Story: MY TREASURE Chapter 13

Story: MY TREASURE Chapter 13
MY TREASURE
Chapter 13

....I turned to see who had walked in that made Ehi so shocked and surprised,lo and behold,it was my mother,I was shocked too,and the pastor had just asked who didn't want the wedding to hold,I feared mother had come to put a stop to the wedding,but she went quietly to a seat,,and the minister continued,9,and 10,since no one has given reasons why these two shouldn't be joined,we may now processed....the joining commenced and the minister declared us husband and wife,I was so very happy, finally, Ehiwenma had become my wife,my joy knew no bound.,....

People were coming out to congratulate us and wish us well, amongst whom was my mother,I was so happy when she walked up to me and hugged him beautifully wearing a smile, congratulations,she had said.she also slightly hugged Ehi,congratulating her too...

Soon the wedding was over and we had gone home,we went to church for Thanksgiving the next day being Sunday...iye and Osas were with us,since they had no one in Lagos...

On Monday,after everything was over, Ehi insisted we went to a five star hotel for our honeymoon for at least five days...

I was wondering why she'd even suggest that,the wedding had greatly affected my account,there was no assistance from anyone,and of course she wasn't working,but honey,we could go for honeymoon any other time,I need to get myself back financially,you know the situation of things, my account was greatly affected and you know this,I tried to reason with her....

Excuse me,she raised her voice,so those wives whose husbands takes on vacation to beautiful places outside the country do they have two heads,or are they in anyway better than me,she shouted...

Honey stop this,you are raising your voice,iye and your brother are in the living room,and of course you know they are not better than you,I shall do all those and more for you,just exercise a little patience,I explained again..

AD,if you want us to have Peace,you would have to take me to a five star hotel for my honeymoon,I need to relax and getaway from all these stress,she shouted again walking out....

I understood where she was coming from, every one deserves to have the honeymoon of their choice,indeed some couple travel all the way to Dubai,UK,Canada and the likes for honeymoon,if she's requesting for a good hotel ,why not...

When she came into the living room again,I tried to pet her, asking her to make a choice of the hotel she wanted to go....

She was happy and made a choice of one of the best hotels in Lagos...

We went there for our honeymoon,she was very happy,and that made me happy too....

Soon five days was over,and we had returned home,by now I was having less than 120,000 thousand in my account,and I wondered how that would sustain us.. .   

It's been two weeks after our wedding and iye and the brother were still around....

I had to ask my wife..

Honey,iye and Osas are still around in Lagos,I mean, isn't your brother learning a trade, when are they going homeeeeeee...

So only two weeks that my mother and brother has stayed in your house,you are already chasing them out,she quarried, interrupting me....

I am not chasing them out and you know it,iye is like a mother to me,and Osas like a brother, baby,I am only concerned because I am not financially stable,I wouldn't want them to lack anything while in our house,I explained...

Well that's the more reason you should work hard and make more money,or better yet go ask your mom for help she said....

I didn't want to get into a fight with her,so I let the matter died down....

I resumed work again,it was the third Monday after the wedding,, congratulations married man,my colleagues had all gathered to celebrate me as I stepped into the office,I was overwhelmed,and somehow was able to take my mind off things,I was very happy,I really appreciated them.....

Mr Amadin,like this you don leave us for market ohh, Stan teased...

How is our beautiful Mrs doing,Chi asked...

Oh she's fine, thanks alot Chi....

I thought about what Ehi said,and I concluded that perhaps it was time I visited mom,at least to thank her for showing up for my wedding,it really meant alot to me.....

So when I got home that day, I decided to discuss the matter with Ehi...

Honey,you know,my mother surprised us by showing up for our wedding,I think it's best we pay her a visit in appreciation, I said....

Well,it isn't a bad idea paying your mom a visit oh,but you see me and embarrassment,we don't agree,so you are going to go there on your own first,if she welcome's you,then,I shall go with you,but going with you just yet,no please,count me out,she said....

Indeed she was right,I decided to go see mother alone first,to know if she had forgiven me before I'd go with my wife...

The Saturday of that week,I got dressed In the morning and headed to my father's house...

I went inside,and mother wasn't in the living room downstairs,I went upstairs to her room,and knocked at her door,she opened her door,and was surprised to see me....

Good morning mother,I greeted..

Goodmorning young man,she replied...

Mother,I really I want to Thank you for making time out of your busy schedule to grace my wedding,I am very grateful....I said.

I didn't come because of you, neither for your wife,I only came because I had a deal with God,my mother didn't live long to attend any of her children's wedding,so I told God I shall be more than grateful to be present in my children's wedding,and indeed God gave me life to witness your wedding so I was very thankful.but that doesn't mean I shall go against my husband's wish,you are still not welcomed to this family,and still disinherited from your father's assets,she said....

She Went back into the bedroom and came out with her cheque book,she wrote the sum of 2million Naria and handed over to me...

That is the sum of 2million Naria, it's my wedding gift to you,she said...

I was very happy,I took the cheque from her and smiled beautifully,than you mother,I said,please can I hug you,i asked....

She opened her arms wide and I went in,I had really missed her so much...

Mother,can my wife and I come visit you by the weekend,I asked her...

Am afraid no,your father words still rings in my ears,am sure he wouldn't have wanted that,so do not worry, I pray that lady is worth all the sacrifices you are making for her,mother said.,,,
Yes mom,am sure, Ehi and I love each other, she's my world and my treasure,I said .

Okay then,if you say so,bye,she said, and walked inside, shutting her door.i could see the pains in her eyes,she was missing me,and honestly I had missed her too,my sister wasn't home I was very happy to have seen mom

I entered my car,I was so excited about the money,it would go a long way,but then,I had an idea to give it to Ehi to hold while I look for a place to take a loan to add to it,so she could set up a business.. 

Ehi was very happy about the money,and even the idea,she said she was going to open a supermarket,where she'd sell varieties of things and even clothes,,I though about the idea,and saw it was nice,I was able to get a loan of 3 million Naria from the bank,so she could add the two million making five and then she'd start up her business....

Honey,I was able to get a loan from the bank,so you are going to bring the two million,so we could add this to it,and open your supermarket,I said....

Well I have used almost a million Naria,so we have 1.2million to add to the loan you got and start up something she said ..

I was shocked,I mean who does that, what did you use such amount of money for I asked..

I had to shop for iye and myself,we needed a change of wardrobe,she said....

Ehi,for heaven's sake what's wrong with you, aren't familiar with the saying there's time for everything, for God sake we are trying to get on our feet, don't you think your shopping could have waited,I shouted,I was going mad,,,,

Amadi,stop it,stop it,I am not going to watch you insult me,so i should go naked because you are trying to get on your feet,see,if you weren't ready to face responsibility,why did you get married,she shouted, I am a woman,,I have needs,she was so rude and not remorseful...

I went to bed on an empty stomach,I had a lot on my mind,was I wrong in my decision,what has gotten over Ehi,can she ever join me in building a home,have I made a mistake,so many thoughts going through my head,I didn't know it was past 4am and I hadn't slept....

Indeed one can never cheat nature, getting to work by morning,the sleep I refused to have the previous night,came knocking,I found myself dozing off several times,are you okay AD, Chi asked,I am fine, thanks I replied....

Chi had a meeting with a client that morning,so she had to leave,I didn't know I had fallen asleep on my desk,Mr Amadin,Mr Amadin,I could from my sleep, waking up,it was the General manager,the son of the CEO standing before me........
