My heart kept thumbing when I realized there was a third person in the room with them who was holding a towel. I called out for Frank and he turned to look at me with a blank look. After he saw me I walked off and i could hear him calling out for me but I didn’t reply as I ran off to pick a taxi. I kept wondering what to make of the situation. Even though there was a third person I just couldn’t believe my eyes and kept wondering what to make of it. The events were unfolding too fast and the more I thought about it the more confused I felt. My phone kept ringing and I didn’t have the urge to pick it up. When I got to my apartment Eugene was standing there as soon as he asked what was wrong I burst into tears and he held on to me. I cried on his shoulders and didn’t realize when he picked keys from my bag and ushered me into the hall. I sat in the sofa and I was out of breath because I didn’t have the strength to sob anymore. I always knew I loved Frank but it was when he hurt me that I realized how much love I had for him.
I fell asleep on the sofa and woke up around 3 am to realize Eugene had left a note on the table
” am going home and I will be back very early at dawn to see you, take care”. I got up from the sofa to do some work I brought home for the research I was doing at my company. I worked till 5 m and started getting ready for work; I took some breakfast dressed in bright colors to cheer me up. I decided to put up a positive mood for work and also forget the events of the previous day. I was deciding whether or not to drive when I heard a knock on my door; it was Eugene. He offered to be my chauffeur for the day so I agreed and he drove me to work, as I alighted from his car he insisted he takes me out for lunch and I agreed.
At noon he was there to pick me up and we had a meal, talked about our lives but he never asked what happened the previous day. After work he picked me and drove me home, I invited him in and we had supper together. He left around 8pm. After he left and I was alone then I realized Frank had not called me since morning which was strange but I decided to keep it that way. It was Thursday night so I called my mom to tell her i would be coming over for the weekend at Kumasi. After work on Friday Eugene drove me to the bus station and I picked a bus to Kumasi.
I got home around 9 pm bad everyone was there to welcome me, they were so excited to see me. I felt the love I needed and it felt great to be with my family. At dawn I heard a knock on my door and my mother entered. She looked at me carefully and said she knew something was wrong and she wanted to hear it. I wanted to hide it from my mum but had been dying inside in what to do say I opened up to her. I told her every detail on what happened with Frank; she listened quietly and said she would talk to me again before my departure. I felt at peace after sharing my predicament with my mother because she was able to understand me in ways no one could.
She advised me on Sunday dawn to go see Frank and sort things out if I really loved him and that I shouldn’t give up on him. Mother asked me to patiently ask him to explain, listed carefully and then make up with him. I agreed and dad dropped me off at the bus station all he said was that ” bye dear remember whatever you cherish is worth fighting for, I love you and safe journey.”
I picked the bus put my headphones on as I listened to music and planning on how to get back with Frank. I got to my apartment at 4pm I changed my clothes and then called Frank that I was coming over to see him; he agreed and I drove to his house. I knocked on the gate and the house help opened the gate, without waiting for her to say anything I walked in and she didn’t try to stop me either. I went to the hall to meet Frank sitting there and I hugged him with a kiss be can it’s been long and I just couldn’t help myself when I looked at him.We sat there talking when I realized the house help was standing and staring at us. I looked up at her with a stare of dominance and within seconds she had left, then I turned to Frank to sort things out with him so I asked we went to his room . When we entered guess who was there…….
