The three people arrived at the venue of the event in disguises. Folarin was looking out for Omowunmi with the disguises. He didn’t seem to have much luck. He knew that he would have one last chance with Omowunmi and it had to go well. The old women tried to cheer him up, they all took their front row seats at the event and waited for the main event. After about two hours of performances by different artistes, DJ Debo arrived on stage to much fanfare with a dramatic entry to the stage. As his performance wound down, he took the microphone and asked the beautiful Omowunmi to come on stage. As Wunmi got up, Folarin caught sight of Wunmi in a dazzling dinner dress. The make-up was modest and her hair was packed back like Princess Meghan Markle’s, during her wedding with Prince Harry. Folarin’s eyes glittered and he knew he was in love. He asked why he had let this beauty slip from his hands. He thought to himself, Omolara is nowhere near Omowunmi and it became obvious to him that he had made a mistake by actually letting the disagreement with Omowunmi linger in the first place.
As Wunmi climbed the stairs of the stage, Folarin waited for the right moment, he clenched his fists in apprehension. When she arrived on stage, Debo gave her hug and a kiss and then brought out what looked like a small square like box that had an engagement ring. He knelt down and was about to open his mouth, Folarin shouted “Wunmi, I love you I will always love you. Remember that I will be your knight with the shining armour.” Wunmi turned she knew it could only be Folarin who was making the poetic declaration. The women gave him a nudge and he got up and tried to run towards the stage. As he tried to climb the stairs, he was held by stewards who prevented him going further. Wunmi turned and burst out in tears. It was like she had forgiving Folarin for his silliness. Folarin started crying too and commenced his apology speech to Wunmi. Debo didn’t understand what was happening. He grabbed his piece of present and walked away from the stage in a rage. He was embarrassed; he wondered how he will be slaughtered on the altar of social media. Wunmi alighted the stairs of the stage and rushed to the waiting arms of Folarin…So she loved Folarin after all, perhaps she was doing shakara after all.
The two old women gave each other thumbs up and slithered away from the scene.
Omowunmi and Folarin were back again. Happy Valentine!
