The day I had been waiting for finally arrived. I woke up excited and jovial ready to kick-start this day. This was amazingly seen in the breath-taking view of the sunrise that morning. The atmosphere seemed to be bubbling with joy.
As I made my way downstairs, I met everyone scuttling around doing this and that to make sure everything went well. Every now and then, I kept on gazing out into space as I tried to come to terms with what I would be at the end of this auspicious day.
All the hustle and bustle was wearing me out, so I decided to go for a little stroll down the street. As I trudged on the dewy lawns, I took a trip down memory lane, I remembered the first time we set our eyes on each other at college. How we instantly bonded like Darby and Joan. Our promises to each other that would be fulfilled that very day Mike, the apple of my eye. Most importantly that joyful day when he proposed. The six-carat diamond ring. Just looking at it I wondered how lucky I was.
However, I forgot lady luck deck’s not smile at a person. Out of the blues, my cell phone rang. Thinking it was my husband-to-be I picked it up without checking who it was.
“Hello, my dear, I said eagerly. “Hello, my name is Mobida. Would urgently like to speak to you. I was skeptical. I had no inkling of who she was or her motives. “.as saying goes, look before you leap.
“I am terribly sorry, but today is my wedding day and I can’t make it, why don’t you tell me what is up now?” I said with every intention of getting this over with.
“Okay, here it goes. I listened to her story and with every word she uttered I grew more and more
taken aback. I stood on the lawn like a lifeless zombie praying beyond hopes that it was stuff and nonsense.
When I hang up, I stood transfixed to the spot. Tears streaming down my countenance. I simply could not come to terms with the sudden twist of fate.
Signaling for a taxi I took one and drove all the way to Greenview apartments. I hobbled up the stairs, a monster red with wrath inside me yearning to be let loose.
I knocked twice at the door four and waited for a response. The door swung open. “Darling, how are you? What are you doing here? Don’t you know it’s bad luck to meet before the wedding?” Mike asked ushering me in
Sweetening the furious look on my visage, I trudged in. Once in, I took a deep breath and turned to confront him. “Mike I need you to tell me the truth. Do not make a mountain out of a molehill. Do you love me?” “Of course I do. How can you doubt that?” I made an unconvincing laugh to indicate mockery.
“Then why is it that you have also proposed to a lady called Mobida?” The sound of her name made his expression change drastically. I knew as well as he the jig was up.
He tried to beg for mercy but all this fell on deaf ears. I was tired of being played as a fool and a sock puppet. “Never again,” I bellowed as I stormed out of the room
From then on I concur with the undoubtable saying ‘love is blind’.
