I guess this story would not be rid off criticism anytime soon. But its all good, i love it, keep it coming.smiley


as for ur question chuks, can I argue that Daisy was already spent and tired of the whole fights, she wanted her marriage to grow and be rid off the misunderstanding that has so enveloped it from the start?

She's also just coming from her cousin's where she supposedly got useful advice and where she'd run to for the past three days.

And there was offcourse the three keys of marriage she learnt, of which, forgiveness was part of..

And then, she finally did face Grace for who she was, and sent her out of their home and hopefully, lives. So I guess this is enough reasons why she should not let that incident affect their lives. Instead they should just move on, before she destroys the whole marriage.



And then offcourse, me I was tired of writing oh, and I wanted to dance into the sunset atlast! So No need to prolong their matter Jo grin

@ princesa
your signature sentence " some of us have success written in our stars deal with it " sound arrogant and prideful. I guess it is a product of your inertness.
I girl lost the position of a VP in my faculty election during my school days as a result of that kind of statement in your signature.
think about it dear, one love.

princesa: The rest of the ceremony dragged on slowly, Jide's anger increased with each activities they observed that was stipulated on the program menu. When it was time to feed eachother the cake, Jide almost stuffed Daisy
with the cake, that act had given
him pleasure.

'serves her right' he thought to himself.

Daisy had however tenderly given him his part of the cake, but inside
she was burning with anger, Jide was really acting s.tu.pid and
childish, she thought, he didn't have to be so wicked trying to choke her with the cake, so she would cough out her pitiable self infront of all these people. Well, she wouldn't retaliate because there was no telling what lay in the sleeves of this husband of hers, and so she carried on the facade of the happiest bride on her happiest day. How
hard it was!

Also, during the couple dance, No matter how ostentatious Daisy had tried to be, it was obvious that the rift between them was far from friendly much less conjugal, those who had an inkling that somethings
were wrong with this couple could really rest their case.

Because Jide had been miles apart from Daisy and seemed to be dancing with one of the female guests who had come to dance with them, even the M.C observed that and chipped in:

'It seems our groom here can't tell the difference between a lady on
white and one on red'

But jide was far from caring, if they wanted a dance, he reasoned, then
dance he must give them, no matter who was on the receiving end. He so
hated his wedding and loved every opportunity he could get to create a
scene, that would atleast teach his manipulative family spearheaded by
his grandmother to stop meddling with the affairs of a grown man, he had
had his misgivings about working in the family company, which meant he
had to see the face of his over bearing father and annoying brother
almost on a daily basis, an interaction which had finally led him to
this sham of a union.


And although it was too late to turn back the hands of time, it wasn't
too late to create a media scandal that would get through the thick skin
of his family. This dance was therefore, short of the expectations of
what lay ahead for them and their docile pet, Daisy.

The wedding finally ended at about 6pm, Jide, to the chagrin of everyone
wasn't available to give a 'vote of thanks', it was said by his father,
he had left halfway during the presentation of gifts and his space was
filled by Ade, that act had almost brought Daisy to tears, it took words
of encouragement from Ade to calm her, he had said:

'Daisy don't work yourself up unnecessarily, Jide can be impulsive
atimes, but he's a wonderful guy most times'

'yeah right' Daisy had snorted in reply.

The other reason why she was smiling was because she was receiving gifts
from the guests, gifts that seem to go on forever. The Olukoyas had
friends who were very generous, she hoped she would soon get mixed in
their world.

'Well, this is enough to compensate all my loss right now' she thought,
calming herself.

But at about 7pm, Jide still had not shown up, his number wasn't
connecting and nobody could say for sure where he went.

'this is an exclusive case oh', it has always been the bride who gets
missing before or after the wedding not the groom, this definitely is a
shockker' Ade had replied dryly to Jide's father when he had asked him
of Jide's whereabouts.

'That's how stupid and childish Jide is, let me just set my eyes on him,
he will surely have a piece of me' his father had replied angrily and
stormed off to go quiz more of his friends.

Ade had just shook his head, and walked towards the exit door, he was
already tired of Jide's attitude and the drama of the whole evening,
'whatever happened to pretending' he said to himself.

Daisy on her part had calmly gone to one of the rooms they rented in
Queens hotel to moan her situation, she just wanted to be far from
everybody. Although she did not expect the wedding to be so rosy, she
hadn't imagined it would be this bad, she was starting to regret
everything now.

She wondered when her tears would break forth, she was showing so much strength and calmness than she ever knew she had.

'You never know how strong you are until you have to be strong' she said quietly to herself as she slowly lay on the bed she had been sitting on.

Just then she heard a knock, she didn't feel like seeing anybody.

'Why wont they leave me alone for once' she cried silently without making a move to see who had knocked.

The door opened and in came Jide's grandmother

'Daisy Omo mi' she said going to seat by her on the bed

'Am really sorry for all that happened today, Jide was so...'

'Mama its ok, there's no need to feel sorry' cut in Daisy then she squeezed herself more, her wedding gown protested the act.

'Only God knows all the pain you're going through now, noone envisioned that it would turn out this way, on behalf of the family, i must take the...'
