Story by Anny

i walked into this beautiful restaurant, I located an empty table and sat down. I look around me there were two, three and more people in each table, eating, talking and laughing together while I stayed quiet.

I felt lonely, I felt sad. A drop of tears fell from the corner of my eyes I cleaned it instantly so that people won’t notice it.

Sorry I didn’t introduce myself..

My name is Lydia James, am 28 years old.

You see that surname of mine, I don’t know if it’s truly my surname, I was only told it’s my father’s name.

I’ve never for once set eyes on my parents, I was told when I was 12 years that my father killed my mum and was sentenced to life in prison that was why I was brought to a family house where I grew up and attended my primary, secondary school and college.

According to my godmother, she said I was eight months old when my dad killed my mum I don’t know if is true or lie, I grew up believing that.

I left my godmother’s house after her death and burial, it wasn’t easy for me but I survived it.

Now I’m a graduate, you won’t believe if I tell you that I’ve worked in more than six companies in just one year, every little mistake I made, they will just sacked me .

Everywhere I go people hates me for nothing no matter how hard I try to make them happy or see me as a good person, they will always hate me.

Life is so unfair to me. I’ve heard of people being unlucky I never believe it until now. I’m just unlucky, am a bad luck.

Anywhere I enter disaster must happen there, nothing good comes out of me. Because of this people hates me and don’t want to see me anywhere close to them.

I’m always lonely, no family, no husband, no boyfriend not even a common friend that will console me. Everyday I cried and cried regretting why I came to this world, I’ve never being happy all my life from my childhood till adulthood.

Today at work, I mistakenly poured coffee on my boss, that was it. The next thing he did was to sacked me upon all my pleads they all turn deaf ears.

Nobody begs him on my behalf because they hates me and they wants me out of the company. My boss throw me out of the company, I cried in pain and frustration.

{Where will I go from here? How will I get money to pay my house rent? God, why did you bring me to this wicked world to suffer when you know very well nobody will like or accept me?} I thought in tears and agony looking up to God maybe he will answer me.

Sometimes I wondered if am the only one going through all these pains infact am the only one, I’ve never see anyone suffering or being treated like me.

The whole universe is against my existence I know that, God should just take my life so that I can rest cause I’m physically, spiritually, mentally and emotionally break down.

I wonder if I still have tears in my system.

Life is just too strong when its gets to me but soft and smooth to others. Why me?

I left the company and came to this beautiful restaurant as soon as I sat down I look at everywhere, there were a lot of people having fun with their families, boyfriends, girlfriends and best friends while I sat lonely.

I found liquids rolling down my cheeks I know what it’s, it my tears the little ones that remain in my system I guess.

I buried my head in my hands and allowed the tears to poured out freely.

I wish I’ve a sister or a friend I can go out with or lay my head on his or her shoulder at this point of my life it would’ve been good but unfortunately I’ve none. Am just alone here on earth.

“Excuse me madam”, a tiny but nice voice came.

I cleaned my tears with my white handkerchife and raised my head to behold a young beautiful and healthy girl standing before me. She’s actually a waitress.

I stared at her from head to toe, I wish I can have her as a friend or better still a sister I’d be the most happiest person on earth.

“Ma, are you ok?”, She asked

“Yes I’m”, I replied and nod, she stared at me for a while then swallowed her saliva.

“Ok, what can I offer you?”, She asked

“What do you guys have?”, I asked softly

“Everything”, she said

“Ok, give me what you think I’d like to eat and drink”, I said.

She nods and smiled at me exposing her beautiful white set of teeths before she left.

I actually did not come here to eat, I came here to think about my life but since this beautiful waitress is involved I think I’d manage to eat.

Not long she came with a tray, she had chicken burger, chips, a glass of champagne, a bottle water and drinking cup. She place it before me and I smiled.

It seems she knows what I like.

“Here we are; am sure you’d like this, oh I forgot to add maionese, let me go get it”, she said turning to leave

“No, no, don’t worry I don’t like maionese”, i Said

“What about kechtup?”, She asked

“Same thing”,

“Ok, I’ll go back to work now, if you need anything come over to that small bar over there”, she pointed at my right and I nod then she left.

I take a bite from the chicken burger and slipped from the champagne, the pain and sadness in my heart wouldn’t let me eat.

I close my eyes thinking about my life, I didn’t know how long I spent that way in tears until someone tapped me gently on my shoulder. I opened my eyes, my dress had wet with my tears.

I quickly cleaned my face with my handkerchife then look up to know who tapped me only to behold this cute guy.

He’s such a pretty angel on earth, he looks so gentle and innocent. His blonde curl hair and grey eyes makes me feel like staring at him for enternity

“Can I join you?”, He asked.
