I was not expecting to find an angel but the moment Esther opened her mouth to sing, I was hooked. By all means, I cannot bear if she was married! That thought almost made me shout out loud! NO! This is it, Love at odd places. The service finished and I found myself blindly walking past all men and women of God towards Esther. She was looking my way, thinking she was intended to hug me, she moved passed me and hugged a dear brother while I awkwardly had my hands in the air! This is bad! Embarrassing but not as much as when she asked me, “CAN I HELP YOU? Of course you can, marry me I thought, but what came out was “You look absolutely adorable and had to say hi, I am Michael, I said. She gave me a beautiful smile that I considered the start of our relationship.
Days that followed were challenging. As we dated, she was finding information about me that I kinda liked to be kept in the past, whereas she seemed not to have a dot on her name. How can a 28 year old woman be spotless?
Well we dated and got married 7 months down the line after I had cleaned up my acts completely. I had changed myself completely to have her required qualities. I stopped everything I liked to do everything she liked and that made her very happy!
After honeymoon the drama started! She was not the sweet girl with a sweet chilling voice anymore. She became a commanding monster, a demanding, nagging commodity and just a nightmare to live with day in day out.I became the maid, a taxi to her many fashion expos, the extended family breadwinner that I even took second shift to manage her thrifty spending. With all this I had to book a fortnight, if lucky, to get my conjugal rights! OOH MY! My life had taken a nasty turn and the one angelic diamond had turned to be an evil calculator of women rights. Basically the marriage was a downright flop!
Yes, God got me right. All the nasty things I did to women were repaid by this one woman that I Love to bits. All the women I cheated on, the unwanted pregnancies, the ones I broke their heart, all have been avenged. I have become a slave to the one person I cannot live without. Now she is expecting our first child and believe me you, I even wash her feet before she sleeps! This is a match made in Heaven! God planned for me to suffer in Love as those who suffered under my youthful don’t care attitudes! I am staying in it to pay my dues, so fellas, no divorce for us! I am happy to slave under my Love! I have been reduced to a level I could not have envisioned! She will change, when I have paid all my Love debt, I think!
