My Housemaid – Episode 5

Recently my husband began to make Stella go against my order. Whenever I give her instruction, he will give a counter instruction or pick up a quarrel with me for giving her too much of work. Sometimes he will ask her to go and rest when she’s yet to carry out the tasks I gave her.

These were part of strategies to frustrate Stella but my husband frustrated me instead. In fact, it has grown so bad that Stella no longer fear or respect me in my own house.

My frustration metamorphosed into depression. At a time I was married but lonely. Another woman I brought to my house now enjoys my husband’s attention and company than me. Stella have no gut to disrespect me if not the backing my husband gave her.

I will dare my husband, I will return Stella to my godmother. My people say “no matter how full a river is, the fisherman must reach its bank”.

This step I’m about to sink my marriage but the best option is to get rid of Stella. I prayed, o God help me, then directed me to the story of the four lepers in 2king 7. I quickly grabbed my Bible to study. The messages were clear after reading. They had three options and all will lead to dead, instead of sitting down at the gate they took the most dangerous step.
