Foluke ended the call before her mum could question her further. She jumped out of bed, changed into a short gown and walked out of the room in search of her husband. Immediately she opened the door, she saw her husband,  Oladayo pacing the corridor of the hotel rooms.  He had being loitering around the corridor all these while, undecided about where to go. He started walking towards the stairs immediately he sighted his bride . "My husband!" Foluke called running along. "Please wait", she said in a loud whisper not wanting to disturb the guests in the other rooms.  Her husband kept walking down the stairs towards the ground floor, not willing to start a conversation with her.

Foluke's mum kept dialing her number but she wasn't picking up.
Dayo turned to the hotel restaurant, Foluke followed. They both sat at a table.

Read " The Puzzle " by the same author ( Moyosore Teniola )

. Dayo's face was blank,  he looked past his wife and glued his eyes on the T.V in the restaurant,  ignoring her presence as if she was a lifeless figure.
After some minutes,  Foluke held her husband's hands and said silently "I think I can explain." Dayo snatched his hands from her as if he had touched a hot pot. 
"So you have an explanation all along? Yet you pretended as if you were surprised about the whole thing. What else will you explain?  Enh?  Tell me

. "Oh Dayo, I was drugged and someone raped me in the process?" Abi? Dayo ranted on. Look here lady,   I will never fall for such a deceit. I won't be bought by that!" He shouted.

Foluke looked at her husband of 24hours,  she had never seen him this angry before, tears started streaming down her eyes again.  Dayo didn't look like he cared, he felt betrayed,  cheated and hurt. 
"Oladayo please listen to me", Foluke called out after some minutes of perfect silence. "I never meant to betray you, I have loved you since I met you, what would I have gained from telling lies that will hurt you and destroy our marriage? I have always been a virgin, no man has ever seen my nakedness in my entire life except you just this morning. I have kept myself all through".
"Oh really? So how else can you explain what happened back there?" Dayo snapped.
"Please Dayo listen. There is this thing that kept flashing through my mind since you left the room and I kept wondering if it could have been the cause. Though I have never told you about it before."

Dayo shot her an angry look, "So you think this is the best time to start unraveling your dirty past?  Why not during courtship? You deceived me into marrying you Foluke, I will never forgive you for injuring the trust I have in you."
One or two tear drops escaped from his eyes. Foluke was  the only woman he had loved in his entire life, he wondered why she betrayed him. Foluke  noticed the tears, she felt so bad, her heart was broken to see her husband cry and the fact that she was the cause made it too heavy for her to bear.

    NO Amma! He was only of the opinion that she lied to him. Her not being a virgin is not the issue Dayo had...
