🥰My Sweet Heart🥰
… Valerie’s POV …
“Wow, girl you really got in the mood like an adultbaby made you…?” Eva smirked.
“Oh stop Eva. I was suprised at myself.” I said.
It was evening and we both had closed for the day.
I was driving her home cos she told me her mom had to use her own car.
“What’s funny Eva?” I asked.
“Wow.. Im amazed. Like im actually thinking how sex with an adultbaby would be like. Like you are going to do it all.” She said.
“But babe, you mean you’re falling for Joy, a weirdo that you just met a week now?” Eva said, looking at me.
“Im already inlove with him.” I said.
“You don’t mean this Vale, do you?”
“I do Eva. Im not joking here. I love Joy.” I said.
She shook her head, “Fine.. Finally, Iyke is out of your life and someone else is in but this person can’t be Joy. An adultbaby.” Eva said.
“I know but you should understand that Joy can get okay.. Im sure he wasn’t born that way.” I said.
“Even at that Vale Joy is mentally ill and we don’t know if he’s will get better after treatment.” She said.
“I love him and that’s it. I’ll do my best to make sure he get’s mentally fine.” I said.
“Eva, you know
“I don’t care.” I snapped.
“Vale, it’s okay. If you’re happy then im fine with it. We just have to find a remedy for his mental sickness.” She said.
“Yeah.. I talked with Dr. Andrew Morgan today from G.A.H. He’s coming over soon. He explained that he travelled out but will be back before thursday.” I said.
“Well. Why don’t we go for another psychologist. Thursday is way too far.” Eva said.
“Let’s wait for him. Dr. Andrew is a well know psycholgist. By the way, Michael is coming next week tuesday. I talked with him today.” I said.
“Oh my God! Are you serious?” She screamed.
“Yeah.. Eva you gotta promise me one thing.” I said.
“That you won’t try anything with Michael.” I said.
“Eva, you know I really love your brother.” She said.
“But Emeka loves you more and would do anything for you. Don’t try any shit.” I said.
“I’ve heard you.” She said.
I dropped Eva at her gate as age waved me ‘goodbye’ and went in.
I drove off..
Reaching my gate… I saw a figure standing.
I got to realise it was Iyke when he turned towards.
I hissed and hit the car horn.
He walked over and knocked softly on the car window.
I horned again..Ignoring his knocks.
Joy should just be quick in opening this gate.
I hate to see this asshole.
Soon, the gate opened and I drove in, but Iyke was able to come in as well.
I turned off my car engine and stepped down.
“Valerie..” Iyke called as he rushed towards and knelt in
Joy walked and stood beside me as we watched Iyke.
“Vale, im begging.. you. please just listen to me.” Iyke said.
“Who gave you the permission to step your feet in this house Iyke? now get out of my house!” I said.
He shook his head.
“Vale please listen to me. I really regret all I did to you. Please give me another chance to make up for all the mistake I did..” He begged.
I chuckled, “Well Mr Iyke… It’s too late now cos right now, you are totally and completely outta my heart and life and you know what; A new much better person has my heart now.” I said.
“Who?” He asked.
“You dare not ask me such question!. I really don’t know why you still got the wing to come to me after all you did to me. Now just get lost out of my house!” I barked.
He shook his head, “No. I can’t leave untill you listen to me.” He said.
“Fine I think calling some one would help out.” I said then looked at Joy.
“Joy what do you think?”
I got out my pbone and pretended like I dialed a line.
I then placced the phone on my ear.
“Hey Blade.. You dey street now? Okay abeg come fast fast… this guy don’t want to leave my house. I think he’s a rapist. A drunkard.Okay.. two minutes.”
Iyke stood up.
“Vale, you can’t do this to me,” Iyke said and walked away.
Joy followed him and locked the gate when he left.
I rolled my eyes.
When Joy came back and stood in my front; I threw him a playful glare.
“What are you still doing standing?” I asked.
“Uhmm..” He mumbled, looking confused.
