A weird turn on our anniversary

As I write to you right now, I am in jail. Now some of you, if not all, might be thinking : "Sharon, what are you doing in jail ? ". I can explain...It all happened on a very special day.

I woke up that Friday morning with a huge smile on my so beautiful face. It wasn't just any friday it was OUR Friday. I quickly went to the bathroom to brush my teeth and take a shower. I then checked my phone, still no messages...I thought he was probably sleeping. I decided to have breakfast. I went for something light: 1 slice of agege bread and some 'British' tea ( Thank God for my mom, she brought some from home). You know waking up in Lagos can be such a beautiful experience... I checked my phone again, still no missed calls, no messages..I must have been hallucinating. How can Greg not call me on our 5th anniversary ? Are you kidding me ? I was not happy so I decided to call Greg myself..
*phone rings*
Greg: Hey sweetie
Me: Good morning sir
Greg: Good morning princess, how was your night ?
Me: It was fine sir...what about yours ?
Greg: It wasn't so good...I wish you were here with me..The cold almost killed me
Me: hmmm na wa o...sorry about that SIR
Greg: (laughing in between) what's up with  the 'SIR SIR SIR', ma ?
Me: Nothing o
Greg: C'mon, I know you ... tell me what's the matter. There is nothing we can't survive together, you can tell
          me everything.
Me: Oga , wetin be today's date ?.
Greg: wait let me check...today is the 16th .. OH MY HOLY GOODNESS ! baby, I completely forgot !
         I'm so sorry...
Me:  no shele,  will you come pick me up ? so we can han..
Greg: I'm sorry baby... I have an important meeting with my staff, I can't afford to miss it. It's really important.  
         I suggest...
Me: It's ok...no need...
Greg: But..
Me: Its fine..leave it...
Greg: I'm so sorry...baby, forgive me...

At that point I didn't want to hear his voice. I love him, yes but I was annoyed, so I just hung up. I didn't want to think about our anniversary. I was just in a bad mood. I know some of you reading this would say I'm too emotional or whatever.But I really looked forward to having a blast with him. I was really dissapointed. We hadn't been together since we both came to Nigeria. He was planning on building a brand with his company...I just came to visit my family.

How could he have forgotten our 5th anniversary  ? I mean for crying out loud...I 've been talking about it for the past few weeks. We even made dinner arrangements and all those romantic stuff young couples do. Anyways  I wanted to cool off..so I called Koko and I told her to meet me at the beach. While i was driving I planned on ignoring Greg for next one month..But then again that would give him the liberty to cheat on me. Well he has never cheated on me before...I think. I got to my destination. I spotted Koko. We got some drinks. I opted for Super Malt ( the best drink ever, in my candid opinion). She decided to drink Red Bull. One thing about Koko is that everything is funny to her. I explained what happened, she laughed and said : " Don't worry, you stress yourself too much " ( with that typical Scotish accent ). In my mind I was I like : " This one sef ehn".

As we were talking, a police officer just approached me and asked if I was Sharon McDickson. I gave him an affirmative reply. He then said: "You are under arrest". This was the most embarrassing moment of my life. I struggled with the man, but my Gahd !, he was too strong. People around were just looking  at me  like someone that just stole a fowl in some  random village. As we approached the car, Greg just stepped out holding a megaphone. I didn't understand what was going on. Was Greg some kind of special agent or what ? I am not a criminal for all I can say. The only crime I think I ever committed was stealing kpomo from my mom's cooking pot...The next thing I heard was:

"YOUNG LADY YOU ARE UNDER ARREST FOR STEALING MY HEART, I HEREBY SENTENCE YOU TO A LIFE TIME RELATIONSHIP WITH ME, YOU SHALL HENCEFORTH BE TREATED LIKE THE QUEEN THAT YOU ARE IF ONLY YOU GIVE IN TO MY WISH.WILL YOU MARRY ME ? "

Now to make things worse, Ololufe (by Wande Coal) was playing in the background.
I couldn't utter a single word...For a moment, I felt like the earth stood still.

I said: " yyyyeeeesssssssssssssssss" ( that has got to be the longest "yes" ever pronounced )

He then put a diamond ring on my finger. I couldn't help myself...I had to ask..Was this diamond real ?
We just had to seal the moment with a tender kiss...

Well, the only jail I ended up in was Greg's room hehehehehehehhehehehehehe !

So long...What an experience !


this is just a fraction of my imagination :) xoxoxo
