on the bed,she rushed to her dressing table,she powdered her face,put a brush in her hair,she was about to dab her pink lipstick on,when she thought,why am i even making up my face for him? Am i trying to look beautiful for him? Am i trying to compete with the other lady? Oh! No,she dropped the lipstick.

She got the door in time before he knocked,she opened it wider for him to come in,rather than come in,he stood there staring at her.What? don't i look good? She thought.
Jacob stood,he couldn't help but stare,Jane looked very beautiful,her face,her lips-he didn't want to think about them,her tall figure,something jacked inside of him,butterflies? Her bosom,hmmm,narrow waist,her hips in those loose jean,he was still staring when Jane coughed,waving her hands in his face.
'Are you okay?' she didn't like the alarm note in her voice.
'Sorry,am fine' he walked in.
'Please sit down' she said when she noticed he was still standing.
'How are you dear' he said sitting by her.
'I am fine' she answered curtly.
'What happened to you? Why didn't you pick your call' Jacob asked concerned.
'Nothing,i was busy'
'Yes,very busy'
'Doing what?'
'Thats my personal business' she replied
'You sound angry Jane' he moved closer to her.
She wanted to lie,but she couldn't contain it anymore, 'Jacob you're cheating on me' She almost screamed.
Jacob was taken aback,that was the last thing he was expecting.he adjusted his frame on the couch.
'That can't be true' he said trying to hold her hands.
'But i saw you at Foodco! You lied to me about a meeting,i saw the lady' she wanted to cry,this emotions of her was irritating.
Jacob started sweating,his brows rose,he had to say something,he wanted to lie but decided against it.
'Yes,you're right,i was there with a friend,the meeting i had was cancelled' he said trying to hold her gaze.
'How am i supposed to believe that? How?' she started crying.
'please don't cry' he held her hands and wiped the tears streaming down on her face.'Just believe me,please' 
'Its okay,i trust you,i was just worried that you had probably settled for a rich lady,like your mother proposed'she sobbed.
'No dear,i wouldn't do that,i truly love you' he spoke quietly.
'I love you too dear' she said holding him tight.
'Am sorry for not trusting you at first'
'Its nothing dear,stop crying'
'Its nothing dear,stop crying' Jacob embraced her,placing her head on his shoulders,he loved the feeling going through his body.

He kissed her,her lips were soft and irresistibly sweet,he brushed his mouth against them once,twice,then pressed against them more insistently,he had been wondering how to get her into bed.Janet didn't appear to know how to respond to the unexpected kiss,her lips were unmoving,her eyes wide,Jacob moved his tongue inside the corner of her mouth and she made a strangled little sound that had come from somewhere deep within her,then she leaned closely against him.Goog God,Jane had no idea how incredibly he wanted her,he slid his hands to rest at the back of her neck,he deepened the kiss,he was beginning to explore her soft bosom when the brass knocker sounded...Gbammmmmm

They broke the kiss,Rose came in carrying a basket of whatever,the room was awkwardly silent.Janet was yet to recover from the kiss.
Jacob spoke first, 'Hello Rose' that didn't sound like it came from his mouth.
'Good afternoon Uncle Jacob' she curtsied and continued,'Aunty Janet,i didn't know you're here o,did you see the milk?
'Yes,i did thank you'. She had regained her voiced.
'I'll be in the kitchen if you need anything ma.'
'Its okay' Janet said.

She hoped Rose didn't catch the edge in her voice,she adjusted her blouse,thank God Rose came in when she did,maybe Jacob would have done something else,like take her in here,so much for keeping herself.
She knew Jacob was a man of intergrity,he would never take her in her home on the couch for that matter,what if he did? God forbid that,she thought.Jacob's phone rang,he excused himself and took the call.
'Janet,i hope you're fine now' he said for lack of what to say.
'Am okay,thanks'
'And i want you to put your trust in me,i'ld never let you down,no matter what,my dear' he said.
'I know,i'ld never doubt you again' 
'I love you darling'
'I love you too'
'I have to go now,Jaiye and the other guys are waiting for me' he stood up.
'My regards to them'
'Tell mummy i'll call her soon' 
'Its alright then'
she saw him off to the gate,she watched him enter his car and drove off.

