A Story Written By…
Mummy, good afternoon.” I greeted his mother and she smiled. “Good afternoon my daughter. You know what children enjoy most.” She said. I looked at Kayode’s dark eyes and they reflected a man of strong passions. I still had feelings for him but I didn’t want to create a scene in front of our kids. As Chris and my son went watching the crocodiles, Chris’ grandma sat down sipping a drink. It was at that instant that Kayode brought his chair close to mine. He tried talking to me but I didn’t give him the chance. I stood up from there and went joining my son and his friend, leaving Kayode and his mother. “Mummy, look at this tilapia.” My son said. We watched as we admired the animal species until we saw some children playing and running up and down at one end of the garden. My son and Chris joined them and instead of going back to where I sat and where we dropped our things, I decided to go to the lions than go and meet Kayode. When my son and his friend finished playing and came around, we three walked to where Kayode and his mum sat. “Daddy, why are you looking at my friend’s mum like that?” Chris asked his father and I shivered with surprise. “Nothing son, I’m just wondering why she came with you two to play here.” Kayode responded with common sense, hiding the truth. “Or do you love her dad?” His son asked further. At that point, I was awestruck. “I love my mummy but you can love her too, Chris told me that you are a good daddy.” My son said. “Mummy, do you love him?” My son asked and I denied loving him, staring at him as tears rose in my eyes. “Chris, I can’t find one leg of my shoes.” My son said. “Odin, I think you left it in front of the lion’s cage.” My son and Chris walked to the lion’s cage to get one leg of his sandal. It was at that point in time that Kayode’s mother stared at us too and smiled, making a deep sigh. “Kayode, I love you.” I didn’t know how the words came out. After some seconds of silence, he responded: “I love you too dear.” As the words tumbled from his lips, he came closer. I couldn’t fight the desire that suddenly surged within me. I had tried too long and too hard to hold it in check but it overshadowed me; my feelings for him swept through me like a fire, searing her nerve endings, heating the surface of my skin, burning all the spots that ached for a man’s touched. Without saying a word, I kissed him and he embraced me so passionately. His mother’s gaze was on us. When Chris and my son returned, they saw me in his arms and they all smiled, hugging us two and smiling.
