MORENIKEJI Episode 21 by Amah’s Heart

“I was very angry with you Keji…

He finally said after breakfast as we sat together in his private sitting room.

Is been 8 days ever since the incident.
This was another morning breakfast we both had together.

He refused me going back to my apartment. Phil said is not safe and his mind won’t be at rest if I go back.

He got another apartment for me in an estate close to his.
It wasn’t ready for me to move in yet so he asked me to stay with him until the apartment is fully set.

For the entire eight days straight that I have been here, I have made different attempt for Phil to go intimate with me but to no avail.
I sleep in the room next to his but he acts like I’m invisible.

Today, while sitting with him, i brought up the topic of how I miss my apartment and would have still be there if not for Bayo.
Phil who has not really scolded me over the entire incident decided to go back to it.

“… As much as I don’t want to go back to what happened but is worth talking about.

He became quiet as he stare at one of the wall paints hanging in his living room.

“I’m really sorry Phil. I never meant for any of that to happen… everything took me by surprise. Like Bayo showing up out of the blues and feeling so entitled to come into my apartment and straight to my kitchen after telling his cock and bull stories. I couldn’t think straight at that moment. I just did the only thing I thought was wise in my eyes…

He remains quiet as his eyes travel to an oil canvas hanging above the television.
He returns his eyes to the music show playing on the TV quietly.

He was not willing to talk as he remains quiet, I continued speaking.

“…I know my life is a mess, so complicated…i really don’t know why things doesn’t always go in my favor. I have so much baggages Phil…i didn’t choose, life just thrust me off and on. Ever since you step into my life is begins to have a meaning…I wouldn’t trade you for anything Phil. I really do appreciate everything you have done and still doing for me. You ha….

He looked at me and interrupted.

“Enough of me Keji, is not about me…is about you. Try to think before making decisions sometime. I mean what if Bayo overpowered you that night and hurt you, what if he succeeded in escaping…gone again with your money. What happened to your bank account that you decided to store such amount at home. I know you will probably say is for emergency reasons which is good and wise… yes, but Bayo could have gotten away with it for the second time, it would have been so foolish of you. My major anger is how you took risk… with a criminal in your apartment and you choose not to tell me. Just…what if something bad has happened to you Keji? I’m angry for different reasons but I have slept over it for days now and moving on but I do want you to know something Keji, we are in a relationship and every wrong decision you makes affect not only you but me too.

He paused, looked at me and back at the wall canvas.
I kept staring at his kssable lips, his pointed nose, his sexy eyes and fresh skin while he speaks.

I was sitting in a different cushion next to his. As I imagine different things in my head I couldn’t help but to start grinning from ear to ear.

I feel very lucky to have Philip.
He looked at me again and asked.

“…Did you get any of what I just said… I’m very serious with my words… this is no child’s play Keji. I wanted our dinner date to be one to remember but it was ruined due to the kind of wrong decisions you made and now I have to restrategies all over again…is not funny Keji. Stop looking at me all over and smiling to yourself. I can bet on what you are thinking but there’s time for everything…

I straightened and apologies.

“Loosen up Phil, I’m sorry… really sorry. I promise it won’t happen again. Let bygones be bygones. I’m only smiling because you look so cute when you are angry…

He shakes his head pathetically while I went on laughing.
He focus on the television.

“You knew Bayo was lying right? How did you know?

I asked while standing and moving closer to him.

“I just knew. It was very obvious that he was lying. His words wasn’t making any sense to me… I’m not stupid to consider any element of truth in what he said.

I sat next to him and placed my hand on his lap daring him to kiss me.
But he was obviously not in the mood.

“Is that the only thing that made you think Bayo was lying…?

He turned and looked at me, curved a smile and said.

“I know what exactly you want to hear Keji. Okay… when he mentioned the size of my manh©©d…and how you complained of not getting satisfied because of the size… You know. If I was in a lighter mood I could have laugh it out but I wasn’t. We haven’t even go that deep… You obviously don’t know what I carry underpants except if you have a microscopic eyes to scan through. Let’s talk about something else Keji. My Dad called me this morning from London…him and my Mom will be going over to visit my uncle. Dad’s younger brother who is based there with his family…my kid sister will be going with them. She can’t get enough of having Dad and Mom aroun…

I interrupted immediately.

