"It's okay, I was just on my way out. Night was good and yours? How's the bump progressing?" Kola replied.
"We dey o, can't wait for it to drop abeg , I don tire" Said Sope, with a note of exasperation.
"Pele, unfortunately, I can't say I know how you feel. So whatsup?" Kola said sympathetically.
"Yea, it's about Timehin's birthday. I was thinking of doing something special for her. Dinner at her favorite restaurant with a few friends, not like she has any. Colleagues, family and of course you" Sope said.
"Mmmmn, sounds like a plan. But you know your friend, don't be disappointed if she goes off on the idea." Kola said, trying to open the door of his car.
"Well, I'd have accomplished my mission because I want it to be a surprise" Sope replied.
Kola laughed, "So what's the plan?, can we talk about it over lunch?"
"Yea sure, I'd be ditching my meal plan for today, yayyyy!!!" Sope answered in excitement.
"Riggghhhhhttttt, no one should blame me for the extra kilos o. So 2.00 pm? I'd pick you up."
"Ok, 2pm is fine, I'd be at work through the day. Thanks Kola" Sope said.
"See you later, bye" Kola said and hung up.Timehin was going to be 34 in less than a month and even though she was out of the country for work, I had been thinking of what to do to make it special for her. It was going to be her first birthday we'd be celebrating as a couple officially and that made it feel even more special for me. When Sope called with the idea of a surprise dinner, it fit into what I already had in my mind.
