Can Love Really Conquer All? (Emeka & Linda)






Linda noticed her fiancée had been acting unusual the day before the wedding. She put part of it down to wedding jitters. She was so nervous sat at the back seat of the car while the driver pulled up at the church. She held her Dads hand tight
“Daddy what if he doesn’t show up or leaves me at the alter”
“My dear, Emeka would no try it, I would hang him by the genitals, this wedding must go on, with all the dignitaries here and all my life savings? Mba e no fit try am. Besides no man would leave such a beautiful gem on her wedding day” Daddy smiles and gives his daughter a kiss on the head. Daddy leaves the car and some minutes later her cousin comes to the car and says “Aunty Linda , Daddy said I should tell you your husband is waiting for his Gem at the alter” Linda let a sigh of relief out and proceeded to the alter. One look at Emeka standing there looking all groomed and sexy, she knew that day was going to be a day she would never forget. The church wedding was blissful.

Pulling up at the reception venue Linda’s husband asks the driver to get out and leave them in the car.
“Ahn Ahn Emeka people are waiting lets enter, see our wedding train has lined up”
“Linda, I don’t want to start this marriage on a lie”
“I have not lied about anything Emeka, ah see Sola and Titi have entered, yaas Titi ýaas, give it to them, see my babe” Linda says playfully looking at Sola and Titi dancing into the hall.
“Linda listen to me this is important, I slept with Simi at my bachelor eve party” 
There was a long pause, Emeka and Linda starred into each others eyes for a moment, before Linda put her hands on her chest and looked down, breathing heavily.
“…Linda listen.. I don’t love her…it was a stupid mistake…I had too much to drink…baby say something ”

Simisola was Emekas ex girlfriend, that particular one that Linda did not like him communicating with. She did not trust all that, “I can be friends with my ex malarchy”. Whenever she would express her concern in the past, Emeka will tell her she is being childish and unreasonable, he would then assure her he loves Linda and Linda alone.
She could feel her heart sinking into her tummy, all of a sudden her wedding dress felt too tight and the make-up on her face was suffocating her. Her hands felt sweaty and swollen making her ring feel tight and painful
Her dad and the event planner knocked on the car window door and said
“You people should enter now people are waiting”

Linda and Emeka got out and stood in front of the hall prepared to dance in. 
{Would you dance in TTB readers? What would you do?}
Linda got out of the car and walked towards the hall, she could feel and hear her heart beating fast. She grabbed her dress up and held Emeka’s hand ready to go into the hall. She turned to him and said "Love will fix this one my dear, we will be fine, Lets have a great day and revisit this issue tonight”. She gave him a kiss and they danced in like a normal couple. 
During the reception, as their friends came to say hello to them, Simisola and her friend Tara came up to them.
“Congratulations guys” Simi said
“Thank you” Linda replied.
“You look absolutely stunning, that dress is gorgeous” Simi smiled at Linda running her hands on Linda’s dress.
BOOOOOOOOM!!! Linda hit Simi with the hardest uppercut you can ever imagine
The band stopped the music, the guests all looked on in shock. Simi’s nose was gushing blood.
Emeka went to hold Linda, Linda turned to him and said “If you touch me, I will fuck you up”. She turned to the guests and announced, “This lady slept with my husband last night”. Her Yoruba mum came straight to the dance floor and said in Yoruba “Please someone help me remove this prostitute, husband snatcher, dirty girl from here”. The bouncers were there swiftly and lifted Simisola out of the hall and on to the floor on the car-park, with Tara following suit, holding Simi’s bag and shoes. Linda turned to Emeka and said “Shall we have our first dance”. Emeka let out a faint smile and thought to himself “I have married a psycho”.

LOL. Big thanks to Tito of Sarayah Beauty for allowing me share this. Inasmuch as I enjoyed reading this, my main reason for sharing is to ask what your reaction would be, if you're in Linda's shoes. Just before you step into the church to be wed, your partner fesses up to a very painful betrayal. How do you proceed?

  1. Really I don't know,I wouldn't react on the spot like Linda did but I guess we would have to trash it out at night,disgracing the lady wouldn't make much difference anyways.

  2. I know I'll go through with the wedding sha. It happened before the wedding not after so I'm guessing it's easier to forgive... what do I know?

  3. I'll proceed as the spirit leads, if I need to postpone the wedding at that late hour, so be it.

  4. I would react exactly like linda, maybe add a few more slaps before the bouncers get there. Then wait for the after party when emeka would get his.

