“I STILL LOVE TONYE” (5) SHORT STORY
The last episode of this series showed the immediate aftermath of Obinna’s row with Tonye. While he was ruminating over the fight, Tonye was telling some girls from the lodge what had happened. Most of them supported her but one sided with Obinna. Is this the end of this engagement which has lasted only one week or their compatibility problem surmountable? The present episode shows whether each of these lovers stick to their guns or seek reconciliation. Enjoy!
“I STILL LOVE TONYE” (5)
When the ladies left Tonye’s room, they went straight to Chima, another lodge mate, to collect their “winnings” on the bets they had made regarding the prospects of Tonye and Obinna’s union. While the guys had wagered that Obinna and Tonye would end up together, the ladies had bet that there was no future for the two. After the invectives they had heard Tonye hurl at Obinna, the ladies were certain they had won. However, Chima and the other guys had gone to watch football matches as his locked door and a subsequent phone call revealed.
Obinna, on his part, reminded himself that he had vowed not to brood over Tonye again, even before she returned. So he finished cooking the jollof rice he was in the process of making when they fell out. He had no appetite to eat but he didn’t know if Tonye had taken anything since she returned from her trip. He felt he should offer her some food, but he didn’t want her to feel it was a conciliatory gesture or a disguised apology. In fact, while he did not intend to keep malice with her, he was unsure he was ready to meet her yet.
After pondering over the matter for a while, he decided to send her the food through Bimbo. his immediate neighbour. While he was knocking on her door, Titi walked into the lodge and said Bimbo and Chioma had gone to Mama Favour’s, a restaurant in the neighbourhood, to eat their Saturday ofe nsala* special. They had just arrived as she was leaving, she said. Obinna then requested that she help deliver the food to Tonye, without going into details about why. Titi agreed and followed him.
As he was scooping the rice into a warmer, Titi came into the kitchen and started spilling the conversation she and the other girls earlier had in Tonye’s room.
“Tonye is way out of line, Pastor. In fact, she is spitting fire and the girls are fanning the flames.”
Obinna was nonplussed. Could Tonye not get anything right, he wondered. How could she tell others that they had fought and even disclose the intimate details of their disagreement? Had she no shame? Titi’s revelation strengthened his resolve to break their engagement. His only concern was that he didn’t know how much more embarrassment he would still suffer at her hands.
Wisdom, the Bible says, is the principal thing. Apparently, this girl is totally bereft of it.
“You must realise that she doesn’t know what she’s doing, Pastor. If you truly love her, tit for tat is not the way to go,” Titi advised.
Obinna thanked her and begged that she not spread the unpleasant tale further. She assured him that she wouldn’t and left. He thought about Titi’s words for a while. He would need to pray about what had just happened between he and Tonye. When he probed deep into his heart, all he could find there was fondness for Tonye. It was unbelievable seeing what she’d put him through, yet it was quite undeniable. However, he was going to keep it locked up down there. And he was certain that nothing will take them back to the point where they were the previous Saturday before Boma, her boyfriend from Port Harcourt, showed up.
Tonye was surprised to see Titi back to her room so soon. Although she tried to conceal it, Titi could tell that she had been crying. She, however, decided not to say anything about it and simply deliver her message.
“Pastor said I should bring you some food. He wasn’t sure you had eaten since you came back.”
This was too much for Tonye and she burst into tears. How could he be worrying about me after all the harsh words I spoke to him? Titi hugged her and then they both sat on the bed.
“I’ve been thinking about what you said earlier – that I should put myself in Obinna’s shoes.” Tonye was speaking and sobbing simultaneously. “Doing that has shown me that I have really treated him badly. Do you know I confronted Enobong when I saw her with him earlier today?”
“No, I didn’t know that. But why?”
“I was jealous. Just because I saw them together. I wonder what I would have done if I saw him in bed with someone. Titi, what am I going to do? Obinna is so angry that he doesn’t want to see me again.” And she broke down into tears again.
Titi held her close and patted her shoulder repeatedly.
“Look at me yapping away before …. There is just no comparison between Obinna and Boma. Ever since Obinna proposed to me, I have had so much peace. But whenever I think of marrying Boma, my heart drops into the pit of my stomach. See how the devil wants to destroy my life.” More rivulets of tears flowed from her eyes.
Titi turned her so they could face each other.
“Stop crying, okay? Just talk to Pastor. Tell him how sorry you are. He is a child of God, he will surely forgive you.”
