“Babe can I borrow your car for tonight? I promise, there won’t be a scratch on it” Steph begged her friend, Floxy.
“But Steph, why not call a taxi?” Floxy asked
“You know the reason I came to Abuja, so using the car will hasten things for me. And I heard that some important men will be hitting the club tonight, why not join me?” Steph asked
“No Steph, I have some important work I need to take care off this night, you can go and please, drive carefully and handle the car with care, I don’t want any story.” Floxy calmly warned.
“I know babes, you don’t have to worry” Steph assured
At the club, Floxy was on solo, enjoying a glass of wine. She wore one of the designer attires one of her sugar daddies bought for her.
Steph was a poor girl who appeared classy. She can pose for Africa, and can form her way through.
The moment Gilbert sighted her, sipping her glass of wine, he quickly concluded that she was made.
He then nudged Tolu.
“Guy, I think I have found the right girl for you”
“Where is she sitting?” He asked, looking at the direction Gilbert fixed his eyes.
“See her over there.” Gilbert said, looking at her as well.
“You mean the one on yellow outfit?” Tolu asked
“Ye……sssss, she is”
“But Gilbert, how do you know she is the type I’m looking for?” Tolu asked, still looking at Steph
“See the wine in her hand. A glass of it cost 75 thousand naira, and looking at her, nobody bought it for her. She is all alone”
“Oh boy! Are you for real?” Tolu asked, trying to make a move
“But where are you going?” Gilbert asked
“To meet her off course, before another person does”
“No Tolu, you can’t meet her like that. You have to go with a glass of the wine too”
“What? But you just said that the price is 75k”
“Yes, you have to buy it”
“Guy, you are not serious. I believe the girl will accept me, weighing the expensive wrist watch I’m wearing, the expensive cloths, and also the car key. I will flaunt it for her to see, she will definitely fall for me, just watch out” Tolu said, stepping out to meet Steph.
“Tolu, you don’t know how things operate here in ABJ. If you don’t want to listen to me, then go. But don’t say I did not warn you. You will be there talking to her, another man approach, carrying a glass of the wine on his hand and she will ignore you and concentrate on the guy”
“But Gilbert, that kind of money is too much for me to spend. I can’t just waste it on a drink I did not even bargain for”
“Tolu, think of what you will gain after getting her. The girl is made, so don’t fall your own hand here. POS gadget is here, use your ATM card and get your own glass too”
After seeing some senses in what Gilbert said, Tolu reluctantly went to the Bar stand and ordered for a glass.
“Oh God, I hope I won’t regret spending this money” he was still calculating how much that will be left in his bank account when the bar attendant presented him with his own glass of the wine.
He then stylishly carried it and began approaching Steph.
Steph who saw him coming began mesmerising in fantasy. She began calculating the things he was wearing and then wished for him to come to her table.
‘Oh mehn! This guy is just made. Where is he going, please come to my side, just come please,” she wished
As she desired it, Tolu ended up on her table.
“Hello beautiful Lady, can I please join you?”
“Hmm, Ok.. you can”
“Thank you Beautiful” Tolu said, sitting down, dangling the car keys for her to see.
“What car key is that? I can’t see anything, but the design of the key shows that he is riding a very expensive car. So Steph, tonight will be your lucky moment, better play your game well”
After Tolu sat, a discussion ensued.
Gilbert who had been trying to take a good look at Steph was finding it difficult to see her face. The dim lights never gave justice to that.
“I can’t see the girl’s face clearly, but from the little view I can grab from here, she is beautiful.” Gilbert said, waiting for Tolu to finish.
The discussion between Tolu and Steph was progressing and Tolu was rejoicing in his heart his prayer was finally answered.
After the meeting, Tolu and Steph exchanged contacts. They were so happy that they had gotten serious with the type of person they want.
After that night, they began speaking with each other on the phone. Building a strong relationship based on pure lies.
After 9 days they met at the club, and calling each other on the phone, they booked for a meeting.
