“Baby please am sorry.” Jummy apologised.
Segun ignored her and concentrated on playing
games on his phone.
“I don’t mean to put you into trouble with your
parents.” she said.
“So?” Segun asked as he advance towards her.
She stood her ground and fidgeted as she closed
her eyes expecting another slap. Segun stopped in
his tracks and turned back to his bed.
She quickly held him on his arms which was where
he got a cut resulting from the beatings. He whinced
“Ow! Sorry.” she said then excused herself as she
went out. She re-emerged a few minutes later with a
bowl filled with hot steaming water and a small
towel to massage his wounds.
She gently massaged them so as not to cause him
pains. Then she applied a pain killing ointment on
There was a knock on the door, the door gently
opened and Mrs Akinola walked in.
She smiled immediately she saw the care Jummy
was giving to Segun.
“What a great couple they’ll make.” she thought.
“I can see she is taking good care of you.” she said.
Segun kept mute and looked on as the drama
“I came here to talk to you.” she said referring to
Jummy packed her things(the towel and the bowl)
and made to leave the room.
“I think i should excuse you.” she said.
“Wait! You are also involved.” Mrs Akinola said
“Segun, you know i am you mother. Tell me the
reason why you behave that bad to Jumoke at the
party.” His mother requested.
“I reacted out of anger.” he said.
“Are you telling me you got angry just because a
drink got spilled on you?” his mother asked.
Segun kept quiet and looked at his fingers like he
had never seen them before.
“I know you hate this girl.” his mother said stressing
Segun quickly looked up like he wanted to object the
last sentence but no words came out from him.
“Now tell me who do you love between Jumoke and
Nike? I want nothing but the truth” his mother
“Mum i don’t seem to get your question.” Segun
“You heard me right.” she replied.
“I am short of words.” he replied.
“So, you mean you don’t love anyone of them?” she
asked and stood up. She left his room before he
Jummy sat down transfixed.
“Segun, you mean you don’t love me?” she asked.
“I couldn’t remember when i said such.” he replied.
“Segun, upon how i showed so much love to you,
you have the guts to tell me you don’t love me.” she
“Don’t dare raise your voice at me.” Segun said as
she kept quiet.
“Segun i love you. Please don’t let me be at loss. I
promise you anything.” she said going on her knees.
Segun motioned her to stand up.
She stood up and walked towards him. They
embraced and began kissing passionately. One way
or the other they manouvered their way to the bed
and succeeded in having hot rounds of s£x.
She laid down putting her head on his laps, he was
caressing her hair.
“Segun. Promise me you won’t break my heart.” she
Segun stopped and stared at her for some seconds.
“Jummy, i don’t deal with desperate people like you.
Do you think i will love you if you allow me to have
s*x with you? Hell no, what i feel for you is lust. I can
never date a cheap girl like you.” he poured out.
Jummy looked at him with a teary eyes.
“Jummy am very sorry. We live under the same roof
and we ought to behave like brother and sister and
not like lovers. And you know i have my heart with
Nike.” he explained.
“Okay.” Jummy said and left his room carrying the
bowl and the towel.
Mr Akinola came out of his room followed closely by
his wife. They were both dressed in the same native
attire. Waiting in the sitting room was Mary and
“Go and tell your brother we are leaving.” Mr
Akinola commanded Mary.
She left the sitting room and ascended the stairs to
Segun’s room. She knocked on the door.
“Daddy said i should tell you we are leaving for
church.” Mary said.
“Tell him i’ll come on my own.” he replied.
“But, we are one family, lets all go together.” she
“I know but am coming on my own.” he replied and
shut the door.
“What you are doing won’t pay you.” Mary said and
ran away before he could reopen the door.
Mary descended the stairs and walked to join the
other family members.
“Where is your brother?” Mr Akinola asked.
“He said he will join us in church.” Mary replied.
“Meaning?” Mrs Akinola asked.
“He’s going on his own.” Mary replied then collected
her parents bible bag.
Mr Akinola gave his wife a “can you see your son”
look. Mrs Akinola shrugged and pretended like it
doesn’t concern her.
“Lets go.” Mr Akinola said and walked out of the
house followed by Jummy and Mary, his wife gave a
last look to the sitting room before she dashed out
to join the others in the waiting toyota rav-4 outside.
Segun came out of his room immediately he heard
them close the gate.
“Me, go to church with you. When am not mad. I’ll
make you know how stubborn i am.” he said aloud
and headed for the kitchen. He dished his breakfast
and sat down on the dining and muched the food
slowly. He finished eating and took his bath, put on
his cloth, wore his perfume and off he went to
As he was about entering the chuch auditorium his
phone ranged. He walked to the car park and picked
the call. It was Olanike. Since the event that
happened in her school after the football match. She
never for once picked his call and Segun had since
ignored her too. Segun rushed home immediately after the
Nike had promised to come around by 1pm and
thank God his parents will be waiting behind for the
elders meeting while the two girls won’t come home
on their own.
He got home, took a shower and waited patiently for
the knock on the gate.
THIRTY MINUTES LATER
There was a knock on the gate and Segun rushed to
see who the person was. On opening the gate he
saw Nike standing looking ravishingly beautiful
dressed in a yellow top and a black skirt a little bit
longer than knee length.
Segun stared at her and put on a charming smile.
“Won’t you let me in?” she asked smiling.
“Oh! My bad.” Segun said and opened the gate wider
Segun led her into the house.
“How did you know this place?” Segun asked.
“Your mum invited me so she sent me the
description.” She replied.
“My mum?” he asked bewildered.
“Yes.” she replied.
They both settled down in the sitting room.
“What should i offer you?” Segun asked rising on his
“Water will do.” she replied.
“Water? No way.” he replied and went into the
kitchen to get her a orange juice pack.
There was a horn at the gate. Segun knew at once
that his parents are back.
He left what he was doing and rushed to open the
gate for them.
><><>< “Good afternoon sir. Good afternoon ma.” Nike said kneeling down. “Afternoon my dear.” Mr Akinola replied. “Thanks for honouring my invitation.” Mrs Akinola said. “Hi. Yov must be Mary?” she said walking up to Mary. “Yes. And you are Nike.” Mary replied. “Its nice meeting you.” Nike said. “Its my pleasure.” mary replied. Jummy walked in moments later and saw Nike exchanging pleasantries with other member of the family. She felt jealous. “Jummy good afternoon.” she said. Jummy ignored her and walked to her room to drop her church things. “Segun!” his mother called. Segun came inside the sitting room and sat down beside his father. Then the meeting began
