(TALES FROM BEYOND THE GRAVE)
WRITTEN BY NOBLEQUEEN NYONG
“Hi, my name is Sonia, Sonia Edward. I am from a family of four(my mom, dad, junior sister and myself). I am twenty-three years, a widow. I lost my husband on the day of our wedding, right after the reception(tear filled eyes). I’m not here to bore you about my life experiences but to tell you that this life isn’t a bed of roses and on that note, you should always be extremely careful in what you do…
My parents are rich but that’s notwithstanding because I am a woman who loves being independent and so I own my own boutique where I sell both male and female wears. I travel out of the country twice a week to buy stuffs and that makes me a staunch business woman who loves exploring. Well! That’s just a tip of an iceberg, the little I can tell you now about myself but not to worry, you will get to know me better as the story progresses…
Don’t they say, “Love is a beautiful thing but loving and being loved in return is the sweetest thing”(smiles). It is true because I experienced true love when I met Tony. He was a complete definition of MR PERFECT. Don’t quote me wrong, I’m not saying he is 100% perfect but to me, he was flawless. I had no brother but Tony became my brother, my friend, my joy, my happiness and the love of my life. I loved Tony to a fault and of course I believe he loved me too. We did virtually everything together and even though I was still in the University as at that time, we couldn’t stay a day without seeing each other.
I completed my university education when I was twenty-one because I was amongst the lucky ones who were favored to be admitted on their first Jamb sitting. I was admitted into the University of —- at the age of 18 where I studied Business administration. Right after my university education, I told my dad I wanted to start up my personal business. He agreed and decided to open up a boutique for me. At the initial stage of my business, it was tough but Tony was always there to support me, he gave me his best and left me with no reason whatsoever to complain. As time went on, the tough going became smooth and I was able to ride without worries, all thanks to my love, Tony… On the 7th of June, which was my 23rd birthday, Tony proposed to me. I wouldn’t want to bore you with the details but it was the best day of my life. Did I tell you, Actually! I’m one of those girls that dreams of the day a guy they love so much would put a ring on their finger and they would stop doing house chores, claiming that the while cooking or wash plates, the beautiful ring will get stained(laughs) and you know? That’s exactly what I did but I’m happy my mom understood and allowed me have my way though my junior sister, Sharon, complained a lot(laughs again).
The love between Tony and I was so pure, like a carefully washed glass, very transparent. We hid nothing from each other, he knew about my horrible past and I also knew about his. Three months later, our marriage was fixed but before the marriage date, I offered Tony myself(I wasn’t a virgin). We had four good rounds of sex that very day without protection. Tony said he was scared and didn’t want me to get pregnant before marriage but I told him not to worry. I don’t know why but I had this bad feeling that something will happen to Tony which will cause our separation but I took it as a mere feeling because it wasn’t that strong and convincing…
The traditional marriage had taken place two days back and the wedding/reception was to take place on a Saturday. The day started out beautiful with a warm weather. Everyone were busy preparing for the occasion. Different types of delicacies were cooked, assorted drinks were bought. Friends and well-wishers came over to help out in the preparation. The bad feeling I had of something happening to Tony became strong and while everyone were busy smiling and enjoying every moment, my only prayer was that “Nothing bad should happen to either Tony or I” but did God really answer my prayer or did he hear me at all??? Hmmm.
While inside the church, as the wedding was ongoing , Tony kept throwing glances at me and at some point, he even asked, “Baby, what’s bothering you?” but I only laughed it off and tried putting on my best smile but I knew he wasn’t satisfied. It seems the pastor could read my mind because he rushed up everything and the wedding ended quickly and we left the church to the reception arena which was in Mr. Jacobs(Tony’s Father) hotel.
At the reception, the mc tried his best in making everyone happy but I wasn’t.
“Baby, I don’t like this look of yours,” Tony had complained for the umpteenth time but again, I laughed it off. Soon, it was time for the couple to dance. While dancing, I held Tony very tight.
“Baby, you’re holding me too tight, do you want to squeeze the life out of me?” Tony said playfully in a whisper.
“I’m scared, Tony, I don’t want to loose you.”
“Why do you think you’re gonna loose me? “
“I don’t know. I have this bad feelings about you.”
“Come off it, baby. I’m here and will always be here for you, “ he smiled and kissed me while those watching applauded…
The reception lasted for about two hours which of course to me, was two boring hours full of fear of the unknown. Outside the hotel, we took several pictures before our parents told us to go home. Tony’s dad had bought us a new house and that was to be our permanent house, the house in which we were supposed to start our own family, a house we were to call our own and make a home, a house we had always dreamt of living in, a house… (sobs). Unfortunately we couldn’t get to that house, why? Because I lost Tony on our way home. Within a twinkle of an eye, Tony’s lifeless body was being rushed to the hospital where the doctor confirmed him DEAD.
NOW! How will life be like without my love, my happiness, my Joy, my Tony???. Dear God, can you please take my life as well? because I can’t imagine life without Tony Jacob.
This is where my tales begin…
