HOW WE MET :
It was the oddest of meetings in July 2014, in the most of circumstances I could never have imagined.
I was tired after the day’s work; I went to the ladies to prepare for
the long drive home from Marina to Ikeja. And, he was out there
standing in the lobby area waiting for me to come out of the toilet (he
had actually been watching and taking note of my itinerary for weeks).
The time was about 5:35PM.
Next thing he said was, “how come you get to close this early?” and
in my mind I was like ‘who is this guy and why is he talking to me? I
ignored him and he just stood there with the biggest smile ever.
Fast-forward to like 2weeks after, our mutual friend, Bunmi told me
there was this guy that liked me and I literally rolled my eyes and
asked who the person was. She actually assumed I knew him, I had to go
fish him out and it clicked it was the same guy that accosted me weeks
back. In my mind I brushed him away because I wasn’t ready for ‘office
Days grew to weeks and he was growing on me, I agreed to go out on a
date with him after much shakara. We had our first date at @dominos,
Ikeja gra. After then, things fell naturally into place and we decided
to take it from there and see how it goes. Which has brought us to where
we are today.
I had given up on him proposing so I didn’t see it coming. All I knew
was we were already planning a wedding so I wasn’t expecting a
Days before his birthday, I kept asking, ‘what are we doing for your
birthday?’ He would just shrug and say I don’t know. At a point, I was
frustrated and decided to ignore him. I told myself, ‘I’ve sha bought
cake, so let me rest too, since he isn’t in celebration mood’.
On the day of his birthday, during the day when I called, he sounded
very busy; I just shrugged it off thinking he was meeting people and
all. I was busy in the office tormenting my friend about the cake
delivery. I’m sure I told her to call them a zillion times, lol.
It was 5.30pm and the cake was yet to arrive, I was upset. I finally
managed to meet the delivery man half way and drive to La Mango in
Maryland for his birthday party. Boo had finally decided to throw a
party at the last minute.
I got there, hugged him dropped his cake and sat down to enjoy
myself. I noticed his best friend, brother, my sister and other close
friends were in attendance, which was normal though. While I and my
friend, Bunmi were going through IG, I heard an announcement that a
certain man wants to propose to his girlfriend, I was like huh? Next
thing a waiter dropped a plate in front of me and opened it; it had
‘will u marry me with a ring in the middle’.
People were screaming while I kept grinning like a child who saw
candy, I remember being very shy though. All the while boo was on bended
knee beside me and just smiling. My sister had run out of the toilet
screaming and angry that we didn’t wait for her.
