Toke: “yes” she summoned courage and asked after Lady B stopped talking.
Lady B: “I don’t do men but I do women and trust me, that is even more lucrative than doing women” she said.
Toke: “I don’t understand, ma” she asked, her eyes as if they would pop out of their sockets.
Lady B: “of course you do. You only find it difficult to believe” she said.
Toke: “okay ma, but is that why you were crying?” she asked.
Lady B: “I am crying because my grandmother who is my only surviving family member is dead and the villagers went ahead to bury her without even waiting for me. She was my only surviving family member and now I am like an orphan with nobody but myself in the world”
Toke: “oh, I am so sorry to hear that. I know how painful death is because I still remember vividly the pains I felt after I lost my mother. It is something that I can never forget. Don’t worry, you have me and God and that is more than enough. I promise to always stand by you the way you helped me when I had no place to go to” she assured her.
Lady B: “It is because I see you as family that is why I am saying this to you. I mean we just have a lot in common. To think that we were deflowered by the same man and you helped me carry out vengeance on him is just more than a coincidence. That is why I want you to join me in this trade, my sister it is very lucrative and before you know it, if you are hardworking, you will even become richer than I”
Toke: “which trade ma? You told me you don’t do business so I really don’t understand”
Lady B: “what is it that you don’t understand again? Okay, let me ask you, how many men have you had sex with in your life?”
Toke: “I have known only two men and the two men all raped me. I had wanted to preserve myself until I get married”
Lady B: “okay, you see what I am talking about? Two men forced their way into you without giving you anything. Do you know how much you can make by servicing one woman?”
Lady B: “don’t tell me you think I do women for pleasure, hell no. I sleep with women and get paid. They pay me handsomely for that matter”
Toke: “God forbid, that is lesbianism, over my dead body” she said, flipping her fingers over her head.
“What God forbids is you being raped by two men against your wish. God will forbid it more if you are still foolish enough to give your body to another man and get nothing whereas you can go out with your fellow woman who will pay you well for your services” Lady B said.
Toke: “but I am just 22, I am too young to do that. Besides, the women may not like me” she complained.
Lady B: “Trust me, you don’t want to know at what age I started this business. And who said the women will not like you? Those women even prefer young blood to us and they pay young people well. Just make sure you satisfy them well and you will become rich in no time”
Toke: “How do I satisfy them? I don’t have a…a…”
“You don’t have a manhood right? Have you heard of vibrators and sex toys before?”
Lady B: “okay, let me show you how it works” she said and went into her wardrobe. After few minutes, she returned with different sex toys and Toke’s eyes popped out at their sizes.
Lady B: “these are the things we use to give ourselves and our partners pleasure. These are for my personal use. Anytime I am in the mood and I am at home, I fuck myself with it and trust me, they are even better than what most men have in between their legs. So, you see, at the end of the day, I give myself pleasure without going to meet any man and without the fear of getting pregnant or contacting any disease”
Lady B: “no buts. It is very easy, do whatever the women ask you to do. Sometimes all you need do is finger them, touch them, or suck their nipples until they cum. They will do the same to you until you cum and that is it, you get paid”
Toke: “I can never do that to a fellow woman, it is a dirty and unholy act. I am sorry ma, but you have to desist from doing such things. This was the same sin that made God destroy Sodom and Gomorrah”
Lady B: “abegi, see this one o. Who are to preach to me? Where was God when we were raped repeatedly? My friend wake up, we are in the 21st century and in this century, same sex marriages have been legalized in some parts of the world so there is nothing to worry about. You want to go back to school right? This is your opportunity to make money for your education” she said.
Toke: “I cannot do it. Yes, I want to go to school but I don’t have to do this before I can return to school, I am sure my mother will not approve of this”
Toke: “leave the dead out of this. They are dead and gone and they have nothing to do with the living. The only way you can go to school is to do this and get money because there is nothing like free education in this country. In this federal capital territory, you will need at least N20, 000 before you can even enroll yourself in a public school so wake up my dear”
Toke: “I can do other jobs. I can be your maid and help you do all you need for in exchange for school fees and a roof over my head. Anything legitimate but not this, please”
Lady B: “I was this stubborn before. As a matter of fact, if anyone had told me that I will consider this as an option, I wouldn’t have believed but when hunger and homelessness dealt with me in this city and when I heard that my grandmother was at the verge of dying because she had no money to take herself to the village clinic, I had no option than to plead with my friends who were already into this to show me the way. So, I will give you some time to think about it. Remember, I am not saying that you should do this for ever. Do this for a couple of time, get some money and invest, that way, you can train yourself to any level you want without doing it again. A word is enough for the wise” she said and left the room, leaving Toke more confused than she had been when she ran out of her village few months back without an irking on where she was going to and how she was going to survive.
Two weeks later, Toke was on her bed preparing for sleep when lady B entered the room.
Lady B: “wake up, I have given you enough time to think about our discussion and you are yet to get back to me. I have waited patiently for you to come on your own and now I have run out of patience. Are you in or out? If you tell me you are not interested, I will throw you out of my house this minute.
Toke: “you will throw me out at this time of the night? Please ma, where will I go to this night? I don’t have anyone in this city” she said sitting up from the bed.
Lady B: “that is for you to worry about, it is none of my business”
Toke thought of the tales of how kidnappers and ritualists were on rampage at that part of the city and she knew that she could not risk being thrown out of the house and so she agreed.
Toke: “I am in. I will do it. So long as it will give me money to sponsor myself, then I will do it after all, I went through worst situations back then in the village” she said with determination even though she knew that she could never bring herself to do such a thing.
“I have been too foolish for long before I left the village but this time around, I am wiser. I will never indulge in such sin but I will make it legitimately in this city, that is certain” she said to herself,
Question: Ah, is Toke thinking of joining joined bad gang? Will she succeed at the trade? Did she take the wise decision?
