I went inside and packed everything the kids were playing outside .
"Mummy are we shifting again " Eveyln asked
"I hope its a place where there are no bad guys " she said
"No bad guys my love its the kind man he has given me a job I will be able to take you to school again " I said
"Really mummy I miss being in class "
"I will take you my princess even you my prince " I said rubbing Bupe's head .
We finished packing and got everything that belonged to us .
"No need to get those the quarter has everything " he said
"Let me give the lady on the corner than " I said
"Please hurry up am going to be late " he said
I ran to the corner and gave the lady the basins and some few plates I bought .
"Thank you and where ever you are going may God continue blessing you my child " she said
"Thank you mayo " I said getting up .
We left to the house .
If I tell you I have never seen such a big house you will never believe me it was an upstair house.
"Joey help me take her things to the quarter " he said
I got the baby who was now up from the car
"She likes you Riley always cries when she meets her nanny for the first time "
"I guess we will be buddies" I said
We walked inside and he showed me around .
"This is Riley's room and her things are in her closet " he said
This kid has a closet .
After showing me around he took us to the quarter .
It was a one bedroom quarter a kitchen living room which had one sofa and a 22 inches plasma the bathroom and toilet .
"Joey will bring you all the food stuff "he said walking away.
I told the kids to sit still while I went to change the baby's diaper .
She was saying some words but not clear
"Looking for something " he asked
"Don't you have decent food to give the baby" I asked
"Decent what do you mean by decent ?" .
I noticed this man rarely smiles.
"I mean better food than this muzungu(English) food you feed the baby " I said holding the small bottle
"That's what she has been eating "
"Buy groundnuts or peanut butter do you have mealie meal ?" I asked looking around .
"I rarely eat at home the only things I buy is for the baby ''
"Have you eaten Zambian food before ?" I asked him .
"My late fiance used to cook for me and I loved it I eat in restaurants" he said
"Okay sir let me pay you back for everything you have done by cooking for you plus I need to feed this baby she looks slim this is not her body " I said .
Why did he laugh?
"So you will tell me this is not my body as well" he asked
"No sir I don't know maybe "
"You can buy mealie meal for the baby if you don't want me to cook for you " I said
"You will go with Joey when he comes back "
"Even for you " I asked
"Even for me madam " he said getting a bottle of water .
Ba Joey came and he had a lot of groceries for us .
"Ba Joey did you buy the all shop" I asked putting the baby on my back
"This is a lot ba Joey "
"Its the boss who gave me the list "
"He gave you a list for two houses ?"
"Its all yours ba Sammy " he laughed
This man was indeed sent from heaven
"Joey come " The man called
"Clean the fridge first than put everything in there " he instructed
After cleaning the fridge I cooked nshima the chicken he got for us .
When I was done I dished out for the kids and I fed the baby who was eating nshima like a baby boy .
"Ba Sammy ba boss said we should go buy food for the house " he said
"Come eat first than we can go " I said as I continued feeding the baby
He washed his hands and joined me .
"Ummm ba Sammy you want me to leave my wife with this kind of cooking " he said
"This is delicious kaleza( I swear) " he said licking his fingers .
"Look at the baby she is eating as if she has been starving "I said
He laughed " you know these coloured kids English manners " he said
We both laughed .
