She stood there staring at the both of us. I almost yelled at
Elliot but I changed my mind on as second thought. I wanted
to know if Mille would be able to know the difference
between Elliot and I. Elliot and I just leaned on the
doorposts of our rooms.
Gloria was having the fun of the morning. I could tell Mille’s
brain was working really fast. She walked up to me, stood
still for a while, shook her head and turned to Elliot’s door. I
felt like a hot slap was plastered on my cheek from above.
Gloria’s face fell but Mille didn’t seem to notice it. She was
moving ever so gracefully towards Elliot. The fool was
smiling triumphantly at her.
She took his hand in hers and looked at it for a while
“Niel,why on earth did you call my mum this morning? If you
wanted me to come over,you should have just called me.”
She asked him.
I was about to talk but Gloria put a finger to her lips
signaling me to keep mute.
“I’m sorry Mille. I called you countless times but you weren’t
picking my calls.” He answered.
“Give yourself a round of applause Elliot. I know Niel no
matter the weather.I had fun toying with your brain.”
“Whoohoo! My bae is the bomb.” I exclaimed excitedly.
“Of course I am.” She left him standing there.
“Aw accept my sympathy Elliot.” Gloria cooed.
He slammed the door shut and we burst into laughter.
“Mille, you didn’t tell me you were coming over”I sad.
“No vex. I came to pick my phone and to see that old
woman standing there. I told her to send it through you but
she said you were still asleep.” She said.
“I think mum’s calling me.” Gloria attempted to escape.
“So you’ve added lies to your many sins Gloria.” I said.
“I had to do it na. Mille wouldn’t have agreed to come if I
didn’t add a little spice you know?
“Go where bro? I’m the one that made her come here in the
first place so it’s only fair that I have her first.” She argued.
“See me see wahala. So if I marry her now,I’ll be sharing my
wife with my sister abi?” I folded my arms watching her in
“Niel!” Mille hit me with her elbow.
“Of course. You have to share her with me. I knew her first
and I was the one who introduced her to you.” Gloria
“Enough. I’ll stay with Gloria for a while.”
“Mille that’s unfair. I planned to take you out today.”
“And you will. While I’m with Gloria,you should shower and
have breakfast. I don’t know why you had to stay this long
“Mille’s a seer. I begged him to eat o but he was busy
working on his laptop since he woke up. I’m sure you heard
his stomach growling.” Gloria giggled.
“Fine before you fry me. I’ll go prepare.”
“Ehm bro,I think you should eat first.”
“Did you prepare food for me?” I asked.
“Oh! I haven’t even greeted mum.” Mille said and hurried to
“Your food is on the table. Stop staring at her abeg.” Gloria
“You’re so annoying Gloria. It’s a wonder to me that I still
love you.” I went downstairs to eat.I saw Elliot’s food still
covered and I smiled to myself. I was definitely going to
teach him a mid-day lesson.
I came out of Aunt Charis’ room. Gloria and Niel were both
gone. I went to Gloria’s room and she wasn’t there either. I
picked my phone from the dresser and laid down on the bed
to wait for her. She entered after a few minutes,panting for
“Where were you?” I asked.
“Around the house. I had a little job to do.” She said with a
twinkle in her eyes. The same twinkle Niel’s eyes had when
he was up to something.
“Gloria what did you do?”
“Chill baby. Just trust me okay?” She was smiling.
“I just hope whatever you did isn’t connected to me. If it Is,
I’ll finish you.”
