TO FIND GRACE Episode 10
“Ben who was that girl?” Chipo asked looking at Ben as he watched Grace Walk away talking on the phone.
“She is um, am,” he paused rubbing his head.
“I told you walking out here like this is not the right thing to do, anyone can see us out here” Ben walked faster back to his car with Chipo trotting behind him.
“relax, she is just a girl and from the look of things she didn’t know am not your wife, see what I tell you, we look good together” Chipo smiled holding Ben`s chin he pushed her hand away.
“I knew the first time I allowed myself to fail for your trap I was in trouble, you are so insistent my God” he shook his head placing the keys in the ignition.
“Admit it already, I give you what you deserve Ben, am the right woman for you not that polished lawyer who does not know how to care for a man.” Chipo laughed and before she could say another word, Ben raised his hand at her.
“Say another word about my wife and I swear to God I will push you out of this car” he warned seriously and Chipo withdraw leaning back on the seat with a smile.
“If only you were not sleeping with me I would say you love her so much” Chipo murmured and the eye she got from Ben made her sank back defeated.
“I still got you in any case” she whispered in her head and faced ahead the road.
Ben`s heart was bleeding inside, he knew what he was doing was going to crash Jena if at all she was to find out. Seeing Grace made him even guiltier, the innocent Girl looked at the woman he was cheating with, with so much respect and love he felt bad.
He remembered how Chipo had lured him to sleep with him the first time. He had knocked off from work but decided to sit in his car outside the building watching as people left till it was dark.
“Where are you coming from Jena, I called you several time but you couldn’t answer my calls” Ben had confronted his wife one day seeing her rushing inside the house.
“I went to see Muma My love, she had issues with her child so I went with her to the clinic” Jena quickly cooked up a lie. She had not prepared herself to explain herself and she spoke the first thing that came to her mind.
“Muma Huh?” Ben shook his head walking away. What Jena didn’t know was that Ben had called Muma earlier and she had no idea where her friend was. He didn’t ask further knowing from history his wife won’t say a thing. With her guilty Jena went to bed sad that night.
Ben was still lost thinking about his wife when they came a soft tap on the window making him wipe his face turning down the window to see who it was.
“Someone wants to see you sir” the Guard told him.
“What? This time of the day? Who could that be?” he asked surprised seeing it was almost 20 PM.
“I don’t really know the woman sir, but she insisted on seeing you saying…” the guard could not finish explaining himself when Chipo walked to them.
“Hey Ben! “She smiled her perfect fitting dress leaving her cleavage exposed her inner skin so revealing.
“What are you doing here?” he asked surprised.
“Am gonna leave you two” the guard excused himself.
“Thank you kamwendo” Ben responded to the guard.
“I came to see you Ben, Mat gave me your line and from the first time you knew my line, you have not picked up my calls. I needed to see you Ben, you are the only on who can help me” she lowered her face deliberately.
“What is going on, is this some kind of game Chipo?” he asked
“No, I couldn’t be here if it wasn’t important. My son is sick Ben and like I sent you that message which you never bothered to respond to, I need help” her voice was breaking Ben thought she was serious.
“What is wrong with your son and how can I help you?” he asked her without moving an inch from the car.
“He is sick, the doctors say he has some kind of cancer in his leg and I need money to get him an operation. Please help me. Am just a nurse and my salary doesn’t allow me to cater for his bills. I will return it when I save up. You are the only one I could think of Ben, please help me” she had pleaded her eyes teary Ben believed her.
“Come on in, I will take you home and tomorrow I will see if I can find something for your child. Mind you am not doing this for you Chipo. I hope you don’t misinterpret my gesture” he warned beforehand but when they got to her house she had invited him in and reluctantly Ben found himself inside. He got the chance to see the sick boy and was glad Chipo was not lying about the boy`s sickness.
“Well, I got to go now Chipo, am already running late” he had told her and she saw him to the gate.
“Thank you Ben, I have always known you were a good man, your wife is lucky to have you” she smiled at him.
“Well, I will pass through and bring the money tomorrow so you can get your son the help he needs” Ben responded and drove away.
