THE RICH MAN’S WIFE
All through that same day, Susan was in delimma as she was looking for means to get the remaining balance, her father was not helping matters as he called Susan every now or then. All Susan’s effort to get the balance was futile, all her friends and neighbors, she begged for the money, turned her down and some mocked her. Susan felt bad all through that evening.
The next day, Susan was contemplating on paying her husband a visit at his business location, When her phone rang, she received the call immediately she saw that the caller was her father, She received the call anxiously but she got a disheartening news.
“Susan, Your Mother is dead, before I could convince the doctor to start the treatment, it was too late, the doctor at first refused to treat your mother because the money was not complete, before I could convince the doctor to start the treatment, that I will balance up, it was too late, my daughter if you had sent in the complete payment, your mother would still be alive, I don’t know why you refused to send the balance, this is an act of negligence from your side and it’s not like you don’t have the money, you do, you are the wife of a wealthy man, I don’t know why you couldn’t send the whole 80 thousand at once” Susan’s Father said in a low tone
Susan was already in tears and was mute. She didn’t see any need to explain herself to her father, what is done is done, her mother is dead. After the call, she rolled
herself on the floor crying, she couldn’t believe that her sweet mother was died. “I can’t believe my mother died because I couldn’t provide common 20 thousand naira, oh my God, why my mom? She suffered so much for me and she died because I couldn’t get 20 thousand naira, this is so unfair, heaven knows that i really tried my best yesterday to get the balance but no way, Mom I’m sorry” Susan said in tears.
Few months after, Susan’s mother was buried and Femi threw a befitting burial ceremony but Susan’s Father was still angry with her and her husband. Because he knew his wife would still be alive if her daughter had sent the balance on time. He didn’t value the big burial ceremony Femi, her daughter’s husband threw for his late wife.
After the Funeral, Susan returned to her base with her husband and things returned to the way it was. Susan was still wretched and miserable as ever. She was forced to involve Femi’s family in the matter. She opened up to them and told them how her own mother died because she couldn’t send money to her father on time.
“For over two years now, my husband had refused to give me a dime, not that he doesn’t have, we all know his worth financially, but you won’t believe that I don’t have even one thousand naira in my account, I’m tired of the insults I get from my friends each time I beg them for money, the worst My husband had forbade me from taking up a Job, how will I survive, please ask him what he wants me to do” Susan told Femi’s family members
And Femi flared up, Immediately he responded ” please my people, ask her if she is hungry or na.ked, this woman is ungrateful, she claims that I don’t do anything for her but I’m the one who threw a befitting burial ceremony for her mother, you all were present at the funeral and you saw things for yourself, I spent close to 2 million for that burial, she said her mother died because of common 20 thousand naira, ask her if she told me that her mother was sick, I never knew that her mother was sick”
Femi’s father asked Susan if his son knew that her mother was hospitalized and still refused to give her money. “No, he wasn’t aware because he was not taking my calls…” Susan said but Femi interrupted her immediately.
“Oh daddy you can hear her, this woman is a very dangerous woman, all women are very dangerous, including my mother that’s why she abadoned my father and flew
to Europe with her lover with half of my father’s wealth, all susan wants is my money, She is a gold digger, she doesn’t care about me or my happiness” Femi threw in and Susan was speechless, she couldn’t believe Femi coul
d say all that to her after all they have been together as a couple
Susan was in tears and she couldn’t even defend herself, Femi’s family ended up getting confused with the matter but they tried they best to solve the issue but mostly, they took Femi’s side, they left afterwards and promised to visit again for settlement. They urged them to live in peace with each other.
Things grew worst between Femi and Susan as their marriage grew more cold, Femi barely looked at Susan’s face and he did as he pleased.
