The whispered YES! – Dinner3 min read
Photo session practically over but @udimee and his crew were still at it. It was as if they could not help but click…what was my own, I enjoyed the attention. @udimee and #myPrince kept whispering and then @udimee headed to the manager’s desk. Soon after, a private table was organised for us all. @udimee clicks continued and we were ushered to the buffet table for a variety of menus. I was too excited to have more than salad and I kept chatting away. The interior of the hotel was a marvel and I had launched into the story of how #myPrince and I had to come back to spend a few days. He just kept smiling at me and complimenting (chai…#myPrince knows how to make somebody blush o!). It was hard concentrating on my story after that…LOL.
He realised he had my full attention after the tank was full of attention. He decided to launch into a series of questions. So how did you find the roots? The people we met before then? Are you having fun? What were you thinking when we were at the roots? LOL…I did not waste time in telling him how I felt like I was in African Magic back at the roots (see matter o…winks!). Went on to tell him that I thoroughly enjoyed every moment of the day up until the very moment I was speaking. He just kept smiling. His smiling was not a strange thing; he does that a lot whenever I’m talking. Ewweeee! #myPrince launched into another tank full of compliments and that was the end of dinner for me. In my usual custom, I tried to distract him but he was not going to stop. I picked up my phone to help ease the force of his unending compliments but #myPrince won’t have anything to do with it; he instantly got on his feet and came to my side without his words stopping.
Before I knew it, #myPrince was on one knee. Oh my God!!! Was what I kept repeating, over and over again. I was too overwhelmed! I did not suspect he was about to propose. Honestly, I do not think I heard half of what #myPrince said. I was close to tears. @udimee and his crew kept clicking away and unknown to me, one of his crew members had been recording all the while. I was totally unaware of what was going on around me as #myPrince asked me to marry him; it was just #myPrince and I. I answered in a whispered YES! as he slipped on a very beautiful ring. My dream ring: different and unique. My charming prince had done it again…he is my beauty for ashes. I felt so blessed and still feel really blessed! The evening could not have ended in a more beautiful way; #myPrince’s evidence of love on my slim fingers.
Finally back in the world where others were, I pointed accusing fingers at @udimee because he knew! LOL…a beautiful memory it is indeed.
