A funny feeling crept up the back of Harry’s neck, the kind of
feeling heal ways got when he was excited about something.He
followed Atimma and stood justttt behind her.“I love You.It’s just that
I am not buoyant enough to marry you now.Give me some time my
darling.”He said huskily, laying his hands on her shoulders.“What if
I’dddddecide to give you the money for our wedding?I can afford it.”
Atimma said.Her tone was sharp,her manner indignant,and her
eyes sparkedke a hammer on an anvil as she stared at Harry
directly in the eyes.Harry nodded and sat gently on the bed.“And
after marriage,we are going to survive on my okirika business?”He
paused and said in a painful whisper.“Give me time.You won’t like
to stay here in a one bedroom after our wedding.”“Iwill.We can
start from here.I can’t wait any longer!”She said with a
contemptuous curlll on her lips.“Are you sure aboutis?”She
defiantly turned her head and me this gaze.“Yes I am.I am doing a
good job Harry.I can support you without anyone knowing that the
money is from me.We’ve dated for four years already,I will be thirty
by July, how long should I wait more?”She turned away, looking at
the picture frame of her and Harry notthe wall.She sat down and
lowered her head.“What if we plan the wedding for next Year?By
then I will be fully settled.I mean I will have aaa good job by then.”
Atimma shook her head in disgust.“What is wrong with giving you
money to come marry me, pride?Will it take away your manhood
Harry?I said I will assist you.I will cope!I am doing a good job.My
salary can take care of you,myself and your mom.”She yelled
angrily.Harry moved closer so he could sit beside her.”You have
to understand me.”Lowering her head,she said softly, “I think you
never wanted to marry me.You’ve been using me for four good
years Harry?”He eased back away from her and stoodup.“Okay,
Fine!let me prove you wrong,bringgg the cash,let’s plan our
wedding.”Harry said loudly.She turned her head and gave him a
small smile.“When should we plan on seeing my parents?”She said
in a slow delight.“Next weekend.I will inform uncle Ettete and my
mom.”Atimma nodded in approval and hugged Harry tight to herself.
“Finally,we are going tond the rest of our livesgether my
love.”She said in soft whispers.Harry took her into his arms and
kissed her softly on the lip.She gave a short laugh and said in a
teasing tone,“Mr and Mrs Harry Edet in few months right?”He
laughed.“Soon baby.”She knelt beside him and chuckled.“I just
can’t wait to get married to you Harry.”He glared at her but said
nothing.She cuddled close to him,closing her eyes until she slept
off in his arms.
