'Nope. I called your line when I came. It was ringing without response.'

I picked my phone from a stool. 'Sorry about that. See, I left it behind.'

Now, I was quick to discover something new about the way she was dressed. Her mini skirt and spaghetti top made her to be very sexy and alluring. Christy was certainly a beautiful girl, but should I still go on with the relationship?

Now that Faith and I had started something that could lead to settling down to a marital life, was it not time for me to stop further affairs with Christy?

'Hey, you seem to be lost in thoughts,' she observed. 'Am I welcome or not?'

I tried a grin. 'Of course, you are welcome. What can I get you?'

'Anything.' It was an echo of the answer Faith had given me. I grinned and stood up. For the second time within two hours, I would be buying snacks and drinks for a lady.

I bought the same things I had bought for Faith for Christy.

'So, how have you been finding the weekend?' she asked.

'Well, not so bad.' I thought of telling her about Faith. Would it be expedient for me to tell her or not?

'I've been finding the day so drab; that's why I came. I know you'll give me the excitement that I want.'

I sighed and tried a grin.

'Well, are you not taking anything yourself?' she asked.

'Oh, no. I'm okay.'

'That will not be fair if I'm the only one taking this.' She left her seat to where I was sitting, sat on my laps and put the drinks to my lips.

I sipped from it. Her gesture instantly changed my mood. Maybe I should go ahead, eat my cake and have it, I felt. I rubbed my hand on her back. Within a short time, the hand moved to her boobs.

I squeezed and caressed them. One thing led to the other and we were soon naked and making passiuonate love right there in the sitting-room.


* * *


Two days later, on Monday, Faith decided to visit my desk at the staff room. She noticed there were many books, ranging from textbooks on grammar and literature, to dictionaries and encyclopedia on my table.

I was glad to have her around. I offered her the lone chair in front of my desk. We chatted briefly. There was no point in hiding that there was a cozy relationship building up between us.

Things appeared to move in fast pace for the remaining part of that day. I was excited about the developments I was experiencing. During the days of that week, I closed with others, foreclosing the chance of meeting Christy alone. I had come to the conclusion that I just had to stop my relationship with her. I would have to find the way of doing that.

On Wednesday, I was on my way home when Christy called my line.

'Why are you always in a hurry to leave these days?' she demanded. 'Why the hurry?'

I decided I would be very blunt about it. 'I'm sorry, Christy, but we have to suspend our relationship for now.' There was a short pause across the line.

'Is it because of that lady, Faith, that you want to dump me?'

My heart hammered. How did Christy know about Faith? How did she know so soon?

On Wednesday, I was on my way home when Christy called my line.

'Why are you always in a hurry to leave these days?' she demanded. 'You don't even wait behind in the staff-room as you used to do. Why the hurry?'

I decided I would be very blunt about it. 'I'm sorry, Christy, but we have to suspend our relationship for now.' There was a short pause across the
line.

'Is it because of that lady, Faith, that you want to dump me?'

My heart hammered. How did Christy know about Faith? How did she know so soon?

'I don't know what you're saying,' I stuttered.

'Of course you do. See, if you think you can just dump me like that, you are making a big mistake.'

'No one is dumping anyone. The relationship between us is with no strings attached in the first place, in case you've forgotten.'

'We shall see.' With that, Christy cut off the connection.

I sighed. I could take anything from her but what I would not take was a threat from a lady. What did she mean by saying that we would see?
What nonsense was that? Was it not just a fling we had? How could she think that would stop me from going ahead to have a more guaranteed
relationship?

I hissed and tried to dismiss Christy from my mind. When I got home, I decided to take a nap. The time was few minutes after five p.m., and a nap would be good to relax my body.

I lay on the bed only briefly when knocks sounded on my sitting-room door. Now, this was not the best of time for me to be disturbed, I thought gloomily. The knocking persisted, so I had to go and see who the intruder was. I was surprised to find Christy there.

'What? It's you,' I said.

'Yes. We have to talk.'

I was ruffled. 'Talk about what?'

She grimaced. 'Are you going to keep me out or let me enter?'

I sighed and grudginly allowed her to enter the flat. 'You have to make it brief.'

She entered the sitting-room slowly and sat importantly on the sofa. She certainly took her time. Some seconds passed.

