One day, Nonso came to Ada’s house to see her. He told her that he was going for a very important business trip and would be back in two days.
When the news got to Ada, she was devastated. How could this happen? All the wedding plans had been made – they were just counting down to the ceremony. Ada was in shock. She locked herself up in her room and wept inconsolably. Within a few days, Ada was an emotional wreck. Her parents were alarmed. All their entreaties to her fell on deaf ears.
This went on for three long months! Then one day, Ada came to herself: “How long will I continue like this? Nonso my love is dead, but I know he would want me to go on with my life.” And that morning, for the first time in three months, Ada took a refreshing bath, put on her best dress and went out to visit friends. In no time, Ada’s life took a new turn. She began to socialize, and one short year later, she met Arinze, a young executive of a major corporation, and they were married six months later.
MORAL: Life is not always fair. We may not be able to control all the events of our lives but within us is what it takes to overcome every challenge – if we don’t quit.
