Bruce walked into the apartment. ..
He ignored the barking dog and ventured into the living room. ..
He came face to face with his wife..
His recently ex-wife..
“Whats the meaning of these Ada?”.
He flung the file to her ..
She picked up the file and flipped through it ..
“I believe you can read Bruce. .
So why are you asking me stupid questions…??”
“I have agreed to sign off half of my properties to you…
Giving you half of everything I own..even if you had not one hand in helping me build what I have over the years. ..
That’s not enough for you…
Now you went behind my back and decided to include my father’s company into it…claiming ownership and having the deeds of ownership forged and I signed it unknowingly.
How much did you pay him to skillfully hide that into the agreement. .?
What did you promise him??
Or you gave him your body as well??”
“I remember i vividly went through the documents and I didn’t see this there..
Now I am getting a notification telling me to vacate the company premises and hand the keys over. .”..
“This will not stand Ada. .
Am calling my lawyer.
You are not touching my father’s company. ..
Not even a dime…”…
He was fuming with anger.
She just sat there ..with a drink in her hand and her legs crossed. .
Looking at him..A smiled played at the corners of her lips..
“I didnt have to do anything honey…
You signed those papers .to me.
It wasn’t forged…
It’s your handwriting. ..
“Its not my fault you were stupid to drink something I gave you and have you sign a paper twice just because you were too drunk to realise you have already signed one…
All I had to do was distract you. ..
And gave you the one to your father’s company to sign…
It’s just like taking candy from a baby”..
She laughed wickedly..
“Please I implore you. .
Go right ahead..
Call your lawyer ..
Have it go over by the professionals. .
It wasn’t forged.
You just gave me all that you have…”…
“Everything that you own is mine…”..
He looked at her as though she was a strange creature…
She gets up and walked slowly towards him..
“Yes Bruce. ..not half…everything. .
You didnt notice the last page did you…
I believe you are still slightly hypnotised from last night. ..
You signed everything to me..”
“Now get out before I throw you out of my house….”
“You can’t be serious. ..”..
He dragged the file from her hand and flipped to the last page…
He suddenly staggered seeing she was telling the truth…
He had signed not half but all of his properties …to her.
His father’s empire he had inherited…
And all in one night…
When he thought it was his divorce papers to this witch…
He had given the devil all that he had worked for all his life ..
He suddenly felt he couldnt breath..
She stared down at him …
Trying to undo his tie
Get up and get out. ..
I have no more use for you..or I will have you thrown out..” She spat
She went back to the chair..
Crossed her legs…
Took a Sip of her wine and focused on the TV. .
Bruce wasn’t thinking straight..
What was he going to do ..
How was he going to go on..
He had met Ada a year ago …
He had fallen inlove with her ..
And barely six months layer they had gotten married and he had been as happy as the moon..
Then he had found out two months later that she was stealing from him..
Sleeping around with big men to get money..
She wasnt even satisfied that he could afford to give her the world.
But her wants was insatiable. .
And he had confronted her
She had denied it
And he then became suddenly repulsed with her presence ..
He thought she loved him.
But she loved his money..
He had tried to change her but nothing had worked..
She bad gone from bad to worse…
And the shocker was when he found out that she had been married three times already to equally rich men… and is a widow as well..
And she was just 35 years old.
It wasn’t just that that suprised him..
But the fact that…
Her first husband was 76 years old and was sick and she was completely aware abd yet she got married to him and had died barely a month later.
Her second marriage lasted a week..
And the her third marriage was less than two months…
Her game plan was to get their money from them..and she did. .
He didnt know all that at first…because she kept her private life secret…
Spoke so little about herself..
And he never liked to pry in too deep
He was a man inlove and he thought he married the woman of his dreams..only to be invited to a dinner party out of town and met his wife in bed with one of the foreign ministers …
And she had moved past him as though she didn’t know him…
He was too shocked and embarrassed to make a scene..
He decided that they were done and filed for divorce. ..
And she had threatened fire and brimstone on his head and she was going to ruin him.
He didnt believe her.
She should have. .
Now she had completely made him from something to nothing..
He cried like a little child.
What did he do to deserve this??
What was he to do?””
I watched my boss as he lamented his predicament…
He looked completely distraught ..
He had broken the news to me when he got back to the office ..
He had stormed out and now he looked like something the cat dragged in…
“She tricked me?
She drugged me..
Maybe even hypnotised me”
“She is a evil evil witch chucks..”
“She put a spell on me and made me fall inlove with her by playing the good woman..
Pretending to be something that she is not..
And I fell inlove with a gold digger..
All the while bidding her time..
And waited for the right time..
And now she has ruined me..”
“Everything I have worked for..my entire life it’s gone ”
“I am finished chucks….God “..!!
I knew how painful it was for a grown man to be crying…
Much less infront of another person. ..
I had been his PA for over 10 years…
I have known him for 15 years..
And we have sort of become friends ..
He never treated me like a normal staff.
He picked me up from the streets and gave me a purpose to live for..
Gave me a job and helped me off of my feet..
I wished there was something to do to help him..
According to the court of law .
The signatures were original..
Which meant that…there really was nothing he could do..
He pitied him.
“I need to help him”.
Chucks made up his mind…
