Ini sat in the meeting room discussing with two other Videx's staffs about the negotiation while they waited for their visitors. In less than two minutes, their visitors arrival was announced.
Kelvin Okafor walked into the meeting room with two other representatives and were welcomed by their hosts.
"I'm Kelvin Okafor, manager of public relations, Devi International. These are my colleagues, Sandra Benjamin and Peter Uzokwe" He introduced
"I'm Miss Ini Williams and here with me is Mr Paul Adejumo and Mr Stephen Kayode. You can have your seats, let's begin immediately
"Good morning Miss Amarachi" Dennis greeted as he sat in one of the chairs in her office.
"Good morning sir" She replied standing up " what brings you to my office this morning?"
"Nothing. Come on, sit down. I just came to commend you for your performance yesterday. You did brilliantly well"
"Thank you sir" she said smiling.
"And i also want to ask if you'll do me the honour of taking you for lunch today"
"Ermm... Sir, I do always take lunch with my friend"
"What about dinner tonight?"
"Um" She sighed "Let's make it this weekend sir"
"Oh! That would be great then, thank you so much" He said happily and got up to leave " and one more thing. Please, can you cut off the sir and call me Dennis when we are alone"
"It's okay sir... Ermm, it's okay Dennis."
Kelvin was seated quitely reading the Tuesday's edition of Guardian Newspaper when he heard a voice asking of him outside. He walked out to find one of his stylists conversing with Bola
"Please let her in" He said quickly and walked back inside.
"Hi honey" Bola greeted as she walked in and proceeded to give Frank a peck. " You didn't call me since Sunday, why?"
"Nothing, but I would have called you today. We really need to talk"
"Yes, here I am honey" She replied sitting on the table in front of him. " I've missed you so much"
"Look Bola, you need to know that... He was still talking when she brought her mouth close to his and she engaged him in a kiss.
"Come on, stop" He exclaimed, breaking free from her grip.
"What's the matter Honey?"
"We shouldn't be doing this, I'm not your boyfriend"
"Come on, don't tell me you don't feel anything for me after everything that happened on Saturday"
"I don't" he said firm and stood up from his seat facing the window.
"Come on" Bola laughed " I know you are joking, I saw it in your eyes while we made love on Saturday". She stood up and walked towards him hugging in fr behind.
"You saw nothing in my eyes" He said taking away her hands from his body and facing her " I was not in my senses, I was drunk"
"No, don't give me that. You confessed you were looking for me through out the Party, why were you looking for me?"
"I wasn't looking for you, I was looking for someone else"
"That's a lie, you don't loose all your senses when you take alcohol" she said and looked into his eyes. "You even asked me to take you home"
"No, I couldn't have asked you to take me home"
"Yes, you did"
"If I really did, then I must have thought it was my Friend Kelvin I was talking to"
"That's a lie. Come on, why are you doing this?"
"I'm sorry, I just have to tell you the truth. I don't feel anything for you, what happened between us was a mistake."
"A mistake?" She asked already shedding tears "You took advantage of me"
"No, I swear. It wasn't intentional, I was drunk, I didn't know what I was doing"
"That's a lie, I don't believe you were drunk. You just put up all that pretense to make me take you home. How would you explain that just a bottle would take you out"
"It's true, no pretense. I don't take alcohol, so my system was probably not used to it"
"I'm not lying Bola"
"So, you are going to use and dump me and go after you stupid girlfriend ehn?"
"I don't have a girlfriend"
"You don't have a girlfriend?" She paused and caressed his face "then we can start up something"
"No, we can't. I'm in love with someone else"
"Is that person better than I am"
"Bola, she's your friend"
"Oh! That slut?"
"Don't you ever call her a slut again" he replied slightly raising his voice.
"Okay, I see. That was why she was acting concerned while you were blabbing in the party. Well, I told her not to come near you again. I told her you are my boyfriend"
"You did what?" Frank asked already getting angry
"Yes, that slut isn't good enough for you"
"Are you crazy?"
