Amy was busy with her laptop when her phone suddenly chirped, she almost ignored cause of how engrossed she was but decided to take a look at the screen of the phone at a time when the call was almost coming to an end.
Seeing that the caller ID was her husband's secretary Joan, she picked up the phone quickly as she wondered why she must have called him. She only saved Joan's number cause she's her husband's secretary and on days when she may not be able to reach her husband Callan, at work, she would simply call Joan to pass the phone to him.
But this time was the first time that Joan would be placing a call across to her. She answered the call as she placed the phone gently on her ear, but the filthy sounds she heard left her flabbergasted and troubled.
She had to look at the screen of the phone again to be sure that it was Joan that pulled a call across, she placed the phone on her ear again and heard the same filthy sounds, they were hard and loud moans that depicts clearly that someone was having a heavy round of sex with her.
With the few times that Amy had spoken to Joan, she recognized her voice and she knew that the moans was definitely that of Joan. Did she mistakenly dialed her number during her intimate session with her boyfriend? Amy thought it could be a mistake so she wanted to hung the call up but what Amy heard next made her head almost fall off her neck.
She had to push the laptop aside just to be sure she heard the right thing, she listened clearly again and Joan repeated," fuck me, baby....Callan, go deeper, I'm loving it...oh my gosh!"
Amy's heart became troubled, very disturbed that she had to stand. That's not possible! She concluded and hung the call up. She trusted Callan with her life and loved him so dearly. Although she couldn't conceive for him yet, but they both showed each other love and affection.
It can't be possible that Callan will be cheating on her. That's not just possible. She shook her head trying not to believe that. Perhaps, Joan had just decided to suddenly turn herself into a villain in their marriage but sadly, that would never work.
Amy sat back and wanted to ignore what just happened but a gentle voice speaking inside of her wouldn't let her mind be at rest. In a world where anything is possible, what if Callan was actually cheating on her?
While she was in deep thought, her phone chirped briefly and seeing that it was a text message, she picked up her phone. Her heart raced when she realized that the sender of this message was none other than Joan.
She read the message telling her to come to a location, it was an hotel and the exact room she was to come to was stated in that message too.
What was going on? Amy's mind became even more troubled. She closed her laptop and walked quickly towards her wardrobe. She was in her home wear and since she intends going out now, she had to change into an outfit.
Once she was done, she walked outside of her room and wanted to tell her mother in law who was living in the same house with them that she had something urgent to attend to.
She walked to her room and knocked but couldn't find her there, where else could she be other than the kitchen? She took a quick step towards the kitchen and when she was almost at the door, she heard a loud laughter erupt from there. It was from her mother in law.
After a session of laughing, her mother in law said, unaware that Amy was outside, "that barren woman is such an idiot, I wonder what my son see in her in the first place? Just consuming my son's money and can't even give a child! Never have I seen such a shameless woman."
She laughed again after saying that, it was obvious she was on a phone call with someone.
Amy didn't believe that her mother in law could say this, tears almost fall off her eyes but she held it, she stormed inside the kitchen abruptly and her mother in law Wilma, turned to her at once with a thumping heart.
Just thirty minutes ago, Amy had told Wilma that she would be busy inside until it was night, Wilma didn't expect for her to be here at this period. This was why she could speak freely and carelessly on phone.
Wilma wondered if Amy heard what she said, after a brief moment of intense silence between them, Wilma faked a cough and said, "Amy, erm...I thought you...Are you going out?"
"Mum, are you scared?" Amy asked with a smirk, as though she was not in pain.
"Scared...why?...why? Why would I?" She stammered.
"I'll be leaving, I have something important to do, ma," Amy said and turned, she intentionally left the woman in confusion. She wouldn't know if Amy heard what she was saying on phone or if she didn't.
Amy arrived at the hotel in a jiffy and walked towards the exact door that had been stated in the message that Joan sent.
Amy wanted to knock at first but that wouldn't be a smart move. She twisted the knob and the door opened, her eyes almost fell off when she saw Callan and Joan naked. In fact, as at the time she entered, Joan was giving Callan a blow Job.
Amy's handbag dropped and her legs became jelly at once, she prayed at once that this will be a dream. Hot tears find its way down her cheek and she felt an excruciating pain torturing her heart.
