Grissel woke up late for the first time she slept over.

‘Gosh my body hurts’, she complained to herself yawning. It was just as if she forgot herself and the events of last night.
‘Tom are you in the study?’

She called out and walked out of bed and her legs hit her torn night gown on the floor. She looked down and as if the same force from last night pushed her wedding night into her brain.

Grissel walked back slowly to the bed and had a seat.
As if her tears were sent a special invite, they flowed freely.

‘Tom I hate you. This is not how to start.’
She stood up and paced around.
‘Okay get it together, he is your husband now and the man you love.’ She murmured to herself while picking up a blouse and slipped it on.

He located her blue flip flops on the rack and the next thing was the sound of the door banging.


Tom was seated in his office on a Sunday which was supposed to be their thanksgiving.
His office door flung open which startled him.
‘Aunty wh…at are you do…ing here,’ he asked stuttering.

She gave him a look which explains she knows something.
‘Mike called you didn’t he?’
‘What were you thinking Tom?’
‘I’m sorry Aunty, I didn….’
‘Hold it, tell that to your wife when you get home.’
I can’t go back to that house.’
‘Oh you will, pack up your stuff now.’ His Aunt yelled.
‘I’m not going with you besides I can’t look her in the face.’
‘You will when I drag you there.’

‘What exactly did Mike tell you?’
Tom called Mike when he sneaked out to his office and narrated the events of last night to him, hoping he would keep his mouth shut.
“What is wrong with you?” Julia was fuming with anger. “Did I not raise you well enough?”
‘Aunty this is not about raising me well.’
‘Should it be about defiling your innocent wife of just twelve hours and then hide in this office when you should be home ashamed of yourself?’
‘Innocent indeed.’ He murmured to himself.
“What did you just say?”
“Nothing, I just coughed.”
“Stupid boy, get yourself in your car now.”
“What if I don’t want to go Aunty?’
‘You want a harassment case filed by your wife right.’
‘She dare not do that.’ He raised his voice with fear. ‘That’s not even possible and besides she has no proof.’
‘I guess you are forgetting where she works Tom. Just get yourself out into the car already.’
‘Okay,’ he said with a skipped heart and picked up his car keys.’
“I will drive behind you.’ His Aunty said.
‘We would have to pass by KFC.’
“What for Tom.”
‘It’s almost lunch time, I want to get some food for us.’
‘That’s not important now, Grissel will make lunch.’
‘How sure are you,’ he said and frowned.
‘I know Grissel, she knows her responsibility even in difficult times.’
‘But I’m hungry now, I didn’t get to eat breakfast because she was fast asleep.’ Tom feigned hunger. ‘What makes you think she would be up getting lunch?’
‘And whose fault was that.’
‘Okay, let’s not go there. I can still get back to KFC in case your instincts fail you.’ He announced quickly.
‘Trust your wife, she loves you.’
‘Love.’ He mentioned and smiled.
‘Looks like you are not happy about that news.’
‘Oh I am, I get to eat home meal then,’ he feigned a smile.
‘Let’s get going.’ Her Aunt announced.
They both walked out and got into their cars.
Julia, who took over her sister’s responsibility since she died giving birth to Tom feels she over pampered him. She did everything like her sister asked. Because of Tom and her sister she never got married and never given birth as young as she was then.
She accepted Grissel when he brought her home and treated her like her own. She just loved the girl.
Grissel is the gentle type. Hardly talks about what’s bothering her which Tom seemed not to have a problem with. She was certain they loved each other after a year of being friends and another year of dating. But his demeanor earlier gave her second thoughts.
‘Was he fooling them all this while just to destroy Grissel like he did to the other women.’
Julia was still in her thoughts when her phone rang.
‘Mike, yes I got him. We are on our way home though I planned leaving him at the gate.’
‘Thanks a lot Aunty.’ Mike responded at the other end of the call.
‘I should be thanking you. Let’s talk when I get home.’ She said and hanged up.
In no time they were packing in front of the house.
‘I messed up and I’m sorry. No, she won’t believe that.’
He shook his head.

