Becky and Joan stood confused looking at Matilda on how she has taken it personal.
Joan later found her voice and she uttered what shook even the foundation of the house.
“We don’t need your help neither do we need your friendship anymore.
“What the hell did you just say?” Matilda asked trying to understand Joan clearly.
“I know you don’t need me to repeat what I said, you are smart enough to understand me” Joan said calmly.
“Well, I don’t seem to understand the garbage you just spit out. I can’t seems to comprehend it.” Matilda said getting annoyed already.
“I will break it down for you since you don’t get it. I have known you since my university days and you have been more of a negative influence to me. I really never knew why I chose to tag along with your prideful, arrogant and careless self who has never dim it fit to regret any of her atrocious actions against others let alone take responsibilities for amendment and apologies. I just blindly followed you for reasons i still can’t fathom right as I speak and allowed you corrupt my good self. It takes almost my ruined marriage to discern what you really stand for
and will do anything and everything to get my marriage back by starting to cut of my ties with you” Joan peacefully explained.
“What have I got to do with your marriage? Am I the cause of your husband’s lack of sexual appease or your insatiableness? What’s wrong with you woman? I am not just in for your rubbish and that’s why I came to my best friend’s place and not yours to talk on some more pressing issues” Joan said arrogantly
All things being equal, Becky would have jumped for joy and excitement for
receiving the best friend’s title from Queen Matilda herself but found herself
hating the position right now, not after hearing Matilda’s unremorseful words. “Well, maybe she really didn’t understand are actions and reactions are bad. Maybe if Joan explain more to her, she will understand and apologize of course” Becky thought even trying to defend Matilda.
She remained silent hoping to understand who Matilda truly is.
“I wouldn’t say you are the direct cause of the turbulence in my home right now, yes I was just plainly stupid to transfer the aggression on my poor husband. But I won’t completely rule you out of being a bad friend. You have done nothing to promote peace and happiness for others. You are a definition of a complete self-centered being who doesn’t care about the weight of her words and acts to others. I faltered by not telling the complete truth about my sexual life which I wasn’t supposed to discuss with you or anyone about my husband. I lied to you just to gain your sympathy. I made a grave mistake there and I must confess I have learnt in a bitter way. But I never expected you as my friend to use my pain against me in less than 24hours I told you about them. You mocked my childlessness and insulted my husband right before me. I even voiced out that your words hurt, but what did you do? You unapologetically defended yourself making me feel terrible and then pass it all out on my husband, who had done nothing but care for my safety than his but now he believes I am cheating on him with you, he believes I’m bisexual. I accept my mistakes and I’m greatly sorry for it, you are really a trigger of which I misbehaved and that is why I said I no longer need friendship with you” Joan explained clearly.
“This should do. With this explanation from Joan, Matilda should apologise to her for the sake of peace .” Becky concluded in her thoughts.
But to the utmost surprise of Joan and Becky, Matilda cared not for the effectiveness of her words nor for the trouble in Joan’s home.
“That’s your problem girl not mine. I will definitely not apologise for your own actions, your husband’s thought and your already failed marriage. You should be thinking of what to do to stay in the bondage you call marriage and not be concerned about your friendship status with me. Run along madam marriage, while Becky and I will do nothing but enjoy our spinsterhood to the fullest. I really do not care about you or your failed marriage. You can get your sorry self out of here.” Matilda said exhibiting with great force her bad manners.
“Becky dear, you can tell your friend to excuse us so we can be able to think of ways to get back your hard earned money from that worthless bastard who thinks he can get away with your money” Matilda continued but stopped when she saw the look on both Becky and Joan. She didn’t really care about Joan’s look, but that of Becky got her worried at that moment.
