??THE TRINITY ?
Michael was shocked by the question. It was meant to be a secret that only two people could knew about.
“Answer me; Are you Ismael’s father? Amah asked him again.
“How do you know this, Amah? Michael asked.
“Typical African! You answer a question with a question. I really don’t care whatever answer you give me though, I already know the truth and listen, there’s something you should know about me, I’m very possessive, sharing is not my thing. Tell Sophie to back off.” Amah said and walked out of his office.
Michael knew instantly that he had met his match. Amah was unpredictable; in fact, she was capable of doing anything. She apparently wasn’t ready to let go no matter how much he cheated on her. Amah was proving to be a possessive woman who wouldn’t give up on anything.
Michael didn’t have an inkling what he had let himself into. When Amah got something in her possession, she could do the unthinkable to keep that thing as long as she wanted it. Amah grew up in a home where everything was at her disposal. She never lacked anything until her father was arrested for fraud.
She had been spoilt growing up. She had learnt to go for whatever she wanted. It was common knowledge amongst her friends and family members that whenever she was unto something, she got it no matter what she had to do to get it. Also when she got what she wanted, she never let it go until she was done with it. Including a man like Michael.
Jason was still in Sophie’s house keeping her company. The conversation turned to Sophie and her past. Sophie found herself telling Jason about her love for Michael. Her love for him seemed to come through every word of hers; in all her talk of him however, she never mentioned that he ever cheated on her.
She just wasn’t ready to wash her dirty linen in public. She regarded Michael as her own personal mess and she felt she would clean him up with time. Besides this was only the second time she was meeting Jason, it didn’t seem right for her to tell him all about her relationship.
“Sophie, tell me, what was troubling you when you ran into my car that day? Jason asked. He was curious to know. Somehow he suspected it had something to do with Michael.
Sophie wasn’t ready for that question. Answering it truthfully would expose Michael. She was conscious that there was something not right between the two men. However, Michael was her man and she felt obliged to defend him till she knew Jason better.
“I had an issue at work but thank God it’s all under control” She said.
“I am glad to hear that” Jason said.
“How long have you been married Jason? Sophie asked. It was surprising how Sophie was really particular and concerned about Jason’s marital life.
“I have been married for two years and I have a three year-old son. A lot of people say he looks a lot like his mother which is true but he also has a lot of my character traits.” Jason said.
His statement got Sophie smiling.
“Your wife must be really lucky; I would love to meet her,” Sophie said.
“Why not, I’m just hoping to get our issues fixed.” Jason said. He looked quite hurt when those words came out of him. His words and expression betrayed the inner turmoil he was going through. He seemed to wear his hurt and family issues on his sleeves. Sophie quickly caught on and she knew Jason needed help.
“Do you want to talk about it” Sophie asked.
Without hesitating, Jason began pouring his heart out. He sorely needed a listening ear.
“I love my wife very much. She was an Angel when I met her. Everything changed 6 months after our wedding when I accused her of cheating on me. It was on the basis of a flirty message I saw on her phone. I guess I was feeling insecure; I should have given her time to explain herself. I kept accusing her for days. I was so hurt by what I had seen but eventually I learnt to live with it and forgave her”.
Ever since, She has been doubtful and curious of what I do and where I go. But I have been honest with her. My life is predictable and I live by the same schedule every single day. From work to lunch, from lunch to work then later I go home. This is me, I don’t do anything else”.
“She all the time accuses me of cheating because I sometimes come home late. She would insult me, disrespect and yell at me in front of my own kid. Can you believe that for the past 48 hours I haven’t been home? I have been sleeping in a hotel because I don’t even feel welcomed in my own house any longer.” Jason said.
Sophie noticed the sincerity in his eyes and couldn’t help but feel pity for him. Time was far spent. It was getting late; they had been talking without even noticing.
Meanwhile, Work was over and Michael made his way to a guesthouse where he had scheduled to meet with Helena. It was a usual rendezvous point for them.
Michael already knew the room number where Helena would be waiting. He got to the room, turned the knob and opened the door. Helena was in the shower by then with her dress lying on the bed.
“Perfect moment for a r0mantic shower.” Michael said to himself. Without thinking, he got undressed and quietly joined Helena in the shower. She was delighted that Michael had joined her. Michael stood behind her and began k!ssing her neck.
Her body was covered with soapy foams making her body slippery. This gave her an unusual s*xual feeling yet very enjoyable. She needed him on the bed. She turned to face him and started k!ssing him on the lips.
Still k!ssing, they got out of the shower completely naked making their way to the bed. Getting to the bed area, they heard the clap of hands like someone applauding a performance.
Startled, they tore away from their k!ss, and turned to see Amah sprawled on the bed, her head against the headboard patiently looking at them.
