“Mr. Obi – “

 

 

He started awake, jerking as though he’d just stopped himself from falling. Wiping his face from sweat and during-sleep perspiration, he looked around – and then finally up at the woman addressing him.

 

 

“Yes, Rose?”

 

 

She tucked a stray strand of braided hair behind her left ear before answering. “It’s after nine, sir. I thought you would want to go home today.”

 

 

He watched her from underneath his brows, trying to see if she was trying to make fun of him. The lower left corner of her lip twitched as though struggling – and then it gave way to a smile.

 

 

In spite of his embarrassment, he smiled back.

 

 

Carefully untangling himself from the chair, he got up. “Why are you still here?” he asked the watching woman as he shrugged on his blazer. He finished and turned towards her to find her regarding him with a question on her face.

 

 

“You’re still here,” was her answer, and he felt as though he’d asked a foolish question.

 

 

*********************************************************************************************

 

 

“That was a good meeting, wasn’t it?” he asked her, some days after as they drove away from one of their clients.

 

 

“Yes it was,” she responded, but he could tell she was distracted. He turned towards the window, feeling somewhat disgruntled and not knowing why.

 

 

“Kola, drive us to Tobe’s school, please.” She addressed the driver.

 

 

“Yes ma,” Kola responded.

 

 

He turned from his perusal of Ikoyi streets and faced her. “Tobe’s school? It isn’t time to pick him yet, is it?”

 

 

She smiled at him tolerantly, like an aunt indulging her little nephew. “No – but it’s his birthday so he gets off early.”

 

 

The shock that appeared on his face couldn’t be affected. “My goodness! It is?”
