My sweetheart Episode 33 & 34

My Sweet Heart
#Episode 33
… Iyke’s POV ..
I woke up too early..
Damn…I know. I could’t sleep cos I was thinking about Valerie and drinking..
I tossed and turned on my be-d.
The wall clock ticked Six o’clock.
The AC was on but I still felt sweaty.
I feel like im gonna get fv¢king sick.
I got down from the be-d.
I walked into the bathroom and over to the sink.
I splashed water on my face as I stared at myself on the mirror.
I breathed.
I know I’ve been a fool.
A total idiot!
I messed up but how can I just let go?
How can I loose Valerie?
She was the best!
She has everything! She loved me! so de-eply.
fv¢k! But can’t just let go.
I nee-d Valerie in my damn life!
I nee-d her! So im not quiting! Im gonna do everything within me to get her back.
And…and she said there’s a better person in her heart now.
Who can that be?
I don’t mind ending his life! I don’t mind doing everything just to get Valerie back!
It’s never too late.
Im gonna get you back Valerie.
I walked out and went over to the beside table.
I picked up something.
It was the engagement ring.
The fake proposal.
I found it that night at the door.
A teae fell off my eye and I wiped it off quic-kly and dropped back the ring.
“Who’s that person in Vale’s life that wanna take her away from me? How do I just find the damn person?” I fell back on my be-d as thoughts filled up my mind.
“And.. that ‘Joy’, does he have anything to do with this?”
Oh Valerie can’t be so stupid to fall for an Insane bastard.
I just hope I find the stupid guy in her life and just deal with him.
I will end his life! In whatever way I can.
I nee-d Valerie back to me.
I miss her. And I’ve realize my mistakes.
Damn me!
… Valerie’s POV ..
I was alre-ady dressed for work.
I k!$$£d Joy who sat on my be-d, staring at me.
“Hey, be safe Have enough sleep and eat. I’ll be back on time ok?” I smiled and t©uçhed his cheek and he blu-shed.
“Aunty Valerie. When. You. Are. back. I will. Tell. you. something.” He said.
“Can’t you tell it to me now?”
He shook his head.
“Fine. When im back then.” I said.
As I drove out to work, a smile displa-yed on myl-ips as I remembered how this morning with Joy had been.
I woke up to find my head resting on his che-st… and also half of my b©dy on his.
Our legs crossed each other and he had his arm on my back.
I smiled and tried to get off him but he held me ti-ght.
Isn’t he slee-ping? and why don’t he wanna let me get off him?
How did we even end up slee-ping this way?
He snuggled me more close and sighed in his sleep.
I tried getting off him again and this time, he let go.
I smiled and k!$$£d his cheek before heading to the bathroom.
When I got back he wasn’t in again… but as I walked out to the kitchen, he was there, mopping.
He saw me and turned over.. then raised the mopping stick.
“It. Looks. Like. Me. Right?” He grinned, referring to the mopping stick.
“How?”I asked, confused.
He t©uçhed his hair and the mopping stick head and grinned again.
I laughed.
Oh my!
“No.. it doesn’t in anway look like my cute Joy.” I said and walked over to him.
He blu-shed.
“Thanks.” He mumbled.
But minutes after minutes, I found myself laughing over that cos in some kinda way , He kinda look like the mopping stick.
With such long dada.
But I love him and nothing else matters.
I got to work and few minutes later in my office, A knock c@m£ in.
“Come in.” I said.
The door opened and it was Maureen.
“Goodmorning Dr. Valerie.” She smiled.
“Goodmorning Maureen. How are you doing?” I smiled back.
“Sorry for not coming to..greet you yesterday.” She said.
“Oh that.. You have better reasons why you are here. Focus more on them.” I said.
“Thanks alot Doctor. You nee-d me to do anything for you?” She asked.
“Well, I guess you should help call me a nurse. I nee-d some files to be taken to Dr. Femi’s desk.” I said.
“Let me take them to him.” She offered.
“Oh.. I’do prefer a nurse to do that.” I said.
“Alright Doctor.” She said, turned and walked out.
Work was over and as I prepared to leave, I called on Maureen to help take away some trash papers.
She c@m£ and did just that.
“Bye Dr.” She said.
“Bye Maureen.”
I got home and did as usual. Joy opened the gate minutes later.
He wore a grey polo and black short which looked perfect on him.
Wow… He’s really built.
Didn’t I notice this all this while?
The polo was kinda ti-ght on him.
Wow, he’s so cute… maybe more cute today.
Like everyday.
Oh.. get down from the car Valerie!
I got down from the car.
“J .O. Y” I called him.
He smiled shly, ma-king me get excited to see his dimples.
I k!$$£d him and he blu-shed.
“Okay. Let’s go in.” I said and took his hand as we walked in.
Getting in, “Wow!” I was marvelled.
The sitting-room was different and sparkling.
