He promised to arrange an interview for me at another bank, that has opening in an Abuja Branch, within a week and we’ll go from there.
That’s exactly what I’m talking about…they would make you lose an opportunity of a lifetime…a chance at financial breakthrough and a chance to help your family to a boy that has loads of other options.
How is that fair?Besides, if they had retained both of us, I would have had to leave anyways…I was told that the Bank does not encourage marriage within the organization. One person would have to leave. That’s another form of discrimination but it is what it is
You see now that I’m not crazy?”
That was the first time Folahan hinted at marriage.
Such selflessness, such integrity…
That was the day I actually fell in love with Folahan. I liked him all along but what he did and how he reasoned left an indelible impression on my heart. As I was about to alight from the car, I gave him a full body hug and said
“You are too good…I don’t deserve you”
To my surprise, he warned me never to say that about myself again.
“If you are worth Jesus’ blood…that should give you an idea of how valuable you are.
Never cut yourself down.
Never see yourself as unworthy of anyone or anything
The value you place on yourself is the value the world places on you
Could you rephrase that statement please?”
So I said “You are such a kind person…I’m happy God brought you to me”
“That’s more like it” he said as he made a move to kiss me on the forehead but somehow we ended up locking lips (my fault, I thought he was going for the lips). It was like 5 to 10 seconds of heaven until Folahan pulled back.
“Wow! That was good…
I don’t wanna get used to that yet”
