Now, back to our story…

Hawt Pastor caught my exclamation and quickly inquired “what’s the matter? Is there a problem?”

“I hope this is not going to take long, an emergency just came up, and I would have to leave very quickly”, I responded after taking a second to gather my breath.

He just said “Hmmm”, and then stepped aside to allow me go into the office.

I went into the empty office and he came in close behind me. I quickly sat down in one of the two visitor’s seats opposite his big seat, expecting him to go and seat in his own seat opposite me. When he leaned against the table on my own side, I became very worried. My eyes darted to the door, to ensure that he hadn’t bolted it from inside. It wasn’t bolted. That was a bit of relief.

He began “Oyin, I know you have been through a lot in the last few months, in trying to settle down. I’m sure there’s a lot more that has happened than the little I know, but even that little is a lot.”

I nodded, wondering where he was going with this.

“I have a proposition to make, and no matter how difficult and hurt you might be at first, I want you to really consider it first before making a decision. In fact, I will not rush you into making such a decision.”

He then placed a hand on my shoulder, and the alarm bells in my head rose to an alarming level. I began to shake my head and began mumbling “this cannot be happening, this cannot be happening, not you too, not you too”. How could Hawt Pastor want to be setting coded P with me? The thought was repulsive in every way I could consider.

“What, Oyin? I asked you to listen to the proposal before jumping to a conclusion.” With that, I heard the door open and as I turned back, I saw a familiar figure enter but I couldn’t make out the face initially, since it was silhouetted. Then I saw who it was and I let out a sigh and then a shocked “What!” the sigh was a sigh of relief. Relief that flooded me that what Hawt Pastor wanted was far away from what I had begun to assume that he wanted. Then the shock was because of the person that just entered. Standing right in front of me, was Femi Tosh.

I jumped up from my sit as he approached; and lashed out at Hawt Pastor, not caring that he was my spiritual leader. I was that enraged by the sight of Femi. The memories of the night I had hung my hopes out in the wind and he left me high and dry looking like a fool rushed back into my mind vividly as if I was still sitting at that table. I was not ready to hear whatever he had to say.

“Is it because of this vindictive fool you brought me here? This grown man who was so immature that he had to play boyish tricks to get back at me in my most vulnerable spot?”

Then I turned on Femi himself “and you are still a child, if you want to talk to me, and you cannot come yourself, you had to go through somebody else. I don’t even want to hear what you have to say.” I began to cry. I cry when I get very angry and emotional over anything.

Hawt Pastor tried to calm me down, but I wasn’t having any of it. I really am tired of all these men walking in and out of my life and feeling like they make me complete. So now that he has come, I should be happy he has come and I should rejoice and be glad at the prospects of being married? The last few months have taught me that if I cannot be with you even if we were never going to marry, then I shouldn’t want to marry you.

I stormed out of the office angrily, not bothering to conceal the tears streaming down my face. I unconsciously wished that Femi would follow me pleading, but I was alone all the way to the car. Unserious nonsensical somebody!

I drove straight home, as if possessed by a barrage of speed demons. When I got there, Gloria was back in my house, waiting in her car. When she saw me in the state I was, she could not say anything, she just helped me into the house. “Oyin, what is it?” she inquired.

Before I could answer, my doorbell rang. I don’t know why I thought it had to be Femi at the door, but I sprang up and raced to the door, wanting to scream a thousand vitriolic words into his face. When I got to the door, I realized it was Toke. I had not responded to her sms and hadn’t taken her calls so she had come to check me. I opened the door and stood aside to allow her in.

She began accusing me at the door “didn’t you see my missed calls and my text message? You didn’t even bother to call back and you were just at home.” she had been crying too and didn’t see I was in tears at first. When she did look at my face and saw it was tear stricken, she let out a gasp. “Oyin, what is it? Why are you crying?”

I didn’t answer, I just let turned away from the door and she kept asking what the issue was as she followed me. The moment she entered the living room and saw Gloria, unbelievably, Toke went ballistic.

“What is she doing here?” she shouted at the top of her voice. Toke isn’t very big, so having her shout like she was going to do something evil to Glo was scary.