I drew close and gently kissed him on the lips.
I drew back with a smile.
“Did you miss me?” I asked.
I kissed him again, then took his hand and we walked in.
We were in the kitchen, preparing dinner.
Fried egg and toasted bread.
As i took the onions to slice… He grabbed it from me.
“Huh!” I said, looking at him.
“Let. Me. slice it.” He said and grabbed the knife.
“No… use the slicer.” I said..
He stared at the slicer for awhile then shook his head and proceeded to slicing the onion with his hand.
“You might hurt yourself with that Joy.” I said, worried.
He shook his head.
I saw tears roll out from his eyes… It was affecting me as well.
“You should have just let the slicer do that.” I said.
He shook his head.
I rolled my eyed
“You are just stubborn.” I said and wiped the tear that just rolled down my eye.
I went for the tomatoes.
He got down with the onion before I was done with cutting the tomatoes..
As I opened the eggs and poured inside a ceramic plate, Joy was gathering the egg shell to dispose.
“Joy.” I called.
“Uh?” He mumbled and faced me, leaving what he was doing.
“Tell me all you did today while I was at work.” I said with a smile.
He smiled, killing me with those dimples of his..
“I. Slepttttttttttt till. I got. Tired.” He said.
“Wow.. tell me more. When you got tired what else did you do?” I asked.
He raised his hand and began counting his fingers.
“I ate, two. I ate, three, I drank water, four. I drank juice, five. I bathe. Six. No… no… I didn’t bathe six. I… I.” He faced down.
“You did what?” I asked.
He looked up and grinned.
“I.. Shaved.” He said, geting me really suprised.
“Okay.. you are lying.” I said.
When he doesn’t even know what that means.
“Im. Sorry but. I. want. To. Know. Can you. Teach. Me. After. We are. Done. Cooking?” He asked, forming a pleading face.
Now this is weird.
“I can teach you but you’ll have to do it yourself.” I said.
He smiled happily.
I rolled my eyes.
Now this is more weird.
Just few seconds after meal….
Joy started again.
“Aunty Valerie. Can. We. go now?” He asked.
“Go. and. do what?” He asked.
“Shave.” He said.
I inhaled, “Come on. We just ate and it’s neccesary ro relax for awhile after eating.” I said.
An hour later:
I walked with him to his room…
“Bathroom.” I pointed and he followed me.
“Pull down your trouser.” I said and shut my eyes.
Valerie you are in for this…Just show him the damn thing and get out.
My subconsiousness said calmly to me.
I nodded and opened my eyes to see Joy’s trouser down.
I took out the shave blade and inhaled.
“You see this??”
“When hairs grows down here.. and on your armpit.”
I showed him…
And when I finally knew he could do it..
I left him and hurried out
Reaching my bedroom, I leaned on the door and let out the breathe i’ve been holding for long.
So much for housing a weirdo!
I can’t believe I touched that..
Okay, I admit..
I never wanted to! but he’s so dumb to grab a thing!
Yeah.. im a doctor and this things shouldn’t move me a bit but I don’t just understand myself.
God! I pressed my palm on my forehead.
I then locked the door, sighed and went over to my closet to grab my pink nightie to go have my shower.
Few minutes after being done… and laying on the bed, going through my whatsapp chats.
A kbock came in.
I went over and opened the door.
He came in with a grin.
“Joy.. What’s it?”I asked.
I gasped as he pulled down his trouser to show me how neat it looks now.
“Joy pull up your trouser.” I said.
He nodded and did and immediately after doing that.
He hugged me..
“Can. I. sleep with. you?” He asked, still hugging me.
“Yeah. You can.” I said.
I pulled away.
But he kissed me immedately I did.
Then hugged me again and layed his head on my shoulder
“I. Love. You. Like. I. love Stella.Or maybe. More..
I. want. To. stay. here. Forever. Please. Aunty Valerie.” He said.
“Apart from Aunty Valerie. What else would you like to call me?” I asked.
