The Trinity Episodes 11&12




Michael was shocked by the question. It was meant to be a secret that only two people could knew about.

“Answer me; Are you Ismael’s father? Amah asked him again.

“How do you know this, Amah? Michael asked.

“Typical African! You answer a question with a question. I really don’t care whatever answer you give me though, I already know the truth and listen, there’s something you should know about me, I’m very possessive, sharing is not my thing. Tell Sophie to back off.” Amah said and walked out of his office.

Michael knew instantly that he had met his match. Amah was unpredictable; in fact, she was capable of doing anything. She apparently wasn’t ready to let go no matter how much he cheated on her. Amah was proving to be a possessive woman who wouldn’t give up on anything.

Michael didn’t have an inkling what he had let himself into. When Amah got something in her possession, she could do the unthinkable to keep that thing as long as she wanted it. Amah grew up in a home where everything was at her disposal. She never lacked anything until her father was arrested for fraud.

She had been spoilt growing up. She had learnt to go for whatever she wanted. It was common knowledge amongst her friends and family members that whenever she was unto something, she got it no matter what she had to do to get it. Also when she got what she wanted, she never let it go until she was done with it. Including a man like Michael.

Jason was still in Sophie’s house keeping her company. The conversation turned to Sophie and her past. Sophie found herself telling Jason about her love for Michael. Her love for him seemed to come through every word of hers; in all her talk of him however, she never mentioned that he ever cheated on her.

She just wasn’t ready to wash her dirty linen in public. She regarded Michael as her own personal mess and she felt she would clean him up with time. Besides this was only the second time she was meeting Jason, it didn’t seem right for her to tell him all about her relationship.

“Sophie, tell me, what was troubling you when you ran into my car that day? Jason asked. He was curious to know. Somehow he suspected it had something to do with Michael.

Sophie wasn’t ready for that question. Answering it truthfully would expose Michael. She was conscious that there was something not right between the two men. However, Michael was her man and she felt obliged to defend him till she knew Jason better.

“I had an issue at work but thank God it’s all under control” She said.

“I am glad to hear that” Jason said.

“How long have you been married Jason? Sophie asked. It was surprising how Sophie was really particular and concerned about Jason’s marital life.

“I have been married for two years and I have a three year-old son. A lot of people say he looks a lot like his mother which is true but he also has a lot of my character traits.” Jason said.

His statement got Sophie smiling.

“Your wife must be really lucky; I would love to meet her,” Sophie said.

“Why not, I’m just hoping to get our issues fixed.” Jason said. He looked quite hurt when those words came out of him. His words and expression betrayed the inner turmoil he was going through. He seemed to wear his hurt and family issues on his sleeves. Sophie quickly caught on and she knew Jason needed help.

“Do you want to talk about it” Sophie asked.

Without hesitating, Jason began pouring his heart out. He sorely needed a listening ear.

“I love my wife very much. She was an Angel when I met her. Everything changed 6 months after our wedding when I accused her of cheating on me. It was on the basis of a flirty message I saw on her phone. I guess I was feeling insecure; I should have given her time to explain herself. I kept accusing her for days. I was so hurt by what I had seen but eventually I learnt to live with it and forgave her”.

Ever since, She has been doubtful and curious of what I do and where I go. But I have been honest with her. My life is predictable and I live by the same schedule every single day. From work to lunch, from lunch to work then later I go home. This is me, I don’t do anything else”.

“She all the time accuses me of cheating because I sometimes come home late. She would insult me, disrespect and yell at me in front of my own kid. Can you believe that for the past 48 hours I haven’t been home? I have been sleeping in a hotel because I don’t even feel welcomed in my own house any longer.” Jason said.

Sophie noticed the sincerity in his eyes and couldn’t help but feel pity for him. Time was far spent. It was getting late; they had been talking without even noticing.

Meanwhile, Work was over and Michael made his way to a guesthouse where he had scheduled to meet with Helena. It was a usual rendezvous point for them.

Michael already knew the room number where Helena would be waiting. He got to the room, turned the knob and opened the door. Helena was in the shower by then with her dress lying on the bed.

