SLIPPING GRIP Chapter 3- 1

“I don’t understand anything Agyeiwaa. It’s been barely two months and you want to break up again?” Joshua yelled.

“I’m not breaking up with you. I just need a short break. I need to sort things out with him”.

“I don’t get it. Do you need to break up with me to be able to tell a guy that you don’t need him? It makes no sense!”

“He is my ex”, she shouted back. “We never broke up explicitly before he went to South Africa. I don’t want him to think I’m cheating”.

“Okay fine. You know I love you. Do as you please. I’m okay with it if that will make it easier for you to break up with him. I just don’t know why you need to though”.

“Thanks baby. Don’t worry. It is just temporary”.

He nodded and gave her a peck on the forehead. He loved her so much and he didn’t want to lose her even though she never treated him as he deserved.

Naa Dromor had two more weeks to wrap up for the quarter. She wasn’t sure if she should renew her contract with the company or not. They asked her to stay with them for another quarter but she wasn’t certain if she wanted to. Mary had asked her to come and live with her at the states or come for vacations. She didn’t know which to choose either and Mary wanted to finalize her travelling papers.

She hadn’t told Joshua about it. In fact they hadn’t spoken about anything aside work ever since he went to Kumasi with his boss for a book signing event. He hadn’t replied her last message either.

Joshua stared at the text on his phone again. It was from two days ago. He didn’t know if he should reply or not. It was a poem. The postscript was a love message. It read:

I think your prayers worked. You succeeded in making me fall in love with you. What do you say? How do you feel?
