THE FINAL EPISODE OF WHEN LOVE IS NOT ENOUGH.
A story by Amah
He walked up to her with his car key and said.
“I need to fuel the car, do you have any money with you and also the money for the registration I have being asking you to loan me… I really need money to fuel the car right now…
She looked up from the plate of food which she was feeding her son and angrily replied him.
“Yesterday was money to fix the car engine, today is money for fuel. You Just want to close down my business with this your excess demand… you don’t even care about the drugs I told you I need to buy for our son…
“Please, don’t start now. The business you are complaining of, I opened it for you… It was my money. I boast it up to a big standard Just incase of raining days there will be somewhere to run to. You have two workers under your care and the business is doing well. You know I don’t have money, if our son needs anything you go and take it from the business money. Stop bothering me with irrelevant things. I said I need money for fuel Lona…
“You are not even ashamed of always asking for money. I know you opened the business for me after you almost exhausted all the cash you won. Buying exotic cars and designers wear… even after i told you not to play again rather you should invest your remaining money you still went ahead and lose all your money to another game. I fell for you even before you won the betting, I believed in you and supported you. You did not want to play I encouraged you until you run around for Cash which you used to play with the other hot contestant and won…
He quickly interrupted her.
“Don’t sit there and act like I didn’t settle you. I showed my gratitude before traveling out of the State to also thank Katie, my ex who out of foolishness slipped out of my hand. She was my biggest supporter. If she hasn’t given me the money I used to play I will never be able to win and when I offer her appreciation gifts she turned it down… despite how mouth watering it was. She refused to collect it. Katie really shocked me. And since I lost huge amount to games I only have that car which has being given me issues recently. The upcoming game that is worth so much I’m thinking of playing … let me try one more, I may probably win again. I asked you to loan me the money to register but you refused…I wish to ask Katie again to help me with some cash…
Lona screamed his name in anger which made their little boy to startle in fear.
“Pascal don’t you have shame… your ex is a married woman. How can you be calling another man’s wife and be asking for money. Where is your self pride… why are you so shameless. I have adviced you as my husband to either get a job in the engineering company since you have idea in that field or register your car for uber. Using your car for uber or taxify is better off than just staying idle and looking for who will give you money to play games. After your big win which has being many years now how many times have you win again, despite how you play you keep loosing. If you have invested part of that money to something good you won’t be crying for money now. I will not allow you to run down my business because you gave me money which I used in opening it… that is the only source of income in this house. I don’t care if it was the money you gave me I used, I don’t care. All I’m saying is that i will not allow you ruin my life, my child’s life or even my business… never Pascal.
They went on arguing.
Pascal who refused to work or use his car for uber because of what people will say. “A millionaire who later became an uber driver”.
He refused but Lona kept on persuading him and after few weeks of not having a choice he decided to ask one of his friend who he helped in the past to connect him to an engineering firm.
After few months he got the job.
The pay wasn’t what he wish for but is better than nothing.
In that way he will take care of his family in his own little way and try to quit playing betting games totally since it has not been favouring him.
Lona was happy as her husband stopped asking her for money all the time and became busy.
She supported him because his salary was not much and she later gave birth to their second child, a girl.

We will grow old together and watch our children grow from stage to stage and bringing grand children to us who will bless our old age…I love you.
Michelle lifted her head and pecked her husband’s cheek. He cuddled her up to himself, lowered his own mouth to her forehead and placed a warm kiss.
“I Love you more darling and thank you for loving me too much. I’m so glad that God all by himself mended the crack not just only in our home but also in Katie’s and Tim life, in Mirabel who God finally blessed with a family of her own and to many other families whose testimonies will shake the devil’s kingdom because it will be so loud. At the end all glory will be to God, our father in heaven who made it all possible and gave us reasons to smile. Even when Love wasn’t enough in our relationship and our walk with God, he did not allow any of us to break apart but glue us together in his warmness…