“That’s beautiful Phil. I’m glad that your parents are having a great time in London. I want us to return back to our old topic… when are we going to make love like normal couples in relationship do. For days now I have been trying to get you to notice that I’m a lady with need. I really want to know the size of your…stuff..

I pointed a finger where his chairman was relaxing.
He looked at me in a weird way. He probably thinks I’m crazy but I try to leave shyness aside and express myself in that area like I have always wanted to do.

We are more than six months in the relationship. I haven’t been in a relationship that I will stay more than two months with a man and not get laid.

Once I’m in a relationship one of the things I look forward to is the rumbling and cuddling in bed with my man.
Is mostly after a week of been in a relationship that the bedmating begins.
the highest I have stayed without getting to see the action part of my man in bed is two months because the guy in question was a fanatic chuchy type but he later succumb. He couldn’t stay anymore without touching me.

Isn’t love making part of the fun and glows in relationship?

I thought Phil will want to touch me same day we became an item.
We have known each other for way too long before officially going into a relationship. If he had wanted to get down with me same day I could have been happy.
But after few kisses he left. I kept hoping that he will ask but three months went by and he didn’t ask.
Yesterday made us six months and one week in the relationship and yet he doesn’t appear like one ready to take me to cloud nine.

Is a total different thing if I’m not in a relationship but I am with the cuties man alive.
The man that I have never stop fantasizing over, he was my prince charming even before he noticed me. I have desired him way too long before we are finally together.
Now that I have him, he is still restricting himself from me. It means that I don’t fully have him all.
What is the point of our togetherness when we can’t make out like normal people do.

Is love making only for married couple, since we are both adults, love each other what is holding us back again?

Philip does every thing for me but he has refused to receive his rightful reward from me.
I could have given him the satisfaction he needs in bed. Like he has never experienced before in his life.

I can’t hold it in anymore, I need more than just kissing and few touches here and there.
I’m a sexual active lady and there is no sin in boldly acclaiming to this.
I was only patient this months, waiting till the time Phil will be ready but the fine young man does not look like he will be ever ready soon.
Is high time to get him in the mood.
Maybe if I offer it to him he won’t have choice than to accept.
He is probably waiting for me to make the first move.

I kissed his cheeks before standing. He watched me move to the door and make sure it was securely locked.
I cat walked back to him, stood in his front and started unbuttoning my shirt.

“What are you doing?

He asked uncomfortably.

” Isn’t it obvious? I’m trying to $educe you of course. You are always too serious maybe is time to loosen up a bit Phil… let’s spice up our relationship.

I unbuttoned my shirt, threw it to the floor.
I stood with my bra and was about pulling down the short skirt that I wore when he pulled me to sit on his laps

“Who put this dirty ideas in your head? is it Bayo’s words that got you thinking about it or is what you always wanted to do…

“Is not Bayo’s words or anyone’s. I have always wanted you to make the move. I mean I have seen every other side of you except the intimacy part. I have imagined what it will look like Phil, I just can’t wait anymore. I need you to do it if you truly loves me…

He curved a smile as he looked at my well endowed brea$ts still tucked inside the b.ra.
I was making progress and I can see desires in his eyes.
Exactly what I have wanted.
I lift up his head and kssed him fully on the mouth, he responded.
I carried his hand and placed on my brea$ts, asking him to f©ndle it.
His hands remained frozen where I placed it.
I gently bite his ears and whispered he should unh©©ked the b.ra and do whatever he likes with them in his hand.
He didn’t unhook, I quickly did that for him as the whole thing poured into his hand

He moved his hand up and down on them like a robot.
He later removed his hand and placed it on my waist.
I almost sighed out my frustrations.

I lowered my hands to his manh©©d. He flinched a little.
I continued the work, still making progress. He didn’t stop me.

I felt a budge and smile. It was a big one indeed but I still need more confirmation to ascertain what I was seeing under the trouser.
I placed my hand on it, just as my hand make contact with it, he quickly removed my hand.
He pushed me aside, stood up and straightened.

When I thought that I was going to take him to a cl1max he just shifted me aside.
He gasped out before looking at me.
Not at my still bare brea$ts, but fully in the face.

