M. A . R.Y ( Maria. Audrey. Rachael . Yvonne) - Episode 1

This story might be tempting to copy but please do not copy it for any reason just read it. GOD BLESS YOU…
I want to tell you the story of four women who brought a grave problem into their lives as a result of their carelessness which they thought was bravery but it turned out to be much more than they could handle and it brought the most terrible problem man would never think of into their lives…
Maria is a happily married woman with a cool husband MAX, a well-to-do business man, they got an issue with their marriage which was childbearing, and they live in a nice duplex.
Audrey is a fair beautiful lady, a spinster who has a boyfriend who is 20 years old called Chinedu while she is 30, a working class lady, quite rich.
Rachael a beautiful fat girl but feels she’s ugly & too fat always complaining, because of her low self esteem she marries a man who is after her money; a womanizer.
Yvonne a beautiful lady, with an obfuscating husband, she lives as a working class lady, can stand her ground but emotionally weak.
These ladies are gorgeous, that type of beauty that will put you in a confused state of which to love most.
One problem with MARY is that they just can’t get wise.
The fact that Maria has a responsible man doesn’t mean she chose wisely but just lucky to have him……….. This is their story
Maria’s face was not looking bright as Max drove home; he constantly glanced at her while driving
“Sweety, what’s wrong?” Max asked
“Nothing” she said looking through the window
“Look we’ve passed the stage of you saying nothing, am your husband I deserve to know what the problem is” he replied
“Ok why am I not pregnant?” she said looking at him
“What kind of question is that” he asked
“Just answer the god-damn question” she said loudly
“Am I to answer that?” he said
“O yes, answer” she said
“Well, the doctor said you’re fine, you’ll have your pregnancy soon” he said
“The doctor! The doctor!! The doctor!!! Always the doctor” she said
“What’s it? He said you’re fine, you can get pregnant” he said
“Yes am fine what about you?” she said. The words rang in Max’s ears as he immediately parked the car.
“What did you say?” Max said looking at her
“Yes are you capable of getting me pregnant?” she said
“What? Did you just say that to me?” he asked
“Max for God’s sake it’s 5 years now and we have no child” she said
“I see so this is what you’ve had in mind for a longtime now right” he said
“Honey am sorry about what I said” she said touching him, he ignored her as he started the car and continued driving, they were both silent until they got home.
The security guy opened the gate for them as he drove in & parked the car amongst the rest cars in an open garage
“Welcome sir” the gate man said to max as he steps out of the car
“Thank you Obi” he replied
“Welcome Ma” he said to Maria
“Thank you” she replied
They both walked into the house and went upstairs into the bedroom. Maria sat on the bed taken off her jewelries and Max went to the wardrobe to take off his clothes
“Honey am so…just forget about it, I don’t feel like talking” Max interrupted her
He walked into the bathroom and locked the door,(he doesn’t do that).
Maria knew he was angry; she changed her clothes and went down stairs into the kitchen to prepare dinner.
She prepared a nice meal of Egusi soup with turkey and some meat with pounded cassava and a pack of fruit juice and set it on the dining table. She sat down in the palour while watching a movie; after 20mins Max came down stairs and sat on the sofa away from his wife
“Honey, food is ready” she said
“Am not hungry” he replied with a straight face
“Am sorry Na, I didn’t mean what I said what I said”
“Ya you never mean what you say” he replied
“Please come and eat your food” she said, now he was angrier
“I said am not hungry, cant you understand that?” he said loudly
“Ok, if you say so”
They both sat quietly for 10mins watching TV until she said something
“I prepared egusi soup with turkey and goat meat with pounded yam” she said without looking at him. Immediately his eyes widened as he turned to look at her
“Ehn? What did you say?” he asked pretending not to hear her and she understood him
“It’s on the dining table” she said moving her head in the direction of the dining table. He ignored her and after about 2mins he turned to look at the dining table and saw that she was looking at him he turned his face away, she smiled and stood then walked upstairs. She knew her husband well enough, that pride in a man will not allow him stand up in her presence and walk to the dining table.
