THE PRESIDENT’S DAUGHTER
Its Saturday morning, i got up from bed, did my prayers as I thanked God for everything and asked him for many things. I did some push ups as its my daily routine, i did some cleaning, washing, such as my clothes, the car, and dishes which are not much.
I thought about going to our family Church tomorrow which is Sunday but, what about the car? Should I go with the car?? What am I going to tell whoever that ask me???
Or maybe i should just return the car, but what am I even going there for when i got enough money that’d last me till the end of the exams it will even remain ‘coz i don’t spend much. Wait’o… after Sunday is Monday, I will go to School with a car? not just any car, a Range Rover Sport?? No way! that will caught the attention of many people, me like being on a low key, then i will get unnecessary friends or what if those cult boys attack me and made away with the car… i don’t know if i should return it or leave it at home at Mr. Abuh’s house that has fence, gate and a gateman. Mirabel gave me her word that i can have the car as long as i want, that means she will be spending money everyday or maybe weekly for the car rent or is she the owner? No na, how can she be the owner besides she told me herself that it was rented. Hhmmm… ever since i met Mirabel, I have been cracking my brain so much either by making decisions or academically by studying so hard, when we were competing against each other. And I guess I’ve improved so much in changing my ways for better or lemme say I’ve changed already, I mean common i resisted two hot chicks the other day, I refused to contact that attributed girl that gave me her number, yea what about Esther? I don change jare, I pray never to go back to my old self. I always pray that let the will of God be done in my life.
Too tired already to prepare hard food, so i prepared some noodles to help me for the morning. I don’t even have any plans for the day, aish…
Yea, lemme call those that i missed their calls yesterday. I took my phone surprisingly no missed calls, only messages. Who else will send me message if not Mtn or 4100.
I dialled Promise’s number, but i was warned that i don’t have enough credit so I just flashed her.
I waited for about 7 minutes but she didn’t call back. I threw the phone on the bed while I laid on it.
I felt so bored, I took the phone again so I’d on my data chat on Whatsapp a little then check whats happening on facebook. I don’t like seeing message icon at the top of my phone’s screen, so I decided to just read the messages so that it will disappear from there. On seeing the messages, I almost thought that I was right when I thought it was messages from Mtn or 4100 as I saw their 2 messages each, until I saw a message from Mirabel, her own was even the first since 6:48 am and my current time was 9:17 am. I could hear my heart beating when I was about to open it.
Good Morning Cute, I know you will wake up to see this message so I thank God for that. I do hope U had a nice dream.
Just wan’ to let U know that, I’ll be coming to your place today, dunno what time specifically ‘coz I wouldn’t like to disappoint but I’m certain it’d be around afternoon time. Please, no need to prepare anything, I will be coming with lunch. Till then, Byee…Love ya!
All this Love ya Love ya of a thing sef, are we officially dating already? Me myself don’t even understand again. We have to talk about it, I have to give my consent on it. No no no no… I should start the relationship, I’m the guy and I have to talk to her then ask her to be my date. But I don’t think I’m ready yet, I don’t know what I feel yet, I don’t even understand my heart beat yet,,,, WHAT THA’ H£LL IS LOVE?
HOW DO I KNOW IT??
HOW CAN I FEEL IT???
SOMEBODY SHOULD TELL ME HOW TO LOVE!!!
I screamed out at the top of my voice.
My phone ringtone woke me up from my slumber.
Me: I just dey
Promise: I saw your missed call
Promise: Didn’t U call me?
Me: I did call U but when did U saw it?
Me: See your life abi
Promise: Ehnn… what about it?
Me: U don dey get boyfriends up and down nau (teasingly)
Promise: *Laughs* no be only boyfriends. What about U? I called U yesterday but U didn’t pick up, where were U??
Me: I was driv… I was on my way on home
Me: What? Why are U humming??
Promise: Nothing jare
Me: U eh….if i catch U
Promise: Leave me jare, go and meet your olosho them
Promise: Oppss… didn’t say nothing, byee…
That girl eh… very stubborn, she’s almost a tomboy, if I catch her… she hasn’t even come to my place since I told her to.
*Car horns* | horns again*
Oh! I checked my time, its afternoon already… I think my visitor is here.
I got out and stood on my doorsteps, I saw her standing at the side of her car with her facing me. There, where she stood looking at me smiling, oh my goodness! she’s a beauty i just realised. Her stature, smiles, beauty, sophistication and uniqueness pleased me instantly. She really looks adorable, d–n… I think I’m in Love with this girl.
I stood there speechless, my mouth opened but no words came out, just staring at her that i got carried away.
Mirabel: Hey! Aint U gon’ welcome me?
Me: Oh! Sorry,,, i just, just ughh…
Mirabel: Sure U’re Ok?
Me: Yea sure… what about your guards?
Mirabel: Why? Will U kill me??
