Three days later, while she was still awaiting the induced miscarriage which was to be caused by the agbo she took, her friends decided to take her out for business as the woman had assured them that in some cases it takes up to seven days before the medicine begins work.
Her first client was a fat man who picked her in his black Mercedes Benz E550 from the lounge where her friends had introduced her to him. The man had a thick Calabar accent and she struggled to make out the meaning of most of the things that he was whispering into her ears in the car. As soon as they got to his luxurious room in Premium hotel, Chief grabbed her from behind and began to rain kisses on her.
Justina: “Haba Chief, take it easy now. Let us shower before we do anything”.
Chief: “Shower? I don’t have patience to shower before I devour you. Didn’t your friends tell you about me? I am a Calabar man and I don’t joke with things like this. I like it hot, I mean fire for fire. How well you do it determines how much I will pay you”.
Justina: “We are doing it real good tonight,chief. Hope you are ready too? I’m going to eat you raw, eat your banana, give you perfect foreplay. But you will have to taste my plate too sha ooo”.
Chief: “Taste what plate?”.
Justina: Yea, Love. You will lick so tey, the hairs will tangle within your teeth. It will require tooth-pick to dis-tangle the hair from inbetween your teeth. My pay must rise tonight ooo”.
When she pulled off her dress, Chief noticed her rounded stomach but she lied to him that her stomach was bloated because of the beans that she had eaten earlier in the day.
They get down to business and after rounds of marathon sex, Chief fell on the bed exhausted. Justina desperate to impress him and her friends and to get extra cash from him climbed on top him and began to ride roughly.
Chief: “Baby, let me rest and catch my breath. You are too strong; you know I am getting old”.
Justina: “Chief, don’t worry. I will ride this time around, just lie on your back. Calabar man no dey take last for bed”.
After few minutes of horse riding, she observed that Chief had stopped moving, she called his name and when he doesn’t respond, she got down and saw that he had stopped moving and breathing.
In confusion, Justina used the Intel to inform the receptionist and the receptionist in turn alerted the manager who came running into the room with a security man and a police man. After some minutes, Chief was revived and rushed to the nearest hospital while Justina was held in police custody pending Chief’s orders.
At home in the morning, Amaka and Vicky waited for Justina to return and give them their share of the money that Chief paid her and when at 1pm she didn’t return, having dialed her number to no avail, they decided to check on her in the hotel where they know Chief always stays. The receptionist on duty recognized them as they always patronized there with different men.
Receptionist: “Aunty Ammy and Vicky, see as una just dey shine”.
Amaka: “Forget that thing jare, na suffer head we dey o”.
Vicky: “How far na, we wan see Calabar Chief. Is he in his usual room?”
Receptionist: “Ah, una no hear wetin happen to Chief?”
Amaka and Vicky: “What happened to him, what are you talking about?” they chorus.
Receptionist: “Chief faint under woman o. We don’t know what happened but rumor has it that as the girl dey do the thing wey e dey sweet Chief, na so she come press am with pillow so that she go steal him money but the thing come back fire”.
Vicky: “What! This can’t be true. Where is the girl now?”
Receptionist: “She dey police station, them say until Chief well before they go know wetin to do with her. Oga manager no allow her go her house because Chief still dey hospital”.
Amaka: “Which police station?”
Receptionist: “Phase IV police station”.
Vicky and Amaka rush out leaving the receptionist open mouthed.
As soon as they got to the police station, they saw Chief driving in. They ran to him.
Amaka: “Chief, why did you have to arrest our friend now? What did she do?”
Chief: “I never gave orders for her to be arrested. In fact, the manager told me about it when I woke up in the hospital and that is why I am here to ask for her immediate release. The girl has done nothing wrong, she only wanted to please me before this my high blood pressure went up and I fainted”.
In some minutes, Justina was released and Chief paid her for services rendered and for the police stress.
Amaka: “I see that you are still a learner in this business that is why you had to call the receptionist when Chief fainted. Next time, carry your bag and run and make sure no one sees you leaving. You are lucky Chief didn’t die else, they would have framed you up as the killer and you would have spent your remaining days in jail”.
Vicky: “Help me tell her o. Which kind Mumu girl be this one? Hian!” they told her on their way home.
For more than two weeks after Justina took the concoction, she didn’t notice any changes and her stomach continued to grow to her irritation and those of her friends.
Amaka: “What sort of pregnancy is this? We have tried almost all the concoction that we know but it is still there. Very soon it will become very obvious and client will soon notice it and stop patronizing you”
Justina: “I am also tired o, I don’t know what to do anymore”.
Vicky: “That means you will have to go back to the village o. Nobody will patronize you when they notice that you are pregnant”.
Justina: “No, I can’t go back there, just give me more time to sort this out please”.
That evening, she went out with her friends and she met an Alhaji who asked that she follow him to the hotel for few hours, they agreed on the price and she settled down to work when they got to the hotel. Alhaji insisted on turning off the lights and she willing to satisfy him cooperated. Having done what they came for, Alhaji switched on the bulb and noticed the bulge in her stomach.
Alhaji: “What is this I am seeing on your stomach?”
Justina: “It’s nothing, Alhaji. I ate beans and it’s making my stomach look big”.
Alhaji: “Really? Wani irin beans is that one? Kai, yarinyannan, are you sure this is not pregnancy that I am seeing?”
Justina: “Pregnancy? How can you even think of that Alhaji? Who will do this kind of a job with pregnancy?”
Alhaji: “Okay, come here let me touch your stomach and feel it for myself”.
Justina: “How can you touch my stomach? Don’t you believe me?”
Alhaji: “I said it. This girl, you are not only a professional prostitute but you are also a pathetic liar. How can you make me do this? It is an abomination in my place to sleep with a woman who is carrying another man’s child. Allah ya tsine miki”. He picked his phone and dialed a number. “Yes, come to my Convenience hotel, room 100, I have a pregnant lady here who tried to deceive me”.
Question: Who did Alhaji call? What does he intend to do with her and her pregnancy?
