(A fiction for every lover of story)

copyright 2019 Seriezbymo

I jolted awake, my eyes went straight to the clock, it was 2.15 pm .
" oh my God, I totally driftedt off " I mumbled.

I had gone for a job interview earlier in the morning and was so tired due to the heavy traffic, that made me drifted off on the sofa in the living room. l glanced through my watch again.

The thought that Tutu had not returned from her outing crossed my mind, anyways she told me earlier that she won't be home on time.

Tutu was my flatmate, we shared an apartment together,she was a very caring friend, and a lover of adventure.

I leaned my head against the back of the sofa, as the thought of the just concluded job interview ran through my mind.

In few minutes, I heard the sound of the gate thrown open. I peeped through the window, then saw Sharon hurrying towards our apartment.
Before I could reach for the door, she rapped on it, afterwards I opened.
Her face lit up with radiance " Hi Lola " she said.
" Hello Sharon ! "
" Is Tutu home ? " She asked. " No she isn't. "
" Awwwww................................ I thought she would have come back by now. " sounding quite disappointed.

" Ok, let me drop this for her ." she began to search through her bag. As she did I took a glance at her appearance. Her accessories, shoes, wrist watch, bag, wig and others.

" how expensive they looked " a little voice said inside of me.
She handed the envelope to me.
" please give her this money when she comes back, I won't be able to wait for her, am in a hurry to somewhere. " I collected the envelope.
" Thank you " she said and made her way to the gate.
I shut the door and dropped the envelope on the table, then settled back on the sofa.

The Tutu i knew never gallivanted around different men. But she never hid the fact that she had a sponsor (sugar - daddy ), which was Michael.
Micheal was so addicted to Tutu that he never for once replaced her as his mistress.
At the other hand, Tutu really knew how to play her game, as she only stuck to Michael. But always solicited for (clients )different well-to-do men for both Sharon and Mimi.
Sharon and Mimi were high-toned call-girls, of course they were both obligated to pay Tutu her own share after every hook-up deal .
Despite that I always discouraged Tutu, I still can't deny the fact that she made an average living from her lifestyle.

I reached for my handbag, and brought out my phone. I have missed three calls already.
" Oh, it's aunty Ella " I murmured.
Aunty Ella was a friend and a big sister to Tutu and I, she loved to always have us around her, especially me.
I knew she wanted to ask me about the job interview, but since I was bored, I decided to go and see her.
I grabbed my handbag and made my way to the door.

At aunty Ella's store, I sat with my legs popped up on the sofa.
After giving her a feedback on how the job interview went, she persuaded me.

" Lola, I know its not easy, especially after several job interviews, but please, try to cheer up "
I nodeded with a faint smile.
"Let me send one of my staffs to get us lunch" she suggested.
I shook my head.
" No aunty Ella, I just do not have the appetite to eat. "
"Ok, at least you will take some juice."
Without waiting for my response, she proceeded to the fridge and brought out a bottle of juice with two cups.
As we drank on , she began to show me some new arrivals in her store. Just when I was engrossed by the sight of the beautiful goods, a call came in on my phone . I checked the caller it was Tutu.

" Hello Tutu !"

She began to whine.
"Lola where are you now, have been at home waiting for you"

" Really ? " I chuckled
" Tutu you always left me alone in that house for days and I have never complained, you have only stayed for few minutes........"
Tutu interupted.
" You know I always miss you more, just come back already."
"Alright, I'll join you soon." I hung up.
Soon enough, Aunty Ella saw me off, then I picked a cab and headed home.

A shopping bag was lying on the rug. Tutu handed over to me the accessories she got for me, which I barely checked.
I have turned down her gifts about couple of times, which she really felt bad about, so to avoid unnecessary misunderstanding, I always accepted whatever gift she bought for me.
" So, how was the interview? " she asked.
" I did my best, just hope it doesn't end up like every others. " I spoke reluctantly.
" C'mon Lola, I know its not easy, but just try to be positive. "
I nodded slightly, then began to check through the nice accessories.

THE GIANT SUPERMALL is a very expensive one, where items are costlier than other supermarkets around.
I watched Tutu checked through some skin products and explained to me the differences between the original and the imitation products.

Suddenly she caught her breath.
" Oh my God ! "
" What is it? " I asked curiously.
She whispered to me
" look that way " pointing carefully to a particular direction.
I turned to look, but still couldn't understand her.
"I can't see anything. " I responded.
She whispered again. " That guy on white shirt. "
" Yes, I can see him, ...........so what? "
" Don't you know him? "
I shook my head. " I don't know him. "
Tutu spoke with a lower tone. " That's Dapo - Davies, a very famous multimillionaire business magnate."
She paused a moment. " Do you remember that magazine I bought of recent? "
I nodded. " Yes I do. "
" That's the guy that made the cover page. "
I took a proper look at him.
" oh, that's true. " I admitted. " Anyways, that's not why we are here. "
I spoke dismissively.
As we were approaching the counter, a male voice interrupted us from behind.

