So how has life been generally? He asked again sensing she didn’t hear the first time, and also wondered what could be on her mind that she was so carried away; life’s been good but you know like they say, life in itself is not always fair.

That’s correct but i must say, life has also dealt me with my fair share before getting to this stage and life goes on you know, who knows what tomorrow will bring, we can only hope for the best. So i’m sure your boyfriend or fiance must be a very jealous one, you don’t let your guards down easily and that got me thinking that it must be because of him but on second thought, you’ve also got standards and maybe i dont fit into such.

Daniella smiled genuinely for the first time since her encounter with the devil sitted across to her from the table, maybe it’s the standard, she replied. That’s really cool then i suppose but you should learn to have fun once in a while. Thank you so much, if you don’t mind i have to get back to work.

Yes he exclaimed, thanks for honouring the date, uuhhnn, she said, i meant coming out with me for lunch, i appreciate it. Arthur, can i ask you for something, since he had requested that they relate on first name basis, yes go ahead; could you get someone else to stand in for me at your dinner, i have a 5 year old son to take care of after work.

He sighed, he wasn’t going to let go easily, he also had a son too, what a coincidence, all i need is your address, i will personally pick you up at 7pm with your son and he could hang out with mine , i’ve a baby sitter who will take care of them; it was her turn to sigh, at least he had a son and probably a wife somewhere but why result to giving your child care thorugh a baby sitter and not his mother, she thought; as if reading her thoughts, he said, his mum is late, im very sorry about that, she replied sharply. Shall we? the address; i’ll send it by sms before the end of the day.

She then decided to pick a dress she had been eyeing in a boutique close to her house the following day, she loved it, the sharp color, the cut and every thing about i
It, she was sure it will be her perfect size. And yes, she was going to make a statement with her looks for once; she smiled remembering the rumours been carried on around the office as to how she was an unhappy old baggage and how she wouldn’t look any different even if she was clothed by Prada.

They were in for a shock!
