    CHAPTER TWENTY-TWO
    Etim and Edidiong exchanged surprised glances when their
    first son, Edet, stepped into their apartment with his
    fiancée, Edua Imasogie. The lady looked like one of the
    beauty queens they had seen on the television and they
    feared that their son wasn’t in her class at all. The more
    they watched the two, the more they realized how the
    couple were so fond of each other and they began to
    wonder how the two crossed paths in the first place.
    “You are welcome my daughter,” Etim grinned from ear to
    ear, he couldn’t stop staring at the girl and was very proud
    of his son for finding a worthy wife.
    “Thank you sir,” Edua smiled back at the man, her initial
    fear had melted away. Since she walked into the Udeme’s
    home, she had felt their warmth of welcome and with the
    way they kept gawking at her, she realized that her beauty
    must have swept them off their feet.
    “I am making one of Edet’s favourite meal. You must eat
    before you leave,” Edidiong beamed at her. She was
    already dreaming of the way her grand-children would
    look like. Her first son was very good looking and he was
    getting married to a very beautiful woman. She could
    imagine how their children would turn out. They would
    surely look like Half-caste, she thought to herself.
    “No problem ma,” she smiled back at her. Edua was
    greatly relieved that Edet’s parents accepted her and had
    welcomed her into their home. She had been a bit skeptic
    when Edet wanted her to meet them.
    His two younger brothers were worse off. Uduak and
    Udoh had not been able to sit still since they arrived. The
    young men had been parading the sitting room, pacing
    and winking at their elder brother and smiling at her as if
    they had just won the American lottery. With the way they
    had been acting all day, she was beginning to feel
    suddenly shy and self-conscious.
    “Edet, you have done very well,” Uduak winked at his elder
    brother.
    “Yes, you have done very well,” Udoh agreed.
    Edet shook his head and just smiled at his brothers. He
    was happy that his family had accepted the woman he
    wanted to spend the rest of his life with. When they leave
    his parents’ home, they were heading to the island to see
    Edua’s mum. He hoped the woman would take the news
    of their intended union cordially. His fiancée wasn’t
    optimistic, but he was hopeful. He believed that God could
    touch anyone, after all, hearts of Kings were in his hands.
    “It is a pity that your father is no more. I would have loved
    to meet him,” Etim observed his son’s fiancée.
    “Hmm…” Edua nodded. She missed her father. She wished
    he was still alive to witness the happiest moments of her
    life.
    “But, at least, her mother is still hale and hearty,” Edidiong
    added quickly. She didn’t want the girl to start thinking of
    her late father and feel sad.
    “Yes, yes, that’s true,” Etim agreed and glanced at his
    wife.
    “Let me set the dining. The food is almost ready,”
    Edidiong got up immediately.
    Edua dropped her purse on Edet’s laps and got up too.
    “I can help,” she offered.
    They all stared at her in amazement.
    “No, no… sit down. You are our visitor,” Edidiong began to
    shake her head. She didn’t want the girl to follow her into
    the kitchen and stain her dress.
    “Haba Sister Edua, don’t disturb yourself, just sit down
    and relax,” Uduak encouraged her.
    “Yes, please sit down, we won’t allow you to do anything
    in this house,” Udoh chimed in.
    “I believe that I am no longer a visitor, I am going to help,
    mama, let’s go,” Edua took Edidiong by the hand and
    pulled her towards the kitchen.
    The woman started to laugh and allowed the young girl to
    lead her on. She was happy and relieved that she was
    gaining a very good daughter-in-law. She had always
    wanted a girl-child, but, God had given her three
    wonderful boys. She was eternally grateful, but, she
    wouldn’t have minded an additional girl. There were times
    she envied her mates who had female children.
    Nevertheless, she had always prayed that her sons would
    bring good girls home as their wives. Girls who she could
    relate to like her very own daughters and it seemed that
    God had already started to answer her prayers.
    The moment the women left, Uduak and Udoh sat beside
    their elder brother.
    “Bros, where did you find her?” Uduak was curious. He
    hoped he would be able to find someone like his elder
    brother’s fiancée.
    “Yes o, where did you catch that enchanting beauty?”
