Kiki sat on the park bench, staring humbly at the passers by. Last night's row with Tolu was the cause of her blues. Agonizing despite the fact that it had been, she did not be remorseful the break up. His domineering and jealous character had been the cause of many a fight connecting the two. Kiki just hunted out. This toxic bond wasn't worth the trouble. It was easily time to move on.

What actually concerned Kiki was the dig of being alone at Easter time, lacking a date or a steady boyfriend. It was the tradition among her category and acquaintances to throw a run of parties and get-togethers in the week of Easter. This was to celebrate the many birthdays and anniversaries that coincided with this time of the year.

For the last three years Kiki had attended these functions solo, much to her embarrassment. It seemed that every one else was each married or with a "special some one" in tow! Some how, her relationships just seemed to self-destruct about Easter. Kiki was by now quite fed up with the well-meaning matchmaking attempts of her children and friends. She was gritty not to give them a new chance. But how could she find love, on such short notice? Would she rent a date?! Or endure the matchmakers one more time?

Beep! Beep! Her cell phone phone went off, bringing her out of her reverie. It was Arin, her trusty flatmate. "Hi Arin! Sorry, I'll be there in a minute. Can you order my usual please?" Kiki was appointment Arin and Bolu for lunch. Arin, Kiki and her younger sister, Bolu joint a flat off high brow Opebi road in Ikeja, Lagos. The three had much in common, all young, distinct and upwardly cellular phone entrepreneurs. A quick glance at her watch bare that Kiki was previously five log late. Arin was a nit-picker for punctuality. She would have to apologise. Again.

At Barcelos restaurant the threesome lunched and made small talk, having complete the day's business. They had this weekly assembly point where they met and reviewed their not public and commerce goals. Since presence a goal-setting colloquium six months earlier, this had develop into a tradition. And it was absolutely paying off. Kiki, a writer, Arin, a partner in a recruiting firm, and Bolu, photographer and owner of a photo-studio, they had their careers and businesses absolutely on the up-and-up. But Kiki couldn't help wondering what was going wrong with her love life.

Unknown to Kiki, Bolu and Arin had signed her up with an online, Christian dating service. They felt she desired an extra push and were gritty to give it themselves! Of course, Kiki would have killed them if she knew! But Bolu and Arin painstaking it worth the risk! They had select a advantage that catered to young, certified Christians. Any exact from now, Kiki would be contacted. And they sought to be on hand, to guarantee that she followed through!

"What do you say we all visit the newly-opened cyber cafť down the road?" Bolu quipped. "Good idea," replied Arin, bountiful Bolu a deliberate glance. "But why be supposed to we do that when we are online at home?" Kathy quizzed. To this they chorused, "Because our ma?tre d'h?tel is down, and will be till the weekend, remember?"

Cyberia was a lovely place. Fully air-conditioned, quiet, with a very fast internet connection, it was just the place for acute work. The three advanced down and logged in. It wasn't long ahead of a quiet scream was heard from Kiki's cubicle.

Arin and Bolu in progress off towards her, feigning surprise. "What's the matter?" Arin queried. "Have you won the lottery?" "Look at this!" Kiki seethed. "These spammers must be crazy! A dating service? Me?! This is beyond doubt spam, and I'm going to bang it. To Yahoo! To Bill Gates, to Phil Emeagwali, and to Interpol?. " "Wait a minute! What does it say? At least take a look at it," pleaded Bolu. "I am beyond doubt not fascinated in any more matchmaking. I can find a guy for myself," replied Kiki. "Besides, what would be the use of a virtual boyfriend? I need some one to go with me to the Easter parties"

By this time, Bolu had clicked on the "I accept" button, confirming Kiki's sign-up. The next thing they knew, a profile appeared on the screen. Here was Kiki's new virtual boyfriend! "What do you two think you are doing?!" Kiki cried, exasperated. "Some day you'll be grateful," was all the reply she got. The attendant had been motioning to them to keep the noise down. Now he was caption in their direction.

Will Kiki be obliged to Arin and Bolu? Will she find love in time for Easter? Find out in Part Two!
