The Other Woman
“Who was that girl?” I asked
“That’s that girl”
“The girl I told you about. Her friends are always calling me to say she really likes me and has a crush on me. Her name is Anita.”
“So that’s the Anita girl they say you are dating.”
“I’m not dating her. How can I date someone that is always saying ‘can I come and see you? I’ll bring my friend that you think is cute’?”
“I accepted Maje’s explanation and concluded that Anita was not important . So I’ll be with Maje and she’d call and I’d tell him,
“The girl that has a crush on you is calling.” And it would be nothing.”
In chapter 8 ‘On Becoming’ titled ‘Hurt’. Toke wrote about Maje returning from a trip and infecting her with an STI.
And she said
“He had given me an STI in the past. He’d returned from a trip once and we had sex, and a few days later I was itching.
‘I went to the doctors and they prescribed medication, but when I asked Maje about the infection he denied knowing anything about it. I went through hisPHONE and saw a conversation with Anita where she complained that she had been itching.”
According to her, it was not news to Maje, more like an update that she was giving him on a situation that he already knew about.
“He asked what the doctor’s report said and what was prescribed. I knew I would be putting myself at risk if I closed my eyes to whatever he chose to do on the side. So I went back to putting all my attention into my work.”
