“no” i breathed, broke away from her hold and moved over to another corner of the room. She laughed, turned and faced me once again.
“sir i’m sorry to say this but you are not behaving like a man. You are not behaving like a man that has seen a woman’s pant. Seriously your behaviour is so annoying” she poured out coldly, while i bit my lips as i returned her gaze.
“i don’t know if you are being paid to mess with me but it’s not going to work. Just get out from my office” i said softly. She gently settled on her chair and shook her head.
“you have already cheated on your wife with me and i know you still seriously want me. I see the desire in your eyes. You are just so indecisive and scared. A very bad character for a man” she murmured, shrugged and continued.
“you should appreciate me for. doing your dirty work for you. I’m just doing what you are supposed to be doing. Do you actually want me to walk away from your life?” she asked and kept quiet. I breathed deeply.
“you talk too much for a student. You have to show a little respect” I cautioned. She stood up and grabbed her handbag.
“call me when you make up your mind. I’m leaving” she said with a sad look and moved towards the door.
“wait” i suddenly breathed. She scoffed, turned and faced me once again.
“i know no one does anything with no gain. So please tell me. What should i expect if i move on with you?. I have a wife i hold so dearly and you know, i can’t replace her with you?” i asked with a furiously pounding heart. She smiled, drew forward and softly grabbed my shirt.
“hmmmm a nicely put question. Well let me be honest, all i hope to gain from you are simply the entitlements befitting a mistress of a lecturer. We are in tough times you know and most times we do things that are out of the ordinary just to survive. I will get you in no trouble with your family and in return you will never allow me get in trouble with my pocket” she said boldly, drawing me back with a strange kind of shock.
“but can i afford you?” i asked as i nervously looked her all over.
“your hair, clothes, makeup, can I ?” i asked.
“how much do you think a lady’s maintenance cost these days? Seriously it won’t even affect your salary. I have to leave now but if you are serious and ready to add some spark into my life. You have to take my offer before one of the new lecturers that came into this school with you takes it” she said softly, breathed deeply and left. I speechlessly watched her leave while my head burned with worry.
Comfort simply was a super witch, so charming and spirited. Even though i was scared of admitting it openly. I so f—–g needed her.
