She walked into the restaurant and looked around, expecting the worst. She still couldn’t understand why she had even agreed to this in the first place. This was the first time she was going on a blind date. She didn’t really need it. At 25 years of age, there is a lot a lady would like to explore before getting hooked to a man. Well her friends had coerced her into this promising to leave her alone if she did what they wanted.
Someone tapped her and she turned around to see a very tall handsome man. He was probably the most handsome man she had ever seen all her life.
“Hi, are you Yemisi?” the man asked. She nodded, being unable to speak. “I am Chuks, your date for the evening” he said stretching out his hand to her. She shook it and followed him to the table he had chosen for them.
He held out a chair for her to seat and she did. Yemisi had the most amazing time that evening. Chucks was a very good company. They chatted like they had known each other for years, sharing their experiences. She discovered that he is an engineer working at a major real estate firm in the country. They discussed about their past, present and future goals and Yemisi was wowed.
It wasn’t until Chuks reminded her of how late it was before she agreed to leave. He escorted her to where her car was parked and they hugged before he walked up to his car and they drove in different directions.
All the way back to the house she couldn’t stop thinking of the smart, handsome man she had just eaten dinner with. It wasn’t until she got home that she remembered that her friends had organized a sleepover at her house and they knew where she hid her house key. Three cars were parked in front of her one bedroom apartment and she knew that her three friends were in her house waiting for her to return to tell the story of the supposedly ‘awful’ blind date that she predicted would be the most unbearable time of her life. She couldn’t lie to her girls and she was too embarrassed to tell them that she had the best time of her life. She considered running away and staying in a hotel to avoid the mockery and teasing.
Her phone rang, cutting short her train of thoughts. It was Chuks. He asked if she had gotten home and told her how much he enjoyed the date. In the midst of the conversation she told him how she had despised blind dates and what she had told her friends prior to the date. He laughed and told her a strategic was to handle a situation like that. She was amazed at how he intelligently analyzed and solved the situation. At the end of the conversation he told her that he looked forward to the next date.
She was so happy and she knew that she had gotten a fruitful relationship
