(Episode 17) Little Voice that feeds us with Thoughts

She said and downed the content of the bottle in one gulp closing her eyes in the process. She winced at how unpleasant the taste of it was but what she did not prepare herself for was the biting pain that followed afterwards. She cringed in pain and held her stomach tightly groaning and rolling on the floor. Sharon heard her from outside the room and knew she had to do something fast. She quickly ran out to seek for help, outside the gate she saw an aboki shoe mender whose help she sought with tears. The man followed her in and somehow they managed to force the door open. They all rushed in with Sandra trailing behind them.

Sharon: “What in the name of the heavens have you done to yourself now Grace?” she asked with tears in her eyes when she saw the bottle of sniper laying opened by her side and the blood which tainted the side of her lips.

Alex: “Mummy! Mummy!” he said rushing to kneel by her side.

Sandra: “My mummy is injured aunty, see the blood on her lips”

Sharon: “Please help me carry her aboki na” she said to shoe mender who stood bemused at the unexpected turn of events for his dull life.

Grace was rushed to Babura General Hospital where she had both of her children at. The doctor in charge gave her an antidote and the effect of the poison was repelled. She laid on bed in the fifth ward which had three other patients. Sharon and her two kids surrounded her bed.

Sharon: “Did you try killing yourself for the love of a man? I am really disappointed in you Grace”

Grace: “Put yourself in my shoes dear, what would you have done?” she replied weakly

Sharon: “I’d have summoned up the courage no matter how difficult it is, not for me but for my children”

Grace: “I know my children are important but I really can’t live without Osi. Oh Osi! Did he really leave me? Bring the letter and read it yourself, maybe I no longer know how to read? You might actually find out that I misread it?” she said even though she knew it was a false hope.

Alex: “Mum but if you die, who will be taking care of I and my sister? Did you say Daddy left us? Why did dad have to leave anyway? Where did he go to?” He reasons above his age. Alex talks more like an adult

Sandra: “Mummy where is my daddy? Did daddy make you sick?”

Grace: “No! Not at all baby girl, your dad did not make me sick, I fell ill on my own”

Sandra: “So where is daddy?”

Grace: “He will be back soon, he went on a journey like he used to sometimes. He will be back honey” she said pulling back the strand of hair hanging loosely down her face. She looked at Sharon and burst into fresh sobs. “I really can’t do this, I can’t…you shouldn’t have saved me, you should have just allowed me to die. Osaze is the only love I have ever known, how do you expect me to live with him gone? He could have just married her here so we can all stay together, I wouldn’t mind he gets himself a second wife, Oh my life!”

Alex: “Mum you have to be brave. My Social Studies teacher told us a story when we were treating Suicide and euthanasia in class. She told us how a lady committed suicide because her husband jilted her. Some months later, other women stepped on her grave to visit the man who never changed even after she had died cos of him. I will just tell you mum, it’s not worth it. You will die and another woman will be made to take care of us, do you know how she will do that? No one can ever be to a child the way his mother is to him. So please live for us mummy! We need you, I do, Sandra does too” he said biting back tears. Sharon was amaze the way Alex spoke. It was as if an Holy Spirit was in him directing his speech.

Sandra: “Yes mummy! I need you too. Please don’t die and stop crying you hear, dad will be back soon” she moved to her mum and wiped the tears that kept streaming down her beautiful face.

Sharon: “I guess your children have said it all and that is all there is to it. Don’t worry my dear, there is light at the end of the tunnel after all God is not asleep. He hears all of your cries, he watches over you with tender care. So don’t worry okay? I guess visiting hours is past now, we have to take our leave. Be strong and courageous woman!” she teased her friend as she piloted the children out of the ward.

She watched as they walked out. She wondered where they got their wisdom from especially Alex. She wondered how a man in his right senses would abandon such adorable children for a mere usurper. The thought of how much he has disappointed her made her heart melt with sadness. What was killing her the most was not the poison she had taken but the fact that she had lived with a weakling and a stranger all her life.

They held hands as they headed for The Abuja International Airport departure lounge. She smiled sweetly at him and her white teeth sparkled under the artificial lights that lined the roof of the waiting lounge.

Zainab: “You told me you weren’t coming, what made you change your mind?”

Osaze: “Well, I don’t know. It’s probably because I cannot bear being apart from you?”

Zainab: “Are you sure?” she grinned sheepishly.

Osaze: “Of course! What man in his right senses will let a woman like you go? You make my world baby, you are everything I have now”

Zainab: “Well that is sweet and romantic. Can’t wait to be wrapped in those arms of yours in the cold winter of London weather. It’s all I have ever dreamed of. So what about your wife? How were you able to convince her?”

Osaze: “I left her a note” he said looking away so she wouldn’t notice the hurt in his eyes but she noticed it anyway.

