The Complete Woman!
And that is how a strange woman took over my home, cooking for my husband and sleeping on my matrimonial bed. To make things worse Isaiah gave her the right to insult me. One evening I was in the sitting room watching a movie when they both walked in. This so called Chi Chi girl asked me to stand up from my seat. I just stared at her, because there were other seats in the house yet she insisted on taking mine.
Me: Chi Chi there are empty seats in this parlour, please seat on any one of them.
Chi Chi: I saw them before I chose this one, so stand up I want to sit.
I took a look at my husband thinking and hoping he would say something. Of course he did say something.
Isaiah: You heard the lady, please stand up and let her sit, we want to watch a program.
And without arguing I stood up and went to the visitors room which had now become my new room.
Few minutes later I heard my husband calling out for me, and I went to him.
Isaiah: I want you to take this money, go to that shop opposite this house and get us cold drinks. My baby and I are very thirsty.
I took another look at Isaiah, I still couldn’t believe its the same man I married that was doing all of this. However I collected the money and I went out to buy the drinks for them. When I came back I gave them the drinks and went back into my new room.
The sound of their loud laughter did not even let me rest. Few minutes later I heard them moaning and kissing. I had to press the pillow against my head. This was too much for me to bear. Isaiah was making love to that whore on our matrimonial bed.
I picked a bag and I wanted to just pack my things and leave. But then I started remembering all that mummy told me on how to be a complete woman. I fell on my bed, picked up my Bible and started reading. I cried as I read through the book of Psalm 24.
”Lord how they’ve increased, that trouble me, many are those that rise up against me, many there be which say of my soul. There is no help for him in God, but thou oh Lord, art a shield for me, my glory. You lift my head”
Me: (crying)/oh Lord enough of this pains, please lift my head. Lift my head from this pain, from this shame. Lift my head oh Lord…..
I was still crying and praying when I heard him calling out my name. I quickly stood up. Wiped my tears and ran to him. They were both up from the bed and she was tieing my wrapper on her chest. This is a new wrapper that mummy bought for me and she was tieing it on. My husband was on boxers. I looked at them, and refused to let my tears fall before them.
Isaiah: Please dear, we messed up the sheets. Kindly pack them and wash it for us please. I want it dried up so that we can use it at night. Thank you so much.
He bent and gave me a kiss on my cheeks then held her on her waist and they both laughed out of the room. I turned and watched them walk away. I wanted to break down and cry, I wanted to end everything, I wanted to fall down. But I heard the small still voice telling me. ”Be strong” I immediately turned and packed up the sheets and went into the bathroom to wash them.
I soon became a slave in my own house. My own husband turned me into a slave. Apart from washing and cleaning the house for them. He sometimes invites me into the room to watch as he makes love to that strange woman. In all of this I remained calm and faithful and a good wife.
One evening, I heard them fighting.
Chi Chi: Where do you think you are going? You think you will leave now because she is back? You go no where.
Isaiah: You are stupid. I told you before all of this that my woman is not around and that once she is back our deal is over, didnt I tell you?
Chi Chi: And so what if you told me that. Listen you go no where, our deal is supposed to last for one more week. So if you think you are gonna leave me for one crazy bitch then you obviously don’t know who I am.
Isaiah: Listen I will pay you off. I never knew she would return this early. I thought she would return next month, she was supposed to be away for six months but now that things are like this we have to reschedule.
Chi Chi: I don’t even really care whether you go to her or not, but if you must go, you will pay me my full money as agreed. Don’t you think because the deal ended you will cut my money no way.
Isaiah: Is that all? Don’t worry I will pay you. But please pack up and leave. I must hurry to my baby.
I just sat in my room and listened to all my husband was saying. Referring to another woman as baby. I know he was talking about Marvis. No wonder he came home, Marvis travelled. No wonder. I came out of the room and sat on the dining chair. I watched as Chi Chi packed her things from my bedroom. I watched my husband count a whooping sum of 70,000 naira for that girl.
