“I STILL LOVE TONYE” (2) SHORT STORY
A week after Tonye left with Boma, Obinna decides he has had enough heartache and prayer. What does he do instead? Surprises await him in this episode, some pleasant, some not so much. Don’t forget to read Episode 1 of this series to fully grasp what is happening in this instalment. You may also want to see the series preceding this one to understand the genesis of Tonye and Obinna’s relationship up to her departure.
“I STILL LOVE TONYE” (2)
Obinna decided it wasn’t necessary to go into the heart of town to shop. There was a mini market under some mango trees at a clearing about a kilometre away from the lodge. One could buy raw and cooked food there, condiments, toiletries and other household items. He went in the company of Enobong, a fellow corps member from their lodge. Enobong spoke Tiv, the local language, because her mum was from the state. It enabled her to bargain well and buy stuff unbelievably cheap. Everyone wanted to shop with her whenever possible.
As they strolled along the dirt road leading from the lodge to the tarred road, a tricycle taxi, popularly called keke pulled up just in front of them. Obinna couldn’t believe his eyes: Tonye was alighting from the keke! She hefted a travelling bag from the back, dumped it by the roadside and paid the driver. As Obinna stared at her, she came closer.
“Where are you guys off to?”
When they didn’t respond, she faced Enobong. “Well done, ma! You know that this guy is mine.”
“I don’t see any name tattooed on his body.”
“Oh, you don dey see im body? How many days I turn my face, you don begin plan to cook edikaikong* for am?” Perhaps the raffia basket Enobong was carrying made her guess they were going to buy food, Obinna thought.
“Run along, Calabar woman. Your winch no go touch this one!”
Obinna could not be more disappointed. This was not the reunion he hoped for when he eagerly anticipated Tonye’s return. He wanted to keep going with Enobong to teach her a lesson but reconsidered because of the travelling bag. It was quite big and he felt obliged to carry it for Tonye.
“Please, don’t be angry, Eno. Here’s my list.” He brought out his wallet and gave her some money to cover the expenses.
The two ladies glared at each other as Enobong marched off, after collecting the stuff from Obinna.
“Mtcheew!” Tonye went. That dried up the “Welcome” Obinna wanted to say to her. He was trying to recall if she was always this rude. She did address him dismissively on some of his spiritual views in the past, but the attack on Enobong was totally uncalled for. All the corps members knew that Enobong was their go-to girl when it came to shopping.
They were attracting curious glances from passersby and residents around, so he carried her bag and they walked back to the lodge. The silence was uncomfortable but Obinna made no effort to break it. He concentrated on dodging the rocks used to fill potholes on the road. Tonye glanced at him a few times but he ignored her. She got angry and walked faster. Obinna, however, maintained his pace. What nonsense is this? After giving me heartache, she returns to start unnecessary drama!
For good measure, he dropped the bag and decided to rest. If she had gone on to the lodge with the keke, I wouldn’t be carrying this heavy load and we wouldn’t be having this palaver* we’re having now. But no, she had to stop and accost us!
When Tonye got to the lodge, the guys were very excited but she snubbed them and went into her room. Don called Obinna.
“Pastor, where you dey? Tonye don show oh!”
“I know, I’m coming.”
By the time he got to the front of the lodge, Don and Chima were there. He dropped the bag for another rest.
“Is that her bag?” Don asked him.
“Wetin you do? E be like say she dey vex,” Chima confronted him.
Obinna gave him an incredulous look.
“See,” Don counselled. “Whatever happens, kiss her. If she shouts at you, kiss her; she beat you, kiss her. Even if she cries, kiss her. Do you hear me?” Obinna was still unbelieving. These guys were off their rockers!
“Oya go, no fall our hand oh!”* That was Chima, lifting the bag and handing it to him. Obinna was angry with Tonye for turning his life into a spectacle. He preferred to watch others, not be the centre of attention like this.
When he reached her door, it was closed. He knocked but heard no response. He wondered what Tonye was up to. After what transpired on the road, he didn’t know how he would be received if he entered her room without invitation. So he took her bag and went to his own room.
God, I don’t have the strength for this. Women and their moods! I don’t want to lose my cool and bring a reproach to your name.
It had just occurred to Obinna that his room was a mess. This is not good! And he started a rapid cleanup. Fifteen minutes later, he had attained a semblance of order in the room. Every unwanted item was stuffed into the bathroom but he decided to clean the toilet bowl which was in the same room just in case. He also mopped the floor of his room. It was remarkable, he noted, that he would go to such trouble just to impress Tonye while he couldn’t be bothered what the other ladies in the lodge thought. Later, as he was donning the shorts he sensed that Tonye liked when he wore it the previous Saturday, there was a rap on the door.
“Just a minute!”
