THE MAID – Episode 2

“Honey, do you think this idea of bringing in a maid is right?” David asked Angela who was already sad that her husband refused to grant her request.

“Yes, I don’t see anything wrong with that. let’s just bring a maid. “What do we need a maid for?” David asked. He too was not happy. “So I can fully concentrate on my business. The new maid will be doing the cooking and keeping the home clean. Please my dear” Angela pleaded. Because David never wanted to see her sad, he gave her the go ahead. Angela became happy again but she never knew she was calling for trouble.
“Angela my daughter. You are looking so beautiful” It was Mrs. Uwa, her mother. Angela smiled as she sat on the sofa. “Mum, everyone knows too well that I am not more beautiful than you are. I am only but your photocopy and Dad’s carbon copy.

So the both of you are the real beauty” She gesticulated. Her mother need no soothsayer to tell her that her beloved daughter was living in harmony with David, her husband. Angela had actually visited her parents in order to tell them about her plan of getting a maid, so her mother could help her look for one. “My daughter. I don’t support this” her mother cuts in. “Why Mum?”Angela just couldn’t see any reason why her mother should stand against this. “David your husband, I believe loves you so much and will do almost anything for you.

If you are finding the house chores hard, discuss it with him and see if he will prefer a better solution. The greatest mistake you will make in your marriage is giving another women the opportunity to take care of your husband for you…..” “Mum but I am not bringing in a maid to take care of my husband for me” Angela interrupted her mother. “Your mother is right Angela. Bringing in a maid in your matrimonial home to do the ‘cookings’ and wash your husbands clothes almost means the same thing as leaving your husband under her care”. Her father spoke this time. Angela became confused. There may be sense in what her parents were saying but her instincts told her that her husband can never prefer a maid over her. Not when their love for each other is still there.