“We can’t always have what we want Keji. Even in freedom I’m still not free to do as I please. I’m bonded to purity, right parental upbringing, self discipline and fear of God Keji. Yes, I know I’m a full grown adult but that doesn’t qualify me to an immoral act. If I live as I please, I will have different women coming and going as they please. I might even have one baby mama somewhere by now if I live without fear of certain things. Me and you wouldn’t have happened, I could have included you in my used and dumped women list and I will have no guilt feeling over that. I choose not to be the happening guy or allow the world to placed me where they want. I’m well exposed, and move around with over exposed guys too but I’m not confirmed to their world. No one force me to do what I don’t want Keji. You will have to wait until I’m ready. I’m not running away, I see no reason for the rush. We’re just six months…not six years. Not having sex won’t kill any of us and having it won’t still add or reduce the way I feel about you. I don’t know if I make any sense to you… Please wear your clothes Keji let’s go out for a swim. You will feel better after a long swim…

He stood waiting for a disappointed me to get ready but all I did was to pick up my bra from the ground and held it in my hand. Still hoping that he will change his mind.
He walked into his room, leaving me alone
He later came out fully on his swimming suit with a towel hanging on his shoulder.

I was still holding my bra without making effort to wear them.
Instead of leaving me to suit myself, he dropped his white towel in a chair and came to me., Collected the bra from my hand, and tries to put it back on for me.
He was finding it difficult in hooking it.

“This thing seems more difficult than I thought. How do you ladies manage to hold it all in, I mean don’t you gets uncomfortable sometimes… I’m almost running out of breath just to put the first hook. Can you help me… please?

He left it, came to my front and bent over. He was obviously trying to cheer me up.

“…I really don’t know what you are thinking right now. But is better not be rejection because I didn’t reject you or your advances, i only want it to happen at the right time Keji. We will get to tear ourselves into pieces in bed if we want but not yet Keji. Your past relationships records probably did things differently than I. It obviously change your orientation about sex and love. I’m not trying to prove any point or to think I’m better off than anyone. I’m just me… I’m super free to do as like but I won’t abuse my freedom to please the entire corrupt minded human race. Stay with me and understand me wholly and you may get to see things in a different points of view.

“Are you a vrgin… have you had any intimacy with a woman before?

I asked him. He stood up, picked up his towel and hanged it back on his shoulder again

“Mmmm……keji. hope I got it right? You are quiet a handful. My vrginity shouldn’t be another topic of discussion today… let’s talk about it next time my love. But be aware that my refusal to get intimate with you has nothing to do with whether i am a vrgin or not. My decision to stay away from sexual intercourse is entirely my choice. Having said that… now can we go? Maybe you will get to tell me the meaning of your name…and the reason behind it if there’s any. C’mon Keji… brighten up let’s go.

I stood, flashed him a smile. Got dressed and we left.
He had a hand to my waist after glancing at my fingers.

“I will pick you up from your catering school on Friday and we can both drive out for a nice time. On Saturday, I want us to have another special dinner date…please try not to ruin this one. I really do want it to be very special just you and I with candle light and roses. Then by tomorrow which is Sunday we can both go over to Chike’s house. Let’s pay them a visit together…what do you think?

I agreed with a full smile.
He sure knows how to get me in a special way.
Phil asked me to tell Ijeoma to bring drinks and whatever I will like to chew by the pool.
He stood waiting for me while I went to the kitchen

After informing Ijeoma, I turned to leave. she said to me.

“This is your moment, but remember it won’t last. You’re just among many other ladies the boss has used and dumped in the past. He’s rich, handsome and well connected so is only normal for ladies like you to want to flock around him like bee. Make good use of your time because the end is near and I will be here when you will come crying blood and I will have the last laugh. The only thing you will ever be to him is a mere girlfriend. The boss is careful with women… especially gold diggers like you so that you don’t trap him with pregnancy. He is an igbo man, his wisdom is follow come…it runs in the blood. You will grow old if you are waiting for him to marry you…it will never happen. The boss has a woman, whom he loves dearly. Amara is his childhood friend that they grew fond of each other and thought it will lead to marriage. But there’s another lady that he doesn’t joke with. You don’t know about her because you aren’t important… even his parents knows about this lady because she is the one they approve for their son. You are just a passer-by. Your presence doesn’t count onye ofe mmanu. Go and get your own Yoruba man and leave our Igbo finest alone. He will never be yours… try everything you can. The boss belongs to another. Okay..bye bye, gaa kwaazie ndi yard unu. (Go and tell your yard people)

I try to smile even in the means of the troubling news Ijeoma gave.

