Diary Of A Christian Brother: My Deceitful Wife 3
After four Months
(Bro. Ayo and Sister Nifemi have just been joined together as husband and wife. The wedding just ended and the couple is seen hand-in-hand in a native uniform attire. They enter Bro. Ayo’s apartment smiling. Sister Nifemi sits on one of the cushion chairs. She is tired. Bro. Ayo draws her to her feet)
Bro. Ayo: (Draws Nifemi to her feet) Beautiful bride, let us offer thanksgiving prayers to God before you retire into the chair.
(Sister Nifemi stands up reluctantly as Bro. Ayo starts to pray)
God, we thank you for the success of this wedding. As we start this new family, God, start with us, build with us……
(As Ayo prays with zeal, Sister Nifemi opens her eyes looking at Bro. Ayo with pity but she says ‘Amen’ aloud intermittently so that Ayo will not notice her nonchalant attitude to prayers).
Sister Nifemi: ( With her eyes opened) Amen!
Ayo: (Continues to pray) Every power that may want to destroy this marriage shall be consumed by fire in Jesus’ name. (Sister Nifemi did not say ‘Amen’) Help us oh Lord. May we not be put to shame in Jesus’ name.
Sister Nifemi: Amen
Ayo: We thank you because you will embark on this marital journey with us in Jesus’ name.
Nifemi: Amen! Amen!! Amen!!! In Jesus’ name (Nifemi shouted a deceitful amen)
A week after
(In the house of Ayo and Nifemi, Ayo is seen soliloquizing)
Ayo: I am not comfortable with this strange voice I hear every night since we got wedded. When I wake up to see the person speaking, I always see nobody.
(Nifemi comes in from an outing)
Nifemi: I am back dear! Why are you talking to yourself? Who are you discussing with?
Ayo: Welcome dear. I am ruminating over the strange voice I always hear every night. You said you have never heard it but it is real. I am seriously not comfortable with it.
Nifemi: (Hisses unperturbed) Is that all? I am sure it is the spirit of fear in you that is making you hear a strange voice every night. I want to believe that you need deliverance. You had better open up to the pastor so that he can organize deliverance session for you.
Ayo: Sister Nifemi, this is not the time for jokes. I am serious. I want to suggest that we wake up by midnight today to pray. I know we shall be victorious in Jesus’ name.
Nifemi: (Reluctantly) Amen o. but you will excuse me this night. I am worn out. You can go ahead and take the prayers on our behalf. Thank God you are the head and priest of the family. Kindly stand in the gap for us. I want to sleep well tonight. God will answer our prayers. See you later.
(Nifemi walks into the bedroom. Ayo looks at her with surprise as she goes in. Ayo is lost in thought. He later speaks out).
Ayo: Hun-un! Is this the wife I married? But Sister Nifemi was not like this before we married. She loved singing and praying. But she has relented lately. Hope she is not been influenced by her colleagues at work? May God take control o because I am afraid o. I don’t want to regret this marriage o. Well, I will take the prayers alone and I know victory will come in Jesus’ name. (Ayo also enters the bedroom)
Who or what is responsible for the strange voice? Did Ayo later pray that night and what happened next? All these would be revealed in the next episode…
