Mum: uhmmmmm (Deep Sigh)…………what do we do now..am now confuse

Me: Am completely finish mum

Mum: olorun o ni je ka ri..why will u utter such words………God will lead us through, my major concern now is Biola cos u have offended that lady

Me: she’s not even ready to talk to me..since on Saturday

Mum: she called me this morning when u left..

Me: u don’t mean it mum..did u beg her for me? What did she say?

Mum: she said she was already asleep when I called yester nyt…I pleaded for her to see me at home tomorrow after close of work even though I didn’t let her know abt my knowledge of whats happening

Me: so, what do we do mum? I just want an opportunity to talk to her even if it will be for the last time mum…

Mum: don’t worry..we will go to the house together tomorrow but you wont park your car in the compound..u stay inside the room while I talk to her in the sitting room then you can later have opportunity to talk to her

Me: ohk mum…you are the best mum……

Mum: The best indeed…igba to npa eku o nda je..o ti pa arogidigba bayi, o ti gbe wale fun wa (when you were doing it, u were enjoying it alone but know you have brought the trouble to us).



We were still inside when mary walked in crying, she went on her kneels holding my leg..my mum excused us

Mary: please am very sorry snakie……please, i dont want you to see me as an intruder or someone that came to shatter your sweet life….

“cut in…..in loud voice”

Me: stop this nonsense abeg, you are not an intruder then what did u do eventually? Atleast you have achieved your aim, u can now leave me with your silly pregnancy….i accepted the fact that the pregnancy might be mine but get it to your head, i can never marry u cos i know thats your plan…if you av been dreaming about it, you better wake up

Mary: please find a way to forgive me……am not looking for forceful marriage either…..i never think things will come out this way between us, i believe it was fate that brought us together….ever since in my life, you are the first guy i ever truly fall in love with…i have never been pregnant before in my life need to talk of going under the knife and my mum already warned me not to try it..if not i would have love to get rid of it immediately but please pity my condition…see me as your sister snakie…i truly love you from the depth of my heart…all i was thinking over the past one month was that we are playing games and enjoying ourselves, i never knew things will come out this way and if there’s anytyn have learnt in life is that the best thing in life are worth fighting for and you know the yoruba adage that says its whatever you fight for that stays longer in your hand…..

“felt a little bit touched as i couldnt withstand her tears but i still frown my face”

Me: fight for who? U know from the begining that you can never fight for me as i already belong to someone and thank God u admitted we were only playing games

Mary: yes i know but all that changed the moment i confirmed that i was pregnant…..i have never been in love like this before snakie……ever since d first night i spend here, i always wish you coukd be mine but i knew as at then that its a very impossible task not knowing that things will come out this way…please forgive me snakie, am very sorry for all have made you gone through..pkease put me in place of your junior sister…please i can face the shame of a single mother…i dont want to embarrass my parent, they will be ashamed of me…please dont put me to shame snakie, i beg u with everything that is dear to u….please, am very sorry for everytyn, please lets accept everytyn as act of God as i believe he knows the beginning and the end……i know it will be very hard 4u to accept me but am ready to bear any decision you make but please don’t put me to shame, i beg u in the name of God and your parent……”crying seriously”

I was dump founded and didnt know what to say until my mum walks in again

I was dump founded and didnt know what to say until my mum walks in again

Mum: its ohkay mary

Mary:am very sorry mummy…it wasnt intentional….am not a devil nor trying to force myself to marry him

Mum:its ohkay….please stop crying….you children of nowadays you always think everytyn u do its about enjoying life and not thinking of the consequence…now it has happened and you guys scattered everywhere..if it was pregnancy alone it would av been better but the innocent girl you people take for a fool..put ursef in biola’s shoe, how will u feel? Or if biola is your sister snakie, how will u feel if a guy treated her this way? All in all, we thank God its not beyond this situation and i believe Gox will lead us through…i believe this will be a lesson for both of you to always think of the consequences of your actions before taking them cos there are some actions that are always beyond remedy but we still thank God for where we are and pray for his guidance to lead us through. Me and your husband will be going out tomorrow Mary…..stand up and lets go prepare what we will eat….God is in control
