The first day Muna laid his eyes on Chinomso, he was mesmerized with how beautiful and charming she was. They met in church but didn’t exchange words. Chinomso’s enchanting face and smile had registered in Muna’s subconscious mind and this made him search for Chinomso. His hopeful desire to meet Chinomso was fruitful and love had it way.
The proposal was unexpected and Chinomso actually forgot to say Yes as she was swept off her feet when he popped the question.
How We Met
The first time I ever laid eyes on her was at some function in the village. I don’t remember what the function was as meeting her has paled everything into significance. The surprising thing is that I didn’t take notice of her immediately as I was really engrossed in what I was doing that day but she registered in my subconscious and later on, her image kept on returning to haunt me. It became so bad that I became a detective and started investigating “who was that girl?” “what’s her name?”. Finally I found out what I needed to and proceeded to track her down via Facebook. I felt like a child unleashed in a candy store when she accepted my request after I introduced myself.
Surprisingly, she refused to give me her number, as I discovered later this was a reflection of the amazing home training and values she had. She was friendly, well behaved, beautiful but not vain, confident but not proud- I was blown away. The conversations went on for hours and FOUR months. And couple of months later, I got her number- I felt like I won gold at the Olympics! Oh! It felt so much better to talking to her on the phone. The conversations went on for hours and hours and it seemed like it was just for a few minutes. It seems we never ran out of what to say. A month after that we met again for the first time…and the friendship was cemented and for the first time ever…I fell hopelessly and ridiculously in love. By December we started dating and I knew this was the one I could not live without. So, on her birthday I asked her to marry me…and we all know what she said! I cant wait to say “I do” and for the rest of my life “I will”. WIll love her, cherish her, protect her, respect her, teach her and will be the best husband she could ever have- by the special grace of God who has blessed me with her!
He first saw me in the church during an event on 1st of January 2012 but I didn’t see him. 3 weeks later I got a friend request message on Facebook from him introducing himself and how he saw me in church but couldn’t say hello because he was busy and asked whether we could be friends. He asked for my number which I didn’t give him until the end of April but we were chatting once in a while on Facebook. The first day he called we got talking as if we had known ourselves for years, we just clicked together. The sweet thing was that we actually started dating in December which I did small shakara as a babe, lol… But accepted his request because I really liked his personality and him as a person and the rest they say is history.
The Beautiful Proposal
The proposal happened on November 9, 2013 which happened to be on my birthday. It was in Abuja after my youth service year and he planned to come on Friday for the weekend to celebrate both my birthday and passing out with our friends. All of a sudden, he called and said he couldn’t make it again that he had an urgent meeting in Lagos. I got very upset and cut the line on him and he tried calling back but I refused to pick his call and he then sent a text apologizing that I should try have fun with my friends and he will make it up to me. I felt really bad and not ready for any of the weekend plans again but two of my friends were there and encouraged me dress up so that we could hang out. So the next day which was my birthday morning I woke up by the sound of the ring bell but I was too tired because of the Friday hangover, the bell rang three more times before I stood up and getting close to the door, the bell rang again and I angrily screamed “am coming”. I opened the door and to my surprise Muna was standing there with a bouquet of flowers. I was in shock for 2 mins because I just spoke with him an hour ago, I screamed and gave him a hug. We spent the afternoon together, we went for lunch and then to yugoberry. That evening we had planned dinner at a Chinese restaurant with our friends and all of a sudden the lights went off and for the lights to come on, he was on his knees saying a lot of things but I was just in shock because I didn’t see it coming and I even forgot to say Yes to his proposal and everybody was screaming say Yes. That was my best birthday ever.
