Lara sprayed some perfume on her skippy nightie, she walked to her
“Hmm yummy! Plan number four on point!” she laughed before
proceeding to Tony’s room.
She opened the door gently, she peeped first before walking into the
Tony was lying down on the kingsized bed, the covers were drawn
half-way stoping at his waist. His chest was bare revealing his ‘Six-
packs’ features. She craved to touch, but that isn’t on her list.
She came here to discuss something important-their marriage.
She crawled beside him, his breathing was slow and steady.
So this man can sleep?! She thought.
She shifted closer to him, how would she wake him up? She felt like
a rat trying to bell a cat.
She touched his arm slightly and…
Tony’s eyes shot open, his face transformed into a scowl.
“Sorry to disturb you…” Lara said in a shaky voice.
“What do you want?” he growled
Lara’s lips moved but no words came
“Damn it!” he sat up.
“Can’t I sleep again? Can’t you gerrit into your brain that I need to
rest? This illiterate girl is something else! Is s-ex a necessity?” he
yelled at her.
“No..I..was ..was…was..just…” Lara moved away from him terrified.
“Get outta my sight!” he barked at her.
Lara scampered out of the room full of fear and hate, she threw her
self on her bed and wept.
What would she do? She had tried all she can? Besides its not that
she’s interested in the marriage too, but she had to do this for her
He called her an illiterate! She sobbed some more.
She was definitely going to show him, Illiterates can go crazy to! She
wiped her tears, wishing for sleep to come.
The sun rays bathed her room. She glanced at the wall-clock, 7:30
She stretched lazily on her bed. She had her plans on mind, no more
cooking till further notice.
“Lara!” Tony [email protected] her door.
Devil! She hissed pulling the blanket over her head.
“Lara!!” Tony [email protected] some more, louder.
Nonsense, are you hungry? She hissed again.
“Lara?” Tony said walking into the room.
She didn’t move, she remained motionless on her bed.
“Lara!” he shook her roughly.
“Uhm? Uhm? What is it?” she muttered pretending to be just waking
He pointed at the wall clock. Her eyes followed his hand, then back at
“Ehen? So?” she asked with a frown.
Tony felt like squeezing her lips
“Are you daft or something? Don’t you know I’m running late for
work? Where’s my breakfast?” his voice was fierce.
“Illiterates don’t know how to cook!” She quipped, lying back on her
David glared at her, his eyes bloodshot
He pulled off the bed angrily, throwing her on the hard floor.
Lara shrieked in pain, she stood up to face him.
“where’s my breakfast?” he barked
“I’m fed up Tony! Did you hear me? I won’t cook in this house
anymore! Go and get a girl with masters degree to cook for you!” She
screamed at him.
He charged at her, she didn’t move, she just stood there rooted.
He stoped facing her, he brought his face close to hers
“If you don’t cook in this house, then you should be ready to go back
to your parents!” he told her.
“Hehehehe! Wonder shall never end!” she clapped her hands eyeing
“This is an opportunity I’ve been waiting for..” she laughed.
“Really?” he sneered
“Yes o! Wait and see If I will not leave! Do you think you are the only
man in the world?” she told him.
Lara flung her wardrobe open, and started throwing some clothes
into a bag. She started singing loudly.
“I’m coming home, I’m coming home, tell the world I’m coming
Tony watched her for a while, before leaving the room. He chuckled
as he walked to his car.
This girl is crazy! He thought.
He had to stop her from leaving, he suddenly felt he had a soft spot
“my oga, good moni!” Adamu- the gateman greeted him as he drove
He beckoned to Adamu, who walked up to him smiling.
“Errm, Adamu, do not let Lara out of the house.
Make sure you lock
the gate properly. Gerrit?”
“Yes my oga!” Adamu waved at him.
Atleast, he would stop her from leaving! Tony thought quitely as he