" I just knew this was Tutu. " He said.

We both turned around to see who the intruder was.
Tutu's face lit up with excitement. " Kelvin ! "she exclaimed. "

They hugged each other as good friends would do.

She proceeded. " So surprised to see you, you came to shop ? "
" Not really, I only accompanied my boss down here. "
"That reminds me, Michael told me that you no longer work with the insurance company. "
Kelvin nodded. " That's true, I now work with Dap - Davy's Groups.
" That should be Dapo Davies' company ? " Tutu asked.
" Yeah , you are right. "
"Is he the one you came with? " He nodded again.
" I thought as much, that i saw someone who looked so much like him some where around there. "
In a second Tutu paused. " oh, sorry meet my friend Lola. Lola, this is Kelvin, a friend of mine. "
Kelvin and i exchanged pleasantries .

Gently, kelvin tapped Tutu at the back . " Please I wouldn't want to keep my boss waiting, I only excused myself for few minutes, let's talk some other times. "
She nodded approvingly. " I understand. "
" Alright ladies take care " As he turned to leave, he paused, then asked.
" What about Michael, does he still pay you well? "
Tutu smiled wryly. " He is still a very nice man. " she responded.

That moment, I managed to hold my breath. I knew Micheal was Tutu's sugar Daddy, but how come he knew about the whole thing?
The question was at the tip of my tongue.
Kelvin waved us, then left in a hurry. I looked at Tutu with a keen eye.
" He just asked if Michael still pays you, he knows about your sugar daddy? "
she sighed. " Ok, he does, but we can't talk about that here. " she dragged my hand .
We made our way to the counter. Just in few minutes, Kelvin came back to us again.
He spoke quietly . " Ladies, my boss offered to pay for your items. " without waiting for our response, he passed a debit card to the cashier. " Am paying for their items. " He murmured.

Tutu and I stared at each other, then she turned to kelvin, picking her words. " Kelvin......hope your boss won't think that we love free gifts, I mean do you think I should accept this? "
He cuts in.
" Yes you should accept, because you never begged him for it, besides gifts shouldn't be rejected. "

After the payment, the cashier returned his debit card to him.
Tutu requested.
" Ok, then let's say thank you to him. ".
Kelvin shrugged slightly, implying that, you are free if you want to.
As kelvin walked away, Tutu grabbed my hand to follow her, but I restrained.

" C'mon Lola let's go and say thank you. " Tutu urged.
While i shot back.
" He paid for you not me, because I didn't buy anything, you did. "
She quickly hung her bag across my shoulder then walked very fast to catch up with kelvin.
I picked up her bag as it fell down from my shoulder, while I waited for her.

A while after we have returned from the mall, Tutu lay on the fluffy rug, while I sat on the sofa. We both focused on the TV in silence as we watched the run way show.
Tutu broke the silence. " Lola, am supposed to be excited that I met a celebrity today, but trust me, am not. "
" How do you mean? " I asked.

" This Dapo-Davies appeared so proud to me, you need to see how unfriendly his face was. "
" he didn't respond to you when you approached him? " I asked.
Tutu spoke reluctantly.
" hmmmmm..................... he responded, but the look on his face wasn't welcoming. "
" Thank goodness I didn't follow you. " I replied.
Tutu murmured. " Na wa for some rich people sha."

It was about 6.30pm that same day, I sat with Tutu in the kitchen as she was doing the dishes.
Soon, a call came in on Tutu's phone. " Help me check who the caller is. " She said.
I quickly reached for the phone.
"The name is kelvin. "
"Oh, my hands are engaged, help me pick the call and place it on speaker. " I did as she said.

