Re[story] Misplaced trust (true life story) episode 7 final

Misplaced trust (true life story) episode 7 Read below~


At first I ignored her call, but when she persisted,

I had to take the call meaning to ask her to call

me back later, but what followed was


I heard Esther crying and asking me to forgive

her over the phone. She wanted to see me


When I asked her what I had to forgive her for

she said she was the one who planted the note

which broke my marriage with Dayo and had sent

the suspicious e-mails I read.

I was so deeply hurt that I went into labour in

that moment.

Dayo’s father and siblings could not figure out

why I cried the way I did.

At first they thought that Dayo had passed on.

Shola had to pick my phone which I flung in her

direction to find out whom I spoke with over the

phone and what he or she might have told me.

After I had successfully delivered my baby, Shola

gave me the full gist of what she had found out

from Esther.

Esther happened to have had a crush on Dayo,

and had hope of nailing him down until I took

him away.

Determined to win him for herself, she went to

work to destroy my marriage.

All these were strange to me, I had heard stories

of women stealing other women’s husbands, but I

was too naïve to believe any of it. I believed that

men leave their wives because they want to.

When I mentioned Esther’s confession to Dayo,

he didn’t speak a word for over thirty minutes.

He simply turned on his bed and faced the wall.

It turned out that after I moved out of his house,

Esther began to pester him to let her move into

his house so she could take care of him.

It hurt Dayo so much because he did not make

the connection when Esther pestered him and

threw herself at him at every chance she got.

She had to confess what she did because a

native doctor had told her that if she did not, she

would never get married (I do not believe this

was the reason she confessed. She confessed

only because she saw that Dayo was as good as

dead. Perhaps guilty conscience wouldn’t let her

move on).

However the thought of Esther visiting a native

doctor for whatever reason scared the living day

out of me.

Back where I come from I did not hear of such. I

saw girls flaunt their bodies to catch the men

they wanted, but did not hear of any visiting

native doctors.

In all, I learnt that I was naïve about love and


Dreaming about love did not mean I knew jack

about it.

Right under my nose, a fellow woman took my

marriage and smashed it on the floor.

You can dream about love all you want, if you

do not work your fingers sore and learn how to

love and keep your man, you might lose him to

those who want him more than you do.

On the other hand, the birth of my son seemed

to give Dayo a lot more reason to fight and live.

He did not survive the cancer, but he lived long

enough to see his son say, “Dada.”

My mother in-law woke from coma about a

month and two weeks after I had my son.

She still treats me like an angel in spite of my

folly. I still regret my stupidity. I should have

believed Dayo when he swore to me that he

knew nothing about that note.

Cancer may have killed him anyway, but we

would have lived happily all those months I left


Maybe…just maybe my love would have stopped

the cancer.

Someday I might get the chance to love again,

and even if I catch my man pants down with

another woman, I won’t throw him away, until I

have heard the whole story.
