Okwuchi who could no longer stand the confusion playing in her mind, called Ujuaku, asking her what was going on.
“Ujuaku?” she called in sharp voice
“Yes mother inlaw” she answered as her face showed clear happiness
“What did you do to my son?”
Okwuchi was looking very serious, striking Ujuaku with a deep questioning look.
Ndubuisi who was lost to reality picked Ujuaku’s hand and was massaging it for her, smiling spontaneously and this got Okwuchi convinced that something was definitely wrong with her son.
“Answer me, what did you do to him?” She repeated, as her angry roaring voice pierced Ujuaku’s hearing drums
“Jeeez…come on mother inlaw, speak softly please. And why are you asking me what is wrong with him? I thought it’s what we both wanted? Remember I told you to relax, that he is going to worship the ground I walk on when he finally sets his eyes on me? Isn’t that what is happening now? You should be happy, he accepted the beautiful girl you chose for him without first, creating a drama. So, everything is working accordingly”
“Shut up Ujuaku…What do you take me for? A fool?” Okwuchi asked ferociously
And Ujuaku smacked her lips, giving a scorn facial expression.
“I know my son and how his brain works. Even if he is going to accept you, not this way. Not without pulling some resistance. Tell me what you did to him or you will see yourself in my black book”
Ujuaku smirked, yawning wildly, to make Okwuchi understand that, she wasn’t scared of her threats.
“Can you take me to our room, please? Some people are beginning to irritate me”
“Yes my queen” Ndubuisi stood, leading her to the room.
And Okwuchi’s mouth stocked on her jaw, remaining ajar. She was still yet to recover from all he saw when Ujuaku tapped her from behind.
“Don’t stress yourself too much mother inlaw, I’m in control of his life now. And don’t worry, he won’t regret marrying me. And please Mother inlaw, behave or I will ask him to send you back to the village” Ujuaku smirked loudly, staggering inside
Okwuchi was dumbfounded.
And then, Ogechi walked up to her.
“Remember when he told you that, this ‘best’ you claim you want for him is definitely going to destroy him? I guess he foresaw this. Thank you for completely destroying your only son’s life” Ogechi left her there and headed to the spare room.
She found herself in pull of her tears.
She was holding herself from crying in front of everyone.
So, staying alone in the room, she found it proper to allow her heavy heart, shed.
“Dear Lord, to tell you the truth, I am tired of fighting this. I am tired. When will my husband finally have his true happiness? Show me you are there by saving him. Deliver him from this bondage. Save my husband from the hands of these evil people controlling him. First, it was his own mother, and now, a strange girl. Save him my God, because I am tired of fighting, I am just so tired, Lord” She prayed with a heavy heart
Okwuchi understood what was happening and called Nkechi to inform her of the latest development.
“My friend oooo…….the dangerous snake is in disguise. My son is trapped oo. I have used my own two hands to destroy my innocent son’s life”
“Can you go straight to the point, what is happening?” Nkechi got curious
“First of all, pause going to baba’s place. Hold on for now, until I call him and narrate everything that is happening here”
“Ok, but can you tell me what is going on?”
“You know Ujuaku, the girl I thought would be all and all?”
“The perfect humble wife for Ndubuisi…yes, what about her?”
“She has turned out be a snake in disguise. The girl is using something on my son. She is in control of his life now”
“But isn’t that what you wanted? It will make it easier for him to throw Ogechi and the other fair skinned girl out of his life”
“Nooooo….you are not getting the point. Ndubuisi is behaving like something they are controlling with remote. Even if he would accept her, not so soon and not like this. My son has lost his mind. He is lost and is all because of me.”
“This is strange. Ujuaku doesn’t look desperate to me. How could she turn out to be dangerous? She is from a well responsible background, are you sure of what you are saying? Maybe, it’s what they call, love at first sight”
“You are not getting my point. This girl did something and she used her mouth to warn me to behave or she will ask Ndubuisi to throw me out of his house”
“Ewooo….whaaaaaat? She said that? And what are you still waiting for? Call baba right away”
“That’s what I’m doing now” Okwuchi said, disconnecting the call.
Ogechi was still deep in spirit, asking for divine intervention for her husband, Ndubuisi
