Few months later, Feranmi was about leaving the site when he got a call from his mother.
“Hello ….
Hello …. good evening ma
“How are you doing?”
“I’m fine ma”
“And your wife?”
“She’s fine ma”
“How’s work too?”
“Work is fine, thank you ma”
“Feranmi it’s almost five months that you got married now and you people are not yet pregnant, your wife was here last week and I did not see any sign of pregnancy, hope all is well”
“All is well ma, it was intentional, we want to wait for a while before making babies”
“Who’s decision was that?”
“Ehm …. It was actually mine ma”
“Ha, what you’re doing to your wife is unfair o, every woman’s prayer is to have her own child nine months after her wedding”
“Mummy it’s just for a while, our marriage is still young, some people even stay for a year before starting a family”
“Children of nowadays ….. You know what, tell your wife I’m coming tomorrow, hope you don’t have any functions to attend tomorrow”
“I don’t think so”
“See you tomorrow, good night”
“Good night ma”
They were about to sleep when Feranmi remembered his Mother’s message.
“Baby my mum called, she’s coming tomorrow, hope you are not going out”
“I need to fix my hair tomorrow, that means I will go to the salon early so I can come back on time” she replied
On Saturday morning, Wemmy prepared breakfast, she made extra provision for her mother in-law in case she comes in before her.
She came back from the salon and met her mother in-law.
“Good afternoon ma” she knelt down to greet her.
“Omo mi (my child) good afternoon, welcome”
“Thank you ma, how’s everyone at home?”
“We are all fine”
“I’m sorry you did not meet me at home, I needed to fix my hair, in fact I left early because of you”
“No problem my daughter, the hair style looks good on you”
“Thank you ma, have you eaten? I prepared your food before I left”
“Wemmy I want grand children, that’s why I’m here”
“Mummy please give us little time ma, it’s our decision and we want to stick to it for now”
“Who is lying here, your husband said it was his decision, while you said you both decided. I thought you are not part of it that’s why I’m here, so we can talk him out of it” she explained.
Wemmy and her husband exchanged glances.
“Ehm ehm …. Mummy what I mean is that, it was his idea and I’m in support of it too”
“Ehn ehn! The two of you want to put me in the middle abi, that is why it’s not good to interfere in husband and wife’s affairs.”
“No o Mummy, we did not put you in the middle o” she said playfully.
“I was worried for you before, but since you are in it together, no problem”
“Mummy thanks for your concern ma, my wife and I are grateful, don’t worry your grand kids are coming soon”
Feranmi said with his hands on his mum shoulder.
Wemmy entertained her and they shared some gist. She left two hours later.
“Sweetheart, why did you tell Mummy that it was your decision?”
“Oh! I should have told her that it was yours right?”
“You should have said it was our decision, that was what I told my mummy too”
“She said she was sure you can’t be a part of it, that every woman wish to carry her child nine months after her wedding, so I said it was my idea”
“Feranmi! Thank you”
“For protecting my family? You don’t have to thank me” She hugged him.
“It’s OK, I need to see a match, will you join me”
“No, I have clothes to sow. I must deliver them on Monday”
“Ok, please pick the clothes we’ll be wearing to church tomorrow, I will iron them when I’m through with the match”
“Native or English? she asked
“Hmm, tomorrow is first Sunday of the month, let’s go for native”
