I stared at him with so much suspense until he finally spoke out.
“Daddy…” He walked towards me.
“Why not cook for yourself tonight. And keep this portion for us. So you can eat to your fill. It’ll be okay that way.”
He stated clearly.
What? I paused.
Thinking about what he just said. It won’t be a bad idea either. I get to eat enough.. and not this little food with how hungry I’m feeling.
I stared Back at the three suspiciously.
“No one gets to taste my food when I’m done”.
“We won’t.” They chorused.
“You guys don’t actually like my food do you?” I asked as they shooked their head simultaneously.
“No one liked it. But why did you guys keep up with it.? You could have just told me”
They can’t possibly be serious!
“Not like we have a choice.” Noel answered …. And my face dropped.
“Fine! No problem at all. From now on, you guys get to cook for yourselves. .. since my efforts aren’t appreciated.”
“Okay fine. We are sorry. We were only trying to catch some fun. Your food is the best ever”
A small smile stretched on my lips.
“Okay.. since my food is the best and the Three of you are okay with it. What do you say then? I dish out enough for myself to eat and cook for us tomorrow”
“What? Dad!” Janietta shrieked.
“No! No! No!” They chorused.
“But you just said my food is the best..”
“Yes it’s actually the best. But we don’t like your kind of ‘Best’ Food.”
Noel spoke out sharply. Stressing the ‘Best’
I stared at them with a *Don’t worry look*
And then dipped a spoonful into my mouth.
Oh! I chewed on the food and tasted the flavors. This is so good.. I moaned out a little to the yummy taste and took another spoon.
I can’t really seem to get enough of it.
In a quest to take another spoonful, my eyes suddenly met with their piercing gaze and i muttered a ‘sorry’ to them and dropped the plate.
Wishing myself more of the food.
I drank a cup of water and wiped off my mouth as I withdrew some eggs and a loaf of bread from the storage-shelf.
Let me prepare myself enough to eat tonight.
☃️ Next Morning ☃️
“Wake up Dad! We gonna be late for school !” Noel shouted into my ears as I laid numb on the bed.
My ears re-echoed his words and waved of headache eloped me.
“Dad junior is crying.. he needs a change of diaper” Janietta ran into my room with a crying junior and placed him close to me on the bed and Junior’s deafening cries almost had my head pulling off.
“Seriously???!” I cried out.
“Can’t I for once in my life have a good morning rest”
The words came out from my mouth like a teary-tone.
“Daddy! I want to pee” Kayla ran to my bedside.. raising up her nightie with just her pants on.
I stared angrily at her.. she wants to pee? Don’t she know the way to the toilet?
“Pee on yourself” I hissed out.
“Okay. ” She Nodded. And like an obedient child, she released those hot liquids and it freely flowed to the ground.
“Kayla!!” I shouted and she jerked back I’m fear.
“But you told me'” she pouted. Almost in tears.
I ran my hand through my hair sitting upright on the bed.
I stared at crying junior and then to her who later joined in the crying competition.
“Who’s gonna clean that up huh?”
“Definitely not me” janietta shrugged. Walking out of the room.
“Me neither” Noel added and walked out too.
“Seriously guys!” I shouted as they left..
“I’m definitely gonna get you guys a nanny one of these days” I said aloud and I guess they didn’t hear me. If not, another heated argument would have ensued.
I stared breathlessly at Kayla and then to junior. I just don’t know what to do with them.????????♂️
☃️ Lunch at Workplace ☃️
My eyes were still heavy and almost poking out it’s socket as I sat there alone eating my lunch.
I’m so tired and all I want now is a little break for a nap. But that can’t be possible on a busy day, can it?
I stared up and I saw Alicia standing before me with her tray of food. She placed it on my table.
“How you doing Alicia” I asked. Digging my fork into my food.
“I’m good. What’s up? You look stressed”
“Is it that obvious?” I dropped my spoon and focused on her.
How did she know I’m stressed out? It must really be obvious.
“Yeah.. I’m so tired right now. My morning was so hectic. The kids and all” I waved off the words from my mouth. Sounding seriously tired.
“Oh. I see” she paused and then smiled a little.
“David, how are your kids like?”
She asked and I stopped chewing on my food.. quickly taken aback by such question.
My kids? Huh! They are a thick pain I’m the As$. Kill’joys. Annoying! Call them parasites… Or anything worth trouble.
“They are so lovely'” I replied instead with a fake smile.
Picking my glass-filled cup of water and began gulping down it’s content.
“That’s interesting. I want to meet them”..
She suddenly spoke out… Causing the water to choke me as I unintentionally spat out everything to her face.
????????????????…. David and his children ehnn.. cat and rat????
So Alicia wants to meet them abi ????????..
