THE SORRY LETTER (EPISODE 4) STORY BY DINDY
Please do not share without talking to me personally and asking for permission, thank you for reading this story…
I know I did you wrong, I know everything was my fault, I know I was a stupid fool.
I know I was a stinky dog, I know I failed my duty in honesty, I know I broke your trust for me, I know I was a da*n he goat.
I know I behaved like a fox, I know I was the cause of your pains, l know I made the biggest mistake of my life by doing what I did.
I know I’m a stupid person, how idiotic of me to date another girl apart from you, how foolish of me to think that I won’t be caught one day.
I know I’m the worst person on plant earth, I now know how stupid I am to have ignored you, I now see that I was blinded by my own hands.
I have come to see what life feel like without you in it, I have come to realize that you’re the best thing that happened to me.
I now fully understand that, there’s no other person like you in this world, I can’t say the devil tricked me into it because I was the one that caused your pains with my behaviour.
I deserved the slap you gave me, thanks for that slap, I just wish you could slap me again and again, so that I could feel more pain.
I hope and wish you forgive me, and accepted me into your life back because life is more of nothing than something to me, without you in it.
How I wish i could turn the hands of time, to undo the worst mistake of my life I made. If you don’t forgive me, i will be hunted for life with pain.
I am really really super sorry, please forgive me for all the wrongs I did.
I can’t sleep, eat, breathe, reason well, and focus like I use to.
I am no more happy and my life is like a drainage ocean, my world is like the bitterness of a beetle’s honey. My feelings are crowded with rain clouds of regrets, silence has taken a grip of my mouth and void is how my life is.
I want you back FAITH, I need you FAITH, I really need you in my life FAITH. I can’t do anything good in my life without you, I am hopeless like a trapped lizard in the presence of a full house of snakes.
I am a light bulb with no ability to light up a dark room. If only I could see you and tell you how sorry I am.
I AM SUPER SORRY FAITH, PLEASE GIVE ME ONE MORE CHANCE TO MAKE MY WRONGS RIGHT.
After I was done typing the letter on my computer –I know you guys might think “why didn’t i just send it to her through sms or social media”, well the reason is because if I did send it through those mediums, she won’t read it because she would know it’s from me–.
I slot in a flash-drive, then copied and saved the letter inside the flash-drive. I remove the flash-drive from my desktop and went to my dad’s room to print out the letter.
I stood in front of his door and knocked twice.
Dad: “Who goes there?”, he asked.
Me: “It’s me dad”, I replied.
Dad: “Victor, what do you want to do in my room?”, he asked me without letting me in.
Me: “Daddy I want to make use of your printing machine”, I replied him still standing out side.
Mum: “Why can’t you use the one in the parlour?”, she asked.
Me: “Well mum, dad has refused to fix it for some reasons best known to him”, I replied her.
Dad: “Have you seen?, that your son has grown wings”, he said.
Mum: “Ah, You sef like wahala like your son. After all you’re his father”, she said.
Dad: “And you’re his real mother that brought him to this world”, he said to her.
Me: “Oh!, let them not start this their argument, I’ve something to do now, let them just let me in”, I said in my head.
Mum: “Eh ehn, so I’m his mother abi, then why’s it that the day he took first in his primary school days, you went around praising him like your lord and personal saviour. You told people that he is the true son of his father, so wha___”, she said but my dad cut my mum’s words short, as he knew what she was about to say.
Dad: “Don’t start oh this woman, he is my son, but he inherited his bad characters from your side of the family. Everyone in my family is gentle”, he said.
Mum: “Gentle my foot, so you’re gentle? [laughs] see this man ooo, stubborn man like you”, she said.
My legs began to pain me because I had been standing for long.
Me: “Let this people let me in na, i just want to print out this letter, o GOD! What kind of parents do I have?”, I spoke and asked myself in my head
Dad: “You’re laughing at me for saying the truth right?”, he asked my mum.
I had to chip in, to save my legs from being more hurt by standing.
Me: “Dad, mum please my legs hurt, I have being standing here for over 10mins and I just want to print out something, please can I come in please?”, I asked pleading.
Mum: “Don’t mind your dad come in son”, she said.
I opened the door and went in.
Dad: “Madam, I will fight you ooo”, said my dad jokingly to my mum.
I didn’t waste anytime in printing out the letter.
When I was done printing out the letter, I (jeje leje) stepped out before they start their argument again and I would be forced to choose sides. I went back to my room to package the letter.
Me: “I can’t use an ordinary white or brown envelop to package this letter, I need it to smell nice and look beautiful”, i said in my head.
Me: “Oh wait!, i remember, I will go to mama Gift’s shop to buy that lovely envelop I saw there a day before yesterday”, I said in my head.
I fixed the letter into my left pocket as I walked out to mama gift’s shop.
Mama Gift’s shop was right beside friend two house, but I couldn’t go to friend two house because of the guilt I felt.
Me: “Good evening”, I greeted thinking it was Gift’s mother that was in the shop, while I stood out side.
They displayed the envelops, out side the shop for people to pick what they want. I gazed at the envelops looking for the right one, to insert my letter into.
Gift: “Uncle Victor, good evening”, said Gift with a smile and her left leg on the steel gate of the shop .
Me: “Oh, it’s even you Gift”, I said in a surprise tone.
Me: “So you allowed me to greet you first, before you spoke right?”, I asked a teasing question.
Gift: “[Laughs] No oo uncle Victor, it’s not like that na”, she said laughing.
As she was talking, I saw the envelop that i saw a day before yesterday.
Me: “Ok no problem, how much is this envelop?”, I asked removing the envelop from its position and showing it to her.
“Uncle, it is just 500 naira only”, she said shining her little teeth at me.
“Ok.”, I said.
I deepened my hand into my back pocket and brought out my wallet. I opened it and brought 1000 naira note out and gave it to her.
She took it from me and went in to get my balance. I brought out the typed letter from my left pocket, then inserted it into ‘the envelop card’ –I called it ‘the envelop card’ because it looks more like a love card, then an envelop–.
It had a divine look of love (red rose) and peace (white rose), placed at the front and back of it and Its colour was gold.
While i was busy admiring the envelop card, gift brought my balance.
Me: “Mmm Gift, do you guys sell perfume?”, I asked, moving inside the shop.
Gift: “Yes we do uncle Victor”, She answered as I passed her.
“Ok, let me see the ones you have”, I said as I stood at ease, with my hand holding the envelop card like an egg.
She walked further inside, to show me the position where the perfumes were kept.
“Uncle victor, see them over there”, she said as she pointed at a wooden shelf where the perfumes were kept.
“Ah!, I don’t know any of them”, I said.
“Well uncle, I know them all and how they smell, so I can help you pick one”, she said with boldness in her tone of speech…… To be continue.
