First time encounters— Unexpected Love

This week, I’ll be sharing the first encounter between Vincent Mba and Yemi Okeke from Unexpected Love, one of the stories from the anthology, Be My Valentine published by @LoveAfricaPress.

A sound at the door jarred her from her musings. She turned towards the entrance, and her heart lurched. 

A good-looking, athletic man dressed in an impeccable black blazer walked in. His skin was smooth toffee brown, his head shaved bald, and a well-groomed beard and moustache surrounded perfectly shaped full lips.

Embarrassed to be focusing on his mouth, she jerked her attention up to his eyes, and her breath trapped in her chest. Stunning intense dark eyes. No man had the right to have such thick and curly eye lashes without using a mascara, or wonderfully carved eyebrows that should be on a woman.

“Yemi Okeke? You are the orthopaedic surgeon, Yemi Okeke?”

The man’s deep baritone voice flooded the room. Such a sexy sound. Her throat went dry, screaming hoarsely from a sudden need for water. 

“Yes, I am.” She nodded, surprised to see the spark of recognition reflected in the man’s eyes. She hadn’t met him before. Had she? Although there was something vaguely familiar about him, she couldn’t quite place it.  “I have a meeting with the board of directors … or Mr. Mba.”

“I am Mr. Mba,” he said with a smile. “Vincent Mba.”

“Oh, hello, sir.”

Butterflies skittered all over her tummy, making her even more nervous now that she realised he was indeed the man she was here to meet. What a stunning male specimen. And young, too. Probably less than thirty. He was certainly nothing like what she’d expected a hospital manager to look like.

“Vincent. I hate people calling me ‘sir’.”

He lowered his eyes to her left hand briefly and then held her gaze.

“Hmm … Seems like the fool still didn’t man up and wife you?” he said, broadening his grin.

“What?” Her forehead furrowed in confusion, unsure she had heard properly.

“Oh … I was there in the restaurant … you know, when you proposed to your boyfriend of six years.”

Blood drained from her brain, making her feel lightheaded. She quickly pulled out a seat and slumped on it.

So much for having a fresh start in Lagos.
