[the girl he never noticed💦]
one of them held her,it was Nkem who hold her hand.
“did you make her cry?”, he asks…
she hijacked her hands.
then she faced Lotanna…
“how was your journey?”, she asked.
I didn’t even bother to look into any of their faces,I looked down so as to prevent my ugly face from facing them.
There was silence,like an angel passed.
“ummm we were…gisting”,
Akuna started and tried to touch Lotanna, she was unlucky her hand didn’t reach him.
“who asked for what you’re doing?”,
Lotanna shut her out in an icy manner….
he moved,Akuna shifted so he will pass,I turn to look at him.
did anything happen between him and Akuna???
I thought they were future couples like the queen always says.
Akuna scoffed and left,
the girls followed her,Jidenna followed the same direction his brother took.
only nkem and I was left.
I wipe my tears wordlessly and faced Nkem with a smile.
“sir,thank you for speaking for me”
he came closer and stretched forth his hands,he is fond of holding me.
I smiled as I fit my hand in.
“did Akuna give you this cut?”,
he asked as he examine my hand.
“no,my step mother.She gave me because I didn’t listen to her” I said, he still touched my cheek and wipe out my tears till it dry completely.
“do you sing?”, he asked.
“not anymore, I can’t sing properly again,it’s been long I sang out” I said.
“can you do it now?”, he asked.
“I believe I can’t” I said.
there was silence between us.
I just got uncomfortable staying alone with him.I got scared as I remembered the old man that wanted to shift my panties,
such a painful experience.
“sir,I need to go” I said.
“let’s go together” he said.
we walk back to the palace holding hands together.we left each other when we entered the palace.
I remembered my bead,
the one akuna cut out of wickedness, if I gather it,I can make another one with a new rope!.
I ran back to the stream and started picking the beads,after which I tied it in a nylon.
I passed the waterfall side quietly,I make sure I was covered with the flowers,I will have to stop seeing Lotanna for now,it seems am really causing trouble between him and Akuna…
I was tempted to open the flowers to see him as I passed.I got crazy to see his face again as I remembered his song *it’s shining to remind you*
I didn’t even know when I opened the flowers to peep.
“Lotanna isn’t it time to leave?”,
his twins brother asked.
he didn’t even turn to look at him.
“move, I didn’t force you in the first instance.It’s because of you she didn’t come, she never misses a day without seeing me” Lotanna said.
I smiled out tears as I got happy.
he had a she~~
but I thought him and Akuna are together.
“fine,I will go but the feast,don’t forget it.Mother might go crazy without you” jidenna said.
“you always look for my trouble, what feast again??? did I tell you am interested in being a king”.
Jidenna sighed and left.
Its really true that people who look alike always have similar attitude..
Lotanna stood staring at the waterfall,I stayed well so I would see his face one last time.
Yes,I was satisfied by just catching the sight of his prominent and sharp brows.
The royal straight bead that was fit deep in his hair made it looks like heaven is opened to rain.
I really wish I know who he is waiting for, I would have help to tell the person that he is waiting.As it stands, he is always happy seeing her…..I pray you guys last long.
it’s Far better than Akuna.
“my friend, do you know her name,let me help you find her” I said in my heart,he turned back,I covered the flowers and bend in a smile..
Just wait,I will help you locate her.

he sang out the same song in my mind..
Are we thinking same thing?

🎼 that I love you
🎼 As each new day begins
🎼 I love u,believe and just let me in.
🎼be with me,do not go

🎼 stay,do not go,
🎼 one day,let’s meet.
🎼 I promise u the riches of the world
🎼 I promise u,till death will part.
it was so sweet hearing pleasant voices of his.I felt lots of sweetness.
“faith,why do you keep treating me like this? what exactly do you have in store for me! First it was Vanessa, Lenora,Mitchell, Angelina….I dated them,they all died and now Akuna!
what if I agree to my mom and date her,she will die too right?.
till when will I wait for my forevermore?”. I heard him muttered.
I felt his tears,
a tear dropped from mine too,I quickly wiped it.
he brought out two shining green nylon,he tore out one and threw it in his mouth.He chewed it and three the other one away.
it dropped exactly where I was staying…
I pressed it,something was there.I tore it out,it was the thing he usually chew.
my longer throat…. chai
I put it in my mouth,it was so sweet as I chewed in slowly like he used to do.
ohh he has gone through a lot,I better leave.I covered the flowers and left.
it’s painful all his girlfriends in the past always die.
I remembered the part I added to the lines of his songs but I can’t sing it.
Not now that onome is alive!.
I rush back to the palace,
everywhere was glittering already, the feast..
Dumebi handed me a can to watered the flowers pots along the golden hall.I started.
I stopped to water a pot at a particular spot.
“so between my two sons, who will make a better king?”, I heard the queens voice.
