DEAR AUNTIE ABENA,
Please good evening. Post this for me because I don’t know where I went wrong after my boss’s wife beat me up.
I’m 26 and a single mother. One Saturday, around mid-afternoon, I was in my room when I heard a knock on my door. I went to check to see who and before I could say “Jack” 3 women started beating me for no reason that I knew of. Most of my braided hair got torn from bruises.
Fortunately for me, my elder sister was coming on a visit and met the scene. They nearly turned the fight on her. One of the women who identified herself as my boss’s wife, warned me to stay away from her husband. My sister took me to hospital for treatment and with her no nonsense attitude made a case at the police station. I stayed at the hospital for 3 days before being discharged.
I was home when my boss himself came over with 2 executives from the company to apologise and ask for out of court settlement. He told me that his wife had already been arrested. He paid my hospital bills and compensated me very well.
The issue was closed some months ago but just a few days ago, the wife came to my house again. This time to beg me to help her save her marriage because the husband is divorcing her, how? It was then she told me a colleague at my work place told her to be careful of me and my son because of the way her husband was so much attached to my boy.
Sister Abena, the truth of the matter is my 4 year old boy is fun to be with. My boss always prays he’ll be blessed with a son like mine as he and his wife have been seeking for the fruit of the womb for some years now. That’s all. We have nothing between us.
I discussed this with my elder sister but she advised I should stay out of their issue. When I told the woman I can’t be of help to her, she got angry that I’m happy her marriage is ending because of me and a whole lot. Please did I do something wrong? How do I stay out of this or should I intervene? What’s the best way to go about it?
