Jake yawned and stretched as his alarm woke him up.He went to his bathroom,took his brush and pasted toothpaste on it.He looked at the mirror.His hair was bushy and so was his beard,It needed trimming.Well,that later,He shrugged and continued his teeth washing.A knock on the door startled him.
“Yes…Who’s it?”He spoke among mouthful of toothpaste foam.
“Samson”The voice replied.
“Ahh..big man”He said and stepped out of the bathroom towards the door.He opened up allowing samson in.
“Nice apartment,i must confess”Samson said as he entered.
“Thanks bro.”Jake said smiling.
“How much finished it all?”Samson asked.
“Just 55k”Jake replied.
“You’re rich o”Samson said as he picked up a newspaper.
“All thanks to my baby girl..Jemmy”Jake said and laughed.
“Hmm..That Jemmy issue brought me here”Samson said.
“What about her?..Hope all is well?”Jake inquired eagerly.
“Err..Do you know David Ridd?”Samson said.
“Yeah..SUG president”Jake said.
“I think he’s having an affair with your girl”Samson said.
“No!No!No!…I don’t like that,ok..My Jemmy can’t do such thing..I trust her”Jake said standing up on the bed.
“Alaye!…calm down..don’t let her fool you..She’s dating Dave dollars..I was at groovy with shantel,presh and Nelson yesternight..We saw David introducing Jemimah as his fiancee..Don’t be a fool fooled fully”Samson said and stood up.”After God,fear woman…I don talk mine”He added and opened the door.”See you later guy”.He left.
Jake sat down on the floor sweating profusely,his bowel was running and he felt the urge to visit the toilet.He took his phone and dialled Jemimah’s number but it was switched off.He entered the bathroom and had a quick bath.He must find a way of getting to her.
Jemimah smiled as David kissed her cheek lightly.She had spent the night alone in the executive suite of Groovy Hotel.
“Morning..lovely”David said in a romantic way.
“Hm..Morning baby”She replied sweetly and clapped her hands at the back of his neck.
“How about having a breakfast of Eggs,Bacon and Toast?”David inquired as he pointed to the waitress who held the breakfast carrier.
“Nice”She said smiling radiantly.
“Serve her”David ordered.”I have asked Idris to drop you again at school,i won’t be coming until noon to your place”He added.
“Anytime darling”She said as she sipped her hot chocolate drink from the mug.
“Alright,byee”David said and stood up.
Jemimah smiled as she looked at the Tall,broad shouldered guy.The suit he wore fitted him perfectly with his clean punk cut.She hissed as she remembered Jake.He will be fine,she thought and ate on.
She was ready to leave and was ushered into the Range.She felt like a queen and on top of the Universe.All eyes were on her as she dropped at the Junction facing her home.She was looking real beautiful and was ostentatious about it.The girls outside dilated their eyes and gossiped about the Vehicle that brought her.They thought she was dropped by a sugar daddy.
She entered the compound and walked towards their room door.It wasn’t locked.She pushed it open.
“Almighty Gbigbi!!She replied.
“Almighty Gbogbo!!Enny replied.
“Take Take Take”Jemmy said extending her hand for a high five.
“So how was it?”Christianah asked with gestures as she was on the phone talking to her Boyfriend,Adeolu.
“Fine o..my friends thank you so much”She said.
“Did I not tell you?…You can see sweetness is there..Did he..hmmm…you know?”Eniola quizzed.
“Hahaha…No,We didn’t sleep together.He slept in a separate room”Jemimah said laughingly.
“Aww…How i wished he did!!”Christianah said joining the conversation.
“Adeolu’s wife…You are done talking”Jemimah replied laughing.
“Yes..i’m done talking with my rich boo”Christianah said.
A knock sounded on the door.
“Come in “Enny said.
Jake opened the door and entered.Eniola and christianah burst into laughter on seeing.Jemimah frowned up.
“Hello..Enny and Christy”Jake greeted.
“Ooooooo”Eniola replied mockingly and looked at christianah’s eye.They covered their mouth and shook with laughter.
“Emm..Jemimah..I called your number but it was switched off..I knew it’s unusual so….”
“So what?..You talk to much..What do you want?..Another money uhn”Jemimah said looking at Jake from head to toe.
“Jemmy what’s wrong?”Jake asked.
“Take(Throws a bale of money)and let this be the last time,you will come here looking for me…I don’t know you”Jemimah said and laid on the bed,turning her back.
“Jemmy please what have i done?”Jake said and knelt down.
“But brother Jake..Which brother sef…Jake you’re stubborn,she said she doesn’t want to see you anymore..Just go,ahh…Na by force!!”Eniola shouted.
“Please beg her on my behalf”Jake said with tears trickling down his face.
“I’m coming”Christianah stood up and heads for the bathroom.She came back with a bucket of water and poured it on Jake.The three girls burst into laughter.With tears on his face,Jake stood up wailing loudly with Jemimah’s name on his tongue.
“Just go”Christianah said as she followed him outside with broom in hand.
“Jemimah…please don’t kill me…Have mercy on me”Jake begged but jemimah was unflinched.She simply opened her whatsapp to chat with her new lover,Dave dollars.
