Risen Devils, Fallen Angel
Yes bro, she will. Just freshen up. Joojo faked happiness.
Selorm in a bit of surprise slowed behind his wife into the bedroom.
In minutes, they came back and Angela served his food.
She fed him till he was full.
Joojo looked on in a mixed feeling.
I love to see Selorm happy, but now, I ought to pay for his happiness in a way that murders his soul. God, please make a way. He sadly thought.
Angela pampered Selorm till they both went inside to sleep.
Throughout that week, it was happiness reloaded on Selorm’s part whiles Joojo wept every night.
Soon, it was another week, and Angela sneaked into Joojo’s room again for s£x.
Angela, I will like to plead with you in God’s name to forgive me of everything my family has done to you. Joojo sadly spoke.
Why are you talking like this Joojo? Did I ever complain anything to you? She asked.
Angela, you didn’t, but I really feel everything isn’t alright. Because if it is, I don’t know why you will overlook my marriage with you and get married to another man who happens to be my brother. Joojo began.
And I also don’t know why you have suddenly dropped out of school. Again, I don’t know the reason behind your sudden change of name and why you guys got married in the Volta region instead of Ashanti. Joojo added.
Joojo, even though I don’t owe you any explanation, for the sake of old times, I will explain myself to you.
Now listen to me, I never for once knew Selorm as your brother because, you didn’t in any way introduce him to me.
Again, I overlooked my marriage with you because, I married you out of frustration and emotions. I was actually waiting for your come back so we get divorced and fortunately, I met Selorm.
Joojo, I knew my marriage with you wouldn’t work, because your brother was against us.
Moreover, I dropped out of school because I felt I was wasting my time. So I got my friend’s certificate who bears the name Emefa and sought employment in a company which I didn’t know belonged to your family.
Joojo, like I told you, due to my child, I have never gotten a man to love me, so I had no option than to do what I did.
I was living happily with your brother before you came back from the States.
And you know why I have suddenly resorted to maltreating Selorm after I realized he was your brother? That is because he stole my happiness away! My happiness of being with you instead of him! Angela explained.
Angela, I take this opportunity to apologize to you on his behalf. He is sorry, he only wanted the best for me. Joojo pleaded.
The best? Joojo, did I hear you say that?
So that means, any woman who has given birth outside wedlock isn’t worth loving right? She quizzed.
Well Joojo, it is pay back time! A time to make your brother feel the exact pain I went through when he turned down our marriage plans. She angrily spoke.
Angela please! I am begging you to spare Selorm and deal with me! Joojo pleaded in tears.
Exactly what I am doing with you Joojo! Dealing with you romantically.
Now get your handsome self up and come give me a hot fvck. I am too horny. She seductively spoke and began stripping [email protected]
Angela I can’t do this. Not anymore! Joojo screamed in tears.
Well then, get ready to bury your brother this week! She threatened.
Joojo slowly got up and made love to her.
Wow, you are so good! Unlike your weak and naive brother who fvcks as if he is dancing to a cool music. Angela teased.
Angela please spare him the insults. I hate to hear you say anything bad about him.
You don’t deserve such an honest loving man! Joojo yelled in anger.
There he goes again. Defending the only person who matters to him.
Anyway, get prepared, I will be back next week. And hey, don’t try anything silly because if you do, your brother will go down the drain. Don’t forget he loves and trusts me with all his damaged unfunctionable heart. She cautioned.
Joojo angrily stared at her for seconds without knowing what to say.
Angela, please walk out! He commanded.
Sure I will. She teased.
Just when she held the door to open, someone knocked.
Joojo hurriedly pushed her off and dragged her into the washroom.
Angela please hide! He panicky spoke.
I can’t Joojo! Do you want me to suffocate? She angrily questioned.
Angela, you must hide here and don’t come out! What if it’s Selorm? Joojo asked in sweats.
The person kept knocking so hard on the door.
