kingdom of darkness in my house

My phone kept ringing but I didn’t pick it up.
I knew it was Shade wanting to ask for
forgiveness. It wasn’t that I blamed her for
finally having the guts to cheat on me, I just felt
betrayed. she should have chosen someone
further than our circle. indeed I had been
caught countless times by her, but most of the
girls where faceless. she didn’t and wouldn’t
ever meet them for the rest of her life…except
she wanted to.
When she had insisted I visit her at her
apartment in Bodija, I had mixed feelings about
it. I expected to get laid, but the s*x wasn’t as
good as before. the terrific behind wasn’t as
captivating as it was when I had her from the
back those many times in my one bedroom
apartment. She still had the looks of a model,
but show me a very beautiful girl and I will
show you a guy that is tired of straffing her. I
had entered her rather opulent house to see her
looking depressed. Her enviable cheekbones
had lost some of its sharpness.
“what is wrong?”, I said, running my fingers
down her face.
“Nothing”, she replied, holding back tears.
“You called me all the way here for nothing?”
Then she started crying.
Shade was an emotional girl, so the tears didn’t
adequately prepare me for her next words.
“I slept with someone else”.
My mouth twitched but I couldn’t find the exact
words to say to her. I felt defeated, like my
crown had been yanked away from me by an
unknown Joystick.
“who?” I asked, taking a few steps backwards.
With tears choking her up, she said it didn’t
really matter who.
“Dapo, I am sorry I just wanted to get back at
you”.
“I thought you said you had forgiven me?”
she kept crying like the Dam that I thought she
was.
“who did you screw?”
She didn’t give a reply, instead she stood up
and ran into her room. I followed closely behind
her, I was having a sick feeling at the bottom of
my stomach.
“Tell me who it was, right now!” I grabbed her
by the arm and pinned her to her bedroom
door.
“Baby, let go of my arms”, she begged.
“Don’t, ever call me a baby again, you
LovePeddler!”.
Her shoulders sunk lower .
“Now tell me who it was”.
“Joseph”, she finally said.
“which Joseph?” I said, cold sweat immediately
appearing on my forehead.
She nodded slowly.
“Joseph, my colleague at work?”
She nodded again.
My phone rang again, this time I picked it and
switched it off. I tried pushing u the sickening
image of Joseph bursting inside her, spilling his
Pour on her stomach, her saliva all over his
Joystick, but I couldn’t. I could hear her
moaning as he hit her from behind. I had to
stop my car Sango bus stop, in front of Total
filling station.
I sent her a message, telling her she was killing
my battery and I didn’t want to hear from her
again. I told her I would return her ATM card
which was still in my possession. She replied
saying she was very sorry. I deleted the
message.
Joseph was one of the few guys that
intimidated me at work. He was not just
handsome, he was also very intelligent. He also
happened to marry one of the most s*xy** girls
I had seen. many a time, during pre-intimacy
with Shade, I’d fantasize that I was with his
wife, my Attention usually became firmer. If he
knew I was jealous of him and all that he had
working for him, he never showed it. We usually
hung out on weekends, watching premiership in
his apartment or mine.
He had teased me countless number of time,
how if I wasn’t going to marry Shade, I should
let him have a go at her. He told me he would
toss his wife in as a sweetener, ofcourse he
was kidding so we’d just laugh about it. He
didn’t know I was the person that sent his wife
numbers and images of girls he was cheating
on her with. I had this secret SIM that I used
for my mission. Surprisingly, their marriage
seemed to go on smoothly. I had flirted with
her about a month ago. we where at a dinner
party organised by the bank at which we
worked. I had pulled her to the dance floor and
as we rocked on, I told her she had a behind to
die for, and if she was ever bored, she
shouldn’t be shy to call me. “Your friend never
makes me bored”, she said and shortly after,
left me by myself.
I always thought, Shade like him. She talked
about his height, his nice car and how he was
really funny. I even sensed she was developing
a crush for the guy, but I didn’t think they
would ever have the opportunity to screw each
other.
I started my car engine, making up my mind to
visit a university of Ibadan girl I had met some
days ago. she seemed smitten by a young
Banker, she told me in very clear terms that if I
wasn’t after only her puna, ten I could have all I
wanted, including her puna.
“Hello Jes, are you in the hostel?”
“Yes Dapo, long time o!”
“Im coming to pick you up, hope you aint busy”
“Nope, I aint. I will be waiting”
“Okay, I am on my way”.
I stopped at a bar opposite Sango police
station and bought a small plastic bottle of
Origin bitters. I had every intention to have her
all night. In three gulps, the bottle was empty, I
was in business.
Driving down to University of Ibadan, that was
when I saw her. She was standing infront of
Ventura Mall, she had the face of an angel. Her
beauty was unlike I had ever seen and even
though I had passed her by some metres, I
reversed to where she stood.
That was when I saw the swollen part of her
brow, the sorrow in her eyes. her eyes were still
watery. I decided that I must be the hero to this
beautiful damsel.