Gloria tried to speak up “Toke it’s not what…”

Toke didn’t let her finish “Shut up! You just have to keep spoiling everyone’s joy, because you don’t have any. First you grabbed Ossy, and then did what you did at Oyin’s wedding. And now this. Of all the men in the world that you could have slept with, it just had to be my Lumi! How could you?”

Gloria broke down into tears “it was years ago, before you ever dreamt of meeting him, Toke. How was I supposed to know? How?”

Toke broke down into tears. “You just had to spoil it. Olumide was my perfect picture, and you soiled that perfection. I hate you Gloria. I hate you so!”

“Stop it!” I screamed. “Stop it, both of you!”

“Toke, listen to yourself. Just listen to yourself! Gloria is supposed to be blamed for something that happened between two adults over three years ago? You have set Lumi up in your mind as picture perfect and cannot allow anything affect that picture. So you want to blame Gloria for everything. Do you think this is easy for her?”

Toke was hysterical “I know, Oyin, I know. I’m afraid he will leave me. I slapped him when he told me and called him a small boy. I have tried to call him since and he has refused to take my calls.”

“The let him be. How did he expect you to react to the news that he has slept with your friend? With joy and smiles? If he is serious about getting married, then he will come for you. He chose to tell you about it only after he had proposed and you had accepted his proposal. He did act like a small boy.” I responded

“There’s one more thing I haven’t told you guys,” Toke said quietly, a kind of quiet speaking that told me what I was about to hear would shock me to my bones. “And what might that be?” I ventured.

“I’m pregnant for Lumi.”

“Does he know?” I asked

“Yes he does, I told him just before he told me about him and Glo”.

“Then he should man up and pursue the woman he wants to marry and the soon to be mother of his child if he really wants her. Enough of chasing all these men!”

Toke became quiet, and even Gloria began to look at me intently. I could sense they were wondering what had come over Oyin to make her talk like this, this kind of hard talk hardly came from me. Toke was typically the one that talked that way. In the quiet that followed, Gloria asked the question. “Oyin, what happened to you at church today?”

“Femi Tosh was waiting for me in Hawt Pastor’s office.”

They both let out oohs and long hisses, and then Toke asked “what did the clown want. He wants to do another vengeful ritualistic dramatization abi?”

At that moment, my doorbell rang again. We all became quiet. Who could be at the door? “Who is there?” I called out.

“It’s me, please open up,” a male voice responded from the other side of the door.

  1. So excited to be nominating! Hope u guys r as excited as I am! From the day I read d first episode, I knew something exciting awaited this year’s blog awards! There would be no need to campaign for votes if the 100000 of us who read and subscribe to this blog make it our civic duty to go and nominate! Remember to confirm ur vote via ur mail!

  2. I mean, seriously?! What could femi tosh want now? And miz Gloria seriously over reacted, like common! Slapping ur boo and calling him names when he was man enough to give you such info? As to who’s at the door now, it had better be Lumi.

  3. Damnit dude!!!I’m gonna nominate the hell outta your blog.this is really interesting reading about all this drama makes me look forward to Mondays, something I haven’t done in almost a decade.cheers mate.

  4. Hmmnnnn, my girls are now lending each other brain! Looks like this is d turn around point o! They r gradually all gona find hubby!
    TL, nice decoy with d hawthorn pastor angle!

  5. That must be Femi at the door. After feeling cocky with his life, he still didn’t get married all the while. Lol. This thing should end in the next episode o. I’m tired of waiting for mondays to come.

    • I second that!!
      I just started reading the entire series today (well, technically I started yesterday, and even though it’s now 1:14am i.e. a new day, as I haven’t slept it’s still today), and I’m scared that I’ll get to the last episode, and find that it has not finished, and that I will become an addict like everyone else looking forward to the next and the next and the next etc. I dont think I can cope. (Wailing smiley goes here).
      Although, I guess it will take away the “monday blues”, so maybe it won’t be all that bad afterall.

