Mama why – season 2 episode 12 by Ngozi Lovelyn
“Are you really here?” Ogechi asked, feeling Ndubuisi’s face, to be sure once again that, he was really present with her.
“Yes.. I am here but, where were you running to? You collided with my car”
And Ogechi gave him a sudden look, to understand what she just heard.
“You mean you hit me with your car?You were the one that hit me?” she asked in a clear tone
“After you left, my heart decided not to allow me enjoy my meal in peace. I was forced to search for you in the dead of the night. I knew you would definitely be around, somewhere closeby, so I decided to search for you in the obvious places. And then you ran into my car. Thank God I wasn’t on speed. It would have been a different story”
“God sure work in mysterious ways. He was the one who designed the accident just to unite us again.”
“Ok, but why were you running?”
And Ogechi narrated her encounter. How she decided to sleep in the uncompleted building and how she took to her heels after overhearing the robbers conversing about not using their gun on someone.
“And you ran straight into me. You were right. God sure work in mysterious ways. The timing was so perfect”
“Yes” Ogechi affirmed, and felt her aching head
“I am so sorry dear. It was my fault. I shouldn’t have allowed you leave the house” he said, gently blowing her head, to help ease her pains
And Ogechi was appreciating God.
“God, you always make everything so possible at the right time. You finally returned my husband to me. The man who I thought I’ve lost forever. You deserve all the praises my Lord. I will worship and serve you forever”
“How is it? It’s not paininig you again, right?” Ndubuisi asked, feeling deeply concerned. Wishing to take all her pains away and Ogechi got teary.
Ndubuisi misinterpreted her feelings, thinking she was crying because of the pains.
“I am so sorry. Let me get the nurse so they can give you a drug that will help stop the pains”
“No…. I’m not crying because of the pains and besides, I did not even sustain serious injury. You see this” Ogechi asked, tugging out tear from her eye. “You see this, it’s not tear from any pain, it’s a joy, tears of joy. I never believe that, this day would finally come. It feels like, I’m dreaming.”
“You are not dreaming, my dear” he said, pecking her forehead
And just then, Ndubuisi’s phone started ringing again. He quickly knew that, Cherry was the one calling and his mood changed.
He brought out the phone and then sat down quietly, thinking of the next thing to do.
Ogechi understood what was happening and then lost all her happiness instantly.
She forgot that, Ndubuisi was already engaged and set to marry another woman.
“God I allowed myself to experience massive joy, forgetting that, there is another woman in the picture. What is my fate now? My future with Ndubuisi is still not yet certain. This game is still on and I don’t know if it’s going to end in my favour. My dear Lord, I know that, you designed this night for a reason. May that reason never slack. May it continue working in my favour until all my possessions that were forcefully snatched from me finally return to me.” Ogechi continued asking for God’s help, closing her eyes in concentration.
Ndubuisi fixed a look on her, confused on what next to do.
“But Cherry is a nice girl and she hasn’t given me any reason not to marry her. But Ogechi, this thing I’m feeling for her now, what if it’s because of the whole accident thing? I was scared of her dying on me and the thing diffused me into thinking that, I still care for her. Ogechi has a terrible past, I better stick with Cherry who doesn’t have any questionable character” he advised himself and then stood up, went outside to answer Cherry.
While he was leaving to receive the call, Ogechi fixed a look on him with sheer uncertainty pilling in her heart. She reminded God of their agreement.
Still answering the call, Ndubuisi told Cherry that, he hit Ebere while searching for her.
“Ebere, the one that introduced herself as your cousin?” Cherry asked
“Yes” Ndubuisi said, narrating everything that happened and Cherry wondered why Ndubuisi lied to her and hid Ogechi’s identity from her.
