“What!!” asked Helena “Who the hell is Sophie, Jason?
Jason couldn’t believe himself. He didn’t realize how deeply he had come to like Sophie. How could it be that he would utter her name at such a crucial time?

This was all so complicated. Just when he and his wife were getting back together he thought to himself. How would he get his wife to believe that there was nothing between him and Sophie or any other woman for that matter? It would just seem to confirm her suspicions that he had been cheating on her. Waooo, this was all so complicate now!
Helena jumped off immediately completely turned off from the passion. She wore her nighty and turned to him
“Jason, answer me please? Who is Sophie? She asked him again.
“Sorry dear, I am really sorry, it shouldn’t have come out like that. Trust me I am not cheating on you if that’s what you’re thinking” Jason tried explaining.
To Jason’s surprise, Helena was acting rather calm over this issue. That was quite unusual of her. By now she would have been screaming, shouting and yelling at him. She would even have either thrown him out of the house or dramatically moved out of the house herself.
There was something different about tonight. He couldn’t put his finger on it but Helena was behaving like a changed woman. She appeared quite concerned about the abrupt utterance. Jason felt she was really hurt and kept apologizing.
“I am not accusing you of cheating Jason, I know I have been distant lately. This “Sophie” must have become very special to you for you to mention her name” Helena said
Her statement softened Jason. He felt a need to come clean and honest over the whole Sophie matter.
“Let me be honest with you, Sophie is a special person like you rightly said but there is nothing going on between the two of us. I met her not long ago at the height of when we were having our issues. She listened to me and encouraged me to make it up with you. She is the key reason I came back home. I didn’t know she could have entered that deep in my subconscious to the point that I would mention her name at such a time as that. I am really sorry. I know how this feels, but I’m truly sorry,” Jason pleaded.
Helena took Jason by his hand. She then kissed his hand and looked into his eyes.
“I understand. it’s entirely my fault. I pushed you away and I am really sorry about that too.” said Helena.
“Come on, let’s get over this. Come to bed” She continued.
Was this a miracle or what? What was happening? Jason found it difficult to take it all in, considering that they were virtually at each other’s throats just a few days back. He jumped back into bed and decided to ride out his luck. There truly must be a God out there who listens to prayers.

Michael didn’t go to Sophie’s house that night. He wanted to keep his distance after his early morning confrontation and discussion with Joe. He valued his job much more than Sophie. Besides, he had Amah’s threats on his mind.
He went straight to his apartment and locked the door behind him. He already had gone through two encounters of unlocked doors and didn’t want to have a third.
Michael was battling it out in his mind whether Amah was going to be discreet about what happened at the hotel after all the money he had given to her. He knew he needed to do something to keep her mouth shut.
Sophie was still awake waiting for Michael to show up so she could go to sleep. After waiting for long she picked up the phone and gave him a call.
Sophie: “Michael where are you, it is getting late?
Michael: “Sorry I didn’t tell you, I can’t make it tonight, there is something you need to know. I will tell you in the morning”
Sophie: “It’s about Joe right?
He mumbled something and quickly ended the call.
A text message from an unknown number had come through while he was still on the phone with Sophie. As soon as he finished the call, opened and read the text message which went:
“I KNOW WHAT YOU DID TO NICKY. I WON’T LET IT HAPPEN TO SOPHIE”
Michael got so frightened and shaken up that he almost threw the phone on the floor.

Early the next morning, Jason’s house was awesomely peaceful and tranquil. Helena had gotten Breakfast ready for the family and they all sat together at the dining table to eat their breakfast as a family.
For a moment, everything was normal. Jason had smiles on his face throughout that morning as he spent time enjoying time with his family.
Suddenly the bell rang.
Jason looked at his time. Usually the only person to ring the bell at this time would be their driver who would usually appear to take his son Ismael to school. This was however a bit too early for the driver.
Jason put Ishmael’s backpack on him, and together with Helena, walked their son to the gate to meet the driver.
On getting to the gate, Jason was surprised to see a pleasant looking fine lady at his door. The driver was nowhere in sight. Helena’s breath however caught in her throat as she saw Amah standing at her gate looking as innocent as someone who wouldn’t hurt a fly.
