LETTER TO MY GIRLFRIEND
(Clash of love)
A Story Written By Bright Daniel
Nath’s spirit shook his head negatively in tears looking at Joyce. The room wasn’t bright and at the same time materials were visible. How would Joyce know that Nath was standing before her as she cried and soliloquized with her head facing downward?
“I’m so sorry, Nath. I never mean to hurt you. Please, forgive me..” Joyce soliloquized in tears.
“Forgive me too” Nath interrupted before Joyce looked up.
“Jesus!” she shouted and jumped on the bed standing at the corner. “Na.. Nat.. Nath what..?”
“I’m sorry for not being able to love you back” Joyce could see blood coming out from his mouth as he spoke bitterly. “Even if i was unable to love you back, please take care of my child”
“Was?” Joyce’s heartbeat increased looking surprise. “What do u mean by was? How did you even get in here and what happened to you?”
“Good bye” Nath concluded and disappeared. Then Joyce shouted in a loud voice to the extent her mother rushed inside and grabbed her tightly.
“What is it?!”
“What happened to him?!”
“Mummy, he was here!”
“Mummy, he.. he disappeared!!”
The mother looked around but couldn’t see anybody. Before she knew it, Joyce disengaged herself from her and grabbed her phone to call Nath but the number was switched off. Then she rushed out with her car key.
As Cynthia was rushing to Nath’s resident, so as Joyce was on her way too. Cynthia looked tattered in the taxi shedding tears. As she approached to where the accident happen seeing crowd of people, she stopped and came down. She tried to see through but couldn’t until she forcefully got to the front, she saw nobody but just blood stains on the floor.
“What happened here?” she asked a boy.
“Na accident oh! The boy just died instantly. Fine boy like that oh!” the boy replied with his hand folded.
“Where is he?”
“They don carry’am comot”
Cynthia left the place and continued her journey to Nath’s resident.
Joyce also came across the place where the accident happened, she wondered but headed to Nath’s resident too. As they were coming, Mr Randy had already came back and met Agatha and Mrs Mary still in the parlour. He couldn’t control his emotions, he took off his cap and collapsed on the cushion.
Mary stood up surprisingly. “What is it?” she asked but Mr Randy never said a word rather tears began to come out from his eyes making Agatha stood up too.
“Daddy, you are shedding tears”
“Chim oh” Mary adjusted her wrapper and sat beside him. “Talk to us nah. Who is the person you went to see?”
“Nath.. Nath..” Mr Randy began then the two women listened carefully. “Nath is dead”
“Heeeehh!” Mary exclaimed and gradually landed on the floor. Meanwhile, tears had already circled in Agatha’s eyes.
“Daddy, you are joking, right?”
“No my daughter, he had an accident” the father replied bitterly in tears.
“No no no..” Agatha shook her head negatively and shouted in a loud voice. She fell on the floor crying seriously. Cynthia arrived, she saw them crying and began to cry too without being told what happened. Joyce at the same time came and joined them…
It was Nath’s burial. Even people who do not know him but saw his handsome smiling autograph (poster) came around. His body was in a white casket and him on a white suit with white cotton in his nostrils. Blood could still be seen coming out from his mouth.
“Nath, please, wake up!” Agatha cried on the ground. “You are the only brother i have, please don’t leave me lonely”
Cynthia and Joyce forcefully ran to the casket in tears and held it looking at the lifeless body of Nath. “No! Nath don’t do this to me. Remember you promise to make me the happiest person on earth. Please, don’t leave me to where i cannot go..” Cynthia cried.
Joyce’s voice wasn’t loud anymore due to she had been crying. She laid beside the casket crying bitterly with Miracle by her side.
“Ooh God!!” Mr Randy shouted spacing out into the sky. “God why me? My only son! Why me?! Chai!! What have i done, God?!” tears rolled out from his eyes…
Agatha’s room was quit bright with the AC on. She laid in her bed sleeping, moving her legs vigorously and murmuring: NATH PLEASE WAKE UP.. Suddenly, she became fully awake feeling tears in her eyes. She wordered the kind of dream she had and tried to remember the last thing that happened before she slept. “Cynthia’s and Joyce’s family came here to tell my Daddy about their daughters’ pregnancy” she thought and exhaled holding her chest. “Thank God is a dream” she added. Suddenly, she heard a knock at the door then her heart skipped. “Who is it?”
“Is me Nath!” Nath replied and opened it at the same time. Then Agatha rushed and hugged him tightly to his surprise. “What’s this all about?”
“I love you so much” Agatha replied on his shoulder.
“I love you too” Nath was still surprise. “I want to go and see Cynthia and Joyce’s parents” he added then Agatha stared at him remembering her dream..
