My excitement knew no bounds as I prepared the food in expectation for Frank; I prepared his favorite meal. After preparing the meal i called him to come over so we celebrate my new car. He told me he had to be at home because the maid just called that there was an emergency at home and he needed to be there after work. I was so sad but I didn’t want to make him realize it so I just said ok.
I sat there quietly thinking of what to do with all the food when my phone rang it was my friend Desmond. Desmond was also my mate in school and we were in the same class, we even did our project work together with Justina. He asked if I was at home and I invited him over because I needed company to forget what was going on.
Desmond came with his friend Eugene whom I met for the first time, we exchanged pleasantries and I asked them to sit at the table to eat. I served them with the food and they kept talking about work and I actually was absent minded in the conversation because I wished it was Frank.
Eugene took my contact and he commended my culinary skills. Eugene is an engineer at Tema oil refinery, good sense of fashion, tall, dark and good looking as well.
In the morning I was about to leave for work when my phone rang, I picked and it was my new friend Eugene who offered to take me for lunch but I turned down with an excuse.
Frank also called and said we will meet after work to eat at our favorite restaurant in Town, I agreed and went out to pick a taxi when I recalled I had a car. I went back inside to pick my car keys to my Chevrolet and drove off with excitement to the office. As soon as I entered the office they all started talking about my car and giving me some fans about the new car.
I met Frank and we hugged so tightly It felt as if I hadn’t seen him for a year, we kissed and sat to take our dinner. We ate rice and we’re waiting for our dessert when Frank’s phone rang. After he spoke with the person he told me that the maid just called that she was very sick and needed help to go to the hospital because she was alone. According to Frank she sounded weak so he had to end the date and go attend to her. I tried to convince him I wanted to go with him but he insisted I go home and that he would call me.
I was so furious that this girl had come in between us once again. I needed to straighten things with her woman to woman so I decided to make sure I put her in a place. Frank paid the bill and rushed out of the restaurant.
I sat there thinking and wondering what to do next when Eugene called, we talked for some minutes about work and he asked to visit me. I refused and went home straight to bed and slept after taking some sedatives. I woke up in the morning feeling weak because of the medication so I took a heavy breakfast and went off to work without my car. I was sitting at my desk when Eugene entered, I checked the time and it was noon. He smiled and walked on to my manager’s office after a while he came out with him and they hugged as he left. I was a little confused so I went my manager and asked how she knew Eugene and she replied it was her brother , he came to ask about some personal issues. I went back to my desk and then decided to call Frank and check up on him, we talked and he said the girl was at the hospital yesterday but discharged by morning. I asked if we could meet but he told me he had to get some things done at home since the house help was sick. After close of work I packed my bag and headed for Frank’s house to check what was going on by myself. I knocked no one answered but the gate wasn’t locked so I entered. I saw Frank’s car parked outside and went to his room but he wasn’t there, I went to the outhouse where the maid slept and heard some funny sounds. I walked closer and it was getting louder;I kept wondering if it was a sound of pain or pleasure. I tried opening the door but it was locked so I knocked but no answer. I walked to the widow and I saw Frank Massaging Akua the house help; my heart missed a beat…….
