"My Wife And I …" season 1 episode 3


Daniel didn’t know if he would be served breakfast once he entered into the house back. He felt he didn’t have to embarrass himself by trying to sit down and wait for the breakfast and at the end of the day, Nora wouldn’t behave as if she knew him at all.
He paced into the living room and sat down. He was a Christian but he didn’t take everything so serious that he had to leave for church as early as possible. He even hated Sunday school lessons, he liked getting to the church for the service by 10 o‟clock am than getting to church for Sunday school.
He picked up the remote control of the 45 inches flat screen LG television and that of the decoder that was beside him and tuned the channel of the decoder if he could see a movie for few minutes before getting prepared for the service. He started seeing a soap opera when Nora got to the dining room and served the food there. She just sat down. She didn’t know what was on Daniel’s mind and wouldn’t want a situation where she would call him for his breakfast and he wouldn’t answer her at all. I think if he’s hungry, he would come for his food here,
Nora had thought as she began to eat her own food. Daniel who was hungry kept turning his head towards the dining room, wondering when Nora would stop her bad attitudes. He didn’t know what would become of him if he walked to the dining, beside her to eat. What if she packs her food? He had thought as he faced the television set again.
Nora went into the kitchen to get her plates washed few minutes after finishing her food. She thereafter rushed inside the house to freshen up and prepare for that Sunday Service. Daniel motioned to the dining room and beside the dining table as he peeped inside the serving plates. He opened one of them and the aroma filled his nostrils. He felt like eating the food, he didn’t know his boundary since he hugged Gloria. Abeg, I no dey eat. He muttered as he closed the plate but not exactly as Nora closed it up.
He switched off the television set and walked inside the room to take his bath too.

“When will you give your life to Christ?” Gloria suddenly chimed into the discussion. Alex scowled and hissed.
“I think you’ve done enough here, Gloria.” He whisked to his feet.
“Enough?” She smiled broadly. “Let’s go to church, Alex.” She said.
“Gloria, I said I am not ready to go to any church, na by force?”
“How would I get married to a man who wouldn’t teach my children about the ways of the Lord, Alex? No!”
“You have started again. Several ladies are out there and they want me badly.” Gloria chuckled and frowned almost immediately.
“Then get those ladies, Alex! If you don’t follow me to church today, that’s the end between us.” Alex laughed.
“I knew it, Gloria! I suspected from the scratch that you’ve been looking for my weak points so that you can go on with Daniel, right?” Gloria became indignant.
“Hell No! Why on earth would I do such? But why on earth are you also an unbeliever? Why? Why can’t you believe in God? Why do you find it difficult to go to church?”
“I told you earlier, Gloria. A man who would preach to an unbeliever, his own life must glorify your God first. It’s only if your God can show himself to me, if he can show how mighty he is, then, I’ll serve him.” He grinned.
“I’m off.” Gloria said and stood up.
“Alright, that‟s great!” Alex felt fulfilled as he lead the way to the door and locked it up immediately Gloria left.
