This story dey sweet my body0January 30, 2018 at 11:50 am #1171715
“Well they’re kids. When a visitor comes,
they expect some sort of payment for
intruding on their privacy.” Abena replied
and Tobi chuckled.
Joseph was seating on a wheelchair, placed
in front of the house to welcome them. Tobi
gave him a friendly pat on the shoulder
while Abena just gave him a warm smile.
“You’re kids like money too much. They’re
s-----g me dry.” Tobi joked and Joseph
“You’re the one that spoilt them. Now
they’re used to it.” Joseph replied.
He wheeled himself into the house, and
Abena followed. Tobi shut the door behind
them. Joseph noticed the large case she
“Is that cake?” He asked.
“Yes.” She replied.
“Why is it so big?” He raised an eyebrow.
“Ask your annoying billionaire friend.” She
“I decorated it. Show him.” Tobi grinned, as
though he just became the richest man in
Abena rolled her eyes and showed Joseph
the cake. He burst into laughter and Tobi
The cake was sloppily decorated, but in the
middle, Tobi’s perfect handwriting read:
‘Hurray! The Hospital is Free From Joseph!’
“Seriously dude?” Joseph asked, still
“I heard you gave the doctor hell.” Tobi
“He was so eager to release me.” Joseph
Dera walked out of the kitchen. She smelt
like lavender and fried chicken. “Abena!”
She squealed like a little child. Abena gave
her a shy smile.
She collected the cake from her, and
dumped them in the hands of Tobi, then
pulled Abena into a tight hug. Abena patted
her back awkwardly, not knowing what to
“Dera! You’ll kill my daughter before I even
meet her.” Tobi joked.
“You’re having a girl?” She asked Abena,
“I don’t know. We want it to be a surprise.
The only thing I would want to know is how
many children I would be having.” Abena
replied with a smile.
“Hopefully four.” Joseph joked.
“God forbid!” Abena replied and they all
burst into laughter.
“Well, let’s go to the dining room. The kids
are already getting impatient.” Dera said,
holding Abena’s hand and leading them to
the dining room.
“Dera. You didn’t even greet me.” Tobi said,
“What’s my business with you? I’m so happy
I have a girlfriend by my side now. That’s
why I asked you to bring her, so I won’t
have to talk to you guys.” She joked.
“Asked me? You threatened me!” Tobi
replied and Abena chuckled.
“If you say another word, she might deprive
you from taking your chicken.” Joseph
whispered into Tobi’s ear, loud enough for
everyone to hear.
The kids were already seated on their seats,
staring longingly at the food.
“Come on. Let’s eat.”
Abena looked around her, enjoying the
feeling of having friends, and a family. It
wasn’t going to last, so she was going to
make the most of it.
“Are you sure my dress is fine?” Abena
They were walking towards the door of the
club, and Abena was feeling nervous.0January 30, 2018 at 11:51 am #1171716
I picked it out for you. Of course yes, it’s
amazing.” Tobi replied, trying to calm her
down. He placed a hand on her back, and
led her to the VIP entrance.
“If anyone asks, you’re a family friend.”
The word ‘friend’ hurt her, but she didn’t
show it. “Got it.” She said instead.
They walked into the club, and they were
greeted by a short man. He smiled widely,
Abena was sure his jaw was hurting.
“Mr. Ademi. It’s a pleasure to see you
Tobi glared at the man, all warmth leaving
his eyes. “The bouncers at the front, they’re
playing around. I don’t pay them to play. Fix
it. And get me my favorite table.”
“Right away sir.” The man said, scurrying
towards a table. He stood respectfully and
Tobi sat down. Abena sat down beside him.
The table was on a balcony that looked
down on the rest of the building. It also
gave the best view of the stage.
“Get us a personal waitress. Then go take
care of the bouncers.” Tobi instructed, while
dismissing him with his hand.
As soon as the man left, Abena looked up at
him with a raised eyebrow.
“Well, I can’t show weakness.” He said,
flashing her a smile.
A young woman walked up to them wearing
a uniform. She had an apron tied around her
waist and was holding a pen and a notepad.
“Good evening Mr. Ademi. Miss. What can I
get you?” She said in a shaky voice. Her
hand trembled as she tried to hold the pen
“What is one of the things you are expected
to do as a waitress, Miss. Tayo?” Tobi
asked, peering at her name tag and then
looking up at her hair.
“I didn’t tie my hair. I’m sorry sir. I forgot.”
“Good. After you take our orders, go and tie
your hair. We wouldn’t want people to find
hair in their food.” He said and she nodded
“I would have red wine. Abena?”
Abena gave her a warm smile, but that
didn’t calm her down. “Yoghurt. Strawberry
please. And a bendy straw.”
