Toju had been away for over a month. He was due back home in three days. Mimi was, oh so, looking forward to his return. Never, had they been separated for this long from each other, since they got married, over fifteen years ago. The longest had been a week. Mimi missed him terribly. They spoke and faced time, like five times a day. The chats were uncountable. And each time he signed off, he made her know how much he loved her and couldn’t wait to get her in his arms. That always made her giddy, feeling like a teenager again, even after two children. She had to make his homecoming extra special. She needed to let him know how special he was to her.
She signed up at the gym close to her office, a week after Toju travelled. Mimi, who would not get up before six thirty every morning, was ready for the gym by six thirty. She made the kids wake earlier and ready for school. Thankfully, her sister lived down the road, and their kids went to the same school, so, one problem solved.
Her first day at the gym was hard. She could barely move any part of her body and was almost giving up. But then Toju called again, calling her his special gift. Giving her that wicked, sexy smile that always drove her nuts, describing what he would do to her, with his hands and tongue, when he returned home. No! There was no way she would give up the gym. She did not tell him about the gym. She wanted that to be a surprise. She was going to lose 10kg before he returned, even if it killed her! Her friends from her high school, through their Whatsapp chats, cheered her on, giving her some very “wicked” ideas on how to make Toju sweat, which even made her hornier. She was going to do this.
She got her “special bag” ready. Her list of things to buy handy. As she got the items, she ticked off the list, equipping her bag for the mission at hand. KY gel(s), sexy lingerie, hotel room booked, very close to the airport, scented candles, body oil. She wandered if she should add melted chocolate to the list. Hmm!
Each day she counted down to 12th February, she worked her butt off at the gym. Aerobics, treadmill, cycling, swimming laps on weekends. She gave her friends a day to day report on her journey. Then two days to his anticipated return, he dropped the bomb! He had a meeting scheduled for the 12th and had to change his flight date. He would be returning on the 14th. Valentine’s Day! Hmmm! Mimi was disappointed. Her hormones where all over the place and she was barely holding on. Now he would be returning on Valentine’s Day. Okay. She would make it work. Thankfully, she had taken a week off work, so that was taken care off. Her only fear was availability of rooms at the hotel on Valentine’s day. She called the hotel. Any rooms available? Yes!! She quickly changed her booking. Everything was now fine. Two days now became four days. She’d waited this long, she could wait for a few more days.
She was at the airport by 6pm. His flight landed by 7pm. She saw him as he cleared immigrations. She had carefully dressed for tonight. Her little black dress, with the open V-shaped back, fitted to the “T” showing off her newly acquired figure, her feet adorned in dainty silver shoes, her hair drawn up with long silver earrings, showing off her long, sexy neck.
Toju did a double take. He almost walked past Mimi. He noticed the lady smiling at him, but he was looking for his wife. When she called him, his mouth dropped to the floor.
“Wha-ho-wh…” Mimi laughed, put her hands round his neck and kissed him like never before. His eyes were still closed when she ended the kiss. She laughed again, enjoying the expression on his face as he checked her out.
“Come on baby, let me show you how much I missed you.” Mimi led him out of the airport and to the hotel. This valentine, was one neither of them would EVER forget. She was going to make sure her time at the gym, was not wasted.