Phil will be waiting for me but I need to give Ijeoma a piece of my heart before leaving

I said to her angrily

“When your boss decide to make me his Queen for life, one of the first thing that i will do is to fire you…i promise you Ijeoma. I will fire you immediately for being a pain in my neck. And be certain that it will happen because very soon I will be pregnant for your boss. He’s a big cat fish, I know his worth without being told. As a smart babe that I am I won’t let him slip off my fingers just like tha….

“What are you talking about Keji? So, I’m a big cat fish… really?

It was Phil. I’m in serious shit.

I swallowed hard and didn’t bother turning immediately.
Ijeoma began to smile mischievously.

She grabbed her opportunity and began to say both the ones I said and what I never said.
Phil shunned her.
I turned quietly to face Phil.
He looks disappointed as he asked Ijeoma to shut up.

“Be quiet Ijeoma, I heard enough of what she said…I don’t need an informant. You need to start learning how to respect Keji, she is not your colleague anymore…. hope you understand that clearly? Keji, please next time use big lion or elephant to refer to me not a cat fish. I don’t even like cat fish….

He smiled to ease my worries as he stretched out his hand towards me.

I can read disappointment in his eyes. He is only being noble because of Ijeoma.

I took his hand and we walked away.

Ijeoma has really pushed me to say what I never meant to say. I was only trying to get back at her. I ended up saying the wrong thing.
Now Phil will think that my main purpose of pressurizing him to get into bed with me is for my selfish reasons.

I don’t know how much he heard but I assumed he heard enough to nail me.

How do I even convince him that I was only blabbing out of anger.
Hope I haven’t ruined another dinner date with Philip because of Ijeoma.

MORENIKEJI Episode 22 by Amah’s Heart

“Will you marry me… please?

He asked on his knees.

What is going on here?
I walked in to a surprised gathering, I haven’t seen Phil for days and thought is better to stop by today and say hello.

Ever since I moved into my apartment, we speak more on phone and he came around ones and didn’t stay for long.
He was begining to act cold towards me.
I don’t know what exactly is the problem but I try to be in my best behavior.

It was a Saturday and spending a cool weekend with my man won’t be a bad idea.
Since I promised to get him more birthday gifts, I took the gifts along with me just to surprise him.

I don’t know the reason for his sudden cold attitude towards me but I will try to spice things up. Make him laugh, take him out on a date if he doesn’t mind.
I know he has the money and has taken me out in the past to several dates before our love life went cold. I will take up the mantle and do the needful.
He hardly call or reply messages. Whenever I told him that I was coming around to see him he will tell me that he is either busy or not at home.

Today I will have to surprise him and find out what the problem is. He will get to tell me what I did wrong if there’s any at all. Except if he is just looking for an excuse to dump me.
God, please don’t let it be what I’m thinking.

My birthday was three weeks ago and he did not remember or wish me a happy birthday. It was my first birthday with him and he didn’t even remember.

But during his own three months ago I was the first to wish him well and even promised him more gifts which I’m took along with me now.
He did nothing during mine.
Something was definitely wrong which I decided to go over today without invitation and talk it out.
I also want to surprise him with the things I got

As I got inside his house and saw the gathering of people I almost stepped back.
Phil never told me that he will be having a house party.
I saw his parents standing and cheering along with the rest of the people.
Philip didn’t inform me that his parents were back from London. Is over two weeks I stepped into this house due to he said that he will let me know when he is free for me to come around.

I was indeed surprised to see everyone. Ijeoma was standing and grinning from ear to ear. Stella had a straight face. She was neither looking happy or sad.

No one even noticed my presence as I entered and there he was on his knees.

“… will you marry me?
He pushed the ring forward and the diamond shun so bright.

I watched in a total shock as she covered her mouth and looked from Phil’s parents to the rest of the people gathered.
They were nodding and some where shouting that she should say yes.

