Tana and Felix

Tana and Felix were so much in love that one could not see anything wrong with the other. Theirs was a movie-like relationship that was full of fun, laughter and peace. Though at times they quarrelled, but they obeyed the ‘golden rule of peace’ which was for the sun not to set on ones anger.
Tana was from a well-to-do home and was the only daughter of her parents. She, along with her other two siblings were homeschooled, by their mother who was a full housewife, till they were ready enough for secondary school.
Felix on the other hand was born and bred in Canada as his parents were very wealthy. He was however sent to Nigeria (his parents’ fatherland) to pursue his higher education. Since Felix was the only child, his father did not want the only offspring he bore to forget his roots. Moreover, Felix was a spoiled child and almost always got into trouble. His mother’s brother, who also had two sons, was his guardian in Nigeria.
So it was that Tana and Felix met in the University and it was a tale of love at first sight for them. Being level mates, they became the envy of friends, families and even foes throughout their stay in the institution. Even till later, in their different working places, nothing could come between them.
There was one thing though about them both that no one else knew except the lovebirds and which each didn’t fancy about the other. Felix knew Tana was home-schooled and therefore was quite rigid in some of the things she believed in, especially, most especially morals and etiquette. Tana thought Felix was a bit ‘too much’, in lifestyle, for her. He wore neck chains that she believed a responsible man shouldn’t (but he had been wearing them since he was a kid). He didn’t know how to cook, wash dishes, clean, in fact, not one chore did he know how to do, which Tana believed was not good enough (why should he do chores? Chores belong with the woman). And some other things they could not share with anyone, since they were role models after all, expected to be perfect.
It went on like that for the two of them. Each one tried severally to change those things they were not too pleased with in the other.
Then Felix was beginning to talk about marriage and settling down. Tana, being close to her mother, had to confide in her, telling her those things she felt were unpleasant about Felix. Her mother only told her that if she couldn’t cope with it, she should not venture into it- because it was not likely going to ever change.
And one day, Felix proposed.

…to be continued.
