Story: The Heat Of Virginity

    Episode 1

    My name is adeolu.
    There’s a saying. “What can’t kill you can make you stronger.”
    But the truth is action speaks louder than mere words.
    I don’t know how strong I will be coming out from this
    predicament that I have found myself.
    This all started about 2 years ago in my youth service year in
    Kogi state. There was this very good canteen not too far
    from Yagba East local government council, where I frequent
    often for my CDS. It was the aroma that lured me to the
    place, the savory of scented stew and fried meat, it was
    irresistible, I couldn’t just evade myself from the luscious
    captivity that overwhelmed me Perhaps, a simple restrain
    would have changed history, would have saved me from all
    these. As I entered the canteen, I grabbed a plate and stood
    on the queue salivating and waiting for my turn. When it got
    to my turn, before me was something more compelling than
    the meal that I expected. My eyes got locked in contact with
    the young lady who was serving the meal.
    She was beautiful beyond expression, I could hardly
    compose myself and it took me some few seconds to reboot.
    She then asked.
    “What food do you want sir?” In fluent English. I stuttered.
    “Give me….. rice N50, dodo N50 and 3 pieces of meat.”
    I was going to pay and she refused to collect the money. I
    didn’t understand the kind gesture, I then insisted and she
    smiled at me and said.
    “It’s okay, it’s on me.” I then took a seat and started eating.
    While I was eating, I noticed her looking at me at some
    instance. It drove my curiosity wild and I was eager to know
    her. She sounded quite polished and she looked more
    dignified than running a local canteen, I knew there was
    more to it. As I was done, I went to meet her and said to her.
    “Thank you very much. My name is Adeolu can I know your
    name?” She giggled and said. “My name is Tope.”
    As we both smiled at each other like teens gripped in some
    high school crush. So I left the place hoping to return the
    following day. I got to my rented room and I was still
    thinking of Tope.
    She was average height, dark skinned and very attractive.
    Her curves were at the right angle and her bursts were an
    eye candy.
    I knew I needed companion to quench my lust while I served
    my country in the beautiful state of Kogi and Tope just
    happened to fit into the picture. Being a nerd and a slacker
    isn’t a thing to be proud of. I had only had s*x once, thanks
    to Seun who took me clubbing then some chic agreed to get
    down with me and at the end made me pay N4,000…That
    wasn’t funny. I felt I needed to lay claim of my very own pet,
    a decision I soon regret.
    The following day I went to the canteen, but this time around
    I went there late.
    Unfortunately food had finished, but the good thing was that
    Tope had time to spare. She was busy preparing to wash the
    dishes and I didn’t hesitate to assist her.
    She didn’t want me to get my hands dirty but I insisted. I
    helped her in getting water and she was
    thrilled that a corper would stoop so low helping
    her with the dishes. Well, why wouldn’t I, itgranted me the
    avenue to view her heavy kegs that
    jiggled as she was washing the dishes. Suddenly her mother
    appeared from a distance, Tope sighted her and she said to
    me.
    “Please hide, don’t let her see you.”

    Episode 2

    I then hid behind the canteen and after about 15 minutes
    she left the place. Tope then came to meet me and said.
    “Sorry about it.”
    I then said. “Its’s okay, no sweat. Your mom is strict right?”
    She said. “No she’s not. I am preparing for JAMB exams and
    seeing me with a guy would upset her”.
    I then said to her. “Then why are you here working in the
    canteen? You should be attending lessons now”. She said.
    “My elder sister is not feeling too fine and she’s the one in
    charge of the canteen. Yesterday was my first day here” I
    asked her. “What course do you intend to study?” She said.
    “Biochemistry.”
    I said to her. “I finished with a first class in Chemical
    Engineering. if you need any assistance I will be glad to help
    you.”
    She said. “Wow, that will be nice. I have a problem with
    chemistry and physics. You must be a genius! ” I laughed
    and said. “No I am not, I just love to read my books a lot. It
    takes hard work and persistence to be successful.
    My dad is a Professor and my mom is a Judge, they really
    encouraged me”.
    We finished cleaning up and I decided to walk her home
    which she agreed. As we walked, we talked about our
    families and she opened up about the challenges she faced
    gaining admission, being the only child amongst her siblings
    privileged to attend higher institution. I was so bent in
    making her pass her JAMB and I promised her I would teach
    her through.
    I convinced her to tell her mom she needed to prepare for
    her exams and that she won’t be able to continue with the
    running of the canteen.
    The mom eventually succumbed and she got a replacement.
    I made an arrangement with Tope, for her to be coming to
    my place 4:00pm Mondays to Fridays and 1:00pm on
    Saturdays, which she agreed.
    My intentions were sincere, but with a little thoughts of side
    attractions. In spite of being attracted to her, I wanted her
    more than anything to pass her JAMB exams this time
    around…

