How It Began.
What Went Wrong (14)
After much persuasion from the client, Opeyemi was forced to eat a little from the pepper soup she was served. She ate very little because a lot was going on in her head and food was the least of them as she was seated there.
A short while later, Opeyemi scanned with her eyes looking for Amanda but she was nowhere to be found. Where did Amanda go to? Why had she left her to her fate in front of a man who eats like a wolf. As she continued to search, her eyes found Amanda and her client on the dance floor. They were glaringly having a good time.
She imagined herself and her client like that too but of course, the client in front of Opeyemi doesn’t want to go to the dance floor. He would rather go to the bedroom with her first. Opeyemi imagined that this man must be fantasizing in his head how he will strip her naked and have the time of his life like he was in paradise.
Opeyemi soon began to get scared for herself. The thought of what lies ahead of the night scared her like she was about to be kidnapped. Yes, she was determined but for this, she obviously wasn’t ready.
“My dear, babim, let’s go inside.” Opeyemi’s client spoke as the pungent smell of alcohol from his mouth filled the air. “What? How could he be in such a hurry to get down with me. The night is still very young and he already wants to go inside?” Opeyemi questioned herself as she thought of the response to give him.
“Don’t be in a hurry darling, it’s just past twelve in the midnight. Why don’t you have some more beer and wait a little longer.” Opeyemi responded with a big fat smile on her face. The man couldn’t resist her, he just had to concur even after he had taken no less than six bottles of cold beer. For Opeyemi, he could drink the whole bar at the night club if he were to be permitted.
After a while, the client asked to go inside again and Opeyemi declined with another big fat smile again. When he asked again for the third time, Opeyemi knew her time was up. She knew that if she gave him another excuse that night, the client might flare up so she just gave in and they both walked down to the lodge right behind the night club together.
Opeyemi thought that she would find people who would turn their gaze to fix it on her as she walked down like they did when she entered but she was wrong. It was some minutes to 2am and those eyes that stared as she entered were either closed or red from the effect of alcohol. Most of them were dead-drunk.
What went down in that room made Opeyemi shed tears when she woke up. She had just lost her virginity to a client. It wasn’t something to be proud of. Not for a girl that was brought up in a home of fully-bred Christian brethren. This was not something she would be glad to tell her parents or anyone who cared. But it had happened, she had to move on didn’t she?
Dear reader, Opeyemi had to move on didn't she? Tell me your thoughts in the comments section. We meet again to continue the story next week. Would you be here?
