Wow, what a day. I think he likes me. I want to tell Bisi, but I do not know how he will take it. What if he tells mummy? Rachael was not even listening to what I was trying to tell her. She thinks I am too young. Does she think I don’t know what I’m doing? After all, I am old enough to know what and who I want. I just really wish she liked him too but it looks like she doesn’t.
If mummy finds out, she will kill me. I have to make sure I do not do anything bad, so that when she eventually finds out, she will like him too. But will she ever accept him since he does not live with both his parents. He also does not come from our place. Ohhhhhh….. I just pray that everything will be fine and work out well in the end. I’ll use style to ask daddy when he comes back.