'Well?' I said, becoming impatient.

'Well, what?'

'You said we had to discuss. What is it about?'

She still took some seconds before she would utter anything.

'I came to let you know you cannot just break off with me like that.'

'Why not? I didn't really promise you anything, did I?'

She shook her head. 'Promise or not, you cannot break off with me like that.'

Somehow, I felt I had been quite unfeeling, so I decided to take a soft stance. 'Listen , Christy, I know it came a little bit as a surprise to you. I'm
sorry for that. However, I can compesate you. How much will you ask for?'

She looked at me and burst into laughter. Was that funny?

'You can't be serious. How much do you have that you can give me?'

'As long as it is reasonable and within my reach. I'm ready to give you something, Christy, and then we call off everything.'

She shook her head vehemently. 'All I want from you is we should continue our affairs. Go ahead and marry anyone you desire, but you cannot ditch me now. Is that not an easy bargain?'

I was short of words. Was what she was proposing as simple as she made it be? Let us say I agreed with her, what if Faith discovered the affairs?

I was short of words. Was what she was proposing as simple as she made it be? Let us say I agreed with her, what if Faith discovered the affairs?

No, it was better to stop with Christy. 'Give me you your account number and details. I will definitely transfer substantial amount to you.'

She looked angry. 'Are you deaf or something? I said I don't want any money from you. Okay, I will demonstrate what I want.'

With that she stood up and started undressing.

'No, Christy,' I pleaded. 'Let's not do that again. We can still be friend, but let's not do that again.'

She had removed her blouse. Her black bra looked sexy but I tried to imagine I must never be ensnared.

She stopped to stare at me. 'Are you sure of what you're saying, or you are just saying it?'

'Of course, I'm sure about what I'm saying.'

'Really?'

I nodded.

She went on to unstrap the bra. Her jaunty boobs sprang into life. 'Are you sure you don't want these?' she asked.

I sighed and closed my eyes. My mind wavered. Oh God, would I be able to resist this?

Why must I always be a weakling when it came to sexual matters? Why?

When I opened my eyes, she started unzipping her jeans trousers, a wicked smile on her face. Oh Lord, oh, Lord.

'Christy, wait,' I said feebly.

It was as if she did not hear me. She pulled down her pantie as well and stepped out of the trousers and the pant. She was now naked.

Goodness. My heart started beating fast. I closed my eyes again. She came to where I was rooted and touched my right shoulder. It was like receiving electric shock.

'I thought you are a man,' she mocked as she jiggled her body. Her boobs flounced invitingly.

'Christiana ...'

She hushed me by putting three of her her fingers on my lips. Her other hand held my hand and lifted it to her chest. At this point, I lost the the last of the control that I had.

Some minutes later, when the whole lustful act was over, I felt disgusted with her. Now, was this not making someone sucumb to sexual activity willy-nilly? Was this not rape?

'You can't tell me you didn't enjoy it,' she scoffed as she wore her clothes back. I was silent but myriads of thought went through my mind. I imagined Faith coming in that moment. She would never believe I did it under duress. I shook my head. Somehow, I just had to find a way to stop this lustful affairs with Christy.

She seemed satisfied. 'Alright, see you another time.'

I could barely mutter a word as she left my place. Now, see what you have got yourself into, I told myself. Somehow, Faith looked precious. She
looked like the kind of lady a man must not hurt. Doing this dalliance with Christy would no doubt cause a lot of angst. I must stop it. I must not hurt Faith.


* * *


The following morning, I woke up as early as I used to do to start preparing for school. I was always punctual to school as I believed that punctuality is indeed the soul of business. After the morning assembly, I went to my desk to start reading my lesson note in preparation for the first subject that I had. Mrs. Ara entered the staff room and came straight to my desk.

'Good morning, Mr. Aloh.'

'Good morning, madam. How are we this morning?' I greeted jovially.

'Fine. Mrs. Obenbe wants to see you in her office right now.'

I looked surprised. 'Me?'

'Yes.'

I sighed. 'Alright, I'll be coming.'

I wondered why the madam wanted to see me so early. Could it be that the school was invited for another quiz progrqmme? Or could it be a
debate?

