Part 9
The Complete Woman !

The next few weeks was heaven on earth. My husband and I started a fresh honeymoon in our house. He was so nice and caring and I was the happiest woman on earth. I have totally forgotten about all that transpired on my wedding night.

Isaiah was the best thing that any woman could pray for. He was involved in everything in the house. Cooking, washing, everything and he didn’t even allow me go out alone. In the evening time, we would sing and play. Life was just beautiful.

Me: Honey. It s exactly a month since our wedding, and we are going back to church by Sunday how do you feel?

Isaiah: (sitting up) Baby, I actually wanted us to talk about that.

Me: What is it dear.

Isaiah: Baby, I don’t want us to go back to that church.

Me: What? I I I don’t get you.

Isaiah: I said I don’t want us to go back to that church.

Me: (burst out laughing because it sounded funny) dear, sorry am laughing am just trying to understand what you mean. How can you just wake up and say you want us to stop church. The church where you and I met, the church that supported our wedding and the church that wedded us, you just want us to stop, just like that?

Isaiah: Baby, I know the church did all of this for us and I will be forever grateful to papa and mama. But I think its time we left the church.

I studied my husband for sometime and I realized he wasn’t joking. So I sat up.

Me: Baby you are not joking I can see that. Now tell me one, (I raised my one finger to make sure he understood me) just one reason why you want us to stop and I will not argue. I will just follow you.

Isaiah: Sweetheart the truth is, I don’t know. I don’t have any reason, I only know I don’t want to go there anymore. My spirit is no more there, something feels odd there, I just don’t want to be there anymore.

I looked mockingly at him before lying down on his legs again.

Me: Baby, relax, you are feeling this way today. On Sunday after papa’s message trust me you will feel better. Am sure you are just tired that why you are talking like this.

Isaiah didn’t argue. Instead he raised one of our songs and then we sang together.

My mind quickly went back to what he said about stopping church. I started thinking of many reasons why my husband would want to stop church.

Me: (could it be because of Marvis, is he thinking of going back to her? I quickly wiped the thought of my head. My husband is a good man and will not go back to that witch)

Sunday finally came and I was excited. Its the first time I’d be going to church with my husband. I was singing joyfully as I hurriedly got things ready. When I finished dressing I went to the sitting room to see if my husband was ready. Surprisingly he was there sitting and watching TV.

Me: Honey, you are not ready?

He kept quiet.

Me: Honey I am talking to you, why ain’t you ready, don’t you want to go to church?

Isaiah: No I don’t,

Me: Honey don’t say that, why won’t you go to church. Please go and get dressed am waiting for you.

Isaiah: Honey, honestly i don’t want to go to that church again please.

Me: Baby , (I said rubbing his head) let’s go today, just today and I promise you that after the service if you still feel like this, then we will stop.

Isaiah: No no

Me: Baby please (I said in the most loving way ever, knowing fully well that he can’t say no to me) Baby please….. (I bent and gave him a kiss on his lips)

Isaiah was not ready to go to church but for my sake he got ready and reluctantly followed.


The service was beautiful, once in a while I took a glance at my husband and I caught him severally smiling as papa blasted on the topic ”LOVE”.

At the end of the service, different members of the choir came to shake hands with us. I saw sister Marvis walking up to shake hands too but I quickly blocked her way.

Me: What do you want?

Marvis: I only wanted to welcome you guys back to church.

I looked at her and imagined what could have given her such guts to be able to approach me

Me: Sister Marvis, thank you so much for welcoming us back to church. You can now go.

Marvis: Let me at least shake hands with Brother Isaiah.

The way she said the Brother Isaiah drew out all the anger in me and I felt like tearing her to pieces. But I remembered what mummy taught me that sometimes silence is the best punishment to offer. And so I kept silent, but my looks said it all, and Sister Marvis turned and walked away, raising her hands in surrender!

That evening, I asked Isaiah if he still felt like leaving the church.

Isaiah: With a message like that? No way, I am going no where.

I bursted out laughing

Me: but I told you so.

And just then his phone rang, I sat up to listen. Ever since my wedding night incident I get alert whenever I hear his phone ring.

Isaiah: Hello, yes, you are onto Isaiah, who is this please? Really? (He was smiling) okay! No problem. I’d be there.

At the sound of I’d be there my mood and expression changed.

Me: Honey who was that?

Isaiah: Babe God is good.

Me: All the time, but what is it?

Isaiah: Our music was shortlisted among the 10best gospel songs for 2018. And we have to join the competition to win a grand award of 10million naira and a chance to record abroad with popular gospel artist TRAVIS GREENE!

Me: oh my God! (I started jumping and shouting, and then I noticed he was putting on his trousers and shirt. I quickly stopped) Babes, are you going out?

Isaiah: yes but not far! Just our junction here. I need to rush out to pick the letter of our short listing.

Me: Bu bu bu…..

Isaiah felt the fear in my voice and then he placed his hands on my shoulders.

Isaiah: Dow worry babe. I will be back before you know it.

Me: But can’t I go with you?

Isaiah: sweetie, relax, I will be back soon okay!

I nodded sadly, I was scared again. I watched as he walked away and only one prayer was in my heart.

”Lord bring him home safely to me”
