A star falls from the sky and into your hands. Then it seeps through your veins and swims inside your blood and becomes every part of you. And then you have to put it back into the sky. And it’s the most painful thing you’ll ever have to do and that you’ve ever done. But what’s yours is yours. Whether its up in the sky or here in your hands. And one day, it’ll fall from the sky and hit you in the head real hard and that time, you won’t have to put it back in the sky again. Last night I lost the world, and gained the universe.
sleeping was the hardest thing every night. I couldn’t sleep. I got out of bed and found a lady in her undies walking around the house. I Wondered if Caleb didn’t inform her about the kids in the house.
Good morning ” she said getting a glass of milk.
morning” I said
she modelled her body out of the room. Caleb walked in minutes later.
am kindly asking if you can tell your woman friend, that there are kids here ” I said
why, do you say so “he asked
she is walking around naked, and you know the boys ” I said
I will talk to her ” he said
he walked away, he hasn’t said anything to me he just let his girlfriend move in, in our house.
so, when is the final decision” she asked?
this weekend ” I said
are you going to be alright” she asked?
I will never be alright; I love my husband and this weekend will decide if it’s divorce or separation” I said
don’t worry you ,he will never divorce you, if he wanted to divorce you, he would have done it long time ,so don’t stress yourself too much” she said
I know but his little girl is in our house ” I said
madam there is a man here to see you ” Blessings said
let him in ” I said
don’t worry, he won’t divorce you ” she said
I pray so ” I said
Andrew walked in.

I looked at my family picture. Lord why did I destroy such a beautiful family. if I blame the devil, the devil will be upset, let me blame myself.
let her go to her mother’s house for a while, maybe it will give me time to think what I want ” he said
what kind of stupid thinking is that ” Selina asked?
look this is not your marriage so shout up” he said
Caleb you are talking to your elder sister like that ” his mum asked.
mum has she ever been cheated on, with someone she loved, does she know the pain am going through huh” he asked
it’s okay I will go but I was kindly asking for one favor” I said
now all eyes were on me.

I knelt down
my husband ,am asking if you can allow me to stay here for a week, this week I want to show the boys that we are a perfect family, am asking you if you can pretend just for a week so that my children ,our children doesn’t suspect anything ” I said
he was quiet.

the elders left. Selina pulled me aside.

I what to have my last family time with my husband and kids ” I said
I will get your kids; I won’t let another woman raise them ” she said
I went to my room. . I removed my clothes; I was in so much pain. the beating he gave me was really something else, Caleb banged in the room and I covered myself.
what’s the plan ” he asked
we will do what we used to do for our kids” I said
one week” he asked
yes, but kindly ask your girlfriend to come back after a week ” I said
Love is a decision, it is a judgment, it is a promise. If love were only a feeling, there would be no basis for the promise to love each other forever. A feeling comes and it may go. How can I judge that it will stay forever, when my act does not involve judgment and decision.You are not the victim of the world, but rather the master of your own destiny. It is your choices and decisions that determine your destiny.In any moment of decision, the best thing you can do is the right thing. The worst thing you can do is nothing.Sometimes, making the wrong choice is better than making no choice. You have the courage to go forward, that is rare. A person who stands at the fork, unable to pick, will never get anywhere.Even a book can be dangerous in the wrong hands, and when that happens, you blame the hands, but you also read the book.
I kept on spinning around on my office chair deep in thoughts, when I looked at her body it had bruises,how did I become a monster? mama never raised me to be a monster to hit or beat a woman ,yes it hurt me that’s why I lost my mind…how can you feel when you find your woman with another man? you lose your mind .
earth to Caleb ” he shook me
oh hey Danny ” I said
Danny was my sister’s husband ,mumba while she was out but now the all family is back ..

I understand but do you still love her” he asked
