“What? You call me a cheat and a barren woman? She said and began shedding tears.
Nana was perhaps too hard on her. He had never seen his wife shed tears over a quarrel before. She was the one who usually wins but today it was not so.
Nana felt bad for making his wife cry but he couldn’t help it. This was not the way he planned on confronting his wife, he made his anger over shadow him.
“I’m sorry, it didn’t come out right. I’m sorry” Nana said.
“You are sorry, it doesn’t change anything. You called me a cheat and a barren, who is the cheat here, the one I caught cheating on me is now calling me a cheat. Wow, what a turn of events.” Adoley said.
“There she goes again. Always dwelling on my past, I won’t call you a cheat if I don’t have any basis ok” Nana said.
Their anger now controlled them forgetting the love they have for each other. Both of them thought they were right. They tried to justify themselves by yelling at each other even to the extent of using their words against each other. That was not supposed to be happening to them. Their constant quarrel was getting out of hand that was breaking the chain that existed between them when they got married.
Fafa was gradually winning, letting her take a vital role in the family is tearing them apart now. The yelling continued. From Adjoa’s room, she could hear them yet there was nothing she could do. She just prayed to God to intervene because their constant fighting and yelling was becoming too much now.
“What basis are you talking about Nana, tell me” She asked.
“Your friend is not as bad as I thought, you should be asking her that” Nana said.
“Fafa? You mean Fafa told you this lie” She asked Nana.
“Oh you think, she will support you like she always does, right? Well guess what, she didn’t. Besides she was the reason I got home late if you care to know. How could you do this to me” Nana said.
Adoley broke down. She couldn’t believe her ears, Fafa actually told a lie about her. She will never cheat for any reason. She loves him very much but now she has realized the fool she had been all this while taking advice from a friend she thought she could trust. A friend she had grown up with. How could she have done that to her. She realized her mistakes and wished she could turn the hands of time and make things right now.
If Fafa could go to that extent after even advising her to cheat on her husband then she definately can’t be trusted. Suddenly, Adoley took off the dress she wore and stood right in front of Nana, totally naked. Nana had no idea of what she was trying to do. It has been ages since he even saw his own wife as naked as she was now. She looked very beautiful while she stood there naked. There was no doubt about that.
Nana wanted to just grab the whole of her and start kissing her, but his ego won’t let him. Adoley stood and looking straight into Nana’s eyes. Nana couldn’t look back, than to turn his face away.
“Nana look at me, look at me Nana” She said.
“What are you trying to do?” Nana asked.
“Just look at me” She said.
Nana had no option now, He turned and looked at his wife as she stood there naked.
“Take a good look into my eyes and tell me that you believe I cheated on you.” She said.
Nana couldn’t answer her. He tried to look away again but Adoley didn’t allow it.
“Tell me Nana this naked woman standing right in front of you has cheated on you. You are the only person who have ever seen my nakedness. I love you. I know I have been too hard on you. I know I have given a place to Fafa in this marriage which shouldn’t be so. I want to re-write my past and be the wife I am supposed to be. To love my husband and take care of him no matter what. I decided that even before you came home from work. I prepared your favorite meal bought the expensive champagne I could lay my eyes on at the shop. I just want to make things right between us Nana.” Adoley confessed.
Something she had never done in her entire life. Nana on the other hand saw the sincerity in her eyes and knew that she was speaking the truth and being honest with him.
“I thought I had lost you Adoley, I thought this marriage will no longer work. I even made reservation for dinner today but when Fafa came to my office today, I couldn’t just help it. Am sorry.” Nana said.
“I understand, guess what” She said.
“What” Nana asked.
“it’s too late to have dinner don’t you think so” Adoley said.
“I think you are right, come to think of it I’m really hungry” Nana said and turned away to head to the kitchen.
Adoley held him to his surprise and began unzipping his flap.
“Your dinner is right here my husband” She said.
Before they knew it, they were kissing intensely. The bed was not big enough for them, the shower was not enough for them, they made love throughout the night. That was the very first time after their marriage they had really enjoyed each other. It was a perfect night.
