Cassandra went home immediately Lawrence left. When she got home she met her husband in the sitting room watching ball, she greeted him
Cassandra: honey I am back, good evening.
Samuel: Welcome dear, How is your besty?
Cassandra: she is getting better . I am so tired and hungry now
Samuel: alright, go inside take your bath, your food is on the dinning.
Cassandra: OK sweety **
As she was going inside their room, she saw her sister coming out of the guest room**
“who do we have here? when did you come?
Amaya: ahaaa sissy you are back, welcome **they engaged in a tight hug** i really missed you
Cassandra: I missed you more . How are you doing dear? have been expecting you since I heard that your school were on strike. Amaya: Yes sister, that is why I am here.
Cassandra: alright hope you have eaten, you really have slim down.
Amaya: yes, its because of too much stress.
Cassandra: OK, we will talk more later, right now I am starving .
Amaya : alright!”
**She started going to the parlour**
Cassandra went inside and took her bath after which she went and eat the delicacy made specially for her, by her husband.
She has always been grateful to God for giving her such a caring man as a husband, since they got married 7 years ago, not for once have they had serious quarrel , they have been living on fine even after he lost his job few months ago nothing changed.
The only thing bothering them was that they are yet to be blessed with children and
they are patiently waiting on God’s time since medically they are perfectly fine.
When Cassandra was through with dinner, she went back inside their room and lay
on the bed. Few minutes later Samuel joined her, laying beside her on the bed, he
patted her at the back.
Samuel: Baby, are you sleeping already?”
Cassandra: No dear, I was waiting for you *
She put her head on his chest caressing his checks**
Samuel: I really missed this dear, its been a while we spent time together like this.
Cassandra: Love, its because of the nature of my job, it doesn’t give me enough time to spend with you and I am so sorry about that.
Samuel: Its OK dear, at least you are here now and that’s what matters most.
He started kissing her, when the kiss was becoming more hot they were rudely interrupted by Cassandra’s ringing phone***
“oh dear couldn’t you just for once switch off that phone, its 10:30pm already”
Samuel said irritated.
Cassandra: No love, I can’t, have you forgotten I am a doctor?”
Samuel: How can I ever forget the main reason why we don’t spend time together”
Cassandra: I am sorry,
**she went ahead and pick it**
“yes what is it? ”
**speaking with the person on the other line** “Oh my God! I will be right there”
(she cut it and turn to her husband who was just starring at her with an expressionless face)”. Cassandra:honey please I need to go to the hospital now, there is an emergency and my presence is urgently needed, I promise to make it up to you when I return.
**she said rushing out of the bed**
Samuel: of course that had been your national anthem for the past 3 years, I promise! I promise!! I promise!!!, when will you fulfil it. Alright you can go, just don’t forget you have a husband too.
Cassandra: I won’t, thank you. and please do take care of yourself for me **she kissed him, put on her cloth and about to leave.
Samuel: wait, I can’t let you go alone, its already late, let me drive you there myself.
Cassandra: thank you so much honey, you really are the best.
I love you…
 Lawrence left the hospital and went home.
On getting home, he met the kids still watching cartoon at the sitting room, he left them there and went inside the kitchen to know if he can finish cooking the food his wife was preparing before she fainted.
He started with pounding the yam, after which he began cooking the Ogbolo soup, he put so much effort in making the food that he was sweating all over his body, he tasted the food to make sure its OK.
Lawrence: oh! what a bitter soup! I think I should add a little sugar so that those naughty children of mine and my wife won’t laugh at me *
He put 5 cubes of sugar and tasted it again** “mmmmmm what a sweet soup, today they will know that I am a man with many talents, no one can beat me when it comes to cooking” He made Eba for the kids because they don’t like eating pounded yam, dish out their food and serve it on the dinning, he packaged his wife own on a food flask before going to call the kids Lawrence: children! food is ready
Wally: chai! this one daddy cooked today, hope we are safe?”
Deborah: you never can tell, let’s eat first