He was silent for awhile.
Then he looked at me.
“My Sweet. Heart.” He said with a smile.
“Ohh.. why?” I asked.
“Because You are. My. Best Friend.” He said and layed his head on my shoulder and began humming a song.
“Im not just your bestfriend but someone special.” I mumbled.
“Come on. Let’s go sleep.” I said.
He disengaged the hug and we walked to the bed.
He layed down and I did.
I covered ourselves with the duvet.
We faced each other.
He smiled while I stared dreamingly at him till he closed his eyes and fell asleep.
Goodnigt my Joy.
… Valerie’s POV ..
I woke up to a light touch on my arm.
I opened my eyes to see it was Joy.
He was kneeling at the centre of the bed, with his eyes on me.
“Aunty Valerie. You. Are over. sleeping.” He said coolly.
Hell! oh my! I wonder what the time is.
I reached for my phone and the time said ‘8:30am’
Oh my! When im I really gonna get to work!
“Joy, you should have woken me up before now. Im certainly reaching O.S.H by ten!” I said as I rushed out to the bathroom.
I quickly brushed and had my bathe.
When I came out in a towel, Joy was out.
I walked to my dressing table, creamed my body and dressed my hair.
I picked a white tight gown and green heels.
I had totally forgotten the door wasn’t locked and was putting on my dress when the door opened and Joy walked in carrying a tray.
He faced down immediately he saw I wasn’t dressed. I was just on a white pantie and bra.
At least he’s learning to look away.
He placed the tray on the small table beside the sofa and on it was a mug cup and some slices of bread in a saucer.
Did Joy make tea for me?
“Joy, what’s that?” I asked.
“Tea..” He pointed.
“You made that for me?” I asked.
“Oh.. Thanks Joy but there’s no time for that. I need to be at work in a few minutes.” I said and pulled on my heels.
He nodded but I saw the sadness on his face.
He stared at me quietly as I quickly applied some light makeup, then grabbes my bag and phone.
I walked over to him.. I got closer… and then I kissed him on the lips..
He blushed with excitement.
“I’ll be back on time okay. I love you.” I said to him.
He blushed again.
“I. Love. You.” He said back.
I smiled and kissed him again.
“Comeon.” I said and took his hand and we walked out.
I was glad that I made it a little bit in time to work.
Later in the day, I had some chats with Eva who told me Emeka took her to see his uncle who recently came back from US.
“He’s always wanting me to meet every member of his family which sucks!” She said and rolled her eyes.
“Wow.. That is really cool. Iyke never took me to see any of his family. He was always giving one excuse or the other. Never knew he was nothing but a bitch.” I said.
She became calm.
“So you see girl, a man who love you would do anything just to show that he’s serious about you. That is what I realised.” I said.
“Well, what about Joy?” She changed the discussion.
“He’s fine. Cute like always.” I smiled.
“Oh that’s not what I mean. I like how you are you coping with a weirdo?” She asked.
I smiled, “He’s cool. So caring.” I said.
“Gist me. How do you guys play your love?” She winked.
I laughed, “Come on. What’s that”
“Come on. Do you two kiss and the rest, you know.”
“Kiss? Yeah. Eva, Joy is so adorable. I love him. Im planning on letting mom know. I just gotta let her know. She xan say whatever she wanna say.” I said.
“Girl I just think you shouldn’t let your mom get to know abput him for now.” Eva said.
“Eva I got to. Michael is caring home next week and there is no way, I’ll keep Joy away from them. They will certainly come around.” I said.
“Then I suggest you get him an apartment or keep him in a hotel where he’do stay till Michael travels back. You can do it.” She said.
I sighed, “No Eva, I can’t hide Joy from my family. Not now that I’ve got feelings for him.” I said.
“Well, I just gave a good suggestion. You know your mom too well Vale. You recall what happened then in secondary school?”
“Yeah, Samuel.” I said.
“That was then Eva. Im matured enough to love whoever I want to.”
