AND I MARRIED HER IN A CLOUDLAND



After attending three consecutive lectures that lasted for about 2½ hours each, I became very tired and exhausted that I was beginning to involve in sensation of spinning around and teetering freely in accordance with the direction of wind. I could see a figure in more than ten multiples. All these were the consequences of Hunger. So I immediately reached for the nearest restaurant in the school as I walked feebly to Ematex restaurant, sat down to order for what I would eat.
"Hello waiter" I called in a very low and weak voice, waving at a young lady standing by, she walked to where I was sitting and said "good day sir, what can I get for..."
"Anything please" I muttered. 
"But anything is nothing, just specify and I would get it for you if...if we have...have it, she stammered.
"My dear if your husband comes back from work tired and hungry and you could read that expression on his face just get him what would make him regain his strength and make him happy", I muttered again
"Okay sir, she replied as she went straight to the canter, dished out swallow with Egusi soup, brought it to my table, then reached for the freezer and get a chilled Coca-Cola drink.  I rushed the meal in no time, but never wanted to leave immediately as I felt I could relax in there for sometime. The drink finished and I ordered for one more. Just then as I was strawing the drink in my mouth, and looking around to see every creature passing, I suddenly spotted a lady who inclined on a dwarf wall of Ofrima building standing as a demarcation between the students and the deep wide Open void. She was dressed In a white top and ash skirt, that was a pharmacy student, you would easily know them. Her beauty was what captivated me that I kept staring at her. She had a comely figure which was stem-thin. Her crescent shaped eyebrows inclined slightly as she saw me staring at her. I yelped at being caught. Her languid eyelashes of velvet-black blinked once slowly as if to incite me over. It was then I summoned courage within, and decided to walk up to her.

"Hi, I am Hillary", and You, I said, calmly.
"I am Julie", she responded warmly.
"Julie?" Could this be a Swahili name, I thought to myself as I paused a bit as though it was like my first time of hearing the name.
She observed that and then said,
"I am Juliet, Julie is just the short form, my course mates do call me that.

"Oh! Okay that is nice, I responded.
"I know this is random, but I just wanted to say you caught my eye. I am running late for a meeting, but I would love to get your phone number if that's okay?" I said again.

She stared at me for a while and said "okay", nodding  in affirmation. She gave me her cell phone,  and I quickly dialed my number at once.
"I would give you a call when I get home, remember to save my contact as Hillary, I left the scene, as I waved her bye.

I felt I have finally gained the whole world after asking her out and she accepted.

The night suddenly fell and I picked up my phone to call her and fortunately she picked the call at once.

Hello Julie, how are you doing, to be frank, I was happy that I met someone like you today, seeing you alone made my day a blessed one. You are really beautiful" I complimented  her.
"Oh! Thank you. But I don't know you, tell  me more about yourself", she said in a very soft calm voice which transmitted me into
another planet.

"Yeah, that is the reason why I called, would you mind if we spend some time together, which day would you be free" I asked.

There came a sudden silence as I waited for her patiently to give me a response

"Well, let's say this Saturday" she replied.
We spoke for a while and I ended the call. My heart was filled to the brim with so much ecstasy as I slept like a baby that very night.

That very day came, I called her again to remind her. she said she was almost dressed but never knew where we could meet.

"Oh! Sorry,  meet me at Genesis eatery,  I replied, then cut the call and waited for her because I was already there.

After minutes, I spotted a lady just as I was looking around, who stood about  some distance away from me and immediately, I became so nerved as the hairs on my skin rose and stood firm.
I rose up to meet and hug her then take her to my place but on getting closer to her, she wasn't the one, I immediately channeled my way outside, reached out for my phone in my pocket to make a fake called just to avoid getting people notified on anything that was had happened.

Wow! So people can just look alike like this, I said aloud, then went inside again.


After few minutes, I suddenly spotted a figure approaching the entrance door, "could this be the Julie that I have been longing to see? I asked myself, then I quickly dialed her number to confirm.

Oh yeah! She is the one, I sprucely rushed out to meet  her and guess what!

She is damn Beautiful!

She had a sculpted figure which was twine-thin. Her waist was tapered and she had a burnished complexion. A pair of arched eyebrows looked down on sweeping eyelashes. Her delicate ears framed a button nose. A set of dazzling, angel-white teeth gleamed as she blew gently on her carmine-red fingernails. It was a pleasure to see her flowing, moon shadow-black hair. Her enticing, constellation-black eyes gazed at me over her puffy, heart shaped lips.  She has a cheerful personality, which I adored. Not content to be just another drone, she wore vibrant clothes and in a very Decent manner.

"What took you so long, I asked in a calm voice.
She gave her reasons but her sugary voice alone made me forgot her excuses and lateness as I began to swim in it. I took her inside, alerted one of the waiters to get her what she wanted and mine as well. We were served. We had some gists and played along as we eat. It was all fun.
It was from there we got to know more about each other. I spent so many time with her but never still wanted to let her go because I was really enjoying her company.

"Julie!" I called her,
"Yes",  she responded.
"Wouldn't it be nice if you would know where I live,  or do you have a tight schedule today?" I said again in a low tune.
She paused for a while, and then said,
"Okay, no problem, let's go, hope it's not far"
"No... No... No, it's not far.
We stood up and left for my Place.

We got to my place, I opened the door. And guess what! My room wasn't organized, I forgot to tidy up the room before leaving. I tried to explain but she said, don't worry about that, I understand, we can still arrange it up together. In fact, don't bother yourself, go to the bathroom, shower  and freshen up, I will do the cleaning alone.

I changed immediately and went straight to the bathroom, and came out after few minutes.

"Wow! What a splendiferous arrangement!" I  exclaimed as the whole place was looking heaven, even the kitchen.

"This is a wife material I got for myself" I thought to myself.
"How is it" she asked with an alluring smiles on her face.
I couldn't say a word either because I was still marveled at the new look of my place.
"But could she be real or it just a pretense?" I thought to myself again, just  then she interrupted.

"So What will you eat as dinner so I can quickly prepare that for you before I go?" She asked.
This statement alone caught me finally that I concluded that I would marry her. I don't mind if it's just few days we met.
"Just prepare anything, I will still  eat. The food stuffs are there, take anything and prepare, thanks" I replied.

We engage into a relationship which lasted for almost three years. I finally took her aback with the statement,
"Will you Marry me?" I begged in a soft voice.
And in no hesitations, she accepted, I took her home, introduced her to my families, they approved the marriage, we did the  Marriage rites, fix a date for the wedding. The date came And there the marriage kicked off, we were happy after we were joined together as one, then DJ did as usual. We danced and danced. I was already in the deep realm of dance when I suddenly heard a voice calling.

"Hillary...! Hillary..!  are you still sleeping, don't you have work today!"
That was a familiar voice, I continued dancing, but then the morale had reduced and transformation was already gradually taken place.

The same voice continued again,

Hillary...! Hillary...! don't you people have work today?"
It was then I  Immediately open my eyes that I discovered that I was in the dreamland and the voice calling was that of my Mum when she was trying to wake me up from sleep.

I quickly rose from the bed, wanted to head straight to the bathroom but realized that I haven't prayed, I went back, picked my Rosary, began with the joyful Mystery, I checked my time and discovered that it was already some minutes after eight, I wore back the rosary on my neck, made a brief prayer and left to prepare for the  day.
