When you lean on my shoulder, I feel like a superheroine
When you call me Mother, my heart melt like wax
You are my pride, Son
You complete my world
You’re a true extension of myself both in looks and in deeds
I may not have the world riches to give
But surely, you already have my love, my heart and my life
You will have the peace and love that only a mother could give.
The comfort only my arms could give
I will give you a reason to appreciate my existence
To the world, I must say…
I love you, Son.

She knew the voice was fake, auto tuning and the rest of the magic the music producer often did. To her he was lip singing.
She sighed, then she caught sight of Funke and her ex, Gabriel’s eyes widened as he took her image in and Funke was terrified especially when Ness came in with the son of the IG of police, holding her waist.
She ignored them, no use crying over spilt milk. It was time to move on.
She felt sad, the guys here were not her crowd. She felt so uncomfortable, the music was just refined stink to her, promises that were bound to fail. She sighed here friends were singing and dancing while she began to mope.
The song track title was so common, as if there were no more titles or names again.
Everything except for her drink was sour. Stupid ex and stupid best friend, they can both rot in hell. She decided to take something stronger.
“A cosmos please.” she said, as she sat on the bar stool. She took the drink after ordering a couple more she felt the effect. Ha! Although she didn’t drink much, but her stamina was surprising.
She licked her lips, enjoying the tingling taste. “I’ll take the snap for ladies.” she said politely.
“And I’ll pay for another drink then.” she heard a clear baritone voice near her.
She snorted and eyed him, although she was drunk she knew cocky when she saw it. She sipped the drink and sighed.
“What do you want?” she asked, alcohol giving her the boldness to ask as she crossed her legs and eyed him.
“I want you.” he said nonchalantly.
Sophia scoffed and stood balancing herself like a graceful ballerina.
“Excuse me, even under this and drugs. I wouldn’t allow you.” she said angrily.
At that moment, Funke came by and exchanged pleasantries with the guy hitting on her.
“Tart, how dare you?” she cried out, as she lunged at her.
She had almost gotten rid of her blouse when they called security and she was dragged out.
She sat outside on the floor, it was cold and her friends were probably engrossed there was no one to help her.
She turned as someone tapped her, it was the man who had offered her a drink, he motioned for her to stand and she followed him.
She refused to enter, when he took her to his car.
“Where are you taking me to?” she asked as he gestured to her.
“You know you are drunk and you just attacked someone.” he said, the voice was vaguely familiar.
“Do I care, she stole my boyfriend.” she said angrily.
“From your expression, I thought you were over him.” he said, as he stood beside her.
She eyed him,his cologne was very seducing. She moved away, before she spoke.
“Yes, but who was she to butt in, she…” she suddenly burst into tears all the insecurities she buried deep down began to resurrect.
“Stop crying, no one is worth your tears.” he said, as he held her in his arms.
“I think I’m ugly, that was why he left me.” she said sobbing, as she began the narration of her dating history to a total stranger whom she didn’t know but she felt relaxed as he patted her hair.
“Sorry about that, I’ve my story to tell and my legs are aching so why don’t we drive around in the car.” he said, as he urged her in.
Sophia felt guilty the guy was nice enough to hear her sob story, why didn’t she do the same. She entered reluctantly and waited until he entered the car.
Nothing prepared her for his story, she felt so sorry for him, that she didn’t realize they were making out.
She was jolted out of her state, when she felt his hands under her dress.
“Stop, please I’ve not done this before.” she said as she pulled away.
“Okay, sorry I got carried away.” he withdrew sadly, he scratched his neck and sighed.
Sophia was scared, this was not her she didn’t know what she wanted, maybe she should…no, she couldn’t sleep with an ordinary guy who had a good sob story.
But her alcohol induced thoughts got the better of her. She would never see him again anyway, what did she have to lose. Who would want her anyway with her oversized hips, well she could just seize the moment and go with it.
She looked at him, as she licked her upper lips nervously.
“Okay, then would you like to be my first.” she asked timidly. The guy’s eyes widened in the darkness.

