    Episode 4

    “Okay, what was that all about?” Nina asked as soon as we
    entered my apartment. I was a bit hurt by the question. I
    was hoping to get a wow from her after taking a glance at my
    place. 2bedroom flat with a sitting room and a small but
    extremely neat kitchen at the side. I had arranged the
    parlour with a black and green theme; two black “modern
    design” chairs with lemon green headrests, one chair could
    be extended to a sofa for better relaxation, lemon colored
    rug with black frilled edges and two plastic green plants in
    black Chinese vases. My LED TV hung between the plants like
    a shrine to technology and my sound system levitated at the
    sides with patch on nails attaching them to the wall. Wall
    itself was painted to match the lemon on the chairs and
    finishing touches from the window blinds which were almost
    immaculately white with just a hint of green. The previous
    landlady had suggested the colours to me and I had liked
    the final outcome. I still caught her once in a while looking in
    and smiling at her “handiwork” .
    I was also worried with Nina’s question because try as i
    might I couldn’t come up with a convincing lie. I had played
    certain scenarios in my head but they all kept coming up
    porous. Every once in a while I’d think of telling her the truth
    but another part me would be like “eh? You dey craze? You
    don see madman way get girlfriend before??” So I swept that
    thought away and kept on thinking of what to say. I had
    hoped she would forget the matter on our way to Ikeja.
    “Well?” Nina’s voice cut through my thoughts like a knife. ” I
    turned and saw her standing arms akimbo on her lovely
    hour glass hips. She wore a blue hugging sleveless top and
    black jeans. During the service she had covered her top with
    a yellow jacket. She must have removed it when we came
    into the compound. It was getting to evening, the time being
    4pm but the weather was still a little hot.
    I feasted my eyes on her beauty for a while longer before
    answering. I tried to look as sad as possible.
    “Its a personal thing.”
    “Like what?” She responded. “It didn’t look like you were the
    one who needed help rather it was as if you gave the help. I
    saw the way you and the pastor stayed for a while and the
    look of gratitude in his eyes when he finally let you go.”
    “Werent you supposed to be closing your eyes?” I asked
    accusingly.
    She giggled. “Bros, na your eyes wide pass during prayers
    oh, or you think I didn’t see you? It was as if you were even
    seeing things that others could not see sef.”
    I froze. Did she know? Had I let my secret slip somehow? My
    heart started pounding in my chest.
    She saw the look on my face and mistook shock for
    embarrassment. She laughed.
    “Okay, okay, never mind. Maybe one day you’ll tell me. But
    hope u are not into rituals oh! This one your room is looking
    tech like this…”
    I laughed then, very relieved. She had agreed to let sleeping
    dogs lie, for now anyway. I showed her around the place
    and we settled down in the parlour to complete my
    assignment. I had offered her a bottle of cognac from my
    mini bar, she had politely refused and took some orange
    juice instead. Gradually the time fizzled by and it was 6pm.
    PHCN had restored power an hour earlier and I had put on
    the air conditioning but Nina hadn’t bothered to wear her
    jacket back. Not that I was complaining. her lovely arms
    glistened under my room light and the fragrance from her
    hair when we put our heads together was awesome. We
    hadn’t really spent so much time alone together and I was
    desperate to make a move that would take me out of the
    friend zone.
    We sat together on the sofa I had pulled out, almost
    rounding up the papers.
    “What would you like for dinner?”
    She looked up, a little surprised.
    “Its just six o clock, chuks. I’m not really hungry.”
    “Well, its good I start early so you’ll have something to eat
    by the time you do get hungry, yeah?”
    She paused. I had no idea what she was thinking about.I
    mean, just because I could see beyond normal didn’t mean I
    could read people’s minds though at that time I was dying to
    know her thoughts. She thought a whole longer then said,
    “not tonight.”
    “Not tonight?” I was a bit puzzled. “I can’t cook you dinner
    tonight?”
