“Decent Assistants ”
Aunty Favour stood in the client’s lodge waiting for Mr George and Mr kola to walk in. She had sent a message to Mr George the day before and she had informed him about the update. She asked him to come with Mr Kola, another spiritually sensitive and decent teacher.
She was so excited to receive them, but her smile disappeared the moment she saw Peter with Mr George.
“John,John, how you dey? Welcome” Aunty Favour said as she feigned her smile. Captain was seated in the lodge, so she couldn’t loose her ‘guard’.
“Maale, I dey fine ooo, this place fine o” Mr George said acting his role perfectly.
Icing stared at them wondering who they were…
“Aunty lcing, na my children”
” Oh Wow! They are handsome ooo, especially this tall one” Icing said seductively
” Aunty Icing, these ones, dem be small pickin, dem no know anything” ( Aunty Icing, they are kids, they are not exposed) Aunty Favour quickly said so as to discourage Icing from getting interested in Mr George.
Peter quickly came to the rescue…
“Their mother… so this is the villa you are enjoying, you now left us at home to be drinking garri” Peter said.
“Na so” Aunty Favour replied. She couldn’t wait to be in a private place, so she could ask Mr George what Peter was doing there.
“Come, let’s go and see my madam “ Aunty Favour said…
As they disappeared into the corridor, she challenged Mr George
“Where is Mr kola, what is Peter doing here?” She said with a low tone
“Mr Kola refused to come and Peter overheard our conversation”
“Aunty Favour, cool down, this was my way before now, let me use the knowledge of my past to serve God in my present” Peter, fondly called Peteru said.
“My Good Lord…. Listen, right here your name is Jude as from now” Aunty Favour said. She wasn’t happy with the new development.
“Aunty Favour, ko fit me, Peteru is always a Peteru” ( Aunty Favour, the name doesn’t suit me, Peteru is Peteru anywhere anyday)
“Oh Lord help me “ Aunty Favour sighed…
The trio entered into the office.
“Oh my oh my! There is life here oo” Peter said
“Peter behave….” Aunty Favour said nudging his attention to Mrs Jaiyeola..
The moment he sighted Mrs Jaiyeola he exclaimed…
“Ha! Mama John! Mama Peter see skin made from Heaven…. O poor … Ha!” Peteru exclaimed
“Mummy! You are fine oo ..Good Afternoon Good Evening ma…” Peteru said seductively to Mrs Jaiyeola.
Mrs Jaiyeola smiled.
“Your boys?” She asked
“Yes ma .. I had my first child when I was thirteen, her name is Mercy, she is far away, After her God just open plenty tap of children for me” Aunty Favour said the truth in a coded way.
“Oh! Who is calmer…. Obviously I think it’s him” Mrs Jaiyeola said refering to Mr George.
Aunty Favour also saw lust in Mrs Jaiyeola’s eyes as she looked at Mr George.
“ Yes John is calmer and he sabi English” Aunty Favour replied
“Ok! he will work closely with me then, while the funny one should shuttle between the compound and the client’s lodge. Take them to Icing and she will show them around. You! John can come back here….”
Mrs Jaiyeola had said her last words seductively to Mr George. Aunty Favour saw that and Mr George couldn’t help but exchange looks with Aunty Favour.
” God help us!” Aunty Favour thought within herself. She couldn’t sacrifice Mr George’s salvation for this Mission. Icing and Mrs Jaiyeola seem to be interested in him.
