Home for a warrior's soul

“A great warrior needs a vessel for his soul to live on through.” That was why I married Dee Nnaemeka, a man not much younger than my father. But when I was sent to his obi that night he said, “Nne, I’m old enough to be your grandfather in some parts of this rotten world, remain dressed.”
He said too, that the wars had left him with a bitter cold in his chest, he needed my warmth and nothing else.
I held him every night for ten years. And on those nights, I believe his soul found a home.
