SINS OF MY PARENTS
Rachael looked at her phone once again. It was the hundredth time she was checking time. she glanced at the empty pillow next to her. “Where are you this time of the night Joe? ” she whispered in the silence of the dark room. Her husband had not returned since he told her he was going to visit some friends. That was around 16 hours and now it was 01 am her husband was no where to be seen.
She recalled the moments they spent together before they married, he was so loving and caring. He was always taking her out for dinner, some movies as well as taking walks around the township. she knew from the way he respected her and talked to her on phone most of the time that he was going to love her and be there for her always.
But now here she was a year in her marriage and he had started coming late home. she shed a tear, ” It’s not fair Joe that you treat me this way.”
She slowly sat up from the bed careful not to hurt her baby in her womb, she was heavily pregnant with only weeks towards her due date. She went to the kitchen and opened the refrigerator, poured some cold water in a glass cup and walked to the living room with one hand holding her belly.
As she sat down she felt her baby kick and she let a smile. “what is it my Angel?” she whispered, “did I woke you too? Am sorry my baby. I know you can feel my sadness. I wish your father was always here for us, but he has chosen another kind of life that leaves the two of us out of his life.” she wipped a tear forming in her eyes when she heard the door open.
Looking at the wall click, it was almost 03 am. her husband walked in with a bottle of beer. He looked at Rachael sitted on the dinning chair and shouted, “what are you doing up this time woman?, you don’t know where the bedroom is?” She looked at him and shook her head.” so you come this time and instead of asking how I am or your child, all you do is talk nonsense?
She was heading home from a church service, singing some praise songs. Rachael was feeling the peace and joy that came with worshiping and praising God at the prayer meeting.
Just as she was about to turn and join the small road leading to her sisters Flats who she had gone to visit, she noticed a man standing by the side of the path. He was busy talking on his phone.
Rachael excused herself as she made an angle to avoid bumping into the man. he stopped her and greeted her. “am fine thank you” Rachael answered cheerfully. The man extended his hand. “am Joe” he said.
” oh Rachael” she responded shaking his hand. “sorry to bother you but my friend directed me to these flats but I cnt seem to locate the exact flat.”
Racheal had explained the place Joe asked about.
The following day she met him again coming from the neighbour flat. They greeted each other and that was the begining of their friendship. They exchanged numbers and communicated frequently when she had gone to work as a marketing manager of ZSIC insurance company in the copperbelt.
After some time, Joe insisted she got a transfer back to livingstone where he was managing his father’s company. Their love grew stronger and a year later they married with a powerful wedding ceremony.
All this time Joe had pretended he had stopped drinking and was a loving and caring man to Rachael. In her heart she was convinced he loved her and would always be there for her.
Until one day, 6 months down their marriage he came back home late and drunk, hes altitude towards his wife changed, he would scold her, come back home with his clothes stained either with women powder or lipstick. Each coming day he turned from bad to worse….
she got pregnant and hoped things might change a little, but no he didn’t bend not even after knowing his wife was going to give him a son. All he did is leave Rachael money as if that was all she needed.
Back to the present….
Rachael looked at her son who had waken up and his tiny fingers struggled to push the showel covering him. she sighed and wipped a tear droping from her eyes and lifted him up. she put him close and breastfed him. it was now passed 14 hours and her husband had not shown up at the hospital..
At home Joe had received a call from Monica around 7 hours that morning and he prepared himself ready to go and see her. he loved his wife but for some reason he had fallen in the trap of Jessy. A woman he recently employed at his company. her beauty and charm had caught his attention, he found it boring being with Racheal eapecially after a night he had spent with Jessy at a hotel were they had a company conference with other business men and women.
The problem with Jessy was she was too demanding and had succesfully managed to force Joe neglect his marriage.
As he drove to the hospital He received a call from Jessy who had demanded he wanted to see her that morning.
” what is it Jessy?” he had asked her upon reaching at her apartment, of course the one he had bought for her.
“I missed you she said lurring him to join her in bed.” Instead of turning her down and head to the hospital to see his wife Joe decided to stay on and spend the whole morning at Jessy’s.
He looked at his watch, it was 15 hours.” I have to get going” he told Jessy who was still in her small night silk dress.
she poured herself some wine as she folded her legs on the chair by the bar, ” and why is that?” she said sternly looking at Joe.
” um uh i have to see my wife at the hospital. I was told she was in Labour and I have to check on her and see how it is going.”he explained almost begging.
“Oh so am just to be used uh?” Jessy snapped standing up to face him.
” how many times have you promised me your time and commitment.? Now here you are talking about your stupid pregnant wife.” she added angrily.
Joe sat down to reason with her. Telling her how much he loved her and promised to make up time for them, by the time he left her place heading to the hospital it was already 17 hours. he rushed to the ward as directed by the nurse he met up from the reception.
He was told his wife was discharged an hour before he went there. he felt panick and guilty he had done that to her family. He couldn’t even be there to receive his baby boy . slowly he made his way to the Jaguar car he had packed outside. he grabbed his fon and dialed Racheal’s line as he joined the main road driving with one hand, The phone rang for the fifth time without her picking, as he drove on he planned the story he would give his wife as an excuse for not being their when she needed him the most. He somehow felt bad he had not lived up to his promises, feeling the urge to change especially for their child..
As the wall fence to his house emmerged, he drove right to the gate, the gate man opened the gate at his first hoot. “how are you boss ?” the gate man greeted him.
” am fine” he answered not really paying any attention to him..
“where is my wife ?” Joe asked as he locked the car. ” oh boss am sorry but your wife just left, she came back in a taxi some 40 minutes ago and entered the house with a baby. she later on came out with a big suit case and went out .”
” what? ” Joe screamed, “what do you mean she left? how could she just leave without saying anything?”
“And boss”, the gate man added ” there’s more to that”. Joe gazed at him still trying to digest the fact of his wife leaving with bags . “what now?” he snapped.
“boss she left the baby” he added in a low voice.
Instead of answering him Joe ran to the house and banged the door open. in his bedroom he found the baby sleeping peacefully and a note besides him.
By the time you read this. I would have gone, i cannot take it any more. i married you and trusted you because I loved you with all my heart, but you have sudenly turned Into this person I cannot cope with nor understand. I can’t do this anymore. am going to start over. but I cannot do it with this child. I leave him in your care. You will take care of him as he deserves and I hope for his sake you will change for the better. I love him very much, but I can’t live with a part of you. I want a complete start over and I hope to find happiness and peace once again.
Good bye.. Rachael..
Joe folded the note as his hands shook, drops of sweat fall off his forehead. “oh my God Rachael how could you?” He sat down holding his child and cried. ” what have I done?” he whispered to himself.
