“Hello troglodyte” Susan walked into the house with a nylon bag filled with groceries.

“I have told you before, and I am saying it for the last time, the next time you call me that, i will kill you.” Sabina replied

“And you rot in jail” Sandra found her way in the couch and relaxed. “Gosh! I am so exhausted! 6rounds Sabina,  Is it easy?”

Sabina sat beside her reluctantly like she wasn’t eager to hear more of the story.

“Like, in each round he lasts 30min. I am not exagerrating, that guy is a machine. Like, I cum 5times. Kai! I can’t leave Tony for anything o” Sandra continued.

“Yeah right” Sabina replied as she checked her phone.

“Oh poor girl! You haven’t had sex in 5years, Too bad!”

“You don’t have to remind me of this, I interprete it as mockery”

“The truth is,  it’s not good for a woman to be too rich, men will be scared of you”

“So, because I am rich and can’t find a man, I should throw my money away?”

“Just don’t let them know you have money. You are too strict and bossy. Men fears you! You need to bring your shoulder down and…”

“Just shut the fuck up and get into the kitchen immediately, I hired you as a help not to mock me” Sabina interrupted her

‘Sorry”   Sandra left to the kitchen.

Sabina took Sandra’s phone immediately.


Sabina groaned in ecstasy as Tony withdrew from her and relaxed on the bed. After a few minutes of silence,

“Let’s talk! What exactly is your problem?” Tony asked

“My problem is solved already”

“You mean sex is your problem?”

“Do you know what it feels like to be single almost all your life? And the few months you had to date, your heart gets shattered like a calabash?  To be celibate for 5years. Never loved.”

“Sex is not the problem. You desire a life companion and I am ready to be that for you”

Sabina gave a wry scoff, “you are just after my money”

“You think every guy is after your money? I have been in your trail for two years now. I find you really attractive. Every Mondays to Wednesdays, you go on jogging and end up in the gym center by 6:30am. You leave there with your bottle of water always by 8:00am. And in 15mins you are ready for work. You drive to work and get there in not less than 8:45am. You request coffee and startt making phone calls”

“You have been stalking me”

“No, I have been in love with you”

“You are my help’s boyfriend!”

“No, Sandra is my cousin.”

“Wow, I feel fooled”

“I am the managing director of Chevron. Tony Wellington.” He brought out his card and gave it to her.

She took it and gasped.

“I don’t give a fuck about your money. I love you. Will you marry me?”

“Yes” Sabina was almost shouting in excitement.
