I pulled off my heels and walked barefooted towards the General. The sweat in his hairy belly irritated me. It looked like a pig who had smeared its body with black mud. It dripped like catarrh from the nose of a grown up man.
General Abdullahi closed his eyes and opened his hands wide, like a child who runs to embrace his mother. As I approached him, I shut my eyes tight and placed my head above his shoulders. I could not embrace him.
The pot belly of the general, was like a barrier stopping my breast from touching his chest. General Abdullahi did not hesitate to wrap his fat hands around my back. He pulled me closer to him and ensured that my breast touched and pressed upon his chest.
“Kai kai kai… wai…wai!” The General exclaimed.
“What is it general?” I asked rather confusingly, pulling out of his tight embrace.
“Kemi. Kemi. Since I know a women. Sorry a woman. I have not hug something soft like this one. Gaskiya you look like breadi. Fresh baked breadi.”
“General do you mean bread?”
“Yes Kemi. Bread. You are soft like breadi. Wooooo! Kai. Come and sit down. Sit down for here.”
General Abdullahi held my right hands tight and dragged me to his bed. Before now, I had already known that one way or the other, I was going to end up on the bed of the General. What else did I expect when I agreed to meet him in his private lounge? I knew his plans from the beginning. But I was only ready to give in to him, so I could have my revenge on the three people who had broken my heart and caused me bitter pains.
I stared at my heels which I had placed beside the cushion, and also my purse and phone which was on the cushion. I tried to convince myself that there was another way out of this. But then my phone rang again, and the name Alex brought back the hurtful memories.
Why was he calling me again? What else did he have to tell me? A man who could take advantage of a ladies drunk state, to sleep with her without her consent deserved to die. Alex must have had unprotected sex with me.
I remembered the semen I had seen on my body that morning. I remembered how naked I was, and how I was covered with a blanket and made to feel like a slut. I remembered all those and became hurt and angry again. The more I thought about it, the more my crave for vengeance increased.
General Abdullahi kept touching my hands and robbing it softly. He kept smiling sheepishly and sweating like one who had finished boxing. I picked the blanket on the bed and wiped the sweat from his face.
“Thank you Kemi. You are so nice gaskiya. So so nice.”
“General why are sweating? Where you working out?” I asked.
“Working where? La illah. Does this kind of belly look like one that undergoes any working out? Kemi why won’t I sweat when I was thinking of you from the moment you said you want to meet me in secrete?
“You have just been running through my mind like a Kaza. Kaza is chicken Kemi. You know how the cock follows the chicken and the chicken runs and runs? That is how you were running. I was the cock, you are the chicken.” He laughed.
I laughed at the way the General spoke. He seemed to have a very good sense of humour. Sometimes his Hausa intonation made me laugh. Especially when he pronounced ‘Come’ as ‘Cam’ and replaced the letter ‘R’ for ‘L’.
“Kemi your laugh; your laugh is beautiful. Do you know I do not know what I am even doing with your friend Temi? You are a wife materialistic. I feel like swallowing you now. I want to… I want to.. I want to kiss you.”
He pushed his head closer to my face, and pouted his lips towards mine. I pulled backwards but General Abdullahi followed me with his pouted lips relentlessly.
“General wait. Wait.” I pressed firmly on his chest.
“Kemi what? What is it. Let us do this thing nau. My body is hot. I am on fire. Do you want an old man like me to die of conji? I want to chop you. Kai.” He landed his hand on his bald head.
“General. I will give it to you just the way you want it. But first I need something from you. I need your help. That was why I asked to see you.”
“Kemi money is not the problem. I will transfer one million to you to solve any problem you have. Allow me to eat your bush meat Kemi. Allow me.” General Abdullahi pushed towards me again.
“No its not about money. Its something different.” I pushed his face.
He stopped and pulled back. General Abdullahi heaved a sigh and kept staring at me piercingly.
“Any problem that one million naira cannot solve, that problem needs a miracle.”
“Kemi what is bothering you?”
“I was defiled by a guy today. He worth more than one million naira. He is connected too. He once told me that his father is very wealthy.
“Alhaji I do not want to do this, but I will do it if only it will get me the revenge I really want. I am ready to sleep with you if you promise to help me out. Please General. Help me out.”
“Defiled? Who defiled you? How did you defile? What do you mean by defile?”
“A man had sex with me without my consent General. He raped me.’
“Rape you? Who is the man to you? How is the man?”
“He is my boyfriend – my fiancee. He had sex with me while I laid on his bed drunk and unconscious last night. He took advantage of me.”
I broke into tears while I spoke. I was broken and hurt by the next words I was about to say. I struggled with my words. I struggled to let it out.
“Calm down Kemi. Calm down.” General Abdullahi patted me on my back and drew me close.Kindly share out stories from generalloaded.com using the floating social media icon buttons on the bottom of the screen
“After I realised what had happened to me this morning, I drove to my best friends house to seek comfort, only to realise that she has been sleeping with my ex boyfriend too. I saw him coming out of her house.”
“Who? Which best friend. You mean Temi? My own Temi?”
“Yes. Your Temi. She has been seeing another man behind your back. She has been dating another man and sleeping with him. That man is my ex boyfriend. The same man that hurt me two years back, and broke my heart into tiny pieces.
General Abdullahi drew me closer to him. I rested my head on his chest as he tried to comfort me. I felt like I was being cuddled by my own father.
“Kemi, even though Temi is just a concubine to me, I will still deal with her in my own way. But I will ensure that those two bastard, especially that Idiot that has been sleeping with my own Temi is seriously dealt with. He will regret ever knowing General Abdullahi Abubakar. He will regret it gaskiya.
“And to think that bastard is eating what a general is eating. Does he even know how much I have spent to keep what he is eating clean? I will deal with him.” He spoke angrily.
“Thank you General. Thank you.” I embraced him tightly and heaved a sigh of relieve.
General Abdullahi lifted my head up and licked his lips like a dog. In his eyes I saw lust. He looked down and took a quick look at my breast and then my face. I bent my head and caught sight of his erected penis, which pushed his towel up.
Without saying a word, he lifted my head up with his hands and kissed my lips. He pushed me to the bed and I fell with my back. I felt his arms wrap around my neck firmly as he got on top of me. With his left hands, he loosened the towel, and flung it to the floor.
I hated gowns from the very start. It was the reason I never wore a gown to a guys house during my school days. I preferred to wear tight jean trousers that was not easy to pull down. It had saved me several time when I found myself in situations such as this.
He pulled my gown up effortlessly, and pulled down my pants even when I tried to fight his hands off.
“Kemi you are beautiful. Let me off the light. I want to enjoy your body and give you the best.” He cooed.
General Abdullahi stood up and walked hurriedly towards the switch. He turned the bright light off and the room became dark. All I could see was the faint light from the sockets and a power bank.
“General, I am not doing this because I want to. I am not doing this because I love you. I am doing this as a price to get revenge for a heart that have been hurt. Make love to me if you must, but promise me, promise me you will help bring pains to those three who have hurt me. Promise me that you shall bring me vengeance. Promise me General. Please promise me.” I spoke with tears rolling down my eyes.
“Kemi I promise you, they will pay the price for ever hurting you.”
