The line went dead, and I just stood there looking at my phone in my hands, all i can think off is Denis constant demand and being so difficult to me, he was sweet and loving in the beginning, my father’s P. A. Before he passed on,
everything was willed to me, being his only child, I gradually fell in love with Denis after dad’s death, he was always there for me, comforting and supporting, he also told me how much he has always loved me for a very long time, and with time I fell for him because he was my companion, we dated for some time and Denis was so nice and he became the air that i breath and after which we started planning for our wedding, Denis changed gradually after our introduction and I got him his dream car on his birthday, he demand i put my house in his name, he said i should put the house that dad willed to me in his name because he cannot live in the same house with me knowing that i owe the place that he won’t be comfortable living in it and being that i love him so much I called my lawyer and the paper was processed, I handed it to him and he was happy and our big wedding is coming up next month, he will be moving in next week, which i have looked forward to but Denis as much as i love him he sometime say and do things that hurts me, I’m ready to do anything for him but he throws my every mistake to my face nothing i do seems to make him happy this days, it worries me and i pray and hope he change if we get married, it will be difficult living with him if he continues this way.
I dressed up and drove out to get all we will need, my girlfriend stays with me and i also have house helps, who clean up the big house, I drove out with Binta my friend we stop at the fruit and vegetables shop, I have being shopping there for years and i have never met the owner of the place, but the workers there were so nice that always make me to tip them gladly, I have never met the owner of the shop, I always meet the workers, as i was picking things with Binta and one of the staff the owner appeared from inside, he introduced himself to us, he was a young handsome man, he greeted me warmly and told the staffs to attend to me very well, after getting all i wanted i waved them good bye
“Joda, that guy is so cute but he only fixed his eyes on you, he likes you do you notice that…
“shut up Binta , I’m almost a married woman, he saw my ring probably that’s what he was looking at and i have being a good customer probably his staff told him about me that was why he was so cordial with us, and Denis warns me never to take off my engagement ring, and it has helped in putting guys far away,within a month i will be Mrs stop playing with my head and let Denis don’t hear that from you or i have to explain myself, if you like the guy why not say and stop robbing it to my face ….i only love my Denis and no one can take his place in my heart…
“yes, I know but i don’t really like that Denis, he can be so controlling I don’t even know what you saw in him before falling in love, anyway My own is to be Chief bridesmaid, even if i talk from now to tomorrow you will never listen.. And yes i like that guy but he didn’t really looked at me only got eyes for you …
“thank God you know i won’t listen so zip up your mouth…Denis is all i want, nothing will change that…
We drove down and got all Denis asked for before going back home.
