THE RICH MAN’S WIFE: 5-6
THE RICH MAN’S WIFE
The next day, Susan’s Father visited her as he promised.
Susan tried her best to entertain her father from what they had at home. She prepared a very delicious food for her Father.
After that meal Susan’s Father inquired about Femi.
“Father, I have not set my eyes on him for the past six months and if I call him, he won’t take my calls” Susan replied
And Susan’s Father felt bad for his daughter.
“What has gotten into him, I hope you have not wronged him in anyway?” Susan’s Father asked sadly
“No father, I haven’t” Susan responded
“I thought it was just the money problem, I never knew it has gotten to this stage” Susan’s Father added and he consoled his daughter and urged her to be strong and to be prayerful
Susan’s Father stayed for few days with the hope of meeting Femi but he never returned home and then the old man returned to the village
Susan continued with her little business and she prayed everyday for her home and for her husband’s long life. No doubt Susan missed Femi so much and she had thought of ways to get Femi’s love back. Everyday she spoke to Femi’s trusted workers to inquire about the well being of her husband. Susan always felt at ease each time, she gets a positive response from them.
One-day it was Femi’s birthday and Susan decided to make up with her husband, she was ready to plead to her husband to return home. She tried her best to look good, she had bought a fairly used clothes from the market the day before and was ready to pay her run away husband a visit at his business location.
She arrived there in no time and there, Susan was warmly welcomed by her husband’s workers and they directed her to her husband’s office. The receptionist who knew Susan as the CEO’s wife, didn’t inform Femi about his wife’s arrival because no one knew that the couple were having issues.
Susan went into her husband’s office and She almost fainted when she met him cuddling and kissing a fair busty lady.
“What?, Femi what is the meaning of this? now I know why you have been misbehaving lately, .
So is because of this thing, But you have forgotten about my sacrifices and the unconditional love that I have for you, how could you be so heartless, you abadoned me and your children, for six months your children had not set their eyes on you, how could you be so heartless?” Susan broke down in tears. The fair busty lady that Femi was smooching left quietly and Femi bowed his head in shame.
“You caused it, have you looked at yourself in the mirror lately, you look unkempt and unattractive and all you do is nag because of money” Femi managed to say
“I look unkempt?, when last did you give me money to make my hair, Femi you stopped taking care of my needs and forbade me from taking a Job and now you are blaming me, this is the last straw, I can’t take this anymore.” Susan said and walked out in tears.
Immediately Susan left, it was as if Femi came back to his senses.
“What happened to me?, did I just make my Susan cry?” He asked himself. He ran after Susan but she ignored him.
For the past two years, Femi had been under a spell, When he stopped taking care of his wife, he ran into trouble.
His wife stopped praying for him and that was when he met Cassandra, the busty fair Lady, Susan caught him with. Cassandra was a diabolic lady, who knew spells and charms. And for the past few months she had been milking Femi dry.
As Femi returned to his office, He was in a deep thought, he couldn’t explain what was happening to him, he remembered how he had met Cassandra, two years ago, Femi was on a business lunch with a new client in a nice restaurant, when Cassandra walked in.
He appreciated her beauty and sincerely speaking Cassandra’s complexion and beauty will make any man look at her more often as long as she was around, Femi lost concentration with the little meeting he was having with his new client, that day Femi ended the little meeting and asked the client to go because he couldn’t concentrate.
Devil so planned it that Femi and Susan were at war with each other, Susan had just lost her mother at the time and she was so pissed with her husband. That the last thing on her mind was to pray for her heartless husband.
The first few days Femi met Cassandra, Femi had given her a cheque for 3 million, everything was just coming back to Femi’s memory as tears rolled from his eyes.
Femi couldn’t wait till the close of the day, he ran home but was shocked when he found out that his wife had moved out with thier children. He looked everywhere for her and his children but it was futile, nobody knew where she was not even her father. It was as if Femi was in eternity – the time was just too slow and he couldn’t explain what had happened to him.
The gateman noticed Femi’s sadness when he returned home without Susan and thier kids and the old man was just wondering – what’s happening to Femi, his boss, Someone who lost his mother would not be as sad more than Femi that day.
“Sir, what’s wrong?” The gate man asked.
Femi was mute.
“Sir, I’m sorry oh for meddling, but why did you ask madam to pack out of the house?, Madam had suffered so much, she even beg me for money at times, if I have I do give her, the worst is she sells moi moi( beans cake) to survive, last week the food stuff in the store got exhausted, sir, I called you uncountable times but you didn’t pick, your children were hungry, but when thier mother returned from Hawking beans cake, she bought food for them” The Gate man added and Femi almost died of shock.
“I never asked my wife to leave, it was what.. she saw me with another woman… My wife hawked beans cake?..My wife beg for money, when I’m alive and well?..My own children hungry.,…. and I did nothing about it when I returned home?”
Femi stammered soberly
“You didn’t come home that day, infact for the past six months sir, you have not returned home, madam and the children suffered oh” The gate man responded and Fred burst into uncontrollable tears
“What have I done? What happened to me? What did Cassandra do to me?” Femi said in tears.
He finally opened up to the gate man and he told him how he had lost himself for the past two years.
“I don’t know what have happened to me, it just as if I’m waking up from sleep” Femi said in tears. And the middle aged security man had to admit to Femi that he was charmed.
