Themba didn’t respond to Mbali’s text until two days later.



There was no response. She needed a new plan.

Monday morning she knew he was off so she got up early and made breakfast. She took it to his room hopeful. She knocked on the door and he gave a sleepy invitation for her to enter. She went in with a smile, greeted him and put the tray on his bedside table. He greeted back and thanked her for the breakfast. She smiled and winked at him on her way out. She returned to her breakfast on the kitchen counter.

Ten minutes later he came out of room and went to the bathroom. When she heard him returning to his room, she went to collect to tray.

“You done?” she asked, still smiling.

“Yes, thank you,” he grinned. “How about that massage?”

“What massage?” she asked as she turned at the door.

“The one you promised,” he said still grinning.

“Neck and shoulder rub is what it was, not a massage.”

“Big deal,” he said rolling his eyes.

She walked out with the tray and took it to the kitchen. Then she went to her room and took off all she was wearing underneath her gown. She put her gown back on and went to his room.

“Lotion,” she said as she walked in his room. He pointed at it on the dressing table and she went to get it.

He was lying on his front with his top off. She knelt over his waist and started working on his shoulders. This is it, she thought. But she didn’t want to be too excited until the deed was done. A lot could go wrong and spoil everything. When she was rubbing his lower back he shifted a few times. She knew the trick was working.

She got up and stood by the bed, rubbing the residue of the lotion on her hands.

“All done,” she said smiling.

He sat up and looked at her. “I don’t think so,” he said pulling her to him.

He kissed her and she kissed him back. He pulled her back on the bed and was on top of her.

“Why are you doing this?” he asked staring into her eyes.

“Because I want to,”

“But you do know that I have a girlfriend back home, and others here. So really, why?”

“Don’t worry tiger, I’m just being lustful,” she said pulling him down to her.

The last thing her mind registered was the sound of the condom wrapper being ripped open.

Afterwards she got up and put on her gown.

“No babes, just lie here with me for a while,” he said pulling her back.

“I have to bath and go to school,” she objected.”

“I’ll bath with you and take you to school afterwards,” he said with pleading eyes.

She had no excuses so she lay back down next to him. They chatted and after a while he asked again, “Why me?”

“Why you, what?” she asked pretending not to know.

“This, I mean you can get any guy you wanted, anytime. Why me?”

“Well the massage because you’re the hardest working person in this house. And the other… well you’re right, I can get any guy I want at any time. I just did.”

After that day they spent every moment they could get with each other. There were stolen kisses whenever the other housemates were not there. They would spend time in each other’s rooms and sometimes they would go out in public together. It was exciting.

Mbali finally got her prize and Themba got a girl that tamed him.
