Williams smiled with gratitude as Barbra helped him with his suit jacket- she was bent on dressing him up that morning.

“You’re making me look like a helpless little boy.” he chuckled.

“Well…” Barbra shrugged knotting his tie, bringing up the memories of their courting days.

“You don’t look like you’re going out today?” he observed.

“I told you, My sister is coming over to see me.”

“Oh! My bad!” he scratched his head.

“Bye for now..” he kissed her picking his briefcase.

“Errrm…” Barbra hesitated.

“Yes?” Williams stoped moving.
“You want anything?” he teased.

Barbra stared at her fingers, she wasn’t sure of what to say.

“talk to your husband..” Williams sat beside her.

“I want to ask you for a favour..” she began.

“favour? Anything for you! Just name it.” he encouraged.

“I..want..errm…I want you apologise to…errm….Joyce.” she stammered.

“I beg you pardon?”

“Look..the way you talked to her the other night wasn’t good at all…atleast not for a pregnant woman.” she squeezed his hands.

“I can’t…”

“Yes you can!” she cut in.
“please for the sake of the baby she’s carrying, you can’t continue treating her like a thrash can…please.”

“For my sake please” she added quickly.

Williams exhaled sharply- what on earth was his wife asking him to do? Has she suddenly forgotten what Joyce’ mission was? Women are so impossible- he thought.

“I didn’t really mean to upset you, I was just trying to make things right.” Barbra spoke sensing her husband’s state of mind.

“Alright..let me go to work. I’ll see what I can do about it.” Williams rose to his feet.

“You’re not talking to her now? As in apologise this morning?” Barbra asked looking disappointed.

“Iya Kemi!” Williams almost yelled. He always called her that name whenever she’s becoming too difficult to control.

“I’m sorry..” Barbra shrugged.

“okay, is it not apology? Ehn? Why not if it’ll make you happy.”

“Really?” Barbra hugged him.

“Yea, bye.” Williams kissed her goodbye.

“so you’ve come to throw my things out?” Joyce asked her hands akimbo as Williams shut the door behind him.

“No…not at all, just came to I’m sorry.” Williams replied trying his best not to stare at her exposed thighs.


“For the way I talked to you few nights ago.” Williams replied.

“You just remembered to apologise now? Or you suddenly got tired of your wife?” she asked half-suprised.

“What I did was wrong, I’m sorry.” williams replied looking at everything except her.

“Apology accepted, on one condition.”


“You’re gonna make love to me here and now!” Joyce snapped her fingers.

“What? Even with the pregnancy?” Williams asked bewildered

“What with that? I still have feelings.” she rolled her eyes seductively.

“I cheated on my wife once, and I’m not willing to do that again! Okay?” Williams glared at her.

“Okay…lets see how it goes.” Joyce leaned on the door,
“Williams! Its either you do it now, or you’ll have to scream for your wife to come open the door for you.”

Williams swallowed, what kind of hot trouble did he fix himself into? His palms became sweaty as Joyce pulled off her dress exposing her cleavage. She walked towards him..

“Back off Joyce! Don’t move an inch close to me! I’d be forced to push you!” He thundered.

“Lets see how you’d manage.” Joyce laughed grabbing his jacket.

“Stop this! Devil!” Williams struggled as Joyce professionally covered him with her lips.

He was about giving in when a sharp tap on the door tore them apart.

The door creaked open and two pair of eyes stared at them in shock.

Williams quickly adjusted his tie, straightened his rumpled suit, rubbed his swollen lips, without a second glance at Joyce who was still struggling to cover her unclad self; he walked past the intruders like nothing happened.