  8. I don't know exactly what i'll do if I were in Linda's shoe. I love the punch part but I won't announce to the whole world that my husband slept with the girl. I'll just whisper in Simi's ear her sins. She will run from the hall.

  9. Lifblog and Crimson T, the wedding can't be postponed. They've already been joined together. They were about to go into the reception hall.

    As the spirit leads...... can mean anything ooooo.

    The show must go on, after the reception, hehehe my alter ego must surface. Anything that happens, please blame her as she will solely responsible for the actions...

    3. Enjay,we wil go back to church and retract the said vows
      I know i wont dance into that reception thou,it will go on without

  10. Uyi why are you behaving like you didn't eat the popcorn with me, Memphis we left some seeds for you in the microwave. I'm sure they can still pop.
    Meanwhile if I was Emeka I would hold that little piece of news till the morning after the wedding to avoid chaos during the wedding and I wouldn't tell her on the wedding so that she won't stab me in my sleep. What I don't understand is what the ex was doing at the wedding. That's why Linda lost it, the girl put salt on an open wound.
    Now if the roles were reversed, that would be it. I'd call the driver back and ask him to take us back to the church so that I retract my vows in the presence of God and the priest. There's no way I'm going into the reception with that knowledge.
    Exes are dangerous but that's another story entirely.

  11. Lmaooo! The first thing that came to my mind was "this guy is a fool o" lmaoo! Start which marriage on a lie. It already started on a lie nah! Abi was it not at the reception that he confessed? Egbami ke?! In fact... that linda geh is sooo coool! that uppercut was tooo on point! Loool!
    I probably won't do an uppercut(me that I cannot fight) and I won't want to cause a scene on my wedding day! I'll probably just tell her in firm low tones that if she should touch me again... she will die there! Hehehee! Imagine! Some people are just horrible! Meanwhile Emeka is such a stupid man. He should have just waited till later if at all he must confess. That's like one of the most important part of the ceremony. Where the groom and bride walk/dance in as a couple for the first time... where others fantasize about their gown(s), cake, or any other thing they think about... that's the only part I fantasize about o. how I will dance and dance. You wie now come and spoil it for me with that "confession"! In fact! Emeka will pay for it o! Like big time! Hmph!!!!! Just imagine! Just negodu! Lmaoo! (iv been wanting to say that for a long time now! Lmaoo! Perfect opportunity!)

    I can say i'll be calm and just go hysterical.. or say I won't be calm.. and i'll just walk away. But to say i'll dance, smile and be happy is a big fat lie!!!! Omoh, there's no way in this world i'll pretend like everything is okay. I don't even know how. They might as well continue the reception without me!

    Father, may this never ever be my portion o! You know how long iv been waiting for that reception dance! Lool! Thank you!

  12. Truthfully I don't know what I will do but one thing am very sure of is I will frown till the end of the reception. In fact no dancing into the hall. Him sef go feel am.

    It is annoying when the things you have been complaining about becomes a reality. What was he expecting the girl to do at that point,forgive and forget?

    And that Simi of a girl get mind. You sleep with someone's hubby-to-be the night before and you still have the nerve to come to the wedding....ok maybe that is forgiveable*roll eyes* ...she still walks up to the bride and is forming familiarity. That upper cut was well deserved....mtcheww oshi!


    It would take the grace of God for me not to cancel the honey-moon because they both have succeeded in replacing that honey with Alomo.

  13. We recently had our wedding at this place, and we couldn't have been happier. We had a particular vision for our wedding, and we were given just that. This is a unique space at reception halls in Atlanta, with an incredible view. Highly recommended!

Turia Pitt Suffered 65% Burns But Loved Conquered All...

Amazing Story Shared by Dr. Ben Carson on Facebook, i thought it is inspiring and i decided to share;

The Australian ex-model Turia Pitt suffered burns to 65 per cent of her body, lost her fingers and thumb on her right hand and spent five months in hospital after she was trapped by a grassfire in a 100 kilometre ultra-marathon in the Kimberley. Her boyfriend decided to quit his job to care for her recovery. 
Days ago, in an interview for CNN they asked him:
"Did you at any moment think about leaving her and hiring someone to take care of her and moving on with your life?"

His reply touched the world:

"I married her soul, her character, and she's the only woman that will continue to fulfill my dreams."

