My heart ached seriously. I was devastated, I was
broken, I thought I had found my soulmate. Only if I knew
he was my sister’s boyfriend.
I pushed the steering harder and drove really fast not
worrying about the consequences.
“Folasade you are a fool” I shouted at top of my voice.
I’ve never been this sad in my entire life.
“Jay make it snappy” I said impatiently.
I can’t believe he proposed. I’m extremely excited. I can’t
wait to tell Sade so we can scream together.
“I’m done, you can stop dragging me now babe” Jay said
“I love you, I love you, I love love love you, I could say I
love you all day long” I said kissing him.
“Trust me, I love you more” Jay said looking into my eyes.
Thank God the party is over.
“Can I steal her for a moment” my best friend Vanessa
“Yes but only for a minute” Jay said frowning.
“Thanks” Vanessa said as she pulled me away.
“Okay Nessa you can stop pulling me now” I said
“You didn’t tell me Sa….” Vanessa was about to say
something but she was interrupted by my mum
“Seun we need to go home now” my mum said and pulled
me away. I quickly said bye to Vanessa and told her we’ll
“Jay can you come to my house tomorrow, I need to
introduce you to my sister” I said holding him.
“No problem, I’ll be there” he said as he kissed me for the
“Can you guys stop being mushy and Seun we need to go”
my mum shouted.
“Alright MA! bye Jay.
“Folasade! Sadee come and open this door na” my mum
shouted as we kept on knocking.
“Maybe she’s sleeping sef and my body is badly aching
me” I moaned.
“Ki lo sè ómò yi gann ( what’s doing this girl sef)” Mum
After fifteen minutes of knocking the door like mad dogs.
Sade finally opened.
“What’s your problem? Didn’t you hear us knocking the
door” Mum hissed and left.
“What happened to you? You look terrible” I asked
“Nothing!” Sade rudely said and went upstairs.
I’m very positive it’s because of that guy she behaved like
“Sade, can I come in?
“Yessssss” she shouted.
“How was the party you planned today?
“I don’t want to talk about it” Sade said and kept her
I stared at her not knowing what to say.
“Uhmm I got engaged today” I said smiling.
I removed her headphones and shouted
“I GOT ENGAGED TODAY!
“Congrats” She said and kept her headphones back on.
Congrats, really Sade really. Maybe I should leave her for
now, I guess she had a bad day.
“Uhmm I asked him to come tomorrow, so you can see
“Okay! You can get out now” Sade said pointing towards
I honestly was about to cry, but I just couldn’t at least not
in front of her.
“If you need me, I’ll be in my room. I love you” I said
Why was she so mean.
The next day…..
“Mum, he’ll be here in 5mins” Seun said giggling.
What am I going to do, Seun can find out I was the event
“I can’t wait for you to see him” Seun said holding and
squeezing my hands.
“I’m so excited” I said with little sarcasm.
Seun looked sad but brushed it off and smiled like the
perfect creature she was. Only if she knew I’ve always
wanted to be like her. I felt bad because I’ve been treating
her badly, but I can’t get myself to be nice to her and it
“Mum he’s here” Seun said as she ran to open the door.
What am I going to do.
“Hey babe” Jay said as he gave Seun a kiss, which made
“Good afternoon ma” Jay said.
“Anò mi ( my in law)how are you?” Mum asked.
“I’m fine ma” Jay said.
He’s so handsome. I want him badly.
“Jay this is my sister Sade” Seun said pointing towards
“SO SADE, HOW COME YOU NEVER TOLD ME SEUN’S
YOUR SISTER?” Jay said.
