‘Bisola is twenty and studying biochemistry at University of Lagos, Unilag. She wanted to study medicine but had to settle for biochemistry.’

I nodded. It was not unusual to hear that.

‘I stayed at the G.R.A too,’ she went on.

Again, I was surprised. ‘Really?’

‘Yes. Senator Osho gave me the two-bedroom flat to stay. It’s one of the benefits of working for the senator.’

I nodded. I could see that indeed, the senator was generous to her.

The jeep drifted with the traffic along Ikorodu Road until it got to Maryland and turned left.

Several minutes later, we got to Ikeja G.R.A.

‘What’s the name of your street again?’ she asked.

‘Egunjobi Street.’

‘That’s not far from my place. I live at Akinbiyi Crescent.’

I knew the place as I had been there many times before. When we got to the junction that led to my street, I thanked her for the ride.

‘I’ll like to get down now, madam. Thank you very much for the ride and everything.’

She pulled the car to a halt. ‘You’re welcome.’

I got down from the car, waved at her and moved on. The junction to my house was less than four hundred meters, so I could easily walk it. It was few minutes to seven when I entered our residence. Kike came to welcome me and to hug me as if we had not seen for a long time.

‘How was work?’ she asked.

‘Fine.’ I grinned at her. ‘How was home?’

‘Fine too. I understand you’re not working for daddy again.’

‘Yes. I now work for a senator.’

‘A senator in Abuja?’

I laughed shortly. ‘Yes, he works in Abuja, but his constituency is here in Lagos State. He is daddy’s friend. Right now, he is in Lagos, preparing
for his re-election.’

I moved inside the house and climbed the stair case to my room. Kike was on my heels.

‘So, what will you be doing for him? Are you the one to campaign for him?’ she asked further.

I unlocked the door to my room and entered. She entered with me.

‘Well, I suppose I’ll be part of his campaign team.’

‘You’re now a politician?’

I grinned again. Normally, I would have got irritated by her seemingly endless questions, but somehow, I was beginning to have a soft spot for her.

‘You’re now a politician?’

I grinned again. Normally, I would have got irritated by her seemingly endless questions, but somehow, I was beginning to have a soft spot for her.

‘No, I’m not a politician, my dear Kike.’

I sat on the bed. She quickly came to my side to help in removing my shoes and socks. She never did that before, so I was quite surprised.

‘Thanks,’ I told her.

‘You’re welcome,’ she replied, smiling. I pulled her to me and kissed her deep, long and hard.

She was breathless by the time it was over. My hands went to her boobs and fondled them. I would have gone further than that, but a car drove
inside the compound.

She pulled herself away from me.

‘That must be mummy,’ she said and hurried out of my room.

I grinned as I saw her hurry away. Oh, what a loveable character Kike was turning out to be. I sighed and changed into t-shirt and boxer.

By the time I got downstairs, Kike told me that mum had gone to her room. I sat in the sitting-room to await her coming, but I didn’t wait for
long. Kike was back.

‘Mummy said you should see her in her room,’ she informed me.

I grinned at her and nodded. Then I stood up to go back upstairs while Kike returned to the kitchen. I knocked once and opened the door.

‘Evening, mum,’ I greeted.

‘Henry, how’re you?’

‘Fine. How was business?’ That had become my standard way of greeting.

‘Fine, we thank God. How’s your new place of work?’

‘Well, it’s not bad, but I’m learning new things.’

She nodded. ‘I know you’ll do well. I know you’ll adjust and do well.’

I nodded too. ‘I’ll try my best.’

I sat on her bed.

‘Have you eaten?’

I shook my head. ‘Kike is still cooking.’

‘I’ve told her to always start cooking evening meal on time. By seven p.m., the food should be ready.’

I didn’t say anything.

‘Let’s go downstairs and see how far she’s gone,’ she said further. I followed her out of her bedroom to the kitchen. Kike was in there, turning the
wheat meal she was making on the fire.

