One thing about Prince, he doesn’t like asking
for favor except the one’s he merits. He’s a
man of integrity, so I personally gave up. My
sister looks sad though.
“Prince, it’s OK you’ve tried your best. Thank
God her name is the first on the waiting list”
I said trying to lighten the mood.
He looked at me in the eyes “Anike this is the
first time you asked a favor from me and I
will do it even if he meant kissing the foot of
He picked up his phone, I know he wants to
place the call.
“You don’t have to do it, I know you don’t
“It’s nothing, I’ll call him. I have a good
relationship with him and asking him
something for the first time we make things
“Ok” I said
He called the former head of state but the
phone was not on speaker this time. After
some minutes of conversing with him, he
ended the call.
“What did he say?” I asked
“Let’s wait till tomorrow” he replied
May be he doesn’t want to raise our hopes
up, I guessed.
He changed the topic and started asking my
sister questions and most are funny
questions. And before I knew it my sister’s
mood has lightened. Mr PA joined us and I
see the way he looked at my sister, but I
waved the thought off.
We all retired to our various room that
evening. I already sorted out my sister and
gave her everything she needed including a
She took her bath and changed. I did the
same after her. She lay on the bed ready to
sleep and I told her I want to get something
from the kitchen but that was a lie.
I tapped the door lightly and entered into
Prince’s bedroom. He was not in the
bedroom. I opened the sliding glass door that
led to his bedroom pool, he sat on a swing
bed by the pool side swinging himself gently.
Hi” I said.
He looked up and was surprised to see me.
“Hi” he replied calmly.
He stretched forth his right hand and I took it
and sat on his laps.
“Are you not sleeping in the guest room?”
“I am, I came to say good night”
“She should be sleeping by now” I guess you
can’t sleep, that’s why you are here” I said
looking him in the eyes.
“How will I sleep, the thought of you been so
close but still far from me is enough to give
me insomnia” he said smiling at me.
“I thought as much and that is why I came”
“That’s why I love you, you can always tell
how I’m feeling”
I smiled and he kissed my forehead
“Now that you’ve seen me, you should be
able to sleep now”
“If you say so”
“Now let’s go to bed, I’ll rock you to sleep
and I’ll leave afterwards”
He obeyed and we went back into the
bedroom. I made him sleep with his head on
my chest. Some minutes later he was already
asleep. Who says men are not babies.
I looked at his face, he was sleeping
peacefully, he was even looking handsome in
his sleep. I smiled and snapped him with my

I opened the door to guest room and I was
surprised my sister was still awake.
“Adekemi, I thought you’d be sleeping by

when I see one”
“Seriously!” I couldn’t believe my ears. She
“See the way all the staff in this house treats
you like a goddess.
We to came Abuja with just our phones and
handbags. Where did all this clothing’s came
from. It meant one thing, your things are
here. You practically live here, right”
“Adekemi I don’t live here!”
“Really! You can tell that to an imbecile
Anike….you lied to us that this man is just a
good Samaritan. You even lied to your own
mother. And I’m very sure hes not your
“Stop! Adekemi stop!”
“You are his mistress, right”
I closed my eyes, I don’t know the right
words to say to her. I know I may never be
that sister she was once proud of again.
“You did this for us right. I understand,
Thank you for the sacrifice big sister” she
said and broke into tears.
I moved closer to her and hugged her. “It’s
alright kid sister.”
“How are you coping, He’s way older than
“Adekemi, when life throws lime at you, all
you have to do is to make lemonade out of it”
“I would have been scared for you but that
man I met today he’s a good man”
“Yes he is, the most priceless thing I’ve ever
came across. I see him as a father figure”
“I can see you are comfortable around him”
“Yep” I gave her a smiley face.
“Sister mi! You are blushing! Are you in love
I smiled. “I choose not to answer that
question. Now go wash your face and sleep”
“Yes sis” she smiled and when into the
bathroom. She came back and lie on the bed.
“One more thing, this is our little secret,
nobody must hear about it and that includes
“Now sleep, it’s late”
“Sister mi, how do you cope when you sleep
with him…his age” She asked cunningly.
“Really! You don’t expect me to discuss my s-
x life with my kid sister. Do you? My friend
We both laughed, I put off the light and we
The next morning, I joined Prince in the gym
where we exercised. He was on tone of the
he tread mill. I stepped on the other tread
mill beside him. We chatted while working
out on the thread mill.
