Juwai! Are you nuts? How could you do a thing like that? Don't you have the slightest respect for your elders? When are you going to change this irritating attitude of yours?" Hajiya Azumi bellowed Angrily.
"O geeezzzz! Here she comes again with her preaching, please and please Azumi don't lecture me. Please, right now am not in the mood to listen. Just taste what she called pepper soup. How dare she give me a food without much pepper in it? She knows my taste why then will she do the contrary?”
"Kinci uwaki Juwairiyyah, nace take this five hands I dash you. I never knew you were this stupid aii, am pitying you Juwai. The day you'll reap what you sow I won't be there to pity you. Uwani, get up, I apologize on her behalf. Please forgive her insolence. Hajiya Azumi said in an earnest appeal.
Uwani stood up, wiping the tears that were goshing out of her eyes saying.
"Its okay hajiya, yarinta ne aii. Ya wuce".
"I don't want to wait long Uwani, if I call you for the second time believe me you'll pay the consequences."
"Shhhh please, miss lecture always, I don't want to hear anything, either she cooks that pepper soup before I loose my patience or pay the consequences. Oh! I forgot to say this, as soon as you are done cooking the pepper soup, come and wash my undies". Said juwairiyyah walking into the toilet.
Uwani turned and left the room sad, while Hajiya Azumi stood there in tears, praying silently for the change in her grand daughter's behavior. A spoiled brat she is.
"Good afternoon sir". Arfaat greeted as soon as Alhaji Abbas entered the sitting room.
"There is nothing good about the afternoon arfaat, when do you want to get married to Juwairiyyah?"
The words came as a shock to Arfaat, he never knew Alhaji Abbas will agree to his idea so soon. Guess there luck is on his side. Juwairiyyah, you are a fish in my pond now baby. Arfaat thought happily.
"Arrrmmm, I can get married to her in the next one month Alhaji, there is a room and parlor in our apartment we can still use. It doesn't have to be a grand wedding, since we all know the reason why."
"Naaah Arfaat, I don't like that idea, yea its okay in the next one month, but am gonna give you a house where you guys will stay for the three months contract to finish". Replied Alhaji Abbas.
"Well, okay then". Said Arfaat.
That's a good idea, in an isolated area, Juwairiyyah is gonna pay dearly!.
"Mama, albishirinki?". Arfaat said happily seating close to his mother.
"Go ahead and tell me dan mama, his mom was in a hell of suspense.”
"Well, I’m going to marry Juwairiyyah, and her dad wants everything to be done in the next one month". Said Arfaat happily.
"Alhamdulillah, I don't know why, but the very first day I saw that child I admired her. But wait son, you are not prepared I guess". Said mai kunu with a look of concern on her face.
"Don't worry mom, I have my savings, and am very sure they'll cover alot of things. Just don't worry."
"But do you love her son?"
No I don't, Arfaat thought___but I'll still marry her just to make her pay, his heart answered to that.
"Of course I do Mama. That's why I don't want to delay everything so her father won't give her out to another man."
"Look how you're blushing" Mai Kunu teased him.
"Oh come on mom." He replied leaving the house completely.
"Juwairiyyah! Juwairiyyah!! Juwairiyyah!!!, how many times did I just call you?". Alhaji Abbas asked.
"Three times papa". Replied Juwairiyyah.
"Well, I've come to a decision which I think will work out perfectly well. I want you to marry ARFAAT!"
Juwairiyyah stood up quickly, hoping that what she just heard was a dream. How can she marry arfaat? Her juwairiyyah! The only daughter of Alhaji Abbas marry Arfaat that poor brat? No that's impossible!
"Juwai, this is the best for us all, no one will marry you the way you are now. Its just a contract marriage, just for three months. By then I'll have find the best way to deal with Arfaat."
"B...bu...but.....Arfaat didn't rape me dad. I don't love him and I can't marry him. Noo dad! I don't want to." She responded admittedly.
"Of course I did raped you juwairiyyah, please, lemme amend for my mistakes". Said arfaat coming out of no where!
