O MY SISTER HEAR THE SIGNAL; THE SURPRISE IS ON THE WAY BY MASTERPIECE DAVID OLAWADE
Sister, that brother calls you often than he calls his parent and siblings but you said it doesn’t mean, he is just being nice. That kind of “niceness” is deep oh that he could skip his quiet time in the morning to have an hour of personal time with you on the phone.
He sends you airtime while he borrows airtime from his service provider to ring you if you got what he sent. He could do anything to please you but you feel he has no motive for these.
He takes you out for shopping, to see movies and sends you gifts on different occasion as a bid to win your heart but you think he is running a charity organization. If you think he is running a charity organization, hope you know and he knows you are not less privileged?
He introduced you to his mother on one of their family functions and his mum called you; “omo mi (my daughter)”. Lol, you think the old woman was saying that due to cultural attraction but she knows what she said from the signals she got that you failed to be sensitive to.
His friend calls you; “our sister” as they took you as their own but you concluded that everyone around him are just so nice.
You took his phone and saw yourself as the wallpaper but you said; “that’s so kind of you, let me give you more and better pictures”. He has over hundred of your pictures but only two of his mum. You concluded that all these doesn’t matter and he is just a friend with a different mindset. You are correct, there is a different mindset he has that you are about to be aware of.
He floods his social media timelines and statuses with your pictures when it’s not your birthday, he meant the smileys he uses but you feel; “what are friends for?”
You had a relationship talk with him and you asked him when he is likely to be engaged, he said soon. He told you he desires a lady like you and you responded with a free heart in sincerity; “may God grant you your heart desire”. He sees it as a confirmation and believed the prayer has been answered as he took a step of faith.
Suddenly, the anticipated day came when he invited you to the restaurant. You appeared alluring as usual but you wondered why he chose this restaurant of that status in town. You “cat-walked” step by step as he beholds you from afar and he couldn’t wait to declare his manifesto, he stood up to give you an ovation until you sat.
Everything is still appearing as drama to you as you wondered which role are you playing in the scene. You were amazed that the scene is a table for two and not the usual restaurant of table for five you usually visit with him. His outfit appeals to you more this time because he was well packaged than usual as you wondered why he was appearing in such manner just to have lunch with you.
His motive for having lunch with you is to launch into a relationship with you but you were not sensitive yet. The lunch began as you started eating the fried rice and chicken while he was looking closely at you. You have taken over ten spoon while he is yet to take one as he dropped the fork in the plate and looked at you the more.
You asked him why he wasn’t eating but he said he felt full immediately he saw you. You didn’t know that it was his love for you that made him full and out of the multitudes of his belly, his mouth will speak.
Then he called your name in a solemn manner, looked into your eyes and told you he loves you. You were filled with awe and you responded; ” hope you haven’t taking it too far, we both love ourselves as friends”. He told you not as just friends but as spouses in the long run.
You felt he just cracked your nuts, you never saw it coming, a bit worried and disappointed. You couldn’t finish your favorite meal again and you told him you have to go promising to see him later.
Sister, his approach may be wrong but he has an intention and you were playing along. You aren’t the only female friend he has that should deserve all those attentions if he doesn’t have an intention.
