LETTER TO MY GIRLFRIEND
(Clash of love)
A Story Written By Bright Daniel
Mrs Randy sat properly watching a programme on the television, yet her mouth never ceased to get busy. She looked at the direction of the door when her husband entered followed by Nath and his mother. She couldn’t recognise them thinking they were visitors. Just then Agatha came down and hugged her father and Nath then Mrs Randy paid more attention.
“Hi, honey, welcome” she said from the cushion.
“Thanks” the husband replied and moved gently to another cushion followed by Agatha. Mary stared at Rita as he stood close to Nath.
“Come in and sit down” Rita told them then turned to her husband, “Honey, who are your visitors?”
“Take a good look at them again” the husband replied then she stared at Mary properly whose eyes were already wet with tears.
“Mary?” Rita stood up watched by her daughter, Agatha. “You are alive?”
“Yes, i am alive” Mary replied.
“How… how did you..” she paused and hugged her while Mary also reciprocated. Nath glanced at his father and Agatha then concentrated. After the unexpected welcome from Rita she told Mary to sit down without knowing who Nath is. “Who is this?” she asked Mary looking at Nath who was still standing up.
“He’s my son” Mary replied.
“Uhm… Honey listen” Mr Randy began then everybody became quiet. “I know you must be wondering how i found Mary but fate has brought us together again” Rita’s face changed hearing that. ” This boy here is Nathaniel, my son from her and…”
“What?!” Raita exclaimed angrily and stood up. “You mean you..”
“Mary was pregnant for me before we were separated” Mr Randy interrupted her.
“And so what?!”
“You want to bring in another wife into this house? That can never…”
“Shut up and sit down!!” Mr Randy roared before everywhere became quiet but Rita was still standing. She glanced at Nath and Mary angrily then walked upstairs. The husband called her back severally but she continued going until the door of her room slammed closed.
“Just make yourselves at home” Mr Randy stood up.
“Wait” Mary interrupted him. “We cannot make ourselves at home, you know that”
“It will no longer be home but hell if i, particularly stay here. I suggest i go back”
“No, you are going nowhere”
“Then you are making a mistake because Rita is your wife!”
Mr Randy became speechless. He looked at Mary steadily then walked upstairs.
“Please, stay” Agatha said with a low voice staring at Mrs Mary.
Just then Rita walked down again. “Just listen” she began. “You better leave this house with your..”
“Is enough, Rita!” Mary interrupted her. “I have not come here to destroy your marriage. I can’t believe that you of all people could betray me”
“Is it my fault that you disappeared?!”
“Only God knows”
“Just get out!”
Mr Randy, hearing their voices came down again. “Go back to your room, now!” he commanded Rita.
However, Mary had headed to the door.
“I can’t allow you bring her into this house!” Rita concluded and went back inside. Then Mr Randy rushed out to Mary while Nath remained inside with Agatha looking at each other. He gently turned to leave but Agatha rushed him.
“Please, don’t go too” she held his arm looking into his eyes. “You are the only brother i have, please, don’t leave me”
“I will not leave you” Nath replied.
“Then let’s go to your room so you can have a rest”
Nath stared at her for a moment. “Let me talk to my mother”
“Alright” Agatha gently disengaged her hand.
Outside the house, Mr Randy pleaded to Mary but she insisted.
“Father” Nath came out. “Please, let her be” he turned to his mother and said, “Mother, take care of yourself”
“What are you talking about?” Mr Randy interfered but didn’t get a respond.
Mary hugged her son then looked at Mr Randy. “Please, take care of my son” she concluded and left.
Nath and his father watched her silently until she vanished.
“Don’t force her, Dad” Nath said without looking at him.
“I hope she comes back”
“Yes, she will” Nath turned with his father and they went inside.
Agatha and Nath dressed up. They were going to different places but with a single car; Nath wanted to see Cynthia while Agatha to Brano, probably to pay his hospital bills according to her father. They walked down stairs looking good just to see Mrs Rand in the parlour.
“Good morning, Mummy” Agatha greeted.
“Morning” she replied. Nath also greeted her but she didn’t respond. “Where are you going to, Agatha?”
“Mummy, we are going out”
“Yes, Nath and i”
“Mummy.. my brother”
“You must be stupid!!”
Nath listened to her silently staring at her but didn’t say a word.
“Never you refer to him as your brother again!” Rita instructed.
“By why, Mummy?”
“No, you shut up!” Mr Randy came out. “What has come over you?!” he looked at Nath and Agatha. “You may go to where you are going”
Nath walked out with Agatha’s hand attached to his.
“See me in my room, now!” Mr Randy commanded his wife…
