Key To My Heart



♣ ♥ ♣ 

PATRICIA, the young man was talking to me, and it wasn’t an event to eavesdrop on.” Nnadim chided. But there was apprehension beneath the reproving tone as he stared at his granddaughter’s resolute stance.

“I wasn’t going to eavesdrop. Came in for something and was going to ask to bring you people drinks when I heard him.” Patti switched her gaze to Isidore. “Good thing I did too, for I will now save you both presuming too much. You would come ask my grandfather’s permission to marry me before you asked mine?”

“Yes, I would.” Isidore answered. “It was how our father’s and their father’s before them did it.”

“How traditional.” Patti scorned. “Well, I’ll save you getting the wrong answer—I won’t marry you. I told you before, I don’t want any man anymore in my life.”

Isidore absently noted the old man withdrawing but his focus was all on her. “You still think me any man, Patti?”

Patti wavered. Then she defiantly stuck up her chin. “I’m not saying you’re like them. I’m just saying I don’t want marriage anymore. I’m done with it.”

“But I want it. And I want you.”

“You can’t have it with me. So it’d be best we go our separate ways now.”

    Oh dear Lord, I am so glad the story has ended!

    It wasn’t easy. Got to confess it. Didn’t have a storyline. Didn’t have a vision for the love story of Patti and Isidore. I only saw a padlock with love petals and I thought: “Damn! This will make a great cover.” So I designed that first cover and went with the obvious title: KEY TO MY HEART.

    But no storyline, no foreknowledge of how to bring Patti and Isidore together even up until the sixth chapter. I just drifted along… and we made it at the end. Got them together and got a happily-ever-after.

    Thanks, everyone. For reading, for them that commented, God bless you.

    Now, we begin BODY ON MY DOORSTEP next week Tuesday. No worries, I have a storyline this time and it’s been drawn out.
