l LOST EVERYTHING
We had become so close, he told me he also had a daughter who was about my age outside the country. His wife died of cancer and truth be told, I had already started having feelings for him which I believe he long had too, odd right? But I never cared, even though he was somewhat old, age wasn’t a problem. We had already started visiting places, amusement parks, boutiques for shopping and having fun. I enjoyed his company, totally.
I did my IT in his company so I had good grades and records for it. Not too long I graduated with distinctions with a second class upper. I got employed in his company and life went well for the both of us, no stress or discomfort. He increased my salary, bought me a car and a house. My parents were feeling the comfort from his great gestures.
On a Friday morning, he invited me to his house to meet his daughter who had left country to further her studies. It took long before she came in with the driver. That 30minutes we were waiting for her arrival, was the most shocking minutes of my life. He asked me to marry him and I said yes without hesitation. He told me he had already told his daughter about me and she couldn’t wait to see me. We were both happy and celebrating with drinks when she walked in.
It was Amanda. You could imagine the long stern bold look on our faces as our eyes met. She couldn’t even greet her father, what came out from her mouth was “What are you doing here? Dad what is she doing here?” Well questions kept coming, no answers.
