Adanna could feel within her that something was wrong but she couldn’t quite figure it out. All of a sudden her husband seemed too busy to spend quality time at home,he was always going on trips and even when he is in town he comes home very late and leaves for work very early.
At first she thought it was his new position in the office but some how they no longer connected it seemed that spark that used to attract them to each other was
no longer there. She has gone out of her way to try to bring things back to normal but nothing seem to work.
She doesn’t even have time for herself anymore,she does all the chores and then have constantly be cooking all his favorite meals but he only eats a little and leave. She wondered if her food was no longer sweet was it
that she was forgetting some ingredients when she cooked. She was so caught up with trying to get to the root of their issues she no longer took care of herself, she has lost a lot of weight and she wasn’t even eating well.
Before she used to complain that her husband did not satisfy her in bed,well he seemed to have heard her complaints because he no longer made attempts to even sleep with her anymore. Even when she tried he kept saying he was tired from work or he had something important to do the next day.
She wanted to confront him about all the issues but decided not to make matters worse than they already were. All she did now was to pray that whatever was going on should pass quickly and she and her husband may return back to normal.
She just finished doing her house chores as usual when the door bell rang and Adams walked in.
“Hey Ad wassap?”
“Am cool and you?”
“All good,long time o as you decided to forget me,you couldn’t even call to check on me haba” he said
“Sorry Adams things have just been messy for me down here. So tell me how did the deal go?
[B] “It was great everything went as planned” he replied
“Then why did you spend an extra week?” She asked
“Oh that’s because I decided to spend some time with my parents”
Okay,so how are they?”
“They are fine”
“You never ever talk about them why?”
He shrugged and went on to tell about the drift he had with his parents after choosing art as a profession instead of working at the family’s consulting firm. When she asked for the name of the firm he told her and
she was surprised cause that’s where her husband worked and told him so. He stayed for a while and they talked about a lot of things and a for a whileshe seemed to have forgotten all about her problems at home.
Kylie have been having the best time ever this past weeks. She and Samuel were practically like a married couple except the fact that he wouldn’t just divorce that his boring wife.
He travelled but will be back today,she
wanted to follow him for the trip but she was really busy with work. She went to buy the ingredients she needed to prepare a meal for him when he returns.
She was almost through when she heard someone called her name from behind dhe turned around just to find Adanna.
“Hi” she said
“Hello Kylie,sorry for disturbing you from your shopping but I just had to be sure it was you”
“No that is no problem na,I would have done the same if I was in your shoes”
“Okay then,I will let you continue with your shopping, am through with mine I only came to get the things i will use to prepare a dish for my husband,he traveled for a business trip”.
” Same here am shopping for my fiancé who is also out for a business trip”
“Wow that’s nice maybe someday you and him can come over to the house. What do you think about that?” She asked
“Well I will have to speak to him about that first but don’t worry I will keep you u posted on anything he says”
“Okay na,will see you some other time” she said as she walked away to pay for her items.
Kylie watched her go and chuckled yeah maybe she should invite her fiance for the dinner or should she say our husband laughing she continued with her shopping.
Adanna has been waiting for her husband to arrive but he was a no show,his numbers were switched off,she even called the airport and was told the flight he was in landed hours ago.
She was at a loss because she had no idea where he could be. She did not want to report the matter to the police and discover he just went to the office. Wait she hasn’t called his office yet,she got up and went to dial his office line but it kept ringing.
She tried his secretary next and was told her husband came to the office to see their boss but left after the meeting waned. She decided to keep calm and wait till he returns home.
“Kylie,you are the best cook in this world” Samuel said as he helped himself to a plate of pounded yam and afang soup.
“Thanks honey,now hurry up and let’s go back upstairs to finish what we started” she said as she winked at him.
Samuel did not need no further invitation he pounced on his meal. He had returned early but had stopped at the office to brief his boss and from there came to Kylie’s house where they had tore at each other like hungry
animals. They had spent hours in her room trying to make up for lost time and when he got hungry she served him this wonderful meal.
Life is indeed beautiful when you meet the right person he thought.
After he was through eating, she cleared the table while he went to watch sports highlights in the sitting room. As he sat down on the couch he discovered that his phone that was on the centre table was switched off so he turned it back on,immediately messages started entering his phone and many was from that woman he keeps in the house. Oh Lord have mercy what does she wants again.
He dialed her number and she picked at first ring
“Hello dear,are you alright I have been sending you tons of messages as your phone was switched off”
“Am fine,I just saw them now and that why am calling you”
“Wait so you your saw my messages and that’s why you are calling back? Are you not supposed to have called me when your plane landed huh? For goodness sake
I have been worried sick. Where are you by the way?”
“Am at a friend’s place am trying to put together my presentation for my boss tomorrow”
“But your secretary told you had already seen your boss today?”
“Well I saw him to give him an important file and by the way while are you keeping tabs on me?”
“For starters am your wife who is worried and you are talking about tabs, are you for real?”
“Look woman I really need to get back to work so what is it you want?”
“Hmmmm,okay are still going to come tonight?”
He was about to respond when Kylie stripped to her bathing suit and stood in front of him seductively
“Errrmmmm,I don’t think I can come tonight I will just sleep here tho I will come very early tomorrow to prepare for work” he said without removing his eyes from Kylie he added
“You know what let’s continue our conversation tomorrow I have a serious matter at hand here that needs all my concentration” he ended the call and
walked up to Kylie to resume what they had earlier started.
Adanna wanted to speak but the call ended and she was so angry she flung her phone across the room and started screaming. She had no idea why she did it but it felt so nice screaming that she did again. She walked up to the dinning table where she had earlier arranged his food and pushed everything to the floor. Everything spilled and some plates broke making a loud bang but she did not seem to bother, she just walked up to her room and slept.
