I winced as I crawled to the bathroom leaving a trail of blood behind me on the shiny tiles. Henry had left few moments ago without even sparing a glance at me.
I breathed heavily as I leaned on the door, I reached for the handle and used it to pull my self up, it wasn’t easy but I was able to stand and lean on the door for support.. My whole body was on fire..
Steadily I walked into the bathroom and moved to the left side of the room, where there was a cabinet for toiletries and a wall length mirror.
Staring back at me was a fair skinned lady with blackish scars and bruises from months/weeks ago, along with red/pinkish fresh bruises scattered all over her once spotless skin on her slim body.. Blood trailed down her thighs to her ankles, dropping as a small puddle between her feet. Her once short and silk shoulder length hair laid matted and disheveled on her forehead.. Her soft baby face looked tired and the hand marks from the slap was evident on her cheek.. And her once joyful and cheerful eyes looked so lifeless and depressed.. That lady is me.. Debbie.
A tear slid down my cheek as I stared at my stomach, I had hoped this one would stay.. Four.. This is the fourth pregnancy and it’s gone just like the others.. Why didn’t you stay with me baby?.. Why didn’t you hold on to mummy? I thought as I sank to the floor hugging my knees..
Memories of how it all started flashed in my head and I cried even more.

Three years ago..
“Oh my God! You cheated!” Henry exclaimed dropping the wireless pad on the table.
“Look at him o, I won fair and square babe, you can’t deny it.. You are just sad that you lost to your wife” I bragged sticking out my tongue
“It’s because I decided to let you win love, but I’ll let you brag anyway” he shrugged with a smile.. I scoffed turning to face him on the couch
“Don’t flatter yourself Henry.. You lost to your wife face it” I said with a smirk and he smiled
“Fine, I lost to my very sexy and smart wife, now baby stop the bragging and kiss me” he said reaching over to hold me.. I smiled and sat on his laps, pulling him into a kiss.. He reciprocated and deepened the kiss Caressing my exposed thighs.. He pulled back and pecked my lips.
“Let’s not forget we have visitors coming over soon,” he mumbled standing up with me, he held me as I wrapped my legs around his waist with my hands on his neck..
“One of the joys of marrying a model, you’re so light even when you eat practically everything in the house including me” he teased sitting me on the counter as he moved in the store.
“I do not eat much!” I exclaimed
“Sure you don’t” he said sarcastically and I gasped faking a frown whilst crossing my hands.
“But I’m not complaining especially when I can bend and carry you easily for different positions without getting tired easily” he said pecking my lips before moving to the gas.
“You’re so perverted” I chuckled
“Only for you love” he said and I smiled
“So what are we making?” I asked
“We?.. No, I’m making jollof rice and assorted meat, you angel.. Your work is to sit back and watch your darling husband prepare dinner for our friends. ” he said joggling the Onion and pepper
“, let me do something, I can’t just sit here without helping you” I said trying to jump down from the counter.. He moved me back down and shook his head
“No Debbie, if you really want to do anything then just sing or talk about your upcoming fashion line or anything funny.. I’ll listen, besides you’ll only spoil my recipe if you come here” he smiled washing a pot
“Okay na.. Mister chef, do your thing” I said smiling..