“Will you come with me? I’m not sure he will listen to me now. And I won’t blame him if he doesn’t.”
“I’m not sure that is a good idea. I think you guys should be alone to work this out. Meanwhile, try and eat something. And wash your face. It’s all red ….”
“No food. I can’t swallow anything now. But I will wash my face.”
Several minutes later, Tonye knocked on Obinna’s door, but there was no response. After a few more knocks, she had to leave. She didn’t know if Obinna refused to see her since he had a peephole on his door or if he had gone out. And she couldn’t summon the confidence to call his line. All she could do was wait. And pray. Pray that God would soften Obinna’s heart. Pray that they would be able to put the past behind them. Pray that they could get their relationship back on track.

Love to hear your views.
Now Tonye is all tears. Do you think she’s truly sorry or she just doesn’t want to lose Obinna?
What should one do when they are so sure they love someone but the person seems all wrong for them?
Can a relationship work when the partners are not fully compatible? Put differently, are there some areas of incompatibility between couples that may not threaten their relationships?
Back to our story, Titi assured Tonye that Obinna would forgive her. Do you think he should?

I think tonye was truly sorry as she had only acted out of jealousy but she shouldn’t have used harsh words on obinna. On the part of boma,they are not meant for each other even her instincts tell her that.
Bless you, Sylvia!
Only God knows if she’s truly sorry.. Lol I don’t trust that girl anymore
Let’s wait and see. She hasn’t really recommended herself in the previous episodes. Have a nice weekend!
Onhoo even the most harsh words cannot hide the truth. I think tonye still loves Obinna just like she said, she got peace after he proposed to her.
Inner peace is usually seen as a confirmation that one is on the right path but it is more true when one is really spiritual, otherwise spiritual.blindness may just be at work.
I think she’s really sorry after considering what Titi said to her she realized that she wouldn’t have accepted it if Obinna cheats on her..At least she has a conscience
I’m anticipating the next episode ma.
A really nice piece indeed. Forgiveness is also an act of love biblically. I really think Tonye could be forgiven tho it may not be easy for Obinna.
All things are possible by God’s grace.
I think Tonye was really sorry and as for for boma it wasn’t meant to be
Everything so far suggests that. Cheers!
It takes a brave man to forgive and forget, but I think Obinna should pray more and seek the face of God for directions.
For your question above, yes I think Obinna should forgive her. For now, we know that she did what she did because she wanted to be free from Boma and get back to him(Obinna) totally.
Though I understand Obinna being ‘born again’ and all, it would be difficult to make that decision.
In relationships, those involved should go through the courting period thoroughly and be 100% sure before taking the next step.
Okay, it’s really left to the individual concerned. Forgive we must as believers, but whether the relationship continues should be a decision taken after much heart searching.
Forgiveness doesn’t mean what happened was ok,and it doesn’t mean that person should be welcome in your life.It just means you’ve made peace with the pain and you are ready to let go….so yes I think obinna should forgive Tonye not because she deserves forgiveness but because he deserves peace.
Good point, because some people think once you’ve forgiven them it means what they did is tolerable.
Even the most honest man cannot escape slander. Tonye still loves Obinna. All she needs to do is work on her temper and she should bridle her tongue. Of course, she has to be sorry, if not she might lose Obinna to Titi.
Lol, Titi is not on Obinna’s radar in that sense. Very good advice though.
time heals every wound, Obinna needs time to think this through and pray.i believe Tonye is truly sorry and he should try and forgive her even though its not easy, he should try…after all, no one is perfect!
Yes, my dear. We all err from time to time and would crave forgiveness too at such times.
Its lovely to see that she is remorseful although i hope she doesnt return to her old path when Boma returns
That would be terrible. Seeing the way Obinna reacted the first time should be enough warning to her.
Its good to know that that she really feels remorseful for her actions but I hope it really came from her heart.
wow! this is an intresting turn of events for a sec i that tonye was truly gonna leave obinna for boma but i guess that God made her feel remorse for putting obinna in a world of pain and then opened her heart back to obinna. boy this got me in a world of suspense, cant wait to see how this will turn out. Best story i have read this month. Bravo ma!
There z this wise saying that says that u can never know the value of what u have until u lose it,I think that tonye was very sorry and would make a difference if given a second Chance
What a suspense-filled story! Who knew Tonye would have remorse for what she put Obinna through. Obviously she has realized her mistake. But the thing is: would Obinna accept her?
