“Hey, you guys should leave my man alone...ooo,” Osisioma said cheerily,
“before he changes his mind and stops teaching me Econometrics that makes
me feel like dropping out from school,”
They all laughed as they welcome him to the table.
Chibunna was always the quiet guy whose speeches are always related to
books. Amid his handsomeness, he had no time for girls. Notwithstanding that
his parents were rich; he only wears a particular set of cloth because he wasn’t
the materialistic kind of guy. Most of his funds are channelled to buying books
and reading novels, especially the ones written by Erasmus, his favourite
“Do I have to defend myself?” Chibunna said and sat down, “I haven’t
eaten since one month as I prepared for this day,” he jested making them all
laugh, “Can food start coming now, jare (Please)?”
“I’m glad you survived that divertive bold method you adopted for my
rescue,” Uremma said appreciatively and started laughing, “Those akpuobi
(macho) guys would have squeezed your intelligent head into that of a dunce,”
“Omo eh!” Chibunna exclaimed, “That guy almost killed me, to the extent
that I wished that Amy slapped me when I told her my strategies of creating a
diversion. At least it would have helped me have a rethink before going into
such suicidal mission,”
There was prolonged laughter among them until a buzz of the bell got the
laughter abated.
Amarachi was surprised because no other person was invited except the
five people already seated at the dining table.
“Did anyone invite any other person aside from us that are present?” Amy
asked and rolled her eyes.
They all looked at each other shrugging, indicating that they invited no
other person.
“You may wish to check out the person,” Chibunna suggested without
directing the question to anybody.
“Aren’t you the man here?” Osisioma asked, suggesting he does that.
“Not when macho men are involved to beat me up again,” he said and
they started laughing, but this time in a controlled way as they remained
uncertain about the person at the door.
Amarachi went straight to the door and opened it. She was wowed that it
was Dave who was at the door, kneeling and waiting for her; with the ring of
engagement firmly held between his fingers.
Being that the door was wide open, every other person in the sitting room
saw the bold moves by Dave and were all wowed.
Uremma couldn’t believe that Dave who was her boyfriend a couple of
months ago was proposing to the same girl she believed to be her blood sister
when the truth is revealed.
“I’ve waited long ago for this,” Dave said as Amarachi remained uncertain
and bashful; covering her face with her soft palm “Many times we’d wanted to
see this day pass but it never worked, but today is the perfect day,” Dave said
and remained in that genuflecting position.
The audience was thrilled as they watched them. Every activity came to a
halt as they waited for a ‘yes’ from Amy
Uremma knew that Amy was being uncertain because of her presence, so
she went closer but still maintained some yards away.
Amarachi looked back at them all with shame and saw that they were all
looking and waiting. When her eyes met Uremma’s charming eyes, she
became daunted, feeling as if she was trying to take away her guy from her.
Uremma with smiles all over her, nodded in approval, suggesting that
Amy should accept the proposal.
“But you haven’t said ‘will you marry me’?” Amarachi said to Dave
smilingly and presented her left finger in such a sexy way that got every other
person around clapping for her gesture even when she was yet to accept the
“Will you marry me, Amy?” Dave finally said and grabbed her middle
finger without waiting for a yes and slipped the ring into it and kissed the
golden ring.
Amarachi pulled him up and jump on him as kissing ensued. Dave took
her into the parlour to meet others as the engagement kiss lingered and claps
overtook the moment.
Coming to the couch, Dave quietly dropped Amy there and tapped her on
the cheek.
“I bless the day I found you,” Amarachi said but still shy because of other
girls around, “but I hope you’ve changed from that skirt pursuer you’ve been,”
she whispered into his ears and nibbled it, making Dave grin.
“I even have a surprise for you,” he said as a reply.
“Tell me about it,” she said gleefully feeling as if they were all alone in the
parlour while others weren’t.
The other girls with Chibunna continued with the celebration while the
love birds continued whispering into each other’s ears and laughing out
“I have denounced the fraternity,” Dave announced with joy.
Amarachi’s happiness at that moment knew no bounds. She was
exhilarated and thoroughly satisfied with that news. She couldn’t just hold her
emotions back, so she started kissing him and even tried to drag him into the
room but Dave knew what the privacy could lead to, so he just carried her like
a baby into the kitchen and made her sit on the worktop and then kissed her
engagement finger the second time.
“I think the news of your denouncement is sweeter and more
encompassing to me than that of the engagement because I already knew
you’ve been carrying the ring about for ages,” she mocked him and they
started laughing.
A lot was left to the imagination of the visitors at the dining table who
kept imagining how hot and romantic it would be in the room without
knowing that the love birds were just having a normal heart to heart
conversation in the kitchen.
“I couldn’t imagine the embarrassment when the ring fell off my pocket
the day I came to propose,” Dave reminded him and the laughter continued.
“But wait,” Amy said with smiles all over her, “why are you always result￾oriented kind of guy who does things secretly without seeking the help of
“How did you mean?” Dave asked to seek more explanation, even though
he knew exactly what she meant.
Amarachi pushed him away a bit and got down from the worktop, went
to the pot and got a fried chicken lap and came back to him, and then fed him
with it.
“Take a bite,” she said and forced a wholesome of it but it was too big for
his mouth to wrap it up, so she nibbled his mouth.
“You want to kill me?” he asked and took a bit, “this is okay for now,”
“No, take more,” Amy said insistently.
Dave took another bite but Amy pulled his lips closed and began to kiss
him, and then collected the meat from his mouth and ate.
The two lovers had fun in the kitchen but didn’t go beyond fondles and
romance, and then went back to join others.
Throughout the day, they were busy eating and drinking while Dave and
Chibunna stole the show with their numerous jokes and jests, making
everyone happy and thoroughly satisfied for the day.

To be continue on Thursday