He quicky pulled on a blue Enugu Rangers jersey top. When he opened the door and saw Tonye standing there, and looking adorable in a violet coloured playsuit, her hair falling around her shoulders, he smiled.
“Can I come in?”
She entered the room and looked at his table, looking so tidy, the bed freshly-made in a white bedsheet with blue akwete cloth covering the foot end, and she laughed. She guessed he wasn’t always this neat.
“Are you angry with me?” she asked.
“Not anymore, but I think Enobong might still be.”
“It’s not her that I’m worried about. I’m sorry.”
“You should really be apologising to her, not me.”
“Stop bringing her up. I feel bad that I was rushing back to you and I might have offended you with my jealous outburst.”
“Sweetheart,” (even Obinna was surprised at himself), “you don’t ever have to be jealous about me. I’m all yours. The question is: Are you all mine?”
Before she could answer, there was a knock on the door. It was Enobong. When she came in, she disregarded Tonye and took the stuff she bought for Obinna into the kitchen, daring the former to start her proprietorial “nonsense” again.
When she came out, Tonye said, “Eno, I’m sorry.”
“Stupid girl! You’re not sorry at all. You’re just saying it because of Pastor.”
“You see?” Tonye told Obinna.
Obinna lowered his hand a mite, a gesture that said, “Calm down.” Then he faced Enobong, “Thank you so much.”
“You’re welcome, Pastor. This isn’t over,” she threatened Tonye.
“Eno, journey mercies on your trip,” Obinna added. Enobomg had told him she was going to Lafia in nearby Nassarawa State to visit a friend.
“Thanks,” she replied and left.
Obinna asked Tonye to sit. She leaned against his table. Another knock interrupted. Na waa oh! Am I gonna get the answer to my question today, he wondered. This time, the caller was Don.
“Just checking up on you guys,” Don teased, after Obinna let him in.
“Why?” Tonye asked.
“I heard that Pastor is planning to cook rice and I want him to hurry up so I can eat before we go to watch match.”
“If I hear! Now will you get away!” Tonye rebuked, snapping her fingers. “Imagine ordering someone to cook immediately so you can eat and go out. Is he your wife?”
Don laughed and appealed to Obinna. “Pastor, tell am how far nah.”
“Come back in an hour,” Obinna told him, and he went away singing a high-life tune, “Ezigbo oyi m, i gadi oh!”*
Tonye was staring at Obinna in something close to awe. Why is this guy so nice? What did I ever do to deserve someone like him? She had no clue that they were about to have such a terrible fight that might imperil their budding relationship.

Are you the jealous type or do you have a jealous friend? How is it affecting your relationship?
Do you have the habit of apologising when you wrong people or do you think it’s not important?
What do you do when your apology is rejected? Do you offer fire for fire or do you seek more conciliatory measures? Can you offer examples of such measures?

I am a jealous person but not to the extent of being insulting or rude to people. If I were to be Tonye, I won’t say those things to Enobong, rather I will confront Obinna later when we are alone. And as for where the relationship is heading, for now it’s not yet clear because Tonye owes Obinna some explanation.
You’re right. There was no excuse for Tonye’s hostility towards Enobong and she needs to explain where she went and why she stayed a whole week. You are highly blessed in Jesus’ name.
Tonye hurt Obinna’s feelings first, I don’t see any reason she should be angry seeing Obinna and Eniobong together. Obinna still loves her by carrying that bag to their Lodge and even trying to clean up his room just to impress her.
On the bag thing, I think he was just being nice, which is the kind of person he is. But he does love the babe. Cheers!
I think tonye is rude. she didn’t even consider how obinna felt when she left him, she appeared from nowhere and started creating a scene. She is lucky that obinna is a good person.
I think Obinna is a good example of a Christian: someone who sets an example for others in his speech and conduct. Bless you!
Wow this is cool ,girls sha we can act drama for Africa all this drama maybe to cover up for the previous act ,although it’s normal to be jealous but over doing it is wrong ,yes I have the habit of apologising I don’t even mind if am wrong or right, all I need is for peace to be among us but in the other side I dislike it when I beg someone for long ,when I beg and you don’t comply I give myself a break .
The drama is not just appealing to Obinna. We need grace to forgive and not to retaliate.
Yes I’m a jealous type but I dnt let it out anyhow, I think before concluding about a particular thing. For Tonye, I would say she is still confused on what she wants because for you to maltreat a fellow girl like yourself cus you saw her with your male friend is confusing. I mean this is the same guy she left to follow another person and now she is forming vex. Anyway, we are waiting for the result. For their relationship, I don’t even know what to guess, the suspense is too much.
Yes, my dear, Hunan beings can sometimes contradict themselves so much
I believe Igbo’s call it, “Erigh m, ahagh m.”