The very masculine voice came through the phone.
" Hello Tutu! ". Tutu replied as she continued with her dishes. " Hi kelvin! "
He proceeded . " Actually, I told my boss couple of things about you, he would like you to send him a good looking lady who can keep his company. Like....... spend the night with him. "

Tutu was caught unaware, she went silent for a while. then she spoke hastily.
" oh sure, I can quickly reach Sharon to do that. "

" No no no, I think he is specific about what he wants. " kelvin said.
" How do you mean? " Tutu asked.
" He said he wants the lady you were together at the mall. "
There was startled silence before she spoke.
" You mean Lola? "
" Yes, Dapo Davies wants Lola, I mean just to keep his company through the night. "
Immediately a disgust look settled on my face.
Tutu responded softly. " Am sorry Lola doesn't do stuffs like that. "
He paused for a second.
" She doesn't do stuffs like that? but she is your friend ."
" Yes she is my friend, but.......
He didn't allow her to finish her sentence, he quipped in.
" You know what Tutu, you can talk to her, just try to do something. " He pressed .
And in case you are able to convince her, then I would be expecting your call. "

" Huuuhhh.... " Tutu let out a sigh of frustration.
" Alright. " she disconnected the call.
She could read it on my face that I was displeased by the phone conversation.
I stood up and left the kitchen, immediately she came after me, and tried to explain things.
" Lola, why frowning so much at me? "
I interjected.
" This is so disgusting, how on earth would he just request that you should send me down to him.............. to spend the night, like am a Harlow or something ? "

Tutu cuts in
" Am just as surprised as you Are. "
I gave her a questioning look.
" Come of it Lola, you are not insinuating that I told him something behind you, no.........no, I won't do such thing, besides you heard the conversation and my response to him. "
Still looking slightly upset, I murmured.
" I heard that though. "
Tutu sighed.
" Thank goodness you did. "
She tried to tickle me, while I held her hands.
We both trooped out of the bedroom.

I was woken by the buzzing sound of my phone. I couldn't but wonder who it was at such early hour of the morning, I reached for my phone and realised it was Marian my younger sister. She was a year 2 student at the Uni.
I was always very relaxed each time she is back from school, because she was always very helpful in guiding David ( my younger brother), and also to take good care of mum, since mum wasn't very strong.
I lost my dad in a ghastly accident about four years ago, alongside my mum was also involved, the outcome of the accident, was the reason why my mum wasn't very fit. Why could she be calling me this early ?
I quickly thought .
" Hello Marian "
" Aunty Lola, good morning. " Her voice sounding so low.
Immediately, I felt very nervous.
" Are you alright? " I asked.
" Yes am fine. "
" But you don't sound fine. " She paused for a moment before speaking. " Actually mum is in the hospital. "
I jerked up and sat upright on the bed.
" What happened to her ?"
" She was admitted in the hospital two days ago......
" Oh my God, did you just say two days ago.............why didn't you inform me before now, how could you keep such thing away from me ?"
She tried to explain " Aunty Lola, you know how mummy handles things, she insisted that, I should only tell you when she gets better, she didn't want you to get scared, though she is better now. She added.

" Marian are you sure? " I asked, still feeling nervous.
" Yes she is, the doctor even said she would be discharged today, but first we need to settle our bills. "
" So, how much is the bill ? "I asked.
" About Eighteen thousand naira. " she said.
I sighed lightly. " OK, i will see how I can send it to you. "
" Alright, but.......there is a problem. "
she said in a sober voice.
" Marian, what is it ? "

" The doctor said one of the test she carried out, indicated that she has a medical condition that requires a surgery. "
" Surgery ? " I exclaimed shrilly.
Immediately, I became very weak and speechless.
" Aunty Lola are you there ? " Marian asked.
" Yes, yes sure am here with you. "
Marian continued " Though, the doctor said her condition is not severe presently, but he advised us not to prolong the surgery as soon as we get the money. "
" So how much are we looking up to ? "
" He said about one hundred and fifty thousand naira."

" One hundred and fifty thousand naira ? " I asked again
" Yes. " she replied.

I tried to hide my fear and mood so that Marian does not break down.
I spoke gently.
" Ok, I' ll see how I can gather that, but, first thing this morning, I will send the present hospital bill to you. "
" Alright " she mumured.
I hung up.

I let out a sigh of frustration. Tutu who had already woken , asked me curiously.
" Who is in the hospital ? "
" My mum. "
I replied, then I explained everything to her. At that moment tears were trickling down my face, Tutu moves closer and pacified me.
" Lola please don't cry. "
I tried to hold back my tears as I spoke.
" Tutu why won't I cry ? I lost my Dad in an auto crash, because of this same accident, my mum hasn't been fit to resume to her Catering job.
The few millions daddy left in his bank account, is what we have all been living on."
I became calm suddenly, and in a controlled voice, I pressed on.

" Tutu, have been so worried lately because the account is almost empty. "

Emphasising on my words
" Do you now see reason with me, why have been so desperate about getting a job. "

Tutu put her hand around my neck.
" Lola, I can imagine how you feel, but we still have to be grateful to God that her condition isn't yet severe according to the doctor. "
she continued.
" The most important thing right now is to get the money for the surgery. "
I interrupted.
" Tutu, where do I get such money for Christ sake, when am yet to get a job. "
I brought my head down in deep thought, while Tutu stared in silence.

