They gave their consent quite alright but not total commitment into the relationship but I guess it was because of what I did earlier which I believe will fade away over time.
Me: so, what did you discussed with my mum on phone?
Biola: why do you want to know?
Me: Am your husband of course and I need to know everything
Biola: Husband ko, Husband ni? U don pay for my dowry? Wait till after 5weeks before saying that
Me: So, you wont tell me abi?
Biola: I wont oo…its mother and daughters talk or did I ask you what you discussed with them too?
We turn it to joke and played with it, I tried to find out what she discussed with my mum but she didn’t tell me despite pleading with her at a stage. We shifted discussion to plan for the wedding, how the day was going to look like, the financial implication, the guest and all the necessary things needed for that day. We started making list of what we will require for the day and ended the night with a romantic and lovely sex, it was even Biola that initiated the sex to mark the good news of what happened earlier in the day and we renewed our vow all over again.
Wedding preparation was in top gear; virtually everybody in my office was aware of my engagement even though our plan was a low key engagement because of what happened earlier. We were both happy that finally our dream was coming through. Biola was virtually the happiest person on earth during this period as have never seen her so happy like that before.
We already delivered all the content of the list they gave us from Biola’s house, even though most of the things they requested for was on a high side, we were able to beat it down. The most surprising thing out of it all was when Biola’s dad said he was not going to collect the bride price from me as he was not selling his daughter to me.
The wedding day was already here; all preparation was from my parent house. We left as early as 8am as the program was suppose to start by 10am. We got there by past 9am and it was even a surprise that Biola’s dad was not fully dressed. My parent and I went through the back door to greet Biola’s parent and most especially her grandma who made the day possible for us…..
Biola’s Mum: Oko Iyawo
Me: Yes mummy
Biola’s Mum: Congratulations…your mind is at rest now abi, your wife is finally coming home to you
Me: All thanks to you Ma…May God continue to bless you for us Ma
Biola’s Mum: Amen Dear…your wife is inside oo, they are still dressing up, will you go in to see her
Me: No need Ma, she will still come out ma
Biola’s Mum: Abi ooo..have you seen Daddy?
Me: Yes Ma..i saw him on our way coming in now
Biola’s Mum: okay
It was a great engagement as we seriously enjoyed ourselves unlike what happened between me and Mary, my dad and Biola’s dad later loose up and I was surprise that Biola’s dad knows how to dance that much.
What we thought was going to be a small engagement later turn out to be a large one as people were much, even those that I never expected will make it that day was present and graced our wedding. It was truly an atmosphere of Joy.
We left with our wife around 6pm to my parent house, we got home around seven pm, some guest that couldn’t make it to my in-law’s house came to greet us at home, I was seriously tired and had to pull off my agbada and shoe that moment as I was on slippers. It was around past 8 when I was told some 3 guys were asking of me outside. I went out to meet them and I was surprised that neither not that I don’t know any of them but their mode of dressing doesn’t show they came to greet us for the wedding….
Me: Good evening oo
Man: Good evening…..Are you Mr snakie?
Me: Yes..how may I help you?
Man: We are from the state CID (flashed his ID Card), your presence is needed in our office
Me: For what? What did I do?
Man: Once you get to our office you will know…….
Me: But at least you should tell me my offence (Raising my voice to call attention)
My Dad: What happened?
Me: They said they are police and am wanted in their office but they wouldn’t tell me my offence
My Dad: Sorry Officers, what exactly is going on..as you can see, today is his wedding and its not suppose to be spoilt this way, you should be able to tell us his offence and why he is needed in your office
Second man: Thank You sir, he will know his offence once he get to the office, we are only respecting him because we see him as a gentle man, we expect him to keep quiet because whatever he say now will be use against him in the court of law
My Dad: This is serious…which station are you from?
“crowd already gathered at us, I looked into Biola’s face and she was looking confused”
Man: From the state CID sir..you can meet us there sir
Before I knew what was happening, they already brought hand cuff and put it on my hand, I was still dragging with them as they put me behind the Honda halla they parked outside, there was a driver in the car already waiting for them, they didn’t even wait for other people to meet us outside before they zoomed off……………….
