My mind as a teenager
We waited for him to recover and
hopefully,he did. Everyone who asked was
told that he travelled out.
Trully,he recovered and had to make up for
his absence. He travelled to avoid suspicion
and while returning,he bought me another
phone(which I gave to my mum),changed my
wardrobe and bought lots of goodies for the
family. I was happy to have him back
because I had grown to love him.
He told me he was leaving again for a
business which would change our lives more.
In order to wait for him,I’m working at his
brother In-laws construction company.
He’ll be back by next month. How time flies.
Raymond wouldn’t believe it. He didn’t believe a lot of good tidings would hit my way at the same time.
Raymond and I talk. We’re still very close.
We still hang out most time he comes around
and each time,I try to ask him if he’s happy.
Though I don’t like his wife for telling him
those things about Kamsi not looking like
him,I still rejoiced with him when their new
baby,Chikaima came. It made me happy and
I found out that I had forgiven him for
Talking about happiness,I pray he is happy
with his marriage, that nothing gets to
mislead him,if not for anything,for that pretty
daughter of his.
My life is going in a direction where all I can
do now is thank God for bringing me this far.
I believe my past experience was just a way
God used in teaching me
how to overcome certain circumstances.
Raymond and I will remain best of friends for
life because I want to keep him close to
share in all my happiness and to share in his
Skipoo and I met last three weeks and when
he asked me why Raymond didn’t marry me,I
laughed and told him that I was getting
married to someone better than Raymond.
Most people with similar experiences like
mine may not be patient or optimistic but I
believe I pulled through because of the love
and support of my family. If only you can try
to involve your parents in everything, if only
you can cut down a lot of unnecessary
excesses,if only you can remember that not
everyone means well for you,if only you can
remember this story……. If only you can
There are lots of “if” s but let me stop here. I
love you all for reading my story,the
attention,they were just more than I expected
but I pray that we all get whatever it is that
we desire in life,just as I got mine……….
Thanks for reading.
