Dinner Part Party 2 (final)

I seriously did not know what came over me,i

wasn’t suppose to pick the call but i did

anyways and i almost regretted it.I was dumb-

founded the moment i heard mary’s angelic

voice(if only her dressing could be more like her


I managed to say hi and asked how she was

doing.Funny she didn’t mention a word about

my text message which made me wondeq if

she got it in the first placd.We talked for a while

and i expected her to bring it up until she

ended the call.The taunting thoughts came

rushing to me once more;i was going dateless.

Just as i dropped frustratingly on my

frustrating-looking chair,i heard the tone again:

omo see danger;it was mary calling again.

‘what’s your problem john?’ mary bellowed as i

placed the phone on my ear.

‘i beg your pardon?’. She didn’t sounding like

the girl i just spoke with.

‘you just behaved so chickeny’she blurted.’i got

your text and called you then you made me

look like an .you know what?goodbye!’ she

hung up

who was this girl and what had she done with

mary?she was merely a friend.I know we were

close but i never imagined she could get pissed

for something of this tiny magnitude.I made up

my mind that i wasn’t going to call back but i

waited on my phone expectiog her to call and

she did call.

‘Am sorry’ were the first words i heard as i

placed the receiver on my ear.I remained mute

and i think i taunted her a little but she

continued.’i just got so excited that you finally

asked me out’ finally? Dear God! ‘and so when

you didn’t mention anything about it in the first

call,i felt terrible thinking you were toying with

me.’she paused like she remembered a very

important detail.’were you?’she asked with her

voice sounding as serious as my mechanics


I cleared my throat like an equal

professor,crossed my legs from where i sat even

if she couldn’t see me am sure she felt it,then i

began my million dollar speech;more like a


‘Dear mary,am sorrry you thought am that kind

of guy.I sent you the text with full intention of

wanting to go out with with you but somewhere

along the line,i lost my nerves.I must have been

so parochial not to have noticed the effect my

stunt would have on you and despite the fact

that i can’t replay the whole event in a more

pleasand manner,i do apologize.As for you,you

called me chickeny and beleive me,i felt like a

chicken at that point.’she let out a loud laugh

‘But that’s beside the point.it was an unfair

statement.I chose to forgive you though,but at

a price.You don’t owe me an apology;that’s way

too cheap.What you owe me is a date.Mary,will

you be my date to the party?’

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


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


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


PARTY.It immediately rang a bell.This was

it.DLCF is deeper life campus fellowship! Jesus
