I rushed ONYINYE’s door, and there he was on his bended knees with his face downwards and a beautiful rose flower in his right hand.
I looked at him with pity that I went and dragged him up.
ONYINYE came out from the kitchen to enjoy the drama with us.
She handed over my house keys that I left on her cushion.
I opened the door and REX, and I went inside immediately.
When we entered the sitting room, he hugged me in tears.
We both started crying in each other’s arms.
He gently dragged me to the closest cushion and carried me on his laps.
“I’m sorry pretty; I will never treat you the way I did. The truth is; I’m so ashamed of myself right now. I hope our unborn child will forgive me for treating you the way I did”.
“I’m sorry sweet, maybe I was a little arrogant and didn’t feel the pressure you were facing at that moment. I promise to always understand you in your days of confusion and anger. I missed you so much”.
We both kissed and kissed and kissed.
“I love you Ucee! And not even the devil can change that”.
“I love you too.”
He took me into my bedroom, we packed some clothes and left for his house.
We spent the whole day in each other’s arms.
He was thrilled that I was carrying his child.
He stripped me off house chores and tedious exercises.
I got my pampering back.
But he wasn’t happy with my choice of work.
I convinced him that we don’t work too stressful in my department before he allowed me to continue.
To cut a long story short; He went with his kinsmen the next week and concluded the marriage rites.
Winnie! You need to see the video of our wedding party.
It was fun and fun and fun.
When mummy got to know that I was pregnant already, she felt disappointed, but she didn’t judge me.
Look at me now; I’m pregnant with my second child.
“OMG! Winnie, I will join you soon let me check my food on fire”, Ucee said as she stood up and walked to the kitchen.
“Hmmm…. Nwanyi afo ukwu (Big belle Woman),” I exclaimed.
She laughed aloud.
But she came back after 10 minutes.
“So Ucee, what happened to David and his cohorts?”
“Winnie dear, after the judgment in court, he was sentenced to two years imprisonment with hard labor, Richard got a fine which REX paid for, and Gina was released with conditions.”
“Wow! This your story is really nice. It will encourage so many ladies out there,” I said.
“Yes Winnie, that’s your job to do. You need to tell them everything I have told you on how to attract and keep a man of your choice. REX is rich, and he’s the dream of every woman, but there are things you need to know that will attract such men and equally keep them.”
“Hmmm…Thank you so much Mrs. REX”.
We both laughed at my last statement.
“I should be on my way now!”
“Alright Winnie, I know you will marry a man even wealthier than my husband because you have what they are looking for.”
“Hahahahaha, Thank you, ma’am.”
And I left MRS. BRENDA UCHECHUKWU ANYIAM’s house.
