I can’t believe my eyes and I think I am now confused. Very confused.
Opps, emmm, ahhh, ohhh I am sorry ooo, I didn’t mean it sir, or ma as in, kindly have
mercy, oo no please forgive me I’m….,
Sister Hamet was by my side again. She asked me to calm down and she mercifully
gave my stupidity a medical name to excuse my fooling around over and over again
in the last few hours.
Please my sister, rest your head, you know disorientation do occur after mild
concussion, you will need to rest and stop talking. We will explain everything to you
I laid down on the bed but my head was pounding with so many questions. How did
all these happen? what exactly is going on.
Pastor and the man, the acid pouring husband (mind you, he does not look like a
gentle man to me again, I even think his smiles looked sinister, like those serial killers
that will kill fellow human beings while smiling). As soon as they stepped out of the
room, sister Hamet started explaining things for me.
My sister, she began but Pastor Mrs. interjected, her name is sister Joy.
Sister Joy, sister Hamet continued, I came to your house to pick some of the items I
left in the locked room, I was discussing with your husband about how to get the
room cleared so that you can have it to yourselves when I saw you falling into the
We both got you out of the drainage with the help of other men around but you
were screaming abuses on your husband so I asked him to excuse us. I got people
around to escort you to the house but you said you were fine, so we let you be. I told
the men to let you be because I know how embarrassing it is for you. I had to get to
my place at the clinic to change my dress and also attend to some urgent cases at the
After work I came back to check on you, I met your husband at home, he was busy
packing some bags out, I inquired about it, actually thinking you guys were moving
out because you are owing but he told me he was fed up and wanted to send you
I have to explain that medically you were not fit to do any heavy lifting till we check
you and know you have no internal injuries from the fall. I had to make him wake you
up, but that didn’t go well and you fainted.
Seeing that both of you seem to be in a very bad state, I called my driver to pick you
and brought your loads that were already dumped outside the house to the hospital.
I called Pastor and the wife to come pray with you because you were so faint.
Your husband has not visited and I don’t think it is advisable he visits till your health
stabilizes, you really need to rest.
Hmmm, ok that explains how I got to the hospital, but I am still confused on how her
marriage bounce back to good health. So, I asked.
Sister Hamet, thanks so much for the help ma but….
Please you can call me Hamet, from now onwards, I am no more a stranger, we can
be friends, she smiled again, well she was always smiling because her face had this
Sis, I continued, please did you marry two husbands?
Pastor Mrs. chuckled and shook her head, sister Joy, it’s the same husband ooo.
Ahhhh the same man who poured acid on you ma? I was looking at this Hamet of a
lady, she get mind ooo, how can you be living with the man who poured acid on you.
Hmmm don’t let me jump into conclusion again before I make another mess. I
Ohhh, that means he didn’t pour acid on you, it was just a lie.
He actually bathed me with acid not just my face, she shifted the neckline of her
garment to the left and I saw acid scars.
You mean he, as in that same he? I made gestures at the door where the man was
standing a short while ago.
She smiled and said Yes, he.
Pastor Mrs. added, he did not only pour her acid, he locked the bedroom door and
the main door so she can die. That was after he has thrown her phones into the toilet
to ensure she can’t call anyone.
Oh lord have mercy, now I am more confused.
Is she stupid? Have they done some charms that prevented her from leaving him, or
is she one of those that acts like glue to the person they think they love, what of if she wakes up one day to discover his craziness is back and he axed her to pieces this
Seeing my curiosity, Pastor Mrs. added again more intriguing facts.
Her father who was 76years old as at that time could not take the news when it
broke out, he had heart attack, the same day she was scheduled for her second or
Hamet added; Second operation ma, in London central ma
Ahh yes, that same day of her second operation was the day her father died, we
were all afraid to tell her so that she too won’t die same day.
In-fact Pastor had to fly to United Kingdom to see her and prayerfully break the news
to her before she gets wind of it from the press.
Ahhhh, now my mouth was permanently open……
Please sis, tell me now, what really happened? Why are you with him?
Who does not like a good gist?
