“Is it true that you love my princess?” the man asked.
“We are just friends sir.” Segun replied.
“Friends? I heard your good deeds and the way you saved her from that rascal.” he said.
“I just did what anybody in my shoes will do.” Segun explained.
“But you took a great risk by standing up against those guys and i must commend you.” he said extending his hands for a handshake.
“Thank you sir.” Segun said shaking hands with him.
“But i’ll want you to think about dating my daughter because she has been disturbing me and i get my daughter the best things.” he explained.
“Okay sir.” Segun replied. They both continued discussing until the celebrant showed her face.
“Dad. Excuse me i want to dance with him.” Nike said smiling.
“Oh! You are free to.” her father replied. She took Segun by the hand and dragged him to the dance floor despite Segun pleading to be freed as he doesn’t know how to dance. Immediately they got to the dance floor, everybody left for their seats to watch the celebrant dance.
“Nike, please i don’t know how to dance.” Segun whispered.
“Please just shake your body in line with the beat.” She pleaded.
“I will just be making a fool of myself.” he stressed further.
“Segun please.” she pleaded.
“Okay.” he replied.
Segun tried his possible best to dance in line with the rythm while Nike danced perfectly as if she was born to dance. The rest of the guest joined them in dancing and when the dance floor became rowdy, Segun had to pull out and he walked to a seat without notifying Nike. He sat down on an empty seat and brought out his phone.
“Hey!” she called.
“Hello.” he replied.
“Can i sit with you?” she asked.
“Why not?” he replied pointing to another empty chair.
“My name is Mercy and you?” she said sitting down.
“My name is Segun.” he replied.
“So you are my cousin’s boyfriend?” she asked smiling.
“No, am just a friend.” he replied.
“Don’t tell me that. You need to see how Nike talks about you every now and then.” she told him. Segun kept mute trying to digest what he just heard. “Tell me, don’t you feel something for her?” she asked.
“I do but that doesn’t mean i’ll make it known to her.” Segun lied.
“Be right back let me get you something to drink.” she said and ran towards the main house to get him a drink. Nike walked towards him with a angry face.