‘I thought by now the food will be ready,’ mum said. ‘You should always start preparing evening meal on time.’

‘Yes, ma,’ was all Kike said.

I lingered a bit in the kitchen until the food was done and mum dished it in plates. I went to the dining table while Kike brought my food. As usual,
the meal was more than what I could finish. Mum was always generous with dishing sumptuous meal for me. She too was at the table and while
we ate, Kike waited on us.

I chatted with mum in the sitting-room after the meal until dad came. He too asked how the job went and I told him it was well. After staying in
the sitting-room for several other minutes, I excused myself and went to my room. I switched on the television and watched the news absent-
mindedly. By nine o’clock, I had slept off with the t.v still on.

A couple of hours later, a hand tapped me gently and roused me from sleep. I opened my eyes to see Kike staring at me.

After staying in the sitting-room for several other minutes, I excused myself and went to my room. I switched on the television and watched the news absent-mindedly. By nine o’clock, I had slept off with the t.v still on.

A couple of hours later, a hand tapped me gently and roused me from sleep. I opened my eyes to see Kike staring at me.

‘I was hearing the sound from the television and I thought you were still awake,’ she said apologetically.

‘Oh, it’s you,’ I said, quite dreamily. I checked the clock in the room. It was few minutes to mid-night.

‘You’ve not slept?’ I asked. It was obviously an irrelevant question, but I had nothing else to say at that very moment.

‘Yes, so I came to see you.’

I smiled at her. I was now fully awake and could see that she was in bum short and skimpy top.

‘Something is bothering my mind,’ she said.

I sighed and sat up on the bed. ‘What’s that?’

‘It’s actually a question I want to ask you.’

I chuckled. ‘A question for me? Well, go ahead and ask it.’

She hesitated. I held her hand. ‘Come on, Kike, go ahead and ask your question.’

She still hesitated. I moved my right hand on her back in a handling manner. My hand went to her chest, but surprisingly, she moved away.

‘What’s wrong?’ I asked, surprised.

She shrugged. ‘Nothing.’

‘Then why did you move away?’

She became mute. I drew her to myself and made her to sit on the bed beside me. My left hand wrapped her shoulders. ‘Why don’t you tell me what it is?’

She shrugged again. ‘It’s nothing.’

‘No, I won’t believe that,’ I put in. ‘Did mum say harsh words to you?’

‘No.’

Did you quarrel with anybody?’

‘No.’

I suddenly grinned. ‘Have I stopped treating you like a lady?’

Now, she hesitated and I knew what she meant.

‘Okay, I’m sorry if I have. Forgive me. I’ll compensate you. What do you want me to buy for you?’

Her eyes suddenly lit up, but then, she shook her head. ‘It’s not about buying things for me.’

I rubbed her shoulders. ‘So, tell me what it is about.’

‘It is a question,’ she said.

‘Oh, come on Kike, go ahead and ask the question. Okay, maybe you think I’ll get angry over it. I hereby promise I won’t be angry. So, go ahead.’

‘Will you answer it?’

‘Of course, I will, except I don’t know the answer.’

She took a deep breath in. ‘Do you have any other feeling for me apart from just playing with me?’

It was my turn to take a deep breath in. ‘Oh, what kind of question is that?’

‘You promised to answer it.’

I nodded. ‘Yeah, but I don’t know what to say.’

She stood up. ‘That means you don’t have any feelings for me except the lustful urge.’

‘Hey, I didn’t say that.’

She moved towards the door. ‘You’ve implied it. Alright, goodnight.’

‘Come here. That’s your interpretation.’

She didn’t answer me. I was surprised that she walked out of my room. Hey, what was going on? Why was she suddenly behaving like this? Yes, I
had been playing with her before, but I had only had sex with her once. I thought she enjoyed the whole thing, so what feelings was she talking about?

‘Come here. That’s your interpretation.’

