Episode 30 (Last Episode).
“Good morning Angel!” My husband’s voice called me out of my sleep. A gentle tap I had gotten familiar with repeated on my arm.
“The only good thing that happened to me in life apart from Jesus, wake up!” He called softly.
I opened my eyes slowly and met his. I smiled tiredly. He bent over and planted a kiss on my forehead.
“It’s 10am Susan!” He said and burst into laughter.
My eyes widened in surprise. My mentor had called promising to visit us.
We just had a baby after two years of our union. Though my mentor had visited several times, today’s visit was official. She was bringing the entire family. Even Ella was bringing her husband with her.
I had told George I would be the one to wake him. We had been talking about my too much sleep. I had promised to wake up earlier and get everything ready for our guests.
Our baby boy was much demanding. Little Anthony was so adorable. But it’s tough being a mother. Especially, when the baby is so tender and needs you to do everything.
I’m so glad my mentor called often, buttressing on the importance of maintaining my relationship with God in the midst of marital responsibilities.
I’ve got to admit, I wasn’t perfect. There were times when my spiritual life seemed to go down and I had good reasons for it. But they were still not an excuse.
Thank God for his mercy and grace that kept me consistent. But being a mom was so new to me.
“Oh no!” I said and tried to get up.
“Calm down Angel! I’ve been so busy in the kitchen. You only need to come and see them downstairs when they arrive”.
I heaved a sigh of relief and smiled at him.
“You’re such a darling!” I said, all smiles.
“You’re welcome”, he replied admist laughter.
“Why are you laughing at me?” I feigned an angry face, because I knew he was laughing at me for oversleeping.
“Do you think it’s easy to give birth to a child that is as handsome as his father?” I asked.
“Oh! Is that true? I’m so sorry. I wasn’t told handsome baby boys make their mummies oversleep!” He said and we both laughed.
I pushed myself into a sitting position. He took my hand and smiled at me.
“So, when would you love to eat?” He asked, obviously to get me reacting.
“See my husband oh! I resemble who wan fast Abi?” I asked rhetorically.
“Okay then, let’s go!” He said grinning and stood up. Taking a few steps towards the door, he turned to look at me, who was still sitting down.
“I’m just too tired to walk”, I complained like a baby.
“Okay! Shall I carry the dinning table to you or carry you to the dinning table?” He asked, putting on a funny look.
I shook my head laughing.
“Between your dinning table and your adorable, exceptionally beautiful loving wife, who deserves a ride in your arms?”
“I prefer to carry my one and only Susan!” He said and came back to carry me. Instead of carrying as expected, he tickled my waists.
I jerked and moved away.
“I said carry me! Not this trouble you are looking for!” I said.
“Perhaps that was a mistake! Come!” He said and made to carry me, but tickled me harder this time.
“Sweet! Stop! I don’t have strength ooh!” I squealed and made to run, but he grabbed my leg and pulled me back.
Though he didn’t tickle me, only threatening to tickle me was enough to get me laughing.
“Stop na!” I pleaded admist laughter.
He was somehow sturborn today.
“Sweet! You know I’m not supposed to laugh too much! My stomach!”
He stopped, but frowned at me.
“Why would you say such a thing? You must laugh for me in this house!”
“Yes sir!” I said giggling, just wishing he would stop tickling me, though a part of me wanted him to continue.
He rose up and made to leave.
“You like rough play too much!” I said.
He turned and smiled.
“Start apologizing now!” He said feigning a serious face.
“Apology my foot!” I dared him.
“What!” He yelled and made to rush at me.
“Please sir! I’m sorry sir!” I apologized immediately, seeing how swift he was to grab me.
“Apologize again!” He demanded.
“But I just did Na!”
“I need another one!”
“I’m not giving you another one. I’m your mentor. I will punish you if you misbehave!” I grinned.
He charged towards me. I threw a pillow at him to distract him and made to climb out of the bed, but he pinned me down.
I squealed and laughed out loud as he tickled me all over.
“Oya sorry!” I apologized, when I couldn’t bear it anymore.
“Say it again!”
“I’m sorry my sweet, sweet George!” I said, my cheeks aching from laughter.
“That’s better!” He said and stood up.
I was so glad my noise didn’t wake the baby. That would mean another round of work.
“Please go and get me the food. I don’t even want you to carry me sef! You like rough play too much!”
George who was already at the door turned and shook his head.
“I’ll pretend I didn’t hear that!” He said and I laughed victoriously.
“Do you think I’m afraid of you? You cannot do anything to me!” I threatened.
He only laughed and left, because it was obvious I wouldn’t allow him to leave.
Soon he came back with a tray in his hands.
“Can you guess what I cooked?” He asked.
George still enjoyed his guessing game and as a good wife, I had learnt to become good at guessing.
Marriage takes one into a life of learning more about your partner. And since that was something he loved, I had to learn it.
“Susan, guess! What did your sweet cook?” He asked.
“Hmmmm! I’m familiar with that smell. That’s the smell of spaghetti. So, my answer is spaghetti!” I answered grinning.
“Who told you to inhale the aroma? You were supposed to cover your nose. That’s examination malpractice”, he replied, causing me to laugh hard.
