THE MISTAKE OF MY LIFE
It was Mama Joy’s place i visited first. As i drove into the compound, it was Nnamdi i saw first. He kept looking at the car to know who was inside. I didn’t want Winnie my daughter to see him. I feared he might ask me about his daughter. When i parked the car, i told Winnie to wait in the car. I came down and pretended not to see him. I noticed him coming towards me while i avoided him as i made my way towards Mama Joy’s place. When she saw me, she yelled with joy and embraced me. Then Nnamdi came there and called my name. I ignored him. He prostrated on the ground and started begging me to forgive him. He told how he had married twice and got no issue. He asked about my daughter. I told him to leave me alone that his daughter is dead. I saw tears roll down his cheeks. He was really sorrowful. I made up my mind never to forgive him. I watched him walk away in agony. Mama Joy told me that he was telling the truth. She told me that after getting married for a very long time, he got no child. His people told him to send the woman away and marry another, which he did and still no issue to show for it. The doctors said that nothing’s wrong with him and that God’s time is the best.
”Serves him right. God is punishing him for what he did to me” that was all i said.
I gave Mama Joy things i bought for her. I gave her money too. she was so happy. I entered my car and as i was driving away, Nnamdi was waving me goodbye with tears in his eyes.
“Mum, who is that man over there?” my daughter asked, pointing at Nnamdi. I told her lies.
I drove straight to my father’s compound. it was my mother i saw first. As i came down with my daughter, i was surprised as my mother gave me a warm embrace. She apologised on her behalf and on behalf of her husband. she embraced my daughter too. I was happy when she called her “my granddaughter” I cried bitterly when she told me that my two sisters died in a ghastly accident. My father went for a meeting. I was shocked when she told me that a woman from nowhere showed up and said that almost all our lands belonged to her. She took the case to court because she has a lot of money. I told my Mum to relax that i am a lawyer. She couldn’t believe it. As we were still talking, a car drove into our compound.
“That is the woman” my mother said.
The woman packed her car and came out, I was shocked when i saw Mady come down from the car.😲
Question: What do u think will be the outcome of this meeting?