The person kept knocking so hard on the door.
Joojo, if I hide, you owe me two rounds of s£x tomorrow, agreed? She whispered.
Yes agreed! Joojo whispered back in fear and hurried to attend to the person.
He took a deep breath with a sign of cross on his forehead before opening the door.
Joojo, what took you this long to open the door? It was Theo.
Theo, I can’t believe you are here! Joojo screamed and hugged him in tears.
Wipe your tears Joojo, whatever it is, I am here to help you solve. He spoke.
Theo you don’t understand. You don’t understand my pain. The stress I am going through. The venomous cure I am giving my brother. Joojo whispered in tears.
Can we go inside and talk? Theo asked.
No bro, just stay in the sitting room whiles I clear my current mess. He sadly responded and walked back into the room.
Angela please get out. He instructed.
Why are you sounding this harsh? Who was at the door? She asked.
A friend of mine. Joojo responded.
Anyway, don’t forget you owe me two rounds of s£x tomorrow. Thanks for today anyway. You will feel the impact of your hard work on your brother. You have again activated his weekly happiness. Angela teased and walked out of the room.
Joojo followed her out and joined Theo.
In few minutes, Angela dressed up and walked to them in the sitting room.
Hello Theo. She greeted.
Hey Angela! What’s up with you? Joojo didn’t tell me you are here! He happily spoke.
Yeah, that is because, I am not in this house because of him. And point of correction, my name is Emefa and not Angela. Old things are past. She smiley explained.
What is that supposed to mean? I am a bit lost. Theo confusedly asked whiles Joojo looked on.
Joojo will help you find your way. She responded happily.
Anyway Joojo, I am off to the shop, see you later in the evening. She informed and walked away.
Joojo what is happening? What is the meaning of this drama? Theo questioned.
Joojo took his time and narrated everything to Theo in tears.
This is unbelievable! Two brothers married to one woman? Theo almost screamed.
Yes Theo, that is the kind of stress in which I find myself and she seem so happy about it. Joojo stated.
And what is her motive? He asked.
Just to pay Selorm back for causing her the pain of our separation. Joojo answered.
Whoa! I am thrown at balance. Joojo, this isn’t as simple as we see it. Theo began.
Right now, your brother’s health is at risk! And that is the major concern. He added.
So what do you suggest we do? Theo please help me for you are my last hope. Joojo pleaded.
Joojo, how many times have you slept with her? Theo asked.
Twice bro. Shamefully twice! He repeated in remorse.
Hmmm. This is bad! Innocently sleeping with your brother’s wife.
Anyway Joojo, let’s test how bad your brother’s health condition is, by informing him Angela has a child. Theo suggested.
What if he doesn’t survive it? Joojo asked.
And what if he does? If he does, we can go ahead and reveal the entire truth to him. That way, he will break up with her and your family will have it’s peace. Theo suggested.
Theo I am scared. What if he doesn’t survive it? Joojo fearfully asked.
That is why it is called risk. Testing to see if it will work. He responded.
Risking my brother’s life? No Theo!
Didn’t I tell you what the doctor said? He said his condition is just so bad and can cause his death with a slightest bad news. Joojo objected.
Joojo, that is the only option available or else, you will live your whole life, sleeping with your brother’s wife. Not only sleeping with him, but being married to her as well.
I suggest you back this with faith and let it happen. Theo advised.
Alright Theo, will think about it and give you a feedback. Joojo responded.
Please do because I have few days to spend here. Mum hasn’t recovered yet, I came because I strongly felt you needed me. He explained.
Thanks a million times for this sacrifice Theo.
I promise to give you a feedback tomorrow. Joojo sadly spoke.
I promise to give you a feedback tomorrow. Joojo sadly spoke.
Soon, it was evening and Selorm returned from work.
He happily walked into Joojo’s room.
Where is my cute little bro? He talked.
