One day Chief Emeka went out looking for Femi (His adopted son). Now there was a covering of hair cloth over the doorway, but the wind had lifted the covering so that the doorway was uncovered. Yemisi, Femi's wife was in her chamber, undressed, and admiration for her entered Chief Emeka's heart".
The admiration was noticed by Yemisi. She mentioned it to her husband Femi later. He rushed to his father's house ( i.e Chief Emeka) and offered Yemisi to him.
