In Love With A Prostitute - episode 3

Lucy’s eyes closed down as she felt the man’s
hand sliding into her shirt. Suddenly,she came
back to her senses, and slapped him, rushing
away from him.
“You slapped me for trying to help you?”Mr
Ekpor asked,his hand on the affected cheek. “I’m.. sorry sir but why are you doing this?
Please….I can’t do this with you….just give
me any amount you like…I will manage it
like that.”
Lucy pleaded as she felt hot tears pricking
her eyes. Mr Ekpor smiled.”I’m sorry but that’s not
possible.
You have to give something in return if you
want this job.

Get out of my office if you are not ready!” Mr
Ekpor shouted marching back to his seat. Lucy was heartbroken as she turned around
and left the office.
Once outside,she broke into a silent soon as
she walked out of the school compound.
She went to Martha’s shop and picked up her
baby, pretending that everything was inside. As she got home that evening,she went
straight to her room and cried.
She cried till she could not longer cry again.
Suddenly,she was angry. Very angry as she
dried up her tears, frowning deeply.
“God,what’s all this! Why is my life like this? Is this what you really want me to do?
To continue from where I stopped? Do you
really want me to give out my body again?
Since you don’t want me to become the good
girl u want you be,then no problem because I
can see that you have forsaken me! Why can’t you give me a job even after
becoming faithful to you!
Let’s put an end to this,by tommorow
morning…I’m going to give my body to that
man for the job…. for my daughter…I can’t
loose her to hunger!” Lucy said as tears ran through her face once more.
Having nothing on her,she decided to go into
the kitchen and take the baby food there
although she knew her mother had told her
not to touch anything in the house again.
Rachel was hungry even after she had breastfeeded her.
She brought out the baby food and milk and
set them on the dinning.
After mixing them together,she sat down
with the baby and began to feed her.
She had barely fed her when Patricia returned home.
When she entered,her eyes went straight to
them.
She walked to the dinning, staring down at
the food.
Lucy ignored her as she continued feeding her baby.
Patricia lifted the plate and threw the food on
the ground as everything spilled on the floor.
Lucy was alarmed as she bolted up on her
feet.
Her eyes went wide as she stared at the spilled food on the carpet, shocked.
“Mother!”
“So,you think I was joking about my decision
in this house?
Whose money was used in buying this baby
food! You shameless thing! You can’t join me and make money but you
can use the money and feed your precious
baby?”
Patricia shouted at her and Rachel’s cries
rented the whole house.
Lucy tried to fight back the tears that threatened to pour out but she just couldn’t
help it. They came down in a rush.
“Why are you being so wicked? This baby has
done nothing to you!” Lucy cried.
Patricia laughed.”By the time you are
ready,you will find that fish by your self. I can’t continue giving you fish my dear…
learn how to catch it by your self!” Patricia
snapped at her as she picked up the baby
food pack and the milk. She hissed once more
at her and left the room.
Lucy sat down heavily background on her chair in tears as she looked at her crying
baby.
She had no choice but to go back to Martha
who gave them something to eat.
Lucy returned home with her mind made up.
Tommorow….. she would go back to Mr Ekpor.
The next morning,she woke up and did not
bother about prayer.
What was she praying for? She got dressed
and prepare Rachel too,taking her to Martha
as usual. She walked to school,her heart beating fast
with disgust, hatred and frustration
She got to the school compound and started
walking to Mr Ekpor’s office.
She got to the door and breathed in.
She raised her hand to knock and brought it down again, fighting the urge to turn and run
away.
She decided not to knock… what was the use
of it? The principal already lost the respect
she was supposed to have for him.

Suddenly,she pushed the door open and entered.
She stopped,as she felt her heart beat stop
too. Her eyes widened at what she saw.
On top of Mr Ekpor on his seat,was an half
naked woman… probably a teacher too….
sucking his penis. “Oh my God!” Lucy shouted,her hands flying
up to cover her mouth.
Mr Ekpor jumped up as the teacher rushed off
him too, trying to cover her nakedness.
“Emm…oh..you…you..came… don’t…
really…mind.. come..have… have…”Mr Ekpor stammered, trying to knot back his loosened
tie.
Without any word,Lucy turned and ran out of
the office.
She felt cheap….so cheap!!..
“Lucy!! Lucy!! Come back, Please, Lucy…Oh goodness!!” Mr Ekpor screamed from his
office but Lucy did not turn… neither did she
even look back a bit.
She continued running, never going
back,tears flying freely from her face.
Just as she came out of the main road to link the round about which led to her house,a car
coming directly from her left ran into her and
knocked her… throwing her on the solid
ground with a great thud.
Her tears touched the ground before her
blood did. Lucy stared blankly at the sky….. asking God
why…asking him why he had forsaken her
as she felt herself slipping away…. slipping
out of her body… and slipping into
unconsciousness……
