The truth behind the scenes was that he had been in relationships before, it’s just that he didn’t want his friends to know about it. You know how boys are; they will be asking if you had sex with your dates. It’s just the way it goes. Not because he broke up with them, but because their parents had to move to other places.

Today you see her, tomorrow she’s preparing to leave you behind; it’s life. But this time he couldn’t hide their affair because Elizabeth was a big-mouthed person. She told everyone about their affair, but that didn’t bother him because the truth has its own way of coming out.

This affair was so special that they spend most of the time together. I guess they loved each other. When we mention love we start another complicated topic: what is love? This is one hell of a question with different answers, and none of them are wrong. It goes according to people’s perspective. It is intangible; it cannot be seen, and we only see its action, but how do we know if it truly is love? It is multifaceted. People says it comes before marriage and others says it comes after marriage.

The love I’m talking about is the kind of love that puts two people together and they end up sharing conjugal rights. Their love was just like a train that has gained momentum for no one to stop. It was too fast for one to stand in front of it unless he/she wanted to join his/her ancestors.

If this love was so powerful what would happen when it ended? If it was possible to end. This couple trusted each other with everything. The question is, what would they do if they had to meet obstacles? How would one react to the situation?

Life isn’t a walk in the park; sometimes we face challenges. Their love was to be tested by people who want to see their relationship come to a comma, an item that separates two things.

Joy was told that Elizabeth was cheating, he didn’t ask with who. He said nothing because he knew what kind of people they were. Instead he laughed. People can’t attack what they don’t understand. If you don’t tell people who you really are, it will be difficult for them to plan for you.

As for Elizabeth, she was told that they saw Joy with another girl, and what she did was confront him. Trust in many relationships fails because they are obsessed with trying to please the expectations of society, which leads them to lose their purpose in love.

“Hey babe, I heard that you cheating,” she said.

“And who told you that?”

“My friends did, they told me that you were with another girl this morning.”

“I can’t believe you’re taking everything they say seriously.”

“No, I’m just telling you what I heard.”

He paused and an unpleasant smile crossed his face, “believe what you want to believe, you’re on your own.”

“So they are telling the truth?”

He left her there.