She returned to her room,she picked her phone and called Hannah,she was on the phone for thirty minutes,Hannah was a talkative unlike her,She had promised to talk to her again before the end of the day,that was how she was able to end the call.she began to arrange her wardrobe,brought out her box,she hadn't packed anything and camp was a few days away,she brought out a pen and Jotter to make a list of things she needed.she was so engrossed in what she was writing,the sound of the door bell jolted her.she knew Rose would get the door.
'Aunty Janet,someone is here to see you o' Rose shouted from the sitting room.That girl is too local,Janet thought,she had expected her mother to be back from church now,it was some minutes to two.
'Who is the person' she answered back walking to the sitting room.
'I don't know o' Rose said and left.
Janet moved closer to the door,there was a fat man standing by the door.
Re: My Husband......... by Flakkydagirl: 1:17pm On Sep 01, 2014
Braids!,thats one hair,she couldn't do without,she packed it to the back using a fancy rubber,the sun was getting too much today,having sat for close to 6 hours,she had left the lecture hall tired and famished,she waved at people who bothered to say hi to her,no time for idle chats today,she had an important date by 5 in the evening.She walked to her hostel,which was just about 15 minutes walk from her department. 

Hannah Odenuga Olabimpe was a charmer,she was the kind of lady men noticed because of her fair skin,she had bright eyes,other ladies aspired to emulate her.

It was impossible to remain detached and impersonal once you saw her,and had been graced by her eloquent prescence.

She looked far matured for her age,her beauty could light up a room,so fair and beautiful,guys hussled to have her attention,at 20 she was beginning to look like a beauty queen,Basketmouth would not mind having her as a personal assistant,because of her jovial nature.Her friends often call her 'Mammy' which was short form for Mammywater behind her. 

She entered her room quietly,not wanting any uninvited guest to bother her,it was just some minutes past three,she shared the room with three other ladies,Rukayat,Cynthia and the book worm amidst them Shade.

Her roomies had all gone to thier various department,Hannah was a Pol science student 200L,she rummaged the room for food,she made boiled noodles with egg,and ate,she took her bath,and took her time dressing up.

Hannah had always had a crush on Rotimi Williams right from her first year,he was a year ahead her but in the same dept.He was tall and handsome,he was btw 22-24 years,he was the social director for their department.He was always seen with different beautiful ladies everything.

She had been very happy,when he asked her out 5wks ago,she laughed and dance that day,her room mates even laughed at her,they probably envy her,she thought.She had a loud mouth and was not afraid to speak her mind,but asking a guy out was the last thing,she'll ever do in her life.

Luckily for her,Rotimi Williams asked her out,she had been forming for him for close to 4weeks,ladies things you know,she had finally agreed to see him this afternoon at NEoN park,she relaxed on the bed and set her alarm for 4:45,to enable her do some last minute make up.

The fat man standing by the door,looked up.
'Good afternoon Ma'am.' he said politely.
'Good Afternoon sir,what can i do for you' Janet asked.
'Excuse me please,are you Miss Jane' the man asked putting a smile on his face.He looked better,he was a middle aged man.
'Yes,anything the matter' 
'Sorry to disturb you,i have some delivery for you' he walked outside the gate.
Janet wondered,what the man wanted to delivery,she hadn't made any purchases to be delivered at her doorstep.

The man soon returned with a big object wrapped nicely,'This is for you ma,you're to sign here' he brought out a book and a pen and she appended her signature.
'Thanks' the man turned to leave.
Janet also mumbled her own 'thank you'.

She allowed the man to drive away before carrying the wrapped whatever into her room.she was about opening it,when she heard someone entering the sitting room.
'Oh my God' she said to herself,she met her mother about coming to her room.
'Janet,you're up' Biola said leading her to the sitting room,it was more of a statement than a question.
'Yes Mum,welcome,how was service today' she asked without interest.
'It was great,God be praised.' she continued 'What happened to you last night,you missed one of your favorite meal,and you woke up late today' Biola asked concerned.

'Nothing! Just tired,thats all', she didn't want to go into any story telling.

'Are you sure about that', Biola asked again.

'Yes mum,am sure' she said giving her mother a quick smile so as to reassure her.

'Thats my daughter,don't hesitate to talk to me,if you need anything,okay.' she hugged her

'Let me change my clothes,i want to eat.' she carried her purse and her bible and left for her room.

Janet went to the kitchen,Rose was not there,she would probably be in her room.she knocked before going in.
'Rose,are you there' she called.

'Yes Aunty,am here'.

'Please set the table,Mummy is back'.

She quickly returned to her room to check 'her delivery', she laughed in her mind.she entered her room,the wrapped item was still there,where she placed it.
She sat down by her dressing table,and started unwrapping it.
Brrrrrrr...brrrrrrrr,her phone!,who is calling again,ah!
North Lecture hall,with a 500capacity,was full to the brim,the students were shouting ,some were talking loud,others arguing,they were waiting for their lecturer to come in.The heat was so unbearable,most people were sweating.

'Up Nepa' someone shouted from the back,everybody looked up,alas,it was a false cry,shouts of abuse rented the air.Two minutes later,the fan started rolling,everybody shouted again.
'Una be mad men o' another voice shouted,there was an uproar from the students.

