(Episode 2) The Devil you Know


After some minutes, he shook himself out of his reverie and looked her squarely in the eyes. Fear written all over his countenance.

Bambi: “What is it? Why are you looking that way?”

Maxwell: “I fear I am about to lose you” he said with his head in his hands.

Bambi: “Lose me to who and what? I am talking about us getting married but there you are lamenting over losing me? What are you trying to say? You haven’t given me a reply anyway or should I wait for some other time for it?” she folded her legs.



Maxwell: “I am saying this because there is no way we can get married now. It is not possible, you need to be reasonable na. What is all these about marriage when I can hardly afford two square meal a day? Aren’t you the one who feeds me most of the time?”



Bambi: “I don’t know why we have to argue over this. It’s I who feeds you most of the time then do you think I will stop doing that when we get married? I will work even harder while you continue searching for a job. Don’t you know waiting like this is just a waste of time? We are already in a relationship. You are the only one I have, the only one in my life so we are as good as married. Delaying it is only saying you aren’t sure about us. We can both work things out dear. I can continue being there for you in marriage like I am now. I just don’t want to lose you. I am afraid”

Maxwell: “I know you are dear but believe me, you are never going to lose me. I will forever be indebted to you. I will forever cherish you as my only woman. Just be a little more patient with me. Things will get better soon, I promise” he reached for her and drew her into his arms, deep in thought.

Bambi: “I hope so. But I will not give up in trying to make you see reasons. All we have to do is go to the marriage registry down the road with two or three witnesses and get us married. I don’t mind staying in this apartment with you, I don’t mind sharing only one meal with you per day, I don’t mind wearing only one clothe for a long time. All I want is to be with you, the only man I love”

Maxwell: “Hmmmmmmm… you deserve more than the best in this life my dear. How do you think I will feel seeing you go through hard times like that? What man will want the woman he loves to go through such times? I will wait until I can give you heaven on earth. Until I can pluck the moon out of its hiding place and give it to you. I will patiently wait till then so my dear, bear with me and let’s keep matching on the upward way together. I love you more than life itself, yes I do” he cupped her face in his hands, looking her directly in the eyes as he poured out his heart to her.

Jasmine strolled around the house naked, flaunting her beautiful skin. Her sagging breasts did not embarrass her anymore since he saw them before he decided to marry her. They had decided to spend their honeymoon in their apartment at Banana island since it was even more luxurious than most of the hotels around. Williams was a pencil artist who took to drawing when he was still in secondary school and through the help of Google and YouTube, he was able to master the art of drawing perfectly with pencil. He had drawn many notable artistes of both national and international acts and had met most of them who paid him for the portrait he had made of them. Without giving up, he had continued with what he loved doing making him one of the richest artists in Nigeria.

Williams: “Babe come back to bed with me now or what is all these shakara about? do you know how much I paid as your bride price?” he caressed his neat beards, smiling seductively at her and swallowing the lump which had gathered in his throat.

Jasmine: “Just imagine what this cheap guy is saying. You keep making reference to bride price as if it was up to a million dollars. Please I need to exercise my legs, they are all cramped up after all the thumping we did last night/this morning. You are a stallion man. I pray you don’t kill me one of these days” she perched on the edge of the other side of the Californian style bed, massaging her legs.

Williams: “Well I want to make as may offspring as possible this week”

She laughed out loud.

Jasmine: “This week? Look at how disillusioned he is. No wonder, when your biology teacher was teaching you reproduction in class back then, you must have been busy drawing his face rather than listening to him”

Williams: “Wow! You are brilliant! How did you know that?” he opened his eyes in amazement.

Jasmine: “Smh for you. Your case is definitely hopeless. And honey, there is something I need from you please” she started crawling closer to him on the bed.

Williams: “Has there ever been a time you didn’t need something from me? Let me hear it already and stop crawling like a Babylonian harlot like that. It doesn’t work on me” he folded his arms across his hairy chest.

Jasmine: “Is that so?” she placed her head on his chest when she got to him. “A friend of mine is homeless. She just got ejected from her apartment for her inability to pay the rent. Please can she stay here until she is able to get another apartment?”

Williams: “Oh no! I feel the devil’s hands is on this one. I shall not grant you this request honey. I am sorry” he shifted away from her, sat up and started walking towards the bathroom, she bolted after him.

Jasmine: “But she is my best friend. I cannot just leave her out to dry in the sun when I live in a mansion up here. if it were to be your friend, will you do a thing like that to him?”

Williams: “My no is no. how can you bring a friend into our matrimonial home when we are even still on our honeymoon? That is unreasonable lady. I can give you money to rent an apartment for her but she will not stay in this house even for a night”

Jasmine: “I knew it! I knew you don’t care about I and my people. All you care about is how to flaunt your money to and fro. I want her to stay here. if I decide to rent an apartment for her, it will be as if I am afraid she would snatch you from me or is that it? Are you afraid you might start liking her and thereby cheating on me with her? One thing you should know is she is not a woman like that. She is even a church girl who don’t attend parties or frolic with men like that. And I trust your love for me so what is the fear all about?”

Williams: “Whether you trust my love or not, all I know is I need privacy in this house. I don’t want a third party. Will you join me in the shower or you want to continue standing there?” he outstretched his arms invitingly to her but she hissed and walked out on him. He shook his head and turned on the water heater.

Jasmine: “Just imagine the way he is thwarting my plans. How can he refuse so blatantly like that? or have I married a bossy man ni. I definitely won’t be able to stand it. I really won’t have this happening to me. We are both equal in this home whether he is the one providing the money or not. I cannot have any man treating me like I don’t count. Ngozi Chimamanda Adichie is my role model and I must definitely stand up for my right in this home. What will I do o. I still have to actualize my plans in some ways” she sat on the sofa in the room, deep in thought.

Question: What plans is she talking about? Was Maxwell really unreasonable in his refusal to her request?
