I was slowly becoming a liar. This is not the child my parents raised. Charles said he wanted to go at Chicago’s and needed some company. I told him I had staff to do and will update him in an hour.
I was still in shock kept on checking my FNB account balance. . . . . . . . . .shocked and amused. How can Charles a guy I had only known for a few hours send ten thousand kwacha just like that. I have never seen such money in my life. What was this Charles all about. At first I thought of not doing anything with the money. I have heard of satanism in Lusaka, how they lure people in it. Who knows maybe Charles is a satanist.
Bae called me to tell me he was home, he had been invited to play at a party. He wanted me to tag along.
You see baby does some DJaying in his free time. Most of the time I always go with him. I usually do that to make sure I mark teritory. I dont want these hungry girls near my man. I didnt know whether to agree or not.
Lulu walked in while I was talking on phone.. I told baby to give me a few minutes and get back to me.
I told Lulu about the money I received, the invitation from Charles and Francis. Her face boomed with joy.
Lulu: Mwila let’s go shopping, you know how I love swag. I need new clothes.
Me: Are you nuts,where are you going to buy clothes this time? Walipena (mad) I dont intend to touch or use that money.
Lulu: Why if I may ask?
Me: Dont you see that its not good money. I met this guy last night, within a day he has sent kr500 airtime and 10,000 kwacha. This is wired.
Lulu; Mwila walishishita mweiche iweh (you are so dull), which part of earth are you from. Anyways I do not blame you. You grew up in a ghost mine township.
Me: Nomba (now) what’s wrong with growing up from a mine township.
Lulu: Prepare yourself we are going to Chicago’s. Opportunities like this come once in a life.
Me: Sorry sister, I’m not going anywhere.. I would rather join bae at his gig.
Lulu: Kikikikikikikiki love wantinti… Surely its not love that is blind, its people who are blind. You want to go with Francis to a gig he’s going to play at. You want to waste your beauty and finish your market. This thing of followling him to gigs has to stop.
Me: Better than going out with a stranger.
Lulu: You act as if you and Francis are twins. You are so clingy to that guy. I’m sure he is a beast in bed, I doubt this thing is based on love
Me: Lulu first of all its not about the dick. Its about the word love. Even if I explain to you, you won’t understand.
Lulu: Mweiche lolela ukalapa (Just so you wait you will be surprised.)
Me: Shut up and find someone to love you. You surely need some love to make you human. I wonder if you have feelings.
Lulu was so defensive in responding to that statement.
She cursed me and went to shower.
I called bae to tell him to come pick me up, he told me he was already on his way, he was half way to Kafue.
“Babe you should have waited for me or you should have called before you started off”. Anyways take care and have fun.. I love you.. With that I ended the call. I felt sad that bae went alone without me. I’m sure hungry girls will try by all means to throw themselves at him. Knowing my guy he has eyes for only one woman that’s me.
Charles called to find out if I was tagging along. Before I could respond, Lulu grabbed my phone she put it on loud speaker. Charles asked again, Lulu was quick to respond with a yes. “Don’t to worry Charles p we will join you soon,” get to Chicago’s, will be there.
Lulu asked me to start looking for clothes to wear. I pretended to have not heard her. She literally dragged me out of bed and forced me to dress up.. I finally gave in. I wore a black skinny and a white see through top with a white jacket and black pumps.
We called for a cab, he came to pick up in less than twenty minutes. When we got to Chicago’s, we found Charles waiting for us and joined him.
As always Lulu drunk her lungs out, I had my usual juice I ordered for wings. Chicago’s wasn’t all that nice I didnt like the music they were playing. It was boring.
Around 23 bae called, I excused myself I rushed to the loo. It cut before I reached the loo. I called back, it was busy, I guess he was trying to call back. I waited for his call but nothing. I called him back his phone went off.. I walked back to the table.
I was worried and wanted to go home. I told Charles that I needed to head back home to rest. He didnt decline, he agreed to take us. Lulu still wanted to chill, I told her to votisek and remain alone. Charles requested for the bill, after paying we left.
Charles held my hand and as we walked to the car park. I bumped into a friend of Francis. He surely looked surprised. I continued walking, Charles opened the door for me, I quickly got in. It was a nice car and very comfortable. Lulu asked what car it was, Charles said it was a Mercedes Benz E_class..
Thank God our drive from Manda Hill to our boarding house was about ten minutes.
When we got home, I thanked Charles for everything and went inside.
Lulu was busy complaining about ruining her fun. Bae called, the first question he asked was :
“Where are you? Been trying to call you.”
I told him I was home, I was trying to call him as well.
He asked me to use IMO. I cut his call rushed to the bathroom to wash off the make up on my face, put off my clothes, I jumped in bed. I called Francis on IMO, he said he was missing me. “I wanted to see your cute face.” He apologized for disturbing my sleep. It was alright to miss me I missed him too. We both said our good mornings.
Lulu started teasing me, she claimed I fed Francis something. . . . . if not then I gave him good sex.
I was deep in my thoughts worried about Francis’s friend seeing me. l’m sure he might have told Francis. I didn’t want my man to doubt me. Thank goodness I got back home in time…. I think I fell asleep. I woke up around o’clock in the morning. Francis’s call woke me. He asked me to go to his place. I got up and took a shower.
When I got to his place, I found him with his friend Mike the guy whom I saw the previous night in the car park.
I greeted them Francis didnt respond. I knew I was in trouble. Francis asked Mike to excuse us.
Francis: Babe be honest with me. You know I love you right?.
Me: Nodded my head.
Francis: Where were you last night?
Me: I was home.
Francis: Are you sure?
Me: Yes…Didnt you call me.. We chatted on IMO remember?
Francis: Yes I know. . . . . Someone told me they saw you at Chicago’s.
Me: me?????? Nahhhh l’m sure they mistook me to someone.
Francis: Yeah… I’m sorry for doubting you babe.
There is no ways I was going to confess or tell the truth. I didn’t want my man to have second thoughts. We cuddled and made love, this time he was rough in bed. . . . Francis has never been like that. He was always gentle.. When he was done, he told me to remain faithful to him or else he will know when I start cheating. He kissed my forehead. We had a shower together.
Lulu called me, she sounded so happy she was shouting on top of her voice and making noise in my ears.
She went like “you are a proud owner of an iPhone and I a proud owner of a sumsang phone.” I told her to quit joking and tell me the truth…
I had an incoming call from Charles, I cut Lulu and picked the call.
Charles: Good morning Missy have you seen my gift? Do you like………it……..?
Before I could respond…. Francis was at the door staring at me.
