Sandra was emotionally torn apart by what she had just seen, She shed tears like a baby without heeding to her husband’s plea. The sudden brokenness directed her conscience to grab Lawrence belongings and fit it into a suit case and she threw all his belongings outside.
“All my life, I have sacrificed my comfort just for you and me to share the best of a lifetime. I have done what it takes to be a good wife and this is how you soil our matrimonial bed? This is how you repay me? you have the guts to sleep with another woman not just anywhere but on our matrimonial room! Disgusting! I can never forgive you, it’s over between us …”
slowly in tears she walked towards her husband, who took few steps back away from her. He was so scared and ashamed, he had never been caught, he had always been unfaithful to Sandra.
“Sandra , please, for the sake of Nathan, our only son, please don’t do this. Forgive me and let’s settle this peacefully” Lawrence grew humble with his negotiation.
He tried all the nice words to pacify Sandra. “Get out of here and never return, you shameless man, it’s over between us, you are wicked and shameless, you are very dumb, how could you bring in your lover into our bed” Sandra said with rage in her eyes, Her anger couldn’t be tamed by the arms or by the sweet words of her husband.
She pushed him outside, in the direction she threw his belongings earlier. Lawrence grew so humble and soft, Sandra picked up a sharp knife from the kitchen and threatened to stab him and herself if he comes closer to her again, “How could you do this to me, I hate you Lawrence, go away” Sandra yelled. Nathan shivered in the couch.
“Mom, Dad!” Nathan called out in fear.
“What!!!” sandra shouted at her son. Nathan saw fire in his mother’s eyes amidst the tears, Sandra’s love for Lawrence was broken even the respect she had for him, vanished, Lawrence saw fury in his wife’s eyes and he decided to go away. From that day Sandra became a different woman.
How Lawrence’s lover who he was smooching on his matrimonial bed managed to escape the fury of Sandra is still a mystery but she was lucky that she escaped right on time before Sandra’s thoughts and attention went to her.
This is the day Nathan’s nightmare started. This pain of an adulterous husband installed a different personality in Sandra, Since that day, Her reactions towards Nathan changed, and her language became bitter and cruel,
Sandra and Lawrence got divorced. Nathan lived in a broken home and with his mother. Even though She remained unmarried regardless, The love she had for her son diminish by the day. Anytime she saw Nathan, she saw Lawrence in him- and directed her rage at her son.
Not a single day passed without her referring to his father in relation to whatever Nathan did.
“You are just like your father. Why are you this foolish! If you don’t take care, you are going to end up like your father. Useless! Use your head, No wonder, you are heartless just like your father, stupid boy…” Sandra always told Nathan
These dark words registered into Nathan’s mind, controlled his thinking and esteem with time, He grew up sipping those cruel words each day and night. He began to accept that he was dumb, worthless and heartless. They cut him deep into his heart. The bond between a mother and a child subconsciously held the power to influence a child’s life especially with the mother’s words.
