In love with my mother in-law




 Episode 1.

I was seated outside my room and fell

into a very big thought.

ME: How can I cope been jobless. I’ve

spent 5years in the higher institution

and also spent one year in NYSC,

making it six years but yet no job. I’ve

supplied my CV to many companies but

none of them have call me.

Am now man enough to take care of

my mum since my dad is late but I

just don’t understand my life.

Am totally confused,

I don’t know what to do. I’ve even

searched for mini-job yet I still didn’t succeed.

End of the month is fast approaching

and I haven’t gather money for my

house fee. chai!! igwe, when will this end?

I promised myself that am not gonna bother my mum

Again about anything that concerns me.

** as I was still meditating,

my phone rang and it was my friend Val.

I ignored his call because I wasn’t in

the mood to answer call that moment.

He called me the second time and I

still ignored him.

Val was my roommate when we’re still

in the university.

He got a job after our service. He is

such a kind person that everybody can be

happy to be his friend but there is something

about him which I hate.

Val can give you any amount of fish

you wish to have but,

he can never teach you how to fish.

He’d invite me to his house and when

I want to go, he’d give me some cash to take care of myself.

He had told me to park in to his house

but am an independent someone so I


I stood up from where I was and went

inside my room.

I went to the bathroom and took my

bath. I wore my cloth

and went out to look for something to

cool my head off.

For some of you who has been judging

some men who takes alcohol when

they’re upset or have a huge problem

that they didn’t know how to go

about it.

We took alcohol in that situation

because it bring our emotion down.

I do likely took alcohol only when am

upset because it makes me to sleep,

then when I wake up,

I can be able to fine a solution to that

matter but if I didn’t,

I may do undo. Alcohol isnt a solution

to a problem but it makes us think

after and know how to tackle the

problem in an amicable way.

Am not talking about those that abuse


I drank one bottle of ompa (hero) and

I started feeling dizzy,

I went home and slept off.

I woke up around 4:30am.

I sat on my bed.

I thought for a while,

and then come in conclusion to join

some of this guys that are working in

a building site.

That day was Sunday so I did my

morning chores

like, tidying up my room and doing

some press up and other exercises

done inside the room.

I got prepared and went to church.

Thereafter, I

prepared my Sunday meal,

after eating ,I laid on the floor and

was playing game and in the same

time playing music.

As I was doing that,

I slept off and wake up by a knock on

my door.

I stood up and opened my door,

it was Val and his girl friend Yvonne.

I ushered them in. **

YVONNE :Igwe good afternoon.

ME : good afternoon my dear, you look

so beautiful today,

wow !!! I can see my friend Val is really

trying for where you’re.

VAL: **both of them laughed** igwe

you can never stop amusing me. why

are you not picking up your calls


ME: forgive me jareh, I wasn’t with my

phone when you called.

VAL: dress up, let’s go out.

**I entered inside and took my bath,

wore my cloth and we dashed out.

Val came with his car,

he told Yvonne to sit at the back and I

sat at the front.

we drove to one restaurant,

we all placed our orders and it was

brought to our table.

We started discussing,

I made them to laugh away their

sorrow with the way

am talking.

We were there till evening ,Val and

Yvonne were kissing each other so I

became jealous and I told Val that I’ll

be going home.

He told Yvonne that he want to drop

me in my house.

He dropped me at the junction and

drove back.

There was a lady that parked her car

beside the road and was trying to lose

the tyre,

I pitied her and went closer to her. **

ME : hello sister, good evening.

LADY:Evening, how may I help?

ME : am so sorry for interrupting you.

It seems you’ve a flat tyre….

LADY: yes,,,,,,, I couldn’t see any

vulcanizer around so I decided to do it


ME :Eyaa! so sorry for that. but you

Would’ve ask someone to help you and

do it instead of stressing yourself……

please stop stressing this your

beautiful skin with this spanner. **she


LADY: Can you help me and look for

any vulcanizer?

ME :don’t worry, give me the


she handed it to me.

I losed the tyre and changed it for her.

She thanked me.

“are you living around here? “she

asked. **

ME :yes.

LADY: I’m jummy by name……..

ME: And am Igwe.

JUMMY :Wow!!! nice meeting you..

ME :nice meeting you too. **she

brought out her handbag from the car

and gave me her card. **

JUMMY : call me when you’ve chance.

bye….. **she entered her car and

drove off**

Now igwe’s journey begins!!!


Episode 2.

I stood there and was looking at her as

She drove off.

I went home with a bit joy.

when I got home, i took my bath and

laid down on the bed.

Val call came in and I picked up. He

Asked me if I’ve gotten home and I told him


I asked him about Yvonne and he told

Me that she’ll sleep over in his house

I advised him to be very careful about

Her and he told me that nothing will

happen, infact that

Yvonne will be his future wife.

“bitter cola doesn’t sweet the way it

Sounds in the ear”I said to him.

We discussed a little and hanged up.

The next day, I woke up very early in the morning

and did some morning chores before I went to a

nearby building site to know if I can see

anything to do there,

even if it is to serve a bricklayer but

I couldn’t because

there are some people who came

before me. I went away,

as I was going on the road,

I fell into a big thought that made me

forgot myself

till one man tapped me from the back.

“com Mr man, u no go comot for road

abi u wan die’ he said.

I regain myself and fall beside the

road. The woman that was inside the car

horning for me to clear

from the road parked aside and came

down nd came to where i fell down and

helped me to stand.

some people were also around me,

some of them were scolding me for

blocking the road.

chai! nwoke n’ife!!!

The woman told them to leave me that

I didn’t block the road intentionally.

She took me to her car and asked me

my name and I told her.

she a asked me what the problem was,

that made me forgot myself on the road.

I decided not to

let her know my predicaments but she

persuaded me to let the cat out of the

bag, so I lied and told her I lost a contract.

She pited me with the way her face


She gave me #20000 and told me not

To worry at all ,

that I should take the things of the

world easy to avoid premature dead.

She gave me her card and told me to

Call her anytime I like.

I thanked her for the money and came

Down from her car,

so she drove off.

I got home that day feeling


At least, this money she gave me can serve me

well. Nwanne,

Owu nwee gi, iwota na 5naira bu

Nnukwu ego!!

Twoweeks later,

on Sunday, i decided to call that

woman and know how she is fairing.

I called her thrice but she didn t pick

I deleted her number from my phone


In the evening of that same day,

one number called me and I picked up
