After the office shindig that lasted almost all evening, Ifeanyi went home only to receive a call from Tess who is eventually inviting him out.
A few seconds later a text came through notifying him of the Uber fare been deducted from his account. He deleted the debit alert and scrolled to call up Tess.
It rang for a while before going mute. Where the hell was she or was she playing games with him? He asked himself as he dialed up her number once again. It rang for a while and was about going all mute again when she picked up.
“I am at the address you gave me?” he could barely keep the anger out of his voice.
“Huh?! are you sure?”. she asked before coughing.
“Yes na! No 17. I am infront of one high fence like that”. Now the anger was evident.
“Oh ok, please hold on. I am coming” then the line went dead.
Ifeanyi took a few steps back to confirm the number of the house again. He brought his phone close to the house numbering, using its dim light as some light. It was No. 17 alright. He put his hands in his pocket and waited. A minute later he could hear the gate been unlocked from within.
He closed his eyes for a second and tried to calm himself so as not to let his anger take charge.
When he opened them, Tess was peeping out the gate with just a leg and her head out.
“What are you doing?” She chuckled.
He opened his mouth but no words came out. Tess shook her head and reached forward to grab his hand before pulling him in. She locked the gate back behind. Ifeanyi looked around and even though it was late and all dark he could still make out how beautiful the compound was.
It had a nice row of flowers running all around the bungalow that was standing right in the middle of the compound. Not far away from him was a Toyota Rav4 jeep. Someone else was home with her or what she planning up for a threesome for him.
“Are your parents at home?” He asked the trick question.
“No, why would you think that? I am not a kid, I live alone” She rebuked him.
As she led the way inside. He did not answer her question but stared at her behind as she walked ahead of him. She had a see through nightie on that all but showed him that she was naked underneath. He didn’t know if she was doing it on purpose on it was just the nightie but her ass swayed from side to side in a manner that had him peering right at her crack.
She opened up the door and the light that came from within brought him back to reality. She went in and he followed her, closing the door behind him. Now where was the third participant.
Would she be as seductive as Tess or even more? But then there was no one. Just an expensively furnished living room staring back at him. He was puzzled and stopped in his tracks. Tess felt it and turned back to look up at him.
“What is wrong?” She asked searching his face.
“Where is she?”
“Who?” Tess was now the puzzled one as she moved closer to him and held his hand.
“The owner of the car outside, thought she was going to join us for a threesome” Ifeanyi blurted out.
“OH!”Tess’ eyes widened before she busted out laughing. Ifeanyi was even more confused now more than ever. He waited patiently while she laughed and then gathered herself.
“I own the car, mister” She said.
“You? When did you buy it? Or you just did not want to wash it for us that’s why you have not brought It to work?” Ifeanyi queried.
She laughed again.
“I have owned a car ever since I was twenty one. Even just got this one sometime last year” She explained.
Ifeanyi frowned a little, everyone at the office knew Tess was from a rich home but no one knew just how rich. He then asked the obvious question that came to mind.
“Whose house is this?”
“Mine” Tess stopped before pausing to think things over.
“I own the car and house but never did bring the car to work because I did not want anyone thinking I was just some rich spoilt brat, and ruining my learning years.” She continued.
“Learning years?” Ifeanyi was getting more confused with each statement.
“Yes, I wanted to take out a few years to work and learn a thing or two before starting up a company of my own. So I never brought the car to work or make extra fuss about my bank account or the salary we get paid”.
Everything now made sense to him, why she had never wanted them to spend a night together or even let anyone know where she lived. But then again.
“Why did you let me come here then and why telling me all these? What changed your mind? Did Dara fire us after I left or what?” The last question was of paramount importance to him. He would have to start looking for a new job by the morning.
“Would you calm down? We were not fired”. Tess laughed. Ifeanyi eased up a little.
“And as for your other questions. How about I answer them after Dinner?” And with that she let loose her nightie and let it fall to the ground.
With her naked body all infront of him, Ifeanyi figured he definitely could wait till after dinner.
He took the first step forward.
