I LOVE YOU, BUT”… (OPEYEMI AKINTUNDE EPISODE 28-30)
” I LOVE YOU, BUT…”
Inspired by the HOLY ONE
” Daddy! Daddy!” Freeman heard Venita’s voice from afar. He could tell she was running towards the room they were in. His fatherly instincts kicked in, he got out of the room and shut the door behind him, he couldn’t let his daughter see the abomination her mother was committing…
On getting out, he saw Remi standing them. Remi had a smile on her face but as soon as Remi saw his countenance, her smile disappeared. Remi was not a child, she knew whatever he saw must have been unpleasant. As Freeman left the door approaching Venita, Remi walked towards the door and opened the door carefully. She almost passed out seeing how her boss was rushing to wear her cloth, while Mrs Winter laid on the bed Naked…
” Jesus!” Remi said in a whisper. She stepped back from the door panting…
Winter realized the game plan had changed unexpectedly. The ball was no longer in her hand. Freeman had the ball now. Pamilerin would let guilt take her back to Freeman and she would automatically be the enemy.
” No way!” Winter reasoned
” Where are you going?”She asked
” I messed up, nothing like this should have happened…I don’t know what I was thinking” Pamilerim said crying
” Calm down Pamilerin, you didn’t do anything wrong?”
” Mrs Winter, I have done everything wrong, my husband just caught me sleeping with you! My God, what have I done?”
Winter rose up from the bed and approached her ..
” Hey…listen…You only followed your heart… Listen what just happened is good? This will prove if your husband really loves you. Let’s see if he is willing to fight for you, or with this he will run back to his girlfriend. ” Winter said
Pamilerin took a pause…
” Don’t play the guilty one here, if you do, he will trample upon you. Tell him, you decided to pay him back in his coin. For cheating on you, you decided to cheat on him for him to see how it hurts… If he begs you and ask for a second chance, you will know he still loves you and I promise to leave you both, but if he doesn’t do that, I am sorry, I won’t let you go, because Pamilerin I Love you so much I will never leave you to suffer…” Winter said to Pamilerin
Pamilerin saw the logic in it and she embraced the idea.
She took a deep breath and walked out of the room…
Ajoke met the absence of Pamilerin and her family. She asked the security man of their whereabouts… She knew Pamilerin and her family were always around during the weekends. That was why she decided to come unannounced. She had been having a strong negative feeling about Pamilerin. She had been seeing a coffin in her dream repeatedly with Pamilerin’s name on it.
The security had given her a bombshell. He said Pamilerin and the children had moved out of the house for close to two weeks. He said Freeman was the only one living in the house…
” You didn’t ask why?” Ajoke asked
” My Boss has been hardly around as well, he only comes home to sleep and when he comes in, he always has the tired look” he defended himself
” He is coming back tonight Right?”
” Alright I will wait for him”.
Dearest Mom, Maurine was on her way to Pamilerin’s house. She had just returned from her trip but instead of going home straight from the airport, she asked the driver to take her to Pamilerin’s home.
Timothy had told Mathew about his impromptu evangelism few hours earlier. Mathew was excited about it.
” I have a good feeling about this, what if the person you perceived was saved today was the lady I saw you bringing out of the Lion’s den.” Mathew said
” Right!” Timothy agreed
” So maybe we can be specific with the intercession. Let’s pray that the person that was saved this evening, may the Lord establish him/her, but I have a strong feeling she is a she…”
” Prophet Mathew!” Timothy teased…
” Tutored by Prophet Timothy!” Mathew replied laughing
Timothy enjoyed listening to his Columbian accent.
” Alright brother! We will go as the Lord leads us…Let us begin to bless the name of our God for His timely intervention in the life of this convert…”
Freeman sat on the chair in the living room faking his smiles as his daughters were playing with him. He watched as Pamilerin walked down the stairs. He could tell the woman coming down the stairs was not his wife; something had been tampered with.
” Mummy, Daddy said he is taking us with him.” Theresa said cheerfully.
” Girls go and pack up your stuff and Let’s be on our way.”
The girls hurried towards their rooms. Remi followed.
” I am not going with you!” Pamilerin said
Freeman didn’t look towards her direction. She disgusted him..
” I said I am not going back with you!” Pamilerin repeated
” I can’t remember asking you to come with me… I am taking my kids…”
” Oh! So the kids have been what has been keeping you with me? You want to use this opportunity to take my kids and marry her! Never! My kids are staying with me.”
