See all episodes here »


i wake up to an empty bed wondering how i got here. I remember

getting angry at Steven, regretting it and using the thunder as an

excuse to cuddle with him. I also remember Steven singing different

lullaby for me but that's where i draw a blank. I must have fallen

asleep and Steven must have carried me to bed. Did he sleep beside me

last night?.Where is he then? . I get off the bed to look for him and

that's when i notice a tray on the bed side table. The tray contains a

cup of green tea, some biscuits and a written note.

Make sure you drink this for your morning sickness. Both the tea and

the biscuit are made of ginger. I hear it helps.

P.S. Will be back in an hour. Don't miss me too much. *winks*

i cant help it. I burst into laughter. Maybe he failed the food test

but its so clear that he cares about me. I drink the tea and eat a few

of the biscuits. My stomach seems settle as i perform my early morning


I order some bread from the kitchen downstairs and eat it with my

ice-cream while waiting for Steven. Am almost done with breakfast when

Steven works in.

"Steven!" i yell excitedly and run to embrace him.

"wow. Someone is happy to see me this morning"he says and i laugh.

"well you deserve that hug for the biscuits and tea

. I feel fine"

"wow. That's good. I think you are also going to like what i have

planned today"he says

"really? What is it?"

"okay, my sis texted me this morning about jessica's birthday and i

know you don't have anything here to wear that is appropriate for the

party. So--"

"you bought me clothes?!" i ask excited

"no"he says and my face falls.

"what i was going to say before you interrupted is, i got you a

private clothes stylist and she will be here soon". We hear a knock at

the door and Steven smiles.

"that must be her. Tell me you are excited because i am. I get to see

you try different clothes till we find something perfect for

tomorrow"he ramble on as he goes to the door to let the stylist in. I

am excited just like him because duh, what girl wouldn't love to do

dress up in front of her man?. Not this girl. I walk to the living

room to see a guy day in a rack of dresses. A stunning lady dressed

fully in designer everything walks in.

"hi Mr Steven, I'm zoe. The stylist you hired"she says and smile

longingly at Steven. I know that look because I always have that look.

I walk in between them and smile brightly.

"and am toni, his pregnant fiance"

"toni, isn't that like a guy's name?"she whispers and i gasp. Why are

all the stylist I've met so obnoxious. Steven must probably sense my

boiling state because he drag me behind him.

"zoe. Thanks for coming on such short notice. This is antonia, my

babies' mama and i want you to find a dress she can wear to a child's

birthday party. Some not too formal"he says

"leave that to me. I know just the perfect dress for her" she says and

move to the rack. Steven moves to sit on the couch as he watch zoe

dress me. All the dresses i have tried so far are either too tight for

tummy or have too much cleavage. Steven is obviously amused by this.

He finally stands up and walk to the rack. He moves through hangers

and brings a dress out. Its a red lacy trapeze dress with an

asymmetric hem. The neckline is high so there won't be cleavage


"i love red, i love lace and i think you will look fabulous in this.

Go try"he says and pushes me to the bathroom. I try it on and check my

reflection on the mirror. Wow. It feels so soft. I walk out of the

bathroom and Steven stands and walks to me.

"you look amazing"he says and peck me lips. Yes! Take that zoe. Zoe

clears her throat and Steven turns to her.

"she'll have this dress. Get her shoes that will go with it and

whatever else she'll need. Just no necklace. I got that"he says.

It doesn't take long to find the perfect shoe. I choose  silver

peep-toe pumps with ankle straps. They are just gorgeous and not too

high. I am already so excited about tomorrow. For accessories, zoe

chooses ornami open twist fishhook sterling silver drop earrings. Who

knew a earring could have a long name?. After about two hours, i have

all I'll need for tomorrow's party and We bid zoe goodbye. We relax

with the television set the rest of the day. We are currently sitting

on the couch after having dinner.

"someone is going to look gorgeous tomorrow."Steven says

"well thank you"i stand up and curtsey.

"i don't think nelly would like you stealing her spotlight"he says and

we laugh. I stare longingly at the shoes. So beautiful. They look like

they sparkle in the light. "oh no!"i say

"what's wrong?"

"i chose peep-toe shoes."


"i have to have my nails done!"

"i don't think we can find someone to do it for you now. Its already

late. Cant you do it yourself?"

"well i can. But i don't think my hands can reach my toes anymore"i

say pointing to my protruding stomach.

"oh. I think i can do it for you. Nothing a few tutorials on YouTube

cant solve"he says and brings his phone out. We watch some nails

tutorial videos online. Steven goes out for some minutes and comes

back with red nail polish. I wonder where he got it.

"so are you ready?"he asks and i nod.

"good, now lie back and place your feet on my lap"he says and i do it


"are you sure, you can do this?"i ask timidly

"trust me"he says then left my left feet up. Its ticklish and i squirm.

"babe, you have to stay still so i won't make a mistake."

"but its ticklish"i giggle and he shake his head. We battle for almost

an hour before Steven finish both my feet and it actually looks great.

He volunteers to do my fingernails but i thank him.

Read " Mirage " by the same author ( Ameh juliet )

. He's done so much

already. I can handle my fingers on my own.

"thank God. My neck is killing me. I have to sleep now. Don't stay up

too late" he says and walks to the bedroom. Wow, he is presumptuous.

What makes him think i want to sleep on the same bed with him?. I

shake my head and paint my fingers. By the time, i am done, i am so

sleepy. I drag myself to bed to see Steven sleeping and an idea hits

me. I g the nail polis from the living room and paint all Steven

toenails. He is going to flip when he sees this tomorrow.
