Chapter 41«Zainab and Muhib’s POV»
“You need to warn your mistress,” I informed Muhib while I flung my bag on the bed furiously.
“Woah! Woah! Woah!” he raised his hands up, “what are you talking about?”
“Don’t play shit with me. Tell your mistress to stay away from me. I won’t be thinking about my home training the next time she tries any rubbish with me again,” I removed my hijab and made to enter the bathroom but Muhib immediately blocked me.
“Hey! We need to clear two things here. Firstly, I don’t have a mistress. Secondly, I don’t know what you’re talking about. How will I have a mistress when I have you?” he made to kiss me but I pushed him off.
“This is a joke to you right? Everything is a joke to you right? Just like this marriage is a joke to you,” I declared.
“Zainab, calm down. Tell me what happened?”
“Sideeqah came to my office today and fought with me. She was threatening me.”
“That woman just doesn’t know when to stop,” he said to himself.
“She caused a serious disturbance at my workplace today and I don’t like it,” I told him and moved to sit on the bed.
“Baby, am sorry. I will deal with her and-”
“Are you still seeing her?” I demanded.
“No! What!” he yelled, giving me a look.
“Hey!” I shouted, “Don’t give me that look. I had a right to ask. With the way she came barreling into my office, one would think both of you still have an ongoing affair. So forgive me if I had to ask.”
“Well, we don’t have anything with each other. I have nothing to do with her. I love you and not her. I want to be with you and not her. Please give me a chance to show you how much I love you. How much I want you. It’s just you, Zainab. Only you. Let me show you,” he stepped closer to me and raised me up.
I was in a trance as I stared at his beautiful face. I was lost in it. Lost in him. Lost in his love. But I needed to see it. I couldn’t find it. I needed him to show me. To lead me to his heart. I needed the key to his heart, so I could protect it from any harm. I was ready.
“Then show me.”
Those three words were all it took.
We went for each other like two hungry animals. He devoured my mouth like an hungry lion. He wanted to be in charge as his tongue fought for dominance with mine. I let him guide me. I let him show me the way. Our clothes flew in different directions.
He gently laid me on the bed and placed a kiss on my forehead.
“Relax, am here for you, it’s going to be okay,” he told me.
My mind was clouded with different dirty thoughts and I paid more attention to his body than what he was saying to me.
“Hey, do you trust me?”
“Yes,” I gasped.
And that was all it took for him to take me to another new level. One I had never experienced before. He kept taking me to a new level, each higher than the previous one. We were chanting our names as waves upon waves of pleasure shook our bodies. Naked body rubbed against naked body as we became one that night. We loved each other that night like never before.
“Is she in?” I asked one of her maids who led me in.
“Yes, she is in. I will inform her of your presence now,” she told me and left the sitting room.
Not much has changed here since I last came to this place.
“Baby,” Sideeqah drawled much to my distaste.
What did I see in her in the first place.
“Sideeqah,” I stood up.
“Oh please, sit down. This is your home too.” She sat down next to me and I scooted away. She didn’t make any efforts to come closer and I was glad about it.
“Am going to say this in a simple and clear way,” I started talking slowly, “Please leave my wife and I alone. We love each other and we are both happy together. Stop these troubles you’re causing. Get something to do. Do something useful with yourself.”
“Oh cut the crap!” she rose up in fury, “Don’t tell me about that bullshit. I won’t stand for it?”
I stood up too, “I think you pretty much understood what I just said, judging from your reaction. Good day and have a nice life.”
She grabbed my arm and yanked me back. I turned and glared at her.
“How dare you! How dare you say all these to me? Huh! After all I have done for you,” she screamed into my face.
“And what did you do for me? Sex! Just sex, Sideeqah, just sex. You and I had sex. Don’t feel too high about it. You were not the only mistress I had. Just because I always kept you around doesn’t mean you meant anything to me. You never did and you never will. The earlier you start realizing that, the better it will be for you,” I bellowed.
This woman really had some nerves!
“What!” she shrieked at me, “I gave you two years of sex with my body. Every drop of sweat! I did everything for you like some sex slave and this is how you treat me?”
“Sideeqah, stop trying to guilt trip me. It won’t work. You knew from the very start what you were getting into when we started this affair. It was a no strings attached thing,” I yelled at her and turned away.
She came to stand in front of me and poked my chest, “Then why did you tell your parents you would marry me? Why?”
I laughed, “Don’t be stupid! I just did that because I didn’t want to marry Zainab at that time. I never loved you and I never will.”
I walked out of the sitting room ignoring her pleading for me to come back and talk things through with her. I was done with her for good.