    Episode 3

    Her first day at my place was an amazing one. She brought
    me rice, dodo and 3 pieces of meat. I was really touched
    and I felt she truly cared for me. The most enthralling thing
    she did again was, she washed all my dirty clothes, including
    my boxers and she swept my room and arranged my stuffs.
    No lady had done such to me except my mom. I was moved
    by that and felt more obliged to her.
    We couldn’t do any reading that day. So I walked her home
    around 6:30pm. I got to my room and it looked quite
    different. Neat and very organized. I laid on my neatly made
    bed and I thought to myself. “Is it possible something real
    can happen between Tope and I??” But I considered the
    years she would spend in the University and all.
    She came the following day. This time she wore a fitted
    gown. I Knew I was going to be in trouble if I don’t seldom
    caution myself. I then told her to list out the most difficult
    topics she was facing. I put her through and she was quite
    intelligent in grasping, I was really impressed by her keen
    interest in understanding.
    After studying she then looked at me and said. “How is your
    girlfriend?” I laughed and said. “Tope I don’t have a
    girlfriend.” She said. “I don’t believe you.” I then said to her.
    “Tope, I am not lying to you. Girls don’t find me attractive,
    it’s not that I am good looking. Even while in school, I never
    had the chance to date any girl I admired.”
    She said. “adeoluwa , I know you are special I saw it in your
    eyes the first time we met at my mom’s canteen. You are a
    special man.”

    Episode 4

    I was moved by what she said. No lady had ever said that
    thing to me before. I began to feel for her and that was
    when I started to really care for her. She looked at my feet
    and said. “Aaah.. Adeoluwa. Look at your toe nails. Don’t you
    cut them?”
    I felt a bit embarra*sed and said. “No now… They are hard
    and my nail cutter is missing. I will get another one in town.”
    She then said. “Do you have a razor blade?
    Let me help you cut it.”
    I said. “No oo.. Please I don’t like using razor on me, it could
    cut me.”
    She then said. “Trust me.”
    I got her the razor blade and she meticulously cut my toe
    nails neatly. She then took a napkin soaked with water and
    she cleaned my feet. No lady had shown me much
    compassion and care.
    Immediately I erased the lustful thoughts I had on her and I
    decided to do everything to make her succeed in her JAMB
    exams.
    Our friendship grew and I found out how remarkable she
    was. I began to love her but I fought really hard not to reveal
    it to her. I respected her and I knew she was a good lady and
    I didn’t want to start something I couldn’t finish. I was aware
    we both had feelings for each other, but I was afraid it will
    lead to nowhere and also I didn’t want to make a promise I
    couldn’t fulfill. It was a tough decision for me, cause I had to
    fight every temptation that came my way.
    She was really improving in her preparations towards her
    examination. She was able to solve all the difficult problems
    she once faced and I was proud she was making a headway.
    The JAMB exams came and she smashed it. She scored 250
    and I bought her a wrist watch for doing so good.
    It was friday night around 9:30pm. I heard a knock on the
    door and it was Tope. I was really surprised seeing her there
    and I said to her. “Why are you out this late?”
    She said. “I told my mom I was going for Vigil.”
    I then said. “Come in, you lied to your mom abi?” She
    couldn’t answer me.
    I made her noodles and she ate. We both laid down on the
    bed, I knew what I feared the most was revealing its head. I
    had just my boxers on and I don’t like sleeping with much
    clothes on.
    She then said. “Do you have water in the bathroom, I want
    to shower.”
    I then knew that night was going to be an intriguing one. I
    said. “Yes there’s water in the bathroom. You can use this
    towel it’s clean.” She took the towel and went into the
    bathroom…

    Episode 5

    I didn’t have condoms with me and it was late to get one.
    After about 15 minutes she then came out from the
    bathroom wrapped in my towel. She then put off the light
    switch and laid beside me.
    She apparently didn’t have any clothes on. Before I could
    say jack…. My erection had manifested. But I vowed not to
    make the first move. About 10 minutes passed and no move
    was made.
    She then rested her head on my chest and put her left laps
    on my leg. And I thought to myself. “If we spend the night
    like this it won’t be bad.” I then put my left hand on her left
    shoulder and began to fondle her shoulder a bit. Next thing I
    felt was a grip on my joystick. She said. “I have never held
    one before. You are the first and you will be the last. I love
    you Adeoluwa I came to give you my body, please be easy
    on me, I am still a virgin.” I was put in a dilemma, I wanted
    her and I didn’t want her at the same time. I couldn’t think of
    what to say to her than. “Tope I love you too.” It escaped me
    quickly before my thoughts. I was letting my heart speak not
    my head. I damned the consequences of tomorrow and
    embraced the pa*sion of now. I had just less than a month
    to wrap of my service year and I needed to hold on to
    something to linger in the archives of my memories. She
    began to kiss my chest, sending electronic signals to my
    s*xual hormones. Unleashing the demon within me. She
    kept on kissing and using her lips to clinch my Tips, that was
    the last straw that broke the camels back. I then took charge
    and laid her on her back. I s----d her Tips tenderly and
    caressively, she moaned embracing my head while at it.
    Although I had read about it in books: How to deflower a
    virgin. With no practical experience I knew it was going to be
    a long night. While I was sucking her Tips my right hand was
    fondling her region. She was so wet with slimy stuff, but I
    didn’t mind. I knew I had to fondle with that place too.
    So I later decided to put one finger inside her honey well. It
    was really a difficult task and I didn’t know where the orifice
    was, not that I could put on the light and search for it. In the
    quest of ransacking the opening, I put my finger in her butt.
    Hole, she then said. “Ah adeoluwa that’s my anus………

