The past 2

“Just mention it, and I will do it,” I said immediately.

“If I decide to date you, we won’t get intimate till we seal the union, but that’s if you want to commit.”

I hesitated for a while before I agreed to what she said.

“Alright. I concur.”

Honestly, I didn’t consent to what she said willingly, but I had to because I’d fallen head over heels in love with her.

When we started dating, it felt like a dream because each day, she gave me more reason to believe that she completed the missing puzzle in my life.

I was dating Oluchi, but it didn’t stop me from dating other ladies. I ensured that I played my game perfectly so that she won’t find out about my escapades.

Personally, I decided to keep in touch with all my female friends till I decided to walk down to the aisle, although I made sure none of them visited me.

I couldn’t afford to lose Oly because of my carelessly with other ladies, and because of that, I either took them to the hotel or to my friend’s place.

“You’ve not seen a woman at this age? Do you know you’re approaching 40?”, she would complain.

“Don’t worry, mum. Just give me a little time.”

My father wasn’t left out. He would always remind me how he got married to my mum at an early age.
In all their complaints, I didn’t flinch because I knew that I would see the woman I truly love.

So, when I told my parents that I was coming over the weekend to show them the woman I wanted to settle down with, they were so excited.

My mom whom I termed, “the best chef in the whole world ” started making different delicacies so as to entertain us when we finally arrive.

On that fateful day, I and oly set out on the journey to my parents house.

The journey was a long one buy due to the fact that we left early, we arrived in the afternoon.

Immediately we knocked at the door, my parents who had been expecting us for a while, rushed out and opened the door.

“My son, you’re welcome”, they both choruses as they hugged me.
