Chapter 28


"Go away" she said as she use her pillows to cover ears and go back to sleep but whoever was outside her door did not hear her or probably care that they were interrupting the best sleep she has had in ages. Since the person kept knocking,she reluctantly got up from the bed and wrapped her robe around her and went to the door only to open it to find the most annoying man in the world grinning at her. He was wearing a green tee shirt
on a nice pair of jeans that emphasized all six feet three inches of his height,wait how did she know his height? "What can I do for you?" She blurted out instead

"I brought breakfast" he replied winking at her

"Can't remember asking you to get me anything"

"That doesn't matter" he replied and pushed the door with his body and walked in like she invited him,he headed straight to her bedroom

"Come back here" she screamed at him. She shut the door and followed him and found him lying across her bed "do you know how obnoxious you are? Now
get off my bed this minute or I will scream so loud this building might shake"

"Geez woman,its just breakfast and then we go out for sight seeing its obvious you are a tourist so lemme be your personal tour guide"

"Thank you but I already had a tour yesterday" she replied and pulled a pillow from under him "now get out"
He sat up grinning at her "please don't tell me its one of those paid tours you are talking about? Hahahahah,I see don't worry just eat your breakfast,take a bath and I will show you the real SA" then gave her a wink. She hissed and went to the closet picked her clothes and dashed for the bathroom and locked the door before proceeding to clean up.

Once she was through and changed to her new clothes,she stepped out to find him reading one of her novels and leaning on the wall "where is the food" she
asked and he pointed a nylon on the cupboard,she picked it up and headed out to the patio ignoring him and eating everything he got for her.
"You know,for a very hungry person you sure do have an attitude" she found him leaning on the door,ignoring she packed everything to and tossed then in the trash can,turning to face him"okay now that I have eaten your food will you leave?"

"Hell no,its now time for our date"

"What date,dear Mr Thomas please don't deceive yourself, am not going on any date with you not now or ever"

"And why is that if I may ask"

"Because am a married woman" that seem to rattle him a bit because he suddenly had an expression on his face "oh my goodness,you had no idea I was married,it's so funny,you were wasting your charms on me instead of a
single lady. You should see the look on your face right now its speechless" she laughed hard

Composing himself,he moved from the door "okay,so what,you are married. We can still hang out as friends. I mean its not like I fancied you that much or something" he said and she stopped laughing and it was his turn to laugh "wait o,you really think I fancied you" he arched his eyebrows before shaking his head "you know let's just be on our way so I can waste my charms on single ladies" he was definitely loving seeing her face blow up
with rage,he added "so since am not trying to get into your pants anymore,can we be free with one another. you know where you can just call me Thomas and I can call you by your name that you still haven't told me"

"The name is Adanna and I don't know what your end game here is but lemme just let you know now that I am not interested and never will be"

"Okay, then that's settled now can we go out Adanna?" He said and pointed the way out.




Adanna didn't want to admit it but she was having an exciting day way more than she could ever have imagine and if she was truly being honest with herself then she will have to admit this was her best day yet in South
Africa. They started out window shopping and then had a light lunch at a restaurant then he told her about a boat party that his friend was throwing later in the day and invited to come as his date. He dropped her at the
hotel where she freshen up and prepared for the party and when it was time he picked her up. At the party,she saw a lot of celebrities and they all seemed to know Thomas and it made her realize how little she knew about him,well once they are somewhere quiet,she will try her best to know more about him. The party was filled with alcohol and cigarette smoke that made
the place stuffy,soon they were seated and more drinks and wraps of blunt were being passed around,since she does not drink,she helped herself to the small chops on a beautiful craft table by the corner

"Should I roll one for you?" Thomas asked her

"Nahh am good" she replied
"I guess its more for me then and I don't mind that" he whispered in her ears. She ignored him and looked around her,the party was in full swing and people appear to be in cliques. They was a section where they were playing foosball and at another there seem to be a beer drinking competition going on and in another corner there was definitely a making out session going on,it was like they were trying to tear each other's skin out.

"Stop staring"

She looked at him "am just observing"

"Yeah right"

"Can you take me to the rest room"

"Believe me you don't want to go there"

"Well I want to, now get your ass up let's go" she stood up from the couch and he followed suite then led her to the door,he waited outside while she stepped in and wished immediately that she hadn't, all she saw were couples in different positions,she turned around and walked out almost immediately

"You believe me now?" He took her hands in his "let's go" he waved at the host and they left. The drive back was in silence and he walked her up to her door.

"Thanks for everything,I had a good time" she said as she opened her door

"You are welcome" he replied and then an awkward silence followed and he shifted nervously with his hands in his pockets"I guess this is good night" and turned to walk away,then paused and faced her "be ready tomorrow morning, you are following me to work, I will be here by 7"

"And where is work?"

"You will find out" and he walked away.

