Yaga went into tantrums as she stood at the gate hurling insults at her step-mom and her dad by extension;
“Woman wrapper you believe whatsoever this witch of a step mom tells you she killed my mom and made me an orphan now you don’t talk to me you despise me because of her juju; God make her barren she’ll never hear the cry of a baby.”
Her dad came after her with a whip;

A baby for a criminal and you end up aborting it was that not your first abortion you hid it from me but I got the information through your friends; he’ll never marry you but deceiving you mark my words.”

“What is it my darling? Is it your family again?” She nodded her head.
“What have they done again?” He asked with keenness.
“My dad under the influence of his witch of a wife drove me home I am now confused where can I find shelter?”
He kept quiet for a while and said;
“Come and live with me.”
She jerked and asked;
“Why not? You don’t have a place and I offered you one why not?”
“You are a man your suggestion impact on both of us differently how would society see me cohabiting with a man who is not my husband?”
“Society! Society! Society! Where was society when your dad under the influence of a with drove you away from your compound? ’Na so den tan dey kin talk! Ignore them and we live our lives.”
