C7 Chapter 7. I'm lost!
As I packed my things, I realised I had more than I needed. My mom had to give me three extra bags to pack up, funniest part is that most of them, I don't use them.
"Ah, madam, you will not break my back." Konyii complained, rubbing her back.
"Sorry. As if it's not you That makes me buy unnecessary things." I said, dragging the first box with me.
"Ahh, how? If I buy hell now will you follow me and buy?"
" As long as you buy. " I said making her laugh.
We finally finished packing around 10am. We aren't slow, we took a break to eat, use our phones and chatter among ourselves. Ok, we were a tad bit slow.
I got ready and dressed up. My mom said after I am done taking my things to the house, I should text Tobi and ask for the address.
"Aunt mi, I'll miss you!" I said pecking aunt Temi on the cheek,
"I'll miss you too, " She hugged me really tight.
"I'll miss you!!" Bola shouted from the sitting room making us laugh.
"I'll miss you too!!" I shouted back.
After so much hugs and kisses we said our goodbyes, I was happy to finally go home after two years.
"Abiola, are you done?" My mom shouted from downstairs. We were currently in our house. It is located in wellwood, Aberdeen. My room is very big with a queen sized bed right in the middle, and two bedside drawers on each side of my bed. The walls are painted a light shade of blue, My favorite color. My closet is in the left side of the wall facing my bed, it has two doors. One facing my room and the other to the bathroom. While my bathroom is all gold, with the chandelier hanging from the ceiling in the middle. Gold tiles and a sparkly white bathtub. The mirror is very wide, sometimes I wonder what my dad was thinking.
My TV is placed in the right corner of the wall facing my bed. Beside it, the wall is glass from the ceiling down to the floor with white and blue curtains moved to the side. It has a door leading to my balcony, which has the view to the very blue looking swimming pool. I don't have the slightest idea on how to swim, I only asked for it so I could sit in it, it isn't very deep.
"Abiola, I asked you a question," My mom said poking her head through my door, bringing me out of my trance.
"Sorry, I'm almost done. Can you tell Lilly to please make noodles for me I'm hungry and banana smoothie." I asked my mom, referring to my nanny. Lillian in full.
"I will tell her. Get ready, your tutor starts today, " She told me while I picked up a black high neck sleeveless top. I groaned and stomped my foot like a kid who was refused ice cream.
"Can't I start some other day, I'm tired ah, " The look on my mom's face told me if I don't get ready I would be kicked out of the house in an empty stomach. So I obliged.
I got dressed in the black top I was holding earlier, paired it with another black jeans and then wore a cream colored light jacket. I put on a socks and wore my cream colored sneakers, I carried a black scarf and tied it at the back of my head, leaving the ends flowing.
"I'm ready!" I shouted from the top of the stairs, just to make my mom angry.
"Abiola, stop shouting!" She snapped, making me laugh.
I got downstairs, the aroma of my noodles drawing me closer. When I got to the dining of six black chairs, walls painted white with a splash of black paint in the bottom and the top leaving the middle part bare. On the left side of the wall facing the second kitchen door, has my baby picture of when I was immediately born framed with gold colored frame. My dad kept it there and the amount of pleas didn't make him remove it, so I gave up. I just tried my best to not make any visitor come there. Since we had a visitors sitting room and dining, it made it easier.
As I sat down, I picked my phone up and texted Konyii.
Me: Baby I miss you😏
Crime partner😈💍🔐❤: You sure? 😒
Me: What's with the face 😂
Crime partner😈💍🔐❤: Abeg did you see any fine boy? I dinor miss you.
Me : Be deceiving yourself there, mumu😂
Crime partner😈💍🔐❤: I'm coming tomorrow oo
Me: Don't come, shey you dinor miss me😒
Crime partner😈💍🔐❤: Oya, I miss you. Happy?
Me: Idiot, as if I can stop you.
Crime partner😈💍🔐❤: Thank God you know.
Then my nanny put my food on the table, I looked up and smiled at her. She is a woman in her late 30s, she treats me like a baby. I wonder why she's still single though, she has all the equalities of an ideal wife.
"Thanks Lilly," She nodded.
"Bisi said I should tell you to text your tutors friend, you have to leave the house by 4:00pm. " She delivered the message and left.
Crime partner😈💍🔐❤: Idiot.
Crime partner😈💍🔐❤: Babe!
Crime partner😈💍🔐❤: Ok, bye. 😒
Me: Sorry I was talking to Lilly, she brought food for me.
Crime partner😈💍🔐❤: Oh, tell her I said hi.
Me: Ok, can you please send Tobi's number to me?
Crime partner😈💍🔐❤:I see someone's catching feelings oooo😏😏
Me: Ode, catching feeling ko, losing feelings ni😡
Crime partner😈💍🔐❤:So you're already losing feelings when you guys haven't even started dating? Tsk tsk.
