“Daddy! Daddy! Wake up!” I feel little hands tugging at my sheets.
I’m not gonna answer whoever it is. Today is Saturday. I deserve some sleep for Pete’s sake. I earned it. Maybe I’ll just lay still and fake snoring sounds and hope to God the person goes away.
“YEPA!” I sprung in an instant from the bed and heads straight to the nearest exit. The bathroom door was ajar. I quickly ente red and shut the door almost immediately. Panting heavily, I take a look at my surroundings. The place was exactly the way we left it. No curling shit. Okay that’s a good sign. The snake didn’t follow me here. I heaved a sigh of relief and then began thinking if the person who called me escaped as well.
“Dad, seriously? I was joking. I was only trying to get you up. You shoulda seen your face when you jumped to the bathroom. Please come out.” AWW MEHN. I opened the door and stare annoyingly at my grinning 8-year old daughter. What I will do without her?
“I got you again Daddy!”
Yea. I remembered the last time she punked me. She told me her mother was drowning in the pool. I ran like a fool, tripped over a stool and got there only to meet my wife as fine and as fresh as ever, perfecting a backstroke. This must stop…damnit!
“Yes baby you did. But how would you feel if Daddy refuses to buy you Ice-Cream?” I started licking my fingers, one-by-one, trying to paint a visual picture in her head. With the look on her face, I aced my plan.
“You…you won’t?” she asked huskily
“Yes Victoria, I won’t”
“But dad i…” I see tears welling up
“I got you too!” I quickly cut in.
I couldn’t follow up my plan anymore. Kids! They always have their way. I started laughing. She joins in. I knelt down and hug her tightly. I smell her hair and moaned softly. Strawberry Hair cream I think. Her mom is doing a good job.
“Dad, I think I can’t breathe”
“OOOO Sorry” I loosened my grip. Her hazel eyes stares at me. Just like her mother –which reminds me.
“Baby, where’s your mom and brothers?”
“Brother Mike and Gab are playing video game in their room and Mummy’s in the kitchen. They won’t let me play. They said PES2044 is not for ladies to play.”
“Don’t mind them you hear? I’ll teach you how to play it and you can play and win them okay? Now run along.” As she scurries off she stops abruptly.
“Happy Independence Day Daddy” Hmm today is October 1st?
“Happy Independence Day Darling” and she takes off to her room or wherever a little girl go to these days. I went to the bedside table, grabbed the remote to the Home Theatre and played a vintage song and bent down to do some push-ups.
“Nor be you I carry come
But na you I go carry go
