    I prepared breakfast and we ate together, I went to the bathroom and had my bath then returned to see Veronica watching movie.

    A knock landed on the door, I opened up to find Ugochukwu standing at the door.

    Ugochukwu: papa Vic, my man.

    Me: Ugogoro my real niggar.

    He entered and saw the love of my life sitting on the bed watching movie.

    I breathe out calmly, this doctor no well to dey joke with life and death matter.

    Me: your bank details.

    Doc: yes, yes, right away.

    He wrote it on a piece of paper and passed it to me on the table, I sent the money through mobile bank transfer, his phone on the table made a beep sound and he only looked at it and moved his face.

    Me: check am.

    Doc: I no need to check am, nice doing business with you.

    Profit arrived looking beautiful as usual, she was looking like a cheat among ladies with her outstanding beauty. This one will make her husband insecure, her beauty cheat be like Messi and Ronaldo in PS2 running from post to post without losing the ball.

    She hugged me pressing her sweet front on my chest, my heart started beating different sounds.

    Profit: are you okay sweet, what are you doing in a hospital?

    Ugochukwu: hello, I am here.

    Profit: sorry, good morning. Do I know you?

    Ugochukwu: ofcourse, how you no go recognize handsome gentleman like me. Shopping mall.

    Profit: oh my! Victor’s best friend? am sorry.

    I just dey look there two imagining how I wan carry out my mission, when Ugochukwu is tired of being notice.

    I gave Profit the HIV test result, she took it and read through it and acted cool.

    Profit: what is this?

    Me: HIV test.

    She looked at me suspiciously and then raised the brown envelope she had with her up.

    Profit: I hope this charade is a joke, what is the meaning of this? *she flare up*

    Me: I can’t be around you and your daughter, am sorry.

    Profit: did she put you up to this?

    Me: who?

    Profit: your girlfriend.

    I nodded, she knot a fist trying to calm her temper of not blowing up at me.

    Profit: fu-ck you! You don’t deserve us, your daughter and I.

    She turned and walked away leaving both of us speechless.

    Ugochukwu: why she behave like that? you don use your useless penis scatter that girl brain.

    We drove to the market and bought the bed then drove to the rented apartment in the forest side, we kept the bed inside the apartment and came out to see monkeys jumping around on the trees.

    Ugochukwu: why monkey full this area?

    Me: because na zoo be this.

    My phone rang and I pulled it out of my pocket, the caller was Profit. One mind was telling me not to pick while the other urge me to, the one that want me to pick won.

    And I did.

    And the call ended just like that.

    To be continued.
