When Lawrence was through with packing the things his wife will be needing at the hospital including her dinner, he told the kids that he is going out. *
Stephen: Kids, I am going out but will be back soon.
Deborah take care of your younger ones especially Eva and make sure you feed her.
Children: yea daddy, bye bye ”
They rushed to the dinning for their dinner.
took his car key and left for the hospital, on the way, he was delayed by serious traffic jam that he couldn’t got to the hospital on time.
After so much delay he finally reached there. when he got inside the ward where is wife was staying, he saw her sitting down on the bed.
Lawrence: Hi “(he said to her)”
Bekmy: hello, good evening.
Lawrence: evening baby girl, how are you doing? hope you are getting better?
Bekky: yes, my God is at work
Lawrence went closer to her, hold her two hands and looked into her eyes “baby, I am really sorry for what happened please forgive me”
Bekky: its alright, I have already forgiven you. Now tell me, how are my little angels at home?
Lawrence: all fine ooh, I just served them dinner before coming here and I am sure that before I come back they must have slept off. Bekky: Wow you cooked?
Lawrence: of course I did, you think I don’t know how to cook?
My dear, this handsome husband of yours is a man with many talent, when I was still in secondary school, I took first in a cooking competition. don’t worry, you will testify yourself by the time you taste this food I brought here.
“hmmmm, this man can lie for Africa oo
The last time I checked, he cannot even cook white rice. who knows the kind of concoction he must have prepared.
God please save my children oh”
“(she murmured to herself).”
Lawrence: you said what? (he asked confused)
Bekky: honey, I said that I can”t wait to eat this food of yours”. (she replied pretending to be excited)!”
Lawrence: That is my baby, let me bring it out and feed you.
Bekky: no no no love, just help me keep it over there, I will eat when I have taken my drugs, just go home and stay with the kids OK?
Lawrence: Alright, if you say so, take good care of yourself for me, I love you” Bekky: I love you more and please you need to wake up latest 4am in the morning to cook and prepare the kids for school, there are some cloths in the basket please help me wash them and you will see a piece of paper I kept on the table inside our room, its a list of the things you will help me buy from the market and according to the food time table, you will have to prepare white yam and egg sauce for breakfast, spaghetti for the kids to take to school, beans and plantain for lunch and jellof rice for dinner and again please help me clean the house and sweep the compound. that will be all for now. Thank You.
By the time Bekky finished listing the things to be done by her husband, she looked up only to see Lawrence standing like a mango tree with his mouth wide open.
Bekky: Honey are you alright? (she asked pretending to be concerned)”.
Lawrence: yes I am fine, its nothing.
“hmm, this work is a bit too much for me oh but its not that much and I need to prove to her that being a housewife is no big deal”
(He said to himself).
“dear I will be on my way now”
Bekky: oh wait sweety, please don’t forget to go get the kids from school before 4pm and wash their school uniform when they are back. Thank you.
Lawrence just turned and walked out without saying anything else while Bekky burst into laughter when she was sure he was out.
Bekky: don’t worry, by the time you finished house chores tomorrow, you will learn your lesson in a hard way….
She put her hand under the bed and brought out the food she was eating before she
saw Lawrence coming and hide it.
When Lawrence got home, he was already very tired and all he wanted was just to
climb the bed and sleep, he went inside the house and heard Eva crying, he rushed
to where her voice was coming from only to see Eva on her own pool of faeces and
every where was smelling bad.
Lawrence: Deborah! Deborah!
Deborah: yes daddy,” (she answered inside the toilet)
Lawrence: where are you and why did you leave Eva here crying?
Deborah: daddy I am inside the toilet ooh, I am purging.
Lawrence: and where is Wally?
Deborah:”inside in your room”
Lawrence left Eva who was still crying and rushed inside his room to know what junior was doing there
“where is that boy?
Wally: yes daddy * (he answered faintly from the toilet inside their room)”
Lawrence: what are you doing inside there
Wally: haaa daddy isn’t it obvious that the poison you served us is at work? we have been purging for the past 30mins”… Lawrence hissed and went out of the room.
He took a good look at Eva who was still on the ground crying,
“a lot of things to be done this night before I would sleep, God help me”
He carried Eva to the bathroom and bath her when he finished he raised her up and unfortunately for him, baby Eva baptised his face with another round of faeces” Lawrence: oh my God! this girl has killed me today oh! “(he drop her on the ground not minding that she was crying). He used water and washed his face very well and pick the crying baby from the ground, bath her again, changed her cloth before going to clean the faeces on the floor, by the time he was through, the kids were out of the toilet looking like people who just finished a marathon race. he gave gave them medicine that will stop them from purging and it stopped!”
