The Unforgivable Housewife!! Chapter 10

For the previous chapter (9)click Here
I frowned.

"Would you like to hear the good news first?" he asked after not getting a reply from me.

“The bad news.” I said.
 
“Your husband has paid a flight ticket to America for Rosemary to leave the country and have her baby.”

“When?” I asked.

“Next month.”

“What is the good news?”

“You are right, Jude is not the biological father of the baby. That guy I saw is the father.”

I opened my mouth in shock. I never expected it to be true. What a miracle! “How did you find out?”

“I acted like a good guy but she never opened up. She only told me the guy was her ex-boyfriend and he was disturbing her for money.”

“Money for what?” I asked curiously.

“The idiot didn’t say, so I convinced her to give me the address of the guy.”

“She gave you?”

“Of course! I told her I was going to threaten him to leave her alone and I would lock him up if he ever disturb her again!”

“That’s good.” I said. “But how did you find out?”

“I went to see him and I promised to give him some amount of money to tell me why he was harassing her. He told me his mother was in the hospital and he needed money from Rosemary but she refused. He said the both of them planned to dupe a rich man of his money by giving him false news. He said he is the rightful owner of the pregnancy.”

“Can you imagine? Did you still pay him?”

“Of course I did. I am a man of my words. I still don’t want anyone to know we are related.”

“Thank you bro.”

“You are my sister and I will do anything for you.” he said. “What’s my name?”

“Tunero!” I replied and laughed. 

“So what’s your next plan?”

“I will visit Rosemary.”

“What?!!”

“Calm down bro, I have a plan. I will talk to you soon and you can stop seeing her.”

“That’s not a problem, take care.”

I ended the call and went to check on my children in their room. There were reading for their upcoming exams. It was the perfect time to do what I had to do. Jude will surely cry for the revenge I have for him.

The next day was going to be Friday and I will take my kids to their grandfather’s house after school. I went to check up on Jude to see what he was doing. He was pressing his phone as usual and I gave him a wide smile.

He quickly hid his phone under the pillow and said to me, “Hey darling, how are you?” 

I was not interested in snooping. I am no longer in team snooping. “I’m fine dear.”

“If you are okay now, you should join me in the room. I have missed you so much.”

“I have missed you too but I have to finish my drugs first and after that, I promise to make your life sweet like honey.”

He laughed. “Thanks dearie.”

“Goodnight.” I said to him.

I left and went to my room to have a good night rest. 

******
The following day, I drove Sarah and Sebastian to their school and went to a super market to buy some provisions. After buying some groceries, I went back to my car and drove to the house of Rosemary. I arrived there, parked my car in front of her house and went to knock on the door.
 
“Who is that?” a male voice asked.

I suspected the voice should be her brother. “It’s me Mrs. Modupe Lawson.”

I didn’t hear anything after few minutes. A dirty looking Rosemary and her big stomach answered the door.

“What do you want?!” she asked.

The idiot had the guts not to greet me, I just gave her a forced smile.

“Good morning Rose.”

She eyed me. “Morning, what can I do for you?”

“Can I come in so we can talk?”

“Talk about what?” she asked in an angered tone. 
I didn’t know why she was angry. I should be the one mad at her.

“Please let me come in first,” I said. “I am not here to fight but make peace with you.”

Rosemary gave me a surprised look. “Come in.”

I walked in with the provisions in my hands. I entered into a beautiful living room. It had a very big plasma television just like the one in my home. I shook my head. I gave her the things I bought.

“For me?” she asked stunned.

“Yes.”

She cleared her throat. “Thank you ooo.”

“You are welcome.” I said and sat down. She left and brought a glass of water for me. I took it from her and dropped the glass on the stool beside me. God forbid will I ever sip from the water. Do I want to kill myself? Only God knows what she put inside the water.

She sat down opposite me. “You can talk now.”

I smiled at her again. “I know we have been enemies for a while now because my husband impregnated you. I am born again now and I do not want to fight with you anymore. The bible says to err is human to forgive is divine. I want peace between you and I. I also want my children to be close to your child when you give birth.”

“Are you sure of what you are saying?” she asked in a shocked tone.

“Yes.” I replied. “I want us to be friends.”

“Does your husband know you are here?”

I shook my head. “He does not know but I will tell him I was here later.”

“Okay but I never had a problem with you.” She said saucily. “Your husband was the one that approached me to be his girlfriend. Luckily for me, I got pregnant. You didn’t have to put the blame on me but Jude.”
I coordinated myself because I was in rage inside. If not for the plan I had, I would have pounced on her and the bastard baby would surely come out premature.

“I understand.” I said in a soften tone.

“Now that you want us to be friends, I hope I can come to the house anytime I like?”

She asked me with so much arrogance and confidence. How dare her?! I was going to show her serious pepper for doing this to me.

“Of course you can.” I said and rose up. “My home is also yours.”

“Are you going?”

