My Boss’ Wife: Episode 1

“Honey, the air conditioners aren’t responding?”

“Yes, you told me that some two hours ago.”

“I mean the whole house is stuffy. Can’t you get that?”

“That’s alright; I’m sending the company’s engineer to work on them immediately.”

“Please do. Thanks honey.”

“You’re welcome, my love.”

In less than thirty minutes time, I heard a Siena screeched to a stop in the compound as the gateman closed the gate. Hearing the sound of the doorbell, I rushed to open the door.

“Hello sir.” I said.

“Good day Madame, this is Mr. Kayode from Ray and Sons Ltd.”

“Oh, the engineer from my husband’s company?”

“Yes ma’am. I’m here to work on your fanning systems.”

“Air conditioners please.”

“Yes ma’am.” I was almost blushing when the lanky ebony-brown complexioned man addressed a young woman like me, ‘ma’am. He looked far older than me, if not older than even my husband.

“You’re going to work on the air conditioners of the whole house, beginning with the sitting room, then our bedroom and my husband’s study.”

“That’s ok ma’am.”

“If you can’t finish the remaining parts of the house today, you may have to come back another day.”

“No problem ma’am.” I felt like slapping him for calling me ‘ma’am’ like he was addressing his mother but I felt he was only being as polite as possible.

“When you’re done for today, I’ll be in the backyard if you need me.” I smiled.

“That’s fine ma’am.” Addressing me ‘ma’am’ again, I was seriously getting pissed off but I decided to ignore his good manners.

Three hours later, while I was knitting my son’s cardigan, Mr. Kayode came.

“I’ve finished my work ma’am.”

“You mean you are done? You mean the whole house or what?”

“Yes ma’am. I’ve been on this job since the last fifteen years. It was no big deal checking all the fanning systems in the house.”

“That’s incredible!”

“I appreciate you ma’am.”

“Can I check them? Just to make sure they’re working well so I don’t need to call you back here again.” I didn’t want him to think I didn’t trust the work is done.

“Why not?” He agreed. Besides, he had no choice, I was his boss’ wife.

Moving from one part of the room to the next, I felt the cooling capacities of the fanning systems, as he called them. They started working so perfectly like they were newly bought systems.

“Thank you so much sir.” I was being polite to him. Besides, he’d been addressing me as ‘ma’am’ since he arrived.

“I’m always at you and your husband’s beck and call ma’am.”

Leading him out of my husband’s study, my feet hit the table just before the door and I fell down. I couldn’t hold the pain as I yelled as if he was the one that pushed me to the ground.

“Stop yelling ma’am.” He said as he held me up. I suddenly felt a tingling sensation all over my body and didn’t know when I started kissing him. He was about to make a comment when I held his lips. From my husband’s study, we ended up in the bedroom. Though the man was gangling, he treated so nicely and I felt like clinging to him forever. When he was leaving, it pained me that I may never see him again.

“Thank you for coming Mr. Kayode.”

“The pleasure is all mine.” He didn’t add ‘ma’am’ this time around and that made me happy. We were now on the same page.

“Would you like to have lunch before you go?” I was trying as much as possible to keep this man here with me even for the few hours before my husband will be back from work.

“Maybe some other times dear, there are other official duties I have to attend to in the office.” His calling me dear made me even happier.

“That’s okay but you take care of yourself.”

“You too dear.” He winked at me.

As soon as he left, my husband called that he was coming home for lunch. It was unusual because he was such a workaholic who hardly spends time with me or our child.

“So to what do I owe this lunch?”

“I came actually to pick up an important file in preparation for my meeting with members of the company’s board of trustees this evening.”

“But when will all this stop?” I grumbled, hovering over him as he looked for the documents he came for.

“What? Where are you heading to?”

“Honey, it’s been like months since you had lunch with me na.”

“I see. What about all the money, properties and security I’ve provided for you and your son? Do you think if I spend my time at home all the time, you would be driving that car?”

