Episode 8

Bill had been quiet on the issue for almost a week waiting for Bella to come up with an explanation, but she wasn’t coming forth.
Whereas Louis had been begging Mina for the past 7 days trying to explain what caused it.

Mina has still not recovered from the trauma and anytime she recalls what she saw at the hotel, tears roll down her chicks.

Louis had since rejected Bella’s calls for the past 6 days. But picks on the 7th day.

On phone

Bella: Hi, you know I’m sorry for all that happened. I’m very sorry for the conduct of my husband, little did I know of the whole scenario.

Luois: Bella I should be apologizing here. I’ve since rejected your calls because I can’t stand the shame I’ve caused you and myself. I barely eat these days. My home is disorganized, my wife is yet to recover from the trauma and it has been hell for me. I’ve not eaten since morning. I’ve being begging her all day but all she does is cry.

Bella: Hmmmm, my husband has been quiet and calm as tho nothing happened, but I’m not too bothered about that. I want your home to stabilize so you can be happy with your family once again. I can sort myself out. Don’t think about me that much.

Louis: Are you sure? You mean he has not said a word for the past 6 days? It’s really strange, he might have a plan. I think you should start apologising to him, he might find a reason to forgive you.

Bella: Louis, I told you not to bother about me that much, I can handle it. Let’s see to how you can restore happiness in your home.

Louis : well, I’ll get back to you soon. Let me see to what Mina will eat.

Bella: OK, just keep showing her love and attention it may work. Find a convincing explanation to tell her. Let’s see what happens kk.

Louis: I’ve been trying, but let’s see what happens. later then.

That evening

Bill: Babe, I’m from the dinning table and there’s no food. Can you serve me pls, I’m hungry.

Bella: I’m sick, and since you have refused to know how I’m faring for the past 6 days how will you know I can’t cook?
Well I couldn’t cook and I’m hungry as well. I was waiting on you to come so we think of what to eat.

Bill: For real? Bella, upon all that happened that I’ve kept mute about, you still got the guts to tell me I refused to check up on you??
Should I ask you why you did it before you give me an explanation??

Bella: Bill, what did I do? What did you see me doing? Tell me what explanation you need so I’ll give you.

Bill: Bella, so you saw nothing wrong with what you did?

Bella: Bill, why should you inform my parents you saw me with another man. Should you tell my parents whatever goes on in our home?
How did my parent know about this?

Bill: You ignored your mum when she tried talking to you about your actions, you told your dad to excuse you when he tried advising you, how will u know how they got to know about your doings?
Is that why you have been unconcerned all this while?
That’s what you want to defend yourself with right??

Bella: Among the four of us, who on earth would have informed my parents if not you? Are you telling me you didn’t tell my parents about this, are you saying you are not the one?

Bill: Bella, I didn’t call your parents to report you to your mum or dad. If you want to know how they knew you should have listened to them.

Bella: Bill, I’m not ready for this right now. I’m not feeling fine and I need some food and rest.

Bill: Well I don’t think we can get food from anywhere by this time. Manage something from the fridge, I’ll sort myself out.
