How could he be this way? I thought, did he think I would just forget what he has done to me .I had no one to talk to, I just have to believe in myself and be strong, standing close to the pane of my window brought sad memories, the warm sunlight flashes it's radiance on my face giving me a warm caress, I remember vividly what happened that evening when the moon shone it's silvery light brighter and unhampered by passing clouds, a small patch of stars had gathered at the moon's feet and I imagined a kingdom sky ruled by heavenly bodies where there's no meanness, poverty, cruelty. It's a world I should have, I closed my eyes and tried dreaming of a world with happy children, bright and beautiful laughing and playing safely a world of warm cheerful homes filled with loving families with parents who are considerate and are willing to sacrifice for their children, a whole new world, I wish I could just drift away, rise slowly towards the moon and be part of that world...
I fell asleep, but awoke hours later to the sounds of my name...Aisha.. Aisha, I got up hurriedly
Amina walked into my room suspiciously..Aisha what happened, you are not ready, the guest are waiting.
I buried my face in my hands
My stomach felt funny, it's felt as if there were dozens of butterflies, in it all trying to find a way out.
Aisha you look pale, are you alright Amina asked with keen interest
Am fine I replied coldly and stood up gently to dress for the walima.
So I will be leaving finally I thought to myself, if only wishes were horses I would wish to be in a fairy tale land, posses super natural powers to effect my world and get married to my prince charming, then live happily ever after, but this is reality and a horrible night mare.
My thoughts was interrupted by the knock that came from the door, it's was the doctor.
He stepped into my room quietly, with a saddened face his eyes were cold and gloomy as though he wanted to pass a message through it. I straighten up a little waiting for the worst.
Aisha we have been working since yesterday night when the incident occurred but unfortunately....