I left my table and walked briskly to Mrs. Obenbe's office. I was surprised to find Christy already in the office, looking sober.

'Good morning, madam,' I greeted the woman.

'Good morning.' Her answer was curt and cold. My heart started beating fast.

'Christiana has reported the unfortunate incident that happened yesterday,' Mrs. Obenbe said.

I looked befuddled. 'What unfortunate incident?' I managed to ask.

'She reported that she came to your house so that you can assist her in the external examination she is preparing to write; and all you can do is
to rape her.'

'What!' Now, I was scandalized. 'There's no such thing!'

'Don't you just try to deny it,' Christy said.

I turned to her. 'Deny what? What the hell are you talking about?'

'Was Christiana in your house yesterday evening?' Mrs. Obenbe asked.

'Yes, she was, but ...'

'Did you have sexual intercourse with her?'

I looked like a cornered rabbit. I should have suspected that Christy was on an evil mission. I should have known that she would set me up.

'Answer the question: did you have sexual intercourse with her or not?' Mrs Obenbe queried.

'Yes, but, it was mutual. I did not force her.'

'Answer the question: did you have sexual intercourse with her or not?' Mrs Obenbe queried.

'Yes, but, it was mutual. I did not force her.'

Mrs. Obenbe looked at me in disgust. 'I can't believe that you, of all people will get yourself in a scandal like this. I used to have so much respect
for you. How could you rape her?'

'But I didn't rape her,' I replied in astonishment. I was embarrassed and angry at the same time. How could Christy do this to me? How could she
claim that I raped her?

'You're lucky,' Mrs. Obenbe went on. 'You are lucky that Christiana does not want to formally press charges; if not you will be handed over to the
police. All the same, you know how this school frowns at gross misconduct. You will have to face a disciplinary panel later today. The school
seriously frowns at acts like this. Go back to your desk but don't go to any class. As soon as the Disciplinary Committee is ready to meet, we will
call you.'

I was aghast to say the least. It was unthinkable that I would be charged with rape. It was one crime I had never committed in my life. Now, I was
accused of it. I went back to my desk at the second staff-room. Since Faith was in the other staff-room, she was most likely oblivious of what
was happening. But she would soon know. By the time I faced the committee, everyone would know that I had been charged with a crime.

In the staff-room, while other teachers went for their classes, I sat down and brooded over my circumstance. What would I tell the Disciplinary
Committee? If I admitted that indeed Christy and I had sex, they would conclude that indeed I raped her. But I could not deny that sexual
activity happened between us, could I? Had I not admitted it to Mrs. Obenbe that 'something' happened between us? No way, I could not deny
that.

I thought of Faith. How would she take the whole thing? Would she go ahead with our relationship or would she stop it outright? If the
committee found me guilty as charged, the punishment could be suspension from work or outright dismissal. I crung at the thought. That
outcome certainly would not be palatable.

Few minutes to ten that morning, Mrs. Obenbe once again sent for me. It was time to face the committee. Inside Mrs. Obenbe's office were five
members of staff that constituted the committee. I was like someone facing trial in a magistrate court. Christy too was there.

Mrs. Obenbe opened the proceeding. 'Without wasting time, can you, Christiana, tell us what happened between you and Mr. Sunday Aloh
yesterday?'

Christy cleared her throat and told the committee members how she came to my house to get assistance on some subjects she was preparing to write. According to her, I had offered her a bottle of cold water which she took. Few minutes after she took it, she felt drowsy and slept off.
Several minutes later when she awoke, she discovered that she had been defiled. She was so ashamed that she just went home straight and it was only this morning she had the courage to tell someone.

I shook my head in disbelief.

'Now, Mr. Sunday Aloh, what can you say to this?' Mrs. Obenbe who also doubled as the committee chairperson asked.

'All that Christy said were tissues of lies,' I began. I went on to tell them how I had decided to end my affairs with her and how she had vowed
that I could not just 'dump' her like that.

'I didn't even want to do anything with her last night,' I concluded. 'She made me to do it.'

'You mean she still encouraged you to do 'it' after you have made her to sleep off?' Mr. Lanre, a man I suspected hated my guts, asked.

'You mean she still encouraged you to do 'it' after you have made her to sleep off?' Mr. Lanre, a man I suspected hated my guts, asked.

