said.

life,…..

“why cant you understand,. I never loved you,….

Now i’ve seen the person i truly love,… I dont

the air.

”Tope,.. Remember how we started,….. So

Angela was having a good time eating her food

and staring at Richard,… She has finished eating

and was enjoying her drink,….. She doesnt feel

like leaving him alone,…. She wished she could

spend the rest of the day with him,….

“I’m sorry for all the stress i’ve made you pass

through,…” she said breaking the silence.

“It’s nothing,…… “ he replied her not looking up

from his plate.

”Richard,…. “ she called him romantically placing

her right hand on his own,…. He couldn’t believe

what was happening,…

”I’m sorry if i had been mean to you,….. I’m

sorry for misunderstanding your good intentions

towards me,….. I’m ready to marry you once

your family accepts our union,….. “ she said with

tears in her eyes.

Richard couldn’t stop smiling ,….

He was overwhelmed with joy,…..

She the continued:

”I wanted to be sure of my feelings for you,…. I

dont want to tie you down with another man’s

baby,…. I dont want my marriage with you to be

conditional,…… I want to marry you as the love

of my life not just as a father to my unborn

child,…….. I’m sorry for hurting you,…… ”

He couldn’t stand watching her cry,….. He went

to her and hugged her,…. He planted a soft kiss

on her lips,….

”I love you so much Angela,…. “ he whispered

into her ears.

”I love you too”….

“I dont know how possible it would be for us to

visit your family this weekend, I cant wait to

have you as my wife,….. “ he asked her

excitedly.

”I’ll discuss with my mother, then i’ll give you

feedback on that,… ”

”My sister and daddy are at home,…. Do you

mind saying hello to them,.. They have been

dying to meet you, they will be so happy to meet

you and to hear of our union,… ”

Angela agreed to follow him to his house,……

On getting to the house,…. The cook rushed at

her…….

”Madam, you’re welcome,. Thank God you and

oga are back together, welcome back ma,… “ the

cook greeted her.

She was surprised,….. The whole scenario

seemed familiar to her,.. She kept on staring at

the portrait of her that hung on the wall,…

Vanessa and her dad walked into the sitting room

and saw her,…… Vanessa hugged her tightly,…..

She stood still,…… Everything and everyone

seemed familiar,….. The twins were brought in to

meet her,.. She adored them,…. She settled down

on the sofa,..

The door opened minutes later,… Desmond and

Nancy walked in,….. They exchanged pleasantries

with Vanessa and her dad,…… As they were doing

that,…. Angela’s gaze was still fixed at the

portrait,…. She turned to see another portrait of

her and Richard smiling at each other hung on the

wall,…. She was loosing it,….. The cook walked

in with a wrapped gift,…….

“Madam,….. I’ve kept this waiting for you to

come so that i would give it to you,…. This was

the gift you bought for oga,….. You remembered

the day you were planning to surprise him With a

gift,…. You walked into the kitchen to tell me of

your plan,..but Oga walked in on us and you hid

the gift beside the freezer,…. Oga carried you out

of the kitchen, before i knew it you had gone out

with him,……….. I remembered the gift one week

later and kept it,….. ”

Angela doesn’t understand what he was talking

about,…. He walked to her and gave her the gift,

……. She held the gift staring at it,…..

”So Nancy and Desmond, hope you’ve chosen a

date for your wedding? “ mr Johnson asked

them.

The names striked her,….. Richard has been

upstairs,… He went to shower before he would

drop Angela off,…. He came down to meet a full

house,….. He was wearing the pair of jeans and

shirt Angela chose for him when they went

shopping,…. She loves seeing him wear them,…..

Angela stood up,…. She looked from the portraits

to Vanessa and her dad, from them to Nancy and

Desmond, from them to the gift in her hand then

to Richard who was looking sexy in his casual

outfit,…. Everything then flashed before her,……

She remembered how she met Richard, their first

night together,….. The pregnancy,….. The attack

and the taxi driver,.. Then the accident,……..

Everything came flashing before her,….. She

made a loud cry that terrified everyone,….. She

screamed again, but it was louder this time,…..

She passed out,… She meant to fall on the hard

tiles but Richard was fast enough, he caught her

on time.…..
