After Temi had told Lola of her suspicions of her husband’s infidelity, Lola started to watch Oyinda more closely for the signs. She too had observed that he was paying particular attention to a young lady at the party, though he’d tried to hide it. Lola tried not to jump to any conclusions, and not to make it obvious that she was watching him, but she couldn’t help herself.
She had noticed something in the past, but she had pushed it out of her mind, because she felt such suspicion wasn’t warranted. She knew how destructive distrust was to a marriage, and she didn’t want to infect her friend’s marriage with it by telling her something she wasn’t sure about. And she hadn’t paid close attention again.
Oyinda was a genuinely and generally friendly guy. Everyone liked him. And he was very attractive, so she could understand why he got a lot of attention from women. But he also showed a lot of affection and attention towards his wife, such that on-lookers would never doubt his love and devotion to her.
At that time, as she watched Oyinda, Lola couldn’t help thinking it could be happening to her too…