A stout young man of about 22 years stood in the front of the hall,trying to get everybody's attention,he put the mega phone to his mouth and spoke at the top of his voice.
'Hello everybody,Mr Adeleye is busy at the moment,so he would not be coming' another uproar rented the air. 'But....' everyone kept quiet again 'Prof. Dehinde is coming in 5minutes time',he walked away to his seat.

Hannah who was sitting with her friends,Bukola and Molade, quickly adjusted her seat,putting her note pad on her desk.Prof. Dehincome as he was fondly called among students,was a disciplinarian in all ramifications.
'Tahrr! Bukola sit well,Dehincome will soon be here o' Hannah wispered.
'I can't kill my self jare,what is it self ah' Bukola retorted eyeing her.
'I hope this your foolish mouth will not put you in trouble sha' Hannah,eyed her too.
'Look who is coming?' Molade pinched Hannah.
'Who is it jare' Hannah turned towards Molz 
'Its Akinlolu,your upcoming borfriend' Molz said laughing.
'You'ld better stop that,i don't like it' her brow furrowed in anger.
'Chill abeg,he's coming to our table' Bukola said.

Akin walked to their table,he looked cool in his well ironed shirt tuck in a black trouser,he banged on their table,they all turned towards him feigning ignorance of his prescence.
'Hello Ladies' he smiled.
'Hi Akin' they sang in a chorus.
'Hi Hanny,you look good' he smiled at her.
'Thanks' Hannah replied looking away.

He soon walked away from their table, 'This guys has guts! Awwwh' Hannah spat.
'Wetin now,se na crime to admire you,the guy fine today o,the guy likes you like ...Kilode and you are forming stubborn girl' Molz said.
'Molz,no worry,i can order for transfer of admiration o' Hannah replied.The three of them burst into laughter.

Just then prof. Dehinde came in,carrying a notepad and walking like a cow,he wobbled to the front of the class,by now everyone was quiet.He dropped his note pad and adjusted his old glasses,pushing it up his nose.

'Good day class' he said,everybody shouted. 'We can't hear you sir'
'Rep?' he called. The stout man scurried to the front again.
'Get me the Megaphone' the class rep. returned in a jiffy,handing him the phone,he hurried back to his seat.

'Good day class' he repeated.
'I will not spend more than thirty minutes here,today,we're treating Nigerian Government and Politics,under it......You,You,stand up.he pointed his hand towards a lady.

'Me?' Hannah said looking back.
'Yes,Yes,the one looking back' he said.
'Sir? Me?' 
'The one wearing that pink bra' the class burst into laughter,'Sorry class,the one in the pink blouse'
that was Hannah.

Hannah stood as if she had just wet the bed,
'Yes you,pls come forward'
Hannah walked to the front,she stood beside him like one who had just been convicted of murder.
'Can you tell the class,what you were thinking about,you look lost' he handed her the Mega phone.
'Sir,i was thinking about Rotimi Williams' she answered,everybody shouted.
'Is that not the social director of this dept!'
'Yes,he is,he asked me out five weeks ago,and we have a date today by 5pm at NEoN park' the class shouted again.
'A date? is that why you were lost in thought?'

Hannah was about answering him again,when she heard some people murmuring around her,she listened,those murmuring had started laughing,she looked around but found no one,something closed her eyes and everywhere was dark,she tried to open her eyes again,this time it opened,she looked around her,she was in her room in the hostel.....she saw her friends talking to each other,she had been dreaming all day.
Re: My Husband......... by Flakkydagirl: 1:20pm On Sep 01, 2014
Whoever said washing was fun? She turned to look at the pile of clothes by her side,she still had a long way to go,she had been washing all day,eating was a luxury she couldn't afford,when she still had so much washing to do.there were about 4 buckets and two washing basin in front of her,she sat on a small stool bending down to wash,if the clothes she was washing was hers,it would have been better,they belonged to her siblings,who were old enough to sit and wash by themselves.

It was Saturday and everyone had gone out save her,she had been up since dawn,doing one house chore or the other.She had been washing for two hours and still counting,she stood up for a split seconds to scratch her back on the wall,knowing that trouble loomed for her should she not be through by the stipulated time.She rinsed the ones she had washed,taking a seconds she look at her hands,they looked old and rough just at twenty two.

She hurried up with the spreading of the ones she just rinsed.she still had the dirty stack of plates to wash,she hadn't prepared Lunch and a mud splattered car to wash in the garage,the more she thought about her predicament,the more tired she grew.Even slaves were treated better than she was in her own fathers house.

Such was life for Adetoun Adepoju Omolewa,the first daughter of the Adepojus.She was still basking in the sorrow of her life when she heard her name.
'Toun Toun Touuuuuuun' a strong female voice shouted from somewhere inside the house.

