A Tale With My Lecturer season 2 Episode 22 & 23

Episode 22
Comfort noticed the frown on my face the moment my eyes fell on her mother. I greeted the old woman politely and dashed into my room with anger. she followed me, looking very remorseful.
‘’what’s your mother doing here?’’ I asked angrily. She drew close and held my shoulders from behind. An action that irritated me tremendously.

‘’she’s my mother for crying out loud. Why are you sounding very disrespectful?’’ she murmured. I turned and stared at her with fire in my eyes.

‘’what did you just say ?’’ I asked. She breathed deeply, drawing back fearfully.

‘’I’m sorry, but the way you have been treating me isn’t just fair. We live in the same apartment yet we relate like strangers. I cant even chat or play with you. My only crime is loving you unconditionally’’ she sobbed while I stared at her speechlessly, unmoved by her sudden change of mood. She slowly sat on my bed and continued with the crying. I ignored her , undressed and cursed inwardly.

I really was getting fed up with her, but just had to with it all.
“it’s all my fault” I said to myself with regret.
‘’why do you hate me so much?. Why do you resent me so much?’’ I heard her ask. I simply ignored her and whistled.

‘’ I love you so much Caleb. I will sacrifice my life a hundred times over to make you happy. You are my world. You mean a lot to me. Why are you treating me so heartlessly?. Yes I’m in your house but I’m not happy. Remember everything happens for a purpose. You shouldn’t question God. Stop treating me like a leper. I beg of you.” She cried solemnly.
After a while, I drew close and sat beside her.

“I know you do love me. There is no doubt about that. But I have a wife. I have a life. I’m not happy being without my wife. Tell me, what’s your plan?. What do you plan to make out of your life?. What’s your plan for our baby?’’ I asked softly, caressing her back. She wiped her tears and stared at me.

‘’after my baby is born, I will go for my National youth service and get the certificate’’ she replied and breathed deeply.

‘’but what’s your plan for our son?. Will you treat him the way you are treating me?. Will you tell him that he was conceived by mistake?. Will you give him your last name?. will you make him a part of your family?’’ she asked seriously, throwing me back with the heavy questions. I kissed her forehead and smiled at her reassuringly.

‘’if the child turns out to be mine which I’m sure he is. I will accept him. He will be part of my family. You shouldn’t worry about him.’’ I answered.
‘’so how about me?’’ sh asked slowly.

‘’oh comfort, you know I don’t love you. I can never be with you. All we had in the past were just lies. Moreover I have a young and beautiful wife.” I answered honestly.

‘’supposing your wife gets out of the way, you will be mine. Right?’’ she asked while I nodded.
‘’yes you are my second best, but you see, my wife can never be out of the way” I answered. She nodded slowly.

“I see” she muttered under her breath and got up.
“I love you very much, with all my heart. You will be mine soon” she said courageously and left the room, leaving me wondering if she has finally lost her head.

I barely had settled down in my office the next day, when my old pal Henry walked in with a calm smile on his face. I drew back on seeing him as old memories instantly flashed back into my head.

It was in his hotel that my affair with comfort started. It was in his hotel that my life changed course of direction.

Ever since the affair with comfort blew up, I had avoided him till that present moment.

I knew avoiding him wasn’t the best decision and I kind of felt a bit tensed up seeing him in my office. Definitely I knew something big brought him in.
To be continued.

Episode 23
Minutes later at a Restaurant close to the university, I reluctantly shared all I have been through to Henry who listened with great attention.
My mind however relaxed as I shared my fears, story and feelings to him. It really felt good sharing my problems with a friend, something I had yearned to do for a long time.

‘’so my brother, that’s my story. I’m now standing between the devil and his fire. I so much want to be with my wife but it isn’t possible at the moment and comfort so much wants to be with me against my happiness. I love my wife so much but I just had to sacrifice many things to survive. It’s really not as if I intentionally decided to avoid you but the thing is that I messed up big time. I’m still ashamed of myself. How can I face my friends or old pals with such a story?. I was unable to control a mere girl while some guys like you do control as much as five girls without much stress.” I poured out with regret. Henry shook his head, sipped his drink and smiled.

‘’yea you really messed up big time. You shouldn’t have allowed your relationship with comfort to grow wings. That was your mistake and fixing things now will definitely bit a lot tougher. Moreover you now owe your job to her. She’s living with you and will also give you your first child to seal her control over you.’’ He said slowly while I listened carefully.
‘’Jessica will return soon and comfort will go away’’ I added. Henry laughed.

‘’do you think so?’’ he asked,
‘’believe me, you will be disappointed. It Seems like you are yet to understand how females reason?’’ he muttered. I stared at him thoughtfully.
‘’my brother, your Comfort definitely knew what she was up against before even getting pregnant for you. Unlike we guys, before a girl does something, she will think it through, weigh the risk and gains before going on with it. She’s simply acting up a script for you brother and you are just playing along with her. She’s going to frustrate your plans of being with your wife that you are going to feel like killing her in the end, which you will end up doing wrongly’’ He summarized easily, sending cold fear into my heart with his words.

‘’what do you suggest I do now?’’ I asked with resignation. He kept quiet for a while, breathing deeply.

‘’you preferred your job over your wife bro, and it kind of made things more complicated. You have to find the right moment to make comfort go away forever, or she might end up doing it to your wife. There is no other way bro. The girl is obsessed with you. You can’t offer her money. Her silence and support puts food on your table via your job. She knows She got you in her hands.’’ Henry replied.

‘’so what exactly are you insinuating?’’ I asked with shock.
‘’you tell me’’ he laughed and finished his drink. I shook my head and swallowed hard.

‘’hope murdering Comfort isn’t what he’s insinuating?’’I wondered as the thought crossed over my mind. Of course I knew Comfort was capable of doing the same to my wife with any slightest opportunity. Moreover my mother’s sudden illness and exit from the house kind of pointed fingers at the d--n girl.

Fortunately nothing extraordinary happened in the following months that came by. My work went well, I saved a lot of money, Jessica grew stronger and comfort still stayed in my house with her mother who watched over her every minute.

She finally gave birth to a very lovely boy, who brought a new kind of feeling into my heart. Comfort became the mother of my first male child.

‘’his name will be Caleb ‘’ she smiled to me as I carried him in my hands for the first time.
