The look on her face when she was handing
over the phone to me was so unusual; i
collected the phone from her thinking I got a
night call or something.
Me: What’s up dear?
Mirabel: Victor where have you been?
Me: What’s wrong that you even called me by
Mirabel: I’ve been up for some minutes and I
didn’t see you here or in the toilet. Then a
message popped into your phone from
Promise telling you to try and sleep
immediately you get into the room, I scrolled
up out of curiosity and found those chats you
both had, what explanation can you give me
Victor? I trusted both of you with all my
Me: Honey what are you saying? That’s
nothing I promise
Me: Come on dear, you have to calm down,
what is the thing you saw that’s making you
to react this way? It was just a harmless
Mirabel: Stop making a fool out of me, what
did she mean by nobody can beat the spot
you have in her heart? And you also
confessed that she also have a spot in your
heart, what kind of spot is that? You went to
meet up with her because I was sleeping.
Victor why did you do this to me? Why? I
gave you my everything
Me: Mirabel you have to calm down and
allow me to talk
Mirabel: Of course I’ll let you talk, go on and
give me another definition of the chats and
the meeting you both had
Me: Please sit down
Mirabel: I’m fine standing
Me: Mirabel you have to sit down so we can
talk and reach an understanding, this is not
how a couple can settle their
Mirabel: sits down
Me: (I sat down on the bed too) you have to
trust me; I cannot do anything like that. She
was only thanking me as a friend and how
I’ve been there for her, that no one can
replace me in doing all that. Sweetheart
please don’t misinterpret it. You know too
well that I can’t do something like that and
neither can Promise do such thing
Mirabel: Yes I trust you both, but that chat is
like that of those having an affair
Me: It’s nothing dear
Mirabel: Like when you said you’re coming
and she asked what about me and you told
her that I’m sleeping before you went to meet
up with her… what did you even go to her for
by this of the night when everyone is
Me: She couldn’t sleep just as you see in the
message, and I thought it was about Fred, so
I went to her in the living room to cheer her
Mirabel: It’s just too suspicious Ok? Please I
don’t like something this. I have to say your
closeness with her should be redefined so I
won’t be suspecting anything please… I have
never been suspicious of you for anything; I
always believe whatever you say until I saw
those disturbing messages that got me so
Me: You have nothing to worry about dear
Mirabel: No let’s make some things clear, I’m
here to be your friend and companion and
everything you need, so please… your
friendship can continue but not this close
Me: Alright, no problem
Mirabel: I will let this go, but I’m begging you
now, don’t cheat on me and never give me
any reason to doubt you
Me: Ok my princess
Mirabel: I am very serious
Me: Relax na, it’s me oh… (Going for my
Mirabel: You that got me very worried this
night abi morning
I threw my phone on bed and drew her closer
to me by holding waist
Me: Sorry for the misconception… I hope I
didn’t lose any percentage of your trust for
Mirabel: You lost 80% of it
Mirabel: Kidding buh you almost lost it
Me: That’s never going to happen; I rather
gain more of your trust than lose a single
percentage of it
Mirabel: Okay… now can you let go of my
waist so I can sleep?
Me: If not until you smile, I won’t
Mirabel: She let out a fake smile Can I
I let go of her, then she climb the bed facing
the other side. I knew we were not all cool
yet, so I thought of doing something about it.
I joined her on the bed and placed my hand
around her waist
Mirabel: What now?
Me: I can see you’re still mad at me, I will
just tell you what I wanted to tell you later in
the day withdrawing myself from her
Mirabel: What is it?
Me: Don’t worry… I’ll just tell you later
Mirabel: No I want to hear it now
Me: Ok, if you really want to hear it, come
rest your head on my shoulder
Me: Come na… it’s about our wedding oh…
When she hear that one, nobody told her
before she brought herself closer to me.
Mirabel: Ok what is it?
Me: Uhmmmm… I think we should start taking
our pre-wedding pictures from now
Mirabel: What for?
Me: You don’t like it?
Mirabel: No, we don’t need it
Mirabel: It’s just not needed, what are we
going to do with it? To post on social media
and all, I don’t like it
Me: I thought it’d be fun
Mirabel: You know what?
Mirabel: Instead of this pre-wedding thing,
let’s just have all the fun together without the
world knowing about it until the day we’ll get
Mirabel: And stop holding my waist anyhow
anytime you want, because it’s not yours yet.
Me: Laughs No problem, I’d be the proud
owner come next month
Mirabel: Until then, you’re strictly restricted
Me: It’s okay… I’ve heard you, we need to
I took my pillow and positioned myself on the
floor to sleep
Mirabel: What are you doing?
Me: Well… so you won’t rest on my chest
later while I’m asleep, as it’s not yet yours to
lay on whenever you feel like
Mirabel: Oh really?
Me: Goodnight, love you…
I woke up the following morning and saw
Mirabel resting comfortably on my chest
while on the floor; I just smiled and placed
my hand around her waist.
Later that morning when Nancy has gone to
school, and Promise to her computer institute
leaving Mirabel and I in the house while
Frank and Jummy were also around.
Mirabel was in the kitchen preparing lunch
while I was in the room working in my
website with hollandia yoghurt by my side,
sipping it little by little until Mirabel suddenly
stormed into the room looking infuriated.
Mirabel: Victor what’s the meaning of this
Me: Surprised and bemused what is it?
Mirabel: I saw this diary somewhere in the
kitchen which is supposed to be for Promise;
take and look what I found inside…
