that is what am saying. it's not as if they didn't do the right thing by checking their genotype. it was the other scientists fault for not properly carrying out the test.

CHAPTER 10
Femi Brown stood by his wife till she was discharged, even when her Mum, Mrs. Benson was around he still stayed with her and she spent ten days in the hospital. He didn’t get to see Tammy throughout. They only talked on phone, he missed everything about her, her smiles, jokes and even her rants. He missed her 'Go home', ‘I’m not cooking for you today’, ‘you can’t sleep here' and all. He only smiled when her thoughts came to mind.
A day after Tara was discharged, Femi resumed work. His mother in-law, Mrs. Benson was around and Tara's siblings also visited. Femi had a lot of things to cover at work and the fact that he just got himself a new secretary didn’t make things easy for him but he had to give the new lady time to adjust. If it were to be the old secretary, she would have done things meticulously when he was away. He had a lot of signing, phone calls and others office stuff to attend to and he spent the whole day doing that. At the close of work, he was tired so he went home straight contrary to the plan he had to check on Tammy.
He got home and luckily for him, his mother in-law had prepared dinner. He showered, ate and spent time with her wife who was now getting better.
They were both in bed ready to sleep when his wife started asking questions. She wanted to know the blood donor.
“My blood type is very rare and I was told the hospital couldn’t get it, my manager said it was a lady who donated blood” She said.
“Yes, I got a lady to donate since the hospital couldn’t get the blood” He said cautiously not disclosing Tammy’s identity since she said she doesn’t want his wife to know.
“Hope you paid the lady handsomely. She saved my life you know!”
“The truth is that she didn’t collect a dime. She said she’s use to donating blood voluntarily”
“In this country”
“Yes. You know some people are enlightened in such area and they believe so much in saving lives”
“That’s nice of her. Can I meet her?”
“I wanted you to meet her but she said it’s not necessary” He replied truthfully.
“God bless her and keep her safe”
“Amen” He said and covered her wife up with the duvet. He closed his eyes to sleep but he remembered she hasn’t spoke to Tammy that day. So he sent her a text but he didn’t get any reply as usual.
The next day, to Femi’s surprise, Mrs Benson, his mother in-law told him she had an urgent matter to attend to so she had to leave. He almost asked her who will be staying at home with her daughter while he’s at work but he swallowed it. That day he wished he had a maid in the house but since they don’t have one there was nothing he could do about it, at least for now.
He went back to the room to meet his wife.
“Tara. Are you aware your mother is leaving today?”
“Yes. What about it?” She questioned.
“Can you stay in the house all alone?”
“Of course not, you’ll be here with me, till I get back on my feet!”
“Seriously! Tara, you know I have a company to run”
“Did it crumble when you were away for two weeks?”
“That means you made your Mum leave on purpose” He pointed out and Tara quickly sat up to face him in defense.
“You think I’ll give you enough time for you to mess around. No way. You’ll have to take care of me before you go to work and come back home in the evening to cater for my needs and that of the house”
“My God. Tara! When did you turn into this? Where did I go wrong?” He asked soberly as he turned out that Tara cared less about him.
“You want me to be home always, now you have me here. So why are you complaining!” She scoffed.
“This is different, you need someone when I’m not around”
“Well, I said I don’t need any one. I only need you. Do you think I’m a fool, we haven’t had sex in months and you never ask” She confronted him.
“You didn’t want me to ask, Tara. You want me to beg for it like before and I’m sorry I’ve gone past that stage”
“Yeah, you are now in the infidelity stage. But I swear, I’ll get to the bottom of this matter”
The heated argument continued and he feared for her health, she was just recovering so Femi gave up.
“Tara I’m not cheating!” He spilled.
“Tell that to a fool”
“Okay, relax. Don’t stress yourself over nothing. I’m ready to do anything that will make you happy. You don’t want anyone in the house, fine!”
“Good. Now you are talking” She said. Femi let down his guard, he hugged her and assured her he’ll be there for her.
That was how Femi got himself into the task of nursing her wife. He hardly had time for himself, it’s either he’s at home or at work. He only calls Tammy on phone, there are times when he wants to find time to check up on her before going home but his wife would have called that she needs him home urgently, he would have no choice than to rush home to a wife who obviously didn’t need any urgent attention.
Few weeks later, he became a free man when his wife went back to her work. Those weeks he was nursing his wife, she initiated sex once and they had sex. He was happy because in his mind, he thought things were now getting better between them because she had stopped nagging and all.
The next day after his wife resumed work, he got to his office, and gave Tammy a call.
“Good morning friend” he said and she replied. He apologized for not talking to her often. He explained he had been busy joggling both work and family.
”Femi you don’t owe me any explanation. More so it’s not compulsory we talk everyday” She pointed out.
“Tammy don’t start, I’m here feeling as if I neglected you for weeks and you are saying I don’t owe you an explanation!”
“How’s your wife” She asked ignoring his last statement.
“She’s fine. She resumed work today”
“Good to hear”
“How are you doing Tamilore?”
“I’m fine”
“You are not. You don’t sound fine to me”
“My niece turned out to be SS, My brother left home and he hasn’t returned”
“Oh my God! But he’s a doctor and his wife….”
“There was an error in the genotype test of the wife”
“That’s quite unfortunate but I believe he’s fine. Maybe he just needed the space. He will return, let’s be hopeful” He encouraged.
“Thanks”
“Okay, I’ll talk to you later” He said and ended the call.

