Ifeanyi dashed after Mary, and caught up with her at the end of the driveway. He pulled her to himself passionately. “Where are you going?” he asked, looking intently into her eyes.
“It’s ok, Ifeanyi. I’m not mad at you,” Mary said, looking away, to hide the tears that were clouding her vision.
“What do you have to be mad about? You cheated on me!”
“Yes, and you’ve had your own back. Let’s just move on,” Mary replied, struggling to be free of his grip.
“No, Mary. That’s not what you think it is. I haven’t been with anyone since we’ve been together,” Ifeanyi said softly. “Look, just come inside, and we can talk.”
Mary looked at him with hope. She didn’t know whether to believe him, but then she remembered that things are not always as they seem. She stopped struggling and he released his grip. She followed him as he paced back into the house, shouting “Security!!!”
A security guard came quickly to his side, and he gestured for him to wait. “Keisha, please get out of my house now!” he barked up the stairs.
“You don’t mean that,” Keisha replied. “Come upstairs, and let’s talk about it.”
