At the entrance into the visitor’s room, I heard unclear voices. I thought it was coming from the neighbours because there was a window close by from where I saw people walk and chatter on the street behind the main building.
I felt the urge to turn back at that moment but I didn’t because I could not hold on longer; my bladder was almost giving way for the urine to exit.
“Oops!” I was surprised.
Adeyemi & Yemisi were at the height of lovemaking. It was so intense that they didn’t hear my exclamation. They only disengaged when I knocked on the door loudly. Yemisi tried to bury her face in the pillow which was already at a corner of the bed. Adeyemi was confused; as he picked his boxers, it dropped. He began to babble. I was amused so much that I laughed uncontrollably.
“Sorry, I was just pressed and couldn’t hold it.” I said when I eventually found my voice. I staggered with laughter as I went into the toilet.
I knew the duo of Adeyemi and Yemisi were lost; they didn’t know what to do. I could see Yemisi dressing up through the partly open toilet door. She couldn’t find her brassiere. She was here and there looking for it.
The content of the SMS I got, on the weekend I came visiting, played back in my head as I sat on the toilet seat.
“DON’T LET ADEYEMI & YEMISI DECEIVE YOU. YOU ARE TOO GOOD A PERSON TO BE TREATED BAD BY THAT DOG, ADEYEMI. THEY ARE DATING BIG TIME. YOU ARE LIKE A SISTER TO ME ARODU. IF YOU FIND OUT, BE WISE! ADEYEMI IS DANGEROUSLY STUPID THAN YOU CAN EVER IMAGINE. DON’T BOTHER TO CALL THIS LINE!”
I gave a loud sigh as I cleaned up.
“I hope I haven’t spoilt your secret fun. I am really sorry.” I said as I exited the room.
I sat on a sofa opposite the Television. I switched it on with the remote control. I searched for my mobile phone in my bag.
“Hello, big cousin! Please tell Sherif’s mum to make me dinner. I am sleeping over in your crib sir. I’ll explain when I get to your place.”
Some minutes later, Adeyemi was in the living room. I heard the main exit door close loudly. I peeped through the window before me, it was Yemisi running out of the compound. I smiled.
“Hi!” He smiled fearfully.
“Oh, darling! Good evening” I said as I stood up to hug him. I wrapped my arms around his neck.
“I actually planned to spend 2 weeks of my leave with you; that was why I came in straight from the office” I said sensuously as I held on softly to his ‘thing’.
Adeyemi simply nodded. He was confused. He knew I was unhappy. He felt the touch was just a fake teaser. He didn’t know what to expect next. He knew I was a wise lady. He had never seen me angry. Several thoughts ran through his head. He wanted to say sorry. He wanted to play the big boy. He loved me but he couldn’t check the ugly promiscuity. He held on to me. He pulled me closer and rested his palms on my buttocks.
He tried to caress my breasts. I turned at that instance toward my bags.
“Now, I know I need not to. I shouldn’t have chosen today as my resumption day” I winked with a mocking smile.
“I’ll be on my way. My leave ends in a month. Call me when the coast is clear, I might be available” I picked my bags and turned around.
Adeyemi was lost for words. He stood there looking at me. I walked up to him and gave him a long warm kiss on the lips.
“I’ll miss you” I said as I left for the exit door.
As I journeyed to my cousin’s apartment in a cab, I wondered why most men could be so loose; and why some women don’t know how to say NO. A lot ran through my mind but I was unsure of what next with my relationship with Adeyemi.
I remembered the times I visited him and we engaged in cheap talks; he’d tell me to talk in whispers because he didn’t want people to know he was home. There were times he’d go out at about 6pm and wouldn’t come back until around 1am. He would dress in dark colour outfits and never came back drunk; instead, he was always smelling foul.
I remembered how caring, loving and understanding he could be; but that carried just 25% of what I expected in my man. I concluded that his WRONGs were more than his RIGHTs.
I threw him out of my heart that night.
I loved Adeyemi but…
