[story] A cup of passion episode 1




Jemimah rolled on her bed as her friends

sprinkled water on her.”Wake up,sleepy

head”They mocked.

“Oh my God,Just let me sleep”She said


“Let you sleep?..It’s 7:45am.Have you

forgotten we’re having Math 121 test this


anah quizzed.

“Jesus!!”She said and sprang up from the


“Aww…see your friend”Eniola laughed from

the dressing mirror where she was making


Jemimah rushed to the bathroom and within

30 minutes she was done.She knew she

was late for the test already and would have

to wait outside the lecture room.Her

previous day had been so stressful with

lectures.All thanks to her boyfriend,Jake who

brought her home on his old inherited

motorcycle.As she thought of her lover,a

sweet sensation passed through her

Body.Although Jake’s not rich,he at least

gave her love,care,attention and most of it

all Peace.He had pointed it out straight to

her that he wants no intimacy whatsoever

until they are legally married.

A call startled her and she saw it was Eniola


“Hello”She said.

“We’ve been to class,the students said that

man is not coming.He told the H.O.C that he

would be attending a conference at

Uyo”Eniola said.

“Ohh,no problem then…So where are you

guys?”She asked.

“On our way back home before going

out”Eniola said.

“To where…”She asked but Eniola had

disengaged the call.

She shrugged and laid back on the

bed,closing her eyes.Her phone mobile

phone rang once more.She hissed and

reluctantly took it.It was Jake.She

brightened up.

“Hello baby”She said sweetly.

“Hi girl”Jake replied.

“I’m good,where are you?”She asked.

“Yeah,just left the Department now..Heading

to the main gate”Jake replied.

“So hum…Are we seeing today?”She asked

rolling her eyes beautifully.

“No,yòu can’t”Eniola chipped in as she came

in with a Tall,Dark guy behind her.Jemimah

disengaged the call.She hissed bitterly.She

recognised the guy to be,David Ridd,the son

of the multi billionaire,Chief Mark Ridd who

resides in switzerland and controls Nigeria’s

oil from his caliphate.

“Look who’s here,Jemmy”Christianah

said.Jemimah dilated her eyes and hissed.

“Haha,guess jemimah is shy of me”David

replied with his deep voice.

David Ridd is a final year student at the

Department of Petrochemical

Engineering.Just like his father,he’s already

making millions and has a lot of girls

tripping for him but the girls disappear

mysteriously after taking them home to his

base in Lagos.

“Maybe we should excuse,you lovers”Eniola

said and she went out with christianah

behind her.

Jemimah looked hostile and angry.She hates

this guy,she thought but he wouldn’t let her


“Jemimah,i’m here once again to get the

answer to my proposal”David said calmly.

“David or whatsoever you’re called.Don’t

you get it,I have a lover and see(shows him

her fingers).I’m engaged to him.He’s my

world and everything”Jemimah replied and

adjusted herself.

“Err,Well.What’s the essence of eating a

church rat when you have a fat

chicken?”David said and folded his arms.

“Excuse me?”Jemimah asked with


“What good will that poor waif do

you?.Think of it,baby.Won’t he abandon you

if he hits the iceberg?.You deserve nothing

but the best,Jemimah.Fine,you might hate

me but i just hope you would learn the truth

one day only i pray it wouldn’t take a long

time.I think i have to go now.You have my

number.Call me if you need any help.”David

said and stood up.”Girls,you can come

in”He added.

Eniola and christianah entered smiling


“You’re leaving already?”Enny asked.

“Yes,i am”David replied as he brought out

bales of money.He counted some,gave

Eniola and christianah.

“This is for you”He said pointing a fat roll

of money to Jemimah.Jemimah frowned.

“Bring it,Uncle dave..She’s shy.I will give it

to her.”Eniola said.

“Okay,you girls should have a nice

day”David replied and went out of the room.

“Hmm.Jemimah i will advice you go for

David.Stop dating that

Footroener”Christianah said.

“Please i will take everything but not insults

on my boo”Jemimah spatted.

“Boo indeed…Hahaaahaha”The two girls

laughed in mockery.

Jemimah looked away as the money was

forced into her hand.She knew she was

fighting an emotional battle and she hoped
