Hours later he offered to show me around the house. It was a cool evening. It was a nice tour, the house was really big, the staffs too has there own lodge. He showed me around the garden, he has two swimming pools. We returned into the house, and went into his bedroom. He sat on the couch and I sat next to him.
“What time do you have lectures tomorrow?”
“I suggest you go back today so you won’t miss your 8am lecture. I’ll call PA to arrange for your flight ticket.
“Thank you sir, you are the most considerate and selfless person I’ve ever met.
He transferred #500,000 into my account, I hugged him this, time. He hugged me back and kissed me on the forehead. He told me he’ll be traveling tomorrow morning and will be back in two weeks.
“See you soon my beautiful princess, have a safe trip” he said and pecked me on the cheeks.
The driver announced his set and followed him out.
I got back to the hostel in the evening, my room mate was not back. Prince called me, I told him I just got in. We talked for more than hour before he ended the call.
Happy came back in the morning while I was preparing for lectures.
We exchanged greetings. “How’s Admiral Alawod?” she aske.
“Why is he doing all this?”
“He said it just about sex.”
“He’s really working on you o, I think he doesn’t want to have you just for sex. He wants you to love him, he’s really love starved.”
Happy was right, prince wants to have my heart not only my body. But how can I fall in love with a man old enough to be my father?
I left the room and went for lectures.
Prince called everyday and we talked for two hours minimum everyday. During the period of two weeks he transferred close to #800,000 into my account. I spend wisely, I saved most of my money.
I had to learn from my Mum’s mistake. I only sent money home and I also transferred # 100k to Happy. We talked about so many things, we spoke freely to each other. He told things I never knew about navy, I almost wish I joined the navy. He said I can apply once graduate, he will get me in easily but I told him to get at least one of my siblings into the navy instead. And he promised to do so. At least I can secure the future of my siblings too. We discussed politics, his personal businesses, my academics and all. I always asked after his children too.
He said he miss me and I said I miss him too. I miss you” I don’t know where that words came from, but I’m sure is from mouth. I think I’m going to miss him. And my heart is gradually warming up to this wonderful and charming man. He’s really getting into me and I can feel it in just two weeks.
Two weeks later, he was back, he invited me over that weekend and I was in Abuja. He was so please to see me, so am I. He hugged me and planted a dry kiss on my lips. A current ran through my spine.
Take care and have a safe trip” he said smiling.
One of the staff took my hand bag to his room. I followed the guy, I needed to change to a comfy foot wear.
I joined him shortly, it was almost time for dinner.
“Let me get to the kitchen” I informed him.
“To do what?” just talk to the chef if you need anything.”
“I want to cook for you, don’t you get tired of the chefs food (he has two chefs)?
“You want to cook for me!”
Are you scared I’m not that bad.”
“No I was just surprised, that’s thoughtful of you.”
“Just tell me what you want, and I’ll prepare it, you know I can’t make different dishes like your chef.”
“I made to leave and he followed me. “You want to come into the kitchen, your men are around o, what will they say if they see you in the kitchen?”
I’ll just keep your company, he followed me, I can’t imagine what was going on in the mind of his staffs who saw us.
I made jollof spaghetti and garnished it with chopped beef, chicken, fish, carrot green peas. I served it with chilled ice tea. The chef offered to help me set the table but I declined.
“Wow, it taste great, you are a damn good cook.”
“I hope you’ve not committed yourself because I won’t mind eating your food whenever you are around.”
“That’s not a problem, I’ll gladly oblige you.
Later in the night I showered and changed again in the bathroom. I wore my robe and lay on the bed. He showered and joined me. He cuddled me as I lay in his arms
“Anike do you want to be with me or let me put it like this do you like me enough to be with me?”
“Prince….I like you already. It’s been a month now we knew each other and you are practically everything to me. A father, helper, friend, confidant and a companion. I now enjoy your company, you should know that I like you alread.”
“You don’t know how happy I am to hear those words from you” he said and pulled me closer. I felt so secured in his arms that I slept off.
The next day, Saturday morning. After breakfast, he took me out to catch fun. He promised to take me some resorts outside the country when I’m on holiday. He asked if I have an international passport and I told him, I have. My Dad got it for me before he died.
“That reminds me, I have a conference meeting in South Africa this week, but you can join me on Friday, then we’ll come back on Sunday. Please say yes.”
“Yes, I’ll come.”
“Good, I’ll arrange everything.”
We got back to the house, I just took fruit and went to bed.
“Are you sleeping already?” he asked when he entered the room.
“No I’m still awake” We gist about the places we went to earlier, he said some funny to me and I hit him playfully. We started rolling on top each other. He stopped when he was on top me. He looked me in the eyes, I saw desires in his eyes, I knew he wanted me. I closed my eyes and he kissed me with burning passion, his big hands were doing wonders on my body. He made to undress me and I held his hands.
He made to undress me and I held his hands.
“Prince wait! Please put off the light” I said and released his hands.
“Anike stop being shy around me” he whisper softly into my ear. “Or is it because of our age difference?”
I shook my head, I was nervous.
“Anike don’t tell me you’ve not done this before.”
I nodded sharply.
“You are a virgin?”
I nodded again.
“I thought you had a boyfriend?” I nodded.
“You didn’t have sex?” I nodded again.
“Oh… my… Gosh!” he exclaimed and sat up.
“Prince!” I found my voice. I tried to pull him towards me.
“Anike, I can’t take away your innocency, I have a daughter who’s your age. I can’t do it, at my age!”
“We don’t have an alternative here, just do it.”
“I can’t take your virginity. I can’t do this to you Anike.”
“Prince I’m ready?”
