LETTER TO MY GIRLFRIEND
(Clash of love)
A Story Written By Bright Daniel
Kenzy wore a black suit instead of traditional wears believing that is an old fashion. He stretched his head when he saw Cynthia walking Simultaneously with Nath to a different canopy. Mento, Emma and Brano were tensed up seeing them too. Only Brano recognized or knew who Agatha was. He tapped Emma saying, “Who is that girl with the Mechanic?”
“That’s my Oyoyo nah. My Cynthia!” Emma exclaimed silently and angrily. His temper became hot breathing heavily.
“Do you know that i saw her with Agatha at the restaurant?”
“Who is Agatha?”
“The one i told you that is driving me crazy! And she’s that one with them” Brano pointed at Agatha. “Guy, i sense something fishy” he added.
“I’m gonna kill that guy” Emma concluded.
On the other hand, Nath glanced at mento but stared at Brano and Emma because they were together, separately from Mento.
Cynthia and Kenzy stared at each other while Agatha pretended not to see Brano.
“Those are the two guys that tortured and sent me to die in Kindagan” Nath was telling Cynthia whose mind, body and soul weren’t there as she stared at Kenzy without listening to him. “Honey?” Nath called her yet, she didn’t respond. He then looked at her and followed the direction of her eyes to Kenzy and became surprise how both were staring at each other. So he touched her saying, “Who’s that?”
Cynthia realised herself. Even Nath’s voice brought Agatha’s attention.
“Ehn.. who are you talking about?” Cynthia asked.
Nath looked at Kenzy again. “Do you know how long i have been talking to you and calling you only to find out you were busy looking at a guy?!”
“Oh, I’m so sorry” Cynthia composed herself. Nath stared at her for a moment but kept quiet.
Joyce glanced at Nath and Cynthia but didn’t look at them much as she stood before her father who already stood up with a palm wine but feeling sad. “This is my daughter” he began by swallowing a saliva. “She’s all i have and all i live for. She will take this wine according to tradition and show us her husband” he handed the wine to her.
As Joyce took the wine, tears ran down from her eyes. Some thought it was tears of joy while some, like Nath, Mr and Mrs Williams, Miracle, Mento knew why she cried. As she gently moved around lookin for her husband, Mento waved his hand at Brano to come, he came instantly.
“Are you seeing that mechanic?” Mento whispered.
“Yes! Now you can believe me, that guy is damn rich. And the other girl is the one i told you i met at the restaurant”
“What are they doing here?”
“I don’t know” Brano whispered back then departed.
However, Joyce kept walking slowly shedding tears watched by everybody especially Miracle and Nath.
Cynthia glanced at Nath seeing how he stared at her but kept quiet.
Mento smiled when Joyce headed to his direction. He adjusted his agbada and positioned very well to consume the palm wine. Joyce stopped before him, then everywhere became silent. She turned and looked at Nath who was already feeling her tears. Her hands began to vibrate as she stretched out the wine to Mento breathing heavily.
Seeing her tears, Mr Williams, her father couldn’t bear it any longer. “Stop!” he exclaimed standing up then everybody stared at him. Even Mr Josh. “My daughter is not a trade material” he began then Joyce’s tears increased. “Neither is she a selling product that can be traded. I can’t deny my daughter’s happiness and love because of material things” he stared at Joyce and continued, “I know i have never told you this, but i love you so much my daughter. You mean a lot to me. I’m sorry the wedding cannot go on against her wish”
Hearing that, Joyce threw the cup of palm wine and ran to her father. She hugged him tightly. “Thank you Daddy” she cried. “I love you too”
Meanwhile, Mr Josh had angry stood up walking towards his car. Mento was mesmerized. He glanced at Nath thinking he was the cause of everything. He stood up angrily too walking to his car. Kenzy, his COUSIN hesitated to follow him walking towards Cynthia who were standing with Nath and Agatha wondering what was going on.
However, Emma also followed Mento leaving Brano behind. Agatha turned and saw him staring at her.
Within a twinkle of an eye, as Kenzy was still going to meet Cynthia, Mento and Emma came back with guns. Everybody ran away. While Agatha hid behind Nath.
“Honey, what’s going on?” Cynthia asked standing close to Nath who held her closely.
“Don’t be scared” Nath replied. When Cynthia saw that Emma pointed his gun at Nath, she ran to him. “Please, Emma, i beg you, don’t kill him”
Joyce, at the same time ran to Mento. “Please, don’t kill him. Better take my life” she said too.
“Both of you are over reacting. Keep the gun down!” Brano exclaimed then Agatha glanced at him.
“Mento, what a hect are you doing?!” Mr Josh came out.
“Don’t come closer, dad. I’m gonna send this guy to hell!”
“No!” Joyce shouted on her knees.
Meanwhile, Brano gently moved forward…