“So Gilbert, you will have to leave the house, so that Steph won’t get to see you” Tolu said, looking around the house making sure that everything was set so that nothing will burst his bubbles.
“Tolu, you funny die. Don’t you think that you need me here? You should present me as your errand boy or a domestic servant”
“Oh yea! Gilbert, you are always full of ideas.”
“Yes naa, since the girl will be staying for the Weekend, where do you expect me to be sleeping then?”
“Yes Gilbert, I did not even think of that. I will say my errand boy then”
“Correct” Gilbert affirmed
“Soon, Stephanie will be here, and thank you for doing this for me. Thanks for helping out” Tolu appreciated
“You don’t have to thank me, na your money naa. Have you forgotten my settlement? I’m not doing it for free, you know” Gilbert reminded
And Tolu hummed and said: “Yea, I know.”
About 1hr later, Stephanie arrived.
On sighting her face, Gilbert got entangled by her beauty.
“Oh my world! I don’t know that this girl is so beautiful like this. Choi! And on top that, she is extremely rich too. Tolu, you got yourself a gold. What a beauty”
“Gilbert, you see she is beautiful like an Angel?” Tolu asked Gilbert who was still lost admiring Stephanie’s beauty.
“Guy, no be you I dey ask? No dey lost after my woman o…. And besides, have you forgotten your role as an errand boy? Behave yourself this minute naa..” Tolu said in a low tone
And then, Gilbert returned to his senses. He readjusted himself and appeared like a real errand boy, standing beside Tolu, waiting for Steph to park the car well.
When she finally alighted, Tolu approached and gave her a warm embrace.
“Welcome to my small home” he said
“Welcome Madam” Gilbert greeted, bowing low
“That’s Gilbert, my errand boy” Tolu introduced.
“Welcome Ma” Gilbert greeted again
“Errand boy? I see! Here, my bag, carry it” Stephanie said, throwing it at Gilbert. She pretending to be acting like real boss ladies do.
“What nonsense?” Gilbert exclaimed in his heart.: “What an insult! Stephanie, thank your stars that we are targeting at something, otherwise……. Hmm….”
Tolu who saw what happened, signalled Gilbert to relax and act along.
Stephnaie then began questioning herself if she did the right thing by throwing the bag at Gilbert like that.
“I don’t even know why I did that. Anyway, that’s the way some boss ladies behave, I have to give him the impression that I’m rich. But Stephanie, you have to be very careful so that you don’t blow up your cover”
When Stephanie entered inside, she admired the interior decoration of the house.
“Oh wow! See house. Stephanie, believe it, this will soon be your house. Claim it, it will soon be your house” she said in her heart.
She then looked at Tolu and said: “Your house is nice”
“You mean here? Don’t worry, you will get to see my new house soon. It’s already in the completion stage, I will be packing in there in few months time”
“Oh my God! Stephanie, you don hammer. This guy is the real deal. Who knows how this his new house will be? Stephanie, better behave, so that you will end up as his wife” Stephanie said in her heart.
And Tolu who was busy creating lies kept looking at Stephanie’s facial expression to know if she was buying all he was saying, and the way Steph was reacting proved to him that she was accepting all he was saying.
After the introduction and all that, Tolu took Stephanie to the room.
Later in the night, around 2am, Gilbert’s phone began ringing, he then looked at the unknown number and began wondering who could be calling him at that time.
When he answered, he heard his elder brother’s voice who made an emergency exit from Malaysia.
“Brother?” He called, looking at the number he called him with again and found out that it was truly, a Nigeria number
“Brother, you are in Nigeria? How come, you did not inform me before arriving the country?”
“Gilbert, I am already in a Taxi, I will explain when I get to the house”
“OK…kkk…..k, be…coming” Gilbert said, stammering and then ended the call.. “This is not good at all, this is not good.”
He then rushed to his brother’s room to inform Tolu the unexpected development.
He knocked for Tolu to open the door, but he was not opening. He and Steph had too much to drink.
He continued banging the door, but there was no response and Gilbert was becoming anxious that his brother will soon get home since the airport was not that far from their house.
