Nnamdi: I really want to hear you tell me all of it but I will be wait till the next meeting so that you will tell your shameful act to the whole world.
Mama Nnamdi: If that is what you want but atleast give me the chance to tell it to you first.
Nnamdi: Why should I Mama? Why should I?
Mama Nnamdi: Because I am your mother and I will never lie to you.
Nnamdi: did you just say you will never lie to me?
Mama Nnamdi: Yes I just did. Listen Nnamdi, I may have done so many terrible things but no matter what I do, I love you will all my heart and…
Nnamdi: Spare me all the love talk Mama, you lied to me about who I really am and what makes you think I will want to listen to all you have to say.
Mama Nnamdi: because you have the chance to and it is your right.
Nnamdi: Why Mama, why he asked soberly ‘why did you hide this from me all my life’?
Mama Nnamdi: I never wanted you to know the truth because I am afraid of this.
Nnamdi: Of what?
Mama Nnamdi: of you hating me and the truth shattering you.
Nnamdi: but I still have every right to know no matter what. All this while you have hidden what is most important to me and my life. Why Mama, why?
Mama Nnamdi: I do not have any reason to have hidden it from you but the reason I did was so that you could have and live a normal life.
Nnamdi: Whatever Mama, whatever. What you did is so wrong. You have shattered me and my existence.
Mama Nnamdi: I am sorry my son, I really am.
Nnamdi: Does Papa know that I was never his real son, that Obi was and will forever be his real son?
Mama Nnamdi: Not to my knowledge. I do not even know how your brother knew.
Nnamdi: Because Papa told him and he said it was one of the reasons Papa died the way he did.
Mama Nnamdi: ‘I am sorry Nnamdi, I am so sorry. I never knew. Please Forgive me’ she cried.
Nnamdi: Does my real father know that I am his child?
Mama Nnamdi: Wiping the tears in her eyes said ‘yes he knows’.
Nnamdi: ‘You disgust me Mama, you really disgust me’ he said and staggered to his room.
The following day,Obi got dressed and went to pay a visit to Ifeoma who was staying with her mother pending when her case will be over.
Ifeoma: ‘Obi, what are you doing here’ she asked when she asked ushered him into their house while Mama Ifeoma was in the room still sleeping.
Obi: I came to see you and how you are faring.
Ifeoma: We are doing fine but you shouldn’t be here before tongues start wagging, I don’t want more trouble oooo.
Obi: Relax Ifoema, I didn’t come here for anything other than to know how you and everyone including my kids are doing.
Ifeoma: We are doing fine, please sit.
Obi: sat down and looked at how Untidy Ifeoma has been ‘you are not looking too good yourself’.
Ifeoma: I have been through a lot but I will survive.
Obi: I am sorry for all that you are going through because of me.
Ifeoma: it’s not really your fault; I am also to be blamed.
Obi: How are my children and when can I really see them?
Ifeoma: They are in Lagos with a friend of mine. I just want all this to be over and done with.
Obi: it will soon be and don’t worry, your lives will come back together again.
Ifeoma: I hope so oooo.
Obi: Errmm, where is Mama?
Ifeoma: She is still sleeping in her room.
Obi: ‘Alright’ he said and kept quiet.
Ifeoma: Can I ask you a question?
Obi: What is it?
Ifeoma: Did you really have to disgrace your mother like that?
Obi: Did the both of them also have to disgrace you like that?
Ifeoma: I can handle it but I am not sure your mother can. Why did you have to let out her secret?
Obi: I did it so that Nnamdi my brother will know the truth and to be sincere, it was high time the truth be told.
Ifeoma: For how long have you know?
Obi: for a very long time. My dad was actually the person who told me and it made him miserable. I really do not know why he never confronted her.
Ifeoma: Would it have made any difference if he had?
Obi: Yes it would have. My father knew right from the beginning that Nnamdi was never his child but why he kept it secret is a thing I never knew even till this moment and I hope that my mother will at least know.
Ifeoma: Have you asked her?
Obi: I haven’t been able to face any of them since I came home. My mother hates me for revealing her secrets and my brother on the other hand also hates me for sleeping with his wife. I am sort of the bad person here.
Ifeoma: I am sorry for your misfortune.
Obi: its okay, I can handle it.
Ifeoma: I hope you sort out issues with them for they are your family.
Obi: I will but it will take time and you are also my family too.
Ifeoma: you should do and get married oooo.
Obi: I don’t think I want another woman.
Ifeoma: What do you mean? Do you have one already?
Obi: of course I have a woman in my life.
Ifeoma: who is she and where is she from?
Obi: with time, you will know her. How are you going to cope when everything is over?
Ifeoma: I really don’t know but first thing first, I will make sure that my kids are okay wherever they are and I will put myself together and start life all over again.
Obi: in that case, when all this is over, I will let you know who my woman is.
