THE HOUSEMAID DISASTER
Sonia couldn’t help but stare at the devil incarnate Ebere who flashed her teeth at several intervals in a wicked smile. At times she exposed them like someone who brushed with omo telling the whole world to see. To her, they were smiles of satifaction. Her revenge on Angela was almost at it’s climax.
“I called you to discuss something important with you” Sonia opened up, bitterness written all over her.
Ebere tilted her head to one side, stole another glance at her and said “I’m all ears”
Sonia felt like strangling her to death with the bitterness and pain boiling in her.
“Aren’t you done with me yet?
Can’t you let me go in peace now?
Haven’t i been sleeping with your bestfriend’s husband as you wished?”Sonia asked.
“What kind of a girl are you anyway? You saw a means inorder to get what you want and help your mother and you are rejecting it. I haven’t seen a case where a person spat out the sugar put in his mouth……….”
“I’m pregnant for crying out loud. I’m pregnant” Sonia bursted with tears gathered in her eyes. Bravely, she blinked them back but deep inside she was crying out her heart.
“Wow, great, that is what i want my dear. I am so happy. Get ready to become the new Mrs David. Forget about Angela I will take care of her, She must pay for what she did to me” Ebere stressed out.
Sonia smiled for the first time and shook her head.
“You claim to be a friend but you are an enemy. A betrayer…..”
“Don’t address me in such rude manners….”
“I will, I will and i will. Again, again and again” Sonia hauled, hitting her fist on the little side stool besides her drawing the attention of people. “I think its high time we all take responsibilities for our crimes. I am ready to accept mine, get ready to accept yours. I’m terminating this pregnancy. Thanks for ruining my life. Soon, i will call it quits with this job and face whatever comes my way, I think its better that way. You have used me enough trying to destroy a union. If i go to jail, so be it. If mrs Angela kills me for betraying her trust by sleeping with her husband day in day out, i deserve it” ***She couldn’t fight the tears anymore as they finally found their way down her cheeks but she was determined. She stood up to leave.
“Maybe you need to sleep to regain your senses” Ebere said as she watched the furious Sonia storm out of her presence.
Immediately Sonia left, Ebere’s phone rang, It was Angela.
“Heloo, how is my Angel doing?” She spoke into the phone.
“Besty, i’m fine.There is this red dress, I don’t know if you would like it” Angela replied.
“You know the kind of dress i cherish” Ebere giggled.
“Sure, this is one of them” They laughed over the phone.
Since Angela got married, she never forgot Ebere whenever she went to buy dresses and shoes. Even colourful handbags.
Angela was in the sitting room and David was yet to return from work. Sonia noticed she was not in her happy mood, She went up to her and sat by her side.
“Aunty, i hope there is no problem” She asked. Angela did not say anything, She called out to her the second time, startling Angela who was far away in thoughts.
“Aunty what is the problem?” She asked again.
“Just today,a woman caught her best friend with her husband on the bed in a hotel. Someone who saw them move into the hotel alerted her. She went with a knife and stabbed her friend who died instantly. Now the poor woman is in police custody and I just pity her” She narrated.
Sonia was taken aback by the story. She thought for a while.
“That is a bad incident. But Aunty, tell me if you were the woman what would you have done?” Sonia asked carefully.
Angela smiled and shook her head.
“My husband???????? No no, I can even look for a gun, and surely i must shoot that friend of mine. I dont care what happens next” Angela answered confidently, instilling enormous fears on Sonia whom it took great effort to hide the fears.
“She can never get away with it. I must teach her the lesson of her life. I can share anything with anybody else but not my husband” Angela added further.
Sonia only nodded as Angela said those words and she knew the kind lady meant every bit of her words.
Please what should i do? “Sonia asked”
