Bekky knows that anytime her husband behaves like that no need pleading with him because it will be definitely falling on deaf ears, she went inside the kitchen
and started preparing the egusi soup. when the food was done she went ahead and serve it and left to call her husband.
Bekky: Sir, I am done with the food, its now on the dinning” (she told her husband who was busy with his laptop).
Lawrence closed his laptop and left for the dinning, he ate to his satisfaction and came back to the room.
He met Bekky already asleep.
He started touching her. in the process he woke her up.
Bekky: What is it again? can’t I rest in this house, am I the first woman to ever get married? must I say it before you know how tired I am, or did you think that I never get tired? please I beg you with the name of God to leave me alone. Lawrence: baby please let’s do it OK? after that you will go and sleep and I will not disturb you again I promise.
Bekky: You will not disturb me again? alright Mr . take a look at the time, its 11:45 already all because I was trying to be a good servant by preparing another dinner for my master who never have pity on his servant, by 4am the servant will still have to wake up for another day full of work without rest, while the master will be sleeping like a dead lion, please let me be.
Lawrence: you don’t go to work so how then will you be working all day without rest. my friend fulfil your obligation as a wife, what is your problem?
Bekky: please dear let’s leave it till tomorrow. I am too tired for this, I can’t do it
Lawrence: you do not have a choice dear” (he started touching her again and Bekky let him have his way with her).
4am in the morning Bekky was already awake and started with her normal routine, when she came back from taking the kids to school, she met her husband still at home so she decided to use the opportunity and discuss something with him. .
Bekky: love please I want to beg you for something.
Lawrence: “what is it” (he asked nonchalantly).
Bekky: please I need a washing machine, at least to reduce the house chores .
Lawrence: What for? isn’t it enough that you are not working? now you need a washing machine, soon it will be a cooking machine,the one you will be telling what to cook and it will be doing it for you. so that you can always sit with those big mouth friends of yours and be gossiping God knows what.
Bekky, washing clothes is part of your duty as a wife so do it but if you have money for the so called washing machine, you can buy it but do not use it to wash my clothes.
Bekky: honey, you know I can’t afford it that is why I come to you for help. Lawrence: if you know you can’t afford it then continue using your hands. woman disturb me not please, as you can see, am already late for work.
Bekky: Alright, but don’t forget that I am a graduate and I still have my certificate, since this is how you decided to be treating me, I will start to look for a job. just take a good look at me, is this woman here the beautiful lady you got married to? since I stopped working, you have turned me into a maid that you can be ordering around anytime and anyhow you like. yet you don’t ever get satisfied.
Lawrence: continue talking nonsense for all I care, just don’t waste your time looking for a job unless you wanted to dare me. this discussion is over!
When Lawrence left for work, Bekky went on her knees in prayers, letting her tears flow freely
Bekky: God I know you can see all that is happening. do I really deserve this Lord”
(she started singing).
Kabi O o si o Kabi O o si.
You are the king of heaven and the earth
Kabi O o si o Kabi O o si.
Bekky sang like her life depend on it
” Lord all I ask for is for you to change my husband’s attitude towards me in Jesus name” Bekky heard someone said “Amen”
She turned to see who said it.
“oh my Goodness!
who am I seeing?”(she exclaimed).
