Snippets from part 1
The two let go each other, and stared at the current husband.
I’m still wondering who the wife stood next to or even who she sat next to. I really don’t know what happened next.
What I know for sure is the two gentleman are wondering who got the first call amongst them. A conundrum
They all couldn’t stand the silence so the husband decided to speak first, but he too doubted the outcome of his thoughts and arguments.
“Excuse me nurse”, he finally said to a passing nurse.
“I have a question, not medically related but something I need your opinion on”,
Would you go back to your ex hubby in the name of reconciliation if he extended a hand to you?
Faces around went white, as white as the nurse’s uniform , scarlet if we may describe it, in other words. The nurse was shocked too. Nurses, in general, are more prepared to answer questions relating to someone’s health or giving directions to lost patients
“No, i wouldn’t. I got lots of pride and wouldn’t stoop so low. Never ever. Mwana wani iyeye nguva yaakatambisa. No. Nix. Bodo ndaramba.” she declared rather than answered
“Excuse me Sis’er, let me ask what you normally encounter in your day to day livelihood, if a child gets sick is it right to let the father of the child know?” Asked Shaddy the father of the child, not willing to be outdone as he was fast trading on soft ground
“Yes of course what’s wrong with that because …
“Sorry to inject you nurse but even if the parents are separated is it still the duty of the father know the condition of his child.”
“Of cause the father has the right to his child, regardless of the situation” answered Matilda, as prescribed on the badge slightly above her breast on her ‘once’ white uniform.
She quickly walked away fearing her answers might be used as bait and diving into waters that might be too shallow to swim.
To the 3 seated on the bench, regardless of their sitting arrangements, issue is, The nurse scored for both sides. Scored for both teams. Scored for both opponents.
Question is. Would you go back to your ex? Some say ex is short for example
Question is, does the mother has a right to call the child’s father even midnight regardless that they are now divorced. How will her (the current) husband take it. How will the recipient’s wife take it?
Decision making is a gift and it’s not everyone who is gifted. To those who turned back for reconciliation and things didn’t work out, you too by now know they have no kind words. It suffer continue
To those who heeded the call for reconciliation and things turned out best, they walk with a spring in their step. Right move. Right decision. Life is good. Second thoughts are the best, right?
Let me get back to the trio on the bench and find out how the drama unfolded.
