MY DESIRE
EPISODE 53

JOSHUA’S POV
i didn’t know she has never played the game before… but I was sure of what she was going to ask me….that was why I decided we play a game instead.

she was so excited about it that she said I should go first.

SONIA
you play first and does it have rules?

JOSHUA
someone seem excited about this game

SONIA
you bet, I’m so excited…… let’s play it already

JOSHUA
the game is called truth or dare…. and the rules of the game is….you must be honest and say nothing but the truth….. not just that, you must do whatever the game says

SONIA
I get it….so shall we start?

JOSHUA
when did you find out you have feelings for jack?

SONIA
I would rather you said “had” because the feelings are gone….. I don’t even know when I started crushing on him…. maybe the I first came here?

JOSHUA
it’s been a long time then….and I’m glad the feelings are gone… so, now is your turn

SONIA
why did you decide to become a ga-y?

JOSHUA
(I was expecting that)
just like you, I don’t know….i met Tommy when I was in ss1 and I found out my heart couldn’t stop beating in a funny way…. I immediately started crushing on him…. I did everything in my power so he could talk to me but the guy snubbed me ooh .

SONIA
If I ask you another question that would be going against the rules right?

JOSHUA
yeah, wait for your turn… now is my turn…. have you and jack ever been intimate? you know you both are always in your room.

SONIA
we have klzzed once
(she said heart lightedly)

was I jealous hearing that she and jack shared a klzz and I haven’t even pecked her? of course yes I was jealous…

JOSHUA
oh I see…. so your next question.SS.

SONIA
you said in this game we can also dare people right?

JOSHUA
yeah, you can dare me to dance, transfer money into your account, bathe with cold or hot water, walk out [email protected]£d…. anything.

SONIA
can I dare you to peck me?

I smiled, not just any kind of smile, but that one that comes from a grateful heart… how did she know I was feeling jealous hearing her say she and jack klzzed

JOSHAU
are you telling me to klzz you or you just want to know?

SONIA
both, I want to know if I can dare you to klzz me…. and yes….that is my dare.

She turned her side cheeks for me and touched it, giving me signal to klzz her there… I moved closer to her face and planted a slow and calm klzz on her left cheeks…. she smiled and sat comfortably well on the bed like nothing had happened…. but my heart was racing like it was going to explode…. I was so scared that she would hear the sound of my heart beat that I had to use my hands to place on my chest.

SONIA
now is your turn….

JOSHUA
I don’t even know what to ask anymore… my heart is beating fast

SONIA
(She laughed)
don’t tell me you have never pecked a woman before?

JOSHUA
I have pecked a lot of women, but I don’t know why I’m feeling this way with you.

SONIA
(she laughed more)
So it’s your turn…ask me anything

JOSHUA
why did you klzz jack? and who initiated the klzz?

SONIA
he was drunk and we klzzed…. that was all that happened.

JOSHUA
oh I see…. so, your next question?

SONIA
should I dare you or just ask you a question instead?

JOSHUA
whichever one you want

SONIA
was your mother aware that you liked boys?

JOSHUA
Yeah, mum was never in support….she hated herself for failing to raise me well…

SONIA
I wish she’s alive now to see how you are trying [email protected] to live normal.

JOSHUA
I wish too, and this is the time I missed her the most….. you know why I decided to keep you as a friend? even when Tommy was disturbing I s£nd you away?

SONIA
why?

JOSHUA
Because you reminded me so much of my mum, she hated my ways but she never hated her son…. everyday mum was in church praying for me to change…. the day my mum died… guess where she was coming from? church….she did an all night at the church and was returning home the next morning…. she didn’t get to the house….she died on the way.

SONIA
was it an accident? or what?

JOSHUA
no, according to the doctor mum had heart disease but she begged to keep the information from me…. knowing that she was sick that woman didn’t border about her health, she kept fasting and fasting, praying and praying until she finally met her end…. it broke my heart, it hurt me even more that I couldn’t be a better man for her….and I wasn’t even rich then….. a year after mum I got a big contract…a contact that changed my life forever….

SONIA
I can imagine what you had to go through after you got that sudden wealth.

JOSHUA
Welcome to Nigeria, people said I used my mum to do ritual and that was why she died so suddenly…. I swear on my dad and mum’s grave I never killed my mother.

SONIA
and you think I don’t know that? of course I do….you can be many thing, but ritualist is not one of them.

JOSHUA
thanks for believing me.

SONIA
that’s okay…. how’s your head now?s
(she asked trying to light up the mood)

JOSHUA
my head is calm down….. but I’m feeling tire….I think it’s the drug.

SONIA
let’s sleep then.

JOSHUA
yeah, let’s go to bed.

She got up and went into my bathroom, I guess to ease herself, she came back few minutes later and laid beside me… she carried my head and place on her chest.

SONIA
goodnight

JOSHUA
can you peck me?

SONIA
(she giggles)
sure

She lowered her l!ps and klzzed my forehead, she used her hand to wipe my forehead like there was a l!pstick there or something.

SONIA
goodnight

The klzz made my heart to start beating fast again…. I smiled and held my chest like it was going to fall off.

SONIA
close your eyes and sleep

JOSHUA
yes ma’ma I’m doing that right now.

I turn off the lights because it was closer to where I laid.

SONIA’S POV
The next morning I woke up very late, maybe because I was exhausted from last night stress….I looked around but couldn’t find Joshua… where could he have gone to?

As I was about to come downstairs from the bed he walked into the room.

JOSHUA
Good morning beautiful

SONIA
good morning, where did you go? I woke up and didn’t find you beside me

JOSHUA
come downstairs, I have something to show you.