    Udoh winked at his elder brother. He was quite impressed
    with the physical beauty of his brother’s woman.
    Edet began to laugh. He honestly didn’t know what to tell
    them.
    “Just thank God for me. He has given me a very good
    woman.”
    They all nodded their heads in agreement.
    Xxxxxx
    Adesua Ayenkegbe looked at her only daughter and her
    fiancé with one glance, from heads to toes. She didn’t like
    the way the girl was looking. Gone was her glowing skin
    and she was looking skinny. She had less make-up on and
    the clothes she was putting on was very cheap. She was
    angry that her Princess had been reduced to a mere
    commoner by her adamant decisions to do things her
    way. Her fiancé was worse off. He was good looking quite
    all right, but, he was also clad in a very cheap attire. She
    felt disgusted that her daughter was settling down for
    someone who wasn’t in their league at all.
    “What did you say you do again?” she swept her shoulder
    length dark brown Brazilian hair away from her fair
    glowing face.
    Edet cleared his throat, “I… I repair automobiles,” he could
    feel the woman’s eagle eyes on him. Since they walked
    into her home, her cold reception had clouded the
    atmosphere. His fiancée was right after all. No wonder
    she had been reluctant whenever he reminded her that
    they needed to see her mother. They had no choice. They
    needed to see the woman and intimate her of their plans
    and decisions.
    “You repair automobiles…” Adesua repeated, then blinked
    in shock. “Are you a motor mechanic?!” her shrill voice hit
    the roof.
    He nodded with confidence. “Yes, ma. I have a Mechanic
    shop in Anthony Village and I am very good at what I do.”
    Adesua shot an angry look at her daughter, “You are
    getting married to a Motor Mechanic.”
    She swallowed hard, mentally preparing for the verbal
    assault that was yet to come. “Yes mother. Repairing cars
    is a very lucrative profession.”
    The woman gawked at the girl as if she had lost her
    marbles.
    “Are you out of your mind?!”
    “No, mother,” she returned her angry gaze. She was
    determined not to allow the woman’s assumptions and
    analyses to rattle her.
    Adesua glanced back at Edet, then at her daughter.
    “You came into my home with a common road-side motor
    mechanic.”
    She sighed heavily, “He is not a road-side mechanic.”
    “What is the difference?! A motor mechanic is a motor
    mechanic! This is outrageous!” she glared at both of
    them.
    Edet reached out for his fiancée’s hand and squeezed it
    lightly. His touch calmed her frayed nerves, but, she was
    still upset.
    “You decided to pull out of our business, I allowed you.
    Why did I even do that? Take a good look at you,” her
    gaze swept over her like one inspecting an insect. “You
    look like a road-side pepper seller.”
    Edua stared back at her mother and held her tongue. She
    had a million things to say, but, thought against it. She
    didn’t want to start arguing and fighting with her in the
    presence of the man she loved.
    “Look at your skin, look at the way you are dressed, look
    at the way you have turned out. Poor, starving and you
    are okay with all this?”
    Edua pressed her lips together. She was beginning to find
    it difficult to remain quiet.
    “Now, you come here, with this,” she pointed an irritated
    finger at Edet. “This… this commoner, this excuse of a
    man…”
    Edet coughed. He wasn’t getting uncomfortable with the
    way the woman was ranting. “Madam, I think you have
    said enough.”
    She shot him a glare. “How dare you?! How dare you talk
    back at me?”
    “Ma, we are here to inform you of our wedding plans. We
    will appreciate if you can find time from your busy
    schedule and show up, giving us every support we need,
    we ask for nothing more…”
    “You must be smoking weed, if you think I will allow you
    to marry my daughter,” she scowled at him.
    “I am not a child mother. You do not have a say when it
    comes to who I want to spend the rest of my life with,”
    Edua informed her mother. The determination in her eyes
    made her mother burn with rage.
    Adesua jumped to her feet, shaking visibly with fury.
    “I will not allow it! This union…” she pointed at both of
    them, “This union will never take place.”
    “It will and there is nothing you can do about it,” Edua
    countered, annoyed at her mother’s irritable disposition.
