EPISODE 10

 

Later in the day, I received a surprise gift from someone. When I opened it, I saw five pieces of shirt, two packs of singlet and four boxer shorts alongside a small note. When I read the note, it was from Kafeeya. I called her

Me: how did you know that today is my birthday?

Kafeeya: check your Facebook. Your day and your update are there. (ends call)

I quickly checked my Facebook and I saw the beautiful cake she posted on my wall. I called her back

Me: thanks for the gifts and the cake.

Kafeeya: the cake is at home.

Me: your place or mine?

Kafeeya: when you get home.

(fast forward to evening)
When I got home, I saw Mrs Adedokun fuming in anger. When I greeted her she didn’t respond instead she asked me a question

Mrs Adedokun: what is between you and Sis Kafeeya?

Me: nothing. We are just friends in the church.

Mrs Adedokun: are you sure?

Me: 100% sure ma.

Mrs Adedokun: why didn’t you tell me that today is your birthday?

Me: I’m sorry ma. I’d planned not to celebrate it since Titilayo is not here.

Mrs Adedokun: (calms) ok. I thought you were having s*x with Kafeeya

Me: nope. (I lied)

Mrs Adedokun: meet me inside for your birthday gift.

As soon as I entered my apartment, I received a call from Ifeoma

Ifeoma: Lover boy happy birthday. Even if you didn’t tell us

Me: thank you. How is Port – Harcourt?

Ifeoma: fine. But where are you?

Me: inside my apartment.

Ifeoma: my sister said that someone brought cake to the house for you.

Me: yes. Mummy Praise brought the cake for me

Ifeoma: why are you doing this accountant?
Me: can’t I tell someone to do cake for me? Or why the unnecessary question?

Ifeoma: but……

Me: but what I’m sleeping with her abi

Ifeoma: Mike I am not saying that but….

Me: please I am tired and I need to rest. If you that we are not dating could be this possessive, how will Titilayo feel?

Ifeoma: Mike, don’t make me…..

Me: angry!!!

Ifeoma: as I said, I am possessive about my thing; and I don’t want to share it with……

I hissed at her and ended the call.

As soon as I entered the main building, Mrs Adedokun came to give me a hug
Mrs Adedokun: happy birthday Mike.

Me: thank you ma.

As she wanted to talk, a call came into my phone

Me: hello

Kafeeya: happy birthday. I want to come to your house with praise and her friend.

Me: ok. I will be expecting the three of you.

Kafeeya: hope you haven’t cooked food?

Me: nope. (looking at Mrs Adedokun) except if Mummy has prepared food for everyone
(mrs Adedokun poked me at the back)

Kafeeya: ok…. But all the same we are coming.

Me: ok. I have heard you. (call ends)

As soon as the call ended, mrs Adedokun faced me

Mrs Adedokun: Mike, she said she’s coming

Me: yes with Praise and the other girl.

Mrs Adedokun: I want to spend your birthday with you alone.

Me: I will try to discharge her on time

 

Kafeeya came in about 10 minutes later with the kids. We danced, sang and ate; as if she read Mrs Adedokun mind, she quickly left the place for her house. As soon as she left, I got a whatsapp notification from Titilayo informing me of a Skype call. I excused myself from Mrs Adedokun and went to my apartment. When I entered, I initiated the Skype call with her

Me: Iyawo olojo ibi, you no come to Ibadan to celebrate with your husband.

Titilayo: ma binu si mi. you know that it is not easy, taking permission from work and travelling to come and celebrate with you

Me: ok

Titilayo: well, Ifeoma called me to report something to me. Who is Kafeeya?

Me: Sis Kafeeya is a sister in the church that I contracted to bake cake for me (I lied) when the cake was ready, she had to take it home to drop it there. In – fact Mrs Adedokun saw the cake and even commented on the cake

Titilayo: but what is going on between you and IfeomaMike you have to tell me the truth. Because I suspect you are lying.

Me: (getting angry) what is the meaning of that statement? So I should not interact with church members; or church members should not do anything/transact business with them abi

Titilayo: this is the problem I always have with you Mike. You get flared up easily……

Me: I know Ifeoma or her sister would have reported me to you

Titilayo: nobody reported you to me

Me: how did you know someone gave me a cake then?

Titilayo: check your wall on Facebook

Me: I have seen the cake…..she uploaded it this morning.

Titilayo: did you see what she wrote on the post?
I quickly rushed to see what she wrote; I was shocked and surprised because she wrote “to an angel……with love” and inserted a love smiley.

Me: Titilayo, I don’t know why you should be angry at what a person wrote on my wall. For your information, she is a single mother of a four year old girl. Funny enough, she is a chorister in the church where I work. So how will I be that silly to date her under the very nose of your sister – in – law (I lied); and Mrs Adedokun knows her very well.

Titilayo: it was Ifeoma that informed me and…….

Me: and what Titi? Baby, don’t spoil my day for me; I will call you back later (ends call)

I wanted to send an SMS to Ifeoma but I decided to play it cool. I returned to the main building to meet Mrs Adedokun. As soon as I got to the main building, Mrs Adedokun ushered me in. I refused to sit down.

Mrs Adedokun: Accountant what happened?

Me: Please did you call Ifeoma to tell her about the cake?

Mrs Adedokun: yes I did. I couldn’t imagine someone outside will be sharing my “thing”
Me: that is very good ma. It’s like we should put an end to what we have been doing.

Mrs Adedokun: put an end to what?

Me: the sexcapedes between us

Mrs Adedokun: Accountant, you are joking.