True love they say dies hard or never dies. Tonye’s love for Obinna made her jealous on seeing him with another girl. Nothing good comes easily and a bed of roses can’t come without a number of thorns i.e. obstacles. Boma is just an instrument to make the two love-birds stronger. Tonye’s harsh words to Obinna will serve to bring then together.
Tonye has seen reasons with Titi by considering her being in Obinna’s shoes,it is good as she feels remorseful for her actions. Obinna did not let this issue disturb him by considering the fact that she has not eaten since her arrival and sends food for her,what a good act of kindness.
A suspense filled story, can’t wait for the end.
A relationship cannot work when the partners are not fully compatible,One is living in Israel while the other is still in Egypt .She is not a true christian,she drag obinna and lead him astray.
she is not truly sorry for her sin against God she just doesn’t want to lose Obinna…Since she has not confess her and ask God for forgiveness,it is likely that she will continue living in sin
She may love Obinna. but does she love God? A relationship cannot work between a true believer and a hypocrite
When you love someone but the person seems all wrong then run and leave the relationship because a wrong person can ruin your life
Nice story ma. waiting for what will unfold
A relationship needs God to make it stand.
Without God it is weak and will fall.
We should learn not to expose our personal life issues to everyone we see or know, because you don’t know who is after your downfall
Woow…who could possibly believe that Tonye and Obinna’s relationship had become something to bet about. We should know the kind of people we confide in with our secret life because not all that glitters is gold….God bless you, ma, for this… It’s really a must-read for all youths.
Thank God Obinna decided to forgive Tonye. I feel Tonye is really sorry. Every one makes mistakes.
True love they say dies hard or never dies. Tonye’s love for Obinna made her jealous on seeing him with another girl. For me I will say Tonye really loves Obinna but what I don’t understand is why she wouldn’t let go of her ex-boyfriend.
Relationship is about forgiveness, I believe Obinna should forgive her because she is really sorry for her sin….But marriage is a different thing altogether
Tonye should know that the only way to succeed is through God and not asking friends for advice always .
She should also know that letting friends influence their decisions, instead they should let the Bible say and determine their decision in love from as a Christian.
Wow! I wonder what I would have done if I were in Obinna’s shoes. Forgive ke? That’s costly and to think Titi saw Obinna as easy to go because he was a Christian by saying he will forgive. And she has forgotten her amebo work earlier. Tonye should just assess her Christian values and her relationship with God. Because definitely, it seems she lacks it. God’s strength to Obinna.
I don’t trust Tonye. A disloyal person will always be disloyal. I don’t think that girl is truly sorry for what she did to Obinna.
I think she is acting up.
God bless you ma. I can’t wait for the last episode
This Tonye self… Why will she go about sharing her relationship secrets because of anger?…
No mater how angry we are, we should learn to control our anger. We should keep secret…secret!
Obinna the lover boy….keep praying, God will perfect everything!
Honestly judging from the way things are, Tonye still has feelings for Obinna which was very obvious. She even confessed being jealous when she saw him with another lady. I think if they should talk things out, it will be better.
Oh, Tonye is finally back to her senses. I hope she is accepted.
I really feel bad for tonye… at least she realised her mistake. That’s the most important thing in life to realise where u have gone wrong apologise and start over
Awwn, lover girl! Tonye is just confused, though, I believe she truly likes Obinna and genuinely sorry for her earlier actions. I just pray and wish Obinna will forgive her.
God bless every “Titi” in our lives, who advises and saves relationship.
Very interesting story .. Obinna should try to understand that there is no forgiveness without love and there is no love without forgiveness. On the the other hand, Tonye should learn to avoid confiding in just anyone and to ask GOD to help her to control her anger always.
Hmmm let me be looking at Tonye hope this her repentance is genuine
That’s a good step she(Tonye) has taken. It’s obvious that Obinna would make a good husband to her far more better than the other somewhat dictator(Boma).
The only thing that can melt obinna’s heart to forgive her is only prayers
For once in the story, Tonye decided to behave herself. Crying and saying sorry is not the end point. Will Obinna agree to this? Are the tears for real or would she end up repeating her mistakes? Titi is really a good friend with a mature mind.
Some days are like that, when things just begins to go wrong like they were set on a program to happen so fast and leaving you helpless on what to do. But I love what Tonye did, she prayed. This is just the best thing to do in such situation before taking other options into consideration.