“Yes. I need to prepare food for our husband.”

Rosemary laughed. “Good to hear that from you Modupe. I appreciate your visit.”

Calling me by my name without respect. You will surely crawl to beg me later. 
“You are welcome.” I said and walked to the door to leave. She escorted me to my car and I drove away.
I drove to the destination of my brother’s office in fury. How could she look me in my eyes and utter nonsense?! It wasn’t her fault but Jude.

*******
“Good to see you Modupe.” Tunde said after I reached his office.

“Good to see you too.” I took out the camera from my bag and gave it to him. “His naked pictures are inside and his password still remains the same.”

He smiled wickedly. “Are you really ready for this?”

“Yes but don’t send his pictures to his clients now.”

“Why?” he asked.

“I want to give him evidence that I want to go into a hotel business.”

“Oh I see. That won’t be a problem. I have a friend who bought a very big land and I can give you some documents to use. Your names will be written on them.”

“Should I tell Jude I bought the land already?”

“Yes.” He answered. “Tell him you need money for building the hotel. He will surely give you when he knows your parents are wealthy. For him there is nothing to lose Modupe.”

I sighed. “My children will be writing their exams on Monday and finish on Friday. Mother is traveling to the US and I will persuade her to carry them along.”

“Okay.”

“When will the papers be ready?”

“I will send them to you tomorrow and also an estimate on the amount you need.”

“Thanks bro.”

"You are welcome sis."
********
I left towards the closing time of my children school and went to carry them. I took them to their grandparent’s for the weekend. I discussed with my mother about her trip and she agreed to take her grand kids along with her. It was a big relief for me.

I went home in the evening and Jude was pacing round the living room.

“Is anything the problem?” I asked.

His eyes were red. “How dare you visit Rosemary?! You gave you the permission to do that?”

“But I told Rosemary I would tell you myself.”

“Well, she beat you to it.”

“I didn’t do anything wrong,” I said. “I only went there to make peace.”

“Peace? What do you know about peace?”

“Jude I will not quarrel with you because I am in no mood for that.”

“Why didn’t you tell me you were going to see her?”

“That’s because you would not have accepted! You will probably think I want to hurt her!”

“What is your motive for going there because I do not trust you!”

“I don’t have any motive but to make peace. For the past one week I have been sick, I thought what if something bad happened to me, what if I died. How will my children survive? Rosemary is having your child and she will definitely move in and be the one to take care of my kids. I only want peace and nothing else.”
 
“Are you sure?”

“Yes!”

He flew his arms around me, giving me a tight hug.

I managed to hug him back.

“Thank you Modupe.”

“Thank you for believing in me and I want to apologize for everything I have done in the past. I am happy I am getting better and in few days’ time, you will have me.”

“It means I can’t have you now?” he said solemnly. 

“I held his hands. “I am yours forever. You do not need to rush because you will have me all to yourself very soon.”

“Thank you my love.”

“Thank you too.”

I left him and rushed to prepare dinner. We ate together, said some few jokes and went to bed in our separate rooms.
*******
The next day, Jude left the house. He told me he had to do something urgent in the office. Who am I to argue with a man I no longer love on a Saturday morning? I told him to take his time.

An employee of my brother Tunde came to give me some documents. I went through them. I called my brother to thank him and waited for Jude to get back from where ever he went to.

Jude came back in the evening. After eating his dinner, I took the documents to him

“You bought a land and you want to build a hotel?” he asked after I narrated everything.

“Yes and I need your help and support.”

“What support?”
 
“I want you to get a loan for me.”

“Don’t you have money?”

“I am not buoyant for now because of the money I used to buy the land.”

How much are we talking about?” he asked.

“It’s close to two hundred million.”

He widened his eyes. “That is a lot of money!!”

“But we will definitely pay back.”

“What about your parents?” he asked. “Why can’t they help?”

Shameless man.

I gave an enforced smile. “My father wants me to do that on my own and support me later.”

“You know if I collect the loan I will have to give one or two collateral's?”

“Yes I know.” I replied. “This house and the one you are building will cover it.”

“But it’s risky!”

“My father will surely help if there is any problem but I believe nothing bad will happen.”

“I am the manager of the bank and getting the money won’t be a problem.”

“Thank you dear.”

“I have not accepted to collect the loan for you,” he said. “Let me think about it.”

I rubbed his head. “There is nothing to think about. You should apply for the loan on Monday. This project will surely benefit you and I. I don’t mind writing your name as the owner of the hotel. What's mine is yours.”
I sighted a frail smile on his lips. Unwise man.

Jude touched his chin. “Have you thought of a name for the hotel?”

“Not yet.”

“I will think of a name and tell you.”

I rose excitedly. “That means you have agreed to collect the loan?”

“Yes my love. Anything for my beautiful wife.”

I hugged him cheerfully and grinned at the beginning of his doom. Don’t forget I am Modupe Lawson. I am the Unforgivable Housewife!!!
