RISEN DEVILS, FALLEN ANGEL ... SEASON
That's a good batter trade bro, well accepted. Joojo responded in smiles.
Soon, it was the following month and the two good friends, Joojo and Theo, met at the graduation. They caught up with old times and were very happy.
Joo tell me, when exactly are you starting with the marriage plans? Theo inquired.
I'm so worried Theo, can you believe Selorm is silent about it? Claiming he's busy. Joojo unhappily talked.
Why don't you be a man and face him? Let him know you want to make the presence of the woman in your life official. Theo advised.
I will do just that bro, also make up your mind of starting work with us soon. Joojo responded.
They talked for a while and finally parted ways after the program.
Joojo happily drove home with his certificate.
Angela called to congratulate him.
Joo, I wish I could be part of the celebration in your home, but....
I understand where you are coming from Angel. I promise you, things will soon be resolved. Joojo smartly cut in.
Two days after, Selorm returned from his Nigeria trip.
He was so happy when Joojo finally showed his certificate to him.
I knew you will never disappoint me Joojo. Making a first class isn't for lazy people. You've done well. Selorm complimented.
Anyway, I will make preparations right away for you to travel outside to do your masters degree. Selorm added.
No Selorm, I must get married first. Joojo objected.
Sure Joo. Now tell me, who is this lady? Where is she from and what does she do? I want to know everything about her and get the plans ready for the marriage. Selorm responded.
Whoops! This is good. Selorm is finally inquiring about Angela. Joojo thought happily.
Well bro, her name is Angela Osei, from the Ashanti region of Ghana. She is a level 100 student of the university of Ghana and will be in level 200 next semester.
She is 26 years of age and from a very humble family.
She is the third of her three siblings.
She is a definition of beauty and humility.
Bro I think that's all. Joojo happily described.
Wow! Sounds good to the ears. Anyway, will like to meet her soon. Also, I will call our only uncle and aunty to come from our hometown to do the necessary background checks. Selorm responded.
Bro, please there is one more thing. Joojo fearfully spoke.
And that is? Selorm asked.
Bro please promise you won't frown at that. Joojo pleaded.
I don't do promises Joojo, I only deliver, if I can. He replied.
Bro, Angela is having a three year old child. Joojo confessed.
What! Joojo, are you mad? How dare you speak this garbage to me? Where is the father of the baby, that, you are rather going to father her? Selorm screamed.
Selorm please calm down. The father of the baby didn't accept responsibility of the pregnancy. Joojo explained.
Exactly Joojo! That should tell you the type of woman she is!
No man rejects a pregnancy he is so sure of, except when there are doubts. This means that, your so called fiancee was sexing about so she didn't have any sane person to accept the pregnancy! Selorm continuously screamed.
No Selorm! You can't judge her based on that! That is her past! Joojo for once raised his voice against Selorm.
Past you say? Joojo, get the intellectual definition of past once and for all.
A past is a place we no more live there! A place we only have memories of and not visuals! A place we only touch, when we want to make reference! A place we always regret living or not living there. Selorm explained.
Now you see? Your so called fiancee isn't in the past but present! She has something visual (the child) to always remind her of where she used to live. Something visual to remind her of the sex she made that night with the child's father! Selorm angrily continued.
Joojo, you are in for trouble! You are in to continue from where someone stopped, and that is dangerous! What if the father comes back? What if the father wants to visit his daughter every other day? Can you stand the nonsense heat of watching your supposed step daughter and her dad always loved up? Selorm questioned.
Joojo, listen to me carefully, my words are final! And that is, you ain't going to get married to a baby mama! Selorm screamed.
It's a lie Selorm! You won't dictate to me this time! Joojo screamed.
To be continued...
