Loving is a good, thing if we don't wake up unwanted or feeling at the wrong or right time. Everything should be done at the right, time, the story I was told at home many years ago, I was able to tell today...
Where he met her didn't matter. They were young and were made by a good God who created the whole universe and created them beautiful and handsome.
He met her, on their streets and they met because
they had to meet each other and they attended the
same school together. The parents all hated their
children mixing with each other for the parents of
Mercy were humble people but the family of Emeka
was arrogant because they had the money and they
had the wealth to buy everything that they desired
in life. There was nothing that both the families did
not do to stop the two pupils from attending
school together but kept quiet after it all.
In the school, the two friends did everything
together. They worked hard for each other and
could not be stopped. He did her assignments and
made sure that her works are well taken care of.
He even helped her whenever she was given a
problem to solve in the school.
He has no manner but he was good to Mercy.
Mercy did not know it was pity that he had for her.
No matter what his father was he was a good man.
He was not like his father. He was not bully even
when he was also intelligent and respected in the
Many a time was both parents had warn each other that their relationship would not work but they would not listen.
Yet, they were friends and they did things together,
even when their parents kept telling their children
that they were not suited for each other.
They were separated by secondary school which
they attended. Emeka was to attend the school that
was far from home and this means that they would
not be able to see each other again as they wished.
The day she turned fifteen, he came home and
invited her for his father’s birthday.
When his father and the family were not away, he
invited her not his room. He claimed, he had so
many things which they have to talk about which
was dear to his heart. So she went with him to his
room, to know what it was that he needs to tell
her. He had been her friend of many years and she
felt no harm.
She remembered the promised that she made to
her mother and father that she would never allow
anyone to see her nakedness not do she allow a
man to wake up desires before they were right.
In her disturbance she allowed him have sex with
her. Her mind was paining her as she goes home.
On reaching home, she went and watched away the
dirt of sin that she felt was hovering over her and
promised God that she would never do it again till
she was married.
The next four months it was her mother who
discovered that she was pregnant. The family of
Emeka denied the pregnancy and moved away to
another land which Mercy, nor did her mother not
know about… In joy when the child was born she
named her Mary.
Years, later after the young man had finished
school and gotten a job as a lecturer in a
university… He was well paid and he was the
inheritor of everything that his father had worked
He got married and had a wife. He did not have
children immediately for he decided to wait for his
wife to finish her youth service so that they can
start having children of their own.
Sooner than expected, the wife that he loved with
all his heart died. He cried as he has never cried.
He could not be consoled and the school had
asked him to stop teaching for months so that he
could recover. The tears and the pain was too
much that when the days of morning was over he
decided to go back to school and did put his heart
in his work, so that he can be able to forget that he
was missing his wife. The more he looked at the
picture is the more that he cried.
On his way, he met Mary. He knew he has found
the heart of his heart; he walked up to her and
introduced herself. He introduced himself to the
lady and within a short time they became good
friends that she was practically living with him. He
was happy that he can settle down again. He
always had dreams which he always kept aside as
the works of the enemies who do not want her to
get hold of the most beautiful woman in the world.
She looked like the girl he rejected many years ago
and he could see himself. He did not know what he
would do. He had no doubt that he has found the
girl who does be his wife. He has already told her
that she will be his wife and she has already
accepted. They accepted that they will see the
money of the girl who had stolen his heart s soon
as possible. Only if he has been told that the girl is
the child that he has abandoned many years ago,
he would not have gone on with the relationships.
The couple decided to go and meet their parents.
They were so happy with each other that they
seemed to have forgotten that they have to check
tears out before going to see each other’s parent.
Mary’s friend kept telling her that she should look
at the man well that she had conviction that she
has found her father but the love in Mary’s heart
will not allow her to listen to her friend. They will
take away the love of her life that was equally
spending more than enough money to make what
she is to be. She almost receives money for her
food from this man. This fiancées of hers was
more than sweet. Only God knows why the man
who loved her has to resemble her. She dares
never to question God the giver of heaven and earth
and go on and reject the man who truly loved
because he was older than her by fifteen years.
The discovery was too much for Emeka that he
fainted and died on reaching the hospital. And the
tears remained. The family of Emeka accepted the
wife that they rejected many years so that her
daughter could be their when their son had died.
