The girl that stole my heart.

only God knew whether worms would have the courage to bore into her flesh when she died

She was not the kind of girl you towed around hand in hand along Kampala’s dusty streets. No! Hers was a kind of beauty to be stared at, admired and preserved. In fact a friend had suggested that if it were possible, I should put her in an aquarium and place it in my living room. Then each day as I returned home, I would stare and behold the regaling goddess in the glass case, unblemished and pure.
Only God knew whether worms would have the courage to bore into her flesh when she died. I doubt they would. Ten days after her death she would still be as intact in flesh as a newly born. I was convinced that God would let her into heaven in her earthly form. He too would be hesitant to let this glittering creation of his hands to rot away into soil.