She looked towards me and frowned before returning her look to Phil who was still on his knee.
She stretched out her hand with a nod and he put the ring in her finger. He stood and kissed her fully in the mouth while the crowd cheered loudly.

The items in my hands fell off in shock. “What is really going on here?, I asked no one in particular.

“Is engagement party that is going on… isn’t it very obvious…?

I turned and it was Ijeoma, standing beside me while laughing.

“… did i not tell you to enjoy your moment while it last because the real and recognized lady will soon take over. Hahahaha…look at Nenye, our Igbo bride. Isn’t she beautiful? You don’t need to answer that because jealousy and bitterness won’t let you agree… hahaha. Keji, onye ofe mmanu… who invited you here by the way? The boss was done with you immediately his main woman came in from UK with his parents. It was never in his intentions to marry you at all… you wish in your wildest dream. hahahaha. You are just used as an experiment while he wait for Nenye…our soon to be madam. I told you, I warned you that your charms will fail you and now they have. Isn’t it pathetic to think the only son of a business mogul, professor and one of the wealthy Igbo man will want to settle with a nobody like you. Shoes get size and your size is not here. Go and look for it elsewhere. You could have stick to your kitchen job and stop trying to sell your cheap self to our boss. Atleast he has helped your wretched life, go and enjoy all the money you got from him and leave him the hell alone. If you try to do nonsense or create scene here, the securities will bundle you out and you will never smell near here again…onye ofe mmanu. Hahahaha.. very soon you will be sixty years single and searching woman. Maybe one of your old tribal men may pity your miserable life and make you his seventh wife… my ofe mmanu sister hahahaha…

She laughed and walked away. I angrily went straight to where Phil was kssing and dancing with his supposed wife to be. She was waving her hand and showing off the ring on her finger.

I tapped Phil’s shoulder with tears running down my face.
He turned looked at me strangely like he has never met me.
“Why are you doing this to me, what did I ever do to deserve this shame and ridicule? Phil, why…?

I cried out as tears poured from my eyes as I continued to tap him.
His look was troubling, he was either trying to explain or say something when all of a sudden his woman, Nenye rushed towards me and pushed me hard.
I lost my balance and fell to the floor.
Everyone burst out laughing at me on the ground.
As the engaged Nenye was coming towards me again, Phil tries to stop her but she pushed him aside and came to stand where I fell

“You don’t belong here, go and settle in your class. Get lost…onye ofe mmanuuuuuu….

Suddenly, I looked up at her still in tears because her voice sounded so familiar.
Lo and behold it was Ijeoma standing over me with horns sprouting out of her forehead.
I screamed in fear and awaken.
I sat on my bed, breathing so loud like I ran a marathon.
It was all a dream. God! So it was only a bad night mare.
The dream looks and feels so real. Even after waking up I couldn’t just wave it off.
Fear gripped me. I checked the time it was 4:21am in the morning.

I was afraid to sleep back. I remained awake until the full break of the day.

My phone rang while I was still in bed and it was Phil.
I became afraid to pick his call. When I finally picked he said.

“Good morning my love, happy birthday.

My night mare has almost disorganized me and my day. In the dream I have already had my birthday which Phil forgot to call or send message but in reality he was the first to wish me a happy birthday.

“…I’m coming to take you out and give you the best birthday treat.

“Thanks Phil. You really don’t have to, I don’t want to go to anywhere today. I want to remain indoor…

And that’s what I wanted.

“Are you sure Keji? You don’t sound alright…is there a problem? Don’t worry I’m coming over later. I’m coming to cheer you up… and to give you a birthday kss..

After the call ended, I remained seated in my bed . thinking over my life.

Another birthday came and another year was added. Oh, 32years already.
Why do time has to fly so fast. Why can’t it just take a break let me answer “Mrs” somebody first before it will come.
Phil’s birthday was almost three months before mine.
Phil is just three months older than. He knew and still doesn’t mind if I’m older or his older.
He said my age doesn’t count much to him, all that matters is being with the one he loves. he was still older than me with three months so we aren’t even agemate he teased me one-day.

