LABELS - WOMEN TALES

DO YOU LOVE GREY? WEDNESDAYS 6 PM

PART 2 SERIES 8



James slept with some of my trainee nurses; goodness I was so embarrassed.

He harassed my kid sister but thank God nothing happened.

The victory of it all,  is that despite all, I am alive to tell this tale.

My husband developed high blood pressure and diabetes, later on.

As a nurse I managed his condition quite well.

But he died suddenly after a particular visit to his new lady friend.

How did I know this? He was rushed home unconscious and died after some few hours.

James rendered me a widow after 22 years of marriage, a woman in my prime.

Some few months before his death I learnt through his phone conversations,

text messages and numerous lies of ‘traveling to Abuja for a contract’ that he had another woman, whom he housed and impregnated.

A man in his early fifties – he gave me a story to tell you.

He was feared and loved by his children, but silently  I hated and loved him!

Its been few years after his death and the home has never been the same. It has become peaceful for my children and I at least our lost joy is back.

Sometimes we imagine a scenario  whereby one of his numerous women, show up to see the supposed father of their child; and I truly await such day, I will gladly show them his grave.

They will meet me and I will ask for a test of paternity!

All I have achieved after his death has been truly miraculous

Never thought I could prosper this far, I am now free.

But sometimes, I miss the companionship and fights we had.

That's it ! And I can tell you dear sisters –

Learn from my mistakes. To the brothers,  learn from James mistakes.

My name is Adebimpe, I survived my marriage and now I share my tale with you.

Thank you for reading.
