I prayed and I cried to God daily to touch my husband wherever he was and bring him home to me. I have practically become a shadow of my self. I was still getting congratulatory messages from people, if only they knew what I was going through.
This is the 8th day since my husband disappeared. No calls, no texts, absolutely nothing. I have told myself that once it gets to the 10th day then I will go to the police, but I am still believing God to touch him and bring him home to me.
Suddenly I heard the door bell ring, I jumped up to open and check and there was no one. I went back inside to sit down and continue my crying which has become a daily activity for me. Just as I was about to sit, I heard the door bell ring again. I didnt want to go but it wouldn’t stop and so I got up and reluctantly went to check who it was. When I opened the door, Isaiah was there.
I stood there and stared at him as if I was seeing a ghost. And after some minutes, I shifted from the door to allow him come in. He came in and stood like someone who was scared of his own house.
I looked at him for a while, he was looking tattered and dirty,then I stepped into the kitchen to prepare water for him to take his bath. I stayed in the kitchen until the water was ready, and then I carried the water to the bathroom for him, and then I went ahead to prepare his food. When the food was ready I made to set the table but then I told him that his water was in the bathroom and he should go and have his bath.
I finished setting his food on the dinning and as I turned to return to my seat, I saw my husband fully on his knees weeping.
Isaiah: Honey am sorry, please forgive me.
Tears fell from my eyes and I just kept quiet and allowed them flow.
Isaiah: Baby please forgive me please, I am truly sorry
Me: What happened?
Isaiah: baby, I know you won’t believe me but I can’t remember anything.
Me: oh please dont give me that line.
Isaiah: please believe me, I can’t tell you what happened, all I remember is getting a call that Marvis..
Me: stop stop stop, I dont want to hear that name in this house.
Isaiah: bu bu but……
Me: I said stop, just stop. Please go and bath. Just go
I watched as my husband walked to the bathroom and I discovered he has lost weight.
I picked up my phone and I called mummy.

Mummy: Is he back?
Me: yes mom. How did you know?
Mummy: God told me he will return today.
Me: Mummy I am so angry right now, I dont think I want to stay here with him anymore. Not after all he has done. (Starts crying) mummy she kept him for eight days, she spent our wedding night with him. She kept him for 8days and now he returns and starts giving me stories. Am so fed up.
Mummy: Listen D, this is just the beginning. And you have to stand and fight for your home and for your man.
Me: Mummy I can’t, I dont have the strength, marriage is just 8days old and am already fighting? I can’t mom.
Mummy: you can and you will. A wise woman builds her home not give up on it. A wise woman is a praying woman and a praying woman is a complete woman. A complete woman is a patient woman, a complete woman is a forgiving woman, a complete woman is a woman who is excellent in wifing, in mothering, in cooking, in bed and in everything. A complete woman is a woman who fears God and respects her husband, a complete woman is a woman wholistically. And my dear, you are a complete woman so you will stand and build your home, do you understand?
Me: No mom I dont.
Mummy: dont worry dear, soon you will
I ended the call and I watched Isaiah come out from the bathroom, I watched him eat slowly. I looked at his face and I saw the man that I fell in love with and I knew he was truly sorry. I knew right then that I have forgiven him.
