    OMG!! Jumoke, God bless you. That was a fat ass whooper at the end. I tried, really tried to read slowly, but I got to the end still. This is one of my daily mantras right here, you just never know, you never know what the next person is suffering through, just because they are smiling, and caring, and all that. Sister T and Anthony’s situation is way worse than Kenny, and she was throwing face up and down.
    Jackie and Lola, raised by a Pastor, and see them with their “self issues”. This Life!!!
    Olajumke Omishore, am a big fan, have read everything you have written online, I think, off to google you to see if I missed one. Am smitten!

      God bless you too, Turban girl.
      Thank you.
      You have sound reasoning there re not knowing what others are going through.

    Don Don Don!!!!! What😱 !!!! Looking forward to the next episode ..

  12. Jay says:

    What the fucking heck!!!!! Sorry Kehinde, i just helped you express the profanity you where reluctant to say. What the bloody fucking heck! Lola is Jack’s mum? Damn! Tony calls his elder sis Mum ignorantly? Damn! Damn!! Damn!!!. To say i am shocked is an understatement. Infact i feel like i hugged a transformer.

    Jumoke i have been following your series closely, even the previous one you wrote, i didn’t comment. But this???? Cant help commaut from my shell. Nice one sis. This episode rivals John Grisham’s pieces. Suspense filled…. betrayal…. shocking…. oya lend me adjectives na..

  13. Sophia says:

    Like seriously????…

  14. zeeniey says:

  15. Simplygold says:

  16. Kemi says:

  21. Just Dotun says:

    This is one messed up family. Lola may be Jackie’s mum. No wonder Tony hates his father.
    Nice twist Jumoke.

  22. jane says:

    gbam!!! nice one joke.

  23. Nwanne says:

    Queen of twists Olajumoke!!! That twist came out of nowhere, I guess there would be more.

  24. Vikki says:

    OMG! This one is strong gon…Jumoke tanchu

  25. Kola says:

    Finally!!! It’s here. Waited so long for this episode @Olajumoke.

    Kenny needs to work to keep Tony. It won’t be fair play if she can just smile and say “I’m sorry Anthony” and all will be forgotten. She needs to try to understand Tony. She obviously isn’t ready to marry him.
    Lola sure needs to get over herself. An abusive relationship/marriage is just that. Change your situation, don’t injure someone else because u feel someone needs to pay for your pain.

  26. Toyenlon says:

    Wow! What a twist… Tony’s mum is also his sister. What a mess.

  27. PJ says:

    yeepa!!!!!. scandals on scandals. Great job jumoke.

  28. ojay says:

    Chai!! Wonders shall never end. Who would have thought? Crazier things really happen in this world. Thanks Jummy, U just shook me out of my silent reader state.

  29. Rikitava says:

    Godammit! What a wawu……really nice. Thanks Jummy