“Anike let’s sleep” he said and lay on his back.
I lay on my back too staring at the richly decorated pvc ceiling. I did a mental calculations in my mind.
“Many girls had given their virginity to guys who doesn’t worth it. Guys who doesn’t even love them or care about them. Guys who took them for granted, who never appreciate them. They gave it to them free. Prince deserves it not after everything he’s done for me.
I made up my mind to do the needful. I reached for the bedside lamp and turned it off. I climbed on him and kissed him.
“Prince, take advantage of me.”
I unloosed the sash of my robe and pulled it off, revealing my bare body.
I kissed him deeply this time and he responded.
“Are you sure about this? He asked.
“Prince, I’m sure, make me a woman.”
“Anike I did not even meet my own legally married wife virgin.”
“Let’s say fate gave you what you never had, so do it.”
If that’s what you want, let’s make you a woman.”
Before I knew it he was on top. I was nervous, my whole body was shaking.
Anike relax, if you don’t relax you’ll feel the pain more.”
He made sure I was well lubricated to reduce the friction.
“Please don’t hurt.”
“I promise it won’t hurt much, I’ll go in slowly.”
He made love to me and minutes later, my virginity was history. We had sex twice that night and the second time he made sure the light was on. I closed my eyes, I don’t want to see his face when his eyes are feasting on my body. I bled those two times, but the sex was not that painful as I envisaged.
The next morning, I woke up and saw a small table with food set before me.
“Breakfast in bed!”
“Good morning sunshine” he said smiling.
“Good morning and thanks for the treat.”
“How’s the pain?”
“A bit sore but I’m fine. I have to brush my teeth first” I said and went into the bathroom to brush.
I ate my breakfast while he was busy starring at me like I came from another planet.
Later that morning, we made love again in broad daylight. Though I was a bit shy but he said that it will fade away with time.
I set to leave in the afternoon and this time he accompanied me to the airport.
Ever since that night he took my virginity. Admiral Alawode worshiped the ground I walked on.
That week he bought me a brand new car, Honda civic 2016 model. It was delivered in front of my hostel. It was a big surprise for me, he didn’t inform me, he just called and told me to meet someone at the gate of my hostel. I saw Mr PA and the car. All the students in my hostel insisted I must celebrate it which I did. That week he sent # 1M into my account.
The following weekend, I joined him in South Africa, his PA showed me around, Prince was busy all through. He only joined me in his hotel room in the evening. We hang out once before we returned to Nigeria on Sunday.
Some weeks later, we started our 1st semester exams. I didn’t go to Abuja through out my exams period.
After my exams, I went to the departmental office with some of my course mates to collect our IT letter.
I rented a two bedroom flat for myself off campus. My things were much, there’s no where I could keep them till I come back from IT. Although I don’t plan to live in the hostel in 500l, so more reason why I got the place. I moved all my things from the hostel into my new apartment.
I told prince, I want to have my IT in Lagos, there I can get big pharmaceutical companies or food processing company where I could work or NAFDAC, I prefer the later, though they don’t pay much but I needed the experience. He promised to help me secure my IT placement.
I went to Abuja, I spent one week with him, before going back to Lagos. He pulled some strings for me and I was told to submit my IT letter in NAFDAC the following week, just for formalities sake.
I went home to my family members, my mom was glad I’ll be staying with them for good six month.
Although I lied to her, I was ask to resumed in two months time. I had to lie because I had plans with Prince who was on 8weeks sabbatical leave.
For good two months I was flying everywhere, from one country to another with Prince. We traveled to UK, US, Dubai, Tanzania, Dublin, France…it was a world tour and the experience was great. I shopped to the extent that I got tired of shopping.
I came back finally to Nigeria, Lagos to be precised for my IT. I wasn’t able to go to Abuja on weekends like I do in school. My Mummy never buy my excuses for traveling. I only visited twice and that was because I lied I had a wedding to attend.
Prince had to come to Lagos to block me. We do meet in a five star hotel in Lagos.
Six month into my affairs with Prince. I gave my mum a cheque of #5 million to get a shop and start her own business from my own personal savings. After a long sermon that Prince is just helping us, no string attached my mummy collected the check. She even made an offer to meet and thank him one on one, but he told her that wouldn’t be necessary. Prince also changed the document of the house we are staying in Lekki to my name. But I didn’t tell my mummy.
My account started buzzing and I decided it’s time to give back to the society. I started helping the less privileged which includes visiting orphanage homes. I donate also in churches.
Gradually I started falling for Admiral Gabriel Alawode.
One of the things I love about him is that despite is age, he’s very young at heart. He knows everything that’s happening in the social world. He knows the trending artists, music, actors. He’s a social media person, only that he doesn’t expose his private life on it. In fact I sometimes get fresh gist from here.
He only feigns rigid and over seriousness when he’s on uniform but once he’s out of the uniform, or behind closed door, he is down to earth.
He was a sweet man to be with and He was just so sweet to me that I couldn’t help falling in love with him.
There was a day we were having a phone conversation and at the end, I subconsciously said ‘I love you.’
“Anike did you just say you love me?” he sounded excited.
“Did I just say I love him?” I asked myself too.
“It’s OK, you don’t have to deny it.”
“I love you too my Princess” he said before disconnecting.
Ever since then, we always end our calls with ‘I love you’ and it never sounded awkward to me, rather it sounds like music in my ears.
* Your virginity is your pride & innocency. Make it an history only with your husband on or after your wedding night. Virginity is a covenant that must be entered into only with your husband.
But it’s so disappointing & painful that Anike let go of her virginity to reciprocate Admiral Alawode’s kindness and generosity towards her. This is disheartening!
