At the door of the house, he left us without going inside, he turned us around and we went inside their house, which is a little bit nice. At least we spent more than fifteen minutes ringing the bell to announce the arrival of a guest in the house. I think that no one in the house, not even the one who is close to them, heard this beating that we kept doing. The way Janan acted, very calm and collected, there were no signs of any concern about her, so I realized that this is not the first time that this has happened.
SCENE 02 INDIAN HAUSA It took about five minutes and then I heard a knock on the door, the door was opened, and we all entered the hall. It is said that the flat face went through the mat, despite the luxury items in the living room, that did not make me feel very welcome in the house. We were not given a place to sit, there was no room to come let alone drinking water, so we were left standing in the middle of the room. Then Janan showed me a chair and told me to sit down and let her go and fetch me water. I calmly walked to the chair and sat down, showing respect and greeting. Then she finished smelling the scent and she answered, the body of my son was so easy for her that God didn’t lose the ability to answer. Right after I finished breathing it, I turned to my phone and continued my studies. My heart is full of wonder for this woman. She is not an adult, because from her age we are very young, she is not a member of the royal family, let alone the royal blood in her body, but do you think you have to spread the rule? Although yes, she is beautiful, Masha Allah, and from what I heard, her father is a famous businessman, maybe that’s why she is tall. I just shook my head.
I didn’t even look at the water that Janan brought me, I was wondering if Bilal would come back, I should find another excuse to blow my breath because I can’t stay like this, God only knows.
The three of us were sitting, no one was saying anything, until the sun rose, there was no sign of Yaya. Hair or TV is not turned on in the living room, let’s say it will distract us. In general, I felt constrained, I could not sit like this for a long time, there was no conversation or anything to discuss. My head shaking and my provocations do not allow me to be alone.
SCENE 02 INDIAN HAUSA It was Janan who interrupted the long silence that occupied the room by asking her, ‘Anty, are we going to put the food now?’.
She opened her mouth and said, ‘food will be brought to her from home today, she doesn’t want to smell gas or rice’. in my phone.
May God help us, Yaya chose the right time to fall down the hall as if he had been thrown from the sky.
She jumped and attacked his body, we who were up with the intention of saying goodbye to him, but we were confused because of the atrocities that were going on. So cruel to us! It is not always that you see such an ‘intimate moment’ in front of you. Then one of them finished sucking her mouth and face, and then we heard the signs of their voices rising low, he kept saying that he didn’t get to see their doctor, and he went to his house, but does she have to go to the hospital now? In a low voice like a little girl, she was saying that she wanted him to sit next to her, she didn’t need a doctor.
I tried to suppress my laughter, I thought these ‘cheesy lines’ were only used in movies and novels, not in our real life.
Yaya didn’t even look at us anymore, he just said to us “sit down and wait for me, I’m coming!”, he didn’t wait to hear from us, he grabbed his bride and they entered the room. I closed my mouth and followed them with a look, in my heart I felt more sympathy for Janan. If this is how she is being treated at her brother’s house, only God knows the truth of her situation.
SCENE 03 INDIAN HAUSA She dragged me to her room where it was in the hall, at the end near a small room that they turned into a store. We all sat on the edge of the bed, I sat down and he told me what was happening in the house, from the beginning to the end.
Yayanta’s wife is the kind of women that if God makes you jealous with them, you will be gone. There is no witch doctor, no teacher, they will cook you in cold water and you will die. They are the kind of women who have a little bit of nonsense.
She said behind Yaya Bilal’s eyes, she, Janan and the rest of his family and even their community, do not welcome laundry in her place, but when it is in front of him, she cleans them and scolds them.
SCENE 05 FASSARAR INDIAN HAUSA Ameerah is one of the rich kids. This year she finished her studies. She doesn’t do anything in this house except sit, watch and care for her husband. She has many different jobs, because they don’t spend the night in the house. The cooks, the cleaners, the washermen, even the cleaners, and all of them are paid by her father. She said that now the bowl that was brought to her is full of food, even if she doesn’t touch it, because she doesn’t cook. One day the food was cooked and brought to her from their house. You even have electricity to use in the house, her father pays for it. The brother talked about it, but her parents showed all their love for their daughter.
Since Janan went to the house, she has been baking her palm in cold water. She has no complaints because even when she is playing she does not let Yaya suspect her. Spare the house key that Yaya lost, she answered, she always knocks on her house when she comes back from school, and she humiliates her before she opens the house for her, the food store is locked, sometimes she has to put her money in to buy food . If Yaya is not in the house, then she is not together, all Janan’s efforts to fix things will be in vain. She also said that they were fighting over this session with the manja.
