episode 23🎻🎻🎻
I turned,it was nkem who called Lotanna’s name,I felt bad I caused trouble again;was i high?
“trouble right….do not come close to me,avoid me,if possible let’s not see” he said,
I nodded.He didn’t even look his phone.
He didn’t utter any more word,he brush his diamond ringed f!ng£r to the back of his head,it is visible it pained.He walked past me while carefully making sure his body did not touch my is not like I have infections and body odor right?.
it hurts me a lot whenever people avoid my body,when I was growing my mates did that to me because of my ugliness and because of the cane marks onome inflicted on me, that was why I formed the habit of hidding from people,I take my loneliness alone and the avoidance of body contact reduced.
since he is already avoiding me so much,am glad ngozi and the rest are kind to me….besides,I need to have s£nse here;.
Nkem looked at Lotanna as he left, he faced me when he was out of sight.
“was he mean to you?”, he asked.
“ohh no,his phone what am i suppose to do?”,I fidget as I picked the phone,half of the screen was damaged.
I faced Nkem,piously.
“do you know how much this cost?”, I asked him,
the queen approached,I hurriedly stop talking to nkem,I bowed in respect and left withy tray and his phone.
what was I even thinking; a repair.
I know the phone can buy me…
chai Adeife avoid trouble!.
I dropped the tray inside the kitchen and returned to the maids quarter, I went over to my belongings and kept the phone safely,in turn I brought out the beads and fishing line I purchased from old Nana.
I sat on my bed and keep myself busy since the girls don’t like speaking with me.Just greetings and when work join us together.
I miss ngozi.
“Do you mean olamma did all that yesterdays show? chai,I pity Arinze he still hasn’t know olamma as a player.Olamma will eat eat eat eat his money and run away-
🚹 Am guessing Princess Akuna is behind that bully,she is fond of bullying,I wonder who is her next scape goat” Vicky said.
the girls laughed.
“thank goodness am always avoiding her” chioma said.
“what if Akuna become our next queen-she might marry whosoever becomes the king among the twins prince” Rhoda said.
🚹 fire ooooo
🚹 hell,the kingdom will be in disorder; Akuna for queen in our kingdom,we die here..
“no wonder she always make friends with only her types; olamma,Adanna, Chiamanda and Vivian-
hmmm,I wonder who will start washing olamma cloths Now that Ife is here- chioma said.
I stayed quiet and continued what I was doing.
Another maid came in.Ohh Ebere.
she came to my side.
“sir Nkem calls for you” she said.
“okay” I puffed and part the curtains so i could look through the window, outside was dark why is nkem calling me…
“why is he calling me,is it for work?”, I asked.
all eyes followed me,most especially chioma.
she cleared her throat in an annoying manner,I shot her a glare.
“how can I know why he calls for you…mind you he is at the garden waiting” ebere said. I kept my beads under my pillow and followed her out
she left me alone when I was almost approaching the garden,
I got there,it was dark, only the stars brightened it a little bit.
I used my eyes to search around,I didn’t see nkem;was Ebere lying?.
I decided to leave,a pair of strong hand dragged me back,
my fear cooked up as conniption gripped me,I relaxed in full when it turned out to be nkem.
He looked at me as if many points of lights flourish in his heart,my stomach follows,it feels like falling off a high hill….
“sir you scared me?”i said in a fright.
my eyes shimmer,my breath shortens as he stared at me with that melancholic gaze.
“sir you scared me” I said in a fright, again.
“was it scary?”he asked.
he lay on the neat gr@ss field and tapped there for me to sit.
He dragged my hand down,and I sat with a little distance.
no words*just looking into the skies.
“sir you called me” I said,I really don’t want us to be seen together.
“the story,tell me another one” he said….
“Once upon a time,there lived a wicked queen,she gave birth to so many children,and her children usually run away from her,they would change both their nane and surname so that no one would know that they belong to the wicked queen family,they did this because their mother is not a considerate person,she always think she is the prettiest and fairest,she traveled around just to meet a verrry powerful magician who made her an amulet so she could know if there is anyone more pretty than her.
“dear amulet,among the immortals, who is the prettiest” she would ask.
