LETTER TO MY GIRLFRIEND
(Clash of love)
A Story Written By Bright Daniel
Mr Randy wondered why his wife stopped at the staircase looking at Mr Bernard. At the same time, Mr Bernard averted his eyes from Rita to Mr Randy and said, “Are you Randy?”
“Yes, Mr Randy and this is my wife, Rita” Mr Randy replied surprisingly. From then Mr Bernard understood perfectly who he was. Without saying anything Rita gently sat beside her husband still staring at Mr Bernard.
“It seems like we have met before?” Mr Randy began.
“No, no, no, i don’t think so” Mr Bernard pretended and glanced at Rita. Even Brano, Nath and Agatha listened to them carefully monitoring their strange behaviours. From that moment, Mr Randy became uncomfortable trying so hard to remember Mr Bernard’s face.
“I only came to appreciate you on what you have done in the life of my son” Mr Bernard began. “Thank you very much”
“You are welcome” Mr Randy replied without smiling.
“Let me get them something to eat, Daddy” Agatha stood up.
“Oh yes” the father said with an unwilling smile. Yet, Rita kept staring at Mr Bernard.
“Let me help my daughter in the kitchen” she stood up to the kitchen. Nath looked at Brano and both smiled while Mr Randy stared at Mr Bernard again whose face was downward tapping his foot vigorously. Now, he was gettinga clear remembrance of his face.
“Where do you stay?” Mr Randy asked.
Mr Bernard raised his head. “Here in Fehen city but a bit far from here” he replied.
“Do you know the person called Mary?”
Mr Bernard kept quiet.
Hearing that, Nath also paid more attention but Brano had no idea.
“Nath, can you show your friend around” Mr Randy said. Nath knew he used that to have some privacy with Mr Bernard, so he glanced at him and went into his room with Brano.
Agatha became surprise seeing her mother in the kitchen. She looked nervous to her but she keep quiet bringing plates while her mother took charge of the pot of soup. She could see how her hands vibrated on the lid of the pot.
“Mummy, are you okay?”
“I’m fine, sweetheart” the mother replied without looking at her.
Agatha kept quiet. She wanted to talk to her about her love life, Nath and the phone call she overhead her making the previous day but didn’t know how to start. “Mummy, i want to tell you something”
“About my love… about Nath” Agatha stammered.
“I don’t want to talk about him” the mother replied then she became disappointed.
“Would you like to talk about me?” Agatha was still inquisitive.
“Yes” the mother began to dish the food.
“Someone claims to love me”
“I’m sorry, sweetheart, this is not the right time” the mother replied. Her mind was at the sittingroom thinking what was going on with her husband and Mr Bernard.
Agatha became disappointed again. She waited for a moment and said, “Should this be the right time to talk about your phone call conversation that took place yesterday in the sittingroom?”
The mother turned sharply suspending whatever she was doing staring at her daughter who stood boldly staring at her too….
“You know very well who i am” Mr Randy began looking at Mr Bernard. “I can see it from your face and you can’t deny it. You were one of those who kidnapped and separated me from Mary years ago?”
Mr Bernard knew he had been caught red handed and due to how good Mr Randy was he decided to tell him the truth.
“Yes, you are right?” he replied then Mr Randy stood up sharply. “Calm down Rita planned it all” he added.
“You mean Rita my wife?”
“Yes, i will explain to you because you are a good man. Please, sit down”
“Just go on!” Mr Randy began to boil in anger standing up with his ears totally active…..
Nath made Brano feel at home. He told him to see on his bed while he headed to the fridge for a drink and snack.
“How did your life change to this?” Brano asked looking around.
“Is a long story, bro” Nath handed a drink to him and sat on a chair with his also and crossed his legs. “You are a good person, why do you associate yourself with bad boys”
Brano smiled knowing very well he was talking about Mento and Emma. “They are almost like my childhood friends”
“Yes” they became quiet.
“Why did you prefer to save me?” Nath brook the silence.
“Coz i found it unnecessary to wast your life”
“Even my sister, Agatha?” Nath stared at him.
“I had met your sister at a restaurant before the weeding”
“So you are the person she told me about”
“She did?” Brano became inquisitive staring at him but Nath kept quiet..
“What conversation are you talking about?” Rita asked her daughter.
“Mummy, i overheard you!” Agatha replied boldly. Just then they heard Mr Randy shouting in the sittingroom. So they ran out likewise Brano and Nath.
“You!!” Mr Randy pointed at his wife. “You are living my house now!” he ran upstairs to carry out her bags.
“Honey, please, don’t do this” Rita pleaded feeling tears in her eyes.
“Mummy, what is going on?” Agatha asked.
Nath and Brano were still speechless..
