(Remeber the distance or colour does not matter but love matters alot in life)
After reading that heartwarming email it seems like something touches me all over my body, too. But that's a whole 'nuther story. Hoping to get to know Miss Sussan Khalifa better, I answered with a short noncommittal email.
What a surprise. She answered back!
Hello My Dearest One,
I am more than happy when i read your mail now, How are you over there in your country? I hope you are fine. My name is Miss sussan Khalifa. I am 23 years old but age is not matters what matters is love and understanding, i am a second year medical student before the incident that lead to my being in this place. I am hoping to further my education in this career. I am not married and don't have children. I am chocolate in complexion and of average heigth, my picture will explain to you better.
I am from Liberia in West Africa and presently i am residing in the refugee camp here in Dakar Senegal as a result of the civil war that was fought in my country,
My late father Dr Wilson Khalifa who was one of the most sucessful enterpreneur in my country and my mother was a senior accountant at the Eco Bank Of Liberia, before the tragic war which claim their lifes and now living me as an orphan and i was the only child so i managed to make my way to near by country Senegal where i am seeking asylum now. I haven't finish up my education and i need a man who will make use of my fathers wealth and get me through in life.I would like to know more about you.Your likes and dislikes. Your hobbies and what you are doing presently.
I will tell you more about myself in my next mail. here is my picture for you, though I am not all that photogenic, i am wait to hear from you soon, please write me back because i have something important to tell you ok and try all you can to send me your own photo ok, i am waiting for your mail,
She called me her dearest one. And she told me her name---again. She also included a photo.
Oh, sussan. Sussan my beauty not all that photogenic, of chocolate complexion and average height. With my heart pounding and blood racing, my flushed face reflecting in my monitor, my fingers adoringly replied.
I'm sorry to hear of your hard times being in a refugee camp. And being an orphan, too. That is very sad. Medical school is a great goal and I wish you the best. What country do you plan to seek asylum in?
I am a successful entrepreneur as your late father was. My company is called Sprocket Cluster And Mechanical. It's a small company but we're doing very well. I manufacture customized gears for bicycles, mostly racing bikes. So it only makes sense that one of my hobbies is bike riding. I also enjoy coin collecting, going to plays, and photography.
You look very nice in your picture. You have a sweet smile.
That's funny you should ask for a picture of me. I take pictures all the time but never of myself. I'll see if I can dig one up for you.
Take care, Sussan.
Sadly, I have yet to hear back from sussan. Or Sussan. Perhaps she was wise enough to figure out what Sprocket Cluster And Mechanical really means.
