Wine House, Ikoyi is one of my favorite places to chill, especially when I’ve had a hard day at work. They have the best jazz band, a wide variety of fine wine and a soothing atmosphere to drown all your worries.

I didn’t have to think too hard about where to take her to when Adesuwa called to say she needed company. I could have met her at her house as she requested, but I knew that hanging out somewhere like this would make her feel better.

Sexism From Two Leading Jazz Artists Draws Anger — And Presents An ...

I remember the day we met at the NYSC orientation camp in Taraba state about 10 years ago. I liked Adesuwa from the moment I set my eyes on her. There was something about her that I really couldn’t explain that instantly drew me to her. I could have asked her out at the time but I knew I wanted something long term and consistent. I didn’t want a camp relationship that would fizzle out easily. We became friends and were able to maintain that friendship over the years.

Our friendship meant a lot to me, we saw ourselves through different phases of our lives, having each others’ backs through our high and low moments in our various love relationships, our careers and socially. I had fallen in love with Adesuwa, but was unable to bring myself to express that love to her verbally, I was scared to ruin our friendship. As we transitioned into becoming friends with benefits, I secretly hoped the new status would in turn transition into a love affair, but she made it clear that she didn’t want anything serious and I had no choice but to agree with her.

The more we had sex, the deeper in love I got with Adesuwa. I had watched her evolve over the years and I saw her grow into the kind of woman I wanted to be with for the rest of my life. After her last relationship went awry, she made it clear she wasn’t ready for any more committed relationships and she just wanted to build her career and have fun.

I had been in a few relationships myself but I found no real connection with any of the women I was with. I believe this was to a large extent due to the fact that my heart was with Adesuwa. I also decided not to go into any relationship after the last one ended, until I could be free from the strong emotions I felt for her.

We sat together quietly, taking in the harmony of the jazz music, as we shared our second bottle of Escudo Rojo Red Wine. She looked absolutely breath taking with her pixie hair cut and very minimal make up, she was wearing a green dress that covered her up nicely but outlined her curves. Adesuwa was so unaware of her beauty and the effect she had on me.

She laid her head on my shoulder and all I wanted to do was pull her in really close and kiss her lips. But I also knew I wanted a lot more than that and in that moment, I made a decision. I would let her know how I really felt about her and how much I wanted to be with her for the rest of my life. If she still wouldn’t have me as her man, then I’d have to let our friendship go, while I found the strength to move on with my life.

Chris Arinze

I sat through the traffic impatiently, I couldn’t wait to be with Lola. We were spending the weekend together at The George hotel in Ikoyi. What started out as a casual fling 6 years ago had become something real that wasn’t looking to ease out anytime soon. In the past one year, I had done away with all my other side chics just to focus on her. She had too much energy and was way too much fun for me to even have time for any other flings.

My phone beeped and as I opened the message that came in, I felt myself grow hard as I stared at the picture Lola sent of herself in a sheer purple bra and high waist briefs that didn’t reveal too much but enough to keep me longing for everything that was underneath. Her hair was pulled back tightly and fell in a pony tail from the top of her head just like I liked it and she had on my favorite lipstick color.

I felt like I was about to explode and in that same moment, there was another beep. This time it was from Tonye, She wanted to know if I had landed safely in Portharcourt, I didn’t even remember I had lied to her I was travelling for a business meeting. I felt a fleeting wave of guilt, it was gone as soon as it came. I sent her a quick reply that I had landed safely and was trying to settle into the hotel and would call her before going to bed.

I was about to send a raunchy message to Lola when I heard another beep. This time it was an E-mail from work, it was a reminder for a meeting I had on Monday morning. I had totally forgotten about that and I needed to get some documents ready in time for the meeting. I called Adesuwa immediately not minding that it was late into the night. She didn’t answer until after the third ring and I could have sworn she had an attitude. I apologized for calling late and passed my message across to her.

Since I became Managing Director at SolarTech, I had to deal with being in contact with her constantly and every time we met, it was always awkward. I was able to keep it cool on the outside and maintain my stance as a boss but it made me quite uncomfortable most of the time. I had toyed with the idea of hitting up on her when I first resumed duty. I mean, compared to the last time I saw her, she looked so damn sexy. But I wasn’t ready for any drama and if there was anything I had learned over the years, it was that work place relationships always ended up in disaster. Besides, with the history we had, it would have been a bad idea altogether.

I didn’t know if she expected me to apologize to her or if I was supposed to feel guilty about anything, everything that happened was about 15 years ago and that’s a really long time. She’d be alright eventually, we all will be. The traffic was moving a lot faster and I sent a quick message to Lola.

“I can’t wait to take off every damn piece of fabric on you baby, touch yourself and keep it all wet for me, i’d be there in 10 minutes”

I focused my mind on all the pleasure I was about to experience and I felt my self grow hard all over again.
