MABEL.



'where is Jolade?' i asked Nathan immediately he entered.


He stopped, eyed me and turned to leave. He was in a very foul mood today, i could sense it.


'Nathan? Is it not you i'm talking to? Where is Jolade?'




'do i look like her keeper?' he barked angrily 'look woman, i'm in no mood for your nonsense this evening. It will do you so much good if you'll just leave me alone!'




He turned to leave.




I jumped up on my feet and held his hand tightly 'how dare you....'




He winced and i let go of his hands only to see blood dripping from it.



'oh my God!' i gasped 'who did this to you?'




He shot me an angry look 'just leave me alone!' he climbed the stairs and headed for his room.




My phone rang immediately. It was Mrs Tonia, Jolade's mum.




'hello Mabel, any news?' she asked immediately.




'i'm sorry friend. Uhm...Nathan is not home yet. I'm calling him but he aint picking his calls'




'same here. I'm also calling his line but he's ignoring my calls. Look Mabel, please help me tell him, if something bad happens to my daughter then he should be ready to take responsibility for it because he was the last person Jolade saw before she got missing'




'now how do you know he was the last person Jolade saw?'




'because she told me she was going to see him that day! See Mabel, dont let me involve the police in this matter. This is a very delicate situation. Nathan could go to jail if Jolade isnt found in 24hours'




'you seem to be forgetting something here Tonia' i said 'Jolade is an adult and she has the right to go wherever she wants to. Who knows where she went to after seeing Nathan? Or how sure are you that it was Nathan she went to see? My son is a good boy, and he loves Jolade....' i swallowed at my lie 'he would never do anything to hurt her. But that notwithstanding, i'll also ask Nathan when he gets back'




'i am just sounding a warning so it doesnt come as a surprise to you'




'i understand how you feel Mrs Tonia. But its so low of you to think that my own son would be capable of such act. Besides, its not even confirmed yet if Jolade is missing or not'




'bye' she hung up quickly.




I let out a sigh. Deep down, i knew what i told her was a lie. Nathan was capable of doing anything. I didnt know what to believe anymore.




What if he had held her hostage in a place so he could rape and use her at will? Nathan was capable of that.




I placed my hand on my forehead 'God, please take control'




I stood up and went to his room. I didnt knock, i just pushed the door and entered.




I gasped.




Nathan was unclad, on his knees, his manhood in his left hand and his right hand supported his nose as he inhaled the whitish substance on the table.




I knew Nathan smoked all manner of rubbish but never for once did i suspect that he could also be a drug addict! I never knew my son takes cocaine!




He was making muffled sounds while wanking.




'cocaine!' i gasped loudly.




He raised his head, looked at me, smiled drunkenly and continued wanking.




My legs suddenly felt weak under me. I went to his bed, fell on it and cried loudly.




God why me? Was Nathan the repercussion for all my sins? Was he my nemesis? Did Chichi lay a curse on me?




I wept. I cursed God. I cursed my mother for giving birth to me. I cursed his father for impregnating me and running away.




I cried like never before. My son didnt deem it fit to console me. When i raised up my head again, he was jerking as cum poured out of his di.ck. He was so shameless, he couldnt even cover his unclothedness.




I cried to the extent that i didnt know when i fell asleep on his bed. But i knew i woke up the next morning, just outside his room. He had taken me out of his room and placed me on the floor. He couldnt even drop me in my room on my bed. Nathan was so heartless.




But i made up my mind never to shed a tear for him again. He had done his worst. Now its time to teach him a lesson he would never forget in a hurry.

JOLADE.




'come, let me help you' Kelvin said stretching his hand. I took it. I hugged myself in cold.




He had taken me to his house, where i had freshened up and wore a big shirt of his and a baggy short of his.




'i'm so sorry about your ordeal ma'am, i never expected to see you in that uncompleted building..it actually belongs to my late elder brother. I know hoodlums do gather there and do all sort of bad things, so i just decided to check on it today. I was very shocked to see you there totally Unclad. I'm sorry, but were you raped?' he asked as we stood by the roadside waiting to board a cab.




