The Unfaithful husband has episode 18 – 19


Written by Henry Zibima

Episode 18

He turned on the loud speaker and forced me to take the call in his presence.

“Hello, good evening ma”

“Good evening” she replied a bit coldly

“I am sure you know why I am calling”

“Yes ma, but please before you go on, I want to tell you something”

“What is it?” She asked over the line

Femi’s eyes w¡dened as he glared at me fearfully

“It’s about your husband, ma I don’t know how this will sound to you but the truth is bitter. Ma your husband has been begging me to…”

Femi immediately dragged the phone from me and ended the call

“I warned you but you wouldn’t listen, better pack whatever you want to pack, you are leaving this house; this night!” Femi said with terror.


“I’m not going anywhere, I will remain in this house till my aunt gets back” I said confidently

“Esther, you are trying me o, you are trying me. You better start packing now”

“Oh! So you think you can outsmart me. You want to send me away so that when my aunt returns you’ll cook up a fake story and spread false allegations against me”

“Esther go and pack your things, now! I can be very harmful o” Femi shouted

“I said I’m not going anywhere, if you think sending me away will conceal the truth then you have failed, you have terribly failed.

“Go to your room now”

I felt a strong force carry me from the sitting room where I was standing and landed me in the passage.

“Ah…you are wicked” I said crying, in my life I had never received such a push before. My back hurt seriously because I fell with it to the ground; I could feel a sudden intense spike of pain on my thigh.

“As you go in there; only pack up the things you came with to this house any other thing- whether it was bought or given to you as a gift from us; should be left behind. I gave you your chance and you better don’t waste time there afterall almost everything you have; we are the ones who got them for you” Femi said with so much contempt, I could see the hatred and disdain that filled his eyes.

Was it not the same person who never stopped taking about how he loves and cares for me; so all those were just sugar-coated words. He just said it but he never meant it; I just found it hærd to believe that it was the same Femi who was just pushed and even slapped me a while ago.

Frank’s POV

This night has just been so messed up; it’s a night we won’t easily forget – a night of chaos. No one would have ever thought that things would turn out this way, it would have been like every other night where have dinner, watch tv and go to bed. But for my dad’s overreaction, everything escalated; he wanted to undo Esther but she didn’t let it go down just like that.

If he had not been raining insults on her maybe she would have kept mute since I had already convinced her to see reasons with me. I listened closely from my room as everything played out like a tape before me, I couldn’t help Esther, I just remained in my room and decided to allow things happen the way nature has planned.

But the situation was getting intense; from the sounds I could hear I discerned that he was obviously beating her. What can I do to help; nothing; I can’t do anything because no matter what he still remains my dad. I can’t deny the fact that he will still be the one to take care me and provide for my needs in the future. Going there to stand up to him will be a very stupid thing to do m

So I let the events occur naturally.

Jennifer’s POV

I had barely arrived the hotel where all my colleagues and I logded when I started receiving multiple calls from my husband. I was very tired and I wanted to get to my hotel room before picking any calls.

I fell on the soft king-size bed with my hands widespread in the air; it was a very stressful day and I didn’t want any more form of stress. After coming home late we were expected to resume very early the next day; left alone for me I would have even gone straight to bed without eating or taking my bath.

My blissful rest was cut short by another of Femi’s calls, what could be the problem that he kept on calling me repeatedly. I knew something was definitely wrong somewhere because he hærdly drops a call to know how I’ve being faring.

“Hello, dear good evening” I said.

“Evening, how was work today?” He asked

“We thank God, this one you called today I hope all is well”

“How will you say such a thing, so are you saying I can’t call my wife just to speak with her”

“No it’s not like that, I’m just surprised that’s all”

“Well… there’s something serious I’d like to inform you about”

“I knew it, Femi so you can’t just call your wife to ask about her well-being”

“Will you at least listen to what I have to say”

“You can go on” I said slightly annoyed.

“If I tell you what I found out about your niece today, you won’t believe it”

“Which of my niece are you referring to”

“Esther of course; the wh0re you brought to live with us”

“Wh0re? Why are you calling her a wh0re”

“Do you know she came back home very late today, it was already nightfall and I was the one who went to go look for her. I was lucky enough to meet her on the way and right there something pushed me to collect her phone. If you see the kind of messages I saw; Jennifer you wouldn’t believe it”

“What were they about” I asked overwhelmed with curiosity.

