In the previous episode, It’s Better Being Single Anyways. We both happily laughed out loud like we had nothing to worry about. I got caught up in the moment and not knowing what to do I laid my head on his chest and held him tight with my right hand. He released my left hand which gave me a better rap around him as I hugged him tighter.
My body began to vibrate with goosebumps all around me as he rubbed and tap my back. The last time I held any man so tight this way was on my ninth birthday when my dad surprises me. This was where he whispered into my ears.., what? OMG Mark!!
Caught Up In the Moment Being Single
This was where mark whispered into my ears and told me food is read. Wait! what? Ooh really, okay. These were my words to Mark. Being single in the end will justify. I didn’t know what I was saying, I couldn’t even remember what we were doing in here. I guess I was caught up this moment romantically crashing me that I wasn’t thinking.
My eyes were tearing so much that Mark had to hand out his handkerchief to me to take care of it.
Mark: Are you ok?
Abena: Yes I am (smiling)
Mark: So then why are you crying.
Abena: I don’t know. I guess I was caught up in the moment. I didn’t what it to stop.
Mark: Hmm really? Don’t worry, go wash your face.
I went into the bathroom to wash my face as Mark said. What if we had kissed what would have happed. Thoughts of what could and couldn’t have run through my mind, but I still couldn’t put the pieces together. I just wish I could tell him I love him but I am scared of what will happen. I was even more scared about what that might do to me.
Food Was Ready and Served
Mark called out that food is served. Well, I wasn’t ready to mix food with my feelings so I put myself together and came out from the bathroom. Man of God, are you sure this is not one of those romantic dinner dates we see in the movies? I said to him as I amazingly watch the splendid displace of the same food garnished in different courses.
He looked at me and smiled and said maybe it is. You will have to enjoy it anyways. So I joined him to make the day a memorable one. You could have been a cook making better money somewhere, what are you doing here Mark. Passion, talents, profession and calling cannot be mixed together darling (smiling).
Now let me tell you a bit about Mark you don’t know. Mark is a thick tall muscled guy who happens to be two years older than me. He was 25 years old and in level 300 when I first met him. He is a preacher of the gospel which you already know by now. Aside from ministry and lectures he is a basketball player and has still created time to play.
My Romantic Evening Date
Now that you know a bit about Mark, let me take you back to my romantic evening date. After enjoying the 3 course dinner he had prepared. He brought out fruit drinks he hid in his polybag,
Abena: you are lucky you hid the drink cos your drinks will never be safe with me hahaha.
Mark: Yeah well, your mother told me to be on the lookout for that so you are late to remind me la hahaha.
Abena: why are you soo romantic and easygoing?
Mark: Is that a crime?
Abena: No, But….
Mark: Shuuuuuuu, I was first created to be a man, the calling of God on my life just beautifies me. Can we watch movies now?
We Continued The Evening With Movies Being Single
We set off our movie journey as he arranged a series of inspiring but romantic movies for the evening. I had nothing to do that evening and so did he. I coiled myself in his arms I got caught up with the dark scenes in the movie. He whispered into my eyes, don’t worry I’m here to protect you he said as he coiled his hands around me.
The truth be told I feel safe around Mark and felt even safer that night than ever. I just wanted to enjoy every bit of what the universe had for me that day, and I did. I just didn’t want the day to end.
Our four-hour movie finally came to an end but I didn’t want Mark to go, so I asked him if he would like to spend the night with me.
Abena: I did want you to go, Mark
Mark: Well I have accomplished ¾ of my mission here today.
Abena: Would you like to spend the night here with me?
He looked at me and smiled as he parked his thing into his bag pack.
Mark: I will have to make a lot of babies with you if I have to spend the night here with you.
Abena: What if I want the babies, your babies, starting tonight.
Mark Accomplished His Mission
Marking laughing held me by the hand and pulled me upstanding. He hugged me and said he had to go. I didn’t want to let him so I held on to him so tight. He held my head and mentioned my name “Abby”, the moment our eyes met he kissed me passionately some much that I let go of him. He said again to me this is why I have to go because I love you.
“I have fallen in love with you Abby, and I came here today to tell you that”. I was speechless and still, I didn’t know what to say. this is what I have been waiting for all this while and yet all I could do was to stir at him. Don’t say anything Abby, just sleep over it ok, he said to me as he walked out of my room…
