he’s a third-year scholar on the College of Ghana. Once I proposed to her, she advised me, “I simply broke up with a man who gained’t let me be. He could be violent typically so I’m withdrawing slowly from him so he doesn’t assault me. Simply give me a while to get rid of him first.” I used to be surprised. I requested, “You imply he’ll assault you since you’re breaking apart with him? Who does that? Is love by pressure? Is relationship one thing now we have to take with pressure?” She advised me, “You wouldn’t perceive however simply give me a while to disentangle myself from his internet.” I liked her. By all means, I needed her to be mine so I agreed. 

Just a few weeks later she despatched me a message, “I can’t await that foolish man to go away me alone earlier than I can love once more. It’s my life and I deserve higher–a greater man who can love me actually. Let’s do that, however I hope when push involves shove you’ll defend me. You’ll stand by me and battle him off.” I answered, “You don’t need to concern something. There are legal guidelines within the nation. He can’t harm you and he can’t do something to place you in hurt’s means. You’ve gotten me.” 

I spoke like the person he wanted me to be as a result of I used to be in love along with her, however deep down I had questions. “What if her ex had a gang who can assault me on the street?” “What if he’s extra harmful than I understand him to be? What if…?” No matter all these questions, I accepted to be in love along with her. At any time when she was with me, I requested about her ex. I wanted a progress report back to see if we had been protected. She would say one thing like, “Slowly he’s accepting the truth that he can’t cage me. He doesn’t come round as a result of I don’t see him. And he doesn’t name as he used to as a result of I don’t choose up his calls.” I used to be relieved to know that slowly I used to be turning into the one man in her life.

Her wants had been my accountability and I discharged my accountability with out fail. I purchased her books, I’ve her weekly allowance and took her locations she needed to go. I’m not wealthy. I’m solely a man in love who’s able to do all the things to carry on to the lady I like. She spent an evening with me one time and her temper was far and wide. She’s going to choose up a name and go outdoors to speak. She’ll come again trying like there’s an issue. I requested, “What’s happening? You don’t look good. What’s the issue with you?” She answered, “It’s my ex however don’t fear, I’ll deal with him.” In fact, I used to be frightened. I stored pushing her till she advised me her ex had gone to her hostel to take all the things he had ever purchased for her. The ex known as her to demand the telephone in her fingers as a result of he purchased it for her. 

I received indignant. “Why is that this man doing all the things to make your life depressing? Who’s he that has no disgrace? You stroll to a girl’s hostel when she’s not there to trigger confusion?” She answered, “In my subsequent life I’ll by no means date a scholar. See how he’s far and wide embarrassing me? Is it a sin to like somebody with all of your coronary heart?” She went again to campus the following day and didn’t come along with her telephone. “He has collected it,” she stated. I advised her to not fear as a result of I used to be going to get her a brand new one. Days later I purchased her a brand new telephone. 

Someday she advised me, “I don’t really feel protected on campus once more. Everybody on campus is aware of about my ex points and so they level at me once I’m strolling round. I feel my ex is monitoring my motion. I’m scared he may harm me someday. I need to transfer in with you. From right here to campus isn’t far. I can all the time go to campus from right here.” 

We’ve been dwelling collectively for the previous three months. Even throughout trip, she didn’t go dwelling. She stayed with me till college resumed. Residing along with her has taught me that she’s the lady I would like in my life. She retains the home collectively like an excellent spouse would do. I had a home however along with her, the home grew to become a house. By the point I come again from work, meals could be prepared. On weekends, she’ll wake me up and we’ll clear and wash collectively. Due to her, I understand how to drive banku. She’ll take me to the kitchen, maintain my hand and educate me find out how to do it. Someday she stated, “At the least once I’m gone, you possibly can cook dinner for your self.” I interjected, “Gone the place? Proper after college, I’m taking you dwelling to fulfill my household. You’ll do the identical too so the best way could be paved for us to marry when the time is true.”

I felt God has come by for me with my Eve, the one factor left for us was our backyard of Eden which we might put it up ourselves after we marry. One night, all this sense modified once I learn on her telephone that she was again collectively along with her ex and so they had been each exchanging pretty messages. “I miss you a lot.” “I miss you too. Can’t wait to see you on Monday.” I requested her, “Is it the identical particular person you had been operating from? How come you’re lacking the one who triggered you to flee from campus?” 

I wanted she lied to me. She might have stated one thing like, “Oh I’m solely entertaining him as a result of I don’t need him to be violent.” If she stated one thing like that, I might have doubted her however nonetheless really feel much less ache than what she advised me that night time. She stated, “He modified. My mom spoke to him and he turned a brand new leaf however I’m solely testing him to see if certainly he’s a modified particular person.” I used to be like, “Your mom is aware of about him? Testing him how? Testing him by being with him, kissing him, doing all of the stuff you as soon as did with him once you had been collectively? How far does the check goes?” She spoke nasally, “You gained’t perceive. We’ve come a great distance so this stuff are regular.” 

I snapped. I requested her to maneuver her issues again to campus so the 2 of them can proceed their affair. Earlier than she might say something, I began packing her issues for her to go away. She stated, “However should it come to this? You knew he was there but agreed to be with me? You realize we didn’t break up and I’m not with him absolutely now. I’m solely testing him nevertheless it’s you I actually need.” By the point she completed her assertion, her issues had been in entrance of the door. She began begging me for forgiveness. She stated she couldn’t get a hostel at this level and I understood her. We’re nonetheless right here however the belief I’ve for her is zero. I consider she nonetheless sees her ex every time she’s on campus. On Fridays, she goes to campus and by no means comes again till Saturday morning. She tells me they’re having group research however I do know she sees the man. She’s doing all the things to make amends however I don’t consider her 

She’s solely right here with me as a result of she doesn’t have a spot to remain. I do know after college, she’ll go away, by then I might need been capable of withdraw from her emotionally. I’ll really feel nothing when she lastly leaves.
