The Tycoon's Son ( 4 ) the good life

Selina turned her face a bit and the kiss landed on her cheek.

He looked at her in surprise. This was a first- a woman rejecting him! 

"What's the matter? Don't you like me?" he asked in a puzzled tone.

Selina shook her head.

"It's not that, Chief. It's just you are moving too fast for me. I need some time to..." she started to say.

"Time? What for? I like you. I liked you right from the first day I saw you at the club. And I want you. Agree to be mine and I can give you whatever you want. Just name it and..." he snapped his fingers, "It's all yours!"

"Chief, I'm sorry. Thanks for the offer. But I'm a responsible lady, properly brought up from a good Christian home. I don't mess around with men. I..."

"I know," said Chief. That's one of the things I like about you. You are not like all these cheap girls around. But consider my offer and you won't regret it. I will turn your life around for good..."

Selina pretended to consider It for a while.

"Alright. Just give me sometime to think about it. Let me go home today and I will call you in a few days."

Three days later, a Friday, Selina packed a small overnight case with enough clothes to last a few days.

Chief's driver was waiting downstairs and she hurriedly locked up her apartment and made her way out.
From a few days' visit, Selina ended up spending nearly two weeks with Chief.

It was all his fault.

"I have to get back home to take care of some things," she said about a week after she arrived.

"What for? Are you not enjoying your stay with me?" he enquired. They were in the upstairs dining room having lunch. Ten year- old- Rume, one of Chief's sons had been with them but had left to ride his bike outside.

"It's not that, Chief. I have an appointment in two days with a business partner of mine," she explained, taking a sip of water.

"Whatever the business will fetch you, I will give you double. So, just relax and enjoy yourself, my dear," he said, smiling at her.

After Chief had gone out to attend to some business, she went to her bedroom. It was next to Chief's room and had a connecting door.

She stood by one of the windows which overlooked a side of the expansive compound. As she gazed at the well-manicured lawn interspersed with royal palms, pine trees and other plants and beautiful flowers, Selina could not believe her luck or how far she had come from her impoverished childhood days growing up in a slum part of the city.

Now here she was in the home of such a wealthy man like Chief and he was 'practically' begging her not to leave! At least for now. How lucky can a girl be, she thought with a smile.

"Lara's eyes will pop out when I bring her here," she said smugly to herself.

She had enjoyed her stay so far with Chief; he had made everything available for her in his well-run luxurious home.

"Just tell Madam Bina if you need anything," Chief had told her the first day she arrived.

The woman was his house-keeper who looked after the house with a retinue of other domestic staff like maids, drivers, cook, gardeners.

A dark, slim woman with a surly look, she had looked at Selina with something akin to suspicion the first time they met. It was like the woman disliked her on sight.

"Naim problem be that. Make I enjoy myself here! If e like, make e frown e face like cat wey get winch!"* she said in pidgin English, turning from the window.

She pressed a button to summon one of the maids to get her a cold drink.

She put on the TV in the room and sat watching a programme on a foreign channel while she sipped her drink.

She must have fallen asleep for the next thing she knew, someone was touching her hair. She opened her eyes to see Chief gazing fondly at her.

"When did you get back?" she asked as she sat up on the bed, yawning.

"Not long," he replied.

"I must have slept off," she said. She got up from the bed and stretched.

"Come with me, dear. I want to show you something," he stated.

She followed him to his room, looking puzzled. Chief opened his briefcase and brought out a large envelop which he handed over to her. Inside was a large amount of money in foreign currency
and two credit cards.

"That's for agreeing to spend more time with me. There's enough money in the cards to do all the shopping you want," he said.

"Ah! Chief, thanks so much! All this for me?" she said excitedly, looking at the money and the cards.

"Anything for my baby. My sweet Selina!" he said fondly.

She threw her arms around his neck and kissed him on the cheek.

"Is that all you can do?" Chief asked. He took her hand and drew her to his large bed.

"Not again, Chief! Don't you get tired?" she asked, laughing.

"Not of you, my dear..." he said, his hand slipping inside her blouse to caress her body. As she gave herself to him, all she could think of was that she would do anything to retain Chief's affection for her so she could get as much 'goodies' from him as possible...

Six months later...
Lexie watched with keen interest as Selina's affair with his father waxed stronger.

He was glad at the turn of events, that the 'bait' he had set had been bitten by his randy father.

'The randy old fool,' he mumbled to himself with a sneer.

From all indications, Chief, according to Selina was crazy about her and could not do enough for her.
Within a short time, he had changed her car and rented another apartment for her in a poshier part of the city, besides other things.

He was even talking about buying her a house before the end of the year. Selina could not be happier.

In all her years of 'hustling' in Lagos and other big cities in the country, Chief was the most generous man she had ever dated.

Even Alhaji Ibrahim, who used to spoil her with gifts and money was like a pauper compared to Chief Agbah.

She had travelled thrice with him outside the country and in both cases, he had given her large sums of money to shop.

She didn't lack for anything. The only condition Chief had given her was she could not go out with anyone else as long she was with him.

"I don't share my women," he had told her bluntly at the beginning of the affair.

She didn't mind too much. Chief took care of all her needs so she could do without the other men in her life.

She had 'sacked' some of her other boyfriends and 'suspended' others, like Alhaji Ibrahim, deciding to devote all her time to Chief for the meantime.

She did not want to put 'sand sand in her own garri'.


Selina was enjoying her time with Chief so much, there were times she forgot the reason she was with him in the first place.

It was Lexie who reminded her in his usual blunt manner.

He had visited her at home about six months after she hooked up with his father and they were discussing the multi millionaire.

"Your dad is so caring. And generous too," she enthused. In the short time they had been together, he had given her millions in cash, besides the numerous gifts.

She had given part of the cash to Lexie as part of the deal they had together.

"Good for you," Lexie said. "But don't get carried away by all this. My father is like the weather- unpredictable; he can change anytime. He might love you now. But what about tomorrow? ...

To be continued...

What are these two schemers up to? And will their plan succeed? Watch out for the details coming soon!!!


"Naim problem be that. Make I enjoy myself here! If e like, make e frown e face like cat wey get winch!"*

Translation (for foreign readers): "That's her problem. Let me have fun here. If she likes, she can frown like a cat possessed by witchcraft!"
