Damn right she said yes! And so i was faced with yet another problem;mary’s dress style.Call me oliver twist or whatever but i just wanted the day to be perfect for me!
I guess my patron saint must have heard and interceded on my behalf.Few minutes,i received a beep on my behalf.Few minutes,i received a beep on my phone;it was a message from firstbank;your account have been credited with …. Just then the idea hit me and i executed it immediately.
I rushed to gallaxy’s boutique,got a nice gown,wrapped it and sent it to mary with a note saying ‘really looking forward to tonight’. God knows i prayed hard for the dress to fit.It did.
I met with mary at exact 6pm,i almost didn’t recognise her as the dress completely transformed her.She looked like a goddess.Looked like my night was going to be perfect afterall.
Now the tragedy.We arrived the venue and it looked like the party had been moved.I became the most confused man on earth as i searched invain for any feature indicating that a dinner party was going to hold.Then i remembered Ayo and dialled his number.Switched off! Was the devil out for me?
Mary looked at me with a confusing look;i couldn’t tell what was on her mind.alas,she spoke.’i think we are in the right place.’ Had she gone mad?i thought.I tried Ayo’s phone again and it went through.Thank God!
‘Ayo,you guys changed venue?am at oba’s hall right now.’ i said
‘come right in,we are about starting’ i heard the excitment in his voice.
About starting?here? I wondered.Was there an inner complex inside the main one? I told may what he had said and she gave me that ‘told you’ look.As we went closer to the hall,i sighted the notice on a little paper. WELCOME TO DLCF DINNER PARTY. How come i missed it initially.
We progressed inside the hall and i still couldn’t find any feature of a dinner party.It was definitely not the right place,i concluded.The place was arranged with old benches occupied by some average-dressed and some below average-dressed persons.At an extreme end i saw two large coolers then i looked further and saw the shocker.In another poor looking but large paper,it was boldly written, WELCOME TO DEEPER LIFE CAMPUS FELLOWSHIP DINNER PARTY.It immediately rang a bell.This was it.DLCF is deeper life campus fellowship! Jesus christ!…