'will you just shut up and leave me alone?!' i barked at him 'just because you found me in this unfortunate condition and helped me doesnt mean you should try to pry into my private life. Because no matter what, you still remain my common cleaner, do you understand?!!!'




He lowered his head for a while before speaking, and when he did, his voice was soft 'i'm sorry ma'am, i didnt mean to get you angry. I...i just think you might need help. If you're able to recognise anyone of those guys who did this to you, i could help you find....'




'and whoever said i was raped?!'




'i'm sorry'




'flag down a cab will you! Instead of just standing here and spitting nonsense!'




****




KAINENE.




'to be sincere mum, i did not like your reaction today, thats i did not like the way you handled things at the hotel today...' i said, my hands on my hips 'it was wrong, you didnt even care to listen to my own side of the story, you just went ahead to believe all that nicompoop was saying! Do you believe thats the same guy who slapped me at the hotel yesterday?'




My mum raised a brow, then smiled adjusting her glasses 'come on now Nene, you take things too serious. That guy is our customer and its our duty to take good care of our customers and overlook them sometimes'




'not for me! I believe every fuckup must be treated. If any customer tries to take advantage of me, then i'm so going to put that person into his pockets. Shits aint for me mum, i dont take it'




'do you realise you're speaking to me young lady?'




I sighed and rolled my eyes 'i'm sorry. But then you owe me an apology too!' i said pouting my lips 'do you know how many insults that stupid guy hauled at me?'




'i'm sorry dear. I'm just teaching you how to handle customers and respect their wishes. Besides, that guy looked like a nice catch...' she winked at me.




'oh oh! I said it!' i clapped my hands 'i knew you had something up your sleeves. I know you mum, i know you more than anyone else does! Fuc.k shi.t!'




She frowned immediately 'Kainene!'




'okay, sorry! I'm sorry about my language. But then, you should quit on doing such things. It wont work. Its high time you started realising that male antics wont work for me. No man would be given the chance to toy with my heard just the way yours was toyed with!' It was out before i could stop it.




I held my mouth immediately looking at my mum's sudden frown 'i'm very sorry mum'




She picked up her reading glasses and newspapers and left for her room without a second glance.




I felt really bad. I felt like going after her but i knew it would be best if i apologise the following morning.




My phone buzzed beside me. I hissed when i saw the caller. Why was she calling me?




I pushed the phone aside without picking, but when it continued to ring, i changed my mind.




'hello Kamsiyochukwu, why are you calling my line by this time of the night?' i asked angrily.




'K baby, take a chill pill there...' she said softly 'i called to apologise for what happened the other say. Please forgive me. I never meant to hurt you with my words. I'm really sorry'




'look Kaka...' i swallowed hard 'just, leave me alone'




'i'm so sorry. It wont happen again. Remember you slapped me. That slap blocked my ears i had to visit eh...what do they call those doctors that treats ears again...eh hen eartrician....'




I started laughing 'eartrician indeed! Are you sure you even went to school?'




'first class babe like me, na you dey use dey play abi? You dey chop bottle? No allow me tear your head ooo'




'eh hen, shebi na you dey apologise before, you con dey threaten me abi? Oya bye bye, no call my line again!'




'ahn ahn, someone cannot play with you. Is that how you used to do?'




'okay, do the do. May the spirit of kolewerk kill you!'




'amen!'




I laughed 'yeye girl. Okay now, make i go sleep. Time don do'




'i dey show for your crib tomorrow. You dey reach hotel?'




'no oo. I no get strength. I no go go tomorrow'




'no quata'




'sha no bring Marcus come'




'hahahaha, no problem. Nightie dearie, i love u'




'i love you too Kaka'




She laughed and hung up.

CHIOMA.




'so i said i saw Chukky, Chuks, your ex husband. He wasnt looking bad at all and we really spoke at length' Dr Baide spoke.




I only nodded my head and pretended to be interested but honestly i wasnt. I knew Chuka had sent him. Baide had been our best man during our wedding, and he had been my ex.




