In Ayo and Nifemi’s house. Ayo is seen prostrating for Nifemi to please return his voice)
Nifemi: It is not a difficult matter, if you can promise not to tell anybody, I will loose you. I also know it is a shame for my husband to be barking like a dog. But I don’t want you to frustrate my plans. Will you keep our secret, secret?
Ayo: (He nods in affirmation and also prostrates for Nifemi)
Nifemi: Okay, move near me.
(Ayo runs toward Nifemi. She touches his mouth and speaks) Let your voice be restored! Oya speak out!
Ayo: ( He speaks out) Ha! Thank you! Thank you. (He jumps for joy and wants to run out of the room).
Nifemi: Come here. Here me and hear me right. Now that your voice is restored, you must never tell anybody. Let our secret, be secret or else you are playing with premature death. Do you understand?
Ayo: (Like an imbecile and reluctantly) Ye-es!
Nifemi: That is good. Now, let us sleep. At least you need to show that you are the husband. So, the bride is waiting for the groom’s action. Let’s sleep! (Ayo joins her on the bed but fear is written all over his face).
Ayo: (He does not know when he speaks out) Ha! I am finished!
Nifemi: What did you just say?
Ayo: I did not say anything.
Nifemi: You had better not talk. Oya! The jolly husband, come and sleep with your ‘Holy Spirit’ revealed wife. (She moves closer to him on the bed)
The next day
(In Ayo and Nifemi’s bedroom Ayo is still sleeping. Nifemi who has already woke up comes in to wake Ayo)
Nifemi: Ha! Ah! Our daddy! You are still sleeping! Oya wake up and lead us in the family altar. ‘Sebi’ you are the head of the family.
(Ayo rises from bed and prays panicking)
Ayo: (He prays. Nifemi later speaks out)
Nifemi: See, let your heart be at rest. I have decided not to kill you. I don’t want people to start suspecting me. I don’t want your family to think that I am a witch or am I a witch?
Ayo: (Reluctantly) No o! You are not a witch.
Nifemi: But listen, I will henceforth be the husband while you will be the wife. I will be performing every duty of the husband except for the time of sexual intercourse. All duties of the wife shall be performed by you except for the time of pregnancy, labor and delivery which will be performed by me or you don’t want me to bear children for you?
(Ayo did not answer)
You did not answer me! Well, that is your own cup of tea. Thank God we have been joined together in holy matrimony. And it has been written that those that God has joined together, let no man put asunder. There is no divorce in Christian marriage. Well, I will like to take beans and fried plantain for my breakfast. Therefore, arise and go to the kitchen for food preparation.
(Ayo stands reluctantly. He walks towards the door. Nifemi speaks)
Ayo, sorry, my husband, don’t forget our agreement. No communication with third parties. Keep our secret, secret. Okay?.
This is getting more interesting, watch out for the next episode if Ayo was able to keep their secret, secret or not…
