Part 19
The Complete Woman !
Excelrhymez a.k.a Mummy E

After Marvis left, I thought about all she said and I know she was very correct. And so I asked myself, who is my enemy? What am I against? Who is behind my woes? Indeed I have been praying amiss, and so for the first time I knelt down and prayed differently.

”Dear Lord Jesus, restore my home, rebuke the devourers for my sake. Bring back my husband to me. Save him from the claws of Satan. Bring back my happiness and make me the complete woman that you have made me. In Jesus name”

After the prayer I felt this inner peace within me. All along I have made Marvis my enemy thinking she was the worm in my life. I owe her an apology.

As these thoughts crept through my tiny heart I allowed myself drown in the sleep that came in.

The continuous knocking on the door, brought me back to reality. Whoever it was that was knocking obviously didn’t have plans of leaving soon until I opened the door. And so I grudginly stood up and opened. It was my mom, my dad, my mom inlaw and my father inlaw. I was shocked to see them. I quickly greeted them and allowed them come in quick. The look on daddy’s face shows that he knows about everything.

Me: Welcome mummies and daddies, I must be blessed today receiving my both parents in my house.

Daddy: Cut the pretence Danielle.

I knew there was trouble in the mountain because Dad never calls me Danielle except he is really angry

Daddy: So that boy turned you into his punching bag. You my own daughter. He turned you into a punching bag and you kept it from me. You planned with your mother to keep it from me. Anyway I am not here for plenty talk. Just go pack your things, you are leaving this house today.

Me: Which house ? My husbands house?

Daddy: Which husband? That that that…..infact don’t make me talk just go and pack.

Me: (turned to mummy) Mummy what is daddy saying now? What is going on here. I never said I wanted to leave my husband house na

Mummy: My dear do you remember all I’ve taught you? In this I have no say but you sure do and if you know all I’ve taught you then you know what to do.

Daddy: If you like woman, teach her to die in the hands of a man but I am taking my daughter home today.

I turned and looked at my in-laws, my mom inlaw was crying and I looked at my dad inlaw.

Dad inlaw: Danielle my child, whatever you decide now we will not hold it against you. I know everything my son has been doing to you, even though you never complained I know. I do not know where Isaiah learnt to be a womaniser or how to hit a woman. His mom and I brought him up in the fear of God and I can tell you now that I don’t know what is happening to him.

Me: Daddy what is going on?

Mom inlaw: Your husband has gotten a girl pregnant. He brought her to the house last night and said he will be taking her as his wife. When I asked him about you, he said if you are willing to accept her as your mate then you can stay but if you can’t, then you can go and he will grant you a divorce.

Dad inlaw: We didnt want you to hear this from anyone else that is why we went to see my in-laws to tell them what is happening first before coming over to tell you.

I stood and looked from my mom to my dad and then to my in-laws. I felt nothing, no pain, no sadness no joy nothing. I just stared at them like a zombie. I knew they were waiting for me to say something. Daddy was busy picking some of my things that he could identify and throwing them outside the house. I was lost in my own thought. Here I was calling on God to restore my home few minutes ago, Marvis had told me that I prayed amiss and that’s why God didn’t hear me and here I was praying it right and still its seems things was getting worse.

I turned and looked at mummy as she stood and held me.

Mummy: My child remember that whatever you decide, I will stand by you. Just think well before you decide.

I raised my head up and looked up to heaven. In my mind I asked God, ”Father are you still there?” Just then daddy came out of the room dragging my box. As he was about to step out I held his hands.

Daddy: What? What?/why are you holding my hand? Leave my hand let me take this box down and let’s get out of here. You are my child and I am not tired of caring for you.

I smiled and I gave daddy a tight hug.

Me: Daddy, I am not going to leave my husband.

What I just said landed like a big slap on daddy’s ears.

Daddy: What did you just say?

Me: Daddy I said am not going to leave my husban……

I had not finished the statement before a big slap landed on my face and mummy quickly ran to hold and stop him.

Daddy: That is to correct your brain, because it seems that something has gone wrong with your brains.

My dad has never ever slapped me since I was born, so him slapping me now means he is really angry. But my mind is made up and not even a thousand slaps can change it.

Me: Daddy I’m so sorry, I know you are angry, I have never disobeyed you once in my life but this time I’m sorry. (I broke into tears) I don’t want to leave my husband, I still love him very much, and I don’t want to leave him. I made a promise before man and God that till death do us part, I promised to love him for better for worse, I also made a promise to him on our wedding day that I will be strong for him when he is weak, I will be strong for us. (My mother inlaw and mummy started crying with me). Daddy he looked at my heart and begged me not to leave him no matter what happens, and I made that promise to him.

Daddy: What sort of useless promise is that ? Has he kept any of the promises he made to you?

Me: Daddy I told him I will be strong for us. Isaiah is my husband and I know he loves me. He may be weak now, he may be down now but I believe by Gods grace he will rise again. My night may be dark now but my morning will definitely come, Daddy my husband will come home to me. I know he will.

Daddy: Are you deaf? The man is marrying someone else. Someone who is already pregnant for him. Can’t you use your head?

Me: A man will leave his father and his mother and shall cling to his wife and they shall be one. Haggai had a child for Abraham but was and could never be his wife. Isaiah and I are one, that girl may have his child, but can never be his wife because he already has a wife. The word of God cannot lie, God cannot lie. I trust him and He will never fail me. My husband will come home to me, he will return to me daddy!

I had become exhausted from crying and talking, even Daddy was by now sobbing. He held me close and wept bitterly.

It was a sad and tense atmosphere.


Part 20
The Complete Woman !

