‘’ Scuse me miss’’,
‘’ Hi Beautiful’’.
I heard a deep but startling voice behind me. I turned back, a very tall about 6ft 5’’ frame was standing and beaming smiles at me. His white teeth shone underneath his beautiful dark skin; I noticed he had a ’baby face’, I admired him. ‘’Oh my dayz, he’s soo good-looking’’, I thought to myself but i quickly composed myself before he could read the expression on my face. ‘’May i help you?’’ I asked quickly. He smiled, revealing his beautiful dimples. ‘’ He has dimples!’’ I shrieked in my head.
‘’I am sorry to bother you, I noticed you from a distance and I would love us to be friends’’.
‘’What kind of friend could that be if i may ask?’’, I answered scowling my face, not wanting to look or sound desperate, but in my mind “Yes please!” was my response.
“Actually I would love to know you better, may i have your number?’’ 07568389503, he immediately typed the digits on his blackberry. ‘’I will ring you tonight’’.
“Ok no problem”.
“I am Dolapo Martins by the way’’.
“Moroti Adetayo’’, I replied, “nice meeting you”.
After saying our goodbyes, I rushed down to McDonalds to give my friend, Sarah the latest ‘gist’.
I couldn’t wait for Dolapo to call me. From time to time, I kept glancing at my phone to check for any mystery number. His tall and slim physique wouldn’t leave my mind, he was all i was thinking about.
‘’This is ridiculous. Moroti get over yourself, he’s probably one of those guys’’, I kept tryin to dissuade myself.
At exactly 7:28pm, I had settled on my favourite chair getting ready to watch Eastenders on BBC. Heaven knows i wouldn’t miss it for a thing. The sudden buzz of my phone distracted me. A strange caller I.D appeared on the screen of my iphone. I immediately knew it was Dolapo; I picked it up and answered with my sweetest voice ‘’Hello good evening may I know who is speaking?’’, not that I didn’t know it was him, I just didn’t want him to know I had been waiting for his call.
“This is Dolapo. We met this evening on Oxford Street”.
We talked for about 20 minutes and he promised to call the next day.
Dolapo was all I could think and talk about. He called me everyday. He took me to different restaurants and cinemas. He made me feel very special and when he finally asked me to be his girlfriend, I didn’t even play my usual ‘hard to get’. I immediately said “yes” and after a year of our relationship, he asked me to get serious with him and that he had fallen ‘head over heels’ with me. He even asked me to forgo all my male friends because he was the jealous type. I was very happy to hear him say this. I told all my male friends to stay away and didn’t give an attention to the ones that were interested. I was in a serious relationship anyways…..