“My uncle was a spiritualist, people came to him for such charms, spells and enchantment. Sir, you are very lucky you got your senses back, people who are charmed don’t recover, infact they go mad, I guess your wife’s prayer had saved you, because lately madam has been very prayerful, every night for the past few weeks, she was always mentioning your name in prayers, I always heard her voice” The gate man revealed and Femi nodded in agreement because he had noticed that he got himself immediately he saw his wife.
“Yes you are right, the spell must had been broken immediately she came to my office, oh my wife, oh Susan I’m sorry, please come back” Femi muttered in tears.
THE RICH MAN’S WIFE
All through that evening Femi was remembering his encounter with Cassandra, the evil lady, He remembered his first date with her, The strange woman had took him to her place for their date, Cassandra lived in a two bedroom apartment, Femi Can never forget that first date, Cassandra welcomed him with open arms and asked him what he would like to take, of which Femi responded “anything”. Later they had sex for 30 minutes, Cassandra was a sex machine and after that Sex, Femi lost himself, he didn’t know what he was doing anymore.
Since that day, Femi couldn’t do without Cassandra and for the past two years all he did was to follow her orders. Cassandra noticed that Femi always wants to return home to his wife and children and she hated it whenever Femi returned home to his family, Cassandra decided to stop him from going home,
She ordered Femi never to return to his family and he obeyed, for the past six months Femi lived with Cassandra the strange woman, Susan who was unaware of what was happening, thought Femi didn’t come home because he was angry with her. All those times,
that Femi didn’t come home, he stayed over with Cassandra in her two bedroom apartment and everyday, he gave her huge amount of money. Things would had remained that way if Susan did not start praying again, She began to pray again and the spell Cassandra placed on her husband got broken.
The following day, Femi Went to his father and he told him everything, The old man was shocked, he had heard of such spells but he never believed it will be used on his only son, Femi asked his father to accompany him to their church as he needed a complete deliverance,
They arrived their family church and the pastor prayed for Femi and told him that his wife’s unconditional love and prayers was what delivered him,
“you would have run mad, that’s why we men, should be careful, all these pretty girls are diabolic and desperate” The pastor told him and he shivered in fear. Femi was transfered to a prayer mountain where he fasted for days and prayed for himself.
Not many men will receive mercy as Femi had received from God.
Femi’s father had to reveal to Femi what really transpired that made his mother elope to Europe.
“Your mother is not your biologically mother, your mother and I met at the University and we were so much in love,
your mother got pregnant twice for me when will were still in the University and I made her abort those pregnancies, so when we got married long after we graduated from the University, the doctor told us that her womb was damaged and she would not be able to fall pregnant again, your mother was devasted, months later I hooked up with one of my lover, got her pregnant and when the child was born, the child was you, I brought you home when you were just 5 years old and I lied to my wife that I had adopted you from the orphanage and that was how she became your mother,
but when she found out the truth that you we’re my biological son, she was devasted and she demanded for a divorce, which I declined at first but when I caught him talking to another man on the phone, I was forced to let her go, we got divorced and she got half of what I had and she left the country to Europe and I concluded that she might left with her lover, my son you see, it was all my fault” Femi’s father said calmly.
“So my life has been a lie, so mom is not my biological mother? assuming I knew I wouldn’t have interferred in that matter, Dad why are you just telling me now, why? I thought mom was wrong, I thought my mother was guilty, I never knew all these transpired between you and mom,
I’m so foolish, I shouldn’t have took out all my anger on my own wife, what does she got to do in the matter?, I wasn’t thinking straight, I was frustrated and emotionally I was confused, if I had reasoned properly, I would have known that Susan will never misbehave, she is my back bone and a good woman, she could lay down her life for me, it’s obvious I took her love for granted,
Susan had sacrificed a whole lot for me, She stood by me when you, my own father rejected and abadoned me because we had a heated misunderstanding, I shouldn’t have treated my wife so badly, she stopped praying for me and I fell into the net of a diabolic lady, what would have happened if Susan didn’t show up at my office to wish me a happy birthday,
I would have handed over all I and my wife laboured for to a strange woman, oh God thank you, how can I repay you Lord” Femi said in tears
“You mean all your wife told me was true? Why would you stop taking care of your wife, even if your mother did betray me, that doesn’t mean every woman is bad, you shouldn’t have been so unreasonable, I never knew that the constant marital problems you had with your wife was because of me, oh I’m sorry my son, please forgive me” Femi’s father responded remorsefully
“Mom, will always be my mom, its doesn’t matter if we are not related by blood, she is the only mother I know, I don’t care about what happened between you both, I will look for ways to reconnect with my mom” Femi added
Femi started arranging his life, he reconnected with his mother on Facebook and the woman was so happy to hear from him again. Femi then began his search for his wife and kids. All Femi wanted was to bring his wife and children back home .
Every one who heard Femi’s horrifying story, points out that it was just God’s mercy that Saved him.
And they urged him to look for his prayerful wife and reconcile with her, even thier pastor said the same thing.
Susan who was unaware of what was happening, was still mad at her husband. She was heartbroken and was always in tears
“I will never forgive him” she had told herself uncountable times.
She had returned to the village with her two children, She had instructed her father never to disclose her whereabout with anyone not even Femi or his family members .
” I don’t want to have anything to do with Femi or his family, I’m done and never going back to that marriage, when I put myself together, I will surely divorce Femi and move on with my children” She had told her Father.
She was in tears and her father consoled her and wiped her tears. ” My daughter, Everything will be fine, never stop praying my child” …..Susan’s Father added.
Susan tried everything she could to forget Femi but to her displeasure, her heart still beats for him.