” You said what? You want my kids, my GIRLS to stay here and learn evil from you, you want them to learn the despicable irritating lifestyle that serpent of a woman has initiated you into…Never! I will fight you with the last blood in me. It would do you good to let me take them in peace, or else I will expose you everywhere.
Imagine what your daughters will think of you when they hear that you started doing what you have preached against. Lesbianism…Pamilerin…Was I that bad? That you decided to cheat on me and you thought of doing it with a woman! Gush! What do you think your mother, I mean Mama Maurine will think of you?” Freeman said with so much controlled anger
Pamilerin stood in shame and indecision. She was about kneeling in apology but she heard Winter’s footsteps walking down the stairs. Followed was brief silence before Winter laid her hand on Pamilerin’s shoulder…
” Let him take them, we will get them back, I promise you…I told you he didn’t love you anymore…” Winter said
” You are evil you know that?…Winter or whatever you are, I don’t need your evil money anymore…Pamilerin, it’s a pity you let the devil come in between us, this woman ..this witch …did you know that she….” Freeman was about blurting out that Winter asked him to marry her, but Venita peeped from the room…
” Dad, please can you come up here and help me with my bags “
Freeman took a deep breath and swallowed the rest of his words…
First things First, he needed to get his daughters out of that devil’s hut.
To be continued
” I LOVE YOU, BUT…”
Remi couldn’t believe what had just happened. As she sat in the ride back home, she kept wishing she was dreaming.
” How can mummy prefer to stay back with Mrs Winter instead of going with her children and husband?” Remi questioned within herself.
She also thought of what she imagined Freeman had seen his wife doing.
” How can she be committing immorality with that woman…I knew it, I said that woman was a witch.” Remi thought
” Daddy, we can’t leave mummy with that woman. She is a witch, she will kill mummy ” Remi blurted out suddenly in the car.
” Yes Daddy… Mrs Winter behaves like an evil person. I don’t like her. Please let’s go back to pick mummy” Venita said as well.
” But, you were both there when she refused following us.”
” She has been bewitched Daddy. I read in a book that once a person is under the bewitchment of witches, they are no longer in charge of their senses. Mummy is no more thinking like her usual self. We have to help her.” Remi said schooling Freeman.
” You are right Remi, but I am sure if you study further, you will realise you can’t use physical force on someone that has been bewitched. You can only pray for them to be delivered from the bewitchment.” Freeman replied
” Will you pray for her?” Remi asked a very direct question. She had never spoken with so much confidence and directness to her boss but she needed to at this point.
Freeman did not give an answer because he wasn’t sure he would do it. He was emotionally shattered to say a word of prayer concerning anything.
” Daddy?” Venita said implying she was waiting for the answer to Remi’s question.
” I will” Freeman said
” A promise is a debt.” Juanita said.
They thought she had slept off, but she had been listening in on the conversation all along.
” I promise.” Freeman replied. He wanted his children to be happy, so he was ready to lie to them. He knew Pamilerin was out of their lives forever because he didn’t think he would be able to stand sleeping with her on the same bed after what he saw that evening. If the business investment pulled through, he would relocate to Ghana. Remarry and settle his family there. He would travel to Nigeria for his business dealings.
Freeman had seen the perfect future ahead.
” I don’t know if what I am doing is right? I am leaving my family for you.” Pamilerin said as she laid on Winter’s laps in the living room.
” You will get back your daughters. Once we relocate, you will ask for custody. Babe we have some strong backing”
” What strong backing?”
” There is a group of strong black lesbian women who support lesbian women who leave their husbands. They will set you up big time, help you get custody of your children and if your husband is becoming too troublesome, they can take him out of the way and recover all that he has for you. Pamilerin, you have a good case. If we do a video and send it to them, firstly in one week they would send you nothing less than fifty thousand dollars to start your life again.”
” Fifty thousand dollars…Why would they give me that?”
” You will say your husband caught you making out with your girlfriend and he sent you out of the house, took your daughters from you and now you are homeless and penniless”
” Babe, that could even make them send for you, they would arrange your visa to America. That way we can travel together.”
” My daughters?”
” They have the best international lawyers”
” But the video will go viral..people will call me names… I won’t be able to show my face in public…”
” No, who said anything about making the video public. The video is only for the society. We send it to their private mail.”
