ABIGAIL & JAKE
THE DUSK OF JAKE AND ABIGAIL
Abigail and Jake had been married for some time. A colorful wedding had just been successful barely two years ago. Jake was a specialty in Neurosurgery while Abigail was an Economist. Jake’s routine was so tight because he could even be called in the night to perform an emergency surgery. Abigail would report home very early at about 4pm. She was a business lady. She would close her job early and report home. On reaching home, she would occasionally prepare a meal for her 6 month old son and also her husband. Her husband, Jake would report home at unexpected time.
He would sometimes get home at around 10pm onwards. When sleeping on their wedding bed, he would be called during the sweetest part of the night and get out. This wasn’t so pleasing to Abigail. She hated it. Jake made it sure that he spared one day in the middle –week and also the weekends to spend ample time with his family.
This didn’t make Abigail any better. She kept complaining to her inner self. She decided to break the ice to Jake. She waited until Jake had seated on the dining table area.
‘Jake, I feel you aren’t fulfilling in this relationship. I get so lonely staying alone all along. What happened to the promises we made during our colorful wedding?’ Abigail said as she sat directly opposite to Jake.
‘Abigail, my love’ he came closer and held her shoulders as she cuddled her. ‘I have been sparing some ample time for you in the course of the week. I just can’t make it every day because of the job place. I also feel it too but what am I supposed to do? I just don’t want to lose you’ he said as he carried her upstairs to the bathroom.
Abigail smiled and she kissed Jake. She slowly pulled Jake towards the bathroom area and made him undress. They then entered in the hot bathtub. Despite bathing, they spent an entire two-hours having a good time. Abigail had missed it. Jake had also missed it too.
As days and months accelerated, Abigail had started testing the waters of her fellow colleagues in her place of work. She had started cheating on her husband. Despite the fact that Jake was sacrificing some days and moments to share with his family, Abigail didn’t feel satisfied of this.
This made her test different waters at her place of work. After work, she would have a great time with a fellow colleague inside her car or at a certain hotel. She continued having sex for a prolonged time until she wasn’t talking to her husband about it anymore.
This made Jake think that something wasn’t going right. It went to an extent that Abigail started bringing men to their wedding home. She had known the physiological clock of Jake. She knew Jake wasn’t going to get home anytime soon. She would take a man home just after work and make sure the man had left before 8pm.
She did this for a number of days until one day when Jake decided to come home early to spend some time with he is wife. He had missed Abigail so much that he borrowed ‘a leave’ from the hospital. He was given the leave and he quickly got inside his Mercedes AMG and accelerated home.
He got home and checked his time. He was happy to have arrived home a bit earlier. It was at 4.55pm. He rushed inside the main door and was shocked beyond his beliefs on seeing her wed-lady deeply engrossed in a filthy act with one of the ugly men in town.
He glared again; he didn’t believe the sight before him. They were professionally practicing the act on the sofa. As soon as they noticed Jake had arrived, Abigail pushed the man on the floor and rushed to Jake as she fastened her trousers.
‘I can explain’ she said repeatedly in front of Jake.
Jake gave Abigail a slap that sent her on the carpeted floor as she sprawled down like a dying snake. The man in the room rushed to Jake and held his collars.
‘Who are you?’ he asked. ‘Get out of my house’ Jake said in a commanding voice.
Abigail got up despite a painful red swelling on her right side of the head. She pushed herself on her knees and held Jake’s legs.
‘Please, forgive me Jake. I will never treat you like this again’ she said as numerous tears of strong pain showered the floor.
Jake offered another strong blow on her left side and shouted many words at her. He had loved his wife so much and hadn’t thought of a day like this. He had even borrowed an off-duty session to come by and have her by his side. He wanted a good moment with her. He wanted to show love for the days he couldn’t do it. He felt very bad. He dripped a tear and wiped it using a white handkerchief.
He looked at Abigail and showed her the way out.
‘Take yourself and your intelligent host away!’ he shouted as he pushed her outside. He got outside the main house and told the soldier at the gate to make sure that they were all outside and never to poke their noses in his compound again.
Jake got back inside the house very sad. He took a bottle of wine and filled a wine glass. He got upstairs and slid inside the hot bathtub. He stayed there as he sipped the wine to ease his feelings. He felt that he had been hurt completely by somebody he had dearly loved.
Sometimes in life, those we love dearest are the ones who hurt us the most. Never joke with love. When you have loved somebody, keep in mind that it’s a great sin to make somebody feel very bad as in the case of committing adultery as Abigail did. The biggest sin you can do in a married relationship is to cheat on your partner. Make your partner feel happy around you and try to accommodate the small mishaps that one may commit. It’s always good when you forgive one another and also to encourage each other on major matters pertaining your love life.
