    To be honest, the last Kito Diaries stories that touched my heart was Khaleesi’s Top Security.
    This one drew a tear or two from me. And I’m just the one reading it. So I can imagine the pain of being the one who actually had to go through the pain of losing the one you love.
    Max, if Randy hasn’t come back to you, but he’s meant to be yours, I do so hope serendipity will work in your case.
    Someone here on KD taught me to have faith in serendipity.

    Hmmmm!

    This was sweet and depressing! There are lessons to be learnt;

    1. Love may not be found on jack’d, Grindr, hornet, manjam, etc. I think it’s easier to fall in love with people you meet organically.

    2. Yes I believe in serendipity! Some day some place, you might be sitting in a coffee shop in Venice trying to get over a friday hangover and you will spot Randy eating at a table alone.

      @Dennis, Grindr is useless… Real old fashion meeting is the best..
      Serendipity huh, maybe… Gotta think about that..

        Pls dear Max,.. I shared some tears too.. it was a loving story.. but I think u too hard on Dapo.. meanwhile Osun and Lagos aint far. Weekend visits and etc. I was the camp Medical Director, so I know what it means to be used and led on. I am a foreign graduate and own a car in the camp, had personal security detail and very close to the state coordinator. So definitely I was used a lot. Immediately after camp, many of them deleted my pins some were courteous to tell me na cus, I seem gay lol.. anyways fuck em..my dear, look for randy. Invite him to lagos, always visit him too. Long distance relationship works too.. hugs and kisses my dear

        Khaleesi, go and look for that movie: “Serendipity” and you’ll need no further enlightenment.

    This suspense filled story is a true representation of the story of the modern man. Full of false assumptions, fulfillments and disappointments.

      Disappointments and falseness is the true representation of a modern man? As in, perennial happiness is not an option? Talk about pessimism.
      Not like I think life is rosy. But I don’t think its out of place to picture an instance when one leads a perpetually fulfilled life. With the teensiest occasional bump in the road. I’m utopian like that.

        Max is in love with a man he knee for a week. That’s probably just lust. Anyway, Mr. P. Panther, what’s the email address for submissions?

    what a nice story, quite sad.. Is love really all that matters? If the most important thing in the world is love, why didn’t u just hold on to it and let go of some stupid letter of redeployment? #painedmuch

        Why I asked was, you were going off about why Max didn’t fuck off his redeployment. I believe the story addressed that issue.

    I cried almost all through the story. All I could think of was, what if that was me? Could I have survived such? But as my Dad always says “Time heals EVERYTHING”. Be strong Max. You’ll find another Randy again.

    One thing I’ve learnt in life is that most times, it is better to take things as they come. When you find yourself in a particular situation, most times it is better to just allow the situation to play itself out. That you can change a situation doesn’t mean you should try to (except when it’s a matter of life and death)

    So many experiences like this have taught me that sometimes it’s better to kick back and watch life play itself out.

    Sorry, Max honey. I feel your pain. You may most likely find Randy again. But if you don’t, come find me and I’ll give you a “heart-lift” 😉

    Awwwww Max! I really hope you and Randy still keep in touch. Every run in with love is a blessing, see it that way and you won’t feel bad.

    I hope you’ve been able to meet good guys since then.

    I wonder what the fuss is all about,Osun is not far from Lagos.That’s what weekends are meant for,u visit friday afternoon/evening,get back sunday evening.And then there’s the internet n all things that make keeping contact easy.
    Why let go of a beautiful thing cos of such pesky thing as a small distance.Ere any of u mouths off,I’m kinda in same boat as Max.My Significant Other is out there in the Mid-West n I’m here in Lag.I visit when it’s convenient

    This story is heart wrenching on so many levels. I can totally relate. Distance cost me and the love of my life our relationship. I am going to have to pen it sometime.
    @ Pinky, i have got a story for you.
