“Yea…I know who you are, where is my wife… where is she right now, hope you did not over stress her at work…I just hope you did not gave her a heavy work load without considering her condition, she is pregnant did you know that and you shouldn’t be stressing her out…how bad is her condition…
“ooh, I never knew she was pregnant, congratulation though but Michelle is never stressed at work, she works according to her ability and we take it slow with her, guiding her whenever she makes mistakes and never fails to correct her, both me and the other staffs, I can assure you that is not work stress is probably the pregnancy, if Michelle want to stop work because of her condition then is all good, I wouldn’t want any harm to come to her or the unborn child. And Concerning her Condition I wouldn’t know because I’m not a doctor…but she was admitted the moment we got here, maybe you should ask the doctors to know how critical her condition is…she was really in serious pain and when you didn’t show up…I decided to bring her down here…

“My wife almost died the night I went to drop you and you refused to get down from the car even after I told you that my wife needs me to take her to the hospital, she almost died all because of you Mirabel…I do not want you to be coming close to me or to my office, can’t you just get the fact that I’m a married man…
“yes, I got it James, I know you were married before I came to you…and I’m not asking you to leave your wife all I asked is just a little attention from you…I really desire to spend quality time with you…and look at the way you are drooling all over me which means you also wants me as much as I wants you…your eyes is travelling up and down my body….why not just say it out and stop holding back your feeling…i wish I’m the one carrying your child but then I’m not jealous is your wife, I just want my own time with you…
