I And Ogechi (chapter three)

EPISODE 3
After checking into the room we spent the first 7 minutes in
silence, cooling off the tension. When we were both relaxed
we continued with the silence, waiting for the first person to
make a speech. Whenever I looked at her, she would pretend
to be looking at something else to avoid making eye contact
with me. And when she finally turned to look at me, I
would do the same. So about 10 minutes more was spent in
silence. Then I started talking.
“So how’s the hooker thing going?”
“What? What hooker thing?”
“Come on girl, I’m not trying to nasty or something. I’m
just trying to make a good conversation here.”
“And calling me a hooker is your idea of a good
conversation? I think I better get going right now in case
you think you can just say anything to me because you paid
for this room.”
“Oh no, you don’t have to do that! Okay, I won’t say
anything again till we leave. It could be dangerous out there.
You could have told me you didn’t want to talk, and I would
just keep shut.”
“You don’t get it do you? I’m not a hooker!”
“Seriously? Then what the hell were you doing out there with
the hookers by this time of the night?”
“This time of the night? It’s just after 11pm, and this
isn’t my first time of returning home late. I return home
after 10pm on Friday nights because my fellowship holds a
prayer meeting to pray and commit the weekend into God’s
hands. We dismiss by 10pm. And what just happened today
doesn’t take place this early. For some reason it did today
and I happened to be at the wrong place at the wrong time.
Thank God I didn’t fall prey into the hands of the police.”
“(Smiling) Yeah, thank God I was there to rescue you.”
“(Laughs gently) You’re not serious. And you, what were
you doing there? You went to pick up a hooker right?”
“I didn’t want to tell her why I was there because of
shame. After all, we’ll go our separate ways in the
morning. So why should I begin to let her in on such
information.”
“Not really. I felt so bored at home. I had been sleeping
all day and there wasn’t any sleep left for the night. So
instead of just lying on my bed like that, I decided
to……..”(Ogechi interrupted)
“I know! You decided to go there and get yourself a woman
to keep you company till morning. ooOOhH’ Guys!”
“That’s not what it was. I just went there to have a drink
and then, you know, feed my eyes a little.”
“Oh yeah? You expect me to believe that?”
“Of cause! How on earth could a man who went to take
home a hooker be sleeping on a rubber chair in a semi bar
with a bottle of water in front of him? Haven’t you thought
of that?”
“It’s possible you just fell asleep, or you could be waiting
for a girl you had already concluded arrangements with.”
“No! None of that happened! Just like you, I was at the
wrong place at the wrong time okay?”
“Okay, I believe you. (Turns away from me and
whispers) wrong place at the wrong time my foot. (Speaks
out loud) I need to take a shower.”
“Yeah me too. You go first. When you’re done, I’ll do
same.”
She got into the bathroom while I lay on the bed waiting for
her to come out so I could also get in and take a shower.
After we both took a shower, I asked if she wanted anything
to eat before going to bed. She didn’t, neither did I. There
was no pajamas whatsoever so we went to bed with the cloths
we had on. Before we went to bed we watched TV a little.
She sat on the couch while I lay on the bed. It crossed my
mind to switch and let her have the bed in case we slept off,
but the bed was so soft and comfortable to lie on, plus, I
paid for the room and that was the first time I would be
spending the night in such a comfortable place since I got to
Enugu, so I should get all the comfort there was to get. I
was still contemplating on whether or not to make the switch
when she stood up from the couch and turned off the TV.
Next thing I heard was, LET’S PRAY. I said okay and
stood up without hesitation. We held hands, sang some
worship songs, and then prayed. After the prayer, she at
once made way for the left hand side of the bed and lied
down, not minding if I was gonna sleep on the bed or not.
I wasn’t really sure of what to do, but I decided to lie on
the bed with her, expecting to get an objection from her but
instead, she turned and faced the ceiling, closed her eyes and
said goodnight. Good night, I replied. I was so happy she
made no objections because I really wanted to sleep on that
bed.
