"Bros who be dat babe!" Six pairs of eyes followed Jide's and widened in excitement when they say her. Gloria, 5.11, legs for days, slender arms and a graceful carriage with a face that would have been plain had it not be for those high cheek bones. Gloria is really a sight to behold.
"Oh, na my cousin house girl" Chimdi said and all the guys burst into laughter, playing along with the joke.
But you see, Chimdi wasn't joking. I remember the first time I saw Gloria in my friend's house, I actually thought she was one of her in-laws, my first thought was that if she's an undergraduate in Lagos I would recruit her as one of my event hostesses for @theblackcarpetevents, if I could afford her, that is. You can then imagine my shock when my friend said this is her new house-help.
"Na lie! House girl! Is your cousin okay?" Demola asked when Chimdi had finally convinced them
"Where is her husband? Doesn't he live in Nigeria?" Obi asked
"Mehn, my wife go never gree make this kain chic work for us o! Me sef I no go gree, I'm not ready to marry second wife" Chuks said and all the guys laughed.
"But no be joke o! Why your cousin dey take dis kain risk? How she go put this babe for house say na housemaid?", Yomi was obviously boggled like the rest of them
"Anyway, Chimdi, house girl or not abeg help me arrange the babe. You get her number?" Jide finally said.
Weeks later when I visited my friend I still couldn't take my eyes off Gloria. Besides the fact that Gloria is really attractive she looks and dresses nothing like a maid, plus she's very well-spoken too. But what really nags at one's mind is she's the kind of attractive that knows she is attractive. I've wanted to mind my business for so long but that day, I had to tell my friend about that conversation the guys had, and she said "Nonsense. How can anyone think that my husband can stoop so low to sleep with the house girl?" She asked in genuine amazement.
I never mentioned Gloria again, and I won't. But I can't help wondering if my friend is taking a risk or if her husband is really above cheating on her with a maid. I worry because I have this male friend who always says "a hard penis has no conscience". Fact or nah?
