Miss. God-husband

She was a paranoid woman; always thinking of the millions of ways life could suddenly betray her. This is probably the reason why Miss god-husband was a famously single woman with very modest looks who needed help with her attitude. She was a feminist not because she had low self-esteem and felt the best way to overcome it was to become a lesbian superwoman who wants to save a world that has gone up in flames, she was a feminist because she was a stubborn woman. She came from a long line of thoroughly educated but stubborn people who derived pleasure in disobeying and questioning conventional ways of doing things. Hers in particular was a very rare case of stubbornness. She had stubbornly rejected the idea of education which was a first in a long line of PhD’s…but not before getting a PhD in philosophy from a rather prestigious world class university. Miss god-husband was a very tough woman to deal with. Just last month, she was at the bank trying to make some very reluctant payments and a rather unfortunate fellow with a smug look of self-satisfaction referred to her as an illiterate market woman. By the time she was through with him, he had lost all of his calm and composure.

Miss god-husband, died this morning. She had a smile on her face as she closed her eyes for the last time. She knew she made many mistakes and that hers was not a perfect life, but she was grateful for the freedom she found in her rebellion, the salvation it brought her and the vigour and sting of youth it bestowed on her. She was true to herself and that was all that mattered.
