Adesola🌼

“stand straight,

Don’t slouch,

Chest out,

Shoulders straight,

And smile”

I tell myself,

In order to get noticed you have to be noticable,

…..”don’t forget to apply the shiny lip stick and put on your most expensive and gorgeous wig, and that red dress and silver shoes,

You’re a hot cake and you need to start acknowledging that.

You have to be sparkling and shinning.”

As I stare at myself in the mirror,

I like what I see.

I continue,

“You are strong,

You are beautiful,

Smart and super successful.

You are worthy of Chris’s love and attention,

and any other man you please.”

I tell myself this as I walk to my car,

“Carriage is key” I keep reminding myself as I drive down to the office.

“Good morning Adesola,”

The security man calls as I drive into the car park.

“Good morning Haruna,” I reply as sweet as I can.

The sun seems to be shining brighter than usual, surprisingly after the heavy rain of yesterday, giving everywhere a warm feeling.

As I walk past the department of External affairs,

I see Joyce and Folakemi having their regular gossip session and wave at them as I walk past to Chris’s office,

Carrying on my shoulders all the confidence in the world,

I repeat all the words in my head and try to replay in my head all that I had rehearsed yesterday, “breathe”, I tell myself,

“Breathe…..and smile”.

I begin to walk faster,

And as I sight Chris,

all my confidence and composure disappears.

His brown eyes, his wonderful figure,

I begin to imagine myself in his arms,

Oh those strong arms

His flashes his bright smile at me and calls out, interrupting me from my thoughts,

“Hey Adesola”,

I begin stutter,

“H-h-he-he-hey Chris”

He keeps starting at me,

Oh God,

Those eyes,

Those majestic eyes,

I don’t notice when I begin to drool,

“Adesola!, Adesola!!”, he calls and shakes me once again from my thoughts,

“So what do you think about that idea” he continues,

“umm, yeah, it’s good”, I say,

Good, he says.
