Waking up to the sound of a non-stop alarm, the room was too highly illuminated that Samantha found it very difficult to open her eyes due to the brightness of the sun coming in directly into the room through the open window, oh OMG I forgot to close the window last night Sam lamented.
”oh my goodness her mother lamented. ” honey what happen you haven gone to work yet? good morning mum, morning darling how was your night? it was fine mum.
what happened Sam you look very dull? its nothing mum.
Sam don tell me its nothing just look at your face you don look okay. its nothing serious just I couldn fall asleep early last night, and I think thats the reason why I woke up so late today.
Don worry mum. ” I still have like thirty minutes before my resumption time, I have informed my manager that I will be coming in a little bit late today and he said no problem that I should take my time.

On getting to the bus station Sam couldn get a bus or even a cab on time, she was growing impatient, an hour passed and then two hours, oh my God! why are my legs shaking?did I stand for too long?oh my God let me find a place to sit down before I faint here. ” before she knew it three hours had passed, when she couldn bear it anymore, she started murmuring and then crying over her miserable life, sometimes I wish I could just sleep and never wake up. ” in fact I wish I will just die right now, what kind of situation is this? why have I been cursed since birth, because I know since that moment I was born, nothing good has happened but series of hardship, pains, struggle and suffering. why me God? please say something why does it have to be me? ” I am tired it suffocating ” Sam said sobbing.
