Chapter Twenty

Few days later, I was in the kitchen cooking breakfast in the morning when I started hearing shouts all of a sudden, no doubt they have started, Ignored them, continued what I was doing till I heard a scream and sob. I left what I was doing immediately to go check on them, he was beating her, I felt sad immediately, despite her behavior towards me, I hate seeing such scene. I pleaded with him with a sincere much concern to please stop it. He did.

Hubby: Next time you raise your voice at me again or shout at me, I will send you back to your parents
Me: Am I not enough for you ? why beat her? She was wrong but this is too much, pls control your anger next time.
Rah: Will you shut up? is all your plan, you advised him to do this to me, I bet you will pay
Hubby: You shut up!! before I deal with you the second time.. She has never challenge me, shout at Me the way you just did and next time you try it? I won't be this nice, mannerless woman.

With that, he left the room and banged the door
Rah: Get out
Me: Say thank you at least, he could have disfigured you. Lol.. Next time know how to control that mouth of yours, else you will more of this everyday, and remember I warned you before, you thought he won't raise his hands on the mannerless queen. Now you know better.

I left her room to continue what I was doing in the kitchen.

I never knew she had a wicked plan already, she succeeded later in the afternoon.

She secretly messed up the fish stew I prepared, been Saturday he was at home all day. He was eating lunch when I heard him coughing real bad, was wondering what's happening.

Hubby: Princess!!!
Me: I'm here, what's the....... a slap landed on my cheeks
Hubby: You want to kill me so that you will leave as you planned right?
Me: What are you talking about? and why did you slap me for no reason
Hubby: Shut up and taste this rubbish soup

I tasted it and I was really shocked, the stew had enough pepper and salt, in fact it was just too much. The pain I felt on my cheeks disappeared, because I don't know how I felt again, my legs were shaking, this is real trouble
Me: Believe me, I don't know how this happened, I guess we should ask Rahma
Hubby: Oh! You now want to accuse her for your wickedness? Sit down there and finish this soup
Me: What!!? I can't, this is wickedness and I swear I don't know how...... I felt another slap and another again. I started crying. God!! I am done for. He called me names, instructed me never to cook his food again before walking out. I sat down there crying my eyes out at the same time confused. The mannerless wife came in smiling, right there I was now very much sure she has done her worst. I'm leaving the house for them before she or her husband kill me.

I ignored her and left to my room, my baby girl sleeps a lot, she is growing real fast. I sat down close to her, kissed her forehead and let the tears flow helplessly,, I was in my room till next day. I woke up early the next day, and started packing my most important clothes and other items into my box. Took my bath and bath my baby. I was just shedding tears as I arranged my clothes finally, carried my girl and dragged my box with me with tears while I left my room. I was about unlocking the front door when I heard my name.

Oh no! Bad luck

Hubby: Princess pls I am sorry, I later realized you can never do such thing, pls don't go, I was staring at him, I couldn't control the tears anymore as I let out a sob.
Hubby: Rahma, get me my phone quick

Me: Pls allow me to go, i can't continue such marriage any more, you don't love me and I don't love you, yet I tried to make things right but what did I get in return dear husband. You hate me.

All this while he was standing at the door, not wanting me to leave, he immediately put a call to someone, telling he or she to come immediately, that I am about leaving him.


Hubby: Princess pls, for our daughter's sake, let's resolve this pls.
Me: No.. I have had enough, let me go, this is not a happy marriage and home, what do you take me for? a slave? or a lady without a home? tell me

I remember the past, how my parents gave me out to this man that has no emotions, I felt weak that moment, sat down on the floor holding my baby tight while I let more tears out freely with a heavy pain in my heart..

Prologue

Sitting outside the compound deep in thought, memories of the past years came to my mind like a flash, I couldn't help but shed tears,my tears were falling helplessly. The more I wiped them off with my hands, the more they flowed freely without care, God!! How did I get here? Where will I start from all over again? Why so much pains, betrayal, tears and regrets? Whatever have I done to deserve this Lord? Now my tears were just flowing like a river, when I couldn't control myself, I burst into uncontrollable wailing. At that very moment all I knew and all that occupied my mind was the pain in my heart, the pains my parents made me pass through.
My name is princess. I was married off early. This is my story
These days, I am so busy I hardly log in to nairaland anymore but then, I am back. I have an interest in this story and I shall take my time to catch up. Keep writing dear. The sky is your limit.

Chapter Twenty-one

The pains was just too much, why? why? why? I stood up slowly, still holding my baby tight, pick up my box opened the door and walk out, without a backward glance, was walking to the gate, still with tears when I came face to face with my mother in-law, and two of his sisters.

One of his sister walk up to me, collected the baby from me, while the other collected my box. His mother hugged me so affectionately, I was so touched that I let out more. tears, this woman is really nice and knows who truly her son is.

Mother in-law: Come let's go inside
Me: No mother, I am leaving
Mother in-law: I know, but first I need to know what happened from both side, now come

We walk back inside, met him sitting down with a remorseful look, his wife was also sitting down next to him, she immediately stood up and greeted the guests so nicely, no one suspects anything.

Everywhere was silent, till mother faced her son
Mother in-law: Start talking, why did she wants to leave this early, what happened between you two?
Hubby: Mum, it was a misunderstanding, I never intended to hit her, I was just very angry.
Mother in-law: You hit her? I am so disappointed in you, you are not man enough at your age. Why did you hit her?
Hubby: The soup she prepared yesterday has so much pepper and salt, I was just coughing nonstop yesterday and...
Mother in-law: Princess, is this true?
Me: Yes mother but I swear I don't know what happened and how the food got so much pepper and salt, I tried to explain to him that I know nothing about it, he didn't wait for any explanation, he thought I was just trying to accuse Rahma, the next thing was slaps.

Mother stare at my teary face for some seconds, then turned to Rahma stare at her for a full minute before saying the obvious.


Mother in-law: Rahma, why did you do it?
Rah: Ma!!?
Mother in-law: Say the truth
Rah: I have nothing to do with it
Hubby: Mum, all I want is to pls help me make her stay.
Mother in-law: No, she's leaving
Sister in-law: Brother I am so disappointed, you shouldn't have....
Hubby: Stay out of this

I stood up, carried my baby and my box, I was determined to leave the abusive marriage.
Hubby: Please, I beg you, I know you didn't do it
Me: Yet, you slapped me more than twice, calling me names, pls go ahead and leave peacefully with your wife, that's what you want after all, I am done with you. We shall meet in court.
Hubby: I swear I love you
Me: Don't you ever mention the word love to me because you seem not to know the meaning.
Tell them how many times you beat me, force yourself on me. I am married but I don't know how it feels to be loved, I don't know how real kiss feels, count the times we sit and gist, play as a couple. Tell them!! I am tired and leaving.
Hubby: I will make things right and besides hope you know you are still mine till I accept to divorce you, which will never happen. "He said with a smirk"

I stared at him with hatred, letting the tears flow, I turned my gaze from him and that was when I noticed my mother in-law was on her kneels. Oh no! What do I do now? I want to leave and this woman old enough to be my mother is on her kneels just for me to stay. I was still deep in thought when I heard her spoke up.

"Princess, come stay with me instead. please, think about us, not just him. I was now standing very confused. I took a glance at her daughters pleading eyes. My Hubby's remorseful look and Rahma's smiling face.

What to do now?