"Yes, I'm crazy, call me whatever you want, but you can't use and dump me and go for that cheap girl. Never! "
"I said don't call her names again "
"What if I do?"
"Just get out of this here now"
"Are you ordering me out"
"Get out" he shouted at her.
"Okay, I'll go. But just know you've not seen the last of me" She said and walked out of the salon angrily.
"Is there any problem sir?" Frank heard his tiny stylist voice mumble.
"Get out of here, I didn't call you" He picked up his keys and headed home although the day was still young.
"It good to meet you here mam, I never knew you were a senior staff in Videx" Kelvin said as Ini walked him out of the company's building.
"Yeah, they say people are like water. They flow, and we can never
tell where we'll meet each other again"
"True. We'll, I must commend you. You're really good at your job, I never thought a Lady could discuss so intelligently with me"
"Come on, ladies ain't dumb, they are the most intelligent creatures on earth"
"Hmmm. So when are we meeting again?"
"I thought we've discussed that already. We'll present your proposal to the board and get back to you"
"No, I'm talking about us. Both of us, when do we meet again?"
"Come on, run along. Your colleagues are waiting in the car"
"Please, I'm serious. Can I pick you after work tomorrow?"
"It's okay" she replied smiling
"Alright. Its a date, 4pm tomorrow" he replied and hurried to the car to meet his colleagues who were already getting impatient and stared at him suspiciously.

"So tell me, who is that lucky guy you are going
out with tomorrow?" Amarachi asked
"He works in your department?"
"No, he doesn't. It's Kelvin. The guy that helped
fixed our car two weeks ago"
"Oh! Where did you meet again?"
"He came to the company to negotiate a business
"Okay, so he added a date proposal too?"
"Yeah, silly you. What of your manager?"
"Um, we are going out this weekend"
"Wow! That's great"
Ini picked up her cell phone and stood up to walk
inside before she suddenly remembered
something, "Ehn Ehn, I spoke with Bola earlier
today" She said giving Ama a serious look
"She said something like you trying to snatch her
"Snatch her boyfriend?"
"Yes, she said since you've been after the guy, he
doesn't give her attention anymore"
"No, why would I snatch her boyfriend? I was
only chatting with Frank at the Party, I never
knew he was he was her boyfriend"
"Frank, which Frank? Her boyfriend's name is
"The one I was chatting with was Frank and she
already warned me not to come near him again"
"Well, that's what she said when she called me
today. I was even trying to explain that I've not
seen you with any guy since you came here but
she insisted you've been talking to her guy and
he's about to break up with her because of you"
"No, I warned him not to call me again the last
time he did" she replied and picked her phone to
search for Frank's number, she scrolled through
her call logs and found the number that called on
Sunday. "Here is his number, let me call him
"Do you really need to"
"Yes, lets settle this"
After some seconds of silence...
"Hello Amarachi, I was about to..."
"Excuse me please, I want you to clarify things
with your girlfriend. Tell her nothing is on between
us so she would stop disturbing me"
" What girlfriend? I don't have one"
"Bola, your girlfriend. Please settle with her, I
don't want any problems with her, thank you"
Amarachi ended the call.
"Ini, there's nothing between us" She continued
speaking with Ini
"I know girl, Bola is just a hot tempered girl. I
didn't even see you with her boyfriend. I thought
she said they had a quarrel and he wasn't
coming to the party"
"He came, you saw us together. He was the one I
was talking with when you asked me to join you
backstage before the toast"
"Oh! But the guy I saw with you wasn't Ken"
Amarachi's phone rings.
"He's calling back"
"Pick it up, lets hear what he has to say"
Frank voice came through the phone again.
"Hey, Amarachi. Bola is not my girlfriend, I only
met her recently"
"Why do men always like to lie?"
"No, I'm not lying, she is just an acquittance"
"And you came to her birthday party?"
"Yes, she invited me. Moreover, I came in search
"Hehe" Amarachi gave a short laugh "You came in
search of me? How on earth would you know I
was coming there?"
