Kate and Funke leaves the bedroom and joins others at the dining table where they are having breakfast of tea and bread with fried egg. Eating with her uncle and his wife discomfited Funke a lot.
Funke: “So, those man and his wife have seen my full nakedness”, she thought to herself.
After breakfast, her uncle leaves for his office and his wife goes to her shop somewhere within the vicinity. Funke and Kate goes back to the bedroom and take their bath. Then Kate takes her out for shopping. They take a cab and go into Abuja city. Funke notices that Abuja is indeed a very beautiful city as it was dark and she was too tired when she passed through it last night to notice its beauty. They get to a residential area and Kate pays the taxi man and he drives away.
Funke: “This doesn’t look like a shopping center, it looks more like a house where people live or is this the way Abuja malls are built?”
Kate: “Oh no, you are right. I am here to see a friend after which we will go for our shopping.”
They go into the compound and walk to the second flat. Kate knocks on the door and a man in his mid twenties opens. He hugs her and ushers them in. His friend who is about the same age is in the sitting room and after introductions, they settle down to drinking wine. After they stayed in the sitting room for about 15 minutes, Kate and her boyfriend excuses themselves and go into the bedroom.
Funke is alone in the sitting room with his friend and some minutes later, they hear Kate’s loud moaning and groaning from the bedroom. They were obviously having hot sex. The silence between the two strangers in the sitting room becomes unbearable and Richard shifts uncomfortably in his chair.
Richard: “Funke, you are a very beautiful girl, has anyone told you that before?”
Funke: “Yes, I hear that always, thank you.”
Richard: “I think I am in love with you and I want us to be more than friends. My father is a top government functionary whose identity I am sure Kate will reveal to you. If you agree to be my girl, I will take care of you and spoil you with whatever money can buy in this town.”
Before Funke can reply, he draws close to her and plants a kiss on her lips. The feeling of his lips on her sends hot feelings. She signals him to kiss her again and he did. He takes her lips into his and savours its taste while his hand made its way to her breast. He fondles it and squeezes her nipple hard as a soft moan escaped her lips. Her body is on fire with admiration for the stranger who is touching her this good. His other hand finds its way into her pants and he slids his finger into her causing her to desire him more. His finger keeps going in and out of her while his lips was sucking at her nipple like a baby whose mother has just returned from a distant market. She is hoping that the moment will last forever when her cousin comes out of the bedroom, interrupting them.
Kate: “I see that my cousin is getting along well with Richard. However, we have to go. You guys have to pause and continue some other time. We have a lot to do today.”
Funke: “Of course, we can leave”, she says, feeling embarrassed and cheap.
When they go out, Kate’s boyfriend drives them in his car to the shopping mall. When they get to the mall, he kisses Kate and drives away.
Kate: “Don’t tell me you wanted to sleep with that guy just like that. A guy that has never spent anything on you. That guy is the son of a past state governor and he has plenty money to throw around. You don’t give yourself to men like that. He needs to spend on you before you open your legs for him.”
Funke: “It’s unlike me, I just don’t know what came over me. I feel so ashamed and dirty right now.”
Kate: “There’s no reason for feeling ashamed or dirty. I gave Henry the hottest quickie of his life and he gave me 200,000 naira cash for this shopping. I met him few months ago and what he has spent on me is running into millions so I can strafe him anywhere. You need to be smart to make it in this town.”
They go into the boutique and Funke can’t help but admire the way Kate is picking only unique and expensive things with great quality. She buys clothes, under wears and shoes for herself and Funke. In less than one hour, Kate had spent almost half a million which is more than all the money Funke had ever spent in her entire life.
It is 7:00PM, by this time, Funke has given up on travelling to America. The flight is to take off in 3 hours time and the driver she forgot her bag in his car didn’t call and she has no means of contacting him.
Funke: “For this failed American trip, Abuja men will pay. I will use what I have to get what I need and want and I will soon be richer than I would have been if I travelled,” She said to herself. She is lying on the bed thinking of what to tell her parents when Kate walks in.
Kate: “Babe, get up and get dressed. We need to go clubbing, it will help your mood. I trust you say as you dey that bed, na America you dey dream of. “
In about an hour, they are all dressed and heads out to a car waiting outside for them.
Funke: “Kate, do you think it’s good for us to leave the house even when your parents are yet to return?”
Kate: “Why not? They are supposed to be back by now, I don’t know what’s holding them. My other siblings are in the house, abeg let’s go have fun. Who sitting at home all day epp?”
