Danielle’s friend was dating Sifa’s cousin. They had the amazing idea that Danielle and Sifa would get along. And so this love story began with a phone call. Sifa dialed the number and looked down at the list of topics he had made in case the conversation stalled. He never needed that list. Danielle was the girl he could talk to, the one he could laugh with, the one that listened to his poetry, the one that made him smile… just thinking about her. Then came the first date and both Danielle and Sifa worried if they would like each other. Danielle’s mom drove her to meet him and teased her all the way there. Danielle looked at the boy who years later would be the man that proposed on a beach and thought…”Thank God he’s hot!” They watched a movie and Danielle cried during a sad scene. She feared Sifa would laugh at her, but he instead comforted her. She knew then that the sweet boy who could up put with her at her worst, had to be the one. She was in love… Forever.