We often say hurtful things in moments of anger, but what matters most is how we chose to make amends. Tonye spoke to obinna in a harsh manner and later on realized what she did and tried to make amends. Couples often fight in a relationship and the worst thing you could do is allow yourself, a neutral third party, to be used as a barrier to settle the fight. In most cases, it doesn’t end well for the third party. That’s why Titi refused to accompany Tonye to obinna’s room. We should learn how to handle our own problems and not allow external parties to interfere.
All thanks to titi who made tonye understand how it feels when someone you love so much hurts u, am so happy she realised her mistakes and wants to make amends and i pray obinna will accept her back titi is an example of people we should keep as friends.
If remembering to marry some one, sinks your heart then you two aren’t meant for each other thats for Boma and tonye.
Obina is a child of God he should be able to forgive her since she already acknowledged that she spoke out of jealousy.
Seriously? Now she wants to reconcile? I should have seen this coming. I don’t want to sound unfeeling but this is one story I do not want to end on a happy sappy note. At least not for Tonye. But on second thought what does love have if not the ability to forgive?. I’m eager to see where this goes
She be very remorseful is a good sign of love even though obinna sent her out of his room.and obinna sending food her is also a sign of true love and he is longing for her return in forgiveness.
This tonye is just a drama queen, is she really sorry??????
God is love and that must reflect in our lives as His children. Obinna did what is called true discipleship by introducing Jesus to Tonye the woman he intends to marry. So in any relationship or marriage God should be our role model in loving our spouse.
The drama is getting emotional. Well I think Tonye is really sorry for her to be remorseful and give a second thought to what Titi had earlier said, Obinna should forgive her but not accept her immediately as his girlfriend until he is convinced about her repentance.
Wowwww. This sudden change of heart and tears. Hmmmm, I hope it has a positive effect. Fingers crossed.
Obinna is really a gentleman as shown in his actions towards Tonye even after their quarrel. Who would offer food to someone right after a quarrel? It also shows how much he still loves her. Thank God Tonye has realized her mistake and is willing to make amends. I hope it works out well for them at the end.
Tonye could be this remorseful?
Anyways, it appears she is being genuine this time. Let’s see if Obinna will continue being a gentle man and accepts her back though he still loves her. Thank God for a good friend like Titi who is always there to help out during trying times in relationships
So she can be this emotional. Well I think Obinna should forgive her since she has admitted her fault and asked for forgiveness. Honestly am beginning to think that Tonye loves Obinna but her selfish friends and Boma who she thinks can spoil her with material things will not allow her to confess her love.
Obinna should forgive her if she is truly sorry. but, he shouldn’t start up another relationship with her immediately. They should give each other some space to think over what they both want in their relationship. They should first of all get to know each other well. Obinna needs to be settled and buoyant enough to take care of a family. Marriage is not a bed of roses you just jump into. So i think the both of them should really take their time. There is no need to rush.
For me the subtle way of introducing God in every line and his word does that for me keep the good work going Ma ,can’t wait for the next one …..
Yes! Now she’s thinking. I know for sure that there is power in prayers, I thank God for a friend like Titi, there’s always a friend who tells you when you wrong to your face, and those are the kind of friends we should have around us. Ok let’s analyze it this way, if there was no friend like Titi Tonye wouldn’t know that what she did was wrong. I thank God such friend. Anyone who has such friends should hold them tight and never let them go.
Tonye is crying because she now realise what she did was wrong.
And to what one should do when who they love appear not to be right for them, Hebrews 12:1 says: “Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us”. There is nothing like Endurance in relationship, John 17:17 says, “Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth”.
So we don’t have to give up on them easily, if we love them we have to help to build them, we should not get tired of correcting them.
I think she genuinely feels sorry concerning her actions towards Obinna. Tonye has fallen for Obinna and I hope she fights to get that peace back even if it means becoming a strong believer too. Ma this series is very enlightening.
I wouldn’t say I can forgive Tonye that easily if I was Obinna. Sometimes it’s better to let people actually find out for themselves what they’ve done wrong and actually have a rethink and apologize for them. Tonye I believe is not really a bad person, she just had a wrong start and the wrong people around her. Obinna should just pray about the situation and do whatever it is that he feels right. I also have to say that he forgiving her and them continuing the relationship are two different things, if I were Obinna, I will forgive her and help guide her but I won’t continue the relationship.
