Noah:

  Am still holding unto this woman I am supposed to resent. I am rocking her in my arms while she cries on my shoulder. I know what just happened to me was some pretty serious sh-t because I wasn't able to wake up from my dream. It was like I was trapped. Drowning slowly. The weird thing is that even though I keep getting nightmares these days, it has never been this intense and clear. What is the cause? Is it my change of environment? I know this couldn't be the cause . The cause is currently rest against my chest, sniffling from time to time.

   It's silent for a while and I look down at her. Our eyes meet and I notice how close our faces are. My eyes scale her impossibly beautiful face before landing on her lips and I swear I see it shiver. Don't ask me how lips shiver, I don't even know but I saw it so leave it at that. Her pink tongue peeks out and wet her bottom lip. Christ! I shouldn't be doing this but it's like the little witch is daring me to kiss her and know how good she taste. I won't fall. Nope. My resolve is almost solid until her full hair get loose from its hold and cascade around her. My fingers ache to touch it and I do. I rake my hand through the oh so soft hair and she makes this noise that does weird things to my heart.

"F-ck it!" I say under my breathe before I pull her hair backwards and move in to taste those tempting lips.
   The loud ringing of my phone startle the both of us and Minerva jump away from me. I want to hold her back but I know it's for the best

. She's the drug addict daughter of a drug dealer who killed your parents. That reminder is enough to snap me out of whatever spell she had put me.

  I quickly sit up and grab my phone from the bedside table. Its probably the security of my condominium in warri calling back about my mails I asked to be forwarded to this house. I look at the phone screen. Ivy's picture flash on the screen and again I chastise myself. Ivy and I are supposed to get married a month from now and I am here with another woman thinking of sweet lips.
"Ivy" I say as soon as I connect the call.
"Baby. I have been calling you for about an hour now. Just said i should try again." she says and I sigh. She's always calling like she wants to keep tab on me.
"I was sleeping ivy. Its so late in the night" I say
"Well I just got home from the office. Have a lot of paper work cut to finish so I can finally come over." She sounds excited but I am not.
"Ok ivy"
"Umm how's your memory recovery coming along" she asks silently.
"Well, I had a dream. It was pretty clear. I think this beach house is going to help me get it back" I say and my eyes meet Minerva's. She just standing by the wall with her hands wrapped around her.
"What? You mean you already got some of your memories? What do you remember? Noah, I think you should come back to warri. We could find a psychologist for you and___" I hear ivy drone on. Sometimes I wonder if she doesn't want my memories to come back. I am beginning to think something is up with her. My detective skills are screaming at me.
"Don't worry ivy. I need this vacation." I tell her.
"Fine." she says and the line goes dead.

  My eyes leave my phone and goes back to Minerva. Being close to her could be the key to unlocking my memories so I should look for a way to keep her with me for a while. At least till ivy gets Here. But how?
"It's late and it's also raining outside Minerva. You could lay on the couch for tonight" I tell her and she eye me suspiciously.
"Hey. You were the one who attacked me earlier. I should be the one scared of being r-ped in my sleep. Moreover, you ain't my type. If you don't want the couch, The door isn't far" I state then plop back down unto the bed and pull the duvet over my head. I hear her walk out and I peek through the duvet to see her pick some pillows and head for the living room. Phew. Thank God she didn't leave.
  Why am I being such a jerk to her anyways. She seem really concerned about me earlier and she did save me from my dream. I would try to convince her to stay for about a week. She could help get back my memories. Or maybe you just want her close to you. My subconscious tease and I give it a mental middle finger. What does my subconscious know? I just want my memories, not Minerva.
*****************
Minerva:

  My aching back wakes me earlier than usual and I curse the small couch and the man sleeping comfortably in the other room. He did let me sleep inside though. I should be grateful but couldn't he just be the perfect gentleman and sleep on the couch instead? who am I kidding Noah was never a gentle man. Charming and nice back then when he was using me but right now, he's a total jerk but my heart still cares. I confirmed it last night when he was struggling in that dream. Also when he held me in his arms while I cried. I knew he was going to kiss me. Damn that caller. Who the heck is ivy anyways? Maybe his real girlfriend before he came undercover.
  That thought definitely left a bitter taste in my mouth.
"Come on Eva. You still have to find a place to stay. I don't want to leave abraka. It has been a long time I came here but I have formed ties with my neighbor. Eliza. She's just 26 and married for five years but has 6 children. Five boys and a girl and guess what? She's also heavy with child  Apparently, she was blessed with triplets twice. I can't imagine the stress but they are cute and being with them make me feel normal. I have also formed ties with those Coke in that convenience store. It's been so long since I had coke and I already made a promise to them that once I get a job, I will purchase them. Call me weird but I can't betray those lonely Coke.
Maybe I should call Kennedy. He should be able to find me temporary accommodation right? I don't want to owe that man but I think I have no other options. Noah seems like he hates me so no hope there. I pick my phone to dial the number Kennedy left me but then remember my lack of airtime.

   Its just a few minutes after five. I don't want to wake Eliza and her wonderful kids. I need to make the call before Noah wakes up and throws Me out though. Maybe I could just use his phone. He should be sleeping on that so comfortable bed. I could just sneak in and out. He wouldn't miss a few nairas right?
I tiptoe into the room and see Noah sprawl on the bed.

Read " The fill-in wife " by the same author ( Ameh juliet )

. The sheets tangled around his body. He looks dead to the world. I quickly locate his phone and click it on. Password. Sh-t. I should have thought of that. Fingerprints could also open it right? I grin then gently grab his right hand. He doesn't stir. I press his index finger to the fingerprint reader and hold my breathe. The phone unlocks. Yes!
"Oh my God!" I squeal as I suddenly find myself on the bed under Noah.
"Look who we got here? Trying to r-pe me little midget?" he asks with a big grin on his stunning face.

 

Lol

I was so giddy writing this episode.

I've always loved playful bickering between my characters.

Its so cute.
