Boy meets girl (and their thoughts)….
A reminder to all to take pride in being themselves.
This fiction is a rejoinder to the article titled “Puberty complaint” ( http://bit.ly/IcKKE2 ) about a fourteen years old boy “Emeka Ohameze” who wrote to God, complaining about developing sexual desires. This act (in his own opinion) goes against his faith in God. The story ended with a letter response from God.
