The Mafia Lord
Written by Princess Juliet
I woke up to the sound of my phone ringing..
“Who could be calling me ?
I picked up the phone from the table beside me with sleepy eyes and received it without looking at the caller
“Who is this?”, I grunted
“Troy are you still slee-ping?”, June voice chimed in
“Oh June “. I called, how are you?. Why are you calling by this time?
“What do you mean?”, she asked , it is alre-ady morning
“Really?. I asked opening my eyes wi-der and the rays of the morning sun shone throu-gh the window brightening up the room
“Don’t tell me you are still slee-ping?”, she asked , you promised to attend lectures today
“Lectures? I don’t think that would be possible today”, I informed, i have lot of things to do
“No way Troy.you have been saying that for the past two weeks , it is either today or never”. She informed and ended the call….
“Did she Just end the call on me? Why is she taking this change of a thing so serious? Fine, I promised to change but I never meant it to be this way ..
I dragged myself out of the be-d and went over to the bathroom to freshen up and soon returned to the room when i was done..
I went over to the wardrobe for a change of clothing and headed downstairs …
“Good morning Daddy”. Tricia greeted with her tiny voice , she was sitting on her high chair eating in the dinning
“Morning baby”.i responded, who taught you to greet?
“Daddy mommy”. She replied and my mom who was seated beside her laughed
I smiled at her and sat down on a seat beside her
“What of Trent?”,I asked
“school”. My mom replied. Are you going somewhere?”. She asked
“School”; I replied
“Really?”. She asked in surprise, i have never seen you go to school
“That is because I [email protected] go”. I replied and she gave me a curious stare
“What is up for breakfast?”. I asked
“Bre-ad and scrambled egg”. She replied dishing it out to a plate
I ate my food silently and stood up from the table when I was done
“Daddy”. Tricia called , I want to go to school also
“You will ”.I as-sured her , very soon….::
I drove into the school building and parked in front of my [email protected]
I alighted from the car and all eyes were on me.
I headed to the clas-s ignoring the stares and Murmurs from the students around..
The lecturer st©pped teaching immediately I walked into the clas-s
“Gooood mooooorning Troy”. he greeted stammering
“Treat me like other student”. I said and walked toward a seat ignoring the stares of the students in the clas-s…..
“Continue with your teaching “. I instructed the lecturer and he nodded before he continued
“What a boring clas-s”
I looked around the clas-s and scoffed when I met the gaze of the last person I ever wanted to see… Miguel..
I stared at the account book and threw it at Carl in anger
“Does it mean I am getting getting bankrupt”
“I am sorry Yakusa but”……
“Get out”. I barked
“I said get out”. I yelled puffing out smoke and he scampered out of the room …..
“How did it get to this?
I was known as the riche-st drug lord but everything changed when Troy betrayed me..
I always knew him to be so smart but I never expected him to turn against me
he called it revenge but I call it backstabbing……..
It is time for me to act, I nee-d him out of the way……..
. I sighed in relief when the lecturer walked out of the clas-s.
I stood up and was about leaving the clas-s when I heard my name
I turned back and met the gaze of Miguel
“hey buddy. he greeted smiling, it has really been long
“Don’t act like we are cool”.I replied and walked out on him
“Crazy”. I muttered..
I headed to my car and was surprised to see June leaning on it.
I studied her ,she was looking kind of pale
“babe. I called moving closer , you look pale
“I am having a fever but i will be alright”. she as-sured me
“ Are you sure?”. I asked
“Yes”. she replied smiling, I saw your car parked here on my way back from clas-s and decided to wait for you. How was lectures?
“Boring. I replied and she smiled
“Here”. She said handing me a paper
“What is this?”. I asked looking into the paper
“What I nee-d you to do”. She replied grinning
“What!!!. I exclaimed, what do you mean by all this ? I asked re-ading it out
You must st©p smoking and drugs
You must st©p cursing
You must st©p drinking
And you must quit the Mafia. This is too much June
“No it isn’t, you asked me to teach you to change so this is it
“You must be kidding?”. I asked laughing, are you trying to turn me to a zombie ?
“No I am just trying to change you for the better”. She replied
“Oh yeah”. I drawled, will you be following me home?. I asked
“No. She replied
“Why?”. I asked
“Mum asked me to come over”. She replied
“Alright. I replied , call me when you get home
“I will. She promised
I k!$$£d her before getting into my car and zoomed ….