    Episode 6

    Raise your finger up a bit…. No a little bit down….Yes there.”
    She directed me to the spot but it didn’t seem like an
    opening. I then applied little pressure in putting the tip of
    my finger inside, She closed her eyes and said. “Be careful, it
    hurts a bit.” The tip of my finger finally got in, so I started
    taking it in and out continuously. She then said.
    “Adeoluwa please I want you on top of me. I need you to do
    the real thing.” I then said. “It would hurt, I don’t want to
    hurt u.”
    She then said. “You deserve it adeoluwa I love you.” I
    couldn’t decline her, so I mounted on her and I said. “Tope
    you have to help out here, you have to use your hand to
    align it to the position.”
    She then assisted me to it. My cap was just on the surface of
    her v***na. I then started to apply little pressure on it. I
    really didn’t want her to feel much pain. She then said.
    Adeoluwa just do it….Just do it.”
    I couldn’t push it in, I felt it was gong to hurt, it was just so
    tight. While I use still applying pressure she then tilted her
    waist towards me, causing an abrupt intrusion. She
    screamed and held me tight. There was a snap inside of her,
    I felt it. I knew it was better I remained inside of her.
    It was very obvious she was in extreme pain, I could tell by
    the grip she had in her embrace. She then said. “Continue
    Adeoluwa, continue. Don’t stop no matter what.” I then
    started thrusting… She closed her eyes pretty tight trying to
    bear every pain she perceived. I get sorry for her but happy
    for myself.
    The feeling inside of her was soothing and mind blowing.
    Her tightened grip on me enthralled me to an ecstasy I had
    never experienced before.
    After about 10 minutes I climaxed inside of her. It was so
    compelling I had to lie on top of her and remained inside till
    I shrunk out of her. I then put on the light and the bed sheet
    was stained with blood, it was a gory sight. she helped
    removed it and washed it that night. We both showered and
    laid on the mattress and started talking. I said to her. “What
    came over you?”
    She said. “My friend Bimpe got deflowered last week by a
    guy that never truly loved her. She gave it to him because
    she wanted him to stay. But I gave it to you because you are
    truly caring, loving and supporting. I have written JAMB
    exams 4 times and because of you I made it this time.
    My life would have be nothing without you.” I said to her.
    “Tope, I truly care about you. But don’t you think that was
    too extreme?” She said. “It had to be you. It would have
    been with a guy that doesn’t deserve it. We have known each
    other for 3 months and you never asked for it. I have no
    regrets Adeoluwa Even though we don’t end up together.”
    I then said. “You are sweet girl Tope.” She said. “One more
    thing.” I said. “What?” She then said. “We have to do it one
    more time in the morning, my friend told me the more I do
    it the more I enjoy it. I need to enjoy you Adeoluwa I know
    you are finishing service soon and I won’t see you again.
    Please let me have the privilege.”
    I pondered for a while and I said. “Okay Tope, no problem.”
    We had s*x that morning, though she was in pain but she
    bore it all because of me, because of her love, her
    commitment, her pa*sion for me. I knew in my heart that if
    her circumstances was a bit better I would vow to marry her
    against all odds. I loved her…………

    Episode 7

    I loved her and I became so fond of her. We became more
    carnal and grew in
    intimacy.
    Everyday we engaged in lascivious delight and Tope began
    to enjoy the pleasurable ecstasy each time we entangled in
    the salacious act.
    After my service year had ended, I decided to stay
    back for a week so as to bid farewell to Tope. I knew
    everything we had was going to end as soon as I departed
    from Kogi state, and she knew that too. She couldn’t help but
    cry all through the last few days I spent with her. I felt for
    her, I was moved but I couldn’t change what fate had put
    before us.
    The day I was leaving, she saw me off to the garage. As I
    waited for the vehicle to be filled, she was sobbing
    inordinately, her face covered in tears and her nose
    licking…. It was a sorry sight, I hugged her close and she
    cried out loud.
    “Noo… My life! My life! Oh God why?” I said to her. “Tope it’s
    okay baby, I will miss you dearly.” She then said. “What will I
    do now? Where will I start from? I cannot love anybody
    again. oh God please…” I was able to calm her down and she
    stopped sobbing. We had already created a scene and
    people were beginning to say things. I then said to her.
    “Tope, please I need you to have this money, it is N12,000
    get a good phone so we can
    keep in touch.” She said. “Of what good will it be adeoluwa?
    When I know I cannot have you forever.”
    Hmmmmmmmmm….

