Episode 11

Alex was so eager to hear the doctor’s report concerning his wife. He and his mother were at the doctor’s office. “so what happened to her? ” he asked.

The doctor hummed. “Mr Alex I would like to talk to you privately ” he said but his mother insisted she’s not an outsiders. Alex agreed with his mother’s decision because whatever the problem was she would surely get to know.

“From what I get to know out of the test we did, your wife has a damaged womb and cannot give birth to a child of her own ” he said

The words stroke Alex and his mother “why? How comes? ” his mother asked peering at the doctor.
“Well, I can’t dictate but such usually occurs when a lady had an ab0rtion without proper care. ” he said
“What???? ” Alex asked but his mother gave him a frown face and left the hospital immediately.

(Alex pov)

I never knew my wife has such a dark secret, she never told me she was once pregnant and committed an ab0rtion….
I was dumbfounded and speechless when the doctor said it in the front of my mother …… She would tolerate no nonsense like that…..

I will wait patiently for my wife to be treated and discharged before I’ll ask her.

I got home tired and stressed up also looking frustrated when my mum came with her complain, she hit me so hard asking me to get up she wanted to have a word with me.

I sat up expecting nothing but quarrel “now that you’ve seen and heard it yourself, you need no one to tell you that you married a worthless fellow what are you going to do? ” she asked
“mum I don’t know what to do. I’m really confused ”
“confused of what? Tell me you are joking. You know you are the only child of your father and you need successor ”
“yes I know but I don’t have any means of having a baby ”

She sat quiet for a while then stood up and spoke in form of advice or should I call it warning.

“let me tell you something you don’t know, the truth is that you’ve not seen a wife, count yourself as single and start searching because I must carry my own grandchild and my generation cannot be wiped off so soon. Search for a wife from the village you insisted that you wanted a lady from the city. Now look at what your high class lady is causing for you. Better arrange her things so that she will leave this house ” she walked away. Tears flowed freely from my eyes.

I looked at our wedding picture largely placed on the wall and walked towards it “why would you do this to me? You’ve told me everything about you but kept your deepest secrets that finally haunt you ” I said to the picture.

The truth is that my parents will not agree with such and I don’t even think of siding her because she had kept it to herself and she will have to defend and fight for herself.


Ray arrived from work, his wife (lion) served him his dinner as usual. The food was so cold and she knows he likes eating hot food. He called her angrily and demanded why the food was cold.

“Don’t you know I prepared the food very early? How do you expect it to be hot? ” she asked him back
“seriously you are getting on my nerves. Can’t you microwave it? ”
“if you want me to microwave it tell me and stop asking me irrelevant questions that are so annoying ” she said.

She took the food to the microwave so it will warm and served him back.

He took his bathe after eating and joined his wife on the bed. The room was booming with smells, he couldn’t control himself. He summoned courage and asked her “did you take your bath today? ”
“why not? I bathed this morning ” she said
“And now? ” he asked
“I’m not bathing again, do you want me to be washed off my beauty? ” she asked jokingly.
“smelling beauty and dirty attitude ” he said almost angrily

She was so angry “I regret the reason why I married you. You don’t have manners of approach ” she said

“since you regret then get ready tomorrow we are going to visit the lawyer because I’m also regretting and you know two must be compatible before they stay together. We don’t even have anything in common ” he said in a serious tune.

To show how serious and tired he was, he called the family lawyer and informed her they are coming the next day for serious discussion. Belinda was mad in her spirit hearing the word divorce.

“Let me tell you, this is my marital home and I’ll not leave. I know you are admiring another lady, just get another house for her and don’t let me set my eyes on her else I’ll kill her with my bare hands. You’ve started it and you must finish it, you choose me to journey with you and I must follow you to the end” she said

“Belinda you are really mad, is it by force? It’s over it’s over o” he said and took one of the pillow to the living room to sleep. ”

(Belinda’s pov)

He’s just joking talking about divorce…
Because of the way I love him I stopped working when he asked me to stop…. Now he’s talking about divorce I’ll curse his generation if such happened.


(Annabel’s pov)

I laughed heartily when I saw the sour expression on her face.
This is just the beginning by the time i am through with them they will know I’m not just a girl but an almighty.

(unknown pov)
