You know it’s when you’re served with the same cup with which you served others, that you argue that “life is not fair”. Ofcourse there was no such thing as Stephanie’s mum inviting me over for Christmas, and even if she did, there’s no way I was going to spend Christmas in my ex’s house; not when I’m in a growing relationship.
You don’t test the depth of a river with both feet…African proverb
If this string was what I needed to pull for my lady to see reasons with me, then it was worth it. I related with her like nothing happened, still called her like I would on a normal day, and acted like I was going to make my journey on Christmas eve. In as much as I was weary of the pretence, I needed to keep it up so as to achieve my aim.
Later that evening, hanty called me and was sounding so humble and remorseful.
Babe! How are you? I really want to talk to you about something.
In as much as I want to pretend like all is well, I can’t help but sense the negative vibes exuding from all our interactions.
Amidst all of it, I have come to realize that the decision to attempt making that journey was not only insensitive and immature of me, but also a question on my loyalty. I figured that I would have reacted exactly the same way you did, if not more, if the table was turned.
I just want to let you know that I’m sorry for ever contemplating such, and for giving you attitude when you expressed your displeasure at the idea. My loyalty to you shouldn’t be in doubt because of this, as I promise it won’t happen again.
Please find a space in your large heart to forgive me, and don’t you forget that I LOVE YOU and always will.
Now while she was speaking, I was just mute, listening to her ever beautiful voice. I won’t even lie, I had goosebumps when she spoke. I could sense the sincerity with which she spoke; she was truly sorry and I could feel it. For the first time since forever, my lady said the words… 🤭🤭🤭 Nothing felt better than hearing her sound the way she did.
“I love you too and I hold nothing against you babe. I’m happy you came to the realization that you messed up and are ready to make amends. We’d be fine eventually (we go De alright Las las)
For me, I think this is the basis of a relationship; the ability to be able to resolve your issues with minimal collateral damage. Now this is the woman I fell in love with; for a moment all her previous troubles were erased by this singular phone call.
“Babe, are you free tomorrow? I’d love us to go see a movie at the cinema and also have lunch or dinner together, whichever is convenient for you” I said. “Are you no longer going to Stephanie’s?” she asked. “Oh that! There was nothing of such; was just pulling your legs” I answered. “Awwwwwwn😍 Naughty you! You got me there… I love you jare! Let’s do lunch dear”.
And so we lived happily ever after… But for how long? 😊😊
