“Please you adults should get a room,” Linda screamed.
That got me a little shy as the flash of the camera continued.
I had to stop Larry who wasn’t ready to stop.
“I love you so much,” he muttered out as he fixed his eyes on me.
“I love you too,” I replied.
He lifted me up and carried me upstairs immediately.
We kissed all through the stairs as he climbed.
Seriously, that was the most beautiful day of my life.
He strongly did open a room and gently dropped me on the well-made bed with colorful beddings.
He locked the door and joined me in bed.
I wished it was a surprise or better still; it didn’t happen the way it did, because I was already feeling sticky in my clothes.
But I think Larry cared less about that.
We kissed some more for more than ten minutes before he stopped.
He looked into my teary eyes and professed love to me.
“I know you seek answers to all these happenings today, but it’s fine.”
“Above all, you want to know why I did it and how my mother would feel…right?” he asked.
“Yes Larry, I’m very happy at the same time, confused,” I calmly replied.
“Alright, I will tell you what happened, but you have to forgive me first for lying to you,” Larry softly said as he kissed my neck.
“It’s okay Larry; I understand you lied so that I can feel the effect of the surprise.”
“Thank you for understanding baby.”
“So I want to hear what happened with your mum,” I inquisitively asked.
“Well, Mummy is currently in the hospital,” Larry said.
“What?” I exclaimed in fear.
“No baby, she’s calm and fine,” Larry replied to calm me down.
“Larry how can your mum be in the hospital and we are here so happy?” I asked.
“No baby, hear me out. She fell as a result of her high Blood pressure (HBP), but she’s fine and calm now.”
“You should be in the hospital and not with me; don’t you get it?” I considerately said.
“Baaabbbyyyy…., all is fine. Trust me,” Larry said as he held me so close.
“Are you sure?” I asked in affirmation.
“Yea…she gave her permission, for me to go get you. She asked me on her sick bed if it was you I wanted, and I said yes! She advised I go make you mine and bring you to her,” Larry revealed with smiles.
“Wow! Are you serious about this?” I asked in excitement.
“Yes baby, the coast is clear now,” Larry replied as we kissed and kissed and kissed.
“Can we go to the hospital now?” I excitedly asked.
“No baby, we will go tomorrow. Right now we both have to go join the rest downstairs and party a little before I take you home,” Larry said.
“Alright baby, thank you for choosing me,” I said in appreciation.
“And I would choose you over and over again,” he replied as he stood up from the bed and dragged me up.
He held my hand as we left the room to join the rest downstairs.
Immediately we came down the stairs the flashlight from camera started again.
“Don’t these people get tired of snapping?” I said in an undertone as I hugged Larry’s few friends.
When it got to Linda’s turn, I refused to hug her.
She screamed on top of voice, “you can’t pass me by naa” and forcefully hugged me.
That got everyone laughing hard.
“Drama doll,” I muttered out to her hearing.
I hugged Michael whose facial expressions I couldn’t define.
He whispered something into my ears.
“It would have been me.”
I just smiled and waved it away like ‘just a statement.’
So we made merry a bit, danced and kissed the more.
It was getting late at about 9:00 pm, I told Larry that I needed to be heading home.
I didn’t just understand Linda at all that night as she seemed not disturbed with the time.
I walked up to her and asked her if she wasn’t going to her house tonight.
“Babe, what’s up? Are you not sleeping at your house tonight?”
“I will; this is very close to my house,” Linda replied.
“It’s alright, I will soon be leaving,” I chimed in.
“Congratulations once again my friend, this is huge!”
“Linda, I’m overwhelmed, we will talk later,” I said to her as I saw Larry’s signal for us to go.
I walked up to Larry outside.
“Baby, how are we going to do this?” Larry asked.
“Do what?” I retorted.
“Your car gift of course. You need to drive it home.”
“Baby, please not this night, I will come to pick it up later,” I replied.
“It’s alright, but it’s late, and I can’t let you drive all by yourself,” Larry said.
“But you can’t drive me home while I leave my car here?” I lamented.
“Baby that’s exactly what I’m going to do. I will take you home and pick you up in the morning.”
“Why?” I asked.
“I missed my driver work this morning, and secondly, I would want to see you in your new car,” Larry replied.
We both giggled as he drew me close and stole a kiss.
“Let me take you home baby, hop in,” he said as he opened his car for me to enter.
I smiled and entered as we drove off immediately.******