    “You are both dreaming. You are both building castles in
    the air. You think this marriage will work,” she faced Edet.
    “Do you even know the woman you are getting married
    to? Can you even handle her?” she looked him up and
    down with disdain.
    “I love your daughter madam…”
    Adesua erupted with laughter.
    “I know everything I need to know about her, both past
    and present.”
    She placed her hands on her curvy hips and eyed him.
    “She is the woman I am going to spend the rest of my life
    with and nothing, or anyone can change that.”
    Edua got up, so did Edet.
    “It’s good seeing you again mother,” she threw the
    invitation card on the center table.
    “I am not coming,” Adesua said through gritted teeth.
    Edua and Edet exchanged pale glances.
    “I will not stand by and watch you ruin your life,” she
    screamed at her daughter.
    Edua swallowed hard, feeling pained. “Fine, have it your
    way.”
    “Madam, this is your only daughter…”
    “Do not speak to me young man!” she yelled at him.
    Edet sighed, feeling exasperated. He looked at the woman
    again and shook his head sadly.
    “The likes of you work for me as my driver, my gardener,
    my laundry-man… you are beneath the caliber of people in
    my sphere of reckoning,” she lashed out at him.
    Edua reached out for her fiancé’s hand and pulled him
    towards the door. He followed her without saying another
    word.
    “You are going to regret this young woman!” she called
    out to the girl, hoping she would listen to her.
    Edua and Edet walked out of the mansion and headed
    towards the main gate. Edua dragged in a frustrated
    breath, and closed her eyes, trying to seal off the storm of
    tears threatening to flood her face. She wished she had
    not come. She had always known that her mother would
    never be in agreement with her decisions. The agony in
    her heart enveloped her chest, tightening it, making it hard
    for her to breathe. She stopped walking.
    Edet glanced at his fiancée. The anguish in her dull light
    brown eyes cut through him like a very sharp blade.
    “My love…” he drew her into his comforting arms.
    Edua collapsed in his arms, shaking visibly wit sobs. The
    tears came, spilling all over her fair smooth face.
    “Oh God…” she cried out and held unto him as if her life
    depended on it.
    “Sssssssh…” he rubbed his hands against her spine,
    patting her on the back in consolation.
    “Oh Edet…” she wept.
    “It is going to be all right. Trust me. God’s got our backs,”
    he assured her.
    She kept on crying.
    “Even if your father and mother forsake you, God will
    never, ever leave you nor forsake you,” he encouraged
    her.
    Her sobs began to waned.
    “He will go before you, he will go with you, do not be
    afraid or be dismayed…”
    “Deuteronomy 31 verse 8,” she whispered.
    “Yes…”
    “I trust God. Everything is going to be all right,” she said
    to herself.
    “Yes, he’s got our backs.”
    Edua sighed in relief. It might not look like it, but she was
    sure that everything was going to work out for them.
    He let her go, held her hand, and led her towards the gate.
    “Who else can represent your mother at the wedding?”
    “My pastor’s wife.”
    “Pastor Victoria?”
    “Yes,” she nodded, “Or, my maternal grand-mother.”
    “Your mum’s mother,” he glanced at her.
    “Yes,” she returned his gaze. “My maternal grand-father
    and grand-mother are excited for us. They are coming to
    the wedding with my mum’s younger sisters and their
    husbands and children.”
    “Wow! That’s good news,” he felt greatly relieved.
    “Yes, it is,” she started to smile.
    “What about people from your father’s family?”
    “My paternal grand-father’s younger brother will represent
    them. He is coming with his family.”
    “What about your father’s father? And your father’s
    mother? And your father’s brothers?”
    She sighed heavily.
    “They all flew out of the country a few months’ after my
    father’s burial. My mum claimed that they took everything
    my father had worked for all his life, leaving us with
    nothing.”
    “My goodness! That’s cold and cruel, if it’s actually true.”
    She shrugged, “It’s all in the past now. I don’t like
    remembering or talking about it…”
    He squeezed her by the hand, “I understand.”
    The gateman opened the gate and let them out. The
    Taxify driver saw them coming. He started the engine of
    the vehicle, once they were seated at the back seat of the
    car, he nosed into the street and drove off.