“Perfect moment for a romantic shower.” Michael said to himself. Without thinking, he got undressed and quietly joined Helena in the shower. She was delighted that Michael had joined her. Michael stood behind her and began kissing her neck. He slid his arms towards her breasssts and began fondling them.

Her body was covered with soapy foams making her body slippery. This gave her an unusual sexual feeling yet very enjoyable. From behind she could feel his hardened manhooood. She needed it on the bed. She turned to face him and started kissing him on the lips.

Still kissing, they got out of the shower completely naaaked making their way to the bed. Getting to the bed area, they heard the clap of hands like someone applauding a performance.

Startled, they tore away from their kiss, and turned to see Amah sprawled on the bed, her head against the headboard patiently looking at them.

Time was far well spent and Jason got ready to go. Sophie found herself quite at home with him. She had enjoyed his company so much and didn’t want him to leave. She found herself thinking that Jason was far better company than Michael. Just before he got into his car, Jason informed Sophie that after Nicky’s burial, he had something urgent he would love to discuss with her.

Sophie wasn’t quite sure the real reason for the bad blood between Michael and Jason. It was obvious they knew each other and had history. But what exactly their relationship was and what might have happened to cause such bad blood was beyond her.

She thought to herself that Jason was truly a man of mystery. He seemed to hold the answer to several questions; Questions regarding his relationship with Michael as well as regarding her sister Nicky. She was definitely interested in unravelling this mystery.

Before he drove off, they both agreed to a lunch date for the following afternoon.

Sophie found herself looking forward to the next day and the lunch date with Jason.

She had really enjoyed her day with him and she found herself comparing him severally to Michael. Both men seemed a whole world apart. At a point she questioned herself as to why she was thinking so much of Jason. She consoled herself with the thought that she was empathizing with him regarding his situation with his wife. Something else in her seemed to suggest that it was more than this.

Back at the guesthouse, Michael and Helena stood in shock at the sight of Amah. Michael knew this wasn’t good for him. He quickly looked around for his clothes but they were nowhere in sight. Amah apparently had hidden them.

Amah sat back on the bed with a drink in her hand and just watched as they embarrassingly looked for their clothes.

Helena ran back into the bathroom to get a towel or something to cover up herself.

As soon as she left, Michael went straight to where Amah was. First he stood by the bed too embarrassed to know what to do and trying hard to come up with an excuse.

Finally, he realized that there was no way he was going to get out of this that easily. He remembered his encounter with Amah at the office less than 9 hours ago. The way she had slapped away his ring and her words kept ringing in his ears.

Amah meanwhile was enjoying all the drama. She knew it would be tough for him to wriggle away this time. She had Michael right where she wanted him.

There was some silence in the room. The tension was so high that you could cut it with a knife.

Helena stayed put in the bathroom. She didn’t know who the woman was but she was definitely up to something.

“How could Michael have been so stupid and foolish not to lock the door?” Helena thought to herself.

After a while, Michael knelt down on his knees and started pleading with Amah.

“Why are you pleading?” Asked Amah

“I already knew you were sleeping with your brother’s wife. Oh! Michael have you forgotten so soon? Have you forgotten the question I put to you in the office just a few hours ago?”

“Anyway, I knew you would both be here that’s why I decided to show up. I wanted to let you know I have you in my palms. Michael you are still my man no matter whom you sleep with. However, you should worry more about my mouth. It doesn’t keep secrets. “ Amah said.

“Please lady, it is the work of the Devil don’t tell my husband, I beg of you” Helena said from the bathroom. “Please name your price and I will honor it. Just don’t tell my husband please,” She continued.

“Please, don’t do this; I will do anything you ask ” Michael also added.

Amah found the situation very amusing. “So it has gotten to this, paying me to keep my mouth shut. Anyway that’s a fair deal, I could do with some money but hey I still can’t trust my mouth.” She said.

Michael quickly reached for Helena’s handbag. He knew that there would be some money in it. At least if nothing, there would be the balance of the money she was to bring to him. He found a thick wad of note in it and handed it over to Amah.

“Please, take this for now,” Michael pleaded.

Amah stared at him, took the money from him and slowly counted. It was quite obvious that she was enjoying everything especially the pain and discomfort that she was putting both of them through.

After counting, Amah got up from the bed, put the money in her bag and walked up to Michael.

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.

To be continued....
