IN LOVE WITH THE DJ (Episode 7)
The meeting between Anita and her video director took place in the afternoon in a restaurant. Although she begged Charles to accompany her, he declined saying he has something equally important to do at the exact time. Anita entered the restaurant with her charming smile as she saw the video director already waiting for her.
‘Mr. Johnson, it’s so lovely to see you again.’ She greeted sitting adjacent him.
‘It’s my pleasure. You are looking stunning.’ He replied.
‘Thanks so much. I have taken time to see a couple of your work and I must say they are really impressing.’
‘I don’t do substandard videos. Most of these popular artists know me, I always give a clean job. The only thing is that most artists don’t want to pay what is required.’ Johnson explained.
‘I understand, that’s why I agree to give you three fifty thousand for it.’ Anita said.
‘Madam it can’t work at that price, the least I can do it is four hundred thousand.’
‘But Mr. Johnson, I have already told you that is all I have.’ Anita complained.
‘I like your song so much and a song as powerful as that needs a good video. And that’s what am going to give you, just try and pay the price.’ Mr. Johnson explained.
‘All right, so when are we getting started?’ She asked.
‘As long as the money is ready. I don’t joke with my work.’ Mr. Johnson replied.
‘Ok, I will give you half now and the other half when the job is on the way.’ Anita said.
She brought out her phone and gave Mr. Johnson to enter his account number which he did. She tried forwarding the sum of two hundred thousand naira into the account but the transaction failed. It kept displaying incorrect pin.
‘Oh my God, this is a mess. Mr. Johnson am sorry, the transaction is not going through. I will check with my bank and transfer it latest tomorrow evening.’ She said rising up to leave.
‘No problem, I will be expecting it.’ Mr. Johnson said as Anita left in a hurry.

Segun came back in from seeing his friend off to see Clara sitting calm enjoying a drama streaming from the television.
‘ Clara baby, how far? See your skin so fresh.’ He sat beside her and gently caressed her thighs.
‘Nature abeg leave me joor, I didn’t come for that.’ She rebuffed.
‘Please Clara, I need a massage. Had this all night show, my whole body aches.’ Segun requested.
‘Am afraid I can’t do that, just received a sudden call. I have to get going now.’ She lied.
‘But I thought you are going to spend the night here.’
‘That was my plan but right now I have to go. I promise I would come over for the weekend.’ Clara promised before she left.
After she had left, Segun lay his tired body on the sofa and slept off.