Few hours later
Our friends already arrived and we were all currently sitting in the dinning room..
“So tell me when am I becoming a God father?” Daniel Henry’s best friend asked.. My husband smiled and took a sip of his juice
“Uhm.. We aren’t ready yet” he replied
“You guys have been married for two years..and you’re still not ready?, is it that you’re not tired of eating yourselves up yet or what?” Kiki asked causing everyone to laugh except Luke, Henry’s other friend.. I never really liked him since he had been hitting on me since I started dating his friend about a year before our marriage, the idiot even had the guts to ask me out just few days to my marriage with his Friend.
If not for one thing, I’d say he was against my marriage with his friend, but I decided to give him the benefit of the doubt.
Speaking of the devil, his eyes met with mine and I looked away
“You aren’t ready yet or because Debbie doesn’t want to get pregnant because of her career?” He blurted out picking on his food
I felt Henry’s gaze on me.. He took my hand on the table and smiled
“That’s not the reason, but even if it was then I don’t see any problem with it, besides we have forever to make as many babies as we want right honey?” He asked smiling at me
“’re right” I mumbled forcing a small smile on my face.
“Yes.. You’re both right, I mean it’s not necessary for couples to start popping out babies just two years into marriage right?” Daniel asked.
“Yes.. Besides these two are the most romantic couple I’ve ever seen, awwn.. I can’t wait to get married” kiki said dreamily and I heard Daniel and henry laugh
“Well Daniel is available” henry teased and I zoned out of their conversation.
I looked at Luke and found him glaring at my hand in Henry’s, what is wrong with him?.. He met my gaze and I gave him my best death glare.. He only smirked and licked his lips.
After dinner, kiki helped me clear the table as well as tidy the dishes..
She later excused herself to use the restroom, just as she left I continued with the dishes and suddenly felt hands snaking around my waist, I flinched out of the hold on instinct and turned to see Luke staring at me..
“Jesus.. Luke what the hell?!” I snapped cleaning my hands on the towel
“Oh come on deb.. We are just the only ones here, just let me hold you even if it’s for few minutes” he said reaching to hold my hand.. I moved back with my mouth open
“I don’t remember adding alcohol in that juice, so what exactly is wrong with you? And when did that stupid nickname start?” I asked
“Oooh!.. Why can’t you understand.. We both know I’ve been nursing feelings for you even before you married Henry, why can’t you just give me a chance.. What does henry have that I don’t?” He asked frowning
“Henry is my husband and your friend, and I love him, there’s absolutely no way I’ll cheat on him.. I didn’t do it when we were dating and I won’t start now, with you for that matter, besides I’m your friend’s wife..if you can’t respect me at least respect your friendship with my husband” I said,
“Please leave, I’m busy” I added and turned to continue with the plates
“Well if you’re not going to give me what I want the easy way, I’m going to get it the hard way..” He said and I felt his hands on my waist, I turned and slapped him angrily.. He held his cheek in shock as he stared at me
“If you dare touch me again, i swear to God I’ll smash your head with that pestle” I spat pointing to the pestle placed beside the counter .. He clenched his teeth and glared at me
“Don’t worry, very soon you’ll come running to me for help and I’ll make sure to have my fill with you” he stated and matched out of the kitchen bumping into kiki on his way out
I sighed and continued with my work
“Ahahn, what’s wrong with that one na?” Kiki asked taking her position beside me..
“Forget that fool abeg” I mumbled.

Next day..
I walked out of the super market with my grocery bags, I opened my trunk and placed everything in, before moving to the drivers seat after locking the trunk shut.
I was about stepping in when a voice called me
“Sister Debbie” I turned and looked around when I didn’t see any familiar faces around
“Sister Debbie.. I’m the one calling you” a young man said walking towards me with a smile.
“Good evening ma” he greeted, from his face i figured he should be in his late 20’s or early 30’s..
“Good evening..” I replied unsure of who he was
“I assume you’re wondering who I am?” He asked
“Uhm.. Yes, I don’t think I’ve seen you around before” I admitted
“I thought as much, well my name is Samson, we attend the same Church.. Fountain of hope ministries” he said and I gasped
“Really?!, I’m so sorry.. I haven’t seen you in church” I said
“It’s actually a big church.. So I understand, but it’s nice to finally meet you in person sister Debbie” he said and I smiled, but before I could reply, he pulled me into a hug ..this is really awkward.. I patted his back and pulled back, faking a smile.
“Nice to meet you too, brother Samson.. ” I trailed off
“I actually want to thank you for the charity work you and your husband have been doing in the church.. May god continue to replenish you both..”
“Amen.. Amen, so uhm, I have to be on my way now.. It was nice meeting you..”
“ want to leave now?” He asked and I nodded trying not to frown..what is his deal now? I don’t even know him, and I don’t feel comfortable with him at all..
“Yes.. My husband is probably waiting for me” I said opening my door to step in.
“In that case let me join you” he said
“Ehn?!” I asked and watched in amusement as he moved to the passenger seat, he opened the door and stepped in..
“How do you know if I’m heading your way?” I asked staring at him
“I’m actually heading to dubic hotel, we have a youth conference there, its along the express.. I don’t have transport so that’s why I’m hoping you can drop me there, I would really appreciate, but if you’re not heading that way I can come down and think of something” he said slowly..
I stared at him Briefly and sighed,
“I’m actually Heading that way, I’ll just drop you off” I stated despite myself and drove out..
We both sat in silence all through the ride..
“Okay, drive in, so you can park well” he said when we got to the gate of the hotel.
“No, just come down here, so I can just drive straight” I said slowing down
“No ma.. Those agberos will hold you here o, and they won’t leave until you pay a huge sum of money, just drive in and park well so you don’t face any stress” he said
“Are you serious?” I asked and he nodded
I sighed and drove into the hotel compound.. I parked and he removed his seatbelt.
“Why don’t you come in?” He asked
“For what na?” I asked glaring at him
“Don’t you want to see how the youth conference is?” He asked
“No thank you” I said
“You have helped me sister Debbie, I insist you come with me.. I’d like to introduce to the youth president and others” he said and I almost screamed
If it means getting rid of you then fine! I thought to myself and removed my key from the car, I stepped out and slammed the door shut.
He smiled and led the way, he opened the glass door to the hotel and gestured for me to go in.. I frowned and walked in.. He led me to an empty hall and looked around..
“So where are the youths?” I asked impatiently
“I don’t know, they are probably running late… Wait today is Saturday right?” He asked
“Yes” I deadpanned with my hands crossed on my chest
“Ughh!!.. The conference was actually yesterday” he said palming his head
“So you mean to tell Me that you wasted my time for nothing?!, you’re so unbelievable!.. Now that I even think about it where are your books and Bible?” I asked and he swallowed
“I forgot them at home” he said and I shook my head
“You must be joking” I muttered and walked out
I stepped back into my car and started the engine..he rushed out of the hotel and knocked at my window,
“What?” I asked when it slipped down
“Please take me to the supermarket you saw me, I don’t have transport” he said and I hissed slipping the window back up.
I ignored him and drove out of the hotel and straight for my house
Can you imagine, arrant nonsense!!.. I thought to myself.

