My mother inlaw visited.
I didn’t know why she came home that
evening, but I had a feeling David might have
told her that I was back from America.
After my father inlaw died some years ago,
she took over the twelve branches of Hills of
grace ministries. She accused every pastor In
each branch for killing her husband, and
arrested everyone of them.
Hills of grace ministry used to be Church of
Jesus ministries, but she and her only son
David (my husband) had the church changed
with new pastors and members.
Georgina being a boss lady wanted
everything to be done in her own way at all
The church members referred to her as the
queen mother. She was bossy, overruling,
and very authoritative.
“I heard you were back Ekom.” Her voice
sounded slightly rough as though some
unexpected emotions had partially locked her
“Yes mom.” I replied softly.
“I came here for a lot of reasons. Number
one; the congregation of Hills ministries is
tired of you. I am tired of you, my son is
tired of you!” She said meanly in British
“My husband never said that.”
“Does he need to say it? I am telling my
son’s mind. He has been married to you for
12 years without a child of your own! we do
not need adopted strange kids to come
inherit my late husband’s sweat! He needs
children, I need grandchildren. My son is not
Abraham in the bible! He is David Okoye, he
is my son. not the son of Terah!”
Her stern Visage hardly invited my
confidence, but I was used to that.
“Those kids are my adopted kids, those girls
you see? my husband and i agreed to adopt
them together. they are our children. ”
“Go born yours! it’s either you gave birth to
them or you didn’t! you are barren!
leave Ifeoma to have my grand child in this
house, in peace! After that I will join them
together in holy matrimony after she has put
My heartbeat slowed inside my chest. As I
turned to David who was momentarily stuck
“I am still married to my husband. we married
in church. He is a man of God.”
“David in the bible was a man of God,
Solomon was a man of God. All these men
were married to countless women. A man is
entitled to as many wives as he wants. If you
don’t agree, you can sign this.” She handed
a paper to me, I knew what it was. But I
didn’t touch it, I didn’t get it from her.
“I won’t sign for a divorce!” I said angrily as
tears moistened my eyes.
“When you’re tired Ekom, you will sign and
leave my son’s life!”
“it’s okay mom.” David said soothingly.
“She is my wife. She has the right to counter
this. I know what I want. the church
shouldn’t hear about this yet .” he said and
stood to walk away.
Georgina flew from her seat and started to
shout, her voice was unsteady.
“You know nothing! I warned you against
marrying a Calaber woman, but you didn’t
listen. you must do as I say! marry ifeoma
and let go of this demon!”
“Don’t talk to Ekom that way mom, she is
still my wife!” David screamed!
The kids ran and hugged me so tight, they
were so scared.
It was after Georgina left that I felt chilled by
fear. it was the worse moment of my life.
That night I prayed that God should change
things around for my good. That night, David
came to my bed, while the kids were asleep.
