Six years ago, I got a job with one of the old generation banks. It was a lucky chance. On assumption of duty, I met Tayo and the rest of my team. Tayo had been working in the Bank for a little over a year before I came on board. His connections got him the job. He is from a wealthy political family. Tayo and I became very great friends because he was down-to-earth. In fact, many colleagues mistook our closeness for dating. Tayo must have realised this and he took maximum advantage of it. One evening at the close of work when most of our colleagues had closed for the day, he came to my office and gently locked the door. I was startled and confused. As he drew close to me, he mumbled some inaudible words. The nice scent from his loosely unbuttoned shirt got me freaky. I felt a throbbing movement down my pussy. By now, Tayo and I were face-to-face, with his breath caressingly breezing my powdered face. His mouth went straight for my mouth. We were locked in a passionate kiss. His hands grabbed my bum and squeezed it. I enjoyed it and began to moan. He then used one hand to cover my mouth and turned me around. As I held my desk for support, he unzipped my skirt and dragged both the skirt and my pants down my legs. I didn’t even know when his turgid dick propped out. Without delay, he slid it into my wet pussy. I felt as if I was on cloud nine. After like five minutes of constant jerking in the doggy style position, Tayo came, releasing his sweet juice into me. I didn’t care because I was in my safe period. I really enjoyed the quickie. But I had to warn him not to try to do it again. I told him it should just end like that, and we should keep what happened as a secret. Nothing more again. But within me, I like Tayo; and I know that Tayo liked me too.
It was not too long before people started to match-make us, saying that if we got married, we would make a perfect couple. I fancied that idea also. The only issue was, Tayo had a fiancee. The daughter of another powerful political figure. We knew it would be difficult for him to break up with her because everyone knows the rich marry the rich. On my own part, I am just from an average family and I got to that bank by God’s grace. Tayo flirted with me no doubt. But I saw in his eyes that he did not want to hurt his fiancee. After the quickie we had in my office that day, we decided it was best to just remain friends. My family even got to know about our friendship. My mom loved Tayo. He was a perfect gentleman.
Seeing that Tayo and I couldn’t be together, Tayo introduced me to his best friend; Shola. Shola is also from their political class but having heard so many nice things about me from Tayo, he liked me. I liked Shola but not as much as I liked Tayo; I must confess. Tayo got married a year later. Shola and I followed suit six months later. Both guys were each other’s best man. We were like a family. We regularly exchanged visits. I used to catch Tayo’s eyes glance at me when no one was watching. Yes, we both knew there was this bond between us but we also knew we could never cross that line.
After some time, Shola began to get uncomfortable with Tayo’s closeness with me and he told Tayo to back off because we are now married. Shola even warned me to cut all ties with Tayo. Later, relocated to another side of town and didn’t tell Tayo where we moved to. It was so bad that when Tayo’s wife gave birth, we could not attend the naming ceremony. Tayo had long become head of another business desk at work. So, we didn’t even get the opportunity to see each other at work. Unfortunately, Tayo’s wife and baby were involved in a ghastly accident and both of them died. We had to reach out to him, no matter the frosty relationship between him and my husband had.
Tayo was a mess. He was a broken man. No one could console him. He took time off work and started to drink. His younger sister who is also close to me confided in me that the family was worried that Tayo was going to destroy himself with grief. One day, I had to go and see Tayo without my husband’s knowledge. At least, for friendship and old-time sake.
My meeting with Tayo revealed so much. Tayo was upset with me for abandoning him because of my husband, Shola. I had to explain that Shola banned me from contacting him. He said he regretted the day he married his wife because he knew in his heart, their marriage was not going to last. He lamented the way death struck and took away his wife, but kept emphasising that his heart was with me. Tayo said the real reason Shola, my husband; cut ties with him was that he found out that he (Shola) was cheating on me and he challenged him. He further said that he regretted not marrying me. That was a big revelation. I was perplexed! Shola my husband was cheating on me?. Tayo admitted that fate has made him lose his wife and he will make sure he does not lose me. I asked him what he meant. He said he would take me away from Shola and marry me. “That’s not possible” I responded. I have always had strong feelings for Tayo, he too, had the same for me. But we could not pursue it at that time. Now, Tayo is willing to do anything for me to be by his side. By that time, I was sobbing silently. He drew me close, wiping my tears. Unconsciously, his lips brushed mine. And a fresh fire of passion was reignited. We kissed and caressed each other like two lost lovers. The romance led to sex that day. I knew it was not supposed to be so but who can judge me? Moreso, I just learnt that my husband was doing the same. At least, I was doing it with someone who I should have married but allowed circumstances to push us apart. I later confronted my husband about his cheating on me. He admitted and was very remorseful. He begged and promised to do anything for our marriage to work. So, I told Tayo that I preferred to stay with my husband.
Tayo is dead serious about going ahead with his threats and it seems nothing can stop him; thereby putting my marriage in jeopardy.
Telling my husband about Tayo’s threats will not help either because he would find out that I had betrayed him. But the truth is I don’t want to shatter my marriage. It is my priority. Even though I know I love Tayo more than my husband.
