Today’s gon’ be great! Well i hope it
does. Wait i don’t understand, what is
she to me? Are we friends already??
Where is this heading to??? Hhmmm…
I was so excited that moment, why i
was so excited? I’m gon’ drive a Range
Rover Sport baaby!
I rushed out immediately to test it… i
got there, checked under the tire and
got the keys, entered the car then start
it. Its been a while since i drive so… i
should be careful. I moved the car
believe me it was awesome! what ah
ride!! Wait… Am i going for a date or
I got back in, no need for me to
prepare anything to eat, i’d just have a
yoghurt. Exam is around the corner, i
need to go home and get more money
‘coz i guess i’d spend alot today.
*Phone rings* | *Caller Lola*
Me: Hi Lola
Lola: Victor, whats up with u?
Me: I’m fine
Lola: No, not that. Why Haven’t we
heard from u?
Me: Oh… i’ve been busy really
Lola: Is that so?
Me: Yea
Lola: U know… why don’t u come
around so we’d hangout
Me: Ermmm…
Lola: What?
Me: I’m kinda going out to see a friend
Lola: By that, u mean Mirabel?
Me: What are U talking about?
Lola: Never mind, its nothing…
Me: But u were tr…
Lola: (Interrupted) Gat to go, see ya
Me: Lola wait…
*Hangs up*
Ok now i’m totally confused, Whats
going on? How the hell did she know??
I hope I hope its… well we’ll see.
I took my bath, did the necessaries and
got myself ready wearing one of my
nicest clothe. I looked myself in the
mirror, damΠ! I look good also smelling
nice while its not even a date or like
going out with my girlfriend hmmm…
I took a bottle of yoghurt, got out,
locked my door then went to the side of
the car, no one was there to give me
some shots so i took some selfies. I
ignited the car, off i left for the bank to
withdraw some money before going to
Mirabel’s place.
On the road listening to some cool
vibes, smooth driving chai! Big boy
I got to the gate of their building and
called Mirabel, after a few minutes the
gate open. Who opened it? Her two
bodyguards of course. I guess i forgot
their names already. I saw how the
male one was looking at me, not a
good way though it was like when an
enemy is looking at his opponent. I no
send ‘am jare, no be just guard him be?
See me driving rangey abegi!
They directed me to Mirabel’s place,
omoh… no wonder its first class. The
surrounding was awesome, well
maintained, clean, gardens, the
swimming pool was awesome. Can’t
mention everything jare… the lady
guard ushered me in while the male
one was behind me looking like
something i dont know infact i don’t
like him.
The lady guard told me that Mirabel is
inside, that she’d be with me shortly.
She told me to seat but didn’t, i chose to
look around her beautiful home. Who is
her father or mother by way that got
her all these as a student. Looking at
the pictures on the wall, there i saw a
portrait of our newly elected President
and its not even his official picture. I
saw a portrait which seems to be her
family picture, i was about to go closer
to get a proper view before she called
me from behind.
Mirabel: Victor…?
I slowly turned around and saw her the
way i’ve never done before. Mehn… she
looked beautiful, she stuns in the dress
she wore. I didn’t know when my
mouth open and said something
Me: U look gorgeous
Mirabel: Thanks dear
But i’m glad i did…
Me: U got a nice place here
Mirabel: Thanks
Me: So ermmm… Are u ready?
Mirabel: Yea, U’re right on time
Me: Hhmm… shall we?
Mirabel: *Smiles* Sure
She told her bodyguards to stay back
but the male one tried to object. She
shouted at him which shut his mouth. I
really dunno whats wrong with that
guy, when i burst him face eh… he go
We got to the car, i opened the door for
her, she thanked me.
Mirabel: So… where are u taking me to?
Me: Where would u like?
Mirabel: Remember u are the one that’s
taking me out
Me: Yea
Mirabel: Then take me out
Me: Hhmm… Yes ma
We gisted a lot before getting to our
destination, like the car being
borrowed to be returned tomorrow or
next. I got out from the car and she is
still in. I just laughed and shake my
head before opening the door for her.
On stepping down, she smiled while
thanking me.
We got into the place i took her, it was
a nice place which i’ve never been
before. I only saw it while passing by
and wish to there someday. Well…
today is the day, Thank God.
I drew the chair for her to seat, i guess
i’ve watched too many romantic movies
to be acting this romantic.
An attendant came over to us and
handed us the menu to select.
She ordered fried rice and chicken with
red wine. I love fried rice, so i ordered
We were served the meal, we started
eating and talking at the same time.
One talk led to another then we arrived
at this….
Mirabel: I actually know what
happened that day between U, Lola
and Cynthia.
Me: I dunno what u’re talking about
Mirabel: U don’t need to pretend, they
told me everything. The food, their sexy
acts to seduce u, your gentle and
coolness, the call?
Me: What?
Mirabel: And I’m 100% sure that the call
was fake. U made that up just to run
away from them…
Me: So they are your friends?
Mirabel: My best friends
Me: I dunno what to say
Mirabel: U don’t have to say anything,
actually i want to confess
Me: What?
Mirabel: I just hope u wont get mad if i
should tell u this
Me: Well i will if u don’t tell me
Mirabel: Ok, i actually… ermmm… i’m the
brain behind all what happen between
U and the girls
Me: Huh?
Mirabel: I sent them to u the first time u
met them to get your number and
address. Everything that follows was
planned and I’m really sorry
Me: But why did u do that?
Mirabel: Because… i found myself liking
u already. I tested you with my friends
to know how gentle you are ‘coz i don’t
want to be with a bad guy and go
through another heartbreak… please
understand me Victor
Me: Woah… just wow! I never saw this
Mirabel: I know its hard to believe but
its true and as it is right now… i trust u.
Me: I’m sooo lost of words right now
like seriously
Mirabel: I’m in love with you Victor…
*My eyes opened wide*
We alighted from the car in front of her
apartment, i walked her to the door
then i held her hand which she faced
me eyes to eyes. She then put her both
hands round my neck while i placed my
hands on her waist… our heads drew
nearer, our eyes closed, slowly our lips
locate the other..…………
