MY FIRST CRUSH
“Oh, that’s very great! Marian saw nothing in me and broke my heart when I needed her most. Thanks for your advice my brother and friend but, I will sleep over it” Tayo replied Dayo message and went to bed.
“I wished I could do that but I couldn’t hurt Raquel and moreover it was not worth it.” I sent a message to Dayo when I woke up for work.
Just when I decided to propose marriage to Raquel, Marian called me and this time around, she is not moving an inch away from me because; she still loved me.
Would you give her the chance?
I couldn’t believe this. I thought she said she wanted a love which was sweeter. But who told her the "Sugar” love was finished?
“I’m really sorry Mariam but I can’t be with you anymore and besides, I’m with another person who means the world to me and she doesn’t deserve that ill-treatment you want to cure” my response to her was short and simple.
She kept on calling but I had better things doing so I didn’t answer the call. I asked Raquel to marry me and she accepted one night when I took her out.
Debby and her husband were out of town but they promised to be at the wedding. We decided to get married in a month’s time. I texted the invitation to Marian and she wasted no time to come to my workplace.
“Do you think you can dump me just like that for no reason? We started this journey and we must finish. I repeat we must finish!! Well, I did some mistakes on the journey of love but here am I after rectifying them all” she shouted at the entrance and walked in calling my name.
“You will marry me Tayo” she screamed creating scenes.
“Will you stop behaving like a crazy kid? You have no right to ask me not get married. What did you think? That, I was going to come crawling at your feet when you left me on the fence of love? I thought you wanted sweeter love more than “Sugar” love.” I raised my voice to her when my colleagues were taking her out.
“Leave me alone” She left saying I was going to regret rejecting her.
I saw things were finally falling into place. My siblings were doing well and our wedding day was here!!! I was waiting anxiously for my bride and to my utmost surprise, Debby came to the wedding with her husband, her two beautiful children and also pregnant for three months. I saw Raquel in her wedding dress and I couldn’t believe my eyes. red color garments for cocktail
An hour later, the wedding was over and we all headed to the reception to make merry and have fun. I thanked Debby for giving me a wonderful lady and promised to treat her good just as her husband treated her. We burst into laughter and advised I obey my promise.
Guess who showed up at the reception?
Marian! It seemed she enjoyed disturbing my peace. My heart started racing very fast when her words sunk deep in my ears and echoed in my head. She came in begging me to forgive her and asked me to introduce my bride to her. I called Raquel to come over and meet an old friend.
She came and her face changed totally after seeing Marian. I asked her if they knew each other but nobody said a word. I smelled anger in the breath of Raquel and that of Marian. My eyes moved from one face to the other waiting to hear something but it seemed I had to repeat myself.
“What is going on here? Do you by any means know each other? Somebody should explain things to me” I said in anger and tried pulling Raquel back to her seat.
