"Blind Date" A Story by Sotonte1234

It was a blind date so I really didn't have any expectations. 

Are you kidding me
I had lots!!!

Was he tall? Did he have a charming voice? Was he muscular? Did his eyes shine bright like a diamond? 

I had all these questions and more rolling through my head that I barely noticed Uzor standing right in front of me.

"Hmnn, day dreamer, what's it about this time?" He teased

"About you na, what else?" I said.

He smiled "You can't stand me dear"

"What do you mean?" I quipped.

"Never mind, where are you off to, that's before your mind took you away"

"I don't blame you, why do you want to know, besides its none of your business"

"Hmnn, someone's taking it P"

"Whatever, I'm out" I started to leave..

"Hold on a sec Jane"

"What?" I asked

"Its nothing really, I just wanted to know, I have a date coming up soon and I need your advice.."

"Hahaaa!" I laughed. "My advice? Since when do you go out on dates and who is the sister that took you serious to ever agree on a date with you."

"It will amaze you that lots of sisters find me irresistible," he smirked, "you only need to taste and see dear"

"Shior, I feel sorry for all dem sisters then, cos it may be too late before they find out the taste is sour."

"Is that what you really think of me?"

"Since when do you care what I think of you?"

"I just want to know... If that's how you feel or.."

"Or what?"

"You know what, never mind. Don't let me hold you any longer, I'm sure where you are off to is more important."

"Oh well, for once you are right. It sure is a lot more important than standing here answering all your silly questions. And if I may add, save yourself and the sister the stress..." 

I arrived at the venue for the date, found a sit close to the window as I watched on waiting for my date.

20 mins, 30 mins passed still no date. I decided to order a drink as I passed the time looking outside the window at passersby thinking which of them might be him.

40mins, 1hour.. I decided to call Stacy and ask her why the date wasn't forthcoming, since she was the one who had set me up on the blind date. 

So I dialled her number on and on but she wasn't picking. 

10 more minutes I thought and I'm outta here, 10mins turned to 20 and then 30 and I ended up spending 2 hours at the restaurant before I decided it was time to get going.

As I stood up to leave, I met face to face with Uzor, he looked rather stunning, dressed in a suit and dinner tie accompanied by a dashing lady hanging on to him like her life depended on it. 

I was too ashamed to even say hi so I made to leave but he stepped forward to meet me leaving behind his date.

"Hi Jane."

"Hi," I said feeling flushed "what are you doing here?"

"I could ask you the same thing, since we are both here...."

"I have a date and you know it.."

"Well I have one too as you are well aware.."

"Good for you, bye.." I started to leave but he stopped me.

"Wait Jane, why are you leaving so early, aren't you suppose to be with your date?"

At this point I was feeling suffocated..

"Yes, and he's left" I lied.

"Left without you?"

"He had an emergency so he had to go." Wow two lies in a row, I have a lot of confessing to do

"Oh, well the night is young why don't we grab a drink.."

"Yeah right and leave Cinderella hanging without her man.."

"You mean her?" He pointed at the direction of the lady he walked in with

"Yeaaa, who else?"

"Oh no, don't get it all twisted, she isn't my date."

"Oh really, so she just happened to fall on your hand and walk in through the door with you?"

"Are you jealous?"

"Jealous of who? Oh please.. Don't flatter yourself.."

"So, we could stand and argue all day or just get a sit and enjoy the evening, what do you say?"

I looked around trying to see where the lady he walked in with was, but I couldn't see any trace of her so without thinking much I took a sit.

"What would you like to order" he asked before I had the chance to say another word.
