The Young Wife
Being the only son in the family, I was treasured by my parents and was given everything which I needed. My 2 sisters used to complain a lot about that fact but as far as I was concerned, they had all they wanted.
It was fan being the only son and I used to spend money without been scolded for it. We were a happy family and had each others back always. Dad always encouraged us to be each other’s keeper.
When I was in grade 10, mum fell ill. She spent 2 weeks in hospital and we were told that she had malaria. I didn’t believe it but dad kept on telling me that she only had malaria.
After 2 weeks she was discharged from the hospital and came back home but there was no improvement. One day she called me and my sisters Mirriam, and Recious to her room.
