“Hmmm. Leticia, are you sure about this?” “Yes, Rev Bondzie. I’ve thought about it long enough, and I know it’s what I need. Look, I’ve tried my best, but it just isn’t working. Every time I wake up in this bed, every time I sit on the porch… look, thoughts of him have just refused […]

“Thomas was a loving father. An amazing husband. Someone I believed with all my heart that I’d spend the rest of my days with. From the day he asked me to be his wife, I was convinced beyond a shadow of a doubt that this was the man I’d grow grey hairs with, and it […]

It was 7:50 am on a Wednesday morning. And it was a knock on the door that woke Leticia up. Stirring as she lifted herself to sit up on the bed, she looked at the two little human beings on each side of her. Denise to the left, Samuel to the right. They were still […]

Seated on the balcony, Leticia sat in her usual chair, clad in black, her facial expression void of any emotion.
