[I know you won’t stay💝]
Akuna wiped her fake tears again and looked at her other princesses; Xara,shadia,Adaeze and two other that I don’t know their names.
Lotanna scoffed.”what’s this right now? is this who you are?” he asked.
he looked so surprised and confused
akuna got more speechless.
“baby,I can’t explain…listen..I…lotan she is nothing but a trouble maker she disrespected me” Akuna lied.
Ngozi g@sped from where she stood with Ebere.
“my prince…..” ngo wanted to speak.
“would you shut up.don’t you have respect for the royals,we are talking you want to talk” Akuna shot ngozi a deadly glare.
I hastily stood up from where i was kneeling.
Lotanna got more shocked when he saw a tear rolling down my eyes.
Jesus,was I crying? I wiped it hurriedly.
Akuna rushed to him and tried touching him. “Lotanna,I didn’t do anything wrong am just correcting…”
she came back to where I stood and tried touching me on my shoulders.
“Adeife tell him am not wrong,I was correcting you” she said.
I already wiped my tears out completely,I smiled out.Am not doing this because of Akuna,I will just do this for the sake of her relationship.
Ngozi shot me a glare to say the real thing likewise Ebere.
I smiled again.”umm sir,I hope you forgive me for getting into another trouble” I said and shifted away from princess Akuna.
Lotanna rolled his eyeballs.
“so you are this s£nseless”lotanna asked me.
He dragged me out of where Akuna stood and kept me at his right hand.
Akuna swallowed into nothing forcefully, her fellow princess watched in amusement, they looked down avoiding lotanna’s gaze.
is it because of his handsomeness?
or did they realize how shameless they have been?
lotanna just watched them in surprise most especially Akuna…
“my prince,she always do it..
she always maltreat Ife for no reason, she gave her that mark on her shoulders” ngozi said from where she stood.
I opened my mouth and tried covering the mark but he saw it already.
He got more shocked.
“Akuna I don’t understand what am seeing and what I just witnessed earlier….have you suddenly lost it?” he asked.
“obim(heartbeat), I didn’t….
“but back then when we were younger you weren’t a bully.You were either wiping the poors tears and you always sympathize with any bully victim. .I couldn’t even believe you’ve graduated with a degree in being so fv¢king fake” he said.
“Lotanna,don’t think it that way,
Just wait,I can explain” she said.
“Now,I think i understand it all.
You broke her pot and cut her bead that day at the stream,even that day at the kitchen it was all you…I found it h@rd to believe until that day in the yacht when she fell into the ocean…
It was you who push her but yet you still switched everything on her and blamed her instantly” lotanna said.
“lotanna she didn’t” Xara wanted to defend Akuna,
lotanna raised his hand and signalled her to remain silent.
He just look at Akuna in surprise.
“Akuna I regret that our families are close friends…
gosh what my mother fell is a lie,
what else was a lie with us huhn..
why are you souless??? he said.
“so they are not even dating,chai see lie…Akuna your father left yansh there” ngozi mocked.
Akuna turned and ran away.
I got myself the moment she was out of sight with her fellow crews.
I faced Lotanna who was still holding me,he wanted to say something but I stopped him.
“people are watching” I said.
“remind me to flog you when we are alone” he said and left me.
Gosh,that was a narrow escape.
I left and went to where ngozi and Ebere were standing.
“so after all Akuna isn’t in a relationship with any of our prince and yet she always control us like the world is in her feet…
well it is a good thing I witnessed this,I swear I won’t respect her from today….
if she wants to control anybody,let her do that in her kingdom”
Ebere laughed,I shook my head and followed them to the maids quarter.
I stood in the lovers spot and soon Akuna approached with her servants.
I got confused when I didn’t see Ife with her,the plan was to get her here and deal with her.
“you should see the way lotanna insulted me in the front of that tramp. It’s hightime I stop pitying Ife” she said….
I laughed.”someone that you ought fi eliminate since.The only thing am worried about is the royal feast that would take place next tomorrow since that’s when prince Jedinna will return….
the royal feast will be a huge one which means more princes” I said.
