W3. Plotting.

I guess it's only appropriate that I stop looking at him like he's the anti-christ and say hi. Suni whispers something excitedly to Toba, I don't have to be a mind reader to hear what she said. Toba's face tells me.

I put on my happy face and wave excitedly to Toba, as if I really want him to come over and join us. Right.

The ten seconds it takes for the "happy couple" to make their way back to the table ,I use to comport myself. I can't be letting him think I'm completely against their marriage....yet.

"Yale..."
Haha. I think this boy knows my mindset already sha! Is that defense I hear in his voice?

"Tobaascccoooo Saucee!!" I give him a hearty handshake, "How far now, nice surprise!", I fire an accusing look at Suni,"Didn't know you were joining us for lunch", then I smile back.

"Yea, spontaneous decision. You know how me and Suni roll"
Oh, the boy is feeling deep.

"Apparently not! So 2 week's huh? You guys definitely don't waste time!"

The three of us sit down again, Suni of course, feeling like she's now got backup, scoots so close to Toba its like she wants to enter him.

"When you've found the one, you've found the one" I giggle, not intentionally. Suni gives me the cut eye. "I've let many good things pass me by in the past, just because of my formerly indecisive nature, but I refuse to let that happen again. I'm..." he looks at Suni, who of course is already staring at him like he's the messiah, " We...are sure about this"

Oh Puke. This is really grossing me out. What's wrong with these two idiots?

"Toba, it's as if you're using me to practice what you'd say to you guy's folks, but it's ok. I can act that part easily-" My alarm beeped. Shit it's 3:55 already, breaks over. "But unfortunately, I don't have the time for practice, dress rehearsal this evening?" Me and Suni giggle, Toba stares at me. Why so serious??

Suni uses this opportunity to jump in "Damn I forgot your not your own boss, like me"

"Well forgetting is just one of the many symptoms of a porous brain, we should check that out"
She slaps my hand. "So can we meet after work, we gotta start working out the details. 2 weeks is a VERY short time"

"Yea yea, just call me, I'd be home." Suni stands with me so we can hug.

"We are going to have a very long talk Akusuni. And DON'T bring Toba!" I manage to slip the message in her ear before our hug broke.

"So Tobasco we shall be seeing right...."

"For sure For sure" he's rubbing his nicely lined beard like he's a mafia don. Ode!

"Ciao!"

I don't bolt off fast enough to hear Toba say to Suni "Sooooo...ssssheeee's not happy."

No Kidding.

The thought that's on my mind when I sneak into my office 10 mins over my break time isn't that I'm late. Nahh. It isn't even that I still have a million phone calls to make before day's end and neither is it that I have to finalize a presentation for tomorrow morning at 9. It 's not dwelling on either of these very pressing issues but on Suni's mental condition and how I could save her from herself.

There's something that I'm missing here. Either Toba is shady as hell, my personal favorite and most logical reason, or Suni is hiding something from me. Something like the main reason why she's throwing out all logic and jumping the broom with "He's the oneee" Toba. The girl CAN be spontaneous and she CAN be irrational, but..... hmm. Verrrry sketchy. I really need to get on this tip of what's going on......fast.




Ronke.
Haha.. that's soo my highway to clarity.

Ronkus Ronkus. I love this girl, she's my cousin and all but Jesus, this girl can TALK! She embodies "gossip". How she knows everything and everyone's business to the most secret detail beats me. It's like shes omnipresent.

She would know something, hell anything, about Toba.
Her numbers saved as "Amebo" on my phone, it didnt take me long to find her number.



"It's before 6 oh! What is is with people not understanding the phrase "call me after 6?""
Her voice always sounds like shes complaining. Which she always is.

"Is that how to greet your elders?"

"Ohhhhhhhhhhh Yale I'll drop the phone on you oh! My minutes!"

"Cheapo! Ok ok ok, are you in the library for long today? Want me to pick you up?"

"Errr...I have a paper due tomorrow, but I'm almost done sha. What's this about? Cause I don't know since when did you started INVITING to pick me up?" She's sharp this one.

"Oh-hhh, must everything be give and take? Ca-"

"Yes...it must be give and take"

"Finne! I just want to find out something important"

"Sure sure sure, ask me after 6. Or when you see me at 7, I should be done by then! Muahs!"
And she was gone.

Well, hopefully she can give me some answers.

*knock knock*
Without even waiting for me to say 'yes?' Rita the office secretary popped her head in "Bossman needs you"

"Thanks..." more to myself cause the woman had vanished.

Ok time for work. Suni and her unwarranted disruption in my life and mind would have wait. Later this evening Ronke is going to download all the info I need about Toba and I'd know what to do from there. I might even be lucky enough to get the kind of info that would get me to either push the wedding further or excuse me entirely from planning a disaster.

I need luck today God... Luck.

S2 W8. Ignorance is Bliss

Always talking! Ronke can NOT shuttup. Lai lai. She was on her phone when she entered the office.....without knocking! Might I add. She froze for a split second when she saw me. Like she was surprised.
“E ye o! Yale since when??”
“I should as you the same question.” She was holding a Swiss Chalet take out bag in her hand. What the… “I see you brought lunch…” I eyed the bag.
She held it up “Yaaaa…..” then dropped it again “Seems like I’ll be eating alone.”
I did NOT appreciate the way this conversation sounded. I felt I was sharing my man. I don’t know. This was just not rubbing me the right way. “Mhmn…” Or maybe I was just being paranoid. Ronke, loud mouth as she is, is still a sweetheart…………………………
Shafa coughed and stood up. “Ronke what’s really good? This is a pleasant surprise.” He pointed to the couch on the other side of the office. He walked to my side and sat on the table beside me.
She smiled to herself, like she understood something and it was funny. “I was just in the hood o, you…

S2. W19 - We need to Talk

I had booked marked 1 page so far. And that was because I felt I was being too picky. It was called Adonai. I almost didn't find it as it wasn't on the first few pages of the google search term, but somehow for some odd reason I had clicked through 5 ages of google results and somehow Adonai had jumped at me. I loved their slogan. "When there's no where else to go" It was simple but strong. Their website was very simple but I could tell it was professionally done. It wasn't a random person with no experience whatsoever in web design that decided to piece together a site, this was well thought out. Their choice of words, their images...Very marketable.
So far with everything I had read, I was impressed. Felt almost as though there were talking to me specifically. So I had bookmarked it. I was going to marinate on this a bit longer. I needed to anyways. 
My bladder started complaining again. These two creatures wont kill me o! Every time they wan wee wee.  I put m…

S2. W21 Where do we go from here?

Life is the number one entertainer of all times. I have to give it a round of applause. I don't know how long I have been lying down here. Probably day 3 now I estimate. I haven't looked at my phone but I know its been ringing. Shafa....probably Suni... I wont be surprised to see Ronke's name on that list. Bitch. I turned my face away from the ceiling back to the wall. I had deduced a pattern sequence in my red wall. I could find it again. My phone vibrated again.
What I can't really understand is....why this is breaking my heart so much. I mean. Shafa doesn't have iron running through his veins. His a human being. And like a human being... he's wired to mess up. I'm laying here. I've cried out all my insides. Ive not eaten. I've not showered. I'm putting my life on pause because of something that was....is...inevitable.
But man....it hurts. It really does.
Life MUST  go on. Its getting back up that matter right? OK now. I'll get up. And get o…
