What he asked me to do after I followed him to his village
It’s about time I shared this story.
Desperation is one thing that makes women do unspeakable things.
The funny part is that, I saw the signs, even the ones that were strong enough to make me back out, but out of desperation, I continued forcing myself, with the believe that, he will change. And that, it was too early to conclude the type of person he was.
I met Makuo last year November. It was at my friend’s shop in Onitsha. He came there to buy airtime and it happened that, his line was having some issues. So, after I helped him on how to sort it out, we got along and he requested to have my number, which I gave to him. He also gave me his.
And finally, he left, promising to call me.
He looked nice and dressed casual. I asked my friend, she said, she doesn’t know him, that she hasn’t seen him in the area before.
So I said ok and started imagining how life would be with him, if he was finally going to be the man for me.
I was 34 years then, but already feeling desperate that time was already passing me buy.
And coupled with my younger sister, who was to be getting married that December.
I found my time passing and the shame of having my younger sister getting married before me was taking a strong toll on me. I was feeling anxious and desperate.
After I left my friends shop, returning to my house, one particular mad woman who usually strolled my street and who had never, for once gotten aggressive with anyone gave me a chase of my life.
I first noticed her, giving me a look that appeared scary. I got uncomfortable wondering why she was looking at me that way. The next thing, she picked a long stick and started pursuing me to flog me. And I took to my heels. I was lucky enough to evade her that day.
I don’t know what her problem was. If only I had the ability to understand spiritual stuff, I would have known she meant well and was trying to warn me.
After I reached my house, I continued panting, wondering what was wrong with her.
I started cussing the government for not doing their jobs. Mad people are not supposed to be allowed to be roaming the street freely, before they endanger the lifes of innocent people walking on the road.
About 6 in the evening, I was already forgetting the incident that happened in the afternoon and how I picked the race of my life, evading an angry mad woman.
I was waiting for Makuo to call me.
8pm, still no call from him. 10 in the night, still no call.
And 11 pm again, nothing. And I got so anxious on why he hasn’t called. I got tempted to call him, instead…But I decided to wait …
I never knew, he too was waiting for me to call, to know the level of my desperation. So I decided to sleep, keeping my phone very close to me, incase he calls…….. do not stop reading… continue reading from below