“and I think her v!rg!nity is the same thing that is drawing handsome guys to her…what if we make her look like us….it costs Nkem nothing to take it away or better still Arinze” she said.
“hmmm good idea,I think Arinze will be better,Nkem and lotanna are on good terms he might not want to do it…. I trust Arinze,he will do it without much stress” I said.
“but please be careful,I don’t want the queen to see me as a bad egg,she always thinks positive of me” Akuna said as we walked on.
finally I escorted her and turned back….. I just wish the spell didn’t go on her.
I got to the stream where I met Arinze swimming.He really love water.
I smiled seductively and retied my very short wrapper in a more tempting way….he got more interested as he clicked his l!ps..
I sat slowly and started throwing stones in the stream while giving him an inviting stare.
“olamma,I still don’t understand why you broke up with me…..
I was good and faithful to you and I always meet your demands” he said with a pained expression.
“well,am back to warm up your cold bed,you know it’s very bad for a woman to make the first attempt”
He swam out of the stream,I stood up and look around, no one was coming.
“if you don’t make the first attempt, how will I know how skillful you are” he says,I pressed my f!ng£rs on his chest and watched as the water drio down his well built chest.
He is really a handsome man….and of course from a wealthy background just that he got do unserious with alcohol.
He carried me up and took me deep in the bush…
I hastily remove my wrapper and laid it on the floor,he grabbed my butts roughly and started klzzing me so roughly…
slowly he got his f!ng£rs trapped into my V and felt my opening.
I opened my legs wider and shut my eyes in a slow m0@n.He came up to my n!pp!es and ate me so deeply,he took his d!¢k in and moved in and out of me in a fast speed…
we m0@n in a rymth.
He took in my n!pp!es in again and positioned me in another manner, his d!¢k was still trapped in, I couldn’t believe I took in his full size…
his d!¢k was the big type.
I got wild with desires as he slap his d!¢k against my pvzzy…
“aaahhhh arinze!!!!! I m0@ned.
he then slide it up and down my pvzzy…
I throw my head backwards in sweetness as he slowly deep fv¢ked me while rubbing my cl!t….
I was too weak to push him away.
“Arinze sssssss ahhhh” I m0@ned loudly like crazily.
It was my turn to stay on top.. I did and fix his d!¢k in,I adjust to his size and rode him so damb h@rd.
I stopped and laid on him then in the bush.
“we should do this some other time” he said..
I breathed out. “only if you do what I say” I said.
I was done with my evening duties and I returned to the maids quarter to meet Ngozi since she said we should take the paper to “old Nana”.
We were about going when Ebere said she wants to follow us to were we are going.
hmmm this is a secret person,we don’t want a third party.
“that reminds me” Ebere brought out the jedioku prince topic..
we couldn’t just go again as we talked and talked and talked.
“Ife maybe next time” ngozi said and left…I sighed and stayed back.
I actually stayed in till it was night.
finally, it was time to sleep,Ebere slept on my bed..
I was about sleeping when someone knocked at the door,I went to answer it since I was the only one awake.
I opened the door,it turned out to be princess Amarachi- Lotanna and Jedinna’s younger brother.
by this time⏰⏰⏰ I bowed.
“aunty Ife where have you been, have been searching for you” she said.
I got confused.
wait,am I even hearing well.
Anyways am older than her,she is fifteen while am just 20.
“my princess what can I do for you” I asked.
“my brother said I should give you this” she said and handed me a paper.I looked back, thank goodness they all slept.
I opened the paper.
“but my princess,I can’t read” I said.
“hmm okay,I will read it for you”
she pouted beautifully and look into the paper..
“aunty,according to what is in this paper,he said you should meet him at Akili road….he wants to take you along in his two days traveling to Banana island” amarachi said.
I smiled out tears and looked at the tatoo he drew on my palms.
“aunty what’s the secret to your beauty?” I heard her ask.
