6th, Jan, 20**
The street was lone and void of people who
normally tour the route to their various
destinations. This was quite unusual
considering the influx of students and indigens
who frequents the ever busy stadium road,
which serves as a pathway to other areas of the
Femi thought to himself. Suddenly, he saw a
human figure from afar approaching towards
his direction, and without the use of rocket
science, his modus operandi interpreted her to
be a female. The closer she walked towards
him, he was able to get a clearer view of her
physique. The beautiful young lady was walking
majestically with a well calculated step,
notwithstanding the restless wind which stroke
her hair from side to side. Her beauty had
totally captured his attention, Femi felt
butterflies in his stomach. A thousand thought
crossed through his mind in a split second, he
resolved to making an attempt towards
knowing her as a brilliant idea popped into his
head. Coincidentally, the lady kept staring at
him as she walked closer as though they had
known each other from time past, and just few
inches before she walked passed him, Femi
swerved into her pathway startling her, she was
obviously taken by surprise.
They both halted, gazing at each other
frantically into the eyes without uttering a word.
Suddenly, she attempted moving aside until she
was interrupted again as Femi kept blocking
every of her move. This routine lasted for a
while before she succumbed to his game while
giving him an inquisitive stare.
“Please, pardon my manners.” Femi said
breaking the silence. “My mom positioned me
to bring home the most beautiful girl I have
ever met for marriage, I was searching for her
until I found you. And I won’t let go unless you
follow me home.” He added with a tone of
finality, coated with a cute wink.
The lady was marvelled by his level of
confidence and humour put together, since the
prospective bachelor was quite young to get
married, considering his age. She thought to
herself, as her lips suddenly curved into a smile,
and then an uncontrolled laughter ensued.
“Are you serious, or you’re just trying to be
funny?” She finally spoke with a huge grin on
her face. She looked even more prettier this
“I’ve never been so serious. Time is tickling and
mama won’t be happy.” He responded with a
bigger grin on his face.
“Hold it, mummy’s boy. It’s funny how you
intend to marry someone whose name you
don’t even know” She retorted.
“My apologies ma’am. Lemme guess. You must
be Isabella by name.” He asserted.
She gesticulated by shaking her head in the
negative. “How about Gloria?” Nope! She
replied. “No doubt you must be Patience
Jonathan then” Femi said playfully.
“C’mon, must you always have to be funny. My
name is Odunayo. And I’ll marry you on the
condition that you won’t kill me with laughter.”
Ayo replied twerling her hair stylishly.
Femi was elated with euphoria as he thrusted
his fist in the air, his joy knew no bound as he
attempted to hug her, but immediately he
opened his arm, she practically disappeared out
of sight, leaving Femi stranded with awe. Then,
he fell into deep oblivion…..
THIS IS THE BEGINNING OF THE END!!
