LETTER TO MY GIRLFRIEND
(Clash of love)
A Story Written By Bright Daniel
Nath was in the state of confusion not knowing more of such conditions were still coming. The day was already getting dark at the field. People laughed and kissed at different angles while Nath glanced at Joyce’s call again but ignored it. Even Cynthia didn’t care about the caller as she waited patiently to hear Nath’s reply. After the ringing of the phone, Nath stared at her again.
“Did you just say you are pregnant?” he asked then Cynthia shook her head again positively. Nath smiled.
“Is not funny. I’m being serious here” Cynthia said.
Nath held her two hands making Cynthia’s heart beat faster, so she looked into his eyes and held his hand tightly too.
“I’m not yet fully happy” Nath began. “I will fully be happy when my dreams come to pass”
“What dream?” Cynthia’s voice was low but romantic.
“You are my dream. The dream of making you my wife, the dream of waking up each morning then see you by my side, the dream of embracing you each night before going to bed, the dream of seeing my children coming forth from you” Nath brought out the ring to Cynthia’s amazement and said, “Please, marry me, my love, and make my dreams come to pass”
It was the biggest shock Cynthia had ever experienced. She became totally speechless looking at Nath. Then glanced at the ring. “Yes, i will marry you, my love” she smiled.
Nath smiled too then gently placed the ring in her finger. “I love you so much”
“I love you too” Cynthia replied and they embraced each other. Nath gradually kissed her with a hand on her stomach which made her quit the kiss giggling.
“Why are you touching my stomach?”
“To cover the baby’s eyes not to see what we did” Nath replied while Cynthia laughed in a loud voice. “I want him to become a Rev. Father”
“You are not serious!” Cynthia opposed. “Who are you even referring as him?”
“The baby nah”
“You try! Better use the word ‘her’ because she will be like me”
“You want someone who will help you in the kitchen, abi?” they laughed again.
Few minutes later, Nath became moody remembering what he did with Joyce. He felt guilty and wanted to tell Cynthia but just couldn’t do it in order to safe the happy moment.
“Honey, are you okay?” Cynthia asked.
“I’m.. I’m fine” Nath forced out a smile.
“No, you are not. Talk to me”
“Will you follow me to Joyce’s wedding tomorrow?”
“Why not! Is that why you are sad? We shall go together”
“Thanks” Nath forcefully smiled again.
Same night, Agatha was more than happy when the news got to her just like Cynthia. While Nath laid on his bed feeling happy too but his phone rang again. He picked.
“I guess you were busy” Joyce’s voice sounded loud and clear on the phone.
“Yes, i’m sorry for that”
“Or were you with Cynthia?” Joyce asked but Nath kept quiet. “Is okay, are you coming tomorrow?”
“Thank you. Is good hearing your voice tonight”
“Yes…” both remained quiet for a long time before Joyce cut the call feeling rejected and disappointed. She laid on her bed wondering how to let Nath know about the pregnancy and what his reaction would be. “What is my fate on this earth?” she concluded bitterly.
The traditional wedding ceremony was about to take place. The family of Mr Josh were there, ready and happy. While Joyce remained sad in her room shedding tears which she tried so hard to control. Mr Williams, in other hand examined the whole thing and became consanguinity over his family.
Miracle and Mrs Williams joined Joyce in the room when it was time for her to dance out. Meanwhile Nath, Agatha and Cynthia were on their way coming. While Brano, Emma and Mento were already under the canopy likewise others.
“Please, stop cryin” Miracle told Joyce in the room.
“I’m not crying” she began to dry her tears. Even her mother felt for her but couldn’t do anything. “Let’s go, they are waiting for us” Joyce added.
“Not with this tears in your eyes my daughter” Mrs Williams began.
“Just leav me alone, Mummy!” Joyce shouted and walked out followed by them.
Outside, joyce came out with other girls shaking her body sluggishly according to the music. Her father stared at her remembering her very words the day she came back from Kindagan: YOU DON’T LOVE ME, DAD! YOU ONLY CARE ABOUT YOUR WEALTH..
Then he became sad too, just like her daughter.
However, Mento and his friends were smiling in traditional wears.
As Joyce sluggishly went to her father for the wine to be given to her according to tradition, Nath’s car drove in with Cynthia and Agatha in it. Everybody’s attention was drawn to them. Nath was shocked seeing Emma, Agatha seeing Brano and Cynthia seeing another person called Kenzy. She glanced at Nath who noticed her attitude and asked, “What’s it?”
“Um.. Nothing” Cynthia replied.
Nath also looked back to see Agatha staring at Brano, “What’s it?”
“Um.. Nothing” Agatha also replied then they began to go down from the car.
Kenzy was Cynthia’s x-boyfriend who disvirgined her..
