They chose to meet at Lameyors garden.
Kanayo entered his car but had a little fear in his heart that Osonye might reject him the moment she found out he was Ifeoma’s ex- boyfriend. He then decided to call her.
“Hello Baby” Kanayo greeted
“I will soon be at Lameyors, I’m just locking my door now” Osonye said thinking he called to ask her where she was.
“OK my dear, but I want to let you know that I really fought for this day. I fought for your love so that you will not have any reason to reject me on this special day. I prayed to God to perfect this day so that it will be a memorable day in our lives, a day that will open another chapter for us…. You know, I have not opened up to you on how I got to know about you”
“My dear, won’t it be better we discuss this at the Lameyors? Atleast, we will get to sit face to face discussing it, you know.”
“I know Baby, but….” Kanayo who was struck by the whip of anxiety paused, thinking on how best to express himself so that Osonye won’t reject him for any reason or even suspect he had a hand on the severe nature of her friendship with Ifeoma.
“Hello are you there?” Osonye asked
“Yes! Yes! dear, OK, be coming, I will soon reach there” Kanayo said
“You are not there yet? Please I don’t want to reach there before you because I don’t like waiting for somebody”
“Baby, before 10 minutes, I will reach there. But it will still take you upto 30 minutes to get to the place considering your location. So be coming and don’t keep me
waiting oo because I don’t like waiting for some one too” He said as they both laughed and the call ended.
He brought our the engagement ring he bought, looked at it and prayed in his heart for Osonye to accept his marriage proposal. He then drove off.
On getting there, he sat at a very cool spot waiting for her.
When she arrived, he viewed her from afar and said:”Surely, this is the bone of my bone, and the flesh of my flesh. She is such a beauty. If I marry her, I will never have any reason to look at another woman. I have never seen a woman who is complete in all aspect, she is a typical example of what a woman should be.”
Osonye rocked a blue flared short gown, leaving open, her fair straight and fleshy legs which balanced on her black heeled shoe. She supported her attire with a small Channel purse hoping to look in her best to entice her Date.
Kanayo was still lost looking at the sexy creature approaching to meet him, as his phone rang. Osonye called informing him that she had arrived the place but couldn’t find him.
“OK Baby, you will see me now but when you do, don’t feel downcast, because I’m somebody you know quite well. But know that what is about to happen between us now is exactly what God wants, if not, he wouldn’t have allowed everything to fall in place for our sake”
“Hmm, OK, where are you, can we see now?”
“Yes sure” Kanayo said and stepped out, waving his hand for Osonye to see him.
When Osonye saw him, she shrunk her face.
“Is this not Kanayo and why is he waving at me? Please he should carry his wahala and go, I came here for a serious date.”
She said, standing there waiting for her date to come out and pick her but she never knew Kanayo was the one.
When Kanayo noticed she was not coming forward, he decided to approach her.
And Osonye started feeling unease and dialed the number of her date but shockingly, the phone was ringing right on Kanayo’s hand. She couldn’t believe it at first, but when she cut it, the phone stopped ringing.
Smiling Kanayo called her “Baby! I’m the one you are looking for?”
“You?” Shocked Osonye asked
“Yes, I am.” He replied
Kanayo cut in and said:”Let’s just find a seat first”
Osonye was left confused, she doesn’t even know what to think at that moment, she was left void on what to do. So she decided to follow him as they secured for a seat.
“What do you care for?” Kanayo asked
“Mr Kanayo, I don’t think I have the thirst for anything now. Why me? I thought you are my friend’s boyfriend?”
“Osonye, I know I was her boyfriend, but how do you expect me to control the feelings I have for you? Ifeoma made everything easier for me, I have been searching for a good woman to marry, but the things she kept saying about you were exactly the kind of things I admire in a woman.. But my love for you started growing strong from that first day you brought her to my office. Your zeal to help your friend captured my heart, it showed you are a very kind person” Kanayo professed
The heavily pregnant woman Austin saw looked familiar, she resembled Ifeoma, the woman Kanayo showed him her picture when they were still in China. When he was about to leave, one of the customers whom knew them very well called “Ifeoma” and she answered.