“A bendy straw?” Tobi lifted an eyebrow but
Abena just shrugged.
The woman nodded, while writing the orders
“Bring the drinks first, then we’ll consider if
we want to eat or not.” Tobi instructed and
she nodded again and scurried away.
“You’re so intimidating. Oh my God!” Abena
He just shrugged. “Runtown is performing
“Really? Wow. That’s exciting. I haven’t met
a celebrity before.”
“Abena. You live with one.” He smirked and
she just rolled her eyes.
Tayo came with their drinks and then, they
both ordered for assorted meat pepper soup.
After a while, Tobi stood up. “I need to go
to the restroom. Would you be okay?”
Abena nodded, taking a sip of her drink, and
then he left. She was seating very close to
the table, and her pregnant stomach was
A young man came towards her, with a
confident smirk plastered across his face.
“Mind if I seat?”
“Actually, I mind. Someone’s there already.”
Abena replied politely but the man didn’t
“Just a friend. Can you please move? I’m
trying to watch the dance.” She said,
gesturing to the stage where a dance group
was performing.0January 30, 2018 at 11:53 am #1171717
If you let me seat down, I’ll move.” He
“Someone is seating here. Sorry.” She said
through gritted seat.
“You know, when I walked in and I saw you.
God! You took my breath away. And I
wondered, what is a beautiful woman like
you doing here all alone?”
Abena opened her mouth to reply but
someone else did that for her.
“She’s not alone.” Tobi said casually, folding
his arms angrily across his chest. “Now
“And you are?” The man asked, offended.
“Mr. Tobi Ademi. Would you like further
The man became pale almost immediately
and began to stutter.
“Just leave. I don’t have time for this.” Tobi
said wearily and the man left quickly.
He sat down and turned to Abena. “You
seem to be catching the eye of every man
in the room.”
“Ew. I don’t catch eyes. Their really slimy.”
She joked and he just laughed and rolled his
Runtown came up the stage to perform.
Then Tobi stood up and smirked at her.
“Would you like to dance?”
“I didn’t know a pregnant woman could
dance so well.” Tobi slurred.
Abena had to drive them home from the
club, because Tobi had drunk too much.
“I didn’t know you could be so useless.”
Abena replied, leading him towards the
He fished out the keys from his blazer
pocket and gave them to her. She opened
the door, and let him walk in before she
walked in after him. After locking the door,
she turned around to see Tobi staring
intensely at her.
He stumbled towards her and placed his
hands on both sides of the door, trapping
her in the middle.
“Tobi? What are you doing?” She asked in a
whisper, ignoring her heart pounding
excitedly against her chest.
“You’re so beautiful.” He said in a husky
voice. He had leaned in, and was whispering
in her ear. “You’re always beautiful. So
perfect. I wish you were mine.”
Her heart quickened as he stared at her, at
her lips. She licked her lips in anticipation,
then remembered something.
He was drunk.
He wasn’t in his right senses and he
wouldn’t remember anything the next day.
He was already leaning in to kiss her, their
breaths already mixing. She interrupted the
moment with a nervous laugh, which caused
him to stand upright.
“Do you need help getting upstairs?” She
asked and he shook his head, acting like
nothing happened a minute ago.
She nodded and forced her legs to walk
away from him and towards the stairs.
But all she wanted to do that moment was
run back and kiss him senseless.
“Stupid! Stupid! Stupid!” Tobi muttered to
himself as soon as Abena disappeared up
the stairs. He rested on the sitting room
door and buried his face in his palms.
Of course she didn’t want to kiss him. She
didn’t even like him.
The good thing was that he was tipsy, and
so she would think that he did it because he
drank too much.
He remembered her lips, and how badly he
wanted to kiss them. He would have done it.
If it was another woman he would have
taken the chance, kissed her. But he knew
Abena wasn’t just any other woman.
She was far more than that.
The next day, Abena was in the kitchen,
making sweet potato porridge for lunch
while Tobi lay on the couch watching a
He had refused to go to work, even after
Abena tried to convince him that she was
fine. He had been working from home.
The doorbell rang.
She hummed in reply.
“Get the door. It should be Chinwe, the
She rolled her eyes at his bossy attitude but
went towards the door anyway. She didn’t
bother to check, but opened the door to
greet Chinwe, but it wasn’t her.
An elderly woman stood there, elegantly
dressed and behind her was a chubby young
woman who looked rich and overfed.
Abena’s heart raced and her palms became
sweaty. The resemblance was uncanny.
“Abena? Are you okay? Who is it?”
Tobi walked up to her and looked at the
woman. A broad smile appeared on his face.
“Mama. You didn’t tell me you were
