Immediately after madam’s departure, I noticed she didn’t go with
gideon also,I sensed a trouble ahead. I believed madam must have
informed sikirat to watch over janet and I, I believed she must
have left gideon at home also for same purpose.
While I was in the living room, trying to round up the lesson with
janet, sikirat walked in from her room and went to the dinning to
pack the plates.
I looked at her and she looked back at me with a straight face. ” I
know say I don enter am this nite”. I began to reason how the
night will look like, whom I should sneak out to meet”.
Sikirat’s unhappiness must have been caused by janet’s presence
in the house. She walked away into the kitchen still looking at me.
Janet caught me staring at sikirat. “I have been suspecting you
and our maid of recent. That is why I stayed back this night. I
know its dangerous leaving both of you alone in this house” said
“Chaiii, I don enter am”. Then I acted a stubborn boy, “me??, to
your maid?! What is the meaning of this rubbish?, abeg leave me
alone”. I stood up, left janet on the sofa and went into my room
and locked from inside. Janet called my phone several times
which I didn’t pick up. She came to knock but I didn’t open. Then a
text came in from janet ” I’m so sorry love, I never mean to upset
you, I was only kidding. I love you”. I saw the text and smiled.
At 11:23pm. Sikirat called me, she said I should come over or she
should sneak into my room, I reminded her that janet had been
suspecting us and catch us. I asked her what madam discussed
with her before going to church but she refused to talk. She said
she will call me back at 12:30.
I dropped my phone and tried to sleep, a whatsapp message came
in from janet and we started a conversation.
JANET: dear, pls I need to be in ur arms right now, I am cold and
ME: so sorry dear, same thing here.
JANET: should I come over?, or will you come?
ME: sikirat is in the house with us, I don’t think its safe.
JANET: what do you mean?
ME: didn’t you noticed that your mum went inside her room the
JANET: and what does it implies?
ME: it implied that sikirat is told to watch our movements, and I
don’t want to get into trouble.
JANET: she can’t do anything, she is just a maid. If she dares to
report us to mum, I will implicate her and she will be sent packing.
ME: **confused on what to type next**, ok, open your door, I will
come to your room soon, I want to tidy up somethings.
I was confused on what to do next. What if sikirat or gideon see
us?, what if she decided to expose everything as she threatened
earlier?,. While I was thinking, sikirat called again to remind me
that she will call me at midnite. This time, I was totally confused. I
switched of my phone and slept off.
I woke up around 7am, I
switched on my phone, I got several whatsapp messages from
janet and “call me sms” from sikirat. I knew I will have to face
interrogation today. I was in the room and I heard madam’s voice
downstairs. I also heard the sound of a sweeping broom at the
back of the compound. I was scared to come out of the room
because I don’t know the excuse I will give janet, after a while, I
overheard madam telling sikirat to buy fruits while coming from
the market, then I remembered today is another market day.
“Waoh, what do I do?”. I sent a text to sikirat that I will be at home
by 10am and she should see me there..
I came down stairs and met madam in the living room,
ME: good morning ma
MADAM: good morning onihaxy, how was your night?
ME: fine ma. How was the vigil?
MADAM: it was ok,
ME: ok ma. Pls ma, I wanted to check on a friend in town at 9am
so I said I should inform you
MADAM: ***laughed***, you are funny, you are free to go to
anywhere at anytime provided it is not affecting my children
lesson sessions. I’m not imprisoning you here, you are only here
to work so you should have your freedom**she patted me on the
ME: ok ma. Where is janet?
MADAM: she is still in her room.
I went back upstairs to my room. I sent texts to janet, apologising
about my inability to come last night. I told her I was scared of
been caught by gideon and sikirat but janet refused to reply. I then
recorded a 3minutes voice note, telling her how much I missed
and loved her. Then she replied with a voicenote ” I loved you too,
I couldn’t sleep well last nite because I missed you”. Chaiii, I don
Its 9am, I had my bath, dressed up and went to my house, ion
getting home, I was in my bad neighbour’s room having a gist and
chats when my phone rang at 9:49am. I checked the screen and it
was sikirat. I picked the call the call and she said she was at my
door entrance. I dashed out of my neighbour’s room and went to
meet sikirat. We entered my room and started conversations.
SIKIrAT: what happened last night, why did you switched off your
ME: I wanted to sleep for a while before the night call, so I ended
up sleeping off till morning.
SIKIRaT: hmmmmm, abi its because of aunty janet?
ME: **laughs*** janet kee? Rara ooo, I just slept off, that’s all.
SIKIrAT: I was awake all through the night sha, waiting for the
time I will hear door movements but I didn’t hear any.
ME: door movements?, how?
SIKIRAT: that was what madam told me to watch out for. In fact, I
slept at the store room upstairs last night.
ME: ***chaiii*** see me see monitoring ooooo”. So if I went to her
room, what would have happened?
SIKIRAT: I will tell madam ni
ME: **i don enter am**have you believed me now that I’m not
SIKIRAT: not yet. “Smiled”.
ME: now that the white house is secured, how do we get to see?
SIKIRAT: let’s continue with our old method of market days
ME: ***chaiii, this babe get sense***
We had a sweet “woman riding on top” se*x after a sweet romance
and she left for market. After her departure, I picked my phone to
chat with janet
ME: jane baby, how are you?
JANET: I’m not fine
ME: what happened?,
JANET: you aren’t free and closed to me like before.
ME: but baby, try to understand me. As long as sikirat is always at
home, I have to behave myself. You can’t underrate her, she might
JANET: ok, I have an alternative
ME: what is that?
JANET: maybe I will be sending her out on an errand whenever I
wanted you, or we will be going to your house occasionally.
ME: “chaiiii, this girls no go kill me”. Ok, we will talk better when
JANET: back from where?, so you are not in this compound?,
where are you?
ME: oooh sorry I didn’t tell you, I went out to see a friend. You
were indoor at that time.
JANET: ok sir. Don’t stay long outside oooo.
ME: **laughs*** ok dear.
For the next 6 weeks, things worked out fine, sikirat and I would
hook up at my house on market days, it was always a moment of
tutorials and sweet se*x. Meanwhile, janet will send sikirat on an
errand For unnecessary things whenever she needs a “quickee”
and we will opt for my house on none market days whenever we
fill like having a nice romantic outing. I never stopped getting
excited whenever I saw madam on her night gowns or short skirts,
whenever we are sitting together at dinning, she likes patting me
on my laps.
During 2nd week of april, about 3 weeks to jamb, something
tragedic happened. We were at home on one saturday evening
when a woman came into the house, I guess she was the woman
who brought sikirat from ilorin. I was having a session with janet
on the dining, sikirat was in the kitchen while madam and the
woman was discussing in the living room. Madam shouted
“yeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!” We came closer to them, madam said “sikirat’s
mother is dead”. I felt so sad, my eyes were soaked. Janet was
crying. Gideon’s face was dull. Sikirat was sent for. The news was
broke to her, she was crying helplessly like a poor baby. I could
felt her pains. She had always told me how she loved her mummy
so much. We consoled her and cheered her up.Due to islamic
tradition, the mother would be buried on sunday morning the next
day and sikirat must travel that saturday. Janet and madam
followed her to her room to pick few things. Madam drove us to
ilorin pack. Sikirat was still crying. We all encouraged her.
She promised to be back in 2 weeks time. We watched her entering
the bus with the woman. I couldn’t hold my tears. I felt so sorry for
her. I knew I will definitely miss her for that period. As we were
heading back towards home, JANET was smiling in silence. I was
like “what the hell is wrong with this girl, why the smile”?
WATCH OUT FOR PART 13 TOMORROW
