Nosa will date any man for the right price. Find out why.
It’s been a week since Toyin and Bode moved in and I am surprised at how it isn’t bad, after all. Bode leaves the house before I wake up and returns late at night. And Toyin is her natural self, bubbly, excited for me. She cooks and cleans like it’s her house, and I don’t lift a finger. We even got to shop for and design my baby’s room. She goes to her government job in the morning and returns in the afternoon, the typical civil servant.
Toyin has spoken to me about getting a job so many times now, it doesn’t even make any sense to me anymore. Her life is not better for it, except that she is just so much more religious and fanatic. To be positive, I’ll say, she’s more heaven-ready. But who can know? She’s enjoying my sinfully-obtained hospitality, and doesn’t this make her an accomplice?
Yet Toyin has made it her duty to make me remember God and to change my ways.
Luke stayed away that first night but has pestered me to get rid of my guests because he wants to come over. I am willing to make a plan to meet him elsewhere. I even offered to pay for a hotel room if necessary, and he laughs in derision.
How much do I have compared to his, anyway?
Luke, by the way, is not as generous as I first thought and has not given a lot in recent times. Doesn’t bother me a lot but I remind myself I have a baby coming…And I need to find a way to get some more money out of my multi-millionaire boyfriend. I do have a premonition about a lot of things and it just seems things are going to wind down pretty soon, though, with all the recent events, I may just be reading the signs.
There’s a click of my front door, and though I am not close to it, only one other person has access to my house apart from me. Luke.
Toyin is back from work, and we’ve had a late lunch together. She usually retires for a few hours into “her” room, and then we watch TV together before I go to bed. She waits up for Bode so she can open the door for him.
I stroll out of my room and meet Luke walking into the parlor.
“Finally, there is a chair and a table,” he mumbles.
Luke is not the petty type, and he could well ignore it altogether, but he expresses his emotions at times.
“Hello, darling.” I get a peck on his cheek. “I know you’re upset.”
“Me, upset? I don’t have the time.” He drops into the couch. “Where are the free tenants?”
As though she is just standing behind the door, Toyin walks in. I’m surprised she goes on her knees to greet Luke, the drama queen.
He’s taken back as well but my boyfriend smiles and waves at her.
Toyin stood. “Can I serve you some food. We just cooked—”
Luke arches an eyebrow. “No, thanks. I’m fine.”
Toyin looks at me, and I smile and nod. Luke does not usually eat in my house anyway unless he’s spending the night.
“Okay, let me allow you. Goodnight, Mr. Chase.”
After she leaves, Luke asks, “What’s her name?”
“I want her out of my house.”
I move closer to him and place my head on his chest. “They are trying to get a place.”
Luke snickers. “Accommodation isn’t that hard in Lagos.”
“They just can’t afford most. And the ones they can are not good enough.”
“I want them out of my house, Nosa. If you don’t do it, I will. Tonight!”