SONIA
something? and what could that be?

JOSHUA
just follow me.

he pulled my hand and started to go downstairs…. he took me to the dinning room and helped me to sat down… I was confused, I didn’t know if I should cry or laugh at what was in front of me…. he had prepared a feast for me in the name of breakfast…. someone who was sick yesterday.

MY DESIRE
EPISODE 54

MERCY’S POV
I remembered when I told my mum about JJ, she said she will help me get him but I should go finish with my studies…. a school I heard his scandal about being a ga-y….i wanted to come back so badly to stay with him and help him come out from all that social media stress…. but mum won’t let me…. she said it wasn’t time yet.

I had to force myself to study, I studies so [email protected] so I can be the woman JJ needs and wants.

I came back from my youth service and immediately got a job…. yeah, I’m a very pretty lady and no man that sees me that wouldn’t want to keep me.

After my service my boss didn’t want me to leave so he turn me to a permanent staff in his company…. his paying me for working and his paying me extra for being se-xy…. if you know what I mean.

Mr biggiee has money but I don’t like him, his very short and very ugly…. when he speaks saliva would be fallig off his mouth….. he wants to make me his second wife….but God forbid….I am just after the money….so I can’t marry him.

It was weekend and I didn’t go go work, I laid in bed thinking of how JJ and I would live the rest of our lives with our children running around.

A slight knock came at my door, and I asked the person to come inside.

MERCY
mum, don’t tell me that big belly man is here to see me…. just go and tell him I’m not around.

MUM
(She laughed)
is that how much you hate that man?

MERCY
haaa, with everything in me mum…. have you seen him when he talks?

MUM
common, his not as bad as you make it sound… he has a big belly, a long head, aside that his very cute.

MERCY
just tell me his not outside right now

MUM
no one is here to see you, I came to inform you that there’s a place I will like us to go tomorrow.

MERCY
hope is not where it involves me spending money? because mummy you and daddy will finish my money ooh.

MUM
like we complained when you were busy finishing ours in the name of school? my friend be careful

she got up and walked to the door, turn and looked at me

MUM
make sure you ain’t on your period.

MERCY
I’m not on my period mum, and I already saw my period for the month.

MUM
okay…. because if you go in with your period, you will come out with madness.

She said and left the room…. I immediately became scared, where is mum taking me to that requires me not being on my period… well, I will wait and see.

The next morning I woke up not remembering mum and I had to go somewhere… she came to my room only to meet me still in bed

MUM
are you still in bed?

MERCY
today is Sunday mum, I’m not going to work

MUM
didn’t I te you that we will be going out today?

MERCY
oh my God, I’m so sorry mum I totally forgot….

MUM
Now that you remember, go and take your bathe and meet me outside.

MERCY
okay mum

I quickly rushed to my bathroom to take my bathe….few minutes later I was through bathing…. I went straight to my wardrobe to look for what to wear… mum came in and told me to wear trouser and I shouldn’t wear heels because my legs were going to hurt if I did…. I obeyed her and dressed the way she wanted.

few minutes later we were out of the house in my car… yeah, you heard me right, my car… Mr biggie bought a car for me just six work of working as a youth corp in his company…. he said he didn’t like me stressing myself and spoiling my color.

Who would refuse a gift like that? I accepted the car gift even though I know I can never and will never marry him.

THREE HOURS LATER.
MERCY
I wonder where we are going to that we had to drive for three hours mum

MUM
we are already at the place.

MERCY
I just hope something good comes out of this shady place.

Mum didn’t answer me, I drove for a few more minutes and she asked me to park the car…

We parked the car and walked for almost an hour before we reached our final destination.

The place was a very big and large bush, I’m very sure no human being would be living in a place like yhis…. or so I thought.

We saw a little hunt that was covered with white and red pieces of clothing

MERCY
mum, where is this that you have brought me.

MUM
shut up and follow me… hope you are not on your period?

MERCY
mum I told you yesterday, I have already seen this month period….

MUM
good…. take off your shoes and follow me inside.

Mum took off her shoes and entered the small hunt, I took off my boots took and entered…. the place looked so creepy that I almost peep on my [email protected]…. immediately we entered mum walked to a status and klzzed it’s feet, she dragged me to do the same and I did…

I wondered who we have come to see because no one was in sight

As if the man could read my thoughts, immediately a scary laughter came but we did hit see anyone… I got scared and ran to hide behind my mom.

Suddenly an elder man appeared before us, he went to that same status mum and I klzzed and worship it before he took his seat and asked us to seat down too.

MUM
baba I greet you

BABA
thank you my daughter

MERCY
good afternoon sir

BABA
welcome

MUM
Baba I have come with my daughter to….

BABA
I know why you are here, I have been expecting you.

MUM
thank you baba…. so, baba how do you think you can help this my daughter? she really likes this man and want the man to marry her ….but this man doesn’t like women at all… he likes men.

After mum finished talking, the baba did some incantation and then faced mum to say

BABA
not anymore, the young man is already falling for a woman…. and if I must be honest, it’s the woman he was Destiny to be with from the start

I didn’t know this was the help mum was talking about a year ago when she said she would help me get JJ…. she want me to win him by diabolical means?

well, I don’t mind, so long I’m not going to kill anyone….I don’t mind…..but what is he saying about JJ falling in love with a woman? his destined woman? is it a joke or what?

MERCY
who is that woman that want to come and reap where she did not sow? I’m not going to seat back and allow her do this to me….who is the woman?
(I demanded angrily)

baba looked at me and smiled, he turn to face his gods and did another incantation before he turn to me and said.

“he is falling in love with a woman you know very well”
