Domestic Violence episode 16



Ayomide was shocked to see Shana in the battered state that he found her. He ran up to where she was lying on the ground and picked her up.

Ayomide: “Look at your face? He did this to you right?”

Shana: “No, Ayomide. He didn’t. It was a domestic accident. I fell down”.

Ayomide: “Don’t lie to me, I know domestic accident when I see one, I am not a child. Why are you covering up for that animal in human skin? Is it when he kills you that your corpse will speak up? You need to speak up and walk from this abusive relationship, Shana”.

Shana: “I don’t know what you are talking about, just take me to the hospital. Whatever happens between my husband and I is none of your business”.

Ayomide was hurt by her harsh words but he didn’t take it to heart. He knew that she was talking out of frustration and he understood her perfectly.

He drove her in his car to the hospital and paid the bills. The doctor called him into his office.

Doctor: “What exactly did you say happen to your wife?”

Ayomide: “Oh, she is my brother’s wife and not mine. Anyway, she said she was involved in a domestic accident”.

Doctor: “What sort of domestic accident if I may ask?”

Ayomide: “I don’t know, doctor. I wasn’t there, she only called me to drive her to the hospital because her husband was not at home when it happened”.

Doctor: “What I see in her is not in any way related to domestic accident. I see a woman whose body and spirit is crushed by domestic violence. What is the relationship like between her and her husband?”

Ayomide: “I really don’t know. I have not been in the country for the past five years”.

Doctor: “We have had cases where women refuse to speak up in the face of serious battering by their husbands, such women end up dying and leaving their children at the mercy of their husband’s mistresses. I will advise that you sit your brother down and caution him, if the marriage wouldn’t work, they should all find their way. She was lucky this time around, if the punches had continued, she would have broken a rib in her left side cartridge. She may not be this lucky the next time”.

Ayomide left the doctor’s office flagger basted. He had sensed it during his first visit that all was not well with his brother and his wife but he never imagined that things had gone that bad. He felt bad that another man was treating a woman he had loved this bad, even more painful was the fact that this other man was his half brother. If it had been any other person, he would have personally instigated a law suit against him. He was mad at Shana for lying and shielding her husband even in the face of serious health damages. “The love she has for Femi must be dangerous. I will confront Femi and if he doesn’t change, I have no option than to report him to our parents. I will not sit by and watch him kill somebody’s daughter”, with his mind made up, he got into his car and drove to Femi’s office.

Femi was in the office when Nana came knocking.

Nana: “Hello, Mr handsome manager”, she drew and kissed him”.

Femi: “Hello pretty, this is an office. No kisses and touching”.

Nana: “Don’t tell me you don’t want a piece of the action, a quickie in the office won’t do us any harm you know”.

She unbuttoned her shirt revealing her medium size but fresh b***s. Femi felt the rod in between his legs harden and he knew that he had to give it to her there and then. He drew near and began to fondle her b****t. Nana who was used to the business of satisfying men in bed got on her knees, unzipped his trousers and gave him a head, that was her area of specialization. Femi was in cloud nine and he wished that the moment would never pass away. In his quest for pleasure, he had forgotten that he didn’t lock the door to the office. The door opened and Licia walked in, she had been trying to call him and when he refused to pick her call, she had decided to visit him under the guise of a customer who wanted to see the branch manager.

Licia: “What! Femi!”

Licia walked across the table and slapped Femi hard on the face.

Licia: “You shameless man, after all that I do to satisfy you in bed, you still have the guts to abandon me for your colleague?”

Femi: “Bring your voice down, Licia. This is a corporate office”.

Licia: “I will not bring my voice down, Femi. Do you know that this is a corporate office? If you do, you will not have another woman blowing you in the office, shameless useless idiot”. Turning to Nana who was buttoning her shirt, she said.
“And you, what are you doing here? Are you not the new staff I met at the customers service stand the other day? So, your job description also includes sleeping with your boss? You are not even ashamed of yourself, you are on your knees giving a married man a blow job in his office. Shame on you, even prostitutes that stand on the street have better dignity”.

Nana: “Eh-eh, just hold it there. See who is talking, what about you that are following him about everywhere? What dignity have you? Oh, it is in my case that you know he is married, don’t you know that he is married? So why won’t you also allow him be for his wife?”

Femi: “Will you ladies stop this rubbish? Nana, you may leave. I am sure you have customers waiting for you to attend to them”.

Nana: “Didn’t you know that I had customers waiting for me before you allowed me unzip your trousers?” she sized him up and down, walked over to where Licia was standing and hissed. “Good riddance to bad rubbish”, she hissed as she walked out.

Licia stretched out her hand to slap Nana’s retreating figure but Femi grabbed her arm.

Femi: “Stop this Licia, take a hold on yourself”.

Licia: “Leave me alone, that cheap slot thinks she can insult me and go scot free? Who does she think she is?”

Femi: “Allow her go for my sake. Do you want to put me in trouble here? Causing a scene here can cost me my job”.

Licia: “I don’t care what it costs you, what you did costs me my heart, that is more precious than your stupid bank job”.

Femi knew that he had to do something quick before Licia loses her temper and go on rampage. He held her close to his heart.

Licia: “Leave me alone, don’t even try to bribe me with any fake hug here. I am going to the banking hall to beat the hell out of that slot”.

Femi: “Shhh…calm down. I will make it up to you. Tell me what you want? A check of 1 million naira? Shopping treat? Make your choice”.

Licia: “I don’t want anything from you, just allow me deal with that stupid girl”.

Femi: “Are you sure that is what you want? There is recession in Nigeria o, do you know what a million naira can do to your business?”

Licia relaxed and thought for few minutes. “I want your heart, Femi. That is all I want”.

Femi: “I would have gladly given it to you but as you can see”, he showed her his ring. “I am happily married”.

Licia: “Oh cut the pretense, Femi. You know that I know you as well as the palm of my hands. Yes, you are married but happily married is a capital lie. You are happily married and yet you spend almost every night on my bed, you are happily married and yet someone is giving you a head in the office. Weh don sah”.

Femi walked over to his chair and sat down. “You see why I like you, you are very smart. You know how to put 2 and 2 together and arrive at a logical conclusion. But you see, whether happily married or not, the most important thing is that I am married and I cannot divorce my wife to be with you”.

Licia: “Then I am going inside the hall to embarrass your little mistress”.

Femi: “Common, babe. We can arrive at a compromise. Do you really want me to lose my job? How will that profit you? I can’t divorce my wife even though I am not happy in the marriage. The problem any news of divorce will cause our families is not something that I can endure”.

Licia: “Who is talking about you divorcing your wife? Like seriously you think I want to marry you? So that you will start subjecting me to the kind of psychological trauma that your wife goes through daily?”

Femi: “Really? I can never seem to understand you, Licia. One minute you want my heart, the next minute you don’t want to be with me. I am confused, what exactly is it that you want from me?”

Licia: “I want to move in and live with you, that way I can have access to your body anytime I want”.

Femi: “How can a grown up lady move in with a married man? What do I tell my wife?”

Licia: “Anything you can think of. You can tell her that I am a house help that you employed to help her out with house chores, I don’t mind, so long as I am under the same roof with you”.

Femi: “But Licia…”

Licia: “No buts, Femi. That is my final answer. Think about it and get back to me with a positive answer else, I will expose your adulterous deeds to the world and I will expose what you do in your office with your female bankers to everyone, I will ruin your reputation and I will go to any length to make sure you lose your job. I have proofs of most of the dirty things that we did in bed, don’t dare me”.
