(👩💼🎀She’s the boss👩💼🎀, 👨💼🤫I’m the maid🤫👨💼)
❣️ Written by Haryormideh Ayeni ❣️
Five years later,
I stood at the arrival terminal in the airport, looking for my ride home.
I had travelled to Europe for college with the help of Div and Donald and graduated with an upper class in law. I specifically chose to major in law so I can lend my voice to those that are voiceless.
I saw a flag raised up with the name CounterKnee.
I shook my head and walked to the person who was busy chatting away on his phone with a big smile on his face.
I smacked him on the arm “Didn’t I tell you not to call me CounterKnee?” I playfully glared at him.
“What do you expect me to do when I miss you so much?” He grinned at me
“Should I blush now or what?”
“None, a hug will do”
I hugged him tight “it’s been five years”
“I know right, it feels like yesterday and it also feels like ages ago”
We disengaged from the hug and he collected my luggages from me, leading me to sleek car and I noticed an entourage.
“Please don’t tell me you hired these people?” I asked Donald.
“What do you think, our bossy maid is back. You deserve to be treated like a president or a queen” he winked and entered the car after putting my luggages in the booth.
“I don’t understand you” I continued when we entered the car “if I’m to be treated like a queen, why are you driving when we have an entire entourage behind us?” I asked
“Because I’m treating you like a queen, durh”
“I’ll think of you as my driver then” I smiled satisfactorily.
“I have a very juicy news” he licked his lips.
“I can see it’s really juicy for you to lick your lips, did you taste the juice?”
He glared at me and concentrated on driving. Knowing him, I knew he would continue talking.
“My three year old girl is dying to see you. She even decorated her bedroom and expects you to shared the room with her” he said admiringly.
“I knew she would always be smart, smarter than her father who paid an entire entourage to accompany us home”
“It’s was her idea, so that means I’m smarter” he bit his cheeks to surpress himself from laughing.
“Wow that’s so smart of her, she deserves a medal.” I replied wiping the smile off his face.
“Hmph..” he scoffed “the most juicy part is Div is getting married today”
My smile disappeared easily, “b..but… he..pro… promised to w.. wait f..for me”
“I know right, CounterKnee, it’s a pity I’m married and have an adorable three year old girl else I would have asked us to get married”
I glared at him this time very seriously.
“I’m so sorry Nora, should we disrupt the wedding?” He asked sending a worried glance at me.
“No” I replied sadly “let them be, guess I ain’t worth waiting for then.”
“Should we go out to loosen your worry?”
I nodded, not trusting myself to speak. I was very happy I was finally going to see him after three year. He visited me three years ago while we facetimed.
“Can I FaceTime Nora? I want to see her” I asked.
Donald and his wife had named their first daughter after me and they’re currently expecting a boy.
“I’m sorry no. If she sees you’re unhappy, she’ll be unhappy too and rub it off on her mother and you know pregnancy hormones”
I nodded understandingly and looked out the window.
Div is getting married today, they would probably be saying their vows now.
The car eventually stopped and I was led into a dark inbuilt garden.
“Now who said you aren’t worth waiting for?” Donald said and the light turned on on cue.
Little Nora came running to me in excitement, wearing a short white gown, a tiara, holding a bouquet of flowers and a small box.
“Auntie!” She screamed as she ran over, her little feet barely touching the floor.
I squatted and waited for her, she rushed into my embrace “can I have your hair?” She asked innocently.
“Ahem” Donald cleared his throat and looked at her meaningfully.
She eyed her dad and turned to me.
“Will you please marry that pitiful kneeling Uncle there? I don’t want him to cry” she whispered conspirationally and gave me the flowers holding the box.
I followed where she pointed and found Div kneeling on one knee with an arm stretched, looking as cute as ever.
” Didn’t Donald say he was getting married today?” I wondered loud.
“You shouldn’t always believe daddy, he was promise to read me bedtime stories but he runs away most times and has never braided my hair!” Little Nora huffed.
“Don’t worry, we’ll do something about that”
“I knew I could trust you” she replied and placed a kiss on my cheek. “Aren’t you giving that Uncle an answer, I don’t want him to sleep in my room again!”
I raised an eyebrow at her questioningly “I’ll tell you later”
Then I took a good look at the garden room. There were about fifteen more people on the room including Donald’s wife, Flynn and his family, Mr and Mrs Wilson and other faces I don’t recognize.
I turned to kick Donald for lying to me, but he had moved far away from me.
I stood and walked closer to where Donald was. “Shouldn’t you be putting the ring in my finger?”
He smiled in relief and collected the box from me. Did he think I’ll say no to him?
“Yes, I’ll be your bride” I smiled through the tears threatening to fall. I was overwhelmed with a lot of emotions.
Having sex with my husband to be seemed difficult but with his love, we’ll conquer that fear.
“My wife, my confider, my best friend, the mother to my children and my Heart Rob” he said as he slid the ring into my finger. “I love you”
“I love you too” I said and pulled him up.
He crashed his lips on mine and I opened, giving him access to every fibre of my being.
The crowd cheered loudly behind us.
It’s funny how I found solace in the arms of a stranger, a Drug Lord especially.
I broke the kiss and stared to his loving eyes.
” Let’s share a toast” Donald said and nodded for me to toast.
When does a wife to be toast to her proposal?
I took a champagne from a passing waiter.
“Cheers to a beautiful beginning.”
“Cheers to a new beginning” they all answered and clinked up.
“Cheers to that Uncle not getting drunk again.” Little Nora added quietly, holding her orange juice.
