Sexiness was Ruby Woo matte blood lips, hair pulled back with wisps of tendrils gently clinging to her temple, and sultry smokey eyes. As Kamsi slid into the red satin bodycon dress, she was sexiness itself.
Kamsi and Juwon were star-crossed lovers. For years one thing or the other had kept them apart. It was either wrong timing or distance. It was either common sense or reason. But tonight she wasn't going to let anything stand in the way. Juwon had resurfaced and pursued her doggedly for several months and she couldn't deny the chemistry between them, it was as real and as thick as the round hips that burst from her slim waist.
Beyond content with what she saw in the mirror, she pulled open the drawer on the side of the bed and a few seconds later she had found what she was looking for. It was buried under a pile of papers but she knew it was there. Satisfied, she dropped the packet of condoms into her bag. Yes, condoms. Who were they fooling, they both knew how, and where this night would end.
"Damn you're gorgeous" Juwon struggled to tear himself away from her, the heady Oud scent, the silky smooth skin, those curves... Kamsi was too much woman!
"you're still the charmer aren't you, Mr Juwon Davis?" Kamsi lowered her eyes shyly, she still felt a bit abashed about what she was doing, plus Juwon had always made her all hot and bothered.
"What can I say Kaykay, you bring out the best in me"
Dinner was splendid, Kamsi chose the bottle, a 1978 Bordeaux wine. Kamsi was something of a wine connoisseur but tonight wasn't one of those nights she wined to impressed, she knew that two glasses and more would put her in the right mood, would help her relax, would make her unleash...
"So how is Chuka?" Juwon cut into her thoughts
"I thought we'd agreed not to talk about him? Why do you want to ruin a perfect night? Just... Why?"
Apparently it didn't take too much to make Kamsi irritable. Noticing this, Juwon smiled smugly and let his hand drop, under the table, reaching for her smooth thighs. Kamsi visibly relaxed and that was his cue to proceed.
"Stop it Juwon, stop it... You upset me and now you, you.. Ooooh" she moaned softly, his hand had somehow slid between her thighs and she knew it was wrong, she knew she should stop him, she knew she should leave before it became too late. She couldn't, it was already too late.
"How is Chuka?" He asked again.
Juwon's voice was level, firm. His face was straight and his eyes bored into hers. But underneath the table his hand was at work, expertly. Kamsi knew he was playing a game, she loved games. She hated to lose. With all the strength she could muster she replied; "My husband is fine, thank you". Yes! She did it, a tiny feat yet a great victory, she knew she was reaching her peak, he knew it too... But that ability to keep a straight face, a level tone, in the face of such intense pleasure, that was a great victory!
"Hmmmm. I see. So does he know you're here tonight? Does he know you're with me? What do you think he would do if he knew, Kamsi?"
"He would kill you and me both. But let's get out of here Juwon, while we're still alive. I need you..." her eyes held so much meaning. Juwon didn't need any more persuasion, he flung a wad of 1000 Naira notes on the table, more than enough to cover their bill, and in a flash he was on his feet.
They left in their separate cars, but the destination was the same.
Juwon laid in bed and watched Kamsi take her clothes off, slowly, sensuously, teasing him with each move. He enjoyed every second of it, but she was driving him crazy.
"Come here" he lunged forward and grabbed her in his arms. Lowering his head, he kissed her slender neck and slowly worked his way down.
In the days that preceded that moment, Kamsi had imagined this night a thousand times over. In her imagination Juwon was amazing, an expertly skilled lover. Yet where her imagination ended was where her reality began. As he lowered himself Kamsi pushed him gently away and reached for her purse.
"What now?" He asked gruffly, his voice was hoarse with passion
"We should use a condom Juwon, I'm a married woman" she muttered feebly.
"Forget about that", he said, tossing her purse aside. Barely seconds later Kamsi's eyes rolled far into her head as she clenched the sheets.
After several pleasure-filled moments the sated lovers drifted off to blissful sleep.
Like clockwork Kamsi woke up at 6am. Her mind knew she had to be up at 6. However her mind didn't know to differentiate weekends from weekdays. Sigh. Yet, she didn't mind. She snuggled close to him as she allowed a smile tug at her lips, last night was heavenly! She mulled over each detail, each kiss, each moan, each frenetic shiver...
"Good morning Mrs Kamalu" he too had a knowing smile on his lips.
"Good morning Mr Kamalu" Kamsi snuggled even closer, clinging tightly to him.
"Last night shaaa" He said and they both burst into fits of laughter.
"You were amazi..." Just then the door burst open as a giggling little child rushed in, and without asking or waiting for an invitation, jumped into bed right between them. A wet patch was visible on her pink onesie and they both exchanged a look.
"Don't even look at me Chuka, it's your turn today" Kamsi chuckled and Chuka resignedly got off the bed to get their baby's diapers.
On getting to the door he stopped and looked at his wife.
"I love you so much Kamsi, and I love that you keep things fun between us... I know you love me too, I only hope you don't start loving Juwon more than me" he chuckled and Kamsi smiled back.
Years ago, she had decided to find ways to spice her marriage. She swore that despite their hectic schedules, busy careers and the kids, she would never let it get boring for them. Role-playing was one of the games they played and it kept things hot and steamy. Chuka had chosen the name 'Juwon', it was the name of the uber sexy detective in her favorite Nigerian novel. She chose to keep hers.
"I love you too Juwon... Oh Sorry, Chuka" she let out a girlish giggle. Chuka rushed back to the bed in mock anger, to hit her with a pillow, and then tenderly kiss her soft lips.
For the Anon that couldn't sleep... I couldn't sleep either.
