The man responded to her questions, I greeted her.
Woman: are you my daughter’s fiance?
Me: yes, ma.
She studied me and continued the discussion with Profit’s father while I used the chance to memorize what I should say and what I shouldn’t say, the tension in me were evaporating when Profit appeared from nowhere and sat down closed to me, she used her hand and crossed my shoulder.
Profit: are you hungry?

I could see Profit was enjoying the tension in me, I was thinking her question was to enable me escape from her father’s presence but never realized that she just came to make sure I remain there, wahala for who no get father to help am oh!
She quickly joined them in discussing with their language while I sat mopping at them like a small boy.
The man wicked eyes were on me and I started wondering what I have done wrong, I quickly realized that Profit’s hand was crossed on my shoulder, I instinctively wanted to remove it but Profit added another of her hand and leaned on me.
It would have been a romantic moment if we are not in the presence of her father, the man cold look nearly make me pee.

He nodded and entered inside his car and drove out, guests started leaving that is when I realized I have stressed myself mentally and physically that I started feeling drowsy when I was eating sef.
I rushed and took my bath then lay on my bed, I didn’t know what happened but I knew I was awaken by hunger seeing Profit standing well dressed with breakfast on a table ready for me.
Profit: you should stop sleeping the way you do, you can be kidnapped and taken to another country yet you won’t wake up, good morning my love.

Me: am fine.
Profit started her I won’t talk to character again, she refused talking to me even when I talked to her she will only respond with her hands or do what I asked her to do.
I didn’t realize I haven’t checked my phone so I rushed to get it and saw lots of congratulating text messages and lots of missed calls, I was able to call some people and sent group messages to those who congratulated me, I put a word to my deputy to handle matter arising.
