When Mark was done talking on phone,he came back where I was seated and we continued our chat. He apologized for the phone call. I told him I was cool and didnt have a problem.
He asked me to answer the question he asked me earlier about what I like doing.
Well am a free spirited person and very out going and not afraid of taking risks so I enjoy anything that makes me happy like adventuring and exploring new things…
My answer might have sounded like good news to him and he called it a real definition and I just laughed it off. We talked about so many things and I was hoping and praying he doesnt mention the part of my estranged mother and his mother trying to hook us up and thankfully he didn’t.
From North Mead we drove back to Kabulonga, I told him to drop me in Marshlands, he asked why, ” that’s where I stay its near school.” He asked if its within the school vicinity as he didnt want to get lost on his way back. I told him not to stress as the place was just near UNZA. We drove to my crib, webmet Lulu by the gate. She walked to the car, I introduced her to Mark. After the introduction Mark asked me to prepare myself that he will be coming back later to pick me up so we can finish our adventure. I said my goodbyes and went inside.
Lulu; mmmmmm icho Mwila the babe… Ala sure you have market… If you were food in a food parlor you would be the most ordered one.
Me; Lulu mwana mutonga wamu Copperbelt what’s your problem?
Lulu; nothing….. I’m just wondering who that dude is ninshi ni no retreat no surrender?.. Just yesterday Francis wanted to kill you, you haven’t learned a lesson.. Do you want him to kill you?
Me; Francis will not kill me besides me and him are now on a break . I just want to be away from him for sometime until we have sorted our issues. He needs to see either a counselor or psychiatrist as I cannot deal with his madness anymore.
Lulu; he surely does need help…. . . . anyways forget about him…. So tell me who is that guy?. What does he do? Who is he?
Me; mayo you are asking too many questions… I already introduced you to him… What more do you want to hear?
Lulu; where did you guys meet and since when did you start liking chubby guys? I thought you hated them.
Me; come on Lulu who says I like the guy? Besides did I say I hate all chubby guys?
Lulu; am still waiting for the details.. From which river did you fish this one now? I need to go there asap with my fishing net… I might be lucky and catch one as well..
Me; but Lulu you are my worst Nigerian movie I have ever come across… I met that guy through my aunt. He happens to be the son to one of her friends in UK and apparently my aunt and his mama have joined hands wanting to hook us up.
Lulu; Jesus Christ Of Nazareth I love your aunt… You mean the dude is not Zambian? Wow your aunt is so cool .. You mean she did that for you… Wow I wish I had an aunt like yours.
Me; forget it man my aunt is cool kwisa!!! Dont you know that arranged things don’t work…by the way the dude is a Zambian based in UK…
Lulu; mmmmmm Mwila so ngati niwebo ati its love!
Me; exactly my reason… My dear love rules… I can’t be with someone who doesnt love me… ati kaili our guardians want us to be together.
Lulu; sometimes love is not everything…
Me; that’s your theory and I have mine..
Lulu; ohhhhhhhh muzakafa na love imweh…
Me; shut up…. I have a date with Charles so let me go prepare myself.
Lulu; ohhhhhhhhh uko one madam expert ..
Speaking of the devil my phone flushed with an incoming call from charles.
Charles; hey can we meet now?..
Charles; you will find me at Nando’s (Manda Hill).
Charles; bip me when you start off
Me; I will.
Charles; ok bye.
I went to to take a quick bath…. Dressed up… Didnt want to waste time so I went for a short dress a jacket and boots… Did a bit of make up and called ba Richard.. Thank God he was just near by. He came to pick me up within 10 minute we drove off to Manda Hill.
I spotted Charles at Nandos.. he was glad to see me and gave me a hug. I asked him where his buddy was. . . he replied saying he remained home because he was tired. Charles tried to order food for me but I refused.
We waited for some guy who showed up after 15 minutes and we all got in Charles’s car and left. Charles drove to Kalundu. We went in some nice yard and he asked me to follow him inside. I must confess that I was kind of scared. First Charles asks me to meet up with him and doesnt come to pick me.. Secondly we waited for some stranger who he didnt even introduce me to and thirdly we drove to a place Charles had never mentioned to me and now he is asking me to go in with him. Aikona my life is too precious am still enjoying… Who knows maybe these two want to kill me. Charles lifted me in his arms and took me inside.. When we got inside he put me on the couch and asked the guy we were with who he addressed as Kelvin to give him the keys… Yehoval Lesa nafikwako ine te sacrifice fye iyi.????
Kelvin handed the keys to Charles who then handed the keys over to me.
Me; keys……what’s are they for?
Charles; from now on this is your house.
Me; what do you mean this is my house?
Charles; you will be staying here…. From this minute onward this is your new home and don’t worry about your friends.. This house is a three bedroomed house so the three of you will have enough space.
Me; Charles you didnt have to… Am comfortable where I am and am not complaining..
Charles; off course you are not complaining but am complaining because am not comfortable with where you stay and coming with my friends there. That place is just too small. You will be much better here.
Me; you would have just said rather than doing this and you should have informed me before doing anything.
Charles; Mwila the girl with a golden heart.. Always worrying and thinking of others.. Can’t you for once think about yourself? I don’t have a problem doing what I did.. You are just so precious to me and you complete me and I really like you… You are a nice person… Please think of this as nothing but a gift from me to you for what you have been to me.. You have brought so much happiness in my life and this is a token of appreciation from me.. . Please … .pretty please don’t say no.
Me; let me talk to my friends first…
Charles; come on do you surely need to do that?
Me; yes I have to.
Charles; alright go ahead.
Me; thank you.
I stepped outside to call Lulu and she was quick to pick up.
Lulu; well well why are you calling me? Have you been beaten?
Me; fuseki ……. . . on the contrary . . . . . . Charles has found us a house in Kalundu area.
Lulu; what did you say? I think I didnt clearly get what you said… Please rephrase your statement for me.
Me; clears throat . . . . Charles has found a place where he wants us to be staying… So am calling to find out if you are cool with it and if you are then I will accept.
Lulu; God of thunder and lightening!!!! This typical bemba girl will kill me before my time. . . So you mean to tell me that you haven’t accepted that offer.
Me; come on Lulu stop being dramatic. . . . I just need your opnion on this matter.
Lulu; my dear you know me now and you can guess what my answer will be. Let me start packing our things we are shifting today. Thank you so Mwila you are the best thing that has ever happened to mankind.
Me; napapata Lulu don’t start packing yet.. We need to come sit down and talk it.
Lulu; sit down where and talk about what? Why did you call me in the first place? Please pass the phone over to Charles so I can thank him. Uyu Mwaume pa baume.
Me; ohhhh Lulu you are insane…. just hold on for Charles as I take the phone to him.
Lulu; ok I will wait . .
Charles; hello my crazy friend. . .
Honestly speaking I don’t even know why I wanted Lulu’s opnion on this issue, that was like asking a drunkard if they want some beer. She was right indeed I already knew what her answer would be. Charles passed the phone back to me after talking to Lulu.
Me; yes mwalanda naba Chale?
Lulu; yes ala am so excited I tell you. I can’t wait to move into our new home. . . . . wait just hold on for a second I think i just heard someone walk in.. ..let me check.
Me; ok but this is not your grandma’s airtime.
Lulu and I continued talking on phone while she went to see whosoever had come in and the next minute I heard Lulu screaming, shouting and cursing. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
WTF!!!!!!! Who could this be that would attack Lulu in broad day light??
