House Of Secrets🏘️🏘️
I had prepared breakfast for everyone and now I was preparing
myself to go see the pastor at the hospital. I had already made
something hot for him to drink, I hoped he was okay.
I decided to go through Grace’s things once more, I had never
met her in person but I felt I had known her my entire life.
I fetched her album and stared at her pictures again especially the
one she stood with Romeo, they looked so great together, I was
