Paul told no one he had married. But then, he had no one to tell. He didn’t have friends, was estranged from his family.
Daraja claimed to have a large family and many friends. Her family was in Nigeria, so there was no surprise why he didn’t see them. However, as none of her friends ever came to visit, he assumed they were just school pals.
After living in the house for a week, Daraja spoke about making changes. This is when Paul told her it wasn’t his house. It belonged to his Grandma.
This annoyed Daraja.
If she had known that Paul didn’t own the house… maybe… however, after a short period of silence, Daraja decided they should move to their own place.
Paul didn’t want to leave. Daraja did not argue.
Paul assumed the idea had been dropped until he found Daraja packing up her things, saying she was moving to ‘their’ new place.