What game was she playing? I thought she came around so that we could play a bit, but see how she diverted the whole thing! I was angry with her. And to say that she disturbed my sleep!

I switched off the television and resumed my sleep. The next morning, I dressed up for work at the same time I dressed for work the previous day. I would not need to wait for dad to take me to the place of work again. I was dressed in a white shirt, black trousers and black jacket. I decided that my job did not really require that I should be wearing tie for now.

A breakfast of cornflakes was waiting for me at the table.

'Good morning, Kike,' I greeted.

'Good morning,' she answered from the kitchen. I noticed that she had dropped using the title 'uncle' for me. I grinned and shrugged. She
remained in the kitchen while I took the meal. She was obviously avoiding me. I decided to let her be for now. My breakfast was over. I picked
my black folder and went out of the house. I would be going to my place of work in the car today and I would be going to the club after closing,
I decided. About a minute to eight, I got to the office at Yaba. I went straight to Ms. Davies' office to say good morning to her.

'Good morning, Henry,' she replied. 'How're you?'

'Fine, ma'am.'

I went to my office. Rasheed and Titi had not come. I brought my smart phone out to read some on-line news. The office assistant, Nancy, came
to tell me Mrs. Davies wanted to see me.

I logged off and went to see her.

'Please, you will do something for me,' she said as soon as I entered the office.

'What's that, ma'am?'

'There's a file I was supposed to bring along when I was coming to work this morning, but I forgot it on my dining table. My daughter is in the
house, and I've already told her I'm sending somebody over.' She looked at me curiously. 'You can handle that my jeep, can't you?'

Was there a car I could not handle? 'Sure, I can,' I said.

'Good.' She brought out the car key and handed it to me. 'Please, drive carefully. Go to my house. The number is 90B and the flat is upstairs.
Anyway, Sule the security man will direct you. You will meet Bisola, my daughter, and she will hand the file to you.'

I nodded. 'No problem, ma'am.'

She brought three thousand naira from her purse. 'In case, there's need to buy some fuel, use this.'

I nodded again. 'Alright, ma'am.'

I left her office and walked down the corridor. Just then, I saw Titi as she made her way to the office. I waved at her and moved on. Her car
was sleek and it made such a smooth drive. I might tell dad I wanted a change of car. The traffic was light so it took less than thirty minutes to get to her street.

Locating the number of her house posed a slight problem as the numbering was not in order. I finally found it and parked by the gate. The security man, the one she called Sule came to accost me.

'Ms. Davies sent me,' I said. He didn't let me finish the sentence as he interrupted.

'She no dey house.'

I grinned. 'I know. She asked me to get a file from her daughter who is in the house.'

'Oh, it is her daughter you want to see, ba?'

'Yes, to get the file she said I should bring from her.'

He nodded. 'Okay. Go inside. Their flat dey right side when you don climb up.'

I nodded and thanked him. I got inside the building, climbed up the stair case and pressed the bell of the flat he directed.

In a jiffy, a voice called from within: 'Who is that?'

I cleared my throat. 'I'm the one sent by your mum to get the file.'

There was a moment of pause. Then, the door was unlocked and opened.

I cleared my throat. 'I'm the one sent by your mum to get the file.'

There was a moment of pause. Then, the door was unlocked and opened.

'Please, come in.'

I entered the living-room. 'Good morning,' I greeted.

'Good morning.'

Bisola looked like her mum, especially with her eyes.

'Are you Bisola?' I asked. The question was absolutely unnecessary, but I had the urge to ask it.

'Yes, who are you, please?' She looked at me all over as if she was making an evaluation.

'I'm Henry and I work for her.'

She nodded. 'Yes, let me get the file.'

She went to the dinning-table.

'I was told you're a student of the university,' I said aloud. 'Why are you not in school?'

She was soon back to the sitting-room with the file.

'Don't you listen to news?' she parried.

I raised an eye brow. 'What news?'

'Didn't you hear that ASUU is on strike?'

