The next day I set to leave for school when
Happy stopped me on my way out.
“Wow! Slay mama, you are looking gorgeous
as ever. Who are you wearing today?”
“Happy I’m not on red carpet, why all this
questions nau. See I’m not in the mood” I
“I’m sorry for bothering you o, I just love the
“I’m sorry I snapped, its just that I haven’t
gotten over yesterday’s drama”
“I thought as much”
“OK, I’m wearing Balmain fitted Dolman top,
a palazzo p@nt and a Valentino sandals.
Don’t worry I’ll place an order for you too
since you like
“No o don’t worry, with all the expensive
clothes you bought for me last month”
“I’m not complaining, I’m I”
“Thanks, you are a darling” she said flashing
“I’ll place the order later in the day or do you
want it for the boutique?”
“Both, once I wear it, then my customers too
would love to buy it”
“OK let me order for you first, then if your
customers likes it, then I’ll give you the name
of the store so you could buy from them, they
sell in stocks too”
“Oh…Thank you my slay queen” she hugged
me inhaling my Fancy night fragrance.
“See you later, I’m running late for lectures” I
said and left hurriedly.
After the day’s lecture, I went to the VC’s
office to thank him for the previous day.
Unfortunately for me, I met one of the female
panelist. I got to know her name through the
“Our Olori! (Meaning queen)how are you?”
Prof Mrs. Alabi asked.
“Fine ma” I replied and bowed in respect.
“Which one is Olori again, the VC asked her.
“Admiral is a prince nau, have you forgotten?
If he becomes King tomorrow then she will
be his queen” she said smiling at me.
(I’m sure the VC has giving her the full gist
on my relationship with Prince)
“You are right, but that’s the last post he’ll
take, he always say it, that he will never let
that mantle fall on him”
“King or no king, you are his queen already
jare” she said.
“If you need anything of which I know you
can’t need anything from me but in case you
do don’t hesitate to come to me”
“Yes ma, thank you ma”
Even prof Mrs want to get acquainted with
him. I’m very sure she needed a favour from
Prince and want to get it through because she
exchanged number with me.
“My regards to Admiral”
“I’ll do that ma”I say my good bye to them
and left the office.
After much plea from Prince, I decided to lift
my ban on our relationship and we were
back together.Though I didn’t get to see him
because he was out of the country.
Days later, He called and asked how my day
went during our conversation and I told him I
had a not too good day.
“A commercial bus driver bashed my car”
“Are you OK, hope you are not hurt?”
“No, I’m fine, its just the car”
“Ok, I’ve you called a mechanic?”
“Yes, I called my mechanic who joined us at
the scene. He said it will cost me close to
#100k to fixed the damaged part of the car. I
had to let the bus driver go because where do
I expect him to get #100k from. I already
transferred the money into the mechanic’s
account and he promised to fix it. He said
he’ll be done in one week” I explained.
“One week! so you’ll be taking cab for one
good week?” he asked
“What other choice do I have. I’ll just get a
cab man that will take me for a week” I
“OK” that was all he said.
Surpringly, the next day, I came back from
school and met two of his staff in my
compound. His PA is with him, I think that’s
why he sent them to my place.
Then my gazed shifted to the car that was
parked in my compound.
We exchanged greetings and one of them
handed me a car key.
“Your new car madam, from Admiral”
“What! This man is just..….” I said
surprisingly not even knowing what to say.
He bought me a brand new 2016 Chevrolet
I checked out my new car and I almost cry
because of excitement.
I told them to come in so I could entertain
them but they said they can’t wait, they need
to be in Abuja.
I called Prince when they left, I was just on
phone with him and I don’t know what to
say. I wasn’t expecting it at all, I mean I did
not see it coming. The other car is just a year
“Do you like your new car” he broke the
“Prince I’m speechless, I love it thanks so
“Ok, I’m glad you love it”
“What should I do with the other car at the
mechanic workshop?” I asked him.
“It’s your car do you can do anything you like
“I’ll see you soon, I’ll be back next week. I
really miss you”
“I miss you too, I’ll be expecting you”
“I love you my Princess”
“I love you too my Prince” I said and the line
I lie on my bed, I think I’m the luckiest girl
on earth. I couldn’t asked for more.
My Mum visited me some months later, I
tried to make her not to come, but she was
adamant. She came and saw where I was
She checked out everywhere. She got to my
kitchen and saw all my kitchen gadgets. She
opened my freezer and shaked her head. She
proceeds to my store, she saw my foodstuff
that I cant even finish in a year and She stood
for minutes in awe, she then came back to
the sitting room.
“Anike, look at where you are staying, see
your sitting room, she said pointing from 42”
plasma TV to my home theatre an other
expensive interior décor that caught her
attention. She continued.
“An ordinary student. You even have a brand
new car. Some people who have worked for
years did not even have half of all the things
you have in this apartment”
I just stood quietly starring at her, I dare not
sit because she’s also standing.
“Anike….. Omo Eni oose agbafo o? kaso wale.
(Meaning: your child is not into laundry and
he’s bringing clothes home)
She continued. “And if I ask now, you will
say it’s Admiral, is it possible for one man to
do all this for you. I’m sure you are into runs,
because that’s the norm among you girls of
“Mummy I’m not into runs…
“Then swear on your father’s grave”
“Mummy!” I stamped my feet on the tiled
“I’m sure there’s something between you and
that your Admiral that I never met”
“Mummy, I’ve told you times without
number, that man is my guardian Angel”
“OK, we shall see, sha don’t destroy your
future, I beg you in the name of God” She
said and left me in the sitting room. My mum
left for Lagos the following day.
