Lara sprayed some perfume on her skippy
nightie, she walked to her mirror again.
“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 room.
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
“What do you want?” he growled
Lara’s lips moved but no words came
“D--n 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
“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
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 am.
She stretched lazily on her bed. She had her
plans on mind, no more cooking till further
“Lara!” Tony banged her door.
Devil! She hissed pulling the blanket over her
“Lara!!” Tony banged 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
“Lara!” he shook her roughly.
“Uhm? Uhm? What is it?” she muttered
pretending to be just waking up.
He pointed at the wall clock. Her eyes followed
his hand, then back at his face.
“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 bed.
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
“Hehehehe! Wonder shall never end!” she
clapped her hands eyeing him derisively.
“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 home…”
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 for her.
“my oga, good moni!” Adamu- the gateman
greeted him as he drove out.
He beckoned to Adamu, who walked up to him
“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 drove away.
