“ En En… I am listening SIR…” I said trying to exhibit as much Christian brokenness as possible.
“ You see, Sister Timileyin, I am a very straightforward person and you know I say it as bluntly as possible but honestly for the first time in my life I am short of words, I never knew Love matters could actually make a talkative like me speechless. I believe Papa has told you about my proposal, so there won’t be the need for me to bath you with my saliva …” he said
“ Yuck! why on earth would he add saliva to the irritating narrative of him proposing me” I literally screamed in my head.
At that point, I really felt like throwing up but I knew Papa was somewhere in the corner, so I tried to comport myself.
“ Bro Kennedy, can we go outside to discuss this?” By the time I was through with what I had in mind for Bro Kennedy, it could paint a negative picture of me in front of my husband to be, so I wanted to control the situation.
“ Ok”… He said with a smile and I once again saw his disjointed, too much gap dentition.
“God forbid, I see this kind of teeth on my wedding day” I said under my breath…
“ You said?” He asked as we walked outside the fellowship center.
“ I was talking to myself”
“Ok… I am with you, Sister Timi” He said as we got to a private place…
“ Bro Kennedy, please and please I beg you in God’s name, don’t you ever see a vision about me. I mean anytime you see me in your dream, beat me out of it, because if you don’t, I might kill you .. Yes ooo, I might kill you in your dream..”
“ Ha!” Bro Kennedy said
“ Yes!, because you are not God’s perfect will for me in marriage!”
“ Really?, how do you know that?” Bro Kennedy asked
“ Well, I have not seen you in my dream and I don’t intend to …”
“ Oh, so it is until you see a person in your dream that Proves that such a person is God’s will for you…” he asked
“ Exactly!” I replied
“ My goodness, I actually thought you were spiritually matured, Choosing a life partner should not be primarily based on visions and dreams. If I like a sister and I am attracted to her and she possesses the Spirit of God. I see nothing wrong in speaking to her about my feelings. I have always thought you are the kind of woman I would love to marry, but from what you just said, I think I am having a change of mind. I won’t want to marry a woman who lives her life by dreams and visions, because she may not be able to differentiate between dreams from God and the one sponsored by the devil…. Someday, she might see me in her dream trying to kill her and she would believe it hook, line and sinker, believing it is a revelation from God….Good day Sis Timi…” I watched as Bro Kennedy who I was meant to give some words that will make him regret ever thinking about me walk out on me.
“ Did that just happen?” I had to ask myself as I blinked to know if I was awake or asleep.
