CALISTA: it must be difficult for you being married in an Ibo family when you are Yoruba..
FUNMI: not really. Well, since I got married I haven’t actually had any problems with my in-laws. Not sure if it’s too early to say they are nice.
Calista: way too early. You’ve only been married for 4 months isn’t it?
Funmi: four days shy of four months
Calista: your marriage is still an embryo
Funmi: hehehehe! Excuse me, Cals I need to ring my husband now. He should be on break.
Calista: alright, hun
EBUKA: hello, sweetheart , you’re alright?
FUNMI: not really; I miss you
EBUKA: I know you love this handsome Igbo prince. So how much do you miss him?

FUNMI: don’t you start feeling on top of the nation. Hahahaha! How has your day been so far?
EBUKA: well, busy as always. I’ve just rounded up a board meeting about 30 minutes ago. By the way! All the guys in the office love my shirt and want to know where I got it from, and I told them wifey got it for me. The single ones all want to get married now. Hahahaha!
Thanks, my beautiful!
FUNMI: that is what you get when you marry a Yoruba queen.
EBUKA: Hey! Don’t go there! Have you had something to eat yet?
FUNMI: no, we just went on break and I decided to ring you first before going out for lunch with Calista. So what would you like for supper? I finish at 4pm today so I’ll head straight to the market.
EBUKA: can we have amala today, please?
FUNMI: Oh! I forgot to mention! Kechi came this morning so I wouldn’t know if she would like it
EBUKA: Nkechi came? When? Is everything okay? How’s my mum??
FUNMI: she turned up while I was about leaving. She said everyone was okay
EBUKA: nah! This habit of showing up in my house when she likes has to stop. What does it take to send me a message that she is coming over! Anyway, I’ll have some serious conversation with her when I get home.
My family do not like Yoruba food at all, so Consider cooking rice or anything else then.
FUNMI: alright. Make sure you eat something as well.
EBUKA: I will, baby. I’ll love you and leave you now. Let me know when you are leaving and drive carefully.
FUNMI: I will. Love you.
EBUKA: love you too, baby. Bye!
NKECHI: dede! You came back early!
EBUKA: it’s 5pm that’s my normal closing time. Why didn’t you tell Me or Fummi you were coming?
NKECHI: I had no credit.
EBUKA: you were online on whatsapp this morning so don’t tell me you had no credit. Besides, I paid in three hundred thousand naira in your account on the 29th of March. So?
NKECHI: ?? but I can come to your house when I want!
EBUKA: Nkechi, I hope you haven’t been too spoilt that you no longer have manners. Common sense should tell you that I am married now and some things may change! How is mama?
NKECHI: I don’t know!
NKECHI: I came straight from Portharcourt!
EBUKA: how was your exams?
NKECHI: don’t ask me!
EBUKA: I haven’t got your time. I’m tired and hungry. Sweetheart! Sweetheart I’m home!
FUNMI: (from the kitchen) registered! Welcome, darli…