Isaiah: I hope we are good now?
Chi Chi: (smiling) of course we are.
As she made way to leave she suddenly turned faced me.
Chi Chi: I apologise for everything that happened this last few months, you must understand that am only doing business, I need the money to survive me and my younger ones. So whatever I did do not take it to heart. It’s part of the job. Sorry….
Then she turned to isaiah,
Chi Chi: I wonder what you saw in that girl, what’s her name again, is it Marvis or what? You have a good wife, a very good one at that, you have a great family, but you are destroying it with your own hands. You better realize yourself fast and stop making this good woman suffer.
Isaiah: Get out joor, have I not paid you? See this prostitute want to advice me. Idiot.
Chi Chi: I don talk finish o.
She turned and left. Not long, Isaiah picked some clothes and the car keys and also left.
The Complete Woman!
Three days of a lonely house, three days of quietness, three days of me, myself and my God. I remained in the visitors room because I do not want to provoke my husband by moving to out bedroom.
In this three days I decided to call unto God to break every chain holding my husband down. And every strange woman holding him with strange powers should release him by the power in the name of Jesus.
I informed mummy to join me in the three days fast. And she did without coming over to my place. I felt a peace I’ve never felt before at the end of the prayer and I heard God speak to me for the first time. And he said, ”STAND STILL AND KNOW THAT I AM GOD, I WILL REBUKE THE DEVOURER FOR YOUR SAKE”
I jumped up and I began to appreciate God for his love and mercy in my life and for answering all my prayers.
The next day been a Saturday, I was trying to iron the clothes I would wear to church tomorrow. Its been a while since I went to church and now that I wanna go I want to look my best. Then the door bell rang. I got up to open and see who was there.
Lo and behold, it was she, the devil herself!
I began to plead the blood of Jesus over me as she tried to step in. I stopped her from coming in. She smiled and looked at me.
Me: Marvis what do you want? What are you doing in my home.
Marvis: Can I come in?
Me: No you can’t Marvis state your mission and leave. If you came to look for my husband, (I made sure I stressed the husband to her hearing) yes! That’s right, if you came to look for my husband then am sorry he is not at home. But of course you should know where he is.
Marvis: Dani I did not come here for your husband, I came here to see you. And not because anyone asked me to but because its what I wanted to do.
Me: Why? After housing and taking my husband away you still have the guts to come over to my house? For what?
Listen let me tell you Marvis, he is my husband, mine do you hear that mine and no one can take him away from me you hear that? You can only be his concubine and that’s what you will ever be. But let me tell you that in this that you are doing there is God watching us and in his time he release his judgement. Now leave my house
Marvis: Dani relax and keep quiet you don’t know anything. All you know how to do is rant. Rant that does not carry weight.
Me: Marvis leave my house I’ve heard.
Surprisingly Marvis pushed me from the door and bounced into the house as if she had the house more than myself.
Marvis: Abeg leave my way joor. Listen let me tell you. If I wanted your husband you won’t be able to stop me. And nothing you do will stop me.but I dont want your husband. Yes I did like him before but I’m done with him.
I came here to inform you that I’m no longer interested in him.
I watched as Marvis moved around my house staring from the photo on the wall to the furniture’s and everything.
Me: Marvis what do you want from me? Please leave my house I was busy before you came in.
Marvis: Do you know your problem? Your problem is your pride. You are so filled with pride and that is what will destroy you.
Me: Thank you Marvis, please go.
Marvis: I’ve been watching you from afar. And I have seen how you’ve tried to settle this thing on your own. I’ve also seen how you’ve failed, I’ve seen how your husband, your so called Isaiah how he treats you, I have seen how he disrespects you and it sometimes excites me to watch you suffer.
