Episode 34.

Alfred picked up his phone and quickly typed a short message for Mrs Rachael. He needed to do something fast before she hurts his family.

“Call off your dogs, I am on my way to you ” he wrote.

He wanted to send it but then he realized that the message may annoy Rachael and right now he didn’t want her angry at him. What he needed was time to be able to achieve all of his plans. And so he quickly wiped the message and thought of something else to soothe her mind. Just as he was about typing another message came in.

“Alfred are you ignoring my messages? I said where are you? Don’t try me o”

Alfred quickly replied her text.

“Am so sorry dear, I am not at home, I left home about thirty minutes ago. I am on my way to you but had a flat tyre. And you know it’s late so am still trying to get it fixed. I will be with you shortly my love”

After sending the message, he relaxed his mind because he knew she wouldn’t act . He has been able to buy some time for himself. Rachael was a viper and he needed to be wise, very wise to be able to handle her.

He relaxed in his car for a while still trying to decide if to go to her or not. Finally he started the car and drove off to meet up with Dele the bus driver. He paid him and asked him to go to his wife and start the packing. He also whispered something into his ears and then he left his car at his bus stop and took a bike to Rachael.

Rachael was sitted outside with her big tummy, patiently waiting for Alfred. As Alfred walked in, she wore a big smile. But she was surprised that he didn’t drive.

Rachael: you didn’t drive? Where is your car?

Alfred: my love, I told you that I had a flat tyre, I couldn’t have it fixed on time. So I called one of my boy to fix it. I could not keep you waiting. When he is done fixing it he will call me and I will go pick it up.

Rachael: so you mean you will go out and leave me here again?

Alfred: Just to pick up my car. I’d just pick the car and come back here to join you.

Rachael frowned her face.

Alfred: Or would you have preferred I finished up before coming?

“Yes, I would have preferred that” Rachael replied.

Alfred: But you kept on texting and texting. You didn’t believe I was coming. It’s high time you learn to trust me. I don’t break off from a deal. I always finish whatever I start. You should know that by now.

Alfred pretended like he was angry.

“Am sorry, you know you’ve been acting strange lately and that was why I was beginning to worry if you were changing your mind on our plans. Am sorry dear” Rachael said as she was trying to pacify a pretending Alfred.

“Alfred, I said am sorry na, forgive us. Baby and I” she said rubbing her stomach with her hand.”

Alfred then forced a smile and held her hand.

Alfred: It’s alright, how are you and our beautiful baby doing? (Alfred asked pretending to care and putting his hand on her tummy, Rachael smiled as she held his hands against the stomach.)

Rachael: Feel it, can you feel it moving? Very soon you will get to meet her and carry her in your hands. In just eight days time. And the doctor said she might even come before then.

Alfred: eight days?

Rachael: yes eight days. You are excited right? I can’t wait to hold her, my own child.

A terrified Alfred just smiled weakly as he nodded his head in agreement.

Rachael: How I wish Leo didn’t die, he would have been so excited about this child just as I am.

Alfred: Reverend?

Rachael: of course, things wouldn’t have been like this if he didn’t die. Anyways God’s ways are different. Maybe God wanted this child to grow with her real father an that is why he allowed Leo to die.

Alfred was no longer comfortable with the discussion and just as he was showing his restlessness his phone rang.

Alfred: oh that must be Dele, I guess my car is already ready.

Rachael: so you will leave?

Alfred: Yes dear, just to pick the car up.

Rachael: Wait I am coming with you.

Alfred: no you can’t do that.

Rachael: And why can’t I?

Alfred: I’d be coming back very soon, what’s the need of stressing yourself.

Rachael: Do not worry about me, let’s just go.

Alfred: Listen we just buried your husband. People can’t begin to see you and I together. It’s too early. Besides you are acting as if I am running away and not coming back. I am just going to pick my car and come back that’s all. If I didn’t want to come here I wouldn’t have come in the first place. You are doing that thing again.

Rachael: Which thing?

Alfred: that lack of trust thing and you know I hate it.

Rachael: okay am sorry. I just have this feeling that……

Alfred held her on her shoulders and assured her that he would be back before she knows it.

Alfred: Relax and breathe. Count one to hundred and before you know it if be back. Trust me.

Rachael didn’t feel convinced that Alfred would be back. She had this feeling that he wouldn’t be coming back. But she decided to kick it away and trust him. She sits on her chair and told him to hurry and come back to her.

Alfred heaved a sigh of relief as he quickly left the building and rushed to his car. He needs to leave town fast before Rachael the viper strikes.