“Is it security and wealth that make a home?” Haba, this man though that he could just leave a whole lot of me at home every morning before he left for work and that would somehow satisfy me? I am a woman, not a piece of metal. I feel, and I have cravings that I realized not only him could satisfy today.

“See, you are delaying me ooh. Just let me get what I came here for okay?” He kissed my cheeks as he grabbed a hold of the documents and then he left again. This has been the routine I have been trying to get used to ever since we had our first child.

  1. Hmmmm i honestly dont think she can just sleep with a guy she is just seeing for the first time tho….not so fast…it happens tho but this was a bit unrealistic even for a sinner like me sha..

    Thanks for posting

    1. Unrealistic? Nowadays, so many funny beautiful things happen ooo but this is a true tale with and admixture of some figments of my imagination, it’s a kind of faction.

      I really appreciate your stopping by @schatzilein.

      1. U r welcome

    2. @schatzilein Omg……”even for a sinner like you” LOL……you don see better temptation before?? as in the kind that makes you think with your feet…….. no mind me sha oooo………your coment was 3 much.

      1. @ufuomaotebele, that’s a great pokge at @schatzilein. Moreover, @schatzilein is maybe not up to a sinner like me lolz.

        A lot of thanks to you two @ufuomaotebele & @schatzilein for reading and commenting.

      2. Hahahaha @ufuomaotebele shey you dey find weting dey my mouth ni..hehehehe lipscemented and concrated …..

      3. @innoalifa you might just be right oh….your sin and my sin fit no be mate…..wink wink

        1. @schatzilein, ooh, my sins are telling me to shut up, let me keep my fingers crosses lolzzzzzzzzz.

  2. She just started kissing him and they ended up in the bedroom.
    That was fast, no form of physical attraction and the man did not even protest like he was ready.
    Desperate housewife things.

    1. Kin gane magana din ai, your comment is just on point; some housewives are just madly and badly desperate.

      Thanks a lot for reading and commenting @ameenaedrees.

  3. This couldn’t be real, if this was just the firat meeting btw d worker and his boss’s wife.

    1. Wow, what’s inciting the thought that this isn’t real? The first meeting between a housewife and her husband’s company engineer, let’s keep our fingers crossed and see where this episodic story all leads to.

      Thanks for reading and commenting @menoveg.

  4. O-Money (@Omoniyi-Adeshola)

    @innoalifa, this is the first prose-work of yours, i’ll be reading; and I’m pleasantly surprised. I was expecting a H.P. Lovecraft-y narration, but this is…different. You write well, keep doing it.

    1. I’m elated you read and liked the narrative, hoping to see you following the series. I really do appreciate you @Omoniyi-Adeshola.

  5. I was a man’s POV.

    1. The most important thing is that it captures a reality that is nearer or closer to the truth just as it is an approximation of the truth lolz.

      Thanks a million for reading and commenting @Nalongo.

  6. I think this woman wasn’t even thinkig about physically atraction ooh…..hell, the guy probably looked like her husband who is to blame for denying her of her womanly desires. she say a guy, she wanted him, she got him.

    Overall, she is not smart….kindof an unfaithful wife. how can she say she loves her husband if she just jumped on a common worker like that?? cheating is not acceptable….

    @innoalifa we are begging you to make the story more realistic…….pls do so sir. *smile*

    1. Sure, I’m paying heed to all you all are saying. I’m working on the second episode already and I’m trying to be as real and possible. Make sure you stay around to see realistic unfolding of the story.

      I owe you a debt of gratitude @ufuomaotebele :)

  7. I guess most think its unrealistic cos there was no description of an attraction from either of them. That said there could not have been an attraction but a seemingly innocent touch (helping her when she fell) can ignite an abandoned housewife.

    1. OMG, thanks for bailing me out avid keen reader @tamie. It is actually the case that it was when she fell down and he helped her up that the whole sensual event took place.

      Thanks a million for reading and commenting @tamie.

  8. To me it doesn’t sound unrealistic cos we do not know how starved this woman has been. Yea even though her thoughts were not spelt out… I am following this.

