Dave and Clara have been married 4 over nine years without children. They stayed with each other and hoped that they will
have a child before their 10th year of marriage because they were being
persuaded by family and some friends to get a divorce but they couldn't let go because of the love between them.

Months and while Dave was returning from work one day, he saw his wife walking down the road with a man and they looked happy.
Another evening, while Dave was coming back from work, he saw the same man dropped her off at the house.
Dave became angry and sad. Two days
later, after a hectic day at work, Dave was taking water with a glass jug when the phone rang. He picked it up and the person said ‘hello dear, I'll be coming to your house this evening to see you as
promised. I hope ............ "
and Dave hung up the phone. It was a male voice. He was sure the person was the man he had seen with his wife. He
suddenly became shaky with this thought, ‘’have I lost my wife to another man?’’
At that point, the glass jug fell from his
hand and shattered into pieces.

Then Clara came running into the room asking, ‘’Is everything okay?’’ In anger he gave his wife a push and she fell. She wasn't moving or getting up.

Dave then realised that she fell where he broke the glass jug and a large piece of glass has pierced her. He felt her breath, pulse and heartbeat but there she laid lifeless. His wife was dead. In total
confusion, he saw an envelope in her hand. He took it, opened it and was
shocked by its content. It was a letter and it reads:

‘’ My loving husband, words cannot express how I feel, so i had to write it down. I have been going to see a doctor for over a week and wanted to be sure before I give you the news. The doctor
confirmed it that I am pregnant with twins and our babies are due in 7 months from now. The doctor also happen to be my long lost brother whom I lost contact with
after our marriage. He has promised to take care of me and our babies and
give us the best without collecting a dime. He also promised to have dinner
with us today. Thanks to you for standing by me...... your loving wife".

As the letter fell from Dave’s hand, there was a knock at the door and it was the same man he had seen with his wife... and
he said ......’’ hello Dave, I suppose am right, am Max, your wife's brother.....’’
And suddenly he noticed his sister in the
pool of her blood .... he rushed her to his hospital but it was too late, his sister, Dave’s wife was gone and so were the


In our relationships, which include our
marriage, we should not be too quick in reacting when we haven't questioned our partner or spouse on what we saw or heard about them. Communication, Trust and Patience are rare gifts we can bring to our relationship.
Not everything we see or hear or believe is right about them. And to every man or woman, i pray that patience will have her
perfect stay in you that you may be perfect and wanting nothing because patience is that great virtue you need
to keep your relationship.