*Hours later*

I leaned closer to henry as we watched a movie together in the living room.
There was a knock on the door before Rufus walked in
“Good evening oga and maram” he greeted
Henry sighed and looked up at Rufus
“It’s madam Rufus, what is maram?” He asked and I laughed
“Okay sir, maram” Rufus repeated and henry sighed in defeat ..
“Honey please leave him alone.. Evening Rufus, do you need anything?” I asked with a smile
“Somebori is here to saw you” he said and henry laughed
“Who?” I asked
“He nor call he name, he say he want to see oga” he said and I nodded
“Okay let him in” I said and he walked out after muttering an okay
“Are you expecting someone?” I asked looking up at henry
“No, I wonder who it is” he mumbled and a knocked sounded at the door..
“Come in” henry yelled and the door opened.. I looked at the lobby and frowned when I saw Samson walk into the living room.
“What the hell are you doing here?” I asked sitting up .
“Uhm babe do you know him?” Henry asked and I sighed
“Of course she does, she’s my lover after all” Samson said before I could respond.
Wait what did he just say?
“Ehn?!” I asked unsure of what I just heard
“Come on ife.. Stop pretending” how did he know my middle name and what does he think he’s doing
“Uhh, what is going on here?” Henry asked looking at me
“I don’t.. I don’t understand, Samson what the hell is wrong with you?!” I asked standing up to face the idiot
“Look baby I’m tired of hiding this okay, he deserves to know the truth..” Samson said looking straight into my eyes
“Which truth na?” I asked confused
He ignored me and turned to face my husband
“Sir you must be wondering why it took so long for your wife to return from the supermarket this afternoon, she was actually with me at dubic hotel.. Here are the pictures for verification” he said placing a brown envelope on the table..
What the hell is happening!.. What is he saying?!.
I watched as Henry slowly took the envelope and brought out the pictures.. I rushed over to see what the content was and almost fainted.. The first picture was the taken when he forced me into a hug, the second was the two of us in my car, the next was when he opened the door at the hotel for me and the last was when he asked me to low my window.. The way they took the picture made it seem like he was kissing me.!..
“Ehh!” I yelled looking at Samson
“I’m sure she must have cooked a stupid story for you already because I threatened to tell you everything, but the truth of the matter is that I and your wife have been having an affair for the past one year now” he said and I almost fainted
“Samson? Why?!” I asked pushing him back as hot tears fell from my eyes
“Why.. Why are you lying?.. What will you achieve by doing this?! Why do you want to destroy my marriage na?!” I asked
“Please tell him the truth, I don’t know what or who manipulated you to do this.. But please have a conscience and say the truth!” I choked out looking back at Henry who was still staring hard at the pictures in his hands
“I’m finished oh, God!.. What did I do to you?!” I yelled pushing Samson back.
“Is it because I didn’t take you back to the supermarket?” I asked and he shook his head
“Baby stop all these drama, he already knows the truth” he said looking at me
“What truth?!” I yelled
“That you’re my woman and..” I yelped as he fell backwards holding his cheek.
I looked to my side and saw Henry shaking in rage
“Rufus!” He yelled and the gateman rushed in few minutes later..
“Sir?” Rufus answered staring between me and Samson
“Take that idiot outside, don’t let him leave until I come out, if he escapes you’re dead” he said and Rufus nodded dragging Samson out. I turned to look at henry who was already staring at Me.
“Are these pictures real?” He asked and I slowly went on my knees
” did you go to the hotel with him?” He asked and I started sobbing
“It’s not what you think..” I trailed off
“Yes or no Debbie” he yelled at me and I flinched .. This is the first time he has ever raised his voice at me.
“Yes.. But we didn’t do anything, I swear.. He said it was youth conference and I.. ” I stopped as he walked out of the house angrily.. I ran after him and saw him drive out with Samson in his car..
“God please help me o” I cried pacing in front of the gate
“Maram wetin happen?” Rufus asked as I sat on the floor crying
“Person die?” He asked only making me wail louder ..
Hours passed before henry drove back into the compound.. And for the first time he hit me, and that was how it all started..
Flashback ends

Back to the present..

I cause the day I met Samson, he’ll never find peace or happiness until he comes back and say the truth.. Joy will be far from his home, my God will punish him for what he did..

To Be Continued….. . . .