I made to take up the cutleries, when he told me he was going to feed me
“Yay!” I gave him thumbs up and sat back.
He took a spoon full of the meal and placed it gently in my mouth.
I was still chewing when he brought a larger spoon full and forced it into my mouth.
I grabbed a pillow and hit him with it.
“Is that how to feed your Angel?” I asked.
He laughed and apologized, then continued feeding me.
I was almost done eating when the door bell rang.
They are here. George helped me up to my feet and waited for me as I carried the sleeping baby out of the cot.
We both went downstairs to meet our visitors. It was a great reunion. Ella and her husband, pastor Henry, got married 7 months ago. Her protruding belly proved a baby was on the way. Juliet and her fiancee, Robert. My mentor, Mrs Toyin Abayomi and her husband, Mr Tunde Abayomi were all present.
We were all grateful to God for the reunion. Most importantly, the blessings that came with it.
“George! I can see you are taking good care of my daughter!” Mrs Abayomi said, grinning.
George looked at me and smiled.
“It is the Lord’s doing and it is marvelous in our sight”, he replied.
“When are we expecting the next championship?” Henry asked.
We all burst into laughter.
“Look at this guy oh! We are not done with one tournament. You are already anticipating the next. You no dey pity the goal post wey dey recieve all the shots?” Mr Abayomi said.
“Please! My daughters are not goal posts. They are virtuous women so difficult to find!” Mrs Abayomi said.
“But at least! Virtuous women still win championship Na! Abi wetin be virtue without winning world cup?” Robert said laughing.
“You are there my brother” Henry concurred.
Juliet bad eyed her fiancee, feigning annoyance.
“Hmmmm, bro Robert, this one my daughter is bad eyeing you. Hope you have concluded on how many world cups you guys would be winning?” Mr Abayomi asked and we all laughed.
“Well I’m considering 7 championship!”
“What!” Mrs Abayomi shouted at him and he started laughing.
“I was only joking oooo!” He said admist laughter.
“Don’t turn my girl into a factory oo!” She added.
“Mummy! God will bless you!” Said Ella, grinning.
“Juliet this one you are not saying anything. Hope that was not the agreement?” Henry asked.
“God forbid!” She replied.
Turning to George, he asked.
“So when are we expecting the next baby. I already have a nephew. I also need a niece!” He said and George only grinned.
“The Lord holds our future”, he replied.
“Bros this one no be Bible study. This is world cup!”
“Henry! Leave my sweet for me oh”, I attacked him and everyone burst into laughter.
The chattering went on. Each of us laughing and sharing our experiences with one another.
I cuddled my baby in my arms and looked at his father beside me. His right arm wrapped around me. I smiled and leaned my head on his shoulder.
A few years back, this was the man I wanted to kill. A few years back this was the man I hated so much and called a devil. A few years back, I didn’t care if I go to hell in the process of ending his life.
It’s amazing how God changes the lives of men. From a complete sinner, into a man I loved with all my heart.
The way I loved George, sometimes I had to ask God not to love him more than Jesus. Everyday of my life was like heaven on earth.
Indeed God was merciful. The Susan that left her Jesus behind, seeking for revenge. The Susan that obtained mercy from God and was restored. Then she was sent on a completely different sort of revenge mission.
She was sent to slay with a different kind of sword. A sword that cuts men who are dead in their trespasses, and brings them back to life.
God was indeed so merciful. Here I am today, with my baby boy and the man of my dreams. Surrounded by Abba’s love, so indescribable and overwhelming.
“Daddy! I’m so grateful!” I said inwardly.
“SUSAN! I’M SO PROUD OF YOU! THANK YOU FOR YIELDING TO THE HOLY SPIRIT. YOU HAD A WILL OF YOUR OWN, BUT YOU SUBMITTED IT TO ME.
ONCE AGAIN MY GIRL! I WANT TO SAY, THANK YOU! THANK YOU SO MUCH!”
I smiled and closed my eyes, lost in daddy’s love.
“Daddy! You don’t have to say that! Who am I that you should take knowledge of me?”
“I WILL SAY IT AND SAY IT AGAIN! YOU HAVE MADE ME SO PROUD. I LOVE YOU SO MUCH MY PRINCESS. THANK YOU FOR OBEYING ME. EVEN WHEN YOU WERE CONFUSED.
SUSAN, THOSE DAYS WHEN YOU WERE HUNGRY. YET, YOU NEVER TURNED AWAY FROM ME. THOSE DAYS WHEN YOU WERE SURROUNDED BY TEMPTATION.
YOU WERE TEMPTED TO BETRAY ME AND HAVE FOOD ON YOUR TABLE, BUT YOU CHOSE TO STARVE.
SUSAN, I WAS SO TOUCHED BY THE MEASURE OF LOVE YOU SHOWERED ON ME. HOW COULD THIS GIRL, LOVE ME SO MUCH AND STAND FOR ME?
I WILL HONOUR THEM THAT HONOUR ME. AND I WILL KEEP MY WORD.
SUSAN! THANK YOU! THANKS FOR MAKING DADDY SO PROUD!”
