The Love Tragedy

love could turn out to be a tragedy if one is not careful.I remember one story in my community of one boy peter who was deeply in love with Judith.the two one seriously about their relationship but the problem was that Judith parents were not in support of peter since peters clan and Judith father clan were great enemies since the days of their great grand fathers.The two ignored the insinuates of their parents and went on with their relationship and unfortunately peter impregnated Judith something that caused Judith to be chased away from their home by her parents. Peter had no money and so he tried his best to try and take care of Judith but complication developed in Judith pregnancy and she had to undergo an operation in order to deliver.Peter went to Judith family to seek for help but all was in vain.while returning home,he met some guys who told him they will help him and so they took him to a room and told him to look inside a certain mirror,they gave him a knife and told him to stab Judith in the stomach,who image had appeared in the mirror,what a shock ? because peter was desperately in need of money,he stubbed Judith on the mirror and immediately ksh 200,000 was given to him.he ran back home only to find poor Judith bleeding and when taken to the hospital both she and the baby died.what a tragedy.
