She Broke My Fragile Heart
When I was in the polytechnic, I fell in love with an amazingly gifted and brilliant science student. She melted my life away each time I saw her. I was in love. She was so beautiful that I become possessed with thoughts about here, Her sweet melodious voice was amazingly nice to my ears. We exchanged numbers the very first day we met hoping for the best to come.
Strangely, her number was a fake one, she had no phone. I tried to reach her several times to no avail. Personal visits to her departments even never made it possible to meet her. Nobody seemed to know her.
But thankfully, we bumped into each other a few weeks later at the very place we met on campus. We spoke at length under the neem tree in front of the students notice board and I was scared I was going to miss her again. We shared great moments as Platonic friend for almost three months then I proposed love to her on her birthday. She said nothing, later she said I should wait for the reply.
Shockingly, she told me, her parents had warned her not to marry from my tribe and that she was not ready to disobey her parents. I felt my heart jerk in my chest. I paid her a few visits at her department, while we shared gifts and at home but she kept vanishing from my life till one day she told me.
She was not ready to be my wife in future. I was sad, sad because she I felt she was avoiding me for the simple reason that, I was not from a well to do home.
