I woke up that morning at 07 am. I had fallen asleep after I pretended to be sleeping. I heard Chris walk in the house and he didn’t come to bed.
It was a great relief for me cause I couldn’t have taken it having him so close. I started wondering how Chris felt. If I had cheated on him with another man once and all the guilty was piled up in my heart, how about him who did it everyday? I asked myself.
Instead of waking up to pray that morning as I always did, my conscience couldn’t allow me. I felt I had betrayed God and kneeling to pray would just make me more of a hypocrite than I already was.
I grabbed the bible and placed it right back shaking my head. I walked to the sitting room and found it empty, “where the hell did this man sleep then?” I whispered.
” of course” I sighed as I walked to the other bedroom. I pushed the door open and when I saw the two people curled up in the bed, my heart stopped for a bit.
” what the hell” I shouted standing in the door way.
I saw Chris move slightly,he opened his eyes and looked at me. ” please can you stop yelling? Your voice is too annoying. I don’t want you to disturb my beautiful woman here. She gave me the best night ever and she deserves a better rest” he whispered looking at me.
The thought of answering back came rushing in my mind but I pushed it back. I closed the door silently obeying Chris’s request to not wake his precious woman.
I felt betrayed, I felt useless and walked to the kitchen. Turning on the electric kettle as the urge to go and spill the whole lot of its hot content on the people in another room tempted me.
I lifted it when it stopped boiling and walked towards the room they were in. Pushing it slightly and staring at them. Chris was now on top of her kissing her as she moaned and held him close.
On second thoughts I sighed and closed back the door. I wasn’t going to give them the pleasure of enjoying the fact that I was being affected by them.
So I instead went in the bathroom, took a long bath as i kept on hearing them moaning and laughing. ” enjoy it you b******, I had my own share last night and I can have it any time I want” i spat angrily.
After dressing up in a simple boot cut Jean and a sleeveless top I went to prepare some food for myself and the love birds. I wasn’t sure what was really going on in my mind right that moment. Someone would say I was being crazy letting my own husband in my matrimonial home with another woman.
Well, I guess I got tired of wishing him to change for the better. After all it doesn’t matter where he was doing it from he had been cheating on me for a number of years we have been together, so why give a damn now. After all , whatever I was to do, scream, insult them or whatever, he would simply find another woman elsewhere.
I hummed to a song as I set the table.
Preparing Chris ‘s favourite English breakfast. I checked to make sure all was set and slowly walked to the spare bedroom.
I knocked softly and Chris’ voice shouted back” what is it woman? Can’t you leave us in peace already?” He asked
” am sorry honey, just that I thought you people can come and have some breakfast. I have finishing setting the table”.
I waited for them to appear. After I heard them argue about whether the food was poisoned or not I heard their foot steps walk towards the dinning table.
” please take heart, I cannot kill my own husband with poison” i said looking at a short lady, light skinned and long brown hair. She was pretty but she didn’t make me envy her. Somehow I felt I was better than her.
” for better for worse right honey?” I teased looking at Chris who’s eyes kept on the table where the food was.
” welcome to our home my dear” I smiled at the lady and she looked at Chris then back at me.
I was sure she was wondering what kind of a woman would be so calm when her husband had brought in another woman in their home.
” Thank you” she murmured shyly.
” please feel at home. You have no idea how pleased I am to have seen you here. You know my husband and I have not been together for a long time and I was beginning to get worried that maybe something was wrong with him. Now that I heard him moaning and enjoying with you am so relieved” I added with a chuckle as Chris chocked himself with a cup of coffee to his mouth.
He looked at me sharply, his face getting so upset. He was almost saying something but I excused myself after grabbing a piece of sausage and my cup.
” please excuse me, I have to go. There’s someone i have to see this morning. Have a good day people” I smiled and walked to the kitchen.
It was silent for a while, then I heard spoons clicking and I smiled to myself ” remember no one beats my cooking you b******, you cannot resist my food” I spat and went to the bedroom, grabbing my hand bag and car keys before heading out.
I drove around aimlessly, my mind was so loud I didn’t know how to put my thoughts together. In my heart the guilty I also cheated on Chris was so deep I didn’t know how to even get upset with him now that him and me were the same.
I called my friend Linda,
” boi where are you? Can i see you now?” I asked her when she picked the call.
” yeah sure come home boi, my mother was even asking about you. She will be happy to see you” she added happily.
” alright will be there in less than 10 minutes boi” I cut the line and drove to Kaunda square where my friend Linda stayed with her mother.
Her father died when she was still young and she was raised by her Aunty in Luasnshya were we meet years back .
After she found a Job here in Lusaka she had moved in with her mom in their family house. Linda was a very prayerful woman, she’s the one who encouraged me not to give up on my marriage and leave it all to God.
I however had not told her about my latest mission of playing a saviour for the married men. I definitely knew she was not going to support it.

” oh boi, am so sorry you are going through all that” she sighed when I finished explaining to him about what was happening at home .
” oh my God how can Chris bring another woman in your matrimonial home?” She shook her head.
” I have no idea my friend, but am not going to wait up and watch him destroy my life. He’s gone way to far and this time am not going to be a stupid wife I have been. Am standing my ground and he will know better than mess with a woman.” I snapped wiping the tear that was threatening to spill over.
” oh no Stella I don’t like the way you are taking this whole thing. What do you mean you are standing your ground? Just remember vengeance belongs to God boi just let God take care of all this” she held my hand.
I smiled sadly. ” I slept with Mike yesterday”
I told her without warning and Linda stood up shocked.
” No! You didn’t! ” she shouted
” yeah I did. I couldn’t control it boi and I so much enjoyed it. What do you expect? My husband does not touch me. He has not looked at me as a woman in I don’t know how many months. I fall yes, and i was guilty. But you know what? ” I let a small laugh, ” now I don’t feel a thing. In fact I want to go and have it with him again.” I told her while her mouth kept open.
I was sure she was binding the demon that had gotten in me.
” Jesus! Stella. Do you even hear yourself. ? You know how crazy that your ex boyfriend is. Don’t tell me you are going to tolerate him. This is not right and you know that.” She scolded me.
I looked at her and listened as she went on quoting scriptures and telling me to confess my sins and flee from temptations.
” Don’t give the devil a way, that’s exactly what he’s trying to do . Please I beg you in the name of God, don’t give in to the desires of your fresh” she held my hands.
At the moment I couldn’t even get to listen to her. I just nodded my head to make her stop talking.
She prepared lunch and we eat together as she told me about the pastor that had proposed to marry her.
” Well, some of us are trying to escape marriage, others are desiring to go in. Life is funny huh!” I laughed.
I couldn’t get back home that afternoon. I decided to take a turn and go to East park mall. I needed to avoid going home. Not knowing if I would stand Chris and another woman in my house any longer. After going round doing some window shopping I bought myself a cup of ice cream and sat outside hungry lion as I browsed through my phone.
Then it clicked, I had met a man a week before. A married man. I had to respond to his many missed calls over the days.
” helo!” I heard his voice on the other end.
” hey, sorry I had misplaced my phone in the house and I just found it this morning. I have just seen a lot of texts and missed calls.” I lied shifting in my sit like he could see through me.
” am so happy you called I couldn’t stop thinking about you gorgeous. So when can we meet?” He asked excitedly.
” find me at East Park” I informed him and cut the line closing it back.
” well now am officially a married and at the same time Single woman. Since married men need to be given the taste of their own medicine, then I will definitely give them the honour.” I smiled putting down the ice cream cup.
