Betty, the new girl at the office, made quite the stir on her first day at work. Everyone was mesmerized by her good looks but it was her personality that left a lasting impression. Abu was especially taken by the new girl and went out of his way to make her feel welcome in the office. She seemed impressed by the gesture and the two became bosom friends. The only problem was Abu was married with kids. Read the full story here Office Drama – I’m Falling In Love With My Coworker But I Have A Wife And Kids Part 1
Betty arrived at the office earlier than usual. I had been on high alert and any unusual behaviour made my mind race. This was no exception. I wondered if she wanted to confront me about my marriage since she knew that I was always the first person in the office.
“Good morning.” I greeted her trying to assess the situation.
“Good morning? Come and hug me.” She answered as bubbly as ever.
I let out an audible sigh and then went in for a hug. We embraced for a while before letting go. I instantly felt relaxed and my mood went up.
“You’re early,” I commented.
“Yes, I’m going for my leave soon so I want to clear up things in the office.”
I almost forgot how long she had been at the office. Almost 8 months. Each time I see her, it feels like I’m seeing her for the first time. I never get tired of admiring her and I learn something new about her every day.
“Oh no. The office is going to be boring without you.”
“I’ll be back soon but you can visit me anytime you want.”
I had been to her house twice. The first time was during her birthday and the second time she invited me for a movie. I didn’t sleep over but that wasn’t my plan. I wanted to know if she was truly single or if we were both playing with each other. After the second visit, I confirmed it. It was during her birthday and though there were a lot of men present, none of them made a move on Betty.
“I’ll definitely come over.”
She smiled and then went to her desk to get some work done.
I knew the invitation was my opportunity to finally make her mine. She had been giving me signals and I felt ready to go for it. The only problem was I was married with kids and I felt bad lying to Betty and betraying my wife. I had to make a hard decision of whether to come clean to Betty or to break things off.
As people came into the office, they noticed that Betty was already there. Normally, she would be among the last ones to arrive.
“Congrats, girl.” Her desk mate said jokingly.
They both laughed and she immediately went back to work as her desk mate unpacked her bags and settled in.
By the end of the day, everyone knew that she was going on leave on Friday which made it hard for me to ask her out on that day. So, I asked her desk mate to invite her out on Friday and then make an excuse to leave. Her deskmate, Stella, was the only person I fully trusted in the office. We joined the company the same day, five years ago and I have seen her grow from a girl into a woman.
“Okay, Sam. I’ll do it for you but you have to be careful. People are starting to talk in the office and sooner or later she will find out about your wife.”
“I know. I’ll tell her. I don’t like keeping things from her.”
“I’m only doing this because I know she genuinely likes you.”
Coming clean was harder than I thought. Every time I tried, my throat went dry and I couldn’t get my words out. Additionally, we were having such a good time and I didn’t want to ruin the moment. So, I decided to keep my secret for one more day.
One drink led to another and I found myself in Betty’s apartment. I knew exactly what was going to happen but I was getting cold feet. I don’t know whether it was the whiskey or the guilt that was killing my mood but I couldn’t get turned on despite Betty’s efforts to seduce me.
“What’s wrong?” She asked after trying repeatedly to make a move.
“Nothing. I just have a lot on my mind.”
“Like what? I’m all ears. Let it all out.” She said sweetly.
I managed to smile but I wasn’t happy.
“I don’t think you want to know my problems.”
“Why would you think that? Have I not made it obvious that I have feelings for you.”
This was the first time I heard it from her though I had known for months now. It was one of the best things that had ever happened to me yet I couldn’t enjoy the moment.
“I have to tell you something.” I started.
She moved closer to the point that her thigh was partially on my lap.
“Can it wait? I really want to go to the bedroom.” She said seductively.
I tried to resist but I couldn’t. We slept together that night and I spent the whole weekend with her. However, I still couldn’t tell her about my marriage.
When I got to the office on Monday, everyone was waiting eagerly to know how the weekend went.
“We heard you went out with Betty.”
I was stunned that they knew since I thought Stella was a loyal friend.
“Yeah. I went home after that, though.”
“Lies. We saw her WhatsApp stories. Breakfast for two, eh? We see you, Sam.” One of my colleagues said but I knew most of them weren’t happy for me.
It was only a matter of time before someone told Betty that I was married so I went the coward’s way and texted her.
“I know I should do this over a text but I think you should know I’m married. I have a wife and kids.” The text read.
A few minutes passed and I got a call from her.
“Hello,” I said trying to sound as casual as possible.
“Please tell me this is a joke.”
I could hear her sobbing and it broke my heart.
“I’m sorry I didn’t tell you before. I just didn’t know how to.”
“So you do it right after we sleep together? I have feelings for you, Sam. Real feelings.”
“I have feelings for you too, Betty. I’ll fix it.”
“My wife is in the village. She doesn’t know anything about us and she doesn’t have to know.”
“I hope you’re not suggesting that I become your second wife because I’ll slap the nonsense out of you.” Her Luo accent made the threat sound more aggressive.
“No, but we could start somewhere.”
When she came back to the office, she didn’t even look at me let alone speak to me. It didn’t take long for Betty to resign after she came back. In fact, she was gone within a month. That was the end of my short affair with the most beautiful woman I had ever met.