    Episode 8

    I then said. “Please Tope, I just need to know how you are
    faring, to know if I can help you with anything, to hear your
    sweet voice again.
    Please Tope it means a lot to me.” She took the money and
    she started sobbing again and she said. “Good bye adeoluwa
    , good bye…”
    As she ran away in tears. I stood and watched her fade away
    in sight. I had tears in my eyes and felt an emptiness within.
    The vehicle got filled and I embarked on my journey to
    Lagos.
    As I journeyed I reflected on the sweet moments Tope and I
    shared. I then realized they were the best times of my life
    and I felt privilege to have had such memories.
    I got home and met my family, everyone was happy to see
    me again. I sure did miss home and all the comforts, but
    nothing compared to Tope, whom I missed dearly. I knew I
    would probably not see her again and everything we had
    would only linger in thoughts till they grow dim with time.
    A week passed and I didn’t hear from Tope, as I suspected. I
    knew she must have taken the decision to stay aloof, it must
    have been very hard on her. I had no option than to move
    on and face the reality before me.
    Through my mom’s connection, I was able to secure a very
    profitable job in one of the biggest oil companies in Nigeria,
    in just 3 weeks after my youth service….

    Episode 9

    The company made arrangements for me to travel to the U.S
    for a 10 months managerial course. I only wished I could tell
    the good news to Tope, but there was no means, she didn’t
    have a phone, she wasn’t on social media and not even an
    email account, Few days later I traveled to Texas, U.S.
    It was a wonderful learning experience and I was well taken
    care of. I met people from different parts of the world and I
    had a great time. At the end of the exercise, I returned back
    to Nigeria and the following day I was assigned to the
    position of an assistant manager.
    I had my own office and desk, it was too good to be true. My
    salary was wow!! My life was beautiful. After 3 months of
    working I was able to acquire a brand new car. I could afford
    any luxury that I wanted.
    My fashion changed, I got lots of cool natives and suits,
    expensive wrist watches, perfumes… I didn’t know how to
    spend my money, every month it kept on growing in
    numbers and since I wasn’t really an out going type with
    only few friends I had a huge savings.
    A former course mate at the University was having a
    wedding. I was invited and I felt it was a very good
    opportunity for me to meet up with good old friends. I came
    late for the church wedding so I took a back seat and shortly
    after the church ceremony ended and we all dispersed to
    the reception not too far away.
    At the reception I took a secluded seat. I never really liked to
    mingle and I decided to just observe from a distance. I saw
    lots of old faces that made me smile. It was really good
    seeing their happy faces again. But a face I would never
    forget was Ella’s.
    I had a major crush on Ella for 2 sessions and a semester,
    until she and Osas started dating shortly before we all
    graduated. Ella never reciprocated the feelings and it was
    difficult to open up to her. She’s a beautiful fair skinned lady
    and very decent. She was into crafts: She made beads,
    shoes, bags and cloths. She carved out a name for herself on
    campus.
    I was so pleased to see everyone smiling and having a good
    time. I was busy with my phone and next thing, I looked up
    and I saw Ella coming my way. My heart beat began to
    accelerate faster as she approached me. She had a smile on
    and I knew I was in trouble. She pulled out a seat on my
    table and sat down, she then said. “Look who we have
    here… Mr Loner.
    You haven’t really changed have you?” I said. “Hi Ella, so
    good to see you.” She then said. “oh adeoluwa The guy I
    liked so much but never had the balls to walk up to me.” I
    said. “Wait…You don’t mean it.” She said. “You never knew I
    liked you? Why did you think I was always in your cla*s
    hanging with Chioma?” I then said. “Oh my God… But you
    ended up dating Osas now?” She then said. “You are pathetic
    adeoluwa .
    If you knew how long I came around your class hoping you
    would act. You know, I knew you have always been serious
    minded, focused and very dedicated. You were not just man
    enough.” I then said to her. “Are you still with Osas?” She
    said. “Osas and I broke up during service year, he wasn’t
    serious at all.” I the said. “Is it too late, Ella?”
    She laughed and shook her head. Adeoluwa you are still
    pathetic. You haven’t changed but it’s still cute though.” I
    then asked her. “How about your craft business?” She said.
    “It’s doing well, I use my house for now but I really need a
    place because sometimes I get large orders and no space to
    work.
    I am thinking of getting a job so I can save up to get a place
    for my business.” I then said. “Okay…. Ella, I know I messed
    up in the past. I am sorry about that, I was very shy and
    immature. I have really changed, trust me on this. I have
    always admired you, always patronize your crafts even
    though I never needed them. If There’s nobody you are
    seeing, please consider me. I am begging you.”…