“No, this is not what you want.” he said shaking his head.
“Please I want this, no one wants me, please.” she said as she held his arm.
“I don’t…” he was stopped as she kissed him. He pulled her away, “are you sure about this?” he asked again.
“Yes.” she said, as she gave him a lazy grin.
He didn’t say anything, but his speed told her he was more than up for it. She smiled happily as their fingers were entwined.
She felt nervous and anxious but she ignored it as she got to his house and he took her to his house.
“Are you sure this is what you want? I don’t want a assault case filed against me.” he said, as they stood beside his front door. She couldn’t really see his face but the sincerity in her voice almost made her turn back.
“I’m ready for this. I’m ready to go with you.” she said, as she leaned in to kiss him.

“hmm. Where am I?” Sophia yawned and sat up, the room was beautiful. And it looked like a hotel, “wait oh, when did she lodge in a hotel?” she looked at herself and almost screamed. She was Unclad, and she looked at her side there was a man. A man, what was he doing beside her?
Then all of yesterday’s events and regrets rushed to her memory. She remembered how he had cautioned her but her alcohol induced state misled her. She tried to entangle herself from the man who slept like a baby. She didn’t even know who she slept with, his face was blurred and it was at night. She managed to stand and saw her underwear, they were irredeemable. She managed to salvage her dress, before she decided to even look at the man.
To her shock and surprise, her eyes noted the full hair, his dimples and his face. She started crying inside, she was shaking as she almost fell down.
She hurriedly picked her purse, and bolted out of the room, she didn’t stop until she got to the stairs and then the front door. She went to the gate, the gateman thought she was mad as she told him to open the gate. She walked barefoot and her phone was already out of battery. She found N2000 in her purse and hailed a taxi to get her to her house.
When she got home, she was lucky her parents were not around, she started charging the dead phone and used her other one to call Ness.
“Bae, where have you been? We searched everywhere. I thought you were kidnapped.” Ness yelled angrily.
“Sorry, I met a guy and things just went haywire.” she apologized.
“Haywire? Okay then. Hope you’ve packed your things because we are going in five minutes.” Ness said, Sophia grew anxious.
“Please give me fifteen minutes.” she said pleading. Which kind of mess had she got herself into?
“Whatever don’t delay me sha?” Ness said angrily.
Suddenly Sophia wished Gina was going with them.
“Are you ready?” she heard Ness call her out, she looked out from her window.
“Yes, I’m coming.” she said, as she wore her clothes hurriedly. She dragged the heavy suitcase the maid Nkiru, had packed yesterday.
She removed her phone from the charging point, and dialed her mom’s number as she went outside.
Their house was a modest two storey building, unlike the huge duplex that Ness and Gina lived in. She loved the house, she would miss her family. Her three younger brothers were in boarding school.
Her mom was already talking on the phone.
“Osiso? What is it? Why are you calling now.” she heard the strain in her voice.
“Ma, I just called to say I was going,I…”she was cut by Ness waving her hands frantically for her to hurry up.
“Do you want to speak to your father?” her mother asked.
“Yes ma.” she heard the sigh, and then the sound of someone walking into a room.
“Papa, is that you?” she asked, as she allowed Ness’ driver to take her luggage and she entered the car.
“hmm, my baby, why did you call this early? I thought you had agreed to stay with the Nwaifos.” he said gruffly. Immediately she felt bad, this was six in the morning and she was already waking her parents from their sleep on their vacation.
“Yes papa, I just wanted to tell you that I was going.” she said, as the driver eased the car out of the house.
Silvanus, the gate man waved at her and she nodded her head.
“Okay then, but remember all I’ve told you, biko don’t disgrace me, you know you are the jewel of the family.” he said.
“Yes papa, I remembered everything and I won’t let you down.” she said gritting her teeth.
“Okay, hmm, Nne ‘Maka, are you not telling your daughter goodbye.” she heard her father say to her mother but she knew her mom would ignore him.
“Papa, leave her alone. Let her sleep. Enjoy yourself.” she said, smiling to herself as she cut the phone.