".......please lemme amend for my mistake". Arfaat said stepping into the living room. Juwairiyyah gave him a pointed look, what the hell is Arfaat thinking? Is he planning something bad against her? O God! Why did she even start all this drama? Who knows what he has in store for her now. "Juwai, this was a hard decision for us all, but its for the best. I am very sure everything will go as planned, please let's do it". Pleaded her dad."I was against it in the first place angel, but I had to agree to it knowing we don't have a way out of this mess. This brat has already ruined us!". Said her mom. "Am so sorry ma, forgive my stupid behaviour. I promise; I'll amend to my mistakes and will keep my promise by divorcing juwairiyyah exactly three months after our marraige. Have faith in me". Said Arfaat in his psyche, which gave him a percentage of joy knowing his plans. "Noo dad! I don't want to. I prefer living this way than marry
..which one do you prefer?". Asked Arfaat. Juwairiyyah couldn't believe what she just heared. Could Arfaat be serious? Was that the reason he pushed on to the marraige issue? O Allah na, na shiga uku! "Y...ya..yaa Arr...Arf..Arfaat, p...plea...please don't d..do this to me, I will do anything, please" Juwairiyyah pleaded tears gushing out of her eyes."Na...naa naaaa....too bad, you've given up already. Well let me make something clear here Juwai. Am going to take what is mine today, either you agree to it or I force you to. I don't really give a damn, You've tarnished my image in the eyes of your parents; Did you know how much that hurts?" "Yaa Arfaat, forgive me please. Am just a kid, please forgive my insolence. Don't do this to me. Please." "Your pleadings won't stop me from doing what I want to, after all you are legally mine now". Arfaat said smiling."Look here Arfaat, its no
Put me down you fool, stop laying your filthy hands on me" Said Juwairiyyah trying to free herself from Arfaat's grip."O come on babe! Quit the pretence___You love it when I touch you but you keep pretending. Snap out of the game, i've got you already". Arfaat said going into the bathroom with Juwairiyyah in his hands. "So, how do you prefer it? Should I wash you in and out?" Arfaat asked winking. "O geez, will you please let me be? Haba mana. I seriously don't like how you are always trying to get into me. Am not a kid so am going to take care of myself". Snapped Juwairiyyah freeing herself from his grip. "Juwai, am beginning to pity your lips, cause this days they are gonna work alot. Trust me". Arfaat said using the tip of his finger to caress her lips. "Take your hands off me, and please find your way out of here". She said pointing through the doorway. Arfaat only smile
".....I want it again". Arfaat said smiling Wickedly. Juwairiyyah jumped out of bed like a lioness. Arfaat was surprised as how quick she did it."What is it you want Yaa Arfaat?". Juwairiyyah asked fear building up in her. "He bursted into laughter; calling me Yaa won't stop me from doing what I want to, snap out of it and spare me the riddle of calling me Yaa.""Yaa Arfaat, dan Allah kayi haquri (please am sorry) please pity my poor soul. I'll die if you do it again". Said Juwairiyyah tears gushing out of her eyes.Arfaat gave out a lazy smile and said___ "Saifa nayi (I must do it), spare me that pity face."In the next one month, Juwairiyyah had known the difference between what she did and what she was experiencing right now. Cause Arfaat shows no mercy when it comes to Their matrimonial bed, not only that__ she cooks, wash and iron his cloths. What annoyed her the most is that no matter how
"She’s two months pregnant!" "Pardon?". Juwairiyyah asked shocked. "You are two months pregnant Mrs". Repeated the doctor. "Na shiga uku ni Juwairiyyah! Meya kaini fara wannan game din? (I am doomed! Why did I start this game?) Arfaat you've ruined my life. Thus, it was a game she started and it’s now a game over. What can I do to you to make you feel the pain am going through right now?" Juwairiyyah sobbed."Will you keep quite! Kaga mun ja'irar yarinya (look at this foolish girl)" Scolded Hajiya Azumi. Alhaji Abbas sat there dumb, he was surprised___ shocked, and at the same time happy. Happy that he is going to be a grandfather, but on the other side of the coin the thought of Arfaat being the father of the child makes him feel despondent. "Thank you so much doctor, we shall take our leave."* &nbs
".Juwairiyyah in a contrite motion said; “Yaa Arfaat please don’t do this to me, tears gushing out of her large eye balls. She looked all remorseful. "You want me to lie Juwai? Do you want me to accept the pregnancy I know nothing of?""Noo Yaa Arfaat, you know everything about it, how can you deny your fatherhood?" "Fatherhood??? Juwairiyyah you must be insane to think am going to accept that pregnancy, that baby is not mine and I am reluctant to accept what is not mine. Tell your parents the truth, am out of here!" "Arfaat! Come back here, you can't leave without explaining things to me". Alhaji Abbas commanded in a bitter tone."There is nothing left for me to explain to you Sir, I am not the father of juwai's baby. You can ask her that." "Juwairiyyah, tell me the truth please, kar kisa zuciyata ta buga (Please don't stop my heart). Is Arf
"Juwai!!!" Arfaat shouted shaking her so hard. "Juwai, Juwai don't do this to me. We have a future ahead of us, we have a daughter now....please don't do this!" Arfaat said breaking into tears. "What happened to my daughter? Don't tell me she's dead doctor". Alhaji Abbas said trying to free Juwai from Arfaat's grip. "We need some time alone with her please. You all should go out". The doctor said addressing Arfaat and Alhaji Abbas."Doctor, I want to stay. I have to stay" Arfaat said still holding Juwairiyyah tight in his hands. "She's bleeding alot doctor, we have to act fast". Said one of the nurses."This time around, you are getting out of here!"* It's been three hours, there is still no news about juwairiyyah, none of the doctors and nurses attending to her came out. Arfaat is beginning to loose his senses, he didn't even care to look a
"But he Arfaat is not her father".Juwairiyyah said anger building up in her, and a lot of hatred for Arfaat building more and more in her. She held the baby so tight to her, letting her feel her warmness. She just couldn't help it, and tears rolled down her cheeks, as tears roll down juwairiyyah only shook her head in despair. Wishing she had never came across a being like Arfaat. Hajiya Azumi stood at the doorway, looking at them both and wondering what is really going on between them both. She walked passed Arfaat who still sat in a one sitter, doing nothing but thinking of the best way to bring Juwairiyyah back to him."Let me have the baby Juwai". Hajiya Azumi said stretching her hands to the reach of juwairiyyah. "It seems like you guys have a lot to talk about, I'll take the baby with me so that you can talk peacefully. Am very sure something is wrong with the both of you." &nbs
