MEN WHY WE HATE THEM : Episode 2

Specimen 1 is my dad; he’s been married to my mum for over 38 years. They met each other in college and have been inseparable since. Their marriage was the kind that every young couple aspired to have when they became old. My dad always treated Mum like she was the only woman in the world; you could tell she was the queen of his heart. I always prayed to have a husband just like him until three years ago when I found out he’d been cheating on my mum for the past ten years. Mum had tried her best to hide it from us so we wouldn’t disrespect him, but recently, they’ve had some volatile arguments.

The day Dad didn’t spend the night at home was when I realised things had gotten bad and decided to sit Mum down for a heart-to-heart talk; being the only girl, Mum and I were close, but before then, we’d never really talked about her and Dad. For the first time in my life, I saw my mum sobbing as she opened up to me.The problems in their marriage started after Dad started making a lot of money from the business a friend introduced him to about ten years earlier. We had all been so happy when the business became successful because our lives changed for the better. We moved to a beautiful house on the island, and Dad got new cars for each of us; even my eldest brother, who now lives alone, wasn’t exempted from the car bonanza.

Mum confessed that she still holds herself back from cursing the day Dad started his new business until today because that was when their marriage began to sour. It started from him becoming friends with business moguls that hung out at bars almost every night to getting more attention from women, especially younger ones he didn’t know how to handle. Eventually, he fell into temptation and hasn’t looked back since then. His wife of many years, who helped him grow from grass to grace, was no longer beautiful and sexy enough in his eyes. He had forgotten how she stood by him when he suffered from osteoarthritis and how she encouraged and stayed with him during his hospitalisation for joint replacement surgery.

I’m sure you’re probably wondering what the big deal is about osteoarthritis. It is a long-term condition that affects the joints and makes them stiff, painful, and sometimes swollen. It is usually caused by wear and tear damage in the joint cartilages and is more common among older individuals. Joint replacement surgery is recommended sometimes when the condition worsens.Although my dad had been nothing but a darling when it came to me, I couldn’t help but detest him for how he made Mum feel. Mum’s confession has prompted me to dig deeper into why a man who loved his wife would suddenly change his attitude towards her. How is it possible that a man who never cheated on his wife once in their marriage suddenly begins to change women like his clothes 20 years later? I guess we’ll find out together as the story continues.

For now, let’s move to specimen 2. My eldest brother Steven, the opposite of my dad, doesn’t have time for women and sees them as a distraction. Steven is a very handsome young man, the tall sexy guy with the six-pack and muscular arms that every woman wants to date. So many girls literally worship the ground he walks on, and they begin to melt at the sound of his deep sexy voice. He might be my brother, but this is not hype. It’s a fact! I’ve witnessed it first-hand.

So many girls have even tried to be friends with me so that I could put in a good word for them; sometimes, I even receive a few random gifts that I collect with joy since I consider them harmless.

Steven stays unmoved by any of their advances. He’s not even thinking of settling down anytime soon. The only thing he cares about is his business. That’s his first love. His company has been his sole focus for five years. The good news is that the company is doing quite well.He moved into his apartment about a year after starting the company, and ever since then, we hardly see him at home. However, I always try to visit him once a week so I can cook some decent meals for him since he doesn’t allow any other woman to do that. What can I say? I’m his only sister, so I guess it’s my duty.

One day, I was at his place for my usual cooking ritual when the doorbell rang. I was busy in the kitchen, so he went to get the door himself. You wouldn’t believe it was his Personal Assistant that had come over to seduce him. It was a massive shock because Steven never shared personal details like his home address with any of his staff members. It was a policy he adhered to strictly. His PA had somehow managed to steal his details since she was the staff member that worked closest to him and had decided to pay him a “friendly” visit thinking he’d be much less rigid outside the office. Unfortunately for her, she was very wrong. In fact, I think she made the biggest mistake of her career in his organisation with that move.

I was still busy stirring the soup I was making when I heard Steven shouting, “What the hell are you doing in my house? How did you find this place?”

His shouting was followed immediately by a female voice, “Calm down, I just came to check on you. I won’t be long.” Her explanations seemed to fall on deaf ears as Steven continued shouting, “Who gave you the right to come to my house?” I was still waiting to hear her response when I saw a slim lady wearing denim bum shorts and a top with a low neckline run into the house. I have no idea how she could get past Steven, but the next thing I know, she was getting naked as Steven ran into the house after her. You could tell he was shocked at what was going on. Ladies and gentlemen, the hustle is real!

I honestly don’t know what she was hoping to achieve from her actions, but my babe was going for the kill. She was so bent on her mission that she didn’t even notice another woman in Steven’s kitchen already preparing food for him. That is how all these girls go about breaking up homes to chase a man. If I wasn’t his sister, I might have started to think she was one of his girlfriends or something. To cut a long story short, getting her out that day was not easy. When she finally noticed me, she wanted to start a physical fight, thinking I was the competition. Even if I were to pity her and plead her case before Steven, she messed it up. I don’t want that kind of thug as an in-law.

I don’t need to tell you that she was sacked on the spot after we finally got her out. The security guard also got the scolding of his life for letting her in without confirmation. That’s just one of the many scenes I’ve witnessed where girls go all out to get him. He’s even told me of times when ladies tried to seduce him in his office while he was conducting job interviews with them. Believe it or not, my brother has never fallen into temptation once. Yet he has the same hormones that all these other men claim make them cheat.

That’s why I’ve decided to make him one of my specimens. I need to find out what makes him able to resist all the female advances that other men find so difficult to resist—and before you jump into any conclusions, he’s not gay! I’m sure you’re probably thinking you’ve heard it all; this is just the beginning, though; wait till you hear about specimens 3 and 4.