I had met Chuks through him. We had had a very huge fight that led to our breakup. And Chuks had been the one trying to settle us but i was done with Baide and his womanising ways. I couldnt tolerate anymore.




And so Chuka and i became friends. And the rest they say, is history. But Baide was never angry at our union, infact, he wished us well. Little did i know that they were friends of the same feather. Baide was still single. He never married and he turned sixty last month. Thats to say i've known him for over fourty years.




'Chioma, why not give Chuka a chance?' he suddenly asked.




I rested my chin on my palm 'he sent you didnt he? I knew it!'




'Chukky still loves you. Chioma, you both have a kid together....'




'a kid? My daughter aint a kid anymore. She's 24 now'




'na the same thing we still dey talk...' he pinched his white beards 'you just have to forgive and forget and renew your wedding vows, marriage is for better for worse'




'i hear. When he was busy sleeping with all my friends, did he think about it?'




'na temptation cause am. He was tempted, he couldnt resist the temptation to stick his, you know..' he winked 'into another pot'




'and he thought it was best to stick his whatever into the pots that were very close to me?'




'everyone makes mistake Chioma. Chuks has made his own mistakes. He has been away from 20yrs now, has he not tried? Dont you miss him at all?'




I hissed and looked around. My customers were well attended to so i returned my gaze to Baide 'look Baide, tell Chukky that i said, when i told him it was over i meant it. Even if he comes back again, i will not accept him. I'm a fifty one year old woman, and i'm past the age of romance and what have you...'




'thats where you get it all wrong old lady! Aint i a sixty year old man? That doesnt stop me from servicing...you know what i mean' he sipped from his cup.




'thats because you've always been an inborne womanizer Baide. Unfortunately, it took me time to realise that an apple does not fall far from his tree. I should have known that only birds of the same feathers flock together'




'do you believe that i really loved you way back in our youthful days?'




'i hear you sir'




He reached for my hands 'there's nothing better than having your loved ones by your side during old age. Chuka must have realised that and thats why he's back. In as much as i would love to have you back in my life as i still love you, we both know its impossible. Its too late to continue from where you stop. Besides, i'm far gone to womanizing and i cant come back' he winked.




'alright now Baide, i've had enough of this. My answer to Chukky, i mean Chuka Igho is the same'




'now tell me, why do you still answer Mrs? Why do you still bear his surname?'




I shifted uncomfortably 'its none of your business Baide Williams'




He laughed 'you are my friend Mrs Chioma Igho. My first and last love' he winked again.




I pushed the chair backwards and stood up 'i'm sorry but i no longer have time for this kind of discussion. I have to go to the kitchen and see what those cooks have been up to'




'i dont see Kainene around, where has she gone to?'




'she didnt come today'




'okay, tell her her godfather says hi. Tell her to stop by at the hospital'




I smiled 'i will'




He winked at me again and i walked away.




'excuse me ma...' i heard someone say from behind me.




I turned to see a familiar face.




'i cant see Kainene around? Can you tell her to come sit beside me by my table?' the guy said and i remembered him. The Nathaniel Imore from two yesterday.




'oh! Nathaniel, is that you? I'm so sorry but Kainene isnt around today, i hope no problem?' i asked politely with a smile.




He snorted 'is that how the staffs of this hotel behave? They come to work at will?'




I retained my smile 'Kainene isnt a staff'




'then what is she? A sex worker?'




'i beg your pardon?' i said slightly offended 'i own this hotel and she's my daughter. She manages this hotel alongside me. She isnt a staff and i beg of you not to speak of her in that manner again'




I expected him to apologise but he didnt 'can i at least have her number?'




I knew Kainene would not like it, besides, he didnt ask nicely 'i might as well give you if you'll just ask nicely'




'forget it!' he said and walked away. I smiled shaking my head, no wonder Kainene hated him, so arrogant.




I felt a gentle tap on my shoulder. I turned and it was him 'can i PLEASE have it now?'




I smiled 'no problem'
