Linda’s surprise proposal: a humorous story on stroke

Dr. O.



“4 years don waka, we still dey carry go, nobody waka nobody go solo…..” Linda woke up this morning feeling super excited, singing the lyrics to her favourite song of the moment while she danced around the room excitedly. The day she had been looking forward to for the past 4 years had finally come, Kole was going to propose today.

“You better make sure you act surprised when he pops the question o, or else you won’t get any more gist from me” Simi, her boyfriend’s younger sister had earlier warned her after she let the cat out of the bag. Over the years, Simi and Linda had grown to become best of friends, Simi was Kole’s only sister and he was very fond of her; he shared basically everything with her and was very protective of her. Simi had always secretly hoped that he would one day get married to Linda, so when he finally told her of his plans to propose, she couldn’t keep it to herself. “Don’t worry about it dear, don’t you trust me? Angelina Jolie has nothing on me!” Linda assured her with a huge grin on her face. “ Ok o, if you say so, you’ve sha been warned”, Simi replied.

Linda danced excitedly to the kitchen and made herself a cup of coffee, she got lost in thought while going through pictures with Kole on her phone. “How is he even going to propose?” she thought to herself, “would it be at the beach?…..Nah, Kole is not a big fan of water, besides the weather isn’t looking too good today. Or maybe we’ll go to that roof top restaurant he’s been making noise about”, she thought with a smile on her face.

Her thoughts were suddenly interrupted by her phone ringing, it was Kole calling. “Yes!! Finally” she screamed, she had been waiting for this call all morning, Kole was such a deep sleeper, he liked to spend his Saturday mornings having a good snooze so she didn’t want to wake him up, besides the last thing she wanted to do was spoil his mood today of all days by interrupting his beauty sleep.

“Hey Babe” his voice sounded from the phone, “Hey” she replied, trying to hide the excitement in her voice “how was your night? Did you sleep well?” “Yes I did, I’ve been up for a while trying to plan my day”. “Good boy” she thought, “Plan it very well”. “So what did you finally plan?” she asked. Well I was thinking we could hang out later today”, he said. “Really ,where are we going?” she asked. “ Haven’t decided yet, I’ll call you to let you know later, just make sure you look lovely as always… Gotta go now, mum is on call waiting”, he said before he hung up.

Later that afternoon, Kole finally called back. “hey babe, please lets meet up at Orangetree hospital now”.

“ Huh? What are we going there to do? She replied with a puzzled look on her face, this was not quite the proposal she had imagined.
“ Just come over, I’ll explain when you get here”, he hung up without giving her a chance to object. “Okaay, what’s he up to now?” She thought to herself, I can’t wait to see how he’s going to pull this one off” ……click here for episode 2
