My name is Bukola, a 38-year-old married woman with three children but I am sure if I want to continue with this marriage after catching my husband red handed sleeping with my teenage daughter.
Before I got married to Tunde, he knew I had a child out of wedlock and he accepted her, promising to treat her as his own and we have been living in peace till the day I bumped into him having sex with the same girl who has called him daddy all her life.
My daughter is just 17 and has been growing faster than her age, often scaring me with the attention she gets from men in our area. In fact, Tunde has had to warn off several young men and even older men who have been disturbing her.
How was I to know that he was doing that because he also had interest in my daughter, his daughter?
I have tried my best to be a good mother but little did I know that my young daughter was not as innocent as I thought. Though I tried to monitor her as best as I could, I knew she had some male friends though she kept them away from me.
It was an aunt who came visiting some months ago that first warned me that she did not find Tunde’s closeness to my daughter funny, saying they did not act like a father and daughter, especially when I was not around.
My aunt further hinted that she suspected there was something sinister going on behind my back, stating that she had seen Tunde sneak into my daughter’s room at odd hours. I did not take Aunt Abike serious and told her the two had always been close since my daughter was a child.
But the cloak of deceit was to be lifted off my eyes two months later when I caught them red handed having sex.
The day of reckoning started like every other day for me as I left for work as early as I usually did but around 10 am, I had this piercing stomach upset and had to rush to the hospital. The doctor told me I had the beginning of dysentery and should go home, take some drugs and rest.
I called Tunde to inform him about the situation but his phone was switched off, so I had to take a taxi home. I was surprised when I saw his car in the compound when I got back. I guessed he must have come home for something.
I had earlier sent my daughter to the market, so when I went inside and did not see her, I thought she had gone to buy the foodstuff I had instructed her to.
I went to our bedroom and when I did not find Tunde there, I went to the kitchen, thinking he would be there but he was not. Instinctively, I made for my daughter’s room. On opening the door, I was almost thrown back by the force of what I saw.
There was my husband naked and in his full glory, humping on my equally naked daughter who was apparently enjoying the sexual intercourse. It was glaring that Tunde did not rape her because she was equally responding to his thrusts.
I must have frozen on the spot for close to a minute and they did not know they had company. It was my screams that brought them back to earth and before I passed out, I saw them scramble apart.
I came out of coma at the hospital and that was when the reality hit me that I had caught my husband and daughter having sex.
All this happened two months ago and since then, I have not gone back to the house neither do I want anything to do with my husband and daughter.
Tunde has been sending emissaries to beg me to forgive him and even my family members have been imploring on me to forgive him but how on earth can I live with the two of them again, with the picture still playing in my head?
Dear readers, Bukola is in great pains at the moment and needs your words of advice. On True Confession today, what do you think she should do in this situation?
