My Neighbor’s Wife


Written by Onomi aka princess Joanna✍️


Its was on a Sunny day, the sun was so hot that I was sweating all over my body, After packing all my furniture and the little items I had in my apartment to a new one.

Moving to a new apartment can be so exciting but stressful, I was staying at a Bed sitter ,its like a one room ,bathroom and kitchen as a bachelor for 3 years now.
I felt I needed a change of place and since I might love to get married next year, i rented a two bedroom apartment.

Its was at a very nice area, light and water is steady ,the type of place I like, its not rowdy, just four tenant including my self, Two upstairs and two downstairs. Its very close to my place of work. Transport expenses will reduce.

I started parking my things into Tunde’s car.
Tunde is like a brother to me, We attended the same primary school , secondary school and still same University but his loves for women is something else, he is cute and he got the money so they love him too.

I and Tunde works at the same Oil firm too but since he went to study more courses Aboard, his pay is higher than mine but he still got my back.

After moving all my stuff into his car, I went to see Baba Ayo to tell him, I am leaving.
Baba Ayo is a very nice man, its difficult to see a good landlord this days.
Even when my rent is due and I don’t have enough money to pay up, he will still be patient with me and pray for me to get married and move to a better and big apartment.
We have never had any argument before neither have I seen him quarrelling with Tenants.

He likes his compound clean and well taking care of. ..I even barely have time to stay at home because of work, unless am on leave , you know man must hustle.

Baba I am leaving now, I said to him.
Baba was lying down outside his corridor listening to his favorite station on radio.

Thank you baba
we both bow down to greet him and left.

We drove to the new apartment and start parking in out my things and to arrange it in the apartment .

As we were arranging, since my place was the second flat upstairs, its wasn’t easy carrying load and climbing the stair case, that day I knew.
Tunde and my new neighbor downstairs was really helpful. They made the work faster and easier.
I was so tried but happy.

Guy make we ask your nearest neighbor for water na , I am so thirsty oh…

Wasiu has left already, I for ask am, why you no talk on time , how I go just go knock person door like that. ..I said to Tunde.

Ok let’s go together, shy shy boy.
We came closed to their gate, Tunde heard some noises from their bed room since it was close to the Entrance. .

E be like say the people they shag oh, let’s go out to buy water. I whispered to Tunde

He didn’t listen to me and he knocked .
Nobody answer..
He knocked again..

Am coming, it was a male voice.
I noticed he peeped through the window before answering us.

After a while He came out.
Good afternoon sir
We greeted him
I am your new neighbor, sorry to bother you , please my friend is thirsty ,please we need drinking water, don’t know if you can help us.

Ok baby baby…he called his wife.
Am coming dear.
She came out and didn’t show her face, maybe she was dressing up.

He whispered into her ears and they both went inside.

Don’t worry she will get you some bottle water, he said before entering their apartment.

After sometime she came out with the water. ..

We were both shocked when we saw her and we both screamed. ..

AMAKA !!!!

She was so surprise to see us and told us not to shout her name by making a sign.

I began to wonder what was going on.