When I knew his age, after his Dad told me while addressing me in the past, I wanted to hide mine away from him. I thought of reducing my age to 28years instead of telling him that i was thirty-one.
I thought is better he doesn’t know my actual age so it won’t discourage him towards me.
He didn’t ask about my age for months, I was happy and I never mentioned it to his hearing. it was along the line I have to let the cat out of the bag by telling him the truth during one of our discussion. He finally got to know and didn’t count it as anything.
I’m not happy how time is not in my favor at all. I remember saying I wanted to get hooked at 30, get a serious man and get married.
Here I was at 32years still on my high dreams of getting married to my own Chike.
Indeed, life is full of mystery.
And now with this discouraging dream I had, I don’t know what to do.
I don’t even know what to pray about or where to start my day from.

“God.. you already know today is my 32nd birthday. I know I’m not where I used to be, neither am I where I want to be. You have brought me this far and for that I’m grateful. I have list of stuffs I wanted to achieve at this age, my number one on the list is getting married to a nice man. I have dated alot of men in the past before Philip. My present man supersede them all. He humbled me and unknowingly made me a better person I’m deeply grateful for that but I have fears God. My fear is almost close to reality because of what you revealed in the dream last night. I don’t know if is the devil trying to put fear in me, I still don’t know if you are the one trying to warn me. I wish I’m very close to you, and have the power of discernment… God. I’m neither cold nor hot, I’m just there in the middle asking for your help. I don’t know exactly what to ask aside being a Mrs… please search through my heart and do to me as it pleases you but please don’t take Phil away from me because I might just die. In Jesus name I pray Amen.

Phil came around with some goodies for me. Different gifts wrapped in gift bags. I was thrilled but still not very happy.

“, What do you want me to do to make you happy… just mention it and it will be done. Anything Keji… do you want a car? A tour outside the country, maybe for a month..? Talk to me my love, what do you want…

“,I want you to make love to me. That will be the best birthday gift I desire from you.

He sighed heavily as his bright face change into a frown. He became quiet as he stare at nothing in particular. He was quiet, in deep thought.

“Uhmmm Keji! Okay…I will but it won’t be today. Still give me a little time.

“Today is my birthday Phil. I appreciate all this gifts you bought but the best gift you can give me today is what I just mentioned… Phil, I can’t wait anymore. I have tried to bend to your principles, is almost getting to a year, I guess is high time we get down to the main thing. What are your fears, am I not good enough…why can’t we make out in bed? I was a sxual active lady when you met me but I tried to be patient and abide to your rules. I know you are a good man and is hard to find a man so principles and disciplined like you. I’m just tired of waiting…

He took my hands into his and said.

“I’m sorry Keji. I just can’t do what you ask of me… not today. There’s a way that seems right to a man but the end is destruction. It may seem right in a man’s eyes but I grew up with the fear of God imbedded in me, Is not right in God’s eyes. I can’t please my flesh or you to displease God. Be patient with me and your whole wishes will come true. please Keji…

He said pleading.

“Yeah, same old story. No problem Phil. But who is Nenye?

He looked at me confused. The Lady in my dream her name is Nenye, she may truly be the one holding Phil back. He may later dump me. Ijeoma has mocked me and said a whole lot of things in that dream. I won’t open my eyes and watch soap enter them.

“What are you talking about Keji? Nenye??…who is Nenye?
He asked me back same question I asked him.
I can’t start narrating the whole dream to him, he may thinks I’m crazy.

“Never mind. Let’s forget it.

He try forcing me to say what I was talking about but I told him I was just messing with his head.

He stayed with me almost the whole day and later left.

I was arranging the whole gifts Philip bought for me when my phone rang. Unsaved number.
I picked up and the person started singing a birthday song to me.
His voice sounds masculine and familiar as I try to guess.
The caller finally said.
“Hi Keji, longest time… Happy birthday my run away girlfriend. I just saw it on my old social media accounts. This is Lukemon. How are you doing… have really missed you…

Oh my goodness, Lukemon the jewelry dealer, my ex boyfriend.

I was happy to hear from him as we go talking and laughing. Bringing back old memories and what we shared together before a misunderstanding happened and I have to leave back then.
He apologized again for what happened in the past.
He wanted to know if I was already married but I told him I was still single but in a relationship though.