Max looked back and didn’t see her, he then looked at the table again then he stood up and walked to it and sat down. He knew that if he sat down there too long his wife would come clear the food and he wouldn’t be able to ask for it. As he sat on the table and opened the food it was as she described it, his mouth was full of saliva, he swallowed it forceful and his throat gave out a funny sound, he then thought to himself
“chai so this is what I would have missed because of one Mumu misunderstanding. God forbid” he said quietly to himself, he looked around to see if she was peeping at him before washing his hands and landed on the food. Maria then walked down stairs and saw him eating the food happily she busted into laughter but immediately held her mouth as she saw him staring at her with a ball of fufu in his hand
“What’s funny?” he said
“Nothing sorry” she said still holding the laughter, she sat on the couch
“chai this woman must be a witch, see as she dey laugh me because I chop the food, no worry I no blame you make I chop finish first” he thought to himself. He then tried to act been pissed with the food
“There even too pepper in the food” he said with a frowned face
“Sorry” she said immediately like she was expecting that word.
Max ate the food quietly while Maria watched TV. After 5mins Max had finished eating, he became happy, he sat down beside his wife
“Am sorry about what I said” Maria said, Max smiled
“It’s ok” he said and held her close…
“Where the fvck are you coming from?” Yvonne yelled at James who acted as if he wasn’t listening
“Its 12:45am who the hell comes back at such time. This has become a habit, you coming in so late and you don’t bother giving me an explanation, what do you take me for?” she said angrily
“I told you before that work last longer this days” he replied walking upstairs as she followed him
“O shut up you big terrible liar” she said and stopped behind him. He turned to look at her with anger. Then suddenly he gave her a hot slap across the face she screamed in pain. James didn’t mind as he went into the room leaving her sitting on the stairs and crying with her hand on her face.
After crying for 10mins, she stood up and left the house to Maria’s place. James came out of the room and went downstairs looking for her but didn’t find her. He yelled her name but no response, he walked into the kitchen and opened the pot and saw some fried rice in it, he picked up a plate and served himself and didn’t bother calling her again cause that’s why he sort her…
Maris hears a knock on her door; she quickly goes to open the door but surprised to see Yvonne standing there in tears and a swollen face
“My God, please come inside, what happened?” Maria said helping her in
Yvonne was silent but in tears. Max was watching the TV as she came in and he greeted her with a smile but saw her in tears
“What happened?” Max said
Yvonne sat down and wiped her face then sniffed her nose
“Tonight mark the end of my marriage with James” Yvonne said. Maria quickly sat down beside her
“Did James do this to you again?” Maria asked
“Your eyes are red and your face swollen, what happened?” Max added
“James slapped me today because I asked why he came home late” she said
“That’s a very stupid thing for a man to do. Did he loose his mind?” Max said
“James is a big fool and I can’t even recall why I married him” she said
“Come on sweetie don’t say that? We can sort this out” Maria said holding her hands
“No way, am calling my lawyer to continue with the divorce process” she said
“No you can’t do that” Maria said
“I have already started it and won’t stop now” she said; Max and Maria were silent
“Please can I stay for the night” she asked
“Ok, that’s fine by me” Maria said and turned to Max who nodded in agreement
Yvonne spent the night there just thinking throughout the night.
A knock on the door woke her up
“Yvonne it’s me” Maria said
“Come on in” she said
“Good morning” Maria said
“Good morning” she replied
“How was the night?” Maria said
“Fine, how is Max?” she said
“He’s good”
“I’ll be leaving now” Yvonne said
“Yvonne you didn’t sleep” Maria said
“I couldn’t but I have to go now” she said standing up
“Are you sure?”
“Yeah I’ll be fine” she said
“Wouldn’t you take a bath?”
“No time, thanks for everything”
“You are welcome” Maria escorted her out to her car and she drove off…
