[you’re my heart’s crown👑]
I watched Ife run to my back to hide.
why do i feel like bringing her out of her hideout,I really do not like this habit of hiding.
I turned,she still moved back.
“sir stay well, let me hide” she said,
she already dropped the incense in the rightful place.
“sir I want to hide” she pouted.
gosh, the shape of her lips is beautiful.
“someone is really coming and I pray it is not your mother” she said.
I rolled my eyeballs.
“I will stay well if you stop calling me sir” I said.
“oh sir,turn let me hide” she said in a hurry.
“you! I point out.
“hunn,I wasn’t saying sir to you,
I was saying it to myself” she smiled.
“You will explain to me in my room if sir goes for a female”
I said and turned,
I don’t want to loose my girlfriend again God please. But all of a sudden being with this pretty maid makes me so happy.
I feel like this is the feeling of being with the rightful person.
I might not forgive myself if she ends up like others.
aaaah why did I let her come close to me…why did i get weak for ife?
am a fool to love… am stupidly doing it again.
falling in love,I pray this will be my last.
I turned in full surprise,
the person that came in turn out to be Akuna,
she doesn’t look like someone who is unhealthy.
why do women lie so much
why the fakeness.
I watched her look at incense staff,
it’s obvious she isn’t a virgin,
more reasons why ife’s shyness brings a spark to my life.
it makes me happy.
I wonder why.
she stared at the incense,
I rolled my eyeballs;funny right?.
I made sure Ife came out of her hideout.
“Lotanna are you really seeing this girl?”,she asked..
“who knows?…love is too serious” I replied and took Ife’s hand.
“if you’re doing this to make me jealous,stop this and tell me my mistakes” she said.
she ran to my presence,
I don’t know what she did that made Ife shift back.
“umm I will give you privacy” Ife said humbly and even bowed to Akuna.
“are you really stupid?” I asked.
“hunn! she said and came back to me.I held her hand and walk out with her.
she kept on smiling.
“let’s see at night” I said and left her.
she nodded and rushed out.
I never really agreed that any girl is beautiful but Ife is.
a guard came immediately she left.
“my prince,the feast has started” he said.
“okay” I added.
soon I was in the feast,I had to wear the crown.And I really can’t wait to take it off.
There were many people there,
in fact the golden hall was crowded.
mother really paid personal attention to this feast,
soon she passed in her beautiful queen garment.
*someone just dropped the incense in the inner room-
I got so worried earlier thinking there won’t be prayers..”
I heard her saying.
“Lotanna who dropped the incense? a virgin right?….Jedinna asked.
“so there’s still a grown up virgin in this days.. who knows how long she has been keeping herself” he said.
“be careful here.You can’t be with many women,this is not the states”
I replied him.
“hey hi,am prince iyke”
a young guy came to me and stretched out his hands for a shake.
Jedinna took it.
He sat but his attention was on me.
two maids rushed to his side.
“sir what should i offer you?”
they bowed while asking perfunctorily.
“wine..not palm wine” Iyke said.
he smiled and faced me.
“you didn’t tell me your name” he said..
“he is Lotanna,am jedinna” jedinna said.
his wine was brought,
one of the maids served him,he sipped in slowly.
“there are so many sexy ladies here”
“need one to make your bed warm in this cold” Iyke said as they stared at two particular princesses.
wait,what did she tell her friends? hope she didn’t lie about us.
🚺oh my god,Akuna you’re lucky!!!!
🚺 you will become a queen soon!
“did you see that girl.
“see her wire waist…
“jeex her yansh..
I heard things from iyke and Jedinna.
“did you see her–
*jeeex am approaching her-
it was getting too much,
as full attention were on Jedinna and i,they must be finding it difficult to tell who is who.
“you’re noisy” I said,
jedinna still continued talking about the big yansh whatever.
does he have sense at all?
how many women does he wants to be with?.
my phone rang…so many calls.
“I was..I couldn’t make it
“send them again,
“my PA will attend to it
I ended the call..
Next I searched around to see if Ife is the one Jedinna and Iyke are contemplating on.
🚺 one night with her what will i give
🚺 60silver coins.
I don’t know who they are taking about,I sighed and took my gold laided phone.
Two girls screamed,some came close to check..
isn’t this the height of their ignorance?….
I stood up and left the place,not like am interested in being a king.
I got to the prince empire,
“obim” I heard my mother.
“noo am not leaving,I want to contact my manager” I said.
she moved closer and hugged me.
“someone dropped the incense staff, may the gods bless her for me”
I smiled and nodded.
“you still owe me two wishes” I said.
“sure” she said and removed the tiny bead she dropped in my hair,
she fixed in a new one.
“is this the tradition?” I asked.
“I pray you won’t dir in the future, the throne belongs to–
“waaaaaat!! I said.
she smiled.”you worry too much”.
💌 I don’t want to see Ife in the feast, make her stay in her room” I quickly texts the maid coordinator.
“is it business?”mother asked.
“oh yes”I replied and quickly took it away.
