Fiction: How I Was Married To A Man For 2 Years Without Knowing That He Was A Snake

I have heard of countless of stories that sound very mysterious to my ears, but I never knew that I would be sharing mine someday. I got married to the love of my life who I met in a supermarket, he was very cool. We met while we were shopping in the same section, I wanted to select from the various brands of detergents on the shelf, and he came close and pointed at one of the detergents there. He said it had a very nice scent and was nice in making clothes very clean, so I picked it up, and we started talking and that was how we met.

He asked for my number and we started talking on phone and going on dates. I didn’t really get to meet any of his family members, but he was lovely. We fell in love and started planning our wedding. I asked to meet his people but he avoided the question, because I loved him, I didn’t think much about it. To my surprise on the wedding day, he came with his parents and some of his family members, and I was so happy. We moved in together and it was fun all the way. He bought me a car and made me feel very comfortable with him. He even went and opened for me a shop where I could sell variety of goods. However, there was something about him that I didn’t really understand. He built a very small structure downstairs where he said he used for prayers late at night. I didn’t seem to understand why he wanted to pray in somewhere other than in the room, and when I asked him, he said he didn’t want to disturb me.

Then one day he was out, I searched the whole house for the keys to that small room and finally saw it. I went downstairs and opened the room and to my greatest surprise what I saw really baffled me. I saw a snake’s skin that looked like it recently shed its skin. I was sacred but composed myself and played it cool. I thought of asking him but I didn’t want to cause any form of awkward situation so I acted asleep when he was about to go for his normal prayers. Then when he moved to go I opened my eyes, and started following him without him knowing.

He didn’t look back and he kept on walking as he opened the door, I stayed far away to look at what he was doing, and to my greatest surprised he fell on the ground like someone whose life had been taken from him. I wanted to run to meet him but I waited to see if anything more would happen, he started to twist like a snake then suddenly turned into one. I was so shocked and I wanted to scream but I covered my mouth with my hands and tears started to fall from my eyes. He then went out of the small room into our garden, moving on his stomach.

I was so scared, so I ran upstairs to pick up my phone to call my pastor, but to my greatest shock he had already reached the room. Coiled up on the bed, I started screaming, but he begged me to stop and told me that he was sorry for not telling me all along.He said he has always wanted to live like a human being all his life, but he didn’t have the chance until he found a way out. He said the chance he got came with a price, and that price was that he would have a child. He then begged me to stay with him, and he told me he would turn back into a human and never turn into a snake.

I asked him about the people he brought as his family members to our Wedding, and he said they were also snakes who turned to humans.

I was confused because I still loved him so much. I don’t know if I should report the issue, or take him back because of the love I have for him, please advice me.
