Sweet Delicious Seductive Revenge


   Simmering into a swirling circular foam of perfect tiny bubbles, the coffee comes to a halt in a green big mug. And as my tongue gets a preview of the addictive Sweet Delicious Seductive Revenge. I soak in the taste of our lustful kiss, the memory of been caught by my ex and the shock on my current boyfriends face. This new me should be a star on a reality TV show...

   But.... My reality is far from glamorous and exciting. To be around my two new besties is one thing. Celine wants me to be family and marry her cousin. And Ajoke wants me to marry her husband to be's best friend. But he has been lying to me for two months. He has been sleeping with the enemy and cozying up to me like an innocent lamb. And now the truth is out, I can see myself betraying him easily.
  Right now, I am in my office. Pitching my advertising campaign to Daniel, Henrik and their lawyers. My lawyer is present and so is my P. A. I am as professional as possible in my form fitting skirt and white chiffon blouse. My lady like leather heels give my legs the long look I want and my natural coloured nails are well groomed. Thanks to Ajoke, she said the best way to heal from betrayal is to shop for the best attire on the best runway. So, I shop on Celine's runway of course, I like to patronize my friends. And yes, the credit card is Mr. H's. The man that refused to put the ring on my finger and has been sleeping with the enemy.
  Let's get back to the present jare, back to me meeting my professional goals and nailing this presentation.
 I inhale and smile as the heads in the room nod and approve my proposal. This babe is on point.

  In the confines of my personal office,  I exhaled and leaned forward. There's so much on my chaotic mind right now. So the next phase of money is going into my account. But plans have changed.
 Do I have to get a new place? Can I really afford to live so far away from my office?

  Na wa oo, break ups are really hard.

