Falling in Love with a Doctor


Fall in love, Fall in love, finally Yewande don fall in love…

Two days after I left the hospital, I went back for checkup. When I got to the hospital, I met the same nurse that gave me Dr. *Wale’s note. She was very glad to see me; she gave me a befitting welcome package. Just when I was about leaving, she asked me if I had called the doctor to show appreciation. That was when I remembered the note the nurse gave me before I left the hospital. I remembered how I tore the note when my mum was commenting cynically about the doctor on our way home. I remembered the doctor’s handsome face, his smooth skin, chocolate complexion and his sonorous voice that’s just like a lady’s. I was standing in front of the nurse perplexed, worried and gambling right inside my heart.
After some minutes of deep reflection, I asked the nurse the most important question.
“Is Wale single?”
“Yes, he is. He is a very responsible person and very intelligent too,” she replied.
“I’ll think about it,” I told her and left the hospital.

When I got home, I couldn’t sleep. I was just thinking about this guy. I was scared not to fall for a guy like Gbenga who turned a bad-boy overnight, but I really wanted somebody in my life. I wanted a shoulder to learn on. I was really thinking deep until I dozed off. When I woke up the next morning, I resolved to send him a text, at least to appreciate his concern over my health and thank him about the bill he picked.

The message was as simple as possible to avoid showing any interest. As promised, he called back. We spent 30mins on phone! He told me how he went gaga when he first saw me, how he’d been daydreaming about me and how he can’t wait to be my ‘love’. It was the sweetest moment for me, as I fell in love after hearing this guy’s sweet voice and plans.

I discovered that we had almost everything in common. My dad died when I was 10years old; his parents died when he was very young. He lived with his grandmother who trained him up to university level. The grandmother died last year. We were born the same month; we are products of same school (he did his first and second degree at UNILAG where I am currently rounding off my studies). He loves eating beans and plantain which is also my favourite food. Interestingly also, we are both bloggers.

At 30, Wale has an intimidating record. He left secondary school with the highest result in Oyo State in 1993 and the 10th best UME result in Nigeria in 1994. Of course, that was the best result in Oyo State. He gained admission into University of Lagos on scholarship and graduated with a first-class honours in a science related course. Then he went for Medicine and Surgery for his second degree. He served at a private hospital in Surulere, before securing a permanent employment in this top Ikeja hospital where I met him.

I got carried away by these achievements. I did not know when I told him YES after the third date.

*Wale here is not the doctor’s real name.

oooh, love wantintin!!!!

lol!

You sound genuinely happy! Too cute. Give us more gist nah? So he's a blogger based in Naija as well...oh...is that ...

Okay, just in case i am right (and I most likely am not) I will not even try to write who I think it is. All I will say is, it is so refreshing to read a tale of two people getting to know each other.

Best of luck and keep us informed!

SOLOMONSYDELLE said...

Ayanda Abeke said...

Yetunde, I don't know if this is the continuatio a story , well, I enjoyed reading it. This piece is nice as those piece published by Toni Kan and Helon Habila in the Hint Magazine in those days. Indeed this story could earn you some thousands if you have right to connection to those Love Mag.

Now, you have to be very careful, even though the guy seems original and real. Don't just fall in love like that, those credentials are nothing but papers, he may be one of them. I'm sure you know the adage: once bitten twice shy. Falling in love with this doctor of yours could be change it to "twice bitten thrice shy." Beware....

QMoney said...

I know who it is .his real names are.....***me too am dreaming.lol
Congrats dear,wish u d best

Buttercup said...
