.

Me: No problem dear, we are going together

**i can see big grin on CNN face, he stylishly

mocked me*

.

Tola: Let start going then, time has gone

already

—————————————–

We left my room, i locked my door, put the

key where i used to keep it.

Four of us headed to Dstv viewing center

like a happy couples.

We entered the viewing center to met full

house, omo 9ja guys love football oo see

how this place is full, we found one empty

bench we sat on it, Tola sat, CNN sitted

next to her, i sat next to CNN , while dupe

sit next to me.

My mind wasn’t on the ball we are watching

at all, all i was thinking was how

to become the official boyfriend of Dupe, I

just

sit continued watching the ball with fake

smile on my face, without knowing the

jersey colour of England nor Iceland.

37min of the match i heard heavy shouting

of Goal! Goal!! Goal!!! Up England.

I quickly stand on my feet jumped up

shouting with them, Goal! Goal!! Goal!!!

Dupe also stood up, i hugged her so tight,

before CNN whispers to my ear.

“Guy what makes you happy? Don’t forget

we played this match with 5k, England

scored you were jubilation, don’t you know

if England won this match your 5k is gone,

but if Iceland won you will be 40k richer”

I gently sat down like someone who lost his

flight fare to USA

.

Dupe: Don’t be panic pesman, Iceland will

win

.

Me: I pray so

.

Dupe: *smile* you don’t have to pray,

Iceland has won already

.

Me: Hmmm ** surprised, seems Dupe had

seen

result**
