Campus Story – Previous Episode – Episode 12
Immediately after madam’s departure, I noticed she didn’t go with Gideon also, I sensed a trouble ahead. I believed madam must have informed Mabel to watch over Janet and me, I believed she must have left Gideon at home also for the same purpose. While I was in the living room, trying to round up the lesson With Janet, Mabel walked in from her room and went to the dining to pack the plates.
I looked at her and she looked back at me with a straight face. ” I know say I don enter am this nite”. I began to reason how the night will look like, whom I should sneak out to meet”.
Mabel unhappiness must have been caused by Janet’s presence in the house. She walked away into the kitchen still looking at me. Janet caught me staring at Mabel. “I have been suspecting you and our maid of recent. That is why I stayed back this night. I know it’s dangerous leaving both of you alone in this house” said Janet.
“Chaiii, I don enter am”. Then I acted a stubborn boy, “me??, to your maid?! What is the meaning of this rubbish?, abeg leave me alone”. I stood up, left Janet on the sofa and went into my room and locked from inside. Janet called my phone several times which I didn’t pick up. She came to knock but I didn’t open. Then a text came in from Janet ” I’m so sorry love, I never mean to upset you, I was only kidding. I love you”. I saw the text and smiled.
At 11:23pm. Mabel called me, she said I should come over or she should sneak into my room, I reminded her that Janet had been suspecting us and catch us. I asked her what Madam discussed with her before going to church but she refused to talk. She said
she will call me back at 12:30. I dropped my phone and tried to sleep, a WhatsApp message came in from Janet and we started a conversation.
JANET: dear, pls I need to be in ur arms right now, I am cold and bored.
ME: so sorry dear, same thing here.
JANET: should I come over?, or will you come?
ME: Mabel is in the house with us, I don’t think its safe.
JANET: what do you mean?
ME: didn’t you noticed that your mum went inside her room the other time?
JANET: and what does it implies?
ME: it implied that mabel is told to watch our movements, and I don’t want to get into trouble.
JANET: she can’t do anything, she is just a maid. If she dares to report us to mum, I will implicate her and she will be sent packing.
ME: *confused on what to type next*, ok, open your door, I will come to your room soon, I want to tidy up somethings. I was confused on what to do next. What if Mabel or gideon see us?, what if she decided to expose everything as she threatened earlier?,. While I was thinking, Mabel called again to remind me that she will call me at midnite. This time, I was totally confused. I switched off my phone and slept off.
I woke up around 7am, I switched on my phone, I got several whatsapp messages from
janet and “call me sms” from Mabel. I knew I will have to face interrogation today. I was in the room and I heard madam’s voice downstairs. I also heard the sound of a sweeping broom at the back of the compound. I was scared to come out of the room because I don’t know the excuse I will give janet, after a while, I overheard madam telling Mabel to buy fruits while coming from the market, then I remembered today is another market day.
“Waoh, what do I do?”. I sent a text to Mabel that I will be at home by 10am and she should see me there.. I came down stairs and met madam in the living room,
ME: good morning ma
MADAM: good morning , how was your night?
ME: fine ma. How was the vigil?
MADAM: it was ok,
ME: ok ma. Pls ma, I wanted to check on a friend in town at 9am so I said I should inform you
MADAM: **laughed**, you are funny, you are free to go to anywhere at anytime provided it is not affecting my children lesson sessions. I’m not imprisoning you here, you are only here
to work so you should have your freedom**she patted me on the back**.
ME: ok ma. Where is janet?
MADAM: she is still in her room.
I went back upstairs to my room. I sent texts to janet, apologising about my inability to come last night. I told her I was scared of been caught by gideon and Mabel but janet refused to reply. I then recorded a 3minutes voice note, telling her how much I missed
and loved her. Then she replied with a voicenote ” I loved you too, I couldn’t sleep well last nite because I missed you”. Chaiii, I don hook ooo!!!,
Its 9am, I had my bath, dressed up and went to my house, on getting home, I was in my bad neighbour’s room having a gist and chats when my phone rang at 9:49am. I checked the screen and it was Mabel. I picked the call the call and she said she was at my door entrance. I dashed out of my neighbour’s room and went to meet Mabel. We entered my room and started conversations.
Mabel: what happened last night, why did you switched off your phone?
ME: I wanted to sleep for a while before the night call, so I ended up sleeping off till morning.
Mabel: hmmmmm, abi its because of aunty janet?
ME: *laughs** janet kee? Rara ooo, I just slept off, that’s all.
Mabel: I was awake all through the night sha, waiting for the time I will hear door movements but I didn’t hear any.
ME: door movements?, how?
Mabel: that was what madam told me to watch out for. In fact, I slept at the store room upstairs last night.
ME: **chaiii** see me see monitoring ooooo”. So if I went to her room, what would have happened?
Mabel: I will tell madam ni
ME: *i don enter am*have you believed me now that I’m notdating janet?
Mabel: not yet. “Smiled”.
ME: now that the white house is secured, how do we get to see?
Mabel: let’s continue with our old method of market days
ME: **chaiii, this babe get sense**
We had a sweet “woman riding on top” s*x after a sweet romance and she left for market. After her departure, I picked my phone to chat with janet
ME: jane baby, how are you?
JANET: I’m not fine
ME: what happened?,
JANET: you aren’t free and closed to me like before.
ME: but baby, try to understand me. As long as Mabel is always at home, I have to behave myself. You can’t underrate her, she mightbe dangerous.
JANET: ok, I have an alternative
ME: what is that?
JANET: maybe I will be sending her out on an errand whenever I wanted you, or we will be going to your house occasionally.
ME: “chaiiii, this girls no go kill me”. Ok, we will talk better when I’m back
JANET: back from where?, so you are not in this compound?, where are you?
ME: oooh sorry I didn’t tell you, I went out to see a friend. You were indoor at that time.
JANET: ok sir. Don’t stay long outside oooo.
ME: *laughs** ok dear.
For the next 6 weeks, things worked out fine, Mabel and I would hook up at my house on market days, it was always a moment of tutorials and sweet s*x. Meanwhile, janet will send Mabel on an errand For unnecessary things whenever she needs a “quickee” and we will opt for my house on none market days whenever we fill like having a nice romantic outing. I never stopped getting excited whenever I saw madam on her night gowns or short skirts,
whenever we are sitting together at dinning, she likes patting me on my laps.
During 2nd week of april, about 3 weeks to jamb, something tragedic happened. We were at home on one saturday evenin when a woman came into the house, I guess she was the woman who brought Mabel from ilorin. I was having a session with janet on the dining, Mabel was in the kitchen while madam and the woman was discussing in the living room. Madam shouted “yeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!” We came closer to them, madam said “Mabel mother is dead”. I felt so sad, my eyes were soaked. Janet was crying. Gideon’s face was dull. Mabel was sent for. The news was broke to her, she was crying helplessly like a poor baby. I could felt her pains. She had always told me how she loved her mummy so much. We consoled her and cheered her up. Due to islamic tradition, the mother would be buried on sunday morning the next day and mabel must travel that saturday. Janet and madam followed her to her room to pick few things. Madam drove us to ilorin pack. Mabel was still crying. We all encouraged her.
She promised to be back in 2 weeks time. We watched her entering the bus with the woman. I couldn’t hold my tears. I felt so sorry for her. I knew I will definitely miss her for that period. As we were heading back towards home, JANET was smiling in silence. I was like “what the hell is wrong with
