New man was settled in his
new position and little by little things were picking up due partly to good
New wife was able to take
things easy. He came home early each
evening to find that she had been in the kitchen with the cook helping fix a
delicious meal for him. She let the cook
off early and said we can wash the dishes after dinner ourselves.
Things seemed to be as
perfect as one could expect considering the world we live in.
The girls called home almost every day and
wanted to talk to Daddy if he was home.
One day the maid answered the
door to find a shabbily dressed woman that wanted to speak to the lady
of the house. The maid said for her to
wait while she asked if she wanted to talk to her.
The woman shouted after the
maid, “I’m the old roommate of her husband.”
New wife told the maid she
would handle it. When she got to the
door the woman was inside the foyer looking around. “Can I help you with something” she asked the
The woman went into a story
about how New Wife’s husband owed her and she needed help now so she wanted
money, as much as she could spare. She
added from the looks of things that would be quite a lot.
New wife said wait just a
moment and we’ll see if we can do anything.
New Wife called new husband
and related to him what was happening.
He said, “Give her twenty
dollars and call a cab for her. Tell her
to meet me in front of our building and I will handle it.”
New Wife did as he said and
when the cab arrived, the old room mate entered and left. New Wife called husband again and told him
what she had done and said there was a badly dressed man that got into the cab
New Man said, “I understand. That confirms what I thought.”
Ten minutes later he met the
cab and the woman and also the man got out of the cab. She came over and tried to introduce the boy
friend but New Man ignored him.
He asked, "How she dared to go
and bother his wife?"
She started out saying, "You
He interrupted her saying,
“Owe you what? Owe you for leaving and
taking my things, owe you for you never paying your share or the rent? When you left that was the end of what little
us there was. You have the nerve to drag
this pimp of yours here and try to introduce him to me?”
New Man gave her a hundred
dollar bill and said, “Give this to him and I will have a court order against
you and if you ever bother my wife again it will be the last time you bother
He then looked directly at
both of them and said, “Do you get my meaning?”
She started to turn away but
he stopped her and repeated, “Do you get my meaning?”
She said yes and her boy
friend grabbed the money away from her as they walked away.
He called the wife and
assured her that scene wouldn’t be repeated.
Time raced by and Daughter
number one graduated and when she came home she had an engagement ring on her
finger. Her mother wasn’t ready for that
announcement but her “Daddy” said. “He’s a nice boy and we welcome him into the
Daughter number one said, "You
don’t even know him, you haven’t ever met him?”
Daddy said, “I know more
about him than you do. His family isn’t
as rich as they make out. I don’t think
he is aware that they are soon to be poor; but all he will need is a good job
and we can help with that. Besides that
if you love him money won’t matter that much anyway. My judgment is he will make you a fine
Her mother said, “Bring him
home with you because I want to see this fine husband to be of yours."
Later that night New Man told
New Wife that she would like him and she could teach him how to be a success in
Six weeks later they were
married on their honeymoon at Niagara Falls.
New Wife said, “Now I only
have one more daughter to go. Next year
she will graduate and there will another guy for you to check out.”
He said, “Today I received an
offer for the company. It will be up to
you to decide about the offer for it is in my briefcase.”
She said, “If you think we
should take their offer, then that’s that.” Three weeks later the deal was done and new
man cleaned out his desk for the last time and said his goodbyes to all his
New Man had a different feeling than
he had ever felt before.
He was going home and Life
was sweet.He would enjoy the rest of his
time with his New Wife and family, and who knows before long there might be
grandchildren to love and spoil.
