I finally sneaked out of that hell hole, it wasn’t easy but it was so worth it because my jam is blazing on the stereo.
“Hey girl” Phina screamed hugging me so tight.
“What’s up Hun?” I asked scanning the room for Fred.
“You are looking for that stupid guy of yours? He is with Tori” she added and danced towards a very handsome guy who I guess is her boyfriend. Phina is my friend but we are not that close. My besties all travelled out for the holidays, Tessa went to New York, Becky went to Dubai and Gina went to Australia. I pitched the idea to my father to travel for the holidays but he declined. Anyways I’m still here and haven’t seen Fred, I’ve tried calling but to no avail. I wandered round the room till I stopped at a table and took a seat and ordered for hard liquor, I was really trying not to get drunk because apparently tomorrow is Sunday and I don’t want to have a migraine so I just took a few glasses, I was on my third when I sighted someone, he saw me and smiled, I smiled back too and he moved from his table heading towards mine, I quickly adjusted my hair and my top. “Hello stranger!” He beckoned.
“Hi Ken” I smiled.
“May I?” He said pointing at the chair opposite mine.
“Sure” I replied.
“So why are you drinking alone?” He asked.
“My friends all travelled out and my boyfriend is no where to be found maybe he is cheating again” I replied with a faint smile. Ken cheats on me all the time, I’m used to it tho but he leaving me here was so bizarre because I sneaked out of the house just to attend this party because of him and he is lost! “Guys right?” He raised his glass in the air.
“Guys” I raised mine too before gulping it all down.
We talked for 2 hours straight, I lost the idea of time because he was a really fun person and made me laugh so hard. All this while I still haven’t seen Fred, I checked my time and it was 2am already. “I’ve to go” I interrupted him.
“Okay, can I drop you off or you have other plans ?”
“You definitely can drop me off” I smiled.

We got to his car, damn! He is rich, I mean I’m rich but he is so f*@king rich and got freedom, it was a matte black sport car. He opened the door for me and I entered placing my bag on my laps. He then walked to the other side to enter the car, this gave me time to check him out, he is so hot, his physique is perfect,with his dark hair carved right and his round eyes and long latches and his lips; OMG his lips! I must taste them, no wonder Deborah is all over him. He entered the car and zoomed off. I was face to face with my gate as Ken slowly stopped at my gate.
“Thank you” I opened the door but he grabbed me back and brush his lips with mine, he teases it for a little while before taking my lips in his, at this moment I wanted to sleep with him right there and right now but I was already home, why didn’t he do this earlier? After the long kiss, we broke apart and he kissed my forehead squeezing his number written on a white paper in my hands. “Good night” he said with a killer smile revealing his dimples.
“Good night” I smiled revealing mine also. I came down and saw him zoom off. Now another problem, how the hell am I going to sneak in again. I quickly took my phone and called my brother who I texted earlier that I was on my way home. He then came to open the gate for me. He had a spare key to the gate so on occasions like this we didn’t have to wake the gateman. I sneaked into my room, thankfully my parents wasn’t aware.
At 4am my mom already rang the bell, she does this every Sunday morning to wake the family up for morning devotion before we went to church. On other days it’s 5am or even 6am. I still felt so sleepy because I just got in bed. I managed to struggle downstairs as I saw my dad sitting in the living room with my siblings and mom was already singing praises while Kira our house help was standing and dancing. She is such a pretender! I caught her the other day having sex with the gate man and now she is pretending to be holy, that’s why I hate this holier than the holiest people, they are the worst. I joined them and sat down clapping my hands slowly, I was so tired. We had our morning devotion before I went to my room to change into something church worthy. We drove to church in silence because my mom and my dad seemed to have a little misunderstanding which I don’t care about. We alighted as my dad parked at the parking lot, I came down from the car, we arrived really early, we got there by 5:38am, church service begins by 7am and second service begins by 10am to end by 12am, then we remain in church till 5pm or even 6pm because of church counselling and meetings. We walked into the church, few church workers were already present in church. “Bless you papa!”
“Bless you mama”
That’s all I could hear as they helped my father with the bag he was carrying. I sat down for a while as Jessica went to the teens church and Jaden on the other hand was busy flirting with some weird girl.
“Joanne” I heard my name from behind. I tilted my head to see the person.
“Deb! What’s up” I dragged her to seat down by my side.