"I know she's your friend, I've seen you together
"It's okay please, you're beginning to get on my
nerves now. You said you just met her few days
ago, and you know she's my friend, you've even
seen us together before"
"Believe me, I'm not lying. My office is close to..."
"Pleaaaase... I've had enough of your junk
already. Don't call my phone again" she said and

"Amarachi doesn't believe I'm not Bola's boyfriend, she wouldn't even give me a chance to explain" Frank lamented.
"Hmmm bro, what I think is you do need to give yourself a break, you need to get yourself off this matter for sometime" Bode added.
"That's true, few weeks ago you were always cheerful till we met those girls, please don't allow anything weigh you down, you have lot of other things to set your mind on" Kelvin joined.
"I'm trying, but I just cant seem to stop thinking about Amarachi"
"Okay, what I think is that you have to take a break from work and chill out with other friends, your other girlfriends. I'm sure you'll be able to get your mind off or find someone better" Bode continued
"No, I object. If the guy likes Amarachi, let him go for her. Explain yourself vividly to her and she should understand you" Kelvin cut in
"How would I do that? She doesn't even want to hear from me"
"I think I may be able to help" Kelvin started. "I have a date with her friend tomorrow, I can convince her to help you speak with her"
"No please, don't let my problems ruin your date, I'll sort it out myself"
"No, it won't ruin my date. I'll just present it carefully"
"I insist, don't mention anything to her friend, I'll just sort out myself with her and probably find a way to forget her"
"It's okay bro, if that's what you want" Kelvin replied patting him on the shoulder.
"As you walked into the house and I saw you full of smiles, I know she must have agreed to go out with you" Janet teased her brother
"Naughty girl, you better mind your business. I don't know why I even told you about it"
"You told me because you were so excited and you couldn't keep it to yourself"
"Come on shut up, if you don't want me to send you back to school tonight" Dennis jokingly threatened
"Haha, you can't do that. I'm sure you enjoy my company, if i wasn't here, you'll probably be struggling with your new village wife"
"Oya, go and pack your bags, I'm driving you to school immediately"
"Haha, come carry me o" She said and ran towards her room as he ran after her. He pursued after her to the stairs and went back to sit in the living room.
"Silly girl, make sure you don't come downstairs again"
Janet walked into her room very glad, she had not seen her brother so happy in years. He used to be a very lively and playful person, until their Father died ten years ago. Their father's family members threw them out of the house and seized their father's properties and assets living them grow in penury. Their mother was helpless as non of her family members agreed to help, they were not in consent to her marriage as the couples' families were sworn enemies.
They had no choice than to move in with their mother's friend who was a widow. Their mother who was poorly educated resorted to frying and selling beans cake and yam on the street as a means of survival. She also did some petty manual jobs with Dennis assisting her. This trauma had affected Dennis, so he grew up with an unhappy attitude and barely laughed and joked no matter how funny the situation was. From being lively, he became an unnecessary quiet person always loving to stay on his own because he saw everyone as bad as his father's family members. His perspective of life had only change a little after he met a friend who led him to Christ two years ago
Back in the living room, Dennis and his mum were already engaged in an argument.
"Your wife has been complaining that you've refused to touch her since she came into this house"
"Mum, she's not my wife, I didn't marry her. You brought her here"
"Shut up Dennis" She said angrily "you refused to bring home a wife, now I've brought one home for you and you won't perform your duties"
"I owe her no duty Mum"
"Dennis" she said softly
"I'm your mother, tell me what's on your mind. Do you have any problem with that thing? She asked pointing to his manhood "tell me so we can do something about it quickly"
"Mum, what's all these you are saying? I don't have any problems"
"Then why have you refused to bring home a wife nor touch the one I brought for you"
"I'll bring home a wife very soon"
"That's what you always say"
"Mum, I promise you"
"No need to promise me just accept this one I brought"
"Okay Mum, give me two months and I'll show you the girl I want to marry, if I don't, you can give me anyone you want" he said before he realised the gravity of his words.
