He smiled and nodded. 'Yes, please, think over it well. I'm not talking about a fling. I'm talking about becoming the step father to Dorcas and you becoming the step father to Iyabo and my other children.' He smiled again. 'Thank you for your time.'

When Awele returned to her flat, she wondered why she had behaved the way she did. Since she became a divorcee over four years ago, she had been keeping men at bay. Some men had actually shown interest in her, but she had rebuffed them. Why was she giving Daddy Iyabo hope?
Why ...? The answer came. It was a simple one. Despite her tough stance against men: despite her indignation, she still had a soft spot for him.

She did not really like this realization, but it was a fact.

The presence and words of her friend great comforted Margaret.

'Thank God you came,' Maggie said. 'And thank you so much for your consolation.'

'We thank God,' Lara replied. 'That is what friends are for.'

The following morning at work, Maggie avoided looking at him. He looked sober and apologetic at her, but she would not look at his face. During
the lunch hour, he came to see her.

'I have a big explanation to make,' he started. 'Let me start by apologizing for that big embarrassment yesterday. I was going to tell you about it
all. The lady in question ... well, I don't love the lady in question. It's true I got her pregnant about four years ago, but it was all by mistake. I
didn't want to marry her. I still don't want to, but my mother kind of wants me to marry her. That's what happened.'

Margaret breathed in deeply. Yinka should just listen to himself. First, he got a lady pregnant by 'mistake.' Secondly, he didn't want to marry her,
but his mother wanted it. Finally, he kept the big secret from her, Margaret.

But there was something Margaret had learnt. She would be eager to listen and slow to react. Over the previous night, she had thought over
Tony's matter again. She suddenly realized that Tony might actually been saying the truth. In her hasty anger, she refused to even think of this
possibility. She had lost Tony, and the man she thought was better than him turned out to be worse, or so it seemed. But, she would still take
things coolly.

'So, you got her pregnant by mistake?' she asked. 'How?'

'What I mean is I didn't really desire her for marriage. I was surprised when she told me she was pregnant. I was at Oshogbo for Christmas when
it happened. I was back in Lagos when my mummy called to inform me that she came to tell her that she was pregnant. Believe me, I don't love
her and I don't want to marry her.'

Under a normal circumstance, Maggie would have lambasted him and called him names. But, she was changing now.

'Well, it's okay.' She was surprised even by her cool and measured answers. 'In this circumstance, I think it's best you follow the counsel of your
mother and marry the mother of your baby.'

He shook his head vigorously. 'You don't understand. I don't want her. It's you I want.'

'Me?' She chuckled. 'I'm out of the equation. Just like I was sent parking from your apartment yesterday, I've been removed from the picture.'

'No, you're not. After you left yesterday, I had a big quarrel with her concerning how she talked to you. I didn't like it one bit. I'm sorry for that
embarrassment. Please, hear me well, Maggie, I love you and it's you I want to marry.'

Again she chuckled. 'And why didn't you tell me about all these before now? Why did you keep me in the dark?'

'I'm really so sorry about that. Believe me, I intended to tell you.'

Like Tony, he went on his knees. Why would men behave that way? Why shouldn't they carefully consider their action? They would dabble into
an action only to realize that it was not the best and they shouldn't have done it. They would, then, resort to begging!

'Well, the deed has been done,' she said, calmly. 'What d'you now want me to do?'

'Please, Maggie, I want to marry you. I want you to be my wife.'

'And what about the other lady?'

'I can't marry her. Whether mum likes it or not, I won't marry her.'

She breathed in long and slow. 'All this your begging, how do I know you're not deceiving me? How do I know you're still not having an affair with
the other lady? How could I be sure that you're not planning to eat your cake and have it? And, please, get up on your feet.'