Me: Ma, I’m dead serious

Mrs Adedokun: so you want to rebuff my advances after eating me abi You will not do such again

Me: (sarcastic) Well, thank you for today….. I’m really tired and I want to go and sleep (turns to leave)

I carried the cake and was leaving. Mrs Adedokun grabbed my arms and looking into my eyes intently

Mrs Adedokun: Mike, I am sorry for my actions today. To be candid, your c^ck is sweeter than honey.

Me: Mrs Adedokun, I have heard you.

Mrs Adedokun: please call me Chinyere.

Me: ok I’ve heard you Sis. Chinyere.

I gave her a peck on her cheek and went inside my apartment.

***************************************************************************************************************

The following day in the office, the new Associate Pastor (AP) was introduced to us in the church. Also he was allocated his office and immediately he settled down, I heard a buzz on my intercom

Me: hello sir

AP: This is the Associate Pastor. Please come into my office. (call ends)

I went to meet him in the office. As soon as I entered his office and greeted him

AP: Accountant, I want you to be submitting daily fund position to my desk every morning before devotion.

Me: sir, you are not the Head of Station that I should be giving the daily Imprest position to. So…..

AP: do you want to dare me Accountant?

I kept quiet because I don’t want to create a scene. Immediately I left his office and went inside my office. I tried calling the Senior Pastor but his number wasn’t going through. Few hours later, the Senior Pastor called me and as I got to his office I met the Associate Pastor with him discussing.

SP: Accountant, what is it I am hearing this morning? Associate Pastor said that you should be submitting a report to him and you refused.

Me: Sir, he is requesting for DFP

SP: (turning to the AP) ARE YOU THE HEAD OF STATION

AP: Sir, in my former station, the DFP is always being done and I always have a copy of it.

SP: Lailai. It is only the Head of Station that is entitled to it.

Me: Sirs. I want to take my leave.

SP: Henceforth, YOU SHOULD ALWAYS SUBMIT THE DFP TO ME AND TO ME ALONE

Me: Ok sir. (I exit)

When I got back to my office, I called Titilayo’s number. She picked it almost immediately

Titilayo: omo olojo ibi, don’t be angry for what happened yesterday.

Me: (sighs) ok mo ti gbo. How are you?

Titilayo: I am fine dear. Just that I’m missing you.

Me: I am missing you too. Just that we were not together.

Titilayo: that reminds me. You need to call my dad.

Me: what happened?

Titilayo: he said he wants to speak with you.

Me: ok. Send his number.

Titilayo: don’t you have his number?

Me: you know that I flashed my phone and all the numbers were gone.

Titilayo: ok love… I will (call ends)

After she sent the phone number, I dialled it almost immediately.

Me: Daddy, good afternoon sir

Daddy Titilayo: good afternoon. Please who am I speaking with?

Me: My name is Mike Olatunji, Titilayo’s friend

Daddy Titilayo: ok, how can I help you?

Me: Titilayo was the one that gave me your number to call you sir.

Daddy Titilayo: ok……………………………are you the one that finished from OAU?

 

Me: yes sir.

Daddy Titilayo: how are you dear?

Me: I am fine sir.

Daddy Titilayo: that’s good. Where are you?

Me: I am in Ibadan.

Daddy Titilayo: where?

Me: Ile Tuntun area along NIHORT road.

Daddy Titilayo: that is very good. What about your parents? And where are they living?

Me: both are doing just great and they are living in Ijebu – Ode.

Daddy Titilayo: I would like to see you.

Me: when and where sir?

Daddy Titilayo: I will contact our daughter to tell you when we would meet

Me: ok sir.

Daddy Titilayo: I will save your number and call you later.

Me: alright sir.

Daddy Titilayo: I got to go. Talk with you later

Me: bye sir. (Call ends)

After the call I saw a message from Kafeeya “We need to see and talk – Love ya”. As I wanted to respond the message, Mercy came inside my office

(Switches to pidgin)

Mercy: howdy, lover boy?

Me: madam, how una dey?

Mercy: see me see favour. You dey answer question with question

Mercy: you get food wey dey tanda for your front you still dey hungry.

Me: Mercy, you wan make dem use my head fry dried stockfish?

Mercy: I bring food come but you go pay.

Me: no wahala.

(turns to English)

She quickly went to bring the food, shared it and went back to her post. As I wanted to eat, I received a call

Me: hello

My Pastor: Mike, this is not our agreement

Me: Daddy!!! E ma binu simi.

My Pastor: you promised that you will be coming for our special programmes but since when you resumed, you never had the time of calling let alone coming for the programme.

Me: please daddy I am sorry sir. I promise I won`t fail

My Pastor: We are starting the annual 15 days fasting and prayer and I want you to participate in it.

Me: ok…..

My Pastor: or have you eaten?

Me: I am just about to.

My Pastor: I would love that you join us.

Me: ok. I will suspend the food.

My Pastor: how is Sis Titilayo?

Me: she`s fine sir.

My Pastor: Tell her not to travel anywhere. Because I saw her running and blood was flowing on the ground.

Me: ah!!! She told me she was going to Jos for a wedding.

My Pastor: I would appreciate it if she cancels the journey.

Me: ok daddy. I will tell her right away.

As soon as the call ends, I called Titilayo

Me: omo ele, how are you?

Titilayo: I am fine.

Me: where are you now?

Titilayo: I am in Jos now infact…….. (ends call)

Me: hello……. Hello………. Are you there? (no response)