Obinna should pray well before welcoming Tonye back into his life, he has being hurt alot, and only God can heal that wound to last forever, I believe that if these wound heals, he will get back with Tonye again
When people are not compatible I don’t think the relationship can work because every relationship need patience and tolerance.
Obinna will forgive tonye as a child of God but I don’t think tonye is sincerely sorry and serious on making amends.
More grace ma
I think Obinna should forgive her because she is truly remorseful and wants the relationship back again.
It’s obvious she has finally realized the angle Obinna was angry about and had tried to place herself in his shoes.
Obinna should forgive her at least she is remorseful about it. I don’t think they are meant to be.
I want to believe Tonye has realized herself and now truly sorry for her actions. However, i trust the Obinna. He has high spirits and can be able to detect a true repentant heart, through God who has been strengthening him. Until i see the two in the next episode sha. My suspense has reached climax! Lol
Thank you, Aunty Edith.
Well am happy Tonye realised her mistakes and took action to make amends, it is good to have good friends around you, who will advise you properly in times of trouble also I must commend obinna, he has a good heart even after the embarrassment he received from her he still took food to her.
I think Obinna will heed to Titi’s advice and forgive Tonye, because from the look of things he truly loves her.
Love is a beautiful thing. Love is sacrificial. Genuine love is what made Obinna to look out for Tonye despite all odds.
On the other hand, it seems Tonye has realized her shortcomings. Thank goodness she’s remorseful this time. I hope Obinna forgives her. I’m sure he’ll do.
Titi is an angel we all need at a time like this.
I believe it’s better you leave a person till they understand there mistake and retrace there footstep. Obinna truly loves her and i hope he forgives her
Titi is really a good friend. Even after what Tonye spilled out, she could still hold and comfort her, so also the kind heartedness of Obinna, we don’t get such these days.
I strongly believe that Obinna will forgive she, imagine after cooking, he didn’t eat and was busy thinking of Tonye, is like he cannot leave without this girl. Thank God Tonye is realizing her mistakes and feeling sorry for being jealous, rude and other things she has done I just pray it’s from her heart because that one am not sure yet.
I think that Obinna should forgive her, if not for any other because of his own peace of mind and the love he has for her still, and being humble to ask for forgiveness is some worth good of her, because it is not all girls can do that.
Any woman that brings herself down to ask for forgiveness should be forgiven no matter her offence because not every woman would do so no matter what. So it’s best for Obinna to forgive Tonye of her wrong doings because she have realized her mistakes and she’s back to her senses,also for the sake of their both happiness and the love he has for her.
fristly , yes i think tonye is truly sorry ,
secondly , i believe the key elements in a relationship is trust and understanding ,we can never find that one perfect person, we grew up differently so we act differently ,
but with understanding and love , u are should to have a beautiful relationship.
anyway , immatured person like me dont have much ideas in this
I think Tonye’s remorse is genuine and she is not trying to pretend. The moment one is in tears for an act done,especially alone as Tonye was when Titi came, then you know that the person is truly sorry. Base on what I can see and understand about Obinna’s personality so far, he will forgive Tonye. I can say that there is a future between both of them but it depends on how they handle their issues subsequently.
I think I agree with Ogbodo somtochukwu that Tonye is deeply sorry for what she did and she has put herself in Obinna ‘s shoes and has discovered that she has hurt him so bad already and she is ready to change because she weighed her fate with Boma and saw that she will never be safe on that side too…that’s why she must strive to put things right between her and Obinna. Involving third parties in a relationship at first spoils a lot of things and makes matters worse..they should Trust themselves the more and communicate properly to avoid intrusion of another person.
Having a remorseful heart like Tonye did is a very nice one. At times you put yourself in peoples’ shoes to know how they feel about a particular thing that is mind troubling. At least Tonye did pray for God’s intervention the very first time…
Tonye! seriously?she’s trying to kill two birds with a stone. Obinna should do what’s right and stop making me tense.Love doesn’t seek the hurt of another. Tonye doesn’t even know what she wants. i guess he should forgive her and part ways.
It’s good that Tonye is feeling sorry for her actions. Thank God for Titi and her good advice, she is a kind of friend we need in life. Surely,I think Titi is right that Obinna will forgive her…that’s what Christians do!
