“Where have you been to?” Bukky asked as she stepped into Kemi’s apartment. She dropped her hand bag on the chair and met Kemi’s gaze.
Stifling a yawn, Kemi gave her a soft smile. “Sad story.” Kemi said. She took a quick glance at the wall clock, crossing the small space to her closet kitchen. “Do you care for some tea?”
“Yea thanks.” Bukky crossed her long legs and rested her elbow on the arm of the chair.
Within minutes Kemi was back with two cup of tea and she handed one to her. Bukky took the tea and set it on the small table beside her. She leaned back in her chair looking up with a smile, waiting to hear Kemi’s story .
With a smile Kemi lifted the glass to her lips and took a sip from the from tea. She met her gaze, telling her all that happened to her. How she was able to survive through the help of a man who rushed her to hospital, and much effort of the doctor who tried all his best to make her live again. “Ore (Friend) na by God grace o.” She added.
Bukky narrowed her eyes. “You don’t mean it?” She sighed, pulling her gaze away from her. “Kpele (Sorry).” She held her glass up and took a sip.
“Thanks.” Kemi smiled, standing up from her chair. “Let me check what i’m cooking.”
“I have to be going.” Bukky pulled herself up. “I have an appointment with someone.” She lied. “I will check back on you later.”
“Have you seen Dele?” Bukky asked as they stepped out of Kemi’s apartment.
“No.” Kemi glanced at her. “I called him on phone last night. He said his coming to see me later in the day.”
Bukky opened the door of her car, dropping her hand bag on the passenger seat. “He had been worried.”
Kemi gave her weak smile. “That’s what he told me.” She laughed.
“Alright, see you later.” Bukky said with a soft smile as she got into the car.
“Okay.” Kemi pulled her hair away from her face, watching Bukky driving out of her compound.
Dele was ending his day exactly where he’d begun it. The moon, edging it way toward full, shone down from a brilliantly clear starlit sky, and flooding his home office with silvery light.
“Are you still busy?”
Dele looked up to see Kemi, standing in the door way, smiling at him. Her hair was brushed out and loose around her shoulders. He smiled back. “I’m done for the day.” He stood up and followed her into the living room.
“I finished reading your script a little while ago.” Kemi said as she settled down on the chair.
“How is it?”
“It’s good. Interesting.” She smiled and leaned back in her chair. “It will make a good movie.” She smiled softly. “Like the one that won you an award.
“I wouldn’t have made it this far without you.”
Kemi smiled. “Yes, you would. You accomplished whatever you set out to do, Dele. You always have.”
Dele accepted her praise with a smile. He stood and held her arms, pulling her up. “I really do missed you baby.”
“I missed you the more.”
“I thought i would see you again.” Dele smiled. “I never knew you had an accident.”
“Thank God i’m alive.” She smiled softly. “I am happy to be here with you.”
“I love you.” Dele brushed his lips across hers and she strained upward to meet him.
“I love you too.” Kemi words were little more then a sigh.
He pulled her into his arms and whispered a kiss across the sensitive flesh of her neck, just below her ear. Her breath caught. His lips meet hers, and for the briefest moment his kiss was tenuous, searching. Her hands rested on his chest and she could feel his hard muscles beneath his clothes. his kiss deepened. Her mouth opened and his breath mingled with hers.
At once all restraint shattered. She strained toward him. He pulled her tighter against him and they sank to their kneels. Need swelled within her. She fumbled at his clothes and he swiftly removed hers. Within moment their clothes were scattered about on the floor.
He wrapped his arms around her, tumbling them both to the floor. She pulled his lips to hers. He tasted of passion, and she wanted nothing much as she wanted him.
He poised between her legs. She stared up into his eyes, and pulled him lower. He slid into her with a slow ease, possessing her body.
