Grissel wiped her face with a fresh neatly folded paper towel and dumped it in the bin. She carried the bowl of vegetables and salad accompaniments to the dinning.


Melisa who was munching on a packet of biscuit she found in her bag after calling her aunty to inform her she might not come home that night felt her sister in law’s shadow falling on her.
‘What do you want now?’ She asked calmly this time around.
‘Dinner is ready and before you turn it down, remember you are in my house so it’s either you eat or get out before you starve yourself.’ Grissel didn’t know where all that courage from earlier and now came from.
‘I’m not hungry?’
‘Suit yourself, I just have to chew this sausage all by myself.’ She muttered and walked away.


Melisa who was backing her turned around to be sure she heard her right when she mentioned sausage but Grissel was already gone. She looked up and saw her seated at the dinning and decided to join her.
Grissel seated at the table alone kept trying Tom’s number. She hanged up for the sixth time and hissed when Melisa spoke up.
‘Was that Tom again?’ She asked pulling up a chair to sit.


Grissel nodded and tried once more without luck. Melisa could sense the frustration in her voice when she hiss and the worry written all over her face.

Melisa doesn’t know why her speech earlier had that much effect on her so she decided to join her sister in law at the table.
She picked a plate and dished out the spaghetti and sausage sauce. Then added the vegetables to it while Grissel focused on her own food which she barely touched.


‘Maybe he’s out with his friends, don’t you have their numbers.’ Melisa asked obviously worried too because Tom even as an adult back then with Julia always did call to inform them when he was running late.
She smiled and tapped her forehead as if Melisa just reminded her of something though on a normal day they both would have been at each other’s throat.

Grissel dialed Austin’s number and after the second ring there was finally an answer.
‘Is my husband there Austin?’ She asked.
‘This is your husband.’ Tom let out a heavy sigh.

Austin realizing Grissel was the one calling passed the phone to Tom earlier.
‘Tom it’s late and what happened to dinner?’ She called out.
‘OMG, forgive me Grissel. I forgot to tell you I planned on drinking with the guys tonight since it’s a Friday.’ He explained while the other guys looked on.

‘Alright, drive safely.’ She replied and was about to hang up when Tom asked her about dinner.

‘Did you manage to get dinner without me?’
‘Yes but would you mind fried egg in place of meat. We had sausage sauce this evening and I’m too tired to get that done this late.’
‘It’s okay, I will have the sausage sauce.’
‘Are you sure becau…?’

‘Grissel, it’s fine and do you think you can wait up for me?’
‘You know I’m an early bird but I will try. Just wake me up in case I slept off.’
‘Thank you.’

‘Lisa is around too.’ She said and quickly hanged up before he could ask her to drive her out of his house.
She knew Tom that well.

Melisa just shook her head and focused on her food in front of her while Grissel left to the kitchen with her plate due to loss of appetite.
Grissel picked up her plate of food.
‘You can eat all that and I have more in the kitchen in case you are not satisfied.’ Grissel knew Melisa loves food especially when its sausage sauce unlike her brother who loves fried chicken Melisa prefers anything made with sausage.


And earlier she had to choose between her husband’s favorite and her sister in law’s favorite. She smiled to herself watching Melisa eat with so much delight and then smacked her cheeks happily.
Melisa avoided her gaze and tried not to smile even though it came flashing her face.
‘I made the right choice.’ Grissel whispered silently and walked away briskly without another word as Melisa looked on.
‘Is she always this accepting?’ Melisa asked herself while chewing on the sausage.
She shook her head and focused on her food happily. ‘The fewer the merrier.’
Grissel’s footsteps back from the kitchen few minutes after drew her attention to her walking woozily upstairs. Melisa felt a cold wave run through her body. She remembered her mom was always that way even when their Dad didn’t treat her right sometimes after she had spent her whole time in the kitchen cooking his meals. Though she was that young, she had some memories locked up.


‘Is Tom not treating Grissel right or it’s the other way round. No, it’s definitely Tom because Grissel definitely would have screamed her head off when she called him earlier.’ She whispered to herself yet again.
Melisa scooped half spoon of spaghetti into her mouth and munched on it while reaching out for more vegetables from the service bowl. She had forgotten to use the fork instead of spoon.
She shook her head continuously.
‘She’s not that bad as I was led to believe.’ Melisa thought aloud.
Melisa barely spent up to an hour together in the same room with Grissel in the past. Grissel always made it a point to avoid her when she visited Tom when they were dating.
She picked up her phone dropping the spoon she was using earlier and combed through the files she had on it and hit the delete button.


‘Maybe she had good reasons for marrying my brother the way she did and a second look at her this evening confirms why aunty love her that much.’ She whispered to herself.

‘Guys let’s call it a night.’ Tom declared and everyone agreed.

They had earlier called the driver who would drop Tom home while Mike’s driver followed in order to get the guy driving Tom as well to his house after he had dropped him.
Grissel came back after about ten minutes and Melisa was done eating because she had cleared the table and washed up the plates. She dished out Tom’s food and kept it in the microwave.
Melisa who was glued to the Tv turned down the volume when Grissel came out of the kitchen to the hall.
‘The bed is already made and I left a night wear, change of clothes and towel on the bed. I’m an early bird so just call me if you need anything.’ She announced and walked away quietly.
Melisa turned the volume up when she realized Grissel had left.
