The Sequel to Dear Obajimi is here, and it is called, Dear Morenike. If you’ve been counting down to May 27 for reasons other than a children’s day party, raise your hands … Yup! I have both hands up too. 😀
As you might have guessed, this short story is Obajimi (the husband)’s response to his wife’s letters. Like
its predecessor the previous story, Dear Morenike is an epistolary short story.
Because this is a sequel, it’s best to read Dear Obajimi first, and then come here to read the next part. That’s how sequels work.
Thank you, Captain Obvious! 😉
Here’s the synopsis:
In this sequel to Dear Obajimi, the story is told from the perspective of the missing spouse.
After receiving his estranged wife’s letters, Obajimi pens one long letter in response. His letter examines his own point of view of their marriage, dwelling on issues of identity, love, trust and commitment. Ultimately, he answers the question Morenike asked in her final letter.
Told in the voice of the husband, this letter throws more light on the challenges that threaten the fragile relationship of a young African couple.
Can there be forgiveness, healing and second chances after abandoning a spouse?
