BY AMAH’S h£ART.
h£ stood th£re star!ng at h¡s wife, anger was written all over h¡m.
It seems like enternity before h£ looked over at Jerome.
h£ bent h¡s face and th£y thought h£ was j√$t go!ng to turn [email protected]¢k and leave but !nstead h£ jumped on Jerome surpris!ngly began punch!ng h¡m everywh£re, while at it h£ was curs!ng and ₱v||!ng at h¡s tie, try!ng to suffocate h¡m.
Jerome managed to ₱v|| away from h¡m as h£ tries to return th£ several b!0w but Silaz was a far better fighter than h£ is.
h£ b**t up Jerome who kept call!ng security to come to h¡s rescue.
Luc!nda was begg!ng Silaz to let h¡m go but Silaz was not done deal!ng with h¡m yet.
“You pretend to be a friend not know!ng you’re only !nterested !n my wife…”
h£ slapped h¡m [email protected] and cont!nued hitt!ng h¡m and say!ng ” …I told you ab©vt my marital crisis, I told you because I thought you’re a friend. How could you do th¡s to me, how long has th¡s been go!ng on? I take my marriage problem to you, I d!ne and w!ne with my worst enemy th!nk!ng h£’s a friend. I allowed my wife to come work !n your company because I thought $h£ was safe….”
h£ walked round th£ table !n rage, scatter!ng and ₱ush!ng everyth!ng h£ [email protected] h¡s eyes on to th£ ground, !nclud!ng Jerome’s office laptop and important do¢vments.
“…I thought you were different, I thought wrong and you must have taken me for a fool. I agree, I’m very stupid to have allowed you !nto our lives and homes. Look at what trust and my ¢ar£lessness has caused me. You were busy sleep!ng with my wife under my nose…?
h£ paused and looked at Luc!nda
“… now it all beg!n!ng to make s£nse. Th£ day I decided to surprise my wife by return!ng from my bus!ness journey unexpected… $h£ was with you right? You lied and said your Mom and th£ lady $h£ brought for you to marry were |ns!de. I later went [email protected]¢k !n and all of a sudden Luc!nda came ©vt of your apartment. I knew from th£n that someth!ng was fishy among you two but I j√$t bluntly refused to believe it. Th£ truth I seek was star!ng me !n th£ face but I j√$t decided to ignore. I didn’t want to believe it because I wanted to give you benefit of doubt, I choose to trust my wife and trust you but both of you have successfvlly threw my stupid self to th£ ground. You have done th£ very th!ng I have always been afraid off. So, you’re th£ so called client that got h£r such an expensive car? Oh…it was you right? You people must have taken me for a fool. I’m actually very foolish to have ignored th£ red flag. Jerome for do!ng th¡s to me anoth£r man will do it to your wife wh£never you get married… and you will feel th£ exact pa!n I’m feel!ng right now. You won’t escape it except you choose not to get married. [email protected]¢k stabber like you…”
h£ kicked h¡m [email protected] and Jerome s¢r**med, call!ng security to come quickly.
Luc!nda ¢ar£fvlly approach h£r husband and said amidst tears ” is not what you th!nk my love, Jerome and I didn’t really get !ntimate…it didn’t go beyond klzz!ng and smooch!ng, I can swear it if you want, I’m say!ng th£ truth honey. I can return th£ car and everyth!ng h£ got for me if that will make you happy and believe me that I’m sorry… please.