They get into the car after driving for about twenty minutes, they are stuck in Traffic. The traffic is heavy along Maraba-Karu axis, it always is.
Funke: “This place reminds me of Eko!” she says yawning.
Kate: “Hmmm, there‘s always traffic here. That’s why I hate this road.”
Funke: “This should be the Eko of Abuja!” they both giggle as she yawns again.
Kate:”Na wa oo. After the heavy meal?”
Funke: “It isn’t hunger joor. I’m feeling sleeping. After my torturous journey down to Abuja I need a month’s sleep!” Kate laughs.
Silence returns after few minutes, Kate breaks the silence,
Kate: “once we are close you need to remove what you are wearing and wear this,” she brings out the skimpy dresses, “Only shorts and body hugs are allowed in the club. You need to be provocatively dressed to attract big politicians. Of course we can’t wear this from the house. This is Alhaji’s driver but Alhaji is at the club waiting for us,” Kate smashes the gum in her mouth making deafening sound.
Funke is already asleep, Kate smiles at her and brings out her Techno A7 swipes her finger over it then starts chatting on PalmChat. Funke is fast asleep she even seems to be talking to herself but Kate nudges her and she readjusts but continues in her slumber. Funke is out of this world, having a nightmare, in the dream a man in a black robe appears with the face covered with a black hood to, he grabs her by her hand as she seems to be approaching the airport- it is the devil.
Devil: Funke, the daughter of Aderibigbe, where goeth thou? he asked with such a strong spirit, his eyes turning dark red
Funke: Who art thou?”she is shaken; paled eyes, dried skin like the crumbs of sun beaten bread as tries to run away.
Devil: I am the spirit of hindrance, the obstacle that prevent human beings from their success. Come down Funke, you cannot and will not climb this. ties her with a robe and begins to pull her closer.
She moves all the strength in her body to the legs, trying to stand very firm on the ground but the Devil doesn’t relent in his effort to pull, her feet draws scary marks on the ground during the tussle,
Funke: I…I am almost at the top of the mount of fulfilment. Therefore I have got no time for your conversation, let me be,” manages to say.
Devil: Have you forgotten that Nobody in your lineage has ever climb this mount of fulfilment, likewise you will not be the first. he cackles as he pulls her closer.
Funke with the little help of Bible Verses she learnt from her Father, Schools slowly screened the knowledge, searching for some Bible verses that would gain her access and conquer the devil. In no time, she spotted some bible verses and fires back at the devil with Power from the Words of God (Remember there’s always Power in your tongue.. so use it wisely). She drenched in sweat she yells,
Funke: You are blabbing. You can’t stop me. I am already at the top. Have you forgotten it is written in His word, Hosea 2 that “In this land, I will partake of the blessing, Heaven will acknowledge it”. It is also written in His words – Phil 4:13 “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me”. Do not also forget that the earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it; I shall receive blessing from the Lord for I seek His face, The God of Jacob. So therefore, Lift up your heads, you gates; be lifted up, you ancient doors, that the King of Glory may come in
Devil: Hmm… seems like you know some bible quotes abi? Ok oo.. tell me.. Who is this King of Glory?
Funke: The Strong and Mighty, The Lord Mighty in Battle. Lift up your heads, oh you gates, lift them up, you ancient doors, that the King of Glory may come in
The devil staggers but after a while recovers and starts pulling again,
Devil: Who is he, this King of Glory? in a mocking tone.
Funke: The Lord Almighty – He is the King of Glory! she wrestles the devil to the ground as she is about to punch him he disappears.
The devil let go of her, she wakes up sweating and frightened,
Funke: “where are we now?”
Katie: “Hold up o,my sister!”
Funke feels uneasy,
Funke: “I don..”
She is interrupted by her phone, it begins to ring – her uncle, Mr Ayodele calling. Her heart sinks.
Funke: “Uncle, good evening, sir.”
Mr Ayodele: “Funke, where are you? I went to the park in Zuba and I was able to trace the driver in whose car you forgot your bag. I have collected it from him. I just got home now and you are not here. Start coming back now, as you have less than two hours to catch your flight to America.”
Funke cannot believe her ears. She stands, transfixed and confused.
Question: Should she turn back or just go clubbing with her cousin? Will she still travel to America after all? What about Alhaji and the car and apartment he promised her? Should she forfeit all these goodies for America? Will her trip to America be worth it?
