Our Little Secret 3


So here I am sitting and wallowing in my own thoughts, with stacks of wedding magazines all around me. I mean, I know Chukie loves me but it’s been 6 years since we’ve been dating and he still hasn’t popped the question. All these years I was never bothered about it because I felt there was no need to rush but right now there’s a BIG reason to rush.

It was yesterday when Fiyin and I went to get the DNA result at the hospital, I thought I should use the opportunity to do some tests as I wasn’t feeling well, they ran a series of tests and it turns out I’m 6 weeks pregnant. I’m still a little confused on what to do and how to tell Chukie about it and the little statement Fiyin made about passing the night at Chukie‘s keeps ringing in my head. I mean what if Chukie is Mide‘s biological father.

And why dint anybody tell me about this earlier, neither Chukie nor Fiyin had mention that little detail for 4years, maybe they thought there’s nothing to it, I mean its really not a big deal, I trust my man, he wouldn’t….. and definitely not with Fiyin. Hmm, Fiyin!!! I really don’t seem to know her anymore. She has basically transformed from the sweet 17year old I met on my first day in school into this Slutty, desperate lady. I wonder what has….

(Phone rings…)

Me: Hellur! (In Medea‘s Voice)
Chukie (Over the phone): Hey Rabbit, wassup
Me: I dey o, feeling better now
Chukie: Ok, good to hear that. So do you think we can do dinner?
Me: Dinner, like a date?
Chukie: No, a month. Answer me jor.
Me: Hian! Let me check my schedule, I should be able to squeeze out some time for you
Chukie: Na you sabi, I’ll pick you at 7
Me: ok bye

Yippee!!! I ran into my room to look for what to wear. And I forgot about my worries…

At the restaurant, we had just finished eating and the waiter brought a bottle of wine. Chukie opened the wine bottle and poured into both glasses, he gave me mine and I gently put it down.

Chukie: (Nudging me) Yo! Why aren’t you drinking?
Me: I need to tell you something first
Chukie: o_O You look serious, is everything okay?
Me: I dunno mahn! Chukie we’ve been dating for about 6 years and I think by now
Chukie: (cuts in) Errr babe, I really think you should take that drink now
Me: Chukie, let me finish
Chukie: No, I don’t like how this conversation is going

(He dropped his wine glass, picked up mine and gulped it down and then opened his mouth to remove a 20-Carat Diamond ring and went down on his knees)

:O

Chukie: Will you marry me?
Me: I’m pregnant
Chukie: What?
Me: Yes
(Stands up)

Chukie: Wait, what?
Me: I’m pregnant Chukie, 6weeks, I found out yesterday
Chukie: OMG  (He lifted me up to hug me) So is that a yes?….

………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

Its 1.00 am and I still couldn’t sleep. I turned over to see Chukie, fast asleep. Here he is, the love of my life and as of 3hours ago, my fiancé (Yes, I said Yes). I’ve loved him unconditionally for 6years without ever doubting his love for me and I’ll do anything to keep that going. As much as logic suggests he is Mide‘s father, I don’t have all the facts and accusing him will be a really dumb thing to do not to mention that it could ruin everything we’ve built. The only reasonable thing is just to talk to Fiyin again.

At brunch:

Me: Fiyin, I think you know why I called you here today.
Fiyin: *sighs* Yes, I do and after thinking carefully about it, I think….. Oh My God :O Finally? (she took my hand to check my ring)
Me:Yes o, finally and guess what?
Fiyin: What?
Me: I’m pregnant
Fiyin: I’m so happy for you sweety (she hugged me)
Me: Yeah, thanks, so you were saying…
Fiyin: Okay, after thinking carefully about it and with what I just heard now I think the best thing is just to come clean to Olumide, Shina has been calling me asking about the result of the DNA test and I’ve been feeding him lies. And seriously I don’t think it’s fair to either Olumide or Mide and even you, I mean, if I was in your shoes, I would want to know the truth before getting married and we’ve come far too long for this to come between us. So I’m just gonna tell Olumide everything, and if possible, get a paternity test. No matter the outcome, I’ll bear the consequences.
Me: Awww…..that’s a brave thing dear and I’ll be with you every step of the way, okay? (We hugged)

