A ring on the doorbell.
Lane stood at the door with a plate of cookies.
Hey come on in.
No thanks. Just some good bye cookies. I’m off for good this time round.
Do you have any job lined out yet.
No not yet. I just want to be out there in the free world. Its not that nice writing resumes saying that I’m currently a mad locked up housewife in a compound. I just want to go and clear my head.
And off she went.
Her story is no different from many stories I heard here. Some people just love it or some just go plain crazy. The ones who love it here are those who normally have children and liked the idea of living in a gated community with all sorts of facilities the family can enjoy.
But those looking for freedom to roam about outside, working alongside men and most people normally do in the outside world, well its almost impossible here.
Good bye Lane and good luck. I wish you well and perhaps we’ll bump into each other someday.