Yekpa,wahala de o,Adetoun thought, 'Ma,am coming' she answered,shouting at the top of her voice.

The caller who seemed to be impatient shouted again.
'Toun buruku yen da.' the voice drew nearer to her.

Adetoun quickly left the bathroom,where she was washing,she scurried to the sitting room,practically running,her heart was beating loud and hard.she stood before her caller.

'Toun,on ka mi lohun ni,ah ah,you were counting my voice abi!' she walked closer to Toun,who was standing at a distance.

'Rara ma,i wasn't........' she could not finish that statement,she felt something hard land across her face,kpaaaaa....,it was a hot slap.
Before she could register that in her head,two sharp slaps landed on her right cheek again,her vision blurred,her head vibrated,and she slumped to the ground.


Jane glanced at her phone,to check the caller Id,it was Lucy,that lousy girl,let her not come over she prayed in her mind,she picked her call.
'Jane Jane Jane' Lucy sang on the phone,her voice was cool,she sure had a good voice.
'Hi Lucy' she said.
'Hey Jane,whats up today?' she asked,she was probably about to propose another outing,Janet guessed,that was the something she was good at.
'Am good o,and you' she asked.
'Bored-is the word,lets go out'
just as Janet had thought,she had to find a way to decline without being rude.
'I just came back fron church'She lied without much thought.'And i have a whole lot of things to do.' she landed.
Lucy made a low dissappointed sound from her end of the phone.
'You're just so boring jare,awwwh!,and i was counting on you o' She said.
'Sorry to dissappoint you,i have to go now' 
'Alright,talk to ya later'
'Okay' Lucy had pressed the red button,she heard the call drop,she put down her phone.

She heaved a sigh of relieve,glad that Lucy had not asked to come over to her own house.She returned her attention to 'her delivery' as she termed it.she locked her door,she tore the wrapping carefully to reveal a bunch of flower,her favorite colour,it was pink,with blue patches,it looked so beautiful in its glass vase,and quite expensive too,she loved the scent that emanated as she placed it close to her nostrils,hmmmmm hmmmmm,she did that again,she looked for a vantage position to place it her room,it looked so beautiful against the pink wall in her room.she caught sight of something else in the wrapper,a small box,it was a box of her favorite chocolate,BaWwela.she brought it out,as she opened it,something fell down from the cover,it was a small decorated card,on it was written.
WiTh LoVe fRoM JaY

it was written boldly,she placed the card on her chest,and something felt warm inside of her.To love and be loved in return was really a beautiful thing.

At that moment,Jacob's call came in.
'Hello love' his voice sounded husky,Jane loved that.
'Hi dear' she said happily.
'Did you get my message'
'Yes i did,it was so beautiful,you got my favorite colour too' she smiled,wishing Jacob could see her face now.
'And the BawweLa?' he asked.
'Yes,thnks for the chocs too,have started packing for camp dear' she said giggling.
'Good,that reminds me,i just made some arrangement for you about that,you will be...'
she didn't wait for him to complete the statement.
'I'll be doing what?' Jane asked perplexed.
The woman watched as Adetoun slumped to the ground,she called her younger son Yemi,to get some water.
'Yemi dear' she called softly,she didn't even act like someone was in danger.

Yemi,a young boy of 12 came in,walking blindly as his eyes were glued to his blackberry phone.
'Mum,you called up' he said without looking up.

'Yemi' she shouted,'give me some attention.'

it was then he saw the slumped figure of her sister.
'Mum,what happened to her' he asked nonchallantly.

'Don't mind the ,i slapped her and she slumped to the ground,pretending to have fainted',she eyed the figure on the floor.'just get me some water jare'.

Yemi soon came back with a bowl of water.
'Mum,you won't believe that there are stacks of dirty plates in the kitchen,the whole place stinks,i had to cover my nose'.

His mother got the bowl from him and sprinkled some water on Toun,who stirred on the floor.She pulled her up and landed another heavy slap on her cheek.
'You,,why did you pretend to have fainted just now' she hissed at Toun.

Toun was stung by the pain from the slap coupled with her mothers question,how could she be so heartless.
'I wasn't pretending ma' she tried to explain.

'So,who is lieing between us,by the time i begin to punish you,neighbours will start pouring in,you haven't cleaned the kitchen,the dirty plates are still there,you have not even washed your father's car,what have you been doing all day?' she questioned furiously.'How can i have a grown up girl like you in the house and yet expect me to do the chores alone.'

Toun knew better than to answer any of those questions,the woman who was screaming at her was her own mother,she stood before her with her head bowed.

