Tale of a prostitute. Episode 43.

Ifeoma

The supposed ‘ cure’ was working.

Within two days my energy level and

appetite were back to normal and i had

started to put on some weight. My T_

cells also increased and Emeka gave

me some calories boasting drugs. It

seems everyone was struggling to give

me my life back, maybe it was time i

start fighting for it too. My dad found a

way to smuggle more of the’ cure’ for

me through the help of Kofi’ s daughter,

Bella.

We lost some of our dear ones in a

little over a month, Racheal had brain

seizures, Kofi had CMV of the eye and

one day Bella found him cold in bed.

Christmas was just weeks away and i

was prepared for my wedding.

” A penny for your thought ” Ebere

walked into my room. ” Wow you look

lovely”

She had caught me wearing the Italian

wedding gown Chiboy had bought for

me.

” You could have knocked!” I said,

embarrassed to the side.

She laughed. ” Really you look great!”

” I would like to wear this gown for my

wedding ”

” That would be fabulous! ”

I scrunched my face. ” But it was

Chiboy that bought it!”

” All the more reason you should wear

it!” Ebere said with a wicked laughter. ”

Imagine wearing the gown bought by

another man on your wedding day! it

would serve him right!” She gave me a

high five.

” How’s Liz”

She groaned. ” The girl is something

else! Lola is still not speaking to me.

She doesn’t even want me near her ‘

child’ ”

” How about Ayo? What’ s brewing

there?”

She fluttered her lashes. ” Nothing. And

i wouldn’t want to have anything to do

with him anyway?”

” Why Ebere? . What are you hiding

from me?”

” His father is Senator Williams”

” What has that got to do with anything?

She looked away.

” My God! You…….you…..”

” Yea. He recognized me too and he

throws subtle innuendos whenever I’ m

in the same place with him.”

” Oh no! does he also live there? ”

” No but he finds an excuse to come

visit every day!”

” I think you should tell Ayo”

” Tell him what? that i f*ucked his dad?

and his niece is actually my daughter?”

” Ebere i’ m sorry…..but there has to be

a way out!”

” The only way out is for me to scram

out of there before they discover that i

am a fraud”.

******************************

*********************

After Ebere left for the restaurant

because it was her off day at the

Williams’ s residence i drove down to

Ikoyi. I could do some of the things i

used to do before since i started using

the miraculous ‘ cure’. I had wheedled

the address from Ebere without giving

myself away.

” Your madam is expecting me” i lied

through clenched teeth.

” Madam no tell me anything o, Abeg

wait make i go confirm from her”

” My friend do you want to lose your

job? do you know who i am?”

” Sorry ma, na protocol ”

” Protocol my foot! Open the damn

gate!”

” Yes ma, sorry ma” the security was

already sweating.

He pushed the gate open and i drove

in. I marched down from my car like i

had been to the house on several

occasions, i slide open the glass door

and entered the cool air conditioned

living room. An ebony woman sat on

the couch flipping through a fashion

magazine, she was so skinny i could

wrap her around my little finger. She

looked up in apprehension.

” Who are you?” She demanded.

” Lola, my name is Ify and I’ m here to

see you” i could see recognition register

on her face briefly before she gave me

a blank hostile stare.

” Leave at once! i don’t know who you

are and I’ m not interested in whatever

you have to say to me.”

” Why? What are you afraid of?”

” I will call the securities if you don’t

leave right away”

” Why are you acting so hostile? is it

because you know who i am and why I’

m here?” I sat down at this point. ” She

did you a favor Lola”

” Please leave” she pleaded.

” You would have lost your husband and

probably your home too if Ebere hadn’t

helped you…… your husband would

have married another woman if you had

failed to give him a child if Ebere hadn’t

helped you “.

She covered her face with her palms in

despair. ” I offered to pay her!”

” It wasn’t and isn’t about the money

Lola, Ebere was born to love others and

give her all without expecting anything

in return, don’t you think the least you

could do is give her a chance to get to

know her child?”

” She’s trying to steal Liz away from

me! I can’t lose her now!”

” Nobody is trying to take Liz away from

you and if you think so it means you

don’t know Ebere at all!”

” She’s not trying to steal Liz? then

what is she doing here pretending to be

a nanny?”

” She only want to know her”

” I don’t want to lose my child! I have

lost my husband and she’s all i have

left”

” Give her a chance, try to know her”

She managed a half hearted smile. ” I

see why Ebere loves you, because you

have her back. I wish i have someone

one to stand up for me too.”

” Ebere would be there for you if only

you can stop seeing her as the enemy.

” Am dying, Liz is the only bright spot in

my life now.”

” You are giving up easily, fight, Lola

fight it back”

” Am only being realistic ”

” True. But you have already stopped

living, start living once again, not just

for your daughter but also for yourself.”

I said, standing up.

” I wish i have your courage and your

strength. Thank you”

If only she knew how i was furiously

paddling underneath the water to stay

afloat. I let myself out while she sat

immobile, deep in thought.
