Ada held my hand as we walked through the field,
everywhere was so green, the atmosphere so serene
and Romance seemed to be in the air, everywhere
seemed to have been prepared for us and it was
Ada looked exceptionally beautiful and happy. Each
time i looked at her, i wished i was grown enough to
“Do you remember how we met?” she asked me
“I could forget where i was born but not that”
She smiled and squeezed my hand.
“Meeting you was the second best thing to ever
happen to me Quinn”
“What was the first? “
“You loving me, that was the first and best”
“You are dark, you can’t blush”
We both laughed, for some reasons, i couldn’t say
much to her, she did all the talking and i didn’t know
“Quinn, i will always love you, i hope you know that
and i want you to know that you can live without me,
you can move on, you have a life to live ahead of you”
we were facing each other by this time and holding
our two hands.
“You gave me life a meaning, my heart isn’t in my
chest anymore, its you that’s there”.
I held her face in my hands and wiped the tears that
had appeared there. She held my hand up to her face
“I hate to see you sad whenever you think of me, just
remember the good memories we made, the lovely
times we had and keep that to your heart, you are the
one beating inside my chest and i love you. Quincy
live for the two of us, its so cold out here without you
but i will survive “.
The tears came to my eyes as she talked, i closed my
eyes and kissed her, her lips tasted salty, the tears
were in them but i didn’t care. I opened my eyes and
only the empty air was there and i was alone, the
tears still in my eyes.
I didn’t even know how i was able to get through that
phase, i should have died from shock and pain but i
didn’t, i can’t deny that i once out of many times
contemplated suicide, that also wasn’t easy, i had
been selfish enough and i needed to think of other
people for once, to think of my family who loved me
and had stood by me each time and never for once
complained of my excesses.
Life moved on, slowly, my family as usual was very
supportive, princess was always there to snap me out
of my misery, my two sisters were sweethearts and
my father, through all those moments never for once
complained, he knew i was young, naive and in love.
My mom, well, she was just being my mom, it was her
duty to care for me and she never lagged. One person
that always seemed to be there whenever i needed
someone didn’t disappoint either, Janet, she stuck
around for me, she was supposed to be gone but she
stayed, yet the void was still in my heart but i did
My waec exam came and passed, i wasn’t able to
write it. My father thought i needed a change of
environment, i needed to get away from all that
sorrowful setting. I was going to Join my uncle in the
United States but I have to recover first.
Ada may be gone but she was always there with me,
every night in my dreams….
