“You never told me you were cheating on my mom”he found himself saying to his father
“She’s beautiful tho and young, I can’t believe you just ruined her”he blurted and he felt his cheeks got hot because of the kind of slap his father gave him
Lawal is so angry that he wouldn’t want to get more angered than he already was
He never wanted that so he hit him on his face
He held his lips immediately feeling it to see if blood came out but there was no blood
He smiled weirdly at his father
“Whoa! First time you hit me father “he said
“Stop talking”he warned grinning
“I will but why are you cheating on my mother? Huh is she not enough for you? Even though you wanted another wife, mom would’ve accepted if you ask nicely after all its Islamic “he said defending his mom the more
His mom worry day and night for him thinking about how she missed that man called her husband not knowing he’s married to someone somewhere
Its so embarrassing?
How will his mom when she gets to find out that her husband is cheating on her with another woman?
“Hmmm”she answered Nafisat as she helped her pick her nails
“What if you find out all of a sudden that daddy is cheating on you? “She asked and her mom went cold at the question
What made her fifteen years old daughter to suddenly ask that?
Of course she knows her husband is a flirt but why would she complain about it since she doesn’t love him?
He clenched his fist as they both glared at each other
“Say something nice that will make me stay Lawal! Tell me one reason why you lied and I won’t go”she thought to herself as he kept glaring at her
He opened his mouth to speak but no words came out
He struggled so hard to find his own voice
“Don’t go”he mumbled and she scoffed
“All you’ve got to say after playing me for a fool! Treating me like a kid that I am to you! Isn’t it!! “
She felt like a kid for the first since she met him
The umbrella man who helped her out when she needed help the most
She never thought that the kindhearted man is this cruel!
“Let’s call our marriage quits! “She announced
“Why? We’re married “
“And I don’t want to be with a liar “
He smirked painfully touching his brow
“Don’t call my name anymore!! “
“Why are you angry? Because I didnt touch you? I will do that now if you want me to”he said pulling off his clothes but she wasn’t in the mood for it anymore
Her mind recalled the con:dom… She frowned
And then the lip paint which he blamed to have gotten from his sister
Her head was aching
She thought she was dreaming and in a fairy land
She wants to wake up and found out that all these is a lie.
“Why are you angry? “
This is not what she wants to hear
She wants to hear why he lied to him not to have married before
Why he said he was a virgin when he was not
And the most important of all if he loves her
She wants to know that
“Lawal have you ever loved me? “She asked
And he nodded his head
“I always do love you “he answered and she scoffed
Her mind tinkled to her that it was another white lie to soothe her
“Get lost Lawal! Because I hate you with passion!! I hate you old man!! You’re an old man old enough to be my…. “He hugged her and their two bodies touched bringing the both injured heart into collision
