Risha sat in front with her father while Miracle busied herself with one of the books she bought for her at the back seat.Their mother has not made peace with their father yet so she deem it right to stay back.Jatau ignited the old blue Camry and they took off.
" Where are we going to?" Risha looked at her father.
"I don't know yet" He responded without looking off the road.
She smiled as it reminded her of Kelvin.After bringing her home that night they never spoke till date,it's been one week and exactly two days of fighting the urge to call or chat him up.She is a girl,he should do the chasing.
Her phone beeped.A notification,she forgot to switch off her data after sending the picture to Miranda.
"Hello swindler.Been busy and you never cared to check on me" A WhatsApp message from Kelvin reads.
She covered her mouth and smiled before replying.
"Hey brute.Who said it's a girls duty to check on a guy?" She attached a laughing emoji and clicked send.
Immediately he responded with tons of laughing emojis.
"Don't tell me you are one of the foremothers out there still sticking to old principles"
She snorted short laughs.
"I'll kill you when I see you"
" I can't wait to have your delicate hands on me" He smiled.
"Is that Kelvin?" Her father's husky but vibrant voice questioned and she looked up.
"How'd you know" It came out before she could stop it "Sorry Sir,I mean Yes "
"Are you with your earpiece?"
"Yes Sir" She wondered what he needed an earpiece for as she rummage the caramel bag on her laps.
"Here it is"
"Give it to Miracle.She should listen to some music"
"I'm fine Dad.It will distract me" Miracle didn't look away from her book.
"I need to talk to your sister.Adult talk"
Risha only smiled at her father's intended smartness which she finds quite immature.But what Adult talk is he talking about?
"Trust me Dad.I'm too engross to pay attention" Miracle assured her father and he gave in.
He turned to Risha who looked away and furrowed her forehead.
"You said Kelvin is your friend?"
"Boyfriend or what?"
"Boyfriend?" He emphasied.
"Say it with you mouth and stop trying to confuse me!" He almost yelled.
"Boyfriend" She muttered and Miracle giggles.
"Give that earpiece and phone to her"
"But Dad.." Miracle attempted protesting.
"My friend take it from your sister!"
"Yes Sir" She recieved the earpiece with a gloomy face.
Jatau stares in into the mirror "Now loosen that face!" He ordered and she comply "That's better"
"Back to you" He said to Risha "How did you get to know Kelvin?"
No! She will not discuss boys with her father.And Kelvin,what on earth was she thinking when she agreed to being his girlfriend,now he will comfirm she is one of those desperate girls swooning around him.Nothing on earth will make him think otherwise.What a mess!
"I..I met him at the bank" She stuttered,she'll be be dead if her father discovers the truth.
"Are you telling me the truth?"
"Yes Dad" She nods.
"He works there or a customer?"
"He works there"
Another lie,she doesn't even know what he does for a living.It will be her first question when they meet next.
"I hope you aren't one of those fortune hunters?" He swerve the car to the right "Because most bankers aren't as rich as their profession sound"
Miracle giggles again.
"Are you not suppose to be listening to music?" Jatau came to halt at Chicken Republic Bannex.
"I tuned down the volume" She muttered.
"You will tell me why you did that when we get home"
"I'm sorry Dad.I won't do it again"
He ignored her and spoke to Risha.
"Invite Kelvin this weekend"
"Are you not going back to work?"
"Thinking of gallivanting again?"
"No..." She tucks her hair behind her ear "I just feel it's too early for that.We may scare him away"
"The earlier the better my dear.I need to know who you are dealing with because I won't be there to console you when your heart gets blended"
"Blended!" Miracle chuckles "Dad don't you think it's abit exaggerated?"
"I think you should stop meddling and worry about the punishment that awaits you"
Miracle slumps back into her seat.
"I'll teach you the besic things you need to know about boys when we get home.And also get prepared for a serious scolding,you never told me you were dating and we agreed I'll be the first to know.But for now let's enjoy!" He opened the car door and stepped out as she watched him.
If only he could act like a Nigerian when it comes to issues like this.She still finds it hard to understand why he hasn't let go of these foriegn traits even though he returned to Nigeria almost two decades ago.And it annoys her more knowing the only african thing he choose to adapt since his return is the food and constant use of the rod,maybe they mever left him at all.

Tory's spike heels produced a clattering sound as she pace the room,her right hand clenched into a fist that and pounded gently on the left palm.Miranda sat in the most careful manner on a sleek lemon Lounger awaiting Tory's outburst.Sonia pulls in from behind.
"Hello ladies" She greeted and flopped beside Miranda.
"You came just in time" Tory dipped her hands in her bright green trousers' pockets.
Sonia looked from a fretted Miranda to a fuming Tory.
"Everything okay? Miranda are you alright?"
"You can't fucking ask if she is okay!" Tory belowed and they jerked "The bitch ruined my first move"
Miranda erected to her feet "You don't ever call me that!" She spoke with an accent that only dawned on her seconds after.
"Oh yeah?" Tory advanced towards her.
Sonia tugged one of Miranda's hand from the back to sit her down but it was late as Tory hit her hard on the face.
"As long as you work for me you don't talk back" Tory smile superciliously at the fear the slap ignited in Miranda.
Sonia steps inbetween them.
"That's enough Tory.I think you went overboard"
"Are you talking to me? " Tory's eyes darkened "I pay her to work for me not to fumble! She was plainly asking her friend for detials about what she is wearing and where she will be going.And Risha was smart enough to notice"
Sonia sighed and pulled Miranda to sit.
"Mimi in jobs like this one must put their brain in total use"
"Exactly!" Tory chipped in.
"And what if I don't want to use my brain! What if say I'm quitting!" Miranda flared up in tears.
"Ofcourse you can't sweety" Tory folded her arms smiling "
Miranda turned to Sonia for hint.
Sonia nodded repeatedly.
"You can't quit.She has paid you already"
"But I haven't spent it all.I will refund it"
"We don't refund" She said sadly
"But I'm no more interested! I can't betray Risha" She spoke desperately,hoping there is a way out.
Tory gave a snort "You should have thought of that before diving in"
Miranda straightened to her full height.
"I'm not scared of you Tory,you can't force me into what I don't want to do" She picked her bag and dashed out.
She scoffs "You obviously don't know who you are messing with"