  But the most important question is, have we really broken up?
  I didn't have to think about it for long because Daniel placed his hand on mine. I did not hear him knock or my P.A. announce his arrival into my private space.
  It was an odd way to talk to me and I gave him a questioning look.
'You seem very far away..'
'Did I miss anything, did I answer all your questions?'
  I wanted to be sure our business arrangement was intact.
'Sure, even questions I didn't think of'
  I was arranging and rearranging the files on my table.
He took the files from me and made him face him.
'Please Ade, try to calm down'
  I was going to protest and then I realized that the reason the affair stopped was because of him.
'You knew'
  The shock on my face made him start to leave.
'Don't walk away from me, you knew my relationship was a lie...'
'I didn't....'
'But you slept with Baratu because you knew Mr. H wouldn't share'
  Saying it out loud, I realized that he was that bad guy that helped you see the truth.
'The bastard...'
'Ade, that he was sleeping with her doesn't mean your relationship was not real...'
  I heard what he was saying and it did not make sense.
'Oh, oh oh...'
   It just clicked.
'I see, it's my fault eh'
'I did not say that...'
'Seriously, I believe if I had been dropping he would still have strayed...'
  Daniel shakes his head, and tried to console me but I was not buying any of it.
'Is she that good?'
   I actually embarrassed him with my question. So Daniel can be embarrassed?
'Errr, ladies don't ask....'
   I stand at akimbo and lean back on my table.
'I have stopped been a lady'
'You can't..'
'I can..'
  Daniel leans forward to kiss me and I don't stop him. His way of daring me to kiss him, I think he realized that it would forever be our first kiss. So he stopped and put some distance between us.
 'It's not you...'
'.... You had your chance, it looks like its me and Henrik...'
'... Ade, Henrik is a dove, if he commits he commits for life...'
'.. Like he did with Athena?'
  Daniel opened his mouth and shut it.
'See eh, we meet people, fall in love and fall out. We share memories and make new ones. The problem is that we have been brainwashed into thinking it's one person or something is wrong with us. Enjoy Baratu while it lasts, I will enjoy Henrik and his beautiful lilac eyes...'
'Not you too, his eyes are purple, and sometimes green I think...'
  I grab my bag.
'Just know that when you are ready, I will be waiting...'
'No, Daniel I will not ever get into your den'
'Yes you will, you are still on an adventure... I will wait for you'
   I laughed and we both step out to an anxious Henrik. I could see the jealous streak all over his face. Daniel leaves and everyone but me and Henrik. All that was left was the silent hum of the air conditioning unit.
  Henrik moves close and I drop my bag and refuse to look up at him.
Henrik lifts my chin and I am staring at this handsome fifties movies screen god like man.
'Is Daniel who you want?'
I shake my head.
'Do you want me?'
   Kai, that question was powerful and I felt like jumping on him but I had to restrain myself .
 His kiss was gentle and then we both became intense. I wanted to just disappear into his world and never come back.
 My phone rings and I ignore it, but it keeps ringing and we both look at it. I see Mr. H's name and sadness engulfs me.
'What's wrong?'
'Let's kiss and forget their dirty filthy games...'
  I kiss him and he stops me and I know that the moment was over.
'Daniel him...'
'Mr. H has been having an affair with Baratu...'
'The one living with Daniel?'
'They were university sweethearts but he was too poor for her family but now...'
'But you and Mr. H...'
'I'm celebate..'
 Henrik laughed.
'The last man I slept with caught us kissing...'
'Where you planning to sleep me?'
'Was it a cleanse, a religious commitment...'
'All of the above...'
'Am I a revenge mission?'
'You are sexy as hell and I do want to be naughty with you...'
'But you don't love me'
'I have loved so much and all of it was a lie, but you are in front of me, you are real...'
'I am still engaged..'
'Do you want to break it off?'
'Can you relocate to the U.S.'
'Can I be enough for you?'
  So many exhausting questions and so little time. We both sit and I rest in his arms.
'I wanted to break it off but how fair will that be?'
'Why do you say that?'
'My parents love Athena, she's god mother to my niece's and nephew's and has investments with my sister...'
'So yours is a marriage of convenience'
'I was fine with that before I met you... My shares.. With Daniel have done so well, we could sell and start up something new...'
  It all sounds good but sad.
'So, your family will hate me'
'I didn't say that, but she's been unfaithful before and I did mind but moved on from it. Maybe we were not meant to be'
'Let's see how this goes...'
    He kissed me again and this time we don't stop. The door swings open and I realized my skirt was up and unbuckled. My blouse had buttons open and his belt was unbuckled. My hands were inside his shirt and I quickly removed them and straightened up.
  It was not Celine and pregnant Ajoke. I have never felt so humiliated in my life.
'Hi, I'm Henrik'
  Ajoke was blushing, I swear to God. She was eyeing the hair on his chest and I used his shirt to cover the buckle.
'Abajo to o fI Fe ba sun. Omo yii dara'
 Henrik laughed and understood every word that praised and said he was deliciously sexy.
'You understand Yoruba?', Ajoke screamed.
'Daa da', he said and I smooth my hair.
'What do you two want?'
  Celine clapped her hands.
'In case you have forgotten, we planned to have dinner today'
'Henrik and I have plans'
'No you don't, Celine protested.
'Celine, what's your own?'
  Henrik laughed and pulled me away from her.
'It's okay, we have all of tomorrow to catch up. Just sleep over what we talked about'
  I bit my lips and just looked at him from head to toe. He took my hand and gave it a wet kiss. I wanted to go home with him and even though he had left the room, I was still staring at the door.

   Celine is really getting on my nerves, she did not tell me that dinner was in Mr. H's house. Yes it was no longer home and as I caught sight of the meal, my mouth watered.
'Thank you'
  I hugged her and we both cried briefly, we both mourned the relationship we have dreamed of and the future we may not have.
  Mr. H walked in and I stopped the tears and stood upright.
The rage boiled from my veins up to my face, I do not even know was still mad at him. This our arrangement is not going to work for long and with the fired up words I'm about to spew from my lips.
   Na die him dey....