Me: When I asked God for a best friend, he gave me you. So sad😔
Crime partner😈💍🔐❤: Ode, you love me like that.
Me: Too bad I do😔. Abeg send the number joor, mummy said I'm starting tutor today, I need Ayos address.
Crime partner😈💍🔐❤: Shey you will not lost like this, I cannot be looking for you oo. Better let him take you jejely.
Me: I'm not surprised by your reply, oponu. Just send it, I won't lost and besides I'll just use map. You people will be telling him to carry me around as if he's my driver, driver sef cannot carry me around like that. I will not enter his car again after what he did the last time.
Crime partner😈💍🔐❤: You deserved the last time, you don't know anything about his mom. Why would you say that? His mom is a very sad topic for him, in fact his parents.
I wondered what she meant by that, his mom is a very sad topic. I really wanted to satisfy my curiosity.
Me: What do you mean by that?
Crime partner😈💍🔐❤: It's not my story to tell, besides if you really want to know, you have to be on his good side. But with your character towards him, I doubt that will ever happen.
Me: Whatever 😒, send abeg.
Crime partner😈💍🔐❤: Ok.
Then she sent the number, I saved it as Mr. Jerk. Don't blame me, I'll never forget what he did to me, ever!
Me: Let me get ready to leave the house before mummy starts complaining, love you 😘😘
Crime partner😈💍🔐❤: Love you too❤
"Abiola!!!, You still haven't left the house!" My mom shouted from the living room.
"I'm coming, let me pick my bag. " I ran up the stairs, if I say I should walk now, my mother can throw frying pan on my head. After I got to the top of the stairs, I bent a little putting my hands on my knees, panting hard.
I entered my room and picked my black bag, putting my pen, jotter, earpiece and wallet. I kept my phone in my jacket pocket.
I went downstairs, pecked my mom on the cheek and ran out. She was already complaining, I wasn't the person the hurry up. I take my time.
Once in my beautiful white BMW, which has always been in my dad's garage, I texted him.
Me: Hey, this is Abiola. Can you please send Ayos address?.
His reply came almost immediately, as if he's been waiting for my message. Maybe he's been waiting. I thought to myself, who am I kidding?
Mr. Jerk: Ok.
He sent the address shortly after, I realized it was a 20minutes drive from my dad's house. Simple.
Thirty minutes later, I didnt know where I was. In the first twenty minutes I knew I was going the wrong way, so I used google map. I still got lost, now I have no freaking idea where I am. I felt like throwing my phone out the window, simple address it couldn't show me.
I gave up and called Konyii.
Me: Babe, I dunno where I am.
Crime partner😈💍🔐❤: 😂😂😂😂😂😂, shey I warned you. You that cannot follow directions to save your life.
Me: See, come and help me oo. Before they will kidnap me oo.
Crime partner😈💍🔐❤: They must kidnap you today, shey you don't use to hear word. 😂😂😂
Me: Stop na, I'm getting scared, this place is really deserted and looks like a forest, trees every where.
I said my voice trembling, I can fear. Got that trait from my mom.
Crime partner😈💍🔐❤: 😂😂only for the love of God. I'll ask Tobi if he can help. Me I don't even know the place.
Me: Ok, call him. But hurry up oo.
After what felt like eternity, I called her back. It said her number was busy. I called again after some minutes, it said the same thing. I was getting really scared now. I called a few more times but this time she didn't pick up. I could see my heart beating out of my chest.
Then I saw a black truck it parked a few meters away from me, making me more scared. What if they kidnap me? What if they kill me and throw me inside the sea? With the amount of people I've disrespected, I won't be shocked. Then my phone rang, I picked it up immediately without checking the caller Id, so it doesn't get the attention of the person in the black truck a few meters from me.
My voice was really shaky, even my hands. Atleast I could still hold my phone.
Unknown: Where are you?
My muscles relaxed a little after hearing the person's voice. Oluwa shame my enemies.
Me : I'm in the bush, with tall trees, in a white BMW.
Mr. Jerk: The one in front of me?
He asks coming out of the truck. No the one on your head, I
mentally rolled my eyes.
Me: Yes, are you the one beside the black truck?
No, he's the one on top of the tree, my subconscious said.
Mr. Jerk : Yes, come out na, will I kidnap you?
Then I stepped out of the car. And waved, he came over to me. I hung up.
"You know all you had to do is drive straight a little and you would have seen the estate. " He said a matter of factly, raising a brow.
"How would I have known, it's not as if I've been here before, " I rolled my eyes.
"I see you have mouth now, let's go I'm using my break. I need to get back to work. " He didn't wait for my reply as he strode to his truck and got in and started driving. They didnt need to tell me twice before I quickly got in my car and followed him.
Alhamdullilah, I didn't get lost today.
Shey-its like a Yoruba slang used in place of right?