    Episode 10

    She then said. “Aww… How sweet. you know what? Let me
    have your number. Meanwhile, let’s go meet up with our
    friends over there.”
    I then gave her my business card and she was like “Wow!!
    Adeoluwa , you here. I have always known you were special”
    After the reception, I dropped her home and when I got
    home I called her and we spent over an hour talking on the
    phone. We kept on talking for long over the week and the
    prospect of Ella and I starting a relationship grew by the day.
    We decided to fix a date the following weekend and we
    chose Saturday. So on that day we went to a nice restaurant
    to have lunch. We cracked school jokes and talked about old
    times… It was a wonderful moment. I then asked her. “Ella
    about your business. How much will it cost you to relocate
    and restructure your business?” She said. “Well, it will cost
    me N350,000.” I then reached out to my small bag and
    brought out my cheque book.
    Then she said Adeoluwa. What do you think yo are doing?” I
    told her. “I am writing you a cheque of N350,000? She then
    said. “I can’t take it, I am sorry, I just can’t take it.” I said. “Its
    a loan, you can pay me when you ready to.” She said. “How
    much interest?” I then said. “N1 ” she laughed, hugged me
    and that was it. I really wanted to do something very
    important in her life, so she would know that I was very
    concerned about her future. When I got home my mom
    called. She wanted to know my next move.
    Obviously marriage, I told her about Ella and she wanted to
    see her the following weekend. I then told Ella if she would
    like to pay my home a visit and meet my family. She
    delightfully welcomed it.
    She came over and my mom really liked her. They talked for
    over an hour and I even felt left out. It was a good thing. She
    had lunch with us and she also helped in washing the
    dishes, my mom was so proud of her, even though it was
    their first meeting.
    After I had dropped Ella off at her place I got back home and
    my mom called me. She said.
    “Ella is a good lady, she will make an awesome wife. She’s
    creative, she’s got her own business, she’s going to have
    time to run and maintain her home, have time for the kids. I
    mean what else do you need?” I said. “I know Ella is
    wonderful.” She then said. “When are you proposing to her?
    you better do it soon. before someone else does.” I then
    said. “Well, we will be traveling to Calabar in 3 weeks, for her
    friends wedding. I think that when I will do it.”

    Episode 11

    My mom said. “Good make sure you do your thing.” Ella and
    I became so close, I went to see her family and they gave me
    a warm welcome, her siblings were so friendly… Things were
    getting more and more interesting.
    We travelled to Calabar for the wedding. I had with me the
    engagement ring and I was praying she would say yes, a part
    of me was sure…
    She decided we stay in different hotel rooms because she
    told me she was still a Virgin that she needed to keep till that
    special night, I felt so lucky…
    After the church ceremony at the reception, I gave someone
    my phone to make sure he captured the moment. I then
    called Ella’s attention.
    “Ella.”
    As I knelt down with the ring. She said. “Oh my God…” I then
    asked. “Will you marry me?” She covered her eyes and
    screamed. “Yes!! I will.” To my surprise, people around were
    clapping and that made me very uncomfortable. After the
    event we headed back to our hotel rooms and I called my
    mom telling her the good news.
    My mom was really glad. That night, I went on Facebook to
    post the proposal picture. I noticed I had several unread
    mails so I took my time to read them. There was one mail
    that took my attention the most.
    The sender didn’t have a profile picture so I went ahead to
    read the mail.
    It said. “Please are you the Adeoluwa that served in Kogi
    over a year ago? please call this number ********** Tope.”
    I felt very disturbed and I called the number immediately.
    Unfortunately the phone was switched off. I checked when
    the message was sent and it was about 4 months ago.
    I got back to Lagos and kept on trying the number with no
    success. On Wednesday morning it rang. I waited to hear the
    voice and it was Tope’s. I then said. “Oh Jesus,
    Tope I just saw your mail are you okay?”
    She began to sob. “adeoluwa please come and help me. I
    need your help now more than ever….”
    I then said. “I don’t get you Tope is everything alright?”
    She said. “Nothing is alright, please come I need your help.”
    I then said to her. “I am at work now,
    I won’t be chanced to travel.” She then said. “How about
    Saturday it’s very important .” The line then went off.
    Memories of Tope came back, I was confused and very
    bothered about her situation. I kept on calling but the phone
    was switched off. I then sent a text message to her. telling
    her I would be coming on Saturday, but will leave on Sunday
    morning because I had to prepare to travel to Port Harcourt
    on Wednesday on an official assignment.
    She responded the following day with the address and her
    location. I had made arrangements with a driver to take me
    there with my car and I told Ella I was going on a business
    meeting at Abuja. I left very early in the morning and I got
    there around 11:30am.
    The location was a church far inside the town, it wasn’t easy
    locating it. I saw Tope by the gate of the church, standing.
    She looked pale and mucky, she had lost weight and she
    looked very unpleasant and troubled. I came down from the
    car and she ran towards me. She embraced me and said.
    “Oh adeoluwa ….” As she wept deeply.
    I held her back by her shoulders and said. “Tope… Please
    talk to me what is wrong?” She then said. “Come to the
    church with me and you will know everything.”…