Zainab: “Hey baby! You made the right choice, your children will grow up thanking you for this. We will come get them very soon to live with us. So don’t even look back at all, I am here for you anytime any day” her voice was like a soothing balm to his troubled, pitiful and wandering soul.

Osaze: “Thanks my heart, I know I can trust you of course”

A Voice on the PA system was heard announcing a 45 minutes delay of the 8 o’clock a.m. flight to London which was their flight. Osaze felt disappointed as he couldn’t wait to be at his destination already. He felt like something might happen which could tamper with his plan. He was that impatient. “Baby… I will be right back okay? Wanna get to the ATM downstairs to recharge my phone”

Zainab: “But we are traveling out already, it will be useless once we get there you know?”

Osaze: “Just wanna make a quick call to a friend, I’d be back sweets” he said stooping down to perch a kiss gently on her inviting lips and walked briskly away.

After recharging at the Fidelity bank ATM machine at the arrival lounge. As he made to turn, he jammed into a man fiddling with his wallet trying to remove his ATM card. It was Dr. Danjuma, the doctor who had just treated his wife in the hospital.

Dr. Danjuma: “Hey Mr. How are you doing? I can still remember you from the time your wife gave birth to your last child”

Osaze: “Oh yeah! I am doing great doctor. How are you too?”

Dr. Danjuma: “I am fine too but what are you doing here?”

Osaze: “I am uhn!” he stuttered

Dr. Danjuma: “Well, I am concerned because I am still on your wife’s case at the hospital”

Osaze: “My wife at the hospital? Why on earth is she at the hospital?”

Dr. Danjuma: “So you didn’t know? I see! Well she drank a poisonous substance, while I checked on her she kept muttering your name. Are you probably leaving the country or going somewhere? Does her taking poison have anything to do with you?” he asked looking intently at him.

Osaze: “Well it is none of your business doctor, just do your job of saving her life” he snapped defensively.

Dr. Danjuma: “Now this just confirmed my fears. No man runs away from his family no matter what. You still have the chance to go back to them. Make things right otherwise you might live to regret your actions later. Don’t forget, family is the only thing which is not vanity in this world, wealth is vanity, and running after strange women at the expense of your family is vanity. Now eloping and leaving your family hanging is cowardice. So please rethink your decision” he said and proceeded to the ATM machine to do what he initially planned to do before bumping into Osaze.

Osaze stood rooted to a spot, jittery with fear at the thought of his wife’s attempted suicide cos of him…

Question: Do you think Osaze will heed to the doctor’s advice? Will he go back home?

  1. I guess he will go back to his if he is wise ni ooo, like seriously no man in his right senses leave a lovely family and chase after shadows,thumbs up adelove

  2. I think his ambitiousness will take the better part of him, he is so selfish and mean,he won’t return to his family.

  3. Hmmnn….Osaze’ll go back home if he didn’t go back to tell Zainab of his intentions. I blame Grace for what she did to herself all bcos of a man. As a matured lady, you just need to let somethings slide in life @ a stage. I had a very similar experience. Maybe someday, i’ll share with Adelovelies. When a man takes this very vital decision, the man is NOT worth to die for. It hurts so much YES! but just try nd move on wth ur life without him.

  4. Good morning adelove and families wat a morning coffee. Osaze wud return home after much thought of what the doctor has said. He will tell his so called devil Zainab abt it and see her reaction..her reaction shud lead him to change his mind or not.

  5. whether he has a rethink or not, he is a non-existent person who couldn’t ever keep to his promises. many often he has failed to make d right decision to d vital decisions dat comes his way. God has always been sparing his life for his family sake, bt he has always fail to see it d moment he recovers. i hope he grabs dis last chance & return to his family b4 he ends his life untimely..

  6. There is a demonic spirit in him that never makes him Straight or positive, he wld battle with the thought of his wife in his mind, but as soon as d devil zainab appears shikena. He wld try hard to fight the thought about his family n move on with zainab.

  7. whether he has a rethink or not, he is a non-existent person who couldn’t ever keep to his promises. many often he has failed to make d right decision to d vital decisions dat comes his way. God has always been sparing his life for his family sake, bt he has always fail to see it d moment he recovers. i hope he grabs dis last chance & return to his family b4 he ends his life untimely..

  8. He might not heed to d doctor advice, I guess his destined to doom and he must accomplish dat…unless he reach his doom he will not av a rethink

  9. He will go back to his family, thank you Jesus for using this doctor to intervene in this family. You are indeed a way maker.
    Good morning folks

  10. I am disappointed with Osaze. He is not man enough. I am sure he will follow that devil and regret his life. May God help him

  11. I pray he listens to the doctors advice. It’s only a coward that behaves d way he did. calling zainab his heart, can u imagine. so Grace is wat den?