"Two months Dennis, Two months. Please let me see my grandchildren before I join my ancestors" she said and walked out of the parlour.

The week rolled out fast and it was Saturday already, Dennis started dressing up for his date by 1pm. Although they agreed to meet by 3pm, he decided to dress up early because he wanted no excuse for going late. He already called her in the morning and she confirmed that she was also looking forward to their meeting. By 1:45pm, he dialled her phone number again, but couldn't reach her due to network failure.
At exactly 2pm, he drove out of the house in his SUV jeep to Circular Restaurant and bar, one of the most expensive restuarants in the city. He got there by twenty minutes past two and settled in the table he already pre-booked. He picked up the phone to call her again but her phone was switched off.
He ordered for a drink to calm himself before her arrival, he assumed that her phone's battery was down.As he took the drink slowly he started thinking of how the date would go, he thought of his mother's reaction when he finally takes Amarachi home, he prayed silently to his creator to make her accept to be his girlfriend .
At three fifteen o'clock, Amarachi was not there yet and calls to her phone number refused to go through. He was almost getting frustrated but comforted himself when he remembered that a friend once told him that girls take so much time before they dress up and some of them always love to keep their guys waiting to see his reaction. Time rolled fast and it was four thirty pm already with no signs of Amarachi, Dennis was already frustrated and sweating profusely though the air conditioners were on.
After he waited till six o'clock, he walked out of the restaurant and drove home sorrowfully.
"Ken, what are you doing here? I thought I made it clear that it is over between us" Bola said as she opened her door and stood at the entrance.
"Come on baby, how can you say it is over between us? After all we've been through together"
"Ken, don't start. I'm not ready for any useless discussion this morning"
"Bola" he called calmly, "would you at least allow me in so we can settle this once and for all"
" There's nothing to settle Ken, I'm done with you", she said leaving the entrance for him to come in.
"Bola, we can work this out", he said getting on his kneels. "I'll make sure things work between us this time"
"You can't, not with your other girlfriends"
"I don't have any other girlfriend, I swear. That girl is just a LovePeddler, she drugged me and I didn't know what was happening when you came to my house that day"
"But what was she doing in your house at first?" She asked giving him a detective look.
"Baby, you you ... you don't understand" He stammered " It was a mistake and I promise you it will never happen again"
"Nonsense! But you don't even know how to treat a Lady" she lamented "you keep beating me up as if I'm your kid Sister or housemaid"
"I'm sorry baby, I will learn how to control my anger. I promise to never lay my hands on you again"
"Hahaha, when will you learn how to control your anger? When you finish killing me?" Don't worry I won't allow that happen" she said and proceeded into her room "please close the door when you leave"
With that she walked into her room and shut the door ignoring his pleading voice at the entrance. She commended herself for her bravery. Prior to this time, she couldn't talk with her ex-boyfriend Ken like that. He always ended up beating her anytime they have a slight argument. The last time he beat her for not knocking his room's door before entering and for shouting at him because she caught him sleeping with another girl , she was placed on drip and hospitalised for three days. Now, he was claiming to have changed and become a saint overnight.
After she was sure he already left her house, she walked out of her room and informed Okon, her new gateman never to allow Ken into the compound anymore.

Amarachi held her weak father's hand beside the hospital bed, she wished to speak with him but he was fast asleep and not to be disturbed according to the doctors.
"Mummy, why didn't you tell me he was sick all these while? Why did you have to wait till it got worst like this?"
"My daughter, I didn't know it will get worse, I didn't want to trouble you, you just left here for the city and I don't want you to start rushing home again" her mum replied her.
"You would have at least informed me "
"No, you just started your job and I want you to focus and make a success of it" She replied smiling "Don't worry, the doctors say your father would be okay very soon"
"Okay, I pray so"
"Ehen, you've not told me how you got the money, you've not worked up to a month so it couldn't have been your salary"
"Mama, I borrowed from my friend, Ini whom I stay with" Amarachi .