‘I love you and I didn’t mean to hurt you. Which love?’
Tom who was rehearsing how to apologize to his wife stopped when his Aunt knocked on his glass.
He opened it reluctantly.
Julia sat down and gave him a scornful look.
‘Now you will get in there and apologize to Grissel.’
‘Wait, you are not coming in with me?’ He asked hoping for a positive answer.’
No I am not.’
‘Why, I thought you will help me out in case she sends me packing.’
‘It seems you don’t know your wife at all.’
‘I do, just that this is a different case and I wished I had some one accompanying me.’
‘Really, who was there when you jumped on her like an animal?’ Julia yelled. ‘Just get in there and tell her whatever comes to your mind.’
‘I can’t do this.’
‘You can, look that lady loves you more than you even do yourself.’
‘How do you know that?’ Tom knew he was wrong about last night but it seems something else is worrying him.
‘I know everything Tom, from your escapes down to Amy’s abortion.’
‘Huh!’ He exclaimed.
‘Oh yeah, Seattle new Hospital.’
‘Don’t Aunty me.’
‘How di… d yo.. u..’
‘Imagine I know, who else knows.’
Tom gave her a weird look.
‘Yeah she knows son and hasn’t said anything about it.’

Tom looked so ashamed of himself and kept his head down on the steering.
‘You are ashamed, I get that Tom but your wife wasn’t ashamed. She freaked out when she found out but I intervened.’
He nodded.
‘Do you know what she said?’
Tom shook his head again.
‘Look at me son.’
He raised his head slowly unable to look Julia in her eyes.
‘She forgive you Tom.’
‘You think so?’ He asked.
‘Yeah, she knew about Amy and then went ahead with this marriage.’ Julia reassured him.

‘I don’t trust that forgiveness.’ He whispered.

‘Would you have preferred she confronted you and cancelled the wedding because I don’t see how that would have solved anything?’
‘But she could be planning something evil Aunty.’

‘Shut up you ingrate. I stopped her from confronting you.’
‘Thank you.’ That’s all he managed to say at that point realizing there is sense in what Julia was talking about.
‘Now you will go in there and clean up your mess.’
‘I thought I had reasons for what I did last night Aunty but it’s so clear Grissel is my wife now.’
‘Reasons?’ She asked raising her brows.
‘But it’s all cleared now.’ He said.
‘I know first nights can be overwhelming and you keep thinking whatever goes wrong and right had reasons but son it’s all in your head.’ She advised. ‘Get over yourself because you are married now.’
‘Though your advice is late but I have no other choice than to take it.’ He managed a sigh while Julia got out without looking back.
She walked into her car, got on her steering and drove off. Tom got out reluctantly.
‘She will forgive me, I know but would I be able to forgive her. What am I even saying.’ he hit his head so hard and decided to sneak in first before driving in.
He opened the gate slowly and entered. He was glad he hasn’t got that security yet. The door was just as he left it. He entered and the aroma froze him in front of the door.
He knew where that was coming from so he walked towards the kitchen so as not to make lots of noise.
He stood at the entrance watching through the curtain.
Grissel who was so tired after just two sauces, a pack of fries and one cartoon of chicken leaned against the wooden table that the kitchen appliances were connected to.
She never gets tired but she’s not so sure why she’s so tired that afternoon.
Tom kept peeping. ‘I love this lady.’ He thought.
He walked into the kitchen and Grissel didn’t even notice she got company.
‘Enough for two?’
She jumped up.

‘Sorry I startled you,’ he walked over standing in front of her.
Grissel looked up from where she kept her face when she got startled.
‘This chicken tastes amazing.’ He said leaning against the table closer to his wife.
He looked her in the face and wondered why she was smiling.
‘What?’ He asked sheepishly.
‘Nothing, just the way you are munching the chicken reminds me of the fi…..
‘The first time I told you I love the fried chicken you made.’
‘Yeah.’ She responded with a smile.
There was a cold wave that introduced itself into the room and silence engulfed them.
‘I’m sure you must be hungry, let me just get the table set.’
She announced out of the blue and was walking away when he held her back.
‘Do you think we could talk later?’
‘Okay, let me just get your food ready.’
‘Get some rest Grissel. I will set up the table.’

‘Huh’, she exclaimed with a surprise grin on.
‘Oh don’t give me that look. I know how to do that at least.’ He grinned and walked away fetching plates.
‘Alright, I will wait in the dinning.’ Grissel walked out while constantly looking back.
