Dee was a wonder of a person and she still is.
A beauty to behold and everybody was her beholder.
Her smile could light up hearts and her frown; well, I’ve never seen or heard of it.
Everybody loved her.
They loved her personality.
The ones with OK or normal lives admired her, while those whose lives had been messed up adored and worshiped her.
In the public eye, “she was the person to be”.
Nobody however noticed that all was not well within her.
Nobody could see the hurt beneath the smile.
Her outward appearance might have screamed “love”, her interior didn’t.
She had been let down so many times she lost count.
She had fallen in love times without number.
But her love was never returned, not in the same way it was given.
Their love for her had been like thin lines of the softest fabric and the weight of her love had broken through it.
Beneath their love she found betrayal.
She had panicked and called out to friends; friends she trusted.
But lo, there were nowhere to be found.
They had left her to wallow in her pain.
She was so hurt, she settled for the next offer that came her way, whether she liked him or not.
Trust and friendship had failed her.
They had left her to the cold hands of betrayal and pain.
All this finally led to the birth of hate and boy, she let it grow.
It blossomed and soon became one with her: her strong tower. One she could always rely on, and trust me; she did.
So, she hated every guy, every single man.
“They are all the same”; the hate kept saying in her mind.
I met Dee some days ago.
In need of a companion, I had asked for help from a friend and she suggested Dee.
We were introduced and we got talking on BBM.
I found out she was based abroad and am right here in nigeria.
I wasn’t really interested at first and didn’t put my mind into it.
One day though, during one of our boring conversations (I made sure it was boring), she changed her display picture to a personal picture of her.
I can’t explain what happened but my mind opened like that of a wailing child exposed to his favorite cartoon.
Immediately, my wits, vocabulary and every skill I knew was increased to the highest.
Such was the approval and recognition I desired from Dee.
That was how beautiful she was.
I started seeing things I never noticed before and her intelligence and eloquence kept my eyes glued to my phone’s screen.
During one of our”now interesting” conversations, she let out her true feelings; what she had on her mind all these while.
I was shocked beyond disbelief, my mind lost somewhere between comprehension and mystification.
Slowly, the morale started to leave me.
How could a girl this charming bear so much hate for guys? That’s ME inclusive!
Quick, I rummaged my mind for options.
Calling it quit and backing out crossed my mind but something kept me there.
This was someone in need.
She needed my help desperately but couldn’t see it and I was going to make her see it.
I was gonna play the love doctor.
The only problem is HOW?
…………..To be continued.
This is a true life story. My true life story.
I really need help.
Guys, don’t leave your fellow guy hanging.
And for the females, you advice is welcome too.
