My
Valentine Experience
14th
of February 2020: A Day I Will Never Forget.
‘Hey
baby’
Mike called me so early in the morning to wish me
Happy Valentine’s Day. He began to flatter me and call me all sort of sweet
names.
‘So
where are we going today’
I asked him without any hesitation.
‘Anywhere
you want to go baby, just tell me’
‘I’ll
think about it and call you back’
I replied, he told
me goodbye and hanged up the phone. I started to think of where we could go but
nothing came to my mind. I took a shower, got dressed, wore my makeup,
sanitized myself and I stood by the balcony to enjoy the cool breeze.
Where can I go on this special day?’ I asked myself. A thought came
to my mind saying today will be a normal day for me if I don’t go anywhere. I
got into my car and drove to Mike’s house.
The gate was wide
opened and everywhere looked so quiet.   Baby, you there?’ I yelled and yelled all
to no response. I checked all the rooms to be sure he wasn’t playing games but
no one was there and there was no sign of any Valentine’s day decoration.
Where could Mike have gone to?’ I asked myself. I decided to call
him but his number wasn’t going through. I was about to leave when I saw a note
on the table which read:
Grace, I’m really sorry but I don’t think
our relationship can work out anymore. I’m really really sorry it had to end
this way. I knew you’d come here that’s why I left a note cos I didn’t know how
to tell you earlier this morning. I’m so sorry.
I couldn’t believe
what I just read. How can Mike do this to me after everything we’ve been
through together? I got into my car and drove home crying and thinking of what
Mike did to me. I managed to get home safe. I could not drive well because I
was in so much pain. I drove through the gate and parked my car. I was on my
way in when I saw a note at my door step which read;
You’re the best thing that has ever happened
to me’
  Love, Mike
‘What’s
going on here?
’ I asked myself as I took another
step forward. On entering the living room, I saw flowers everywhere, roses
shaped in heart, chocolates and wine all over the table and candles enough to
lighten up the atmosphere. The surprise was overwhelming. I got to my bedroom
and saw something special on my bed. A question written with flowers. The
question every woman wants to be asked. ‘Will
you marry me?’
. That’s the question the flowers wrote on the bed and I
screamed ‘ÝES’ without caution. Mike caught me unaware and held me in
his arms. I was so happy. The day went from bad to good and I couldn’t control
myself. My Valentine’s day was unforgettable!!!!!!
‘Blessing!
Blessing! Blessing! Wake up my friend it’s past 12 already’

I opened my eyes and saw my mum splash water in my face. ‘So it was a dream???’ I was so disappointed but at least I had a
nice Valentine experience in my dream. ‘Wait
o, but how come my name was Grace??’
I asked myself and thought of another
mystery to uncover. I burst into laughter and went back to sleep.
Happy Valentines’
Weekend.
