Two days later, both couples met in Mr. Kim’s house.
They had a very long conversations, Bill wasn’t so shocked upon hearing the rest of the story he never knew of.
To Mina, everything was like a movie show. She taught it was dream, she was in dismay, she couldn’t hold herself but burst into cry.
Bill played the man role by trying to accommodate whatever was going on and helped to calm Mina down.
After the conversations, no secrets were left and both innocent spouses(Bill and Mina) were asked by Mr. Kim to say what they got and what they ought to do.
Bill: I am very shocked at everything that happened but the other side where Louis and Bella ain’t aware of is another worry to me. All the same, I promised to build one home and keep it till the end, but I’ll need some time to say my final words.
Mina: Dad, I don’t have anything to say. But knowing Louis, I know very well that if he knew he had a child who’s whereabouts he was aware of, it wouldn’t have been hidden to me. But what I’m finding difficult to forgive him is what he did with Bella without my notice. I found in his wardrobe a visa that was meant for the two to go spend holidays in South Africa. Bill here has Louis’s Voter’s ID card with him. I am very much aware of all that they have been doing. But I can’t loose my husband for anyone. I love Louis and I want us to maintain our home. The boy should be brought to me, I’ll take care of him, the unborn one should come I’ll take them all. I love my husband and can’t let him go.
Mr. Kim: Well, Mina u have been my worry all this while, but u have relieved me from trauma a little. U are a lady so I was contemplating on how u are going to take this whole scenario, I’m very happy u made a decision to keep your home. Let’s give Bill sometime to tell us his mind, probably some days.
They all agreed as such and the meeting ended.
Days after, Bella woke Bill from sleep so depressed and worried. She apologized for everything and confessed she didn’t live him from the onset, but for how he has stayed around her upon all she has done, she is not going to loose him for any man. She pleaded with Bill to pardon her so they restore happiness at home.
Bill told her to sleep so they talk in the morning. In the morning Bill woke and prepared breakfast in bed for Bella. She was shocked.
Bella: Bill, it’s been decades u treated me this way.
Bill : I miss these moments too my dear, I’ve let go of everything. I don’t mind taking care of that child when it comes. Let’s maintain our home and make sure we don’t commit same mistakes anymore.
Bella smiles as tears roll down her cheeks. She grabbed Bill and they kissed for some minutes. They sat to take their breakfast like newly married couples in joy and happiness.
Mina and Louis also reconciled at home and we’re perfectly cool.
Bill called Mr. Kim that evening and told him to worry no more for he has solved everything with his wife and they are happily living. The news got to Mad. Akorkor and she was overwhelmed with joy.
Mr. Kim then called both sides on phone advised them as a father.
Both couples became friends and planned a get together dinner to take effect after the lockdown.
There are three major lessons in the story above: 1. Tolerance, 2. Forgiveness, 3. Love.
*We need the above in our daily lives to overcome complicated issues that baffles our minds.*
So this is the end of the long story. Kindly tell me what you would have done if you were Bill and Mina. Thank you for following till the end.
