Lola took the cue to go to the restroom to freshen up. On her way, she passed the high table, where her mother-in-law was seated, as the Mother of the Bride. She stopped to greet her, and received a big hug and lots of kisses. Bimbo Adetayo was a very happy woman today.
She asked after her son and grand-daughter, and Lola answered happily that they were all doing fine. She smiled on her way to the bathroom. Now, she really needed to go and check whether she had lipstick stains all over her face from Mama’s kisses.
As she reached the restrooms, she saw a young lady come out of the men’s bathroom. She frowned, not really knowing what to make of it. Were people really that desperate? They couldn’t wait till the party was over to get it on?
She walked the small distance to the women’s restroom, and stole a look back at the men’s, a little curious to see if a man would sneak out of it too. Her mouth dropped open and she held back a gasp, when she saw who it was. She rushed into the ladies, before he could turn and see her.
How could he???