Wow! Love is great o! But I think Tonye took it personal. She thought Eno has taken her place in Obinna’s life. In this piece, Tonye is now gate of hell. She does not want to go in and also refusing others to go in. Lol…
Gate of hell! That’s a new one. Lol!
So lovely! I feel so passionate each time I read your stories, ma, and I pray that you will never lack wisdom to inspire in Jesus’ name. Amen.
Thanks a lot, Victor, for your consistency in following my posts. May you receive the same appreciation and more in whatever you do in Jesus’ name.
Obinna is a cool dude to endure tonye to the extend. Tonye knows that she is offended obinna by leaving him for another man. The best thing she should do is apology not to use enobong to cover up.
Tonye’s reaction was uncalled for and it is enough to break their relationship.
I hope she realizes soon that Obinna truly loves her and stop the bad attitude.
Meanwhile, that line, “rap on the door” is so creative. ❤?
I think their relationship will come to an end soonest. So that at least, Obinna would know his stand.
The suspense is killing me, I want more. ??
Abeh, no die oh! Lol! Let’s keep our fingers crossed.
Tonye’s reaction was uncalled for because she didn’t trust her man.
And Obinna’s silence is deadly?
I’m positive they will both come out of this good, maybe not as an item anymore but with lessons learned and stronger.
Nice! Glad you’re enjoying the story. Have a wonderful day!
Seriously this is what is happening in our society today. How can you live someone just like that and expect the person to be waiting for you. Tonye is a very irrational girl and that behavior that she portrayed showed it all. I wish Eno and Obi will continue sef. But anyways let’s see what happens next
Obinna and Eno are not doing anything oh! Just had to clarify that. Cheers!
The level of Tonye’s jealousy is not good for a relationship. She quickly embarrassed Eno and Obinna which is enough to bring a relationship to an end. I cherish the character of Obinna, who exercised patience for a long a time. Kudos!
This story is a lesson to all, having made us to know that jealousy is not a measure of love. Tonya displayed behavioral jealousy whichl nearly end the relationship as observed in Obinna’s thought.I cherished Obinna’s character and think it worth living, but abhor his delayed decision making. Bravo!!!
Tonye is really a character. A jealous girlfriend who takes every little thing so personal. I pray I dont have a girlfriend or a wife as Tonye. I can’t wait for the part 3. ? Nice story, ma. ?
With the insecurity and jealousy of Tonye towards Obinna, she will make him to get tried of condoning her mistakes which will bring their relationship to an end.
Marriage is not just jump into like that.Obinna didn’t think well before engaging tonye that is now the cause of his problem now. Also Tonyes brother Godwin should understand that this is 21st century where everyone has the right to take decision on his or her own on what to do with their life.My advice to Obinna is that he should take heart and look unto the lord for for if tonye is his own,she would surely come back to him.
Tonye is really something else, her bad attitude could land Obinna in trouble. Obinna who is a good guy don’t deserve a girl like Tonye. She needs to change if their relationship is to last
Tonye is really something else, her bad attitude could put Obinna in trouble. Obinna who is a good guy don’t deserve a girl with such attitude. She needs to change her attitudes if their relationship is to last
Hmm.. Sincerely speaking, I’m a jealous type but not to the extent of Tonye. Jealousy could be hidden but she didn’t even try to do that. She has a very bad character, I don’t think Obinna deserves a girl like her in his life cause she is a bad vibe.. Sha if he truly loves her, then I think maybe they can work something out. Love conquers all.
I love tonye is a good write up, a relationship should be built on mutual understanding and jealousy even though is sometimes necessary should be limited or avoided if the relationship is meant to last. Thank you Ma for this wonderful write up .And may God bless you.
Suspense filled! I guess I have to keep my fingers crossed until I get to the end of this story. Great story ma!
When my apology is not accepted l feel bad but l take other measures to make sure l get the forgiveness
Jealousy is a poison we drink expecting it to hurt those whom we are jealous of. For me, I just think Obinna’s prayers are being answered, his eyes are opening and he is beginning to see the true colors of his fiancée but, as they will always say, love is blind….
With Tonye’s jealous attitude I don’t think their relationship is heading any where good. I don’t think jealously is really a sign of love,i think is a sign that you don’t trust the person and no relationship can survive without trust. Moreover Tonye’s reaction was too much, it shows a sign of lack of self control.
waw! what an irony of life. like one IGBO adage, said ” O GBU MMA ANAGHI EKWE KA’ E JIRI MMA SORO YA N’ AZU” meaning TONYE may not be far from filandiarine, that’s why she is suspecting ENOBONG and OBINNA. Although, every man have an atom of jealousy in him or her, but how one reacts to it, is what distinguishes us. We can only feel jealous about the people we love. Because, naturaly, we dont always care about the way or what the people we not love do or their way about. like the way we do about the one we loved, but our ability to control our JEALOUSY, is what makes some persons think that they dont have jealousy in them. “lel JAH be praised”
Nawa for Tonye oo. I didn’t expect her to be this rude. I mean she ought to be feeling bad for the way she left Obinna, only for her to come back and start creating drama up and down.
