Adanna stares at her laptop wondering what her next step will be,its been over two weeks since she and Adams decided to continue living in sin and she has to admit she had never felt happier, she sometimes wonder if its because she knows what she is doing is wrong that’s why it seems so sweet.

Her days now have become sort of like a timetable, like she is still the devoted wife and all that but once her husband goes to work and she is through with her house chores she heads over to Adam’s place.

Sometimes they spend the whole day in bed,other times they just chill and keep each other company,there are also times when they don’t speak but just be around

each other. It was times like this that he will be painting while she just seat and stare,which is while today she decided to head on with her plans for a website.

She glanced across the room and Adams was busy painting and a Chris Brown’s track was coming from the stereo. Chris was actually Adams favorite

musician and some how she has found herself listening to a lot of his songs that’s she considers herself a fan too. She faces her laptop again and then after contemplating for a while, she decides to open a personal blog. She has been going through a lot so it just seem best that she does something like this who knows maybe she could empower a young Lady somewhere.

She thought of the name for the blog,she wanted something personal not just any name. She kept trying different domain names and finally she settled on Like Adanna dot com. She quickly registered the domain and quickly started on setting up the blog’s layout. She wanted something different from the other blogs she visited yet she also wanted it to be personal,whereby her audience will go hand in hand with her without feeling any indifference.

“Adanna” she heard her name so she looked up to see a smiling Adams standing in front of her,he quickly removed her laptop from her laps and

placed on a table and then pulled her up to meet him.


Samuel is leaning back on a pillow as he laid lazily on Kylie’s bed,they had just finished a marathon of steam sex. He admires her from behind while she was busy putting on her clothes. He knows he should get up to and put himself together so he can go back home but he just could not remove his eyes from lusting after her and when he couldn’t take it any longer he reached out for her but as he tried to pull her towards him she pulled

herself away from him

“What’s wrong?” He asked


“Common don’t lie to me” he said as he drew her closer and used his arms to wrap around her

“Hmmmm, okay I don’t want to sound pushy but you told me months ago you were going to divorce your wife so we can start making arrangements for our wedding but you are yet to do anything”

“Look honey this things take time,I can’t just wake up one morning and decide to divorce her,I need to make it as amicable as I can but I promise you I will try to rectify that as soon as possible”

“Well it has to be fast considering the fact that am pregnant and get this I am not ready to be anybody’s baby mama so you better step your game up”

Feeling like he has just been drenched with a bucket of water he quickly removed his arms from around her and quickly turned her around to face him

“What did you just say? I thought I made it clear when we started this relationship that I did not want kids”

“Oga this is not kids its a child and we both got me pregnant so put on your big boy shorts and get on with the next step”

“Look this woman you better think again,I have made it very clear I don’t want kids at least not now, you have to see a doctor and carry out an abortion immediately”

“That is not going to happen,so you better tell your wife about us or else I will do it myself”

“Stop baffling you know you can’t do that”

“Try me and see”

“You know what am not going to stay her and listen to your bulls***” he said as he came down from the bed and hurriedly put on his clothes and left.

Kylie stood still at the spot she has been when there were arguing, she had tears in her eyes. She never could have imagine such a reaction from Samuel, she had been so happy when she was told she was pregnant and thought of possible ways she could break it to him,a little part of her had wished that maybe he will finally propose to her. Well if he thinks she is like that bush lady he calls a wife that he could just toss about he better think again because she is not giving up without a fight.

Adanna has been working on her blog for a while now.She focused on positive things only,she rarely did celebrity gossip unless it was something she could use to empower a young person out there. Little by little her blog started getting popular online,there were no adverts yet but her views kept increasing daily and her comments section were always interactive. It was from the interactions on her comments section that made

her decided to let her readers send in their own stories on how they overcame an obstacle in their life so she could post on her blog.

Her life had definitely turned around for the best,she was currently content with herself,tho she felt a pang of guilt for being a cheat once in a while.

Adams has been sweet so far and all she could think about was why hadn’t she met him before Samuel,her life would not have been this complicated now. She was going through her mails when she saw a reply to her request.

Hi Adanna,

I saw your post asking your readers to send in mails about challenges they have been able to overcome so I decided to share mine.

