LETTER TO MY GIRLFRIEND
(Clash of love)
A Story Written By Bright Daniel
Mr Randy’s resident was as quiet as a graveyard. Only the sound a female journalist was heard from the television in the sittingroom where Mr Randy was watching CNN news. He sat opposite the large television in his hugeness with his two hands on the chair handrest. He wore a long brown caftan and leather footwears having much enthusiasm on the news. Suddenly, the gateman came in humbly.
“Sir, some people are at the gate. They said they want to see you”
“Did they say who they are?”
“Uhm…” the gateman rolled his eyes up on the ceiling pointing a finger beside his cheek. “Mr Williams, sir” he smiled.
“Please, let them in”
Few moment later Joyce and her parents entered into the sittingroom and greeted Mr Randy who offered them seat.
However, Nath was still in his room waiting to receive Cynthia’s replied of the message he sent to her. He stood up walking to the four corners of the room.
Agatha, on the other hand, wondered in thought about many things. She couldn’t behold Nath again due to anger and his stupidity (as she called it).
“What a surprise visit!” Mr Randy began in the sittingroom looking at Mr Williams. “You should have called me on phone that stressing yourself down here”
“Well, not every discussion should be a telephone conversation” Mr Williams replied.
“I hope no problem”
“I’m afraid there is” Mr Williams sat up and Mr Randy lowered the volume of the television being more enthusiastic. “We just find out that your son has put my daughter, Joyce in the family way”
“You don’t mean it!” Mr Randy kept the television remote and yelled Nath’s name making Agatha to also come out.
Nath presented himself before his father and the visitors. He stared at Joyce a bit then looked at her parents whom he greeted. He had a clue why they were there but couldn’t imaging the shame. Agatha refused to sit down, she leaned on the wall with her hands folded and one of her legs up on the wall making a triangular shape. Joyce saw her looking at her angrily but averted her eyes.
“Nath, is it true you impregnated Joyce?” the father asked but Nath kept quiet staring at Joyce. “Nath, I’m asking you!” the father yelled.
“Yes, Daddy” Nath replied. “Yes, i caused it all”
“Can you listen to yourself? Now what do you intend to do?”
Joyce listened carefully staring at Nath to here him say he will marry her. Nath also stared at her lost in thought of Cynthia, how she will feel and together with the love they have in common. As he tried to speak, the gateman came in again.
“Sir, another people are here to see you”
“Who are they?”
“Is Cynthia and her parents”
Hearing that, everybody began to look at one another. Nath’s heart began to beat faster staring at the door. He averted his eyes to Agatha who wasn’t smiling or moving.
“Bring them in” Mr Randy told the gateman and glanced at Nath again.
Cynthia walked in with her parents looking surprise to see Joyce and her parents too. She glanced at Agatha, Joyce and stared at Nath who wasn’t smiling. They were given seats and welcomed.
“May i know who you are?” Mr Randy said.
“With all humility, sir” Mr Morgan began. “We came in peace. Cynthia my daughter is pregnant for your son”
“What?!” Mr Williams and Randy exclaimed. Then Joyce became surprise staring at Nath.
“Nath!” the father called. “What is going on?! Is it true!?”
Cynthia stared at Nath’s lips wanting to here nothing but the truth.
“Yes, is true” Nath replied then the father exclaimed again.
“Are you saying you are a womanizer?”
Tears circled in Nath’s eyes. “No Daddy, nobody will understand. It was never my intention for all this to happen. Please, don’t see me as a womanizer…”
“You should be ashamed of yourself!” the father interrupted. “You better get ready to marry both of them” he concluded then Cynthia shook her head negatively in tears. Nath could see her.
“Both? Who and who?” Mr Morgan asked.
“We came with the same issue” Mr Williams replied him then he shouted.
Mr Randy pleaded to the two families, he promised for the right thing to be done and called Mrs Mary immediately.
After an hour, Nath met Agatha in her room standing at the door.
“Please, forgive me. Don’t ignore me like this. I know i have wronged everybody and I’m proud to accept it” he sniffed in and walked away to Cynthia’s without Agatha saying a word.
Both Cynthia and Nath were in tears exchanging words in front of Mr Morgan’s resident.
“Please, I’m sorry. You have to forgive me” Nath cried.
“Just leave me! I can’t believe you did this to me” Cynthia cried too.
“I never wanted to do it, please my love. You are the one i love!”
“I don’t believe you. Just leave me alone!” Cynthia took off the engagement ring, she threw it on the ground and ran inside.
“Cynthia i beg you! Forgive me, please!!” Nath shouted in a loud voice. He picked the ring and headed to Joyce’s resident with a broken heart to plead to her parents…
