THEME: THE PROPOSAL
“You haven’t touch your plate of noodles, now you’re demanding for pizza” my husband said. He doesn’t need to remind me, the noodles is suddenly looking un appetising to me.
“I know but I just don’t feel like eating noodles again”. I said.
“No problem, let me order for pizza”. Jeff said.
He was about to order for the pizza when I felt like puking again.
I quickly rushed to the bathroom retching out the remnant of my barely touched breakfast.
“Honey, what’s wrong? ” my darling husband said in a worried tone.
“I don’t know”. I couldn’t say another word as another bout of nausea washed over me and I vomited again
“I think I have to call the doctor because you don’t look fine”. Jess said.
“Don’t bother, it’s probably the flu”. I said trying to convince him, not that I can convince myself that I’m suffering from the flu, though.
“I have to call the doctor, just give me a minute” he said.
I washed my face and managed to walk to the bedroom without collapsing.
I met Jeff in the room pacing up and down.
“The doctor would soon be here” he said.
Whatever, I’m already feeling sleepy so I lied on the bed and slept off.
I woke up hours
Can somebody just tell me what is going on?
“What’s wrong with me? ” I asked Jeff.
The doctor is nowhere to be seen but I’m sure he must have told Jeff about the sickness am suffering from.
“You are four weeks pregnant plus you’ve got the flu also”.
What? Preg what? I know I’m supposed to be happy but I’m scared.
“Tell me you are joking or something”. I said flatly.
“Nope, why should I be joking about such a thing”. he asked.
“I don’t know babe, but I’m scared about this pregnancy thing”. I said.
“Why are you scared?”. Jeff asked.
“I don’t know if I’d be a good mother to our children, I’m scared about parenting”. I told him.
“Don’t be scared honey, no one is perfect, we’d read all about it and we can attend classes for young couples who are planning to make babies and trust me when I say you’d make a great mom someday, I’m also new to this but I’m
Well, his words have soothe my soul a bit but I’m still paranoid though I don’t wanna show it.
“I just hope I won’t be a bad mom”. I said.
“You are gonna be terrific”. Jeff insisted.
I told mom about my plans already so she sent the maids at the mansion to come help me decorate my house.
I have already set everything in the dining.
The table has been covered with a nice tablecloth and I bought some fancy candlesticks just like the one they use in romantic movies.
Mom sent the Butler to come help me prepare dinner and Melissa also came to help.
We are through with the dinner preparation and I’ve sent the maids back to the mansion.
I was left in my house with David, Lisa and the butler.
Lisa and David are about to go also.
“Goodbye, Bryan”. Lisa said.
“See you around, bro”. David said and they both left the house.
I have to go dress up and await Allison’s arrival.
I’m strangely excited about this dinner of a thing.
I just wanna look good to his place, he texted me the address already.
I’m planning to rock one of the evening gowns I sew. It’s a blue sequined gown with an off shoulder and I’m gonna use a gold necklace to match. I don’t really fancy makeup so I might not use any. I have this stiletto heels I’ve not put on before, I think today might just be the day to wear it.
I took my time while bathing, I don’t know why I feel the need to look extra good today.
I styled my hair perfectly and applied only lip gloss to my lips and I got dressed in my dinner outfit.
I checked for a gold purse to match my jewellery and I was set to go.
I drove out in my car and in no time I got to my destination.
Wow, his house is really beautiful.
I sent him a message that I’m outside his house.
💬hi, I’m in front of your house”
💬come right in”
I dropped my phone into my purse and found my way into the house.
The interior is way cooler than the exterior.
“Good evening ma’am” someone dressed as a butler greeted me.
“Good evening”. I replied.
“Master Bryan said I should usher you in” he said.
“Thanks sir”. I replied
“You don’t need to thank me ma’am, it’s part of my work” he said leading the way to the dining room, I guess.
I just followed him and pray I won’t fall flat on my face due to the high heels I was putting on. I wonder how some people manage to put this kinda shoes on for most part of their lives.
“Here we are ma’am” the butler said and bowed slightly.
I was surprised at the sight before me, the dining room was just fantastic.
The table has been set for two and candle lights could be seen on the table.
Bryan stood up immediately I entered the room, he was looking handsome as ever but he kinda look nervous also but I don’t know why he should be.
I hugged him as I got to his side. He let the hug last longer than necessary but I wasn’t complaining because I like being in his arms 😜
We both sat down and the butler serves us the dinner which comprise of tuna casserole as the main course while dessert was vanilla cake with some éclairs.
To say the least, the dinner was fabulous.
Just then Bryan went on his knees, he dipped his hand into his pocket and brought out a box containing a lovely diamond ring. I was just transfixed and I couldn’t move.
“Allison, would you do me the favour of being my other half, you complete me, you are my missing rib, please would you marry me?”. Bryan said in a serious expression. I’ve never seen Bryan so vulnerable before, it’s like he laid bare his heart for me to see.
“OMG!!! Yes I would”. I replied happily. It was like a dream come true for me, I never expected Bryan to propose to me.
“Wow, thanks so much for accepting. You don’t know how glad I am right now”. Bryan said.
“The feeling is mutual dear”. I said and chuckled.