    Episode 12

    She held my hand and led me into the church. I didn’t know
    what to think or expect, I just needed to know what was
    wrong with her.
    We got into the church and what caught my eyes was the
    sight of children playing on a mat spread on the floor. Then I
    said. “Okay Tope we are in the church, tell me what is going
    on? And why did you decide to blank me out completely?
    She said. “I thought it was the right decision, ending
    everything we started 2 years ago. But I was wrong and I am
    sorry.”
    I then said. “Okay, now tell me why are you not in school? Is
    your mother okay?” She then gushed out in tears. It was
    becoming irritating and I grew impatient and….. I heard a
    tiny voice of a kid saying. “Mummy sorry.”
    The little boy then embraced her by her leg and she carried
    him up. I was shocked the baby looked very much like me
    when I was little…. He had the shape of my eyebrows and
    my droopy eyes. I then stuttered. “Is… That your child?” As
    sweat began to drip from my face. She then replied sobbing.
    “This is our Adeoluw ….This is our son.”
    I then said. “How come, how is it possible?” She said. “He is 2
    years old, you are the only man I have slept with, he even
    looks like you.”
    I then said. “Oh my God!” As I sat down on a bench because
    my knees became weary. “Tell me everything Tope.” She
    said. “3 weeks after you left Kogi. I became ill and I was
    vomiting. My mom then asked me if I was seeing any man. I
    told her no. She took me to see the doctor, he ran some
    tests and the result was that I was pregnant. My mom beat
    me in the hospital with her slippers. When we got home, she
    threw my stuffs out and disowned me. I went to meet my
    closest relative and in spite of all the pleas my mom refused
    to take me back……” As she started sobbing. I held her hand
    tight to comfort her and said. “Continue.”
    She then said. “My relatives insisted I tell them who was
    responsible, but I refused. I didn’t want to implicate you and
    I know you didn’t mean it. You have always wanted to help
    me. So I did not tell them. 4 months later, they started
    maltreating me and I then decided to leave. A pastors wife
    took me in and I was there for 1 year. That was were I gave
    birth to junior and worked with the church’s primary
    school”. I then said. “You mean this church?” She said. “No, I
    came to this church about 6 months ago. I had to leave the
    other place, the pastor made some advances on me, I
    reported to the wife and she threw me out. I have been here
    since. It’s been terrible Adeoluwa ….”She began to cry out.
    My mind was heavy and I knew I had to do something about
    her situation. She suffered because of me, her education,
    her family. I felt so much indebted to her. I then said.
    “Tope, I know everything can’t be okay, but I will do
    everything possible to make sure you get the best in life.
    God has blessed me with a good job and money is not a
    problem. I will get you an apartment here in Kogi and every
    month I will send you N200,000 for you and Junior.”

    Episode 13

    She then said. “His name is Adeoluwa.” I took a pause and
    looked at him, he was already asleep. I didn’t know whether
    to touch him, carry him or something. I was just too
    unprepared for these before me.
    She then said. “I cannot stay here in Kogi.” I then said. “Then
    where do you want to stay?
    You can’t come with me to Lagos”
    She said. “adeoluwa , I have nobody, nobody. I have been
    rejected by my family, friends and relatives. The only person
    I have is you and my baby. I can’t stay far away from you,
    Please.”
    I said. “Tope, a lot has happened these few years. I have
    moved on and you being close could affect everything my
    mother has established for me, everything I have worked
    hard for recently. It can destroy me Tope.”
    She then said. Adeoluwa , I understand but I need someone
    to run to, someone to depend on. I will never interfere in
    your life again. I just need a new place to start all over, I
    don’t want my baby to go through what I went through. I
    need to further my education, you helped me once and I
    know you can help me again. I can’t provide for and protect
    our child Adeoluwa……
    I started to reflect on everything she said. I looked at the
    child, my child and I felt so sorry. I knew I can’t deny them
    solace, cant deny them what they want. That’s my blood
    she’s talking about. I was hasty in conclusion.
    I looked at my watch and it was almost 1 pm. I then said.
    “Tope, if we have to go to Lagos we have to go now. Go pack
    your things, I will be waiting in the car.”
    It took us about 5 hours to get to Lagos. I lodged them in a
    hotel and handed her N50,000 in case she needed anything
    urgent that night. I then left for home. I avoided everyone
    and went straight to my room. I was very unsettled and
    completely in distress.
    Ella had been calling me but I was too weak to pick her calls.
    The following day, I drove to pick Ella so we could go to
    church. She noticed I was not myself and she asked me.
    “What is wrong Adeoluwa ? you have been acting strange.”
    I said to her. “I am pretty ill, but I will be fine.” I insisted it
    was a flu.
    After church service, I dropped Ella at her place and I went
    home to get some stuffs for Tope and Junior. I got Tope a
    new Phone and Junior, some of my old toys and lots of
    candies. I got to their hotel room and she appeared more
    relaxed. Next thing I heard was. “Daddy!!”.
    I saw the excitement on his face, it sent a cold chill through
    my spine. Then Tope said. “Junior, come on stop that. He is
    uncle not Daddy.” He then said. “uncle!”
    I smiled, for he looked so adorable. I gave him his goodies
    and he said. “Thank you uncle.”
    I was amazed and there was this urge inside of me to spend
    time with him.
    I then said. “Tope, try and relax today, tomorrow you will go
    shopping with Junior.
    Here is N150,000 for you 2. The driver will come tomorrow
    in the morning, he will also help open an account for you as
    well. I have told him to secure an apartment for you in a
    very good environment. It will take you guys 3 days at most
    to furnish and set up the place to your taste.”
    She then said. “Are you not going to be around?” I said. “I
    told you I will be traveling this week and will be very busy. I
    may not see you till I return from my trip. But I will always
    call you….”