Now, I remembered. Florence said the same thing.

'Oh, I see.'

She smiled at me as I got the file from her.

'Thank you, Bisola.'

'You're welcome.'

I nodded at her and turned to go. 'Have a nice day.'

'Yeah, you too.'

I left the flat and drove back to the office. This time around, there was some traffic. It took more than one hour to get back to the office. About
noon, a truck came to deliver consignments of face caps and t-shirts bearing the name of the senator and the party logo. These were meant to
be distributed to people when campaigns and rallies started we sorted them out and arranged them in bales. By four o’clock, Ms. Davies informed
that I could close for the day. I had not seen the senator since morning. He had probably gone to attend some political meetings.

'I suppose you came with your car today,' she said.

'Yes, madam.'

'Good night, then.'

'Good night, ma'am.'

I changed my mind about going to the club, so I drove home. As usual, Kike opened the main door for me.

'Hello, Kike. How're you?'

'Fine.'

She was acting too cool for my liking. Rather than following me upstairs to my room, she went straight to her room. I followed her there.

'What's the problem, Kike?' I asked.

'Nothing.' She sat on her bed and I sat by her. I just felt I should say or do something that would make her to be excited.

'I miss you,' I said. She didn't say anything.

'Did you hear me?'

'Yes.'

'And you didn't say anything?'

She folded her arms across her chest. I wrapped my left hand on her shoulders.

'You don't believe me?' I asked.

'I don't know.'

'But you should know.'

She didn't respond. Okay, she was playing games. I could play games too.

She folded her arms across her chest. I wrapped my left hand on her shoulders.

'You don't believe me?' I asked.

'I don't know.'

'But you should know.'

She didn't respond. Okay, she was playing games. I could play games too. I knew what to tell her that would make her smile and be warm, and I
would do just that

'My darling,' I started. It was the first time I would use such an endearment for her. I could feel her body glowing. I rubbed my hand on her back.

Then, I cautioned myself. Must I play this game with her? Must I say those things I had in mind to say, just to please her? I wanted to stop
myself, but I could not. But, what was special about Kike? Among all the numerous ladies I had dated, she was the one that had the least sexual
appeal to me. Did I even date her? What I not just flirting with her? She ought to be the least consequential among my ladies. What I should do
was to get on my feet and leave her room. If she refused to yield in to my flirting with her, I should forget about her. There were numerous other
ladies I could flirt with, ladies that were much better than her.

Alright, Henry, my mind said. Get up and leave her alone.

I could not. Right now, I had no sexual urge with her, but felt like being good to her. Everything should not be about sex.

I caressed her back again and she leaned her head on my left shoulder. Well, her warmth was returning and I somehow found myself glad about
that.

'How was work?' she asked.

The magic was working. I grinned to myself. 'Fine.'

'I miss you, too.'

I chuckled. 'Now, I'm here.' I placed her on my legs.

'My period has started,' she warned.

I didn't find that repulsive. Rather, I held her tighter. 'It's okay,' I said. 'I just want to feel you.'

She hugged me in return and we remained entangled for several minutes. I could feel her heart beat. I loved the feel of her chest on mine.

'When is your next birthday?' I asked.

'May five. Why did you ask?'

'That's just a few months from now. I asked because I wanted to know.'

I kissed her. I wanted to make it brief but end up making it long and deep.

When we stopped, she stood up from my legs.

'You've not changed from your office wears,' she pointed out.

'Oh, that's true.' I got up from her bed and walked to the door. She smiled and followed me. Like the previous day, she helped me to remove my
shoes and socks.

'What did you say are your future plans?' I asked.

'I will soon write UTME. I plan to gain admission to university this year.'

I nodded. 'What do you plan to study?'

She smiled. 'My first choice is law.'

I grinned at her. 'Oh, so you have the plan to be a lawyer. You really think you'll be able to defend cases in court?'

She laughed. 'I'll try to.'

We continued to chat until mum came home.
