Episode 5

It was Sunday, Danny dressed in blue suit with white inner wear while his wife wore a white gown with blue ribbon hooked at the upper part of the gown. She parked her hair with blue ribbon and wore a pair of white heels that makes her almost the same height with her husband.

“Honey you look perfect ” he said
She blushed “same with you ” she replied.
“I always wonder if you are a mermaid or a fairy” she placed her finger on his lips and pecked him.

They set to go to Ray’s house. Rose and Alex wore native of the same design.

They were so excited and overwhelmed with joy, the house was neat. Ray tried his best to make the house look good before his friends and their wives come around. As fate would have it his wife prepared the meal perfectly but she still had something that Rose will use against her before she will advise her.

The families enjoyed the meal prepared by Belinda, soon the men separated themselves so that the plans would begin.

Edith and Belinda who never knew about the plans spoke freely until Rose changed the topic “how have you been coping with your husbands? Any complaints or misunderstanding?” she asked absent mindedly thinking the idea will not work.

Edith is the kind of lady that don’t like making her private life known to outsiders so she kept quiet but Belinda who was helpless with the way Ray has been treating her decided to speak so that her friends would help her out.

“Hmmmm! My sister it’s not easy at all. The husband I married has become a beast o, I remembered at campus when he used to kneel down to apologize to me but now it’s the other way round. He has totally changed ” says Belinda

Edith hummed “I don’t get you, what are you trying to say? ” she asked
“my husband dislike me, the love he had for me had gone when I stepped into his house ” she said amidst tears.

Edith shook her head in pity while Rose smiled mischievously like someone who has succeeded in a mission.
“I’ll not blame your husband Belinda, the Belinda I knew then is different from the present one” she said. That was when Edith coded.

“What happened to me? ” she asked looking at her body like someone filthy who couldn’t find the stake.

“Belinda look at your hair for Christ sake, it’s rough and you don’t care about it not just that. Take a look at Edith and yourself, you look like Edith’s mother and if I would not mistaken she’s two months older than you right? ” Belinda looked at herself
“But I’m okay now, I have to dress like a mother ” she said
“No, you have to look fancy and sexy, can’t you see the way your husband dress? ” said Edith
“please dear don’t disgrace yourself else one day another woman will snatch him from you ” Rose added. The three were quiet

While the men were watching at the three ladies from the hiding place “what did you even see in this Calabar girl? ” Alex started at Ray
“it’s the same thing you saw in that Igbo girl ” he retorted
“either Calabar or Igbo they are all meant to be married so long as they are single. All what I know is that Ray is after big buttocks” said Danny, that made all burst into laughter.
“And you, you are after beauty ” Ray tried to include Danny
“Not just beauty, he likes well packaged lady and now she’s turning him down ” added Alex, that all laughed
“she’ll not turn me down tonight, this my testicles will go after her even to her father’s house ” he said, this time the laughter was uncontrollable.

The women were confused about the sudden laughing discussion among their husbands. Rose tried her best to force words from Edith but she insisted she’s cool with her husband.
“Danny and I are doing cool as you can see, I think he is the perfect man because he tolerate anything I do” she said.

For Belinda, all what her friends said only touched her skin. It did not sink into her brain, she believed her husband will not act in such a way with her just because of her dressing.


At 9pm they all left Raymond’s house to their respective homes.
Edith and Danny discussed about what happened when they were with their friends. She laughed about the gossip of Belinda but he did not tell her about her own.

At home they both freshened up without dinner, they were both satisfied. Danny was on his plan, by will or by force she must give him one.

(Edith’s Pov)

We chatted together like new lovers or should I say lovers at first sight, soon the chat was emotional. We kissed gently from gently the kiss became intense, his hands was on my body. He played with my chest while the kiss go deeper. The thought of sex crossed my mind then I stopped the kiss.

“Hope you are not trying to show me attitude? ” he asked. I looked at him and shook my head as no but deep down in me I was not ready to shout or moan.
“then let’s continue, I want to have you ” he said.
