SOULMATE Episode 14
When we love, we always strive to become better than we are. When we strive to become better than we are, everything around us becomes better too. I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge. That myth is more potent than history. That dreams are more powerful than facts. That hope always triumphs over experience. That laughter is the only cure for grief. And I believe that love is stronger than death.
Philip denied signing the divorce papers ,the judge tried talking to him but he refused ..

I opened I looked so pretty. .
Philip would have loved this ” I said

she couldn’t stop starring at me

I wish I was a dude ,I could have scrolled you all night long ” she said

we got to the party ,it was a house party in chelstone ..
happy birthday ” I said
thank you Darling ,please feel comfortable ” the birthday said
thank you so much ” I said
I sat at the corner alone since I had no idea who these people were ..
I was given a glass of wine ,didn’t even know the name of the wine ,I just kept on drinking .
a white man came to where I was ..
why are you isolating yourself ,the party is that side ” he said
how is that your business ” I asked
ouchi,am Miguel ” he said

I didn’t catch your name ” he said
I didn’t throw it at you ” she said
sassy I like ” he said

I want to play with you ” he said
play alone ” i said getting up
I walked to chama ,I just wanted to be home sleeping ,I wasn’t ready to be going out .
am going ” I whispered in her ear
where ” she asked
home ” I said
we just got here ” she said
chama this is your world not mine ” I said
okay I will find you ” she said giving me the house keys.
anybody who has gone through a divorce would understand what I was going through..somebody you thought you would spend the rest of your life with ,you end up being divorced ..
I cried myself to sleep ,chama didn’t come home that night I just slept alone ..
I remembered the promises he made to me ,I didn’t know if I will ever love again cause love hurts big time .
you are a talented young lady ,I think its high time I give you want you deserve” my boss said
I just starred at her cause I didn’t know what she was talking about
Jennifer am 76 years old and I think its high time I retire ” she said
retire who will take over you company ” I asked
you will, my kids are all boys and moreover they don’t have interest in my fashion business ” she said
madam this is a big responsible ” I said
I started at 20years on my own ,” she said
madam I don’t have money to buy this company ” I said
who said am selling it ,am giving it to you ” she said
oyah madam ,” I cried
not tears of sadness but tears of joy ,it’s mine but ,I will inform everyone that from now on you are the boss ” she said
21years I will be somebody’s boss God what have I done to deserve this ” I said to myself
I didn’t want to disrespect the older ones I found there ,I was the brains behind the design and I made all those older people I found at the company like bosses ..
hey Jenny ” Jessy said
hey ” I said
she joined me at the kitchen table..
you are a designer ” she asked
that’s beautiful ,I want you to design something for me ” she said
really ,I would love that ” I said with a smile
so she showed me what she wanted ,she got my line for easy communication ..
my cousin’s friend liked you ” she said
which one ” I asked focusing on the drawings
the white guy ” she said
oh that annoying guy ” I said
he is not annoying ” she said
he was to me ” I said
look he is a great person “she said
I think you have to wait for chama from.here ,am going to take a nap ” I said
am sorry if what I said offered you ” she said
it’s fine ” I said
I took a long nap and was woken up by loud music ..
I got out of bed slowly and found the two of them dancing ..I just took a glass of water and went back to the drawings ..
my phone rung
hello ” I said
hey my sassy mama ” he said
who is this ” I asked
the guy you left sitting alone at the party ” he said
look I have better things to do than talk to stranded boys like you ” I said
and I hung up
I didn’t feel like I w�s ready to entertain any man.
