The Other Woman

The beats boomed on Sola’s speakers today as it did some 40 years ago when their dad saddled all five kids up to live with him in another city. The kids were told both parents had to live apart because they had to work in different cities several miles apart. It was sad saying goodbye to their class mates.

Their dad always played that song. Sola and her siblings would always dance to it.

Listening to the lyrics now, it was all clear, “Dad had actually moved out because he was in love with another woman”.
