“Don’t worry my love. I know exactly what I’m doing. Trust me, I know what I’m doing.” She said.

Davina Diaries Fiction: Cords That Bind – Final Episode 

Two months down the line, everything was as normal as it should be. Bertha and William were getting to love each other more and more. Freda on the other hand just started schooling and was really doing well in her studies.

Bertha was now alone at home. Somehow she missed the presence of her friend Sandra. Gone were the days when they would sit, talk and make fun out of everything.

Notwithstanding, she still remembered what Sandra had done to her and her family, how she almost came between her husband and herself. Her marriage would have collapsed if she hadn’t taken matters into her own hands.

She decided to make a quick call to Sandra.

“Hello, look who is calling!” Sandra said when she answered the call.

“How are you doing?” Bertha asked.

“Well, I am fine as always” She said.

“Sandra, hmm… there is something I want us to discuss.” Bertha said.

“What we talked about the other time, I think I want to reconsider” Bertha continued.

“You don’t mean it. I can see William has gotten you very upset? Anyway, come over so we  can talk more about it, this is not something we should be discussing on phone.” Sandra said.

“Yeah you are right, Can I come over now?” Bertha asked.

“Yeah baby girl, I’m home” Sandra answered.

Bertha immediately dressed up and arrived at Sandra’s in no time.

“Wow, that was fast. Tell me, what’s really going on” Sandra asked.

“Look, I just want to do it, I’m not happy with William anymore.” She said.

“Are you sure of what you are saying? Maybe you should think this through” Sandra asked.

“Are you helping me out or not? Bertha asked looking very desperate.

“Well, before I do, there is something you should know. I wanted to tell you but because of your attitude, I had to hold back.”  Sandra said.

“What is it Sandra?” Bertha asked.

“Do you know your husband actually proposed to me?” Sandra said.

That was more than enough for Bertha to take in, she wasn’t ready to listen to any more surprising news from Sandra.

“It’s ok, don’t go any further. Just help me out” Bertha said.

Sandra reached into her purse and took out the complementary card of a wealthy business man from the U.S who relocated to Ghana.

“Take this card and call him before sun sets. I’d have arranged everything by then. And guess what…” Sandra asked.

“What is it?” Bertha asked.

“He is really good in bed. I bet William is no match for him” Sandra said.

“Why are you talking as if you have already slept with him?” Bertha curiously asked.

She ignored Bertha’s question and gave her the complementary card. They sat together for a while and talked about old times until Bertha decided to leave.

Just about an hour after Bertha left, Sandra left for William’s office. William actually called her the night before to come by his office. All along she was impatiently waiting for Bertha to leave so she could go see what William had to say to her.

She met William at the office and he was busy working on his computer as usual.

“You are late” William said as soon as Sandra sat down.

“I’m really sorry my dear, your wife came by this morning.” She said.

“My wife, for what reason?” William asked.

“I really don’t know why people find it difficult to believe me. I told you your wife was cheating on you and doubted me. She came to my place in that regard you know” She said.

“I’m really sorry Sandra, that is why I called you here in the first place. But you have said enough. I have already heard what I wanted to”  William said.

“Excuse me, I don’t understand you.” Sandra said.

“I don’t understand you, how can you be this wicked to your own friend? Why are you snitching on your friend?” William said.

“What do you mean? I’m the one trying to help you here.” She said.

“Help me?” William asked.

“Honey, you can come out now.” William called out to his wife, who was in the washroom listening to their conversation.  She came out with a recorder in her hands and almost immediately started playing the conversation she had with Sandra when she went to her place earlier.

Sandra began to shake and sweat as she realized she had been caught. It was all a plan. A plan to expose who Sandra really was. A snitch and a malicious home breaker!

“I hope you have a good explanation for this?” Bertha asked.

“Please I can explain, I ….i… don’t even know what came over me. It’s all the work of the devil, I wanted to be happy like you Bertha, to have a husband I can also call my own. William is a good person and I felt I could make him mine. Please, I’m sorry. Please” She begged.

William just stood there watching her. Next thing they knew, Sandra ran out of the office leaving behind her phone and handbag. That was the last time they set eyes on her.

They heard later that she had relocated to Togo and was trying to start a new life there.

“Baby, I’m really sorry I had to make you go through all these, I didn’t know she was that wicked.” Bertha said.

“It’s ok my love. Do you remember what the pastor said during at our wedding? He said, marriage is like a cord binding us together.

“The more we love and respect each other, the stronger the cord binds us but when we allow ourselves and our marriage to be controlled by others, the bond weakens and the cord eventually breaks.

“I really love you my wife and I thank God for choosing you for me.” William said.

“I love you too William. Talking about our wedding day, I have something to tell you” She said.

“What is it, I’m all ears…” William said.

“Ok, how do I even start? I think you should get ready to be yelling more often because very soon, you are going to be a father!” She announced.

“What?! Oh my God! Tell me this is not a joke.” William asked, he couldn’t believe his ears.

“William, It is no joke. I am five weeks pregnant. I had been feeling funny for some time but I wanted to be very sure before taking a test. I din’t want to jinx it.” She confirmed.

It was a joyful moment for William and his wife. This was what they had always dreamt of.

God has finally blessing them with a child of their own.

Freda continued to remain in their care and they treated her just like their own.

Eight months down the line, Bertha delivered a bouncing baby boy who looked very much like his father William.