  12. I can’t believe grace tried to kill herself all becos of a useless man. I really understand her pains but that doesn’t mean she should commit suicide. I love what alex told his mum so grace has every reason to live ,if not for anything but for her children. But thank God she was saved, and one thing I know for sure is that Zainab will never go away unpunished.

  13. A stray Dog will never hear the whistle of the Hunter, Osaze will still go ahead with the journey thinking he is doing it for his family, but he’ll later lose everything he had ever worked for in his

  14. Osazie won’t change his mind, even if he want to Zainab will surely change his mind. Let him go, so that he will regret his actions.

  15. is better He don’t go because he has caused the damage already, is better he go with zaniab and get what he bargained for and leave innocent grace alone to heal her wound

  16. Osaze doesn’t deserve his wife nor his kids,so I don’t expect him to go back to his family.I want Zainab to teach him a lesson of his life,that is the only way he can change but even at that,i pray it is too late for him.Such weak men will always desert their family any time,any one like Zainab comes their way.My advise to Grace is to be strong and take care of her children,God will surely console her.

  17. I dont tink so bcos Osaze is an indicisive man, a weakling n a fool. He is under d spell of zainab. U cant bet ur money on him cos he is nt a banker. If i were him, i will heed d doctors advice, it is better to b late dan being late.

  18. I hope so…….. Dr. Danjuma: “Now this just confirmed my fears. No man runs
    away from his family no matter what. You still have the chance
    to go back to them. Make things right otherwise you might live
    to regret your actions later. Don’t forget, family is the only thing
    which is not vanity in this world, wealth is vanity, and running
    after strange women at the expense of your family is vanity.
    Now eloping and leaving your family hanging is cowardice. So
    please rethink your decision” he said and proceeded to the ATM
    machine to do what he initially planned to do before bumping
    into Osaze.

  19. Morning ALC&Fs,

    ‘…………..sometimes a man has got to do what he must do……’

    This guy has failed on one thing – putting family first. He has allowed passion for ‘other thing’ becloud his judgement so far.
    It’d be a miracle for Osaze at this point to have a turn around – let hope he does so.
    Watching…….

  20. He will cos he trully love his family dearly is only that his just crazy about zainab in the wrong way he has all that can making what he want to become in life his just not in his right senses now

  21. God is giving him another chance by delaying the flight,this time around he should be wise enough to take the right decision, if he doesn’t he will regret it all through the rest of his life.
    It takes God’s grace to deliver him from the web of Zainab’s beauty.

  22. Osaze will want to change his mind of going back home, but before then zainab will come and meet him at the ATM stand and change his back also tell him its time for their flight. I don’t tink he will go back home

  23. I dont even want him to go bck home, cuz he will go nd cause more pains to Grace, he should go to dat U.K nd let dat devil calling him, deal with him there. If he doesnt go and experience d hell dat awaits him, he wont learn his lessons. He is a dissapointment!

  24. Osaze hear Doctor advice pls, coz there’s noting in London dat u cnt get in Nigeria nd there’s nothing in zainab body o bt deceive

  25. what a timely intervention from Dr. Danjuma. An eye opener for Osas to right all his wrongs, I pray he listens. Thumbs up Adelove, my no 1 blog as the household call it now. Next pls

  26. Grace u don’t need to kill yourself, at least ur lovely kids are there with u he didn’t take them away from u. so be strong for them forget about him, whether he comes back or not that’s his business just hope on God he will see u through

  27. Grace u don’t need to kill yourself, at least ur lovely kids are there with u he didn’t take them away from u. so be strong for them forget about,whither he comes back or not that’s his business just hope on God he will see u through

  28. Osaze will not heed to the doctor’s advice..He is still under a spell and curse..He will never be sound until God intervened on his case..He will be thinking of going back to family ,but merely seeing Zainab’s call and hearing her voice will dash his senses into pieces..He needs spiritual help to be back to his usual self..

  29. Grace u don’t need to kill yourself, at least ur lovely kids are there with u he didn’t take them away from u. so be strong for them forget about,whither he comes back or not that’s his business just hope on God he will see u through

  30. Grace u don’t need to kill yourself, at least ur lovely kids are there with u he didn’t take them away from u. so be strong for them forget about,whither he comes back or not that’s his business just hope on God he will see u through

  31. Grace u don’t need to kill yourself, at least ur lovely kids are there with u he didn’t take them away from u. so be strong for them forget about,whither he comes back or not that’s his business just hope on God he will see u through

  32. Grace u don’t need to kill yourself, at least ur lovely kids are there with u he didn’t take them away from u. so be strong for them forget about,whither he comes back or not that’s his business just hope on God he will see u through

  33. God always av a way of working out things.. The flight was delayed by God so he can get the msg from the doctor.. Now he still has tym to make things right. He’ll go back.