“You are thinking the wrong way?”
“I don’t care. I love Joy and he say he loves me as well.”
“Wait, Joy said that he loves you?”
“Come on Vale, you easily fall for little words.” She said.
“Eva!” I breathed.
“Im sorry Vale, just that you should be more emotionally wise. Don’t be so soft.” She said.
“It’s fine!” I said.
I didn’t see Maureen today. I left work at six.
I stopped by a clothe shop and got Joy few clothes. I know he’ll like them..
I just want him to keep looking good.
I got him a body cream too and a cute hair band to pack his hairband.
If I could wish for anything now, is for Joy to look very pleasing.
After I left the clothe shop, I stopped by an eatery and bought pizza and barbecue chicken..
Then I drove home.
I horned and Joy opened up few minutes later.
Im so happy he doesn’t even go out when im out.
He’s so humble.
I drove in and he closed back the gate.
When I came down, he rushed me in a hug.
“Uhhh Joyy..” I smiled.
“I. Miss. You. Aunty Valerie.” He said.
“Oh really? me too sweets.” I smiled.
“I. Want. To..Tell. You. something.” He said, still hugging me.
He brought his lips to my ear.
“I. Missed. Your. Kissing.” He whispered and giggled.
I smiled and kissed him.
He blushed a smile.
His lips tasted more sweet this evening.
“Joy.. umm what did you take?” I asked with a smile.
“Nohing.” He shook his head.
Oh.. must be my silly thoughts!
I smiled and kissed him again.
“What’s. In. There?” He asked, looking at the shopping bag and nylon in my hand.
“Pizza, chicken and something for you.” I smiled.
Uh! He grabbed the bags.
“Uhhh!” I said, amazed.
He laughed and ran inside with the bag.
I chuckled and went in..
I saw him bringing the things in the shopping bag already
Haaa! What. Is this?..” He looked at the cream.
“Your cream.” I said as I got behind him.
“Ohh…and. This one?” He turned shaking it to my face.
“Your hairband. You like it?” I said.
“Let. Me. Try it on. Your hair.” He said and stepped forward.
“No. let’s go eat first.. Im famished.” I said.
Later at night:
“Wow.. Joy your hair looks so cute now.” I said as I ponytailed his dada with the hairband.
I was behind him, as we sat on the centre of the bed and I packed his hair.
Now im done and it looked so cute.
I came over and layed down, and put my arms behind my head.
He did same just immediately.
“Your hair look so cute now.” I said.
“T..thanks.” He said.
“But you look more cute.” I said.
He smiled with a happy blush.
“Joy?” I called.
“Uh?” He mumbled.
“Will you be scared to know my family? my mom and my brother? My dad as well?” I asked.
“No.. I. won’t. Be. Scared.” He said.
“Will you be scared to be treated?” I asked.
He looked at me, confusedly.
“But im. Not. Sick.” He said.
“Shh..” I smilef and turned over so I was facing him.
I then placed my hand on his neck.
“Ouch! Your temperature is high. You need some treatment and really soon.” I said playfully.
He smiled excitedly.
“Will. You. Treat. Me?” He asked.
“I won’t be the one to treat you.” I said.
“No…but. You. Are. a. Doctor.”
“I want. You. To. be the. To. treat me when. Im. Sick.”
“Come here..” I said and snuggled him closer to me…and kissed his hair.
“I love you Joy.. Do you know what that means?” I said.
“It means. That.you. Will. Be. my friend. Forever.” He said.
I smiled, “Yes you are right.”
I pulled more closer and rested my head on his chest.
It felt warm.
“I’do love us to make love. Do you know what that means too?” I asked.
He didn’t answer… instead I felt his heart start beating fast.
“Aunty. Valerie.” He mumbled.
“Do you know what that means?” I repeated.
He shook his head.
“We’ll make beautiful kids if we do that.”
I smiled and kissed him.
“Let’s sleep.” I whispered and snuggled him closer.