By 6am in the morning I heard a tap on my shoulder.
Wake up, wake up, she said. I stretched myself a little and
went back to bed. Wake up, wake up, she kept saying.
Then I woke up still feeling sleepy. What is it? I asked.
It’s morning, she replied. This is just 6am; allow me to
sleep a little more. Besides, today is Saturday and the pay
for this room expires by 12pm. So relax. Saturdays was
usually my day off from my N5000 job. I didn’t know
about her but I assumed she would also be free on Saturdays
no matter what her occupation was. If she had somewhere to
go, she could go ahead and leave. Why wake me up? She
got up from the bed and stood beside it, looked at me and
said; LET’S PRAY. I didn’t say anything more. I got up
and joined her and we prayed. After freshening up she
wanted to make use of body cream but there was none there.
Oh! She exclaimed softly. What is it? I asked.
“I can’t go out without applying cream to my body.”
“You shouldn’t worry about that since you’re going home
from here. You’ll do that at home. Or will you skin change
its color if you don’t do so now?”
“Stop kidding! I’m not going straight home. First I’ll go
cash some money from the ATM, and then to the market to
buy some stuff for the weekend. I might not return home
soon enough depending on the queue at the ATM and the
total time I might spend in the market. So I must apply
cream on my body to avoid some stuff like that. You
wouldn’t know. You’re a guy.”
“Yeah, right. You’ll have to go home then and do so
before proceeding with you plan.”
“Good idea, but my house is nowhere close.”
I didn’t know what else to say to her so I just proffered a
solution that never existed just to appear to be kind and
concerned.
“My house is just close by. I would have taken you there
so you could make use of my cream if I had one. As it is
now, na only Olive Oil I get.”
“(Cuts in) That will do! At least half bread is better than
none.?
“(My eyes wide open)What? Olive Oil? no no no. That
is definitely not good for the skin”
“Don’t worry. It is my skin. I’ll wash it off before the
day is half spent. I just need oil on my body. So let’s go.
Let’s not waste much time. There is a whole lot more to do
today besides going to the market. I also have to cook,
clean my house and wash some cloths”
“Ehm…, ehm…, ”
“What is it? You don’t want to go now? If you don’t
want to go now, just let me know so I can be on my way.

“(I stared at her, looking confused and then said); it’s
not that I don’t want to go now o o, but eeh…..,,”
“But what? In fact, I don’t know what the matter is with
you oo. I think I better get going. Thanks for everything.”
She made way for the door of the room and I rushed towards
her, held her back and said; you see…, the truth is that I
don’t have a place to stay for now. I just got into town
barely a month ago and have not gotten an apartment yet. If
I had known you were going to buy the idea of making use
of the Olive Oil, I wouldn’t have mentioned it at all. I was
just pretending to be kind and concerned. You don’t have a
place to stay? She asked. How then do you survive here? I
mean like, where is your baggage? Where do you sleep,
where do you have your bath and all that? Wait a minute,
you live in a hotel? No I don’t, replied me. That place you
saw me last night is where I spend my nights. I then
narrated everything to her and she took pity on me.
“So how soon do you plan on getting yourself an
apartment?”
“As soon as I have saved up enough money for that, let’s
say two months.”
“(She went into deep thoughts for a moment snapped out
and said) I live alone. I can’t bear the thought of letting
you continue like this when I can do something to help. That
would be against my believes. But that will only happen if
you promise to be of good character during the period of your
stay in my house.”
“Haha, don’t worry girl, I can take care of myself. I’d
rather sleep on the streets than in the house of a girl who will
have me live by her rules. What do I look like to you?
Your kid brother? Kill that! I’m a big boy, and big boys
don’t cry. I’ve been in this position before and I survived.
Thanks but no thanks.”
“Hmmm, I see your ego is getting the better part of you. I
wish you would just understand that I’m trying to help.
