Walking Away From Pain
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 s*x 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," f**k 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 eachother 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 beleive that. Perhaps, Joan had just decided to suddenly turn herself into a villian 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. But 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, the location was an hotel and the exact room she was to come to was stated in that message.
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 i***t, I wonder what my son see in her in the first place? Just consuming my son's money and can't even produce 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 beleive 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, infact, 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 it's 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 a child because you are barren but that's not my fate."
Amy cried harder, she couldn't believe that her once 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 failt 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 experience 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."
"Callan said you must not pick even a single thing from here, everything you have here was bought by his 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.
