Episode 20.

SOPHIA

Tuesday evening, I am on a taxi heading home. Bishop and I landed several minutes ago. His wife surprisingly came to pick him up instead of the driver and I was forced to book a cab to drive me home. I didn’t like the way that woman looked at me and when I greeted her, her response was cold and rude. She didn’t even try to hide her dislike of me.

I could have at least pretended to be nice. She couldn’t. And to think that she will spend the night with Bishop just makes me so mad. There’s actually nothing special about her, I think I am even more beautiful, she just has money.
“We are here,” the middle-aged taxi driver says when he pulls up in front of my house.
“Okay,” I open my purse and pull out four hundred kwacha notes then I hand him the money. I step out and he helps me with my bags up to the door.
“Thank you.”
Opening the door, I carry my bags inside and head straight to the bedroom where Zyair is ironing some clothes.
“Babe!” He exclaims. I talked to him on the phone yesterday and told him I would be coming home but I didn’t tell him what time.
“Hey you,” I say, putting my stuff on the bed and kicking off my shoes before I sit down.
“You should have told me you had landed.”

“So that you would have come to pick me up at the airport with your car?” I sarcastically say.
“You know I don’t have a car.”
“Exactly why I didn’t tell you when I landed.”
“I could have sent a taxi.”
“With that money?”
“Anyway, welcome home. How was the trip?”
“It was amazing.”
“I see you bought a lot of stuff.”
“I did.”
“A new phone too?” He stares at the iPhone in my hand. “Isn’t that too expensive for you to buy?”
“I was saving up.”
“I see. I bought you a phone too for your birthday,” he points at the box on the table.

It should be a Tecno phone or something, back in the days I would have been excited with such a gift but not anymore. What am I supposed to do with an Android phone when I have an iPhone? I don’t think I even remember how to operate that kind of phone anymore.
“I said I got you a phone too” he says.
I force myself to smile,” thank you baby. That’s so thoughtful of you.”
“Well I ordered a cake for you as well but I was waiting for you to get back so I could get it and perhaps we could re-celebrate your birthday.”
“When?” I ask without looking up, I am responding to some messages from Sanna.
“How about dinner tomorrow?”
“Ya that sounds okay.”
“So I applied at Breath of Heaven Children’s Ministries last week and I have been called for interviews, I will be going tomorrow morning.”
“Oh wow. Congratulations.”
“I am just hoping I get the job.”
“I pray you do get that job.”
“Thank you. Going to work tomorrow?”
“Yes, I have missed a lot of days already.”
“But why did you extend your stay there?”
“Bishop’s meetings were extended and I couldn’t come back. You know I went there for work.”
“I see.”
“I think I am gonna take a bath.”
“Okay let me wind up here and set the table.”
” I honestly don’t feel hungry so don’t include me in the food.”
“Okay.”

I get undressed and step into the shower. I do miss Bishop a lot and I sort of feel lonely without him. I don’t know why but I am beginning to feel like I can’t do without that man especially after we had sex. I wish we didn’t come back.
When I step out of the bathroom a few minutes later, Zyair is not in the bedroom so I quickly grab my phone head back into the bathroom and dial Bishop’s line.
“Hello,” he says, answering almost immediately.
“Hey, I hope I am not disturbing you.”
“No you are not, I was just about to call you when you called.”
“Really?”
“Yes. Are you home already?”
“I am home. I just came out of the shower.”
“I wish I was with you in the bathroom.”
“Same here. I miss you.”
“Do you mind sending me some photos of you?”
“What kind?”
“Where you are undressed. I just want to see how you are looking.”
“Okay, give me a sec.”
I hang up, drop the towel and quickly get a few nude photos of myself then I send them to him and delete them from my phone.
He calls me back a minute later, “I love them. You will be on my mind as I sleep tonight.”
I smile,” Okay. I have to go now. I think Zyair just walked into the bedroom.”
“Okay see you tomorrow.”
“See you.”
I end the call and walk back into the bedroom.
“Who were you talking to?”
“Sanna.”
“In the bathroom?”

“Is there any law that prohibits people from taking calls in the bathroom?”
“No.”
“Great.”
“I will come to church with you on Sunday,” he says and I shoot him a quizzical look.
“My church? Why?”
“I don’t know, perhaps I am just curious.”
“About what?”
He shrugs, “I don’t know.”
“Is there something you are not telling me?”
“No, I thought you would be happy about this?”
“I don’t know how to feel about it?”
“Well it’s just one service.”
“Okay.”
Drying my body, I apply lotion, put on my pajamas, and climb into bed.
Zyair joins me a few minutes later. He pulls me close to him and starts kissing me.
“I am really tired I don’t think I have the strength to get into this now.”
“I miss you, it’s been days and….”
“I am sure this can wait until tomorrow.”
“Babe.”
“I am serious.”
“Okay.”
“Goodnight.”
“Goodnight.”
To Be Continued… . . . .

Antony marked his Manchester United debut with a well-taken goal against Arsenal on Sunday, becoming the first Brazilian to score on his Premier League bow for the club. The winger, who arrived from Ajax in an £81.3million (€95m) deal, latched onto Marcus Rashford’s well-timed pass to slot home after 35 minutes, handing the Red Devils a 1-0 lead at Old Trafford. Antony became the ninth Brazilian player to appear for United in the Premier League. At the age of 22 years and 192 days, Antony’s goal made him the youngest Brazilian to score on his Premier League debut for any team. Casemiro became the eighth Brazilian to appear for United in the competition last month after joining from Real Madrid, but the midfielder is still awaiting his first start for the club. Antony was United’s most costly addition in a busy transfer window, having joined the likes of Christian Eriksen, Tyrell Malacia, Lisandro Martinez, Casemiro and Martin Dubravka in making the switch to Old Trafford.
