EPISODE 12 (unedited✖)
Odeya ate the tenth spoon and dropped the fork.
“Now tell me.” she said.
Amanda picked the fork, cut from the remaining pancake and ate.
“You know what you are going to do?”
Odeya stared at her.
“..Make friends with your [email protected] mates. Share things to them and apologize to your teacher for being pretty rude to her. When you do that, you will get more respect than you had before.” Amanda said.
Odeya narrowed her eyes. “How can that gain me more respect. I can’t stoop so low to do that, it will hurt and bring down my pride.” she said.
“It’s nice to have pride but showing it off isn’t a nice way to get respects from people. A sweet Odeya is supposed to be loved by so many and be respected in the most lovable way and not being feared or hated. If you make friends with your [email protected], then your wish to become friends with Jeremy would come true. Do you want to do that tomorrow?”
“I don’t like your idea.. I can’t make friends with those s¢vmbags. I only want to be friends with Jeremy but that can’t even be possible. I’m not going to that school anymore. Once dad comes back, I’m gonna tell him.”
“Really? I just told you that becoming friends with your [email protected] would gain you Jeremy’s friendsh!p. And you can’t leave Valentina now, cos your exams are only two weeks away.” Amanda said.
“I don’t care. I can’t stoop low to apologize to anyone. My mom never did.” she said.
‘Her mom again. She’s always doing what her mom does.’
Amanda adjusted on her seat. “Listen up Odeya. I un-derstand how much you love your mom and want to be like her but no matter what, you are not your mom and you can’t be your mom Odeya. God loves children who are respectful and jovial.”
“St©p!! My mom taught me every right thing to do and they are all I’m doing. Just go away. I font nee-d your help anymore. I want to sleep.” Odeya said and [email protected] down.
“If you sleep now, you might find it [email protected] slee-ping at night. You know you are going to school tomorrow.” Amanda said.
“I said that I’m not going back to that school!” Odeya said.
“Fine… Do you really want to sleep or should we go on a little walk? Do you want ice cream. I will buy you alot of it.” Amanda said.
Odeya rolled the duvet over her head in pres£nce. “I’d rather sleep.” she said.
Amanda chuckled. “Come on, I know you are pretending. Don’t worry, I will go drop this things and come back for you. It’s just six. We can take an hour walk. I’m coming… Don’t sleep ok” she said and with that, she carried the tray of empty dish and walked out of Odeya’s room.
Odeya rolled off the duvet and scoffed. “Take a walk. I haven’t done that since I [email protected]£ here.”
Amanda dropped the dishes in the sink, turned and leaned on the counter.
“Her mom taught her the worse manners on earth. She nee-ds to know that and she nee-ds to change from them and I’m going to make sure that I do that. She’s too young and beautiful to be like this.” Amanda said.
Henry stared at his boss in shock as he talked on.
“..I can’t help but fall in love with her. She’s beautiful, S-xy and lovely and to crown it all, she’s a perfect cook. What else I’m I looking for in a woman when Gold has it all?”
Henry couldn’t believe his ears. It seem he was in a serious dream that would never come close to becoming a reality.
“Sir, are you really serious on what you are saying?” Henry asked.
Desmond laughed. “Come on Henry, we are on the friend mode.. Why the sir?”
Henry cleared his throat. “Okay Desmond but I’m shocked by your sudden confession. Like you were yelling at Gold few hours ago.”
Desmond raised his brows. “Was I? Hmm anyways, I’m going out with her tonight.”
That shocked Henry the most. “Really? Where?”
“A movie.” Desmond said.
“Movie? Why movie?” Henry asked.
“I can’t give you the answer.” Desmond said.
“What about your daughter?” Henry asked.
“Well.. She has her nanny with her. Why asking about my daughter?” Desmond said.
“Actually.. With how excited you are right now, you might not get home tonight.” Henry said.
Desmond threw him a pen. “Get out of my office you j£rk.”
Henry smiled and picked up the pen. He dropped it back on the table, and stood up.
“I’m going to finish up for the day.” he said and walked out of Desmond’s office.
Desmond smiled. “I can’t wait to see her.”
Henry walked into the men’s restroom and took out his phone from his pocket and put a call to Gold.
Gold picked up after few ring.
📲”Hello what’s up Henry.” she said first. Henry could feel how excited she was.
“Gold, what happened? How manage?” Henry asked, ma-king sure his voice was low enough.
📲”What are you talking about?” Gold asked.
“I’m talking about him, Desmond. Why is he suddenly mad about you.. He kept talking about you. I’m shocked.” Henry said.
She laughed. 📲”what’s shocking about that? He’s realized he nee-ds me and that’s it. Nothing to be surprised about.” she said.
“Desmond for three years have rejected so many women but how did he fall for you Gold. Come on… I still can’t believe it.” he said.
📲”Well, you have to believe Henry. I told you that he’s gonna fall for me. Now you see it happening. Well I have to prepare for our first [email protected]£. Bye.” she said and ended the call.