“I sent you a picture, did you get it?” I asked
“You took it last night?”
“Yes, I did”
“Do you how many pictures of you I took
while you were sleeping?”
“It’s a lie”
He stopped the treadmill and brought out his
phone from his pocket joggers. I stopped mine
“Here” he said and passed the phone to me.
The name of the folder is ‘My sleeping
beauty’. I opened the folder and saw
14pictures of me sleeping. Some in his arms,
“I could sue you for this you know” I said
“You can sue me in the court of love” I draw
him closer to me and gave him a long kissed.
We showered together and left the gym.
Breakfast was announced by the chef. The
three of us sat at the dinning taking
Adekemi was eating and starring at Prince at
the same time. She didn’t do well to hide it
from him because their eyes met like three to
“Adekemi!” Prince called out and looked at
“She knows” I said
“Thank you sir…..for everything” she said
He held her hand and smiled. Adekemi
smiled back. She couldn’t look him in the eye,
so she took her phone and busied herself
“Sister mi!” She screamed
“What!” I was so scared, Prince had drop his
“My name is on the new list” she said
I took her phone from her and checked. It
was just three names. I hugged my sister and
congratulated her. I wanted to jump on
Prince and kiss him to thank him but that I
can’t do that in the presence of my sister.
She knelt down beside Prince and thanked
him. “You made my dream come true, thank
you sir” she said gleefully.
“You are welcome my dear, please stand up”
he said and pulled her up.
I looked at Prince. “Thank you” I mouthed
“When are you reporting at the Academy?”
“Next week sir” she replied.
“Then you have to start preparing but first of
all, this calls for celebration. I’ll take you out
“Thanks sis, let me call Mummy, Okiki and
some of my friends” she said and left the
“My Prince” I smiled holding his hands.
“My princess” he replied and kissed my hand.
“Thank you…..”I said and hugged him.
He smiled. He was through with his food, he
stood up and I followed him to his room. He
called the former head of state to thank him.
I was all over him, when he ended the call. I
kissed him and he kissed me back. Minutes
later our clothes was all over the place.
“Ask anything you want from me and I’ll give
you” I said to him while making out.
“I want just one thing but You won’t give me
Anike” he said looking at my blurry eyes.
“What is it?”
“Don’t worry, forget it” He kissed me again.
My phone rang but he was still on
top of me. I stretched my hands and took my
phone from the bed side table. I checked the
caller and it was my mum. I placed the phone
“Who is calling?”
“My Mum. I’ll call her back. I’m sure
Adekemi had called her. I can’t answer her
call when a man is on top of me, I see it as
Some minutes later we were done and I took
a quick bath. I called my Mum back, she was
so happy with the news. I left his bedroom
for the guest room and my sister was still
making calls with my second phone, I’m very
sure she had exhausted her call card.
“If you exhaust my credit, I’ll have your
She hold the call. “How on earth will I
exhaust #28,000” she said and return to her
“You are not serious” I said and changed my
She ended the call after talking like forever.
“Why do you change your clothes”
“Do you have a problem with that” I grinned.
I don’t know where I got this inquisitive
sister of mine from. Did she expect me to tell
her that I changed my clothes because I just
“No o, I just asked why the second change of
clothes” she replied me
“I don’t want to wear the dress out, that’s
why. Now dress up and let’s take you out.
She dress up and we left with the driver and
one of the staff.
We came back later in the day. He had a
visitor in one of the sitting room. I was tired,
I needed to take a nap, so I went straight to
the guest room.
On Sunday before we left, Prince gave
Adekemi a new iPhone 6. He also told me to
transfer #200k into her account. She was so
“Thank you very much sir, may God continue
to bless you. I think I have a father figure
too” she turned to me and I smiled.
“You are welcome, you are free to call me
anytime. If anything happens at the academy
just let me know. I’ll call one of the directors
over there who will be your guardian. I wish
you the best” he said smiling. I can see he
likes Adekemi, my sister is a sweet girl
“Thank you sir” She said
I hugged him and he kissed my forehead.
“Bye ladies, have a safe trip”
My sister left Abuja, the most happiest girl on
planet earth. The driver took us to the
airport. PA also accompanied us.
I saw him exchanged number with Adekemi
but I pretended like I saw nothing. I can
entrust my sister in his hand, he is that great
a guy. One of the reasons why Prince treat
him like his own son.
One week later, Adekemi left for the