"Eh, she is kind o. May God bless her for me. Hope you are not giving her too much stress "
"Haba! Why will I stress her na?" She asked laughing.
"Okay, please thank her for me when you get to the city"
"She will hear".
Earlier in the day, Amarachi was choosing clothes to wear for her date when she got a call from the village that her Father was seriously ill and had been transferred to the general hospital. She was told that seventy thousand naira was needed by the hospital to commence the treatment. She was able to get help from Ini who gave Amarachi her ATM card to withdraw the amount of money she needed which was all she had in that bank account. While rushing to have her bath and journey to the village, she mistakenly dropped her phone into a bucket of water and it refused to come on again. She was lucky to meet a friend of hers who was a nurse in the hospital who helped her locate the ward her father was placed easily.
There was silence for some minutes before Amarachi spoke up again "Mummy, how is Sophia and Femi doing?
"Sophia is doing well, she is at home helping me sew some clothes. She will bring her father's dinner in the evening and wait to stay all night with him so that both of us can go and rest at home. Femi should also be at his Father's shop", she said smiling . You know we have to keep working so money for our upkeep comes in"
"It's okay, very soon Daddy will be alright" Amarachi replied and paused for some seconds. " I think its time for Femi to further with his HND program or with a BSc program if that's what he wants and Sophia should enrol for JAMB lessons so that she can write the exam next year"
"I know my daughter, that's what they are supposed to do, but we were still gathering money when your Father got ill and all the money has gone into it"
"Don't worry Mama, I should be able to send enough money by next month so that Sophia can enrol for lessons and Femi can take the form"
"Eh my daughter o, God bless you o " she said rejoicing and making a dance move.
"It's my duty Ma, it's time you people stop struggling so much." She said rubbing her mother on gently on her cheeks.
Ini heard a loud rumble from her stomach. The sound reminded her that she was hungry, she had been on her phone since Amarachi left the house chatting with Kelvin via BBM. Their date on wednesday was a wonderful experience for her, she had never met a guy like him who shared the same ideologies and was passionate for the same things she was.
"So you mean, you don't like football? Almost every guy I know loves football" she sent a ping.
"That's not me dear, I don't just find it so interesting"
"k" she replied like every normal Nigerian girl would reply to notify the guy to keep on talking.
"What do you mean by L?"
"I was helping you recite the alphabets since you wrote k, I helped you with L"
"Lol, you're not serious"
"Hehehe... How about your friend?"
"The one I saw you with that saturday"
"Okay, she's fine "
"Alright, there is this friend of mine who is really obsessed with her"
"Oh! Frank? Please tell him to give his girlfriend rest of mind"
"He doesn't have a girlfriend"
"What about Bola?"
"She's not his girlfriend"
"Are you sure?"
"Yes. He really does love your friend"
"I think he has to settle that by himself"

Hello everyone its smartshadow. I am currently using a friends nairaland account
Some of you might have read my novel(complicated desire).
Well thanks to the wise and mature minded moderators(and truly I say this with the highest level of sarcasm there is), I have been banned from this section and my work has been moved to sexuality section.
I must say that I wasn't by any means warned or alerted about this decision
It pains my heart because not only have I invested valuable time in writing this book, but there are nairalanders who have been following, supporting and enjoying my work.
It goes to show that its not everyone who can use a computer that actually has common sense.
I am in no way going to continue writing the novel because what inspired me to write in the first place was because I wanted to share in the intelligence and talent of writers and readers in this section.
So to everyone that has encouraged my work and who have been supportive, I say a big thank you.

Dennis walked into the house sorrowfully. "Good evening mum" he greeted and walked into his room immediately.
"Mummy" janet called as she trotted downstairs, "I thought I heard my brother's voice now"
"Yes, he's gone into his room already"
With that, Janet made her way to her Dennis' room. She opened the door without waiting for him to respond to her knock. He faced the wall as he took off his shirt.
"Welcome brother, I've been waiting for you to give me feedback on... " She paused when he turned to her and she saw the expression on his face "what happened? Did anything go wrong"
"She didn't show up Janet" Dennis replied
"She didn't? Why?" She asked in a surprised tone.
