I woke up with a smile on my face. I look around me and saw my lovely Anita in a night gown kneeling beside the bed and was praying.
Anita: hmmm, why the smile on your beautiful face. can I know the secret?
she asked with a lovely smile.
Me: hahaha. first, I am not beautiful and secondly, is that the new way of saying good morning to your future husband?
i asked with a little frown on my face.
Anita: OK oga future husband. you are handsome and secondly, good morning sir.
Me: morning my love, how’s your night.
Anita: splendid and yours?
Me: cool. so what was that your question again?
Anita: what is the reason behind your smile?
Me: duh, what is today?
Anita: October first soo?
Me: so no work.
Anita: oh yea i totally forgot. so breakfast is on you.
Anita: you better head to the kitchen and start cooking because I am really hungry.
she said and stood up heading to the bathroom.
chaii, see big ynash na.
I went to the kitchen, opened the fridge and brought out four eggs. took some onions and pepper and in no time, I was frying the egg.
Anita: *shouted from the bathroom* honey your phone is ringing.
I rushed to our room, pick up my phone and saw mama T calling me. it was like I was forced but I later picked the call.
Me: hello good morning ma.
mama T: morning my dear idris. how’s your night?
Me: cool and yours?
mama T: splendid. today is octuber first and there is no work. so I am thinking if we spend today in my house. you know what’s gonna happen next.
mama T: stop that, you cant say no. meet me in my house by twelve. don’t be late oo.
me: yes ma
I said and she cut the call.
Anita: who was that?
she asked steeping out of the bathroom.
me: my boss and she told me to rush down to the office by twelve to collect some important file.
Anita: hmmm this your work na wow oo. what’s that smell.
Me; iyee my egg.
I rushed out while she laughed.
I served breakfast. bread, tea and eggs. when we were through eating, she cleared the plates while I headed to the bathroom to wash up when my phone rang.
I rushed to pick it thinking it was mama T but was shocked when I saw..
