As Betty was packing her cloths for tomorrow, her phone started ringing
Betty: Hello love how are you doing, I know you must be enjoying with your husband
Debbie: please come over to my office right away.
Betty: I thought you left already, hope all is well
Debbie: just come please
Betty left what she was doing and rushed to Debbie’s office looking worried. on getting to her besty office she saw Debbie crying her eyes were already swollen.
Betty: Oh my goodness! Debbie sweety what is wrong? why are you crying? I thought you went home already to tell your husband the good news. please say something to me
Debbie: You won’t believe what I saw when I got home.** she started crying again. Betty went closer to her and hugged her warmly, patting her on the back, ” baby girl, its alright. no matter what happened you don’t need to be crying like this. you know your condition. its alright dear, I’m here for you . all is well my sister.
Debbie: I saw him trying to rape blessing, Vick tried to rape my sister.
Betty: Oh my God! Vick did what? no no no, its not true, the Vick I know would do no such thing.
Debbie: I saw it with my own eyes, my sister was even crying. my innocent little sister. oh poor thing!
Betty: how did you know he was trying to tape her
Debbie: blessing said so, I know she can never lie to me and I trust
Betty: and you don’t trust your husband?
Debbie: its not like that. I ….
Betty: then what is it like? tell me? you have been living with your husband for years has he ever in any way cheated on you?
Debbie: No. but
Betty: let me finish. he has never cheated on you, even when you have been denying him of his right. even when you have not been fulfilling your obligations as a wife. even when you have been selfish. even when you have been taking him for granted, taking his quietness as foolishness yet he remain faithful to you. now your sister told you that he tried to rape her, instead of you to look deeper into the matter you all bought what your sister told you because you claim to trust her, and that she is innocent… dear don’t forget that not all that glitters is gold.
Debbie: its not like that dear. just that he might have tried to force her because I have been starving him of it.
Betty: Oh! so you even know you have been starving him of sex. you have not been doing what you should be doing. yet you never consider how he must be feeling. even if he had tried to do it. I don’t blame him one bit. you are to be blame Debbie! you are!
