She just stood there looking so elegant.
The pregnancy removed nothing from
her beauty, it rather added a sort of
sexy appeal to her radiant skin and
made her saucy. Chinaza was just on
fleek as she stood at my door that day
but then, I would have loved to have me
She gave Chinecherem that look she
normally gives me each time she gives
me a head and I refuse to return the
favor. Very deadly look.
“Who is she?” she asked, it was actually
her first word on entering my room. Her
eyes was roving from Chinecherem to
“Aunty don’t you remember me?”
Chinecherem asked. I assumed the
Aunty calmed her. She sized her up
again and shook her head.
“She is shape’s sister,” I added.
“Who is shape?” Chinaza asked, facing
“Who else do you know that I know that
has the potentials to be called shape?”
“Oh okay, Chinaza? You are
Chinecherem right?” she asked, facing
her. She nodded and that ended it. I
don’t think it stopped her from
suspecting that I may have an extra
friendly business with her.
Chinaza walked up to me on the bed
and made a sit out of my laps. I didn’t
mind cos her ass was all soft and cosy
only that she developed a little bit of
James was already colonizing
Chinecherem with immediate alacrity
and I was just fuming. Chinaza doesn’t
know when she is needed. I would have
told her but I doubt if was a good idea.
But then, whatever, Chinaza even looked
better than her, I am not hating shaa.
But then, there is something about all
these new Secondary school graduates
that adds the veins to my preek.
Shaa shaa, things fell into place,
slowly. Chinaza in my arms complaining
endlessly about waist pain and wanting
to go out and relax. James sweet
talking Chinecherem and she looking
endlessly at me and Chinaza.
Something was telling me that she
envied Chinaza’s position and may want
to make a switch and I would have
loved that. At least, her maths tutorial
didn’t seem like it would happen which
was better for me, I had lost touch with
the mathematical side of me and James
love for mathematics was inversely
proportional with my love for fine girls.
“Did you cook?” Shape asked and
Chinecherem scoffed. Even Chinaza
was smiling mischievously. She
obviously knew that cooking for me
was next to reading my books without
any upcoming exam or quiz in my list
“I’m hungry,” she said after getting that
Bleep you look from me.
“What do you want to eat?” I asked,
rubbing at her tummy and having her
smile up at me.
“Lemme buy indomie,” I said, trying to
move her away from me. She refused
and shook her head.
“What is indomie, is that what the baby
will use and be Strong?”
“What do you want naa?”
“Take me out,” she snapped and my
head cracked like a coconut.
“I know a restaurant around here that
sells cheap and interesting food,”
Chinecherem Chipped in.
“Yes, and they have the right food for
pregnant women,” James supplemented
her. I shot them two live bullets with
my eyes and frowned. Chinecherem was
smiling sheepishly, I wondered what
gave that small girl the right to talk
among men. James was giving me that
his wicked grin. I hissed.
“When married men are talking,
bachelors and spinsters should mind
their business,” I said and everyone
laughed, except me, it was my Pocket
money that they are trying to divide into
three after all.
“Baby please,” Chinaza begged with a
look that would make you buy her the
whole of Mr Biggs but then, I don’t even
have the money to buy her a mama put.
“I don’t have money,” I begged back.
She didn’t believe me.
Baby, please,” she continued.
“I don’t have money,” I repeated.
“So I and the baby should remain
hungry naa,” she snapped.
“But I offered to cook indomie.”
“It’s not good for the baby abeg, he
needs solid food.”
“Is the baby complaining?” I asked. She
eyed me angrily, I don’t know if she
was serious with the anger or she was
just pretending but she was still lying
on my body so I assumed the anger
“Maybe we should go to the woman
outside the gate, she even have 100
naira a plate food,” Chinecherem
continued with her suggestions while
Naza kept nodding.
“100 naira food won’t do us naa,”
James added and Chinaza nodded
“We? as in, who are the we?” I asked,
gathering as many frowns as my face
would allow me.
“Us, all of us. We are hungry too,”
“Do you see any breast on me?” I asked
and she shook her head, a good deal of
confusion registered on her beautiful
“Why do you ask?” she asked me.
“Well, is like you are mistaking me for
Again, everyone laughed except me.
Then like a storm, Shape breezed in,
dragging her ass in and Willie behind
“Hey, the latest couple in town,
Welcome,” Chinecherem clapped.
Everyone kept quiet and turned to her.
The surprise was on everyone’s face.
“Ar ar, I know these two guys don’t
smoke and no one in this lodge smokes
so I am wondering who gave you the
weed that is pushing you like this,”
“Ask her o,” James said. Me, I was just
looking, how can someone be so
mouthed. She hadn’t even been up to 3
weeks around and she’s already sweet
on everybody, even Willie that she just
met. A very naughty side of me saw in
a vision, a 3some involving me and
James hovering over her head like the
“Is she that your cousin?” Willie asked
shape and she nodded.
“She is fine shaa,” he murdered and
scratched his side burns. James
coughed. Chinaza charged up.
“See Willie, something is bordering us
here,” she said and Willie turned to her.
“What is bothering our wife?”
“We are hungry,” she replied, waving at
all of us. We nodded. Willie was willing
to impress and in no time, My door was
closed and we were on our way out, like
an extended family. Each to his
company. Chinaza was willing to show
everyone around that her pregnancy
was mine. James and Chinecherem,
well, Shape ensured he kept an
accurate 9 inches distance from each
other but that didn’t stop my niggar
from massaging her booty from time to
We ended up at a restaurant. and we
made merry, the boys drank and got
drunk and the girls accumulated bills on
Willie’s head but that money for his
graduation tuxedo seemed not be
finishing. Shape took a sip of Willie’s
drink and let her tongue loose.
She revealed in her drunken state, some
things that was between her and Naza.
Apparently, she had asked Naza to
come and keep an eye on us and her
cousin. She trusted James a bit, it was
with me that her suspicions lay.
Obviously I needed to work on my
reputation. Even shape is hiding her
sister from me. Hmmmm.