"Call...an!" She managed to call in-between her pain and agony.
However, Callan laughed to her surprise, Joan joined in the laughter too, Joan was now leaning on Callan and neither of them had any sense of remorse.
"Why are you crying, barren chick?" Callan asked. "Did you really think I will put up with you forever? Oh! So you don't want me to have a child? It's your fate not to have one because you are barren but that's not my fate."
Amy cried harder, she couldn't believe that her beloved husband could ever say such. Has he been cheating on her all along? Did it start recently? But he used to love her, what changed?
"She's really good at crying," Joan said to Callan and scoffed.
Amy felt like rushing towards her and hitting her head with a metal but was it Joan's fault that her husband cheated? The fault is entirely on Callan. He betrayed her love and trust for him.
She smirked all of a sudden and paused her tears," you betrayed me, Callan. It's over between us."
She picked up her handbag and walked out of the room, but she had barely walked a few steps in the hallway when she slumped to the wall and cried so hard. The pain she was feeling at this moment was the worst pain that she had ever experienced in her entire life.
It was as if the only way to get over this was to kill herself, she soon got inside her car, drove angrily to the court, filed for a divorce paper and drove back home.
She met her mother in law taking a warm tea at the dinning. She placed the divorce paper that only her had signed but was yet to be signed by Callan before Wilma and said," Ma, I heard what you said on phone before I left."
Wilma almost choked when she heard that. Amy placed the divorce paper before her and said," I also caught Callan cheating on me with his secretary. It's obvious I'm not wanted in this family anymore. Here is the divorce paper, I have signed it. Whenever he comes back home, tell him to sign it and tell him I've left."
Wilma was so happy on the inside that Amy was finally going to leave Callan but her face was sour as if she was sad.
"Don't act sad, mum. We both know you don't want me with your son," Amy said and turned in an attempt to leave but Wilma stood and spoke.
"Where are you going to?" Wilma asked, there was no point hiding her true colors anymore.
Amy turned back to her and answered," to pick up my belongings of course."
"You must not pick even a single thing from here. Everything you have here was bought by my son's money, so just leave," Wilma said heartlessly.
Amy felt an even greater pain when she heard that but she managed to plant a smirk on her lips, "sure!"
The most precious thing to her was the bracelet her mother gave her years ago. Since she had the bracelet in her hand, she looked towards the door that leads outside and walked away slowly and painfully.
Amy sat in one of the most luxurious club until it was night when the club always gets busy, she had two bottle of drinks before her and she was seriously drowning herself in her sorrow. For the past three years of the marriage, she had been entirely faithful to that bastard, she wouldn't even give any other man a chance to flirt with her, speakless of cheating on him. She trusted him so badly yet he broke her heart like it was nothing. The more she drunk, the more she hoped that she forgot her sorrow but the drink seemed not to be helping as the naked image of Joan and Callan kept playing in her head. She stood angrily all of a sudden and looked around at the people dancing in the club. She thought of picking one random gigolo that she could have a night stand with. After all, she was now divorced and single again. She saw a tall man entering a room and she ran quickly towards there immediately. Before the door could close, she had walked in. She leaned on the man at once and
Amy eventually returned to NorthHill and she lodged in a two bedroom apartment. That was what she could afford at the moment. In fact, getting that apartment cost almost all the money she had been saving in her six years' work at the small city she had newly come from. Since she had her degree, it shouldn't take her much effort to get a work here in NorthHill. Even if she met Callan by chance now, six years were enough time for her not to be affected by what had happened in the past between them. There could be an high chance that he had already got married to his secretary. Amy ignored the thought about Callan and began to search for job opportunities online. She applied to as many company as she could. She didn't want her children to have to starve for any reason, feeding six children at a time will sure cost a lot plus she assured them a better education here so she has to get them into a school as fast as she could. When it was evening of the following day, she got an offer
