The bridal march was playing. My chief bridesmaid adjusted my veil and i began my walk down the aisle.
Five years ago, I wasn’t sure I had made the right decision. Tunde and I had reluctantly agreed to put our relationship on hold while he went abroad to study.
I missed him terribly.
At first, there were frequent calls, emails and texts. Then they gradually reduced, until we were arguing over why either of us didn’t keep in touch anymore. He got busier with his studies; I threw myself into my new fashion business.
Six months ago, he came back full of apologies. But I had my own stories to tell.
Now he smiled at me, as I walked into the church, on my way to marry his twin brother.
