“Martha I need a very cold tea for breakfast and little
milk and then two slices of bread. I want it ready before
I finish dressing up”
“okay sir. Oga please I wanted reminding you about the
money I asked you for “
” what money! I don’t know I now pluck money from
trees. Ohh I see, it seems you are getting too
comfortable in this house that’s why you have the guts
to ask me for irrelevant things, will you get out of my
sight now! ” Ade curled his hand into a fist as he
watched Martha hurrying back to the kitchen. He hissed
and entered into his room.
” he is just too mean and I will teach him a lesson. I
wonder why he hates me this much”. She scooped some
milo into the tea cup and put some milk in it and stirred
in some water then she smiled to herself “now it is time
to make tea”
She rushed to her room and brought out a whitish
powdered substance in a small white leather and
proceeded to the kitchen.
” blessing told me a pinch but I will put all of it… Yes! “
She emptied the whole content of the leather and stirred
the contents of the cup. ” Martha where is my breakfast
am running late! “
” am coming sir! “. She rushed to the dining and gave it
to Ade who kept on gulping the contents of the cup till
it got empty.
” why does this tea taste so different today Martha? “
he began to pack his files and put them into his
briefcase. She smiled at least he will have my time now
this is the right moment to tell him this.
“ehmm oga I am pregnant, we are going to have a
baby” she jumped as she concluded. She was brought
back from her joyous journey by Ade’s hysterical
“Martha are you serious! ” Ade asked again laughing
harder this time. Martha smiled and joined her boss
laughing, she would give her friend a huge amount of
money after this.
” wow.. That’s good news my dear. Just wait till I get
back from work”. He grabbed his briefcase and headed
out. Martha jumped and did a small dance and
proceeded to her room, she needed to call blessing and
tell her the good news.
Romoke smiled sadly she replayed the scene she saw at
Ade’s office, she had seen the lady he was with, It was
that same lady that slapped her. She groaned inwardly,
she had really been a fool falling in love with her Boss,
Edet had warned her but she didn’t believe him not until
she saw it herself. And since then she had tried avoiding
him she was happy when his secretary came back from
her leave of absence. Romoke had moved back to her
office on the first floor and Ade had behaved like nothing
really happened not that they were dating anyways. She
sighed, the intercom buzzed again
“Miss Romoke…. Oga Ade wants to see you in his office
” okay ” her heart beat suddenly increased and she
suddenly started feeling hot even inside an air-
conditioned room she touched her chest and wondered
what he wanted to say to her but whatever it was, she
assured herself that she isn’t going to be his next prey.
Ade kept on pacing up and down his office he stopped
to look through the window, Martha is pregnant for
him? No it can’t be it was only twice and he didn’t spill
his seed in her. He loosened his tie, now he had another
problem Romoke. He had been avoiding her because he
had been to ashamed and too proud to apologize, now
what would she think of him? but he didn’t realize he
had fallen in love with her until the Dara’s incident, he
has really missed Romoke’s gists, advices are company.
He heard a knock on his door and quickly went to his
“come in ” he has never seen her on trousers but she
really looked good in her black office trouser and a
cream Blazers and it seemed as if she wore a new
hairstyles, ah! Yeah, the black braids really brought out
her face and made her smooth V-shaped face glow.
” you sent for me sir? ” why is she acting all formal.
” ah! Yes! Romoke please sit”
Romoke tried not to look at his face cause she could
feel herself shaking but she was going to stand her
ground, she can’t keep loving a man that doesn’t care
about her feelings. He even looked quite handsome, his
beards were quite shaved and she could see through the
shirt he wore how broader his shoulders are, she cleared
her throat this is not her first time seeing this guy so
why is noticing all these now, she shook her head as if
to burst lustful imaginations but they seem to increase,
she was thankful when he broke the silence.
“ehmm, you see Dara is my ex. I mean ex girlfriend. So
whatever happened was just nothing and am sorry it
It meant something! You cheat! You hurt me! She
wanted to say all those but she sat tongue tied and the
only thing she kept on saying was
” no problem sir “
” Am serious Romoke it means nothing, am really sorry
about it” and I love you he wanted to add but he felt it
was too early for such.
