What End?

It’s Saturday morning and I am still pondering on what to write.114 submissions are already in.

The ‘End’, seams so final, but is it?

I remember when I was in my third year in secondary school that every thing seemed to end for a while.

My Auntie who was my guardian had to go into exile in another country; her last words to me before she went kept ringing in my ears,

“Go to my friend Frances’ house; she will take care of you.”

There was no time for her to organize any thing, nor for me to pack any thing except a small bag and my schoolbooks.

What will happen to me, I wondered. Suppose my Auntie’s friend refuses to accommodate me, what then? I felt so alone, in a city with many people. I was so lonely, without family to depend on.

My Auntie had always told me that my education was what would shape my future, but
As things were going, there might be no shaping at all. My education seemed to be ending, coming to a full stop.

* * *

Life at Auntie Frances’ house was very different from what I had anticipated.
I was cared for in every way, the family showed me love. What a witness!

I completed my ordinary level because my Auntie had a friend, who demonstrated love at all times, indeed there are friends that stick closer …

The Lord Jesus, He is my beginning and end, and in Him I trust at all times
He knows my comings and my goings, and orders my steps.

Jesus says, “I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending”
What seems to be an end can be a beginning.

I'd had loved to know more about the circumstances of your move to the friend's house. Take the middle section of this, and make a longer story, with more details for your hungry readers, please! It's best to avoid references to the Challenge in your entry, and your story would be much stronger if it began with your uprooting. Great start!

Short, sweet and to the point! Great job! I loved your take on "End", and yes, perhaps you will tell us more of your life story during the next few weeks, in bits & pieces, through your mastering of the art of Writing. Well done!

I can see great depth of insight in your writing. And you do it justice within the limits you have. It'll be a joy to read more as you progress in this complicated language!