She watched him go and then proceeded to her room,she dropped her bag and got rid of her clothes and had a quick shower,then she changed into her nighties and climbed her bed. She took her phone dialled Adams number, he picked immediately and they spoke for over an hour and as soon as the call ended she was fast as sleep.






...............






Work she discovered was a photo shoot for a fashion magazine as she discovered Thomas was a photographer. This morning,they were at a private
beach where the shooting was taking place. Everywhere was rowdy as everyone was going about their business. The editor of the fashion magazine and Thomas were going through details for the shoot and also arguing about things she could not hear.They were supposed to have started but one of the.model was yet to arrive and the other three were being the ultimate divas and driving everyone insane. She recognized two of the models from a TV commercial, where they had appear sweet and down to earth but the real life version of them were just the opposite.

When the last model finally arrived,they had to rush up her makeup and get her ready for the shoot. Soon,shooting commenced and Thomas worked his magic. She had never seen him so concentrated and it was mesmerizing watching him work. He was confident
about his work and it showed in how he carried himself and the orders he gave. Half way into the shoot,the model who arrived late slapped another who returned in kind and soon a tussle began and in the process they pushed another model who collapsed. Staffs ran in to break the fight and the model who fainted was taking to a corner where she received medical attention.

The editor gave an hour break to sort things out and also for lunch. Thomas walked off the set and towards the water and began smoking, that was probably his hundredth cigarette for the day,she lost count after he
finished the first three packs. She picked a plate and took some sandwiches and two pack of juice and went to meet him. She gave him a pack of juice and a sandwich and they ate in silence and watched the waves. After a while he led her to some rocks where they sat down

"Sorry about all the mess you had to witness,I would have love to tell you this was a one time thing but this is the fashion industry, its always a miracle if a shoot goes smoothly" he took another cigar from his pocket "do
you mind if I smoke" when she nodded he lit it and took a long drag

"Those models must be very strong to knock the other one off like that" she said and he looked at her like she was a child and laughed

"Lord Adanna don't be that naive,even a rat would have knocked her off her feet. Its very obvious that she needs to eat something but all these models are always starving themselves its crazy"

"I guess she wants to maintain her trim figure"

"What about if she dies in the process huh?" He took another drag and faced the sea.

"What made you become a photographer?"

"Money,I needed money so I worked as an assistant for a photographer and with time I grew in ranks and started shooting for myself and then went to a film institute for a programme and returned fully"

"Wait,so you are saying you don't like your job or what?"

"Am saying I got into it because of the money,I don't hate but I also am not that thrilled about it like I once were. I like the art of photography,I mean its like immortalizing a moment you know but am at a point right now where I want more. I have always wanted to do documentaries but here I am taking photos of those entitled brats but am not complaining because the
pay is good and looking how far I have come and am grateful. I mean who would have thought that a boy like me could ever leave the slum and make it this big".

" I guess your family will be proud of you"

"Maybe but they are all dead so I don't know if they are proud or not"

"What happened to them?"

"Let's see,my mum had an accident and was admitted in the hospital, my siblings were heading over to see her on a bike and got crushed by a truck and my mum died later that evening. Don't ask about my father because I
don't know who he is,I have never seen him and my mum never spoked about him. I was the oldest child and had to fend for the family early and I probably would have been on that bike too but I was on duty to wash the
plates at the restaurant where I worked so that's about it"

"Geez,you had to grow up fast I guess"

"Yeap" he replied. They talked about their childhood and she even told him about her the things that had been happening in her life in the past months,she even told him about her suicide attempt, which was strange for
her,giving the fact that she had not been able to open up to anyone before but with him it was so easy to just tell him and it didn't help that he was a good listener and she was open with him.

Soon the break was over and the shoot continued, apart from the grumblings from the models from time to time,everything ran smooth and they wrapped up
early. They had dinner at a restaurant and then he dropped her off.

The next couple of days seem to move fast,Thomas made each and everyone of them memorable. They had a lot of fun and he took her to many places,she felt
like she was a local who had spent all their life there. The night before she was to return to Nigeria he took her to see a movie and they had dinner at a cozy restaurant by the water side and took a stroll down the beach.
When it was late, he took her back to her lodge. Once again standing in front of her door like their first night he said "I guess this is goodbye,I would have loved to take you to the airport tomorrow but I have a photoshoot first thing in the morning."

"Its no problem, I already made plans with the hotel to take me"

"Okay,that's cool,so then...ermm goodnight till when ever we see ourselves again" he said looking into her eyes

"Yes but you know you don't have to leave now,we can both go inside and chat and maybe watch another movie"

Taking her hands,he replied" believe me I want to go in with you but chatting or watching a movie is definitely not what I have in mind so we are not going to tempt faith....I might be a lot of things but married
women are off limits for me and even though you are in the process of getting a divorce,you are still married so that's just beyond me right now" he gave her a peck on her cheek and walked away.
