     Ding dong. Ding dong. Ding dong. Ayo woke up trying to get what happened when she saw Kore in her bed then her brain did a rapid movie of what happened earlier to her consciousness. She heard the doorbell again and this time, Itunu's voice came with it, 

"Mum, are you at home?" 

She suddenly started panicking. Itunu must not see her this way . See them this way. She shook Kore awake and he sleepily asked, 

"What is the matter?"

"Itunu is around."

"Let him in na."

"Are you high? He must not meet us in this position."

"Babe, just calm down." He said and kissed her lips. "You go take your bath, take your time. I will deal with Tunz then I will come back later."

"Okay. Okay." She said and he stood up and dressed up in a few then kissed her again and left. 

For some minutes, she just sat down there trying to understand what she had just done. She slept with Kore. She was at ease with him enough to sleep with him. She slept with him and she didn't even have a relationship with him. While her subconscious was dancing and merrying, her mind was all about how she just wh*red up to a guy. She decided to take her bath and go see her son. 


     For the next two weeks, Kore and Ayo kept stealing kisses and making out here and there, anywhere. 

One evening, Ayo was eating with Itunu, Kore was out when Itunu asked, 

"Mum, what's going on between you and Uncle Kore?"

"Excuse me?"

"I asked what is happening between you and Uncle Kore."

"I heard you the first time

. Will you shut your mouth and eat your food?"

"I know you are dating."

"God! Where did I get this boy from? We are not dating."


"We are just... We are just tending towards that. We are not dating yet."

"All right. I will know when you are dating anyway."

"And how will you know o? Seer of our time."

"It will be so obvious. It's been so obvious you liked him and he liked you."


"Of course. He always wants to make you happy."

"How did you know these things? Wait sef, how old are you that you are already talking this maturedly?"

"Mum, it's not about the age. It's all about observation. You take note of things. You pay attention to little details."

"Is that what they are teaching you in that  school of yours?"

He remained silent. 

"So, when I mention school, you shut down abi? Yeye boy." She said looking at him with amusement and they continued to eat in silence. 


     Two days after, Ayo and Lara went up to their boss's office to give him reports about their show. Ayo opened the door first only to see Kore's secretary helping him with his tie.

. The proximity was too much and all Ayo could think of was the fact that he was cheating on her and then all sort of thoughts clouded her vision. She closed the door firmly and went out with Lara trailing her. She went out of the building, into her car. Lara got in and said. 

"Now I know why."

"Why what?"

"Why you've been all glowing and extra cheerful. You messed with the sheets with him, right?"

Ayo nodded.

"So, what is the problem? Why are you upset? Because his secretary was helping him with his tie?"

"Did you see how close they were?"


"I knew it was too good to be true. How can he want me and stick with me? I am not even worth him. We don't even have a relationship. I can't even be allowed to get jealous or angry when stuffs like this happen. Yet I can't stop thinking about him."

"Babe, you should talk to him and tell him how you feel."

"And turn myself to an idiot? No way!"

"Sweetheart, the best you can do right now is to think about this well, do you want him? Is he worth it? If yes, tell him and clear your mind."


"Good. Head home and rest. If he is smart which I know he is, he will come see what's up and why you left abruptly like that."

"Thanks Lara."

"Anything for you, baby." Lara said and she hugged her then stepped out of the car.
