She Belongs To The Kitchen.........Episode 5
The evening of that same day as Betty was pounding yam for dinner and
her husband was already home and shouted at her for still cooking, as
she was rushing things she started feeling a bit dizzy and head ache,
she thought it was something minor so she continue pounding the yam,
after some minutes, the head ache became unbearable and it was like
someone was hitting a big nail on her head. that was when she knew
that if something is not done immediately to stop it, it might turn to
something else, she started going inside their room to get some drugs,
when she got there she met her husband busy with his laptop as usual.
Stephen: is the food ready cos I’m very hungry
Betty: No dear, please pass me that basket of drugs over there.
Stephen: you want to add drugs to the food you are cooking or what?
Stephen asked still facing his laptop.
Betty: no, I’m not feeling fine so please give it to me now
Stephen: I’m very busy here so come get it yourself.
Betty: Honey please I can’t, I’m really dying here, just help me get it
Stephen: you are not serious
When Betty knew that her husband was serious about not helping her
get the basket of drugs she tried and stood up to get it herself, before
she could get there it was been kept, she fainted . Stephen seeing her
on the ground became afraid.
Stephen: Betty what is it ? is this one of your numerous plank or what?
please get up joor. he touched her, pushed her but she didn’t move, he
put his finger near her nose and Lol and behold she wasn’t breathing
again, he became extremely scared. “Betty honey pie, please get up, I’m
really sorry I won’t do it again I promise, please don’t do this to me, I
love you. here is the basket of drugs you asked for, please wake up.
Junior, Junior!!” he started calling his son who was busy watching
Sophia the first.
Junior: yes daddy, what do you want me to.. on seeing his mum on the
ground unconscious, he was shocked. “ahaaa daddy what did you do to
mummy? why is she lying on the floor? haaaa daddy has killed mummy
ooh!” he started shouting
Stephen: my friend will you go and get me my phone before I beat the
stupid hell out of you.
Junior went and get the phone, Stephen called Debbie who is a doctor by
Stephen: hello Debbie where are you now
Debbie: I’m at home now, why are you asking? anything the matter?
Stephen: My wife just fainted oh! she don’t even breath again
Debbie: And you are still there talking, bring her to the hospital right
away let me start coming too.
Stephen: OK, thank you. he cut the call and took his car keys, carry
Betty went and put her at the back of his car and left for the hospital,
on getting there he met Debbie already waiting for him.
They carried Betty inside the emergency room, Debbie went inside and
asked them to leave the room. 20 minutes later she came out looking
exhausted. She met Stephen standing at the door.
Stephen: Debbie dear, how is my wife.
Debbie: she is fine now, at least she has regained consciousness. see me
at my office.
Stephen followed her to her office, “now tell me what happened to her?
why did she faint?” he asked curiously.
Debbie: she fainted because of too much stress, the way I’m seeing it,
your wife has been stressing herself too much and it has weakening her
Stephen: How is that possible? the only thing my wife does is house
chores, you know I don’t allow her to go to work. what else do you want
me to do?
Debbie: Do you think doing house chores and taking care of a home is a
small job? you stopped her from working and in turn made her a slave at
her own house. Stephen I’m really disappointed at you.
Stephen: Hey Debbie don’t insult me here please, just do your job and let
me take my baby home.
Debbie: Sorry Mr , she isn’t going anywhere with you today, until she is
better and fit, she won’t be leaving this hospital so go home, get some
of her cloths and some things she would be needing including what she
will be eating this night. And again, let me give you a piece of advice,
put a call at your working place and ask for a day off cos you will
definitely be needing it.
