The next call Ugochi received was from
“Hello dear,” he answered. “I just received a
very distressing call from Ijay some minutes
ago. She said it seemed your man saw us
together the other day.”
“Yes, I think he did. It’s not confirmed yet but
he’s been acting very strange. I think that could
be the reason for his behavior, although he
hasn’t asked me directly.”
“Ugochi, don’t you think it’s time we come
clean? I mean, we are not helping anybody by
being secretive. I think it is better we call Ikem
and tell him about this. At least now that he
seems to be suspecting you.”
“Do you think he’s ready to hear this yet?
Personally, I don’t think he’s ready for a
revelation of this magnitude. After all, I know
him better than you do.”
“I know we agreed to take our time and break it
to him gently but I don’t think we can go
through that same route now that he is
suspecting you. I believe it is better we come
clean and just get it over with.”
“I understand you. Can you give me time to sort
this out my own way? At least allow me
determine what he knows first. This might not
even be about us, you know?”
“Okay then. Let’s know what he knows first.
Then we can make our decisions based on
“Good. I’ll talk to you later.”
“Yeah, later. Bye dear.”
By the time Ikem got home, he was boiling with
anger. His stomach felt tight with tension and
his chest felt like it was going to burst from
holding in his temper. After that ridiculous lunch
meeting with Donald, he had not been able to
hold back the anger churning in him. The nerve
of Ugochi. A woman he had loved for three
years, and for her to treat him this way? It was
disrespectful, it was disheartening, and above
all, it pissed him off.
He slammed into the house only to find Ugochi
seated calmly on the settee in the living room
watching a movie. She was sprawled on the
settee, a bowl of nuts beside her and a chilled
glass of wine on the stool where her hand can
easily pick it up.
Ikem stood behind her for a minute, breathing in
and out, trying to calm himself and probably
find a way to ice down the hot pool of anger in
his belly. He was not succeeding though. The
sight of her seated there, seemingly without a
care in the world just annoyed him the more.
He couldn’t fathom how she would throw away
three years of a loving relationship just like
that. And she didn’t even have the decency to
tell him it was over? Instead, she was sneaking
around, going behind his back and seeing
different men. He decided to confront her once
and for all.
Ugochi looked up when she saw Ikem, and
smiled. “Oh hi baby. I didn’t hear you come in, I
was so engrossed in this movie,” she sat up.
“Have you been here long?”
“No, I just came in.” he wanted so much to slap
that smug look off her face.
“Okay, welcome. How was work today?”
“I went to see Donald during the lunch hour.”
“Oh, okay. How is he? Hope there is no
problem with him?”
“He told me something I found very hard to
believe. How could you Ugochi?”
“How could I what? You’re not making any
sense Ikem.” Ugochi said as her heart
hammered furiously in her chest. Here it comes ,
“Do you want to sit there and pretend you don’t
know what I am talking about? You honestly
want to play dumb with me?” his voice rose
any octave as he talked. By the time he
finished the sentence, he was shouting.
“Ikem, keep your voice down please, and
explain to me what you are going on about.”
“I don’t owe you any explanation. You are the
one who has a lot to explain so you better start
Ugochi watched him calmly. She has to be
absolutely sure of what he is referring to before
she can even offer any form of explanation.
What if he is not talking about what she
“Ikem, you know I love you, but this behavior of
yours is not helping matters at all. Sit down,
and let’s talk about this like the adults we are.”
Ikem was so mad, he could barely see straight.
“Are you insinuating that I am acting like a
child? Is that what you are saying to me,
Before she could answer, he dragged her up,
and rained two slaps on her face. The force of
the slap staggered her and she found herself on
the floor. Before she could react and defend
herself, he started punching her, hitting her over
and over until she curled into a tiny ball of pain
and agony. Only then did he release her. He
was breathing heavily, in and out, while she just
laid on the floor whimpering like an injured
She couldn’t stand up, she could scream, all
that came out of her were small whimpers, a
sound very similar to that of an animal in
“In fact, I want you out of my house,” Ikem
raged as he gave her a swift kick. “Go in there,
pack your properties, and get the heck out of
my house. I don’t ever want to see your face
here anymore, you liar and cheat.” He stormed
into the bedroom and Ugochi could hear him
throwing things around like a mad man.
She dragged herself off the floor, painfully and
little by little until she got to the place where
she placed her phone earlier. Despite the pain
fogging her mind and brain, she knew she had
to call for help before Ikem came back to finish
what he had started.
She dialed Dawn’s number with shaky fingers.
Dawn lives close by and she can get there
within a few minutes.
“Hey girl, what’s up?” Dawn said as soon as
Ugochi started sobbing. “Please come to the
house to get me….come quickly before he kills
me.” she managed to say into the receiver
before collapsing on the floor.