'Have you gone deaf?' she screamed again.Toun didn't budge.
As her mother made to hit her face again,she stepped back.
The woman almost fell down,a laughter almost escaped from her throat even in her present circumstances,she quickly controlled herself and tried to help her up.

Yemi who sat on the chair,phone in hand,watched the whole drama without interest,it was something the house was used to.

As Adetoun tried to help her,she shouted, 'If you come near me,i'll strangle you' she stood up by herself and looked towards Yemi.
'Yemi,get me my cane.' she faced Toun and smirked her lips.

'Mum,you are disturbing me o' Yemi walked reluctantly to get the cane.He came back with a pankere,he handed it to his mother and resumed to his former position.

Toun stood her ground,she didn't flinch,she only pitied her body and the pain she'll feel later at night.

Her mother flogged her to satisfaction,before ordering her to finish her chores,Adetoun returned to the kitchen,she washed all the plates and cleaned the floor,she headed to the garage to wash the car and later returned to the bathroom,it was quarter to six and she hadn't put a food in her stomach.

She went to the kitchen,to check what was on the list for dinner,thank heavens,it was boiled yam with fish stew,she prepared it fast,she worked like a computer.

By 7:30 pm,food was ready,she placed everything on the dinning table,and resumed to the bathroom.She finished washing and went to her room to cry,she hadn't taken her bath,her body writhed in pain,she could still feel the lashing of the pankere on her rough skin,tears sprang to her eyes,she let them pour like the morning rain,such was life for Adetoun.

Adetoun lived with her parents,Mr&Mrs Adepoju,her father Olakunle Adepoju was a contractor,while her mother Biyisi Adepoju was a Nurse,they were four children in all,she was the first daughter,the second was a boy,Adekunle Adepoju,the third was a girl,Adeola Adepoju and their last child was Olayemi Adepoju.

Adetoun lived and worked like a slave in her parents house,she never did anything right,she was always at the receiving end.she had so many sleepless,her stomach had grown so used to hunger.

As she lay in bed,she thought about her miserable life,the other family members were at the table eating,she prayed that her mother would remain something for her,even if it was a piece of yam without stew.

She lay on the bed staring at the ceiling,her body felt heavy,she had no briuse on her body because she let the bruise remain in her soul,that was where the pain came for,she was still thinking about all this,when her mother called her,No,Biyisi didn't call,she screamed her name.
'Touuuuuuun!!!' Biyisi shouted.
Adetoun almost fell off the body in her hurry to get down hitting her leg on the wall.

What have i done this time?
Did i over salt the yam?
Maybe the stew was not properly cooked.
Hannah looked around her,Rukayat and Cynthia sat on their own bed,talking loud,they were probably gossiping,she guessed.

The room was spacious enough for four girls,she was trying to remember something,she wondered why she was wearing her shoes on the bed,then it came to her in a flash...Rotimi Williams..it sank in her head,they had a date for pete's sake,and she was lying on her,she looked at the time 7:25 pm....
'Oh my God!' she exclaimed.
The other ladies turned to look at her,they didn't know she was up.
'Hanny you're awake?' Rukky asked.

'No,am not,its my twin sis that is talking.' she lashed at her,and made a grab for her phone.

Rukayat and Cynthia looked at each other and burst into laughter.

Hannah was not moved by their display of foolishness,she had 13missed calls, 11 from Rotimi and 2 from Jacob,her sister's boyfriend.

'Good gracious! How could i have slept off.' she wondered.

Cynthia tried to be more understanding,
'Babe,what happened' she asked.

'You won't believe,i slept off on Rotimi' she said quietly.

'You guys were supposed to have a date today?' 

'Yes,by 5pm,and its already past seven,what do i do? She sounded confused.

'Can i speak?' Rukayat asked.

'Speak,only if you have something sensible to say' she said pulling off her black,baby mouse shoe.

'I think you're taking this thing far' she said

'How?' cynthia asked.

'Because you just missed a date is no reason for you to be angry' Rukky said 'Moreover.....'

Hanny cut her short. 'Moreover what? I told you to keep shut,you cow' she retorted angrily.

'Look,who is talking,you're just swooning over this guy,its not like you're the first lady he asked out,so kini big deal?make i hear word jare.' Rukky was beginning to get angry too.

'You guys should stop this rubbish abegi' Cynthia said trying to make peace.

'Cynthia,pls tell that to this jealous girl o,thank God,he didn't ask you out' Hannah shouted at Rukayat.

'its not even like he asked to marry you,just an ordinary girlfriend o and you're behaving like he proposed to you,dnt tell me you're a desperado' Rukayat hissed like a snake.

Those words hit Hannah like an heavy blow,she stood up and rushed towards Rukayat,if not for Cynthia who had already guessed her move,a wrestling competition would have started and that was the last thing she wanted.