“do you know the owner of these beads?”she asked and showed that IFE’s waist bead that tangled with mine.
“oh no” I said..
“what are the beads doing together, have been trying to untangle it for a long time now…
the name reads Ife-
is it Ifeoma,
Ifedioku or what?” she said.
“what about Adeife?” I said smartly..
“is that girl still in this palace! I told tracy not to give that badluck any space here-even her father disowned her cos she’s up for no good” she said….
Is this how much she hates her..
“she’s an abomination to this kingdom~~and a spirit.” she said.
“it’s okay,I don’t even know who you’re talking about” I said.
pain scares me a lot.
she still tried separating the beads.
“it might cut,why not let it be” I said.
she didn’t listen,
I couldn’t hold it anymore,
I left to my suite.
Lotanna really broke Akuna,
she got crazy tears in her eyes since.
“I can’t believe Adeife took the incense and Lotanna was actually with her” Akuna saud..
“it was anger,you know how he gets”
“God I can’t believe he is getting close to that stupid dirty slave called Ife…he even opened his door for her, do you think he likes her” Akuna said.
“no he can’t…come on
what are you saying..Ife! Ife the nobody,who doesn’t know her history Akuna calm down” I said.
Just then Olamm walked in.
“Akuna you were so bothered,Lotan didn’t ask Ife to take the incense, tracy sent her there and asked Lotanna to follow her.He had no choice than to accept you know he doesn’t say know to Tracy” Adaeze said.
“and am I sure nothing happened… he will surely leave her hand once you’re not there,they can’t even stay in the same room.
she is not quarter of Lotanna’s taste, that’s how low she is” I said.
“hmm Arinze is here! olamma said.
Akuna smiled a bit.
“whattttt! Adaeze said.
Akuna glared at her.
“ummm I don’t like Ife that much but tell Arinze not to go too far” Ada said.
“I know Lotanna can never actually stoop so low to touch Ife not ri talk of liking her…I was so bothered cos I thought they were secretly dating.
I felt so bad amarachi callef her “aunty”. She always respect that dirty commoner” Akuna said.
“well you know she is a maid,the queen sees her as abomination,
stop being so bothered and think of a way to get him to yourself” I said.
Olamma are you sure Arinze will do a good work” she asked.
we all laughed.
The maid coordinator came and asked me to go back to my room for no reasons.
I washed my hand in the kitchen,
Ebere smiled and gave me a basket to drop on her bed.
“but madam why do you want me to go back to my room,am fine i can work” I said.
“you need rest,you have tried since morning” she said.
I took Ebere’s basket and went out if the kitchen.
I got downstairs,there were still lots of guests. I made my way out,
I haven’t even seen Nkem since morning…
I walked and decided to pass the garden which is the fastest way to get to the maids quarter..
I saw prince Jediokwu and I quickly look away.
Good thing he didn’t see me.
I better run out of here..
I ran and bumped into Arinze, the drink in the basket Where gave me spilled on him.
“sorry” I said..
“Ife!! someone called.I turned and it was Vicky .
“hi” I said and walked away from Arinze’s presence..
he came to me again.
“You’re Ife….what’s your full name?”
[you’re my heart’s crown👑]
i gwaked at Arinze,
he doesn’t recognize me as the ugly Adeife and ngozi’s friend.I know he might be confused.
“you’re Ife right?” he asked.
“yes,any problem” I said.
“what’s your full name?” he asked with full attention.
“are you olamma’s step sister”.
he added,he didn’t allow me to answer the first question.
“yes am olamma’s step sister; Adeife” I said.
“Ife what are you still doing there”
“excuse me,I have somewhere am going” I said to Arinze who was staring like a lost sheep.
what business does he have with me???.
I went to Vicky and we both headed back to the maids quarter where i dropped ebere’s basket.
that pretty girl is Ife;
must be the Ife at the party. gosh and have been searching for her for so long. She’s around me and I didn’t know.
I still turned to look at her,
she has already left.
why would olamma wants me to do such terrible thing to someone as pretty as that,did they fight?.
“you saw her,that’s her” olamma tapped my back.
I turned in full surprise.
“you promise to like what i like and destroy what I hate” she said.
“why are you planning on taking that girl out” I said.
she rolled her eyeballs.
“am not planning of taking her out, I don’t mean killing,I just want you to teach her a lesson and the only lesson that will remain a scar in her heart is her virginity”,
“did she offend you?” I asked.
Olamma kept quiet for a while.
I folded my arms.
“I won’t be able to answer any further questions.Remember I already paid you with one round of doggy yesterday night which you enjoyed in the cold weather” she said.
I smiled as i remember the hot sex scenes. Olamma smiled and handed me a small bottle that was wrapped with a cloth.
“what’s this?” I asked.
“it’s bekwe poison,I misplace the first bottle and have to save to get another one….” she said..
“it is very deadly for people that have cold but normal for people that doesn’t have cold.I just want you to pour little in IFE’s mouth after she must have get deflowered” she says.
“why not let’s seal it another two more rounds” I said..