“Joy did you do this?” I asked.
“I.cleaned.” He smiled.
“Wow. You are just too lovely. Come here.” I smiled and pu-ll-ed him into a warm hvg, then k!$$£d him.
“Come. Let. me. Show. you.” He said and pu-ll-ed me as we headed into my be-droom.
Oh my!
He tidied up everything. Even though my room is never untidy but it was different. Much more lovely.
How did he even do it?
I turned to him.
“Joy, Wow. Im amazed you can really tidy up a house so well.” I said.
“Come.” He said and pu-ll-ed me again and we went to the kitchen.
Wow.. same here.
Wow. I’ve been saying ‘wow’ alot since I c@m£ in.
“Aunty Valerie sit.” He said and went over to the fridge.
I watched him as I sat on the breakfast bar.
He took out a jui-ce from the fridge and a glas-s cu-p, closed back the fridge, walked over and placed it in front of me.
He opened the jui-ce and poured into the glas-s almost to the full.
“Joy. What’s it? Where’s your cu-p?” I asked with a weird look.
He sat down.
“Aunty Valerie. Drink.” He said.
I narrowed my eyes at him.
“Are you sure I should?” I said as I studied his face and the drink.
He nodded.
“It’s sweet.” He said.
“I know.” I said.
“Drink. Small. So I. can.Tell you what. I said.. I. will .tell you.” He said.
I shrugged and took a sip.
“Will. You. take small. Again?” He said.
“Okay.” I said and died. I finished almost all of it.
“Aunty Valerie.” He called coolly.
“Yes?” I answered.
“Do you. Really. Love. Me?” He asked.
“Yes Joy. I love you.” I said.
“Then plea-se. Let. Me. see Sabi and. My. other. Friends. Tomorrow.” He said.
Oh oh oh!
“Is that what you wanted to tell me?” I asked.
He nodded.
“Fine. I will let you see them okay?” He grinned.
“Thank you!” He said he rushed to the fridge, took a cu-p, c@m£ back… Poured the whole of the jui-ce into the cu-p and gulped all of it..
He grinned.
Then took the empty jui-ce pack and shook it to check if there’s still left inside.
Nothing.. Nothing at all.
He calmed down and then looked at me.
“Im.sorry” He mumbled.
I raised my eyevbows..“Sorry for what?”
“For. Finishing. Up. The jui-ce.” He said.
“It’s fine.” I said and stood up to go wash my the cu-ps but he gr@bb£d them before me and win-ked.
Did he just win-ked at me?
Oh my!
He’s just happy, I guess.
He turned and walked over to the sink.
I watched him with a smile..
#Episode 34
… Valerie’s POV (Continues ..
I had showered and pu-ll-ed into a nightie.
Joy was staring at himself on the standing mirror beside the dressing table.
He was in his Pajamas.
“Joy come over.” I said.
He nodded and c@m£ over.
We layed down and just then, my phone beeped.
A message.
I opened it to see it was a message from the number that texted me two days ago.
I wanted to delete it but then decided to re-ad it.
I opened the message.
**Honey, Valerie. I really nee-d us to make things right between us.
Let’s forget about the past and move. Let’s open a new chapter of me and you so de-eply inlove with each other. Give me another chance baby and I promise you with a swear that nothing will ever make you regret it again. I really love you so much Vale plea-se forgive me. I miss staring at those stars in your eyes and that amazing smile that you got. You are my world. I’ve been in pains since you left me. I’ve been incomplete without you. plea-se don’t let anyone replace me in your heart. Come back to me. I beg you.**
“Aunty Valerie. See. Tears. In your eyes.You. Are. crying.” Joy said coldly.
Huh? Have he been looking at me?
I deleted the message and shut my eyes.
Then I felt Joy’s thumb wipe my tears and then he snuggled me close to him and starts patting me slowly on the back.
I woke up the next day, totally better.
Joy wasn’t with them.
Has he woken up alre-ady?
I was about sitting up when the door opened and Joy c@m£ in with a saucer and a cu-p. Which I guess would be coffee.
I sat up and moved to the edge of the be-d.
“Aunty Valerie.” He said coolly and walked over to me.
“Tea.” He said.
I smiled, “Oh.. thanks.” I said and took the saucer.
I drank a bit
It was sweet, smooth and warm.
He watched as I finished it up.
“Thanks Joy.” I smiled.
He took the saucer and cu-p.
“Aunty Valerie.” He called calmly.
“Are we. Seeing. My friends. This morning?”
“No Joy, I’ll be back early so we can okay?”
He nodded.
“Aunty Valerie.”
“What is it again Joy?” I asked
“I. had. A. Dream.” He said coldly.
“Bad. Dream” He nodded.
“Bad dream?” I raised my brow.
He nodded.
“What happened in the dream?” I asked.
“I have. Forgotten.” He said.
I arched my brow, “But you said it was a bad dream.”