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

Olumide: So , let me get this straight, Mide, Ademide is your daughter, and you thought my cousin Shina Rambo was the father until yesterday and now you think it might be Chukie?
Fiyin: Yes *nods slowly*
Olumide: *scoffs* WT..? Ok Olumide calm down (Talking to himself) When did all this happen again?
Fiyin: About 4 years ago….
Olumide: Ookay…continue
Fiyin: It was on Susan’s birthday, July 27th. I was pretty drunk and I ended up at Chukie’s place. And why do I have to continue, this isn’t the reaction I was expecting.
Olumide: Hold on a second. Do you remember meeting someone at Chukie’s house that night?
Fiyin:  Not really….no
Olumide: OMG! You are the girl
Fiyin: What girl, what are you talking about?
Olumide: I remember July 27th because it was the anniversary of my mum’s death, I wasn’t feeling too good so Chukie asked me to come over to his house and we would go clubbing but on getting there that night, I met Tiwa so we couldn’t go. I decided to play games all through the night, it was around 5 that Tiwa left for the library and just minutes later a girl came in drunk, she said she wanted to collect the house keys but Tiwa was gone. Chukie asked her to sleep over because of the way she was staggering around. I noticed she was pretty high on something and was throwing herself all over Chukie that night
Fiyin: Oh my GOD!!!
Olumide: Chukie begged me to take care of her because he was mad at her behavior and I think we both got carried away.
Fiyin: Oh my GOD!!!
Olumide: The following morning, she was gone before I woke up and I never said anything to Chukie….
Fiyin: ….And we met again, 2 years later at Chukie’s Sister’s wedding without recognizing each other. OH MY GOD!!!
Olumide: (raises his voice) So you have a kid??? and the kid is my…

Okbye…..

Our Little Secret 2


…..Fiyin wobbled on her feet and quickly grabbed onto me for support. I could see the fear in her eyes as she was trying to tell me what has happened but I couldn’t hear her due to the background noise. All I could make out was Shina Rambo, so I whispered in Olumide’s ears that she is tired and they should probably call it a night. He nodded and they paved their way through the crowd to leave. They went back to their hotel room alone….

Back in my own room I was so scared for her and a thousand thoughts ran through my head still trying to figure out what might have happened and why she was screaming Shina Rambo. I couldn’t even call her as her phone had been with me since the previous day.

The following morning, Olumide called me to bring Fiyin’s phone to the airport as they were heading to Ghana for their honeymoon. I met with them at the airport but they were not alone, they were with another couple who Olumide later introduced to me as his cousin Adeshina (Shina Rambo), and his wife Toni. It was then I figured out what Fiyin was trying to tell me. I moved over to where she was standing looking grumpy and sad and she told me Shina Rambo and his wife are coming to Ghana with them as the honeymoon trip is his (Shina Rambo’s) wedding gift to them. I hugged her and told her not to be bothered and she should try and enjoy her honeymoon regardless.

Two weeks later, they all returned from Ghana and in Fiyin’s words, this was what happened:

“The first few days were perfect, Olumide and I spent most of our time alone in the room and sometimes poolside then one afternoon Toni (Shina Rambo’s wife) came over to talk to me that she’s bored and both of us should go shopping so I followed her. While we were at the mall, we saw a baby store and she got emotional. She told me she’s been married to Shina Rambo for 4years and she has never been pregnant….it was just too emotional and we had to leave. I felt terrible to say the least knowing in my mind that he’s the father of my child.