Lukemon wanted to come around the following day just to say hi.
At first I didn’t want tl him to but I later sent him an address because I saw nothing wrong with it.
He drove down the next day and we had a great chat in the fine apartment that Phil got for me.
Lukemon wasn’t as rich as before but he was okay. He even got me some birthday gifts. Jewelries and bottles of wine.
He asked me how serious was my present relationship and I told him we are serious enough.
We drank and laugh together, I opened up and told him how my present guy is a “no sex guy”. I have to wait until he is ready.
Lukemon laughed and said Phil was probably impotent. No sensible man will not get wet on setting eyes on me. That ever since he got in he has been trying to control his manh©©d from embarrassing him.
We laughed it out.
One thing led to another and we kssed, had a long r©mance in the sitting room floor. As we were about to take it to another level like I have so wished Phil will do, I stopped Lukemon.
I just couldn’t. It unfair if I do this to Phil but my body yawn so loudly at what Lukemon was offering.

I was almost out of breath with the hot romance we had but I gathered courage to say no.
I picked up my cloths from where I threw it.
“I can’t Luke, I just can’t…my boyfriend is a nice person. I can’t do this to him.

“,He won’t have to know. He is obviously impotent, not man enough to want you. You want me Keji… your body is saying differently while your mouth speaks differently. I have really missed you…so much. I wish to have you back. I’m willing to do anything Keji…

He was holding me from behind and kssing my neck and ear. I was seriously struggling to resist. It was very difficult. We had another round of crazy kssing but I stopped him again and asked him to leave.
He pleaded but I wasn’t ready to oblige.
Lukemon later left.
I sat on the ground wondering what I just did.
There was no penetration, that’s consoling but we did things I haven’t done with Phil.
Phil was always gentle whenever we kss but with Lukemon it was crazy.
I wanted more but my conscience wouldn’t let me do it.

I try to act like nothing happened and kept it going.
Lukemon calls and texts me after then.
He came around twice but we only had few romance and I try to strongly avoid making out with him.
It was very hard but I still manage to say “no”

Three weeks later Phil took me out on a date.

He booked the entire lounged just for us.

As we sat together, sipping our wine, he brought out a tiny box and said.

“Please marry me….?

I looked around me, wondering if I’m really the one he was talking to.

…will you Keji? I have always wanted to do this for a very long time but one thing or the other kept obstructing. We are finally here and I felt is time to take our relationship to the next level. I love you dearly for being so patient with me. I can say I have made a better choice by choosing you… Keji, will you marry me?

I stare at him with the open small box in his hand that has the most beautiful crystal diamond ring I have ever seen. Almost the same type I saw in my dream.

He was sitting on a chair opposite me. A soft music by Phil Collins was playing in the background. I thought of Lukemon and guilt washed all over me

“…. does it looks odd because I’m not on my knee? My apologies Keji, I thought you won’t mind. Let me do that…

He stood, move back his chair and went on one knee.

“No… no.. Phil, it makes no difference to me whether you lie down or stand up. I’m just speechless on whaa…I mean you took me by surprise…I….will…I

He remained on his knees as I went on with my confused rant.
I pause and looked at him all over.
He was in a wine color blazer, white Jamestown shirt, a chinos dark royal blue trouser, a swede cover black shoe with flower designs and a Rolex wristwatch.
This young man can sweep Ladies off their feet.
He was looking dazzling in his appearance and all I have done all day was to stare in wonder.
He was too good to be true. Oh God, how could I have even allowed Lukemon to touch me.

I wish I knew what Phil was planing all this while.
I was just running out of patient due to the long delay. Why didn’t he tell me or give me sign?
Why didn’t he proposed on my birthday. I wouldn’t have allowed Lukemon to come over.

“… Keji…will you marry me?

He asked again. I can’t believe that he was asking me, a nobody like me to marry him.

“,Yes Phil. I will marry you…

Maybe I will keep whatever that happened between I and Lukemon a secret. I will ask him to stop calling, texting or coming around.

I’m finally going to be a “Mrs” not just ordinary one but “Mrs Kanu”.
God has finally answered my prayer.

I don’t know why I still have troubling feeling.
Is it better for me to confess to Phil about my love escapee with Lukemon or allow it to remain in the past, a secret?

I don’t want anything that will come between me and Philip. Not now or ever.
