Short Story

SUSAN DIARY (The Beginning) By Ajayi Abiola

Written by Editor

Anchor: Hello viewers, welcome back! Over to you miss Susan, the world awaits your story!

Growing up was really fun. I had the best family ever, mom and dad were my closest pals and we all enjoyed each other’s company. The love we shared was simply out of this world! This continued until I met ‘him’. Yes! After I met ‘him’, I stopped enjoying the lovely moments with my parents and even siblings. I mean, I just wanted to be with ‘him’ at all times. I thought about him every minute, I just couldn’t get my mind off ‘him’!
‘Susan, you shouldn’t be feeling this way’, I thought! ‘It’s wrong, very wrong! Only bad girls feel this way! Stop it! Stop it now!’ Those were the words in my head. I knew I needed to stop, but I couldn’t. I couldn’t help it.

I became downcast. I kept on wondering if it’s right for a sane person, with good moral upbringing to have such unholy thoughts.

‘Haa, I can’t let a soul hear of this! I can’t tell anyone, not even mom, my confidant!’ I reasoned. Of course, I knew I needed to speak with someone.

‘But, would anyone even understand my plight? Would anyone even reason with me ? No, Susan, no one will, Just keep mute and do things your way’, I concluded.

I racked my brain and like a broken water pipe, the answer rushed through my veins! This can only be solved by the one who started it from the beginning. That single individual would be in the best position to quench the fire that was ignited…

Miss Susan: Miss Abiola, I’m thirsty, can I have a glass of water?

Anchor: of course!
