THE BACK STABBER
Dozie continued to stare at her attractive
body as he was torn in between two
walls; to devour her or to hold his head
high. He knew that getting intimate with
Eno was not the right thing to do but the
bulge that had formed inbetween his
thighs was telling him otherwise. He
reached out and drew her close, he
could feel the scent of her perfume, a
scent he recognized as Ferrari’s, a
designer perfume he had one time
bought for his fiancée.
Eno, encouraged by his reaction raised
her head up. She was of average height
and he was tall, she had to raise her
head if she was to kiss him while he was
standing. She drew her lips close to him
and drew his breathe. He grabbed her
and began to kiss her hungrily.
Countless times he had heard stories of
how grooms to be bang other ladies a
night before they tie their nuptial cord.
He didn’t know that he would ever fall
victim. As he began to explore the inside
of her mouth with his tongue, he threw
caution into the wind and began to
caress her with his finger. He couldn’t
wait to devour her as her soft boobs
brushed over his hard chest. He threw
her to the bed and began the painful
task of undressing himself for it was not
long that he entered the hotel room
when she came in. He sat at the edge of
the bed and began to remove his shoe
which he was finding difficult to remove.
She drew near to him and held him from
behind deliberately ticking his back with
her hard nipples. The sensational feeling
that act gave him sent hot blood down
his thighs and he felt himself getting
harder in between his thighs. He flung
the shoe on the floor and joined her on
Dozie grabbed Eno and turned her back
to him for he wanted to take her from
behind. Possessed with passion, he
came down upon her, ready to
Eno: “Wait, not so fast”.
Dozie: “What! Why should I wait? Isn’t
this what you have always wanted?”
Eno: “No, this is what you want rather”.
Dozie: “So, what are you doing here you
Eno: “I am here to give you the biggest
pleasure of your life. She drew her full
breast in her hands and kissed it
sending him wild with desires. “You
want some? Do as I say”.
Dozie: “Do what? Anything. I will do
anything you say. Just allow me in”.
Eno: “Okay, I want you to…”
Dozie: “Shhh…you don’t need to say
anything. Consider it done”.
Eno: “But you haven’t heard what the
Dozie: “I will do anything you say, trust
me. He parted her legs and gave her his
head, his tongue moving in and out of
her honey pot. Few minutes later, he
was on top her pounding and
After two rounds, he suddenly came
back to his senses and began to regret
his actions. He looked at Eno curled
beside him pretending to be asleep and
he noticed that she was not as attractive
as he had seen her when he was high
with desires. Disgusted with his
behavior, he tapped her violently on her
Dozie: “Get up and get out. Hey, I know
that you can hear me, stop pretending to
be asleep”. He shook her again, this time
Eno: “What is it? Is it morning?”
Dozie: “You crazy or something? Who
would allow you stay here till morning?
You forgot that tomorrow is my
Eno: “Which wedding?”
Dozie: “My goodness. You are such a
psycho. Hello, tomorrow is my wedding
and I am getting married to your best
friend for that matter. And you are
supposed to be her maid of honor even
though I am not sure she would want
you to do that if she finds out that you
Eno: “There is not going to be any
Dozie: “I beg your pardon?”
Eno: “That is the condition I was talking
about. You agreed to whatever condition
Dozie: “And who is gonna stop my
Eno: “I will. In fact, you did. You spoilt
your wedding the moment you slept
Dozie: “Oh, you are one hell of a crazy
girl. What we just had was a fling, call it
misuse of passion if you like. You
wanted it, I was in the mood and I gave
it to you. Nothing more”.
Eno: “You dare not, Dozie. You cannot
use me and go free, that wedding must
not hold, else you will pay”.
Dozie: “I dare not? Okay, I dare you. Go
and do your worst and my wedding
must hold whether you like it or not”. He
began to drag her out of the room.
Eno: “You will pay for this, I swear that
you will pay for this”.
Dozie: “Get out and get lost!” he banged
the door after her and ran to the
bathroom to wash himself”.
Mama Samantha: “You look stunning in
your wedding dress, my daughter. I am
so proud of you. Can we pray before you
step out? We need to invite God to take
over the ceremony in a very special way”.
Samantha: “There you go again, mum.
Do we need to pray again? Who didn’t
pray when he or she woke up this
morning? Isn’t that enough?”
Samantha’s mother: “It is not enough o.
Samantha: “It is okay, mum. We are
already running late for Church. We don’t
wanna keep the pastors waiting
because we were ‘praying’”. She said.
They left for Church in the Range Rover
car which Dozie had provided to convey
his bride to the Church, Samantha with
Eno sitting beside her. It was a selfie
session as Eno kept updating various
pictures on social media with different
captions to the delight of Samantha.
“I have something to tell you”. Eno said
when they drew close to the Church.
Samantha: “Oh, can’t it wait until after
Eno: “It is about Dozie”.
Samantha: “My hubby? What is it?”
Eno: “Erm, I…We..I mean”, she stuttered
Samantha: “Yes, you?” she asked
searching into her eyes.
Eno: “I just feel I need to tell you because wedding dresses for tall brides
we are best of friends and I won’t ever
forgive myself if I allow you go to the
altar without this knowledge”.
Samantha: “What are you saying? Just go
straight to the point and stop beating
about the bush”.
Eno: “Okay”, she cleared her throat.
“Doziestraffed me last night”.
Samantha: “Dozie what! What the hell
are you talking about?”
Eno: “He banged me. Like we made love.
We had sex”.
Samantha: “You had sex with my fiancé
a night before my wedding?”
Eno: “I didn’t want to. He invited me over
to his room and I went because I
thought it has to do with you. Next thing
he seduced me and threw me on the
Samantha: “Oh, my God. My head is
Eno: “I am sorry, Samantha. But he said
he intends to stand you up in Church. He
said he doesn’t want to marry you
anymore and that he won’t show up in
Church. If I were you, I would call off this
Samantha: “Just shut up…are you sure
about this?” the driver took a turn into
the Church and they all became silent,
each occupied with his own thoughts”.
Dozie was getting dressed with his men
on suit when a team of four masked
men stormed the hotel and kidnapped
him from his room. They had threatened
to kill his friends if they raise any alarm
and after they blind folded him, they led
him away in their tinted V-wagon. They
drove for more than twenty minutes
during which Dozie kept pleading for his
life. They stopped at what seems to him
the middle of Sambisa forest and
removed the blindfold from his eyes.
They were in an uncompleted building
and he was standing before a plump
man whom the other’s referred to as
Capon: “Hey, lover boy, raise your head
well make I see your face”.
Dozie: “What do you want from me and
why have I been brought here?”
Capon: “Hahahaha, I see say una never
teach this vegetable enough lesson. Oya,
make una teach am lesson wey go make
am respect him elders”.
They pounced on him and began to
punch him with their fists, shoes and
belt. He was manhandled from one
person to another and he passed out.
The capon commanded that they strip
him of his wedding suit and pour him
ice-like cold water. He woke up and
began to shiver with cold. “Please, tell me
whatever it is that you want, I will do it.
Anything, just tell me”. He was on his
knees for pain could not allow him get
Capon: “Here is your phone, call your
fiancé and call off the wedding. I will
count to ten for you to make that call,
else I will shoot you and have my boys
bury you here. 1….2….3”
