“I’m at your gate” Richard said
“At my gate? Why?” Lucy said shockingly
“I came around your neighbourhood this morning and I decided to see you briefly today but if it’s not the right time, I can go”Richard said at once
“no Richard, there’s never a wrong time for friends to see each other, come in!”Lucy said

as their little conversation was going on, Lucy countenance suddenly changed immediately Richard asked about her husband Nathan.”I hope your husband was not upset about my visit yesterday?”
she was mute and immediately Richard figure she was sad, “I hope my question doesn’t upset you?, I’m sorry” he said and Lucy gave a faint smile, “You said nothing wrong, it’s just that I have so much going on now and little things tend to trigger some sad emotions” she said as few drops of tears fell off her eyes.
Richard stretched his hand and cleaned the tears that fell off her eyes, “Please stop crying, you are beautiful and deserve to be happy” he said. Lucy closed her eyes and thought of how her husband keeps neglecting her and broke down in tears the more. Richard became emotional too, he moved closer to her and rested her head on his chest.
“My Husband did not return home yesterday and today he is not back yet and this is 10:30am already and till now no call from him, I don’t know why he treats me like I don’t matter to him, I know he doesn’t love me but must he rub that to my face all the time? “Lucy said, she was in tears, she opened up all the emotions she had been bottling up for more than two years.
