For a woman to have a peaceful home, she has to be submissive to her husband. The reason why her family is falling apart is because of her work. If she love her family very well, she will definitely leave the job. Let just wait as the story unfolds.

Nah this is that African mentality the woman must be submissive no compromise...she must quit her job, no part time option. I've read too many horror stories about this thing

Now if tomorrow turns bad she's penniless with no options....

They can get a house help with good background check

He can help as well if she can take care of two kids, her job, still cook and clean then he can do his job and still help

We african men always claiming strong, I'm sure his job ain't that strenous physically


Also when she was pregnant, he still wanted to smash its hard but seriously a full human being is growing in that woman....just too selfish

CHAPTER TWO
REDEMPTION

¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤

{KHOLE}

I wanted to redeem my marriage at all cost. I loved Josh and I knew he was still very much in love with me, but the problem was not having enough time for each other. I knew Josh loved to spend precious time with me and I loved to be with just him as well but I could not create time for him due to my work load.
I knew I was the only one that could redeem my marriage but I had no idea of what to do, so I decided to confide in Nancy. Going to my parent would create suspicions but I knew with Nancy my marriage secret was save.
...............................................................

On a sunny Sunday, I decided to visit Nancy for advice. After making lunch, I waited to eat with my family before I dressed up. Josh was in the bedroom while I was dressing up. He only watched me dress up without uttering a word.
Things were not really going on well between us, therefore, I didn't expect him to shower me with compliments when I was ready fully dressed.
I wore a blue high waist jean trouser and a crop top. I wore a black pair of snickers and carried a black bag to compliment my outfit.
I dresses Liam in a cute shirt, a blue jean trouser
and a pair of black snickers as well.
After spraying a generous amount of Swiss perfume, I looked at Josh and was ready to say goodbye.
He was laying with his back and his full attention was on his phone. He looked so calm and handsome. At a point I wondered if he was the same man I quarreled with regularly.
His lips got my attention and I had to fight the urge to kiss him goodbye. He was my husband and we lived under the same roof but we stopped been romantic ever since Josh became a nagging husband. I tried understanding him but I stopped when I could not take it no more.


"Josh, I'm going to see Nancy and kelvin" I said as I wore my earring.

"Okay" he said without sparing me a glance.

Deep down I was hurt. Back in the day, he used to select my outfit, style my hair and shower me with compliments whenever I was ready to go out without him. He would tell me how beautiful and sexy I was even after child birth. I wished I could draw back the hand of time but I knew it was impossible. All I could do was to redeem all that was lost. Josh cold attitude made me more determined to put a stop to the crises we had.


I left the room without uttering a word. I made to Laura's room and informed her that I would be visiting Nancy. she wanted to come with me but I instructed her to stay with her dad. She sadly accepted and promised to remain in door.
I was at her door step when she called me back,

"Mom, You look sixteen. Just like a super model
"
She said with a broad smile.

Words could not have express how happy I was with Laura's compliment. Heavens could testify that she was a blessing to me. She knew exactly what I wanted to hear and when I loved to hear them.
I gave Laura a quick peck and went out of the house with Liam in my hand.


I jeered the engine to life after putting the sit belt on Liam. I already called Nancy before hand, so I had no need to inform her of my visit.
I only on my car stereo and listened to "Forget me not" by Celine Dion. It was an inspirational track.

¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤
I pulled over at Nancy's residence at exactly ten minutes past two noon.
I met Kelvin playing with the twins in the front of the house.
Liam was fast asleep, so I had to take him into my arms as I carried my bag with the other hand.
Derek rushed at me immediately he sighted me and helped me with the car door.
Desmond on the other hand only greeted me and remained with his dad. He was more calm and kept to himself rather than relating with others.
Derek took my bag and walked me in after closing the car door for me. He was my favourite of the two boys.

"And here comes my pretty sister inlaw" Kelvin said as he walked toward me.
I hugged him briefly and we exchanged pleasantries before I went into the house.
Kelvin informed me that Nancy was in the kitchen, so I headed straight to the kitchen.
I could not help but wish for Nancy's time of family. I knew no family was perfect but they seemed more than perfect together. she never complained about her husband and her husband won't stop gushing about her. They are always seen around each other, cuddling and playing rough sometimes.

I dropped Liam on a big couch in the living room and guided him with a throw pillow. I also dropped my bag on the centre table before heading for the kitchen.

"I hope this meal is not filled with only aroma, it must be delicious o"
I said jokingly and stopped at the kitchen door.

"Khole! "

Nancy screamed and rushed to hug me.
I was more than happy to see her, she was as pretty as ever.

I hugged and patted her back like a kid and she smiled sheepishly.

"I was expecting you to come early. that's the reason why we are having a late lunch, I was hoping we would cook together" Nancy said with a funny face when I released her.

I smiled and apologized to her, though I knew she was trying to be funny.

"Now we can round off together right? " I said jokingly and we both laughed.

"You can go now rose, my sister and I will finish the cooking" Nancy said to her house help and she obliged.

I walked to the kitchen tap and washed my hand.
I cleaned my hand with the napkin and said
"I'm happy to see you sis and you look Chicky. I wonder when you will give birth again, all this ayonge you are doing is okay"

Nancy laugh and told me Kelvin was not complaining.

"but seriously Khole, Kelvin wants a baby, but I do not. taking care of a baby is one hell of a task" Nancy said and I smiled at the irony of life.
I had to practically frustrate Josh before we had Liam and Nancy was rejecting having a child.

