*EGG 🥚 OF LIFE*
-You don’t do church things and you screamed JESUS that saved your life.pastor finewine replied.
-listen ma’am, i don’t know how that happened. It just happened. You know when one is in trouble, unconscious statements will be made. Please, i am not interested in your sermons. Thanks so much for helping me out, you can now go. I will foot my bills myself.
-dear, i just hope it won’t be late for you. I just hope you won’t cry had i known. I hope you won’t approach the gate of mercy when it has been shut against you already. May God have mercy on your soul.
-And you too ma’am.
——————-TONY’S APARTMENT ——————-
Tony has been doing the cooking for a while now and susan has not been eating well. She has lost alot of weight too.
That evening, her husband prepared JOLLOF RICE AND CHICKEN. Susan came home. Her mum was already eating. Tony came to the door, collected her hand bag, kissed her and took her straight to the dining.
-I prepared this specially for you, my darling. Sit.
Susan was just looking at the JOLLOF RICE. Smoky hot peppered party JOLLOF RICE, just the way she loved it and a robust chicken lap with salad.
Tony took the fork, took some rice and tried feeding her. She opened her mouth but couldn’t just take it.
-baby, I’m not hungry. I had snacks this evening. I really appreciate this. I’m so sorry. Don’t worry, will take some to work tomorrow said susan
-baby, this is so not fair. I really worked out my self preparing this for us. Please sweetheart, a little taste, please. Replied Tony.
-I just wish you forget about this my love. I will take to work tomorrow.

-Tony my son, Susan’s mum called. Thanks so much for being a caring husband. Never knew you are a good cook. The food was tasty, i enjoyed it.
-thanks ma. Anything for my wife. I love her so much.
