|Grab her sometimes, and dance with her. With no music, randomly on the street, dance......|
This week's true love story series is all about soon-to-wed lovebirds, Adaobi and Ikechukwu and they have got quite a beautiful story.
In The Beginning:
|Some People want it to happen, Some wish it would happen, Others make it happen......|
Adaobi: The story started 12years ago. We actually met at the family house in his village where I went to attend a wedding. I was to sleep over at his place as our parents were family friends for over the years even before I was born. The 1st time I took notice of him was at the kitchen door where he was talking to one of my cousins that came with me for the wedding too.
I started crushing on him immediately (it was surprising because that was the first time I ever crushed on someone), but I was still very underage and he was 5years older, so I had to hype my age and class in front of a fine guy and he actually believed because I set in puberty very fast. Good thing for me until my mum spoilt show.
|I find that the most beautiful moments of life aren't just with you, but because of you.....|
Ike: I still remember how it all began, the first time I saw her. Thinking about how it all happened puts a smile on my face. Who knew that we would be here today? Certainly not me. It was on December 2004 at Ogidi town in Anambra state that we met. I had just gotten into the university and had returned to the East to attend my uncle's traditional marriage.
While the ceremony was going on, I noticed 4 ladies and a little girl walk into the compound. 2 of them I already knew as they attended the same university with me, the 3rd person was a matured woman (my mother-in-law to be), the 4th was Mi Corazon (My Heart) and the little girl was her younger sister. I could not help but notice her beauty, the way she walked, her skin color, hips, clothes, and so on. I immediately crushed on her.
|I am up for anything, as long as I'm with you.....|
Adaobi: Into the night I fell asleep on the sitting room sofa, he then came in and needed to sit, but it was a full house, so he took my leg up, sat and placed it on his thigh. (I wished his hands wouldn’t come off my leg at that point the touch was awesome from a crush) the whole family finished the movie they were watching and then he brought out his video game (tekken 4) I loved the game and we played n played till PHCN took light.
At midnight I noticed they brought light and I went to wake him up for us to play the game again and he actually agreed (everyone was asleep as at that time) we played till his dad came out and chased us to sleep.
|Your Prince will come. He may not be riding in a white horse, or have a big castle. But he would want you, and only you, and that would be better than any fairytale....|
I was so glad to hear this as I thought to myself we are close in age and she will soon be in university, therefore something good can come out of this. Imagine how heart broken I was when her mum revealed the truth one morning at the dinning table while we all ate breakfast. It was only a simple question her mum asked her that made me suspicious.
|We will be best friends forever because you already know too much...|
|My greatest pleasure.... My greatest Reward... My World!|
|And all the beautiful girls across the globe got nothing on you babe!!!|
|I couldn't have had it any other way.I love you to the moon and back.Always and forever,My Blood.|
|After all this time.....it's still you!|
|Never above you, Never below you, Always beside you...|
|Your hands and My hands Have A Peculiar way of fitting Together....|
Adaobi: Fast forward to like 7yrs after we met, love got stronger. We faced distance all throughout the 12years and the challenges that follow as well, but here we are now.
