It was a beautiful night and just like I desired, he made love to me like never before. It was as if he knew that, it was our goodbye love. He was so perfect that night.
The time was ticking 2:30 am, I was lying next to him, still mustering the courage to break up with a man who had built all his world around me.
And finally, I tapped him to wake up.
Unlike him, who normally sleep deep, he woke immediately.
I was surprised and asked him if he wasn’t sleeping, that he woke up so fast.
And he said, he wasn’t sleeping at all, that he was thinking.
“Thinking about what?” I asked, paying close attention
“Baby” he called, moving very close to me and held me, drawing me into his arms “You see, I have been thinking. I don’t think we should continue joking around anymore. I think it’s time we took things to the next level”
I got pinched at instant. It was hard for me to break up our relationship and he was making it even harder by proposing.
He continued”I think it’s time I came to see your parents. Time I officially make you mine”
I suspected his reason for the sudden proposal was because of the way my phone was ringing earlier. Though, he didn’t ask me who it was and why I was ignoring the calls, but he felt something was going on.
He was reserving everything after I’m done with school. So the incessant calls from Chris made him change his mind before another man snatched sleep from his eyes. But it was already late for him.
Buchi expected to see me in wild jubilation, but I disappointed him. It wasn’t what he was expecting.