” Are you sure?”
” Give me some time to think about it.” Pamilerin said
” Your guardian you told me about, tell me more about her…” Winter asked. She needed to prepare Pamilerin against any intervention from that quarters. Pamilerin spoke about her with so much reverence and Winter perceived she was the kind of woman who could drag Pamilerin forcefully back to her marriage…
” She such a wonderful woman. You know like I told you, I came into her house as a maid, but she enrolled me in school and gave me an education. “
” Private or Public school?”
” Public school” Pamilerin answered
” Her kids? Public or Private?”
” Private school definitely!” Pamilerin said laughing. ” Infact they went to the best schools”
” While she sent you to a public school. I don’t like her, I mean if she really wanted to help you, she should have sent you to the same schools her children attended.”
” Well, I thought about that some times but I waved it aside thanking God for the average education I got.. if I wasn’t educated I won’t have met you” Pamilerin said laughing
” True…True but I can assure you, even if I had met you as an illiterate, I would have still married you anyway…” Winter said
Winter’s phone rang… It was her husband calling. The caller ID showed ” SH” which was the short form for Sweetheart.
Pamilerin took the phone…
” SH… Sweetheart? Hmm? Who is this?” Pamilerin asked
” SH? Sweetheart? Is that what SH means to you…For me it is “Stupid Human Being”. It is my dead husband’s brother calling me. He is begging to marry me after his brother’s death…” Winter said
” Are you serious?” Pamilerin replied buying the lie.
” Yes, his name is Andrew…So ugly a man, let me see if I have one of his pictures…”
” Which course did she go for?” Ajoke could tell Freeman was telling her lies. She could read it in Remi’s eyes.
Remi wished she could tell Mama what was happening. She knew Ajoke was not any better than Winter as regards diabolism, but Remi knew Ajoke would go to the house and cause trouble. That trouble could bring Pamilerin home.
Remi was about opening her mouth to say the truth but Freeman stared hard at her.
On getting home, they had met Mama at the entrance of the house. Freeman had quickly instructed the girls not to say a word about their mother’s whereabouts.
” Tell Grandma your mother went for a course. “
” That would be lying.” Venita said. Theresa and Juanita were asleep already
” It is important we do that for now.. Remi take the girls to their room.”
” Freeman, where is my daughter? Is my daughter dead?”
” No mama, she is not… You can call her number..”
” She has blocked my number from calling her.” Ajoke said
” I don’t believe the story about her going for a course.”
The sound of a car horn cut in between their conversation…
” Is that her?” Ajoke said
Freeman couldn’t say a word. He was ready to cut off Pamilerin’s head if she stepped into the house.
Instead of answering Ajoke, he rushed out but on seeing the car blaring the horn, he knew the day was far from been over…
To be continued
” I LOVE YOU, BUT…”
Dearest Mom also did not buy the lie about the course.
“Freeman, look me in the eye and tell me your wife went on a course.” Maurine said in a cool tone yet firm.
” Ye…No…” Freeman stutterred
” Thank you.So where is she?”
” At a friend’s place?” Freeman said but Remi coughed.
” Remi go to your room, Now!” Freeman said
” Grandmas , mummy is not with a friend, she is with a witch that wants to scatter the family..” Remi said in a rush
“Remi …Remi…Keep quiet” Freeman said charging towards her.
” Freeman…let her be…” Maurine said
“Remi, where is my daughter? ” Ajoke said rushing towards Remi…
Winter had the feeling she needed to get Pamilerin out of that house. She knew if Freeman was smart, he would bring elders to the house very early in the morning… Winter knew it was dangerous leaving in the morning.
Her game plan had changed. Now Pamilerin was the one being played not Freeman.Her new game plan was simple. Get Pamilerin to kill Freeman and when Pamilerin gets Freeman’s money, she would swindle Pamilerin and run back to Canada. Simple as ABC…
” Babe, Let’s go have fun tonight…” Winter said. Her plan was for them to escape for a few days. She had to trick Pamilerin into leaving the house.
” Fun ? Tonight? Where? By the pool?” Pamilerin asked very amused. The word ” Fun” made her heart jump in excitement. Marriage had made her lose her sense of fun. Her years had been filled with serving Freeman and the girls. There were times she suggested they travelled for a few days, but she was always the person to pull down the suggestion because of the money involved. Pamilerin didn’t like spending money, she wanted to save all the money she could get in the world. She came from a poor background and she had sworn never to be poor.
