The past always has a way of creeping into the future; that’s why it’s advisable for us to be mindful of the way we live our lives. However, the good news is that a changed person is free from their past and can’t be subjected or defined by it. Despite the fact that Saint lived a double standard life in the past, he still deserved another chance to make things right and live a better life. We all know that stigmas are hard to correct or erase, so the only thing Saint could do is pray that Rose sees through Patricia to know that it’s a set-up intended to ruin his relationship with her. Fingers are crossed and at this point, all we can do is hope that Rose doesn’t take any drastic decision concerning her relationship with her repentant beau.


After the shocking revelation by the anonymous WhatsApp contact, Rose couldn’t think properly any longer. She was in denial and didn’t want to believe that the half na.ked man in the pictures that were sent to her was her own Saint. Everything felt like a horror movie and it gave her a panic attack.


The fact that Saint just informed Rose that he dozed off at a friend’s place and also didn’t pick up when she called earlier, gave her anxiety and actually made the whole set-up believable. It was going to take more than talking to get her to believe otherwise.


While hell broke loose at Rose’s end, Saint was clueless on what was happening and never suspected any shady act by Patricia while he was at her house. Though he noticed his belt wasn’t knotted the way he usually does it, he waived the thought cause he felt it could have loosened due to the tossing and turning while he slept. Never for once did it cross his mind that Patricia had a hand in the sudden dizziness and unexpected sleep that took place while he was at her house. Too bad he trusted blindly!



Shortly after Rose received those pictures, she wanted to call the number that sent it but held back so as not to complicate things the more. Rose felt the first person she needed to confront was Saint and not the anonymous message sender. She felt if there was anyone that owed her an explanation, then it was him.


One of the wise things Rose did was to take some time to digest the shock she was feeling at that moment and also calmed her nerves. She knew that if she called Saint immediately, they might end up not getting anywhere with their conversation because she would be yelling and throwing accusing fingers all through their conversation. The whole thing was a huge contradiction of everything he had promised her so it was a huge deal breaker.

“Why on earth would he do this? What sense does it make to go through all this length just to get me back and make things work between us, only to do a thing like this few months after we got back together. This can’t be true, why would he do this? Is it because we chose to abstain? Could it be that he couldn’t bear his urges any longer and then decided to cheat on me? But he never showed any sign of resistance towards our abstinence agreement, so where’s all this coming from? God please let there be a suitable explanation to this because I’m at the verge of losing my mind” Rose soberly wondered as she walked to and fro in her bedroom. It was such an emotionally stressful day for the young lady because she couldn’t close her eyes to sleep due to the numerous scary thoughts in her mind.


On the other hand, Patricia was anxiously waiting for a reply from Rose but non was forth coming. She checked the WhatsApp message countlessly, waiting for a reply but Rose was mute. Patricia could see that she had read the message and also seen the pictures she sent. She kept wondering why Rose was mute and wasn’t reacting the way she expected. “Ah ah, are you sure this is the lady Saint have been flaunting all over social media as his girlfriend? Why hasn’t she messaged me back till now or even call to yell at me? Hmm” she wondered. It was quite weird that Rose hadn’t showed any sigh yet of a lady that just received information wi


th proof that her partner was cheating on her. Patricia’s initial plan was to get into a verbal fight with Rose and reveal more shocking details if she had called back. The fact that she was still mute, made Patricia nervous. All she could do was keep her fingers crossed as she awaited a reply or reaction.



When Saint arrived home that evening, he called Rose to say ‘Goodnight’ to her but she wasn’t picking up. Without carrying any thing in mind, he felt she had already slept off so he innocently sent her a goodnight message.


The following day, Rose woke up a bit calm and was ready to confront Saint with evidence. While they spoke that morning, she informed him that they needed to talk after work hours; of which he agreed to meet up with her at her house.


As they spoke that morning, Rose’s tone wasn’t friendly at all but was rather blunt and straight to the point. Somehow, Saint figured that something was wrong and even went ahead to ask if she was alright but she told him that all was fine.


All through the early hours of that day, Saint was a bit worried and tensed as he kept wondering why Rose sounded very cold on the phone. Not for once did his mind ever think that the issue on ground involved cheating accusations with picture proof of him being half na.ked with another lady. Despite the fact that Saint felt a bit tensed all day, he kept his cool and hoped that it was nothing serious.

Immediately after work that day, Saint hurried down to Rose’s house. He got there before her and had to wait inside his car for her to pull up. After about an hours later, Rose returned home and could see Saint’s car outside her compound. She parked well, alighted from the car and went inside straight; without exchanging greetings with him.


