Okay, so what makes you think that you are good for me? Laraba asked Chuks. We have nothing in common, and I can never like an Ibo boy, not to talk of marrying one. What will I tell my father? Look Chuks, please take your love somewhere else.
Chuks: What’s the big deal about where I’m from? Are you not a woman? Am I not a man? I’ve seen the way you look at me. I know you like me. Me, I’m crazy about you. Is it the religion thing that’s worrying you? Okay, If I become Chukwumusa or Mohammed Chukwu for you nko, will it solve the problem? I know you wanna be with me deep inside”
Laraba: (Bursts out laughing) you’re really a crazy guy! Look, it can never work! Don’t waste your breathe, and please stop coming to my office. Don’t block my chances with my future husband. Laraba starts to walk away and Chuks runs after her.
“Since we are talking about your people and my people-have you ever seen an Ibo man give up? I will remind you of today, when you are my wife”. Chuks walks away to Laraba’s relief. The guy just didn’t get it!