"I don't know, she switched off her phone"
"Maybe something went wrong with her"
"No, nothing went wrong with her, I'm sure. She probably takes me for a fool or thinks I'm a flirt and didn't think it worth it to go out with me"
"No, she won't do that. Even if she will do it to other guys not you, you are her boss. Of course, except she doesn't value her job"
"She did. She's intelligent, it won't be hard for her to get another job, so she must have played me"
"Come on, don't conclude so easily. I'm still sure something went wrong"
"It's okay Janet, please leave now. I want to be alone"
"Okay brother, please take it easy" she turned to walked out and turned back again "I'll be leaving fo school tomorrow afternoon, will you drop me?"
"I will, just leave me alone for now"

Amarachi walked into Dennis office at nine o'clock on Monday morning, she greeted him and gently placed a file on his table.
"Here is the document you requested for sir"
" Document? I've not requested for any document this morning" he replied without paying much attention to her but focused on his laptop.
"You told me on Friday to submit it today"
"Yes, but I told you to bring it by two o'clock in the afternoon"
"Yes, I just thought I should bring it earlier"
"Okay, you may tale your leave" he replied, picked up the file and shoved it underneath some other files, he looked up and she was still there "I said you may take you leave"
"Sorry sir, I wanted to apoligise for not showing up on Saturday"
"You don't need to apologise Miss, I made an error. Since you don't want to go out with me, let's just forget about it. " he replied sternly.
"It's not that" she replied with a pleading voice, "I got an emergency call, I had to rush to check my father who fell ill and settle his hospital bill"
"Your father fell ill?" He replied unconvinced she was saying the truth, he looked at her face and asked " was that why you also switched off your phone?"
"I didn't switch it off, it fell into water while I was in a rush to get the money and go to the hospital. I'll repair the phone later today"
"It's okay" he replied and argued within himself if she was really saying the truth, he dismissed the thought of her being dishonest because he concluded she had nothing to gain that way.
" I'm sorry about your Dad, hope he is better now?" He finally believed her
"Yes he is"
"Thank God" he replied with a brief smile and turned to have a proper view of her, "please sit for a moment". He turned back to his laptop and quickly saved a document he was reading.
"So why don't you buy a new phone instead of repairing that one?"
"It only fell into water, it can still be repaired"
"I think you should buy another."
"That would be after sometime sir, I can't get one now"
"Why can't you? Just tell me the kind of phone you want and we'll have it delivered here in less than two hours"
"I don't have money for that"
"I'll pay for it"
"No, you don't have to bother yourself. I'll get a phone myself"
"I insist, you'll take the phone from me as a punishment for missing the date" he said and both of them laughed.
Frank carefully skimmed through the account books for his three salons. He was amazed at how much progress he had made within few years, he thanked his God for giving him the wisdom to have started the hair styling business instead of loitering around Etyle city searching for a white collar job. His headquarter salon had grown so big and was the place most celebrities and prominent people in the country who lived in the city had their hair do.
He also made a sum of his savings in his personal bank accounts and had about a total of nine hundred thousand in them. He started to think of what to do with the money, he thought of adding more money to it and getting a new car or renting a separate apartment. He finally decided to go for a house first and open another branch of salon somewhere else in the city.
He was still thinking of his next move when his phone rang.
"Hello, Frank Stephen, Manager of Royal Salon on the line"
"Hello Frank, it's me"
"Who?" The voice sounded like Bola's but he asked to be sure.
"It's me Bola, don't you have my phone number again?"
"Bola, what do you want from me? We don't have any business together"
"We have Frank. Please I'm sorry for shouting at you in your office the other day. The truth is that I love you and I don't think I can live without you. Please, let us meet and talk about us"
"Are you done?" He asked unconcerned "get this straight! There is no us, please don't call me again, we have no business together"
"We'll continue to have a business together, I'm carrying your baby"
"You heard me right, I'm pregnant for you"
...to be continued
