    Very beautiful story. Drew a tear from me. Look, if there’s something you do that you suspect you will regret, if there’s a chance for making amends, seize that chance, because contrary to popular belief, we don’t have all the time in the world.

    I’m almost tempted to say this woman doesn’t deserve a do-over. EIGHT Years! EIGHT frigging years! You turned your back on your child for eight years! You deserve to die with the burden of that guilt.

    On a rainy Monday morning, there’s heavy traffic, already very late for work and a reprimand is most likely to happen.

    Thank you.

    Nice story, but too long. Any person with a regular job won’t be able to finish this.

    This story brought out that maternal instinct in me, I shed tears reading through. We will learn from it.

    This is amazing!

    Now his death has brought about reunion; Mtcheww… Why not when his living? They had better take that beautiful girl back to Sean…
    .
    Its just very hard to accept a son who’s gay; if we punish mothers , at a time we let go… A friend asked me the other day if I would like to have a gay son and my answer was No! it was later that I know I was scared how he would survive.
    .
    I once believed I was cursed at some point of me realising am gay, but it took some time to get over it.

    @ Indigene I feel the same way too. my mum saw this piece when I wrote it. she cried and simply said “nice one, I can relate”. I am sure as hell she knows I’m gay but she feels her not talking about it will make it untrue.

    This is story telling at its best. Very moving and engaging. I could feel all the emotions described as I read and I just managed to hold back the tears.

    Reading this brought to my mind the disservice Nigeria has done to itself by sidelining an obviously talented segment of its population. Almost everyday here we are treated to stories worthy of critical acclaim.

    I just imagine the writers, lyricists, comedians, poets, fashionistas that could have enriched the lives of many and possibly put Nigeria on the map in the arts world, had we been allowed to flourish.

    Thanks peaches for this wonderful tale and Thanks Pinky for creating this amazing platform for sharing.
    It shall be well with us all.
