Hello Blogsville,

Its been a while since have done a post on interesting stories... hehe.. so am bringing you the latest..

Relax with a cup of cocoa... actually Milo to be precise and enjoy.. xxoxo

This is the story of Bimpe  and Segun.

I am naturally not someone that likes to talk or entertain stories from random stuff.  That a little intro about me.  I recall when and where  Segun and I initially met and I  would not call it love at first sight..

Rewind back to my college days during A levels. I have a really close sweet friend called Tayo. We call her T, we have been friends since childhood. As the only girl  amongst four boys and  the baby of the house, it can often get lonely and boring although I like my space it can get really BORING.This time around, I decided to spend my Easter holls with my bestie.   We had already planned what we would do and things we will get up to. I was more than looking forward to it, ever since our move outside London, seeing my friend Tayo has been zero due to busy  schedules and tight deadlines. This time around we were  going to make the most of it.

The plans was to stay for 2 weeks and just have fun, fun, fun and a bit of studying. A particular night, I think it was on a Thursday to be precise. Tayo's younger bro wanted chicken and chips and would not stop bugging us. We decided to go to one of their favourites locals. In London  there are so many chicken and chip shops  its quite a miracle   that all of them are still in business despite the increased competition.

We got there  and placed our order,  as we waited, a car drove past, reversed and stopped right in front of the chicken  and chips shop. The dude that  came out of the car,  turned out to be Tayo's friend from school  in fact he was her senior back in Nigeria. He was staring  intensely at Tayo, which  irritated and provoked her to give him a long hard stare, only for her to start giggling and calling his name. Before I could ask why she was giggling, they were both giggling, hugging and talking too. My first impressions  of him were  he  looked unkept..lol. I cant stand dudes that sag, it so off putting. She introduced us and I barely gave him any eye contact.

That was it for me but Tayo would not stop going about him and how humble he is and how  respectful  he was toward ladies blah blah  at school back then. Now, he is at Imperial Uni studying Engineering blah blah. I was totally zoned off. It comes across as if I am uptight well I am actually. I come from a family that first impressions count  and failure to make a positive impression within split seconds, well  let just stay that the person will not be taken seriously. My Dad and Mum brought us that way and it instilled that in our  systems.  Although I try to think am more open-minded.

Back to the story, within the couple of days I had left, Tayo was totally catching up with her new buddy etc  whilst I focused on catching up with revision. Two days before I left for home, Tayo mentioned how  his friend wanted to see us again and that he would like me to be there. She mentioned he said something about me being beautiful and he would like my phone number if I didnt mind. I completely declined without any  further thoughts at all. In fact I was so  keen to get home asap. Tayo on the other hand,  was just so happy to see a friend from her local school and meeting more of them.

It was a year after that episode and off  I went to University and was excited to start and enjoy the experience. Again, this dude was still lingering around and  had asked on several occasions to have my number or facebook name etc. Which I declined, I simply didnt want him  to entertain him maybe there other factors at the time I could not be asked. . But everything changed when I needed his help. I had been struggling with one my modules and it was quite tough I remember discussing my frustration with Tayo who mentioned she will find out if she could help. She later  suggested her friend could help during our conversation. I demanded who the friend was and it was the dude I met last time. I was adamant and completely declined (I could not be asked was my excuse). I really felt I could this and would do it, despite all the help from the lecturers and class mates I just felt my work was not good enough. Two days before the due date, I could not longer contain the stubbornness  I went on facebook looked for him, messaged him and gave him my phone nymber. He didn't call but he replied saying he was busy.

Initially, I thought it was a tactic  but he said he was genuinely  busy. I  had to stress that I desperately needed his help and it would be appreciated and  that my deadline was 42 hours away and am  yet to write something substantial. He eventually called me and we talked, it was kind of weird but anyway we talked, he helped me, I passed and I got a 1st in that assignment and module. I called him, told him the news and decided to treat him to a dinner for helping. I was nervous on the day and that was when I knew I could either have a crush or something is up. We talked about a lot of things, weirdly enough I was relaxed, I really thought I would be uptight and but I was not. We shared a lot in common, he reads, I love reading, he  loves watching movies, he loves comedy, he loves collecting comic books, he loves trebbo lol and I do too.  He  loves mangos, he loves tennis, he loves learning new languages, cashew nuts, etc. In fact, we spent the time talking about our favourite things, movies   and actors and life in general.  It was fun and that day was the beginning  of an amazing friendship.

In my second year of University  he asked me out over a romantic meal on my birthday. I said Yes and it was lovely and we had the most amazing time together. Can I just say my first impression of him didn't change immediately but with time and communication we got there. He didn't sag when we met afterwards and said he was only trying  to do boy boy on that day lol. Whatever the case, I allowed myself to see past that and I felt good about us. I actually took some time out to do some research and prayer. Yes o.  He  opened up to me too and  he thought I was stush and very much on a high horse (I am) lol but he said the time   he decided to hand it over  i.e. the pursuing  was when I contacted him. Nice.

I was in my final year about to start exams when things began to change. Why!! is the question that keeps coming to mind.

I will have to continue next time.

Thank you for reading.

God bless you, JESUS BEST and love best.. xxx