“okay but is it now,I mean now”.
she stopped talking as nkem approached,
“you came” nkem said.
“who wouldn’t come?” I replied and followed him into the hall.
“what were you discussing with Olamma?”he asked.
“umm nothing serious” I replied..
we entered into the golden hall fully,.the place is full of life.
The rites and music made me feel cool,this is more than a feast to me.
I must say the two crowned prince are lucky and i envy them…
“so who will be the next king and till until when will the throne be empty”
“everyone knows Lotanna is the rightful owner of the throne….
mother is just being careful enough so there won’t be any fight between her two sons” nkem said.
I poured myself a wine,
a maid dished out a steaming antelope stew sauce for nkem and I.
it was brought in separately.
must be cooked separately as well.
the aroma alone was enticing.
“where’s she?”nkem asked the maid.
the maid bowed.
“sir the maid coordinator asked her not to come out of her room” the maid replied.
nkem signalled,she left.
“can you tell the person that made this to cook more,it’s delicious” I pouted..
*It’s Ife and she has been asked to stay indoors” he said.
“is it Adeife?” I asked..
“you know her name already.If you have an eye on her,you had better take it away” nkem said.
“why??” I said.
“just take your eyes off her” he said.
whatever,I will just use chioma to get her out this night.
finally the feast was over but some where still in the golden hall according to what Ebere said.Guess I missed so much fun because the maids coordinator won’t just allow me to be.
“today is my best nights*.
chioma says as she shakes her button vigorously. Hi ome on+233544142683 to be added to story headquarters room for more stories.
I stood up and went to bath after which I changed into a simple sleeping nightie.
I layed on the bed.
Lotanna said I should come this night,hope i won’t disappoint you tonight.
can I still make it to your room this night??.
I mean when my co maids are still awake,they will suspect me.
my phone rang,
it didn’t ring out since it’s always on silent.
I covered my self with the duvet and picked the call.
💌 baby” he said.
💌 honey,I don’t think i will come oo, the girls are still awake” I said..
💌 but are you fine” he said.
💌 you… are you fine” I asked lowly.
💌 I will only be fine if you can sing in my ears” he said so sweetly.
I quickly end the call when I felt someone come to my bed,I turned it was ebere and I shifted for her to sleep.
“hey your nightie is fine” she says..
“hmmm thank you” I said.
“you’re trying” she whispered.
“and lucky too” she whispered.
“why?” I said.
“I know you and Lotanna are secretly dating” she whispered.
I quickly turn to her.
“and he likes you,I always see the way he stares at you secretly”,
“I understand,I won’t tell anyone”
she said lowly.
chioma came in again.
“Adeife would you mind following me to the stream side,Mrs okafor sent me message” chioma said.
I shook my head.
“please i won’t take long”
“what do you want to go and do in the stream side?”I asked.
“ummm…she….I…she asked me to get her fresh scent leaves”
“there is scent leave plant in the palace” I said.
“or are they not fresh enough” I added.
she scratched her neck
then a guard came in.
“Adeife,someone is looking for you outside” the guard said..
“who,am not expecting anybody”
“your step mother,I guess she have something important to tell you”
the guard said.
“for what! I said in fear as I followed him out.I remembered my dead mother again, I couldn’t help my eyes.
I followed the guard,
he left me alone to onome who was in the palace compound.
“good evening mama”..
I greeted with my lashes bashed.
“same here,my dear” she replied.
wait “my dear”.
is my ears really working.
“pack your things,am here to pick you.I already paid the money back to Tracy”she said.
something cut in my intestine,
my tears came in full.
“I don’t want to go….
“oya die here now,go and get your things fast” she said.
I wiped my tears.
“okay mama I will pack my things but I will first go and ask aunty Tracy”.
“are you calling me a liar?
“can’t you see I just paid and besides this is the change I collected” she showed me a little sac of money.
my words still come out with tears.
I went on my kneels instantly.
“mama you can do this to me!!!
I started crying.
Just then the queen approached.
aaaah isn’t this the end for me.
“may you live long your highness” onome said.
the queen smiled.
“what’s the matter?” she asked..
and onome got happy.
I cried silently.
mother why did you leave me😭😭
“thank you my queen, I only came here to pick Adeife my late senior wife sister,I still don’t understand the reason why she choose to run away from home for the past months.Can you kindly tell her to pack her things and follow me” onome said.
“I don’t want to go!!!
I started crying..
The queen looked in my side…
“Go and pack your things” onome said…
I knelt down, my tears flowed freely.
“my queen don’t let me go please–
I started crying again..
“I said go and pack your things!
“no my queen—
I cried and wanted to touch her legs.
wait was i high??.
now,she’s my last hope!
I know she will tell me to follow Onome and if I should i won’t live for my mother😭😭😭😭
what eyes will I use to see her?
what hand will I use to touch her?..
“my queen i know am not perfect enough for you…
but please don’t let me follow her!
I said but it still came out with tears.
someone called,I don’t know who it is but it doesn’t sound like Lotanna.
“mother……” another voice which I recognize as Lotanna said.