Cynthia stood between them panting, 'Whats this now ah ha,over wetin? A guy for crying out loud,ah una dey fall my hand o' she suceeded in pushing Hannah back to her bed.

Rukayat was still dazed,she wasn't expecting the move,she quickly recovered from her shock.
'Don't think because you are oyinbo and guys are all over you,i'll beat you blue black,Mammywater' she hissed and walked out of the room,before she received the beating of her life.

Cynthia sat by Hannah and begged her to stay calm,it was useless fighting over nothing,and opportunities loomed about for another date.
'Thank you jare,you get brain pass that crayship wey just comot'

'Don't mention,maybe you should just call him and explain,that sounds like something reasonable to do afterall.'

Cynthia left for her bed,Hannah was about to call Rotimi when Shade,their roommate burst in.

Shade must have been coming from the Library,thats her second room,she walked in looking tired with her bag slung on her shoulders.
'Hello anybody who cares to answer' she said,throwing her bag on her bed.
'Welcome sisi Shade' Hannah greeted without lifting her head.

'Welcome bookie' Cynthia said looking for trouble.

'I don't have your time Omo ibo' she said,Shade could be a bookworm but she was a better gossip.'Before i forget o,one fine guy is outside o,he asked to see Hannah,he's outside the hostel beside G3 gardens and he also..... ' 

Hannah didn't allow her to finish the statement before she jumped from her bed, 'That must be Rotimi o' she said,putting on her shoe,she rushed outside.

Shade burst out laughing,'It looks like someone is in love o' she said,opening topic for gossip.

'Me,i don't know o,maybe you should ask her,but be becareful o,she almost beat Rukayat now o,thank God i was here o,

'En enh,tell me more' shade moved to Cynthia's bed 'Gossip mood activated...gbam..' she laughed.

Cynthia adjusted herself and gave Shade a full version of what transpired some minutes ago.
'Eeyah,i don miss big time oworld war 3 for that matter' she pitied herself.

'How you no go miss,when you wan kill yourself for library,they take book swear for you abi.' she said.

'Na you sabi o,exam go soon come,let me read o,na my number one business for this school o' she replied moving back to her bed.

Suddenly,the light came on.
'Up Nepa' both girls shouted at the same time.

'I'll be doing what?' Jane asked perplexed.She didn't want any surprise again concerning this service,not after he had re-arranged the posting making her stay in Lagos.Only God knew who and who he called to pull that through without a sweat.she listened carefully to Jacob as he sighed over the phone.

'Jane dear,calm down' he said 'Does that mean you're yet to forgive me for making you have your service here in Lagos?' there was concern in his voice.

'Not that,its just that i like Abj,buts that gone.' she said 'what were you saying the other time?'

'I just wanted you to spend your weekend in my place,i'll take you shopping and we can talk better too before you leave.' he said without stopping.

'Am sure you're kidding me right?' Janet asked surprise written all over her voice.

'Does it look like that to you' 

'Maybe,it does sounds funny,you know we can do whatever talking we want in my house or anywhere apart from your place.'

'And whats wrong with you coming over to my place? Ever since the first time-which was months ago,you have refused to step your foot here.' Jacob was beginning to get angry.

'How do you expect me to visit the lion's den' she snapped back.

'And who is the Lion?'


'And am asking who the lion is? My mum?'


'Its okay,if you dont want to talk to me.' Jacob said accepting defeat.

'No Jacob,maybe we shouldn't discuss this over the phone.' She said,her voice quaked slightly.

'I'll pick you up by 6pm,bye.'

Janet dropped her phone and heaved a sigh.How could Jacob speak like he wasn't aware of his mothers coldness her.The woman had made it that she didn't approve their relationshio.

And the last thing she needed was someone reminding her of her status,it was not even like they couldn't feed,her mother was back on her feet,working hard and she was sure that with that,they could maintain the family.

They were getting too comfortable in Jacobs hand of luxury,she pinched herself,she hoped that one day,he would not wake up and start asking her to pay back,how would she ever repay him for every of his kindness,to her family,and his love for her.

She was about to relax on the bed,when she heard a loud pierceing scream,it came from somewhere in the house......

Adetoun looked at her mother,expecting her to shout or pamper her cheek with a slap,but neither was done.
'Toun get me a plate from the kitchen' she said without shouting.

Adetoun dissappeared into the kitchen and returned with a breakable plate.
'Here it is ma' she courtsied.

Biyisi pointed to the bowl of yam on the table.
'Help yourself with some.' she said.

Adetoun stood rooted to the ground,maybe her ears have started failing her o,what luxury! Help herself to some yam?
Strange things are happening o,She thought.

