“What the hell is happening here?” was the first
statement i made as i alighted. I was lost for a
Kelvin held my hand and said “You are about to
find out” as he pulled me along playfully.
Though i knew where we were but i could not
wrap my head on what we were doing there. We
were at the airport and i could not help but
wonder if kelvin was going to take me on an
unplanned trip. “Kelvin, i cant travel without
informing my parent” I managed to say as i
followed him.
“And who said you are traveling miss?” Kelvin
said as he grinned widely. “So what are we doing
here?” i asked confused. “You are about to find
out” Kelvin said and he squeezed my hand.
At that moment i wished i could look into kelvin’s
head. I looked at the distance we had covered
behind me and i could not help but wonder what
the surprise could be. I still had my eyes fixed at
my back when i heard a loud shout. I looked
before me and i was surprise to see a crowd of
people. They were mostly press. They carried the
identification of different mass media and they got
to work immediately myself and kelvin came to
the spotlight. Kelvin’s security men performed
their duty and we were secured from the crowd. I
knew getting involve with kelvin would make me a
public figure but i never expected it so soon. I
was for once grateful for the way i was dressed.
“Kelvin! What is going on?” I unconsciously
screamed out, not minding the crowd. Kelvin bent
over to me a bit and said “We are here to
receive….” kelvin was interupted by the loud
scream from the crowd. I followed kelvin’a gaze
and i got the shock of my life. “OMG! forreal?” I
Coming toward us was the President himself and
a pretty lady, heavily surrounded by force men.
Saying i was surprised was an understatement, i
did not even realise when i covered my mouth
with my hands. I knew kelvin could go to any
length to surprise me but the shock i got was just
“Dont do that in public” Kelvin said has he
removed my hand from my mouth and held my
hand. We walked toward the president together,
with me following kelvin’s lead from behind.
I stood at a point feeling inferior as i watched
kelvin hug the president and the lady with him
one after the other. Though i also belonged to the
rich class, i did’nt have political power attached
to my family status. This made me feel alittle
inferior. I was still lost in my thought when kelvin
tapped me on my shoulder. That was when i
realised the lady with the president was right in
front of me.
“Have heard alot about you” she said with a
smile. She came forward to hug me and i hugged
her with the “Who is she expression” on my face.
She later released me from the hug and said “I
am Loretta, kelvin’s baby sister”
“Ohh” i exclaimed and hugged her again.She
only smiled and hugged me back. “I see you two
are getting to know eachother” kelvin said,
interupting myself and Loretta.”Yes and will love
to spend more time together at home, once dad is
done” Loretta said as she released herself from
the hug. We all laughed and i looked around for
the president.I ended up seeing him addressing
the press.Kelvin also excused himself to greet
some of the top politicians present.

Thirty minutes later, the president was done with
the press and he was escorted to his car with
loretta. Myself and kelvin was also guarded to his
car. I was almost at the car with kelvin when
someone called my name from behind.
Surprisingly, i saw Mr.larry. He was coming
toward me but was stopped by a security man.
Kelvin signalled to the man to allow him and he
came forward.
“I never knew we are going to end up at the
same event” i told Mr.larry.
He smiled and exchange pleasantries with kelvin
before requesting to have a picture with us.I
agreed and we did.He had a bright smile on his
face has he left.I gussed he wanted act
familiar.Who wouldn’t?
We arrived the president house and was ushered
in by the security. It was in the same compound
with kelvin’s apartment but it was a different and
bigger building.
All the people present went back at the door and
only the family members were left.
“You are welcome” kelvin’s mom said with a
smile immediately she came out of the house. She
hugged the president and asked after his well
being before moving to loretta. She hugged me
next and then kelvin.We all settled in the
livingroom with me sitting next to kelvin after
receiving a warm welcome from kelvin’s mom.
The room was silent for awhile before kelvin
cleared his throat and said “Dad,meet my Fiance.
Nancy Williams”
“Oh! Come over here dear” the president said
and i could not help but feel shy as i walked over
to him.I bent alittle and he hugged me, patting
my back lightly. ” I must confess am not
disappointed at my son’s choice.I hope you are
ready to walk down the aisle with him in few
months.I will love to meet your parents too” The
president said with a smile and my heart skipped
abit at the mention of marriage..
My heart skipped a bit at the mention of
wedding.I looked at kelvin for reply but he only
winked and looked else where.
“I hope your parent wouldn’t mind having dinner
with me on sunday.Am really eager to know my
inlaws” the president said, interupting my
thought.I smiled and told the president that i
would inform my parent.
“No my dear, let kelvin do that. Boy am sure you
are man enough” the president said and kelvin
I returned to my sit beside kelvin with lots of
thought running through my mind. Everything felt
too good with kelvin but i could’nt put out the fact
that I was rushing my relationship with kelvin.I
could remember how sweet Jordan was when we
started but along the line i found out how
aggressive he could be. Though i trusted kelvin
completely but he was just too good to be true,
and this made me honour the thought that just
maybe,he could be lacking in some areas as
well.Since i was yet to figure out the areas where
kelvin was lacking, i felt as if i needed to slow
down a bit with kelvin but the president was
talking about marriage already.I silently prayed
never to regret my actions.
“Nancy, why are you so quiet? Are you shy?”
kelvin mom’s voice brought me out of my
thought.I smile and told her i was fine before she
ushered us to the dining room.We all had a nice
meal of pounded yam and melon soup. According
to kelvin’s mom,she personally made the
meal.We all showered her with compliments, in a
bid to appreciate her cooking skill. After the meal,
the president went upstairs with kelvin’s mom and
i was left with Kelvin and Loretta.Loretta was fun
to be with, she took me to her room and told me
alot of things about herself, we also had fun
arranging her wardrobe.
Time checked 5:30pm, i announced my departure
and though the siblings did’nt want me to
leave,they saw me off to the door after informing
their parent.
I said my goodbyes to kelvin’s parent before i left
with kelvin, in his car.The drive home was quiet,
just has i had alot on my mind, i gussed kelvin’s
mind was heavy as well.
