During the course of Wemmy’s leave, the couple’s spent most of their time at home, except for one or two occasions that they went to the cinemas. At a time like this it was their friendship that kept them together. They play games, especially scrabble, they both love the game, watch TV together including football matches. Even without sex they still bonded well.
“Wemmy was in the bedroom with her husband making preparations for the next day. Her leave was over.
“Feranmi, you know I’m resuming tomorrow and I don’t want you to stay in the house alone, do you have anywhere you can go, in order to while away time?
“I don’t want you to start thinking when you are alone, the last thing I need now is a husband with high blood pressure”
“Thanks for your concern baby, It’s like you know what’s on my mind. I have an old friend who runs a small construction company, he just started it, I got to know this while chatting with him online, maybe I can go to his sites and pass “time”. Let me get his number from Facebook, then I’ll call him”
Feranmi called his old friend, Segun Adebayo and explained everything to him, they talked for some time and he ended the call.
“How far, what did he say” she asked
“He said I can come, he even wished he had a vacant spot, but I told him all I want for now is to leave the house in the morning and come back in the evening. From there I can still go for my job hunt and attend interviews when I’m called upon for one”
“Good, I’m happy to hear that, I know you won’t go there for long before you get a job by God’s grace”
“Amen, you can take the car to work, I can always catch a bus to the site”
“In no circumstance will I allow you roam the street of Lagos on foot when you have a car”
“Hmm wifey, you like this your hubby too much. Ok let’s do it this way, I’ll drive you to work in the morning and pick you when you close. Deal?”
“Deal, that’s better. Thanks darling, I love you hubby”
“I love you more wifey” he said and kissed her.
The next morning, they woke up very early, had their family devotion and started preparing for the day.
Feranmi dropped his wife off at her work place and headed to the site.
Segun Adebayo introduced Feranmi to the workers on site including the site engineer and supervisor, he told them he’ll be assisting the site supervisor for now.
He left the site at 4pm to pick his wife. They got home around 7:30pm, trust Lagos traffic.
“So tell me about your first day in office as Mrs Feranmi Adesanya” he said while helping her out in the kitchen
“It was great, everybody was just shouting iyawo here and there, they said I’ve added weight, one of my female colleague even said that is a sign of having good sex”
“For there mind” he said
Speaking of sex, you know there is a verse in the bible that says the wife does not have power over her body, but the husband”
“Hope you read the part that says except with the consent for a time” Wemmy countered
“Yea, and the latter part says “….that Satan tempt you not for your incontinency”
“Feranmi, can we now talk about this now, thanks”
“Oookay, I get it” he said raising his hands in surrender.
After dinner, Wemmy went into the guest room to start cutting the clothes she wants to sow for some customers.
Four weeks later, Feranmi approached the site supervisor and told him he’s tired of just sitting around doing nothing. He told him he needs to start doing something on site. He already opened up to him and told him how he lost his job. The supervisor declined at first saying he can’t handle a labour’s work, that it’s tedious but he agreed after much plea.
He joined the labourers, he realized how tedious the work was, but he already made up his mind, he needed the money, a man shouldn’t depend solely on his wife.
At the end of the week, he was given #10,000, he’s friend also gave him #5,000, he said he should use it to fuel his car. Feranmi was so happy.
He left the site and drove straight to the market he bought meat, pepper, vegetables and beverages. He’s so happy he’s providing for his family for the first time since he got married.
He left the market and went straight to his wife’s office to pick her up. They got home, he opened the car trunk and brought out the stuff he got from the market.
Wemmy was surprised when she saw them.
“Sweetheart, where did you get all these from?” she said pointing at the food stuff.
“From the market of course” he said smiling.
“Don’t tell me you are working on site”
“Can we go into the house please, then I’ll explain”
She gave him a stern look, opened the door to their flat and went inside leaving him to sort out himself.
Feranmi went to the kitchen to drop the food stuff, he joined his wife in the sitting room.
“Yes, I now work on site, see baby I can’t just sit around doing nothing on site, so I joined the labourers, that’s the only job available on site” he explained
“You did what? Feranmi, am I complaining? No wonder you lost weight. You don’t have to do that, my salary can still sustain us” she said, now crying.
“Baby, pls don’t cry, I’m a man, you can’t expect me to fold my hands when I can still help in a little way, Or do you prefer me going to my parents for money? God forbid. Baby you need to see how happy I am today when the money was handed to me”
He moved closer to her and wiped her tears, “please don’t be upset, don’t let us ruin our weekend”
“I can see you are very happy sweetheart, I know you’ve always wanted to provide for us, but please promise me you’ll quit if the job is getting too stressful”
“I promise” he later explained to her that he was paid #10,000 and his friend gave him #5,000 to fuel is car.
A month later, Wemmy got a call from the site that he’s husband has been rushed to the hospital. She hurriedly took permission at the office and rush to the hospital in tears.
“Feranmi I told to quit this job but you won’t listen, do you want to kill me, you are not use to this kind of life, why are you doing this to yourself”
“Easy my love, I’m fine now, it’s normal, I will get use to it”
“You are not going back to that site o”
“I’m going back, those who work there are men like me, don’t worry nothing will happen to your husband”
“If this happen again, then I’ll make sure you won’t step your foot in that place again”
“Yes ma, as your lordship pleases”
“Anyways the doctor said you’ve been placed on observation till tomorrow”
“God I hate hospital”
“Oh! you should have taught of that before overworking yourself”
“Baby I said I’m sorry, it won’t happen again”
“Let me rush home to get some things, I’ll be back” she said
“Don’t worry you can stay back at home” he said
“Stay back at home while my husband is lying on the hospital bed, and you think I’ll be able to sleep?
“Really, so you can’t do without me for one night” he said teasingly.
“Whatever, I’ll be right back”
They spend the night together at the hospital, Feranmi was discharged the following day.
