Guys! Bad news, I don’t have enough time so, I will only be dropping an episode per day, school is back, so classes are back (groans) and job is on the move too! Also, the book is a work in progress so, inspiration is not flowing (ko sha pra pra ), so bear with me.


I woke up late as I often did on every Saturday morning. Checking beside me I realized he had woken up sooner . I stood up and having folded my blanket, I put it beside the pillow and left the room. I could hear noises and laughter coming from the living room-

"You are not serious. You think I am like you...have you forgotten what name they gave you then?"

"Those guys were assholes..."

It was Felix, Henry's friend , he had come very early this morning. I walked in on them . They were both holding a cup of tea each while there was a third in the tray on the table.

"You see, you have disturbed my wife's sleep" Henry accused Felix, who was smiling at me as my husband extended his arm towards me, pulling me closer.

"Good morning darling" He said, handing me a cup of hot tea as I sat down beside him before he kissed me on the lips.

"Morning Beauty. Sorry we woke you up with our incessant noise" Felix apologized, giving me one of his dashing smiles which I knew so well

. He was in a pink shirt , black jean and a pair of black trainers, his sun glasses were hooked in his hair. i used to love him in a pink shirt, he is fair, I used to tell him that pink color makes him m=look especially with his pink lips.

"You think I'm not used to that after all these years I have known you two?" I replied, trying to ignore the effect his smile was having on me.

They both chuckled. Felix maintained his eye contact at me but I looked away.

"So what are we discussing this morning?" I asked, placing a hand on my husband’s shoulder.

"Nothing special love, he came across an old picture during NYSC so he were just discussing old days." Henry said.

"Days of harvesting" Felix put in , laughing so hard.

"What do you mean by days of harvesting?" I asked, picking the picture on the table. There were a group of students in their school uniform while Henry sat in the middle beside a  girl carrying a cake.

"Oh, someone was celebrating her birthday?" I asked.

"Yea. That is Tori, the brightest student in my class" Henry replied.

"WOW! Its good seeing your NYSC pictures." I replied. "Thanks for bringing this Felix. You know I never saw any of his service pictures."

"Really?" Felix asked.

"You didn't..." I started but Henry interrupted-

"Sure. You remember I was robbed of one of my bags in the train that brought me back to Lagos"

"Oh..that...sure" Felix replied uncomfortably.

"So this was your brightest student in the class, you must really be proud of her" I said to Henry.

"Yea" Henry said.

"No...Tori wasn't your brightest student Henry.

Read " Black Widow " by the same author ( Tobi Loba )

. Have your forgotten your baby-Benita? That girl loved you so much. Her whole family worshiped you.You know the period you were doing home lesson for her and the principal thought something was going on between you two and almost reported you to the Inspector?" Felix asked excited.

I shivered at the name… why didit sound so familiar?

"Excuse me please.. I need to pick something in the room."

I watched as henry stood up abruptly and  began to climb up the stairs that led to our bedroom. Then I faced Felix but he was already pulling me closer to him.

“Stop it Felix, are you high?” I snapped at him quietly, pulling my arm from his grip.

“Oh my God! You still smell so amazing when you just wake up.” He said, sniffing at my hair and holding me closely and forcefully by the waist.

“You need to stop this nonsense this minute.” I ordered, beating his arm and looking hesitantly towards the staircase.

“ You know I love it when you hit my arm playfully.”

I groaned and using all my will power, I pulled away from him, maintaining a considerable distance.

We were looking at each other. He looked as handsome as the devil, giving me that low sexy look while biting his lower lip.

“You should have been mine, you know that.” He growled.

‘Well, you are too late.” I replied before changing the subject.

"What did you call the girl's name again?"

“Which girl?” He asked and I pointed at the picture.

"Benita. I think she died or so, she is not in the picture. I don't really understand what happened with her." He replied nonchalantly.

The name rang a bell, where have I heard it before?

"Honey, I'm hungry. Can you please fix us something to eat?" he

Henry's voice snapped me out of my thoughts . He came into view as he climbed down the stairs.  "Sure baby." I replied and stood up, ignoring Felix as completely as  i could before  heading towards the kitchen.