“hunnn!! did you say something”
“my brother loves you” she said.
I smiled, what does this little girl knows about love.
“isn’t the palace gate locked” I asked.
“I already get the key through Nkem” she said smartly.
I stayed quiet.
“aunty do you still want to go,my brother is waiting?” she asked.
“won’t my abs£nse cause suspicion?” I asked.
“Mrs okafor travelled this night and would return also in the next two days,I will tell them you traveled with her” Amarachi said.
“okay am ready but please help me read this last paper” I brought out the first paper he gave me,that we want old nana to help us with.
she opened the paper.
“Be my royalty and I will be your crown together” she reads.
aaaaaw😍 so sweet,so he actually ask me out….
I followed Amarachi out,we got to the back door,I collected the key from her and opened it.
I stepped out,not quiet Kong I heard the queens voice from upstairs.
“Amarachi what’s happening there?” I heard her voice.
I got scared.
“Aunty Ife please run,nothing must happen to my brother” she whispered since I was already out.
“okay thank you” I replied.
“Amarachi,I said whats happening there?” I heard the queens voice.
“maaa….” she answered and raised the paper up.
“nothing is happening,am searching for network” she replied.
“network in a paper,bring the paper let me see it” the queen said.
“Aaaaah,I swallowed it” Amarachi replied and threw the paper in her mouth…
I smiled as i ran
I looked at dubem,my little brother who doesn’t know we ain’t blood.
“ngozi” he tapped me,
I rolled on my bed and fake sleep.
“ngozi” he tapped me again,
I shrugged in sleep.
“ogini kwa nu(what is it)” I said.
“ngozi mummy said you should come and wash my bombom I just poopoo” four years old dubem said.
“aaah ahhh can’t you see am sleeping” I retorts.
“mummy said you should also change my cloths” he added.
“can’t you call me aunty hunn?”
I said and twisted his ears,dubem has no respect.
“Aiiiiiiissssss my ears” he screamed.
“dubem! dubem! mama shouted from the kitchen,I hastily left his ears.
“mama insect entered his ears that’s why he is screaming” I said and carried him to the backyard where I watched his buttocks.
I washed my hands and his own,
we went back inside..
Our food was ready,dubem rushed to it and opened it-
the aroma of the @ssorted ogbono filled our room.
“etiquette” I said.
he washed his hands again and we started eating in silence.
I shared the meat and purposely make one bigger than the other.The bigger one has lots of bone.
“I want the bigger one” he says.
I smiled and push it to him while I through the one with lots of flesh into my mouth.
“eeeh what’s this?” he asked.
“aunty there’s no meat here” he said with a pitiful expression.
“you said you want the big one” I said and washed my hands.
I carried a low stool and sat in our compound to receive fresh air.
Dubem joined me afterwards.I knew he wanted something the moment he come on my laps.
“as from today,I will call you aunty” he said.
“you’re a trouble maker, just tell me what you want” I said.
he wrapped his hands around me.
“folktales please” he said.
“the title of my story is “The lost beauty” I said.
“hmmm sounds interesting” he clapped his hands ryhmtically.
“once upon a time,there lived a girl named Ifedimma.She lives with her wicked stepmother who make her works all day and eat like an ant”
I checked dubem,he already slept.
I smiled and took him in,I made sure he slept well.That was when I realized I haven’t deliver the new stock to mama mmesoma.
I packed the clothes for sale and rushed to her house.
Mama mmesoma is onome’s close friend abs both are known as the best best gossip partner as their house isn’t far from each other.
I got to her house not quiet long and knocked on the door,she answered it few seconds later.
“good evening nne” I greeted.
“welcome..but why this time” she asked.
“I forgot” I replied and bite my nails in a forgetful manner.
I pres£nted the cloth, she brought out lantern and examine it.
“#4,000 ma’am” I said.
“you’ve started again,I used to buy it #3,500″she bargained.
“aaaah mama this one is not like those rags other trader well, my mother traveled for two days to a far away kingdom just to get this stock brands” I said.
