How we met
Henry saw me at a friend’s traditional wedding and he said he loved me instantly. I didn’t know anything about this until 3 years after when his sister whom I knew asked me for my no for him. I gave her thinking he was gonna call me but instead my mum told me about him and how he loved me so much he wanted to marry me, I was in shock and quickly declined as I hadn’t spoken to him yet. I was upset and uneasy about the process of going through my mum before talking to me, so that threw me off completely. He called severally, sometimes I picked up other times I ignored, he sent me flowers, gifts etc I didn’t care because I was in a relationship at the time. He took a lot from my stubborn head, half of which I can’t possibly take and at a time I knew there was something about this guy. I asked him why he came for me after 3years had passed and he said I was too young then and he wanted to marry me straight and not date me. After the relationship ended I literally saw clearly how amazing this guy was and how he only wanted my happiness. I had a fatal ghastly accident and he literally flew down with the next flight to see me. I was like “Damn Princess you can’t possibly let this guy go ” I have loved him since that day ( although he doesn’t know this so shhhhh! LoL) I really admired the fact that he knew what he wanted and consistently worked for it. Since then, We have built a deep and amazing connection that is unbreakable.
Henry and I were in for my birthday weekend and his mum and my mum decided to come aswell. We were so excited as it was gonna be a family thing. On my birthday he threw me a party on a yacht with our friends and family present and it was really ‘Turnt up ” lol. A lot of whispering went on throughout the day between both our mums and him so I suspected he was gonna pop the question.
After we all had a swell time, my cake came in as he gave me flowers with an amazing speech on how he had loved me from the first day he met me and all and how he wants to take it to another level etc he tried getting ring out of his blazer but was stuck so everyone laughed hard he went on one knee while the yacht was moving side to side and asked me to marry him with this most gorgeous diamond ring I had ever seen and I relied “YESS babyyy”. Both our mums were screaming with excitement.
Henry knew I wasn’t so surprised about the proposal so he had a few tricks off his sleeves. The next day we rushed out of the Hotel to the airport as we were running so late, after we had checked in, I wanted to wear my ring so opened my ring box only to find it empty and I recalled taking it off to shower on the toilet sink so it had to be at the hotel.
I was so upset , worried and uneasy as I didn’t care missing my flight to get back to the hotel for it, but Henry calmed me down and said he would call the hotel to look for it, keep it and we would send someone to get it for me. He encourages me to board the flight so that we won’t be stuck in Dubai for another day as it’s just a material thing. I was so upset I forced my self to board and I was gloomy throughout. About 2 hours into the flight, he told me he needed to use the restroom and He already place an order for chocolate cake for desert for me.
The next thing I saw were cameras from my mum, his mum and the cabin crew, i was so lost n confused. The air hostess served me with fruits and a pice of chocolate cake which read ” will you marry me” I was laughing my butt off and wondering why he is re proposing until he have me a glass of champagne with my ring it. I was on cloud 9 as I hit him severally and making me believe I forgot my ring at the Hotel LOL. The whole cabin kept screaming with joy as they came over to check out my ring. I was so surprised I didn’t see that coming atall. He knows I love surprises and tried to give me just that. My phenomenal king.
