…I looked at myself,and wondered how it all got to that point…I had no much money, because Tobe’s supermarket shook my account.i told Tobe I had been sacked but she didn’t care.soon the little money I had got finished, because I had to take care of mama and myself. I started looking for a job, of course to get a job in the big and busy city of Lagos was no small task. I searched and searched and searched but couldn’t find any.
On the other hand, Cassandra was still on my case, she kept calling and disturbing me,it was no point asking how she got my number, she must have taken it from Tobe’s phone.
My life became a mess, drinking became my companion,I was exiting not living.K was really a friend,he was giving me some cash every now and then,at some point I even became shy to ask or collect from him.
One evening I only remember i went to a bar, waking up the next morning,it was in Cassandra’s bed room she was by my side and we were both nked.what happened? how did I get myself in here?,what have you done,I asked Cassandra…Excuse you,what have we done you mean.well we had a passionate night together,we made love all through the night, you are such a real man,I mean you handled me like I have never been handled in my life,it was the best I have everrrrrr,stop it,I shouted.how in heaven’s name did you allow this to happen, knowing fully well I was under the influence of alcohol, how could you….
Oh please spare me that bullsht,she interrupted me.you and I know you wanted it too, your wife has not been giving you and you know it,so enough of the drama,she said..
But how,how did you find me,I asked her.well,I was coming back home,when I saw a waiter dragging you and asking you to pay for the drinks you had consumed,and for you to leave the bar, apparently you had no money on you.hence I paid,, knowing you didn’t come with your car as it is faulty,I decided I take you home.getting to my house,you wouldn’t expect me to allow you sleep on my bed with those shoes of yours,so I lay you on the bed,and was unlacing your shoes,all of a sudden you lifted me up and started kssing me,like you had waited all your life to do that,so,I had to reciprocate the passion.she said smiling…
Well there is no need to be sorry, because I totally enjoyed it,you are simply all I thought you were and more.she said happily.
I dressed up and hurried out.i was so ashamed of myself.i didn’t know what to do,or how to go about it, Cassandra is my wife’s best friend.how would she take it.nevertheless,I concluded I was going to tell Tobe…
She came home late as usual,I stayed up late waiting for her,so I could tell her what had happened and ask for her forgiveness,,,I wouldn’t want her finding out herself..
she got home at about 10:50pm.welcome honey,I greeted,but she didn’t answer,honey please I have something to tell you,spare me some minutes offffff,please,hold it,she interrupted me,I don’t have time to listen to your cock and bull story,I am very exhausted,and I don’t have time for irrelevant talks.she said and walked out on me..
It was Christmas,mama came to celebrate with us as she always do,I didn’t have any money on me,I pleaded with Tobe to please stock the house with food,I was totally broke,at least to cover my shame before my mother.how can I possibly not be able to serve mama something on a Christmas. I pleaded with her.well she can take up the feeding, Tobe said.
Mama came 24th and there was a little beans and yam I had managed to cook, Tobe didn’t come till very late at night even when she knew mama would be around.she got home 11:50,what happened honey, did you forget mama was coming today I asked her,she didn’t answer me,but went to the guest room.
It was Christmas, Tobi got dressed and left without dropping a dine at home,I felt my whole life was shattered,mama understood everything that was happening, unfortunately she wasn’t surprised,for she warned me.mama and I sat down in the sitting room, nobody was talking,when we heard a knock at the door,it was Cassandra.what in the name of heaven are you doing here,I asked her,she didn’t answer me,but went to mama to greet her,mama welcome,you are so beautiful,now I understand where Temitope got his cuteness.mama smiled,who are you my daughter,mama asked her,I am Cassandra, Tobechukwu’s friend,,, immediately mama heard that she became sad,oh no mamma,I am nothing like her,,,,I have talked and talked,but she doesn’t want to change,I know what’s going on,trust me mama your son doesn’t deserve any of these, he’s too nice to be with such a wife.but unfortunately he loves her too much to realize she’s taking him for a fool.as I speak now, she’s with her ex in his hotel room, that’s the reason she’s not here.infact, she’s doesn’t go to the shop anymore, she’s always with Mike,and am surerrrr, Cassandra shut up, what’s is your problem,get out of my house,no you shut up Temitope,what is wrong with you,how can you be so foolish,and allow a woman under your roof commit adultery,what has that Omoigbo done to you,mama shouted…
I went into the bedroom but couldn’t take my head off what Cassandra had said.my wife has been seeing her lover,I remembered she even called the name of the hotel.so I decided to see things for my self.Cassandra had left some money,about 20000,saying Incase we needed anything,I took part of it and went to the hotel,I was wearing a hoodie top, covering my head,and a dark glass.i sat somewhere in the bar having some drinks,but been concious not to get drunk.after some few hours,I saw my wife and a guy,the said mike I guess,walked to the receptionist,we shall be back,just want to see a movie or two,they said and drove off in my wife’s car,I mean the car I bought with my hard earned money…
I went to the receptionist and stylishly asked about them,oh those two,they are wonderful couple,so loving, they’ve been here for some time….
Oh really, that’s great.i paid for my drinks and went home BROKEN.