“do you even heard what happened?” she asked me.
“mama please pay me and let me go, it’s night already” I said.
this woman can gossip for Africa,
no wonder onome chose her ad best friend.
she paid me,I counted the money and left.I ran since it was night,
and I mistakenly jammed olamma.
“You daft,do you have loads on your eyes?” she flared up.
“and do you have problems with sight” I retorts.
“if fire is burning you,you better use it to burn the floor” she hissed and walk away.
na your family fire go burn”
I said and bent to pick my key,I saw a little bottle on the floor.
seriously,this must have fallen from olamma.I picked it up and stopped at where there was light.
I opened the bottle and smelt it,
the pungent and choking smell was as strong as hell.
this is bekwe poison!!! I hastily covered the bottle.
“what’s olamma doing with this… this is poison is deadly for those who have the sickness of fearing cold but for common people,it is nothing.
what can she be doing with it??
I ran home.
I made sure everyone slept,
and I brought out the black calabash I kept under my bed,the giant queen in the world of the immortal appeared.
she turned her back against me which is very unusual.
smokes emanates from the pot,I hastily covered it.
I opened it again.
🚺 the one who enslaves the land with war…
🚺 the great one who wear fansy p@nts to war to destroy thousands.
🚺 you carry we your children on your back to the war font….
🚺 chaos and war is nothing but a playful thing for you ..
🚺 the strongest rock who wouldn’t take insults with ease!
her image disappeared on the pot surface..I got scared.
teeth are gone,laughter now becomes a difficult thing in my house
I covered my mouth and ran out.
I got to her grave and stood still,
soon I started clapping ryhmtically..
The floor started shaking with heavy sounds, I started seeing double.
and the shaking floor was replaced with smokes as my great grandmother appeared with visible furry in her eyes that already got blood shot,in her hand was an arrow.
“my one and only supporter”
“the one who never fails”
I breathed out.
“isn’t it time to fulfill your promise..
look the third moon just elapse” she said,fire gush out.
“am trying my best mma” I said.
“your best isn’t enough” she cuts in rashly.
“I can’t hold this ugliness anymore” she added.
“ma’am hold it for a while” I said.
“then I want something in return” she said.
“anything,I shall give it to you” I said.
“Adeife’s voice!! once you shoot her with this arrow,it would be trapped”
“but you said her voice can never be seized again” I said.
“what I see you can’t” she said.
I took the bow and arrow and went back,I ran. But I stopped when I sighted Ife running and p@ssing through shortcuts.
Aaaaaahhh isn’t my creator good?.
“Adeife” I called.
“ma’am” she answered and stopped running,she turned and froze when she saw me.
“what did I tell you about BELIEVE-
you don’t need to believe for you’re hopeless,now come to me” I said.
“no mama,I don’t want to come”
she shook her head and started running.
I ran after her as I set the arrow.
“you can’t run for long” I said and set the arrow..I set target on her leg,
she missed it.
I fired two together,it was almost meeting her but the two arrow intersect and drop on the floor.
“hmmm this is getting more tougher”
the giant queen spirit appeared.There was a candle in her hand, she dropped it and she took the bow and arrow and wanted to do it herself, someone dragged Ife.
He turned and gosh…. his sight was like the most handsome creature have ever seen,
he had tiny diamond earring on his ears….I couldn’t see his full face as he didn’t turn well.
only his diamond earring and bracelet glittered.
The light on the candle went off, the priestess suddenly got weak and disappeared.
what can be happening?
“Babe have been waiting since!
I heard his voice as he took Ife by his right hand.
what a golden voice, I might as well stay here to listen all days long.
but who is he????
he looks so rich and extensive for someone of his age.
“umm arrow,let’s leave here quickly”
I heard Ife saying… I couldn’t see so clearly cos it was night…next I saw the two hugging.
I fix in another arrow and set it on the unknown guy.
“who are you?” I shouted.
” until one day,I don’t need to humble myself in front of you” he replied.