****
Yomi lied down flat on a prayer mountain in Keffi. He has been there for the past two weeks, praying and fasting. He is the spiritual type, more spiritual than her sister, Tamilore follows his footsteps and he had been grooming her. Yomi had vowed not to leave that mountain until his case is settled.
He cried to God. “God, I know I am a doctor but the truth of the matter is that, this is beyond me. You are the great physician and you are the only God who can do all things. You said in your words that ‘I am the God of all flesh, is there anything too hard for me’ And I believe there’s nothing impossible with you oh Lord. Please help me in my helpless state”
And Finally God spoke to him.
“What do you want me to do for you?”
“God, I want you to help me change my daughter’s genotype to AS” He replied.
“Is that what you want?”
“Yes” He replied.
“Done! Is that all?”
“Yes….”He drawled trying to think.
“Are you sure?”
Yomi closed his eyes tight. “If God is asking him that kind of a question, it means that he hasn’t asked enough” He thought and then he realized his mistake and quickly reply him.
“No, that is not all”
“I’m listening” God said.
“My father in heaven, I don’t want any of my unborn children to be sickle cell”
“Done!”
“Thank you Lord”
“Children of men….you underestimate me” God said.
“God I will never underestimate you” He defended.
“You think so. If you had ask for AA for your daughter, I would have done it but you asked for AS”
“Aww…..God…..you can still….” He wanted to bargain but God spoke.
“You ask for AS and it is done but to prove to you that I can do anything, every other child you have next will be AA”
“Wow! God I’m grateful. I’m okay with that and I will serve you as long as I breathe. Thank you Father, thank you Jesus and thank you HolySpirit” He said and started praising God for another one hour.

Yomi turned on his phone that was off for two weeks and called his wife.
“Yomi! This is not fair. For the past two…
“I’ll explain myself when I get home. I’m on the prayer mountain in Keffi”
“Prayer Mountain”
“Just listen. Take the baby back to the hospital now and run another genotype test”
“I would have ignored you but because you are on the mountain, I’ll do as you have said”
“Good. I’ll join you soon”
Omolara relayed the message to her mother in-law and they went to the hospital with the baby.
Doctor Eben objected at first but they pressured him to do another rerun of the baby’s genotype.
Hours later, they got the result and the baby’s genotype had turned AS. The two women jumped for joy. Hugging each other and praising God. Omolara called her husband and broke the good news to him. He already knew what the result would be.
“This is a miracle” Doctor Eben acknowledged. Even the nurses and lab scientist on duty that day acknowledged that it was indeed a miracle.
The two women returned home joyfully. Shortly after, Yomi returned home. He had grown lean and looked unkept. Omolara jumped on him and they hugged each other.
“Yomi when I first met you, I never saw you as someone who is spiritual, all I saw was a Behind guy but later I got to know beyond that Behind guy, then I agreed to date you”
He smiled. “I know right and it takes a spiritual person to recognize one”
“God actually gave me what I wanted in a man” She hugged him. “Thank you for standing in the gap for our family. I love you more”
“I love you too. All glory to God. Now free me, at least let me shower” He said playfully to his wife who held on tight to him. Omolara released him and followed him to the room while her mother in-law kept dancing with the baby in her arms.
At night, before going to bed, Yomi, his wife and mother gathered together to pray. Yomi told her Mum to lead them in Prayer. She opened her mouth and what came out was a song, ONLY YOU by Ada. She sang in tears of Joy and others joined her.
Only you can do what no ma can do Jehovah
Only can change every situation at all
Only you are able, so so you are capable Jehovah
Only can do what no doctor can do (she added)
Only you can do what no man can do…………
After the prayer, they called their people and shared the testimony. Yomi called the Pastor and they fixed the day of the christening.
Tamilore called her brother later in the evening. First, to congratulate him on the miracle and also to scold him.
“Tammy, what is it?”
“You, God asked you what you wanted but you are so desperate that you ask for AS. Whatever happened to AA!”
“Do you blame, you are right I was too desperate to think straight”
“Be wiser, next time”
“I’ve heard you ma” He laughed and ended the call.
The baby was named ‘Iyanu’ which means Miracle.