"You know, you are lucky. your husband understands you perfectly well" I said.

Nancy stirred the Egusi soup she was making and said
" as if Josh doesn't understand you as well"

I didn't give her a reply, I only looked through the kitchen window and thought about who we used to be (Josh and I)

I didn't know that I was so lost in thought until Nancy tapped me. I jerked back to reality and apologized to Nancy.

I knew I was was dying to tell her about my family crises already but I didn't want to get overwhelmed. If not that I needed advice, I would have never discussed my family crises with anybody, but Nancy was not just anybody and I was lost on what to do.

"what is it khole? did I say something wrong? " Nancy asked with concern.

I smiled and told her I was fine but she knew it was all a lie.

"common, you know you are not fine and you coming here is for a purpose. Why not fulfil that purpose sis" Nancy said as she turn off the gas cooker.

She called on the house help to make pando yam and led me to her room after I picked Liam from the living room.
¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤

Nancy laid Liam on the bad and said
"khole , I have know you to be secretive but you just have to share your problem sometimes. though a problem shared is no longer half solved, it is been broadcasted but when you have someone to trust, do not hesitate. khole I love and trust you like a sister and I expect you to do the same.
please, tell me what's up?"


Nancy was right about everything she said and I was more than tired of my family crises, I could not hide it no more"

"Nancy" I called softly and she answered.

"it's Josh" I said and he asked what about him.

"I'm really confused. My home is no longer the way it used to be. No happiness, no joy, no love, everything seems upside down" I broke down.

Nancy took me into her arms. she consoled me and said

"No family is perfect Sis. what do you think the problem is? have you thought of the cause? "


"At first I thought I could be a successful carrier woman and have a happy family. you know I love my job? and I love my family but combining the two seems like the most difficult task on the planet earth.
I have a four months old baby to look after, I have a job to attend to and I have a husband who seeks attention all the time. Nancy, I think I'm gonna explode. my schedule is super tight and the work load is just too much"

I said as I wiped my tears.



"Does Josh complain about your work? "
she asked and I told her yes.

"Then why not quit to give your family all your time" she asked again.

"Nancy, I can't quit, I do not love to be a full house wife. I have a strong passion for my work"
I said and Nancy smiled.

Nancy held my hand and said

"Carrier woman! I know you love your work and you can't quit, but my dear, you can still blend the two, though it's not easy. I also have companies I'm running but I do not let it get in the way of the time I spend with my family.
I'm not trying to sound perfect, no, I'm not perfect but I still try to make perfection out of imperfections.
you just have to try khole"

Nancy's words got to me but I was still confused on how to make perfection out of imperfections.

"Things seems broken beyond repair Sis. how can I redeem my family" I asked Nancy.

"Sis, I will advice you let go of any thing you are holding against him in your heart first. Then you will have to apologize to him, irrespective of who was wrong and right and lastly take a break from all this taking care of the kids and work excuse. Go on a vacation with your husband, make him feel love again. Trust me, I will take care of your kids and I can arrange where the makeup honeymoon will take place"

Nancy said and my hope was restored. She opened my eyes to what to do and I was more than happy to have confided in her.

"I think I will do as you've said. thanks Sis, you are a blessing" I said and hugged Nancy.

She hugged me back and promised me everything would be fine.

I was so anxious to put my home together and have my family back.

" I will take a casual leave tomorrow, please ensure you've sort out where we will be going before Tuesday" I said.

"Kelvin will sort it all out. you guys can stay in Africa or out of Africa. just be ready to feel like a bride again"
Nancy said and winked.
I spanked her and thanked her for been there for me.
She happily hugged me and told me it was her pleasure. I was still in her arms when I heard the soft cry of Liam.

I released Nancy and she Liam into her arms. She rocked her so well and she stopped to cry.

we were still discussing about the arrangement when Nancy's house help came in to inform us that lunch was ready.

"I do not think I will wait for lunch" I said

"why? " Nancy asked in surprise.

"Because I can't continue to eat while my home is on fire" I said and collected Liam from Nancy's hand.

"ehn ehn, so it's like that. After making lunch just for you. madam family, start going please" Nancy said as she playfully pushed me out of her room.

I laughed and told her I would come back for the meal some other day. She smiled and accepted.

I met Kelvin and the twins in the livingroom on my way out. I gave the twins some money and bid the whole family goodbye.

I visited with a heavy heart but I was able to leave with a heart as light as a strand of hair.

¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤
I branched a Chinese restaurant and got chicken and ice cream on my way home. I was so determined to give it my undiluted best.
With joy and hope, I drove back home as I listened to "Unconditional" by katy Perry.

............................................................

I met Josh playing cards with Laura when I returned. They both had a glass of juice and a pop corn pack to themselves.

Laura ran to welcome me immediately I parked the car. she took Liam into her arms and asked about Nancy's twins.

I hugged her briefly and said "Allow me to greet your daddy first"
I intentionally said it with a loud voice, in order to gain Josh's attention.
He watched me as I walked up to him.

"Hi babe! " I said, sounding excited.

I felt the confusion in his voice when he said
"Welcome"

I really wanted to give him a heart attack. I walked seductively to him and sat on his laps.

"You won't even ask me how my outing went? " I asked as I landed a kiss on his lips.

Josh's eyes almost popped out of its socket. I looked him in the eyes and all I saw was shock.
