I once met this young man, his name is Ethan. He worked as a sales manager at my dad’s grocery store!

The first day he came on, I knew he was the one! He was about 6 feet tall, African descent, well built and had a sweet captivating voice that made me shiver every time he spoke to me! He dressed very simple but with so much class! To place it all in a nutshell he was drop dead sexy! But what captured my attention the most is the respect he has for women and his love for God! He was the full package! And I was not going to let him slip away!

I was the one to ask him out on our first date and from there on we emerged! We grew loser and love was all in the air! And everything was going perfect until I enquired about his family; he started to behave very strange and always tried to change the subject! This aroused my suspicion because we were planning to get married and I don’t know anything about his family. He couldn’t just fall from the sky! Or maybe he did! Maybe he’s an alien from another planet! But only a fool would believe that!

I began to do some background research on him! Something I should have done a long time ago! I hoed desperately to find something but nothing prepared me for the shock of my life that I was in for! My fiancé was murderer! He once lived with his mother father and elder brother in Berbice. He had stabbed his brother twelve times about his chest! I wanted to cry and scream! My head began to hurt, I felt sick inside! I broke up with him that very same day! He begged me to listen to him, but I told him it was over between us! And I ever wanted to see him again! That faithful day Ethan committed suicide! It left me in distraught at the thought that maybe he didn’t kill his brother! Maybe it was an accident! Maybe he truly loved me! Only if I had listened to what he had to say my questions would have been answered, and he would have still been living today!
