Day 5

#UnionBank100BellaNaija

They say we find love in the unlikeliest places. Maybe not in the gym, but not with me. Though I never felt the need for Gym maybe because I looked too scrawny to have made my muscles go through all that torture.

So, I was new in town as a result of my new job. I remember riding along with my cousin in his car; cruising and admiring how beautiful the town is, especially it’s ladies. Stuck in a light traffic, and In the midst of the thought of how well I have come to like the town, I saw a pretty damsel walk past us, carrying what looks like a Gym bag, slung over her left shoulder. She was a beauty to behold. Everything about her said she was a woman. Her smiles revealed a set of small white teeth which contrasted vividly with her dark gums.

I quickly memorized the name of the Gym she entered. A day later I registered for gym session in the said gym as per sharp guy; hoping to see her again. To at least have a glimpse of her beautiful face and heart warming smile and eventually make my move.

On Saturday of that week I saw her, this time on the treadmill, running so effortlessly. I was so love struck that I couldn’t move.

Any observant member of the gym would notice how ridiculous I looked. I located the next treadmill close to her; perhaps to be noticed but I got none of that, apparently because her ears were plugged by her headset.

I tried saying “Hi” and some other antics to get her attention but all to no avail. So I decided to let today be After all this is my first gym session, many more days of getting an opportunity to meet her are yet to come.

The next day happens to be Sunday, and as of the norm, my cousin had to forced me to the church. To my utmost dismay, as I entered, I saw the beautiful lady preaching in the pupit. She happens to be preaching about “Letting go”. I nearly cried not from how touching the message was but that of the realization of the fact that she was a lost battle. I asked my cousin about the preacher and he said “that’s one of our pastors wife”. At that moment, I couldn’t breathe. But “pastors get taste sha” I said to my self.

Because of a lady who is married to a pastor, I spent my hard earn cash in this economy to register for a gym class I wouldn’t attend even if gun was placed to my head. My God those village people are still after me even after changing location and Job. Do recession don’t hold them too.

At that moment, I felt like leaving church and going home but what held me was the fact that I only carried offering money. I can’t be trekking because my cousin won’t agree to follow me without the church service getting closed. It was indeed an Irony for me to be listening to a message about “Letting go” when I am crushing about the preacher. God has spoken, so shall it be, I consoled my self.

To tell you how much I detest the gym, I tried going back on Monday to revoke my membership on the false ground I didn’t like their services based on the terms and conditions in the membership contract. On getting there, as I took some stride to the management office, I met a beautiful lady just coming out from the office. I was shocked and embarrassed when she asked “how did wooing pastor’s wife went”.

She continued by telling me how love stuck I looked when I saw the pastor’s wife. She went further to demonstrate it. I laughed to cover how embarrassed I looked. That is how we started talking. She had a humorous air over her. She is somebody that has a way of letting others forget their trouble. That is how I forgot to cancel my gym membership and our discussion took a new level when I asked her out. The rest they say is history !

Congratulations and we’ll be in touch!
If you didn’t win, do not be discouraged, keep your entries coming!

    Wow! what a story.

    Congratulation, Shola. I’m so happy for you. I think your story can be turned into a romantic movie. Smart script writers can breathe life into your story and make something good out of it.

    Congrats again, Shola. Great job Bella Naija & Union Bank.

    my name is joy solomon.. i have been out of horrible re;ationships for a long time ago…love is crazy..i met this wonderful guy on social media facebook precisely….thou we met on a social platform for christians.the good thing we could unite on the platform and share scriptures..a friend of mine invited to join the platform,thou i was feeling reluctant…..am not really a fan of social media.i eventually joined because i was persistent..little did i know a young man called samuel picked interest in me..thou initially i never had any interest in him..but samuel has good sense of humour,he is passionate about christ,he is friendly and easy to get along with.
    we did not court for a long time..but i will not advise anyone to do that but i took a step,and God honoured it,his love for God really got me impressed.finally the love of my life proposed to me at about lastyear on the 15th of december 2016….one of the happiest moment in my life.in our short marriage we have faced experiences but our love still remained forever…..if anyone would tell me i would meet my man on social media…i never believed in it thou….but it has worked for me…am really greatful to GOD.
