“My Wife And I …” season 2 episode 1


Gloria walked to the living room with a tray of soft drink and glass cup. She sat down and glimpse at her sister that was on seat.
“How’s your husband, sister?” She enquired. The lady smiled.
“We are doing well, dear. How’s Alex too?” She asked.
“Urgh.. Aunty Tope.” Gloria just called her name and kept mum.
“I know you are a pastor and you will be able to shed more light on this matter. I have been thinking on removing his engagement ring, ma’am.
I’m not ready to marry him.” She replied as she served Tope the drink. Tope was her immediate elder sister, married already and still hoping for the fruit of the womb. She was a pastor, just like her husband also.
“Why would you do that? I thought you have prayed and you told me God confirmed
Alex for you?”
“Sister, I only said that because I was in haste to get married. I didn’t know Jesus, I wasn’t a perfect Christian then, sister.” She said and paused for a while.
“As a Christian that I am now, I can’t enter into that marriage and be regretting it at the end.” She replied.
“My sister, what exactly is wrong?”
“Alex is not walking in God’s way! He’s a sinner, my sister. Though, I know I have no right to call him a sinner, but this, I’m sure he is.” She replied. “I only told you God confirmed Alex for me then, it was because I thought I was ageing and I needed to get married soon, I was thinking that no one would marry an old cargo if I grew older than that. I never knew I took the wrong step.”
“My sister, choosing in life is one of the most vital things in the life of
youths! The bible told us in the book of Proverbs chapter 16 verse 3, Commit thy works unto the Lord, and thy thoughts shall be established. If you don’t give him to go-ahead to work in your life, how do you expect him to work? You have to leave everything to him to solve!”
“But, I even thought I really heard God’s voice concerning Alex then, now I know it was what I was thinking that spoke to me. Now I know Alex is not for me. He drinks, he doesn’t go to church! He never believed there’s God.”
“That kind of man is not for you, Gloria. Marriage is like a home that two people enter, and immediately you enter, the door will be shut and you won’t be able to get out. It is written in the Holy Bible that divorcing is a sin, if you marry him and later divorce, God would ask you where you kept your eyes when choosing him. This is the best time to let go of Alex.”
“Thank you, sister.”
“Nowadays, people don’t know what courtship means again, dear. It is actually the time the two lovers will rub minds together, when you’ll be able to tell your spouse-to-be what you want and what you don’t! If all that are not sorted out and confirmed to be sorted out, there’ll be a problem in the marriage. Marriage is essential because any man you marry will be the one you’ll be with forever. Remember Proverbs 25:28, a man without selfcontrol is like a city broken into and left without walls. If you marry a man who’s not cultured, who’s not in God, who has been patching the relationship, the marriage will collapse.” Gloria heaved a sigh.

Daniel already stood by the mirror, holding his neck tie as he called on Nora. “Come and do your job.” He smiled.
“You’re troublesome, Daniel. Don’t tell me you can’t knot a tie.”
“You’re the one I want, no one else. Not even myself, dear.” He grinned. Nora collected the tie and knotted it as he put it on Daniel, standing so close to him as she helped him to dress up. Daniel was just smiling, when last did he enjoy that?
“Are we good to go?”
“Sure.” Nora nodded. They have eaten and were set for their various places of work immediately.
“You don’t have to pick your key, I’ll be the one to drop you off at work, I’ll come around to carry you likewise.” He told her.
“You don’t need to stress yourself, Daniel. I can do all these.” She smiled. “If you annoy me, I will carry you from the place to my car.” He chuckled.
“Okay, let’s go.” She grinned. Both rushed down the stairs and hopped inside the vehicle. It had been nice since they made up. Daniel pulled out of the house and slotted an audio compact disc into the CD player, listening to shout to the lord by Don Moen. The journey continued until a car started running after them, Daniel never knew, he loved the music so much that he had engulfed himself in it. Shortly, the car caught up with them.
Two hefty guys came down from the vehicle. They really knew what they were doing because it was a quiet arena where no car was passing that minute. Daniel rolled down to question why he was blocked, just then, he was shot by the head. He collapsed instantly. The guys went on to Nora and grabbed her. They threw her into the vehicle and sped off, leaving Daniel’s body in the car.
