Inspite of everything, he`s gone through in his young life, Desmond has never caught himself thinking defeating thoughts before. He has always been tough and hard core but when he came in contact with Cherryl, she awoke tender emotion in him that caused the hardness he is made of to evaporate. He desired her with a selfish hunger but Cherryl wanted him for good. He thought he wasn`t good enough for her. However, when he reached a breaking point, he had no option than to let go. It is not always dark; darkness surely gives way to light once light is introduced. Weeping indeed endures for the night but Joy comes with the limelight of the morning. Cherryl brought light to Desmond and this book can bring you the light you so much desire. a€œWhy is everybody and everything against him? Why didna€™t he die at child-birth or even in the operating room during those unsuccessful surgeries? Why is he not like the other of his mates? Why is everybody wicked and callous? Why is there no kind person around in the whole world? These and other series of questions bothered him so much that he refused to go to class for the night prep that evening; rather he laid down on his bed and wept himself to sleep... Who said a blind man cana€™t dream? Who said a handicapped cana€™t have vision and pursue it with vigour? Desmond refused to be tagged invalid or handicapped, he knew he was headed somewhere and he sure wasna€™t going to allow anyone define him with his disability, He may be disabled in one way but he sure has lots of abilities so he was not going to let the disability over ride all the abilities he is bestowed with. He knew that with memories, yesterday still lives so what he did was to brush those memories aside and set before him the dreams, hopes and aspirations of tomorrow, he knew his tomorrow will be far better than his today if he worked hard and worked right. Desmond wants to distinguish himself just like the eagle, he wants to be exceptionally different from his mates though they are all in the same school and class but he has his eyes focused somewhere and none is strong enough to stop him except himself... As they carried him out, he prayed and hoped that someone will see them or even the house master that sent for him but alas, none was insight it was as if they had bribed everyone in the school premises. They carried him out to only God knows where and when they got to their destination, they told him they werena€™t there for jokes, he should tell them where that money was or they will kill him. Desmond was shocked beyond words, all these for the four thousand dollars he won as award? These were not students so how did they get to know about the money? a€˜Blind bat! One of the guys roared, where is the damn cash? Desmond didna€™t want to appear frightened to them so he kept mute trying to gain composure... Desmond scampered to the direction he heard the doga€™s shrill cry, a€˜Brownie, oh, Brownie, please dona€™t die! As he took some steps further, he stumbled over a log and fell down, he tried getting up but couldna€™t, he has broken an ankle. Tears of anguish and pain streamed down his face; he sat there weeping, he felt the grasses rustle around him. Brownie whimpered to his side still shaken from the whole episode... Meanwhile, exams has begun since yesterday and funny enough no teacher has asked of Desmond. What is really going on, could it be that Desmond has left school for now? But why didna€™t he tell either Roland or Daniel? These two have been quite close to him in the recent time...a€˜Thank you Sir, Roland said, a€˜we came to report to you that we havena€™t seen Desmond around for the past three days and exams has started. a€˜To make matters worse Sir, Daniel joined in, a€˜no teacher has ever asked of him during the exams so we decided to come to you Sir to reporta€™ he concluded... The Principal sent the security men to go fetch Mr. Lambert, they came back with the shocking news that he was found stabbed to death in his bathroom...