Am 37 years old and always thought when I was younger that I will become doctor but that couldn’t be possible because I come from a poor background

and my family could not afford to pay my fees through medical school,since that dream fail,I stopped dreaming. I just said to me myself that I will

let life lead me by itself and that was how I got admission into the university and when to read religion and philosophy ( something I had no interest in ) and before you could say jack I was through with school and I did my NYSC almost immediately. It was after I was through with my service year that it dawned on me that I had no plans for my life,when I wanted to make something out of myself,love found me and in a blink of an eye I was married and now a mother of three but I always felt empty inside. I started reading motivational books and it started making me want to dream again. I thought about my life and really examined it and then I realized that I had not wanted to be a medical doctor because I liked the profession but rather because I wanted to help people and it was then I decided since helping people was what I wanted to do then I will give it a try. I quit my job (I was an assistant in an office) , it wasn’t easy because my husband did not understand why I did that and it brought a lot of issues but we both were able to settle our differences and he agreed to stand behind in whatever thing I choose to do. I did a lot of thinking and praying before I settled on what I wanted to do. I ended up opening an orphanage home,I go to villages with crisis and bring the children and treat those that needed medical attention. I did not really have much money except my savings and that was what I used to start.

Little by little word started to go around about my shelter and visitors started to come visit. Its been 6

months since I started and am telling you,I have never felt more alive than now,just the knowledge that am making a difference in this little kids life makes me sleep soundly at night. We currently have 50 children and while we still have some challenges especially financial kind, I still give it my best. Most of the kids couldn’t speak English before they came but right

now its a different story,am currently trying to strike a deal with a school so they can continues their education.

I hope my story can help someone out there realize that its never to late to start to achieve your dreams.

Adanna had tears in her eyes when she was through reading the mail and scrolling down she saw pictures the lady attached to the mail, she saw pictures of lovely children and some of certificates about the orphanage, she quickly replied the woman and thanked her and also to ask for her account number so she could assist. She quickly updated the lady’s mail to her blog and shutdown her laptop. She started thinking about her life and all the things she thought she would have achieved at her current age but had not due to one

excuse or another.

Samuel seated in his office trying to work on the piling files on his desk but to no avail. He kept thinking about the bombshell Kylie dropped some days ago,he kept wondering what he will do. He contemplated telling

Adanna but he couldn’t bring himself down to do it,he might not love her like the way he once did but she is the kind of woman he liked being married to,she was cool and knew how to follow orders. Whatever he told he

was what she did. He did not want children now and she has been using contraceptives and in the few cases when the pills didn’t work she had followed his advice to have an abortion.

She might be a boring woman but she was beautiful and she never nagged or quarrelled and he sure enjoys the stares he go from other men when even he brought her with him to an occasion. No,he can’t just let her go he needs to think of plan and he needs to do that soonest before Kylie does something unpredictable and he will loose on both ends. Maybe he should just get Adanna pregnant too,I mean if she had a child of her own she would mind him having a second wife

but then again he doesn’t know how long it will take her to conceive.

Many men are married to two women these days so he wouldn’t be the first,maybe he should just marry Kylie as a secret wife and then tell Adanna after everything has been concluded, that way she will have no choice that to

remain his wife, yes that is what he will do. He thought as he smiled to himself and tried once again to work on the files in front of him.

Kylie was eating home made doughnut and watching a movie on the television when her door bell rang. She wondered who could be the person since she wasn’t expecting anyone,she was shocked to see Samuel outside since he had not made any attempt to contact her since that day he stomped out of her house.

What do you want? ” she asked

“Hi babe” he replied as he tried to kiss but she she took some steps back

“OK fine,why don’t you just lemme in and hear me out first”

She starred at him for a while and then she made room for him to enter.

When he was seated she offered him a drink but he refused insisting he just came to talk.

“So Kylie here is the thing, I was thinking you and I should get married before the baby comes”

“Hmmm OK, then what are you going to do with that woman in your house? “

“Nothing she is going to remain there”

“Oh my goodness,do I look like second wife material to you?”

“Am not saying that am I? “

“No,you don’t need to say it. Your actions already show it”

“See am trying my best here,this was not what I bargained for an just trying to make lemonade with the lemon giving to me period”

“So lemme see this,I get married to you,where will I stay? Or am I going to share the same house with your wife”

“I didn’t think it through but am sure when we get to that road we will cross it, see Kylie you just have to understand with me okay”

“Understand what exactly that you want to make me a laughing stock or what?”

“If I divorce my wife to marry you then you will become the latest gossip and home wrecker,why don’t we get married first and then we can talk about me divorcing her,how bout that plus that will even reduce suspicion from your side”

“So long as you divorce her then am okay”

“I hear you loud and clear bae” he replied as he walked towards her to give her a kiss.
