Extra: 9th letter to my future wife
Dear future wife,
You have been all over my mind today and I cannot help it but write this letter to you. I hope you have the time and patience to read through. I have been busy lately working on myself so I can be a better man. Each day, am trying to be better than I was the previous day just for you. By the time our path cross, you will be meeting a sweet and amazing man. I know it’s hard to believe that good men exist, but they do. Maybe they are few but you can be sure that you will be having one of the few good ones to yourself. Even though I will also be bad in some good ways. Hehehe.
I am feeling sick right now. Came home tired and jumped on the bed. Couldn’t even take off my cloth. No energy to make something to eat. At this point I realize I miss you in my life. If you were here, you will undress me. Bath me. Make food for me. And be my Doctor. With you, sickness will runaway with just a touch from you.
I really need your encouragement right now. Been working so hard so that we can have enough. Just when it seems as if all was going well then I lost it all. Now am starting all over. Sometimes it’s discouraging. But if you were here, you would have held me and pushed me to be the best for us. With you I know that I will always be at my best. And we can have the world in our hands. We can travel the world together and every day will be sweeter than valentine’s day.
Queen, Yesterday I was watching a movie. And then suddenly the couples started kissing. It was so annoying! Can you imagine? The couple couldn’t even kiss well. How I wish you were with me. We would have started kissing until we turn the house upside down. I was saying within myself that they don’t know anything. By the time we are together and we have some kiss. Even the sun will stand still.
Do you know how I feel right now? I feel like spoiling you tonight. I feel like over feeding you tonight. I feel like going out to buy one beautifully seductive gown for you. Dress you up and we go out. We paint the town red! We could go anywhere to eat, dance and just move around. Come home and late exhausted then sleep till 10 am tomorrow. I hope we won’t be too late for work. Well, who cares as long as we got each other 😉
I have met a lot of girls, they all pretend to be you, I almost fell for one or two but it is you that am waiting for. My heart is ready for you, my mind is ready for you, my body is ready for you, everything is ready for you, just show up when you are ready. I know a lot of guys have been coming too. They have been trying to fool and deceive you. Tell me one of the lies they told you so we can laugh together. Hehehehe.
My darling, I want to learn how to give a good massage. You know those moments that you will come home tired and your body will be aching you? Don’t worry, I will be there to massage you. I will massage all the pains away. I will be your personal masseur. I know that sometimes, I will be lucky. The massage could lead to something else and before we know it, we will move from massage to humming like a car horn. Then sleeping and waking up in the night to continue
I have been going to gym so that I can stay fit for you. When you are here, we will be going together. We will be gyming together. It is good to stay fit. But there is another kind of gym that I like. That gym is located in the bedroom. We will be gyming there every morning and night as much as we can. It is very important to stay fit mentally and emotionally. We can also set up that kind of gym in the kitchen so that we can steal some gym while cooking together. As a matter of fact, everywhere in the house will turn to a gym! We will gym in the bathroom, sitting room, outside even in the car, we will gym!
Lastly, don’t forget some of my native language that I thought you. It is important so that we can be using it to have secret conversations. “Ima” means “love.” “muma fien” means “I love you”. There is one I need you to learn so we can use in the sitting room when visitors or the children are around “Yak ika ufok ina,” it means “let’s go to the bedroom”
Please write to me as soon as you read this. I am hoping to see you soon. Tired of waiting. Show yourself and let the journey start. Take care of yourself for me. Don’ let anyone enjoy all the ingredient, they are meant for me alone.
I love you
Mfon Abel Ekene