“it doesn’t matter sir it’s not as if we are in a
relationship. So don’t feel sorry sir”. Romoke blurted out
before she could stop herself, she pinched herself and
looked up to meet Ade’s burning gaze, he was not
happy why would she utter this statement he thought.
“okay, but you didn’t tell me you and Edet are in a
relationship… But I hope we still remain friends
Romoke? ” she shook her head, was he jealous ohh it
was because he saw them that day.
” no sir we are not dating, we are just colleagues
nothing more ” Ade felt his heart do a somersault
atleast she is still single.
” okay…. Can I atleast take you to lunch this afternoon
please? ” She smiled she was loving all these but she
would still make sure she doesn’t fall into his trap as
she doesn’t want to be deceived she thought
” no problem sir”
“it’s not sir.. It’s Ade ” he smiled even though Martha’s
discovery still lurked somewhere in his mind he was
going to deal with that when he gets home.
Dara picked up her phone and kept on dialing the
number on her screen but she kept on hearing ” the
number you are calling is busy”. She threw the phone
on her bed in frustration as she kept on pacing round
her well furnished room. a smallish fair woman peeked
into her room and walked in fully she was Dara’s
carbon copy except that she looked older. Mrs Sarah
Davis a woman of high standard and respect she owned
a thriving secondary school as well as a university.
Rumors had it that it was after the death of her
husband 28 years ago that she started flourishing but
she didn’t seem to care about all those rumors all she
cared about is to make her money, attend parties and
also to paint the town red with her sugar boys. Yeah
sugarboys! She sure has them plenty both the models,
the athletes and even the mechanics, a friend of hers
once asked her “Sarah why mechanics of all men?” she
would say “because they make a dirty work clean and
their machines are strong and well lubricated”. Her only
friend is Ade’s mother though they hardly see because
of her schedules but they spoke almost all the time on
“Dara…. What’s wrong? I was told you haven’t touched
your food? ” Dara sat on the bed and began to sob.
” why will Ade keep treating me like trash mom? I did
what you adviced me to do, I went to his office last
week and since then he hasn’t even called me neither
has he picked my call”.
“is that why you are unhappy? Ehnnn Dara? Oya clean
your tears”. Dara cleaned her tears. She wondered why
guys always dumps her but just take a look at her
plumpy mother, most men would prefer been with her
mom rather than her. But why? She asked herself and
stared at her mother who was busy chatting away on
her phone before she met her daughter’s gaze.
“why are you staring at me now madam?… So you said
Ade doesn’t have your time right? “
” yes mummy “
” good.. So is he seeing anyone? “
” hmm no… well I don’t know but I heard him mention
one name ehmm Romoke “. Her mom stared at her like
she was still trying to process the name.
” Romoke? What kind of local name is that? So you
mean your rival is Romoke? I haven’t seen the person
but the name sounds local”. She stood up and started
to walk out of her daughter’s room
“mom… Please I need Ade to look at me at least as his
girlfriend ” she concluded as she walked up to her mom.
” ehnnn that is a small issue now, u just get her
surname but for the main time I will talk to Ade’s
“thks mom you are the best! “
” oya come and eat your food, I will be going out so
don’t expect me tonight “
” okay mom… ” she replied sadly and her mom walked
out of her room. Sometimes she felt her mom is too
wild to be a mother cause which woman in her right
senses will always party and have lots of sugar boys.
Well atleast if she gets back with Ade she would marry
him and leave her crazy mother alone, she sighed and
walked to the dining table to devour her food.
He can remember seeing a part of her cloth stained
when he went to the kitchen to get some water some
months ago. He could recall that she hissed when she
realized she was stained with her monthly flow, and she
had excused herself from the kitchen. He could still
remember that just after one month of mistakingly
sleeping with her, there was a day he ordered her to
cook pounded yam and she had complain of menstrual
cramps that he even had to send his gateman to get
her drugs. Ade shifted on the chair as he continued
staring at the arsenal match he was watching he was
supposed to go to the viewing center as usual to watch
the match because it’s always boring when you watch it
alone with no guyz to shout “ehee!” or ” pass the ball
now” or with no Guinness in your hand to balance with
He knew he couldn’t have gotten the desperate girl
pregnant but he knew what to do he was going to scare
her first and then check her reaction if she’s confident
then he would really have to wait till the child is born
and do a paternity test. He switched off the television
and turned to go to his room when he collided with
Martha who was wearing a transparent nightgown.
