HE SAID NO

EPISODE 15

 

 

“Hmmm, sounds like a sequel to mine, when did this happen?” Grace said while Amifel threw some chin-chin into her mouth before she answered her,

“I had the dream on the night after my last date with George, that should be about ten days now, ”

“Wow, were you thinking about George or what?”

“I wouldn’t say I was thinking about him, I was so tired of the whole thing that I sincerely poured my heart out to God when I got home that night and that was what followed,”

“Wow, that was powerful,”

“Believe me Grace, for the first time in months, I felt lighter when I woke up, “ Amifel said,

“That is really amazing, I know how it feels to have my burdens lifted. I’m really happy to hear this, so what’s the action plan now? “

“Well, God told me that he would fix this. So, I think my action plan is to be still and watch God work it out,”

“Hmmm, don’t you think you are trying to shy away from what you ought to do,” Grace asked as she laid on her side,

“You know, at first I felt that way too until George started pulling some funny stunts,” Grace seemed a bit puzzled as Amifel took a sip from her

malt before she continued, ‘George has started acting funny,”

“What do you mean by funny?”

“He has been acting weird of late, at first I thought it was because of the argument we had the last time, ”

“You guys fought?”

“Not exactly, it was nothing serious, He has stopped calling, and the last time I called him, he sounded like he didn’t want to talk to me. Even when I sent him a text some days later, he responded with syllables,”

“Do you want him back?” Grace asked, looking intently at her,

“Of course not,” Amifel shrugged, “But even if I am backing out of this relationship, it’s not out of hate and I still want him to be fine and that was why I tried to reach him, more so, we have not had a formal break up and I don’t want him to hold me responsible for this,”

“Oh-oh, If I get you well, you are trying to play the victim, ”

“Don’t talk like that Grace, I owe him an apology or at least an explanation,”

“That God said no is enough explanation to pull the trigger and let this go,” Grace said as she gave a light clap, already getting pissed,

“You are too blunt Grace, it’s not that easy, I still care about him,”

“Amifel, in my own opinion, I would advise that you leave him alone, you said it yourself that God told you he would help you out and it is glaring that help has come now, “ she paused a bit to

look at Amifel’s countenance, “Let him be, “

“Okay,” Amifel said, “It’s not that I want him back anyway, I want this done with soon but I just don’t want him to think I am jilting him,”

“Since you don’t want to tell him upfront, its better you let him think what he wants. You have you head to save here girl and don’t even talk about being selfish, ”

“Okay Grace, I totally get you, thank you.”

“And if for any reason, you call him again or you guys get back together, please don’t tell me about it, “Grace said as she stood up,

“I won’t ma, ” Amifel said with a smirk,

“You won’t, to which one?” Grace said, raising her arms akimbo,

“I don’t get you, ” Amifel was baffled,

“You won’t call him or you won’t tell me?” Amifel laughed heartily before she answered her, “I won’t call him, ”

“Better, do you care for rice? I’m starving,” Grace said, drawing a curtain on the conversation.

“What stew did you make?”

“Chicken,”

“I’m in abeg, “Amifel said as Grace headed for the kitchen to start cooking, the petite kitchen was neatly arranged, as most of the kitchen items were kept in the kitchen cabinets, only the plate rack and a bunch of plantains could be seen on one side of the cabinet,

“Ami, I even met one pregnant woman at the bank earlier this week,” Grace said, as she stretched to bring out a medium-sized pot from one of the cabinets,

“Ehn ehn, like you haven’t seen a pregnant woman before, ”

“I knew you would say that, ” Grace said, as she headed to the door, flinging a small plastic seive at Amifel who narrowly dodged it, ” but seriously, I couldn’t ignore her, ”

” Why? Was her glow that lit?”

“I wish, ” Grace chuckled, “On the contrary, she was tattered, and she looked like she was tired of life. As a nice girl that I am, I couldn’t bear to see a pregnant woman queue up behind so many people, so I was compelled out of pity to help her out with what she came to do,” she said, Amifel who could barely hear her found her way to the kitchen to get the best of the gist,

“Surprisingly, before she left, she gave me money for lunch, guess how much?”

