Hi newbie! Click that link above there titled MENU so as to get first hand sizzling romance- Mirror. 😉 DONT MISS OUT. ❤ Love takes out the sting of recession even if for a while. Snuggle up!
I swat the mosquito from my arm and open my eyes. My phone is vibrating in my pocket. I adjust to fish it out and glance at it. Three messages from Tony.
8:03 pm – I’m really sorry, Uzoduwa. I love you and I am trying to be the person you deserve. I promise I wont ever hit you again, please call me when you get this. your phone is turned off.
9:17pm- Please can you at least talk to me? I’m going crazy! Your phone is still off or maybe you are avoiding me? Please call me
10:12am – Uwa, I’m really sorry, please call me We can work this out together. I promise. Just pick up.
I shove my phone back into my pocket and gently ease out of bed so as not to wake Mel who is snoring softly and stirring in her sleep.
I raid the kitchen as I intend to make up for three days. I’m half way through my meal when I hear this hesitant small knock. Almost as if the person has not decided whether to come in or not. I decide to ignore it and continue my food but it comes again, more firmly this time. I sigh as I stand up and peep out the window. Unbelievable. The last person I expected. I open the door and he smiles at me waving his phone in my face as I feel my phone vibrate against my hip bone.
May I come in?
I smile and tilt my head inwards indicating he should. The guy may be interrupting my meal but he saved my life.
I wave for him to follow me as I go back to my meal. We are sitting accross each other as I resume eating.
Just wanted to check on you. What happened with your face this morning? It wasn’t there last night.
None of your business.
I see his face register hurt and I feel a twinge of guilt.
I thought we were friends? In fact if we considered the facts, I think we are almost an old married couple.
I raise my eyebrow.
Do you want me to elaborate?
I shake my head no and resume eating. He watches me for a while till my phone lights up and starts vibrating on the table beside my plate. He glances at it and I do too. It’s Tony. I disconnect and look up to see he is frowning ever so slightly. He raises his eyes to look at me and I can see they are smoldering. I shift uncomfortably and resume eating.
I think I will just be on my way. I just wanted to check up on you.
He nods and stands up. When we are at the door, he hesitates for a minute and then he turns to me and moves in for a kiss. I feel paralysed as I stand still and let him take complete control of my lips and tongue. What am I doing?? I put my palms in his chest to push him away but get distracted by its firmness. My hands trail downwards instead and I pull him closer. I revel in his warmth and the expert way his mouth is engaging mine. Just the right amount of pressure. Sigh. This is wrong though. This is really wrong. This time I succeed in pulling my mouth off his and pushing him away. I see him smirk just before I shut the door in his face. I peep inconspicuously at him and see he stares at the door for some seconds before walking silently away.
I go back to my food but my stomach is too filled with butterflies to accommodate anymore food. I carry the plate and drop it on the sink after disposing of the left-over. I turn and lean against the sink with my back, my hands grabbing its edge tightly on both sides. I lift my left hand to my lips as I remember. I don’t need this. My phone vibrates against my hip.
You couldn’t even offer me food. The only function my mouth serves. 😉
Oh no, Romeo. It’s not even close. I wonder briefly what other things his mouth would do. Where it could go… Very briefly.
I don’t need this.
“I’m going to have Ken arrested.” I say to Mel as soon as she opens her eyes the next morning. It’s a bright day. I breathe in deeply and feel the harmattan in my nostrils. Later, I go to the nearest police station to make a statement after which three officers are deployed for me. I take them to his work place and watch as they handcuff him and take him away.