Come on, you’re a guy, and I’m even offering to let you
stay at my place. Isn’t that strange enough? It could be a
very big risk because I don’t know you and what you’re
capable of. But none of those matters because I’m doing
this for Christ’s sake and I believe God will save me from
any danger should you turn out to be undeserving of this
kindness. But I can’t path ways with you just like that after
what you just told me. Allow me to help. Just be of good
behavior.”
“I don’t need your help g..i..r..l. I can take care of
myself. And I must tell you to be careful of the kind of
kindness you show to people you don’t know. I could just be
a member of an occult group seeking whom to kill and
sacrifice to keep the money flowing, and then you show up
like this with such offer? You would have succeeded in
making things quite easy for me you know? Be careful! I
warn you. You don’t know who I could be.”
“Whoever you couldn’t be last night, you won’t be within
the next two months. Besides, if you were anything that
ugly, you wouldn’t be exposing yourself would you? So let’s
go.”
(After much convincing words from her, I succumbed. But
I had already agreed to her offer in my heart the moment
she voiced it out. Just that I didn’t want it to look like I
was waiting for her to say that. It also amazed me that a
girl would take a guy into her house to live with her without
even knowing him. And that she said she was doing for
Christ’s sake. Or could it be that she’s an agent of
darkness looking for guys with bright future to destroy?
Well, I’ll find that out soon)
“Seems you don’t want to let it slide. Okay, I’ll do as
you say. And know for sure that I didn’t ask for this. This
is sorely your choice. I’m just playing along because you
said you’re doing it for Christ’s sake. I wouldn’t want you
go against your believe.”
“(Murmurs) Egotistical fellow!”
“Say what?”
“(Sharply) Nothing. Let’s go.”
We left the hotel room to the ATM. She withdrew some
money and we boarded a bus to her residence. You are
welcome to my humble abode. I hope you find it very
comfortable. By the way, where are you belongings? She
asked. I came here with just a school bag and I keep it in a
store at my office. I’ll go over there later on and get it.
She raised her shoulders and said; ok then, let me prepare
you breakfast before I head to the market. Thanks, I
replied. She quickly prepared tea for me with left over bread
that was there. While I was consuming the bread, she went
into the bathroom with some set of creams and cosmetic. I
wondered what would happen to her if she didn’t apply cream
for one day. I used that time to survey the house she lived
in. It was a self-contain. She had a set of electronics and a
refrigerator in it, a bed big enough for two, a reading table
and wall hanger. I wouldn’t know what she had in her
bathroom and kitchen. This kind of houses cost a lot in
Enugu, so I concluded she must be a rich girl. After a short
while, she came out of the bathroom glowing like a diamond
in the sky. I stared at her in an unusual manner, and she
noticed. Immediately, she dropped those cosmetic in its place
and said; I’m heading for the market now. See you when I
return. Okay, I replied. She got to the door of the room
and stopped suddenly, turned towards me and asked; I forgot
to ask what your name is.
“oOhH! My name is Jesusboy”
“Like seriously?”
“Yeah, that’s my name.”
“Okay, enough with the joke. What’s your name?”
“I’m not joking. That’s my name”
“As in, that’s the name your parents gave you at birth?”
“Nope! I gave it to myself”
“And why would you call yourself Jesusboy?”
“Because Jesus is the one I claim.”
“(Kind of short of words for about 5 seconds) Okay
Jesusboy, see you when I return from the market.”
“Okay, goodbye.”
She left shaking her head and smiling. I quickly got up to
analyze her from the window. That was when I realized that
she was a beauty to write about. She had long black hair,
amazing curves and was about my height, probably my age.
Her fair skin glittered at making contact with the light of the
sun. Her slow and gentle steps made the guys around take a
second, third, fourth and fifth look at her. When I noticed
these things, I was glad that I was gonna be staying with
her for a while. I watched her until she boarded a bus to
the market before I returned to the breakfast she had
prepared for me. I couldn’t stop thinking about her
afterwards and couldn’t wait for her to return so that we
could enter into some real conversation.