    “Yes.” She said, looking up at me. “Its my first time coming
    to your place and I don’t think it would be proper -to have
    dinner now.”
    What the hell were we talking about?
    I shrugged and sat down. The comfortable silence we had
    been enjoying was now an awkward one. We were still
    sitting close though and I could smell her perfume. Suddenly
    I felt very very “hungry”. I needed to do something, anything
    to get my mind off this situation. Where was a manifestation
    when you needed one?
    “How did you get this scar?” She asked pointing at my wrist. I
    looked at it, a scar I had gotten when trying to jump a barb
    wire fence in my primary school days. I smiled and told her.
    “Hmmn. I’ve got one too” she said, showing me a scar on
    her forearm. “Immunization needle went the wrong way,
    and formed an abscess”.
    I touched her scar. The current from her skin sent sshivers
    down my spine. She didn’t say anything but watched as I
    drew my fingers back and forth along her scar. Somehow my
    fingers went down to her elbow and back up. She gave a sigh
    and I looked into her eyes. She still didn’t say anything
    though she didn’t look down either. My heart was now
    thumping away like I was running a 100yard dash with usain
    bolt. I drew her to me slowly and we kissed. Her lips were
    soft, smooth, velvety. I felt her go warm as we embraced
    and her pulse seem to be at tandem with mine. I was about
    relaxing when I opened my eyes and saw my previous
    landlady.
    Nina felt me stiffen and opened he r eyes. She saw the look
    on my face.
    “What?” She asked.
    “Nothing, I said and tried to draw her back to me but the
    moment had passed. She stood up hurriedly and put on her
    jacket. Landlady left immediately though the damage had
    already been done. Nina picked up her handbag and
    straightened her clothes.
    “Its just one more page, I’m sure you can finish up.” She
    said. I just looked at her, not knowing weather to cry or
    complain or plead or…
    She had reached the door when I grabbed her hand and
    drew her again to me. She let me kiss her and I could have
    sworn her knees buckled but again she drew away at the last
    minute, smiled and said goodbye and was out the door.
    “Hey, lemme escort you at least na,” I yelled moving out
    after her. She laughed and came back, dragged me by the
    hand to the junction where a bike man was waiting.
    “Bus stop, seventy naira,” he declared, and she entered the
    bike. I offered to pay but she politely refused. Just before
    the bike man zoomed off I bent close to her ears and
    whispered
    “If I offended you in anyway…”
    “No,no…” She smiled, “its just…I’m…”
    “You aren’t married are you?!” I said.
    “No” she said laughing, ‘its just, can we talk about it
    tomorrow?”
    “Now you are behaving weird”.
    She laughed again and the bike man zoomed off .
    I walked back to my apartment and sat down at the front
    entrance. Previous landlady came up and sat down beside
    me.
    “I’m sorry.” She said.
    “Yeah, it’s ok I guess.” I replied.
    “I spoilt the moment.”
    “Well, yes you kind of did.” I replied.
    She paused for a while.
    “You should get a car, you know” she said again. “That way,
    you could have dropped her off. Why don’t you get one? Its
    not as if you can’t afford it.”
    “Don’t like cars.” I said “what did you want?”
    “I wanted to let you know I’ll be leaving permanently soon. I
    can see the bright tunnel clearly now and my daughter has
    gone to reconcile with her father. Soon my soul will be at
    rest. I also wanted to thank you for being a friend during
    these lonely times.
    “You’re welcome.” I said.
    She patted me on the shoulder and smiled. ” Nice lady” she
    said. “Lovely wings”
    “Yes ma, they are.” I said, smiling. And then she
    disappeared.
    I heard that previous landlady was a mother to all around
    her when she was alive. I don’t normally see ghosts, just the
    ones with very strong spirits. I was happy she was finally
    going through the veil, though that happiness would have
    been complete if Nina had allowed me one more kiss…

    Still want to be like me??
