No one wants to be caught lying. Not even a pastor. When I saw bae standing on the door,I knew I had to act fast so I cut the call but pretended to be talking to dad. I was screaming and jumping. . . thank you daddy thank you so much. I like it. . . what color is it.. You and mummy are the best. I will call mummy to thank her myself. Bye daddy.
After that lie,I cooked up another one,I made a fake call and pretended to be talking to my mum. . .. Hey mum thank you so much for the phone. You are the best mummy in this whole world. I will pass through intercity to collect it. Bye . . . .
Bae asked what the excitement was all about, I told him my folks got me an iPhone. I will have to pass through Mbwe motors at intercity to get it.
Your parents spoil you too much,you are a spoiled brat. Dont expect us to spoil our kids like this. Why would they get you another phone when you have one already. Anyways I dont blame them ,they only have you.
I told him it was ok to get your child things if you can afford.
He wanted another round and this time I got on top,I rode him like it was goodbye sex. Imagine making a girl happy and another guy gets appreciated for it. That’s exactly what happened. Charles made me happy but Francis got to be the one who benefited the outcome of that happiness. We later took a shower together and had the last one. Dont get me wrong guys but the thought of having an iPhone made me horny.
Bae gave me a push and when we got home, Lulu wasn’t around. Bae wanted to escort me to intercity but I refused, come on I didnt want bae to catch me lying right in my face. I told him to go get some sleep since he spent the whole night at the gig. He conquered with my suggestion,he gave me kr400 for toiletries and other things and left. I felt bad that I was lying to a good man. I really loved Francis, he was loyal,kind hearted, had looks to die for and most importantly he did all he could to make me happy.
I didnt want anything to ever come between me and bae. I decided to put an end to everything. I called Charles and told him that I will return everything to him and he should stop the mr nice guy attitude because I wasn’t poor or anything. He apologized for making me feel like that. He insisted that whatever he did. He did everything with good intentions and he did it as a friend. I told him Lulu will take the phone and I will send back the money.
Lulu came back with lots of paper bags from almost every clothing store in town.
Me: Ba sister you went shopping. . . ninshi you are loaded?
Lulu: its all because of you my friend.
Me: what do i have to do with all these shopping bags?
Lulu: well well you remember those guys at the Rhodes Park party. . . not Charles but the guys I introduced you to.
Me: not really what’s up.
Lulu: can you recall the only tall dark guy who was there.
Me: wtf Lulu just get to the point.
Lulu: he likes you and he is the one that got us these things.
Me: Luyando walipena… What the fuck is wrong with you! I have a man and his name is Francis. I love him . . . get that.
Lulu: you act as though Francis alikulisha.. . is it the chemical from the mine that has affected your thinking. You behave like a typical village girl.
Me: at least it led me to love.
Lulu: mweiche tekanya this is Lusaka.
Me: so what. . . Infact I need you to get back the phones Charles got for us and I will give him back the money.
Lulu: walipena Mwila. I will take you to a prophet for deliverance.
Me: fuseki you need deliverance more than I do.
Charles called and wanted to see me but I told him I was busy with assignments and studies. He pleaded with me to just spare him some minutes. I told him to come.
We drove to some huge house in Chalala and we sat by the balcony.
Charles: Mwila I am sorry if I made you feel uncomfortable in any way.
Me: no its ok,am over it
Charles: I must confess that you are a nice person. When I first saw you at the party,I wanted to talk to you and when I did,you brought out something in me. In these few days that I have known you,you have changed the way I feel about women. After the hurtful divorce from my ex wife. It has been difficult to trust women. I have developed insecurities. I really loved my wife and I did everything in my power to make her happy. I worked under security and my job involved a lot of moving up and down. One fateful summer I traveled to Albania for work,I was to be there for three weeks but I completed my task within two weeks and went back home. I didnt call my wife to let her know that I was going back home because I wanted to surprise her. When I got home,I found my wife on the couch having sex with my brother. I was very hurt and devasted moreover she blamed me for everything,she said I was the reason she did that. I also got to find out that our youngest child wasn’t mine. He was my best friend’s. From that day it hasn’t been easy for me. That picture of my brother thrusting my wife and her response to it. I thought I was the only one who made her moan like that, the thought of another guy making her feel like that made me hopeless. I felt not man enough.
Me: I am sorry Charles that you went through that but you should know that women are different.
Charles: thanx so much for listening. . . can we still be friends.?
Me: yes no doubt about it.
I gave him the phone but he gave it back saying it was a friendship charm. I felt bad for Charles. Uwanakashi temunobe ayi. How can you treat someone like that. Someone who is doing everything to make you happy. It made me think of Francis. I will do whatever it takes to keep my man. Its rare to find a good man nowadays.
I received a message from bae “so baby this is you huh,this is what you do”.
