By Amah’s Heart
“Marry me” he said to her as they sat opposite and very close to each other in an exclusive lounge.
Veronica looked at him speechless. She wasn’t sure of what she heard.
“Marry you? She asked just to be certain that she was hearing correctly
“Yes, I said marry me…. Vero. you’re the best thing that has ever happened to me and it will be a great pleasure to spend the rest of my life with you. I love you and want you to be my wife…”
She was suddenly uncomfortable, she was not sure anymore.
This was the fourth week of meeting him, they started dating few days later after meeting and three weeks later he was already proposing.
No doubt she loves him right from the second they met.
It was in an event and they clique so well and felt inseparable.
Her faith had restrained her from getting intimate with him yet. He had tried to but she turned it down.
One of the questions she asked him was
“Are you a true born again?
“Ofcourse I’m a Christian and a worker in my church. my parents were both Evangelist before an unfortunate accident claim their lives, leaving me and my elder sister. We were groomed in a Christian home, baptised and took our Faith serious… although I fall out ones in a while but God bear me witness that s never intentionally. Sometimes my flesh desires take hold over my entire being…yes Vero, I’m a true born again. And my reasons for coming to you was because I saw godliness in you and it was as if the holy Spirit is asking you to make you my wife….”
Veronica had blushed at the last statement.
Peter was quiet convincing and she was happy that he was a true believer.
This conversation took place few days after meeting for the first time and just few weeks later he was asking her to marry him.
Even though she loved him but she was not sure if he was truly the right one for her.
She was a strong believer and usually consult God over everything but recently she has been a little distracted with Pete
Even to the extent of skipping her Bible reading class which she was one of the coordinators
She sometimes forgets to pray at night and even morning, unlike like her. majority of the time she was on a call with Pete.
He calls her during her bedtime and she will speak for a long time with him and doze off after then, he wakes her up with an early morning call.
They will continue talking until she was out of bed and straight to the bathroom trying to get ready for work.
Pete showers her with too much attention and love.
Buying her gifts and different accessories.
Veronica felt really loved and even though it seems her prayer life was getting cold but her relationship with Pete was getting hotter.
“Vero… babe….you haven’t answered me…”?
He tapped her bringing back her attention to the present
“Ehmmm… Pete. I don’t know what to say. I haven’t even prayed about this…i don’t know how to reply you…Seriously…!
“Why, you should atleast say something. I thought you love me as much as I do…? What could be the problem…
He asked taking her hands into his while squeezing them gently.
“There’s no problem Pete…is just that is not yet upto a month that we started dating. Although it felt like I have known you all my life right from the first day of meeting and loved you ever since but…
“But what again… there’s no “But” Vero. The love we have for each other is enough. You don’t need to know somebody for years or decades or even months before your heart tells you that they are the one for you. A day is enough to know. a week is even too much…a month is just to prolong the relationship. Any serious guy who is ready to settle down will not see a woman for him and begin to prolong the relationship… except if the relationship is just for fun…or he doesn’t have the financial capability to settle down. I’m too old to be running in cycle Vero. I have what it takes…money is not a problem for me. I manages my father’s business and also work in a big pharmaceutical company that pays well. I have money and love for you Vero… If you don’t want or love me enough…I will totally understand and move on instead of wasting my time…
Veronica quickly hushed him
“No…no… Pete. Is okay…I wil.. will marry you…
Pete started grinning from ear to ear.
“That’s what I’m talking about. Vero…I don’t have a ring at the moment to engage you but I promise that i will order the best most expensive ring online and have it delivered tomorrow or next… hope that’s okay by you?
Vero smiled with a nod. Pete poured one of the expensive drinks that he ordered as they cheered to their new engagement.
Deep down Veronica hopes she was doing the right thing.
