You may not believe it, but he caught me red handed!
I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw him. I stood speechless not knowing what to do next. It was true that he didn’t miss his target!
What will I tell him? How will I explain it? A lot of rhetorical questions crisscrossed my mind. Will he ever trust me again?
He had been saying it time and again, but I always denied. Now I had to plead with him for forgiveness.
Mostly he comes home drunk after saying that he doesn’t have money to support the family. Where did he get the money to buy alcohol?
This made me to sneak to his coat pocket or wallet and took some money from there. I had been doing it for some months without him noticing. Incase he did, I always defended by accusing him of visiting bars and that could be where he was losing his cash.
Sometimes he couldn’t ask because it meant that he had some money yet he couldn’t support the family and that couldn’t end well with him. He had been an irresponsible father.
There is this evening when he arrived home totally drunk. He went straight to bedroom and put his wallet carelessly. I thought this was a good chance to do my normal routine. After making sure he was snoring, I took his wallet and took some money.
Before I could make a move, he jumped out of the bed and gave me a king size slap that made me dizzy for some minutes. For all this time, he had been pretending to be drunk. Little did I know that it was a trap.
Having been caught red-handed, I had little or nothing to say. ……..this was a story from one of the ladies in our neighborhood.
