Lara was just stepping out of the shower when she heard her phone buzz. Towel wrapped around her frame, she walked over to see who had just sent the message.
“Lara baby, I will be with you in a few minutes. I’ve already given all a serious thought. I’ll see you soon. Kunle”
Wow. So she had finally lured him into her trap. She knew she was so irresistible to him. She could now treat him like her love puppet. She chose a nice knee length robe, but changed her mind and put on her lingerie and draped herself in a pink bath robe. She was going to s£duce him today, putting the final part to her plan. She was going to make sure he forgot that small girl he thought he was in love with.
Dousing herself with a touch of perfume, she put on a pair of high heels and cat walked down the stairs. She poured herself a glass of wine and sat down in the plush leather sofa, awaiting his arrival.
“Kunle, where are we? This is a big beautiful house!!!” Sheila said in admiration as they walked towards the building. “Whoever lives here must be very rich.”
“Yes” Kunle thought “so rich she had to hook herself to get here.”
They both walked up to the door. Kunle stopped her.
“Sheila, I want you to do me a favor. I want you to wait for me here. I’m sure you will be able to hear anything going on inside. I will call you in as soon as I’m ready.”
“Trust me baby, everything will become clear to you soon.”
He gave her a kiss and left her with a confused look on her face.
“Kunle darling.” Lara greeted him as soon as he stepped into the living room, standing up and opening her arms for a hug.
Swallowing the bile that was rising in his throat, he managed to keep his face deadpan as he returned her embrace. She gave him a kiss on his lips and Kunle had to force himself to respond.
They broke off and she walked towards the bar.
“Come on don’t be coy. Have some wine.”
“No thank you Lara.”
“Okay. Whatever rocks your boat.”
She refilled her glass and walked back to where he stood. She slowly pulled the slip on her robe and let it fall open, revealing the expensive black brassiere and matching [email protected] she wore. She looked hot.
Kunle forced himself to not stare. She walked towards him and sat down cross-legged.
“So tell me Kunle,” she said “did you think of what I said?”
“Yes I did. I had a very long thought about it, and I accept.” Kunle replied.
“Good. That’s very nice. I knew you wouldn’t disappoint. I think a toast is in order.”
She stood up and walked back to the bar to get him a glass of wine. In her way back, she let her robe fall and she stood in only her underwear and high heels.
“To us?” she toasted, clinching his glass.
“Yes to us.”
They sipped their wine. Kunle stared at her body for a while and chuckled.
“What’s so funny?” she asked smiling.
“Nothing really. I was just wondering – how long you had been planning this?”
“Yeah. Was it before or after the restaurant?”
Lara almost choked on her wine. Kunle smiled as he watched her cough.
“Restaurant?” she croaked, trying to get her breath back.
“Yes, the restaurant. About a month ago?”
“I don’t know what you’re talking about.”
“Really? Maybe I need to refresh your memory a bit then.”
He whipped out his phone and dialed.
“Baby, you can come in now” he said into the phone.
A few moments later the door opened. If Lara had been hit with a sledgehammer in the face she wouldn’t have been more surprised. In stepped the very pretty girl from the restaurant the other day, the very one she had tried to get rid of. Her heart began to race.
Sheila stopped, surprised to see Lara. “You!!!” was the only word she could form from her mouth.
Kunle watched the reaction on Lara’s face and smiled.
“I believe you now remember. Please meet Sheila, but yes, you’ve met before already.”
Lara was stunned. She thought back to the dream she had. This couldn’t be happening. She looked at Kunle with anger in her eyes.
“Kunle ki ni gbogbo trash yi? Who is this?”
“Oh you’re acting like you don’t remember? Don’t insult me woman. You definitely know who she is.”
“How dare you bring one of your numerous immature girlfriends to my house? I should have known you weren’t trustworthy.”
“Cut the crap.” Kunle replied, his anger now pouring out. “She may be young, but she is ten times the woman you are and will ever be.”
“Emi Kunle?!!!! How dare you?!!!”
“Yes I said it.”
“Kunle” Sheila said alarmed “who is she?”
“Sheila, meet the nemesis of my life, the woman who ruined my heart. Meet Lara.”
