Christmas Day

Having waited the whole year for the holidays, Christmas was finally here. I woke up at eight O'clock. Fred was already up and was playing with Chloe in her room. I could hear them from the bedroom and I wished I was energetic enough to join them.

I reached to my phone which was under the pillow and switched on the mobile data. I got like fifty messages. Most of them were from friends wishing me a "Merry Christmas" while the rest was from family members. My parents had each sent me a very personal message and it was so touching. My big brother also had sent a GIF though my whatsup.

I quickly checked through my Facebook and Twitter timelines and updated myself. Slowly, I rose from the bed and went to the bathroom. I sat on the toilet seat and peed so loudly that it scared the shit out of me.

I took a shower then went back to the bedroom and dressed up. Since it was going to be a family affair, I dressed up in demin pants and a decent chiffon top. I packed like four pairs of clothes for both Fred and Chloe as we were going to spend nights at different places. 

After breakfast, we left the house at exactly eleven and drove for almost two hours to Fred's home. The drive was so scenic. There was a bit of traffic as most people were also travelling to meet with their families. 

As we packed the car in the drive way, Fred's dad came and welcomed us to the home. He was such a sweet old guy. He gave me a warm hug the carried Chloe to the house which was full already with the extended family already seated. After greetings, we were served juice by the maids in cute black and white uniforms.

As time went by and the mingling got on top gear, we were served from the huge dining room scrumptious food that was prepared by a catering team hired just for the occasion. Chloe ate very little as she was distracted by the other kids around. They played all through.

As the night fell, we were shown the bedroom where we would settle for the night. It was the same bedroom we came to after our marriage. I cannot forget how kinky we got and started having sex, too loudly, that we got scared the parents might hear us. Oh Lord! 

There was a bonfire at the back side of the house where we all went to drink. There were various selection of drinks. I went with the wine. I took a whole bottle of red wine. The men sat on the other side discussing football. The other older women sat at the other side of the bonfire. The cousins and other younger kids were dancing to music that was playing. I sat with Fred's younger sister. The sister had recently just finished her university course and was awaiting the graduation ceremony to be held in two months' time. 

I grew tired and went to the room. I took a quick shower, dressed in a t-shirt that I had brought along and sat up in bed watching Chloe sleep. I dialed my dad. He answered on the second ring shouting my name. I asked him how his day was. He had a good day as they went to his parents' home with mum and enjoyed the day with the family members. He passed the phone over to mum and we talked for a little while. I assure them that I would come over tomorrow evening and spend the day with them.

Fred walked into the bedroom holding Chloe on his left hand and came to where I was.

"How was your day?" He asked sitting on the bed.

"It was good. Just preparing to close for the year." I replied. "By the way, I was with Ann today. She said hi."

"Oh, how is she?"

"She is good. She is a bit busy with work though. She is having major issues with Mike." I responded.

"What issues?" He asked.

"There are infidelity issues." 

"Is Mike responsible?" Fred asked.

I nodded.

We did not say anything for a few minutes. It was too shocking.

"So what plans have you come with for the Christmas holiday?" He asked.

"I got an invite from my dad asking us to go home on the 26th for lunch." I said.

"You said 26th?" He asked. "Will it be on the weekend?"

"No, it will be on a Monday."

"Oh, then that's good. We will go."

"Did you have any other plans?" I asked.

"I was thinking we go somewhere but figuring there will be many people and probably booked out, we can go to my parents home on Christmas day. We can spend the night then drive over to your place."

"I am okay with it."

I went to the kitchen to warm up some milk for Chloe. I feed her but she was too sleepy to finish the bottle. She fell asleep. I carried her to her bedroom and placed her on the crib. She seemed so peaceful. She had a smile on her face. She had to be dreaming. I left her and went to the kitchen to wash the utensils. 

I went back to my bedroom and found Fred already in bed. He was on his phone. As I joined him, he switched it off and turned towards me. I asked him about his work and he seems so excited. He had managed to finish all his work before the deadline and submitted the report to his supervisor and he was impressed with it. I congratulated him and wished him the best in the future. 

He also told me that he had decided to go slow on his part time work. He will be taking only one job at a time. He was scared of messing up his work at the office. 

We were so tired that we dozed off mid conversation.