I was speaking on the phone to Marian, when Tutu who had been out for a while came in. She dropped her bag, sat next to me and waited for me to finish with the conversation.

" Is that Marian ? " she asked. I nodded.
She cleared her throat.
" I actually went to see aunty Ella concerning the surgery issue." Tutu said and then continued.
" though I would have really loved to do beyond this but, Lola you are quite aware that we just renewed the rent................all I could afford right now is just twenty thousand naira, while Aunty Ella added thirty thousand from her purse. "
she brought out the wad of money from her bag.
She continued again. " Lola, I know this is quite small, but........

I cut in.
" C'mon Tutu, you need not to explain things further, you have always given me your best., thanks all the same. "
" Am glad you understand. " she murmured dropping the money on the table.

" Lola, I think the most important thing right now is to see how to complete the money........ That reminds me, Aunty Ella would like to see you urgently. " she added

" Definitely I would have to see her too, at least to appreciate her kind gesture. "
I got to my feet and prepared to leave.

At aunty Ella's store, i shifted in the chair staring at Aunty Ella surprisingly, and scarcely believing what I was hearing. She paused for a moment, staring back at me, then she continued.

" Lola don't see me as a bad influence, you know that on a good day, I would never advice you to do such, but.........with the situation on ground, I think you should give it a second thought. "

Still staring at her in surprise, after a moment, I managed to speak. Choosing my word carefully.

" Aunty Ella ?......... Where are all theses coming from ? You mean Tutu actually suggested that I should go and open my legs for a total stranger...... Dapo - Davies or whatever he is been called, and you are actually supporting that. "

She took a deep breath and leaned closer to me.
" Lola don't view things from that direction, am only concerned about your mum's health, delaying her treatment could pose a serous danger to her health, even her life. "

With a very serious expression on her face, she asked. " Do you want to loose your mum ? "
I swung my head back, staring blankly.

Aunty Ella pressed.
" Lola you can't afford to loose your mum now, because you still need her to stand by you and your siblings. "

At that moment, tears began to run down my face, while I wiped with the back of my hand.
For few seconds we were both in silence.
I put myself together, then stood up gently to leave, Aunty Ella got to her feet and held my hand softly.
" Lola.......talk to me. "
" Aunty Ella, I just want to be alone. " I said in a voice that one could hardly hear. I made my way to the door while she stared at me worriedly.

In no time, I was already in a cab heading home. All manners of thought jostled for attention in my mind. Suddenly the sound of my phone interrupted my thought, reluctantly I reached for it in my bag. Seeing that it was my mum, I cleared my throat and quickly picked my call.
" Hello mummy "
Addressing me in her usual manner. " TEMILOLA, how are you my daughter ? "
I felt happy to hear from her, but at the same time, I was heartbroken. Apparently from her voice, one could easily tell that she was weak.
" But I thought Marian said that you are better now mum ? "
I voiced out instantly, as I couldn't hide my feelings.
" Temilola I am. See, I don't want you to get worried, I believe the good lord will keep me for everyone of you "
I muttered " Amen "
" Mummy, am planning to come and see you very soon, I just want to put couple of things in order before travelling "
" That's ok by me, i' ll be expecting you. besides I have really missed you. " her voice trailed off.
I feigned a smile.
"missed you too mummy, I ' ll give you a call when I get home, am actually in a cab right now. "
" Ok dear " she responded, then I hung up.
My mum was s very loving mother, who cared intensely about her children, even before she lost her husband, she was quite closer to us than our Dad. I sighed deeply.
The weakness in the sound of her voice had suddenly struck an acute fear into me.
Unconsciously, I shut my eyes and imagined............. What if something bad happens to her ? What if she dies…............. I snapped out of my thoughts at once. And very quickly, i beckoned to the driver.
" Pls just drop me anywhere around here "
He tried to notify me.
" But, we have not..........."
I quickly interjected.
" Sorry, I need to attend to something very urgently. " I said.
As he cleared to park the car properly, I brought out some money and paid him.
Apparently he was listening to my conversation.
" Aunty sorry o. " he said as he collected the money.
I alighted from the taxi, then I made my way back to aunty Ella's store.

