AN EMOTIONAL AFFAIR – THE EPILOGUE

THE AUDIO VERSION IS AVAILABLE TO PATRONS

Christmas day had come, and Lola was past her due date.  She was getting restless, as she had hoped to deliver before Christmas.

Mama had come over as planned to help out before the baby arrived.  She was a Godsend.  Lola was able to put her feet up, while Mama attended to the meals, and Bolu assisted with cleaning.

Seeing as the baby had decided to delay in coming, Bolu had accepted an invitation for them to go to Oyinda’s house for a Christmas dinner.  They’d enjoyed a lovely Christmas Brunch with Mama, and she was happy for them to go and celebrate with their friends, while she rested at home.

Temi greeted Lola at the door and marveled at how huge she had gotten.  “You’re sure you’re not having twins?” she joked.

Lola giggled.  “Merry Christmas to you too!”

Oyinda got up to embrace Bolu, and greeted Lola with a kiss on the cheek.  The table had already been set, but they were still expecting a few people to attend.  Bolu and Oyinda settled to watch a match on TV, while the ladies caught up with themselves.

Danny was among those invited for the Dinner Party.  He joined Bolu and Oyinda on the sofa to enjoy the game.  Oyinda had also invited a single Christian lady, Amaka, who he hoped would be a nice match for Danny.  After the fourth couple arrived, they all took their seats at the dining table to enjoy the lovely Christmas meal Temi had prepared, with a little help from her Cook.

“Pastor, won’t you pray for us?” Oyinda asked Danny, and everyone smiled at the Minister in their midst.

After Danny said the grace, they all tucked into the food.  It was a wonderful banquet, and the conversation flowed as freely as the wine.  Danny and Amaka seemed to be hitting it off well too.

After the meal, Lola got up to use the restroom.  As she got to the doorway, a flood of water gushed from between her thighs.  Lola stood frozen for a moment, while all eyes turned to look at her.  Bolu was immediately by her side.  Their baby was ready to be born at last.

Lola’s contractions had started, and she could hardly speak, so Bolu appreciated their friends for the invitation and excused themselves, so he could take his wife to the hospital.  They all promised to come and visit them the next morning.

**********

At 3am Boxing Day morning, Lola was delivered of a bouncing baby girl.  The delivery had been without complications, and Lola and baby were both doing well.  Bolu was filled with so much energy, though he had been up all night.  He was overjoyed as he rocked his baby girl in his arms.

Mama was the first to meet the couple at the hospital at 6am.  She oohed and aahed over the beautiful girl who looked just like her father, but bore her mother’s complexion.

Temi and Oyinda came at 9am bestowing gifts to the little darling.  Lola had woken up by then, and was sitting up in bed.  She thanked them for their thoughtful gifts.

“What’s her name?” Temi asked.

Lola looked at her husband.  They’d discussed a few names but hadn’t settled on one yet.  Bolu took another look at his beautiful daughter and named her.  “Tinuke Lilian Adetayo.”

“Awww…  What a beautiful name!” Temi gushed, as she petted the sleeping baby.

Folarin came at 9:30am with his wife, Stella.  Bolu had sent a broadcast in the night that he was now a proud father of a bouncing baby girl.  “Congratulations, Bolu and Lola!” they said as they also presented their gifts.

“Oh, thank you so much for coming, Sir!” Bolu replied, overwhelmed by their show of love.

The little hospital room was getting crowded.  Folarin and Stella decided to leave shortly after coming.  They met Danny as they were about leaving.

Danny hugged Bolu, and presented him with his gift.  He went over and kissed Lola’s forehead and congratulated her on the birth of her first child.  Bolu smiled, thinking how far they had come that Danny could do that, without any issues for either him nor Lola.

Folarin lingered a little longer, and Temi and Oyinda made their exit.

At 10am, Bolu’s sister, Tolulope, who lived in Iyana-Ipaja, made it to the hospital.  She brought flowers and a teddy bear for little baby Tinuke.  After greeting her mother, she went to hug her brother and kiss his wife, before proceeding to gush at the little angel asleep in her crib.

Danny looked up when Tolulope breezed into the room, as though someone had just opened the curtains.  His eyes followed her as she greeted everyone, and his heart leaped when she introduced herself to him.  In his heart, he thought, this is “bone of my bones, flesh of my flesh”.  He smiled sheepishly at her.

Danny strode over to Bolu and whispered in his ear, “Who do I ask for permission to marry your sister?”

Bolu chuckled.  “Her mother is still alive.”  He nodded towards his mother, who hadn’t missed the spark between her first child and Danny.

Bimbo winked at Danny, to signify her approval for him to approach Tolu for courtship.  Everyone, except Tolu, knew something magical had just happened to Danny.  He had experienced the very rare phenomenon that is love at first sight.  They all watched as he went over to talk to her.

Lola and Bolu looked at each other and smiled.  Folarin beamed at his wife.  God, who had brought them all together on this fated day, was indeed the best match-maker of all.

THE END.

  7. What a beautiful ending.

    I knew Danny was brought into their path for a reason; to tighten up their relationship as I commented in one of the early episodes. And I’m glad they all ended being this close.

    This is another story that I shall keep in my archive for reference and continous sharing.

    Very well done Ufuoma, the “gifted writer”!

  8. And they all lived happily ever after. Wow. Well done Ufuomaee 👍🏽❤️😊God is the One that takes something broken and turns it into something beautiful. He can never use and dump people. Only the devil does that because he doesn’t give a hoot about us. But God does and he chases after us till we come to see Him. If only people will come to see this.
