The Boss vs Employee: It Was Love At First Sight For Me: Olamide and Olanshile's Love Story

So i had saved this and had wanted to share it but somehow, i forgot to click on the 'publish' button. As i was going through my achive, i saw it sitting pretty and decided to share my love story on how i met my Mr Right. Enjoy!

Our Story

I have always been a sucker for chubby dudes. (In fact everything chubby; I will probably not kill a roach because it’s chubby). While I was doing my youth service in Ibadan, I got a call for an interview at a media company in Lagos. I was overjoyed because I didn't want to stay at home after NYSC was over.

I got to Lagos and started having cold feet. I started thinking of everything that could go wrong and why I shouldn't go for the interview. Thank God for my older friends; in fact they made sure they left work to come take me to the venue.

While we were in the waiting room, a young chubby man came to tell us that we were soon to be attended to and all I could see was that he didn't have a ring on that dreaded finger! Till date, I still don't know why that thought crossed my mind. For Christ sakes, I was there for an interview!

When it was my turn for the interview, I was stunned to discover that the cute chubby man was my interviewer! Jeez! I still don't know how I passed the interview because I kept thinking of his cute chubby presence and his cute voice *still drool every time I hear it*

I was hired... I was Single... He was in a relationship... Spoiler!

The one thing I noticed was that he wasn't a woman wrapper; he had strict policies and abided by them. On his birthday, he was so sad, I mean the guy had sadness written all over him. I was almost forced to ask what the matter was but as “I be employee now and he my boss,” I didn't want to cross my boundaries. But I was happy I could use his picture on my BBM for some days without my colleagues asking ’sup.*big grin*

I got to know that his girlfriend broke his heart prior to his birthday. I should have been sad but mehn, I wasn't oh! I started putting extra efforts in my work activities, always going the extra mile, and then one day, he asked me if I would like to see a movie with him! Bingo!!!!!! Mission achieved! Little did I know that all the while, he was “eyeing” me as well!

And the rest they say, is history. I met the man of my dreams where I never thought I would and it's been a beautiful experience so far and I cannot wait to walk down the aisle with him in November and February 2016.

The Mighty Proposal

This my baby and stunts sha! He likes playing the James Bond 007 stunts on me all the time but this one was the one that was going to change my life forever!

It was my birthday and I had always talked about how I hated birthday proposals because it’s all too predictable. It was a great morning of kisses, roses, breakfast in bed, gifts, two cakes and that clich├ęd romantic stuff... I was having a great day and it was just about to get better.

Around 4pm, people started calling my boo. I was beginning to feel like he was planning something big (like a birthday bash). I wasn't thinking proposal at all because I have talked and over talked sef about hating birthday proposals.

Then at about 5pm, he asked me to get dressed in a dress he had bought for me. All through the drive, the calls kept coming in, asking for directions and I was like," Okay, what's going on?" But I didn't ask, I just went with the flow *my heart still skips a beat writing this* We picked up his sister at some place, and headed for a buffet on the island.

And behold, everybody was there! My brother from Ife, my closest friends, his siblings. I remember screaming. I just kept screaming. I still thought it was a birthday party until Dotun of Cool FM announced that THE BOO had an announcement.