“eyes of the gods please I need a sincere answer” I heard the queens voice.
soon,the preist voice came up in whispers.
“both are fit for a king,
Lotanna’s reign will be the most everlasting and memorable.New and profitable things will happen to this kingdom,in fact it will be so much upgraded cos other kingdoms will come to bow for him and a verrrrrrrryyy stunning thing that will happen to him in the future.
Jidenna’s reign will be the worst, for he is a brutal king,his reign will be so unbearable ……
I stopped hearing and moved away.
the feast started.
hmmm no wonder the queen usually treat him with so much care, this fear happens every week.
more people filled in,Lotanna wasn’t still here.
I got worried for no reason.
“hi,you were the one that brought me fruits” Tracy approached me.
“hello” amarachi came behind her.
both were dressed in stunning outfits.Stuck in their neck is royalty necklace,same with Lotanna.
“the,cream you saw it right? make sure you use it,your marks will soon go” Tracy said.
“thanks for your kindness” I bowed in respect.
They went to find a seat in the crowded hall, I engaged my self in something,my eyes still search for Lotanna,isn’t he suppose to be here?
I saw the queen getting worried as she moved from one place to the other,Jidenna followed her.
is eyes was red,pure red and even purple!.
“where’s my brother?”, I heard him shout at the guards.
his shout can burn a mountain.
everyone got confused as they turned…
without been told they stood up,
I can’t believe Akuna,it was that moment she threw a meat into her mouth..
she also stood up!.
are they looking for Lotanna???
“emergency please!!! where’s prince Lotanna” Tracy said with so much care…
“my brother where is he???…..
Amarachi also said.
I passed the back door and ran to the waterfall,there I saw him in laying,his eyes where shut.
he was even bleeding from the head.
there was a stick behind there, stained with blood..
was he hit!!!!
my prince” I said as I placed my head on his chest.I was so afraid to touch him,soo pure.
“my prince” I said as I used my finger tips to move his royal bead so that blood won’t stain it.
I pick up his royal bead totally.
“My prince! I said and held his hand,
I innocently got stained with his blood.
[the girl he never noticed💦]
I got scared as my hand touched his blood; too bad I had placed that same hand on him,
my five fingers stained and showed on Hus white top.
I couldn’t touch him anymore,
what if I infect him with my skin, he his so pure to be touched by me and we are two different world’s,two different lives,I thought.
ADEIFE are you okay?.
my subconsciousness hit me,
I hastily stood up and get water from the waterfall,I sprinkled it on him.
his fingers moved and he strained his eyes like he couldn’t see well.
I did not even know I was in tears. If only I had known this would happen, I would have stayed in my hideout and continue watching him since I promise to be a secret helper to him even though he never noticed me,
even though he said we should never see,we should never meet.
I believe it’s my destiny.
I already accept it like that, it’s the cross I have to bear.
not all everybody will succeed,
not everybody will be wealthy,
not everybody will get what the desire within the snap of their fingers…
so far am breathing,
me am satisfied….. but if I die and come to this world again,I will rewrite my destiny.
I bent and started fixing his royalty bead,I would clean my hands on my wrapper each time I want to touch his skin and I tried not to avoid any skin contact with him..
I cleaned my hands very well before touching his diamond bracelet,I slip it off his wrist gently and kept it with me;he is always careless with expensive things.
what if somebody sees us together?.
a nobody with a royalty.
am surely gonna be accused wrongly
“my prince,are you okay?”,
I asked like he could hear.
no words*no reply.
My fear started cooking up as I heard approaching footsteps,my mind didn’t leave him but I have to.
I hastily ran past the flowers for refuge,I used the flowers for coverage.
The person happens to be princess Akuna…
“mother I found him,first!!!
“I found Lotanna!!! she shouted..
how long will she continue shouting?
next,she lean into him and kissed him on the cheeks tightly.
The royal guards showed up with the queen.I breathed in relief as I covered the flowers.
i started running,
I didn’t even see ngozi coming until she called my name and jammed me, we both stopped.
“Adeife where to-
isn’t that blood on your forehead?”, she asked.
“blood where?”, I asked as I used the back of my palm to wipe my forehead. I wiped it out completely till it was no more.
“whose blood is that?”, I asked.
“it’s Lotanna’s blood,someone hit him with stick around tbr waterfall side” I said,she covered my mouth.
we continuer walking.
“you saw him”, she said.
“yes after the attack and I helped him gained consciousness” I said,piously
“is he fine?”, she asked.
“I don’t know” I replied.
“oh so did you touch him and steal a kiss,his lips tastes sweet right?”, she asked. I scoffed.