Henry [email protected] “Seriously?”
He shook his head. “This is unbelievable.”
The evening was cool and welcoming. The estate road were mainly [email protected] cars and few people walking and among those people were Amanda and Odeya with Ice cream cups in their hand.
“..do you like the taste of the ice cream?” Amanda asked Odeya.
“Not bad.” Odeya said.
“That isn’t what you supposed to answer me.” Amanda said.
“I answered what I want to.” Odeya said.
“But you know it wasn’t the right answer.” Amanda said.
“I guess.. Do you really want the right answer?” She asked.
“Nope.” Amanda said.
“It taste nicer than the pancake I ate earlier.” Odeya sm-irked.
Amanda sneered at her. “If you say so.”
“I said so.” Odeya sneered back.
A bicycle suddenly [email protected]£ from nowhere towards them. Amanda noticed on time and in a swift, she [email protected]£d Odeya and jumped off the way with her.
The bicyclist sped [email protected] but st©pped after and drove back to Amanda and Odeya.
Amanda carried Odeya out of the place they had jumped into.
“Are you hurt? Are you OK Deya?” Amanda asked.
“I am fine. I should be asking you that.” Odeya said.
“I’m fine.” Amanda said and they faced the bicyclist.
The guy put his hands together in plea. “I’m very sorry.”
“It’s okay. You should ride carefully.” Amanda said.
“What? You told him it’s okay? Seriously? No it’s not okay!” Odeya said and walked to the guy who stood, staring at her.
“Hey you. Do you know what you just did? You left the road you were supposed to ride on and [email protected]£ on the pedestrian. Do you realize that you can go to the police station for that huh?” Odeya hurled at the guy who raised his brows in astonishment.
Okay, he can see that she’s an half caste but isn’t she too little to talk this much?
“St©p staring at me and apologize better! I almost got hurt because of you and my nanny as well and you just put your hands together like you are praying to v!rg!nMary’s statue..” Odeya said.
The guy was astonished. “So how do you want me to apologize?”
“Apologize better.” Odeya said.
“Odeya, he had apologized alre-ady. Let’s just head home, it’s getting dark.” Amanda said.
“I think I would have but my nice ice cream got messed up too, so what do he have to say about it?” Odeya said.
“Okay, I would apologize for ri-ding on the walkway and almost hurting you and at the same time spilling your ice cream. I’m very sorry, pardon me.” He said.
Odeya rolled her eyes. “That’s better.”
“Thank you. Anyways, my name is Jimi and your name sound quite familiar. I can’t remember but I think I’ve heard it from my brother. Never mind tho. I [email protected]£ to this estate to see a friend. May I go now?” he said.
“Yeah yeah, plea-se go on.” Amanda said.
He smiled, climbe-d back onto his bicycle and rode away.
“Let’s go Deya, it’s getting dark. Don’t worry, there’s an ice cream vendor over there. We will buy another one.” Amanda said.
“My leg hurts from walking.” Odeya said.
“Really?, I will carry you on my back then.” Amanda said and squatted in front of Deya. “Get on my back.” she said.
Odeya hesitated for a moment then climbe-d on.
Amanda stood up and with met hands behind her, holding Odeya, they headed home.
Odeya [email protected] head on Amanda’s back. ‘Her back feels comfortable tho.’ she thought.
As they were reaching the ice cream shop, Amanda asked Odeya, “do you still want an icecream?”
“Nope” deya answered.
They [email protected] the shop and headed home.
It has gotten dark alre-ady and the stars were appearing eagerly in the sky.
“There are so many stars in the sky. Do you see them Deya?” Ananda said.
Odeya raised her head from Amanda’s back and looked up. “I don’t. They are quite far away.”
Amanda shook her b©dy. “St©p lying…”
Odeya held ti-ghter to Amanda. “St©p! I’m gonna fall.”
Amanda laughed. “Are you really scared?”
“I’m not. Just don’t do that again. Drop me if you are gonna do that again.” Odeya said.
Amanda laughed. “You are so scared right now.”
“Okay yes I am.. Just head home, I’m hungry.” Odeya said.
Desmond pu-ll-ed to the gate of Gold’s house and just immediately, the black gigantic gate opened and Gold stepped out in a skimpy indigo go-wn with tiny sleeves matched with yellow heels and yellow bag. Her weavon perfectly straightened and herl-ips shinning in redl-ipgloss.
Desmond smiled when she walked towards the car. He got down, moved over and opened the car door for her.
“Awwwn you really shouldn’t do this. I can get the door myself.” Gold said.
“No, I can’t let my woman open the door herself.” he said, smiling.
Gold smiled. “Seriously.”
Gold leaned over and k!$$£d him, on thel-ips. “You are such a sweet man. I’m so glad I got you.” she said.
Desmond t©uçhed her cheek. “I love you Gold.” he said.
“Awwwn, I love you too baby. Come on, let’s go before the movie starts.” she said.