He nodded.
“You don’t remember anything?” He shook his head.
“It’s okay. Nothing’s gonna happen ok?” I said.
He nodded.
I stood up.
“I’ll go take my bathe.” I said and walked into the bathroom.
As I took my bathe…my mind flashed back to Iyke.
His message.
I feel he’s truely sorry. I feel he has now realized his mistakw but it’s too late for that.
Im alre-ady inlove with Joy.
I can’t let Iyke come into my life again.
I feel sorry for him now, knowinf he’s truely sorry and in regret.
Maybe I could give him back the car and maybe forget about selling the house anymore.
But nothing’s gonna make us be together again.
He’s out of my life and now that de-epest side of my heart where I placed him had been taken by someone else.
I have Joy now and soon, he’ll be mentally okay?
I’ve s£nt his mental and health check outs and conditions to Dr. Andrew Morgan and he had promised that he’s gonna try his possible best to treat Joy’s health.
I can’t just wait…
… Joy’s POV ..
Im washing the dishes as I try so ha-rd to remember the bad dream.
But I can’t!
I know I had a bad dream.. and then I woke up and it was morning!
Why can’t I remember the bad dream!
Ahh! It must have been Aunty Valerie’s head on my che-st that made me forget it.
Because I was too happy..
Ahhg! I knocked my head angrily.
Why can’t it function well?
But I really nee-d to remember the dream..
Ohh! Bad dream! bad dream.. Why did you disappear from this my head??
I want to remember you so I can tell Aunty Valerie.
Arggh! I knocked my head angrily again but ended up splashing soap water into my eyes
And there’s papper in!
“Ahheeeo!” I cried.
“Joy? What’s that?” Aunty Valerie is here.
Thank God.
“My eyes. My eyes. Pepper.” I cried.
“Oh my!” She said and seconds later, she bent my head towards where??
I can’t see coa my eyes are closed and peppery.
She began to wash my eyes with water.
“No.. Give. Me. Salt. Salt.” I cried.
I felt something pour into my palm and I poured it inside my mouth.
Ahh! It re-leased seconds later and I opened my eyes abit to see Aunty Valerie looking at me.
“Are you okay?” She asked, looking worried.
I nodded.
I love the way she is to me… So caring to me.
“Didn’t even thought of salt at all.” She chuckled, wiping the we-tness on my face.
I was fine now.
My eyes are fully open.
… Valerie’s POV ..
“What happened?” I asked.
Gosh! I got so scared.
He scratched his head.
“I was. trying. To remember. The dream.” I said.
“You were trying to remember the dream and then pepper got into your eyes?”
He nodded.
I sighed.
“Come on, come help me at the gate.” I said and he nodded.
I closed woke early cos of taking Joy to go see his friends.
“You’re leaving so early today Vale.” Eva said.
“Yeah.. Something urgent. Take care of the rest.” I said and walked out.
Getting home, Joy opened the gate and I drove in.
He was looking really handsome
He hvgged me immediately.
“Im. Happy. Im. going. to see. my. Friends todayyyy.” He said.
“You mean those ones I saw with you at the uncompleted building?” I asked.
“Yes!” He grinned.
I smiled.
He was dressed in a fine yellow shi-t and black trou-ser.
I can say he look really good.
“I tell. them. So. many things.” He said.
“Oh what?” I asked.
“Shhh.” He placed a f!nger on myl-ips and laughed.
I chuckled.
He’s adorable.
“Aunty Valerie?” He called.
“Can. I give. my. friends. yoghurt?” He asked.
“Oh.. alright.” I said.
He grinned “Thanks!” He said and hvgged me ti-ght.
I inhaled.
He pu-ll-ed back and dashed to the kitchen..
I shook my head with a smile.
Everything about him is so childish but at the same time, amazing.
He c@m£ back minutes latee with a small basket filled in yoghurt drinks.
I smiled.
He’s so caring and knows his frienda would want something like this.
“Let’s. Go. before it. Gets dark.” He said happily and took my hand.
I smiled more.
… Iyke’s POV …
The taxi at Auren’s Street.
I handed him his money and reached for the door.
“Oga, your change.” He said.
Oh I totally forgot!
Why won’t I? When all i’ve been thinking throu-gh out the drive to here have been ‘Valerie’.
“Thanks man..” I took the three hundred naira from him and c@m£ down, shutting the door and he drove off.
I c@m£ to speak to Valerie..
I nee-d to!
I nee-d to let her un-derstand that im de-eply sorry.
I went to the hospital but found out she had gone. So I had to come down to her house.
I really nee-d Vale in my life.
I really do.
I had walked a little bit when I saw her car packed beside.
“What’s Vale’s car doing here? Did it break down?”
I went over but then I sighted her.
She was in an uncompleted building with stood inside.
Not just her alone but with the insane guy. with some kids.
What in the world are they doing in such a place?
I watched them…
