How They Met
If you are reading this, I hope you have a box of tissue by your side, I am about to take you on an exciting short journey of friendship and true love at 5th sight- chuckles.
I was jejely in my apartment cooking one of my many favorite dishes, Amala with Eforiro and fresh fish, when I got a call on my phone from a strange number, the caller wanted to make inquiries as regards one of my free rooms. Did I mention I got a two-bedroom townhouse and I was in dire need of a roommate? The caller scheduled to inspect the space on May 12, 2018, at 6 pm.
As I watched Tosin pull out of his car, my senses left me for 2 seconds, dang it !!!, he is handsome and drop dead gorgeous, I tapped myself to consciousness, be focused Tobi, he’s here for the room.
Remember I earlier mentioned I was testing my cooking skills right. Anyway, I offered him Amala and he did not say No. He ate, licked his hands, and smiled. Lol, I was super impressed with my cooking skills. After eating we gisted for about 3 hours and lo and behold, the young man forgot he came to inspect a room.
After plenty talk, he inspected the room, He liked it and mentioned he will get back to me, He contacted me 3 weeks later and said he was moving to California with his brother, so I might have to look for another roommate, I said okay and moved on. Did I also mention he said he wanted us to be friends? Anyway, that was how our friendship started.
The friendship had its ups and downs like every normal friendship would. Fast forward to October 2018, I went to a store to pay my cell phone bills, guess the first person I saw, you guessed right, TOSIN. I was both elated and angry because I honestly didn’t know he worked at that store, I mean, the last time I checked, he was in California, I stubbed him and Moya Look Away, someone else attended to me, and I walked out in grand style.
Mid-October 2018, I went to get a headphone at the same location where he worked. Of course, I saw him again. This time, I let my guard down and spoke to him. We exchanged pleasantries, and I was on my way.
I went back in November to pay my phone bills again, I tried catching up with him but he ignored me and left in a hurry. What!!! Such effrontery. I reached out to him via phone, he immediately apologized for his ill-mannered behavior and that kinda warmed my heart towards him. He requested to come over to my place with Jollof rice, chicken and dodo. Of course I said Yes to his request; who says No to food? eyes rolling
When he arrived, we gisted till midnight, gave each other a chance to be friends again and viola, 2weeks after he asked me to be his girlfriend and I said YES.
He introduced me to his family on November 22, 2018 and we soared to greater heights.
I love celebrating birthdays and Tosin knows that. America’s Independence Day is July 4th and my birthday is one day after. Tosin mentioned that his family is having a cookout on Independence Day. I got to his family’s house to help with the planning, not knowing that I was planning my proposal. He suggested I wear my favorite color which is yellow. He ensured I looked my best, I mean nails and makeup from a professional makeup artist was done. I took a close look at the mirror and boy, I looked and felt beautiful.
sniffs (I smell a fish), I was a bit curious to why Tosin invited my pastor and his wife to a cookout. He convinced me by explaining how he wanted to celebrate my birthday alongside his family cookout and he just thought it will be ideal to invite all the people I hold dear to my heart.
As people kept trooping in, I remember asking my friends if Tosin invited the whole village, cos this one has pass birthday celebration. It seemed like a mini wedding ceremony without Asoebi because there was also DJ and photographer.
As the celebration went on and on, his brother asked me to come and sit in front as the guest were here to celebrate with me, all of sudden I saw people bringing out their phones and I was shocked and was asking him from a distance what’s going on? But he was so nervous and he wasn’t paying attention to my question, because at that time he was telling the crowd how caring, beautiful, loving, and God-fearing I am. You needed to have seen the smile on my face, it had already formed two chuku.
He asked his brother to sing me a Happy Birthday song, as he was chanting happily, I busted into massive TEARS🤦🏾♂️🤦🏾♂️🤦🏾♂️. I couldn’t help it, I am too emotional. While his brother was singing, Tosin was already behind me with the ring, but I was faced down because I was crying, then I saw his sister and my best friend stand in front of me with my birthday cake and a bold message: HAPPY BIRTHDAY, WILL YOU MARRY ME.
I cried more when I saw the cake and what was written on it, it was at that moment that he knelt down and asked me officially, I cried some more tears of joy, I was simply blown away and overwhelmed. The whole village was practically waiting to hear my response and of course I said YES.
This is the second time I am saying YES to Tosin.
Over the years, I have had eventful, spontaneous, beautiful, and somewhat challenging moments with Tosin. With God on our side, forever will be beautiful!
