”Five, four, three, two, one! Ready or not here l come ”. Lilian, a young woman in her early thirties calls aloud as she uncovers her eyes. She was playing a game of hide and seek with her five year old daughter Lilith in their small apartment.
”Now where could you be ” She asked rhetorically as she looks around the sitting room, behind and beside her cushions, under the center table, behind the fridge, and every where else in the sitting room with a slight look of fustration on her face.
”Honey ” she called out to her baby girl. ”You know you were supposed to hide only within the sitting room and l suppose you are not here at all ” she continued still looking around with her eye balls rolling around the sitting room. From up to down, left to right, till her eyes met something she was drawn to. A small cupboard beside the all screen TV. Thats it! She said to herself with joy. Thats where Lilith was hidding, and she was sure she could fit into it judging from her size.
Slowly, she tip toed to the cupboard, not wanting to alert her of her coming as she was sure she must have by now believed she was already fustrated and accepting her loss. She smiled to herself as she imagined the look that will plaster on her pretty baby girls face when she finds out she found her.
She got close to the cupboard and flung it open with full force. ”Gotcha! ”.
Lilith was startled at first but got hold of herself and let out a loud laugh. ”Ha haha. Mommy you found me ”. She stretched out her arms for her mom to carry her.
”Of course l did baby girl ” Lilian took her hands ”come here baby girl ”. She kissed her on she both cheeks and cuddled her.
”Mommy haha ” Lilith giggled as held her mom tight and give in to her cuddles and kisses. But suddenly, her stomach growled loudly. She looked at her mom and she looked back at her. They stayed like that for about three seconds before they both burst into laughter.
”Looks like my baby girl needs feeding. It seems that all the monsters in her belly have eaten all the Mac and cheese she had about two hours ago hmm ” Lilian teased.
”No mommy ” Lilith began with a pout. ”I don have monsters in my belly and l am not hungry, l am still full from the Mac and… ”. She was still speaking before her stomach growled again, this time louder than before and making her loose track of her words as her mother burst in to another round of laughter.
”You were saying? ” Lilian kept laughing till she heard another growl. ”Now thats the height of it ” her face turned serious. ”Its almost dinner time and l am not supposed to blame you for being that hungry, besides you just finished playing and am sure you sweated some of your food out of your body pores ”. She brought her down and crouched to her level. ”Come on, lets get you cleaned up so we can have dinner ” she said to het with the most beautiful smile.
”Sure mommy ” young Lilith nodded and returned her mothers smile with more life in hers. Her mother was the only family she had and knew about, as she doesn even know who her father was or what he looks like since she was born. Her mother always told her that her father was among Trivens military and defense forces against other worlds. She really did not understand what her mother meant, but she sure believed her father was a superhero just like in her story books.
She took her to the bathroom and gave her a thorough bath under the shower. She would have used the tub but she knew her hunger won allow her to wait for the bath to be drawn, so she passed for the shower. She got her dressed up in her pajamas and had her bath too and change in to her night gown as well.
”Now come here ” Lilian lifted her up again and carried her to the kitchen where she placed her on the dinning table and went ahead to the stove and sink.
Lilith pick up her toy that she had left on the table earlier that day and began playing with it. It was a teddy bear a gift from her mom when she turned five last month, and it had her favorite color, purple. She cuddle the teddy bear as she watched her mother contemplate on what to cook.
”Mummy how about you set up a salad ” she suggest salivating already at the thought of having a salad.
Lilian clicked her fingers and turned to Lilith. ”You are very right baby and we can have with the grilled chicken! ”.
”Yummy! ” Lilith squeaked in joy.
Lilian smiled at her and set up a salad immediately. Carrots, cucumbers, cabbage, green beans, tomatoes and lastly some flavor and soothed with mayonnaise plus the grilled chicken. It looked so tasty and Lilith could wait to have a taste already and neither could her stomach too as it growled louder than ever.
”Tell your monsters to calm down baby ” Lilian teased again. ”Food will be served in no time, just some finally touches ”.
”Mommy l am so so hungry, l want to eat already ” she groaned with a pout, making her look very cute.
”Ok, ok, ok ” Lilian dished the food immediately into two plates one for her and the other for Lilith. She placed the plates on the dinning table and helped Lilith seat comfortablely on a chair and sat opposite her. She set the food before her with a glass of juice and handed her her favorite cutlery that had her favorite color as well. She dug in immediately, munching eat bite of the food with sweet moans.
”This tastes really good mommy ” she complimented without even looking up to her mother as she couldn take her attention away from the food.
”Thanks baby but take it easy, you might choke on the cabbages ”. Lilian just started at her daughter with so much affection, she reminded him alot of her late husband Phil. He was among Trivens force against other worlds, to stand for it dominance and existence on the planet. He died in the last war five years ago against Raine, a world that tried to dominate over Triven and rid it of its existence. Triven multiplied its forces and fought against Raine and fortunately, they won against them and mapped them out of the surface of the planet. Despite the joy of their victory, the lost of her husband still left an abyss of sadness in her heart which was partly covered with the birth of Lilith.
She was born two days after the war, after Phils death. He did get to meet her, and see how she took after him. His purple hair and eyes, caramel skin. And most of all, his sweet smile. She really missed him so much but could tell her poor daughter that her father was dead. So she just made her believe her dad was her greatest hero and fighting for her right now.
”Mommy ” Lilith called , followed by a yawn jolting her mom from het thoughts.
”Whats it love ” Lilian wiped a tear from her left her that fell by mistake, and she didn want Lilith to see.
”I am ok mommy l would like to sleep now ”.
”Sure ” Lilian left her food and stood to carry. She took her to her room and laid her comfortablely on her bed and tucked her in properly before she turned to leave but was stopped by Liliths yelp.
Lilian was startled. ”What is it darling? ” She bent to her.
”You forgot to read to me my favorite story book ” she said obviously annoyed with a pout.
”Sorry baby ” Lilian slapped her face jokingly which made Lilith chuckle. She walked to her shelf and and took out the story book. She started at it for a while, wondering what Lilith saw in this particular book.
She drew out the chair from her drawing and painting table and sat by her bed before she cleared her throat and began.
