Mama Ifeoma: Tukiafwa! My daughter cannot remain married to you oooo, God forbid.
Nnamdi: look Mama, I am very sorry for all that has happened to your daughter but I am here to make amends, just give me one more chance and I promise to make everything right.
Mama Ifeoma: Are you deaf, didn’t you hear what I said ‘she shouted’.
Nnamdi: Mama it’s me oooo, your son in-law. We can resolve any issues we have.
Mama Ifeoma: which son in-law, which son in-law? She shouted
Nnamdi: Mama Please, it is Nnamdi begging you he said still standing by the door side.
Mama Ifeoma: Nnamdi or whatever you call yourself, My daughter is no longer interested in this marriage.
Nnamdi: Mama Please.
Mama Nnamdi: Don’t please me my friend, don’t you know you are an Osu and you are a slave. People like my daughter do not and will never have anything to do with you.
Nnamdi: But we are married Mama.
Mama Nnamdi: A marriage that was based on lies?
Nnamdi: she is still my wife.
Mama Ifeoma: as far as I am concerned, that marriage has ended.
Nnmadi: Mama Please.
Mama Ifeoma: Don’t you know the tradition Nnamdi, don’t you.
Nnmadi: That is just a stupid tradition and it will not hold.
Mama Ifeoma: Oh! So it is just a stupid tradition yet you brought your wife to the village for her to be disgraced ? For her to follow the tradition and custom of our land abi? Now that it is the other way round, it has become a stupid tradition. Anyway, it is that same stupid tradition you made my wife answer to, you will have to answer to too.
Nnamdi: I am sorry, I did what I did in moment of anger.
Mama Ifeoma: I am also sorry Nnamdi for what you did because it finally revealed the truth of who you really are. You wanted to disgrace my daughter but ended up disgracing you and your whole family. You can’t impregnate a woman, you mother had an affair and you are the product of that an affair with an Osu. Chei! You see yourself?
Nnamdi: Mama please let me see my wife, I am sure we can resolve anything.
Mama Ifeoma: you must be insane to think that she can come back to you. After the elders have finalized their decision, my people are coming to return back the bride price. We no do again.
Nnamdi: seeing that his mother in-law is bent on him not seeing his wife, called out to her ‘Ifeoma! Ifeoma! Ifeoma’!
Ifeoma: who was in the bedroom, let what she was dong to see Nnamdi ‘ Mama please let me talk to Nnamdi’ she pleaded.
Mama Ifeoma: ‘the better you let him know where he stands in your life, the better for all of us’ she said as she went back inside the house while she stepped out with Nnamdi.
Ifeoma: what do you want?
Nnamdi: I came to see you and to know how you are faring.
Ifeoma: I am doing okay and thank you, you should never have come here.
Nnamdi: I came to see my wife and I wanted to really know if you are okay.
Ifeoma: now that you can see I am okay, can you start going to your place now, you are not welcomed here.
Nnamdi: Yea, I can see that.
Ifeoma: Sorry, not my fault.
Nnamdi: I know. I am really sorry for all that I have done and brought to our family.
Ifeoma: is okay, I have forgiven you a long time ago. You have a lot on your plate right now.
Nnamdi: Yea I really do. You say you have forgiven me?
Ifeoma: yes I have for my own peace of mind and you should also forgive me also for not telling you the truth about our children.
Nnamdi: it’s a bitter pill to swallow but I believe that with time, I will learn to let it go.
Ifeoma: Alright and thanks.
Nnamdi: Actually Ifeoma, I know that things are rough with us but can we still be a couple again, after all this?
Ifeoma: I am sorry but I accepted the fact that things are never going to be the same with us.
Nnamdi: we can try, we can make it work.
Ifeoma: I don’t want to try or make anything work, I just want to have my life back and move on.
Nnamdi: Please Ifeoma, give me a chance to be the husband you desire.
Ifeoma: Why Nnamdi, why?
Nnamdi: because I believe in second chance.
Ifeoma: is that the real reason why you want us to be a family again?
Ifeoma: even when you know the real father of your children?
Nnamdi: Yes and I believe we can move pass that.
Ifeoma: I am sorry, I can’t do it.
Nnamdi: you don’t want our family to be whole again?
Ifeoma: of course I really want our family to be whole again but what I do not want is to remain married to a selfish man like you.
Nnamdi: what do you mean?
Ifeoma: you think I do not know what you are trying to do Nnamdi? So because you found out that you can’t father a child and you are an Osu, you want me to come back to you?
Nnamdi: it is not that.
Ifeoma: don’t lie to me Nnamdi, don’t lie to me. If you are really sincere I may have taught about us having a second chance and moving on with our lives but when I put two and two together, I found out that you will never change. You are the most selfish man I have ever met and I am done with this marriage.
Nnamdi: Please Ifeoma, it is not what you think.
Ifeoma: Really, you are here because the judgment may not walk in your favor and you are infertile. Isn’t it?
Nnamdi: Ifeoma please, let’s work things out.
Ifeoma: like my mother said, the bride price will be returned after judgment has been passed. I am no longer interested in this marriage.
Nnamdi: we can work things out; I will be a better husband.
Ifeoma: ‘I have made up my mind and there is nothing anyone can do about it’ she said and was about walking away, Nnamdi asked.
Nnamdi: are you in love with my brother?
Ifeoma: she turned back and said ‘I think I have had enough already with your family’.
Nnamdi: I am still your husband and I will not accept the return of the bride price.
Ifeoma: ‘see you in few days for us to know what next Nnamdi’ she said and walked away.
Nnamdi: became very furious and said ‘I am still your husband Ifeoma and our Kids will remain mine no matter what you hear me, no matter what. I do not care what the final judgment will be’ he shouted.
Question: Do you think they deserve each other?