    Episode 14

    She took a deep breath in and was downcast. I then said. “I
    know you have suffered because of the decisions we made
    in the past. I cannot erase the past but by God’s grace, I can
    make your future and Junior’s better. You will write JAMB
    again, you will pa*s and you will gain admission, junior will
    go to the best schools and he will make us proud. But you
    need to keep to your word. And I will keep to mine.” I then
    hugged her then I left.
    At home in my room, I was deep in thoughts. I was
    wondering if this my plight will remain secret. Ella and I had
    our wedding penned in a few months, our families are
    involved and the planning had begun. Days later, I was in
    Port Harcourt and I was kept abreast about the progress
    being made regarding Tope’s accommodation. I was very
    impressed at the development. I just wanted her to have a
    place she could call home and raise our child.
    Ella noticed something different about me and I was tired of
    giving her the excuse that I was ill. I later told her I
    developed cold feet regarding our planned wedding. That I
    will be fine. I returned to Lagos after my official a*signment
    and the first place I went to was Tope’s new apartment.
    I made sure it was a far from my place to avoid any trouble.
    I got to her door and I rang the bell. She then opened the
    door.
    She was looking more gorgeous than ever. She had her hair
    done, her nails, she even added little weight. She had a
    smile on and I just stood there looking at Tope…. She had a
    bum shorts on, with a half top. She was amazingly s*xy, I
    just couldn’t help but stand there and look or should I say
    lust on her.
    She said. “Are you going to stand there?” I said. “Oh sorry.”
    As I entered the apartment. The sitting room was beautiful
    with a touch of different shades of purple. I was very
    impressed by her choice of taste and luxury. I knew she had
    it in her… She then said. “I know you must be hungry.” I said.
    “Yes, I am starving but where is Junior?” She said. “He’s
    asleep, come let me serve you dinner.” She sat me down on
    the dining section and she served me a dish.
    I opened it and what I saw took me through memory lane. It
    was rice, dodo and 3 pieces of meat. Just like the old days. I
    looked at her and she was all smiling. Flash backs began to
    usher in my thoughts, visualizing faded images in my
    memory that was once clouded. I began to fill a little spark.
    After the lovely meal, she started taking me round her
    beautiful apartment, and the last place we stopped was her
    room. It looked cozy and very calm. She then stood before
    me and said. “Remember the first night we spent together?” I
    said. “Yes I remember. How can I forget?” We both stood
    there looking at each other.
    All I could see was a lady I once loved with all my heart and
    she buttressed my thoughts with a touch on my face. Her
    hand on my face felt like those times. I heard voices in my
    head. “Kiss her!!.” repeatedly.
    Then I kissed her, she kissed me back and we started kissing
    aggressively. I pulled off her shirt and her Tips… Oh my God!
    … I had missed them. I haven’t been intimate with anybody
    else and my cup was more than full.
    To Be Continued…

