Written by Amah
Viva was able to get Betty to tell her Tony’s weak point, as usual she engaged her in a conversation while trying to get information from her about Tony and other things she may nee-d in her quest to get Tony to herself, and she eventually succeeded,
Betty poured out everything to her Neighbor friend Viva, not knowing Viva had a secret agenda.
So one day at night when Tony and Betty were preparing for be-d that night Viva c@m£, acting all scared up of something, she was p@n-ting seriously as if something was wrong, Betty went to her to calm her down while Tony stood to watch waiting for her to be calm so that she can tell them what the problem is, Viva pretending to be crying as she stammered to explain to them what happened, Betty held her as she tried to explain.
“I was alre-ady in be-d slee-ping when this strange noise woke me up, at first I thought it was the air condition which developed fault yesterday, the whole place was h0t and the fan wasn’t helping at all, but I managed to sleep like that, I planned to call our technician to come check if he nee-d to refill g@s in it, so when this noise woke me up, I sat up on the be-d looking round the room, I put on the light just to be sure of my environment, as I looked round that was when I saw this ugly looking monster rat, it was so scary, the rat ran un-der my dressing table, if you have listened very well you would have heard my loud scream, I screamed so loud when….when..i saw the ugly rat in my room, ooh…no…I can’t sleep in my room if that rat is not out tonight…I can’t sleep in that house…I hate rats…I don’t like seeing one around. I’m allergic to rats since I was a child, that is why I don’t like them…you un-derstand now…is so painful that Richa-rd is not around…he could have find a way to deal with that rat…
Betty felt sorry for her as she watched Viva sobbe-d, she was willing to help her in anyway she can so that she can feel safe,
“If you are not comfortable in your house because of the rat…you can come and spend the night over here, there’s enough room here for you and Josh and also your maid, i will personally make sure it is comfortable for you…
“no…no Betty, I can’t come and inconvenience you and your family, I will rather stay at my place but I nee-d other help from you and Tony…hope I won’t be asking for too much…
“I don’t mind and I know Tony too doesn’t mind, but anyway we can be of help then I we will be glad to help…even if to I have to come over and stay with you till day break I will do that, or better still come over and stay with us…what exactly do you want and will we be glad to help
Viva looked up at Tony who was sitting down now and listening to her speak, her plan was alre-ady working and she will soon smile,
Tony was just listening to Viva, he wondered why she was so scared of a common rat, he un-derstands that some people are scared of little things as spider, but his wife Betty will never run out of the house because of a rat, he felt bad as he watched her sob and panicked while Zila was trying to console her, Tony thought it was Richa-rd ‘s abs£nce that was affecting her.
“plea-se can Tony come over to my place and check if he can chase the rat out of my room…plea-se that is all I nee-d…Tony plea-se don’t deny me of this…I really nee-d you to go with me, Richa-rd will really appreciate…plea-se hope I’m not asking for too much…?
Tony shook his head as Betty gave him a pleading look. Tony told Viva that she should find another alternative and by tomorrow he will call someb©dy that will help her with that.
“Tony plea-se…don’t turn me down. Richa-rd will do same for you if he was around and you are out… there’s no alternative for me and I definitely can’t come here and stay, and as far as there is rat in my house I can’t sleep in it…I will have allergies…that is the more reason I’m worried…I would have loved Betty to come but we are both women…and you know women are weaker vessels compared to a man’s figure…I will feel more safe with a man around the house…Betty plea-se beg him..
“Tony…plea-se go with her…she is my friend and our neighbour and she nee-ds our help…this is the little we can do for her…plea-se…since she said she will feel more safe with a man figure and you know Richa-rd is not around…is just for few minutes or an hour and you will be back…she feels unsafe in her house and nee-ds our help…
Tony didn’t want to go, she kept trying to convince Viva that she will be fine but she was insisting on him coming and when Betty joined her in pleading he had no choice than to give into their request despite the fact that he felt awkward with that, he followed Viva to her ap@rtment with some rodent killer that will chase Viva’s invisible rat off from it’s hiding.
