Now Monday was a Valentine’s Day. Bimbo is on leave and I have also taken a casual leave from work to travel home and sort things out on my wedding plans. So I woke up a little late on that Monday morning. I had plans earlier to pick the documents and travel back that Monday morning. But what I met on ground again kept me wondering if I will be able to follow my original plans of going back home on Monday morning.
By the time I came out of my room I met Bimbo at the kitchen cooking. We exchanged greetings, although she was not all that happy, with her looks I can notice that. She continued slicing her plantain after greeting me. Then I said: “Bimbo I just came back to pick some of the documents I will need to submit at the registry in preparation for the registry wedding. But I will love to have a little time to discuss with you this morning before I return home this morning”
I have not finished expressing my self when she said “sorry! that may not be possible, as you can see that today is Valentine’s day, I have a date with my sweetheart” then I said “OK! may be I will wait till tomorrow before I go back to Ilesa, so I can have chance to discuss with you.” But she didn’t say anything after that. I left her in the kitchen cooking.
By the time I got back to the room, I noticed that bro Yemi has been calling. I met the notification of his missed calls on my phone. Not only that, I noticed he has dropped a message probably because he didn’t get through to me.
He explained in the message that he missed my calls but was out of air time to call back then. He promised to call at our place to check me and drop the documents after work. I had left a message for him too last night explaining my mission back to Ibadan because I will need some documents from him too.
Bro Yemi is a doctor too, but he works at a private hospital unlike Bimbo and Dr Lawrence. I guess Bimbo love to marry a doctor just because she is envying my relationship.
I was not satisfied with Brother Yemi’s arrangement at all. I needed time with Bimbo in the evening after her Valentine’s outing. So I decided to check him up at work against his proposal.
I was about finishing dressing up after I took my bath, that I heard the door bell. So early?? Who was an early visitor? On getting to the living room, I saw Bimbo flying out of the living room’s door to check who was at the gate I guessed. I went back to my room to complete my dressing.
Our visitor was Dr Lawrence dressed in a black suit, red shirt and a black bow tie to match. Really he was looking so smaching. When I met him sitting comfortably on one of the sofa in the living room, he stood up, stretched his hand to shake me while greeting me. We exchanged greetings.
I dashed to the kitchen to get some rice and plantain with some pieces of chicken I met fried. I was wondering how my friend has suddenly changed to an early waker to prepare food. This is miracoulous because Bimbo will never cook unless I’m sick. To worsen the case, she has never prepared breakfast in that house before. I’m her cook! If I can’t fix breakfast, then we both are going to work without food on that day for sure.
But now Dr Lawrence has changed my wonderful friend and sister surprisingly. I didn’t notice a well set table for two, until I brought my food to the dinning table. I got the message immediately. She has been expecting Dr Lawrence for breakfast. I gulped down my food very fast, preparing to give them space, but I was about to finish eating when my darling friend came out from her room with a very beautiful red dinner gown.
I know Bimbo is very beautiful but I have never seen her in this manner before. She was so lovely in this dress. I can’t explain the romantic scene I saw that day. In her pencil-heel black shoe, she walked past me to the sitting room inviting Dr Lawrence to come to the table for breakfast. He stood up, pulled her to himself and gave her a deep kiss right in front of me. This one is too much for me!!
I can’t imagine that Bimbo can change in a little frame of time. Everything Bimbo has condemned I saw her approving. I packed my dishes to the kitchen. I excused my self and set out to see Bro Yemi at work. Although it is too early for him to expect a visitor I thought as I was entering the hospital compound.
I had not entered the passage leading to his office when I met a nurse that told me that he was not on duty. She said that he was on night duty. I became curious and my heart was beating so fast. But why can’t he check me at home in the morning?
The couple love scene I left at home made me so worried. Knowing fully well that the day was a valentine’s day. Could he be up to something too? Considering all his recent behaviours.
I can’t remember if I was shaking, but I remembered that immediately I left the hospital premises, I jumped on a bike to take me straight away to his flat. The house has no compound, so I went straight to his door, pressed the door bell.
I almost fainted when a lady unknown to me came to answer the door. She was in a red bump short and a white sleeveless top. I felt like pulling her with her very long golden brown weave-on on her head, but I refrained, and said to her “good morning, please I’m asking for bro Yemi” she stood there blocking the door with her slim body and shouted
“Yemi we have a visitor”
To be continued in the evening….
