I knew Jumoke would be shocked to see my mum and I in her house. Thing is, I had to do what I had to do. If we are all going to be moving on we should do so on a good note.
Jumoke and her mum invited us in, we did and made ourselves comfprtable on their sofa. I looked over at my mum and it was so obvious she was very uncomfortable. This woman sef. She cannot just act like she is accumstomed to the lifestlye of the middle class. Now,I am sounding like her. After a few moments of awkward silence, I spoke up.
“Jumoke, I know you and my mum have not been the best of friends and so my mum has something she wants to tell you. Mum”
I looked at my mum and I know she was having a hard time but this was the only way I could at least get myself into Jumy’s good books again.
“Jumoke, this is hard for me to say-” My mum pauses and looks at me. I motion for her to her to continue “I am sorry for all the times I have insulted you. I am sorry about the times I made fun of your background. I respect you as a person and I don’t think you are a gold digger”
My mum looked at me again and I nod my head. She stands up and says “I’ll be in the car”. Jumoke stands up and tells her she appreciates me it and apologizes to. She sees my mum off to the door and closes it behind her.
I look at Jumoke and I can tell she is happy. If only she knew that my mother did not mean any of those words she said. According to my mum, her opinons about Jumoke will not change and she did this because I begged her to. Inasmuch as I want to move on and walk away from it all, my feelings for Jumy are still strong.
Jumoke’s mum excuses us and goes into the room and as soon as she does. Jumoke speaks
“I think what your mum did was cool. Thank you. Even though I know she didn’t mean it” We both smiled. I love Jumy’s smile it is what I describe as captivating.
“Well, at least it counted for something” I told her “Goodbye Jumy” I told her
“Bye Tope” She said. I go over to her and give her one last hug.
But somehow, my lips find a way to hers and hence the bess kiss of my life…
There is more… Watch out for the next installment