    1. @LONE, I truly appreciate your reading and commenting. To tell you something, I’ll try to be as realistic as possible. Cheers!

  9. its okay sha.. enjoyed it.. as for being realistic, it could be.. I mean, gabby solis can do dat.. buh dats by d way.. it was a nice read

    1. @neyosaxy, I’m really glad you enjoyed your reading ride. Kindly stay around to see how the story unfolds. A bunch of cheery thanks! :)

  10. @innoalifa I’m not fooled by your seeming ‘innocence’ sinner :) I suspect in the end, all this bedroom movement without speed-breakers will just be a figment of a wondering lonely housewife’s mind! *tongue out*.

    But I enjoyed the read, tho not the sharp break from respect (that is ‘ma’am’) to disrespect (‘my dear’)…probably the guy was eying the woman too. This film trick pass Jackie Chan own.

    1. Hahahahahahahaha, this film trick pass Jackie Chan abi? The truth is that some lonely housewives can do more than we can fathom. When lone and starved for so long, almost anything that can satisfy her is welcome. This is not the case, anyway, for all the womenfolk.

      Thanks for stopping by @imaniking.

  11. Thank you for acknowledging that not all women are like that…but men una get to wake up sha

    1. @imaniking, just like women, not all men are like that too. Both men and women have to wake up sha, to use your words.

  12. I enjoyed this. This story just goes to show the recklessness of humanity. The fact that she immediately pounces on him and he follows suit with no questions shows that too many times we are not mindful of the impact of our actions and we struggle with self-discipline. We all get desires/feelings but not all of them are in our best interests, even if they “feel” right.

    I believe in filtering our feelings, more specifically God-filtering our feelings. In any given situation, does the feeling I’m having push me towards God, compassion, and gratitude or does it push me towards abandonment, egotistical gratification and potential disaster? We all have to choose and then we all have to live with the outcomes of those choices. Good job @innoalifa!

    1. Your comment is quite profound such that it says in simple words the truth about the fact that we all have feelings but we have to do some sieving and filtering through self discipline. This, in fact, involves us making a fundamental choice to choose the good against the bad. Moreover, it is always good to be good. However, whatever we decide, we have the consequences to bear.

      Thanks a million for reading and commenting @AdaezeDiana.

  13. @innoalifa

    Bia…come stop falling my hand nah! Nice attempt but you screwed it all up with the wife sleeping with the AC man.

    Why?

    That part was damn unrealistic! From what you’ve given us about this woman, she couldn’t have just done that in the blink of an eye. In your narration, she registered no initial interest in the guy, was never presented as sex starved and besides, her rushing to ‘straff’ the guy happened too suddenly…then the guy becoming all so sudden familiar with her….

    I think you rushed this story. Everything was too hurried. You did not take your time to build your characters and let us get to know them well. Then her wanting the guy is something that should start as a little bit of hesitation relating with the guy….it should then begin to build over time with her attempting to flirt with the man. The guy too gave in all too easily; he should have been stunned and reluctant before giving in…infact, it all should have progressed within 3 to 4 installments.

    Then you didn’t end it in a way for us to pant for more, for us to crave to see the next part. With the spreading of the building interest in the AC man over 3 or 4 installments, we could have hung on cliffhangers at the endings making us wonder if she would get him and if he would give in…

    You also need to watch how you craft your dialogues; make them realistic as well and watch out for repetitions.

    lol….I don give you enuff ‘expo’…..anyway, keep writing, you can only get better!

    1. @Afronuts, a million thanks for reading and commenting. I’m trying my hand on this, hoping to get better and better. Your ‘expo’ is well received but do me a favour by following and constructively criticizing; it helps me a great deal. :)

    2. @Afronuts my gad!!!! You have to.be the blunted person I have never meant. Ur comments oo scares me and its not even my series.
      Thank God for people like you.

  14. Wow! Omo, na so e dey be? Haba… inno! inno!!! No make me spank you oo! Na one day ma’am dey turn dear? Hian!!!!

    *smiles*

    You try sha.

