Something was missing,something was wrong,am going crazy day after day,night after night,i was becoming sick even in good health,i laugh when am with the family but
once am into sleep i cry my bulbs out,they were turning red each day and night,i dont know who to tell what’s wrong with me or what to do,when am in my room alone all i do is drink malt,lie on my bed,talk to myself and smile or laugh like a madman once i imagine that awesome moment,you know the moment i mean! Moments yet to come,my step mom is beginning to get bothered even my dad and step siblings but i cant tell anyone what my
pains are,at a time my dad began to think he had offended me by getting another wife and this was really affecting him but that’s not truth,am even happy for him that he married again but my problem lies with my step
brother Isaac (Observer) i dont know whether he
would get offended if i let out what’s bothering me.i just have to move on but have tried but it didn’t work out and now i eat less and sleep less infact i forget myself
always,oooo God stop asking me what is the cause,stop please stop,if i tell you the cause you would call me a madman,a greedy guy or a fool but i cant help it i cant,how can i when i dont even have control over it but a man must be a man no matter what,a man must be a man even in death the only place i know a man can never be a man is in hell o,you must cry and shout like a woman o.
Step Mum:my son am sorry it wasn’t my fault and i never meant to make you a shadow of yourself,you are a nice man,you helped me before and even connected me to your father,not only that,you also took my son as your own self,seeing you sad makes me cry,i want us to be happy like before(she was crying) believe me i see you as
my flesh.now i have filed for a divorce,i want
to divorce your father and go away with my son Isaac so you can stop being sad,believe me when i say am truly sorry and i told your father from the on set not to marry me(she kept sobbing,then put her hands on my shoulders)it shall be well with you my son,you shall be
greater than your father and your name would be
heard all over the world
Me: (i wanted to say something but i couldn’t,only tears came out of my eyes,i was too lost,so mad,foolish,stupid and weak,i am a confused healthy but sick man,i just
watched her live my room sobbing and i was crying myself,the man in me was gone and only one thing can take the man in a man and that thing is….i tried to call
out to her but only air came off,her words touched me but she isn’t the reason for my pain)…i the great Daniel,son of kybee,the only guy that formed a one man squad had
suddenly become a weakling, my room door burst open,i looked up and saw my little angel,my step sister,abeg dont ask me her age,i have lost count of her age in this my
present condition but she is now a teenager,i love her so much because she is too smart and out spoken.
