She was by the beach standing, staring at the sunset. And I thought, this is one of the most beautiful things i have ever seen.
The wind blew lightly on her dress. It was a long dress that touched the ground. She seemed like a goddess from the ancient kingdoms. Like Arthena of Greece she graced in the dimming yellowish light.
I knew I had to talk to her and quickly I walked towards her.
Before I reached her, she turned and faced me. I knew what to do. First, wear a good welcoming smile. Second, make a joke and lastly make the compliment. These I had been told by my friend back at campus during my study for a bachelor’s degree in biochemistry. And here I was seven years after.
If there is one thing my mum never told me about, was that nothing was scary like talking to a pretty girl. Not like she was there to tell me so I don’t blame her. Anyway, this happened. First, I lost my resolve to move further. Second, I became numb. I couldn’t move anything on my body. May be because I passed out for a minute or two while staring deep into her eyes. They shone with a sparkle like flash from a precious gem. That gem, definitely not on planet earth. May be gems from Mars if man ever stepped his foot there.
while I stared deep into eyes, I saw me back in my childhood days with my mum on her lap. She said, “son one day you will meet a lady on the beach. She will become a part of you for she is special and so are u. I tell this now for I may not have a chance to say this to u when u are ready. They say, the truth always finds a way. Someday u will know.”
After my confusing trip to my childhood, I opened my eyes and there she was staring back at me in my eyes. I still couldn’t move any part of me but my eyes. I looked closely at her face and it was as my mother had said. She was special. I knew this was a feeling. So, suddenly i felt my lips move and I whispered slowly and softly, what is your name? She leaned close to my ear and said, am your wife.
Abruptly screaming to my feet I asked,”am married?!” when did that happen? Do we have kids? She said, “yes, Michelle and Gabriel. See another Is coming, he will be named Raphael but don’t credit yourself honey, this is just a dream.”
And that’s how I woke up last Friday morning.
