Ndubuisi went inside and met Cherry sobbing deeply.
He rushed to her side to inquire what was happening with her.
But she continued shedding tears, without responding to him.
“You know I can’t read your mind to find out what is it that is making you cry”
“Tell me, what was that all about?” Cherry asked
“What was what?”
“I saw everything. You bathed her, but for what purpose?”
And Ndubuisi chuckled and said, “I only offered to bath her, since she doesn’t have anyone here that could help her do it. She is in a whole lot of pains”
“That girl was the reason you left me before, when our relationship was already gaining ground, and now, she is back again to destroy what we have already set in place”
“Trust me, this tear is not really necessary. What you saw was nothing. I hit that poor girl with my car and helping her recover is my full responsibility” he said and then checked the time and discovered that, it was already 4:57 a.m and he continued “See, I only have few minutes to catch some sleep, can you just stop with the sobbing, please? Just come to the bed” Ndubuisi said, moving upward the bed, to lie down, drawing Cherry with him.
While he laid comfortably, having Cherry’s head on his chest, he started thinking about Ogechi.
“I love Cherry, I really do, but what I’m feeling for Ogechi is way different. I have this inner happiness whenever she is close to me. This is surely going to be difficult for me to decide on who my heart truly wants.” he thought hard
Ogechi was in the second room, feeling bad that, the man she loved was sleeping in the big room with another woman, lying comfortably, next to him. She tried forcing herself to sleep, but she couldn’t.
She decided to enter the living room.
She switched on the television and started watching.
When it was about 6 in the morning, she decided to make some breakfast for Ndubuisi. But as she was about to enter the kitchen, she got restrained with the thought that brushed her mind.
“That’s not your kitchen anymore. Remember you are a guest and doesn’t have the right to use that kitchen” she got weak and then sat back.
But this thought was encountered by another that popped in.
“Wait a minute, he still hasn’t married her yet, which means the kitchen is not yet fully hers, you are free to use it”
And Ogechi quickly agreed with the second thought and headed to the kitchen.
She found pasta.
“I just hope the ingredients to make them is available” She checked the cupboards and was able to find them. And she set for the cooking.
The aroma permeated the entire house, forcing Ndubuisi to wake up. He wondered where the sweet aroma was coming from. He checked Cherry and discovered she was still deep in sleep. He then left the room.
He headed to the kitchen and met Ogechi cooking.
“What? What are you doing? You are supposed to be resting?”
And Ogechi gave him a very beautiful smile and said, “One thing I missed so much is how you enjoy good foods and how your lips dance together when you are grinding them. Please, allow me cook this and watch you enjoy them” she requested, softly
Ndubuisi couldn’t stop staring at her eyes that were filled with kindness. He felt comfort, enjoying her presence.
“Then what about your wounds?”
“They are not even deep, you are worrying yourself so much. I am fine, Ok? Just go and get ready for work, I will soon be done” Ogechi kindly requested
And Ndubuisi gently left the kitchen, thinking over what Ogechi said.
“She is right, her wounds are not so deep. My concern is not even about her wounds, it has always been my love for her. I love and care for her so much. God, if you are truly there, I think it’s time I needed your help.” He breathed deeply
