The next day, I told momma about my car,,,, that i don’t want another car from Dad. But she wasn’t happy about it. She doesn’t like the idea of a girl spending for a guy,,, She advised me again telling me all sort of things. She said that, she’ll also talk to Mirabel about it, to stop spending on me. She continued saying that, She can use her money to support your home when u get married if possible and not to be spending on me anyhow now. Telling me to wise up and be the man in the relationship and not otherwise. She added that she will be sending me extra money apart from my Dad’s so that i won’t depend on Mirabel. It was then she understands why i don’t call home for money when I’m in school. She made me promise to be man enough like my Father.
I didn’t enjoy her advise at first, but when i later think about it,,, she’s absolutely right.
Later that day, I decided to call my Uncle the Engineer… But he didn’t pick up, he could be busy or something.
I called Promise, we spoke for a while about when we’re resuming because the school has resumed already. She said she will resume next week, i told her i will be leaving home next tomorrow. She then changed her mind to resume in three days time.
I called Mirabel, and the following conversation ensued after the pleasantries…
Me: I shall be leaving home in two days time and u still haven’t told me about the stuff u hid for me
Mirabel: (Laughs) Did u even try to find it at all?
Me: Well, i did tried
Mirabel: I doubt if u put in your best to find it,,, I know u. Check inside your old school bag u hung on the wall
Me: U came to my room?
Mirabel: Yep, Nancy gave me a tour
Me: So, she knew about the stuff?
Mirabel: Yep but not the content
Me: Okay, i will check it out after the call, So when are u going to school?
Mirabel: You’re going next tomorrow right?
Me: Yep if nothing comes up
Mirabel: Okay, see u then
Me: Next tomorrow?
Me: Great, i miss u so much
Mirabel: I miss u too sweetie
After a little more chat, we ended the call. I went straight to my old school bag to fish out the stuff. I saw a parcel, i brought it out and sat on my bed to rip the wraps open …
I picked it up.
Me: Hello Sir
Uncle: How are u? I saw your missed call
Me: I’m fine sir,,, I just called to hear from u
Uncle: Okay, I was busy supervising a building site. So how’s everything, studies and all?
Me; All fine sir, but I’m at home still on break
Uncle: Okay, it’s alright. Call me when u get back to school
Me: Okay, bye sir
Uncle: Okay, greet Naomi for me
That’s what he calls Nancy, saying he don’t like the name ‘Nancy’
Me: I will sir and greet Jonas and Justina for me
Uncle: They’ll hear,,,,, take care ko
Me: Yes sir
I ripped off the wraps, it was an iPad and a 4G SMILE wireless modem. Then i saw a piece of note that read….
“The small device is a 4G wireless modem containing 10gigabybe of data that u can be using without subscribing with your phone anymore. It will be renewed every month but u shouldn’t worry about the subscription, it’s in place to be renewed automatically and u will be getting 10gigabyte of data every month. The wireless password is and please share with Nancy, it can cover the whole house. It’s charger is in there, U charge it when the battery runs out.
The iPad is yours baby, go to the video folder and see something.
Bye for now my love”
Woah! Unlimited data for me,,,, enough internet activities for me. My happiness faded a little when i remembered what Momma told me.
I switched on the iPad, and went straight to the video folder, there was only one video in it. I opened it and saw that it was the video tape of us kissing on campus. I was like what?!
I quickly placed a call on her and she picked up almost immediately
Me: Hello Mirabel
Mirabel: Hi sweetheart, I’ve been expecting your call
Mirabel: Not really, I believe U’ve seen the package?
Me: Yeah,,, Thanks sweetheart, i appreciate it big time but,,,, what’s the video for?
Mirabel: U don’t like it?
Me: No as in, I thought u and your cousin got rid of it all?
Mirabel: Yea, It’s kinda romantic so i kept the last copy for myself and u, but it seems u don’t like it
Me: Not like that babe,,, its just that, u and your cous did a lot to get it off the internet and individual’s devices, so what if it get leak again?
Mirabel: Who is going to leak it? Me or u?
Me: Babe, U should understand that anything can happen,,, it’s truly romantic, i know, and it can be a good memory of us being together but anything can happen dear
Mirabel: What can happen?
Me: If anyone apart from u and i get to know about it, then it’s out
Mirabel: How can u be so sure?
Me: I watch a lot of movies babe
Mirabel: So, U are telling me that, Lola and Cynthia can’t be trusted?
Me: What? They know about it?
Mirabel: Sure, it was even their idea to keep it and share to u as well
Me: Tell me, who specifically brought the idea?
Mirabel: Lola,,, why?