I glanced at the lists and scoffed
“She really wants to turn me to a zombie”….
I watched Troy drove off and smiled, I was very happy he was trying to change
It took me two weeks to convince him to attend lectures and he did…
I walked to my room happily and was surprised to see Mary alre-ady waiting for me
“Didn’t you attend lectures?”. I asked her
“I did but the lecturer rounded up the clas-s earlier. How was lectures?
“Fine, the lec……..I st©pped when I felt the urge to puke and ran into the bathroom…..
I returned to the room feeling weak and met Mary curious gaze
“What is wrong with you?”. She asked
“I don’t know”. I replied with a shrug, can we go now?
“Sure “. She said still looking at me weirdly…
We paid the driver and alighted when we got to the front of our home …
We walked into the sitting room and met my mum seated on the sofa
“Mary June “. She called standing up to hvg us
“Mother”. We called hvgging her back, we really miss you
“how is dad?”. I asked
“he is not back from work? . She replied studying me , What is wrong with you? She asked, you look pale
“I feel feverish”. I replied
“I am sorry baby. she said checking my temperature, you nee-d to go see the doctor…
We walked into the Doctor office when we got to the hospital
“Good morning Sam”. My mom greeted the doctor as we walked in
“Ophelia”. how are you doing?”. he asked my mom and flashed me a smile,how are you June?
“I am fine sir”. I replied shyly
“Did you come for a general checkup?”.he asked as we took our seat
“No. my mom replied,June is sick
“What exactly is wrong with you?”. The doctor asked me
“I feel weak most of the time”. I replied
“Is that all?”. he asked
“Yes. I lied
“I will nee-d to carry out a test to find out exactly what is wrong with you”. he informed….
“Oooouch!. I exclaimed as he drew out blood from me
“Sorry baby”. My mom said patting me
The doctor soon left with the blood sample…..
“ you will be alright”. My mom as-sured me and I gave her a small smile….
We waited for about 20 mins before the doctor walked in , he was looking gloomy
“I nee-d to see you pri-vately Ophelia”. he informed
“Is anything wrong?”My mum asked in alarm
“No. he replied, I just don’t know how to break the news
“What news?”. My mother asked, plea-se tell me
he looked and me and sighed
“About June pregnancy”. he replied…..
“What!!”. I exclaimed in shock, it can’t be, I am not pregnant
“plea-se be gentle with her”.The Doctor advised and left the room
“Who is responsible?”. My mom asked as soon as we were alone
“I am not pregnant mom”. I replied and she gave me a thun-derous [email protected]
Mom”. I called sobbing
“Who are you slee-ping with June?”. She yelled
“No one”.i lied
“Don’t lie to me June, is it Troy ?”
I stared at her without answering
Why have you chose to disgrace me and your father?”. She asked sobbing, Why?. I trusted you June that was why I supported your relationsh!pwith Troy but you forgot about the principle I taught you and opened your legs wi-de for him
“Mum”. I called softly
“Can’t you wait till he marries you?”. She asked
“I am sorry mom”
“ She looked at me with disgust and stood up. Get re-ady for your wedding, you are getting married to Troy………..
I bowed my head in shame as my parent hurled hurtful words at m
“How will I face the church?”.my Father asked in anger , I do preach about staying pure till marriage but my own daughter went against my teaching and even got pregnant. June why did you choose to embarras-s me?
“I am sorry dad”. I apologised sniffing
“Will sorry re-move the child in your wo-mb? Will sorry restore your vir-ginity?”. he yelled
“Calm down honey”. My mom advised , yelling won’t bring a solution..
“What solution?”my dad asked glaring at her, the only solution I am know is to abort the bastard in her wom
“Don’t ever call my child a bastard “. I warned, it has a father
“Really?”. My dad asked in disbelief,I can see you really have no sham
“If killing my child will make me shameless, I choose to be shameless “. I yelled standing u
“June”. my mother called in tears , plea-se sit let us look for a better solution
“What Solution Mother?”. I yelled , solution to kill my unborn chil
“plea-se sit “. My mum pleaded
“Fine”. I sighed sitting, What do you have to say
“honey. She called facing my dad, why can’t we let June get married to the father of her baby? . My mother suggested and my father [email protected]£ cal
“Do you think it is a good idea?”. he asked after clearing his throat
“It is the only way we can escape mockery”. My mom replied
I looked at both of them and sighed. They were after their reputations to the very end , they never really cared about my feelings…
I looked at my flat stomach and t©uçhed it
“Is there really a baby in here
“June. My dad called , go upstairs and freshen u
“Why?”. I asked, are we going somewhere
“Yes.he replied, To see Troy ..
