How We Met
By the Bride-to-be, Chiamaka

I met Shola at the car repair shop (mechanic). I drove in and saw him standing by the entrance. When I saw him he looked cool and quiet, honestly that time I wasn’t interested in a relationship. I was all about my studies. However, I was starting to low key be open a little to possibilities since I was almost done with my studies. I sent a wish to heaven lol saying, “I hope he is Igbo”… As my car was parked at the entrance behind Shola’s car I was kind of blocking his way. He offered to move the car. I thought he said he wants to drive my car, so I went, “you want to drive my car?” We laughed about that.

The mechanic guy kind of started the matchmaking by saying, “Oh, he’s Nigerian too!” Then, I asked which part he said “Yoruba”. After he was done, he drove off. I was looking at my side mirror, saw him stop at the end of the street then he reversed. He stopped beside my car and said, “can I have your number?” I hesitated a little then gave it to him. On a normal day, I usually give out my number to be nice then block the person immediately. Because, as I said before, I eat and breathe my studies. I gave myself no time for anything else. But this time, I didn’t block him. Lol.

Along the line, I stopped talking to him.  One day, he drove past my house and sent a picture saying, “I came around your side today for some errands.” Lol. Then we had the same clinical rotation at the same hospital. I saw him with the white coat and I was like,  Ok! Let’s start talking to this guy again. I’m telling you, he was looking soo good in that coat! ?. I later found out he requested to come over to the same unit as I was, just so he could see me. Well, the rest they say…is history! ?

How We Met,

I met this beauty at the mechanic shop. My car was just done getting fixed when she pulled up and blocked me in. I offered to help reverse her car out and she declined and she said she got it. I just locked up and got into my car and left. I got to a stop sign and while looking at my rearview mirror, I gingered my mind, body and soul. ? I told myself what’s the worst that could happen? Another No. I made the fastest U-turn of my life, asked for her number and she gave it to me with a smile.

As fate will have it, we were in the same hospital for one of our clinical rotations when I was pursuing my doctorate degree and she was pursuing her nursing license. Now here we are!
