Lust At First Sight

He held his lower lip with his teeth as his hand found rest on the door knob.

Turn it, now!

A part of him, in short order, assumed the role of an opposition—Efosa, please, walk away. The latter voice: gentle, but weak. He sighed, also realising that his teeth had left marks on his lip. Still his hand remained on the knob. He shut his eyes, pained, almost certain he would come back again, even if for the moment he yielded to the call of the more amiable voice. His thoughts, like a bat out of hell, took center stage, offering him images: those breasts! Images he beheld as he, without knocking, entered her room earlier that evening. He pushed aside a voice—the gentle one—as it tried to dull the images. He turned the knob, slowly, a bit undecided. He pushed the door open, closing it again, once he was fully in. The room was dark—as expected—but he found his way.

He lumbered to her bed.

Patience, you know, is not a virtue you can boast of. But for her, you have been patient—for twelve years!

He touched the bed. Then he felt the sheets, then her leg. Then her thighs. At that moment, more than ever, he wished he could stop: gain control of himself—his lust, his hands moving up her thighs—and walk away. He wished she did not remain still, and silent. Her silence urged him on. He edged closer: a new position, by her side.

“Jesus!” she screamed, and tried to struggle.

“Afoke! Afoke! Keep still.”


“Afoke! Its me.”


“It’s me.”


“I won’t hurt you. I . . . I promise.”

He tried to be gentle with his thrusts, but he stayed true to his resolve only for a moment.

“Don’t fight. It’s not what you think—please.”

He held onto her lithe frame as his thrusts became more forceful—that moment, if you know it, when a man has lost control of his thrusts. He wanted to pull back, to wet the sheets instead. But, he did not—could not! His lust kept him in place. Moreover, withdrawing, when it mattered, was not a method he was used to.

He pulled from her. He tried to wipe her tears, but she pushed him away.

“Afoke! I’m your daddy, I won’t lie to you. It’s not what you think!” He wasn’t entirely wrong in his claim—it was wrong, but clearly not incest.

“Leave me alone!”

No one was at home. No one would hear her, except the neighbours, if she screamed.

“Afoke, I—”

She screamed. “Go away. Go!”

“Ok. I’ll go.”

He was sure she would remain silent—about the act, forever! His wife, the one whom Afoke called mummy, rarely had time for the girl. He was the one she loved; the one who really cared for her. He was the one who chose her among the lot at the orphanage home twelve years ago, then she was just a little two year old.

Efosa loved Afoke, just like a father would love his own daughter. But, his personal demons were always at hand to remind him that it had been lust at first sight: it was lust, and an erect penis, that made him point at the little girl, twelve years ago.

    OMG! this is atrocious. height of incest. how I wish she could report to the orphanage authority.

    1. namdi (@namdi)


      I’ve heard, several times, that fathers sleep with their daughters. But I’m sure that the reported cases are nothing compared to the true situation.

      Thanks for the comment.

    Nice one Namdi…. You had me immersed in this. Nice one!!

    1. namdi (@namdi)


      Thanks. I appreciate the comment.

    This is just wrong… The man totally needs help…
    Every father that sleeps with his child should either be castrated or locked up in a nut house…

    1. namdi (@namdi)


      We live in an imperfect world . . . anything is possible . . . and a lot of people need help.

      Thanks, bro.

    May God help this world! You really nailed this one @namdi. It was beautifully written.

    1. namdi (@namdi)


      Thanks, bro. May God help us.

    THIS is atrocious… I shudder to think where the world is going to and how the human race could condone things like this. Very well written @namdi

    1. namdi (@namdi)


      The world, I’m sure, heads towards its destruction.

      Thanks for the comment.

  6. Namdi always nails it, and this one surely did not disappoint.
    Truth is, incest has been an age-long problem. We only get to know of it now because of social media and technology. It is purely atrocious, to borrow the words used by @shovey and @maggiesmart, and is totally immoral.
    I pray for the sanity of our fathers and families.

    1. namdi (@namdi)


      Thanks for the comment. Hmm, just wondering–can a mother do such to her son? Well, anything is possible.

  7. TheWhisperer (@Mayree)

    You needed to have seen my eyes open in bewilderment when i read the “daddy” part. How sad but true. Nicely captured.

    1. namdi (@namdi)


      Yeah, I’m sure no one would have imagined that the man was actually her ‘daddy’.

      Thanks for the comment.

  8. mendel martha (@ihenyengladysusile)

    This is ridiculous how could he do such a thing, one just needs to be careful this days.
    Good piece

    1. namdi (@namdi)


      Ridiculous, yeah!

      Thanks for the comment.

    Let me start by saying that if it was possible to kill a fictional character, this man would have been a ‘goner’. That aside, you did a good job with this piece. Well done.

    1. namdi (@namdi)


      Lol. Efosa is lucky that he’s just a fictional character–if not, hmmm!

      Thanks for the comment, and compliment.

  10. It’s hard to believe it’s fiction you wrote because it’s real in every sense. There are no longer boundaries on sex, how can a father lust after his own child?

    A man’s demon can only push him to an extent but the rest….it’s all on the man

  11. namdi (@namdi)


    Its fiction oh! I’ve never met any ‘Efosa’ before. True, sex–hmm, no boundaries anymore oh! Also true: one’s demons can only push one to an extent.

    Thanks for the comment.

  12. Good writing. Typical story though.

  13. namdi (@namdi)

    1. namdi (@namdi)


      I guess such trauma is best imagined than experienced.

      Thanks for the comment.

    sexual attraction to a toddler? (a la 12 years ago pointing) sad but real

  17. namdi (@namdi)


    I’m sure you’ll be amazed at the varieties people are attracted to–sad.

    Thanks for the comment.

    My heart literally breaks, what would make a man, virile and versed for he has obviously has intercourse with his wife, he knows what sex feels like, what did he see in a 2year old to excite him,
    Well, as they say, the heart of man is desperately evil
    Because,well ….
    Namdi, Heard abt you from a friends and I can say I’m not disappointed
    All the best !

    Hi, thanks for the comment. And welcome to naijastories. I guess you’ll be surprised seeing a different name. Yeah! it’s still @namdi. I’ve been unable to access to main account for about two weeks. I’m still asking @ogaoga to help me out: admin, I’ve sent three emails through my email, and one private message with this temporary account I created.

    @Deexxo, when I regain access to my account I’d like to find out which of your friends mentioned me to you.

  20. Adanna Otuechere (@Ada123)

    @namdi I like the way you began the story with much suspense,uncertainty and anticipation. Excellent work.
