Kemi: Even at that Mami, you shoudnt have slapped her, she is a married woman for God’s sake.
Mami: And so? So I can’t bring her back to her senses?
Kemi: By slapping her? Mami it is obvious you don’t like her but she is married already to Ayo and why don’t you learn to please accept her for who she is.
Mami: Accept her for who she is? She is not a nice person oooo. she wants to eat where she has not sown.
Kemi: Mami please learn to live in peace and take her just the way she is.
Mami: Come Kemi, whose side are you on?
Kemi: I am on your side Mami but then…
Mami: Eh eh! Don’t give me any sermon just clear the table and go and wash the dishes.
Kemi: Yes Mami but please take it easy.
Mami: Take what easy? She has not seen anything yet.
Kemi: ‘Hmmmm…okay ooo. I don’t like the tension in this house’ she said as she cleared the table.
Mami: Well, what can I say but welcome on board.
When Ayo returned from work, Mami quickly went to him before he entered his room and requested for his attention.
Ayo: What happened today again Mami because I know that this one you didn’t allow me settle in, something must have happened.
Mami: talk to your wife Ayo for I will not have her disrespect me in a very rude manner while I am in my own son’s house.
Ayo: What happened today again he asked as Kemi stepped into the sitting room ‘ Ah! Kemi, when did you get here and why didn’t you tell me you were coming?
Kemi: Good day brother, sorry I didn’t inform you earlier. I thought of surprising you.
Ayo: Hahaaha…. This is your own kind of surprise abi? Anyway, welcome to my house and how is school?
Kemi: ‘School is very fine’ she said smiling.
Ayo: Good to know.Turning to Mami he said ‘Ermmm Mami, what were you saying again?
Mami: I said you should talk to your wife for she was disrespectful and rude to me.
Ayo: rude to you as in how?
Kemi: she walked away from Mami while she was talking to her.
Ayo: She didn’t do that, No! I don’t believe that.
Kemi: She did Brother because I was there when it happened.
Ayo: Hmmm, What really happened?
Kemi: ‘Nothing much except that Mami was reprimanding her and she walked away’ she said while Mami kept mute nodding her head.
Ayo: ‘I am sorry Mami and I will talk to her’ he said and went to his room.
Adaobi: Welcome honey, how was work?
Ayo: How could you be so disrespectful to my mother, how could you walk away from her while she was talking to you? What has come over you?
Adaobi: Don’t you dare scream or shout at me today Ayo, I won’t have it from you today.
Adaobi: You heard me Ayo, you heard me and I am not going to go out there and apologize for anything, I did nothing wrong.
Ayo: What has come over you? Why do you hate my mother so much?
Adaobi: Is that what she told you, that I hate her?
Ayo: It seems so to be because everytime I come home, I get news from her everyday about your behavior towards her.
Adaobi: Really? Have you ever asked me what happened? Everytime you come back from work, your mother feed you with all her lies and stories and instead of you to ask me what happened, you don’t, you side her without asking of my own side of the story.
Ayo: What are you talking about?
Adaobi: What you understand Ayo because I am really beginning to feel like we are not couples or partners.
Ayo: What do you mean? Of course we are husband and wife.
Adaobi: And are you not supposed to listen to your wife and all I have to say? Is my say or decision not important?
Ayo: I don’t understand what you are saying? You know you are important to me.
Adaobi: Then why don’t I feel like it these past days?
Ayo: What are you talking about; you are getting me confused with all these sayings of yours.
Adaobi: I feel like this our relationship does not involve only you and me, it involves your mother, me and you. Is that how it is supposed to be?
Ayo: ‘I am sorry if you are feeling that way’ he said as he walked to her and held her hands ‘you know that you are important to me and you and Kunle are the most priceless people in my life right now’.
Adaobi: Then learn to listen and ask me questions before jumping into conclusion.
Ayo: Yes! Yes! Yes! I am so sorry for that. I haven’t really been asking you what happened but you should know that my mother is all that I have got, she brought me up and made me what I am today. I don’t just like seeing her upset.
Adaobi: I know and God knows that I love her as much as you do but it shouldn’t make you turn a blind eye to her faults too.
Ayo: I know and I know that my mother can be difficult sometimes but you have to try and accept her the way she is.
Adaobi: I know that! That is why I am over looking her shortcoming.
Ayo: but you didn’t have to walk away from her while she was talking to you.
Adaobi: I know and I am very sorry but she didn’t also have to slap me the way she did.
Ayo: She did what?
Adaobi: Slapped me!
