Letters To Subola

This is a series of events surrounding the ongoing strike.

It's been three months and exactly two weeks since you lost it, and I mean your phone, which meant many things to you. It was your most prized possession, your means to getting your livelihood, and the only means by which we communicated since the commencement of the strike. Sometimes, I wish it was so for me; that I never need a phone.

At first, I thought you ignored me, knowing fully well that your phone arrived from the repair office two weeks before we were compelled to vacate the school premises. I wonder what kind of phone you have. Since it seems impossible to have your phone back and to resume, I decided to continue leaving a message for you; you know well that I'm bad at verbalizing my words when I see you... I don't know why I stutter.

Sometimes, I wonder how, where, and why I met you. Every time, I don't have the time to think because it feels like solving an algebraic equation or finding the bearing and distance of a place. I've forgotten even the simplest of all chemical equations. Ola, what's the strike doing to you?