Silaz laugh£d hysterically
“You still have th£ m©vth to refer to me as your love? Shameless woman… noth!ng I do is ever enough. Everyth!ng I practically did, my [email protected] work and sweat is j√$t to make you happy. Luc!nda, have I ever deny you anyth!ng, even if I can’t afford it immediately I will strive, add extra efforts j√$t to give it to you. I plan gett!ng you your dream car but needed a little time and patience but you were impatient and your lover got it for you !nstead, a car that’s far bigger and expensive than what I would have gotten though and you lied ab©vt it, rob it on my face because I’m not as rich as you wish. Jerome is your spec now right? I confronted you severally with your sudden adopted life style, I suspected you were see!ng anoth£r man but each time I br!ng up th£ topic you will deny and turn it !nto a fight. F!nally, th£ exact th!ng you lied ab©vt is now a reality. Your dirty secret deeds is now ©vt !n th£ open. You need to hide your face !n shame but aga!n s!nce you’re a shameless woman, you obviously have noth!ng to hide. All th£ time h£ was busy call!ng you Lucy, s!ng!ng your praises and call!ng you my biggest achievement, you were busy warm!ng h¡s b£d. You got no iota of shame sleep!ng with your neighbor, or should I say your boss. h£ was shower!ng you with lots of expensive gifts and I was stupid enough to ignore th£ enemy with!n. S!nce I haven’t been a good husband and Jerome is a better man than I am… you are f!nally free to do as you please. Because I want noth!ng with you…”
Luc!nda was begg!ng h¡m to forgive h£r while Jerome was busy sh©vt!ng “…yes, I’m a better man than you are. I can take ¢ar£ of h£r far better than you will ever do. Lucy will be happy and safe with me than $h£ is with…”
Before h£ will complete what h£ was ab©vt to say Silaz landed h¡m anoth£r b!0w.
Jerome retaliated before sh©vt!ng “securities” aga!n
Th£ securities arrived j√$t !n time to wh¡sk Silaz away.
“You want h£r right…? You can go ah£ad and have h£r. $h£ is all yours Jerome… evil neighbor, [email protected]¢kstabber, enemy of progress. You cannot go and get your own wife because you’re a weaken!ng, you will rath£r steal anoth£r man’s own, shameless amoeba like you. My God will do to you as you have done to me…karma will pay you a visit soon. j√$t watch and see. Mark my every word it will happen, except my name is not Silaz aga!n…”
Th£y led h¡m ©vt of th£ build!ng, h£ angrily got !nto h¡s car and left.
Luc!nda face Jerome.
“How did h£ even get to know what was go!ng on and came right !n with©vt anyone stopp!ng h¡m…”
“Well I won’t lie, I did it. I used anoth£r number to tip h¡m off and I !nformed my security and receptionist not to stop h¡m wh£n h£ comes. I describ£d h¡m to th£m..”Jerome said with pride as h£ m©v£d closer to Luc!nda while robb!ng h¡s arm wh£re Silaz had hit.
“Why will you do that Jerome? You promised to cover your part and I do th£ same, why will you b!0w it all off. h£’s my husband for cry!ng ©vt…”
“And what am I to you? You saw what h£ did to me, I took several b!0ws because of you and did not retaliate until th£ last b!0w. I have done a lot of th!ngs to prove how much I love and want you !n my life but at th£ end you keep putt!ng h¡m first and [email protected] acknowledge me. Everyth!ng you asked of me I do no matter how !nconvenience it may be…yet, you will rath£r choose Silaz over me. What do you want that I haven’t done? Let h¡m go, I love you and ready to do anyth!ng to have you…”
Luc!nda started h£ad!ng to th£ door.
$h£ pause by th£ door and said
“You desire my b©dy and admire my beauty. That’s not love… you’re only lvst!ng after me Jerome, let’s tell ourselves th£ truth. Silaz love me for real, h£ is a nice man and does not deserve th¡s. h£ didn’t marry me because of j√$t my beauty, h£ married me because h£ truly ¢ar£s and love me. I look ¢ar£d for and flashy because Silaz makes sure of that…”
“I can b**t Silaz to everyth!ng if you will give me a chance Lucy…” Jerome said
“I have to go after my husband first. Will let you know whatever h£ decided. Please, try not to come or call, you have done enough harm by !nvit!ng h¡m h£re to catch us !n th£ act. Hope you’re feel!ng like a h£ro now? My marriage is at stake. Silaz may never forgive me because of you”
$h£ angrily stormed ©vt, ignor!ng whatever Jerome was say!ng.
$h£ went straight !nto h£r car and zoomed off.
