Two years now, she had borne the agony of a barren wife. She couldn’t understand, why a woman like her couldn’t fulfill the wishes of every mother in-law. She could remember vividly when she walked down the aisle, She was full of smiles..little did she know that she had signed an agreement with sorrow and sadness…the most deadly twins. Her life was turning upside down…with her in-laws on her neck and the increasing impatience of her husband to manufacture a child. She had began to lose her mind.
The story would have been different if her husband had not violated her marital rights..um! it wasn’t his 1st,2nd or 3rd time..coming back home late and drunk..if she asked ‘why?’..she would get beaten for it. He slept from one woman’s bed to another, this she continued to allow and put up with, trying her best to do all the do-able of a married woman, all to no avail. He constantly reminded her of her most dreaded woes, her bed could testify of the magnitude of her tears, she searched and prayed to a GOD she blamed for all her storms. Her husband joyfully played the role of the thorn in the flesh. But on that fateful day..that appointed hour..that destined second, her stories of woes changed.
Just like every other day, he came in drunk and angry, he tried to pick up a fight…she didn’t respond…he became more offended..she was mute..he charged at her..she weaved….he kept coming more and more….her heartbeat raced faster…he threw the vase at her..caught her by the left side of her hand..threatened to kill her..she screamed..he choked her..the instinct of survival was awakened..
Yes blood was trickling from his head..his muscles tensed…she was scared..she screamed..it happened too fast…she wept on her husband lifeless body..she only defended herself.
-SHE WAS CHARGED FOR MURDER.
-THE DOCTOR CONFIRMED HER 3wks PREGNANT.
-SHE WAS GRANTED BAIL BY THE SUPREME COURT DUE TO HER CONDITION.
-9 months later after her husband’s death..she carried her 1st male child.
Now she was weeping aloud as she embraced her son who was soaked in tears already, she could barely complete her sentences…This was her story..it was THE STORY OF MURDER.