Aunty Ella sat directly opposite me, with just few inches away. Our eyes were fixed on each other, and her look was questioning.
" Lola, are you sure about this ? Because you look quite uncertain. "
I nodded slightly.
" Look dear, " she proceeded. " I don't want you to feel like am forcing you to yield to any sexual advances, but I just feel it's an opportunity for you to get the needed money, which is also urgent. "
I nodded again without saying a word.
" Lola are you sure ? " she pressed.
" Aunty Ella am sure,...... Have made up my mind, i'll go. "

She took hold of my hand and tried to put me at ease.
" Trust me, you would be fine. "
She took her phone, and made a call through to Tutu, informing her about my decision.
After the conversation, she turned to me and spoke.
" Lola, very importantly, whatever arrangement Tutu makes on how you would be meeting the guy, please ensure to let me know about it, I just want to ensure that you are fine. "
" Yes I will " I almost felt that I was a toddler at that point.
" More also, she added. " there are couple of things you should know, when embarking on a trip like this, so ensure you see me before you go. "
I nodded briefly.
She held me very closely and hugged me.
" Lola, promise me when you get home you' ll take a good nap, you are looking really stressed up. "
I shrugged slightly. " I' ll try to "
Somehow, I found an immense relief in her last few words.

I resigned myself to my fate, and decided to brood over nothing, which really helped me to sleep fairly well all through the night.
I got down from the bed and stretched my body.
A white note placed on the table caught my eye, I picked it up and it read

" l stepped out, would be back shortly.
I noticed you were having a good
sleep, So I didn't want to disturb U."


" I indeed slept deeply, for me not to know when Tutu stepped out. "

After brushing my teeth, I settled for a glass of fruit juice. Off course I never gave up on job haunting, I settled before my laptop and began to check through my email box.

Soon enough, Tutu was standing right before me in the living room, she held a fitted red coloured dress, urging me to come and wear it.
" Am sure it will be so nice on you, come and try it on. "
I kept still looking at her with unreadable expression on my face.
Again, she brought out a sheer babydoll nightwear, glazing at it adoringly, she said.
" He would definitely love this on you. "
" Oh please. " I shot back, looking quite displeased

Tutu was astounded by my sudden reaction.
" Lola did I do something wrong ? " she asked.
I looked away and didn't reply.

" Lola, don't make me feel bad, did I say something wrong ? " she sounded worried.
I spoke annoyingly.
" Tutu, that statement you made shows you are not sensitive to my feelings. "

Looking emotional, Tutu dropped the clothes and sat next to me.
I went on.
" obviously you know why I agreed to go for an immoral trip like this, Tutu you know it's because I am left with no other option. " My voice sounding remorseful.

" Lola I didn't mean it that way, but all thesame, am sorry.
I nodded briefly. " It's ok. "

A concerned expression settled on my face.
" Tutu, i really don't get this.we both knows that you are quite pressed on cash, why do you have to go out of your way to buy all these ? To me, it is like we are trying to impress this guy.

Tutu gave me a questioning look.
I proceeded.
" Isn't the same guy you condemned few days ago, you said he was not welcoming and appeared so proud. Gosh................. I don't like him already.

" Lola I think you should just ignore his character, and focused on what you need. "
" Exactly what I planned to do " I replied.
She adjusted on the sofa, and made a quick start.

" Lola, now let's talk about the real business. Kelvin and I have spoken on phone, he already sent me the hotel address. Dapo - Davies would be expecting you by 8.00.pm. So my plan is that, we will leave here by 7.00 pm.

" We ? " I asked curiously

" Yes we, you and I. Lola I would accompany you down to the hotel, the moment am sure you are in safe hands, then I' ll take my leave.
I gave a little nod of acknowledgement.
" Thank you Tutu. " I said, feeling kind of relieved.

I decided to discuss with aunty Ella on phone, instead of going down to see her. That might take more time, I quickly thought out.
I reached for my phone at once, and quickly made a call through to her. I updated her on the arrangements, which she was quite comfortable with.
Gradually, as the time approaches, the anxiety in me increased.

Later in the evening, Tutu and I were saeted at the hotel reception, waiting for kelvin. As we did, I ganced around. The sight of the environments got me captivated so much, that I almost forgot about the anxiety in me.
The hotel vicinity was simply breath-taking.
Within minutes, kelvin joined us, then ushered us in to an executive lounge.

Kelvin beckoned to us. " Ladies pls make yourselves comfortable ."
He excused himself and hurried out of the lounge.
The lounge looked so extravagant with every object in there appearing expensive. There was adequate privacy, it was just Tutu and i in there.

"This hotel is indeed a five star hotel, I heard about it couple of times, but I never knew it was as exotic as this. " Tutu said .

Within minutes, kelvin returned along with a wait - staff pushing a drink trolley. The wait staff welcomed us. He brought out a bottle of red wine, placed it on the table, then a medium tray containing grilled chicken.
Kelvin took the wine, and popped the cork, placing it on the table. He spoke briefly. " Ladies, am sorry about this..........actually my boss has an urgent meeting with some clients from China, so right now, he is very busy, but am sure he will join you soon.

