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.

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!


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

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-"

" 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. 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. W18 - Sticky.

So we stood outside the door. Photo in hand... and shock on our faces. I was numb. No.. no... not numb...I was feeling very besides myself. Yale put her arm around me.. "We are blocking the entrance...lets go the car.." Seems she had come through... well then again it would be easy for her to snap back. She doesn't have two human beings growing inside of her. She led me to the car.
"So....." Suni sat there like a statue her hands limp on her laps. "Suni?" I smacked her hand. "SUNI!"
"Yea...?" her response was so slow. She turned to me... "What?"
"Well....?" My eyes asked the rest of the million questions I had in my head. What was she going to do? How was this going to work out? One is overwhelming but two? like two babies..? Ah.
"Yale... you're asking the wrong person"
"Should we call your mom?"
She looked at me like I had just suggested I run her over with the car. "For what?"

S2. W17 - Alternative Options

I swear I feel my tummy grew overnight. I'm barely over 3 months and I feel like I'm 6 months far along. I struggled to fit into my mini-maternity pants. They were so cute. They were meant to be for mothers between 1 - 3 months. But no not me. I already started missing my pre-preggo frame. My  ultrasound appointment was at 9:30 and it was 9:12. I had ONLY just finished putting on these freaking pants. I looked like a pregnant goat. I was  SOO showing. Like.. forget XXL sweaters or hobo shirts... my FACE alone was a dead giveaway.  Porky.
*Sigh* No time to sulk. I grabbed my keys and dipped. Yale was linking up with me there and we all know how she gets when shes made to wait. We were going to see baby today! She was excited, I was cranky. Tired maybe. But yes... no going late.
"What have I done now?"
"You owe me TIME... we haven't seen since plus I need someone to talk to."