    Episode 15

    I grabbed unto her B---m and I began to suck her Tips. She
    then said. “Oh adeoluwa, there hasn’t been anybody else
    apart from you. No one has touched me and no one will but
    you. Take me adeoluwa ” I was unbuttoning my shirt and she
    was pulling her bum shorts… We were Unclad and kissing,
    catching up from where we stopped years ago. I then
    inserted into her, she moaned. She was so wet and creamy.
    That feeling, that same feeling, everything was coming back
    to me. We made love not s*x, it was love. When we were
    done she said. “Oh adeoluwa , you released in me again.” I
    then said. “Oh sh*t, I am sorry.” She then laughed and said.
    “It’s okay, I am safe. My ovulation had passed.” We both laid
    down on our backs in silence. She then broke the silence
    and said. “Is she more beautiful?” I then said. “Come on
    Tope. Please.” She said. “Is she better than me? Does she
    satisfy you like the way I do?” I said. “I am afraid, I can’t
    answer you.” She then asked. “Do you still love me?” I said. “I
    can never stop loving you Tope.” She said. “Then why can’t
    you marry me?” I then said. “My family and her family are
    already involved.” She said, “I love you with my life, and I
    understand you have moved on. I cannot ask you to leave
    her for me.I want to ask you one Question adeoluwa. Will
    you choose to marry a lady you love or a lady you are trying
    to love?’”
    I then said. “If I am left with that choose I will choose you.
    But I told you, our families are already involved.” She then
    said. “Am I not worth fighting for?”
    I became bewildered and completely helpless. I couldn’t
    answer her question. so we slept off. In the middle of the
    night she woke me up by sucking my manly, I was
    completely lured and ignited. Overwhelmed by the flame of
    passion I grew. She then posed in a doggy position and her
    bum was just right in front of me. I stood to mount on her
    and rammed into her till we were both wasted.
    The following morning, I left for home. Unfortunately I met
    Ella at my place, she was seated in the sitting room and my
    mom was comforting her. She was in tears. My mom then
    asked me. “Where are you coming from Adeoluwa ? Your
    chairman said you guys arrived last night” I said. “A friend of
    mine was having a party so I had to attend.”
    My mom then said. “Is that why you switched off your
    phones adeoluwa ?”
    I told her. “My batteries ran down.” My mom then said to
    Ella. “You see everything is fine, I told you….

    Episode 16 (Final)

    My mom then said to Ella. “You see everything is fine, I told
    you.” I then went to my room and Ella followed. I had to
    pretend to be happy with her to erase the doubts she was
    having, so we played board games and watched TV. When it
    was dark I dropped her off and came back home. I was
    going to my room and my mom called me. She said. “I gave
    birth to you, I nurtured you, I took you to the best schools in
    the country. I made you you got the best job a graduate can
    have. I have always looked out for your interest. I am your
    mother and I have been good to you since the day you were
    born. Now adeoluwa , tell me the truth. What is going on?”
    At that moment I knew I couldn’t keep it within me. I told me
    mom. I told her everything that happened. She then said. “I
    am totally disappointed in you. I brought you up well, only
    for you to be bewitched by that girl. I blame your father for
    making you serve in Kogi state. Now adeoluwa , you will take
    me to where you are housing them.”
    I sad. “Now? It’s late mom.”
    She said. “Now Adeoluwa . And who else knows about this? ”
    I said. “Nobody just us.”
    She then said. “It is going to remain that way.” Her driver
    then took us to Tope’s apartment. I knocked and Tope
    opened the door and said.
    “Sweety, I was just …….” My mom said. “Who is your
    sweety?”
    Tope was scared to her teeth and she said. “Sorry mummy, I
    didn’t see..”
    My Mom said. “Don’t call me mummy. Your mother
    disowned you because of your treachery.”
    We all stepped into the apartment. My mom then said. “Do
    you know who I am?”
    Tope said. “No ma”
    My mom sad. “I am a Judge in Lagos. I can make life very
    complicated for you if you try to destroy what I have spent
    almost all the years of my life to build.”
    Next thing Junior walked into the sitting room and cried out.
    “Mummy, Mummy …” He stood still as he saw the crowd.
    My mom saw him and said. “Oh my God, Adeoluwa !!” As she
    held my hand tight. There was silence for a minute. Then my
    mom said. “The deed has been done, but if you truly love
    my son you will have to let him go. I was very angry but now
    I don’t have to show it because of him. He is innocent and
    does not have to suffer from your recklessness. I will make
    arrangements for you 2 to relocate to the UK. That is were
    you will spend the rest of your lives. You will have to get
    your educational documents and necessary documents for
    that effect. Tomorrow, you will leave for Abuja and you both
    will stay there till your visas are ready.”
    Tope was just sobbing and didn’t utter a word. My mom then
    said. “My personal assistant will come tomorrow morning to
    facilitate the arrangements. This is the best I can do not for
    you, but for him Adeoluwa you have 2 minutes, I will be
    waiting in the car.”
    She left for the car and I stood there looking at Tope. I then
    said. “I fought for us Tope and now see what it has led? I
    don’t think I will ever see you again. Good bye Tope.” I then
    looked at Junior, I carried him one last time,kissed his cheek
    andt blessed him. I dropped him down and headed to the
    car.
    We got home and no word was uttered between my mom
    and I.
    The following morning I went to work and resumed my my
    life the way it was before I went to see Tope at Kogi. I knew I
    would learn to love Ella But I can’t love her the way I loved
    Tope. But I later came to understand that what transpired
    between Tope and I was lust, lust was the basis of our
    friendship and what reshaped our destinies. Love builds but
    lust destroys.
    Tope lives happily in London, she got enrolled in the
    university and she’s almost done. Junior is almost done with
    his primary education, he loves football and likes to play
    drums. Ella and I are happily married and we have a
    daughter, she’s 2 years and she looks a whole lot like my
    mom. Tope and I still communicate once in a while. She still
    vows to wait for me no matter how long it takes. I know what
    happened was a mistake and it still remains a secret but for
    how long?

    The End.
