Behind the mask of the clown, lies a trail of tears...

                  Behind the Mask
 
Everyone knew that Fabian Ekwueme was the most fulfilled man in our village. He had a motorcycle, a television and a radio.
Whenever he drove past, on his Suzuki, everyone admired him.

Wives wished he were their husbands, husbands wished they were him and youths worked hard to become him. He was rich and always dressed so fine. And so, everyone worked, waited and prayed to become Fabian.

But one cold Saturday evening, Fabian came home, locked the door and hanged himself. The whole village gathered and found his body, hanging from the rope. Everyone was surprised. He was rich.

This reads as a summary with potential for development so the ending will have more impact.

Lol... I love this piece of work. Please could you tell us what was possibly "behind the mask" in Fabians life... Again I Love the sound of "Wives wish he were their Husbands". Thanks for that piece of work.. Even the seemingly most successful Man has issues to deal with.

Leaves one wondering like being given an appetizer and there is no meal.
