The Honeymoon Episode 2
Foluke met Oladayo during her third year in the University.
She was the kind of girl that almost
every guy that came in contact with will never want to let go. She is of an average height and a beautiful countenance, quiet but firm. Though she was an average student, yet one of the most respected in her department because of her strong moral principles.. She loved and served God all through her University days. She never had a love relationship because she purposed in her heart not to do so until she graduated from the University.
Her decision changed when she met Dayo.
Oladayo was then a 500 level Civil Engineering Student . They had met at a Seminar held in honour of the graduating students that very year.
Dayo was so much interested in Foluke the
very moment he set his eyes on her. He had never been in a relationship too but was really
attracted to her. They exchanged contact and started their friendship. Though, they had no strings attached at first, but they gradually became so fond of each other that they both became an Item on campus.
Not long after, Dayo graduated and went for his National Youth Service in one of the South Southern states of Nigeria. Nevertheless, he kept in touch with Foluke all through. The day he finally proposed marriage to her was the happiest day of his life because Foluke immediately accepted to marry him Theirs was a holy courtship. He was a virgin and he looked forward to his wedding night with Foluke.
A year after his proposal, Foluke completed her NYSC programme and a year later, they had a
beautiful wedding, a dream come true!
Foluke paced through the hotel room for some minutes. She tried calling her husband's number but it wasn't getting through. 'Where on earth could he have gone to?' She thought. What is supposed to be a joyful honeymoon has suddenly turned to an episode of tears for her. She resumed her crying again. Just then, a thought flashed through her mind.
"Could that be?" She asked herself.
"No, it can't", she continued in her thoughts, shaking her head vigorously. She wasn't really sure of her thoughts.
She reached for her phone and dialled her mum's number. "Mommy! Please come over, my marriage is on Fire!" She screamed into the phone.
"Which marriage are you talking about Foluke?" Her mother asked in alarm...
The Honeymoon l Episode 3
Foluke ended the call before her mum could question her further. She jumped out of bed, changed into a short gown and walked out of the room in search of her husband. Immediately she opened the door, she saw her husband, Oladayo pacing the corridor of the hotel rooms. He had being loitering around the corridor all these while, undecided about where to go. He started walking towards the stairs immediately he sighted his bride . "My husband!" Foluke called running along.
"Please wait", she said in a loud whisper not
wanting to disturb the guests in the other
rooms. Her husband kept walking down the stairs towards the ground floor,not willing to start a conversation with her.
Foluke's mum kept dialing her number but she wasn't picking up.
Dayo turned to the hotel restaurant, Foluke followed. They both sat at a table.
. Dayo's face was blank, he looked past his wife and glued his eyes on the T.V in the restaurant,
ignoring her presence as if she was a lifeless figure.
After some minutes, Foluke held her husband's hands and said silently "I think I can explain." Dayo snatched his hands from her as if he had touched a hot pot.
"So you have an explanation all along? Yet you pretended as if you were surprised about the whole thing. What else will you explain? Enh? Tell me
. "Oh Dayo, I was drugged and someone raped me in the process?" Abi? Dayo ranted on. Look here lady, I will never fall for such a deceit. I won't be bought by that!" He shouted.
Foluke looked at her husband of 24hours, she had never seen him this angry before, tears started streaming down her eyes again. Dayo didn't look like he cared, he felt betrayed, cheated and hurt.
"Oladayo please listen to me", Foluke called out after some minutes of perfect silence. "I never
meant to betray you, I have loved you since I met you, what would I have gained from telling lies that will hurt you and destroy our marriage? I have always been a virgin, no man has ever seen my nakedness in my entire life except you just this morning. I have kept myself all through".
"Oh really? So how else can you explain what happened back there?" Dayo snapped.
"Please Dayo listen. There is this thing that kept flashing through my mind since you left the room and I kept wondering if it could have been the cause. Though I have never told you about it before."
Dayo shot her an angry look, "So you think this is the best time to start unraveling your dirty past? Why not during courtship? You deceived me into marrying you Foluke, I will never forgive you for injuring the trust I have in you."
One or two tear drops escaped from his eyes. Foluke was the only woman he had loved in his
entire life, he wondered why she betrayed him. Foluke noticed the tears, she felt so bad, her heart was broken to see her husband cry and the fact that she was the cause made it too heavy for her to bear.
