How They Met – Their Love Story
Bride – I met Chiji through a friend-turned-sister, Edwina. (let me spare you all my drama and long stories and be brief as possible, lol). Eddie (like we usually call her) randomly told me about her friend in church whom she’ll like me to meet, I was a little uninterested because I didn’t want to meet anyone (I was minding my business lol). She talked positively about him a couple of times and encouraged me to talk with him and that it doesn’t hurt.
She asked for my consent in giving him my phone number, which of course out of respect and trust cant stop that. Now he had my phone number but still took him forever to call (lol oh well, he finally called after a couple of weeks). Eddie and I were in her car one afternoon back to the office when Chiji called her to ask how she has been, she asked him if he had called me, little did he know we were together and the phone was on speaker, he replied back saying “our darling has refused to take her calls oo (in Nigerian accent)”. That was apparently the first time I heard his voice (anyone who knows Chiji knows his voice is to die for) and that got me blushing. Unknown to me that his number was among the calls I had been missing recently and always and failed to return, Eddie suggested that I take and store his numbers for subsequent calls. The rest is history.
