“Always late. Temi, where are you?” She was getting restless..
With so many eyes on her, she felt weird, to say the least. She had not the slightest idea why she attracted so much attention this day. Ladies were looking, whispering, pointing; even men stopped, turned, looked. It made no sense. Omidan felt uncomfortable, very uncomfortable.
Having managed to take a brief look at herself through a shop’s window, she concluded it had to be the hair, “What else could it possibly be?” and decided to let it down. “Better.”
“Mchewwww.. Look at this girl. It’s not the hair, jor!” a voice exclaimed from not too far away, giggling. Temi had finally arrived. “It’s your new bag, Miss! It’s absolutely awesome; a show-stopper for sure. Bigs girls!!
Omidan laughed, feeling ridiculous; she had completely forgotten all about her new bag. “Oh- so you agree, shey? Sebi I told you to follow me to the private sale yesterday, but you were busy playing wifey. Anyway sha, this is Ebun.” With a sudden injection of confidence- and now secretly pleased she had been the centre of many a people’s attention- she proudly showed off her new red leather and Ankara bag.
Enjoying Temi’s mixed feelings of jealousy and regret for some minutes, she had to admit she’d derive far more pleasure from seeing her best friend happy, and ordered, “Oya, close your eyes!”
Temi laughed- she knew Omidan would not have bought a bag for herself without remembering her. “Miss Kuku.. just like you!”
Temi received it, smiling. She absolutely loved it. “Brown and turquoise… so my colours. Thanks, babe! Jezreel Designs is trying sha; they really do have something for everyone.”