Right here bro. Welcome back. Joojo responded in a fake happy mood.
Thanks Joojo, but guess what? He quizzed.
What bro? Joojo asked.
The company has won the biggest contract and we are both traveling to Benin next week Wednesday to sign the docvments. Our company is the biggest in Africa now. Selorm gladly informed.
Yes! We made it! Joojo screamed.
Selorm, I’ve always trusted you to make this company the biggest in Africa someday. And indeed, you made it. I wish dad was here to see how his elder son is making him proud. Joojo happily spoke.
Wherever he is, he is proud.
Anyway get prepared to deliver a speech when we go. He informed and began walking away.
Anyway where is my wife? Is she home yet? I called her lines but they were off. He inquired.
She isn’t home yet bro, I believe she will be back soon. Joojo answered.
Alright then, supper is served by the cook, join me in the dining hall in 5 minutes. He stated and walked away.
Oh Selorm, I wish you had a stronger heart to listen to me. Joojo sadly thought.
The next day, Theo called him for a feedback on what they discussed.
Joojo, what’s your take on the plan? He asked.
I am ready to be part of it. And hey, I hope we are only going to tell him Angela has a child and nothing else? Because if we go beyond that, he might not survive it. Joojo questioned.
Sure Joojo, we ain’t going beyond that for now.
Let’s meet in his office at 11am. Theo stated and hanged up.
At exactly the scheduled time, the two friends met at the company premises.
Joojo stared at Theo’s face in fear.
Theo, I wish this works. He talked.
I wish same too Joo., please be strong. Theo bravery responded.
They both walked into Selorm’s office after a knock.
Hello Theo, what a pleasant surprise! When did you come back? Joojo told me your mum isn’t well. Selorm warmly welcomed them.
She’s doing better bro. I only came to visit Joojo. Theo answered.
That’s thoughtful of you. Thanks for being a good friend.
Anyway, I pray she gets well soon so that you assume your position as the human resource manager in this company. Selorm informed.
Unbelievable! Bro, thank you so much! I didn’t know I’ve been employed already. Theo happily screamed.
What a surprise! Selorm, you didn’t tell me about this. Joojo cut in.
That is because, this is one of the biggest surprises I have for you. Selorm playfully responded.
Anyway what brings the two of you here? I hope it isn’t a lunch date, because if it is, I already have an appointment with my wife over that. He smiley spoke.
No bro, it is about something different. Joojo calmly responded.
What is it Joojo? Talk to me. Selorm nervously asked.
Selorm, I haven’t informed you what it is but you are sweating already. Joojo fearfully said.
Joojo what is it? Selorm almost screamed.
Selorm please calm down. You are overreacting. Joojo pleaded in fear.
Selorm sat back in his chair with his heart beating so fast and sweats all over his forehead.
Theo got so scared and began signaling Joojo to divert the conversation but Joojo didn’t get the sign language well.
Selorm, Emefa has a child with another man. Joojo informed.
What! Joooooooo… Selorm tried to speak but went off. He fainted.
Joojo run to him in his chair and began shaking death out of him.
Selorm wake up!!!!! Please wake up!!! He screamed.
Theo run out to call for help and soon, the company’s ambulance conveyed him to the hospital.
Theo and Joojo desperately waited outside the ward to hear a good news.
Theo I warned you! You see what you’ve caused? If my brother dies, his blood will be on your head! Joojo cursed.
Joojo please don’t curse me. I only wanted the best for you. Besides, I signaled you to stop, but you wouldn’t listen. Theo unhappily responded.
Joojo angrily turned to him and gave him an angry slap on the face.
How dare you lie! Theo how dare you! He screamed.
Joojo, when angry, watch what to say and what you do. Don’t let anger override you.
I abandoned my sick mother to attend to your call, and here I am receiving slaps? Theo sadly spoke.
You will receive more if anything bad happens to my brother. Joojo yelled.
To be continued…
