Ok people, come closer, sit down and relax cos i have gist for you guys. Get comfortable, but not too comfortable cos i need you to be able to skidaddle when this gist is over.
So, back in the day a friend of mine told me that her boss was asking her out. I advised her to turn him down but she didn't listen and succumbed to him because he had the looks and the money. I was kinda disappointed in her and our friendship eventually fizzled out as these things tend to happen. She had refused to get into any relationship while in school and eventually gave up her virginity when she was in her mid-20's. Of course she got her heart broken and decided to stay away from men even when we advised her to give love another chance. I don't think we had dating her boss in mind when we advised her to date other guys.
Anyhoodle, I found out 2 years later that she was still having an affair with her boss and didn't mind being his life-long mistress. He had even introduced her to some members of his family but she hid it from her own family because she knew they wouldn't approve of it.
Some years into the relationship, the man decided he wanted a child from her because his wife could not have anymore kids after their first one. This chic agreed on the condition he divorces his wife. I was livid, as were her parents who were furious when she told them. She got pregnant and then the man sent his people to appeal to her family who reluctantly agreed to the marriage. Meanwhile, his first wife refused to grant him a divorce and was determined to fight for her marriage, but the man moved out of his matrimonial home into another apartment with his mistress who was happy to be the new Mrs XXX!
She had her baby few months ago and that's when her troubles started! She had no clue that her sister-in-law didn't like her: When her sister-in-law came to visit one day, she saw her give money to somebody to buy some stuff from Dubai. Her sister-in-law then told her brother that she was extravagant. The guy now decided to stop giving her money and started asking her to account for any money he gave her. She started having trouble feeding and of course this led to quarrels, hateful words were exchanged and all that craziness in the marriage. She could not believe this was the same man she had been having an affair with for 8years! I guess the honeymoon was over. She eventually moved out of his house back to her parents home when her baby was barely 6 months old because of how badly he was treating her. Of course, there's a lot of details that were left out of this story, but trust me when i say it was bad.
So what's the point of this story? I would like this to serve as a warning to other women who think they can eat their cake and have it! As the saying goes, the cane used to beat the first wife is always hung on the door to be used on the new wife! You are not special. Women who think that they can build their happiness on the foundation of another woman's unhappiness should know that NEMESIS would always come knocking!
Wait! There's more. Stay tuned for Nemesis Part 2. (A different but similar story). Na naija movie be this o.
