The Trinity Episodes 13&14
She gave him a good hot kiss and whispered to him
“This is not the end boy. The game has just begun. See you later” She said.
Amah turned round and started walking out of the room. She paused at the door and spoke out loudly to Helena
“Helena, say hi to Ismael for me. I pray he doesn’t take after his father’s character.” And with that, she walked out.
Michael looked around and finally spotted their clothes where Amah had hastily thrown them under the bed.
He called Helena and they both began to dress up. All trace of the passion that had consumed them just a few moments ago had disappeared.
“How could you have been so dumb! Why didn’t you lock the door?” Helena said looking very upset.
“You shouldn’t blame me, didn’t you like what happened in the shower?” Michael said.
“And did I hear her call you her man? Michael, who is that girl? Who is she to you and how does she know so much about us?” Helena asked looking really pissed.
Michael grabbed her and tried to to play smart, kissing her.
“Cut that crap boy! I am not falling for that. I should go be with my husband now.” She said and started walking out on him.
“Hold on, don’t go yet. What about the rest of the money?” Michael asked.
“Such effrontery! You can be so annoying. Last time I checked, you used that money to shut your girlfriend up. Have a nice day, ok!“. Helena said and walked out of the room.
After his discussions with Sophie, Jason had decided to go back home and try work things out in his marriage. Something had clicked in him as he spoke with Sophie and he knew that the best way to deal with his problem was not by running away from it but rather, by facing it.
He decided that he had spent too long running and believed he could make amends by sorting out the issues with his wife. He was quite impressed at the way Sophie had spoken about Michael although he felt she didn’t know him enough. He knew Michael enough to know that he couldn’t have changed and he hoped Sophie wouldn’t get hurt.
He got home and found the house all quiet. Usually, his wife would hear the sound of his car and come wait for him by the stairs to shout and cause trouble. He looked at his watch and noticed how late it was. “Well, she could be asleep.” He thought to himself, it is quite late”
He went to his son’s room and found the boy sleeping soundly. His teddy bear had fallen off him and was on the floor. He picked up the bear, tucked it in with the boy and pulled the bed sheet over both of them.
Ismael would always push off anything you wrapped him in even with the A/C blowing cold. He kissed the boy on the forehead and made his way to his room, steeling himself for a verbal onslaught fom his wife.
On getting to the room, he was shocked to find the place empty. His wife wasn’t on the bed. He went into the bathroom and then into their walk-in closet but she wasn’t there.
“Hmmmmmm” he thought to himself “where could she be?”
He picked up his phone and begun calling her. Before the phone call could go through, he heard footsteps coming from the hallway.
“That must be her” he thought to himself.
Jason came out of the bedroom to meet her up across the hallway.
Helena was surprised to find her husband back from wherever he had been for the past two days.
She had been too tied up in her thoughts to have noticed his car packed in the garage. She had taken a taxi as she had wanted her movement to be untraceable.
“Where have you been, Helena?” asked Jason.
Helena walked up to her husband and planted an intense kiss on his lips.
“Hey, what has come over you dear?” Jason asked.
As much as he liked what just happened, this was totally out of character. It had been quite a while since they had kissed or had sex together. All she seemed to do was shout at him and quarrel.
“Shut up Jason, I will be in the bedroom” Helena said and went into the bedroom to wait for him.
It felt to Jason as if God had finally begun to answer his prayers. His wife hadn’t acted like this in a very long time. It most probably was due to the time out he took from home, he thought to himself. He had never left home that way before and it was likely that shock that made her miss him. Anyways, he was glad his wife was back.
He quickly rushed into the bedroom and saw that Helena had changed into a transparent silk nightdress and was looking really hot and sexy. Helena was a beautiful well-endowed woman. A Rush of blood went through Jason’s veins as he saw his wife.
He joined her in bed. He got on top of her and begun kissing her lips passionately. Soon they were engaged in passionate lovemaking.
At the height of their passion, they both found themselves climaxing together. Suddenly, out of nowhere, Jason shouted out Sophie’s name.
“What!” asked Helena “Who the hell is Sophie, Jason?
