Peace of Mind
Quotopic_325.png

(A man and his wife are sited in their living room. They are exchanging words.)

Husband
When your cup is full, I will throw you back to where I picked you from. A woman without sense.

Wife
What else do you want from me? I cook for you on time, I keep the house, I care for the kids, I serve your bed. What else?

Husband
Peace of mind. Give me peace of mind. You do all those things but you are ever full of troubles, making trouble with friends, family, neighbors and even me. On little things, you catch fire like a dry forest. You don't accept sorry until you have unleashed the rage in you. Give me peace of mind.

Wife
I think you are just calling for trouble with those things you are saying.

Husband
You want to start your trouble abi? May be today is the day I will cast you out like the unwanted. You won't kill me.

Wife.
Cast me out nah, cast me out( her voice went down) In fact I am even going, cast me out.(She goes inside)

Husband
These women don't know it is more than food and bed room matters. Giving your husband peace of mind is priceless. Foolish woman, she wants to go and pack her things. Pack your things and go now.

Wife
I am not going anywhere. (She says as she comes out of her room.)

Husband
Then give me peace of mind.

Wife
I will try but tell them or let me say warn them, they should not look for my trouble.

Husband
Even when they look for it refuse to give it.

Wife
And even you. (She moves close to his side, sit down, seeking favour)

Husband
When I look for your trouble don't give me.

Wife
And every other things?

Husband
Just the troubles.
