Have she been pretending all this while, God u have to save me, my mind flashed back to nurse titi it been a while I saw her, I dont even have a phone talk less of having her number, how do I get to her,or maybe she is busy, I find it hard to sleep that night,I could not sleep but I had to force myself to………
I woke up very early has possible to avoid another problem, it was a Sunday morning, I knew Aunty Stella is not the church type,ever since have gotten to her house we have not gone to church, and I felt I need to go to church that Sunday even though I don’t know which church to go cus an not familiar with the area well enough, but I sha know I will see someone to direct me.I did all the house chores as quick as possible, cooked breakfast,bath the children and feed them, it was about 7:30 but aunty Stella was still sleeping. I decided not to wake her,I made up my mind that when am about leaving I will inform her,I rushed to my room, took my bath,clean my body and put on one of my best cloth long body hugg black gown, thank God she did little shopping for me before she changed to a lion I thought in my mind, I packed my hair neatly tied a scarf round my hair and looked at the mirror, I knew within myself that am what they should call epitome of beauty, I don’t use makeup,I don’t even like it,it makes me uncomfortable, I cleaned my leather sandal, put it own,I didn’t have a Bible, I just picked up my small purse and ran to the sitting room on getting there I met aunty Stella, oops she is already awake,good timing I said to myself, aunty Stella was looking gorgeous that morning, it Seems she is expecting someone,probably one of those her sex partner,she wore a bum short, and a Short crop top,she packed her ponytail neatly,I must be sincere with u she is d--n pretty……..