“So you came home. Wow bless Jesus” Deborah smiled
“Yes oo, ah ah Debbie must you dress like a village girl all in the name of Christianity?” I asked accessing her from head to toe, she wore a long skirt and top and tied her hair with a black scarf.
“Please J, don’t start this morning” she flared up.
“I’m sorry ooo Daughter of Christ, you know I’m Jezebel” I teased and took a quick glance at Jaden as he winked at me, I understood what he wanted me to do. “Ehnn Deb, I saw Ken yesterday” I said holding her hands.
“And?” She asked with a puzzled look
“He was asking after you, he is head over heels for you” I smiled.
“Please, I’m too young for all those things besides dating at this time could cause temptations leading me to sin and I don’t need any of that” she explained. “Not even with a pastor’s son?” I asked.
“Joanne! What are you driving at? Hope you are not talking about Jaden again?” Deborah asked raising her brow in a suspicious manner.
“Deb please my brother truly loves you and he promised that he wouldn’t touch you till you guys get married” I replied.
“Now it’s marriage?” She burst into laughter holding her tummy
“Don’t kill me with laughter Joanne, excuse me I need to go wash the toilet” she stood up and headed towards the toilet. Debbie is in the ushering department, sanctuary unit and the evangelism group.

I turned back to see Steven still looking dashing and hot as ever. Steven use to be my paddy during the good old days, he is very holy and stick to the things of God, he finished secondary school the same time with me but hasn’t gotten admission into the university, his parents are struggling so they can’t afford to send him to a private university.
“Steven!” I replied hugging him tightly.
“When did you come back?” He asked.
“Few days ago”
“And you didn’t bother to check on your paddy?” He asked.
“I’m sorry dear” I replied.
He kept lamenting and it got to a point when I talked about my boyfriend mistakenly, I didn’t want Steven to know because he would start preaching and stuff.
“So you have a boyfriend?” He asked
“Joanne my dear, you know for your age it is wrong because it can lead to premarital sex which is a great sin in the sight of God and you know that the wages of sin is death. Jesus died…”
“Please Steven, my father is a pastor, I hear sermons everyday, don’t f*@king add to it” I interrupted waving my hands in the air. “Joanne” he called out calmly.
We talked a little before he went back to church to continue his ushering. I was so bored and to my greatest surprise I saw Ken in the church premises, he isn’t a member of my church maybe Debbie invited him. “What’s up, why ain’t you inside the church” he asked.
“Please, like your Jesus himself” I teased as he giggled before taking my hands in his.
“What are you doing here” I asked.
“Debbie invited me” he replied.
“So you and Debbie?” I said raising my brows. He chuckled before replying me. “There is no me and Debbie, I’m just helping her with some school stuff and she is like my therapist, she teaches me about God and spiritual stuff” he replied.
“I see” I smiled and I felt relief, I didn’t know why I felt relief at that moment. “Have you heard from your boyfriend?” He asked peering deep into my eyes with those cute eyes of his.
“No” I replied looking away because his stare made me uncomfortable.
“I really like you Joanne like I’m crazy about you and would love to be more than just a friend” he smiled squeezing my hands romantically.
“Errm-you-what…” I stuttered because I was speechless and surprised about his forwardness.
He placed his hands on my lips indicating I shouldn’t say anymore.
“You don’t need to reply me now” he said.
“Ken I like you too and I’d love to be your girlfriend” I replied with a wide smile. That was where it all started, I started double dating. I was still with Fred and I was dating Ken at the same time.
Days later, I was preparing to go on a date with Ken when I got a text from Fred that he was in the mood for having sex, I replied him that I’d come over later since his parents are not always around they are always on a business trip. I too was in
the mood for sex so I cancelled my date with Ken and headed for Fred’s house. I got there real quick because his house isn’t that far from mine. “Baby boo” he kissed me on my lips as he opened the door.
“Don’t start I know it’s because Tori is busy that’s why you called me” I replied knowing the truth. I really like Fred or maybe I like his… Never mind but I know I can’t leave him now.
He pushed me into the chair and started fonduing my body before we had sex right on the chair, we had countless rounds before I took my bag and left for home. Immediately I got home I saw Jessica having sex in the living room, apparently my dad and mom travelled out the country for a revival and Kira went to the market and Jaden was no where to be found. I wasn’t surprised but the guy she was having sex with surprised me. I had to have a clearer look at his face to be sure.
