*****

Tokinbo prayed.

He prayed the entire 20 minutes drive to the hospital. He silenced all the negative thoughts that were creeping into his mind. Tinu was fine, he knew it and believed it.
He parked his car and dashed into the hospital’s reception and was directed to where his wife was. He saw her parents and Sola at the room’s entrance in what seemed like a prayer circle. Just then the doctor appeared.

‘Mr Williams’ Dr Anjorin, the family Doctor shook his hand.

‘How’s my wife? What happened? Is she okay? Can I go in to see her… ’ He didn’t even wait to hear the answer to all his questions before barging into the room. He saw Atinuke sleeping on the hospital bed; to his relief, she wasn’t strapped to some big machines and it seemed like whatever happened was really minor. He blinked back tears as he gently stroked her hair.
He could have lost her.

‘Mr Williams, please can I speak to you in my office?’
‘Yeah sure doctor.’
They left the room and met Tinu’s parents outside.
‘Tokunbo we’ll leave now and come over to the house’.
‘Thank you sir, thank you ma.’

Inside the doctor’s office, Tokunbo was informed about his wife’s condition. She was very lucky because she only sustained a minor cut on her shoulder which should heal in no time. Dr Anjorin briefed him about the accident based on what he was told by the person that brought her to the hospital. Apparently, Atinuke had run a red light at an intersection and was hit by a car coming from the right. Luckily for her the impact of the collusion was on the rear of the car. The driver of the car brought her to the hospital.

Cold shivers ran through his body as the thought of what would have happened to his wife hit him. She would have died thanks to him because the only explanation for Tinu running a red light was that she had to be lost in thought.

God had given him a second chance.

******

4 hours later in the hospital room, Tokunbo who had been sitting on a chair beside his wife had fallen asleep. Her eyes fluttered open as she tried to adjust to her surroundings and then she remembered the accident. She saw Tokunbo sitting beside her looking so tired.

‘Tokunbo’
His eyes sprang open at the sound of his name.
‘Tinu love’ He pushed the chair backwards and sat on the bed beside her.
‘How are you?’
‘I’m okay,’ she smiled ‘Just a slight headache’.
‘Sorry sweetheart’ his hands went up to her face as he stroked her cheek tenderly.
‘Tokunbo I’m so sorry, I’m sorry I didn’t tell you, I’m…’

He silenced her with a kiss.

*****

5 months later, Atinuke smiled at her reflection in the mirror as she made her way down the stairs . She could definitely see the glow newlyweds supposedly had. Tokunbo would be back any minute from now, she went into the kitchen to turn off the electric cooker; she had cooked Chicken Chow Mein. A recipe she was trying for the first time and it turned out really well.
Atinuke had opened up to her husband about the rape as soon as she left the hospital. He was quiet as she spoke and she was worried when he didn’t say a word even after she finished her revelation. Nothing prepared her for the outburst that followed:

‘You mean that animal went away scot- free after what he did to you???’ he thundered.
She nodded.
‘I can’t believe it’ he hissed and began pacing. ‘And your parents told you never to talk about it? Rape is not some dust or dirt you just sweep under the carpet’ he continued.
‘Tokunbo, it happened a long time ago and I’ve forgiven him. What’s…’
‘Sweetheart I know you have’ he pulled her into a hug. ‘I can’t believe my baby went through that and you didn’t tell me.’
‘I’m sorry TJ, Please forgive me.’
‘There’s nothing to forgive sweets.’ He kissed her gently and held on to her for a while. ‘No more secrets between us, from now on, okay?’

******

Finally, she heard the sound of his car drive in and she walked towards the door to meet him. He looked so handsome in his striped navy blue shirt.
‘Hi honey’
‘Hi sweetie’. He hugged her and planted a kiss on her lips.
‘How was work today? Hope Jumoke liked her cake?’ he asked.
‘Yes she did oh after complaining about me trying to make her fat, but you can trust, she had more than her fair share’.

They chatted for a few minutes till Tokunbo went up to freshen up and came back downstairs for dinner. He walked into the kitchen to meet her and hugged her from behind as she dished their dinner. ‘Yummm, this looks good’, he reached out to grab a chicken strip.

‘By the way, I have a surprise for you.’ he whispered.
‘Hmmmm, really?’
‘Yeah, hold on a sec’
He broke away from the embrace and went into their room. He came out almost immediately with a brown envelope which he handed to her.
‘Go on, open it’ he urged.
Inside it were two flight tickets to Dubai. ‘Oh my!! We are going to Dubai!!!’ She screamed and threw herself at him.
‘Yeah baby, time for that honeymoon we never had.’ He replied as he swept her off her feet.

THE END