The success of every relationship depends on love and understanding and most importantly, what God is saying about the relationship. Obinna loves Tonye, but Tonye seems to be all wrong for him.He doesn’t have to end the relationship but to seek the face of God concerning it. If it is God’s will, then the onus lies on Obinna to mould Tonye to the kind of woman he wants. This is always difficult and it doesn’t happen so fast. But with time, mutual love and understanding, it will definitely happen and will result in a happy marriage.
I never thought she would be this remorseful and emotional…
Obinna should please forgive her and also keep praying for her because with time, her vices will change to virtues
It comes as a virtue when we throw hubris and ego to the dust and show remorse when we come to realize that we’ve wronged others. And frankly speaking, Tonye’s action is commendable. And as the ball rolls, one question that seeks answer is, “will Obinna accept her again?”
It’s nice to see that tonye has gotten her back her sense. Love is really beautiful. You can never forget someone that truly made you happy. I love this story
Wow..it very rare to see such a caring man like Obinna these days.. Imagine after all the rude and bad attitude Tonye displayed, Obinna still cares by sending food to her. Happy to see that Tonye has realized her mistake and is ready to apologize. I think Obinna should forgive her but he should warn her yo never repeat the mistake.
So Tonye can once in her life think like a human being. Thank God for her good friend Titi who spoke sense into her if not, I doubt if she would have changed.
Eyah I now feel sorry for tonye, she has realized that all those drama she has been putting up is wrong, I hope obinna forgives her,well thank God for titi who spoke sense to her
Meekness and Humbleness pays, Tonye was Meek and humbled to ask for Forgiveness about he Flaws which she identified, She knew the Important of Love in our living, obinna on the other hand has that soft heart in forgiving because he understood that we are not perfect..Stay Blessed.
Its a good thing Tonye now understands the velocity of what she just did. I just hope she’s really, truly sorry. Being sorry is one thing, your attitude after that and how you decide to change is another thing. I hope Obinna helps her to change although am not even a fan of this relationship any more. I don’t understand this love.
I feel the Union already. I think Tonye is deeply sorry for her attitude towards Obinna.
We wouldn’t know if she’s truly sorry until later on in the story. But, I’m happy she has at least realized how wrong she is and that’s a huge step. Both of them need to pray and talk things out to solve this turmoil.
I think Tonye is back to her senses, that’s a big step. It’s good when people realise their mistakes and feel the need to apologize.
Nice piece MA!
I’m really glad that Tonye was able to come to her senses. At least now she feels remorseful for what she did. It still baffles me that Obinna still cares about her hungry state even in the heat if it all. It’s also good that Titi was able to convince Tonye to apologize to Obinna
Thank God for good friends like Titi & good Christians like Obinna… Anticipating the next episode!!!
I believe that as long as Tonye craves forgiveness, she should be granted it. time heals every wound, Obinna needs time to think this through and pray.i believe Tonye is truly sorry and he should try and forgive her, it might not be easy but he deserves his peace.
I think Tonye is becoming remorseful . She is beginning to realise that she had feelings for obinna but my fear is that , will obinna still accept her back?, as he had already made up his mind to move on with his life. No relationship is compatible because every individuals has their own flaws, we only have to build the relationship ourselves by learning to reciprocate our love back, tolerate ones flaw and also have a heart of forgiveness
It’s a good thing Tonye felt remorse for what she did to Obinna and Titi on her part was a good friend
It is true that most relationships don’t workout due to incompatibility between those involved but I believe that true love and understanding can conquer all odds and that is probably what Obinna and Tonye need for their planned couple lives to workout. It is a good thing Tonye realized her mistakes and resolved to go beg for Obinna’s forgiveness.
i think she is truly sorry,just that girls sometimes can over react.but at the same time her way is not really that pure to me.i believe their love is real so the love will over power all the flaws coming in between.
I don’t really blame Tonye for doing what she did, she was somehow jealous and that’s a normal thing amongst some girls. I’m confident that Obinna would forgive her because he has a good heart.
Although it may be difficult, I think Obinna should forgive, when she pleads. With regards to incompatibility, no two humans are totally the same in values, I think. Understanding this fact means that one can tolerate a partner with a different view. Tonye is realising the clean love he has for her. If she repents heartily, I think Obi would forgive.
Tonye is really sorry for her actions
She really thought about what Titi told her
She still cares about Obinna
If she ask for forgiveness he should forgive her
tonye is just being distracted by materials which Boma is using to woe her. I really like the way obinna handle all this issues with ease and proper prayers. Tonye is one lucky girl u know…. I’d like to have that kind of relationship u know where God is involved in everything.
