THE NEW HOUSE LEKKI STORY.
He looked at his watch. It was almost just a few minutes past the hour of ten and he was obviously in a hurry to make an appointment, he looked at his watch again, this time for a little while longer, as .he fumbled with his key looking distraught.
He pulled out his cell-phone from his pocket and was about to make a call when a call came in, he picked up, and as such was telling the person on the other side of the call how he had been waiting forever for her.
Just a few minutes later, a lady walked up to him carrying a brown handbag, that was slung rather smartly, she smiled at him and gave him a hug , a hug he hesitantly accepted.
He pulled away rather slowly, asking her why she came late and not at the appointed time, she smiled, telling him he was too serious and would need to lighten up.
“Lighten up Frank”, she said, fumbling with the door handle of the car, seeing that the car was still locked, he smiled and put a key in the car lock opening it.
She said something under her breath, feigning anger. He got in the car, gently reaching out to hold her arm, “now, you should lighten up baby”, he said, she looked in his eyes smiling.
“But why are you late, Ifeoma?, he said. She smiled again. “We are going to Nedcomoaks”, she said. He looked in her eyes incomprehensively. “Nedcomoaks, what is that?”, he questioned.
“They have the right deal for us, we want a house for rent and we need to buy a house for Mama for her birthday. I think i am tired of the waka waka, now we can rest baby, and let the professionals do the search for us, and the pricing is really good too.”
“Ah, i thought we were going out to look for houses, why are you just telling me this, arrgh, he said”.
“Better late baby, at least we have a lead now, a good one”.
Emma told me about the company, she claimed she used it last year when her husband came back from the states and had enough money to buy a new house. and you know how Emma always has the gist and always gets the best deals, and she said the house has been a really good buy, they are even thinking of buying another one in Lekki early next year using the same company.
“I should check them out online and get a good preview of their different properties then, i do not expect them not to have a website”, he said typing on his Mobile device. “I got it’, he screamed slightly as he motioned for Ifeoma to join him.
“Wow, really lovely houses”, he said wrapping his hands around her shoulder as he used the other to swipe through the phone.
“I really think we should give them a call now”, Ifeoma said looking into his eyes. “Why don’t we just go to their office”, he commented, “we have a car, and we were going out before, and thanks to your lateness, the traffic seems to have subsided”.
“Alright then”, she said. “Nedcomoaks real estate company, here we come”, he roared, putting a key in the ignition and zooming off.
