dedicated to all my whatsapp friends
I don’t know what I have gotten
myself into, I really don’t know why
everything has turned out to be like
this? Why’s Nora this way? Why’s she
treating me like this? Oh God! At least,
you know all things, I’m too sure that
you’ve known all this would happen
from the scratch, why did you take
Gloria away from me! Why!
At least if I had known everything
would turn out this way, would hsve
adopted celibacy. I would! Why did she
sleep in another room? There’s no
honeymoon, nothing, just nothing! I
What will I do? Will this marriage
continue this way, lord? Will it?
Daniel, only God knows what else that
I have done to him. I know I ought not
to hug Alex, but, he hugged another lady
too now. Daniel actually did! Why am I
facing the music now? Why?
I was afraid of sleeping beside him
the night of our wedding, what if he
woke up and sent me out of the room?
Honestly, I can’t just comprehend this.
Why is he not talking to me? He’s been
taciturn as if we’ve been in this issue for
years. This is his car following mine, I
knw he didn’t eat that food, he didn’t
ask me why I couldn’t sleep beside him,

“Surprise!” Tonia grinned as she
Nora was shocked. She took a close
look before he beam turned to a sudden
grin and rushed toward Tonia. “Sister
Tonia.” She hugged her tight with smiles
all over her face.
“How are you dear?” Tonia grinned as
she pulled her cheeks.
“I’m doing good, ma.” She continued
“I’m sure you’re good. I’m sure my
brother would have given you a nice
treat enough for you to forget your
Her grin turned to a faint smile and
she nodded. “You never told me you’d
come here for church service, Sis.”
“Don’t mind us. I even came with Mum
and Daniel’s younger brother.” She said.
“Really?” Nora smiled. “Where’s
Mum?” She enquired.
“She’s inside the auditorium, just to
surprise you, dear.” She pulled her
“Thanks so much sister.” Nora said.
“But where’s your husband? Why
didn’t you two come together in the
“Urgh… your brother?” Nora chuckled.
“He said would come in his own car,
don’t mind him.” She smiled.
“Hmmn… Alright, he shouldn’t come
late because the other couple that wants
to have their thanksgiving are already in
church and the service starts soon.”
Nora nodded and smiled. “Alright,
would call him.” She said.
“Good. Come inside soon.” Tonia
tapped her shoulder and walked inside
As soon as she walked inside, Nora
looked around why is he not yet here?
She wondered and sighed.

Daniel parked his car at the front of
the Church and came down. He adjusted
his blazer and pressed his lips together.
His eyes caught that of Nora who had
been waiting for him out there for some
minutes. He had gone to get something
One thing he really hated was playing
wih his stomach. He preffered eating to
any other thing apart from his life. He
would always say when there’s no food,
there’s no life.
Why did he take his eyes off now? He
doesn’t want to see me right? Nora had
thought as she motioned inside the
church. She just neglected me, she’s
leaving angrily. Daniel heaved a sigh
before he walked inside the Church too.

Daniel was glad everything went well
in Church. The thoughts had been a
burden to him earlier, brewing if the
Church wouldn’t know of the problem
he had gotten himself into.
He had stepped out of the room and
met another served food on the dining
set. He just stared at it and didn’t know
if it’d be a problem once eaten. He didn’t
want what would crush his marriage
early, but this problem was a great
factor that could ruin his marriage.
As he thudded down the sofa in the
living room and tuned the television set,
his phone buzzed and he reached for it.
“Mart man, how far now?” He said with
“Really? King’s Place? On my way.” He
grinned as he sprung up to his feet.
Nora rushed out of the room. She just
remembered that she had to see a
movie by 4pm. She halted as she saw
Daniel and looked as if she just saw a
ghost, surprised and shocked.
Daniel didn’t even look at her before
he rushed to the room to make a
change of clothing and rushed to meet
his friend- Martins at King’s Place.
