Just A Touch
“I can no longer bear this attitude of yours. What exactly is your problem? You keep coming home late and you feel there’s nothing wrong with it. I’ve always known you to be a workaholic and I’m not surprised but for the sake of our daughter, your daughter, create time for us especially her. She is still a little girl and she’s lacking motherly affection……..” My dad said.
“Kola, what exactly are you talking about? What do you mean by my daughter lacking motherly affection? Am I not trying as a mother? I get her everything she needs and doesn’t need. Do not put my daughter into this but you should stop nagging all the time. I’ve been out of this house since 4am and I cannot come back to rest peacefully. I am tired of this.” My mum fired back.
“Listen to yourself, when last did you perform your duties as my wife or as the woman of the house. Lara, please we need you. Your daughter needs you. Your husband needs you please.” My dad continued.
