Lost In Lust - Episode Two

„Ola, my man. Good morning.'

I reciprocated his greeting, waved at him and moved on.
I worked in the bakery owned by my uncle as Assistant Production Supervisor. It was a big bakery with branches in Ikeja and Ota. The pay was modest but okay for me. Besides, we enjoyed some benefits like a free big loaf every day, weekend bonus and hazard allowance.

Since I was still a bachelor and I was still staying with my uncle, I had all my earnings to myself. All the same, I was prudent and had been able to have some substantial savings.
The place of work was at Agric, Ikorodu. I got there few minutes to eight. I went to change to my overall and started working.

I actually enjoyed the work, although the heat from the industrial oven could be suffocating. I worked conscientiously, not minding the fact that my uncle owned the place.
We had many customers – whole sale distributors - who came from far and near places. We were always busy and hardly had time for frivolities.

I must say that I always took my loaf home and would hand it to my uncle‟s wife for the family. There was no way I would be eating bread every day!
By six p.m, my duty was over. I went to the shower room to wash off the sweats and dirt my body had accumulated. I then changed back into my clothes.


Those who would do the night shift had already come. I bade the workers goodnight and stepped out of the company premises. As I worked towards Agric bus stop, I noticed that a Lexus jeep was parked by the road. The door of the driver‟s side was open and a petite but pretty woman was talking on the phone, sounding agitated.

I overheard her expressing apprehension that the mechanic she had called to come and fix the car had not come.
I paused briefly, and moved to her. She finished her conversation and looked on.
„Excuse me, madam. Are you having problem with the car?‟ I asked.
„Yes. Do you know any mechanic around?‟

I shook my head. „Perhaps, I can be of help. Perhaps, I should ask what exactly is the problem with the car?‟
„It stopped working and will not start,‟ she said. To demonstrate this, she tried to start the car.
The engine whirled but failed to start.
„Can you please open the bonnet?‟ I said. „I work with engines.‟

She became hopeful and smiled. The bonnet was unlocked. I opened it wide and checked the carburetors and the plugs. I unplugged the plugs, blew air to remove dusts or any particles and plugged them back. I then checked the battery wire connection and tapped on the heads.
„Can you start the car again?‟ I suggested.

She did and was pleasantly surprised that the engine roared into life. I was pleased with myself too.
„Wow, that was good. You‟re good at that.‟
„It‟s okay,‟ I replied modestly. „It‟s only a minor problem.‟
„Oh, thanks so much,‟ she replied. „You‟ve saved me a lot of hassles.‟
I closed the bonnet. „Alright, madam. Good night.‟

„Wait.‟ She dipped her right hand into her hand bag and brought some folded currency notes. „Come and have this for your trouble.‟
„Oh, no, ma‟am. Don‟t worry.‟
„Oh, come on. It‟s just a token.‟
I shook my head. „No, ma‟am. Thank you.‟

She seemed a bit surprised. „Alright.‟ She returned the money inside her purse and brought something else out. „Here, this is my complimentary card. Can you have this?‟
I paused only briefly. „Okay, ma‟am.‟
„Make sure you call me,‟ she said and closed the door of her car.

I thanked her, put the card in my breast pocket and moved on. I crossed the main road to the side where I would take a bus going to Ikorodu. From there, I would take another bus to Ibeshe, where I lived.
As soon as I got to the house, I went to the kitchen so I could take a bottle of cold water from the fridge. There was a pot on the gas cooker. Cooking was already going on. I was about to pick a glass cup when Joyce entered.
„Hello, there,‟ she said.
„Hello, Joyce.‟
„How was work?‟

„Fine. How was school?‟
„Not bad.‟
I opened the bottle and poured some water inside the glass cup. She was staring at me.
„What did you bring for me?‟ she asked.
I pointed at the nylon bag I placed on the kitchen table. „A loaf of bread for the family.‟
„That one is for the family. I‟m talking about what you brought for me.‟ She had emphasized the word, „me.‟
„Oh, well…maybe some other time.‟
„Ola, you don‟t think much about me,‟ she pointed out.

The house maid entered the kitchen. That ended any further intimate conversation. I left the kitchen for my room. Later, the house maid brought my meal. I took it, decided to relax for a while and then took my laptop to the reading room.

The room was next to my room and I usually went there to read and study. I was browsing the internet that evening when Joyce brought some books and came to join me.
It was in that same room I had taught her in the past, so there was nothing unusual about her coming. She pulled a chair close to me and sat down.

„How‟re you?‟ she asked.
I smiled briefly. „Fine.‟
She moved closer to have a peep at the computer screen. I could smell her skin. „What‟re you doing?‟
„Just browsing,‟ I replied.

She placed her hands on my lap.
„Joyce, I think we‟ve made a terrible mistake.‟
She frowned slightly. „What mistake?‟
„We shouldn‟t have done what we did the other time.‟

„What did we do?‟ She liked to be cheeky and she was at it again.
I chuckled. „That thing we did in the toilet.‟
A teasing smile took over her face.„ What did we do in the toilet?‟
