After all the needed action with her, I laid
on top of her for a while and she still held
me. Only then did i realise that the power
was out and everywhere was hot and we
were both sweating. I got off her and she
just looked at me…..no smiles, no joking
words, nothing except a look of satisfaction
on her face. She slowly got up and cleaned
her body with my towel, found her blouse,
put it on and tied her wrapper as well. Then
went into the sitting room, took the items i
gave to her and left, not saying a word. I
stood there naked, watching her leave,
satisfied and confused.
The next couple of days was awkward for
me. I would leave in the morning and come
back in the evening when it was dark (talk
about a hen being pursued by the round).
The way she left that day kept me watchful.
One evening i was coming in when i met
her at the gate leaving, she smiled and
greeted me very well, i was relieved. As we
were chatting, making little jokes, she put
an arm on my hand in a familiar way.
Out of nowhere her last daughter (who
happens to be one of those that i like)
surfaced. We each took a step apart and
ended our conversation abruptly and
headed on our seperate ways. She greeted
me as i walked past her as i answered her
with a smile. That has never happened cos
i always greet them with little or no
expression, but never with a smile. She
seemed to almost pause but continued on
Maybe she saw us i thought, maybe she
knows what’s going on. Guilt washed it’s
way down my body as i went into my
house. I didn’t see her again until a couple
of days later, on a saturday afternoon when
i was driving out and she was leaving the
compound as well. As the security man was
opening the gate, she walked past me. I
drove out and stopped beside her, asked
her which way she was going and it
happened that i could drop her off along
the way so i invited her to join me. She did
and we drove in silence. I turned on the
radio and was laying my ‘don’t play your
rock and roll to me’ by smokie, listening to
it when she interrupted me. She asked
luntly, “why do you not like talking to
people?”. It took me unawares that she’ld
care to know but i replied and told her that i
do talk to people ofcourse, but i just mind
those i talk to. And she asked “like me?”.
I didn’t know what to say and i said the
what seemed like the smartest thing that
came to my mind “it’s not the way you see
it”. Not knowing what else to say i added
“i’m talking to you now”. She smiled. After
a while, she said “my mum seems to like
you. She keeps saying that you’re the best
tenant that she has”. She said that without
taking her eyes off me.
Without looking at her, i know she was
looking at me so i concentrated on my
driving. After a while i glanced her way and
our eyes met and i hurriedly looked away,
that seemed to satisfy her. Now i know that
she knows that something is up between
her mum and i, maybe she knows not what
it is but she definitely knows that
something is up. I tried to change the
subject by complaining about the traffic
building up, she obliged the conversation
and we started chatting about other things.
Soon i found myself really having a good
conversation with her. She’s smart and has
a nice laugh. She humours my jokes and
suddenly i was attracted to her. Soon i got
to where i’ld drop her off and i stopped, she
got out, thanked me and bid me farewell
with a “see you later”. As i pulled out of the
curb, i thought “you bet”. Two days passed
without us seeing each other. On the third
day, I came home early and met her at the
gate seeing off a friend of hers. We greeted
and i went in, few minutes later someone
knocked on my door… Guess who?
