“Relax Fred,you have no reason to keep on stressing on a lady who never seemed to love you…” Ken consolled him.
“Its two weeks down the line, no call! No text! I dont know where my wife is and you telling me to relax? Are you out of your senses?” Fred fummed as rounds of saliva flew out of his mouth. He was a disturbed guy at the moment.Not knowing what to do.
“Please just get out! I want to be alone..” He commanded.Ken looked at him in disarray as he walked out of the room without uttering anything.
Fred retracted back on his couch as he remembered how things escalated that fateful day in church.
As it was,Fred and everyone else at the church were waiting patiently for the bride to arrive. They were full of joy and ready to witness a life long bond formation.
As it happens in most weddings, many people arrive at the venue to see the bride.However ,this did not live upto their expectations when Ken arrived at the church looking distressed himself.
The frustrated face he posted made people to panic and in particular was Fredd who almost fell on seeing Ken was alone.
Ken moved closer to Fred and whispered,
“The Bride is nowhere to be seen….”
This seemed untrue and unrealistic.Fred gazed in air looking totally confused. The crowd was yearning to get the 411 that had just been delivered!
It struck Fred plainly and painfully in the heart! Belinder was his everything.His heart,his source of life.
The beautiful lady Fred had laid eyes on and loved her from the bottom of his heart was no where to be seen.
The crowd was left to speculate what might have befolded the bride.
As this events crossed his minds,tears rolled down his chic like a small kid.
It was evident,the desappearing of Belinder had shook the deepest part of his heart. He was a man. It was hard for a man to cry of love but for him the feeling was overwhelming.
“Fred,stop crying….all will be well my son”his mum soothed as she sat next to him.
Fred couldn’t talk,he wiped the tears and bit his lower lip in regret and pain.
“My son,there is something wrong somewhere….i guess we need to seek other alternatives”His mum said with concern.
“What! Mum you want me to go to a witchdoctor? How? No!”Fred protested.
“I am your mother. Do you know i was barren.Untill i went to this great doctor in the village is when i conceived you…so my son…” Fred’s mum voiced confidently and this made Fred to agree on her idea.
Early the following day,they whisked out of town without the knowledge of Fredd’s dad and drove to the village hundreds of kilometres.
The journey to the village was long and tiring but they were lucky to arrive there before susnset.
They moved direct to the far edge of the dark forest where the great seer lived in solitary.
As soon as they entered the dimly lit dungeon than the witchdoctor started the enchantation that he himself never understood.
“The great one of greats i have come….my son…my son” Fred’s mum voiced pointing at her son.
“Talk! Woman talk!” The great seer yelled,his eyes popping out scaring.
“My son cant get married,everytime he meets a girl and have sex with the girl the girl dies! Or if they plan to marry the girl dessapears mysteriously…please help my son” She voiced with a fainting tone.
The witch doctor stared up for a while peharps talking to the gods and shouted,
“Your son is cursed! Cursed to never marry! He will love,spend with women but no woman will agree to marry him…cursed!”
The chilling and terrifying message made Fred to cry!He was a very emotional guy.
He remembered,one day Belinda asked him why he wasnt married.
This was because of Faith her Ex lover who died after they had sex. It pained him.
“Help us!” His mum sounded.
And for a while the great seer was silent before he casted the doctrine to be followed.