“How much?” Amifel asked while opening the pot of stew not too far from where she stood, fat chunks of chicken filled the medium-sized pot,

“10,000 naira!” she said widening her eyes,

“Wow, #10,000 for lunch? She must be a big woman oh,” said Amifel, still savoring the aroma of the eye-appealing stew in front of her,

“That is the funny part of the whole thing, she didn’t look it one kobo. In fact, I could have bet with my Nike Airforce sneaker that all the money in her account could not be more than #10,000,” she said, as Amifel chuckled. Grace was talking about the white Nike Airforce sneaker that she loved so much.

“If that sleek sneak was my size, I would have stolen it,”

“Thank God we don’t use the same shoe size oh, isn’t God a good God,” Grace laughed, “I even got her contact,”

“Ahn Ahn, on top ‘wetin’, you want her to dash you more money,”

“The amount of the money is not the big deal, it is the fact that it is coming from somebody like her, ”

“I get, I’m just joking,” Amifel tapped her playfully as she washed the rice into hot water,

“I felt so drawn to her and I don’t know why, and I have been saying I would call her oh, let me even do it now before I forget,” she continued, mopping her hands with a napkin, as she went for her phone on the wooden table, Amifel followed suit as she also headed back to the bed, Grace scrolled through her phone for her number,

“I just hope I saved it, ” she sad to herself, “Yeah, got it, ” Grace dialed her number the first time, no response. She was on the second one and just when she was about to give up, someone picked up,

“Hello ma, ” she said, smiling as if she could see her,

“She is not available, call her back, ” a man said with a hostile voice,

“Oh, okay, please tell…” She was about to say something else before the man on the other end hung up on her, she stared at her phone as she debated on whether she should call her again or let things slide,

“What happened to you, what did she say, ” she said, glancing briefly at Grace’s gloomy face

“She wasn’t the one who picked up, or did she give me a wrong number? No, that can’t be, ” Grace asked no one in particular, then almost immediately she stood
up,

“It must be him!” She announced,

“Who?” Amifel asked, she was busy surfing the web and didn’t seem to be interested much,

“Her husband!”

EPISODE 16

 

Mrs. Grace laid on her side on the hospital bed and turned her face to the white-coated hospital wall, although no visible tears could be seen on her face, she had cried a drum-full deep down inside, her insides rumbled and her lower tummy ached at the same time, Akinwale was seated on an iron chair beside her, he had been waiting for her to wake up all night.

Akinwale had rushed his wife, Grace to Solid Rock private hospital the last night when she fainted after he beat the daylight out of her, what happened?

He came home very late at around 11 pm, and when he could not find his bunch of house keys, he resorted to knocking, Grace who had waited for a couple of hours had already gone to bed with her son, after all, he had his keys and would find his way in whenever he got home,

Akinwale had been knocking for almost 30 minutes before his wife woke up, she was tired after washing a big heap of all their dirty clothes and her entire body ached severely, she slightly felt the body aches again as she dragged herself to the door,

“Didn’t you take your keys?” asked a tired Grace, her white nightgown was already far above her knee as her protruded stomach got bigger every day,

“You are mad!” Akinwale said, pointing at his head, “Yes, you must be very mad for asking such a stupid question, if I had the keys, would I stand here knocking for almost 1 hour? move away from the door old woman!”

“I am not mad oh, I am not, it is not my fault that you misplaced or forgot your key so don’t transfer your aggression on me,” and that was it,

“Are you talking to me?” Akinwale asked, locking the door securely behind him, as he moved closer to Grace, who was already scared, she knew that was definitely in for another drama, only that she didn’t know that it was going to be fatal,

“Are you freaking talking to me?” He barked, he didn’t wait for an answer before he pounced on Grace who was already shaking, as he punched her and practiced all the forms of acrobatic skills he knew on her, she kept shouting and begging for mercy but he didn’t listen. The last straw that broke the camel’s back was when she hit her head hard on the wall, that was all she remembered.

