Bossladies Nest 35: In every woman is dove, viper

Alone in her room, Adele switched on Jay’s phone. The battery was almost dead. She plugged it to a charger and went to fasten her room door properly. A phone rang. It was the other phone in the lady’s bag. She took the phone: ‘Aunty prophetess’ calling. She frowned. She dropped the phone on her dressing table and went to take a bath. ……. Immediately Debola stepped out of Jay’s gate, she realised that she didn’t leave with her handbag. Haaaaaaaaaaaaaaa! She had forgotten to pick it from the dining…

Bossladies Nest 34: The inconnu

  Jay dragged himself up from the bed. He was still drowsy. He tried to sift through what Debola just told him. He remembered the accident, the hospital and the journey home in a cab with Debola but was confused. He wasn’t sure which day of the week it was. Yes, he had the accident on Sunday and slept in the hospital that night. He was discharged the following day, which should be today. So, what could Debola be talking about sleeping over? He stared at her and asked, “Why…

Bossladies Nest 33: Love always seems sweeter outside

  Debola woke with a start. She looked around her wildly, wondering where she was. A faint aroma of wasabi was in the air. Then, she remembered: she was in Jay’s house. She tiptoed to Jay’s room, her heart beating wildly. What if he had woken up? She heaved a sigh of relief when she pushed the door open quietly and found him as she left him -sleeping peacefully. She closed the door ever so gently behind her and went back to the living room. It was almost 5pm. Where…

Bossladies Nest 32: Indeed, death is a woman!

Adele and Bolan stared at each other. The well-regulated hospital air conditioning system purred. Suddenly, Bolan reached out and took Adele’s hand. They were united in grief. It’s almost 3am. They had not slept a wink. “My angel, you need to sleep or you’ll get really sick,” he told her gently. “How ill can I get again? Am I not ill already?” She asked him. “You know what I’m talking about. After a hard day’s job, you need a good night rest,” he said coolly. “A good night rest in…

Bossladies Nest 31: You never know with women

Juliet Bumah Jay watched Debola as she stared at his wife’s picture. He wondered why he allowed Debola into his home. Was he thinking at all? How could he allow his mistress into a home he shared with his wife who went to the office and would be back in the evening? What was Debora’s aim of insisting she followed him home when all she needed to do was to see him into a cab? He felt very uncomfortable. What if the security man mentioned it to his wife that…

Bossladies Nest 30: Everyone has a story

  Adele stared at Bolan as he took her to his past. He was so lovable! An exact opposite of her husband, Jay. As Bolan told his story, she could see he had transported himself into the past and was reliving the event he was narrating. She could read pain, anger, joy on his face at intervals. He stopped talking suddenly and remained immobile. He was struggling with something inside of him. She let him. The small hand of the clock had inched past 1am and the night was hot.…

Bossladies Nest 29: The hunger within

  It was almost midnight when Bolan drove into the hospital. He had done ‘fast and furious’ and got there in record time. What could be wrong with Adele, the only woman whose thought brought laughter to his soul? Adele seemed to attract positives to him. Since he met her, things had been going so smoothly in his life. His health had improved tremendously: his blood pressure had stabilised at an all time normal. He smiled. He hadn’t entered a health facility in months after years of having his personal…

Bossladies Nest 28: Homeless landlady

Tuesday looked so promising and Adele was very happy. The only dark spot was the fact that Jay hadn’t answered her calls or called back, neither did he respond to her text messages. It wasn’t the first time such would happen but she just wasn’t feeling too cool about it anymore. By midday, she got really worried. Why wasn’t he answering her calls? Could something be wrong? An icy hand grabbed her chest and her heart raced. Jay detested her getting family involved whenever he didn’t return home. The last…

Bossladies Nest 27: Squirting is a feeling to know!

  Adele drove into her house very happy. She hummed to the soft tune seeping from the car stereo. It had been an enjoyable evening with Bolan. She would see him tomorrow at lunch time. Time to live happy. She smiled as she nosed the SUV into the garage. Obviously, Jay had gone out again because the car he drove in when she was going out wasn’t in the garage. She wasn’t bothered. “Good evening madam,” the security man greeted. “Good evening dear. Oga went out?” She asked. “Yes madam.…

Bossladies Nest 26: Don’t blame the gods

  Debola entered the doctor’s office, still clutching Jay’s wallet. He was scribbling something on a piece of paper. He looked up. “Sit down madam,” he said gently. “Thank you doctor. Now tell me the truth. Is he going to be alright?” Debola asked. A smile flickered across the doctor’s face. “Yes he’s going to be fine and will be on his feet in a few days time. The bruises and cuts are superficial. We’ll run further tests, especially on his knees. We need to do further checks on the…