By the way, I’m begining to fall in love with this series; although it’s my first time of visiting the blog to read the short stories. Nice one, Aunty Edith.
For me, that relationship is headed for the rocks. What kind of girl leaves her Lover, goes away with another man, and then returns to claim him? As if he is a piece of property. I can’t wait to see how this works out.
i dont think i like tonye very much. there was no excuse for her rudeness to enobong, and for her lack of warmth for her to be husband. she strikes me as an authoritative girl. she didnt say thank you when obinna took her bag and she even locked her door against him.
Tonye sounds rude, but I see it as jealousy or fear of losing Obinna. She loves him but is still confused on which path to follow.
You really need to work on your language, dearie. Note how I’ve edited your comments. Cheers!
Obinna is exercising an uncommon trait for a guy which is patience, well maybe that’s why they call him pastor. Tonye owes Obinna a very convincing explanation. I don’t think I would have even looked at her on the way to the market talk more of carrying her bag. I think Obinna is too docile for a guy.
It is so funny that after Obinna waited for Tonye’s arrival, they still had to start up with a little misunderstanding. Tonye has the right to get jealous, but to an extent.
Honestly, I can’t condone that attitude of Tonye, she’s just after her own happiness if I’m permitted to say.
Obinna on his own part should wake up to reality that the fact you love someone shouldn’t make you not know when to caution such a person, especially when she’s wanting to use her jealousy to ruin even casual relationships you are having with others.
Jealousy and care are arguably evidence of love.
Beautiful read. How I follow up apologies differ. For some friends, I pester them to accept it immediately. For others, I know they like to be left for a while. But generally, I make efforts to seek other conciliatory measures immediately before it is termed as arrogance or something else.
Honestly, I don’t know where Obinna’s relationship with Tonye is heading. Tonye seems to me like the kind of girl who will wake up one day to quit the relationship because she is not good enough for him. Lol. Thank you for this series, Ma.
Yea for me, am a hot tempted and jealous type, if I were to be obinna I won’t tolerate tonye attitude for any reason, but all the same I can see that obinna really love tonye so I wish them best of lucks.
I love Obinna’s attitude, he did unleash his anger on her. Because he was actually expecting reunion when Tonye comes back but for the sake of jealousy and insecurity Tonye insulted Enobong. I think someone in a relationship whether a guy or a lady is only insecure when he or she sees the wrong they have done. ” Why is this guy so nice? What did i do to desereve someone like him” This expression by Tonye shows that she is coming to the conclusion of Obinna’s true love for her despite her rude behaviour. She realised that if she continues in her rude ways it may mar their relationship.
Tonye is lucky that Obinna is a nice person ,she shouldn’t be rude at all considering how Obinna felt when she left him and now coming back to create a scene, she is truely lucky to have Obinna
Tonye’s attitude is very rude and immature, she is very lucky that Obinna is such a nice person.interesting story.
Loving someone to the point of jealousy is acceptable ,but to the point of being stupidly insecure is simply immature
Tonia’s attitude wasnt called for, she is really lucky to have someone patient like obinna.what a girl!! Causing a scene like that after a long journey ?…
The story gets more interesting as it progresses with the arrival of Tonye
Tonye is very rude ..after hurting the poor man she still had the mind to be ranting about eno who only wanted to help obinna..I think if it was obinna that cheated on tonye she would have left the relationship without thinking twice
Tonye should work on her character, if not t will affect her future
In a way i feel angry towards tonye on behalf of obinna, how could she, after what she did still come back showcasing jealousy (who does that), however obinna who is obviously soft hearted handled the situation in a way that is extraordinary, tonye even wondered how he could be so nice. well done Ma.
I do encourage obinna to wait for woman are always known with this trickish attitudes may be God has not approved his intention toward tonye
Jealousy and Insecurity can make people act rashly and say/do what they don’t mean. Tonye should explain her whereabouts and give Obinna a definite answer so that he will know his stand.
Tonye’s reaction towards Enobong is nothing to write home about,I won’t call this jealousy but she just feels so unsecured that’s why she acted harshly to her fellow woman,Obinna did the right thing by trying to sort out things with her.
funny though, that’s reality, when you get more attention from a particular person you take them for granted ……..in Tonye’s case her insecurity and jealousy will break the tie……. curious on what happened next ??
