My Life After I Introduced My Girlfriend To My Mother – Part 3
I was still lying on my lonely bed, sucking over my miserable life when a soft knock brushed my door.
I then wondered if I heard right and who it could be, because I wasn’t expecting anyone, except Ella whom I had been waiting for her call.
She wouldn’t come to my house, without calling.
And then, the knock was heard again, and if fell on me that, someone was actually knocking at the door.
So I stood up and headed to the door.
“Who is there?” I asked
“Is me, Dera….open”
“Dera?” I forced the door opened, looking at her, standing, fully dressed in her best.
I observed her face, to know if I could understand something, to know if our relationship was still safe.
But one thing was clear, she wasn’t looking happy.
When I was opening the door for her, I had all my fears, worries erased, but studying her face, they started coming back again.
She wasn’t looking like her ebullient self.
She always had her face radiating with love, joy and happiness anytime she saw me, but that day, she was looking different.
I then, calculated that, she had come to make it official, that it was over.
I was a man who suffered series of heartbreaks.
A man who believe in the institute of love and companionship, but was so unlucky in that sphere.
I almost gave up on love when Chidera came into my life and ushered in a new hope and a new beginning.
I then swore with everything in me to make sure she doesn’t find any reason to leave me.
Our breakup would be the most painful, because I invested a lot in making sure she doesn’t complain about anything. That she will remain happy and never leave me.
And then, she burst into tears.
And I was left confused.
“Do people cry when they are about to break up with someone? Then, what’s the point of breaking up with me if she can’t stand it?” I asked my sad wondering heart
“What’s the point of crying? You don’t need to stress yourself saying it… I understand. You are not the first and I don’t even think you will be the last, because I’m used to it. As it stands now, I’m done. I…..AM….DONE. Love is not for me. So, I better forget about love and move on. It’s not the end of the world. So, no need being over dramatic. The only option left for me now is to get a woman, pay her and have a child with her. As for love and marriage, I give up.”
And her cries paused.
She stood dazed, giving me this look.
I understood the puzzle going round her face, but I said that to make it easier for her.
There was no need to get over dramatic, breaking up with me..

Chidera fixed this confusing look on me, trying to understand what was going on.
“But I promised to love you forever, so, how can I break your heart?”
And I turned, to make sure she was the one speaking.
“Did you say something now? Looks like I’m beginning to hear things my heart is yearning to hear”
“Why do you think I came to break up with you?”
“Dera, you know how much I love you. We agreed travelling home today, but contacting you got so difficult. You were off from me. You blocked me online, you blocked me everywhere and I got so miserable, hopeless trying to figure out where I went wrong”
“It was because I lost my phone. My bag, everything”
“Yes….. I charted a Keke that was supposed to bring me straight to this place and it happened that the guy was an armed robber. He took…….”
I did not allow her to finish explaining what happened and I rushed and hugged her tight, releasing tears.
That moment, I felt like Lazarus who was brought back to life.
I already lost hope and she professed that, she still love and cherish me and promised to love me forever.
“Oh my baby, I am so sorry, you were attacked and I was here, worrying myself out, thinking so negative about you. Can you please forgive me?”
“Why would you think such a thing about me? I can’t leave you, Ok?”
“I am sorry baby…… but hope he didn’t injure you” I started checking her body to know if she was attacked
“No, he didn’t..but he had a gun and I panicked, scared and…”
And I still interrupted her with my hugs and promised to replace everything the robber took from her, including her phone.
And my life was restored again. My happiness, joy, everything. I became a complete man again, after she reassured she won’t let go, that she would love me forever.
We couldn’t travel again that day, because it was already late, so we shifted it to the next day.
So later in the night, she told me about a message her sister gave her, which was from her pastor.
According to the message, we were not compatible. They warned her to cancel everything she was doing with me, that I’m not the man in her destiny.
Ha….and my heart skipped.
She said it casually, while she was busy doing what she was doing.
She was washing rice, while I was slicing tomatoes.
She noticed how my mood changed. I got quiet, thinking about it and how it would affect her psyche, allowing what the pastor said to affect our relationship.
She laughed and said “you should stop worrying about every little thing. I don’t even know the man, my sister was the one who gave her our names to know if we are compatible. She was only being concerned for my future, but that pastor of her’s can’t decide my future. He predicted my future just with my name. He doesn’t know me, he doesn’t know you either, so I’m never going to believe anything he says”
“But what if it’s true, that we are not compatible?”
“Ok…do you love me?” she asked
“Yes… more than life itself”
“That’s more than enough for me. Baby, we are compatible. I can’t even see myself marrying a man who is not you. I have prayed about this and God has given me a go ahead answer, I won’t believe anything from one who claims to be a man of God, says, trust me. I have a God I pray to and he answer my prayers”
Listening to her, professing how much she love me made me the most luckiest man on earth.
After having my heart severed by heartless women, God decided to bless me with an Angel in human form.
I then concluded in my heart that, whether my mom approves her or not, I must marry Dera.
And finally, it was the next day and we set out to my village to introduce my one in a billion woman to my mother….do not stop reading..
