Adanna was lost in thoughts as Adams drove her to go see a divorce attorney his friend told him about. Who could have thought that she and Samuel will ever reach this point? She always knew he was not perfect but she loved him like that. This past month has been the worst in her life, every morning she woke up to see a new article about her and Samuel and just went she thought this nightmare was over,Kylie decided to release official photos from her wedding with Samuel and as if that was not enough last night Samuel posted pictures of Kylie’s baby bum on his social his social media pages and the circle started all over again,her name was being brought up almost everywhere and now there is a new theory that Samuel got married to someone else because she could not give birth. One blog even went as far as
stating that they were told by a close family source that Adanna had earlier had six miscarriages and that after the last one she told her husband to marry someone else that will give him children. She couldn’t believe people will go this far just to get clicks on their blogs and it didn’t help that a lot of bloggers also ran the story too. Right now every medical blogger in the country was giving her advice and tips that will lead to a successful childbirth.
She had chosen to be quiet all this while
because she just wanted this thing to die a natural death but its as if someone or something keep stroking the fire and is adding more to the flames, maybe she was wrong for keeping quiet all this while for goodness
sake she ran an empowerment website,how can she who tell people on the daily not to be afraid is just dumb not knowing what step to take. She hasn’t posted on her blog since the fiasco started and when she tried
checking her mails all she saw were concerned emails from fans and some sadists who seem to think she deserved what was happening to her at the moment. Maybe she should just post on her blog her own side of the story maybe everyone will just leave her alone.
“We are here” Adams said as he parked the car. They both got out of the car and walked into the building together and was ushered in by the receptionist into an office where the were told to wait for the attorney.
Some few minutes later a very beautiful lady walked
“Sorry to keep you waiting, I had something urgent to carry out” she said as she took her seat across them and continued ” My name is Ehi Agbo and you are welcome to my office,do you care for any drink? ” she asked
“No,thank you” Adams replied while he looked at Adanna who nodded her head at him
“Okay then let’s go straight into business”
Some seconds went by in silence and Adams decided to take charge
“My name is Adams Eko and the Lady beside me is Adanna Kombol,we got your contact from David Adeke he told me you were the person to talk to, if we wanted a swift and good divorce”
“Oh,so you guys want an amicable divorce?”
“No,I mean yes but am not the one she is divorcing its her husband am just her neighbour” he said and exchanged glances with Adanna who sat still like
“Okay, I get you. So Mrs Kombol I will like to know why you want a divorce.from your husband”
“He married another lady”
“Okay,do you know this Lady he got married to? “
“Yes,she was my friend”
“I see,was there any kind of violence while you were married to Mr Kombol?”
“None, he has never la!d his hands on me”
“How long have you been married to him?”
“Does my husband have any right to any property I own during the period of our marriage let’s say for instance like a car?” She replied,looking nervously at Ehi
“Well if your car was during the marriage and is considered marital property in that case it will be distributed in your divorce. This does not mean he will get it,just that the car must be considered in the property
division and you can ask to keep it. Tho in a situation where you owned the car prior to your marriage then its not a marital property. Have I answered your question?
“Then why don’t you look at ease,am not a child so why don’t you go on and tell me what property exactly you are talking about?”
“Well,errrm the thing here is that we have been married for three years and I have never gotten a job because my husband said it wasn’t necessary and some months back I started this blog and now he is telling me he will drag my blog with me is that possible?”
“Well it depends,if there is a signed contract somewhere between the two of you or if he can prove he financially sustained the blog”
“Okay,there is no contract tho and the money I used or should I say I have been using for my blog is mine,like over the years I have been over to save a little money on the side and that’s what I have been using”
“Then he doesn’t have a claim on your blog,truth is so long as he doesn’t have any proof or contract,he doesn’t have a case but even he tries to pull anything I think with what you have told me we could easily throw his claims out of court that is if you want me to represent you”
“Of course I want you to represent me that’s why am here”
“Okay, first we need to go over some details then we can proceed to file for separation”
“No I want to go straight to divorce”
“Wow,so there is no changing your mind then,if that’s what you want then that’s what we will do” she replied and pulled out a file from her desk and proceeded to ask them some questions and jot some points down,it didn’t
take long and she assured them that the next time they see they will cover the basis and can start the court proceedings. They left her office satisfied and had a quick lunch at a restaurant on their way home.
