No doubt at all, love can be found in most bizarre places, sometimes in “hopeless places”, like Aunty Riri, will tell us – this couple found theirs at the place almost everybody visits when it’s the end of the month, to hear that joyful noise of “krrrr, krrrrr, krrrrrrr”, when the ATM is about dispense your cash.
Ukeme Obot and Zenas Onyemaobi, found each other at an ATM queue and the pain of not being able to dispense cash after waiting for so long on the queue was what actually helped kick things off between the both of them!
Enjoy their amazing love story below:
Ukeme Obot is journalist, while Zenas Onyemaobi is a computer engineer.
How they met
The excited bride tells EnouwemJim’s Blog–
“Our paths crossed on a Wednesday afternoon, 5th of August 2015 to be precise. I wanted to travel, so I needed to put some things in place before leaving the next day. I set out to use the ATM but when i got there, the queue was long but i decided to wait. Then, his friend said ‘hello’ and i replied ‘hi’, he further went on by telling me that I’m beautiful and that he (his friend) loved my hairdo, i replied ‘thanks’ with a stern face. After waiting for a long time, the ATM suddenly stopped dispensing cash, and suddenly the rain started, but it was only a drizzle. Since they came in a car, they opted to help take me to another ATM since they were also checking else where. Initially, i refused but they insisted and i obliged. They withdrew first and were suppose to leave but Zenas asked if he could wait since it had started to rain heavily already so he could drop me off, and seeing how heavy the rain was, i immediately accepted. After withdrawal, i hurried to meet them in the car, on getting there i slipped and was about to fall, as smart as he (Zenas) could be, he immediately held me up and took off his shirt to wipe my legs…
That is where that gesture has landed us lol.”
The bride who was now blushing said
“He proposed when we went for a picnic at the beach. We were having fun and then he knelt down, looked inside my eyes and asked ‘Will you marry me?’ I blushed and was like awnnn…so sweet. I said ‘Yes, I will’ with my heart full of excitement.
There were so many people at the beach that day, and they were all clapping, cheering and congratulating”.
