See all episodes here »

The first one week went as smooth as possible, I tried every best to avoid precious troubles, thank God tola has gone back to her parent house, and as for melvin I hardly hardly see him these days.. He leaves early and comes back at night …
The house has been in a bit of peace since tola left to assist her dad in controlling thier multimillion company since she is the only daughter.
Though I could not still fathom why I haven’t been seeing melvin and what has been keeping him busy, but I saw it as an opportunity to ease my crush in him…..
Not until that faithful Friday, I knew why melvin has really not been around…
We were in the kitchen as usual when chief called all the workers for an announcement ..
Senator: Jude call the attention of all the workers.. He said referring to one of the bodyguards….
Joke: Did you just hear that… . She asked mama femi anxiously….
Me: Confused… What could be so important that senator wants to announce ..
Mama femi: That I really can’t say…. She said standing akimbo….
Nkechi: What else could it be if not the wedding between tola and melvin…
Me: So soon.. I shouted.
No that can’t be

. I said to myself…. As melvin given up that easily…
I was lost in my thought when jude knocked at the kitchen door…
Jude: Your attentions are needed please…
Mama femi responded, we removed our apron and marched outside and met a full gathering….
I was surprised to see melvin, precious and even tola, together with chief Mrs…
What could this be all about…
Could it really be what nkechi said
No way!!!
Senator: Good afternoon to you all
Afternoon sir… We all responded.
Senator: Am really happy to be in your midst today… It been a while and am sure most of you would be surprised why this meeting us being called… But it’s for the best. . he said smiling. .
There was confusion on every workers face, even me myself was expecting the worst…
Senator: I want to announce to you all that my son melvin would be launching his company at ikoyi tomorrow… He said graciously….. .
On hearing that everyone screamed happily… I was the happiest, not because of the launching, but because it was not what I was expecting, everyone was happy at the announcement… I could see tola holding melvin who was busy smiling.. I felt jealous, but I have made up my mind about melvin, yet am still not finding it easy…..
I was lost in my thought not until mama femi tapped me….
Mama femi: I guess you are happy now… She said smiling…
I just nod my head and smile….
Senator: Thank you, and we will also be opening his mansion at admiralty next week Saturday …
Wow… This is serious, I said to myself….
So melvin already own a company and house at his young age….
Hmmmm money is good ooo
There was noise everywhere cus of the good news… I was very much happy to him, but at the same time am seriously gonna miss him when he’s gone…
Every worker took turn in congratulating him..
Mama femi hugged him tightly…. Hmmm she is the only one that have the right to do so… I just stood watching the merriment……
Mama femi pinched me… Won’t you congratulate melvin.
Me: Is that necessary… I asked
Mama femi: Of course… Or arent you happy for such success …
Me: Haba, why would you say such. Ofcourse i am.
Mama femi: Then do the right thing ….
I sluggishly head to where melvin and tola stood hands in hands ..
Me: Congratulations sir.
Melvin: Thanks keji… Hope you are good….. He smiled. .
Me: Yes sir…..
Melvin: You sure .. He asked looking straight into my eyes….
Me: yes I am. .I smiled …
I turned back and left like someone that won lottery… Hehehe… Melvin smiled at me…
Mama femi: And what’s making her smile o…
Me: Mama guess what…. I said happily
Mama femi: Like you don’t know am not good at guessing..
Me: Smiling.. Melvin smiled at me……
Mama femi: Hahahahahahahha….. She laughed…
Me: Confused. . why are you laughing nah….. I asked….
Mama femi: Is that why you are blushing, didn’t you say you have forgotten about melvin…. She folded her arms …
Me: Hmmmm….. Yes, but it’s not easy ooo
We both laughed……
It was as if I won lotto thorough out that day…. We had less work to do in the kitchen..
And the company lauching would be covered by event planners, we are just going there to eat and merry that’s all.
