I’m in love with a soldier and I no know who send me message!!!
I saw him from afar, and I quickly changed my steps to that of an injured warrior.
“Otondo, won’t you double up?!” he shouted as we approached him.
“I have a pain sir.”
“Oh ok” His voice became calmer and tender. “Have you visited the clinic? What happened?”
“Na you oh, soldier na you…” I sang in my head. “A minor bruise” I rep-lied
“Why not go to the clinic and rest if it hurts that much,” he suggested.
Choi, Chi’m, how sweet can it get, heaven does listens. And off to the clinic I hopped. On getting there I sighted my neighbor who’s also a nurse. I beckoned to her
“Babe, please come”
“Nothing much jare” I drew her close and whispered “Please just bring aboniki and massage my leg, I just want to relax here”.
She smiled in a mischievous way and began “the treatment” while I sat lost in thoughts, day dreaming of my hunk.
“Do you feel better?” she formally asked. I looked at her with a mischievous grin and nodded.
Finally the SAED lectures were over for the day and as I approached the hall I saw Ify.
“Where were you? Didn’t sight you at all during the lectures, this madam.” she inquired.
“Abeg I went to the clinic to chill a bit”, I sighed. I couldn’t tell her the recent developments going on inside me, she would taunt me for the rest of my life and I wasn’t ready. “Let’s go and eat Mama Ejima’s jollof” I quickly changed the subject.
And that day was the beginning of every other day….
I’m in love with a soldier, and I no know who send me message o!!!
