LETTER TO MY GIRLFRIEND
(Clash of love)
A Story Written By Bright Daniel
Nath wore the same suit he came back with from his father’s company; black in colour with shoes. He gently walked up to Joyce who stared at him speechless with unfolded hands. “Nath?” she called.
“Hi” Nath stood before her.
“Whao.. what..” Joyce looked around his shop and his car. “What happened?” she began to touch his suit in amazement.
Nath smile. “Is a long story. Come on, let’s go” he opened the front door for her then she gently entered. Nath kept smiling at her as they headed to an expensive restaurant. He could see her eyes and whole body depressed due of pressure and too much of thinking.
At the restaurant, Nath had explained to Joyce how his life suddenly changed. It was incredible to her. She held his two hands on the table inbetween them smiling seriously. “I’m so happy for you!” she said.
Nath reciprocated smiling too. “Thanks” he said looking into her eyes. “You look depressed and frustrated”
Joyce’s face changed instantly. She gently disengaged her hands from his. “Yes, it has been so frustrating”
“What are your plans?”
“I will take my life the way i see it”
“You can’t say that”
“What do you want me to say? I have tried to please myself severally but.. but.. it seems not to work. I guess i should please others”
“What do you mean by that”
“I have to please my family and that of Mr Josh by marrying Mento”
Nath became quiet looking at her. “Joyce” he called. “You and i know you will forever be sad if you go on with your decision”
“Are you ready to make me the happiest woman on earth?” Joyce asked but Nath went dumb. She smiled and took her drink. “Is obvious you can’t help me. Go for her, she belongs to you” Joyce added.
“Are you really asking me that? Cynthia of course”
“Joyce, I’m so sorry..”
“You don’t need to. It’s just a clash of love” Joyce interrupted with a smile to hold her tears but Nath could see tears dripping from her eyes, yet, she kept smiling as if it would console her. Nath gave her his handkerchief but she ignored it and brought out hers then began to dry her tears. “Don’t worry, is my life now, i will take it as it is” she concluded.
Nath drove joyce home. Both didn’t exchange words of anything. She walked into his house while Nath went back home feeling woozy. He didn’t know what or who to think of.
However, Joyce met her parents in the sittingroom. Without greeting them, she said, “Start planning for the wedding between Mento and i” she walked upstairs.
Mr and Mrs Williams looked at each other without saying a think.
“Go ahead and call Mr Josh” the wife said.
Without replying, the husband called Mr Josh.
“Please, my daughter is ready for the wedding”
“The wedding will take place in few weeks time” Mr Josh replied then cut the call.
Meanwhile, Joyce couldn’t control her tears in the room.
Nath sluggishly collapsed on his bed. With his legs, he began to pull off his shoes.
“You are back” Agatha came in.
“Yeah” Nath replied.
“Then start calling Cynthia now” Agatha opened the door. “I can’t wait to see her here tomorrow” she went out then Nath gave a weak smile.
Joyce had already told Miracle her mind.
Meanwhile, at this time, Cynthia’s mood at home changed. She wasn’t looking happy as she cooked with her mother in the kitchen. Her problem was that Nath had not called her, even to check on her. So she became worried. Her mother could see how she was forcefully cutting vegetable out of anger then she said, “Cynthia, take it easy nah!”
“Mother leave me nah, I’m doing it!”
“What is your problem sef?”
Just then, she head her father’s voice saying that her phone was ringing. Then she quickly rushed into her room and picked the call.
“Hello my love” Nath sounded on the phone.
“What kept you so long?” Cynthia asked with a low voice. “I have been so worried”
“I’m so sorry dear. Guess what?”
“What” Cynthia sat on her bed smiling.
“I’m coming to pick you tomorrow to my house”
“Really?! I can’t wait!”
“I miss you a lot”
“i miss you more”
“Bye” the line went off.
Cynthia and Nath drove into the resident of Mr Randy. She couldn’t believe how big the house was. Agatha ran out and hugged her before they entered into the sittingroom just to find Mr Randy ending a calling with Rita, his wife.
“Your mother said she will be coming back in the next few weeks” Mr Randy turned.
“That’s a good news!” Agatha shouted.
“Good evening, sir” Cynthia greeted.
“How are you?” Mr Randy asked.
“I’m fine sir”
Nath quickly did an introduction with a smiled. His father was happy, he welcomed Cynthia before going out. Then Nath had a romantic time with Cynthia.
Three days remaining for Rita to come back. And a day for Joyce’s wedding with Mento.
Cynthia came out from bathroom looking at herself in the mirror because she was having signs of early pregnancy.
On the other hand, Joyce was confirmed to be 3weeks pregnant by a doctor..