Me: Marvis what did I ever do to you? Why do you hate me so much like this? You are so bent on destroying my husband, my marriage and my happiness, why? What did I ever do to you? Isaiah chose me over you why won’t you just accept it like that? Why?
Marvis looked at me in a very pitiful way that I myself became confused.
Marvis: So you really think I am still crazy over your husband. You think I am in love with him. So you didn’t understand when I said I was done with him? Let me spill it out in a much clearer way to you. I am done with Isaiah. God works in a very mysterious way you know? When Isaiah chose you I almost lost
my mind because I so much believed that he was meant for me. I cried and almost went mad. I thought of so many evil ways to hurt you. But I realized I couldn’t do anything to you because I was not that kind of a person. It was your thought on my head that made me have that accident on my way home from your wedding.
Me: I would have preferred you hurt me Marvis than all you’ve done to me. You stole my husband from me, right from my wedding day, and you kept him with you for days when I was supposed to be on my honey moon. (Starts crying) Marvis that is the most wicked thing you could ever do to any woman.
Marvis: Honestly speaking ehn, I enjoy seeing you suffer and cry like this, you know why? Because you are so stupid. You are very very stupid. You still believe even up till this point that I am the one destroying your home. Then you are even more stupid than I thought.
I didnt understand what she was trying to say so I just stared at her.
Marvis: For months now I have watched you cry and shout my name and honestly I didn’t care one bit, so long you were suffering. I was done with you and your husband the minute he put that ring on your stupid finger. I cried to God to help me and give me my own man. The thought of you and him made me hit my car on my way home and I know you won’t believe me but I don’t know who called your husband from your honeymoon. I know he came that night and I also know he left that same night. What gave me the greatest surprise was when your mom called me asking of him. I immediately knew that your man had not returned home from that night, and so to hurt you I played along and told your mom he was sleeping in my house.
Me: What are you trying to say?
Marvis: Am telling you that you’ve been praying amiss and calling the wrong name to God stupid!
I have nothing to do with your husband, infact since my accident I haven’t set my eyes on him.
Me: I dont believe you, why are you now coming to tell me now?
Marvis: If you like you believe me or not I don’t really care. And I am telling you now because God has heard my cry and given me my own man and He has told me I must let you know the truth in order for me to be happy in my own relationship and that is why I am telling you.
You need to pray it right. When you keep attacking God with the wrong prayers, He just sits and watched you. God has given us wisdom but we fail to use it and so when we do stupid things He just sits and watch us and hopes that we realizes soon and seek His help in the right way.
Most Christians make this mistake everyday, we know that God is not a killer yet we pray for him to kill for us how do you think he will answer that prayer? The Bible says God rejoices over the repentance of a sinner, yet we go ahead and pray that God kills that sinner how do you believe he will answer.
Aunty B is hurting you, yet you keep praying for aunty A to be disgraced and exposed how do you think God will answer. Sometimes we should learn to pray right. If you don’t know what you are fighting against simply pray and say God help me, deliver me, save my marriage. Don’t be specific in something you are not sure of.
I watched as Marvis preached to me, I saw how serious she was. I didn’t want to believe she was innocent after all. But something kept telling me she was telling the truth.
Marvis: Sister Dani, I am not the enemy of your home. I was a broken hearted frustrated sister I wanted you to feel hurt but not like this. Not in the way you’ve felt it. Watching you suffer was my delight but I didn’t cause your suffering. I am sorry I kept quiet for this long, I just didn’t think it was my business to tell you.
Me: If what you are saying is the truth? Then how about those calls, you called him severally, you texted him, I saw the name.
Me: You saw the name, did you confirm the number?
I became so confused as I stared at her.
Me: If its not you, then who?/who is destroying my home?
Marvis: (smiles) that is something you are going to have to find out yourself. Seek God and you will find Him. Get your prayers right. (She walks away and I stood there dumbfounded watching her leave)
Do you think Marvis is saying the truth?
The next Episode will reveal that.
