By Ekerete Udoh

She sounded absolutely distraught, and utterly disconsolate. Her usual exuberance, the bonhomie which she wears like a badge of honor was missing both in her voice and in her demeanor. She was inconsolable, pained and emotionally devastated. She had every reason to feel that way. For over six years, she had given her all to a romance that had been celebrated, touted and written about as one that was made in heaven.
