What would you do if you found out your spouse was cheating on you?
According to a story shared on Laila’s Blog, a man was murdered by his wife after she discovered he had been having secret affairs.
The story which was sent in by the deceased’s daughter, shared an insight into what led to the death of her father and eventual death of her mother shortly after.
The lady also shared how their death led her into a worrisome lifestyle just in a bid to make ends meet.
Read the story below:
“My name is ************ the second child from a family of five and the second by birth. I happen to be the first daughter, it was a big and one happy family growing up. We may not have been wealthy but were contented as dad always provided for our basic needs with the support of mom. Things were going fine until that fateful day.
Vividly, it still seems like yesterday but is over twenty something years now. On that afternoon, mom had visited dad in his shop to get some money probably for the day’s meal but on getting there, she caught dad and his mistress cuddling and kissing inside the shop. It was a great shock for mom for a man she had been married to over fifteen years right in front of her making out with another woman.
With rage in anger and betrayal of their matrimonial vow, mom went into a fight with the mistress and dad as well but for the timely intervention of the neighbor a lot of damages would have been recorded and maybe one of them may have died that day. This wasn’t the first time mom and dad were engaging in a fight. Angrily, mom left with the words in her mouth you will surely come home and meet me as i was made to understand by the neighbors days later.
I didn’t know how it happened but what I saw when I rushed home was dad lying motionless on the floor and all I could hear was call the police, it was then it dawned on me that mom had killed dad.
I saw a neighbor holding her and all she was saying and shouting in tears was “I didn’t know what came over me, it is the devil oh, I didn’t mean to kill him oh”. That was the day a part of me died as well.
Even though infidelity was a sin to God, was that a justifiable reason for mom to engage dad in a fight to the point of hitting him so hard with an object to take away his life? was all i could mutter in my heart. Not quite long after, the police arrived and dad’s corpse was carried away, with mom handcuffed and taken to the station. It was a day I cried as never before and only wish it never happened.
Months later dad was buried and with mom still facing prosecution in prison, life became unbearable for us, for everyone abandoned us to our fate and we were left at the mercy of God and some good people. But again another tragedy struck….
Mom was rushed to the hospital and was diagnosed with high blood pressure with fever, few days later she died. I think mom died because of the guilt she felt about dad’s death and also being afraid of imprisonment and leaving behind the children. Faced with these realities I became a shadow of myself and hated life so much to the point I almost committed suicide.
Life became so tough and difficult for us that I had no option than to survive, this is how I got into prostitution. I remember those cold night in the city of port harcourt how I stood on the road with a friend who introduced me into this lifestyle though she later died as we heard. I did many despicable things with men not because I was happy or chose to but was left with no choice and more also I needed the money.
Ordinarily, most of the men who went through me wouldn’t have and I wouldn’t have dreamt of it happening if things didn’t turn this bad. For over four years I became a runs girl and was taking care of the family who didn’t know the nature of my job but was happy. Yet in all this there was no genuine happiness in me.
Today, big bros is a graduate and my immediate younger sister is in her finals all thanks to my effort but it was all to my own detriment. Now i understand that in life everything comes with a price. Everything i did in order to survive has adversely turned against me. With tears I write to you not because I am afraid to die for I know we must all die someday, I cry because this wasn’t the purpose of God for his children.
The doctor said to me to be strong that with God all things are possible and there is nothing difficult for him to do after series of test and diagnoses has proven that I am suffering from leukemia (cancer of the white blood cell).
This is how my life has turn out to be, at mid 30’s no husband, no child, no investment. It is a world full of sorrow and pains. I know I may not have longer years to live again as the doc said except if there is a miracle. Please help me and pass this message so others can learn from the mistake we found ourselves in life, there is no justification for going into crime or unholy act no matter the circumstances in life.
Always cherish your home and never give the devil the chance to manipulate your actions. I pray as I end this memo that I find peace and favor in God’s eyes. Thanks for your patience in reading through.”
Chai! This is so touching!
