THE PLACE OF LOVE IN MY HEART
My name is Blessing and I have been blessing those that come my way in my own little way.
There was this guy that bought my heart with love, he loved me so much that all I saw every time was him.
I started planning my life, especially marriage with him when he told me he would make me the mother of his unborn kids.
Life was so sweet and glittering because his love swept my heart off guard.
I gave him my heart, my totality and my life.
Dominion dominated my world because he was just too perfect for me. As my dream and future partner, I began to build him up because I wouldn’t want to have a man who aren’t financially buoyant as a husband while I have all it takes to build him. I spent alot on him, I bought him clothes to look nice, gave him enough money and even cooked for him so he would be healthy for me. I even paid his fees and other little things I can’t even remember but something happened. When this Bastard finished serving our father land, he gave Nofisat, my Muslim friend his wedding invitation with my best friend Damilola. I couldn’t believe it. Oh God! I was blank, lost in life and out of touch with reality. Nofisat consoled me the little she could and off we went to Lagos to know what was happening.
We got there and I wished I wasn’t born, I wished the word “love” never existed, I wished he would have died of kidney failure back then because I gave him one of my kidneys so he could live.
“Bro Dominion, why did you do this to Blessing, what went wrong?” with the way Nofisat sounded, she was just trying to maintain her cool. I was just sobbing, waiting to hear from the Bastard.
“You see, life is sometime like this and I am very sorry it’s coming this way. Your friend nags alot and that pisses me off. She feels she’s not secured. She always wants to know about my movement all the time. It is dating we are dating na, not CCTV mintor.” my eyes were blurry because of tears.
“She don’t even want me to mingle with other girls, only to be caged in her own world.
I must give account of how I spend my day, who I meet, where and when. Though she made life easy for me but that shouldn’t make me her slave or prisoner. If I don’t call for a day, I have offended her and many childish attitudes I have told her to either stop it minimize”
I was burning within and felt like killing him right away but somehow, he was right.
“Hmm, but you shouldn’t have done this to him, you know he loves you very much and have dedicated almost everything she has to you.” Nofisat managed to find her voice.
“You see, I have tried to manage and curb her excesses but it didn’t work. I even told her we can’t be like this all the time but all she did was shun me off, telling me I have longer throat and not contented with what I have. Nofisaf, if you can still remember the day she slapped me in public all because I hugged and pecked my own blood sister, you knew how…”
“Please my love, don’t do this to me. You know I have dedicated my life to you, please I love you so much and I will amend all the things you don’t like about me, please!” I found myself apologising to a man I planned to kill.
“Seriously, I don’t have anything against you. In fact, you made me who I am today. You taught my tolerance because you said there is nothing like sex till our wedding day, I endured till I met Damilola. You taught me many things which I am now enjoying. I didn’t cheat on you when we were dating and I can’t cheat or betray Damilola now because our marriage is at the corner. Talk to your friend Nofisaf, tell her to change because Moses, my friend loves her. If she changes, who knows what tomorrow holds.”
Dominion left us and Nofisat was unable to say a thing because he was right. I was selfish and over protective. But if you were in my shoe, you would do more because the love I have for him is like river Mississippi that has no end. Tell me, what should I do because I am planning to ruin their wedding”
Till I cross your path again-
I hang my pen 🖋
