Tare made up her mind to ignore the
pictures and act like she hadn’t seen any’..she disposed them in the trashcan and set them ablaze.She wasn’t going to let some stranger destroy her marriage’….

No ma,I just have something to ask of you.

Here it is..she said placing the pack of juice in a stool she had brought before him.
Thanks mrs Richard’..Am not going to take much of your time,so I will just go straight to what brought me here.

A job? I don’t think I need help.or do you have one in mind?

Mitchell gulped down another glass as tears fell at ease,it was still difficult for her to believe her husband betrayed her….
Hi angel’…the tall guy said showing off his white teeth’
Am married’..Mitchell said waving her fingers at him.
I bet your husband doesn’t know what he has,leaving you all by yourself at a club.
I chose to okay’..my husband isn’t aware of this..mitch said drunkily’
well since you choose to have fun..we can make it worth it you know. ..he approached her closing the gap between them.
Mitchell could feel his breath on her’…she inhaled his cologne…trying to control dizzy her self’
oh dear…we can atleast get a room..instead of staring’
Before he could complete his statement,Mitchell had fallen her asleep.
He carried her in his shoulder in an attempt to have her to his fill’
Mama what happened? I thought you said you’ll be spending a week with brother’…Rita said giving her mother and brother a se searching look.
Rita please am not in the mood for your questions just prepare Egusi and Alebo..
Before she could ask her brother..her mum gave her that don’t try it look.
she dashed to the kitchen in annoyance, not when she had planned to go on a vacation with her boyfriend. ..this mother and son from nowhere had come to ruin her plans’
What’s with the gloomy look sef…she hissed loudly’
Betty carried her handbag as she followed her boss in a slow pace’..it had been an hectic day at the office,giving her no chance to execute her plans’…they were the only ones left at the office apart from the securities.
just then the cloud choose to get angry as the rain started unexpectedly giving them no choice than to run back into the building.
sorry about that sir..Betty said,pulling off her shoes which were totally soaked as a result of the rain
I should be the one apologising, I made you work extra time..you should have gone home a long time ago’
it’s nothing sir.
silence fell upon the room as Richard tried to control his lust…it had been a while he saw a lady totally drenched making her clothings hug her body like a second skin’
Betty knowing the discomfort in Richard face,she smiled happily as she unbuttoned few buttons of her shirt exposing her cleavages’
Excuse me..I have to take this he said and went a little bit father from her to pick his call’
Betty bit her lip angrily…tomorrow is another she said’
Tears gathered in Mitchell’s eyes as realisation hit her..what have I done? Oh God please forgive me,she bit her lower lip in frustration. Even if she tries to convince herself that nothing happened’..she knew she was lieng,what explanation could she give to her clothes on the floor?the unknown guy had striped her Unclad, it only mean one thing …he slept with her’
Shehad been so stupid to get drunk. .thinking of the possible way to forget her problems. More tears eluded from her eyes’..she picked up her clothes and wore them
How are you angel? The unknown guy asked immediately he came in unannounced’
What do you want from me? Mitchell asked frightened’
Your pretty body…he advanced towards her.
You jerk, stay away from me.she turned the door knob before he could come closer and flew for her dear life’
She scrubbed her body till she saw traces of blood’..she wanted to wash his scent from her body’…the thought of another man touching her kills her slowly. .how was she going to explain to her husband without him thinking is a pay back’
She felt guilty. …
Tare cleared her desk happily’…it was friday,her sweatie pie was coming today. ..she had so much to tell him.she carried her blue gucci handbag and headed out of her office’
Cancel all the appointment I have left’
She needed to pick her daughter from school, get some items from the grocery store and prepare her husband favourite meal.

she entered her porshe car and drove off’
