Ebuka sat on the soft sofa. His legs rested on the table, his eyes were glued to the television that had people dancing in it.Then he remembered something, went into his room, brought out a sheet of paper and started penning down what was needed in the house.
Hmmm… Palm oil eh, for soup. Sugar to add taste to my soup…hmmm.. I need ten bags of pure water o, I can’t start looking for where to fetch water like all those men from across the street. Since my lady has refused to call the man to repair the broken pipes. What else o” he kept biting the tip of his pen as he looked towards the ceiling.
“Ehen… I need five liters of honey too, he laughed. Its sweeter than sugar…what happens if I add both of them?”
He pens down other house hold items. Then his lady Lola walked in. She was becoming fatter than her door so the carpenter came around to widen the width of the door which was previously tiny. She looked stressed as she took slow steps towards Ebuka.
They hugged briefly
“Oh baby I missed you.” Ebuka had kissed her
“I’m hungry” she replied
“There is nothing in the house o. I had to pen down these things that we need. You could possibly drop by the market tomorrow to get them. For today, we could just go to the new homemade restaurant that’s just opened down the street.”
Lola looked at him shocked. She took the paper from him and scanned through it.
“Do you buy these things everyday?” Lola asked puzzled
“How do you mean?” Ebuka quzzied
“You got these products yesterday and a day before yesterday and you still wanna buy it today? Who eats these large quantities you buy everyday? Because since I married you, I only ate your poison (food) once” Lola had explained as calmly as she could.
“What are you driving at?”
“Where do you keep the money I give to you?” That’s offense one.
“Secondly, why did you have to wait for me to return to buy these things?”
“I don’t have any money on me. Moreover I dont wanna spoil my skin. You know how bad the sun is these days and I don’t have a car, you seized mine.”
“Do you think I pluck money from a tree? Do you think? You buy different creams to aid your bleaching and buy expensive wears with my money!” She had exclaimed
“Ahah… Is it not to look good for you?”
“In this buhari regime?” Lola asked rhestorically
“Common food you can’t cook. Look at you. Shame on you. Since you didn’t cook for me, let me feed from you” she smiled
“How do you mean?” Ebuka stepped away
“I said lie down” she barked pointing to the floor
“But I don’t have strength, I haven’t eaten” Ebuka complained
There was an hard slap on his face…
“Ah..my lady.. Don’t take it too serious na.. At least let’s get to the bed” he pleaded
“No, I want it here and now! She commanded
” remove your clothes….
Soon she was pressed on top of a slim Ebuka who looked like he was gonna die as he couldn’t feel his body anymore..
“Gosh! Lola grew fatter” he murmured…