'It's a lie from the pit of hell that I made her to fall asleep,' I said. 'Nothing like that ever happened. She was awake and alert through out the
time she was with me.'

They asked me to excuse them for a minute. By the time I was called in again, the august committee was ready to give its verdict.

'Mr. Aloh, you are hereby found guilty of indecent conduct and rape,' Mrs. Obenbe said summarily. 'And you're suspended from engagement
with this school indefinitely until further notice. Go and hand over all the school books in your care to your Head of Department.'

That was the verdict. I rose to my feet and returned to the staff-room. No one believed me, I thought grimly. No one believed that I did not rape
her. The fact was Christy was the one that should be charged and found guilty of indecent behaviour, but see how the table had been turned
against me.

I was packing my books when the suspension letter came. Everything was so fast. It was as if they were eager to get rid of me. I handed the
school books in my care to my HOD and left the school. He expressed sympathy for my ordeal, which was like cold comfort. It was only when I
was outside the premises that I decided to call Faith.

'Hello, darling,' I started. 'How're you?'

'Fine, Love. I'll be over to your staff room to see you during break.'

'Something terrible has happened, my dear.'

I could hear her as she caught her breath. 'What? What happened?'

'I've been accused of rape and have been suspended indefinitely.'

'What!' Her shock was palpable. 'You raped a female student?'

'No, it was not a student. The accusation was from one of the cleaners, the one called Christy.'

'Oh God, you raped Christiana?'

I winced. 'No, I didn't rape her. She was in my house and something happened between us, but I never raped her.'

'I can't believe this. You mean Christiana and you were lovers? Why then did you deceive me into starting a relationship with you?'

'I didn't deceive you. I told her it was all over between us and her bitterness led to this accusation.'

'But how would she make such an allegation if indeed you didn't do it?'

I sighed in exasperation. Yes, I knew the odds were against me, but I expected Faith to show some understanding. 'Can you make it to my place
this evening? I will tell you the whole truth and nothing but the truth.'

She stopped hm.

'Let me ask you it simple question: Is her underwear in it house or not?'

The question hit me hard. Now, he knew he was in a big fix. Lying could temporarily save me, but the truth would put me in a bigger mess. Despite the odds, he opted for the latter.

'Answer the question.' She glared at me, while he smiled sadly.

'Yes, it is, but I can explain that.'

Faith shook her head. She had confirmed what she needed to confirm. 'I'm sorry, I. It relationship is over.'

She made to step out of the apartment.

'Wait, Faith, wait.' He looked pathetic. Sweats dotted my brows. 'Let me explain. I ...'

She wasn't listening anymore. She left my apartment for her car which she had parked outside the compound.

He followed. Flustered as he was, he tried to look calm.

'Faith deliberately left it there.' The words rushed out of my mouth.. 'It was later after she had gone that I saw it. I wasn't inside with her when she removed it. I didn't do anything or tried anything with her.'

Faith opened the car door, sat swiftly at the driver's seat and slammed the door shut. She did not even look at me as he came to the side of the car. She kicked the engine into life.

He was astonished as he watched her drive off. It must be a nightmare, he thought in dejection. How could Faith do it to me? She had tried to seduce me and had come with it scheme of being the victim!

But Faith should have listened to my explanations and believe me. She should have known that he would not lie to her.

He went back to my sitting room feeling so sad. He could not even take my breakfast again. What would he do now? An idea came to my mind. Give her some time. Maybe by tomorrow, she would be calm enough to listen to me.

You're a fool, a voice scolded me. Why're you behaving so childishly and naively? Why didn't you give Faith what she wanted in the first place?

A pretty lady visits a guy and expresses desire for me, what is the crime in that? Faith is beautiful. She has good curves and every other good thing. Only a foolish guy will say no. See where your piety has landed you. Fool!

Another voice would tell me he had done the right thing. Lustfulness kills, it said. It is better to have temporary setbacks than to meet with ultimate doom.

The voice further told my mind that he was just fretting for nothing. Fretting for nothing? My mind went blank. But why would he fret for nothing?

He was reminded that the decision to marry Faith was not my own in the first place. It was the Lord's decision. Why not leave everything to God? Why not let me sort things out in My own way?