  34. It is true love that makes a woman to die for a man she really love all her life but not like osaze because he did not love what he has not even value the children and if really he has feelings he will just go back to his family than going to tell the devil Zainab but all I know Grace will be fine and stay strong for her kids

  35. I think he will heed d doctor’s advice and head back home. But d man is sha a weakling. If I be Grace ehh…I will so deal with him in a way he will never imagine. Mtchewwwww.

  36. Osazieeee is far gone,, if he can live his lovely family cos of a stranger, I see no reason y he should listen to Dr danjuma ‘s advice. After thinking for sometime, d next thing he will end up saying is but I LOVE ZAINAB. Rubbish

  37. he will Want to change his mind. BT u know nah. madam zainab come and do her own charms to convince him to go with her

    and he will stupidly follow her and regret later

  38. Taking the doctors advise will be the best ever thing that had happen to his life. But refusing to go back will only end his life like a he goat waiting to be killed on xmas day.

  39. Osaze oooo, pls heed to the doctor advice and go back to ur family kus Zainab will just use as a slave over dir and remember dat u can’t raise ur hands to beat a woman ova dir. A word is enough for the wise

  40. Yeapy i guess ryt in d previous episode….. yes osaze will heed to d doctors adviced,nd go bck to his family…zenab mumu fish of a girl,don’t go nd look 4ur own man..b fooling around

  41. Osaze is a weakling,even if he decides to go back just one touch from zainab and his mind is made up. He needs to go and experience that not all that glitters is gold.

  42. Osaze should listen to the doctor’s advice and head home. But I know zainab will still convince him to follow her. Some men are just like osaze who chase shadows leaving their families behind, not knowing that family will always be there even when that shadows leave them. I pray grace should endure and take care of her kids.

  43. The question is, will he has forgive Grace if she was the one during all this? Men need to look beyond wealth before hurting the one person who has giving them her everything she got in life.

  44. I knew it! Hes such a weakling. He would probably not heed to the Drs advice cause he knows his wife survived the attempt and will be closely watched to attempt such again. But he will leave to regret his mistakes. Men!! Sometimes i wonder why they fall prey to devilsh women. There a lot of similar scenerios in the society today.

  45. Grace lost it here, she ought to know dat she has come this far to give up hmmm….. Osaze i greatly pity u if u let ur family go just like dat. Well it isn’t ur fault, lust i leading u now n d best thing x for u to overcome it now dat it’s still early to avoid ‘had i know’

  46. He will not heed to the doctor’s advice, he will still go with zainab but he will regret His decision later…..

  47. Not really sure he will go back to his family because Zainab might pop up behind him and sweep him away from his thought but If Zainab did not pop up behind him, he will heed to the Doctor’s advice and go back to his family. Madly in LUST

  48. I believe he wouldn’t heed to the advice and he wouldn’t go home, because he will still go to Zainab at lounge and leaving zainab there would warrant questions from her that would make him stay with her, except he go home from that ATM

  49. The stupid osaze will not go back home, he is jst after wealth and Zainab will deal wit him, grace I know its really hard but pls don’t kill urself bcos of a man take care of ur kids they needs u and move on without him

  50. ohhhh…I so much love dis story,,can’t wait for d next episode. .love u guys Adelove.
    he will find it difficult… but still he will go back home to his family,, family is everything dear, no matter wat dey do stand by one in time of trouble.hope u see day osas

  51. Osaze is lost and the doctor Danjuma has said his own because the moment he sets his eyes on Zainab in the lounge,all the doctor’s words will fly away. Please Grace snap out of your suicide state and be strong for your kids.

  52. Osaze is Coward personified. Hez making me sick ryt now. Abeg dnt go back jare. Grace will do wonderfully well with her intelligent and brilliant children. It’s ur loss Osaze.

  53. What will make a woman die just because of a man, it does’nt worth it, grace made a mistake trying to kill herself, forgetting her kids. I doubt if osaza will go back home, zainab will try to convince him against it

  54. That’s for him to decide but for me I’m seriously angry. Well, I think he’ll go back to his family except he’s so daft and foolish.

  55. Whatever he wants let him do, thank God grace has been saved, I know she won’t attempt such rubbish again, also let Grace read her Bible and know what the Bible said about suicide

  56. I don’t if he will go bak cos he does not have a mind of his own again even if he goes bak he is not worth the wife again cos he has proven himself once again a selfish, foolish coward.

  57. He won’t, not until zainab hurts him severely that’s when he will realize that there is no institution greater than FAMILY. He needs to be dealt with by zainab. That’s the only thing that would make him value Grace again. Gosh!!!! This osaze is really annoying me, acting like someone under a spell.

  58. Dr Danjuma had injected the right antidote into Osaze system that will subdue all the venomous Zainab had planted in him. He should be ready to go back to his family instead of chasing vanity.that will vanished someday.
