There is always a meeting point for every couple, and Demeji and Eldretta’s wasn’t different. This two love birds met through Dimeji’s cousin when she was invited to Dimeji’s 19th birthday party. On that day, they had a little argument and that warranted them talking. Their communication continued, it was Eldretta’s birthday and she deemed it fit to invite Dimeji to her get-together party and that sealed their friendship . Their first date was a very casual one with a friend in a restaurant and there was no strings attached. He also impressed her when he went to pick her up from the airport by 7am (leaving the comfort of his bed) when she came back from one of her travels; that tripped Edretta completely and she had more reasons to make him hers…. lol.
Dimeji being a reserved and indoor person couldn’t see what Eldretta was seeing; all she saw even before they started dating was her dream man. Yes! The man she would spend the rest of her life with. She was already seeing the future. Wow…..Only a heart that loves can see good and happy ending like this! How this would happen was still a mystery then. They started dating, and they grew in love, friendship, and deep passion for each other. As usual, Eldretta, has fallen in love with Dimeji, was in a haste to be proposed to because it was already 6years and still counting, how time flies!! And Dimeji, being a gentle man told her to calm down and be patient for the perfect time. Unbeknown to Eldretta, Demeji already had the ring in his pocket but he wasn’t going to rush it. He was going to make it special. He decided to turn the mystery into a reality but in a very unique way, so he planned with his cousin and they planned a fake birthday they were both invited to. When they got to the venue, she entered and was astonished as family members were all present and he knelt down on one knee and popped the 1 million dollar question “Will You Marry Me?” And in tears, Edretta full of surprise in joy said ‘Yes’ repeatedly. Her dream was just in fulfillment as all she wanted was to spend the rest of her life with Dimeji forever…….. Love is indeed beautiful!!!!!!!!
