Character Interview of Adaora Dike from Wild Whispers
In your own words, please introduce yourself to our readers?
Hello readers, I’m Adaora Dike, a cheeky and friendly Nigerian woman but my best friend thinks I’m a cry baby. With brown skin, dark eyes and full curves, I turned twenty-seven on April 30th. I think I hide my emotions well…at least most of the time. Before tragedy stuck, I owned an Art Gallery in Abuja. At the moment, I live alone in the woods in Dagor Village in South-South Nigeria and I’m happy with who I am.
Good to meet you, Adaora. I hear life has thrown you a few curved balls, how do you cope with the quiet in the woods?
There is nothing that has happened to me that is uncommon to a woman. Life is full of ups and downs and I just get on with it because I’m a survivor. The great thing about living in the woods is not the peace and quiet but the mixture of nature’s raw beauty and diverse sounds. The cock crow wakes me up like clockwork each morning, the humming sounds of various birds and insects plus the drumbeat of rain water hitting the ground combine to keep me grounded.
Adaora, you have no trace of bitterness and you sound so dignified. Is there anyone in your life you want our readers to know about?
Two days ago, I would have said there was no one of interest. But last night, the heavy downpour washed a fair, tall and gorgeous man to my doorstep. His name is Gary Mason. He stands out because he is sensitive, thoughtful and a complete gentleman. Even though I have known him for a short time, we connect on so many levels. As shocking as it sounds, it is a connection we both want to explore.
Sounds sweet. Is Gary a romantic and do you think he will make you happy?
Oh yes, Gary is a romantic. Within the first few hours that we met, he gave me a shoulder massage and I melted into his strong arms as if I belonged with him. And when his crystal grey eyes caresses my skin, I know there is something about this stranded man from Surrey in London that will make me happy. I just don’t know how long this happiness will last.
Even though you have only known Gary for a short time, can you share one annoying habit he has?
Lol! Gary has only spent one night with me so far but I teased him about his untidiness and we had a good laugh about it. I love to clean and clear up anyway, so it is okay.
Do you think wedding bells will ring in the near future?
Are you joking? I have no idea. I was married before and it ended badly. Let’s just say I’m not in a big hurry to walk down the aisle a second time. But you never know. Things change and Gary seems so intense and relaxed at the same time. When I figure out how his mind works, I will let you know.
What is your favourite food, Adaora?
Egg sauce with fried yam slices. I shared it with Gary on our first morning together because he surprised me in the most thoughtful way. Thank you for having me on your blog.
Finally, give our readers your parting shot?
I can only say, don’t judge others based on what you hear or see. Get to know them before you form an opinion.
Thank you for chatting with us, Adaora.
The pleasure is mine. Thank you for having me.
