whimsical wedding dresses


After sleeping angrily the previous night,
a knock on my door woke me up which
was time for our morning prayers. We
prayed for so many things including safe
arrival of our Dad and safe departure of
Mirabel among others. We did our
morning chores, bath then had breakfast.
Mirabel’s bodyguards came and took her
away, after saying her goodbyes to all of
us and also promised to come around
some other time.
I thought Nancy would be sad about
Mirabel’s departure, but she seems to be
happy which got me wondering. School
resumes in one week time, But I would be
leaving in two or more weeks. After much
thought, I decided to go inside only to
see Momma and Nancy happy over what
they were checking out.
Me: What’s all this?
Nancy: Mirabel got all these for me and
for Mummy
I saw lot’s of dresses, bags, shoes and
jewelleries and an iPhone and an iPad.
My eyes burst open.
Me: When?!
**No response**
I saw Momma admiring the wrappers
Mirabel got her and Nancy using the
iPhone with her teeths out.
Me: Is it iPhone 6?
Nancy: Yes bro,,, she’s so awesome! this
is what i’ve been dreaming to have
Me: So Mummy got the ipad?
Nancy: Yes
Me: Wait, how did she say it?
Nancy: How do u mean?
Me: As in,,, she didn’t mention me?
Nancy: No, why? she didn’t leave
anything for u?
Me: Why would she leave anything for
me, am i not the one who should be
taking care of her? I only wanted to know
if she mentioned my name
Momma: Why?
Me: Huh? No, Nothing precisely
Momma: Hope u don’t expect goodies
from her?
Me: No I don’t,,, haba Mummy
Momma: See, I’m telling u today, don’t
ask for anything from that girl. By the
Grace and Mercy of God, your Father and
I are here to provide for u because it’s
our responsibility Okay?
Me: I know Mummy
Mummy: No let me talk,,, I have seen in
the movies how boys use rich girls to get
what they want and left them heart-
broken, U better behave yourself. I hope
u will never forget what happened to u
when u toiled with the daughter of a
soldier not to mention when u mess up
with the daughter of the Commander In-
Chief of the Armed forces
Me: I haven’t forgotten, thanks for always
reminding me (Pissed)
Momma: Yes, if by reminding u every
now and then will make u behave
yourself,,, I will never stop updating it
into your brain
Me: But Mummy trust the son u raised na
Nancy: (Laughs)
Me: And what’s funny to u?
Nancy: Uhmmm Mummy, we should be
going to the shop now oh…
Momma: Yes o my daughter,,, take these
things inside let’s go
Hhmmmmm….. I smell conspiracy.
**Later that day**
Dad arrived home, Momma had to close
early from the shop to welcome her
husband. He brought lots of goodies,,,
that’s what i love about him. Before
Momma and Nancy came, we had a little
Boss: So you’re ok now?
(Yea that’s what i call him)
Me: Yes sir
Boss: Good,,, go and get me water from
the Cway
Me: Ok sir.
I rushed to the Cway, got the water,
return back to him and gave him the
water. After drinking, i collected the cup
and took it back to it’s position. He stood whimsical wedding dresses
up, probably going to his room. I heard
the car horning at the gate, I ran to open
it for Momma for to come in. She
entertained her husband before we left
for Church by 7pm.
We returned back from the mid-week
service as we normally do every
wednesday, everyone went straight to
their rooms to drop their Bibles and also
change dresses. Lest i forget, Mirabel
called earlier and the following
conversation ensued…
Me: sweetheart
Mirabel: Hi dear, I’m home now
Me: At the villa?
Mirabel: Yes of course
Hhmmmm Presidential villa don turn
home abi?
Me: Ok good, how was the little trip?
Mirabel: It was fine, except for the spoilt
road at some parts of the road
Me: Maybe your dad hasn’t come to that
part yet
Mirabel: I dunno what the FCT Minister is
even doing in that office, imagine
Me: Don’t mind him (Not enjoying the
topic) So how is my heart doing?
Mirabel: Very well but kinda not feeling
too happy, Dad and Mom aren’t home.
They both went different places, Dad
went to Canada for a meeting or so and
Mom went to Uganda for African’s First
Ladies Conference, I’m feeling so lonely.
Me: Well, I’m not surprised for the
whereabouts of your parents, having a
whole Country on their shoulders is not
an easy task
Mirabel: I know… Just can’t wait for
school to resume lemme get away from
here and be with who will there for me at
all times
Me: Really?
Mirabel: Yes ofcourse
Me: (smiling) And who is this person?
Mirabel: Who else? If not you my love
Me: Me too can’t wait to get u under my
arms again
Mirabel: Uhmmm…. that reminds me,
when will u be coming to the Villa?
Me: I’m not sure yet, But until my Dad
travels because Mum won’t be a problem
Mirabel: Okay, please u will need to bring
Nancy along
Me: What? why??
Mirabel: She wants to come here and i
promised her that she’ll come along with
u whenever you’re coming.
Me: But u never told me about this
Mirabel: I know… please baby do this for
me pleaseeeee…
Me: Yea but if only we’d have some
privacy, u know what i mean
Mirabel: What privacy? don’t tell me
you’re thinking of having s-x with me
Me: What? No! ofcourse not, come on,,, i
mean, why would i even think of doing
such? But…..
Mirabel: What?
Me: Never mind, it’s nothing
Mirabel: What is it? Tell me
Me: It’s nothing really
Mirabel: Alright so what’s up?
Me: Just missing u very much
Mirabel: Missing u too, please try to
inform me on when u will be coming ok?
Me: Sure
Mirabel: And it should be very soon
Me: I will try, it solely depends on my
Mirabel: Okay,,, U said he’s a chartered
accountant right?
Me: Yea
Mirabel: It’s a nice profession
Me: Yea
Mirabel: U know what? leave your Dad to
me, I just thought of something,,,, so
don’t worry, your Dad won’t be a
problem,,, I shall handle it
Well, base on how i watch Hollywood
movies, if someone says a person won’t
be a problem, the next thing that follows
is some kind of a problem or even death.
I hope that’s not the case here. Of course
Me: What do u mean by my Dad won’t be
a problem?
Mirabel: Don’t u worry sweety, I will start
working on it right away
Me: Okay,,, hope its for good?
Mirabel: It could even be for better if not
the best, trust me dear
Me: That’s my baby,,, **Car horns** Got
to go babe, I think my Dad is back
Mirabel: Okay,,,, Love u… please text me
his official mail and don’t forget
Me: Alright i will that, Love more
**Hangs up**
***During Dinner***
Dad: Who owns the phone you’re holding
I raised my head up and saw her using
the new iPhone Mirabel got for her.