This made me very reflective. I just wonder; if the person you love today encounters an incident or accident that transforms who they are physically, it could be amputation, it could be paralysis, it could be severe burns that scald their flesh beyond recognition, w…

Good morning people! 
Just checking in to sign the register. Lol. It's been a very busy week and it looks like it might be an even busier weekend. I was hoping to get some writing done when I got to the airport yesterday but I even almost missed my flight. It was hopeless trying to do any work on the plane as it was bumpy af, and this toddler behind me wouldn't stop screaming in piercing shrieks like he was being exorcised. 
I got into town pretty late and needed to keep an appointment ASAP. I'm heading out right now and it's going to be a long day, but thought I should drop this first. 
Have a splendid day. Im'ma be back soon.

#WriteRight. VIVIAN: MY FIRST SEX EXPERIENCE WITH MY BOYFRIEND

He was my coursemate, crush, then my boyfriend.... he was super
intelligent, smart, tall, dark and handsome. Believe me he got
swag, but he didn't seem to notice me. (I'm a nerd but a sassy one
if I say so myself).  So oneday I decided to take it to another level..
After listening to a song "IF YOU LOVE SOMEBODY TELL THEM THAT YOU
LOVE THEM and watching the season film of The Secret Life of
American Teenagers. ..when Amy Jeugerns mum told her "you are only
young once". LOL that part got me.
Hope you know what i mean?

the Quiz that was coming up, we found out that we had this
great chemistry between us.. hehehe both the covalent and
electrovalent bonds....

So one thing led to another till one unusual Saturday. I invited
him to my house and he came. The guy got swag, he even came
with a packet of durex condom.
We talked for a while and and and and and and

THE ‘NEW’ SIDE CHICK: I WAS HER

A side chick is commonly known as a mistress or a woman that’s romantically involved with a man who is in a committed relationship.  However after doing some reflecting, I realize that’s not the only type of side chick.  I want to discuss “the new side chick”–a woman who decides to stay by a man’s side after he has expressed his lack of relationship intentions with her through his words or actions.  So many women have made this mistake at least once in their lifetime, and unfortunately I’ve done the same thing. I like to think of the new side chick as an appetizer.  You’re there just to satisfy the immediate appetite of the man, but as soon as that mouth-watering entrée comes out to the table, you will get pushed to the side, literally.  Why?  Because that entrée is what he really wanted; he went to the restaurant to order steak, not hot wings.  You were just a placeholder, fling, temporary commitment, or  maybe even just a “good ol time” until what he really wanted was presented to hi…

Shhhhhhh....

I'm in an amebo mood tonight. Don't ask me, I honestly don't know why. Also I'd like to share too but I'd do that anonymously in the comment section. Tonight I want to talk about secrets. It's ok, we can all be anonymous. 
Is it true that EVERYBODY has a secret? 
Is there anyone here who doesn't have a secret? I'd really like to know; You're a completely open book and there's not ONE thing about you that you wouldn't mind other people knowing about? Please raise your hands up. 
And for the rest of us, what's something about you that no one knows, or very few people know? Who's got a dark secret here, or a weird one, or a funny one even? I really don't mean to be invasive but I don't want to be the only one sharing, plus I think hearing other people's secrets is quite fun, don't you think?

Let's Be Random Together! (Open Keypad).

Hey guys, a while back blog reader F said something about creating an Open Keypad post, where you can write whatever you want in the comment section. I thought it was a fun idea!
So who is interested? Comment on anything you feel like, ask me or anyone a question, talk about how your day went, your job, your interests, tell us something about you that we don't know, share a testimony with us, rant about anything you feel like, talk about your crush/boo/spouse/relationship/marriage, challenges you're facing, ANYTHING AT ALL! 
I'll only make one request; that we stay civil. 

(F it was you who made this suggestion, right? I'm not too sure and I can't even remember the post the comment was made on). 
BTW please Ejoeccome out come out, wherever you are!

Question of The Day.

TTB readers doesn't this tweet below remind you of something?
That mail that someone sent me a few weeks back. 
But why on earth should a man sleep with his son's fiancé? But what am I saying, some men even sleep with their daughters...

Oh well, I'm throwing the question to you. What has happened in your life that you never saw coming, you never hesperred it, you never imagined could happen, you never imagined could happen to you? 
It could be good, it could be bad, it could be ugly. Do tell!
And it can be more than one. Let me tell you a few. 
-owning a blog -week long dry fast at Prayer City (I never hesperred it).  -staying in an (emotionally) abusive relationship.
The others require anonymity. LOL. Now over to you.
