Okwuchi who was trying to exercise her strength on Ujuaku felt her pride seriously wounded.
As she descended on her with a heavy slap, Ndubuisi had her pushed and gave her a resounding slap. The weight of the slap was so heavy that she fell so hard on the floor.
Okwuchi felt stars splashing out of her eyes. No one had ever treated her that way. Her day suddenly turned dark.
“Ndubuisi” Ogechi screamed, rushing to help Okwuchi
Ndubuisi stood there, looking at his mother as his face had emotions fickling on it.
“Ndubuisi, I know you are still in there. You can control this. You can control this, my husband. Look at me… ”
And Ndubuisi gave her a look. Ogechi studied his eyes closely and felt something.
She felt how sorry he was over what he did, but he can’t stop it. And another thing she discovered from looking at his eyes was, sadness. He was asking her to help him.
She then swoosh to him, touched his heart.
“My love, I am not going to leave you, I am your wife, trust me, I must save you from this nightmare. Just hang in there for me and for your mother” Ogechi said and this got Ujuaku smirking hard
“What is wrong with some people? Listen here..” talking to Ogechi” Your husband is no longer in love with you. If I were you, I would be long gone from here, because I have gained full possession of him. He does everything I ask him and right now, I’m going to make him treat you in the most awesome way you deserve by placing that dirty hand of yours on his chest”
And Ogechi walked to her in a bold manner as they stood opposite each other.
“Listen………incase you are forgetting, true love is never forced, it’s something that happens naturally. You may have forced him into being with you, but his heart is never going to be yours. Do whatever you wish, I’m never leaving his side” Ogechi courageous words pierced Ujuaku’s ego and she asked Ndubuisi to teach her a lesson.
“I have seen that your mouth is too wide, I will be doing you a favour by taming it” Ujuaku got mean
Ogechi already knew what she was about to do next and she got prepared for her, encouraged her heart to be strong and courageous.
Ujuaku commanded Ndubuisi to teach Ogechi a lesson for insulting her
“My husband” she called
“Yes my Queen” Ndubuisi replied, looking like someone whose senses had been altered
“She just insulted your beautiful wife, I want you to teach her a very sound lesson. Hit her hard, in such a way she won’t be able to walk again. Crush every bones in her body, strangle her tongue, so that she won’t be able to talk back at your beautiful queen again” Ujuaku commanded in a heat furious tone
And Ndubuisi turned looking at Ogechi. Ogechi felt her strength leaving her, as fears took over her being.
She knew that, if Ndubuisi goes ahead with the instruction, she will be seriously damaged.
But her mother’s words of hope came romancing her heart again and she found her strength returning to her.
“Ogechi, do not fickle. You can do this. He is your husband. He needs you to save him” Ogechi brave up hard
Ndubuisi was about carrying out the instruction given to him, but he found his legs trudging heavily.
His eyes where fixed on Ogechi whom she loved so much as they maintained an eye contact. The connection between them was interfering with what Ujuaku did on him.
Okwuchi saw what was about to happen and advised Ogechi to run away. That if Ndubuisi succeeds in carrying out the order, that she may not survive it and that, Ndubuisi may die of guilt and regret when he finally regain himself.
“Ogechi, this is not the time to be brave, run away and save yourself.”
“No mama, he needs my help, and I’m not leaving him in this condition. Every woman has her trying time, I believe this is my own hour. What kind of a wife would I be, if I can’t stand by my husband and save him from the hands of evil people? He honoured me by calling me his wife today….So mama, your son needs his wife to save him” Ogechi’s brave words softened Okwuchi’s heart and she got weak over everything. She quickly remembered how she was helping her clean the house and fetching firewood despite being separated from her son.
“In all my efforts to gain control over my son’s life, I was blinded from seeing what an Angel I got for him. I gave him the best gift any mother can give her child. Ogechi is the ideal wife and daughter inlaw” Okwuchi got hysterical, as tears nudged her eyes
