Must Read: Love In Times Like This… Part 43

“Over my dead body! You can never marry a man who is a divorcee!” Enomfon’s mother screamed as she angrily whisked the egg the more. She could not control her anger when Enomfon told her of Harry’s visitation with his uncle.
“Mom, First you called him a married man. And now a divorcee…”
“You do not have a clue of what you’re going into. You don’t even know what you’re saying. Didi will grow up and want her mother. Harry will never forget his wife.”
Tears clouded Enomfon’s eyes.
“He loves only me Mom!” She yelled as she wiped her face. “I have never felt this loved since I was born, from someone who isn’t my blood. He loves me with his life. I can feel it within my body and my soul! he will never ever go back to a woman who left him when he had nothing, eloped with another man to London and left her two months old baby with her poor mother inlaw who couldn’t even afford a two square meal for herself. She died mom, she died because Harry couldn’t afford common inhaler for her…She died! Harry couldn’t even afford money to bury her…” She sobbed softly.
“This man has suffered enough. I love him perfectly, and I am happy that I am that woman who put sunshine and light back to his life.” Her heart ached at the echo of her voice.
“He doesn’t have a friend, I am his only friend and family, myself and Didi. He loves just the two of us and nothing can come between us.”
For a few moments, her mother listened to her talk passionately about Harry.
She threw the whisker on the table and held Enomfon’s hands.
“Go ahead…follow your heart. As far as you’re happy. I will give you my blessing. call your brother and let him know of their visitation.” Her mother said softly. Enomfon hugged her tight to herself and kissed her cheeks.
“Thank you mommy.” She whispered softly.
*******
Two lawyers sat in front of a Mercedes Benz, while Linda sat behind. They handed papers to her and a pen.
“Let her sign that. We are waiting to get it back. Tomorrow we will be using it in court.” One of the lawyers said.
Linda stepped out of the car and appeared in the bedroom, she found Atimma deeply asleep on the bed.
“Atim! Atim!” She called her name.
Atimma turned her body and yawned.
“You have to sign these papers now. They lawyers are waiting outside.”
Atimma got up from the bed immediately and took the papers from her. Linda got the papers back and folded it.
“Sign this place. Don’t read, it will take time.” She said boldly.
Atimma’s hands shook as she signed the five pages of papers and handed to Linda. She hugged Linda unexpectedly.
“I know you don’t want my messy body to touch you, but I am grateful. You’re the best friend anyone could ever have. Thank you for taking me back to my family.” She whispered softly.
Looking at the clock, Linda hurried out of bed.
“The lawyers are waiting, tomorrow, you will be meeting your Harry and your daughter. I am so happy for you.” She said convincingly.
Tears streamed out of Atimma’s eyes as Linda walked out hastily from the house. She heard the door slam, she overheard the car starting, she felt in her heart a deep joy that she had never felt before.
The next morning, Atimma woke up early, had her bath and attempted painting her bruised filled face. But she couldn’t. She washed her face off with water and started folding her clothes into a bag. She held the toy she had Bought for Didi from london and stared at it for while. She had imagined how she was going to hand it to her, sleep on her bed. She had imagined making love to Harry and telling him how sorry she was for breaking his heart.
She groaned as her body reacted to her thought. She squeezed her eyes shut and took a long breath.
There was a knock on the door, She reluctantly got up to see who it was, her heart trembled at a woman corporately dressed in black and white polka dotted gown.
“Barrister Judith from the customary court. Your friend miss Linda stood in for you in court today. Please this is the letter given to you by the court.”
Atimma collected it with a confused look on her face.
“I am sorry for your hand. The wound is still fresh, you should see a doctor.” Judith said, as she couldn’t take her eyes off Atimma’s cut hands.
Atimma ignored her and said, “Linda didn’t tell me they were meeting in court today.” She opened the letter reluctantly, it occurred to her at that moment, that there was a danger that was part of her, and fear streaked to her like lightening.