Tutu and I nodded almost in unison.
Kelvin turned to Tutu.
" Tutu seeing you today again, I would have really loved to have a good and long talk with you. but..........right now. I have very urgent stuff to attend to."
Tutu nodded .
" I totally understand, and thanks for all these. " Pointing to the table.

He waved his hand aside. "
"that's nothing............And if you need anything, do give me a call. "
he walked hurriedly towards the door.

I took a deep breath. " Are you ok ? " Tutu asked.
" I am. " I muttered.
We both drank on, but I couldn't eat the chicken because I was edgy.

About twenty minutes later, Tutu who got carried away by the TV, seemed not to be bothered about the time.
Looking worried already, I called.
" Tutu. "
She startled, and turned to me, looking questioningly.
" Don't you think its getting late, I mean............am not comfortable with you staying out late.
Tutu glanced through her watch and sighed.

Deep down, I really wished Tutu could still stay behind, but I thought about her safety going back home.
" I think you should start leaving, so that you can get home on time. "

She hissed slightly, making several attempts to call Kelvin on phone. But she couldn't reach him.
After about another few minutes, I insisted that she had to leave.

Reluctantly, Tutu got to her feet, I saw her off outside the reception, then I settled back at the lounge.
Somewhat like the anxiety in me just got worsened by the situation. At that point, it dawned on me that I was all alone.
" I haven't even seen him at all. " I mumbled looking so frustrated.
I reached for my phone and got myself busy with it. Soon I got engrossed by some games.

Just in a moment, I heard the door gently opened, I briefly raised my head. Unexpectedly, a young man about six feet plus appeared before me, he was tall and well built. From his physical appearance, you could tell that he was a gym freak.

Immediately, I could remember his face. I became extremely edgy, but I tried to put myself in check.
He walked confidently towards me, and as he approached closely, he stretched out one of his hands - As if to say, come and say hello to me.

I rose to my feet, while he held me fairly close to himself. I caught a whiff of his perfume.........
" GOODNESS " it was so fresh and pleasant.
He spoke with a husky voice.
" Lola, Right ? "
Responding very quietly. " Yes, am Lola. "

" And I am Dapo - Davies, CEO Dap -Davies groups.
Our eyes met, and I realised he was staring at me intensely, I looked away instantly as I was unable to hold his gaze.
I could say Tutu was right, he kept a straight face, his face didn't look smiley at all, but despite, I must say he was a good looking guy.

" Am so sorry to have kept you waiting. "
he went further
" Am having an official meeting with my business partners from China, but something urgently came up, so.......... am likely to take more time, please do bare with me. "
I nodded

Then he gestured. " let me take you to the room so that you can feel relaxed.
His politeness took me by surprise.
I picked my bag and followed him.

We both stepped into the elevator, in few minutes we arrived at his suite.

" Make yourself comfortable. "
he turned the Ac on, and then the TV.
" I will be going back to the meeting, just in case you need any thing, you call the room service.
I nodded.
He opened a briefcase, brought out something like documents, then he left the room.

At that time, the anxiety in me had subsided.
I caught a glimpse of the suite, the couches in white were encrusted with gold, coupled with the spring signatory bed, they were classic.
I proceeded to the En suite bathroom. From the shower seat, to the soap dispenser,hand dryer, Tp dispenser, towel hooks etc everything were looking modern.
The whole suite was a perfect definition of luxurious.

I settled in one of the couch, then the thought quickly crossed my mind to verify if Tutu has gotten home. Instantly I took my phone and we chatted for a while.
Afterwards, I decided to freshen up, then slid into my nightwear. It was about 12.15 am, and yet he wasn't back. I thought of chatting with Tutu again but, I knew she would be fast asleep by then.

For me at that point, sleeping was quite impossible, how I really wanted the night to quickly pass by.
I sat on the bed leaning my back on the headboard, different thoughts crossed my mind. Vividly, I remembered how Aunty Ella sounded it to my ears, never to have unprotected sex, no matter the amount he offers to give me. I took a deep breath.

The time was about few minutes passed 2.00am,
Of course when it comes to sleep, you can't trick mother nature, before I knew it, I started dozing off.
Abruptly, I woke up and rubbed my hand across my face, then the temperature of the room was already cold. And finally, I slithered down and pulled the duvet around me.

About twenty minutes later, I heard the sound of the door, then I opened my eyes and saw Dapo came in.
He dropped his phones on the table and threw himself on the couch. I became still and watched him from the bed where I was lying. I guess he believed I was fast asleep.

