“I FELL IN LOVE!”
“How will I explain all this to my wife, I guess I’m in trouble” he said to himself.
He checked his broken phone again, he tried to put it on it but to no avail.
He thought of ways to reach her, people don’t run call centers again. He decided to go to one of his neighbor, there is this young guy next door. He checked on the guy but unfortunately he’s not in.
He felt bad that he won’t get to speak with his wife that evening. He’s very sure his wife will be trying his line by now.
“How will I reach Wemmy this night” he thought within himself.
He went back to his room, laid on his bed. Flashes of the drama that happened earlier kept on coming unconsciously. Scenes of his phone been smashed against the wall, Thessy’s slaps and all, kept on replaying in his head.
He never imagined he could found himself in such an awkward situation. That’s one of the disadvantages of living separately with one’s spouse. One thing is sure, Sewa can’t have the effrontery to come to his matrimonial home to pull all those stunts she pulled earlier”. He just hope she forget about him and changed for better.
Wemmy has been trying her husband’s line, but it’s not connecting, she decided to call Thessy since she told her she’ll be visiting him that very day.
Hello Thessy, I’m sorry to disturb you. Were you able to make it to Feranmi’s place today?”
“Yes I left few hours ago, any problem?” Thessy watched her words trying not to slip.
“I’ve been trying his line, but its not connecting”
“That’s true his phone is kind of faulty”
How come, we still talked in the afternoon”
“You know all this smart phones, once they drop on the floor they start developing faults, don’t worry he’s fine ehn”
“Alright, thanks. How’s honorable doing, I mean your KB” she said teasingly.
“My KB is fine o, thanks.
“Good night sis, have a good night rest”
“You too sweetheart, good night”
She ended the call and her mother in-law’s call came through. She asked after her and the baby, she also spoke with her Father in-law too. She thanked them for checking on her.
The next Morning, Wemmy was already running late for her antenatal clinic, she overslept. She dressed up hurriedly and left the house.
Luckily for her Nurse Angel was on duty.
“Good morning my wife”
“Good morning sister in-law”
“Hope you slept well”
“Sure I did, how’s family?”
“We bless God, hope you are hearing from your hubby”
“Yes, he’s doing great, thanks.
After exchanging pleasantries. Nurse Angel settled down to take Wemmy’s vital signs. While she was at it her phone rang.
“Please excuse me, let me pick this call”
“That’s my husband who called, he’s on his way here, he has fever and needs to see a doctor”
“Are you not a nurse? Why can’t you treat him at home”
“Its against the ethics of our job, we can’t treat our families, especially our dear ones”
“Is that so?”
“Yes, I don’t even treat my son, I can only give first aid, then bring him to see a doctor afterwards”
“And why is that?”
“Medically it is believed that emotions can make you make the wrong calls in the course of treating your loved ones”
“I think I agree to that”
“Here he comes” Nurse Angel stood up to acknowledge her husband’s presence.
“I can’t believe this, is this your husband?” Wemmy asked
“Yes he is, you know him?”
“Yes we know each other”
“I FELL IN LOVE!”
“Yes, we know each other, she’s my ex” Emmanuel replied his wife
“Your ex! Wemimo?”
“Wooow! Nurse Angel sighed.
“Is she the sister in-law you’ve been talking about?” Emmanuel asked
“As you can see, she really turned out to be my sister in-law” Nurse Angel replied.
“I still can’t believe this, so Emmanuel is actually your husband?”Wemmy asked in awe.
“You know what, we’ll continue this discussion later. Wemmy you have an antenatal clinic to attend now, while you have to see a doctor” She said pointing to her husband. I’ll get your card now, so you could see a doctor. When you are both through then you two can continue this reunion thing”
Some minutes later, Emmanuel was through. He went to the Nurses station to inform his wife he’s going home.
“Where are you going, won’t you wait for Wemmy”
“I need to rest, I just took injections”
“Go and rest in your car, she’s will soon be through”
“To wait for her? This is awkward, Are you not jealous?”
“Why would I, you are both happily married, so what’s there”
“I’ll wait then” he left the hospital building and stayed in his car.
An hour later, She joined Emmanuel in the parking lots, Nurse Angel gave her the description of his car.
She wasn’t surprised when Nurse Angel told her the model of his car, Emmanuel rides Toyota Prado SUV, apart from the fact that his parents are rich, they also have connection in high places.
She located the car and walked up to him.
“How are you doing?” he asked
“I’m good, hope you are feeling much better”
“Yes, thanks. How’s your husband?”
“You are looking good even with the baby bump”
“Thanks” she smiled, placing her left hand on her baby bump.
“I use to imagine back then how you’ll look when you’re pregnant and my imaginations was right”
“I’m sure you imagined me carrying your baby, right?
“Irony of life” he smiled.
“Hmm, I never knew God had already answered my prayer until today. So Nurse Angel is your wife?. Now I finally have my peace”
“I know you are not happy back then, but as you can see God answered your prayer and gave me a good woman”
“Your wife is wonderful, I’m so glad to know she’s your wife”
“Yes she’s a wonderful woman”
“Let me release you now, so you can go home to rest”
“Ok, take care”
“I guess we’ll be seeing more of each other now”
“You think so?”
“Trust my wife, bye” he said while entering his car.
Wemmy went back to the hospital building to see Nurse Angel before leaving.
“Sister in-law of life! “ Nurse Angel said jokingly.
“Are we still friends?”
“Why not, in fact I’m inviting you over this weekends, we are now family.
“Wemmy hugged her. “You are beautiful inside out, I’m glad I met someone like you.
“Me too, I’ll give you a call later”
Feranmi got himself a small phone. He inserted his sim and called his wife.
“I’m sorry I couldn’t reach you last night, my phone was broken”
“Thessy told me”
“Told you what?” he asked hoping Thessy didn’t say anything about Sewa.
“I called Thessy when I was worried, she told me your phone was faulty”
“Ok” he said and sighed heavily. How’s clinic today?”
“I met Emmanuel”
“Yes but that’s not the dramatic part”
“Now, you are been dramatic Wemmy….
“Okay let me go straight to the point. Emmanuel is Nurse Angel’s husband”
“Are you for real, the same Nurse Angel you use to talk about?
“Yes, She even want us to be family friends”
“Is she not jealous, knowing you are his husband’s ex?”
“That woman is indeed an Angel, it doesn’t bother her a bit”
“I’d love to meet her, she’s so matured”
“You will meet her, don’t worry. She invited me over to her house”
“You can go if you’re comfortable with the idea”
“I’m coming next weekend”
“Great! I’ll be expecting you. She said happily.
“Alright, I’ll talk to you later”
“Feranmi you don’t sound happy, is it because of your phone? ”
“No, I’m fine, enjoy the rest of your day”
“I will, later”
She ended the call still wondering why he sounded down.
“I have to call Thessy too, she must not carry this gist over” She said to herself.
She immediately put a call through to her.
