Sasha lay on her bed, enjoying the warmth
from the sun, as its rays bathed her unclad
thighs-her very natural source of vitamin D.
She could stay-on like that till evening, as
there was nobody to kick her out of bed.
Thank God the -almighty-Kemi left with her
husband the night before, else she’d been
screaming her name up and down the
house. It took her- Sasha alot of energy to
plead with Kemi to leave her behind. What
was going to Lagos for? After all, she’s
written her final paper, Kemi agreed after
Kenny informed her that they would both
fly to Lagos for their PostUTME which is
coming in a few weeks.
Sasha sighed, hugging her pillow tightly. It
was like nobody’s home because her
mother resumed work, even Kola and
Cassandra all went to school. Her Father
left home very early, his pregnant princess-
Joyce is in her room-as usual.
Sasha spread her legs, as the warmth the
sun rays increased its intensity.
“So sweeet..” she yawned.
“Sasha?” the door creaked open.
“Yikes!” she gasped, pulling the covers over
her half unclad body.
The least she needed that moment was
someone invading her ‘privacy’
“Oops!” Kenny froze, as he watched her
cover herself nervously.
“Next time you should knock!” Sasha eyed
“How was your night?” He strolled into the
room, ignoring her eyes.
He placed the glass of juice he’s holding on
“pullease….Kenny! I’d appreciate it if you
would leave this minute! I’m almost
“I’m going nowhere!” He snapped.
“Kenny, please nao…” she resolved to
“Kenny tori Olohun, please…” she rubbed
her palms together.
“hmmm…why are you still in bed? When
your mates are attending to their
husbands!” Kenny feigned anger
“Husbands? ” Sasha scoffed.
“Uhmm.” Kenny drank his juice half way.
“Here, drink this up!” he offered her the
glass. She drained it obediently.
“Good girl! Now get yourself outta that bed
and clean up!” He ordered.
“Yes Papa!” Sasha laughed.
“Who’s papa? I’m your husband!” he
“Yes sugar plum!” she laughed some more.
“Hian! Sugar plum? This girl! You have
spoil finish!” He shook his head walking to
“Waiting at the living room!” he added over
“Okay.” she sprang out of bed.
Sasha watched the door close, a wide grin
plastered on her face. Kenny was a twin
The duo chattered like magpies as they
filled ther empty stomachs with whatever
food they could find. The large tins of
beverage were the ‘centre of concentration’
as they used it to make different foods
ranging from tea to deserts.
“uuuhhh lalalala” Sasha sang as she spread
a thick paste of milk,bournvita and sugar
on a slice of bread.
“yummy yum! This is what I call Sugar
candy Kingdom.” she savoured the dripping
“lemme have a bite..” Kenny licked his lips.
“have it all boy! I could easily make
“soo sweet!” Kenny scratched his ears.
“Big daddy’s gonna slash our throats
today.” he added.
“oh yea! So we better enjoy our lives now!”
Sasha mumbled chewing a chunk of Suya.
“What do they expect? They didn’t leave
breakfast for us! Not even left overs.”
“Its like that Ibo woman ate our breakfast.”
“No she can’t!” Sasha replied moving a
spoonful of powdered milk towards her
“This is ‘chocolate plus banana delicacy’ ”
Kenny said excitedly spreading a thick
paste of bounvita on a half peeled banana.
“Looks so inviting…” Sasha giggled, rushing
to take a bite.
“I’m even tired of eating sef!” Kenny made
“Don’t get tired jor! Its our turn to shine!”
Sasha said licking her fingers noisily.
A loud cough filtered through their ears
making them freeze.
“Omo Ibo is up!” Kenny sighed regaining
“Don’t talk to her!” Sasha whispered.
“Yea, she should look for our trouble first!”
Kenny agreed munching some suya.
“Oh my God! What a waste of resources!”
Joyce shrieked walking into the dinnning
“What on earth is wrong with the both of
you? Do you know how much a tin of milk
costs?” She scolded.
Sasha exchanged looks with Kenny who
signalled to her to keep quiet.
“What rubbish!” Joyce hissed, the sight of
the teenagers alone was enough to annoy
“Just look at how dirty you’ve made the
table covers…what sort silly kids are you?”
The duo continued to savour their ‘food’
without a second glance at her. Sighing
quietly she turned towards the kitchen.
“Missy! Come..come..come…what were you
saying? I’m sure you weren’t talking to us.”
Kenny called after her licking his fingers.
