”good morning…um.. I am to deliver this package to this address. Are you miss niola Michaels? ”

”oh.. yeah, wow!…thats quick, ” she stared at the package on the tiled floor then back at the delivery man. ” Hold on a sec. let me get my ID card. ”

Phew! she opened the package and was impressed, it was the exact pairs of sneakers she had ordered, at least her first time purchasing something online was Worth it, unlike the crazy stories she read online about peoples ordering experiences.

A few minutes later her phone rang, it was her mother.

”Hello ma, ”

”Enny.. my dear, how are you? ”

”Im fine mom, how are you doing? I hope you didn miss your dosage? ”

”of course not dear, infact I feel better…Ive sent Jerry to drop off your dress, hope you are still home? ”

”Alright, Alright mom, ” niola said quickly before it gets to some kind of emotional speech. ”I hear you mom, tell Jerry Im home. And he should be snappy about it, Ive got a somewhere to be this morning. ”

She remembered how growing up use to be so slow, and now everything seems to be happening quickly. Her mother was everything to her, she did and amazing job raising her all by herself, She made being a single mom look easy, but it wasn . It was tough, but she made it work.

Her father was never in the picture, infact she had never seen him before all her 25 years. According to her mother, he left before she confirmed she was pregnant.

And when Tolu realize she was pregnant, she tried calling to inform him, but she was never able to reach him.

But they made something beautiful, smart, talented, unique. Niola was stubborn, yes, but, she sure do make her mom proud every time.

Niola stepped out of the bathroom sending droplets of water over the tiled floor, she picked up her towel and dried up. Few moments later she was dressed in black ripped jeans, blue shirt and running shoes. Jerry finally came with the dress, yack! Too pretty, she thought as she stared at the dress a little while and sighed. All her life, shed been very fond of jeans and shirt, well its just for a day; she told herself.
