“Welcome to the Stella Obasanjo Hospital,” the shorter man said. “We are so pleased you’ve come to work with us. I am Dr. Olushula Ijalana. You can call me Lou. This is Dr. Joseph Pategi, and this is our staff. He introduced the two nurses and their assistants.
The beautiful dark-skinned nurse was named Adanna. When their eyes met, a distinct look of recognition momentarily swept across her face. When the introductions were done, the visiting team shook hands with the host staff. Charles took Adanna’s slender hand, and she stared up at him with such intensity in her onyx eyes, he couldn’t look away. “Charles Stafford. It’s a pleasure to meet you.”
“You also, Doctor. We are honored that you decided to join us.”
He had to mentally slap himself in order to concentrate on what his colleague was saying. And he was good until Nurse Okoro turned around and preceded them around the outside of the building. The easy sway of her generous hips grabbed his attention like a mugger with an old lady’s purse. Black American women had inherited their voluptuous rear ends from their sisters in the Motherland, but this was the real deal. Charles smiled to himself. It didn’t matter how far removed people were from their native land, some things were ingrained. And any man of African heritage would always admire a spectacular ass.
