“You are not listening to me Kunle” Martha was trying to retain her calm but he kept mumbling words that made him look like the victim, ”I am a woman that loves to have great sex,” she vented finally and time stopped.
She had been so loud and did not even know neither did she care. She was breathing heavily while staring at her husband of two years from across the table in this cozy restaurant where they had decided to meet and talk things through after been apart for more than two weeks due to a fight that ensued between the couple.
Kunle had never seen such flame in her eyes and for once he was scared of the resolve he saw; he had always been scared of her determination – Now, he was scared of losing her. He never thought something as flimsy as sex could cause this huge dispute between them. Funny thing though, she never complained.
The sudden realization that he had not been a man to his woman made his shoulders drop. It dawned on him that he misinterpreted the look on her face the first night when her eyes widened at the sight of his manhood – it was not a pleasant surprise but a disappointed stare.
“I make you moan Martha… you… you told me you came severally…” he stuttered
“I lied Kunle.” Martha’s eyes dimmed.
“Why would you? I’m your husband…”
“I’m your wife and my duty is to massage your ego…”
“I thought that I was your superman…”
“I’m sorry honey. I thought I could cope without complaining… but I can’t keep lying anymore. I love sex too. I’m no nymph but I love to have sex for several reasons including my health and relaxation benefits. There is this refreshing feeling that comes from reaching the peak with my man but… but… you don’t take me there – you never have. You’re all out in minutes and you leave me hanging and longing.”
She relaxed when she saw he wasn’t making any attempts at attacking or judging her, “I love you Kunle but I think we made a mistake by not having sex before marriage…”
“How can you think that? The church said…”
“What the church said is what got us here in the first place.”
“Help me, Martha. I can’t lose you. I really want to please you.”
