The beginning of a dramatic day deserves a dramatic intro. So here it goes…

It was a fine Thursday morning. Not so fine actually because our transformer blew the night before. But that’s not what makes this day dramatic.

I was scrolling through my Instagram feed on August 12, 2021 when I came across a follow suggestion.

Instagram wanted me to follow an account called “Jenandmayo” because it is followed by two people I follow.

The profile picture caught my attention because one of the two people in the photo was familiar.

I clicked on the profile and found out that “Jenandmayo” is a wedding page for “Jennifer and Mayowa”. Mayowa as in Mr Sweetface.

Lol, and also tears Inna mi eyes. Apparently, Jennifer and Mayowa met in August 2020 and got engaged in July 2021. Can you imagine?

I sent the profile to Mayowa’s DM with “I knew it!”. I knew that his excuse for breaking up didn’t entirely make sense. Imagine my shock when I found out that Jennifer was the girl he claimed was just his friend.

I knew when he met her. According to him, his friend Josh introduced him to her and she was supposed to help him get a job. I think.

They got close really quickly, he even visited her house, and met her family. We had a fight about it. For some reason, I suspected something was up but he assured me that it was just platonic. And I believed him.

Why wouldn’t I? I was supposed to be the love of his life and the only one he could imagine doing this life with.

But it was obviously a lie. I’m beginning to realise that the “children” excuse was also just an excuse because he knew that it is a deal-breaker for me.

I’m hurt. I feel betrayed. I feel stupid.