Amy curled her two legs up on her bed and cried, she was sad and embarrassed after what happened today. Firstly she lost her job and secondly, she was thrown out of the man's presence. Amy disliked the man, and she knew he was an arrogant man. How dare she to challenge the most powerful man in NorthHill? Was she drunk? Where could she get a job now? All the companies she sent offer to were not get back to her. The door opened all of a sudden and Angel appeared, "mum!" She ran towards Amy before she could even finish cleaning her tears. She doesn't like to let the children see her crying. She believed that it will make them troubled, she eventually cleaned up all her tears and smiled. Angel asked with a troubled look," mum, what's wrong?" "Nothing at all, I'm just happy to have you all around me," Amy lied. "But we are never absent from you," Angel said. Before Amy could say another word, Queen and Debby walked in and climbed on the bed. Seeing their faces made Amy really h
While Amy was heading home, she realized that she had not got her kids any surprise gifts. They all understood her financial state and had never disturbed her for gifts. But today, she decided to surprise them. For Abe, she didn't want to think about him. He's not the CEO, then there is nothing that he could do to her. She was not scared of him at all, instead, she detest him for the kind of man he already projected himself to be. How can he met someone for the first time and he immediately showing her clear sign of lust and shows how irresponsible he was? Amy stopped by at the mall and as soon she walked in, she saw a slap land an an old man's cheek. "What!" She exclaimed. She walked towards the crowds of people gathered around there and smuggled herself through the crowd until she got to where the old man was. The burly man who slapped the old man was dressed in suit and there were other men in suit around there. Amy challenged him," how dare you slap this old man? Did you
Both of them were surprised, they never expected to meet again expecially not in a situation like this. Amy's heart began to thump and she wished the land could swallow her up at this moment. This man had warned her not to show up before him again and that the next time she did, he would destroy her. Why was fate trying to punish her by bringing her to the attention of this man? "You dared to appear before me again, you cunny woman," the most powerful man in NorthHill, Broderick Alessandro, said with a dangerous look. Amy's mouth shiver on its own and she shook her head, "I... I never knew that you were the CEO, sir. I..." She swallowed hardly, "I...never knew." Broderick didn't believe in her at all. There was no one who didn't know that the CEO of Alessandro's corporation was him. This woman even had the gut to lie to his face. He stood from his seat and once Amy saw him stand to his feet, her heart thumped in fear and she stood still, thinking should she run away? Oh gosh
"Please! I wasn't appearing before you on purpose and I apologize sincerely for that night, please forgive me," she pleaded.There was a long moment of silence, anyone close to Amy at this time would literally hear her heartbeat. It was thumping so heavily that it felt like her heart was ripping apart. She didn't want this fierce looking man to pounce on her.If he pounced in her, what could she do? She started it six years ago by pouncing on him, she hoped earnestly that he would change his mind. She just wanted to leave this office and run as fast as her leg could take her from this company.He walked towards her then suddenly turned to his seat and sat, "leave."Leave? Amy thought that she probably didn't hear the right word. Did he say 'leave?' He was telling her to leave?She began to walk out slowly hoping that she was acting out on the right word, she twisted the knob and the door gave way.Oh her g
Amy wondered who could be knocking, she was not expecting any visitor and had not made any friend in this neighborhood. She stood nevertheless and walked towards the door, when she opened it, she saw a tall woman standing by the door."Amy!" The woman screamed.Amy furrowed her brow when she eventually recognized whom the woman was," Leola!"The two women hugged themselves dearly and Amy quickly let her in, Leola was Amy's roommate in the university. Through out her four years in the university, they both lived in the same room but they lost contact somehow after graduating from the university."How did you get to know where I stay?" Amy asked, still mesmerizing in the happiness that she met her old friend again."I didn't, I came here to apologize for what my son did, he didn't allow his friends play ball with him and I think that's selfish," she said," wait, are the three boys yours?""Yes, they are," Am
"Please, spare me this time," Amy pleaded even further. Eventhough she knew that pleading at this moment was too risky but if she agreed to do this, he would confirm his wrong perception of her. She was never that type of woman, a slut, a prostitute, that wasn't her.His phone rang at that moment, his attention then drifted from Amy who was kneeling before him and fell on the phone that was ringing. He took one more look at Amy and then walked over to his phone.He picked it and seeing whom the caller ID was, he sat and answered it, the caller was the only one who can have the gut to call him at this hour."Hello son, " the voice of an elderly woman came through.He didn't want to have conversation with his mother before a stranger, "out!" He declared and Amy stood quickly. The call saved her, she quickly walked out.Oh gosh! A narrow escape again! She had become so emotionally destabilized that she couldn't stay anoth