.Hmmmmmm…. Obinna is such a loving man I pray for such a man that will love so unconditional and patiently …Tonye’s attitude towards Eno was very immature.
Had it being that obinna used the same anger of what tonye did to her and lashed on her, he might end up losing tonye for good. He did a good thing by being patient and allowing tonye to be the one that will come to him.
I sense jealousy and anger already. I hope
Tonye is fully ready for this o. Poor Enobong. We shouldnt jump into conclusions so quickly they could be disastrous
Saying sorry when wrong is very important in cementing relationships, cause it shows you value that person. For being jealous, is a natural feeling but what matters is to what extent.
Tonye overreacted and her display in public was embarassing, something we should try to avoid together with bad language..i really love the way the story is going and the lessons in it. Eager for part three
Tonye’s attitude towards enobong was rude and disrespectful.. Jealousy is not an excuse …i like the plot line.. Am eager to see episode three
Awww, Obnna is such a nice person. Despite what Tonye did to him, he still treated her well. Can’t wait to see the end of the story.
After all the rude behavior from Tonye, Obinna was still nice to her. Can’t wait to see the end.
Jealousy leads no one anywhere in relationship, rather it destroys relationship. It’s true no one is perfect cause we are humans and have the spirit of jealousy in us but don’t let it overrule.
Tonye sounds rude but maybe she is afraid of losing Obinna. Human beings with selfish character, instead of her to feel bad about her behavior… Hmmmm!
Tonye is so lucky that obinna is a good person.
How can she just disappear into the blue moon…..
Being rude to someone as a result of jealousy is a stupid excuse. My view? She has no right to. After all she left with another man.
I wish you could see smiles on my face right now ma, atleast Tonye came back to obinna. The power of love indeed .. As for Enobong she has every right to be angry but she should still imagine herself in the shoes of Tonye ..who knows she might do worse than that …
First of all, I’m the happiest person on earth to be reading this. I’m so happy you continued the story Ma.
Tonye ooo. Why is her case trying to prove difficult. There are so many questions unanswered, but I’m positive. They will surely settle whatever is coming.
Tonye hurt Obinna first so why is she angry now that she is seeing Obinna with Enobong.
She has no right to be hostile to Enobong because she has frustrated Obinna enough.
My God!!! Just as I was waiting to see what will happen…
I really love Obinna’s maturity. It is disarming.
I so much love this Tonye girl character ?, go girl! We ought to fight for what is ours. If Enobong like let her shop for everyone in that town, she better stay off Obinna. Lol.
Obinna’s friends though, especially Don, he’s so funny. I can’t wait to read the next piece. Thank you Ma for this amazing story.
Obinna is a nice person and this was seen in the way he treats Tonye well despite her bad attitude. But I believe that Tonye will still change for good, it will only take time.
Drama queen what’s that with Eno let insecurities no kill you. Obinna is matured that guy gives me joy
The story keeps getting interesting with the twists and turns… I’m held spell bound MA. TONYE is such a drama queen but then, she knows how to get what she wants. Lol
Bieng jealous is not bad but it should have a limit, I don’t like the way tonye reacted. Her insecurity is uncalled for. I can’t wait for the next episode
A woman getting jealous over her husband is a normal thing in our society. I don’t blame Tonye for getting jealous but she was too quick to conclude that Enobong was up to something. I can’t wait to see what happens next. This is such a cliffhanger.
Girls and their drama. I really enjoyed this episode. Tonye has just landed and there is already an impending fight on the way. I just hope obinna can handle this one because he is too head over heels in love with tonye.
Now I’m really starting to dislike Tonye. Just imagine her appearing out of thin air and behaving like the past week didn’t just happen. Who even gave her the right to insult enobong? How can Obinna take this lying down? Let me just wait and see what happens next
Getting jealous is what every woman is known for ,if your wife to be isn’t jealous obviously she don’t love you.
So I don’t actually blame Tonye for her jealous nature and some part of her being quick to conclude afterall girls can do things this days but on the other part its not fair for her to insult her spouse just because of a girl, that means she is even having trust issues.
Jealousy is in the nature of every woman and that make them most times protective, but tonye took it to the extreme. Knowing to well that obinna isn’t that kind of a person. Understanding you partner should be the basis of any relationship that may lead to marriage. And ladies should adhere to be of good character.
Thank you ma once more
This story is getting more interesting, I just can’t stop smiling as I read, love is really a sweet thing, tonye behavior just like my sister. Obinna is such a gentle guy, after all she has done to him he still helped her to carry her bag????? I think he truly loves her?? next?♀️?♀️
Wow! Interesting! Tonye’s behavior towards Enobong was no good to talk about. Jealousy was the root cause for her behavior but, come on she should have some sense of maturity in her. Has she automatically forgot the role she played or what? On the other hand, l love the role played by Obinna, I just pray she understood what it means in the next episode.