A call came through one of his phones, he picked up and spoke with a commanding tone.
" Kelvin, whatever appointment anyone has with me today, please reschedule, right now am exhausted, OK ? "
He pushed himself up from the couch at once, and in a short while, he had freshened up.

He settled on the bed, and pulled the duvet around himself. At that point, I was expecting to feel a tap on my body but, surprisingly he turned his back to me.
I was dumbfounded for minutes minutes.
Quickly reminding myself why I came around, I summoned courage, then I tapped him from behind.

I summoned courage, then I tapped him from behind.
He turned to me
Sounding like i didn't know what to say, I spoke very quietly.
" Sorry........... am.........not sleeping. "
With a serious expression on his face, he asked.
" why ? you should be sleeping by now. "

Looking quite confused, I muttered
" but I came here on a purpose. "
He smiled faintly. That minute, I felt kind of embarrassed.
Then he nodded swiftly.
" I get that. " he said with his face looking very sleepy.
" Sorry, have been out all day, and quite very busy too. Right now I have a headache, and what I need is a good sleep. "
I bit my lips staring at him.
" Let's do it this way..........reschedule to meet another time, though...........I'll pay your money now, so it doesn't look like I wasted your time. But...............you will have to come back. "

Gosh ! an upfront payment or what ? And I would have to pass through another phase of anxiety againnnnnnn.........I thought.

He reached for his phone, and punched in my details. With a very deep voice he murmured.
" You should get the alert soon. "
He slid back into the duvet.
At that moment, I had a mixed feelings. I was bothered that I would have to come back again, but at the other way round, he has done the most important.

The time was close to 4.00am. I couldn't even get a wink of sleep. Suddenly, notification message came in on my phone, he has credited my account with A hundred thousand Naira.
A surprise look settled on my face, I turned to catch a glimpse of him, obviously he was fast asleep.
I waited impatiently for the dawn to break.

At about 6.30am, I was all dressed up to leave.
He sat up on the bed, still looking sleepy while he punched my digits in his phone.

" My schedules in the next couple of days are quite tight, so let's meet by next week, better still I will give you a call. "
He reached for his wallet and brought out a hundred dollar bill.
" For your transport, i' ll see you again. "
Before I could say thank you, he threw himself back to bed.
Quietly I mentioned. " Thank you. "
He half waved his hand without speaking.
I took my bag, and left the suite.

He half waved his hand, without speaking, I took my bag and left the suite.

Tutu was burning with curiosity, she asked too many questions at a time, i narrated to her all that went down.

" Lola am so happy that the money is complete at once, you already had fifty thousand before now and another hundred thousand from him. "

" Yes, am happy too, but............I now feel indebted to him, how I really wished the whole thing is a done deal already. "
" That won't be a problem. " she said, dismissing my worries.
" So, what's your plan ? She asked me.
" First thing tomorrow, I intend travelling home to see my mum. "
" So soon. " she exclaimed
Tutu, I just thought there is no point delaying, since the money is complete already. "
She nodded.
" that's true though. "
" But, i' ll have to see aunty Ella, and also change the hundred dollars on me. "
" Awwwww.........missing you already. "
" don't worry, I'll be back before you know it. "
Tutu followed me as I made my way to the bedroom.

The time is about 6.50 am in the morning, I was already set to travel home to see my mum.
Tutu helped me with the small travel box, while we stepped out of the gate to get a cab.
In a short while, a cab stopped by, then I hopped in.
" Lola, please give my regards to mum. "
" I will. " she waved at me, as the cab veered off.

After about four hours of a road trip, I was already at home standing by the gate.
After pressing the gate bell, I waited patiently.
In a split second, David came to open the gate. Looking so surprised to see me, I hugged him. Before we could make our way in, Elizabeth alighted from the bike and rushed forward to greet me.
Elizabeth was our domestic help, she always assisted mum whenever Marian was off to school.
David and Elizabeth both helped with my luggage.

Getting into the house, everyone had a share of the junk food I got along the way, while I gave to David the couple of t-shirts I got for him earlier in the month.
Mum and Marian were so excited to see me.

Without wasting so much time, I proceeded to see our family doctor at the hospital since he had suggested that I should see him in regards to mum's surgery.

It was already late in the evening, I sat next to my mum in her room, after everyone had gone to bed.
We both deliberated and agreed on when she would leave for the surgery.
Suddenly she paused, then took a careful look at me. Of course, I was lost at that moment.
" Mum.........why are you staring at me that way ?"
I spoke quietly.
She tapped the seat gently for me to sit closer, which I did.

