Circle, Accra

Episode Seven  (Wine Glass)

 

Femi was standing at the door; she wore a straight face and a little grin across it

 

Shuga: Oh come don’t be shy, give me a hug

 

Femi walked over to where she was and fell into her arms, Shuga embraced her firmly, she buried her nose in Femi’s neck and took a deep breath

 

Shuga: Nice perfume

 

Femi: Thanks Ma’

 

Shuga: Yesterday, I called you several times; I wanted to tell you to stay home because of the rain

 

Femi: Yeah, my phone was not with me when you called

 

Shuga: That’s fine, so have a seat, let’s talk

 

“I know you have had enough time to think about my job proposal, I have been waiting desperately for your reply, and today you are here, and I know very well you have a final decision”, Shuga said

 

Femi: Yes Ma’, I have made my decision and ready to work with you, I will like to work here

 

Shuga: Woow, that’s nice, I am very happy, your presence here I hope will benefit us, We have a lot of rituals we perform to initiate Ladies into our business

 

Femi: Rituals? Which kind of rituals are you talking about?

 

Shuga: Oh, don’t be scared, just some pledges and immunization against some diseases you know

 

Femi: Immunization, Oh cool

 

Shuga: And I want you to be very sincere here, I mean about your status, being Virgin or not?

 

Femi: Errrm, I am not sure whether am virgin or not

 

Shuga: You lose to be virgin if you had had sex

 

Femi: Yeah I have, but with ladies, I had girlfriends in Benin and Nigeria

 

Shuga: Wooooo, haven’t you being with a man before?

 

Femi: Not so much

 

Shuga: Oh okay

 

“ But what you must know is, working for me means you don’t need a boyfriend or a girlfriend, you would be paid well, I mean you enjoy twenty percent of every customer you satisfy, playing as a lesbian will give you a commission of twenty five percent” Shuga explained

 

Femi: I wouldn’t like to play as a lesbian here, just guys

 

Shuga: Oh, then you will enjoy twenty percent commission

 

Femi: I don’t think so; I think we will have to negotiate this, as business partners

 

Shuga: Lol, Femi, you see those ladies out there, they all enjoy below twenty percent, its non-negotiable

 

Femi: I will be cool with thirty five percent

 

Shuga: Are you listening to me at all? I said we don’t negotiate over what you get, you take what you are given

 

Femi: Oh, okay, then I think this discussion is over

 

Shuga: Over?

 

Femi took her bag and made way for the gate, she was not in for “You take what you are given” type of business; she was about getting out when Shuga called her back

 

Shuga: Thirty percent, nothing more

 

Femi: I’ll consider that

 

Shuga: Deal?

 

Femi: Yeah deal

 

 

Shuga was restless, for the first time a lady has challenged her on the commission, she tapped her feet continuously on the ground, and she felt like a loser.

 

 

Tequila was restless, she thought Femi has spent more time in there with Shuga, she also knew Femi was being stubborn in there, she kept looking at Shuga’s office hoping to see Femi appear, but the more she waited, the more she never came out.

 

“So tell me, why don’t you want to meddle with ladies, you told me you have been with ladies before. Is it a decision you just made here or what? You know, you can make more money outta that, I mean doing both men and women” Shuga advised

 

Femi: Yeah, I just want to get a whole new experience you know, so, I’ll stick to men for now

 

Shuga: Do you smoke, or drink or do anything illegal

 

Femi: Oh none of them

 

Shuga: Tonight I’ll send you to one of my wealthiest clients; you will like him, but make sure you come over immediately he is done with you

 

Femi: Oh soo early?

 

Shuga: Of course, I told him you’d be coming, he’s driver is waiting outside, you should get going

 

Femi: Okay

 

Femi rose up and took her bag to go meet the driver, but Shuga spoke again

 

“Oh, not soo fast without a toast to my new employee

She handed a glass of red wine to Femi; they both raised the glasses in midair before taking them

Femi drank the content of the glass; she might have been tasty this whole time

 

“I felt something brush against my throat” Femi said whiles rubbing her throat

 

Shuga: Yeah, that’s the fruits that flavors the wine, nothing strange, you should get going now.

 

Femi: Oh okay, nice wine anyway

 

Shuga: And hey, don’t waste time talking to anyone out there, the driver is waiting

 

Femi: Okay

 

Tequila saw Femi appear from the office, she sighed a relief and watched her closely, Femi seem to be giving her signs she quickly interpreted, She knew her friend was already in for her timeout, she was a bit disturbed, she felt she just sold Femi into slavery.

After forty five minutes of driving, the driver pulled into this massive mansion at Kanda, he motioned Femi to follow him and she did, walking behind him steadily and clutching her bag with both hands, her face revealed her fears and nervousness

 

Woow, I’ve never seen you before, are you new? A man in his sixties bust out in a loud voice which sent Femi stammering for words

 

Femi: Yea ye, yes Sir

 

Man: Don’t be scared, come, take a sit, you are soo beautiful to be in this game

 

Femi: This is my first time Sir

 

Man: Woow, come, let’s go to my room

 

Chief was a widower; he decided not to marry after he lost his wife some twenty years ago, his only son lives in Canada with his family.

As they walked to his room, he made a call to someone who Femi believes might be Shuga, Chief had asked to accommodate her for the night.

Her eyes came to life, she just got business rolling.

To be continued……
