Reena’s Xploration Challenge #183 – Fish out of Water

Welcome to, Reena’s Xploration Challenge!

Reena has offered us a lovely picture to serve as inspiration (my cover). My submission comes from watching too many catfish episodes of Dr. Phil …as far as my husband is concerned lol

My Submission:

This is my favorite photo. She took it just for me. 

We’ve never met in person, but she calls me her husband, and I call her my wife.

She’s stuck in Africa at the moment.

I’ve sent her loads of money, for food, legal fees, her hotel.

But, I don’t mind.

I love her.

I sold my car and then my house to send her money.

But, I don’t mind.

I love her.

She calls me sweetie, her pumpkin pie. 

I know she loves me too, and I would gladly give my life for this woman,

My wife.

We’ve never spoken on the phone and we haven’t Skyped,

But I understand things are different in Africa.

I trust her.

One day soon, we will unite,

Me, and my beauty from abroad.

      1. Totally! He kept INSISTING she was real because she was sending him pictures and lovey dovey emails. We were like, “Do NOT send the money she is asking for”, but he was convinced she was his girlfriend.