On getting to Viva’s ap@rtment, she took him to her room and to where she saw the invisible rat, while Tony tried to spray the odorless rat killer Viva was busy changing into her skimpy transparent night wear, as Tony turned and saw her almost n-ked he quic-kly turned away and apologized and tried to leave but Viva begged him not to go because she just saw the rat ran un-der the be-d while he was backing her, Tony told her that what he sprayed will chase off the rat and she should feel safe because the rat can not stay in such h0t environment, Viva said okay and pointed at her air-condition if he has an idea how to fix it for her, Tony shakes his head that he doesn’t but he will help her get someb©dy who will come check it by tomorrow
Viva insisted that he should try first if the air condition will come on, Tony used the air conditioner remote control to see if the air coming out is h0t but to his surprise the air condition was working perfectly well, it was cooling, Viva acted surprise and excited as the Ac c@m£ on, she ran and hvgged him, Tony tried to push her off gently because she was still half n-ked, but she held onto him like a lost child. Tony was still trying to keep her off from him as he was moving slowly to the exit door but Viva wasn’t re-ady to go off, she started tou-ching him se-ductively, using everything she has learnt from Betty to arou-se him, she started acting as if she was tou-ching her husband as she kept mentioning Richa-rd instead of Tony,
Tony felt she was probably missing her husband that was why she was acting in a s£dûçt!vemanner, but he didn’t want to pu-ll her off with f0rç£. He was gently shifting her off as he held the door knob, Viva’s tricks were taking effect on him and he wondered how she got to know where and how to t©uçh him like she was doing, it was only Betty that un-derstands his weak point but Viva seem to be an expert with it, his knees where alre-ady shaking as he tried to pu-ll off, he shouted her name to st©p it but Viva pretended not to hear or care, she started k!ss!nghis n£¢k and his mouth, Tony was trying to be strong but his strength was obviously failing him, he tried but he was alre-ady shaking and Viva won the Battle as he began to k!$$£d her back, he loos£ned his hand on the door knob and gr@bb£d her forgetting himself, he was not thinking anymore as he and Viva went into a h0t r0m@nç£and they both landed on the be-d just as Viva always wanted, Viva felt so happy because she was had finally won.
Betty was waiting for Tony in be-d and didn’t even know when she sle-pt off, Tony sneaked back in and went into the shower, he felt so bad for what happened between him and Viva, he also felt unclean and tried to wash off the immoral act, he scru-bbe-d himself with sponge but the memory was in his head, he stayed un-der the shower for long, hoping the water will wash him clean, he has never cheated on his wife before and has promised her that such will never happen, he had as-sured, sworn and promised Betty he will never in his life time hurt or cheat on her with any other woman, he felt so bad as the water poured down from his head.
He has cheated on his precious wife with her friend and neighbour, he wished it was a bad dream but it was reality, he wondered how Viva got to know his weak point and also know where and how to t©uçh him just as Betty does, and no doubt Viva was good at it, he tried to resist but his strength failed him, how can he even face his wife or look her in the face with the guilt that was built up in him.
Tony hated himself for agreeing at first with Betty to go over with Viva, who he felt was missing her husband, Tony felt he took advantage of a hor-nyViva not knowing it was all a set up, Viva has always wanted it and she has finally succeeded. Tony felt like beating himself for doing what he promised his wife he will never do.
After he was finally out of the shower he went to be-d quietly not trying to wake his wife who was de-eply asleep, Betty was suddenly awoken when Tony was quietly trying to sneak into be-d, Betty checked the time it was 1 :59am. Its being over three hours Tony went to help Viva out, Tony spoke first before she could say anything,
“I’m sorry….i…I didn’t want to disturb your sleep…sorry for waking you…
“You stayed long…I was waiting for you before I sle-pt off…are you just coming back…
“..No… no…being back since…was watching television in the sitting room and I also took a shower…plea-se go back to sleep…
“What of Viva…were you able to help her feel better… Because she was so tensed up because of the rat…hope she is feeling better now…
“yeah…i…sh…she’s better now…
“thank you darling…that is more reason why I love you…you always listen to me and does whatever I ask you to do…you didn’t want to help her until I asked you to go and you listened…I love you always…
“yea…i….i..lo..v…e…you too..
He stammered as he tried to reply Betty, guilt was eating at him…he felt like confessing his sin but he dared not do that, Betty will be totally broken, as Betty tried to t©uçh him that night he told her he was tired from helping Viva chase off the rat, Betty un-derstood him that he never says no to her and tried not to stress the issue, she went into his arm and sle-pt off again.
All Tony could think of that night was Viva even as his wife lied beside him…how can he undo what he did with Viva, Viva’s face was all in his head as he sh0t his eyes and tried to f0rç£ sleep to come but sleep was far off from him as he l@yawake.
To be continued…
Viva has finally gotten what she had always wanted. What do you think the future holds?
