As Florence walked into the room, she met Tade on the floor prostrating…

“Babe, I don’t know what came over me, I am not myself anymore, especially when I am around Josephine”

“You are not yourself? Didn’t I tell you not to let her stay, but you refused”

“I am ready to tell everyone to go, I had a dream, and I saw someone who represented God and that lady who runs Lighthouse Academy Madam Favour walking into our house. The elderly man told me that before he can do anything in our house, we have to send everyone out”

“Madam Favour? I also had a dream and Gbemi mentioned her name in that dream”

“Are you serious? What was the dream?”


Tade, Florence and Gbemi were seated in Aunty Favour’s office

“The two dreams mean the same things, by allowing third parties into your home, you have brought in contention, hatred and a whole lot. Bible says ‘A man shall leave his father and mother and cleave unto his wife. Marriage is between a man & a woman, your home should not be an extension of your parents’ marriage, which is part of what I can say is the Genesis of your marriage.

Mr Tade, you said you can trace this whole thing to the way your wife wants to have things done, the way her mother taught and likewise you as well, wanting to do things the way your mum also taught you…

No! Your marriage is different from your parents’ marriage. If using Sugar is causing rift in your family because of different background beliefs, then switch to Honey or another form of sweetener that work for your family.


“About the dream you had MrTade, the elderly man is God, and the reason why you saw me bringing him into your house is because Gbemi and I prayed that the prince of peace should visit your home and heal your marriage, but unfortunately God could not do anything because you had people who had no business to be in your house present there…

Can you read this popular scripture for me…

“Matt 21:12”

Tade brought out his phone and read

“And Jesus entered the temple and drove out all those who were buying and selling in the temple, and over turned the tables of the money changers and the seats of those who were selling doves”

“My sister can you read Matt 9: 23-25”

Florence also checked through her phone she read from NIV

“When Jesus entered the synagogue leader’s house and saw the noisy crowd and people playing pipes, he said, “Go away. The girl is not dead but asleep” But they laughed at him. After the crowd had put outside, he went in and took the girl by the hand and she got up”

“Mr & Mrs Oluwagbemi, the only third party allowed in your home is God, Bible says a three fold cord can not be easily broken. You, your partner and God should be what holds your family. Just like you have read in those two scriptures, God does not like unwanted crowd when God wanted to raise the girl, he sent the third parties out of the room, and another gospel gives us more details that it was only the mother, father and the disciples that were with him in the room.

The disciples there represents ministers or counselors like me who can join their faith with you to agree”

“ Hmm…I have a question?”

“Please shoot”

“What if my mother is old & Sickly and needs to stay with me, is she a third party?”

“What if my mother is old & sickly and needs to stay with me, is she a third party?”

“There are ways to that, at that point your mom is not agile to cause trouble, you can take care of her in your home, and if it even becomes a problem in the marriage, you can rent a small apartment close to you and employ a nurse or maid to be with her, while you check on her daily…”


“So Mr & Mrs Oluwagbemi, it is time to physically & Spiritually put out the crowd from your home…”


“You are joking, I am not going anywhere” Josephine said. “Look into my eyes Tade, and tell me to leave”

“He doesn’t have to look you in the eyes, I am his wife and we are one, so whatever I say, he is the the one saying it, Josephine we want you out of our house. Is that not so Tade?”

“Yes!” Tade replied without looking up

“Ok! I will leave, but you both will regret it, I promise”


“So you both sat here in the room without coming to my defense, you brought me here to face ridicule, you both will suffer nemesis”

“Josephine, this is not our fault, you stepped out of line, you rushed things too much. You should have been patient before sleeping with Tade”

“No problem, Alatise lo mo atise ara e” ( I know how best to fight for my self).

Josephine placed her hand on the wall and something paranormal entered the wall of the bedroom.

She pulled her bag and left the room. On her way out she ensured she touched the wall of the living room as well and deposited something there.

“Thank you for treating me like a devil, the only person that treated me like human is Temi” She walked towards Temi, took her hand and held her tightly transferring power into her. Temi as a result staggered a little.

Josephine whispered as she hugged her.

“Continue from where I stopped”


Temi is walking towards the master bedroom, she stands by the door trying to eavesdrops on Florence & Tade.

“Now that Josephine is gone, how do we tell our mothers to leave” Florence asked

“There is no big deal, we will rent a shortlet apartment for mummy for the remaing days she has for her training and I will send my mum & Gbemi back home. Gbemi is on our side, so convincing mum wouldn’t be a problem”

Temi laughed at their naivety and she thought within

“Too late Oga, we are still here for a long time”

Temi knocked at the door

” Who is there?”

“Temi Sir”

Florence went to open the door…


“Sorry ma, your mummy and Oga’s mummy are very sick”


Florence and Tade rushed out, they first stopped at Tade’s mum’s room, she was shivering badly…

“Maami, what is wrong?”

“I don’t know, I just felt a cold chill all of a sudden”

“Let’s get you to the hospital”

“This is not hospital matter, let me go home and attend to myself”

Gbemi, Florence and Tade exchanged looks.

“Yes you will go home, but not like this”

A loud sound like someone throwing up called their attention to Florence mum’s room’

Florence rushed to her mum’s room and found her mum on the floor throwing up into a small waste bin…

“Florence, take me to the nearest hospital, don’t let me die here”

By this time Tade was in the room too.

“Tade, forgive me for everything I have been doing to you, please don’t let me die, take me to a hospital close by”

“Yes mum”


Temi is seated in the living room discussing with Josephine.

“I have been able to extend my stay for a few more weeks. I believe their hospital stay should take about two weeks”

“Well done, I will ruin Tade that money would be once upon a time for him. He will spend all that he has on different type of ailments ranging from unexplainable headaches, stomach ache, Ulcer, spinal cord problem, back pain, swollen feet even to cancer ”

“Yes ma”

Josephine suddenly perceives a smell…

“They are close by… Well done once again. Continue the good job and be sure I will put in a good word for you with your Queen Mother Tunmise to hasten your eye-opening ceremony.”

“Thank you senior” Temi said with more determination to do more evil to Tade and Florence. She stood up and rushed to the kitchen to prepare another sickness infused meal of hers.
