I ran fast to the dining and on reaching there the food was on the floor, Johnson always throws food away when he is angry. So I stayed far from him because I knew anything could happen at that moment.
“Are you mad…how many times have I told you not to make my food too spicy” Johnson yelled
“I am sorry I didn’t intend to” I pleaded
“You are lucky I have a meeting right now,” Johnson said giving me a bad look before going out.
I exhaled out.
I cleaned up the mess and went back to what I was doing. I finished my work and went to take my bath and headed out to the saloon, Johnson might have a bad temper but he always makes sure he drops money for my upkeep…The wife of almighty Mr. Johnson must look good.
I have my car, which makes many women envy me, not knowing I am paying the price of all the luxury.
I drove to the saloon, told them what I wanted and the hairdresser started her work. Just then some classic ladies worked in giggling…
“God i so envied them” i have always admired independent ladies, the freedom and confidence they carried can be seen from afar.
I tried starting a conversation with them but I wasn’t sure how, I can’t remember when last I had a friend or had an intellectual conversation with anyone. My back ground made me feel inferior and my husband made it worse, he made sure i do not make friends, I only have the gate man at home.
I was done with my hair and I left for home, I couldn’t get those ladies happy face and the confidence they had out of my mind. I drove in silence thinking of ways to bring back my confidence, ways I could be useful, ways I can achieve my dreams. I have given birth and I have suffered enough…
It was time for me to make my self proud. I drove home as I thought of the possibilities of being happy again and achieving my dreams, “all I need is to be clever” I had thought.
I drove into the compound and I saw Geoffery the driver home, Geoffery never comes home before Mr Johnson, what must have happened.
I came down from the car and asked him why he was home without Mr Johnson.
“He asked me to leave the car and come back home” Geoffery said
“Okay” I said, not like I cared.
Mr Johnson called me later on and told me he was traveling for 3 days, so I should make sure to lock the house at night.
Lol…this has always been my best moment in this marriage ” When ever he travels”.
