(STOP MY WIFE FROM SMILING)
By Opeyemi Akintunde
“Hello Ma”…the husband snatcher/She-devil said with the most beautifully alluringly textured voice I had heard in my life….If the circumstances were right, I could have fallen in love with her voice….,
“And why the unnecessary “Ma”? Was she trying to give me a fake impression about herself that she was respectful? Or trying to act like a good girl before Henry….Please she should give that to fools like my husband that she had tied down with her charm” I thought as I blurted out in anger the next few words….
“Hello Margaret or whatever you are called, I don’t have much to say to you, because I believe you and I are not in the same league.. I just want you to think of how callous you are and do the needful, before I ask God to punish you…”
“Ma, I know God Can not punish me because I am also a Christian, I am a born again child of God…” She said VERY CALMLY
“Christi…or what did you just call yourself? Please what brand of Christianity is yours? The type that steals other people’s husbands or the one that supports polygamy? If that is it, then it must be a new brand one from the pit of hell you practice” I said angrily
“Ma, the Christianity I practice is the very one you practice, the one Abraham the father of faith practiced that made him have more than one wife”
“What?” My tongued became automatically tied, The She-devil continued
“Yes, the type David practiced and made him have more than one wife and yet he was the man after God’s own heart,”
I was as quiet as a graveyard as I unbelievably was listening to this devil quoting scriptures to me, scriptures she knew so well, she cited so many scriptures to me backing up her point, then just like a dream she said…
“Ma I am not a devil, neither am I an agent of darkness sent to destroy your home, I am just a woman who has found true love and is not ready to lose it.
I am not asking you to leave your matrimonial home, all I ask is just share your husband’s heart with me.
I don’t even plan on destroying your ministry. This can be our little secret. Nobody has to know.
I just love Henry and He is the first man to show my children and I genuine love after I lost my husband. Ma, God bears me witness that I am not using anything diabolical on Henry, we just love each other and like I said Ma, I don’t plan on taking him from you, We can share him Ma, and I promise to be a good girl….Please ma, don’t take him away from me, because if you try, I might be forced to act back….” she said very calmly pleading
I had never been that tongue-tied in my life before….
“Hello Ma, Are you there? Hello…” Henry took the phone from her…
“ Hello, Hello Betty, Hello Honey…I know you are there, please don’t do anything crazy especially for the sake of the kids…I love you and God knows, but I also love Margaret tooo…So are you willing to share me with her, If you say yes, I will come home right away!”
I couldn’t say No or Yes or what do you think I should have said?