“in my dreams”, I replied,we both laughed.
we part ways,I returned to the palace, there was no feast again,everyone already left.
not even a single maid was seen loitering around,I returned to the maids quarter.
we were just four in the room I stay and each of us sleeps in a separate bed,we live so comfortably that at times I used to wish my stay won’t expire….
I laid on my bed and used one of my wrappers for coverage,the other girls slept but I was finding difficulty in sleeping.I felt like I should be one enduring the pains.
I woke up quiet late,the girls were up before me which was quiet unusual, am always the first to wake up.
“hi hi hi” I greeted the girls..
Dumebi,Shirley and Rhoda.
“hi adeife” dumebi replied and faced the girls back.It’s obvious they were discussing.
“this palace is Now as silent as a graveyard, prince Lotanna’s incident ruin yesterday expensive feast. me that I was even happy that I would see Princess Regina,my world best… yesterday,so sad this had to happen” Shirley said.
“the news of what happened to him is out,let me call chioma” Vicky rushed out and came in with another girl….from where I sat,I stared at the girls blankly.I still checked my pillow; it was still there;
Lotanna diamond bracelet.I had remove it from his hand so that none would steal it.
chioma cleared her throat.
“the king found the attacker,there is another news that prince Lotanna got drunk” chioma said, the girls looked at each other.
“it’s a lie we all know that it is not possible.How can you say he got drunk? someone that doesn’t eat the type of food we eat here,is it possible he will get intoxicated by our drinks” Rhoda said.
“Lotanna drunk….it’s a lie,I scent him yesterday,he wasn’t smelling of alcohol” I said in my mind.
the girls continue talking.
“it wsd Akuna who saw him,she helped him gained consciousness, am sure she stole a kiss.She’s lucky with a silver spoon” Vicky said.
“wait,is akuna in this palace” dumebi asked..
“yes,she still haven’t gone to her kingdom” chioma said.
“hell ooooooo” the girls shouted and started dispersing.
I kept the bracelet in my belongings and strolled out to start my early morning work.
I stayed in his room hoping he would at least open his eyes,he didn’t.
even the city doctor got confused….
his breathing is okay, why didn’t he opened his eyes..
my fears rose to its peak,I can’t loose my brother….I love him so much even though he is hot tempered and does not listen to me..
Am even thinking of flying him out, never in my life will I allow this village physician touch him.
“aunty Tracy,why isn’t he opening his eyes?”, amarachi asked.
the doctor sighed.
“he was thinking when the incident happen,that’s why he is taking long to respond to treatment” the doctor said. Amarachi followed him out and took him to the queen.
I moved close to his bed and gently had his head placed on my laps.
Jidenna came in with his hand tucked into his trouser pocket.
“how is he???”,he asked and moved closer to touch his forehead.
he got a call and went out..
“Lotanna did I not told you to stop thinking… you do not always listen to me,please stop thinking,it’s not cute. I can’t bear to see you in pains, I wish you can listen to me,
you don’t always tell me things,
how do I even know what you’re thinking when you’re so secretive….
please just listen to me and stop thinking,even if it once in this year” I said..
he’s actually getting out of hand,
what an introvercy???
trapping him in the village is the only way mother could steal his time…
the Lotanna that I know doesn’t stay in this type of environment,
in fact he doesn’t stay in a mansion for three months, he changes mansions every three months.
I think mother has a purpose for trapping him here.
Akuna came in with a smile on her lips,I returned her smile.
“thanks for finding him yesterday”
“don’t mention,am actually doing it for myself” she said and stated at Lotanna dreamingly.
***doing it for myself** I don’t get that statement but I waved it off,
everybody likes him,he is every girls crush…I don’t see the statement as anything.
“ummm did you find his bracelet,it wasn’t with him when he was brought in,am guess you found it since you said you saw him first” I said, she dialated her eyes.
“I didn’t see anything with him,just a red lauded phone” she said.
“or did someone else found him first,I thought you helped him gain consciousness….isn’t tat your five fingers on the white top he wore yesterday” I asked, sounding worrisome….even if a person find it,the person might not want to return it…it cost so much fortunes.
At times,I wonder why Lotanna is always careless with expensive things..
“am the one” akuna said.
“I will just call the maids to bring hot water” she changed topic and went out…
there’s hot water tap running in his washroom.
o sighed and hastily placed his head gently on a soft pillow.I entered the washroom to mix his bath.
I heard sounds of the door opening, guess the maids.
“drop them on the slivery stand carefully,I will help him with it” I said.
I peeped,there were six.
I couldn’t see their faces,the hole was tiny,I faced what I was doing back.
I heard the sound of the door again, I checked, it was a maid, just one last maid leaving…I didn’t bother checking their faces, they can’t try poisoning my brother right-
I came out of the washroom fully and
checked what the brought in,and turned to look at Lotanna, his diamond bracelet blinded my sight…
how come??? the maids??
one of the maids-
I rushed out.