Everything that happened that very moment confirmed Saint’s fear that something was seriously wrong. In order not to lose his mind too soon, he summoned up courage and followed Rose inside the house. When he entered inside, he found her crying bitterly in the living room. That sight only was enough to murder his heart as great fear gripped him because he knew that whatever problem that could make Rose cry, was a big one indeed. “Baby what’s going on? Why are you crying? To be honest you are getting me scared and worried” he curiously inquired as he walked closer to her.


At that point, there was just so much for Rose to say that she didn’t know where to start from. Unable to properly express the pain she was feeling, she brought out her phone and gave it to Saint. One look at the phone screen and his heart jumped out of his body.



Just imagine the feeling of seeing a nu.de picture of yourself with another lady but can’t recall or remember when that sort of incident took place. Saint was totally numb and almost collapsed due to the shock that overshadowed him. At that point, he didn’t even know where to start defending himself from. Words were heavy because the man on that photo was undeniable him. After being mute for a while, he finally managed to say something.


“This isn’t true, I swear I’m very confused because I can’t remember ever doing this with anyone” Saint confusingly said, “wait a minute, this is Patricia and this is also her house” he shockingly added. When he said that, Rose’s attention was drawn and she was kind enough to ask him to explain himself. “Saint tell me the whole truth now before I lose my mind that I have been trying to hold together since yesterday evening I received this message” she said.


Rose’s revelation as to when she received the pictures confirmed any doubts Saint was having that Patricia had set him up. “Baby let me explain. This particular lady was the person I told you that I had a business appointment with. Her name is Patricia and she’s one of the ladies I had a thing with in the past. When she told me she wanted us to see, I initially didn’t want to grant her offer till she said it was strictly business. I went over to her place yesterday afternoon to take a look at the business proposal she said she wanted to show him. The only thing I can remember


last was when she gave me a drink and when I woke up from sleep. I suspect now that the drink was drugged because I still can’t fathom why I dozed off unexpectedly like that in her house. We didn’t end up having the meeting anymore because I left immediately I woke up. The reason I wasn’t able to pick your calls when you called was because I was fast asleep. My God! So this lady had ulterior motives for inviting me over to her house and used ‘Business’ to lure me over. Baby I swear I didn’t touch her, babe you have to believe me. I have never cheated on you since we started this new journey, you have to believe me” he soberly said.


Saint’s explanation was quite convincing but Rose wasn’t ready to believe him too soon. “How do I know you aren’t lying? I’m trying so hard to trust you but it’s quite difficult to do so when things like this keeps happening” she furiously said. Without wasting any time, Saint told her to follow him so they could get to the root of the



whole matter once and for all. He figured that the best way to make Rose believe him was for him to confront Patricia in front of her. No time to waste!


“Babe you know what? please come with me! Don’t say anything and just follow me I beg you” Saint said. In order not to complicate things the more, Rose stood up from where she sat and followed him out of the house. They both entered his car and drove off; without him telling her where they were going to. Saint felt Rose might not want to come with him if he had revealed that they were headed down to Patricia’s house that evening. All he could do was pray for Patricia to be at home when they get there.


Throughout the ride, Rose kept sobbing and didn’t look like she was going to stop anytime soon. It killed Saint deeply to hear her cry but he knew the tears would dry immediately he was done with what he wanted to do that evening.


After about an hour later, they arrived at their destination; which was Patricia’s apartment. Saint told Rose to wait inside the car that he was coming. He rushed to Patricia’s apartment and knocked on the door. He could hear music playing inside and it confirmed that she was very much around.


After the forth knock, Patricia opened the door and was dead shocked to see Saint standing in front of her. He tried his best not to unleash his anger on her too soon, so he kept his cool. “What are u doing here? She shockingly asked, “Just come with me to the car, there’s something I want us to talk about” he calmly said.


Due to Saint gentleness, Patricia felt he wanted to talk to her about making her his girlfriend since she might have succeeded in ruining his relationship with Rose. She locked her door and happily followed Saint to where he parked his car. Unknown to her, Rose was seated inside the car and could see them waking towards the car. A serious confrontation was about to take place but apparently, Patricia had absolutely no clue.


Immediately they got to the car, Saint opened Rose’s seat door and brought out her phone from his pocket which contained the pictures and message Patricia sent. The whole atmosphere was tensed and that was when Rose came out from the car.


When Patricia saw Rose, her heart skipped a beat and she suddenly realise what was about to go down. Before she could process things further, Saint showed her the



pictures she sent and said; “You have just two minutes to explain this pictures and what happened yesterday before I remove my clothes and run mad for you. Just so you know, if you don’t say the truth to me you will definitely say it to the police officers when I get you arrested. Now speak!”.


Scared and shocked, Patricia stammered; I…I…can cann explain please!”.
