It was saturday morning. I have sent my detailed
address to lolade in the morning and she replied me
that she would be coming by 11am. In the speed of
light, I removed all the cobwebs in the room, I
changed my bedspread, I placed a pack of condom
under my mattress incase of incasity. I removed the
chairs in my room and kept it in my neighbour’s room
so that she would be able to sit on the bed when she
I shuffled my photo album and removed the pictures
containing me and ladies in a romantic posture, I
went outside to buy 3 bottles of malt, 2 digestive
biscuit, 50nair oranges, 3 apples and filled them in my
fridge. I sprayed the room with air – freshener and I
went to the filling station to purchase a 3 litres of
petrol and filled my “I better pass my neighbour”
small generator. I removed the dusts on my
electronics and everywhere was neat and looking
nice. On a good day, I used to clean up my room
once in a month and yet, it won’t be sparkling as the
way it is now. When I was through, I went out to
make printouts of her new CV because I made only
one copy the previous day.
11am, lolade called to inform me that she was on her
way. On hearing this, I switched on my generator and
also my DVD player and slot in a romantic nollywood
Few minutes later, I got a missed call from lolade, I
called her back and she informed me that she was
standing infront of my house. I wore my 3 quarters
and a white round neck top and I went out to see
her. On getting to the front of my house, I saw lolade
standing at the opposite side of the road. She was
putting on a popular short gown with white and black
stripe. That type of gown that is usually fitted to the
body and brings out the real shape of the a$$. Her
hair was loosed and packed with rubber band. She
smiled at me as I waved at her. Lolade crossed over
from the opposite side and came to where I was.
She knelt down a little and said “good morning sir”.
“How are you” I replied her and she said “fine sir”.
We entered into my room together.
ME: have your seat dear
LOLADE: **sat on the edge of the bed*** thank you
ME: you are looking more gorgeous and prettier than
the last time I saw you
LOLADE: ***blushing** thank you sir
ME: what can I offer you?
LOLADE: anything sir
ME: hmm. Anything?, then let me give you weed then
LOLADE: **laughs** so you smoke weed?
ME: just kidding, don’t you know that I’m a bishop?
LOLADE: loool. Bishop of which diocese?
Lolade and I continued to crack jokes as I opened my
mini fridge and offered her maltonic and apples
which I purchased before her arrival. We were
flowing along as if we have met each other long time
LOLADE: thanks so much sir for your help concerning
the job. I needed the job badly
ME: really?, why badly?
LOLADE: you won’t understand sir
ME: then make me understand. I actually assisted
you because I’m interest in knowing you, so I’m
LOLADE: hmmmmmm, its a long story sir
ME: summarise it for me
LOLADE: ok, actually, I finished my secondary school

ME: **cuts in** yeah, I saw that on the form you
LOLADE: so immediately after that, I lost my dad
ME: eyah, I’m so sorry about that.
LOLADE: thank you sir. And my mum cannot finance
my academic to tertiary institution because she is a
ME: eyah. What about your elder brothers and
LOLADE: I’m the first born. But I have 2 younger
LOLADE: thanks sir. So that’s why I wanted a job
which I can save little money out of it to obtain jamb
and finance my studies to some extent. And also
sustain myself with the rest so as to ease the burden
on my mum.
ME: that’s a nice idea. But do you know how much
you will be earning before talking about savings?
LOLADE: honestly, I don’t know, but I just know that I
will be getting paid.
ME: well, its a small money.
LOLADE: how much sir?
ME: just 10k
LOLADE: 10k?, its ok sir. I so much appreciate it. I’m
Me: you are welcome, what about your boyfriend?, is
he not capable of financing your education?
LOLADE: boyfriend kee?. Mtchew, which guy is ready
to be committed this days?, all they want to do is to
have s£x and go.
ME: so you are telling me now that you don’t have a
LOLADE: what do I want to do with it?. I want to
focus on my life for now.
ME: “oluwaseun oooo”. Thank God.
LOLADE: why saying so sir?.
ME: because I won’t be having competitor and rivals
LOLADE: I don’t understand sir
ME: **moved closer***. Lolade, I know this is too
early, but its a burden on my heart. I like you right
from the first day I set my eyes on you, I got home
and I dreamt of you all night. Infact, I have never
stopped thinking about you since then,. To be sincere,
I went through stress to convince my manager to
hire you out of the all the applicants. I did all this
because I love you…………………. “Format continues”
LOLADE: but you are just knowing me, how can you
claim to love me sir? And don’t you think I’m young
enough to be your younger sister?
ME: ***held her hand**** lolade, don’t say so please.
You are hurting me and my heart is bleeding because
of what you just said. I seriously love you, I mean it.
LOLADE: so what about the person you are dating
ME: I swear to God. I don’t have a girlfriend.
LOLADE: and why?
ME: because my heart was waiting to meet you for
the past 2 years since I broke up with my ex. My
spirit chose you on first sight.
LOLADE: so is it because of the job, is that why you
want to use the opportunity to use me?.
ME: lolade, I swear to God, my love for you is real
and genuine. If only you can dissect and open my
heart, only then will you know how much I love you.
LOLADE: I’m so sorry sir, I’m not interested, if its
about your job, you can keep it sir.
ME: lolade, why are you talking like this now?
LOLADE: I mean it. ***stands up and about to walk