“Do you know that this girl has not even been attending the lessons you paid for but has been going to see different men and have s3x with them under the cover of going for lessons”


“Will I be lieing to you?” Femi asked

“But I never knew Esther as that kind of person, I didn’t know she was capable of doing such a thing”

“My dear, with what I’ve seen today I can’t continue to live with her in the same house; that s3x machine; no way”

“Hmm… this is unbelievable” It was unlike the Esther I knew

“You have to believe it, that wh0re you call your niece has being going around sleeping with men. I can’t continue to live with such a person; you have to send her back to wherever she came from”

“We can’t just rush into decisions like that, at least get to know she would do such a thing.” I said.

“We have to act fast; I don’t trust that girl” Femi said and ended the call.

Wow, this is really too much for me to take in. Esther? The same Esther who her mother commended for being cautious with boys unlike her younger sister; that same Esther now sleeps with men? I needed to hear from her but I’ll have to bath and eat before doing that.


In about an hour time, I tried calling her line but it was Femi who picked up, he said he siezed her phone and that if I want to speak with Esther I’ll have to do that through his line.

“Hello, good evening ma” Esther said over the phone.

“Good evening” I replied

“I am sure you know why I am calling”

“Yes ma, but please before you go on, I want to tell you something”

“What is it?” I wondered what she had in mind to tell me after what she had done

“It’s about your husband” my husband? I said within myself

“Ma I don’t know how this will sound to you but the truth is bitter, your husband has been begging me to…”

All of a sudden, I was disconnected from the call, why would she end the call like that and leave me in so much suspense. I tried calling a few times but it proved abortive; then finally after some minutes Femi answered the call.

“Hello?” I said

“Hello” Femi replied

“Why did Esther end the call when I wasn’t done speaking with her”

“She didn’t, I did”

“Why would you end the call so abruptly?” I asked

“That’s not the problem now”

“Then what is?” I asked

“According to her, she wanted to tell me something about you; then that’s when you cut the call, Femi what is going on?”

“She wants to tell you lies about me because I made sure everything she was doing is brought to light. Do you know that that girl accused me of trying to have s3x with her?”

“Why would she do that”

“Can’t you see she is just trying to tarnish my image and put asunder to our marriage, that’s her mission in this home”

“Hmm… I don’t even know what to say anymore, I’m short of words but I haven’t even heard from Esther; at least I should hear from the horse’s mouth”

“You can’t speak with her” Femi said

“Why can’t I speak with her?”

“I won’t let you speak with her, she’ll fill you up with lies”

“Femi this your behavior is getting me suspicious o”

“Why would you be suspicious, I’m telling you that her plan is to ruin our marriage but you still don’t won’t to listen to me” Femi said now sounding very infuriated.

“I don’t see why you should be raising your voice; I just want to ask her some questions concerning the messages you saw in her phone”

“Since you’ve refused listen to me I’ll give her the phone but don’t blame me when something happens”

Esther’s POV

What do I do now that Femi has stopped me from talking to my aunt; that man is hell-bent on preventing me from saying the truth but nothing will stop me from exposing him. I racked my brain on what to do but no idea seems forthcoming.

I started folding the few clothes and shoes that I came with; I was beginning to lose hope. Maybe it was just my fate to remain in suffering, maybe it was just my destiny. Just when I saw a glimpse of hope for my future, I wasted it.


I was frightened to the core as Femi knocked violently on my door. I opened fearfully in anticipation of whatever was to come, he immediately handed over his phone to me; he was on a call… with my aunt. Finally; a ray of light.

“I’ve given her the phone, if you like believe whatever nonsense she tells you” Femi said and stormed out of sight. With the way he was acting and looking tensed; anyone around wouldn’t need an angel to know that he had done something wrong.

I couldn’t take chances, I immediately locked my room door because I don’t trust Femi.

“Hello ma”

“Hello Esther”

“Yes ma” I responded shyly

“Go ahead and tell me everything you wanted to tell me earlier about my husband”


Episode 19

I was frightened to the core as Femi knocked violently on my door. I opened fearfully in anticipation of whatever was to come, he immediately handed over his phone to me; he was on a call… with my aunt. Finally; a ray of light.

