Ujuaku found her way to the kitchen and was searching for what to cook.
She then returned to Okwuchi and told her that, she couldn’t find something reasonable to cook.
“But I think we can manage this” she said, showing her a pot of pasta Ogechi made that morning.
And Okwuchi said she can manage it.
Ndubuisi was already furious and couldn’t wait to reach home.
“Mama has done enough destroying my life. Is it now a bad thing for a son to love and honor his mother? Why is she taking my respect to be a weakness and using it against me? Not anymore, mother. I told you I’m no longer going to allow you control me” Ndubuisi determined, controlling the steering.
Ogechi was still not relaxed. She was scared of what may happen.
“Can you call him again to know if he is still coming?” Ogechi asked Cherry who was lying down, thinking about everything she told her.
“I don’t know why you are worrying so much. I’ve told you to relax, he will soon be here” Cherry replied
“I’m feeling unease. And whenever I start feeling this way, then something terrible is about to happen. I am so scared” Ogechi said amidst fears
Cherry looked at her and realized that, it was pointless trying to calm her down. She then, turned over to the other side of the bed, having a good nap, freeing her mind from worries.
“Well, she certainly doesn’t know what Okwuchi is capable off.” Ogechi shook her head, looking at Cherry who was paying nonchalant to the tension in the house.
Okwuchi had finished eating while Ujuaku cleared the table.
She also ate the remaining small portion that was left in the pot.
She then headed to the room, to get prepared for when Ndubuisi would be returning home.
While waiting for Ndubuisi, she reminisced everything her mother told her and the instructions she gave regarding Ndubuisi.
“Don’t worry mother, Ndubuisi is mine and mine alone. I have come to claim him all to myself” she said, looking very serious
And finally, Ndubuisi was home. He faced his mother as his eyes red mean.
“What are you doing here, mama?”
“Is that the proper way to welcome your mother?” Okwuchi asked, comfortably balancing on the chair
“He is here” Ogechi exclaimed, running out of the room. She felt relieved that, Ndubuisi had come to control the situation.
“I heard you brought another girl for me”
“So they already told you?” Okwuchi asked
And Ndubuisi got weak, looking at his mother, and wondered what crime he had committed by having a non considerate mother.
“Mama, why do you hate me so much?”
“I don’t hate you my son. You are my only child. My only fruit, I only want the best for you”
“Mama, this best you said you want for me, is definitely going to destroy me. I want you to do the needful and send that girl back to the village. I want you to do it yourself. Send her back to the village. I only have a wife and that is Ogechi.”
And Ogechi felt so comforting hearing Ndubuisi calling her his wife.
“But what about Cherry, does it mean, he is not considering her anymore? I like her, it doesn’t mean if he decides to marry us both. She is nice” Ogechi thought to herself
“And talking about that, when are you planning to tell me?” Okwuchi who was still balancing on the chair, asked Ndubuisi who was just weak over what his mother was doing.
“It’s a long story which I wasn’t even planning on sharing with you, because I know what you are capable off”
“You mean, you were not even planning on sharing it with me?” she looked shocked and disappointed. She then faced Ogechi “I know what game you and your mother is playing, but hear this, you failed on arrival, because I’m here to take care of my son, and give him the wife he truly deserves.
“Stop it, mama!” Ndubuisi ordered in deep angry tone as Okwuchi startled, looking at him. Ndubuisi never raised his voice at her like that.
“I said stop it. Can you even listen to yourself? You have come to give me a wife, as an imbecile I am, right? Before I open my eyes and close it, you are already gone, along with that thing you brought here” Ndubuisi looked very serious
And Okwuchi couldn’t believe her ears.
“My only son, asking me to leave his house? My world has finished. My enemies has succeeded in destroying me” Okwuchi started weeping.
Ndubuisi ignored her, rushed the room, to drag Ujuaku out.
“Well, that’s a nice one. I thought he was really going to be a mama’s boy. That’s my kind of man” Cherry who was listening to the drama that was playing in the living room, said