“But dad I…….
“Do as I say young lady”. he instructed and I sighed before climbing up the stairs grumbling..
I pushed the door to the opened and met Mary on the be-d chatting probably with her Miguel
“How did it go?”. She asked looking at m
“I am confused “. I replied falling on the be-d, confused about everything
“Why?”. She aske
“I don’t know how Troy will react about the wedding
“What wedding?”. She asked in surprise…. wait a minute! you mean our parent want you both to get married
“Yes”. I drawled and they are planning on going to his place right now….
The drive to Troy ‘s house was a very quiet on
I sat down at the back seat with Mary beside m
I was worried about how everything will turn ou
“Will Troy agree to the wedding? How will he react when he sees my parent
I could have called to inform him but I totally lost it……
I felt Mary squee-zed my hands and I gave her a grateful smile..
We st©pped in front of his mansion and my mom [email protected] in shock when she saw two armed guards standing in front …
“Why do Troy have armed men guarding his gate?”. She asked
“for protec-tion “. My dad replied,
We alighted from the car and I led the way to the hvge gat
“Good evening”. I greeted the guard
“June. one of the called staring curiously at my family, who are they
“My parent and sister”. I replied smiling
“hope there is no problem?”. he asked
“Sure”. I replied, is Troy in
he nodded and opened the gate .we walked into the compound and I almost pee on my [email protected] when I saw few of Troy’s boys smoking ….
I stared at my parent to see their reaction, they looked dazed……I wondered what was going on throu-gh their min
“June. the boys called as we walked in and I smiled at them ..
I watched my mum and Troy mother hvg each other ti-ghtly
I almost forgot they were best friends
I looked around the sitting room and smiled when I saw Tricia standing beside the stairs staring curiously at the women
“Where is your husband to be?”. Mary asked tea-singly in whispers
“I don’t know”. I replied with a shru
“how are you Oscar”. Troy mom asked dis£ngaging from the hu
“Fine. My dad grunted frowning, where is Troy
“My daddy is in his room”. Tricia replied loudly
“What! Daddy?”.My father asked in shock ,do you mean Troy goes around impregnating different girl
“What do you mean by that Oscar?”. Troy mother asked
“June is carrying a child and your son is responsible”. My father yelle
“plea-se Calm down”. Troy mother pleaded that ….
“How do you expect me to be calm when my daughter is pregnant”. My father yelled
“Who is pregnant?”. Troy asked climbing down the stairs, he wore a transparent armless shi-t which made his tattoos visible..
“Daddy”. Tricia called waiting patiently for Troy to get to he
“What is it?”. Troy asked ruffling her hai
“that man is so scary”. She said pointing to my dad.
Troy bent down whispering something into her ear and she flashed me a smile before climbing up the stairs
“Who is pregnant?”. Troy asked staring at me
Your manners Troy”.his mother reminded
“oh my bad! he exclaimed, I forgot . hello Mr& Mrs Kansas
“how are you Troy?”. My mother greeted, Hope you are fine
“I am fine ma”. he as-sured taking a seat beside his mum . Who is pregnant?”.he repeated ,Is it June
“Yes. his mother replied and my heart skipped a bit when I heard Troy scoffed..
I stared at June and met her gaze. her eyes were dull, has she been crying
I was not surprised when I was told she was pregnant ,she was a novice after al
“Troy”. he dad called me and I turned to look at hi
“June is pregnant”. he repeated
“So?.i asked giving him a puzzled look, is that why you are all here
“We [email protected]£ to talk to you”. her mother replied calmly
“Alright, I am listening
“We want you to get married to June since you got her pregnant”.her mom informed and I sighed de-eply
“Is that what you want?”, I asked staring at he
“Ii ddddont ye”. She stammered
“did your parent impose it on you
“She is my daughter and I have right to make decision for her”. her dad barked
“So your decision is to get her married?”. I asked in surprise
“She has no choice”.he said sma-cking hisl-ips, it is either she gets married to you or abort the pregnancy
I looked at him and sm-irked. What a control freak
“ dad plea-se st©p”. June pleaded,plea-se sto
I watched her cry and my heart couldn’t take it
“Can’t we get married after she is done with school?”. I asked
“No way”. her father replied, Is it e……
“I will do it”.I replied cutting him off and I heard my mom sighed in relief , I will marry her because I love her and not because of the threat but I have a condition
“What condition?”.her dad asked
“ I want it to be a secret between both families”. I replied, no reporters, no friends only families
“Why?”. her parent chorused in shock
“I have my reasons”. I replied and they both gave me a puzzled loo
I never really wanted the wedding because I knew it might not be safe but seeing June in tears made me change my mind..
