It’s been such a long while! Life happened and a year went by so fast, I can’t even believe it! Time flies chale…. Let’s take a little trip down memory lane…. So Adjo and Kwame met in episode one, and in episode two we were introduced to Adjo’s twin boys. In episode 3 Adjo and Kwame went on their church date and after service her parents invited her to lunch at their home, which is not an uncommon thing with Seventh-Day Adventists. Am I the only one who thinks Adjo is catching feelings already? Let’s see how the story unfolds as we continue with tales from the Taylor’s household! New to the story? Read previous episodes here
Meanwhile in the Taylors’ bedroom……
Grandpa Taylor: Darling, do you think it’s a good thing we left our daughter with this young man? He seems nice but…….
Grandma Taylor: Hehehe. But what? They’ll have sex in the living room? When we are only 2 doors away? Relax, trust Adjo to know better, they’ll do it when we’re not at home.
“What do you mean by “they’ll do it when we’re not at home?” Grandpa Taylor asked. “No one is having sex with my little girl.”
“That’s what my father thought too, but we both know what happened.”
“Hahaha oh you! You know you seduced me right? I was a good boy.”
“You’re right, I did and I’ll do it again, right now.”
“Later darling, let’s read our sabbath school and prepare for church. It’s still sabbath you know.”
“Sabbath so no sex? You know you want it…. Grandma Taylor said and winked at Grandpa Taylor.”
Grandpa Taylor just smiled and pulled her close. As they lay there, all cuddled up, he thought of how lucky he was to have been married to this woman. This woman that was both so strong and soft and had given him a good and happy life. This woman that he fell for many years ago and was still so much in love with. He thought about the first time they met. It was in secondary school, some 43 years ago. He had always admired her from a distance but never had the guts to talk to her. He could never make that move, until they met again after University and now the rest is history. Their marriage hadn’t been always smooth. Like all other marriages, it was great in the beginning. However, as it progressed with time the differences in their character, habits and attitudes reared it’s head leading to never-ending arguments and fights. It didn’t really help matters that he was very soft spoken and she was vocal. It was one argument after another, and he constantly felt unheard and frustrated. But their love for each other kept them together. Even though at a point they didn’t know how to resolve their issues, he knew he didn’t want to lose her. It took time and a lot of effort but they worked it out. Now he has gotten so used to her antics that he just laughs it off. They still do argue though but time has taught them to be more matured about it.
Grandma Taylor : What are you thinking about?
Grandpa Taylor: Us, all that we’ve been through and how far we’ve come
Grandma Taylor: Hehehe we’ve come far ooh my dear. Honestly, I wasn’t expecting us to get past our 5th year of marriage. I remember when we were deciding what we would do when we start having kids. You wanted me to go live with mom and I wanted her to come and stay with us for some time. I just couldn’t understand why you’d want us away from the house. I thought you didn’t want to spend time with me and our child and it drove me crazy! Hahaha.
Grandpa Taylor: I remember. I on the other hand thought it would be more convenient for you.
Grandma Taylor: Hehehe it sure didn’t look like that to me at the time. Do you know one thing I appreciate about you most though T?
Grandpa Taylor: Tell me
Grandma Taylor: You never stopped talking to me. Regardless of how bad our arguments are, you would wake up the next day and still talk to me with respect even when I wasn’t over it yet. That always made me let go and get over it quickly.
Grandpa Taylor: Hehe, well how could I stop talking to you? Who else would brighten up my day like you do? And you also never withheld sex from me. In fact I think we have the best make up sex, don’t you think so?
Grandma Taylor: Yes yes, we do. 3y3 me d3 ntia nka wonnya.
Grandpa Taylor: Hahaha! Let’s get ready for the afternoon service. We shouldn’t be late.
Grandma Taylor: Let’s just lie here for 2 more minutes, just two
Darling please, I know you, 2 minutes will turn to 20 minutes. He said as he got up from the bed to put on his shirt. Go and tell Adjo and Kwame that we’ll be leaving in 10 minutes ok.
