Fiction Friday: “Lunch with Ifemelu” – Erotic Fan Fiction Based on Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s Americanah

 
Kiru Taye, a Nigerian-born novelist residing in the United Kingdom, has written an erotic fan fiction short story inspired by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s novel Americanah.

In March last year Adichie became the first African to win the National Book Critics Circle Award for Fiction for Americanah. It also won the 2013 Chicago Tribune Heartland Prize for Fiction and was shortlisted for the 2014 Baileys Women’s Prize for Fiction.

Taye’s story, entitled “Lunch with Ifemelu”, follows the love story of Ifemelu and Obinze.

Obinze is waiting for Ifemelu in a restaurant. He arrived 15 minutes early to please her and to avoid suspicion since he is a married man. He hasn’t seen Ifemelu since she returned to Nigeria, but when she walks into the room he doesn’t need to look up to know that she has arrived.

She was the one person who could faze him and when he lays eyes on her he feels the all too familiar pangs of regret.

A few lines of witty banter later, Ifemelu and Obinze leave the restaurant, and a night of magical bliss follows.

Read the extract:

Her moan rang out, echoing in the hotel room. It felt like forever since he’d tasted her.

“I want to give you so much pleasure, Ifem.” He’d purposely shortened her name. Literally translated it meant, ‘My thing’ or ‘Mine’ qualifying his claim on her.

His hot mouth plunged onto her clit making her gasp. She grabbed the white sheet beneath. Her body quaked as he drove it to a state of madness.

Her skin felt hot to the touch as his tongue glided over the layers of her wetness.

She moaned long and low.

He smirked at her response. One of the things he’d learned in his sojourn abroad was how to use this mouth of his expertly and for climactic effect. He circled his tongue around the sweet bud of her clit, wanting to raise an orgasm out of her. Gentle spasms erupted from her core, spreading over her body announcing the arrival of sweet euphoria.
