“let’s go to my place”David said casually as we drove from the hospital.
This guy is damn crazy! He thinks I’m that cheap.
“No, take me and my daughter back to my place!”I replied.
He didn’t miss the heat in my voice, he shook his head gently.
“No harm intended, it’s just that I feel its more safe to be at my place, since Akpan and the rest are not yet tried in court.”he tried to explain. He’s trying his best to sound so nice.
“No!”was my firm reply.
“Your place? You mean your house?”Eniola chirped. He nodded.
“Ehn now! Let us go na! Then I’l know my daddy’s house, then I’ll be coming to visit you abi?”she said flippantly.
“Eniola shut up!”I glared at her
“How many times I have warned you not to dip your tongue into Adult issues?”I was actually venting my annoyance at her.

“Don’t talk to my daughter that way!”David told me in a harsh voice still looking at the road.
I turned to look at his face, he wore a frown. See father! I thought to myself. Wonders shall never end! I started to laugh.
David and Eniola turned to look at me, like- am I alright.
“okay, you’ll take your Daughter with you, drop me at my place first, but please bring her back in the evening.”I said, my voice lighter.
“No, I can’t take Eniola without you.”he placed his right hand on my lap, but I pushed it away.
“There’s something I’d want to show you…errrm…Iwant you to meet some people there…”he turned to look at me.
“Some people? Who are they?”
“Wait till you see them.”he smiled.
“Am I safe?”I creased my eyebrows
“Yea, very safe.”he said brushing his hand against my laps, feigning an attempt to change the gear.
I glared at him.
In less than twenty minutes, we were in front a large gate. The gate man opened the gate, murmured some greetings.
I got out, and observed the house.
Truly the house was big, more of a mansion. The interlocked compound gracefully designed with flowers. Well I didn’t expect less, David’s got a taste for big things. I was jolted from my thoughts by Eniola’s giggle.
“Is this your house? You live her daddy?”Eniola asked looking around.
“Yea baby,”David replied sweeping her off her feet.
“Hmm, no wonder my mummy said I’m a princess, so my father has a beautiful palace:”she said meditatively.
“Lets go in.”david laughed.
“Your wife and your children? They are in?”I asked on impulse.
For the first time it struck me that the”Some people”David was talking about could be his wife and children.
He turned to look at me, in some kind of amused way.

“Lets get in first.”he led the way.
I followed at a slow pace, I’m not ready for any drama o. What if his wife poured hot water on me? Or she trys to fight me?
“Here we are!”David placed an excited Eniola on a sofa.
I stood by the door, waiting for what will happen next.
“Anybody home?”David called out.
“David ekabo! Welcome.”I heard a female voice coming from the kitchen direction.
I turned swiftly, to see who she is.
She was standing there staring at me, my jaw dropped as I couldn’t decide what to do or say next.