Mirabel: *Smiles* Just kidding,,, I left them to stay at home
Me: Why do U even have guards?
Mirabel: Are U gonna keep questioning me under the sun or U gon’ let me in?
Me: Sorry about that,,,, please come on in
Mirabel: Thank U *Letting Out A Simple Smile*
I ushered her in…
Me: Welcome, to where I lay my head
Mirabel: Hhmm… nice place
Me: Don’t even think of flattering me
Mirabel: I’m being serious, its clean and well kept
Me: Well its Saturday, I did some cleaning
Mirabel: Sure U did
Me: Please seat… (ushering her to the plastic chair)
Mirabel: Here should be better (seating on the bed) soft and cool
Me: Yea. I got yoghurt in the fridge, Care for some?
Mirabel: That won’t be necessary, I actually came with ah wine and some food,,, fried rice precisely, your favourite.
Hearing that, I got hungry instantly.
Me: How’d U know fried rice is my favourite?
Me: Of course, who else if not Cynthia and Lola
Mirabel: Yea, they said U really love it, thats why I came with plenty of it.
Me: Hhmmm…. If I lay my hands on those friends of yours…
Mirabel: *Laughs* Don’t blame them, blame me. I was the one that sent them
Mirabel: Yea, I’m in your house already, so… what U gon’ do to me?
(Where is she heading to?)
Me: Well, luckily… U came as my visitor
Mirabel: Is that so?
Mirabel: What could U have done if U hadn’t seen me as a visitor?
Me: That’s for me to know… *Smiles*
Mirabel: C’mon give me a clue
Me: Nooo… (In Mercy Johnson’s voice)
Mirabel: Ok… I’m hungry, haven’t eaten today
Me: Me too, haven’t eaten today
I ate Indomie sha, I lied ‘coz I eat fried rice a lot no matter what, so… incase she sees me eating much, she’ll understand that I’m very hungry.
Mirabel: Ok, you’re hungry I’m hungry, food is here… lets eat
Me: Yea, we should.
She brought out the food from a big flask, she brought out the bottle of wine and something else…
Mirabel: Uhmm… I got this from the shop where I bought the wine on my way coming, thought U will like it
Wow! A gold wrist watch!!
Me: Woah… But U didn’t have to…
Mirabel: I know,,, but I couldn’t take my eyes off it when I saw it, I know it will suit U. Common, lets try it
She put it into my wrist
Mirabel: See? I told U, it really look good on U
Me: I really appreciate this, thank U very much.
Mirabel: U’re so welcome
There came a sudden loud silence, our eyes met, I caught her slowly licking her lips.
Me: Ok! Lets eat!!
Mirabel: Yea, lets eat
Me: Lemme get the plates
Mirabel: Ok, do that while I go get the wineglasses from the car
She went and get the glasses while I set the plates. She came back, looked at me somehow, she went to where I keep my utensils she then took a tray, dropped it on the floor. I was just looking at what she was doing. She opened the flask, full the tray with rice ignoring the plates on the floor.
Me: What are U doing?
Mirabel: Let’s eat from this… It will be fun
She filled the glass with wine. I don’t really enjoy eating rice with wine but with hollandia yoghurt.
Mirabel: Pray for the food, before we eat
After praying, we just hold our fork not touching the food, E dey my body to eat this food finish sha, but eh… E get as he be
Mirabel: What U waiting for?
She just smiled and began eating…
Na eating tinz o…
I joined her eating slowly, the food too sweet that I didn’t know when I started eating the food in a rush.
She didn’t say anything, she’ll just look at me and smile.
After some minutes, she stopped eating, she sipped her wine then faced me directly.
What?! Now I’m very much uncomfortable… I start eating slowly but that one no fit make me leave the food sha, no way!
Me: U know,,,, this is delicious! U prepared it?
Me: It really tastes like the one your friends prepared for me the other day.
Me: What’s funny?
Mirabel: Those ones that can’t even boil a simple water, I actually prepared the food that day
Me: Wow! U’re really good
Mirabel: All thanks to my mummy and the cooks
Me: U have cooks at home?
Mirabel: No, uhmmm… I meant cooks, U know like food my mummy prepare.
Me: Ok, I understand. She must be great
Mirabel: U can say that again. Go on keep eating or are U Ok
Ok for where?
Me: No, not yet
I continued eating, getting more comfortable.
I retired after eating almost all the food in the tray before I got full. I took my wine and drank it all at once.
Me: Thanks for the food, I really enjoyed it
Mirabel: Thanks for eating, I really like how U enjoyed it
We both smile
Mirabel: Lemme wash this… (holding the tray)
Me: Noo,,, I will do it (grabbing her hand)
On grabbing her hands, we both stayed still then slowly raising up our heads to face each other. We stared at each for few seconds, our faces getting closer bit by bit… we opened our lips to kiss before.… someone from outside came knocking.
Intruder: Where that ba$tard?!
