Story: THE TRINITY-Episode 6


The Trinity-Episode 6

Sophie was disappointed. She had thought something could have come out of her meeting with Jason. She decided not to call him back again. As it was, she had enough on her hands with Michael’s philandering.
Michael noticed the look on Sophie’s face and began taking advantage of it. He knew Sophie well, he knew her weak spots. He had always been an expert at manipulating her. He knew how to use her weaknesses to his advantage.
He came closer to her and said “Sophie, I have been waiting for a time like this to tell you how sorry I am regarding the matter with Nicky. I don’t know what came over me. It must have been the boredom, not having a job all this while, all the rejections I had faced. I promise you, I am a changed man now. Please forgive me and take me back. Let us be as we used to be.”
“Michael, for how long will you keep doing this? You completely ignored me and now you expect me to believe you? What about Amah. I know how easily you move from one lady to the other. What about her? I know you are dating her.” Sophie responded.
“Sophie, I may be guilty of many things but I am not dating Amah. I know what you have done for me what you have been through on my behalf. Let me make amends”. Michael dropped on his knees and went “Let’s work things out and get married ”
Marriage? Could he be serious? Never in the entirety of their relationship had he ever spoken of marriage to Sophie. Was he being real this time around? This move of his gave Sophie a different impression. She found herself believing him and was ready to give him a second chance.
It took Jason about 45 minutes to get home. He parked the car in the garage, handed his key and office things to the housekeeper and walked into the sitting room.
Immediately he came in, his wife jumped up from the chair, charged at him and began shouting.
“Where are you coming from at this time of the day? I called your office and was told you were not there. Where have you been?” Helena his wife shouted.
Jason didn’t answer her. He turned away and started climbing up the stairs to his bedroom. She pushed him aside rushed ahead and blocked the entrance to the room.
“Tell me where you have been before I allow you to enter into this room” She yelled at him.
“Look woman, don’t forget that this is my house” Jason said.
“It can belong to your dead father for all I care! You useless impossible man! If you think you’re gonna cheat on me and walk around freely, then you must be joking!” She said.
She was completely over-reacting. There had to be more to this matter than met the eye. It was however obvious that theirs was indeed a troubled marriage. Jason truly was an unhappy man.
At the moment, Jason looked very frustrated. He didn’t quite know what to do. He wasn’t a violent man and had never hit his wife before.
The combination of the day’s events with it’s c----x being his wife’s theatrics were proving too much for him to handle. He glared at his wife as if to push her aside. However, he turned away and walked down the steps, out of the house.
That however didn’t stop Helena from shouting at him.
“Walk away as you always do. You coward. You are always afraid to face your problems. Walk away. I will be here waiting for you” she said and went back into the house as Jason drove away.
Back at the hospital, Michael was still on his knees, sweet-talking Sophie. Suddenly, he reached into his pocket and pulled out a ring.
“I have been waiting for this moment for days now and this ring has been on me everywhere I went. Sophie will you marry me?” Michael asked.
Sophie didn’t know what to say. She was caught by surprise. She was very delighted but had some apprehension. More like a sixth sense warning her that something wasn’t right.
She decided to push it aside and take the plunge. This was what she had waited for all these years.
As she was about to stretch forth her hand and open her mouth to agree, the door suddenly burst open and a doctor and nurse came in.
The interruption startled Sophie and Michael. Michael jumped to his feet and went towards the doctor.
“Hi Doctor any news?” Michael asked.
The doctor took one look at him and one look at Sophie, he took a deep breathe and said.

“I am sorry, we tried all we could. The patient didn’t make it.”
