Dr. Cupid says hi…

It’s a few minutes past 4 o’clock, 4.18pm to be precise and I am still in the office . By this time the sun is supposed to be or rather expected to be falling for the moon. But noooo, it’s still scourging hot and to make it worse it’s on a Monday. Just 4 days after Valentine’s.

Of late the rains have been playing hard to get and they were winning, the Chelsea 6-0 defeat is nothing to compare it to haha ๐Ÿ˜‚ ย (pun very much intended). Now you get a rough picture of my situation, back to my story.

Noella, one of my younger sisters had just sent me a picture, one that changed my day for the better. I let out a slightly big scream from my corner desk at the office and then I quickly cover my mouth with my hands and try to act normal but my body isn’t cooperating. All of a sudden I’m feeling super hot, it’s like I’m sweating but I’m not, my knees are weak and it’s like the time wasn’t moving. It’s 4.20pm.

Fast forward to home time. I leave the office in such a rush. At the stage the matatus are no where to be seen. At this moment I’m legit sweating. One finally shows up and we’re off to town. I’m not sure if I should buckle my safety belt incase of anything because I wanted to be safe and in one piece by the time I was getting home. But then putting the seat belt on and then removing it was just too much work for my lazy self, so I just put it across my laps. I don’t know why but it felt safe.

Luckily there’s no traffic until we were past Posta just before Railways. The makangaย (tout) goes like , “Wale wa haraka mshuke na jam.” (those in a hurry to alight while there’s still traffic). Haha I’m the first one out, I’m extra cautious of even how I walk lest I just get hit, maybe that’s why I didn’t see Audrey, ย Sarah and Fred aka The Shark family pass me the first time. I was very absent mined.

I am now in the house, 3 hours 26 minutes later. It’s 7.46pm, I walk straight to Noella and ask her for the envelope she’d sent me a picture of. This envelope is the closest thing I now have to Bill, my Chocolate Magic ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‰ . Bill is currently in training (strict one) where phones are not allowed. Last time we spoke was 3 weeks ago.ย  My heart is smiling that the letter travelled over 8,000miles. Hence you can picture all the faces I am making while reading the ๐Ÿ–ค letter.

It is now sleep time. My sleep was characterised with intervals of me patting the letter with eyes closed just to confirm it was still intact.

It’s Tuesday, I leave the house at around 6.30am with the letter inside my bag pack. This is my new pocket-novel.
