My V Bride.
I took few steps back with my hand on my mouth, “baby, you just bite me.”
“I’m so sorry, I was only trying to practice what you taught me about how to kiss.”
“I know but that was too aggressive.” I said and held her hand as we walked to our room.
“I’d already promised that I won’t divorce you at least for the next three months , but I want to know the truth, are you really HIV positive?” I asked.
“I’m not lying baby, it’s the truth. ” She replied with a pathetic face.
“It’s alright. I’ve got one more thing to tell you.”
“Okay.” She nodded her head.
“I’ll be absent at home for three days, I’m going for a programme.”
“A programme?” she asked with her eyes expressing shock.

The House was large, others came out of their bedroom and screamed.
“What! Fred!” they called happily and welcomed me with handshaks and hugs.
We all sat.
“Man, your wife had really had you under her that you forgot we were once friends.” Kelvin said.
“Not like that.” I lied.
“So how?” Kyle asked as the rest chuckled.
“We told you never to get married.” Afred said like he knew I was regretting my marriage and truly I was regretting it.
My eyes turned sour at his words and I spoke: ” I had actually come to discuss my marriage with you guys…”
