A GREEDY WIFE NOT NEEDED

A GREEDY WIFE NOT NEEDED – By Dean O. Arutoghor

From his elevated position in the VIP area, the new signing at Arsenal FC caught Charlene’s eyes on the dance floor.
He smiled and winked at her. She looked back at him blankly. Good!
He gestured at the VIP area and beckoned her over but she scowled at him. Good!
He lifted the bottle of Champagne from the metal bucket and jiggled it over his head at her temptingly. She looked at him with disgust and turned her back on him to face her friend. Good!
Three hours later as bleary-eyed clubbers poured out of the nightclub in Leicester Square, Charlene and her friend, Vicky, linked arms and walked to the bus stop to get a bus back home to Brixton.
A sports car was suddenly cruising beside them. The millionaire footballer tried in vain to talk Charlene into his car with no luck. They scurried off as if escaping from a sex pest.
Two weeks later, after their home win against Everton, the same footballer approached Charlene again in the same nightclub but this time in a more humble way.

They got chatting. He found her funny, straight-talking and down to earth. When they went on a date four days after that, she revealed that football bored her and she despised footballers because of their arrogance when she had come across them in nightclubs in the past. That made him smile. After the meal, she even insisted on paying her share. Good. Very good, he thought.
He was only forced to reveal that he was a footballer a month after they had been seeing each other but only because some Arsenal fan called Yemi, on holiday from Nigeria, came up to him to ask for his autograph.
Charlene dumped him straightaway when she found out and it took him a good month to woo her back. Seven months later, he proposed. Another eight months after that they tied the nut in a lavish wedding.
Three months later, Charlene was pregnant. When she found out, she stood in front of the bathroom mirror and patted her tummy with a knowing smile on her face. Not only had she won the £10 bet that she had made with Vicky that she could get a footballer to chase her, she had taken it even further by getting the fool to marry her and impregnate her.