“I’ve given her the phone, if you like believe whatever nonsense she tells you” Femi said and stormed out of sight. With the way he was acting and looking tensed; anyone around wouldn’t need an angel to know that he had done something wrong.

I couldn’t take chances, I immediately locked my room door because I don’t trust Femi.

“Hello ma”

“Hello Esther”

“Yes ma” I responded shyly

“Go ahead and tell me everything you wanted to tell me earlier about my husband”


I couldn’t believe it was time to finally let the cat out of the bag, it was time for me to finally open up. God has smiled on me, I remained speechless for a while; not because I didn’t have anything to say but because of the freedom I owned at the moment; I was now free to tell my aunt everything and there’ll be no one to prevent me from saying the truth.

“Esther, I’m I not talking to you”

“Sorry…yes ma”

“Why then the sudden quietness”

“Nothing” I replied.

“Then go ahead and start talking”

But as I was about speaking, a thought suddenly dawned on me; will I be doing the right thing, what do I stand to gain if I expose Femi, Frank would be very mad at me, my aunt may not even believe me. Even if she does; won’t it ruin her marriage. I’m beginning to rethink what I intend doing. I was thrusted up from my thoughts by aunt Jenny’s voice

“Esther, will you start talking”

I tried my best to hold back the words but they were immediately forced out of my l¡ps “Ma your husband has been disturbing me to have s3x with him” I said hurriedly.

“So my husband was right, so your plan is to scatter my marriage”

“No, ma all I’m saying is the truth”

“So when did he start such behavior? Is it when I travelled” She asked doubtfully.

“No; It has been very long ma, not long after I started living with you”

“And you refused to tell me, if you’re actually saying the truth where then were you guys supposed to carry out the act?”

“In a hotel ma, but even this night he begged me to have s3x with him in your room”

“What??” She s¢ræmed.

“You mean on my matrimonial bed?”

“Yes ma”

“Then what did you do”

“I refused ma”

“Esther if all these things really happened then why didn’t you tell me long ago? Why now? Why is it when he finds out you have been sleeping around with different men and for you to have the courage to have multiple s3x partners you definitely wouldn’t mind sleeping with a married man”

“Ma I’m sorry for not telling you long ago but you have to believe me”

“Do you know the gravity of what you just told me; it’s not an easy thing to believe. I have to make my own findings.”

“Ok ma but I’m sorry to ask; what did you mean by multiple s3x partners?”

“Don’t worry yourself, I already know about everything you’ve been doing, my husband informed me about the messages he saw from your customers”

“Which customers, l don’t understand you very much. All those messages were sent to me from my boyfriend and most of them never happened; He was just teasing me; I’m a v×rgiπ” I blurted out loud.

“v×rgiπ? How is that possible, when my husband says you’ve been sleeping around with men for money”

“JESUS, me? Esther sleep with men for money” I sniffled quietly as tears welled from deep in,side and coursed down my cheek.

My vision became blur due to tears that covered my eyes, so Femi is this wicked; how would he tell such a lie against me. Why would he do such a thing; that me Esther has been sleeping with men for money when I’ve not even slept with my boyfriend. Isn’t that the work of a pr0stitute, so Femi told my aunt I’m a prostituté and she believed him.

“Ma it’s a lie, I never did such, there’s nothing like that on my phone; ma please you have to believe me.” I pleaded

“Your husband is just trying to get back at me because I turned him down.” I said trying to prevent her from knowing I was already in tears.

“So are you saying my husband is telling lies”

“That’s the hurtful truth” I responded.

“If you are saying the truth then this is actually bigger than what I thought. You know what; I’ll try to see if I can come tommorow so we’ll sort this out”

“Okay ma, please do.”

“It’s alright, just give the phone back to my husband” she said and ended the call.

Even after telling her, I still couldn’t believe I just did. Although I wasn’t able to go in details since it was a phonecall; I’ll make sure I tell her every single thing when she gets back. I need to clear my name.

Jennifer’s POV

I don’t even know who or what to believe anymore, a lot of contradicting stories. I’m just so short of words but my instincts keep telling me that Esther’s the one telling the truth. I’ll have to go home tommorow, because of the matter on ground I’ll be left with no option than to lie to my boss- I really need to find out what is going on in my home.

