HEAT 2


Hi guys, It’s Ajay again. Welcome to a new week and the latest episode of Heat. For those following us on wordpress , please note that the blog will be shut down in December 2015. Visit the site here http://www.thepassionchronicles.com.  Don’t forget to follow the girls on Rendezvous every thursday and check out what we are discussing on Random Saturdays. Enjoy!   Lolu Hassan had not slept since they both returned from  Hercules Club in Ikeja at 12.30am that morning. Ajike slept off immediately after the sex, but He had stayed awake staring at the window. He watched every movement of the moon through the open window. Ajike snored and curdled under the blanket,  while He stood vigil, not because He wanted to, but out of an uncanny fear that his wife knew his exact location. He did not care  that much about her, but  Ajike was too sweet. This is what they say about church girls. He ran his fingers through Ajike’s hair. She turned in her sleep, and grabbed his hand. Raw with passion, releasing fresh succulence from all over their bodies, Ajike was no exception. He had met her ten months before as an Executive Trainee in his office. Charming her was not too much of a challenge, even though She had a fiancé. He had learnt to play the devil , so He dangled a bit of attention,  and the exciting Lagos night life before her. His mind wandered to the first time He took her to her point of no return. They had been friends in the office for a while, and He ensured He drove her to her bus stop every night after work, and this was the time to get all the information He required. He knew about Stephen, the ambitious pianist who Ajike claimed She loved so much. He had asked her one night how much She  loved him on on a scale of one to ten. “Ten”, Ajike smiled sheepishly. “That’s a guy after God’s heart.  I love him so much.” “On a scale of one to ten, how much do you enjoy my company?” He had his thermometer questions. “I don’t know.” She smiled, avoiding his gaze. It was better She didn’t know. It was the smile that gave him his readings. That was the first night they kissed. It is always better when they don’t know. Very easy to be unbridled when you cannot define your emotions clearly. He took his chance after the kiss, and escorted her into her flat. Playing the devil was critical to being a successful cassanova. Kisses always led to feelings of love, and sparks of passion. He played by certain rules that hardly failed. That night, She moaned with pleasure. He slipped his hands beneath her blanket hoping to touch a mound, and then the light on his phone disturbed his mind and hands. This was the umpteenth time his wife was going to call him. He summoned courage to speak with her. He took the phone and tip-toed out of the room, watching Ajike’s frame on the bed for signs of distraction from sleep. “What the hell is wrong with you?” He hushed, trying not to shout. “Your brain is stuffed with hell. You think I don’t know you’re in Lagos.” His wife bellowed in anger over the phone employing her American accent. “You’re just a crazy woman.” He cut the line, and shot a glance at the door to the room. He clenched his fists in anger.  His phone rang again. “I am a crazy woman, and very soon you will see how crazy I can be. And if you love yourself…” Lolu cut the line a second time, and switched off his phone. “Who was that on the phone?” Ajike’s voice startled Stephen. She stood at the door to the room and switched on the light on the corridor. “Oh..that was mum.” He feigned composure. “I told you She suffers from manic depression.” Ajike stood silent for a while. “So when are we going to see her?” Ajike had begun to wonder if Lolu was not cheating on her. He had played down on all her requests to meet with his family. “At the right time, babe …can we talk about this later? I barely slept all night.” Lolu needed something to distract her, so He turned on the television. Her mom taught her to be patient with the men in her life. She was prepared to be a little more patient if only She did not feel guilty leaving Stephen. She prayed everything will be fine in her relationship with Lolu. Stephen’s promise of a great future had stopped working when She met Lolu.  He opened her eyes to passion, and showed her beautiful things of life. On occasions like this, when She had reasons to doubt her decision, her mind flashes back to all the times She spent with Stephen praying for a miracle  in their careers. She got a job, and Stephen was still hoping for a scholarship to attend London Trinity School of Music. Their relationship was built on a promise of hope. Lolu brought that hope alive. “I am going to church today.” She digressed. “Great. It’s a good thing to worship God” “Are you coming with me?” Ajike hoped the answer will be a Yes. She wanted to attend church with him. All her fellow choristers needed to meet the bloke for whom She left Stephen. She was sure