So Tonye can still be Jealous after the unhealthy treatment he meted out to Obinna?
I must commend Obinna for his countenance throughout the whole drama and I hope him and Tonye makes up.
Wow, Tonye is rude! Well, that’s my first impression of her. Just as she thought, she doesn’t deserve someone as nice as Obinna. Imagine her leaving him without so much as a call and then coming back like that to cause a scene. If I were Enebong, I would have given as good as I got and even more. Let’s keep reading!
Jealousy is a normal human emotion but it can destroy a lot of things when you let it consume you. I think the way Tonye acted was wrong but I must also commend Obinna for how he handled the situation. Many relationships have been destroyed because of trivial issues like this one. I can’t really say whether I’m the jealous type but you never know what it will be like when the situation arises. Well I surely hope I don’t act like Tonye. Finally I think that whatever they will be facing in the subsequent episodes will be overcome, with understanding.
This Tonye girl is very annoying and selfish.After messing around with another man,she came back claiming that she still loves him by pursuing his friends.
If I were Obinna, I will not give her the room to have a say in my life again. Nonsense!
Wow! This is getting more interesting, women can be so unpredictable. How can Tonye come back from nowhere just like that and then start acting up.
Anyway, I’m enjoying the suspense…let me quickly rush to the next episode.
Lol! There is nothing men will not see oo…
What kind of attitude did Tonye just display?
This is just too much and I’m not happy that Obinna is just swallowing up everything… I don’t think I can display such calmness and tolerance…
Tonye has madness ooo, I didn’t even see this one coming. Women and their unpredictability. We still have a lot to know about Tonye’s personality. I even doubt their compatibility, but since Obinna is like a sheep, he definitely needs a tiger in his life, right?
I never knew Tonye was this rude, she should work on her self please before she puts someone who loves her despite her flaws to trouble.
I am loving Obinna the more ooo, I really love this story
I don’t why am not comfortable with Tonye’s sudden appearance. Guys like Obinna are very difficult to get. We don’t know what we have till we lose it.
Jealousy, many a time, leads to anger. And anger is kinda a small madness, such that the actor, at that very moment, does not always know and think about what he/she is saying and/or doing at that time, and until its done. I’m glad with the maturity of Obinna and how he has been able to handle Tonye’s madness thus far. We all need to learn from this guy! They said, and nobody is in doubt, that, ‘two wrongs cannot make a right.’
Thank you Dr, Edith. Continued prayers from here.
With this episode, I am really uncertain about what the future holds for Obinna and Tonye.
It’s obvious Tonye is also in love with Obinna so I wonder why all this unnecessary obstacles keeps coming up.
For me, I once admired someone who let me down. It’s a painful experience I don’t wish to ever revisit.
Being jealous in a relationship is healthy in my own opinion. It’s when it’s becoming too much, then it’s a big NO.
I don’t encourage people to be rude to others no matter what, because you don’t know if that person will ever be in the right position to help you. Tonye’s attitude towards Enobong was really uncalled for. Finally, its very good to be nice. I am very sure that Tonye was amazed at how Obinna was so nice to her despite everything.
Tony was being unnecessarily selfish here.After leaving Obinna in such a nasty manner she still came back unannounced and still caused a scene between herself, Enobong and Pastor, which I don’t think is right because she did not acknowledge the fact that she made a mistake.
Wow! What a surprise, finally the long awaited Tonye is back and it was wrong for tonye to have accused Enobong wrongly without concrete evidence of her accusation, well let see how the love birds goes .
It’s like this Tonye of a girl is a DRAMA QUEEN extraordinaire.
“Are you angry with me”? Wow! That’s the best approach she could come up with? No remorse whatsoever?
Her show of jealousy is simply uncalled for at that point in time. Of course I know that jealousy is neccesary in any love relationship but to me, Tonye’s own is unhealthy and not relevant. Perhaps because hers came at the wrong time.
Is she not supposed to be more concerned on making Obinna feel good first?
No doubts, she likes Obinna but…
It’s not cool the way we talk to strangers or even people that we know. We can still meet somewhere which will warrant the person to help you remember the world is a small place. The way tonye talked to enobong is quite very unhealthy and rude. Obinna is really a gentle man he wasn’t sarcastic to tonye rather he was welcoming with his words. Obinna kind of person is rare to come by and tonye is yet to understand that.
Obinna’s response to Tonye’s presence was quite matured and this made her feel really bad which is in line with his plan. Although her attitude towards others was really bad.
