My second Wedding Anniversary by Abayomi Afolayan
No other day can be as worse as today, from the quarrel I had with the crazy bus conductor to the scolding I got from my boss for coming late as if that isn’t enough as I got home after work I received a call from my boyfriend who has been avoiding me since the day he knew about my SS status, he called to break up with me, Shola is the fourth guy in two years that broke up with me just because of my health.
I kept asking myself how am going to pull through this one, I saw no reason to live in this worthless world so I decided to commit suicide not because I don’t know life has no duplicate but am not seeing any way out and am getting older by the day, I got the popular mixture called sniper and drank it, in few minutes everywhere was dark.
I woke up at the hospital with a lot of discomfort in my stomach. After two years of this unfortunate incident I have found myself again, I had wanted to live again after meeting this wonderful guy few months ago although I was scared to love again but I always remember mum’s word that goes thus there is a man for every woman.
I met Bolaji while working as an intern in a radio station, he seem cool and I finally gave love a chance so we started dating but I hid my genotype from him so I won’t lose this one, after dating for a couple of months I felt it was time he knew my genotype so I proposed we went for a genotype test, I knew our relationship was at risk but I just had to know his status, so he agreed and we went to get the test done, we were given a date to come back for the result.
I couldn’t go with Bolaji to the hospital on the date, at about 12pm he came to the office telling me he has seen the result and he already knows, my heartbeat increased when I heard that. All of a sudden, Bolaji went down on his knees and proposed
Here I am on our second wedding anniversary blessed with two wonderful kids.
