A Tale With My Lecturer season 2 Episode 6&7

season 2 Episode 6

After leaving the Senator’s house, i headed straight to a small bar close to my neighbourhood to think things through. Yea I so badly needed to calm my head and think straight, especially on what to say to my wife.
Of course the senator was d--n right, Comfort won’t help me without making new demands. Something that could ruin the new relationship i was building with my wife.

“My God, but i need my job back. Where in this country will i get a better job in few months?” i asked myself, breathing heavily as i stared at the bottle of stout before me.

I so badly needed cash. I had so many problems waiting on me with just little balance left in my bank account.

“dear Lord, please make my wife understand when i talk to her. Please make her see reason in my request. I have to tell her everything. She has to understand, please” i prayed miserably, fighting hard to control my emotions. Just that moment a man walked up to me, greeted polietly and settled down on a chair, facing me.

“i’m Mr Victor Moses, from Vanguard Newspaper. We spoke on phone the other day, i hope you remember?. Actually I was in the Senator’s house when i saw you walk in through the other door, and i followed you as you left, hoping for an opportunity like this one” he said softly while i stared at him speechlessly, not knowing what to say. Of course I wasn’t pleased with his presence and i equally wasn’t happy over the way he was stalking me, but he was a pressman and i sure needed him.

“just drop your card or phone number. I will call you when i’m ready to talk” i said calmly. He studied me for some seconds, shrugged with resignation and handed over his contact card to me.
“i will be expecting your call sir” he said, got up and left.

Thirty minutes later, i returned to my apartment to see my wife a bit worried and anxious.

“my love i hope all went fine?” she asked as she opened the entrance door for me. I nodded silently, settled on a couch.and breathed deeply. She dutifully joined me, holding my hands softly.

“i’m all ears my love. Tell me how did it go with the Senator?” she demanded seriously, leaving me with no choice than to tell her every single detail of my discussion with the senator.
She listened calmly, her face growing cold as i revealed everything to her. Her eyes lighted up as soon as i was done.

“what if Comfort asks you to kick me out of the house in order to help you. Will you do it?” she asked, leaving me defenceless.
“seriously i think you are putting much priority in getting your job back than building your family. I just don’t know what to say” she breathed sadly.

“my love c’mon, what will you have me do?. Sit idle and let the job that is still within my reach slip away?. How fast do you think it will be to get another job?, or do you think i will be comfortable seeing you run the house all alone?. C’mon i’m a man, trust me on this” i begged desperately.

“supposing i’m the one in this mess. I cheated with a colleague and i’m now begging you to allow me go back to the same colleague and work with him as if nothing happened while you are yet to live through the old mistake i made with him. Will permit me?. Now my love, your answer will determine mine. So talk to me. Will you permit me?” she asked with voice laden with pain and dissapointment.

I just couldn’t utter a word. Of course her question threw me in a very tight position. Saying “yes” was a big lie and saying “no” could ruin everything.

I simply was speechless. Very, very speechless.

“My love” i breathed, clearly confused on what next to say.
“just answer honestly, i beg of you” she insisted, throwing me apart with her demand.

“fine you want the truth, here it is. I won’t accept” i murmured with resignation. She breathed deeply and drew back with a cold smile on her face.

“so tell me the reason you won’t accept?” she pushed on, getting on my nerves with her prying questions.

“my love, please stop. Let’s just forget it” i begged sadly. She caressed my face with her left hand, staring deep into my eyes.
“of course you won’t accept because no matter how hard we try to forget a painful past, it still lives on in our memory and we are scared of it happening again” she said softly.

My eyes fell with great pain and regret. Of course it was a bad idea telling her everything and hoping she would play along.

“so tell me, how do you feel right now?” she asked. I swallowed hard and shrugged. I really was fed up with her annoying questions.

“anyway you can go talk with Comfort and see if she can help you without making unnecessary demands. I have no problem with it as long as it will make you happy” she suddenly added, shocking me with the unexpected words.
I quickly sat up with surprise, a big smile appearing on my face. She nodded and equally forced out a smile.

“i just don’t know what to say right now my love. Thank you” i breathed happily, drew forward and kissed her affectionately. She closed her eyes, saying nothing more.

Deep down i knew she was far from happy. I also knew she simply allowed me to go on with my plans just to make me happy. Of course she looked very hurt and i just couldn’t help but pray that the situation doesn’t affect her health or cause her to lose our baby she was carrying. It would be a fatal blow to her and to me as well.

I also couldn’t help but wonder what Comfort’s demands would be. Of course i very much knew she would make demands even though i tried not to accept the reality.

I spent all night thinking about everything, managing to sleep around 3am in the morning, and waking up by 9am to hear my mother in law’s voice coming in from the sitting room as she discussed with my wife. I smiled to myself, happy that the old woman visited to keep her daughter company. It was something i so badly wanted.

I quickly freshened up and headed to the sitting room to greet her, but on getting to the connecting door between the sitting room and corridor leading to our bedroom, my wife’s voice stopped me.

“mum you don’t know how i feel. I’m dying with pain. He so badly needs his job back that he’s willing to do anything for it. You could have seen the joy in his eyes when i accepted that he should go talk to the miserable husband snatcher called Comfort” she sobbed. I simply froze as the words hit my ears, not knowing what to do than to stand quietly and listen.

“mum you know that girl can do anything. She’s pregnant and in the village where every form of witchcraft is easily accessible. What if she gives him something to eat, or does something to turn his eyes away from me?” Mum i’m tired. This isn’t the life i wanted” she complained to her mum, forcing me to return to my room, where i hid, pondered over her words and cried like a man.

Of course this also wasn’t the life i wanted, but I had to do my best to live with my mistake.
“I have to see Comfort, no matter what” I resolved.
