I kicked around some small stones outside her gate angrily. “How dare she walks out on me like that?” I scoffed
Stella had always been mine and call me possessive or whatever but for me she was mine. I didn’t even care she was married. The inferior kind of a person her husband was didn’t even scare me. It was bad enough that she betrayed our love and married the next guy that went her way forgetting our promises.
I heard the news and the time I was getting back home I was told she was married.
” please mom, just give me her address I need to go and see her and at least, congratulate her” I had deceived her mother.
She gave me the address and it took me some months before I finally decided to start seeing her. I first stalked her and later on her husband. Spying his moves. When I discovered he was a wasted guy who placed beer before his wife and had some weakness with women, I knew I could capitalise on it and create a way to my woman.
I was so hurt when I got back home to be with her such that I ended up sleeping with the next girl I had proposed. To add to my burden, she had gotten pregnant barely 4 months of being with her. My family as usual with their Christian values talked me into marrying her. Saying it was the best thing for my unborn baby.
I had thought maybe trying to get with my now wife would get me to forget Stella but i just couldn’t.
My wife was the I dont care kind of person and over time I realised she was too much of a ‘yes boss,’ and ‘whatever’ kind of wife and for me that didn’t work out well.
I liked my woman to have some intelligence. Being able to give me ideas and challenge me whenever necessary. Not someone I would push around like a sack and she would simply obey.
I recall how my friends would say that was a good wife cause She doesnt give pressure, but I found her boring. Even in terms of bed matters. she was seemingly not so much active and always did the same thing over and over. I tried to make her do something new and exciting but her rigidity just wasn’t helping matters.
Memories of the two of us together clicking in my mind and making me so much drawn to her .
Now here I was upset she kicked me out. I didn’t care if she was at her husbands house when I needed her I had to find her and make her mine.
I paced around trying to talk myself into jumping over the wall fence again but the thought of her being pissed about me made me change my mind. I had to give her some time to cool it off.
But I still wanted her to stop her moving up and down. I was beginning to feel she was fond of seeing other men and I vowed to find out. I wasn’t going to accept having other men take her away from me again. I already had an issue of getting rid of her husband.
Driving back home, I planned of how I should follow her around and see what she was hiding from me. I quickly text her to tell her how much I was sorry for yelling at her and how I wished I was with her.
I placed my phone back in the front pocket of my shirt as I allowed the cool air from the window touch my face.
” hey guys!” I called out to my wife and two kids when I got home. They sat watching some cartoon and I walked passed them straight to my bedroom. Just to see my wife come in the moment I sat down the bed.
She came over and sat near me leaning her head on my shoulder.
” I have something to ask you my husband” she started in a low tone.
” what about?” I asked rather not interested in talking to her. I had to sleep over the disappointment of not seeing my Stella.
” who is Stella?” She asked me unexpectedly and for a second I thought of shouting out
” the woman I love!” But I withheld the thought and instead looked at her.
” which Stella?” I asked calmly.
” a woman just called me to say her name is Stella and she told me to learn to control and satisfy you so that you don’t run after her ” my wife went on explaining and all this while, my heart raced like I was jogging.
” how dare She!” I thought to myself.
” so someone you don’t even know calls you to tell you that nonsense and here you are telling me about it? Can’t you use your head for a moment?” I turned at her angrily.
” it could be anyone trying to get us to fight. Or do you think if i had some other woman I would be as stupid as to give them your line?” I asked seriously
” am sorry I didn’t mean to upset you. It’s just that she sounded serious and I thought maybe she was the person you had told me you went to see the other day” she responded
I looked at her and almost burst out laughing.
How naive, I had told her I went to see my friend and when she asked who, I told her a good friend from Luanshya. She had insisted on the sex of this friend and I honestly told her a woman of which she just nodded and went on her business.
” listen here, that person who called you just wanted to play games with you. Now please get me my food am tired I got to sleep” I told her.
I shook my head as I watched her go to fetch my food.
” Stella you are crazy, what the hell where you thinking calling my wife ?” I called her later on.
” Well, I want to just help her keep her man in one place. It seems she doesn’t know how to keep her husband’s pants down” she ranted out without hesitation.
” don’t you dare do that again Stella” I warned her and I heard her laughing.
” what’s funny?” I questioned
” so you think my marriage is a play ground, while you want to save yours huh?” She scoffed
” well I got news for you Mike. Stay away from me or I will come over to your place and tell your wife and kids how you jump over some wall fence to have sex with me” she let a laugh.
I was quiet for some minutes trying to get her on a good side. ” whatever you do Stella i still love you and none of that will change that ” i responded trying to sound sweet.
I heard her frown on the other end and I smiled.
” just make sure you prepare yourself for me cause am coming to see you tomorrow ” I added and I couldn’t finish my sentence before she cut the line.
I sat down and thought about it. Stella was acting weird. She usually was soft with me and I knew just a bit of some sweet words I got her attention. I couldnt help feel something was up with her, besides her husband issues. And I made a promise to myself that I would find out what it was.
I had not seen her for almost two weeks as she practically ignored my calls. I went to her place but it was either she wasn’t home yet or she was in the company of her friend.
I parked my car waiting to see her drive out, then I saw her. She surprisingly didn’t drive out like I expected instead, she walked out some two blocks away from her house dressed in a long stripped dress which shaped her so well.
She held her phone in her hands as she looked up the road like she was expecting someone.
As I watched I saw a posh looking vehicle stop where she was and a man came round to open the door for her.
She smiled, as she went in and I watched as the car passed were I was hiding. ” okey, so this is the reason she has been acting up on me” i whispered to myself as I got the car engine starting.
I wasn’t going to let another man get in my way. I looked ahead and saw the car head towards pick and pay them passed to the road going down Mtendere market.
” today you will see that am one crazy man and can really get mad when tempered with” I murmured as I drove in their direction.
