What my wife did the night armed robbers invaded our home, I will never forget
I love my wife so much that I’m willing to do anything for her. Willing to do anything to make smiles permanently plastered on her face
Everyday, when I wake up, I give praises to God for making her my wife and appreciating her for accepting to be my wife
So, one day, her love for me was tested in the most unusual way.
That fateful night shocked me to the bones, that I will never forget it, even in my next life. But I thank God that it happened, atleast it made me understood my position in her heart.
This happened last year November, 2020. We already finished saying our night prayers and then retire to bed. But our sleep was interrupted when we started hearing a creepy sound coming from the sitting room.
My wife was the first person who heard it and then quietly tapped me to wake up.
She said in a whisper, that she thinks our home has been invaded. And my heart jumped out of my chest, because that night, there wasn’t enough money at home if really they were armed robbers. So I asked her to hide inside the wardrobe, while I sneaked to the sitting room to find out who or what was making those sounds in the house. But before she could rush to the wardrobe, they pushed open the door and pointed their guns at us. They were 4 of them.
My wife was shaking in fear and that really pained my heart. The woman I cherish so much, whom I wouldn’t like to see in any hard condition, not even for a minute.
So I asked them what they wanted, and one of them, whom I believed was their leader replied, saying that my question was very stupid. That I was supposed to know what people like them want when they enter people’s home. So I rushed to where I kept my wallet and brought out the whole money that was inside. It counted to N2200 and I gave it all to them. And the leader sounded me a slap, asking if I thought he came to play. And the person who was pointing his gun to my wife readjusted his hand, to show me that, he was ready to shot her if I don’t comply. And my wife was crying, shivering. I could hear her mumbling something, which I believed was a prayer.
And I was feeling bad that, I couldn’t protect her at that moment. In all the days I started living with her, I never knew there could be a day I would be stripped of all my strengths, powers to protect her. I thought that, as long as I remain her husband, no harm would ever come to her side. That night proved me wrong. I was helpless, I was overpowered by men with guns.
So I pleaded with them that 2200 was the only money I have in the house.
And their leader got furious and then went to my wife’s side, pushed aside the other guy that was there and then pointed his gun on her. He asked me to be reasonable or he will force my wife
Oh Lord! This scattered my brain. I didn’t know when I stood to charge at him and one of them hit me hard with his gun. It was really painful. And my behaviour deteriorated the situation and the leader got mad and asked my wife to come to the centre of the room.
I was no longer myself. I couldn’t protect my beautiful wife. She was shaking terribly in fear and gave me this look that I couldn’t interpret at that moment. A look of someone who was about to die.
So I asked the robbers to also take my phones, take anything they see in the house, but leave my wife. But the leader said, it was already late for that, that my wife fancied his interest and would be having her that night. So I made up my mind to fight them, that even if it meant loosing my life, that it would be better than watching my wife, forced.
So my wife quickly understood the action I was about to take and asked me to be still. She only said it with her eyes and I understood her immediately. She doesn’t want to see me harmed. I saw how terrified she looked when they hit me the first time, so she doesn’t want to see them hurt me again.
The leader already removed his pant and was asking my wife to remove her night wear. That he wasn’t going to force her, that he doesn’t like forcing women, that there is no joy in it. That he will take it gently and slowly while I watched.
And the two guys standing at my side maintained their position, pointing their guns at me and ready to shoot if I make any funny move.
I felt terribly bad and hopeless.
My wife still remained where she was kneeling, praying seriously in her heart. And the robber dragged her to the centre of the room and asked her nicely to remove her clothes. That having a woman in the presence of her husband has always been his best part. But my wife still resisted. He told her that, he was ready to shoot her if she refuses to do what he asked.
My wife’s resistance was beginning to scare me. I started asking her to allow him do it, that everything will be fine later. That it will be better to watch him do it than loosing her. And that I can’t bear it if they kill her. But she still resisted. She then turned to me and said: “the day I accepted to marry you, I swore to protect my honour till I take my last breath. I see everything you do for me, your sacrifices of ensuring that I remain happy for the rest of my life. Even in the face of death, I am not ready to dirty my body because it only belongs to you. I am sorry, I can’t do this, my handsome husband. When I’m gone, don’t cry too much for me, my love, because I will be feeling it anywhere I am. And you know that, whenever you are happy, I’m happy, but anytime you are sad, you know how worried I used to be. Be happy and I will be smiling back at you anywhere I am”
Her speech was breaking in tears, my heart got heavy that I will be loosing her.
But do you believe in miracles? Yes, that night made me believe that, miracle happens. My life was ready to give up her life for her marriage not to be tainted with another blood, but God changed the situation by melting the heart of the robbers.
The guy couldn’t believe that, a woman was ready to loose her life instead of dishonouring the vow she made. And he said, in all his life, he hasn’t seen couple like us.
A man who was ready to allow his wife used so that her life can be spared, and a wife who was ready to loose her life instead of being forced. He then said, that he won’t be the reason for our love story to be cut short. That he had come to believe that true love still exist. He took the N2200 I gave them and left. They even wished us good luck on our love story and wished to have a woman that will be willing to love him like my wife loves me. And they left.
Immediately they left, I rushed my ever adorable beautiful wife, who was already traumatised after facing near death and I held her, calming her down. I told her that, it was ok, that they have gone. I carried her to the bed, petting her. She held me tight, still shaking.
It took her days before she could forget the event of that night. But it will take me forever to continue loving, adoring, honouring, caring, beautifying and making her happy for loving me. I am blessed for having her. Her speech made a hardened criminal change his heart without strong persuasion. The God we serve is alive forever and always runs to our rescue.
