LETTER TO MY GIRLFRIEND
(Clash of love)
A Story Written By Bright Daniel
At the resident of Mr Williams, Nath arrived and found only Joyce’s mother in the sittingroom. He looked depressed, hopeless and frustrated. He refused to sit down after Mrs Williams offered him a seat. He lacked words, yet had a lot to say but doesn’t know where to start.
“Please, sit down” Mrs Williams said again piteously.
“No..” Nath swallowed a saliva. “I don’t know where to start but you have to listen to me”
Just then Joyce gently began to walk down the stairs but stopped at the middle. She wore a blue gown which she supported with her hand and stared at Nath. Nath turned to see her but averted his eyes to Mrs Williams again. He continued. “I have accepted to be responsible of your daughter’s pregnancy. I promise to take care of the child but can’t marry her..” his words made Joyce shed tears from the stairs. Even Nath couldn’t control his, remembering Cynthia’s reaction lately. He continued, “What happened between Joyce and i was a mistake. I can’t afford to lose Cynthia, i love her so much, she mean the whole world to me. Now how can i continue knowing she has broken up with me?? Please, accept my suggestion”
Mrs Williams became speechless seeing such a man shed tears. She glanced at her daughter seeing her in tears too. “Is for my husband to decide. If it is in my power, i will agree on your suggestion because love is by choice and shouldn’t be forced. I’ll advice you come back later”
“Thank you” Nath turned and walked out but Joyce hurried to him.
“Nath!” she shouted in tears then Nath turned. “I never wanted everything to happen this way. I was carried away with what i feel for you as my first love which turned to be my first tragedy. I never wanted to make you cry. I never wished for all this to happen but I’m ready to love you forever and i must so will, as long as i live on this earth. I’m sorry for your broken heart. I know Cynthia will accept you back…” as she spoke in tears, Nath stared in tears too. He gently entered into his car without saying anything to Joyce. He waited for so long before putting the key in the ignition. Then Joyce watched him drove off.
Tears never ceased to come out from Nath’s eyes on the stirringwheel. He began to remember his past life, his poor mechanic life and Cynthia. “Why all this God? First, i fell inlove but had clash of love. Secondly, i found my real parents but have not been at peace” he glanced at the engagement ring. “Cynthia, i love you so much, i hope you forgive me” before he could turn from the ring to his front he ran into a moving trailer and died instantly…
Mrs Mary, Nath’s mother had arrived already waiting for her son to come back. She was disappointed base on what Mr Randy told her. So she waited patiently with him in the sittingroom for Nath to come.
“My son cannot impregnant two girls at the same time. No, my son is like that!” Mary shouted.
“I thought as much but..” Mr Randy was interrupted by a phone call. As he answered, Agatha came out and greeted Mrs Mary.
“What?!” Mr Randy shouted and stood up. Mary stood up too staring at him as well as Agatha. “Which road..? I’m coming” he cut the call and took his car key immediately.
“Daddy, what is it?” Agatha asked.
“Where are you rushing to?” Mrs Mary added.
“I have to attend to someone right now” Mr Randy replied without looking at them and rushed out.
On the road, people gathered looking at Nath’s lifeless body by the road side stained with blood all over his body. He wore a plain trouser and a long sleeve shirt which he tocked in but it was stained with blood and opened carelessly. A large quantity of blood rushed out from his head. Somany people who do not even know him began to cry.
“How can such a thing happen to a handsome boy like this?” a woman cried. “God!”
Some shook their head piteously with their hands folded.
Back to Cynthia’s resident. She was still in her room looking moody and sniffing in tears. She sluggishly went out in front of the compound and saw Nath standing at the middle still shedding tears with blood stains. “Nath?” she called surprisingly moving closer. “What happened? Why are in blood..”
“Stop my love” Nath interrupted her. “I still beg you for forgiveness. It was never my intention 2 cheat on you. Now i have gone to where you cannot come. It hurt me so much that i will not be with you. How can i rest in peace without knowing you have forgiven me and be with me forever?”
“Nath what are you talking about?” Cynthia began to shed tears taking another steps.
“Please, take care of my child. I love you so much my love” Nath concluded and disappeared.
“Jesus!” Cynthia exclaimed and fell on the floor. “Nath!!” she shouted in tears. She stood up and began to run to the road heading to Nath’s resident.
Joyce was still in tears crying uncontrollably with her head facing downward. Nath appeared before her, close to the wall staring at her without her notice..
