The first thing I noticed was the jewel-effect on the back of her Blackberry. We were on the Hammersmith and City line train headed east from Paddington. She took a call from the phone. As she spoke - about getting her car fixed - I detected a few yoruba words. When she finished, I asked her se daada ni? It took a few seconds for her to realise what I was saying. She burst into laughter. Her face was like an Ife head, slightly on the round side. She was beautiful. We said our goodbyes when the train reached Euston Square.