Chipo made a happy dance knowing she got him where she wanted him to be. The sickness of her son was a better way into the life of the man she loved. She walked inside humming to a love song.
The following Morning, Ben kept his promise and went to take the money Chipo had asked for. He walked to the door and knocked softly.
“Come in the door is open!” Chipo shouted from inside and Ben pushed in the door walking in.
“It’s me, Chipo” Ben shouted and he could not finish his sentence she walked out of the shower a short towel around her body she was still so wet. He paused and took his time watching her his heart racing for a moment he forgot where he was.
“Um, am sorry I didn’t “he stammered and Chipo smiled knowingly walking away seductively Ben like a fool followed her to her room.
“I brought this money Chipo, it’s a 10 thousand, 2 thousand more than what you asked for in case of anything else” he murmured standing there as she bit her lips invitingly.
“Are you sure you don’t want to stay for a while, I mean I can make some breakfast for you “she smiled walking towards him.
“Um, am okey thank you, I have to go now” Ben walked away but she blocked him throwing away the towel and grabbing his neck closer to herself. Ben could feel the fresh body wash on her skin and her wet lips playing on his neck made him swallow hard his man was struggling to stay down. What with the mood of his wife at home, he had not relieved himself for days.
“stop Chipo, this is not right” he whispered but his desire was so evident she pulled him to the bed he followed silently panting hard as he tried to warn himself of the danger of doing what he was about to do.
“I love you Ben, you have always been the one for me, please don’t turn me down, only this once, make me feel like a woman again and I swear I won’t bother you again” she whispered as she pulled down his zip thrusting her hands in his boxers proud he was hard and wet for her.
Ben Could not take the pressure anymore, he pushed her to the bed and within a few seconds he was getting into her excited as his body got the satisfaction he was looking for yet his conscience was fully alert the moment he was calm he stood up sharply shaking his head.
“Oh dammit! This is so wrong, we shouldn’t have Chipo. We shouldn’t have” he kept saying making Chipo smiled at him.
“We are both adults and attracted to each other Ben, stop acting like a child” she laughed as he dressed up quickly like someone was after him.
“It was a mistake and this should never happen again” he pointed his fingers at her and stormed out.
Well, he got it all wrong with thinking he was going to stay away from her, she made sure she made herself available. Ben`s shame and guilty kept him away from his wife. Jena`s secret mission too, made her close in making the couple less and less close to each other.
Chipo took advantage of this fact like she was aware of what was going on and made sure she gave Ben what Jane was not able to at the moment.
Now Ben was feeling his marriage drifting away and that ate him up every day. Seeing Grace that day made things worse as he kept thinking of how pathetic he looked in the girl who was old enough to be his daughter see him cheat on his wife with a woman who kept manipulating him and like a fool he was failing into her traps every day.
“Get out” He looked at Chipo as he drove to her yard.
“What? Just like that sweetie?” she looked at him
“Yes, I know I shouldn’t have let this thing get this far Chipo. This is over, so get the hell out and never call me again, not on phone or come to my office again” he added seriously. Chipo shook her head laughing.
“Hm. after laying with me in all styles like a b**** you think I will let you just walk away? You have no idea what awaits you Ben, no idea at all” she frowned getting down the vehicle.
“What is that supposed to mean Chipo?” he asked her before she could leave.
“Just that sweetie, you are mine and there is no going back” she kissed his forehead and walked away leaving Ben upset he breathed out to relax himself.
Driving home, Ben found Jena seated in the couch crying softly her handbag thrown to the floor.
“My love! What is going on?” he asked rushing to hold his wife.
“Jena looked at Ben`s face. She was about to tell him she found out the remains of the ashes from the accident had no traces of their daughter but she saw the lip print of his forehead and the cologne on him told her he was with a woman.
“Where are you coming from Ben?” she asked wiping her tears away.
“Stop diverting my questions my love, you are crying what is going on? What does it matter where am coming from?” he uttered and that made Jena stand up her hands on her face. Now it was double the hurt. The fact that she knew her daughter was taken away and now that she had just lost her husband to another woman.
“God what have I done wrong? “She cried out walking away from Ben her face so wet.