Jason couldn’t believe himself. He didn’t realize how deeply he had come to like Sophie. How could it be that he would utter her name at such a crucial time
This was all so complicated. Just when he and his wife were getting back together he thought to himself. How would he get his wife to believe that there was nothing between him and Sophie or any other woman for that matter? It would just seem to confirm her suspicions that he had been cheating on her. Waooo, this was all so complicate now!
Helena jumped off immediately completely turned off from the passion. She wore her nighty and turned to him
“Jason, answer me please? Who is Sophie? She asked him again.
“Sorry dear, I am really sorry, it shouldn’t have come out like that. Trust me I am not cheating on you if that’s what you’re thinking” Jason tried explaining.
To Jason’s surprise, Helena was acting rather calm over this issue. That was quite unusual of her. By now she would have been screaming, shouting and yelling at him. She would even have either thrown him out of the house or dramatically moved out of the house herself.
There was something different about tonight. He couldn’t put his finger on it but Helena was behaving like a changed woman. She appeared quite concerned about the abrupt utterance. Jason felt she was really hurt and kept apologizing.
“I am not accusing you of cheating Jason, I know I have been distant lately. This “Sophie” must have become very special to you for you to mention her name” Helena said
Her statement softened Jason. He felt a need to come clean and honest over the whole Sophie matter.
“Let me be honest with you, Sophie is a special person like you rightly said but there is nothing going on between the two of us. I met her not long ago at the height of when we were having our issues. She listened to me and encouraged me to make it up with you. She is the key reason I came back home. I didn’t know she could have entered that deep in my subconscious to the point that I would mention her name at such a time as that. I am really sorry. I know how this feels, but I’m truly sorry,” Jason pleaded.
Helena took Jason by his hand. She then kissed his hand and looked into his eyes.
“I understand. it’s entirely my fault. I pushed you away and I am really sorry about that too.” said Helena.
“Come on, let’s get over this. Come to bed” She continued.
Was this a miracle or what? What was happening? Jason found it difficult to take it all in, considering that they were virtually at each other’s throats just a few days back. He jumped back into bed and decided to ride out his luck. There truly must be a God out there who listens to prayers.
Michael didn’t go to Sophie’s house that night. He wanted to keep his distance after his early morning confrontation and discussion with Joe. He valued his job much more than Sophie. Besides, he had Amah’s threats on his mind.
He went straight to his apartment and locked the door behind him. He already had gone through two encounters of unlocked doors and didn’t want to have a third.
Michael was battling it out in his mind whether Amah was going to be discreet about what happened at the hotel after all the money he had given to her. He knew he needed to do something to keep her mouth shut.
Sophie was still awake waiting for Michael to show up so she could go to sleep. After waiting for long she picked up the phone and gave him a call.
Sophie: “Michael where are you, it is getting late?
Michael: “Sorry I didn’t tell you, I can’t make it tonight, there is something you need to know. I will tell you in the morning”
Sophie: “It’s about Joe right?
He mumbled something and quickly ended the call.
A text message from an unknown number had come through while he was still on the phone with Sophie. As soon as he finished the call, opened and read the text message which went:
“I KNOW WHAT YOU DID TO NICKY. I WON’T LET IT HAPPEN TO SOPHIE”
Michael got so frightened and shaken up that he almost threw the phone on the floor.
Early the next morning, Jason’s house was awesomely peaceful and tranquil. Helena had gotten Breakfast ready for the family and they all sat together at the dining table to eat their breakfast as a family.
For a moment, everything was normal. Jason had smiles on his face throughout that morning as he spent time enjoying time with his family.
Suddenly the bell rang.
Jason looked at his time. Usually the only person to ring the bell at this time would be their driver who would usually appear to take his son Ismael to school. This was however a bit too early for the driver.
Jason put Ishmael’s backpack on him, and together with Helena, walked their son to the gate to meet the driver.
On getting to the gate, Jason was surprised to see a pleasant looking fine lady at his door. The driver was nowhere in sight. Helena’s breath however caught in her throat as she saw Amah standing at her gate looking as innocent as someone who wouldn’t hurt a fly.
