60

Richie and his dad had lost hope of seeing

Benny’s family,…. They decided to try for the last

time, they had come as usual begging the

security guard to inform the family that they

came for something important that needs urgent

attention,.. But he refused.

They were still arguing with the security guard

when Benny’s elder brother arrived to visit his

mother,…. They rushed to him and begged him to

allow them into the house,….. At first he refused

but after seeing how serious and worried both

father and son were looking, he reluctantly

allowed them into the house,…. He parked his car

and led them into the house,….

His mother on seeing Mr Johnson enter her

sitting room sprang up immediately with the help

of her walking stick,……. She looked from her son

to her inlaw,…… She was furious,…….

“why did you allow this man into my house? ”

she asked in a low and angry tone.

“Mummy, i think you need to listen to them…

He’s sorry for all that happened in the past,…. “

her son tried explaining to her.

She loved her son so much, and listens to

anything he says,…..

He helped her to sit down, he beckoned on the

two men to sit down,….. Mr Johnson begged the

woman to forgive him for disobeying her,…. He

explained to her all that her daughter did to him,…

How she exchanged his brains for power, wealth

and fame,…… How he was rescued and delivered

from her evil plot……… The old woman listened

with abrupt attention,…… He told the old woman

how she tried to kidnap his granddaughter, how

she was involved in an accident and her present

condition,……

The old woman shook her head, tears were

dropping from her eyes,… She wiped the tears

with the end of her wrapper,……

“I’m not surprised that my daughter did all that, if

only you had listened to me,……. I warned you

about her,… I birthed her and know what she’s

capable of doing,….. “ the old woman said in

tears,……

”So Benny cannot walk again,….. She doesnt

deserve anyone’s sympathy, she’s reaping what

she sow,…. As for you,… You’re lucky you’re

alive today,……. Nobody will blame you for your

decision to severe your marriage with her,……but

She’s my sister,……no matter the evil she

committed, i cant let her die in that condition,… “

Benny’s Brother said almost in tears,……..

”As you can see, i’m too old to travel around,…

Her brother will follow you to Delta State, we

shall make arrangements on how she’ll be taken

care of,…… “ the old woman said.

Richie and his daddy thanked them for their

understanding and they agreed that they would

leave for Asaba in two days,….

:

:

Mrs Johnson was discharged the day her brother

and the Johnson ‘s returned from Lagos,….

Richie drove straight to his father’s house,……..

On seeing her brother, Benny started shedding

tears, he joined his sister in crying,……

“Look at what you did to yourself,….. Your news

is everywhere,…… I dont think mother will ever

forgive you for this,…… “ her brother told her.

”i’m so sorry,…”. Pls forgive me” she managed to

say,…..

“You shouldn’t be begging me to forgive you,

rather you should beg your late friend,…. Who

You nearly destroyed her home,… ”

Richard and his daddy stood watching the siblings

display their emotions ,….. They soon announced

their departure,

Richie has missed his family so much and cant

wait to see them,… Mr Johnson told her brother

to inform them any time he was ready to return

to Lagos with Benny,…..

:

:

Richie was happy to be home again,…. Angela

was so happy to see him,… After bathing and

eating, he cuddled his daughter to sleep and took

her to the nursery before retiring to his room,…..

He told his wife how they suffered to meet his

step mother’s family and how they agreed to take

her back to Lagos,…… They talked long about Mrs

Johnson before Angela changed the topic,…

“Tope was here some days ago ” she said

changing the topic.

”ooooh was she?, “ he asked absent mindedly.

”Why didnt you tell me she tried luring you into

marrying her” she threw at her husband.

“It doesn’t matter anymore, all that matters now

is that i’m married to you,… “ he said calmly.

”it matters alot because she was my best friend,

….. How could you hide such a thing from me?,

….. If my mother hadn’t told me, i would’ve been

in the dark,…… I’ve been a fool,….. How am i

even sure that you didnt sleep with her” she

smirked at her husband.

Richie sprang from the bed in anger on hearing

that,…….

“What did you just say?,….. Do you know what i

passed through when you were kidnapped?,….Do

you even know the pains i suffered when you

returned and couldn’t remember me, i stood my

ground because of my love for you,…. Now

you’re accusing me of sleeping with your friend,

….. Even if i want to flirt around, why would i do

that with your best friend,……. “ he screamed at

his wife.

She was taken aback with her husband’s

outburst,……. He then continued.

”So you think i could stood so low to sleep with

Tope?,…… I think i’m done talking about this “ he

said leaving the room.

Angela regretted ever talking to her husband in

such manner,….. She waited for her husband to

return in order to apologize to him,…….. She

didnt know when she slept off while waiting for

her husband, she woke up the next morning to

meet her husband already dressed for work,….

She rushed out of bed to prepare his breakfast,….

He refused eating and meant to leave when he

remembered the file he forgot in his room,….. He

quickly ran upstairs to his room to get the file,….

Angela followed him,… She entered the room and

closed the door behind her,….. She hugged her

husband from the back,……. She held him so tight

and refused letting him go,…….

“Baby pls i’m so sorry for making such

utterances last night, pls forgive me,…… I cant

bear to see you angry with me,….. “ she

apologized in tears.

Richie turned to face her,…. He cant stand seeing

his wife in tears,…… He wiped her tears with his

hanky,……

”Now sit down,…… “ he beckoned on his wife,…..

She obeyed him and sat on the bed.

”Now listen, our marriage is still young,.. We

need to build our home with trust,….. I was

heartbroken when you falsely accused me of

sleeping with Tope,……. I’m sorry i over reacted,

…… “ he said pecking her on the fore head before

giving her a passionate kiss on the lips,……..

”I’m sorry for not trusting you “ she apologized.

”I wish i can make sweet love to you Angel,…..

I’ve missed you so much,…… “ he said with lust

in his eyes.

”It’s too early for that” she teased her husband.

They went downstairs and had breakfast together,

….. He left for the office after saying goodbye to

his daughter,……..