SCENE 06 INDIAN HAUSA FASSARA She also begged him to let her go back to Anty Sa’a since they are in Zaria now, or they are not there, there is her husband’s sister who lives together in the house, so she stays with them, or he takes her home as a boy, or whatever where is it, but he refused. And she didn’t want to force him by saying that he shouldn’t say whether she doesn’t want to be with his wife or something.
Then that day I heard that their father is not the same as Yaya Bilal. Their father Yayan died a while ago, after that she married a man in Kaduna, Janan’s father. Then I understood everything, I was wondering why Ummarsu was living in Kaduna after all their relatives were in Zaria. But I was surprised, even when they were playing, they never showed any difference to her, she or Harira, the daughter of Umma’s opponent, they never showed any hatred or hatred towards her.
She was crying a lot when she told me about this, I hugged her and apologized, because that was the only thing I could do at that time, until she finished crying. Then we took out our books and continued studying until the prayer was called, we got up and prayed, then we went back and continued our studies. While we were there, Anty Ameerah looked and said let’s go and get food, Janan went out to pour the food for us, then she came back and said Yayan said let’s go with them. She said that’s how it is, as long as he is in the house and they eat together. I took my hijab and put it on and we went out.
In the living room, I raised my mouth and looked at the power of God, the whole woman changed, she became like a virtuous person, like she is not the same woman who answers our words with equality.
Then suddenly she gets worried, she seems to pour food into our mouths as she sends plates of varieties of food in front of us. I was so surprised that I couldn’t speak. Janan was really put in a difficult situation. If she is like that, then no one will believe that if a finger is put in her mouth she will bite, unless she does it in front of you.
SCENE 08 We finished eating and went back to the room. When we entered, I started to speak, the woman’s shock prevented me from saying meaningful words, Janan then turned aside and laughed at me. Then I calmed down and I was able to sit down and talk about it with her.
It was after the afternoon prayer there, and I woke up to see that Yaya had no intention of leaving the house. Janan asked me to stop. When Yaya came out, I told her that I have things to do in the hostel, she has to let me go.
From that day I did not step foot to Yaya Bilal’s house until today.
Our studies continue to be successful. Janan and I didn’t take our studies lightly, even though we didn’t do topping, but Alhamdulillah, nothing ever came back to us.
In our third year, Yaya got married again, he married Anty Raheemah. The way he was confused about this marriage, made me even more afraid of men. During his wedding with Anty Ameerah, the way he was shaking his head and dancing, you thought that there is no other girl who will be worthy or in his eyes after her, but since he did not go anywhere, he came across another marriage.
Janan said that they had a little quarrel with Yayan’s wife, to the point that he went out and left her home, which hurt Yaya a lot. He finished renovating their family home, right there he started renovating and he was going to take Ameerah, but her parents forbade it.
It was a peaceful celebration, despite the violence, the bride stayed at her husband’s house, Janan also moved there.
We are happy, thinking that we will go with her, since it is our luck, are we deceiving ourselves.
Raheemah and her younger brothers are such daughters. You will be surprised if you hear that they have a father who is alive, and their parents’ marriage is still there, but they live separately. The world and the love of worldly things blinded them from them to their mother, and their father was a man with a rich heart and fear of God.
From their childhood, following witches and teachers is the answer to their questions and everything. However, who in Zaria does not know about Hajja Ladidi? That’s why the first time I heard that Yaya was going to marry one of her sisters, I was really surprised. They are not the kind of people he interacts with.
Raheemah’s two brothers who are together in their house are fueling the fire in Yaya Bilal’s house. They are both studying at the University of the Congo. Therefore, they left their house in Hanwa and moved there because it is closer to the school. Although in reality it is not like that. Haleemo and Salama are her guardians, they are the ones who go to towns and villages to get medicine for her from teachers and tsubbu while she is at home.
When I wished Janan the best, Aunty Ameerah sat down and said that I wished her badly. According to her, living with Haleemo, despite the abuse they do to her, is a thousand times better than living with Ameerah. So I brought my eyes to her. That’s why I never saw her fault because she goes to Umma every weekend, one day I also owe her.
Since life is nothing but patience, we are now entering our last year, or should I say that we have entered. Even now, nothing has changed, except for the increase in sex. Since they were not able to overcome Yaya’s power over Janan, they came and defeated him. Some times he will scold her as if he is not her brother who loves her, many times she will call me and cry, I can only apologize for half of the things that are happening to her in this house, even their Ummar doesn’t know. since no one in their family came to the house let alone saw the situation she was in.
