I stared at Richard as he entered. He was obviously very angry but I didn’t give a d–n. He did not notice my tears and I wiped it off immediately.
“where are you coming from sir?” I asked sarcastically. He rubbed his palm on his head.
“see, I can’t explain anything now?” he responded I was taken aback.
“You can’t what? You better start explaining. How dare you leave the house in the middle of an important celebration in our lives, come back this late and give me that crap? Do you know how worried I was? I called how many times? Let me check… 42 times, only to find your phone inside and now you tell me that you can’t explain anything now?” I lamented.
“Alright, sorry. Are you ok now?” he dropped coldly and stormed into the bedroom. That only made me angrier. My anger increased several degrees but I kept it inside. My tummy was screaming for food but my mouth was not ready to accept anything. This is a thing that occurs whenever I am angry.
I entered the room and started changing my clothes. Richard was in the shower and I did not care because I was in no mood to have any bath at all, besides, I took my bath before the party began and I did not dance or do anything that would warrant another bath. The anniversary was just a total disaster.
I wore a nightie and got into my side of the big bed. I pulled the blanket up to my chin and switched off the bedside lamp. I closed my eyes as tears flowed down my cheeks. I pinged Prisca, telling her not to worry that Richard was already back, switched off my phone and placed it beside the lamp.
I heard the shower go off and Richard step out. I pretended to be asleep but I knew that Richard was not easily fooled. The light came and I felt him sit in front of me.
“sweet heart. Lina” he called but I did not respond. He gently kissed my checks and went to the other side of the bed to sleep. More tears slipped out of my closed eyes unhindered as I remembered all the events of the day.
