The beautiful one I place before anyone else(my love story Exposed!!!!!!!!!)
Love is such a beautiful thing and being loved unconditionally is something so beautiful.
I read some people's posts and I was got so emotional.
At a point, I was just saying Awwn and blushing on people's behalf.
Enough of the prelude
So how did it all start?
It started about 10 years ago when I went for a pre-degree program at the University of Port Harcourt just in our 1000 student capacity auditorium.
I noticed her from a distance with a host of guys.
She was just quietly sitting down and listening to their jokes.
She smiled as if she was scared to and sat like a queen among them.
She was in the department of engineering and that explained the host of guys around her.
She was not so tall but she was just perfect for me.
She was really light-skinned
She was the fairest girl in a class of 1000 students
Our eyes jammed and I was shy, so I ran out of the classroom and headed straight to my room.
I couldn't face her cos anytime I saw her my heart would skip.
Somehow I was privileged to see her again and this time I made up my mind that I was going to talk to her.
I smuggled myself into the midst of her friends and we got talking.
I tried to get her attention and I won it.
Then I asked her to invite me over to her place.
She did and told me to come over on a Friday.
It was a Friday evening, I had my bath and sprayed almost half of my perfume. A man has to smell good you know
I also didn't want to be late.
I was thinking of getting her something and so I got her suya while coming.
I mean I couldn't come empty-handed and I also felt like bringing something for her.
You know that feeling when you want to get something for your loved ones because it makes you feel good?
I got there and as she stepped out of her hostel, she was looking so dazzling, the sun made her radiate. She was golden.
I think I felt butterflies in my tummy.
I had to comport myself.
I got into her room and that was the neatest room I had seen in my life.
Everything was arranged and kept in the right position. ( yes she has some form of OCD.. she could sweep her room ten times a day)
Shortly after we talked, she served me a plate of noodles and egg with a glass of yoghurt and trust me, the food was really good. (maybe it was love but I had not eaten any food that was sweeter apart from my mother's food of course)
I was already syncing then a conversation sealed it off.
she was so intelligent and hardworking.
She could engage in conversations and this just made me want her more.
We got to know each other more. We started reading together, working towards getting admission into uni.
Then something happened!!!
She got admission into another school to study Petrochemical Engineering.
I was really sad.
I had not gotten any admission.
So my newly found love was going to leave me? The only one that made me happy with all the pressure was going to leave.
This got me really worried.
However, we were not done with the program, so she decided to stay in the program and struggled to pass because she wanted to be with me.
We finally got admission into the same university
We eventually started dating and I got even more fond of her.
The love grew stronger and better.
We celebrated anniversaries and did a lot of hanging out.
we fought, we reconciled and this even made it more fun.
She was my run-to friend any time I had issues
Our first date
So for starters, I am not someone who usually goes out.
I rather stay at home partly because I don't have money or just the cumbersome process of going out.
It was valentine's day when in the year 2014 and I had gone to school in the morning.
I didn't really care about the val thingy.
Luckily for me, she didn't care either.
I had dropped my long text of how much I loved her and how she meant the whole world to me as a midnight text.
She loved words anyways and she would value that to going out.
SLater in the day, she called me to ask what I was going to eat.
I said anything and she said she didn't feel like doing anything.
She was tired and exhausted from the day's activity.
Two hours later I got a call from her telling me to rush home that something serious had happened.
She sounded agitated and distressed.
I took a bike straight to her house.
when I got there I was perceiving the nice aroma of Afang soup.
I was already smiling.
She was fond of giving me surprises.
I was so happy and then I stepped into the room and I met my baby crying.
I quickly ran to the bed to know what the problem was.
She told me to go to the kitchen to see what happened.
I went and I saw the full pot of soup on the floor and she apparently slipped and got her butt burnt in the process.
It was a terrible moment as the surprise ended up being a disaster and she also sustained an injury.
I applied penicillin ointment to the wound and did all the taking care of.
And then we decided that nothing was going to ruin our day and she carried her burnt butt and we went to a sit out.
We had fun, drank, got high and then held each other back home.
This was our first date. Any day I remember it I smile.
I am literally smiling right now
Are we still together?
Well, that's a hard question to answer as a lot of factors are now put in place to further the process of dating.
Finances, maturity, source of income, religion, understanding and a few other things.
We really do like each other, there is nobody on earth who understands me more than her.
she is the one who knows me so well.
I will pick her over and over again.
We are currently not together but she is the one I place before anyone else.
