'Im sorry I'm late but I'm hungry'
were his words as he stood at my door
sweat glistening on his chocolate body
even though the sun was long gone.

How could I resist those eyes? Or that smile?
For what seemed like forever, we stood there
the chemistry so strong, it sent electrical charges to my brain
causing my pulse to quicken so fast, I had to gasp to catch up.

He pleaded with his eyes for me to let him in
Little did he know I was already calculating
what food to give him that will ensure
the shortest route from his stomach to his heart.

As I placed the bowl of steaming amala and ewedu
in front of him, his lips mouthed the words 'thank you'
Though I couldn't really hear cause I was imagining what
those lips would feel like. On my skin.

Cause you see, they'd been there before.
Soft lips, that caused my body to convulse every time he kissed me.
Soft lips that temporarily caused amnesia when they touched mine.
Soft lips that were a breath away, yet so far.

I watched as he ate wondering what had gotten him
so hungry that he would wolf down such a heavy meal
at such an odd hour, and how did I even find the
strength to turn this amala this night?

After he was done eating he smiled a warm smile
and said 'Thank you' and in what seemed like slow motion
He got up and kissed me on the cheek.
The cartwheels in my stomach were going at 220mph.

But it wasnt really slow motion
And he didnt really kiss my cheek
But what he said was,
'Thanks I gotta get back to my girlfriends house'.

Fiction. Or is it? I wonder...

Please let it be fiction! Talk about eating his cake and having it. Eating good food at your place and then running to his girlfriend's house. Abeg he should tell her to cook it for him then.

He's treating you like an F.O.C (free of charge) mamaput

You are worth more than this.
