Boma flung open the door to her one room apartment. There on the bed was her beloved Jide, kneeling between the thighs of another woman, gloriously unclad.
Boma inhaled hard, trying to contain the pool of tears that had escaped her lacrimal gland – the air in the room smelled of panic, guilt and intense fornication.
“I can explain!” Jide exclaimed.
Lying bastard!
“Explain to God,” Boma yelled as she reached for the knife on the shelf beside her. She plunged the knife deep into her own chest, freeing herself of Jide’s recurrent emotional abuse.
“Boma, no!” her younger sister cried.