" Temilola, I want you to be sincere with me, because I have heard a lot of things that some ladies involve themselves in these days.............Temilola, I hope you haven't been lured into all those sugar-daddy of a thing ? "
Immediately, I felt quite uncomfortable, but I quickly dismissed it.
" Mum, you already know that the answer to that is NO. " after a while we both went to bed.

Mum got discharged from the hospital four days after her surgery, since she was recuperating very quickly.

We were both seated in the living room one evening, as I tried to make some fruits for her, suddenly a message popped in on my phone. Seeing that it was Dapo - Davie's message, I quickly went through it. And the message read

Hoping to see you this weekend
What about that ?

I was close to replying him that I wasn't around, but I changed my mind so he won't start to think otherwise, not after paying me some money.
So , I decided to change my plans of spending more time with my mum.
Moreover, she was already recovering very quickly.
After deciding, I quickly replied him.

When ?
What time ? And
Where ?

8.00pm and
Same venue.
He replied.

I notified everyone a day before I travelled, of course they all expressed how much they would miss me, while I promised that in no time, I would come home again to check on mum.
The night before I travelled, mum and I talked at length, and definitely she prayed for me.
The next morning, I decided to take Tutu by surprise. I didn't inform her that I was already on my way.

After about four hours of a road trip, l was already standing right in front of our apartment, I opened the door gently and as I came in Tutu jumped up and screamed with joy. She was overly excited to see me.
I dropped my bag, then settled on the sofa.
" Lola, but you told me you would be coming by next week. " Tutu asked
"Yeah, that's true but, I got a message from Dapo - Davies, so I really don't want to give him excuse, so he won't start thinking that am avoiding him after collecting his money. "
Tutu nodded approvingly. " You are right though. "
" So how is your mum ? "
" Trust me, the surgery was super successful, and she is now very better . "
" Wow ! that's a good news. "
Tutu brought out the apples I bought on my way down, she washed and settled for some, while she gave me some gist.

Its friday evening, I was supposed to meet with Dapo - Davies by 8.00 pm. As at 8.30pm, I was still stuck in a traffic.
This time, Tutu didn't follow me because, we both agreed that it won't be necessary.

At 9.15pm, I was already at the reception, without wasting much time I was quickly directed to his suite. I used the elevator and in few minutes, I was standing in front of Dapo.
I made my way in, as he opened the door .

" Am sorry, I was stuck in traffic . "
He nodded swiftly. " It's ok, I thought as much. "
Already, my body was kind of sticky due to the stress, so I changed into a bathrobe so that I can take a shower.
" Will you like to take anything ? " he asked.
Feeling quite tired , I responded
" lightly cold juice will do. "
I dashed into the bathroom. After taking my bath, I changed to my night wear.
I settled for my drink, which really made me feel relaxed.

Thereafter, I climbed the bed, and pulled the duvet around me, at this time he was busy with his phone.
Somehow, i became uptight, then I felt slightly nervous again.

Suddenly, he switched off his phone and turned, gazing intensely at me, I couldn't read his expression, and that got me more nervous.
I tried to get myself relaxed, but his unsmiling face wasn't helping.
He moved closer to me, and kissed me slightly on the lips, he moved down and buried his face on my neck sniffing me very gently.
He raised his head and kissed me on the lips, he kissed me gently and then deeply.
He wrapped his arm around me and held me tightly, still kissing me so passionately, he fumbled with my night wear, as he attempted to slip my night wear off my body, I cringed.

He stopped what he was doing, and gazed at me carefully, bringing his face very close to mine.
then I whispered to his ears.
" please.......can......you ......... switch off the light. "
He didn't object, rather he simply stretched his hand around the headboard and switched off the light, then he turned on the side lamb, so we won't be in total darkness.

He took off his night T-shirt, and pulled me so closely that I could feel his heart hammering against my chest. He brought his mouth down to my lips again and began to kiss me so passionately, finally he slipped my cloth off me.
I said a little prayer inside of me " God let him never ask for a oral. " Gosh ! Am so going to mess up.............

It was almost thirty minutes of making out, then I began to feel uncomfortable because my legs were already weak.

He stopped at once, then got himself protected. he lifted himself onto me and kissed me again. He tried to proceed Suddenly, I cringed and held the duvet tightly, he paused and tried to put me at ease. Again he tried to have his way, this time I shut my eyes and held my breath.
Distinctively baffled, he finally came down. Staring at me so closely, I could feel his breath, we held our gaze in silence. Gently with a very deep tone, he broke the silence.
" Lola, are you still a virgin ? " I fumbled with the duvet around me,I was speechless.