But if Esther is right, I’ll be emotionally broken. Femi who hærdly has s3x with me, begging my nineteen year old niece for s3x. What an insult; I need to speak with him right away. I patiently listened to the beeping sound of his line from the caller end while waiting for him to pick up.

“Hello Femi”

“Yes?” he answered impolitely

“Femi how could you, how could you stoop so low; I always had my suspicion but I never thought you could stoop this low to beg my niece, Femi your wife’s niece who is just nineteen for s3x. Femi I’m ashamed of you”

“Woman will you stop saying rubbish, I warned not to listen to that lieing devil but you refused and now you believe her. Why would you even believe such a thing in the first place? Isn’t it obvious that she is just trying to make sure our marriage is put asunder”

“You know what, this is not something we’ll discuss over the phone; I’ll be coming tommorow so we can handle this issue properly” I said, hung up and immediately and turned on flight mode; I’d been tossed up and down enough for one night.

Frank’s POV

A lot was happening between my dad and Esther and I needed to see for myself what was really going on. I quietly opened my door and tiptoed like a thief to Esther’s room. She immediately opened the door as I was about knocking as if she knew I would be coming

“Geez! Frank, you startled me”

“I’m sorry; I didn’t mean to”

“It’s okay, I was even hoping you would come. Please help me take this phone to your dad, please I don’t want any trouble” she said with her palms joined together in a praying posture.

“Okay” I took the phone from her and went to my dad’s room, I knocked on the door and he opened and took the phone from me without even saying a word. I immediately rushed back to Esther’s room to know what was happening. I had barely sat down when I began asking questions.

“Have you spoken with my mom? What did you tell her? What did she say?”

“I’ve spoken with her and I told her the truth” she said.

“What truth” I asked interrogatively

“That your dad has been demanding for séx from me”

“What have you done? If you wanted to expose my dad why didn’t you do it since, why now”

“I don’t understand you, what do you mean?”

“You only think about yourself, Esther you lack concern for others. If my parents marriage falls into shambles I will never forgive you”

“Frank why are you saying all these, you should put yourself in my shoes; trust me you would have done the same thing”

“You caused all this, you refused to shun him when you had the chance, you let the problem escalate into something more serious before you began taking action. Finally he stopped bothering you,; then because of your carelessness you gave him a reason to blackmail you and you felt the best way out is to destroy my parent’s marriage”

“That is not my intention, I just wanted your mom to be aware; you need to put yourself in my shoes, what do you expect me to do; please see reasons with me”

“What is there to see aside from the fact that you’re just being selfish” I said terribly annoyed m

“You are the only selfish person here” Esther replied. “You don’t even care about my feelings; you only care about your parents’marriage”

“You know what; I regret the day you started living with us because since you came you have done more harm than good”

“Frank I have done more harm than good?… Well if you are right; none of this would have happened if I never even came here in the first place” She said very downcast

I never wanted to reply her; I was just about walking out on her when I suddenly noticed how puffy her eyes were, I took a closer look and I noticed they were very red.

“Were you crying” I asked pitifully

“No, please leave me alone” she said sobbing

“Look, I’m very sorry if my words may have hurt you; but please do not pay any attention to the things I just said; that’s how I usually speak without thinking whenever I’m angry. Please I’m sorry”

“Frank there’s no need to apologise; you are right, it’s all my fault” she said im a shaky voice.

I felt very bad for her, Esther was struggling with her emotions and instead of helping; I worsened things.

“Please clean your face up and go to bed, all hope isn’t lost; tommorow will be another day to make things right.” I said trying my best to encourage her

Femi’s POV

I couldn’t believe what just happened, I remained motionless as soon as my wife ended the call; my limbs seemed to have become lifeless. So Esther really had the guts to expose me to my wife; I can’t even believe it. My main promblem right now isn’t that my wife found out but the consequence it would have on my reputation and my job.

Ah! I exclaimed, this girl has gotten me into trouble; Esther that I’ve been underestimating; she thinks she can go scot-free. I will make sure I teach her a lesson she will never forget.

“Esther! Where is she? Today you will regret been born” I shouted as I walk furiously towards her room.
