Minutes turned into hours and that was how I waited till 12midnight for my husband to return home to me. I called and called but he kept on cutting the calls until finally I slept off.
It was the sound of someone hitting on the door that woke me up. I grabbed my phone and I checked the time it was some minutes pass 2am. I was scared to the brim as I listened again for the knocking.
Who could be knocking at this time of the night when my husband was not home. I was shivering, not until I heard him.
Isaiah: Daniella open this door. Open it.
It was my husband, and so I jumped quickly to the door and opened it. The relief I felt when I saw him was overwhelming. I tried to hug him but he just walked passed me without saying a word. I quickly left the door and ran to him.
Me: Honey welcome. How was your movement? Why did you come home so late? Why weren’t you picking my calls? Did you get the papers?
I found myself vomiting all of the questions for him at the same time, I didnt realize what I was doing until he screamed at the top of his voice.
Isaiah: Oh oh oh! What kind of question is all of this na? Didnt i tell you where I was going?
Me: you told me but……
Isaiah: but what? But you slept off abi?
I was surprised at the way he was sounding, looking and what he was saying.
Me: Baby are you okay?/(I asked trying to touch him)
Isaiah: Dont touch me, and dont you ask me stupid question. You slept off. Your husband left the house and didnt come back on time and what you could do is sleep off.
Me: Honey no, I was sitting waiting for you and I didnt know the time I slept off.
Isaiah; of course na, how would you know? Why won’t you sleep? Go ahead and sleep.
Me: okay dear, am sorry dont be angry with me please. (I was trying to hold him and apologise again)
Isaiah: I said dont you ever touch me. You not only slept off you even locked me out. So that armed robbers will wait me here and kill me right?
Me: no what? How can u say that
u say that?
Isaiah: how can I not say that. u locked me outside but for the grace of God…….., abeg Daniella. I want to go and sleep o. I dont want disturb.
He left me and marched into the bed room. Leaving me staring at him. I was confused! What could be wrong with him?
