Good Morning amazing people!!!
To my people stateside folks I hope you had a great long weekend. To everyone else, I hope your week is off to the great start ?
Okay so, who’s missed my couple of life – Chudi and Nkem? I know you haven’t seen them in a while and I apologize. Without further delay, please find this week’s storisode Lost In Found 6 – Breakfast Continues. Please click here for previous storisodes!
I leaned back in my chair and took a long look at her. She’s beautiful. It’s funny, I’ve been staring at her for the past few weeks, watching her sleep but that never came to mind.
Me: Me what?
Nkem: I hear an Eliza-accent
Me: HAHAHAHAHAHA! How are you this razz?! Anyone else would say British accent
Nkem: Well I’m not anyone else. Don’t change the subject. Tell me Please…
Me: I was born in the U.K. Grew up in Lagos. Went back to the Europe for uni and my masters and moved back to Lagos.
Nkem: Hmm… Sharp shooter I see
Me: How so?
Nkem: Never mind. Do you have parents, siblings, a wife, concubine…?
Me: You are my wife and I have no mistresses. We have a good marriage believe it or not
Nkem: Are you sure?
Me: Why do you keep doing that?
Nkem: Doing what?
James: Your breakfast is ready madam
Thank goodness for James. I was about to lose it again. There is something about the way she flinches when I bring up our marriage that bothers me. Even if it isn’t real. She doesn’t know that! What is her problem anyway?! Am I not good enough for her? I’m the second most eligible bachelor in Lagos for Christ sakes! And the only reason that is is because the first is a singer that plays best man in every wedding there is! She should know she’d be lucky to have me look at her in real life!
Nkem: Wow! Easy tiger, you were gone there for a minute. Are you okay?
Me: I am well. Listen, Dubem is on his way to check on you and watch the game with me.
Nkem: But he checked me out last night! Why do I need another physical examination today?
Me: Because I want to be sure you’re okay. You may feel fine but you did wake up with a headache so I want to have it looked at!
Nkem: *Hmph* Fine
Me: You’re cute when you sulk
Nkem: I am not sulking
Me: Like a two year old
Nkem: Stop it
Me: It’s actually really funny
Nkem: I will kill you!
Me: Hold still lemme get a photo
Nkem: O MY GOD STOP!
She laughed to… I like seeing her this way.
Nkem: You say that a lot, you know? “Listen” So oyibo
Me: I am not!
Nkem: Naija people say “see eh”
Me: What do you know about naija people! Ms. New York!
Nkem: *gasped* Take that back I’m Wawa made!
Me: Abegi! You couldn’t pass for an Enugu babe if your life depended on it
Nkem: No you did not!
Me: Hahahahaha! Listen
Nkem: *eye roll*
Me: See eh
We both busted out laughing
Me: What I am trying to say is… I know this is hard on you, and would require a lot of adjusting at first. But this isn’t beyond you. You are a fighter. You’re resilient. Everything will work out perfectly in the end. And I’ll be with you every step of the way so you don’t have to worry okay? We’re in this together.
She looked up and stared at me for a moment. I could tell she was a little worried. Scared even. Chewing her plantain. When she finally swallowed. She smiled a little…
Nkem: You promise?
Me: I promise
Thank you so much for reading!!! Enjoy the rest of your week. ???