Excelrhymez a.k.a Mummy E

My inlaws and parents stayed with me for sometime. Mummy was happy with my decision, finally they prayed with me and left. After they left I couldn’t hold back my tears, I let the tears flow. I picked my Bible and read from psalms.

”I will lift up my eyes to the hills from whence cometh my help, my help comes from the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth,

He said he will not suffer my foot to be moved. The Lord that keeps me will not slumber nor sleep”

As I read the passage I cried like never before.

Me: Oh Lord am so tired, I am so weak, I am so exhausted. Father help me. You are the little hope I have left, without you I will give up. Father help me.

I am weak and weary, I have no strength left in me, I can hold on no longer. I give up in you oh Lord. I give up for you, Jesus hold me strong. It is time for you to arise and do something. Lord do something else I will faint. Please do not let me drown for I am drowning, oh Lord I am drowning. Help me, Jesus help me I am drowning”

As I held onto my Bible crying unto my maker my door flunged open. I thought it was mom or dad or any of my in-laws who forgot something, I raised my head up and he walks in. My husband dragging behind him her box.

Isaiah: Oh thank God you are there, come and take this box inside.

I tried to stand up and then I saw her, she walked in, Sophia. She was smiling. I was in shock. I didn’t understand what was happening.

Isaiah: Are you still standing there, I said come and take this box inside.

I dragged my feet because I was totally confused. I didn’t understand anything. I held the box but could not even pull it.

Isaiah: Make sure to take it to the bedroom, and if any of your things is still in the room please move them away as that room now belongs to me and my new wife.

Me: Wife?

Isaiah: Yes wife! (turns to Sophia) come here baby!

I watched as Sophia walked up to my husband and gave him a kiss right in front of me.

Isaiah: You know Sophia already, well she is my wife now. I married her today at her hometown. If you have any problem with that you can quietly pack your things and leave my house but if you know you can cope then stay.

I was just looking at him. This is just seven months of our marriage and my husband has changed so much.

Isaiah: I hope we are clear Daniella? Anyway I believe your silence means we are. Now take the box inside.

Without saying a word, I picked the box and dragged it into my bedroom, then I began to pack my bags and clothes to the guest room. When I was done picking everything, I dropped my Bible at a corner in the room and I said a short prayer.

Me: Jesus, this is my matrimonial home and this is my bedroom. I leave you here in my bedroom, I cannot fight because am weak and exhausted, fight for me.

I turned and walked away.

I made up my mind not to come out from the room until they leave the parlour, I didnt want to see Sophia. But I was so thirsty, I have tried to wait it but it seems like they will never leave the parlour. And so I had no choice, I had to go and get water from the kitchen.

When passing through the dining I saw Marvis eating apple. I didnt want to say something but I just had to let it out.

Me: Sophia, why? why did you decide to ruin my life and my marriage? What did I ever do to you.

Sophia: I did not ruin anybody’s life o, I’m only living mine.

Me: Sophia you were my friend, my only friend, my church member, my choir member, my friend, my…….

Sophia: Please, please, abeg, enough of this my friend , my friend talk. Who no like better thing? How old are you? You and I who is older?

Me: But Isaiah chose me, Is it my fault that he didnt choose you?

Sophia: He would have chosen me, he would have if you didn’t come from your useless youth service.

Me: But he wasn’t even close to you. He was closer to Marvis than you?

Sophia: Marvis, hahaha, that one does not even stand a chance.

Me: And you made it look like it was Marvis that was the bad person, you were using her phone and you were acting like it was her. You even came to me pretending to be a friend just to gather information from me.

Sophia: You already started suspecting Marvis so it was easy framing her up. After all there was nothing to gain from drawing unecessary suspicion to myself. The opportunity to have Isaiah came to me when Marvis had that accident, I had to call him to come. He came and I quickly saved my number on his phone as Marvis. Am smart right?

Me: Sophia you are wicked!

Sophia: I know I am, but you are foolish, very foolish.

Me: Isaiah is my husband,

Sophia: And he is mine also.

Me: No he is not, he married me.

Sophia: And he married me too. I thought you heard him tell you that few minutes ago.

Me: Sophia, my husband married me in church, before God and before men. Heaven recognises me as his wife, earth recognises me as his wife even hell recognises me as his wife, who recognises you? Your parents, few of your friends? Who else? Even his parents don’t know you. So my dear you are not his wife, you can never be his wife. Know that now.

Sophia: (angrily stands up and gives me a dirty slap) you are stupid. I am his wife and I am carrying his child and I will give birth to this child, his first born child, his heir and the one who will inherit everything he has and will ever have and at the right time we will throw you out of this house and then we will know who is his wife or not…

Me: Sophia you slapped me? Did you just slap me? (I raised my hand to slap her but something stopped me and I dropped my hand and walked away into the kitchen, I was there drinking water when I heard my husband screaming my name. He walked into the kitchen with Sophia who was crying deeply)

Isaiah: You witch, you want to kill my baby, you want to kill my wife?

Before I could have the chance to say anything a big slap landed on my face that sent me to the ground.

Isaiah: Now let me warn you, you must respect my wife in this house and you must do everything she asks you to do if you don’t want war. Do you understand?

I kept quiet.

Isaiah: Do you understand? Answer me before I hit you again.

Me: Yes, yes I do.

Sophia: Honey she has to apologise to me. After insulting and pushing me down she has to apologise.

Isaiah: Yes! Apologise to her. Tell her sorry.

Me: Sophia , sorry!

Sophia held him as if they were new lovers and together they walked away. I quietly went back to my room and cried on my pillows.
