Ogechi sniffled hard, picking the phone Cherry left for her and dialed her mother’s cell phone number.
The mother wondered who was calling, because the line wasn’t stored in her contact list.
“Hello” She greeted formally
And Ogechi left herself crying again. The mother quickly picked the voice.
“Ogechi? My daughter, what is is? What has Ndubuisi done again?”
“Mama, when we spoke in the morning, my over joyous heart couldn’t wait to share everything that happened between my sweet husband and I. Ndubuisi finally forgotten everything and allowed his heart shower me with all his love. He still love me, Mama. I am still his wife” Ogechi said, as her words continued breaking in tears
And the mother shouted out in joy, but got interrupted with Ogechi’s sad voice.
“But why do I get the feeling you are not happy or are those tears of joy?”
“But everything changed after his mother brought in another problem for him” Ogechi said, narrating everything that happened and how Ndubuisi suddenly went dazed.
“And you are crying? My daughter, this is not time for tears, this is the time for action. Your husband is under the manipulation of the evil ones. Time to prove to him that, you are his true wife and you are not going to leave his side no matter what. There are phases in every woman’s marital life, I believe yours came too early. Trust me, very soon, this Egyptians you are seeing today, you shall see them no more. Stand on your feet, get your garment of war, because we are in a battle. Is that why you are crying? To my best of knowledge, anything achieved mischievously or by evil means can never last.”
Ogechi had her faith brushing up as her mother continued greasing her.
“And this is also God’s own plan of teaching Okwuchi a terrible lesson. I wish I can see her face right now. She really got it hot this time. So my daughter, see this as God’s perfect design of making Okwuchi to leave you alone to enjoy your marriage”
“Mama, you know what, you are the best mother in the whole world. Like you said, Ndubuisi needs me now more than ever. I must save him from that evil woman”
“Yes, and please, apply extra caution. You know the enemy never rest”
“I know mama, Ndubuisi is my husband and that means. I am the only one who has right over him, and for that, the Almighty God is going to support me on this battle”
“Exactly my daughter. I trust in the Lord we serve, he will never leave your side. You will triumph, trust me. So wipe your tears, we are gradually reaching the end of that tunnel”
They ended the call as Ogechi got a wind of hope greasing her heart. She stood bold, determined to saving her dear husband.
Okwuchi was still with her phone, trying to connect baba. But he wasn’t responding. She started getting impatient and mad with everything that was happening.
She remembered how Ujuaku was playing the good humble girl.
“So she was pretending all along? That girl really had me played? But she looks so innocent. I have truly destroyed my son. He is never ever going to forgive me if he finally gets over with this. What have I done?” She was still nurturing her remorse when Ndubuisi’s phone started ringing. He left it on the table.
When he was responding to the caller, Okwuchi couldn’t believe the words that were dropping out if his mouth.
“Listen, my shop is closed. My beautiful wife needs all my attention and I’m not coming to sell anything to you except she says so. Bye bye” Ndubuisi said, shoving off one of his regular customers
“Ndubuisi!” Okwuchi called in shock
“What did you just say?”
“My wife needs me. They should buy from my neighbours, I won’t leave this house again. Never again, except my Queen ask me to” Ndubuisi replied, giving attitude like that of a baby
“Ewooo…efuem” (I’m lost)” Okwuchi wailed deeply ‘Ujuaku! Ujuaku!!” Okwuchi called, tried swooshing into Ndubuisi’s room as she and Ujuaku who was about to answer her, jammed at the door.
In anger, she grabbed her by the neck, in order to choke her.
“I am going to kill you today. I believe with your death, whatever charm you are using on my son will die along with you”
But Okwuchi never saw what came next.
Ogechi stood, watching the whole drama.
