“I didn’t say I was getting tired of you”
“Then why all these?” He asked
I continued arranging my things, ignoring him.
He dragged me into his body and tried forcing a kiss on me. I felt it, he knew I love it whenever he drag and kiss me like that, especially when I’m arguing non stop, but my mind was made. Time to end my chapter with him.
So I pushed him away, warned him not to try it again.
“I told you that I’m fasting and you are trying to disrupt it for me, what’s wrong with you?”
He didn’t say a word. He just sat on the bed, carrying his head, feeling broken.
So I carried my bag and left.
While I was leaving, he tried calling me back, telling me that he was sorry.
“No Buchi, you didn’t do anything wrong. It’s just my style of breaking up with you. I love you and will continue loving you, but I certainly can’t be with you. Wishing you a beautiful life of happiness” I said in my heart, running down the stairs, while he tried to stop me.
And that was how I I broke up with him. I didn’t use words again, but my actions did.
He tried reaching me throughout the day, but I did not answer any of his calls, nor returning his text messages.
The next day he still repeated the calls, but no way. He tried every means to see me, but I made sure that never happened. And slowly, he started loosing interest.
He sent a message that read, “If a powerful soothsayer had revealed to me that, you would one day break my heart, I would never believe. I would even call him, fake. Well, such is life and it will continue moving on. I am wishing you a beautiful life. But just know that, I’m still your friend. My hand is always open whenever you need me. Love from Buchi”
That was so typical of him. That nice guy who was ready to do anything for anyone. He doesn’t hold strong attachment to material things and that was why he was so comfortable with his financial status. He only wanted to be comfortable and wouldn’t want too much stress. The little he had was enough for him.
And that’s more of the reasons I didn’t see him fit to be my husband and the father of my children. The economy is already hard enough, having a non-hard hardworking husband should be highly avoided.
So I finally revealed to him that, I was getting married through a text message.
He didn’t reply till the next day.
He wished me goodluck and happiness.
So I replied with a “thank you”
He also included that, I should have told him point and clear that I was getting married, instead of pulling those drama, that it was so childish of me.
I got relieved that he finally got the message and understood what was going on.
