TOMORROW IS NEVER PROMISED

It was a beautiful Sunday afternoon, Tito had just finished preparing  lunch for her family and was about to dish it out when she heard a knock at the door.

“Who’s that?” She asked as she walked towards the entrance door. She opened the door and it was a friend of hers called rose, who came visiting.

“Hi Rose, how are you?” She asked smiling.

“I’m doing good, how about You?”

“I’m doing good too”

“Okay! Good. I just decided to check on you.”

“Oh that’s nice of you, thank you.”

“So what are your plans for the day?”

“Arrange my things for school and relax”

“Okay cool, I wanted us to go get some clothes from candies boutique, what do you think ?”

“Well let’s do that tomorrow I have to relax and arrange my things tomorrow is just here:”

“Okay then if you say so”

Rose stoop up to go

“I only came to say hi, let’s see tomorrow then.”

“Okay”

They both hugged eachother and tito opened the door for rose then rose left the house. She closed the door and went back to the kitchen to dish out the food.

After dishing out the food, she went to her mother’s room to tell her food is ready.

“Mom! Food is ready”

“Okay dear, will be in the dinning shortly”

Tito went to the dinning and had her own meal then took the plates to the kitchen to wash. She was supposed to go for evening mass but decided to relax and postponed it for tomorrow. She had already made a lot of plans for Monday. She was supposed to leave for school on Tuesday morning.

She went into her room and began to arrange her clothes into her blue  travelling bag.As she was still arranging she heard her mother call her name, she answered and went straight to the sitting room, there she met her mother sitting down

“Tito” her mother called out smiling

“Yes mom”

“How are you preparing for school”

” fine mom, was just arranging my clothes when you called me”

” so when are you going to wash my clothes before you travel, since you didn’t wash it on Saturday.

” I promise to do that tomorrow mom”

” Thank you dear, you can go back to your room”

“Okay mom”

She went back to her room and continued to arrange her things.

It was 7:am on a Monday and Mrs Ohni, tito’s mother had just finished her morning prayers with her husband. She didn’t see tito, she was surprised she didn’t come out for morning devotion. She went to her room to check her and when she got there she called out her name but didn’t get any respond, she moved closely and tapped her but tito didn’t move she was lying tirelessly on her bed. Mrs Ohni screamed out for help and she called the attention of her husband, he ran into the room to meet her and they both rushed her to the nearest hospital. On getting there the doctor confirmed her dead.

It was heart breaking all her plans were ruined she had made alot of plans for tomorrow thinking she was going to see it not knowing she was never going to see tomorrow. She thought tomorrow was promised
