LETTER TO MY GIRLFRIEND
(Clash of love)
A Story Written By Bright Daniel
Kenzy inquiry about Cynthia in the General hospital proved negative.
Joyce was inside her room with Miracle when her mother walked in. She wore an expensive red elastic gown smiling as she sat opposite the two girls.
“How are you my sweetheart?” Mrs Williams asked Joyce.
“I’m fine, Mummy” she replied.
“Your story with that young girl is what is called ‘clash of love'” Mrs Williams began.
“Her name is Cynthia, Mummy”
“Yes, is obvious that both of you love the yungman so much, don’t you?”
Joyce glanced at Miracle before she replied nodding her head positively. Then her mother smiled again.
“But none of you knows your position in his heart” Mr Williams said. Miracle looked at Joyce again because she knew what Mrs Williams was talking about.
“What do you mean, Mummy?” Joyce asked.
“Both of you may fall inlove with Nath but his heart beat for only one woman, for the heart of a man knows where it belongs no matter what happens. What I’m saying is that, only the girl Nath’s heart beat for will end up with him. So the question is, who does he love?”
Joyce became sad because she knew she wasn’t the one. So she bent her head downward.
“Honey, do you know if Nath loves you?” the mother asked her.
Joyce stood up instantly. “I don’t know, Mummy” she walked into the bathroom. The mother could dictate or get her answer from her reaction. So she turned to Miracle and said, “Talk to your friend. I don’t want her to suffer again for she has suffered a lot”
“Yes, ma” Miracle replied.
“She has passed through emotional pains. I wouldn’t want her to pass through another one or makes a mistake she will regret for the rest of her life” Mrs Williams stood up and shuffled out.
How would Miracle tell her that Joyce had already made a mistake by carrying Nath’s child? So she placed her hand on her forehead feeling for her friend.
Mr Randy walked down the stairs and found Agatha arranging a food-flask inside a bag well dressed with the hope of seeing Brano at the General Hospital.
“Good morning, Daddy”
“Morning, put those things inside my car”
Agatha looked at her father. “Daddy, don’t worry, you can go to work, i will take the food to them.. hum.. sorry.. to him, i mean Nath” she stammered.
“No, I’m not going to work. Put the food in my car and stay at home”
Agatha became sad. “But why, Daddy?!”
“I don’t want your mother to look for you after she comes back” Mr Randy walked towards the door. Agatha was deprived from seeing Brano for that day but she couldn’t bear it. So she called back her father and said. “Daddy, please, allow me to follow you. I want to see the other boy that was shot too. He saved my life by taking the bullet that suppose to kill me. Please, Daddy” her voice sound piteous likewise the appearance on her face.
“Let’s go” the father said.
“Thank you, Daddy!” Agatha rejoiced.
Nath was fully awake at the General Hospital when Mr Randy and Agatha arrived. He smiled when he was touched by Agatha.
“Good morning, Nath” Agatha greeted.
“Hi, son” the father said.
“Good morning, Daddy” Nath greeted sounding very clear.
“How are you feeling?”
“I’m getting better”
As Agatha was bringing out the food, Mr Williams and his family entered. Joyce sat opposite Agatha on the bed while Mr and Mrs Williams stood beside Mr Randy and greeted too.
“Good morning” Joyce greeted Agatha then looked at Nath without minding if she would respond or not. “Nath, how are you?” she touched his cheek.
“I’m getting better” Nath smiled at her.
Just then, Mr Randy went out with Mr Williams to have man to man discussion.
“I brought food for yo..” Joyce wanted to say but interrupted by Agatha saying, “Don’t worry, i have food for him already”
Joyce stared at her for a moment without knowing what to say. She looked at her mum then brought out fruits. “Is okay, he will take fruit after eating” she stretched it to Agatha who collected it reluctantly.
“Good morning” Nath greeted Mrs Williams.
“How are you my dear?”
“Okay” Nath smiled then glanced at the door silently. “Where is Cynthia?” he asked then Joyce glanced at her mother…
Cynthia, had served breakfast sitting on the edge of her bed. All her mindset was on how Nath was doing. And she couldn’t go to the hospital coz she was already losing hope. “I wish you quick recovery.. I love you so much, Nath” she thought and glanced at her ringing phone. She couldn’t believe the caller: Emma. “Is he out of cell?” she thought and picked the call.
“Hello, Cynthia, is me Kenzy”
“Kenzy?” Cynthia became surprise…
Nath waited for a respond before Agatha said, “Cynthia will be coming”
“Why didn’t you bring her?” Nath asked again.
“Uhm.. because Daddy was in a hurry”
Mrs Williams monitored her daughter’s attitude to be jealousy but kept quiet even when Joyce pretended not to be jealous.
“Nath, don’t worry, i will go and bring Cynthia to you if that will make you happy” Joyce said staring at Nath. Then Agatha became surprise..
