Kehinde tried all she could for three days to find out the location of where Ayo could be and to know if he is alright but didn’t succeed. She went to Ayo’s mother to know whether her son has called her or If she has heard from him but she said she hasn’t and also asked Kemi if she knew where Ayo could be but she too wasn’t able to help.
Mami: What happened my daughter, ever since I told you to deliver the food to him, you haven’t told me how everything went. What did you guys talk about?
Kehinde: Nothing serious Mami, we didn’t discuss anything personal.
Mami: Did you guys have any misunderstanding?
Kehinde: No Mami, why did you ask?
Mami: because he hasn’t called me to thank me and it’s been three days already. Do you know that I went out of my way to prepare that special meal for him?
Kehinde: Ermmm, he was so happy when he saw the meal you gave to him.
Kehinde: Yes Mami.
Mami: But why haven’t I heard from him?
Kehinde: I don’t know Mami, I don’t know. I am really worried about him.
Mami: ‘What do you mean you are worried……..just then, a call came in’ she picked it and said Yes hello, who is this?
Ayo: Hello Mami, it is Ayo.
Mami: Ah Ayo my son, I was just asking Kehinde about you, are you okay?
Ayo: Yes Mami, I am okay, I just called to say hello.
Mami: Really, okay thank you but won’t you speak with Kehinde and why are you calling with a strange number?
Ayo: ‘My phone has been switched off and say me hi to her for I am in a hurry, Bye’ he cut the line.
Mami: This one he cut the line on me, hope all is well.
Kehinde: is that my Ayo, what did he say and is he okay?
Mami: Young lady, which one is, is that Ayo? I thought you two are in good terms, what is wrong with you are why are you panicking?
Kehinde: Mami, was that Ayo and is he okay?
Mami: Yes he is okay and what is wrong?
Kehinde: Mami, I did something very wrong to him.
Mami: What did you do?
Kehinde: I drugged him thinking that I could take advantage of him but it didn’t work.
Mami: I don’t understand, what do you mean you drugged him, how? Where? When?
Kehinde: told him all that transpired with them when she went to deliver the food, how she drugged him and how she failed at her attempt.
Mami: Ah! You drugged my son, what if you had killed him?
Kehinde: I know what I did was wrong and I am so sorry Mami, I don’t know what to do again. Infact, I don’t think I can stand him for what I did was so shameful because I was so desperate.
Mami: Hmmm, to think that I was even the one that said you should get pregnant for him at all cost, I am to be blamed. I hope he gets to forgive us if he finds out the truth and that is if he hasn’t found out already.
Kehinde: Mami, what do I do now?
Mami: I don’t know my child, I will give him some time to get himself and probably get over his anger and after that I will have a talk with him.
Kehinde: Okay Mami.
Two months later, Ayo paid a visit to his mother accompanied by Adaobi for she called her to inform him that he will be coming after so many persuasion from his mother. Mami also called Kehinde to come to the house for her son was coming to pay them a visit.
Ayo: ‘Good day Mami’ he said as he entered the house.
Adaobi: Good day Mami.
Mami: ignored Adaobi and hugged his son ‘My son, welcome home, it’s been a long time.
Kemi: Brother Welcome.
Kehinde: ‘Welcome Ayo’ she said with head bent.
Ayo: ignored Kehinde’s greeting and asked Kemi ‘How is studies Kemi?
Kemi: Fine brother.
Ayo: Sweetheart, Please make yourself at home he told her and she sat down beside him. Turning to Mami he asked ‘Why is Kehinde here today again?
Mami: Just because you two had a little disagreement doesn’t mean she is now the enemy na, the enemy is the one beside you.
Ayo: Hmmm is that why you told me to come here? To listen to this rubbish talk?
Mami: Rubbish ke? When has my talk become rubbish in your ears?
Ayo: Mami, if not because you are my mother, I would have cut ties with all that you did to me. Did you know that because of this your motherly love and advice, I would have died?
Mami: Died ke? How do you mean?
Ayo: did you know that food was drugged by her?
Mami: she is sorry; she never meant me any harm. She told me all about it.
Ayo: Is that all you will say Mami?
Mami: What more can I say if not that and to even think of it, I am partly to be blamed for it.
Ayo: Well, since you decided to go against all odd to drug me, I decided to go against all odd to get married.
Mami: No you won’t get married to this woman here, no way.
Ayo: if that is the case, there is nothing you can do about it now.
Kehinde: Ayo I am very sorry, what I did to you was wrong.
Ayo: You should be and you are forgiven but from now on, I don’t want to see you in my house, office or any- where close to my family.
Kehinde: Ayo Please! Lets forget the past and move on.
Ayo: That is exactly what I am doing, moving on and forgetting the past otherwise, I would have locked you up for what you did.
Kehinde: Give me a second chance let’s get to know each other better for I promise to be the best wife and a good friend ever.
Ayo: I wish but that won’t be possible ever again.
Mami: Ever again, why? Why can’t you just forgive, forget and move on with her, she is sorry na.
Ayo: Anyway, I didn’t come here to talk about this, in fact, I wouldn’t want to come here for a very long time if not because my sweetheart here told me to and since I am here, it’s better we all know what needs to be known.
Mami: What is that?
Ayo: Meet your new daughter in-law and Kemi your new sister in-law. It’s your decision if you want to accept her with your whole heart or not.
Mami: Have you done the needful?
Ayo: Yes I have since you were not in support; I felt there was no need to get you involved.
Kemi: Welcome to the family.
Adaobi: Thank you.
Mami: I thought I was so important, how could you take such a drastic decision without telling me?
Ayo: You already know why I did and if you won’t accept her for my sake then be ready to lose a son for she is carrying your grandchild already.
Mami: Hmmm…looking at them for a few minutes and remained quiet.
Kehinde: ‘No! Mami, say something, say something please’ she said crying.
Mami: My hands are tied but since they are already married and expecting my grandchild, you are welcome to the family my child.
Adaobi: Thank you Mami.
Kehinde: NO!No!No! She said and left the house quickly.
Mami: ‘I hope I will be given a second chance to be the mother you desire? I am sorry for everything’ she said and hugged her and smiled wickedly.