Disgusted by her presence he shifted and turned to go
to his room only to be blocked by her.
“whats your problem! ” he shouted furiously, Martha
shook, scared by his outburst she quickly moved out of
” the doctor said that we should…. be together to aid
easy child birth”. She concluded rubbing her already
stomach. Ade stopped in his tracks and turned to face
Her fully, he knew it was time to put her into her right
“you bloody LovePeddler…. You better take the
pregnancy back to its owner okay!” he eyed her and
stared at her to notice her reaction, of course she was
shivering she had started bringing out tears. He smiled
to himself I should add some more, he shouted again
“I want you out of this house by morning you get!!
Desperado!! “. He marched off to his room banging the
Martha moved to sit on one of the cushions, sobbing
quietly she sniffed her nose and shook his head, wishing
she had rejected blessing’s advice even the love charm
made him hate her the more. She wouldn’t have pushed
the pregnancy on him cause deep within her heart she
knew oga Ade was a very nice man but because of her
quest for wealth and reaping what she did not sow has
landed her in been jobless and homeless cause oga Ade
would really chase her out. She needed to see Blessing
so that they would go and beg Theophilus. Maybe he
could still take her back after all she did to him.
“I wonder why your husband never responds to my
greetings anyways… How are you doing my friend “?
Mrs Sarah Davis flashed her teeth. she had come to
Ade’s mother’s house, Mrs Anna Jacobs.
” ohh I see, you are welcome my friend how are you
doing and how is Dara”? Mrs Anna Jacobs wasn’t
comfortable with her friend’s visit, she only comes
visiting when there is some favour she needed. and
Sarah coming to visit her always sent her a message of
insecurity. Because right from their university days all
through she was known as miss wild and her been wild
led her Mrs Jacobs into something she shouldn’t have
done. They had done something and she hoped Sarah
wouldn’t hunt her with it in future. She smiled at her
friend revealing her dimples, she always felt Sarah had
been jealous of her beauty and body shape that was
why she took advantage of her years ago. S blinked her
eyes, well that is in the past.
“so what brings Sarah to my humble abode”
Sarah kept on typing away on her phone, she loved and
as well hated this woman she’s with right now. Loved,
yes she loved what they shared in the past. Hated, she
hated the fact that she was prettier and got married to
one of the billionaires the country has today. She was
supposed to get married to her husband but instead he
chose Anna over her, and she had wanted blackmailing
her with the video they made years ago but she couldn’t
find it then, but now that she has the video she knows
what to do. She smiled
“am so sorry Anna was chatting with one of my sugar
boys,….. So how is Ade? “
” am sure he is fine “
” well, I don’t think so your son is not treating Dara well
and I don’t like it”
Anna shook her head as she was trying to absorb the
“okay, so my friend what do you want me to do….
Cause Ade is a grown man and obviously I can’t tell
him what to do”.
“my friend, of course you can tell him what to do” Sarah
stood up from where she was sitting and moved closer
to where her friend sat. She drew closer to Anna and
held her hand.
“my dear friend, you are his mother he will definitely
concur to whatever you ask him to do…… Tell him he
needs to get married to Dara that’s all”.
“what! I can’t do that Sarah, it’s his choice”.
“my friend you have to or else you will not like what will
come out of It! “
Anna sat still she snatched her hand from her friend’s
grip, she sat bemused for some minutes before her mind
struck and her throat suddenly went dry. Oh no! She
surely has the video, she groaned inwardly and rolled
her eyes, she was already having a running temperature.
“if you do not comply with what I just told you I would
release the video. You know I can do it”. She planted a
kiss on her friend’s ear lobe biting it softly, she laughed
aloud and walked out.
Anna groaned she stood up to leave to her room as her
knees suddenly wobbled and she slumped the could
hear her housemaid shouting “madam”, as she kept on
hearing Sarah’s wicked laughter ringing in her ears.
