Gbemi Alakija met and married her high school sweetheart Demola Alakija and God blessed the marriage with three beautiful kids, Ronke, Deji and Bayo. Dad’s favourite Ronke who is fondly called daddy’s girlfriend enjoys watching her favourite programme Dora on daddy’s laps while the other kids plays with their Xbox game in their room.
To everybody this is a family made from heaven but silently Gbemi has an aching heart, aching from the knowledge of what could destroy their beautiful marriage if she dares speak. Gbemi work as petroleum Engineer having graduated from University of Ife and did a Masters degree at the prestigious ImperialCollege. Demola on the other hand graduate from University of Hull where he got a degree in Business Information Technology and got a job with Morgan Stanley but later lost his job due to the recession shock Britain suffered from.
Gbemi’s job required her to travel to different countries which Demola understands and this does not affect their marriage. Since Demola lost his job he became a web designer and could work from home which the marriage benefited from because he was able to look after the children whenever his wife was away. Gbemi’s absence from home means Demola will need an extra hand with the upbringing of the children and running the home i.e. cleaning, cooking and so on. They needed a domestic help so to speak.
Vera was employed as an Au pair through a domestic worker agency. Vera was a 19 years old Polish girl who came to the UK to study English Language and took up the work of an Au pair while she studies part time. The minutes Vera was introduced to the Alakija family was the minute trouble crept into that home.
Vera is a beautiful young lady; she wears her lovely ginger hair full of life and bounces each time she turns around. She is someone you can call a lady with an hour glass body, with voluptuous breasts and well carved hips and buttocks. She is a woman no man can resist, not even Demola. He waited long enough for Gbemi to go on her official trips as usual before making his move on Vera. Making sure the children were clearly out of sight.
Vera on the other hand was very much up for and welcomed Demola’s advances, they made their love affair or should I say lust affair a daily adventure once the children are in school. Vera became the woman of the house wearing very seductive lingerie around the house while she cooks and clean which she does on a regular basis while Demola loves every minute of his wife being away from home.
On one of Gbemi’s short visits home, she notice her husband was not so excited to see her more so he was not even interested in making love to her like he normally does the minute she steps into the house. This sudden change in Demola’s behaviour raised suspicions and Gbemi felt she needed to snoop around the house for clues and ask Demola questions he might be too uncomfortable to answer. Gbemi being a very loving wife who never wants any disagreement between herself and her husband left things as they were and thought this might just be a figment of her own imagination so she brushed it aside.
On another occasion Gbemi found a female underwear which neither belonged to her nor her daughter as her daughter is too young to wear such, this time she confronted Demola who lashed out at her by accusing her of not trusting him. Vera overheard their argument and quickly interrupted by saying ‘’Am sorry I must have mistakenly included some of my underwear in the laundry I brought in’’. That saved the day for Demola.
Deep down Gbemi’s heart she had a hunch something was amiss in her home, so she decided to take some days off work unknown to Demola who had gone off his usual school runs.
Demola’s bubble busted when he called out to Vera as soon as he opened the door to the house expecting Vera to leap into his stretched out arms, but he was more than shocked to see Gbemi quietly walk out of their room. Such shame and embarrassment on his face.
Demola, have you got something to tell me? Asked Gbemi. Demola fumbled with his words then managed to ask ‘’what do you mean?’’ After much fumbling with his words, Demola managed to confess to his wife, broke down in tears and begged his wife for forgiveness.
Now Gbemi is faced with a big dilemma, she is too heart broken and just wants to walk away from it all.
SHOULD I STAY OR SHOULD I GO?
