It’s was as if Saturday will not come, all the days was kind of slow, i had make an arrangement with Peter, one of my course mate to help me pick Ayomide as soon as she got to the junction next to our barracks in order to avoid security check at the gate. He assured me that there will be no f–k up and that he is going to carry out mission perfectly.
On Thursday, i decided to go to a nearby market to buy fried rice ingredient, I’m very good in cooking, i learnt how to cook good food when i was staying with my aunty that attended a catering school. I’ve been rehearsing on how everything is going to look like that day, it was all funny as i was displaying in my room alone as if am crazy. That night, i called her in order to remind her if she hasn’t forget about her coming on Saturday. “Am working towards it” She replied.
On Friday, I made everything i needed available, i purchased a kilo of turkey at the mami market (mini market right in front of the barracks gate), I fried it and preserved it inside my refrigerator. Later in the evening, i was arranging some of the music I’m going to play when she comes. I heard my phone ringing from the bedroom, “maybe she is the one calling ooo” i murmured while i rush to pick it up. I look at the screen and it was Ayomide, i took a deep breath before i picked the call.
Me: Hmmm! Baby Girl…
Ayomide: How far
Me: Am cool, U?
Me: How u doing?
Ayomide: Great! I just want to tell u that i will be coming over tomorrow
Me: ****Very Happy**** Waoo! What time are u coming?
Ayomide: Hmmm! Around 10:00am
Me: Haba! 10? “Y can’t you make it 08:00am.” I requested happily
Ayomide: ****Smiling**** “Why don’t you ask me to start coming by 04:00am” She replied jokingly.
Me: Ok! Let make it 09:00am
Ayomide: Ok i will try
Me: Alright! Honestly I can’t wait to see you
Ayomide: ***Smiling*** Tomorrow is here na
Me: I just want to close my eyes and see you by the time i will open it
Me: ****Laughing**** Am serious!
Ayomide: Just chill! Tomorrow is around the corner
Me: Alright dear
Ayomide: So what are you going to prepare for me
Me: Anything you want
Ayomide: ****Smiling**** Fried rice and chicken
Me: ****Thank God ooo**** Done!
Ayomide: Funny you. Where will u get it from
Me: Wait and see
Ayomide: Ok! I’ve heard you
Me: I have to be on my way to tattoo now
“Tattoo is a gathering mandatory for all soldiers in the barracks, late in the evening every blessed day”
Ayomide: Alright! Start going so that you won’t be late
Me: Bye Dear
I couldn’t held how joyful i am, it was as if a President’s daughter is coming to pay me a visit, i just can wait to see tomorrow. After tattoo that night, i met with peter and briefed him about how everything is going to work out as planed. I gave him Ayomide’s phone number, do not call her until you get to the that junction tomorrow. “No problem” he replied. “I will call and inform you as soon as she got to the place so that you will go and pick her up” i concluded. Peter’s block and mine is a little bit close to each other, he made way to his house when he got to the junction of house.
I slept around 08:40pm, only to woke up and found out that is just 11:50pm. “So i have been sleep for just 3 hours since i slept.” I murmured angrily while coming out of the toilet and i went back to bed.
