They placed a small table across my waist and put the food on top. A tumbler was filled with yoghurt.

I didn’t say anything, she left.
Mirabel: What happened to u sweetheart?
Me: U said your Dad saw the video, do u know what that means?

Me: U answered yeah when i asked u
Mirabel: Oh (laughs) I said where not yea, Like where would he have seen it
Me: U mean he hasn’t seen it?
Me: But news as such should’ve gotten to him
Mirabel: Not if something has been done
Me: How do u mean?
Mirabel: Don’t worry, eat first we’d talk about that later. Go on, eat
I start pretending like i’m not interested in the food. Well its like that for sick people, buh am i really sick? I’m just weak. I still couldn’t help but pretend.
Mirabel: Eat dear, don’t u want to get better? Its your favourite… oya eat for me, for my sake please… see yoghurt, u can drink as much as u like,,, come on start eating already
My mind sweet me eh….. i dip the spoon into the rice, fetched out small of it and ate
Mirabel: There u go, try it again or should i feed u?
I took my yoghurt and sipped it like i was drinking a bitter herbal medicine. Mirabel supported my hand to make it flow more into my mouth, i tried to decline but she persisted and i really enjoyed it,,, just pretence. After finishing it, i looked like a baby that was just fed.
Mirabel: Excuse me lemme use the rest room
I nodded in agreement. As soon as she closed the door behind her, i grabbed the hollandia and start sucking it from its container.
The door just burst open
I freezed immediately with my eyes wide opened facing her speechlessly. She caught me!!
Mirabel: I knew it! That nothing can make u avoid hollandia yoghurt no matter what.
I didn’t know what to say or do, i slowly dropped the yoghurt
Mirabel: Hhmmm… do u have anything to say?
Mirabel: Good! U know what to do now
So jeje i started eating my rice, the chicken was so many. I ate and drank as much as i could before i retired. Mirabel gave me the medicines which i took.
Mirabel: How do u feel now?
Me: Hhmmm… forming sick
Mirabel: Talk jare!!
The shout shocked me. Seems like Mirabel don’t take nonsense oh…
Me: I feel much better now, thanks dear (I humbled myself)
Mirabel: Did u enjoyed the meal?
Me: Yes it was good, uhmm… why were u smiling when u were putting the food on the plate for me?
Mirabel: laughs I saw how u were swallowing your saliva on seeing it
Me: No i didn’t
Mirabel: Yes u did, U didn’t ke. Tell that to the gods
The Doctor and a Nurse walks in
Doctor: How u feeling now Victor?
Me: Better sir
Doctor: Okay, lemme see…
He examined me.
Doctor: Ok good
He collected a paper from the nurse and wrote down some things.
Mirabel: How is he Doctor?
Doctor: He is okay now, I will discharged him immediately the bills get settled. Where is his mother?
Mirabel: She’s not around buh i can take care of it
Doctor: Ok lets go

Mirabel: U pretended not wanting to eat and drink ‘coz you’re ‘sick’, so,,, why don’t u wait till u get better before u get ‘this’ giving me a sharp kiss
Me: But i’m fine now that’s why i’m being discharged
Mirabel: I don’t care
Me: Come on
Mirabel: No no no no
Mirabel: That’s what u get for pretending,,, I don’t like pretence, not even from u. So beat it
Me: Arrghh!! I fell back on to the bed and unintentionally hit my head against the steel frame of the bed
Mirabel: Oh my god! What happened?
I was holding my head in pain
Mirabel: Sorry dear, i’m coming lemme call the Doctor
Me: I don’t need the Doctor
Mirabel: Then what do u want me to do? U are in pain

She kissed me for like 3 seconds
Mirabel: Alright that’s enough
Me: No, more more more… my head oh… please more
She kissed me again, this time i grabbed her so she won’t escape, she tried to get off but i held her tight until she gave in and responded, we then kissed passionately. We continued until the door burst open bringing in my momma.
We disengaged immediately.
