.I knocked on the door and I heard her
voice
saying “who’s that”.?.”its me snakie, “
I
responded..she opened her door, she
was on
her nighties with her laptop on the
table with
screen saver, apparently she has not
been on
the system for a while…….(BJ was
looking
astonishing)
“yes..yes..have done it, have done it
ma….i
have the solution ma, come and see
ma” I
placed the laptop on her bed and she
sat
beside me, I started explaining about
the steps
and everytyn to her..all what we did
and
everytyn, how we arrived at the
solution,
showing her that what I did was
exactly what
the client wanted….I was talking for
about
30mins not realizing I was only
talking to
myself..i looked sideways at BJ, her
eyes was
filled with water….”what happened
ma” I
inquired……tears started coming out of
her
eyes and she busted into tears…I was
confused
Me:what’s it ma, pls take it easy
ma..what
wrong ma, everytyn will be alright
ma..pls and
pls ma….stop crying ma….You are too
strong
for this Ma…You are a strong lady…
pls and

“no response from her as she
continue
crying”………….pls talk to me Ma, a
problem
shared is half solved, I might be
younger than
you but you can talk to me Ma….pls

BJ:when will evrytyn be fine….pls tell
me,

like
this..am tired of all this..when will it

alright..
Me:Plscalm down and talk to me Ma…
pls (I
held her hand)
BJ:am tired of everytyn, am tired of
doing
everytyn alone, am tired of taking
care of my
baby alone, my daughter needs her
dad, I need
my husband, I need a family, not the
one I will
see my husband once in two weeks, I
don’t
want that any more, he keeps
promising me
all the time and disappointing me evry
here
and there..he doesn’t care about
what I feel,
he doesn’t care about his daughter,
all what
he cares about is work, work, work
work..how
long will I continue living like this?
Me ls take it easy ma…..have you
talk this
through with him before
BJ:how many times, its all promise on
promise
Me:But you know that was the nature
of the
job initially
BJ:Yes, our arrangement was that he
will stay
here in Nigeria after our marriage but
he
didn’t stick to plan, my father had an
arrangement for him to be the MD of
the
company and stays here but he
declined
Me:Why?
BJ:he said he wanted to build his own
empire
on it own and doesn’t need to wait
for our
wealth and he gets more money
working
outside Nigeria…The money and the
enjoyment
of moving from one country to the
other is the
utmost for him
Me:How often does he come home?
BJ:A weekend in two months or
sometimes
two weekends or sometimes I wont
even see
him at all…like now, its been 4months
he
visited
Me:hmmmmm……….(this is serious),
that
means u only see him on average of
52 days
in a year out of 365days
BJ:you can imagine…..he has been
promising
me for the past four month to come
home, the
excuse he kept giving me was that I
should
give him sometimes, he didn’t even
give me
definite time he will be coming..have
been
talking to him on phone for the past
one hour
and its been the same story…….will I
continue
like this, am tired of living like this…
Nifemi is
going to seven years, she needed a
junior one,
her father is not around to take care
of me
and her…what will I do (burst into
tears again)
Me:Pls stop crying ma,
I held her close to my chest while I
close the
laptop, I started pacifying her and
enjoined
her to wait for when her husband will
be
around, sit him down and talk to him
face to
face, tell him all you wanted, let him
know
he’s hurting you and his daughter, let
him
realized the vacuum he’s creating in
his
family, let him know that his family
should be
his priority rather than money…I said
so many
things to her but she continue
crying…….i help
her clean her face, laid her on the
bed and
sleep beside her on the bed.