On reaching her house,they got the surprise of their life when they discovered Kylie had moved in and Samuel was also in the house . Judging from the way there were relaxed and watching a movie,it was obvious they
have been around for a while. Adanna let go of Adams hands and walked in front of them
“What is going on here?”
“Hello soon to be ex wife,where have you been?”
“You did not answer my question?”
“Do I need to have a reason to be in my house madam?”
“You have five seconds for both of you to carry your filthy selves and leave my house”
“Excuse me Adanna who do you think you are to disrespect us like that” replied Kylie who stood up and lounged towards Adanna
“Respect yourself and take your big stomach out of my way,this is between my husband and I”
“Girl you don’t seem to get the memo you are now old news adiós cargo get lost” she replied and slapped Adanna who in turn shoved her across the room,she stumped out of the sitting room and into the kitchen.
Somi had been interviewing Kylie and Samuel when she became pressed and had to use the bathroom. She was just cleaning herself up when she heard angry voices coming from the house, she quickly left the bathroom and went to see what the commotion was all about,she hid behind a pillar and peeped to see who were the people involved and lo and behold it was Kylie and Adanna exchanging words. She knew she was betraying Kylie’s trust but juicy news like this don’t come everyday and since she had her handbag with her,she
quietly brought out her phone and started recording,this will definitely rock the media and its just perfect that this exclusive will come from her.
Adanna dashed into the kitchen and hurriedly went to shelves where they kept their knifes and carried one and rushed back outside.
Pointing the knife at Samuel and Kylie she said “You have five seconds to leave now if
not the next thing attached to your names will be RIP” she screamed while mobing towards them.
Kylie who was afraid hid behind Samuel “You cannot do anything,senseless woman,you think you are strong come,
I wonder if you think that knife with make us fear you or what?” She said still hiding behind him.
“One,two,three,four” replied Adanna as she kept walking towards them
Adams who had been standing like a statue quickly sprung to life as he realised that if he did not act or intervene Adanna was going to do something she will regret. Walking towards her he said “Adanna please put the knife down,it hasn’t reached that point yet,don’t do something you will end up regretting, just drop the knife and we can settle this like adults,please am begging you” he slowly walked towards her,with his hands spread.
Adanna heard what Adams said but every emotion she had hidden this past few weeks just came flowing back and seeing the reason for her pain,she just wanted to end everything, was it so much to ask for, why don’t they just leave her and she put an end to all this once and for all,if she killed them then everything will just be over. She wanted to walk up to them and just do like her mind is telling her but for some reasons she just stood where she was,maybe it was because she couldn’t bring herself to do it. Breathing hard and taking nervous steps towards them she said “Am not going to repeat what I said,leave now”
Raising his hands and slowly walking towards the door with Kylie behind him,Samuel said “We are leaving but this is far from being over, sometimes I can’t believe I really stay with your crazy butt0ckz all this years am surprised you didn’t kill me in my sleep” He opened the door and Kylie went out and he turned and faced Adams
“She might look pretty but she is nothing more than a wolf in a sheep clothing be warned”
“Get out before I loose control” Adanna said
“So you still had a little bit of control left,hmmm I never knew”
Before it could get any further Adams replied Samuel “look I think its best you leave right now”
“Of course I will,do I look like I want to stay under a roof with a mad woman?” He said and giving a mock salute he left.
Adams walked up to Adanna and took the knife from her and dropped on the table and pulled her close,with his hands on both her cheeks he told her “Stop letting them get into your head, you need to be strong,it won’t be long all these will be old news”
“Am so afraid” she replied
“Don’t be you are not alone” he said and wrapped his hands around her shoulders. Out of the corner of his eyes he saw a movement from the corner of the room
“Who are you?” He asked the lady who he can now see in full view but instead of replying she ran out of the house.
Adanna who only saw the lady saw the lady from behind as she ran out asked “Do you know her?”
“No,I don’t” he replied still looking at the door as if the lady will magically walk back in.
” Do you think she saw everything that just happened? “
“I really don’t know,I only saw her now but I don’t think we should be worried her,we don’t know her and I don’t think she can cause any more harm than already been done.
You know what let’s just forget about this episode,
why don’t you go up and freshen up and then we will just go somewhere and chill”
“OK” she replied and left