'Toun,mo ni ko mu isu,take some yam in there.' Biyisi said calmly.

Adetoun stepped forward,and opened the bowl with shaking hands,she picked four slices of yam and added a little stew to it.
She turned to leave.

'Toun,come and eat here now,everyone is at the table,why would you want to eat alone.' Adekunle,the first son and her immediate brother spoke.

'I am not ready to eat now,I still have some things to do' she answered back.

Adekunle was the only one who supported her no matter what their mother did or accused her of.
He'ld sometimes beat Adeola who was the second daughter of the family ordering her to assist Adetoun with the house chores.

Adeola was a spoilt girl even at 15,she couldn't wash nor cook.But who could blame her,she had been trained like that.Adekunle was only wasting his time.

Adetoun and Adekunle talked a lot,this was something Biyisi didn't approve of.

'Sister,come and eat here.' he said again.

'Toun,you can join us at the table.' Biyisi joined in,something was happening o,she thought.

She sat at the far end of the table,when her phone began to ring,she could hear it from her room.

She didn't want to excuse herself from the table.Her mother looked around 
'Whose phone is ringing' she asked.

'Mine.' Adetoun answered.

'And who is calling you?its almost 8pm' 

'I dnt know yet,let me get it' she made to stand up from the table.

'No,let Adeola get it' Adeola rushed inside to get the phone.

Adetoun knew the caller would be Priye,her boyfriend,whom her mother had ordered her to stop seeing for no reason in particular,she loved Priye and he loved her in return,he had stood by her always.she prayed in her mind that it should be someone else,but she knew better.

Adeola came in,the gleam in her eyes,said it all.
The scream she heard had come from someone in the house,she rushed to the sitting room,
'My leg o ooo ooo......' the voice shouted again.

Biola had rush to Jane's room before hurrying to the sitting room,mother and daughter looked at each other,they both rushed into the kitchen to see Rose on the floor.
'What happened?' Biola asked crouching beside her.

Rose pointed towards the gas cooker,where a frying pan sat with little oil,the oil must have poured on her leg.
Re: My Husband......... by Flakkydagirl: 1:25pm On Sep 01, 2014
'Bibi,i think some oil poured on her leg' Jane explained to her mother who poured some cold water on her leg,she also rubbed shea butter on the leg too and Rose had begin to feel better.

Jacob showed up later in the day,he took her out,she had requested for a quiet place not somewhere loud or noisy and he'd taken her to CubiCle,it was a big restaurant for people who had something in their pocket.

Each table looked like a Cubicle,where it was easy for couple or a group to share some quality time without being disturbed by other customers.

They had a quiet dinner and talked at length.Jacob had been very considerate,he'd made her understand that his mother only wanted the best for both of them and he'ld be happy if she could spend the weekend with him.

Spend the weekend with him! Thats was not something she was ready to do.
She could not bear his mothers biting glares even for a day,talkless of three days at a go!

Janet did her best to convince him about it,after so much persuassion ,they'd finally agreed that he'ld take her shopping during the week and Janet will spend the whole of Saturday in his place.

They finished their dinner over a bottle of wine,before he drove her home.

Janet lay in the bathtub,thinking of Jacob,his smiles,his eyes,how she felt each time,he held her hand,the way he spoke with her about their growing love,how he wanted her so much,that he could catch her a grenade at her request,what had really touched her was when he said he could leave his mother to be with her!

How many men would do that for their woman? she'd advised him against such anyway.

Janet cherished every moment with him like there'll be no other again.She closed her eyes allowing the warm water flow into the depth of her very soul.

She looked forward to a beautiful week ahead and how she'll face ''Mother Lion''this time around. 
Hannah rushed outside the hostel,Rotimi had probably come here,because she wasn't picking his calls.she had tried his phone now,it was switched off.

The cool night breeze felt cold against her skin,she wished she had put on a thick clothe,she saw people standing in two,threes discussing whatever,that was how people usually fill th outside of the hostel and garden beside it every night,that was none of her business sha,she walked along G3 gardens but couldn't find him,she was about to turn into the garden,when two strong hands rested on her shoulders,she suddenly freezed,she turned to face the owner of the hand,only to see a silly Akinlolu grinning at her.

She was mad with rage and tried to control herself,as she gently removed his hands from her shoulders.Taking a step back she folded her hands under her bosom.
'Good evening,Hanny' he smiled at her.

'Akin,i don't see anything good about this evening' she said,a frown was evident on her face.

'I asked your roommate to call you,i would have called but i had a flat battery' he explained.

So,it was this silly Akin that was calling her,when she had rushed out,thinking it was Rotimi,she hissed in her mind.

