I went for the barbecue😁.
I had never been in a social gathering of young Christians before. I was worried it was going to be boring.
Diary, far from it!💯😁 I had a blast! There was noise, laughter and dancing. Everybody was having a good time.🕺💃
All the fun I ever had prior, revolved around alcohol. But this didn’t. it was refreshing.😄
Around 6pm I was getting ready to leave. Who should walk in?
As he made his was round the room, he greeted and hugged everyone he met.
Our eyes locked. His eyes widened, the surprise evident.
I felt my heartbeat through my chest. Sweat began to form on my palms. 😰
I knew. I wasn’t ready for this.😬
I quickly booked my Uber. One was a minute away. 🏃🏃🏃I ran out of the house and didn’t even allow the UBER to come to a full stop before jumping in.
What will my new friends think of me? Just dashing off without a word.😒
Why did he have to turn up? Ugggh!😠
This morning, I confess. I toyed with the idea of changing church yet again😏.
I knew I was being ridiculous.. Its not that bad….I said
But for all my bravado I still left the service before it ended. I did not look left or right …🙄
I stepped out of the church and lo who was leaning against the building looking as cool as ice?
I just wanted to hit him.🙎 How dare he put me in such a frenzy and look so unruffled himself😲. Msheew!😡😠
I made to walk past him…🚶🚶🚶
Yeah, his voice still captivated me.🥰 Sonorous😍
I turned around. “Can I help you?”🙄
“I just want to apologise, you see…”
“Please don’t.” I raised my palm to his face “You owe me nothing. It’s all good” 😒
Na so I turn to continue my hard babe waka.🚶🚶
“Please let me explain, okay? I promise I won’t keep you long.”
I crossed my arms accross my chest. My head cocked to one side.🤨🧐
“My mum was sick. She had to get to the hospital that day. It’s just the two of us and I had to be with her.”
“I’m so sorry. H…how is she feeling now?”😕
“She is much better. Thank you. Yesterday was the first time I had been out since the day she fell ill. I had you on my mind, but I had no way of contacting you. You can imagine my shock and pleasure seeing you yesterday. I am so sorry”
“I’m sorry I was so short with you just now.” 😥
“Forgiven.” He said as he stuck his hands in his pockets and bounced on the balls of his feet.
“Wow, our first fight and I still don’t know your name.”
A smile slowly spread across his face.
I felt a warmth in the pit of my stomach🔥. I knew I was finished!😍🥴
If you see the foolish grin on my face.🤪 Diary, you would have been ashamed. I tried to do hard babe, but I couldn’t.🙊
“That’s beautiful. I am Jide.” And he smiled again
I had already decided on the theme for the wedding.👰🤵🥰
Then Diary, the unimaginable happened.😱
He SNEEZED HARD🗣️. Right in my face💦, with an explosion of snot down his nose.🤢
Chaaiii!! Fada in Heaven! Ewwwww🤮
While he tried to find anything to clean his nose, I was just spitting and spitting as much as I could. Finally, I remembered, I had tissue in my bag, I gave the poor guy to clean up and used some for myself.
I started to laugh and thankfully he joined in. I knew he was embarrassed.🤭
He walked me to my car and made sure to collect my number.
As I watched his very quick retreat, I wagged my finger at God.😄He must have orchestrated that sneeze to help me reset my brain.
Because just like that🗯️ the wedding was called off.🤵👎👎❌
Something about having particles of Jide’s nose emissions on my face killed the vibe quick!💔
God truly knows his pikin, I would have entered market tomorrow looking at samples for asoebi.🤣🤣🤣