Nawaooh…this one is love oo Obinna even carried her bag for her after all the things she has done and the one she is still doing, and she is forming the big lady there.Nawao for Tonye o
hmmmmmm…..i had a friend then , she was not my girl friend ooo but his girl was surper jealous
like she wouldnt give another girl room to talk to me for anything .and when ever another girl talk to me or evn looks at me , its becomes a problem.
me , personally, i dnt like it, its shows you dont really trust me as your friend , you feel you can loss me to some one els if time is not taken and that not healthy for a friendship nor relationship.
and as for apologizes , i apologize even when i am right ,just for peace seek. and if i ever notice evn at a slightest part that i was wrong , i will keep apologizing untill the angels say stop….that is me and its helps . if people can cultivate the habit of apologizing , its really no big deal and its saves alot of drama ,issuses and trouble
I had once thought that people are being unfair to my relationship with them (not love this time around). This is because I thought that I could do anything needful to sustain a relationship but people tend to do less on their part in the sense that they feel less concerned on their own responsibilities. I could also be jealous at times but God has given me the grace of quickly speaking to myself and moving on. Where Obinna and Tonye’s relationship is heading, I don’t no but I will wait to see the story unfold.
I don’t know why Tonye came back. Her return is just making me uncomfortable and the scene she created out there is just not worth it. what i see from Obinna’s reaction is selflessness and Tonye is too selfish and blind to notice that having someone like Obinna as a friend is a privilege. I can’t wait to see what happens next.
Tonye’s attitude towards Eno was uncalled for. Obinna tried by stopping the quarrel which would have led to a full fledged fight between the two ladies.
we should learn to apologize to people, even if they are the one who wronged us.
Countless times, I have been let down by people I admire,sometimes I get to be rude to them and apologize later, when they reject my apology,I will just keep to myself, never apologize again. Yes,am this kind of jealous person(not in a girl and boy relationship),but at home,expecially, when I think dad and mum love my other siblings more,compared to me. It affects my relationship with my siblings. As for Tonye and Obinna: I don’t really know where their relationship is heading to,but all I can say is that they are in love!
Apology has the ability to disarm others of their anger and to prevent further misunderstandings. But if you apologized and your apology was not accepted, you don’t need to relent rather, you find another means to apologize.
And don’t repeat your apology when the person is still very angry with your approach rather, make out another time that will be convincing to apologize the person. You can even go with the person’s best friend if in doubt to help you.
I don’t see Tonye as someone who can possibly act in such a rude manner. She could have acted more civilized. Anyway, I think I’ve become addicted to reading about these two love birds. It’s very interesting. More pleeeeaaaaseee!!!
Obinna tolerated Tonye’ excess because he is calm and nice, not all men will do such…the way its stands their relationship is unstable until she learn from her lessons.
It’s such a funny and interesting story. I can’t stop laughing at Don’s counsel when Obinna came back with Tonye” bag. Tonye’s is very lucky to have someone like Obinna who can tolerate her excesses. The Bible says that love covers a multitude of sin. Obinna truly loves Tonye, I can’t wait to get the whole story.
This Obinna guy is something else (lol). He’d maintain his cool when he should be giving us extra madness to make the story all sweet (this isn’t being added sugar, but I love the story), but he chooses to be the gentleman and I may not forgive him early for that anyways. Tonye here is beginning to irritate as she puts up a reaction so uncalled for. And why? Yes, lack of trust for her man… A very nice story Ma from which we can lesrn from Obinna’s action…
I find it funny as to what tonye did. She ditches obinna for some guy, and when she comes back, she starts acting like obinna still belongs to her. I can’t wait to find out what happens next.
I am impressed at obinna’s tolerance. Even after tonye left him and went with boma and was not seen for a while, even after she returned, I’m surprised that he managed to keep his cool
This Tonye is something else, what does she even think of herself, after leaving poor Obinna all this while, she came back and started claiming rights over him…. She should just thank her stars that Obinna is a good person, if not she for hear am.
Welcome back Tonye! Although we’re all surprised at your very uncalled for outburst. She should start explaining where she went and why she left without reason and without calling instead of playing the jealous girlfriend. She should even be happy he answered her.
My thoughts about Tonye still hasn’t changed. I don’t know what she’s up to. Does she really love Obinna or is she just playing a game? I really hope she’s not playing a game because it will really hurt poor Obinna. This is what you get for proposing too fast.
To me I like obinna’s action toward tonye, it is maturity. Tonye reaction to Enobong is very bad, perhaps she is rude. But has she forgotten so soon that she is to be blamed?
Anyway there is power in love else obinna should have ingnored her this time.
I wonder why Tonye is getting jealous, does it mean obinna is not allowed to move on what? Or could it be that she’s confused about who she really wants
After fasting and praying for Tonye to come back to him , see the way she treated him. I think Obinna is way to nice for Tonye. At least she decided to apologize to him.
Tonye is way out of line her, Obinna has a very enduring character, but Tonye’s problem is too much.
