Four year old Annie was playing in mummy and Daddy’s room while Mummy was making dinner. She was just about to open Mummy’s closet to play dress up and wear her favorite red shoes the one with the cute little bows in front, when a bright red pack on the bed side drawer caught her attention. She was fascinated; she took it, opened it and discovered it smelled like candy, overjoyed that she had found some candy; she unwrapped it and found a rather odd looking balloon inside it, not like the ones she saw at Tiffany’s party last week. Annie put the balloon in her mouth and blew it but it didn’t get as big as she wanted it and the shape was not round, but just then she heard her Daddy calling her name, she was delighted; “Daddy is back and I will tell him to help me blow these balloons for me” she said.
Mr Nelson had just gotten home from work, “Honey I’m home” he announced,Mrs Nelson answered that she was in the kitchen. “Where is my baby, Annie, Annie girl where are you?” he called out. He ushered his colleague Mr. Ibrahim to the parlor, they needed to put final touches to their presentation the next day. Mr Nelson sat in his favorite chair just as Annie rushed into his arms screaming “Daddy welcome”; he hugged her and asked how she was doing when he saw a blown condom and the remaining pack in her hand. He quickly grabbed them from her and shoved them in his pocket before Mr Ibrahim saw them; Annie was about to protest but Mrs Nelson calling out that dinner was ready distracted her. As they sat at the dining table having dinner, Mr Nelson thought to himself; “Phew, that was close, If Mr Ibrahim had seen the condoms in Annie’s hands, I would become the brunt of office jokes and gossips”.
That weekend Mrs Nelson was sorting out the laundry and checking pockets for any left behinds, she was usually lucky to find cash forgotten in her husband’s pocket which always went unreported so she was expecting to find money,only this time she did not, she found condoms. She could not believe it, she called her Mother and sister and told them that her husband was cheating on her,she said she never believed all his stories about working late and she had proof now that he was lying. Whilst her sister encouraged her to leave him her Mother told her to talk to him first but she had decided, she would not remain married to a liar.
