Sunday came up so fast with lots of expectations for Lola’s birthday party. I wore a cool fitted suit, my best suit actually with a hat. While Nancy wore a dress Mirabel provided for her.
We arrived the place before 4.pm and the place was wow! full of exotic cars, that was my first time of seeing a Lamborghini car and others. Music was booming the environment, I saw so many good looking and sophisticated persons in attendance. That was when I had a thought of pride that I’m rolling with bigger girls. Well, I didn’t feel intimidated at all because, I got a nice ride and well dressed as well.
I met Mirabel’s guards standing at the frontage of her lodge, I asked them if Mirabel was inside, they replied positive. Some guys and girls were seated in the parlor but Mirabel wasn’t. I greeted them before asking after her and they said she went to the room to get dressed. I went straight to her room and knocked…
Mirabel: Who is it?
Me: Your boyfriend
Mirabel: Come in come in come in
I slowly opened the door and walked in, she was backing me
Mirabel: I’ve been waiting for you, Now tell me, how do i look? Turning around to face me
Me: Woah… you’re a true definition of beauty, a virtue of grace, I’m incredibly graced by your grace, I’m highly favoured beyond imaginations, you have no idea to how happy i am to have you, you’re like a figment of my thoughts but thank God you’re real, thank God for creating you, I’m extremely blessed. Oh my! what am i saying? Come give hug please baby…
We hugged each other for so many minutes, i also caressed her hair emotionally that I didn’t know when a tear dropped off my left eye.
Me: I will always love you Mirabel, I will continue to love you no matter what… The love I have for you is irreplaceable.
Mirabel: I love you so much and you know it, I believe whatever you tell me, I trust the love we have for each other,,, I’m made to understand that, sometimes in life, the best doesn’t come first but mostly comes last. Yes I was born with everything i need, but you stand as the best thing that has ever happen to me. With you in my life, I have everything I want and my love for you is unconditional.
We were still hugging each other before someone opened the door
Cynthia: Oops! sorry for intruding guys, didn’t know uhmmm… excuse me, Mirabel everyone is waiting for you outside, they’re about to start
Mirabel: Ok I’m coming out, just give me a minute. Is Lola out yet?
Cynthia: No, she’s waiting for you
Mirabel: Ok, just a minute please
Cynthia: Alright hurry up. Hi Victor
Me: Hi I just waved at her with a coy smile then she left
Mirabel: Everyone will know today that you’re my boyfriend
Me: I don’t understand
Mirabel: As you know, this is a high class party and everyone you see out there are sons and daughters of dignitaries like Senators, Ministers, Governors, big business men children and all that. So,,, people like us are not expected to come here with any random person, we can only come with our date, friends or spouse
Mirabel: You and I will be together throughout the party, that is after I escort Lola to the Celebrant’s seat then We’ll seat together by her right side. And I will introduce you to anyone I meet as my boyfriend
Me: Its cool, no problem
Me: Yea, sure, even if the your Father gets to know I won’t be bothered
Me: Just kidding
Mirabel: He’s not gonna do anything nasty I’m sure of that
Me: Well, he is your Father, you should trust him,,, He should only know about us when the time is right
Mirabel: Of course, that’s what I’m waiting for. Put this in your mind that I’m taking you to my father in Aso rock two weeks after our final exams
Me: Aso rock?
Mirabel: Yea, why?
Me: But his tenure will expire months before we graduate
Mirabel: So? what happens to second term?
Me: Oh… I forgot
Mirabel: By the way, where is Nancy?
Me: Oh my God!
Mirabel: What is it?
Me: No, nothing, She’s outside… let’s go join them, they’re waiting for you
Mirabel: Yea, let’s go. What about Promise?
Me: I dunno, we haven’t talked today. She didn’t call me
Mirabel: The securities will deny her access if she should come because we only invited her with our mouth as our close friend and not with invitation card and she doesn’t even have a car. Let’s call her quick,,,, where is that my phone
Me: Lemme call her I brought my phone out from my pocket my phone has been switched off all this while and i didn’t know I quickly switched it on
Mirabel: Maybe she’s been trying to call you, who knows? Woah… eleven missed calls from her
She dialed Promise’s number and she picked up at once, then Mirabel put on loud speaker
Mirabel: Hello Promise
Promise: Hi I’ve been calling you but you didn’t pick up and Victor’s line is unreachable
Mirabel: I apologize, I’ve been busy. They refused to allow you come in?
Promise: Yeah at first, but I’m in now,,, thanks to Cynthia. Where are you guys by way?
Mirabel: In my room but we’re coming out now
Promise: Please hurry up, I’m feeling awkward and nervous out here
Mirabel: Just meet us in my lodge
Promise: Ok, on my way
Mirabel: Lets go lets go
Me: After you my darling
We stepped out together, the guys and ladies we met in the parlor all stood up when we showed up in the parlor. She greeted them in a hurry while stepping out and they followed us or they followed her rather,,,, who know me? Lol.
The guards opened the entrance door and there stood Promise, glowing like a star, where did she hid her beauty all this while that i did not see? I was stunned by her beauty but refused to get carried away.
Mirabel: You’re looking good Promise
Promise: Thanks, and you’re looking gorgeous
Mirabel: Thanks,,, come on, let’s go and escort Lola out to her seat, we’re already late. Guys you may go have your seat (Referring to the ones with us) Victor please wait for me here, Promise lets go
They left for Lola/Cynthia’s lodge to escort the celebrant out while I stood in front of her lodge as she told me to wait for her. I was looking around for my sister Nancy, I didn’t know where she was.
Mirabel came out alone some few minutes later and went to grab a mic, she signaled them to pause the music. After which, she welcomed everyone in attendance and also said other things. Gosh! her voice sounded so good on the mic, God help me ‘coz I so much love this girl.
She then announced the arrival of the celebrant, every one stood up clapping their hands while Lola and her escorts came out, my mind became cool when I saw Nancy with them. Mirabel however, handed over the mic to the MC after making a comment that…
“Lemme quickly go get my boyfriend before these beautiful ladies in the house do something nasty”
The guests cheered and applauded to that,,, while she left the stage and walk towards me smiling with confidence.
All eyes on me! I started feeling so nervous that I felt like I was gonna collapse even though I was standing upright.
