She had borne the pain and the abuse for
many months, she woke up that morning
brimming with a strange anger and a
taste of vengeance in her mouth
She never ever thought she would end up
in an abusive relationship
When they started out, he was the sweetest
man she had ever met!
She was 29 when she met him at one of
those end of the year exhibitions held at
the television station where she was
stationed by her company at the time
She was manning one of the exhibition
stands, she was a pretty face in a
He saw right through her that morning!
He saw that she was lonely and yearning
for a mate
She knew he saw that because he walked
over to her at her stand and said “I have
been looking at you for a few minutes,
your eyes look sad and lonely! I came to
cheer you up”
She couldn’t even respond in her usual
witty way!
He was right, she was sad and lonely
He was a freelance journalist hunting for news
He had time on his hand and he spent that
time with her
Within minutes her mood had been
changed completely
She was laughing and chatting with him as
if he was an old friend
They became lovers a few days later
Within a month she had moved in with him
She thought he was going to propose
He didn’t!
She waited for eighteen months
Her older sister told her she should move
out and make room for other men if he
wouldn’t propose
She wanted to do it but she also didn’t
want to return to the sad, lonely and
depressed state she was in when she
met him
He had made her happy and she was
afraid of the pain heartbreak would
unleash on her
She couldn’t go through with it
So she began to see other men by
the side
She didn’t see it as cheating on him
since they were only cohabiting
She felt it could stir him to jealousy and
prompt him to propose or perhaps give
her a soft landing when she builds up
the courage to leave him
He found out about the side relationships
(She had been in about 7 but they never
lasted for more than a few weeks
because most of the guys wanted sex
and none of them was talking marriage
She just wanted to get married and was
willing to leave him to do so but she
wouldn’t have sex with anyone unless
she was sure
He discovered he sex chat with a guy
She did that, even phone sex but nothing
She was just being smart in her opinion
but he didn’t see it that way, he beat the
living daylight out of her
He called her names, mocked her, perhaps
even hated her
Their relationship was never the same again
He got irritable easily, screamed at her in
public and just wouldn’t let it go
She couldn’t even hope for a proposal
after that
She packed her bag and said she was
It enraged him more and he beat her again
This time she bled so much that she was
afraid he had inflicted some internal
injuries on her
When she got to the hospital,
she realized she was having a miscarriage
The doctor told her the baby was seven
weeks old
She didn’t even know she was pregnant
The news broke her
When she got home, she decided to deal
with him
The next morning, when he went out, she
packed all his credentials and other valuables
Into the back seat of his car and set everything
on fire
Then she packed her bags into her car and
ran away!
She was so sure they had become mortal
She knew she had crossed the rubicon,
there was no forgiving what she did.
For three years
she never heard from or saw him
He was a dead part of her last but things
didn’t augur well for her too
No nee relationship and she was still
very sad and lonely
One night she approached the brother in
Jeans and T-Shirt for counselling after
Night of glory of November 2019!
They prayed together
A few days later, the brother in Jeans and
T-shirt met with a man at his office
The man complained of stagnancy and
As they joined hands to pray, the Brother
in Jeans and T-shirt asked the man a
“Do you know a sister so and so”
The man
asked why
The brother in Jeans and T-shirt said
“I saw her as soon as I held your hands,
who is she to you”
The man said a lot of things
She was a whore, a cheat, a destiny
destroyer, the enemy of all enemies.
He even swore that he would kill her if
he should set his eyes on her”
The brother in Jeans and T-shirt told him
he had to forgive the lady and the lady
also had to forgive him
He said he had forgiven but didn’t want
to see her
The brother in Jeans and T-shirt told him
the lady felt the same way
They prayed and the man departed
Weeks later he was back
He said the spirit of God told him to
apologize to the lady
The Brother in Jeans and T-shirt arranged
a meeting
When the lady saw him, she busted into tears
The man apologized to her
She explained that she wasn’t really cheating
(in her opinion at the time) because they were
not married and he had no right to lay his
hands-on her even if they were married and
he caught her in bed with another man
He explained to her that he came to realize
he was a bit selfish by not doing the needful
He had met the Lord and so had she
The days of ignorance must go!
They hugged and made up
Somehow they resumed their relationship
They got married in March 2020!
The union was blessed with a set of twins
in June 2021
She said he had been nothing but a joy
and a delight
He said she had been the answer to his
prayers of many years!
