A Game Of A Neighbour Hood

It had almost become a agame for a neighbour to visit my family, this kind and simpathetic man as he looked to be use to check on my family almost every after 4 hours aday, i did not put much attention since i consindered him a family fried, he could come, what with my children and also give him gifts. One day when i was at work i got a phone call. telling me to quickly go back home as something bad was going on, the person who called me did not tell what the problem was and who he was. I packed afew things and rushed back home. What i found my so called family friend do with my wife is hard to beleive and what i did with my anger is not good to hear or read. What pains me, is that upto now i don't know the person who noticed me that my own wife was cheating on me, said Peter with tears in eyes.