” No, out of the house. I heard of this private beach house where a lot of crazy fun things happen. Let’s go have some crazy fun” Winter said in a tempting way
” Ok, that sounds nice but What if I see someone who knows me there.” Pamilerin said
” I can assure you no one that lives like you will be there…” Winter said “Entrance fee is 500k per couple.”
” Five hundred thousand Naira for a night ?” Pamilerin was beyond amazed
” What’s happening there that will make them take Five hundred thousand naira from me?” Pamilerin said
” Let’s get there first…” Winter said giggling like a child.
Pamilerin’s phone rang, it was Dearest Mom calling…
” Talk about the angel. The woman we were talking about just now is calling …” Pamilerin said
” Angelic devil you mean!” Winter said
Pamilerin was about picking up, when Winter took the phone from her. Unknown to Pamilerin, Winter intentionally received the call and placed the phone faced down on the table…
” Babe, what are you planning to do, pick her call? You want to spoil our evening…” Winter said
” No, I guess she is back and wants to check on me.” Pamilerin replied
” Or you want to know what she got for you from abroad?” Winter teased
” Buy something for me? That would be in my dreams…Dearest Mom can be selfish when it comes to buying things from overseas”
” Yeah, like we were saying the other time, just like she sent her kids to private school and I had to go to a public school, the same way she hardly bought me stuff from abroad. Most times, I got lucky when what she bought for her daughters didn’t fit them well…”
Dearest Mom couldn’t believe what she was hearing over the phone… She had her eyes wide opened in shock. Her heart raced the fastest it had in years.
She picked up her bag, stood up and walked out of the living room into her car. Freeman wondered what was happening…
” Mom! What’s wrong?”
Dearest Mom looked up at Freeman with tears in her eyes…
” So despite everything I did for your wife, to her it wasn’t enough… Jerry, let’s go home” Maurine said
” Mama, what is it, what did she say ?” Ajoke said in a pleading voice…
Maurine sobbed like a baby as Jerry drove off…
Winter went to where the phone was. She saw that that Maurine had not ended the call…Winter smiled knowing she had achieved her purpose. Winter ended the call.
Winter quickly sent a text…
” Thank you ma for all you ever did for me, though it was second best to what you gave your daughters. I still appreciate it. I hope to repay you financially someday for every dime you spent on me. Please do not call me again. I am happy to be free from you forever…” Pamilerin
Winter sent the text, deleted it from the sent folder. She blocked the number from calling Pamilerin.
Dearest Mom received the text…
She read the text over 10 times, at first the text broke her heart, but at some point she suspected something was off. The text didn’t have was the usual tone of Pamilerin’s text. She didn’t use any emoji.
” Maybe she told her friend to send the message… I heard her voice saying terrible things about me.” Maurine resolved in her heart.
After Maurine left, Ajoke was not planning to hold her peace…
” Take me to where she is this night!”
” Mummy, it has to wait till morning. The place is two or three hours from here”
” It doesn’t matter, I must get to my daughter tonight. What if she dies before morning “
” All the better…” Freeman said under his breath
” What did you say?” Ajoke said holding Freeman’s shirt collar…
” Mummy, I said all the better” Freeman said raising his voice. It was obvious he had lost it. All his pent up emotions were about to explode ..
” Mummy, it is better she dies than what she is doing now. Mummy, Pamilerin is sleeping with a woman.” Freeman said with tears flowing down his face…
Ajoke stepped back in shock…
” God forbid!”
” Yes! God Forbid!”
” With the witch? “
” Ha! Pamilerin has killed me, the woman wants to take her Glory and kill her, that is what some high level witches do…Ha! Freeman you must take me there now, please.”
” Mummy, please I can’t drive there tonight. I am exhausted…I drove there this evening and drove back again. I can imagine what my blood pressure would be reading now… I am sorry mummy, I can’t take you there, but I can give you the address, and get you a taxi if they will be willing to go that route by this time ..”
” Ok, get me a taxi ” Ajoke was resolute and unswerving. She was going to face the witch that night.
Freeman on the other hand had thought Ajoke would agree to go the next morning, but he could tell there was no stopping her. A part of him wanted to see Pamilerin again and beg her to come home, but the other part of him was still very angry at her…
Love however conquered…
” Let me take you there…” Freeman said to Ajoke…