    1. @Tai, my mind on a fast lane, don’t mind just the words but also the message in between the lines.

      Thanks for reading and commenting, want to see more of you here. :)

  15. @Afronuts totally spoke my mind on this. It was rushed, too much, no suspense and at a point I didn’t know if the husband was at home or on the phone.
    But you can only get better, right?

    1. @Lordjosh, thanks for reading and commenting. I’m working to improve my writing. :)

  16. to read a prose written by you is surprising. thought you were all about the love and poems. nice one sir. as everybody don talk say it was too quick, make me sef no talk am too.
    nice to see you write something else. make i go second part see whether you don improve

    1. @oxymoron93, I’m really elated you find it surprising, hoping to see you following right to the end.

  17. A bit risque, but a nice story. Well, the storyline is well plotted

    1. for not only stopping by
      but reading and commenting
      leaving behind a remarkable feedback
      I say thanks a million @elovepoetry

      1. Welcome, always.

  18. Many have said it, Permit me to hammer on it.
    Like I’ve seen many texted here, the first thing I was off about in this story was what led to the sex. That was totally unrealistic, and I might have some hints.

    —)Your MORALS are preventing you from going deeply erotic while you wish to depict the idea of intercourse. As a writer, you need to sometimes break out of your homezone. I personally haven’t been able to

    —)Time is of the essence, and description feeds us. Give it time for their feelings to manifest, else the man would put up some resistance. Afterall, she is his Boss’ Wife.

    These are just my observations

    1. @Hextophar, your observations
      more than mere remarks
      are highly appreciated
      as they are used
      to better the
      story brick
      by brick

      Thanks a lot @Hextophar
      for not only stopping by
      but for dropping spice
      I’m using to cook
      the story’s rice
      step by
      step

  19. Kel (@KelWriter)

    It’s a pretty good start and something a lot of women can relate to… unfortunately I think. Not necessarily the part of cheating on their husband but the being neglected emotionally and physically by them. The plot moves at a pretty brisk pace. I’d have loved for the suspense between the woman and Mr. Kayode to be built a bit more but hey… let’s see what’s in store next!

    1. @KelWriter, for the encouraging words
      motivating my iiner world
      I say a million thanks
      hoping to be better
      as I write more
      some more
      & more

  20. @innoalifa, @afronuts has echoed my feelings on the main character and the engineer.

    There’s nothing wrong with having unusual scenes in a story, but since they are unusual, you need to show the reader why they are happening, even though they are unusual.

    If you had shown that the main character was sexually frustrated before her encounter, then the scene would have been more believable and less sudden.

    Good story/writing so far with just a few typos.

    1. @TolaO, thanks a million for sharing your thoughts about the story. It’s a beautiful thing having you around.

  21. Ho alert, not that I’m judging, a lady has needs :D

    1. Wow!!!!! That’s very very true,,, we all have needs.

      Thanks for stopping by @feiO :)

  22. @innoalifa registering my presence, queuing up behind the likes of @Afronuts and @TolaO …there’s not so much else to say. i believe the next episodes would be better crafted. going on to the next one.

    1. @dees-hive, you’re specially welcome on board. Feel free to make your literary observations, suggestions and recommendations. In fact, say whatever you think can help better creativity and writing.

      Thanks a million :)

  23. I’m finally here! Following……

    1. Welcome on board @AudreyTimms. Take your time and do enjoy the series :)

  24. O-Money (@Omoniyi-Adeshola)

    @innoalifa. I finally got on this. Lol. So its an intense start, proves Oscar Wildes quip about every human activity being about sex, except sex itself correct. Good start, boss.

    1. @Omoniyi-Adeshola, I can see you reading and commenting…a million thanks for joining us here :)

  25. A pretty good start @innoalifa, however, I ditto @Afrontus on the sex part being unrealistic. Abeg slow down and let your literary light shine. Awaiting the next part…

    1. @uzywhyte, where have you been all this while? I’m glad you’re back and reading through my story. Do enjoy the story and point out areas of strength and weaknesses.

      It’s really more than a great idea having you around :)
