The Second Chance…Episode 31

Posted by on September 8, 2016.

Episode thirty one
Tony entered Alice’s room carefully. She smiled at him. Then she stood up and walked up to him,
‘i’m sorry for disturbing your sleep’ she said.
‘no problem’ he replied.
‘please, is Maria your biological daughter?’ Alice asked and Tony frowned.
‘what kind of a question is that?’ Tony asked.
‘i’m really sorry. Its just that Maria just left my room just now and i dont really know whats wrong with her’ Alice said.
Tony was surprised ‘what did she say?’
‘she thinks i’m your girlfriend, you needed to see the way she warned me seriously to stay away from you. Is that how she has been chasing all your girlfriends away?’ she asked.
‘sorry Alice. I dont tolerate other people prying into my private life. Goodnight’ he said and left.
He sounded rude.
Maria left for school before anyone in the house woke up. She was trying to avoid her dad. She got to school quite early. The school assembly had not even began.
‘Maria!’ someone called from behind.
She turned and saw Susan walking towards her. She waved at her. They began to walk towards the school auditorium as they chatted along.
‘Susan, whats up, where is your brother? He didnt come to school today?’ Maria asked.
Susan sighed and shook her head in the negative.
‘he wouldnt come to school today’
‘my step mother refused to let him come to school today’
‘thats because he refused to wash her underwears for her’
‘what? You mean your stepmother told your brother to wash her underwears for her?’
‘yes Maria. She beat him black and blue yesterday. If not for neighbours timely intervention, only God knew what would have happened to him’
Susan was sobbing at this point.
‘what happened?’
‘my step mother is hell. This morning, she siezed the allowance father gave me’
‘she said we were wasting money in the house. She even refused to give me food this morning’
‘yes. Life has become a living hell since our stepmother entered into our house. She will beat us up, frame us up before our father, she wont give us any food’ Susan explained in tears.
‘what does your father do about it?’
‘he does nothing. He only tells us sorry thats all. Daniel and i are regretting ever letting her into our house in the first place. We had every opportunity to refuse in the first place but…. We thought we were doing it for our father’s happiness’
Maria sighed ‘when i was telling you not to let any woman into your father’s house, you said you want your father to be happy. Now he is happy, you are sad’
‘you were right Maria. I wished i had listened to you’
‘i will never let any w—e into my father’s house. I dont want any problem. And i dont want father to forget mother’
‘thats true. Dad rarely talks about mum again. He has forgotten about mum’
‘and they will maltreat me too. I dont want that’
‘Maria, learn from me, do not let any woman into your father’s home if you dont want to end up like me. I am suffering. I wonder what poor Daniel will be going through by now, perhaps, he would be recieving series of beating. I pity him’ she said bursting into more tears.
How she wished she had kicked against the marriage from the start.
The experience shared by Susan made Maria determined to deal with any stupid lady who wants to reap where she did not sow…..
