I stood for a brief moment in disbelief. A date? Okay, I guess that would not be a problem. I did find myself attracted to one or two of the villagers I had met. One in particular stood out better than the rest. I thought about the man I had already chosen. Then, as if I was smacked back to reality, I jumped slightly at the 'ahem' of the Chief. He could obviously tell that I was slightly distracted. "Do you know who you wish to invite?" Cheif Fanglaloka inquired. "I know you have many optio.." I interrupted him accidentally. "Yes I know, I have chosen. Shall I call now?" "The festival will not start until you do my dear. Try and make it quick, our tribe wishes to celebrate!" He smiled and urged me to pick up the shell phone. I did.
Cheif Fangaloka swooned in my direction. "That was so sweet. You made a good choice. Akolo is a great man. He will suit you well, and provide for you should you need it." At that moment the Chief looked over my shoulder and smiled. He bid me to get the party started and started getting in the nearest hot spring. At first I did not know what he meant, but then I turned and saw Akolo coming.
