Pearl rummaged her wardrobe for the 'perfect' dress. She had just ended the call with her best friend Diane, who asked her to quickly dress up that she sent someone to pick her from her apartment.

Diane didn't mention what the occasion was but she told her to dress sexily that it was something special. She didn't argue, she knew Diane to be exactly that way; springing surprises up on people every time without minding their schedule or mood.

Five minutes into the search, she found the dress. A knee length black gown that hugged her curves just perfectly.

"This is it, baby!" she said, triumphantly.

She wore the dress and walked to the mirror. "Well," she turned around so she could see her back. "this is sexy." she concluded.

Pearl couldn't help but admire herself in the black dress, it was tight with a little opening that showed a little of her cleavage and did justice to the sexy look and all of her curves.

Soon, she heard the loud honk outside the apartment. "That is for me, I guess."

She hurriedly picked her purse, phone and walked out.

"Range?" This must be really special then, she thought as she admired the white and sparkling new looking Range Rover parked outside the apartment.

If it's not new then the owner must be a freak for neatness, she thought quietly.

Diane rolled with 'em rich guys but for her to send a Range Rover which looked like a 2019 model, to pick Pearl showed it must be really special.

Diane had the habit of sending people to pick her up whenever there was an event or a hangout. When they first became friends, Diane offered to buy her a car but she declined, she preferred to 'hustle' and get her things herself, so she wouldn't look like a welfare kid or feel like she was in a parasitic relationship with Diane. She was the type that liked to bring different things to the table and not take any, simply put, she preferred being a giver to a receiver.

Pearl wondered what it might be to warrant a Range, it had always been Camry.

She momentarily racked her brain. Her birthday? No way. Diane's birthday was still like eight months away.

What could it be? She wondered as she walked to the car.

It had tinted glasses. She couldn't see who was in it. She tapped gently on the window of the driver's side.

Who ever was inside, gently wound down the glass and poked out his head.

The sight that met her was dazzling.

A drop dead gorgeous, sweet prince staring at her with his big beautiful eyes, eyes that stared directly into her soul, eyes that she wouldn't mind looking at for the rest of her life.

"Pearl?" he asked.

She instantly fell in love with her name again. The way it sounded and the way his lips was shaped when he called it, was out of this world, it looked like he was blowing kisses her way and the voice? It sounded like something just out of Broadway. She couldn't even answer, she found herself drooling with eyes wide open.

"I'm sorry, are you Pearl?"

"Uhm, ye...yeah." She finally found her voice and bowed her head in embarrassment.

"I'm sorry, why were you staring like that? Were you expecting someone else?" he asked, creasing his brows.

She bit her lower lip nervously. She was already dying from embarrassment and the guy just added salt to injury by talking about the issue.

Now, she just wished the ground would just open up and swallow her.

"If you're Pearl then hop in let's go or we'd be late."

She nodded obediently and opened the car and slide in at the back right behind him.

He turned and gave her a puzzled look and then shrugged. Moment later, he drove off at top speed.

Even as he drove and hummed to Flavour's song, Wiser, Pearl still couldn't speak. She was too embarrassed to even think of starting a conversation with him.

"...Eh, eh eh, agam adikwa zi nu wiser ye.
Girl I will be wiser.
I gotta be a little clever yeh
Girl I will be clever ye.
Agam adikwa si nu wiser ye.
I gotta be a little sharper le..."

She quickly made a mental note to stop spending her whole weekends indoors with her laptop and start going out more. If she was the outgoing type, she certainly wouldn't have embarrassed herself in that manner. At least she would have boasted of meeting cuter guys than he.

"Who are you to Diane? I know she wouldn't make me drive all the way from Olive park to here if you're not really close to her." He started.

Mr. Drop dead gorgeous was talking to her.

Waow! She struggled to find her voice. "Uhm..."

Just say it and stop embarrassing yourself, her inner voice chided

"I'm her best friend."

"Wow." he breathed out, obviously that wasn't the answer he was expecting. "How come I don't see you around?"

She fidgeted. How could she start explaining to a total stranger that she preferred her laptop and movies to any outdoor activity. Or how she preferred to work extra time than hang out with Diane and her other 'plenty' friends.

Seeing that she wasn't about to respond to his last question, he continued. "I'm sorry. Forgive my manners. I'm Soma, as in short for Somadina."

Her eyes literally popped out from their sockets. Somadina as in an Igbo name, like igbo, east of Nigeria? She definitely wasn't expecting that. She would never have guessed he was even a Nigerian.

"You don't look like an Igbo guy." She said, instead of continuing the conversation with herself.

His eyes left the road and focused on her...for a second though. He smiled and her heart melted. He had the most beautiful smile she had ever seen since her 23 years on planet earth.

"Well, mum is from Canada and dad is from Enugu state. They met when he went to Canada for his masters. They always tell me it was love at first sight."

"Wow. That's nice to hear."

She found herself wishing she was him. Call it envy or jealousy but she wished she had Soma's kind of parents. He was so lucky to have such parents even though he would never know.

It was truly nice to hear that parents talk about such things with their kids. In her house it wasn't like that. Instead of love and laughter what they got was nagging from mum and hissing from dad. Pearl had been all too glad when she was sent to a boarding school in her JS1. Since then she had stayed away from home as much as possible, her mum's nagging wasn't a pleasant thing to watch or hear.

"Diane never told me she had a beautiful and modest friend like you."

She blushed.

He suddenly pulled to a stop. "Pearl, just come over to the front. I really don't like how you're sitting at my back like some sort of stranger."
Oh! She thought inwardly. That was definitely why he gave her that long stare the moment she entered the car.

"Technically, we are strangers." She countered. This time she did it boldy, she was no longer intimidated by his cute face...maybe just a little.

Yes! She inwardly hailed herself "I should go out more often and meet cute guys" she thought.

"No, we are not." Soma's voice brought her out of her reverie.

"We are!"

"I don't think so. I know your name, you know mine and for heaven's sake, I like you and you like me too."

Lord, the guy is really bold, she thought to herself.

To be continued

I like this, can you continue please?
