Chidi:i love you so much amara but I don’t think am ready for this now,i just can’t
Amara :it okey,i guess I just made a fool out of myself then
Amara was about leaving but chidi held her back, he knew she wasn’t happy and that is what he won’t want,to make her unhappy.
Chidi :wait,is this what you really want
Amara :if you think you are not worthy of my love then forget it but if you know you will spend the rest of your life with me then make me yours.
Chidi knew he needs to decide first, he want to have her but wasn’t expecting it so soon but never the less even if he does it now or later that won’t change anything because he knows in his heart that amara will be his wife, he then made up his mind to make today a memorable day,he held amara very close,lift up her face with his hand and slowly kissed her,he paused looked at amara to see her reaction, he was actually waiting for a go ahead.