My parent kept on asking me silly questions about Troy on our way home and I grunted in response
They didn’t even allow Troy and I to talk pri-vately
“They are really impossible
I can’t believe I will be getting married this weekend, yes this weekend..
My parent finally accepted to the quiet& secret wedding after Troy agreed to do the wedding at the church..
i t©uçhed my belle and smiled
I really can’t wait to be Mrs Daniels……
Congratulations son”. My mom sai
“Yeah”. I drawled as I headed upstairs
I pushed the door to my room opened and [email protected] in shock when I saw Tricia with my gu
“What are you doing with that?”. I barked dragging it from he
“I want to [email protected] it”. She whined
“I don’t ever want to see you hold it again”. I warned
“No, I want to [email protected] it
“Why are you so stubborn?”. I asked carrying her to the be-d. Can’t you do as I say
“I just want to [email protected] it”. She whined bur-sting into tear
“Fine. I will get you a big teddybear”. I promised he
“I have got Lot of teddy bears”.She replied frowning
“Really?”. What do you want?”. I asked he
“A car”. She said smiling
“Are you kidding me
“No I am not”. She replied with her tiny voice , I want a big car
I stared at her in surprise
How will I handle a second child when the first is so stubborn
“I will buy you a car when you get older”. I as-sured he
“Is that a promise ?”. She asked frowning
“Yes baby”. I replied, will you love to go with me to the airport?”. I asked to make her happy…
“Yes. She screamed with excitement ….
I held Tricia hands as we headed downstairs
“Are you going somewhere?”. My mom asked
“Yeah”. I replied, to the airport ….
I carried Tricia placing her gently at the back seat before I got into the driver seat and drove off heading to the airport ….
“Daddy why are you going to the airport?”.
“To go pick Andy”. I replied
“Andy”. She called screaming in excitement, i really miss hi
“I am sure he miss you too
I parked in front of the airport and smiled when I saw Andy seated waiting patiently
I waved honking the horn to alert him and he looked up and smiled when he saw me
I watched him walk towards the car and smiled, he was perfectly okay and back to his feet
“Troy. he called as he opened the car door, it really been long
“how are you feeling?”.i asked him smiling
“Fine”.he replied sitting comfortably while I started the car and drove off …
I glanced back at Tricia and smiled, she was alre-ady asleep..
i explained everything to Andy on our way home
“Are you kidding me?”. he asked in surprise , you mean you will be getting married in two days
“Congrats man”. he greeted, but how did you convince her parent to accept the secret wedding
“I guess they just wanted to get rid of their pregnant daughter”. I replied with a shrug..
“Do you have any regret?”. he asked me
“My only regret is not meeting June earlier…….

“How many times will you look at it?”. Sara asked looking into her phone

“You have to look very beautiful June”. Mary said as she applied makeup on my face
“It is just a small wedding”. I reminded he
“It is still a wedding and you nee-d to look good for Troy
I stared at the mirror as she applied a redl-ipstick and frowned
“I prefer the pink one”.I said and she scoffed before cleaning it off..
The door to the room opened and my mom walked in wearing a long beautiful pink go-wn
“We are getting late”. She queried, we nee-d to get going
“We are almost done”. Mary informed as she helped me with my shoe
It was a black heeled shoe and I was wondered how I will walk with them
“Done “. She informed and I stood up staring at my full form in the mirror
“You look beautiful”. My mom replied wiping her tears
“Why is she crying?”. I wondered
“I am going to miss you June”. She said pu-lling me into a hu
“ I am not going away forever mom”. I pouted, i will always visit
She dis£ngaged from the hvg and ca-ressed my fac
“I am glad you are getting Married to Troy,I am sure he will take care of you….
We headed downstairs and my mom held my hands to prevent me from falling

“Are you all re-ady?”. he asked and we all nodde

I changed the gear and turning left to a bridge when I saw a car coming towards me with full speed
