My little Damsel. She never ends a call without saying”I love you”.
Oh! My pretty little damsel whose words still linger on my mind. I always longed for her call and could give up anything to listen to her voice as her last words could calm a troubled heart. She was just seventeen when she captured my heart with those amazing words…
It took me a while to communicate with my damsel as I was busy with work but I wondered why she did not call to check up on me as usual. So I thought it wise to call her, what a relief when I heard her voice…. I really did miss her. It was time to end the call and I anticipated the usual” I love you” but to my greatest surprise I did not get that so I demanded to know what was wrong with my little damsel,but she couldn’t talk much. I ended the call knowing she was not strong but I ended the call with ” I love you” , still no response from her.
I felt really bad after talking to her for the first time as I did not get the usual words and as a matter of fact,that night was the longest.
At the dawn of a new day,I picked up my phone to check up on her but I heard a strange voice.
“oh Aunty Bella, your little damsel passed on at the early hour’s of today…2:30 a:m precisely, we lost her to typhoid and malaria. We did our best but all to no avail.