Tony’s rudeness towards Enobong wasn’t appealing at all, but am still imagining why obinna accepted Tonye back so soon after
She left him and followed Boma .And Tonye sudden coming back is suspicious
Someone rightly said that, “whatever you chase, will always run from you”.
Its funny how Tonye appeared at the 11th hour and as for Obinna, I like how he’s playing the whole situation so coolly…
Tonye’s reaction was dramatic and uncalled for. for some, it is enough to break their relationship. I hope she realizes soon that Obinna truly loves her and stop acting up.
Obi has really done much having welcomed the traveller,but, will she appreciate? she better does. she doesn’t even imagine the impact of her actions. i think that Obi should not totally be quiet on why she traveled.
The attitudinal role obinna played in the story is an uncommon trait for a guy and this is called the attitude of patience which not all guys have it. Tonye owes Obinna a very convincing explanation. I don’t think I would have even looked at her on the way to the market talk more of carrying her bag. I think Obinna is too docile for a guy.
The character that Tonye exhibited towards Enobong was not called for. I know Tonye was jealous at that moment when she saw her and Obinna walking together but that didn’t require her to behave in such manner. We should learn to control ourselves especially when it comes to anger so that we won’t say things that we will regret in the future.
Tonye want’s to transfer her confusion to an innocent Eno,I can’t stop liking Obinna’s humility,he is really nice to everyone around him.
Obinna is definitely my dream guy? calm and collected. It’s beautiful how he displays maturity and ease in every situation, really well portrayed. As for tonye, poor girl was acting on base of insecurity. Na Westin you dey fear, dey fine you sometimes.
Obinna is such a nice guy or maybe it’s the love but Tonye is taking him for granted too much. No relationship should function like this one.
Even if they’re to continue the relationship, some ground rules have to be made so Tonye doesn’t feel like she can run off and come back anytime.
I am a very jealous person especially when it involves someone close to me. Tonye ‘s reaction to Enobong when she met them was very acceptable. She was kind of setting boundaries and protecting her man.
Tonye’s rudeness is nothing to write home about. Obinna really have an enduring heart to bear this. I really envy obinna’s love for Tonye.
I am really impressed with obinna’s maturity. Even with the frustrations and everything, he still maintained his Good character.
Tonye didnt act well as she can back to Obinna,no remorse, for Christ sake she has broken this Guy’s heart and that’s too bad of her. sometimes when we act we shouldn’t just worry about our feelings alone,we should also consider the effect our actions have on another person.,
The ‘almighty’ Tonye is back! Lol. She is back with a new attitude – Jealousy. I don’t really blame her actions towards Enobong. She is just guarding what belongs to her. Will she apologize to Obinna?
Can’t wait for the next piece, suspense is killing meeeeeee!
Jealousy they say is healthy for a relationship but not when you over do it, it becomes immaturity. Tonye’s action shows that she don’t trust Obinna but I don’t blame her considering the way things are going between them. And as for apologizing, it is the right thing to do when you wrong somebody. There is a saying that “the first to apologize is the bravest and the first to forgive is the strongest”. I have learn to apologize even when am offended for peace to rain.
This was unexpected. Instead of Tonye to be remorseful about her nonchalant attitude towards Obinna,she’s being rude to Enobong who obviously did nothing to her. I just hope the fight they are about to have will not end their relationship totally.
Tonye being jealous Was not necessary besides her anger also was not necessary. what did she expect Obinna to do?after leaving him sad and helpless, she should be grateful that Obinna is a meek and mild guy if not she would have seen worse.
Tonye’s rude behavior towards Eno was totally uncalled for even if she was jealous she should have handled it in a reasonable manner besides she has no clear evidence to prove that obi was cheating on her
I’m a jealous person but not to the point of being rude or a snub. I mean how can you go missing for over a week without informing your fiancee and the moment you came back, you still had the gusts to insult his market companion without being remorseful about your impromptu disappearance. Well all I can say is that Obinna can tolerate.
she has not yet acknowledged the depth of her action, yet, she insults another person. But obinna has played cool although the quarrel is coming.
Tonye is something else, how can she come back Without letting obinna know, and even acted rude to her fellow lady trying to *fight over her man* anyway it’s a common thing in our society, i hope she realises that obinna loves her so much.
Tonye’s rude behavior was uncalled for cause she don’t have any clear evidence that Obinna is cheating on her
Tonye’s action is unjustifiable. Her being jealous was understandable but the thing she said to Eno were uncalled for.
It appears to me Obinna and Tonye are forcing things in this their relationship they say will lead to marriage. When reading, I was thinking that Obinna should give Tonye some space to think whether there relationship will continue or not judging from the way she refused answering his call in the previous episode.
