Dimeji storms out of the room.
“Ireti did you take money from my pocket again?”
“Yes, I did,” Ireti replied with confidence.
Dimeji: “How many times have I told you to always inform me before taking my money?”
Ireti: “Look here… my dear, I don’t need any permission to take money from my husband. My husband’s money is our money.”
Dimeji: “Ok…what of your own money?”
Ireti: “That one is my money of course.”
Dimeji: Oh! oh!…so your money is yours but my money is ours abi? Iretioluwa, Let this be the last time that you will take money from me without asking me first.”
Dimeji then left for work.
The following Tuesday, as Dimeji got his car ready for work…Ireti slid into her husband’s pocket as usual and helped herself with new notes or mints. As she pulled out some cash, an envelope fell out of her husband’s pocket.
The envelope was addressed to her husband. Out of curiosity, Ireti opened the unsealed envelope and read the letter.
“Dimeji, my love…
We are currently lodged at the Sunshine Hotel at Idiroko, which you booked for us. I came along with Romeo and Juliet (Our two children). We look forward to seeing you this Saturday as agreed.
(I’m sorry I can’t call or send SMS because of your so-called wife).Always remember that I am your one and only.
Just then…Ireti heard her husband’s footsteps….she quickly hid both the letter and the money.
When Dimeji entered the bedroom, he didn’t even suspect anything.
He reminded his wife about his business trip.
“Honey, don’t forget that I will be traveling this Friday. I will be back on Sunday.”
Ireti just Nodded. She was still in shock.
After Dimeji stepped out of the house…Ireti went to see her bestie (a divorcee) and showed her the letter.
“Ireti, I have told you many times that all men are bad and they cannot be trusted.” Mosun taunted her friend.
Ireti: ” What do I do now?”
Mosun: “We are going to catch them redhanded…You just Leave everything to me.”
By Saturday morning, 5 am sharp, Ireti and her Mosun set out for Idiroko. The journey was very long and highly stressful. They spent more than 5 hours on the road…but they were anxious to see the Harlot and her children.
Mosun had arranged everything including a media crew to cover the whole saga.
On getting to Sunshine Hotel…They made inquiries and discovered there was nobody by the name Monica or Dimeji.
How are you, madam? “Someone greeted Ireti at the reception. It was Lawrence…her husband’s former driver.
“Lawrence, what are you doing here?” Ireti surprised to see him.
“I now work here ma. What brought you here?” Lawrence asked eager to assist.
“Ehmm Ehmm…I came to check on a friend…Monica, she told me she has been staying here since Monday.”
That’s not true ma…We are currently upgrading our facilities..we didn’t take any guest this week at all. Maybe you should call her.
How is Oga? Hope he is fine?… I haven’t seen him in a long time.
He is fine…sorry, we need to leave right now.
Ireti pulled Monica and they returned back home.
Ireti got home late. She was completely devastated, worn out and fatigued.
To her uttermost surprise…she met her husband in the living room, sitting on the couch, eating popcorn and watching a movie.
Ireti became more confused. Her Husband was not supposed to be at home.
Dimeji spoke up: “Surprised to see me??… For your information, I didn’t go anywhere…I only went to see my dad yesterday and got back this morning by 8 am.”
Dimeji laughing hilariously….”I figured you will fall for my trap… didn’t I warn you…didn’t I tell you to stop the habit of ransacking my personal belongings. Hope you enjoyed your fruitless journey to the Sunshine Hotel.”
Dimeji laughed very hard.
“Noooo!!!…Ireti tried to hide her tears and the feeling of embarrassment.
Dimeji interjected: “Don’t even bother. Lawrence had called me that he saw you with your family and friends.
My dear…I’m sure you learned these lessons today:
1) Always ask me for whatever you want
2) Don’t walk with fools.
3) Learn to Trust me…even if you have doubts…pls ask me first. Communicate!
I made you dinner, pls freshen up and let’s eat.”
Dear readers, What is your honest opinion about this couple?
Did Dimeji go too far to prove his point?
Did Ireti get what she truly deserved?
