Okwuchi and Ujuaku left the village very early so they can storm in on Ndubuisi before he leaves for work.
She knew that, Ndubuisi would never agree with her if she tells him of her intention of coming to the city with the new girl she brought for her.
But due to traffic, they were not able to meet up with Ndubuisi.
Ndubuisi already left before they arrived.
But drama ensued after she saw Ogechi in the house.
Okwuchi couldn’t believe her eyes, wondering why Ndubuisi never told her what was going on.
Ogechi is battling with a panic attact, facing Okwuchi who was already furious with her presence.
“Oh my God? What is she doing here?” She feared, thinking over what may become of her with Okwuchi around. “What if she renews the stealing spirit again? And not now, the tension between Ndubuisi and I has finally cleared. Oh Lord, I am so scared, because Ndubuisi is never ever going to stand my sight again if that happens. Lord, please help me. Help me Lord” Ogechi nurtured intense fear, asking for divine intervention
Okwuchi finally got over her shock and decided to descend on Ogechi.
“Ogechi what are doing here?”
Ogechi couldn’t answer her, she was scared all over.
“What are you doing in my son’s house, Ogechi?” Okwuchi repeated, vibrating in anger
Cherry was just there, watching Ogechi’s reaction and how scared she was looking.
“Are you now dumb? Listen, before I open my eyes and close them, you are already gone from this house. I said get out from my son’s house. Get out!” Okwuchi commanded as her voice roared like thunder in Ogechi’s ears
Ogechi didn’t think twice and headed straight to the door. She thought that, if she disobeys, Okwuchi may somehow renew the stealing spirit again.
But Cherry stopped her. She doesn’t like the way Okwuchi harrased Ogechi.
“Where do you think you are going? You just had an accident, you should be resting. Enter the room and allow your wounds to heal” Cherry instructed, heading to the door, gently pushing Ogechi back inside and shutting it
But Ogechi did not like the idea.
“If only she has a little idea of what she is capable of, she won’t also harbour the idea of remaining here” Ogechi said in her heart, thinking of the best way to evade Okwuchi’s evil shadows
Okwuchi couldn’t believe what was happening. She felt her brain cracking on how a stranger could challenge her in her own son’s house.
“Heeey!!! Come back here.” She ordered Cherry who was already heading to the room
“Who are you to challenge me? Don’t you know who I am? I’m asking you, don’t you know who I am?”
“Mama, I know you very well, but she is not stepping out of this house until Ndubuisi comes back. He is the reason for her condition”
Okwuchi observed Ogechi closely and found some bruises.
“What happened to you?” She got curious
“It’s nothing serious, it’s just a small accident”
“A small accident? But I don’t care. Ogechi, if you know what’s best for you, better leave from this house and go back to the village where you belong, because, as long as I’m alive, Ndubuisi my son will never have you as his wife again. Never! Even if he disobey me, I will make sure your marriage never know peace. You see this humble girl, who is full of respect and love for me?” She asked, touching Ujuaku and continued,
“I have brought her for my son to marry, and he will never say no to me, even if he wants to. So I’m asking you nicely to stop wasting your time on something that is never going to be. You know me and know what I’m capable off. ”
Cherry who was in the room heard everything Okwuchi vomited from her mouth and felt disgusted with her. She shuddered at her abhorrent behaviour.
“What kind of mother is this? A mother that pushes her own interest over that of her son’s. She is terrible”
Cherry took umbrage at Okwuchi’s wicked attitude and returned to the living room to save Ogechi. She dragged her inside Ndubuisi’s room, shutting the door.
Ogechi was getting more scared and troubled that, Cherry was making matters worse for her.
“Let me tell you. You shouldn’t stand up to her like that, I have lived with her, she is wicked, evil and can do anything to destroy your happiness. Don’t challenge her, otherwise your relationship with Ndubuisi will also be in jeopardy. He will do anything to make sure that, it never happen” Ogechi advised as Cherry studied her closely, and noticed the fear showing all over her
“The woman is trouble, you shouldn’t give her the space to control your life like that. I heard everything that happened with you. Did you actually do it? Is stealing a part of you? Be sincere. Tell me everything, from A to Z”
And Ogechi began narrating her story, starting from when Okwuchi came to her father’s house to meet her parents about the marriage proposal.
Ujuaku was still standing, waiting for Okwuchi to instruct her to sit down.
She never stopped shaking her head, reproaching Cherry’s attitude, calling her disrespectful.
“Mama, can you imagine? They don’t have respect at all. See how they are behaving like wild animals. Especially, that fair one. And that is not even her complexion. She is bleaching her skin. All these city girls, they are too spoilt and lack home training”
But Okwuchi wasn’t interested in what she was saying, she couldn’t wait for Ndubuisi to come back so she will ask him to throw them out of the house.”