“Yeah that’s right.” he said. She entered and he closed the door, then [email protected]£ over to the driver”s seat and soon they were heading to the cinema.
Gold couldn’t st©p staring at the handsome rich guy who just [email protected]£ here.
It seem like a dream. She would ever be grateful to Baba.
“Dont you wanna know the title of the movie we are going to watch?” she asked.
“Sorry baby, Uhmm what’s the title?” Desmond asked.
Gold smiled. “Don’t worry. You gonna see that soon.”
Desmond glanced at her and smiled.
“Focus on the road, so we don’t run into another car.” Gold said.
Desmond smiled and faced the window screen.
“You look so beautiful.” he said.
Gold smiled. “Thanks a lot. You are so handsome, always.”
(An hour later🕐)
Desmond and Gold were laughing as they watched the comedy, [email protected]ç£movie and shared popcorn from one pack.
“Oh my that’s really funny. This man won’t st©p amazing me with his funny roles.” Desmond said.
“They are going to fall in love anyways, just like us.” Gold said and placed her hand on Desmond’s.
Desmond smiled and k!$$£d her cheek.
Gold smiled triumphantly.
‘You are tra-pped in my web forever.’ she said within.
“The title of the first folktale tonight is ‘the reason why Cat and Rat are enemies.’ And here goes the story.
Once upon a time, there was a great famine in the land. The people were going hungry day by day including the animals. Cat and Rat where friends but Cat was considered living rich since his owners were rich and noble citizens in that country but Rat lived with no one and was poor.
As the famine went on, Cat and Rat agreed to bring things. Cat would steal meat and fish and ingredients from his master’s store while Rat would bring ingre and pot, water and fire for the cooking.
This plan went on successfully for days then one day, they [email protected]£ a meeting, the people were called including the animals to discuss on how the famine can be st©pped.
Cat and Rat decided to prepare their meal and eat it when they get back from the meeting and they did.
At the meeting, Rat said to Cat. “Dear friend, I had forgotten my [email protected] at home and can ba-rely see the people in this meeting. I would have to go back home and get my [email protected]”
Cat told him to do so and off Rat went back home to get his [email protected] but immediately he stepped into the house, the aroma of their soup filled his nostril and he couldn’t hold himself from opening the pot. He picked one meat and ate, then another and another but at the fourth one, the pot shifted and covered him.
The meeting finished and Cat wondered why Rat haven’t [email protected]£ back. He headed home and when he got home, what he saw got out tears from his house. He saw the pot of soup upside down then he heard noises inside the pot and when he opened it, it was his friend, Rat. Rat took to his raced and entered into a small hole that Cat couldn’t get in. Cat was enraged and promised to kill Rat if he sets his eyes on him and from then on, Cat and Rat had become enemies and Cat had shown no mercy to any Rat that comes his way. The End.”
“I think the moral lesson there is being patience and endurance. If Rat had endured his hunger, he wouldn’t have become an enemy to Cat.” Odeya said.
Amanda smiled and [email protected] for her. “Wowww I can’t believe you said this Deya. Did you like it this much?”
“It was nice. Go on to the next story. You promised five.” Deya said.
Amanda said. “Yes.. I did. The second is title Tortoise and the hare. Here goes the story…”
The movie got over and the lights [email protected]£ on. Gold and Desmond held hands as they left the cinema.
They got into the car and Desmond drove off.
“Do you wanna head home now?” he asked.
“Yeah, I don’t know how I’m feeling… I’m feeling a bit dizzy.” Gold lied.
“Really. I will drive you home then.” Desmond said.
“This third folktale is so funny and really false. Monkey never got his human like face from ru-bbing an oil God dropped.” Odeya said.
“That’s why it’s called folktale. They are things that never happened and far from being reality but they are told in order to extract moral lessons.” Amanda said.
“Oh yeah, you said that the first time. Well go to the fourth.” Odeya said.
Desmond pu-ll-ed to Gold’s house and unfastened his seatbelt.
“I’m so dizzy, can you help me plea-se?” Gold said.
“Sure.” Desmond said. He got down and moved over to the [email protected]£nger seat door. He opened it and helped Gold down.
Once they got in, Gold [email protected]£d Desmond and pushed herl-ips to his. Nothing could hold Desmond back since all he could think about was Gold Gold GOLD…
“I love this fifth Folktale most. It’s the best you told tonight..” Odeya said.
Amanda smiled. “Now, I’m certain you would go to be-d.”
“I can’t. My dad isn’t home yet.” Odeya said.
Amanda exhaled. ‘That’s true. Why isn’t he back. I missed his pres£nce in this house.’ Amanda said within.
“I’m going to call him. Dad always made sure he returns before 10pm.. But it’s alre-ady ten pm.” Odeya said and took her phone out from the place she dropped it.
She never wanted to t©uçh that phone again but she have to now because her dad isn’t home.
She put a call across to him…
The phone rang and rang and ended.
Odeya looked at Amanda with teary eyes. “He didn’t pick up.”
