Tumise got home to give her husband the whole gist of the event. But to her greatest surprise her husband raised his hands on her. This was the first time, he yelled at her and slap her face. He called Tumise names, ” you have brought Bad luck to me since day 1 I married you, I regret the day that I met you, you abandoned me here to stay with your stupid friend ,just go back to where ever you are coming from”. He threw a letter at her and slammed the door as he walked out.

Tumise who needed comfort, decided to confide in her neighbour Mrs Johnson, who was more matured and had grown up kids at the University. Mrs Johnson told her not to worry, everything would be fine. She is only giving herself high blood pressure. She should drink some pepper soup and cold beer. Men are very useless. She went further to explain how her husband cheated on her with several ladies. Men are not worthy to be trusted, he was only looking for a excuse to cheat.
Tumise felt a bit relieved, thanked Mrs Johnson as she went to her flat to meet her husband stinkingly drunk and had messed the bedroom up with his vomit.
Tumise was highly irritated, she didn’t know what to do with him. She went to her bag to get some money to buy herself a plate of better soup and a cold beer , and found out her money was missing. She tried asking him, as she was trying to… He was misbehaving, Still trying to figure out why he took her money, the door bell rang, it was Dayo’s mom, her mother in-law.