  6. Yay!!! First to comment.
    Heading to work and i’ve had to refresh this page God knows how many times since 7:15..

    Lobatan… Toke should have taken it easy na and tried not to get preggers for this guy till she was married to him na…
    Gosh things are really getting exciting, TL this one is short o… You should have atleast let us in on some more details..

  7. Finally the girls get the message. There’s no point chasing a man up and down. If he wants u, he will hunt u. Just sit still, be beautiful and of good character.

  8. Haha! Pls let me lend a helpin hand in giving dat Femi Tosh a high five on d face,Msheewww, Toke shld chill jare,she’s so n love wit dis Lumi,I sha hope he’s 4 real. Good work Bro!

  9. Nominated ur blog, u deserve it. So much suspense in ur story leaves me coming back for more, like seriosly I wz up by midnight today hoping this episode wz there already. Nice 1 Tunde Leye.

  10. But Tunde, y do u like hanging us like dis eh? Why?!!

    So d person at d door is DEF!! Femi Tosh… Na wa o!! Him get mind sha.. Using Hawt Pst to get to Oyin (nice move). He knew what he did was SOOOOoooo not nice in any way it was HARSH! Wonder what he has to say sef…

    Lumi probably giving Toke time out to talk wif d girlz.. Den wen dey r both thinking rationally n not angrily dey can agree to sumthing…

    Glo… Well only God knows what her fate will be…

  11. *sighs* 22 long weeks b4 oyin gave herself brain! In reality it takes longer than that for most ladies to get brain tho… *rme* what does toke mean by slapping her man? When she fell for a small boy she dinor know? MtSchewww…whatever comes out of it,she deserves for glo,abeg she’s nt to blame…@TL,from 3months to almost 6months..d story has been extremely rewarding tho..wanna say thanks for thrilling us for d past 22 mondays…VOTING TIME 😀

  12. Oyin clegg, oyin clegg, oyin clegg, wish she was real, wish I could see her in person…. And have just one thing to say to her…… Looool…. What are u all thinking???? Mchewwwwwwww dirty minded pals…….

    But seriously, Toke herself should grow up & face her issues… Out of aall of them, she shouldn’t even complain cos, God has being faithful to her… She caused that rift with her childish act… Kmft

    • We easily forget it was Oyin who bruised his heart first…. The saying “revenge is a dish best served cold” is applicable to the whole Oyin and Femi saga…. Payback isn’t just a “bitch” you know, its also a “male dog”….. What’s good for the goose is good for the gander and all that!
      I think its important to remember as ladies that let your past be the past! If Oyin didn’t want to “eat her cake and have it” why did she forget what she’d done to Femi and just let him remain in her past?……I’m a lady BTW, just one who knows that what you sow, you reap.

  13. Oyin ur blood is too hot.. Albeit rightly so this time sha.. But you shoulda listened to what hawt Pastor had to say. ℓ☺ℓ. Tunde well done. U deserve the award jor!

  14. Now I know why the last episode was short hmmmmmmm glad u made up for it. I knew femi tosh was gonna come back they always do.

  15. Now I know why the last episode was short hmmmmmmm glad u made up for it. I knew femi tosh was gonna come back they always do. Lovely episode

  16. Hmmm am loving this O°˚˚˚!…sum1 temme has dis episode finish… ♍ε̲̣̣̣̥ am stil reading O°˚˚˚! ….Mr Tee Ur head is dere. Thanks…Nice 1.

  17. Just nominated you Tunde. Please take my 50naira advice ehn, put this on tv abeg cos ℓ̊†̥ will §Ơ̴̴̴̴̴̴͡ make sense and if i were you, Monalisa Chinda will be Glo, Toke will be Jackie Appiah and my sweet Gen Nnaji will play Oyin Cleg. Abeg when this comes T̶̲̥̅Ơ̴͡ pass, d̸̸̮̮̃♥̸̨Ϟ’†̥ forget T̶̲̥̅Ơ̴͡ pay ♍ε̲̣̣̣̥ for borrowing you small brain oh(tongue out)….. I feel priviledged T̶̲̥̅Ơ̴͡ be given the opportunity T̶̲̥̅Ơ̴͡ nominate a genius like you. Come closer lemme give U̶̲̥̅̊ a kiss on your forehead mwuaaaaah**** well done!