In the evening, Toni came back to ask if Olumide would follow her to the spa, she had booked a couple’s spa and Shina said he wasn’t interested. I forced Olumide to go with her so she wouldn’t feel bad. I was glad to have an evening to myself. I took a shower, got into a pair of shorts and tank top and got into bed waiting for Olumide to come back. I jumped up when I heard a knock thinking it was Olumide only to see Shina at the door.

0_O

I asked what he wanted and he said he only came to talk so I invited him in. He started by asking if I told Olumide anything, I answered no and asked if he told Toni and he said no too. Then there was this awkward silence and…..

(cuts in… “OH MY GOD! Please tell me its not what I think it is, Fiyin please tell me you did not sleep with your husband’s cousin while on your honeymoon”)

I dunno Tiwa, I couldn’t help it. He was looking even cuter and damn that stupid cologne he was wearing.

Me: *Sighs* Fiyin, are you in love with him? I mean do you want to be with him instead, does he know about little Mide?Are you even going to talk to your husband about this? Do you think you got into this marriage too soon?

Fiyin: I really don’t have those answers yet my dear

Me: You better think about it, FAST

Fiyin continued seeing Shina secretly despite my warnings

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

Fiyin ran into my house all excited this fateful afternoon, I was scared I almost dropped the plate of fruits I was holding.

Fiyin: Tiwa, Tiwa ….guess what? I’ve told Shina about Mide, You won’t believe what he said

Me: (with apple in mouth) What did he say?

Fiyin: Ah! He was very happy, he was just jumping all around. He said the issue of not having kids was starting to get to him and he’s starting to think he’s the one with the problem. He was a little mad at me for not telling him from the start  but we sorted that out too. And guess what else he said?

Me: What?

Fiyin: He said he loves me

Me: Oh!

Fiyin: What? You don’t believe him?

Me: Not that but wait, Is he gonna leave his wife, and what about Olumide, your husband, remember him?

Fiyin: Ermm…I dunno but I really like him and him saying he loves me just melted my heart. I haven’t really thought of what will happen next but if he asks me to marry him, I think I will. I’ll have a complete family you know.

Me: No, Fiyin answer my question, did he promise you marriage?

Fiyin: Not really, he insisted that him and Fiyin would get a DNA test and if its a match, he’ll show that to his wife, from there we’ll know the next step.

Me: Are you sure you want him to do that? Remember you were not even sure if he was just him you slept with

Fiyin: He was the only one, he said I only spent about an hour in his house that I left claiming I needed to come and meet you in Chukie’s house

Me: Wait, you went to Chukie’s house that day, when?

Fiyin: Yeah, In the morning to collect the key but you’ve already left there so I came home

Me: Oh ok (scoffs and stands up)

Fiyin:  So what do you think?

Me:  What do I think? Honestly,I think you’re a fool but well, its your life, do whatever you want.

Fiyin: Whatever, will you follow me to the hospital

Me: I’ve heard

Fiyin: Yay!!! I’m so excited

Few days later, Fiyin and I went to get the result of the DNA test and it wasn’t a match….Shina isn’t the biological father

#QuestionOfTheDay: Who is Mide’s father????

Our Little Secret


Its the D-day, she woke up with a wide smile on her face and she looked at me saying “This is really happening”. I stood up from where I was sitting to hold her, “Yes dear, its happening…finally” i replied. I hugged her as tears rolled down her cheeks, I couldn’t hold it in and I started crying too. Its been two years since Olumide and Fiyin started dating,  its their wedding day and the husband-to-be still has no idea that his bride’ s apparent “sister” is actually her daughter.

It all started four years ago….

It was a Saturday afternoon that day, Fiyin and I  just got back from reading at the state library. Our friend Susan was having her birthday party so we decided to go read in the morning then party later in the evening. Susan kept calling us that we were running late and the party had already started. We left home in a rush only to find out about halfway to the party that Fiyin didn’t take her house keys. We thought it didn’t matter since both of us would still come back home together so we went to the party.

