Mrs Badmus walked down the staircase, her husband who had summoned her was sitting beside Olori ebi, a fair strange woman was sitted with a little boy in another seat. She greeted the guest and went to sit beside her husband. (That was her favourite position) a family portrait hung directly opposite her caught her gaze. It was during Kayode's sendoff party after the completion of her secondary school leaving examination.
"... My wife, I've been talking to you since." Olori ebi said as Akin tapped his wife.
"Sorry... Sorry Olori ebi." She composed herself.
"Iyawo mi, I understand you. I caught you staring at your late daughter's picture. It is not easy, she was your only child." He said while Mrs. Badmus fought back tears whelmed at the corners of her eyes.
"You see, there is reason for everything. See my wife, even though Kayode is dead, God have given us another Kayode. You see, this your useless and good for nothing husband, he had never done anything right."
"What has he done again?" Mrs. Badmus asked looking at the young woman sitted across the room,she knew where everything was heading to.
"I was in my house yesterday when he came with this lady." He pointed at the young lady, mrs. Badmus eyes travelled alongside his hand till they fell on the young chap, he was the replica of her randy husband Akin.
"Baba, don't bother yourself, I know he brought a newwife already. After all, I am now a barren. Young lady." She stood up. "Enjoy your stay here o." She said and left. She reminisced on how Kayode would advice her to keep standing her fathers behavior all because of her but not she had gone, she had no reasons of staying in such marriage..
