I looked forward to the end of my vacation, not because I was tired of the cold weather, but because my heart had suddenly found a place it wants to rest, and I needed to get back quickly and grabbed the Perfect man that I have been yearning for.

When I got to the airport on arrival to Nigeria, he was there to welcome me. Drove me down to my apartment. I was enjoying every bit of the moment since the day we first met that I forgot this man was a total stranger.
I gave him direction, and he got me home safely.

Exactly two months after we first met, he asked me to be his woman. I saw stars in my eyes. I told him, oh yes, your actions said it all honey. I knew I became your woman that day you nearly ate my lips at the Airport in the UK.

6 months into our relationship, he popped the big question, in a most romantic way. There was no way I could say NO to this perfect love of my life, the man who came into my life so suddenly like a thief in the night and became a part of me. I love him, so, I gave him the YES on the spot.
We decided that it was time to officially let our parents know. He came with his family and met mine.

And it was just few weeks away from our wedding day when the unimaginable happened…. I suddenly lost my sight. I became blind.
It was the darkest time of my life because I didn’t understand how or why I suddenly went blind.
My parents took me to the best optician and I was told it was an infection and I needed surgery.
The doctor assured us that I will get back my sight after the surgery.
And I was so hopeful.

Gibert and I had to postpone our wedding till further notice and in few days I undergo the surgery. Some weeks later, my hope of ever regaining my sight was shattered when the doctor removed the bandages and I discovered that I was still blind.
I was so devastated but Gibert hugged me and kissed me.
He consoled me and he assured me of his undying love.

From that day, I began to learn how to cope with my disability.
My parents and my siblings were so supportive and Gibert was my strength and my backbone and I was looking further to the day we will finally be married.
I was eagerly waiting for that day as days gradually turned into weeks and weeks to months and two years went bye and Gibert was not saying anything about our postponed wedding.

Then One day, Gilbert told me some thing that broke my heart into tiny pieces.
“Jessica, you know how much we loved each other, our love was love at first sight but life happened, I really wanted to marry you but out of the blue, you went blind, I Don’t think I can go on with our relationship, I really want to move on with my life but without you. Please I hope you understand me” Gilbert explained while I listened in pain and in tears.
I couldn’t utter a word and Gilbert didn’t say anything to console me, instead he left quietly leaving me with my pain and sorrow.

I wept so bitterly when he left and I kept chanting “Why me ? What have I done to deserve this rejection from the man,I have ever loved”
It was so hard for me to recover from the shock and pain of losing Gilbert because I had thought he was the right man for me.

Days turned in to weeks and weeks into months and I have finally accepted my fate.
My parents were so supportive, they bought new gadgets that will help me cope with my disability.
Ever since I became blind, they were always available for me.
They even shift their base to Lagos so they could be so close to me.

One-day out of the blue, I got a phone call and I was so shocked when the caller was no one but Emeka, it has been over two years since we spoke and he sounded so happy to hear from me. Ever since I lost my sight, my hearing ability improved because I could sense strong emotions even from a mile away.

I could sense the excitement in Emeka’s voice when we spoke and that got me excited too.
When I asked of his girlfriend Chizoba, he told me Chizoba was never his girlfriend.
“That girl dey my neck, I no know whether love na by force, I know na because of her, you no dey pick my call for two years but it’s okay, na my fault, jessica, I dey very happy as you pick my call today” Emeka replied and I smiled at his igbo accent.

We spoke for a while and then hanged up and ever since then Emeka will call me up at any time and we will talk for long.
I haven’t told him that I was blind but I wondered if he will stop communicating with me if I he learns about my condition.
Because slowly he became the only friend I had.
All my friends, especially Linda and Mirabel were so busy with their life and career that sometimes its seems like they have forgotten about me.

To Be Continued…. . . .