'Akin,i am in no mood for any of your foolish talks,i have to go' she walked into the garden without a backward glance at the guy she left behind.

She walked to the far end of the garden,it was a bit dark here,she saw figures standing around in two,some stood,some sat holding hands.

Janet sat on one of the cemented chairs,allowing herself to enjoy the breeze,she stretched her leg and relaxed her body.

She was thinking about Rotimi,when she heard someone moan,she listened carefully,and heard the moan again,whatever! She thought,when she began hearing voices,the couple were a few inches away from her,she had to strain her eyes to see their faces.

She couldn't make out their face,it was dark,soon,they began to talk,she would recognize that voice anywhere,anytime in this world.she listened again,ofcourse she hadn't made a mistake,it was the same person,she saw them smooching,the voice of the lady sounded familiar too.They didn't even notice her prescence,as the pair were touching and caressing in the dark garden.

Blood rushed to her face,as she sat propped on the chair,she was lost,she thought about something to do,she had two options.
1.She was to stand up,walk up to those ,and have them bursted.
2.Stand up,and a take a walk away carefully without being noticed.

She knew the better idea of the two,Her mind was made up as she stood up and...............
Re: My Husband......... by Flakkydagirl: 1:26pm On Sep 01, 2014
Monday came and went without much fuss,tuesday,wednesday,and finally thursday.Janet had woken up to a warm morning.she lingered in bed till around 8 in the morning,her mother came in to bid her bye,she was off to work.

The morning sun did her good,she stood by her window enjoying,the feel of sunshine on her face,she remembered Jacob telling her that she could compete with the likes of Isabellezza di San Gregorio of Rome,with her beautiful and flawless skin,she smiled deep down in her heart,she sank on the bed again.

Ruffling the duvet with her feet,she wished Jacob was there with her,right in bed with her,she didn't want to think of likely things that could happen,if he was truly here.She longed for the day,he would finally take away her innocence and make her a woman!

It was one thing to look beautiful,its another to know you're beautiful and loved.Walking with an handsome man and a popular figure like Jacob Smith was a privilege anytime,anywhere,Jacob was never short of smile for everyone they met.

Jacob was out of the country on an urgent call he received Monday morning,he had flown to New York and had just returned last night,he had informed her that,they'ld go shopping today,she was so excited about it.

Something she loved about her 4inches Pear heels,was that it allowed her to walk gracefully,her blue chiffon blouse looked beautiful against her skin,what made her stomach yummy was when Jacob said,
'I love your white pant on that heels' 
she had blushed,they'ld both enjoyed shopping this afternoon at MaSuShis Supermart.

Jacob had looked a bit tired but his black suit did him good,he'd bought her so many expensive things,she'd been awed when he bought her a N300,000 diamond ear studs,they looked so small yet shiny and beautiful.she couldn't thank him enough.

He'ld taken her for lunch to crown it up,he kept stealing kisses from her once there was a little opportunity,Jane could not contain her joy.He drove her home and before he allowed her to get down from the car,he'ld kissed her senseless making her ask for more,she enjoyed the feel of his lips on hers and lingered in his warm embrace,being in love was so much more than she knew.

Jacob reminded her every minute,of how much he loved her.they had even argued about who loved the other more,Jacob won and demanded that His price was a kiss,Janet gave in without a word since she was enjoying his touches.

Before he left,he reminded her of Saturday,pleading with her to come to his place,she had agreed with much confidence showing on her face.

Jacob returned to work,saying he had much work at the office.

Janet spread all that he bought her on the bed,she marvelled at how much he'd spent on a 2hrs shopping,when all she could give in return was kisses and show of love.

She wondered if he had any other girlfriend save her,she had not completely forgotten about the creamy skin,rich lady at the restaurant,she quickly banished such thought from her mind.

She remembered the flirting gaze of the pretty attendant at the supermart and how Jacob had returned it with a sweet innocent smile.She was the envy of so many ladies.

She made a vow in her mind never to do anything to provoke him or make him distrust her,she packed the clothes,shoes,accesories and other things into its pack.

If always and forever truly exist,that was what she wished for with Jacob,a voice in her head told her not to forget about his mother,she scolded the voice saying nothing was impossible for God.

But why God! She laughed,A God she hardly prayed to,thanked? Praised?
Awwh! Life was a handful,she thought.

She looked forward to her Aunt's visit the next dae and spending a whole day in the Smiths! That was something she didn't want to think about for now.

It was late in the evening and she settled on the couch to watch a new movie her mother brought last night.She asked Rose to join her after asking about her leg.

It was a comic movie,a love story like that of hers and Jacob,it had a happy ending,and she laughed till tears found their way down her face,she hoped her relationship with Jacob would have a happy ending too,she wished,she wished,she wished..........
