Prof. Sema, an icon in the legal profession, was a happily married man. He was a highly revered chairman of a social club. His favorite sport was playing tennis.
One day, Prof. Sema was playing tennis with a friend when he saw two ladies also playing tennis in an adjacent court. One of the two ladies [Joy] was well known to him but the other [Peace], was not. The moment Sema saw Joy, he greatly admired her.
“She is gorgeous...smart…young…athletic!” he moaned in his soul.
Much later, Sema and Joy connected – courtesy of Peace. One thing led to another, a crash for Joy descended on Sema, which rapidly blossomed into a hot love affair.
Sema’s wife, Susan came to learn about her husband’s love affair from fellow mothers’ union members who had connections in the club. The status and the crash totally blinded the Professor from seeing the unfolding dire consequences. Joy’s beauty and her exotic love-style and Sema’s unmitigated crash evoked and invoked more envy than responsible advice from close friends who knew the imminent risks.
“I cannot tolerate these torments any longer”, Susan lamented as her husband’s escapades escalated in the club, family, church and community circles. Frantically she decided to personally verify the truth before taking drastic action.
On the fateful day, Susan drove to the Club. She went straight to the very tennis courts.
Lo and behold, Sema was playing tennis with Joy! He was dressed in an exquisite sports-ware she had never seen bought, washed or ironed at her home. This blended well with Joy’s splendid white attire with tints of red that she knew her husband greatly cherished.
There she stood and angrily watched the two ‘criminals’-in love. Had she cried or screamed, for help, that would have, probably, brought her a modicum of relief. Only dry anger, self-pity, remorse and denial took over. The duo’s well matched attire, the dexterity, speed, mien, the giggles and spirited laughter-all displayed the conspiracy to discrete her marriage.
“Better I die than live with this…”, Susan spoke to her soul and spirit. Instantly, she fell to the ground. Susan [RIP] was pronounced dead by the doctor who was called in to attend to her.
