Sometimes is hard to face reality….
Should I hate him or hate myself???I knew I was worth more than he could offer but I stayed anywei.
Was it because of the sex or I was just scared to let go…
I am Emma, a project manager in Olokai real estate and I am stupid in love with Norman(An entrepreneur)…And this is our love story…
“Norman, I am not cheating on you. We are just friends…” I cried out.
“Friends???Why does he keep on texting you at 9pm??”
“Because he found out I was sick…”
“Okay so you go around publicizing your problems.”
“He is my friend..”
Get out of my house and go be with your lover…”
I slammed the door on my way out and he didn’t come after me.
It was 9pm and I was outside in the tormenting cold.. Smelling all fresh, clean and ready to get laid but as usual Norman is jealous again..
I take an uber back to my house and spend the night away watching grownish..
I kept looking at my phone hoping he would feel apologetic and call but nothing….
“Emma, you should just dump him. Aren’t you tired of him treating you like trash???”My best friend Lisa asked.
“He was just mad, that’s all…”I tried defending him…
“Boo it’s not like you were smashing the guy..You were just talking and you are not so well…”
“But I should only text Norman…”
“Bitch let’s see what Vicky thinks about this…”
Lisa loves to be dramatic…Norman was my man and it was my duty to make him happy..
There we were in a video call with Vicky…
“Don’t tell me Norman was been a brat again???”Vicky sneered and Lisa nodded.
“Maybe he was in a bad mood…” I tried defending him again…
“No booboo, dump that nigga before he sends you to depression. Has he called you???”Vicky asked and I shook my head in disapproval.
“You see, he is as selfish as he looks. There is alot of men out there who would want you Emma so don’t treat that fool like he is the last man in the planet…”Vicky advised and truth be told I didn’t care..
“But the sex is good…” Did I just say that???
“You need Jesus my girl..If that’s what keeping you to that man then I will cut his dick off…”Vicky barked..
“Preach sister but she ain’t gonna listen. She need to learn from her experience..”Lisa commented..
“I know you love me ladies but Norman also loves me..And….”
Before I could finish talking, Norman called.
“You see, he loves me…”I boasted..
“Hello baby,”I answered.
“I need you to cook the pilau and the kuku like I love it. My friends are coming over…”
“Be here in twenty minutes…”He hanged up..
“What did he say???”They both asked curiously…
“That he is sorry and wants to take me out later…” I faked a smile..
“But why are you sad??”Lisa asked.
“Because I don’t know what to wear…”
Lisa was so excited and helped me chose an outfit. Little did she know I was going to be the mpishi and not a date..
But it’s was evident he loved my food or else he wouldn’t let me cook for him. Maybe he has boasted to his friends about me and I don’t want him to get disappointed.
After all I have never met them and so maybe after Two years of dating he wants to make it official…
“Love, the food is ready. So when are your friends coming???”I asked setting the table..
“Like right now, take the Apron off you look weird…”
Just before I could comment, the door bell rung…
“They are here…”
Norman took a deep breath and opened the door…
They said their hellos and got in…
“So who is this???”One of the girls asked..
“She is Emma, please lets seat and eat.A m starving….”
I thought he would say my girlfriend but no he didn’t bother.
When I was about to sit beside him, he ordered me to get the drinks.
“This smells nice Emma…”The same girl complimented…
“Thank you and you are?????”I asked.
“I am Ariana, Norman’s best friend.” She beamed..
“So Emma you need to teach my girlfriend how to cook?????I only eat noddles when she is around.”One of the boys teased…
“She will definitely do that, she can never go against me or my friends….”Norman replied.
Wait, he didn’t ask for my opinion. What if I didn’t want to????
“Norman, I can’t teach her to cook….” I whispered and he squeezed my wrist,”Shut up”.
“So Norman if you don’t mind, I would want a girl like Emma…”Another guy stated.
“Ask Emma you two can talk about anything you want to…”Norman said in a rude tone. I wanted to be beside my man but he was was busy throwing me into somebody else’s arms..
They continued eating and I was standing beside Norman like a servant. I was invisible and all he did was talk to that Ariana girl…
He didn’t even mind if I was there…
After dinner, I went to the kitchen to wash dishes with a heavy heart and mind full of questions.
Were my friends right???But no, maybe he wanted to give attention to his friends.
“I missed you….”I felt him behind me. Trailing kisses down my collarbone, caressing me.
“Why did you not introduce me to your friends as your girlfriend???” I asked..
“Can we talk about that later???Right now all I want to do is feel myself inside you…”
He took the scouring pad from my hand and twisted me around so as i could face him…
“You know they already know about you. You are almost like my wife Emma..”He whispered cupping my face.
“Do you love me???”
“Yes I do….”He unzipped my dress that it fell on the floor.
He placed me on the counter and started kissing me…. One moment I was angry and the other I was moaning in pleasure…
The next day after the amazing night, he wasn’t picking my calls and all I received was blue ticks in WhatsApp…
I was devastated. Was he okay?????
Finally at Midnight he called…
“Take an uber and come right now. I want us to have a little fun like yesterday pumpkin…”
“I hate pumpkin so don’t call me that…”
“It’s healthy ama you want me to say Malenge???”
“I can’t come tomorrow I have a meeting at 8am…”
“Fine, I am coming in a few do don’t sleep…”
As usual after sex instead of us talking and cuddling he was busy on his phone…
“Norman, I have something that is bothering me…”
“You can tell Lisa about it….” He shrugged.
“But I want to tell you since you are here…”
“Emma, I am tired. We have just had two hours of pleasure and all you do is just moan and turn. I do all the work.”
“But I need a shoulder to lean on????” I sobbed..
“There you have a pillow so let me rest in peace…”He turned the other direction and slept..
“What he didn’t introduce you to his pals???”Lisa asked as we waited for Vicky at the airport.
“I feel like more of a sex toy to him…”
“Boo yes you are. You are an upgraded side chic…”Lisa replied…
When I was about to confess about me cooking for his friends, we spotted Vicky in a crowd..
“Vicky!!!”We ran towards her..
“How are my best friends doing??”
“One is a sex toy and the other is sex thirst…”Lisa commented.
“So Emma you still allowing this guy to treat you like trash???”Vicky asked..
“It’s not like he is raping me. I enjoy reaching cloud 9 and this bitch deserves good sex…”
“You need redemption girl…”Vicky rolled her eyes as we got into the car…
A week passed and Norman hadn’t called or even texted.. Everytime I tried to reach him, it was number busy..
Saturday being my day off, I decided to go look if he is okay.
You can’t believe the nerve of that man, him and Ariana were on the sofa playing video games and here I was worrying sick.
