The proposal week

While Chidi was driving, he turned to Cynthia and he asked: “When last were you even around?”

“Almost a year ago. It feels like ages, ” she replied as she looked outside through the window.

“You should visit here more often. You know you have to transfer here when we are about to get married, ” he said.

His statement made her a bit uncomfortable as she adjusted her seatbelt.

“Hopefully that wouldn’t be anytime soon” she muttered.

“You know, I was talking to your mum the other day. And she was like, when are we planning to get married”

“Can we take a break from the marriage talk. At least for now, ” Cynthia snapped.

She had had enough of the topic and couldn’t bear to listen to him go on about them getting married.

“Why are you so uncomfortable talking about it?” Chidi giggled

“It’s nothing, I just have a lot of things on my mind, ” she said.

“Well, I thought since Ayo was getting married…you understand”

“Understand what Chidi! You work like almost throughout the day, what do you expect me to be doing when you’re not around. You’re always busy and I’m scared this wouldn’t work out between us.”

“Relax It would work out. You just have to trust.”

“I know, but you have to give me time to think about it. I have to be ready for what I’m getting myself into,” said Cynthia.
