TWIST IN THE LOVE GAME
 
I am Stella and I have been having an issue with my husband since January last year.I suspected my husband of  cheating on me.
I created a pseudo account and called myself Lucy Adelaide.I then sent him a friendly  request on Facebook.
 
We started chatting on Facebook and it led to an online dating. All along we have been exchanging sweet words on Facebook.  It even reached a time he started sending me money for my  hairdo  and make-up.
 
At one time I told him that I had been sacked  from college for not paying my school fees  and that my father was sick. I asked him to send me Ghc 3,000 so that I could  clear my fees. He sent the money…I use my new phone and SIM card to collect the money.
 
On Easter holiday, he wanted us to meet so that we can formally know each other. I sent my friend,Martha who lives in Tema to go and meet him. When they finally met, my friend sent me pictures of their meeting. What was funny though was that he told me in the house that he would be late to the house that day.
 
What irritated my husband was  that my friend did not accept to sleep with him when they met. My
husband returned to the house angry, that evening and he didn’t eat my food.
 
Last month,I told him in the house I needed Ghc 300 to pay his
school fees.He gave me an excuse that he was not having money at that moment.How could a chief accountant said he was not having GhC 300?
 
I then decided to chat with him as Lucy ,his Girlfriend.I asked him to sent me Ghc 3,000 for my upkept.
After thirty minutes,the money landed into my account. Hmmmm. Some men are simply  wicked. 
 
Last Monday ,I chatted again with him as Lucy. He wasn’t in a good mood. He insisted we must meet again and spend the night together.I told him he must buy me an Air ticket to Singapore if he wanted to get between my thighs.He hesitated for a few minutes and said ,"Lucy,I can get you an air ticket to
but I want to TRAVEL with you."
 
I was surprise that my husband could buy an air ticket to a girl to go to Singapore all because she wanted to enjoy her. 
 
I called him back and told him to cancelled the Singapore Journey and rather book a place at GOLDEN TULIP Hotel so that we could have a good time .He was surprise at the change of plan but agreed. 
 
Curiously he asked,"what do you mean by ..have a good time?"Do you mean talking as usual?
 
"No darling,this time,It's real.it is time to play adult game.I said and he understood. 
 
So let's meet at 8.00 P.m Tommor
row ?
 
"Okay,"He said. It's a done deal. 
 
My husband was happy that day to the point of calling me "Darling "
Something he had not said for three months now.
 
That evening,I called Martha to meet him at Golden Tulib Hotel at 8.00 P.m and I made the necessary plans with Martha.
 
My husband called me and said he was busy so he won't come home early.
 
I said,"Okay darling "and laughed in my heart. 
 
I then went ahead of him and hide around Golden TULIP  Hotel around 7.30 P.m.
 
Around 8.00 I saw Martha coming to the hotel wearing a mini skirt and a tight sleeveless blouse.
  My heart thumped.The game would soon begin. I waited for another thirty minutes but my husband didn't turn up.One hour,my husband didn't turn up. I was confused. Had he entered the Hotel before I came around. Yea.That's it. Probably he was in the hotel.
 
I rushed into the hotel in a bid to catch my husband Red handed. I saw Martha waiting at the recep
instead of been in a hotel room. She started taking before I even open my mouth." Stella,Your husband didn't come here.
I checked the booking list. I have been waiting for him here for one hour but he didn't turn up.
 
I was surprise and said," What ?where is he?Did you tell him anything?
 
"No",Martha responded ."How can I?"
"I'm sorry ,Martha,I have to go home now"
 
I rushed home.Guess who I saw - My husband.He was watching TV.
 
He said,"Lucy ,you are welcome. Sorry I could not turn up at the Hotel.I didn't  finish the work at my office early.
 
I was confused my husband was calling me Lucy so I said,"my dear,are you going crazy,I am your wife Stella,not Lucy."
 
Then he started laughing. 
 
"But dear,on phone I know you to be Lucy,isn't it?"
 
It was at that point that realisation dawn on me that my husband knew all along that it was me who have been calling him as Lucy.He knew I was the one receiving all his money  but he decided to play along as if he didn't know.
 
You see Darling,I knew your voice. You can't fool me.I tried calling Lucy's line one midnight and your phone rung. You didn't turn it off as you used to after talking to me. 
 
He started laughing again. I felt embarrassed. I have been beaten at my own game.
