“Her tenderness, the way her lips glues on mine, her warm embrace that can weaken even the strongest man, her smile brighter than the morning ray”
Yes, father, she is the one for me, she is the flesh of my flesh, she is the one dad ” I retorted firmly.
Okay, you have my blessings” he sputtered in disappointment.
Being the only son of my father was more of a curse than a blessing, I was lonely, locked up and guided by my father’s bodyguards.
I was clocked out of childhood fun, teenage exuberance and trendy stuffs. No, you have no reason to hate my father, I wasn’t Just his only son, I was his only child as well.
The only one he has since my mother’s painful death to breast cancer.
He has his reasons, “the world is a cruel place, I’m only doing what is in the best interest of your mother which is keeping you safe” so he says anytime I countered his decision.
My educations was all done privately, from primary to higher institutions was all at the living room. The faces I get to see daily are the ones of yesterday.
When I told my father that I want to get married he was elated and overjoyed,
” Wow, that’s a great news, when will I get to meet her ? he asked excitedly
” Soon dad, soon ” that I said as I stood up and made for door.
“Here she is father, Lisa, my lovely wife to be, look how she have grown” That I said excitedly.
Yes, she is the one for me, I named her after the teadybear you gave me on my eighteen birthday”. I said as I leaned closer towards the doll.
Hope we look good together? I queried my father, demanding a pleasant reply.
