Tale of a prostitute. Episode 45.

Ebere

Lola had suddenly became friendly, i

wondered if she had ulterior motives

and i was on my guard for a long time

but i soon let it down when i realized it

came from her heart. Mildred had

finally gone back to the states with

Tess, Monkey and Liz were manageable

now albeit mischievous. I poured the

diced red pepper into the tomotoe

sauce boiling on the cooker, i felt his

presence before i even look up. His

expression tells it all. I sagged against

the kitchen counter in despair, Lola had

been so brave the previous night, she

knew her time was up but she had a

happy smile on her lips and kept asking

me to take good care of Liz.

” She’s gone?”

He nodded. I put off the gas cooker

and followed him into the living room.

” She left you something” he handed me

a brown envelope

My hands trembled slightly. ” How long

ago?”

He groaned and stood up like a

wounded animal. ” Why didn’t you

f*ucking tell me Ebere! why?”

” What……what are you talking about?”

” You have become more than a nanny

to my kids…..you are here to welcome

me when i come in weary from work

every night, you are here to see me off

with a cup of coffee every

morning…….i shared my problems and

worries with you! you found a way to

sneak under my skin……you wormed

your way into my heart!”

” Ayo…..Ayo please stop it! ”

” Please don’t insult us both!”

” I don’t have any idea what you are

talking about!”

” You are only here because of Liz! do

you think you can just waltz in here and

steal away my niece?”

” Is that what Lola told you?!”

” No. She doesn’t have to spell it out

for me!”

” Ayo please listen to my own side of

the story! ”

” You have had your chances and its

too late for that! Lola was so kind

enough to leave you some

compensation so take it and leave right

now!” He walked out of the room in

anger.

I gingerly opened the envelop and

brought out a check of ten million naira

in Lola’ s neat hand writing. We had

become so close in her last days on

earth, i had sat by her bedside all night,

holding her hand, the cancer had eaten

deep into her soul. My phone rang on

the center table, I reached for it. Ify.

” Hello Ify, Ify, what is wrong? i can’t

hear you”

She must have dropped the phone, i

could hear her crying in the

background.

” Ebere….Ebere”

” Ify honey, am here please talk to me!”

The call disconnected. I went into my

room, picked up my bag, i couldnt

resist going into Liz ‘ s room. I picked

up a framed photograph of her, dropped

it into my bag and hurried out of the

house.

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

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

I drove to Ify’ s house like i was

auditioning for a part in fast and

furious. She was always so strong, she

had been happily married for three

months. Ify doesn’t do tears and pity,

she’s so good in keeping her emotions

in check. I parked my car outside, i

pushed open the little gate with all my

might and raced into the compound.

” She’s upstairs.” Emeka closed the

door. ” Please talk some senses into

her”

I took the stairs two at a time and

pushed open the master bedroom.

” You better stay away from me!” Ify

whirled around, she realized i was the

one and lunged herself into my arms

sobbing.

” They want to….to….take him away

from me!” She sobbed.

” Who Ify?”

” I am pregnant ”

I sighed in relief. ” Thats a good

news…..isn’t it?”

She trembled in my hands. ” I won’t let

him go”

Emeka walked into the room and

carried her on to the bed. ” Ify you

won’t lose him…..okay?” He wiped away

her tears.” Please rest now” .

He pulled my hand along and banged

the door after us. He didn’t let go of my

hand until he got to the bar downstairs.

He poured himself a hot skotch and

drowned it in one gulp.

” What is going on?”

” God!”

” What is going on!?”

” She’s hypertensive! it would be

suicidal to have the baby.”

” Surely there’s a way out”

” The only way to save her life is for her

to get an abortion”

My head felt heavy. ” My God! Please

tell me this is a joke!”

He gulped down another hot skotch.