Tonye sorry? No no no she is just scared of loosing obinna,that is what you face when you and your fiance live in the same area,jealousy and suspicion.
In my view.involving ‘third parties’ holds the greatest potential of destroying relationships, I’ve see this first-hand. It’s more reasonable to limit and filter the kind of information we give about out relationships and wiser to know who we share them with. As not every sheep in the flock is regarded a wolf at first glance.
I’m glad Tonye is starting to realize what a rare gem Obinna is. She should do what she can to make things right and also discard her ideology of doing things because everybody does them. I can’t wait to see how this story ends!
Finally Tonye is coming to her right senses, love is a beautuful thing,though it hurts to love and never be loved in return,but what matters is that you love for “God is love”.however,I feel Tonye and Obinna are not compactible,at the other hand,something bond them together which Tonye tends to misuse.I think Tonye can be thought to do that, with the love he has for her.
When it comes to relationship, problems are bound to happen. From this love story, these two love each other so much. That they are incompatible doesn’t change this fact. There is this peace Tonye gets when she is with Obinna, and that is what relationship should be.
Thank God tonye finally realized her mistake. I hope everyone will learn from this great lesson
I am really enjoying this story, at least Tonye is beginning to come back to her senses thanks to Titi.
Forgiveness goes a long way in healing a wounded heart.From what I sense,Tonye is deeply sorry for everything she ever did.she has realised she is wrong after all.And Obinna on the other hand genuinely love Tonye despite all odds.True love is unimaginable,can make one do things one wouldn’t do naturally,it always make a difference.More ink to your pen Ma.can’t wait to know how all will end.
It’s good wen people realize thier faults. I think Tonye is truly sorry for everything, nd i know obinna will forgive her coz he understands she did it out of jealousy. Obinna will forgive coz he is a Christian nd he still loves her, despite wat happened.
Titi’s words really hit her hard.
I think she truly sorry and sincerely want to apologize. She has regretted using those harsh words on Obinna. Will Obinna forgive her? I just pray he does. He is too good to reject her apologies. Lol
Good one ma.
Tonye has recognised that she did something wrong; she is remorseful about it,and willing to make amends.For me, that is a huge progress at making things right.I’m so proud of her now.
I think Tonye is truly sorry. He loves Obinna that’s why she was jealous when she saw him with Enobong but he is confused right now and the advice of those girls are not helping matter at all. I hope that Obinna will forgive her when she ask for forgiveness.
Am not really sure Tonye is really sorry, I mean the way she spoke about there fight to those ladies just made her look so immature. Am kindna begin to pity her now that she is regretting her mistakes but brother Obinna has suffered enough ooo,from the looks of things he still cares about her. Let just see what will happen next.
At last she sumbitted with apology, and Obinna will forgive her. All for love.
The greatest thing is that Tonye realised how badly she hurt Obinna.And i think what made her to be remorseful was when she saw Obinna with Removing,which made her to feel bad the same way Obinna felt in sighting her and Boma. I can also say that Tonye is truly sorry for the bad words she used on Obinna,and she is ready to make peace with him.Tonye has noticed she has future with Obinna and not Boma. Coming to Obinna, he is a nice guy. I know he will forgive Tonye despite what she has done to him, because of the love he has for Tonye. A friend in need is a friend indeed, Titi is such a wonderful friend to Tonye,I love her.
It seems like Tonye have come back to her senses to the point of praying for her relationship to work. I think she’s sincerely sorry for what she did I think Obinna will do shakara and take time to forgive her.
Inner peace is more important than what you feel outside, tonye knows that pastor is very true with her feelings, thank God she’s beginning to come to her senses and I pray that God forgives her and also give pastor a heart to forgive because he is a child of God.
Love hurts sometimes especially when you’re into it. When you give out everything to the one you love. But ma’am I didn’t like the fact that the story didn’t end. You kept me on suspense….
It will soon end! ???
And I believe you’ll love how it ends. Patience, my dear!
The crux of the matter here is this; Obinna and Tonye are two different people in morality and spirituality. Their approach to life took the nature of two parallel lines. Not minding the remorseful feeling of Tonye, they are conspicuously incompatible.
Though, the dissolving of that marriage may seem so painful, it’s the right thing to do.
