As the ray of sun shines towards my direction I gradually opened my eyes .
As I stretch my hands I mistakenly touch Kate and Immediately I turned to check if she have woken up but she was still sleeping like an Angel..
I laid there as I stare at her innocent face and her cute pouted mouth, she really look beautiful when sleeping. I used my my hands to remove some of her hair that cover part of her face and just immediately she start moving her body and just when I was about to turn back she held my hands with her eyes half closed..
and then she said
“where are u running to, I already caught you… she said and opened her eyes fully..
oh my God that means she caught me staring at her..
em..m..I wasn’t running , I just wanna stand up…I said
” OK if u say so, anyways good morning ..she greeted
“morning to u too….I replied
And just before I forget you are making breakfast this morning right…I said immediately
” huh…yea its true…I made the promise and you will see that I make delicious food better than you…she said and I laughed .
we were both downstairs , she was In the kitchen while I was In the parlour watching some movies..
I was in the kitchen preparing the food.
my whole attention is on the food , I have to prove to Bryan that I cook better than him .
it didn’t take much time the food was ready and all done . then I went to the sitting room to call him.
he was serious watching a movie and when I checked the movie it looks Interesting but I don’t have time for that now ,maybe later.
Bryan …I called ( I think this is the first time am calling his name ever since we got married…
” food is ready…I said like an house wife..
“oh you mean our judgement food is ready… he joked
” yea whatever just come and have a taste and you will confirmed that I cook better than you…I said
“oh really!! he said and stood up as he walks toward the dinning…
Have already served the food so am just waiting for him to have a taste of it..
I watched him as he grab the food closer to him..he took the spoon and dish a spoon full Into his mouth …
he chews it for some seconds , he look at me but didn’t say anything and took another one , he did again the third time and I was beginning to be anxious, what’s happening why is he not saying anything…
does he want me to just stay here and watch him consume the whole food without saying anything..
After the third spoon , he drank little water and drop the spoon then faced me…
within me I was so anxious…
did he like it or not..
umm…umm..u.mm…he cleared his throat and then put on a serious face and then all of a sudden he smiled and said
” that was damn delicious…you are such a great cook…. he said but that’s not what I really want to hear
“And????….I said nervously
he looked at me still with the smiling face and then said ” And you cook more better than me”
“yeppe….that’s what I wanna hear…I said out loud and we both laughed.
