Heartbroken

2

The sound of Water from the shower splashing on the ground woke me up.

I had slept off accidentally leaving the shower running.

The time was just 4:00 am.

Through the windows I could see it was still dark outside.

I got up from the bed and walked to the closet.

From the closet, I picked up a pair of shorts. And then I walked topless into the bathroom to turn the shower off.

I kicked open the door connecting my bedroom to the sitting room. I turned on the light switch and walked through the sitting room into the kitchen.

There was an open packet of chocolate cookies on the kitchen counter which I carried along with a drink from the fridge.

Lazily I walked into the sitting room and turned on the television. The music channel came on immediately, and a slow love pop song which was one of chuks favorite was playing.

“What is the meaning of this! ” I said to myself.

I quickly changed the station to prevent the thoughts of the guy who had hurt me from entering my mind.

But I couldn’t help it.

Just last month he had spent a night at my place, and it was on this same sofa and we held each other as we watched a movie.

We kissed passionately throughout that when it ended, I found it difficult to recall the name of the movie.

I used to think Chuks was perfect person for me. We were supposed to get married and start a family together. so I thought.

Anita just had to come along and ruin everything.

It wouldn’t be a bad Idea to catch her at her place of work and disgrace the boyfriend snatcher. Sadly, I lacked the confidence to do so.

The alarm clock went off. I had to start getting ready for work.

I Pulled down the short and tossed it across the room, then I stepped into the shower hoping that I had enough water left to take a bath.

It took me some time to decide what I wanted to wear, switching from one outfit to another. I had to forfeit getting my makeup done.

By the time I was done, it was 7 am. I was already running late. I grabbed my handbag and a pair of high heels.

The gate-man was still washing my car.

Immediately he saw me, he began his usual plea, “sorry madam,” that always annoyed me.

I waited a few minutes for him to finish. Then he ran to open the gate.

I got into my car and drove off.
