Story: The Midnight Epic… Part 29

Now that was the part, where I was suppose
to get angry, upset, Pissed and experience all
other feelings of Aggression and depression.
But I began laughing, I owed God a
thanksgiving, for not allowing a relapse in my
reasoning, strong enough to have stopped me
from using ¢ondom.
I personally don’t know if she was seeing all
those men, to get her ‘real man’ or to gratify
her ambitions, either way, considering the
assets lying around, I can say it was paying
I took a bike home, three days later I decided
to Check out my Mum’s restaurant, I had not
Visited the place since I returned from school.
I walked into the restaurant, I liked what I saw,
it was a standard one.
I sat in one of the empty seats, just resting
and enjoying the overview.
A waitress walked up to me, “Good evening sir,
what do you have need of?”
I looked at her from head to toe and smiled at
her, she tried to hide a smile too.
Just ice cream please, I replied.
She came back a few minutes later with a can
of ice cream.
“Thank you very much” I said
She was about to leave
“Excuse me, what’s your name please” i asked
“Sir?” she said
“Daniela, my name is Daniela”
“Nice name, Daniela”
I brought out my wallet and paid for the ice
“Is my mum closeby?”
“Your mum?” she asked, looking confused.
“Yeah, the owner of this Restaurant, Miss
Her eyes widened, as she stared in unbelief.
“She’s your mum?”
“Yeah! I replied.
She quickly handed the money to me.
I laughed
“Don’t embarrass me please” I said.
She insisted I kept the money.
I refused
“Alright Daniela, let’s do this” I said,
this time around looking serious, “i just met
you today, and I think I like you already, so
let’s assume, the money is from me to you”
She was about to say something, when I
interrupted her.
“Can I see my Mum now?” I asked with a Grin.
She kept quiet for a moment,
“She’s in the Kitchen” she said, stammering a
I walked into the kitchen.
“The best mum in the world, the indispensable
paragon of beauty, the immutable woman of
great Virtues, The queen of my heart.”
I said, leaning by the door.
She wasn’t alone, there were three ladies
along side her.
They all began laughing, my mum turned
around, with a spoon still in her hand.
She was really happy and she couldn’t hide it.
we greeted and she introduced the the ladies
who happened to be her employees.
The business looked promising, much more
than the boutique did, just that it was difficult
to maintain and stressful.
I later left the restaurant, to pay Linda a Visit,
the ice cream was meant for her, using the
address she gave me.
I arrived the compound, it was about 5pm,
everywhere was quiet.
I knocked on a door, and was ready to
apologize, in case it was the wrong crib.
“Who dey there?” A masculine Voice asked.
I didn’t reply.
He opened the door,
“Yes, who are you looking for he asked” he
was only wearing his shorts.
“Am really sorry, I am looking for a Lady, her
name is Linda” I said
he frowned a little
“What do you want from Linda?”
I was about looking for a reply,
Someone opened the door wide, and peeped, It
was Linda
She looked tired, with hair scattered, she
probably woke up from sleep or they where at
it, the latter being the most probable.
“A moment please” she said
She dressed up and met me outside.
“Is that your boyfriend?” I asked
She kept quiet.
“Well he’s Good looking” i added
I handed the Ice cream to her.
**It wasn’t quite the reception I expected, I
wasn’t even invited in**
She thanked me for the ice cream.
I left her and went home.
Some people are just too confused to relate
with love, not too long ago she was professing
her love for me.
Like I said, it wasn’t love, just an extension of
her excitement for passing the post utme.
I arrived home, she kept calling me and i kept
rejecting it.
I called Sandra.
“Have you checked your result?”
She asked
“What result?”
“The first semester result, it is out!”