Grace did not want him to know that she was already awake, but a sneeze gave her out,

“Grace, Grace! You are awake, thank God!” Akinwale said standing up quickly, as he rested his arms on her body, “I was so scared,”

Grace shrugged as she harshly flung his hands away from her body, “Don’t touch me, Wale!” she said calmly still facing the wall,

“I am sorry Grace, I don’t know what came over me, don’t worry we will have more babies. I promise…”

“I said, don’t touch me!” she yelled as she turned her bloodshot eyes to him at the same instant,” “You are a mistake that I would regret as long as I live, you killed my baby, are you happy now? “ she laughed hysterically, as Akinwale kept pleading with her to lower her voice, “ You disgust me, I wish I had died instead of my poor baby, in fact, I don’t want to see you, get out!” she yelled, Akinwale must have thought that it was a joke until she sat up and removed the needle that was inserted in the fore-flesh of her left hand,

“Get out!!” she yelled again, 2 nurses ran into her room and ushered Akinwale out,

“Please sir, you need to leave. She is in a really critical state right now, as she has already lost a lot of blood and putting her in this kind of condition might worsen her case,” one of the nurses said as she ushered him out, the other nurse tried to pacify Grace who had already broken down into tears, the back of her left hand was bleeding slightly,

“I hate him! I hate him! I don’t want to see him ever again,” she kept saying as the nurses helped her to the bed and she laid on her side again, turning her back to the world. One of the nurses stayed back in case of an emergency.

“I just want to die,” she whispered amidst sobs,

“No madam, you can’t die. You won’t die. Please don’t talk like this,” The nurse said with sympathy,

“Please don’t allow him to come close to me again, please, ”

“I will make sure he doesn’t, I promise. Please just calm down,” she continued, as she cleaned her up and adjusted the needle,

“If you need anything, please use the intercom, so that someone will come and attend to you,” the nurse said,

“Please can I get my phone?” she asked,

“I’m sorry but I don’t think we have it here, let me see if your husband is still around, I will get back to you,” the nurse said as she walked out, she came back some minutes later to tell her that her husband had left,

“But I will tell the doctor so he can reach your husband but if you need to call someone in the meantime, you can use my phone,” she offered,

“Please can you help me talk to my mum, tell her I’m in the hospital, ” She pleaded,

“That’s fine ma, ” the nurse said, handing her an Itel android phone to dial her mum’s number,

“Hello, ma, ”

“Hello, please who am I talking to?” Mrs. Balogun asked she was having her afternoon siesta after church,

“My name is nurse Titi and I am calling you from Solid Rock Private Hospital, ”

“Solid rock hospital, ” she repeated, “Ahn Ahn, is that not my daughter’s family hospital?”

“Yes ma, and I am making this call on behalf of your daughter, ”

“My daughter? Ki lo see? Hope she is fine?” A perplexed Mrs. Balogun asked as she sat up,

“Erhm, we are doing everything to ensure that she is fine ma, ”

“What do you mean, I asked you a straight question, give me a straight answer o jare!” She said,

“Actually, she just lost her baby and…”

“Which baby? What baby are you talking about? Are you sure you are not calling the wrong number? because I still spoke to my daughter yesterday, ”

“Yes ma, I am talking about Mrs. Grace Akinwale. She asked me to put this call through to you and…”

“Yeeh! Ori mi, eleda mi o! My daughter!” Mrs. Balogun yelled as she stood up from her bed and adjusted her wrapper,

“What happened? How come? When did this happen? Where is her husband?” she asked simultaneously, she could hear her daughter crying underneath,

“I am already on my way, I will be there right away,” she said, hanging up hurriedly, without listening to what Nurse Titi had to say, she picked a mismatched headgear that was lying loosely on the bed, and slipped into a casual footwear before heading to her navy-blue Toyota Corolla, although the last time she went to the hospital was when Grace birthed Tobi which was 2 years ago, she still remembered the place vividly,

“Eleda mi saanu mi o! Please Lord, don’t allow anything to happen to my daughter,” she prayed as she zoomed out of her compound.