At the party, we had fun, drank and danced like there was no tomorrow. At about 11:30, my boyfriend Chukie came around to pick us but Fiyin wasn’t ready to leave. She had met some “cute guys” and they were having fun so I left her and followed Chukie to his house. I was just settling in at Chukie‘s house when I saw the house keys, I called Fiyin to ask what she was going to do and she said I shouldn’t worry she’d sort herself out so I forgot about it and went to bed.

Fiyin came home the following day excited and told me what happened after I left the party. Apparently, the cute guys she was talking to invited her to go clubbing with them, after clubbing they went home together and he even gave her a cheque of #50,ooo when she was leaving. “Oh cool”  I replied her. Little did I know there was more to the story…

The next time I saw Fiyin was when I was in school to get my NYSC posting letter. I was so happy to see her after the three months break but I noticed she wasn’t too excited, we decided to go eat at the cafeteria.

The waitress came to take our order:

Waitress: What would you like to eat?

Me: A plate of rice and beans, fried fish and dodo 

Fiyin: Jollof rice, fish, two meat, ponmo, salad and moin -moin

:O

Me: FIYIN!!!

Fiyin: What nau?

Me: Is this how you’ve been eating, no wonder you’re fat :p

(She ignored my comment..)

Waitress: Drink?

Me: Fanta for both of us

(The waitress walked away…)

Me: Fiyin, what’s wrong? You don’t look happy

Fiyin: My dear, I’m in deep shit o

Me: Tell me what’s wrong?

Fiyin: I’m pregnant

Me: WHAT??? :O For who?

Fiyin: Remember Susan’s last birthday party when we were in school?

Me: Yeah sure

Fiyin: I told you I went clubbing with those guys right, after clubbing I followed them home,  I was pretty drunk that night and one thing  led to the other I slept with one or more of them. I really cant remember

Me: WHAT??? FIYIN!!! What the hell have you done? Why dint you say something??

Fiyin: The truth is I was ashamed, especially knowing the fact that you told me to leave the party that night. I probably would have gone home but I dint have my keys too so I just thought one night of fun wouldn’t hurt, I dint know this was going to happen

(She bursted into tears and stopped as the waitress approached)

The waitress served us and left…

Me: Do you even know which of them is responsible?

Fiyin: I really have no idea, even the cheque I was given that day bounced and the name I saw on it was Shina Rambo …

(cuts in….)

Me: Shina Rambo ke? Naah that can’t be right

Fiyin: I don’t think I can even recognize any of them, I dint take a number cuz I dint plan on seeing them again, I don’t know what to do 😦

(I moved close to hold her hand)

Me: Did you at least call Susan to ask her about them?

Fiyin: I did,  but I couldn’t tell her what was wrong and when I mentioned Shina Rambo she laughed and hung up.

Me: Yeah, that’s pretty funny………But you’re keeping the baby right?

Fiyin: I have to, My parents already know about it, my mum isn’t even talking to me at the moment.

Me: I’m sure they’ll come around…pele dear

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

Little Mide ran into the room excited about something, I carried her and she showed me the pack of Malteasers she was holding, “Uncle Chukie gave me” she said in her cute little voice. I looked up to see my 6 ft 1 “prince” walk in…

😉

He smiled and I welcomed him with a hug. He came to pick the rings and also deliver a message from the groom, he left a few minutes later and Fiyin and I went back to our discussion. She told me she has agreements with her parents never to mention who Mide‘s parents are to anyone and since she was their only child, they really don’t mind taking care of Mide. We all got dressed and headed to the church.

Few hours later, the deed was done,  Fiyin and Olumide were officially married. We were all happy and our little secret was safe, Until later in the evening, at the wedding after-party.

Fiyin was literally dancing her ass off as the Deejay played “Olo mi” by Tosin Martins when this tall cute guy came out from nowhere and started spraying her #1000 notes, she looked up to smile at him and even danced more. The guy whispered in her ears, you don’t remember me, do you? She shook her head, he replied with a smile ” Shina Rambo, I’m Olumide’s cousin”.
