🍒 FUMMI 🍒
So you’re trying to tell me The traditional marriage would hold at Abia state ? I asked my friend .
” Yes …we are going to do everything in her father’s family house there ” she said with a beautiful smile.
” Does your husband know already that she’s pregnant ? I asked.
” No ” she answered as she rubbed her neck nervously .
” The problem is not only my husband , but his elder sister , she’s not fund of Yoruba people …I don’t want her ruining the wedding with her drama ” she complained .
” Ah. … maybe she’s not heard that we right against flesh and blood , look at our faces …there’s no joy oh ….untill all the 3 boys have tied their knots ” Bummi said as she grinned at us .
” So we’re traveling to Abia ? That’s gonna be fun ….”
” Are the foreigners gonna come ? She asked .
” Yup …a lot of foreigners at that , due to who Richie and Dera are …in the entertainment industry .
” I think we should tell your husband though ….we don’t want him reacting at the Wedding day …now do we ? I asked .
” I think you’re right , I’d talk to Dera about it ” she grinned .
” Hey ladies ” Richie greeted immediately he walked in with some shopping bags .
” You went shopping ? I asked.
” Nope Dera went shopping for me …I was at the airport , went to welcome my friends ” he grinned.
” Waoh they’ve arrived already ? I asked suprised.
” They wanna be here through it all ” he said with a chuckle .
” Your fiancee is gonna tell her Dad today that she’s pregnant ” I said and he stopped laughing immediately.
” Wait what ? And she didn’t tell me ? fv¢k ” he cursed .
” Language young man ” I frowned .
” I understand ” he gave a nod .
I pat his back with a gentle smile.
” Where are you off to ? I asked with the way he rushed out of the house
” I’d be back soon ” he said and hurried off .
” Why is he running like he’s been chased ? His dad asked walking in.
” It’s nothing my love ” I said smiling innocently .
” I pray so ” he said arms folded .
” Why are you looking at me like that ? I whinned.
” I’m scared of whatever it is you’re planning ” he fired .
” I’m not planning anything ”
” Hehehehe as long as it’s the woman I’ve been married to for more than 25 years ….then you’re definitely planning something ” he grinned.
” I’m not planning anything ,not untill we get to the east Sha ”
” You’d do no such thing ”
” Did she say we’re doing anything ? My sister asked
” So help me God ”

” Am I mad ….? Did I say anything ? He asked the guy’s and they laughed.
” Thank God my wife is close to her due date …I mean …she packed into the toilet this few days and gladly told me she wants to start sleeping there …I nearly died ” he said adding to the laughter.

” You’re away from your Dera today ? He teased me .
” She didn’t even tell me she’d be telling her Dad today …I just hope it runs smoothly , I’m worried about my baby ” I said and everyone burst into laughter.
” Baby hehehehe ”
” Heard her mom was strict. How come it’s her Dad now ? Kira asked .
” Well her mom is strict but Her Dad is more strict when it comes to morals .
” And you just had to knock her up Richa-rd ” Manuel said.

🍒CHI DERA 🍒
I rubbed my forehead tiredly as I paced around the room .
” Hehehehe ….” My Twin brother laughed on the chair making me glare at him .
” Nonso you’re Annoying ! I spat .
” I know twinnie …but I didn’t advice you to get knocked up … that’s what too much m…ha-rder causes ” he said and laughed .

” Is not gonna happen anytime soon …Chi ” he grinned
” Dera ” mom said as she walked downstairs with Dad behind .

