My Hot Tempered Husband: Part 10
As I tried to come to
He won’t get away with this, I promised.
I began to target his own credentials too. He must experience the pain of losing a lifetime credentials just in a moment. For two weeks I searched for his credentials but I couldn’t lay my hand on them.
After much search, I laid my hands on them. He hid them after he burnt mine. The heart of man is so wicked, it took diligent search to be able to discover where he hid them.
At this time my conscience had been locked up in hate and vengeance. I took all including the photocopied ones and burnt them one by one.
You are free to judge me, Dayo taught me to be this wicked. He didn’t discover until two weeks later.
“Where are my credentials?” He screamed at me.
This time I was ready for anything, my heart was hardened and cruel. I pretended as if I didn’t hear him. He came close and grabbed me, as usual, to start beating me. Then I rushed to the kitchen to pick a knife to defend myself.
His anger this time was like that of Simeon and Levi.
He overpowered me and took the knife from me. Beat the hell out of me, stabbed me on my neck twice. He only stopped when he saw me bleeding.
He left me in my pool of blood and fled. I managed to call on one of our neighbours who came and rushed me to the hospital. I was wheeled to the emergency ward but it was too late. I lost my pregnancy.
From the hospital, my uncle came to pick me to his house. That was the end of my marriage with Dayo. He would have killed me if not for God who saved my life.
My uncle tried to get him arrested but he was nowhere to be found. He abandoned everything and ran to only God knows where. Mama could not bear the agony of my predicaments.
I haven’t seen or heard from Dayo now since five years. I will be 39 next month and I want to move on with my life. There is this guy that
For my sisters out there yet to be married, I beg you to listen to the voice of elders. Love does not cure bad character. Before you walk onto the aisle, subject yourself to deliverance if you have negative inheritance.
Dayo never did anything serious to break the jinx of his grandfather’s excessive anger. I was nonchalant about mama’s warning. Mama, please forgive me from your grave. I should have listened to you.
For my sisters living with a hot-tempered man, I understand what you’ve been through. Don’t take it lightly, go on your knees and remould him or else he will kill you someday.
If he is not willing to change, don’t stay in an abusive marriage at the expense of your life. Your life means more to Christ than your marriage. The price he paid on your soul was too expensive to give it away at the altar of uncontrollable anger.