    • @miss karina, I think Mercy Johnson(with all her headlamps,double exhausts and bulgy eyes-for rme) would make a better Oyin Clegg compared to the flat-assed,quite too tushed, Genevieve. Lol.

  18. hmmmm…like Tunde srzly come u writing from a girls perspective is so acurate….huhh?… yeh nd dis weeks episode is too short jor….

  19. What beats me is why oyin was not patient to hear them out, no matter aw bad he acted. Then, toke should take a chill pill jor, was glo meant to be a sooth sayer. Glo just has a lot to deal wiv!!
    Me voting,m voting. Voting all the way

    • point, very gud point, but genny not only has attitude, she comes wit a truck load of class,she is chic and pulls of her characters so well, anoda person would b nse ikpi etim,she would b perfect fof toke.

  20. Oyin Ooº°˚˚˚°ºoO , giv femi tosh a̶̲̥̅̊ chance, this third time might jst ϐ d charm…U̶̲̥̅̊ neva can tell….nice write up TL *wink*

  21. Totally support Femi for humiliating Oyin! Biko, I’m tired of all these Lagos girls who are hunting for a “ready-made” man. If you are so big, why do you need a man’s money to chop?!? Whatever happened to two people building their future “together.” Haba, Femi was totally responsible, hard-working, family oriented, AND smart, but Oyin was too blinded by her love for easy big money and jilted him… if I were Femi, I would have humiliated her some more sef…

    All water under the bridge sha. Now that Femi has gotten his revenge outta his system and Oyin is way more matured, I think they will make a great couple. 🙂 Lesson for Lag girls, be patient and keep your eyes on the prize – a good + smart man who loves you for who you are and God helping him, will build his own empire with your help… gbam!

    Ps: voting now. You totally deserve the awards.

  22. Pls don’t start shortening our story ooooo, my bis expired early dis morning, and ur blog was d first reason I had to subscribe sharp sharp. Me, I have voted sinceeeeeeEe

  23. Hmmm…*thinking*….d reason 4 me choosin geny as toke is dat toke is small accordin2TL nd oyin is endowed, ini ll also b gud as oyin

  24. Why is oyin being so dramatic…she hurt Femi first,wat he did to her wasn’t even as bad…some dudes wulda done worse..she shuld get over it jare…she was being stupid in d first place tinkn he’ll take her bak like dat after using him to do mumu…Msheew…

  25. #ThatAwkwardMoment when Femi Tosh is not actually considering getting back to Oyin and is there for a totally different reason… hehe!!
    till next week sha 😦 and that lumi berra come n look for toke
    learnt a lot from this story sha and the comments too!!

    • Tk U̶̲̥̅̊ o. Exactly my thot! Oyin should have at least waited to hear τ̣̣ђё hawt pastor out. Maybe femi’s presence was just a coincidence. Thumbs up TL!

  26. I rily don’t wanna believe Femi Tosh is coming back to beg Oyin ( it just can’t b jor). Oyin rily did wash him
    !!! And she deserved evry bit of his payback and revenge.

  27. Finally some brain among the ladies…but it will be too bad if femi came back cos of another reason not to beg oyin, and wat is wrong with toke, slapping her man, she is the one acting like a baby………finally, its time they all sit and relax and let the men do the chasing.
    Glo, has had enough drama in her at this stage, I feel for her. Can’t wait till next week………………..

  28. Nice one, but too short. I like the turn of events. Oyin had better be very wary of Femi Tosh, that guy does not forgive easily and he will stop at nothing to get his pound of flesh. The same goes for Toke, that Lumi must ve proposed to her because she is pregnant for him not becos of d so-called love. Lumi is used to sleeping with his elder sisters, he is a play boy. Thanks TL.

  29. Tunde,tunde,tunde !!!!.ave bEen reading dz page since monday morning,wishing some magic will continue d story buh am still waiting!!!.be nice and continue d story.not fair I have to wait till monday.really love d blog.Good job