” Chidera ! He called
” Daddy ” I said as I bowed immediately .
I noticed mom rub his tense shoulders .
” You told me your fiance is coming to see our family and the ummuna’s so why am I hearing you’re pregnant ” he asked .
I opened my mouth to talk but …words couldn’t come out .
” Dad …..I don’t regret the life growing inside of me , but I’m sorry …for being a dissappointment …I know … ” I trailed as I cried .
” I had no Complains about your choice of work …I let you be independent and live in a foreign country and you got knocked up ? Whilst nonso refuses to take over the family business ” Dad snapped .
” Dad. …” Nonso whinned .
” Me chionu there ” mom scolded .
” I’m only letting everything slide because Richa-rds father is my good friend …else I’d have dealt with the both of you ! He scolded .
” I’m sorry ” I said sincerely .
” Tell them to prepare I’d make sure my kinsmen bill you guys well after this …..” He trailed.
” Una go here am ” nonso laughed in pigin .
” Shut up ” i scolded as I threw a cushion at him mom laughed at our banter .
If Dad reacts like this , how would his sister react ?
Plus she hates yoruba people …. we’ve never agreed oh … and now I fell inlove with a Yoruba guy …
Double wahala .
Since our wedding for next week mom and Dad decided it was best to go down to Abia state …first ….to await the groom and his people .
” Richa-rd Bamidele ? Isn’t that a Yoruba name ? My father’s sister asked walking towards us with the wedding card .
” Huh ….? Mom pretended not to here her .
” So Ujunwa ?this is what you have planned with your daughter Ehn ? she asked dramatically.
” Aunty ….’ I trailed .
“C’mon keep Quiet …look at you ..? All the rich handsome Capable young men you did not see 1. ..it his in Yoruba land you saw a man qua ? She asked in typical ibo intonation .
” Richa-rd and I love each other ?
” You’re still has spoilt as I remember ! She scolded in ibo .
I just ignored her knowing just how dramatic she can get …I didn’t want her getting any sign of my pregnancy since it’s not yet as hu-ge . ..
” And you nonso …I’d introduce you to the beautiful girls here …you nee-d to get married …I don’t understand how you can do guy without a wife by your side. …..all those mami water girls would be walking in and out of your ….secret Chambers …” She said and nonso burst out laughing on the couch .
” Although I’m still mad at you …, I would over look because I’m sure that your innocence is still intact ” she said and this time even mom laughed.
” Keep on dreaming…” Nonso cursed in French .
” So you now speak in the white mans language ? She asked
” No Aunty ” he said immediately .
“The groom’s family would be coming to see us for the first traditional meeting of the two families ” Dad said coming Down again with a list .
” So you’re in support of the marriage to the Yoruba man ? She asked her brother immediately.
” Sister I don’t understand ” Dad frowned .
” What do you mean by you don’t understand ? Can’t you choose a proper groom for you daughter ….what had civilization turned this world into ? If all our siblings didn’t die ? …..they’d have definitely knocked some s£nse into your block head ” she said Angrily .
” What has tribe got to do with two people who are madly in love ?
” Love doesn’t care the …tribe race or ..status. ….it just comes …” He said and smiled at me .
” I love you Dad ” I mouthed .
” That was exactly what you said when you married Ujunwa then s£nt all your children over to obodo oyibo …what has happened now ? She asked Angrily .
” Nothing has happened…. Eliza …you’re being extremely mean right now , I’d really appreciate it if you don’t show this your character to our guests ” mom said .
” Uju are you talking to me ? As long as I’m in this house ….my niece would not marry a Yoruba man let them come ” she said Angrily.
” What sought of wahala is this one ? Who did I offend ? I wondered .
Aunt Did not show up on the say Richie and his parents showed up with his people to meet my Dad and his brothers .
His Dad did most of the talking and introduction …before they went ahead and asked if I knew him .
I said yes …to which they proceeded to talk about the bride price .
Richie kept eyeing me, his mom noticed that and pulled his ear .
” Ouch ” he’d [email protected]
” My friend don’t distract us ” his Dad scolded and everyone chuckled .
🍒 RICHIE 🍒
” Are we paying the bride price Today ? I asked my Dad as the drivers drove into Dera’s compound and he chuckled .
” Nope we’re just going over to Meet the umana’s ” he said.
” Wait who’s that ? Feyi asked confused .
” Well you see they’re the bride’s extended family and her known as the umana’s traditionally .
” But I thought we already did that the other day …in her father’s compound ? When you told him we where in his compound to pluck the ripe mango ? Clark asked .
” We’re still gonna restate our purpose for being in there compound again and ….. finalize everything .