“you,my queen” the amulet would reply her.
this same question continued for two full moon,the amulet gives the same answers until a day.
“dear amulet,who is the prettiest among the immortals” she asked.
“Star,star is the prettiest my queen” the amulet replied her.
out of *jealousy,she s£nt armed men to kill star out of desperation.
the armed* men left,they return to the queen and wanted to tell her something before killing the star but the queen didn’t give listening ears,all she wants was the death news….
the armed men went back and killed star,they returned and the queen was happy for the job well done until one of the armed men spoke;
“we killed her but she was your daughter Florence” he said.
the queen went mad in the end”
I told the story.
“awww touching… star star star.Good for the queen” nkem said.
“ummm I don’t like the way star died” I said.
Nkem smiled.
from where he sat,he held my hands.
I saw it as nothing,
I looked up into the sky and admire the stars,my eyes drifted to lotanna’s window,I could see lights inside through the windows…
am sorry,I hope I didn’t you trouble,
maybe next time,just next time,I will be more careful each time you are near….
I didn’t blink until nkem tapped my leg.
“that’s a shooting star,I want to make a wish” he said.
I joined him looking at the stars.
“I wish my love for love grow in her heart” he says.
*my love for love* does that make s£nse; it might to him.
“love,is that a persons name?”, I asked,confused.
“yeah,it’s someone’s name” he said.
“okay,your love will grow in love’s heart” I said innocently.
“so make your wish” he said.
“who,me?”, I asked.
am not used to bring treated kind, am the one who treat people nicely, people h@rdly do the same to me.
“who, me???”, I asked.Nkem was waiting.
“will it come true?”, I asked.
“sure,if you believe” he said.
I blinked my eyes,his stares makes me feel so uncomfortable…
I remembered Lotanna, the sparks I get each time our eyes lock,I would feel like am falling into trances of oceans.
in my dreams!
my dreams do not come true.
Nkem cleared his throat,I jolted out of my thoughts.
“I wish my mom didn’t die” I said,I was already in tears.
“hey, don’t cry it’s not cute”
he said and wiped my tears…
“who are those there????”,
someone said…..
🚹isn’t that the queen’s voice?
[the girl he never noticed💦]
episode 24🎻🎻🎻
I stood up hastily and found refuge at the back of some flowers,nkem also stood up he bounce walked forward, the wueeh p@ssed that moment.
“what are you doing here alone?”,
she asked.
nkem took his l!ps in and ran his f!ng£rs to the back of his neck.
“am resting” he said.
“fresh air….isn’t there air conditioner on your room?”, the queen asked.
“ammmm….” he searched for answers, the queen eye landed on my anklets.
gosh,I had actually kept it on the floor.
how careless?
the queen picked it up and smiled.
“nkem you’re with a female again,how many girls are you even seeing,Akwa ka Aziza…hope you’re ready to be a father?” the queen said.
she dropped my anklet and left.
I came out of my hideout immediately she left,I picked my anklets.
its true nken have numerous girlfriends,even the queen knows the type of cousin she has.Nkem mother also died immediately he was born,it was the queen that brought him up as a mother.
lucky him.
“sir….I will leave” I said and wanted to run,he still dragged me back by my hand.
“the queen might come back again” I said with nervousness.
“hey,don’t think about what she said” he said, I carefully sl!p my hand away.Even ngozi told me he is a woman wrapper,he crosses females legs like he is crossing road.
I watch him took his l!ps in.
“miss…am not a peeve, you’re just a friend” he said,and still stared at me,
I nodded and ran away.I bumped imto chioma,she cleared her throat in an annoying manner.
I retired to my bed and kept my anklet in my save…
*I wish my love for love will grow in her heart*****
but my name means crown of love..
Aaaaah,it can’t be me!
no good looking guy would want an ugly nobody as a partner.
Jeeeezzzz…even Lotanna always avoid me,everyone avoid me-
maybe,just maybe am only meant to appreciate his handsomeness.
chioma’s clap woke me up fully,
I wake up last again!!
“guess what I saw yesterday?”,
she started.
I excused myself and went to bath.
“abeg that one no be news again”,
Vicky said immediately I came in from the bathroom.
“whatever” I rolled my eyeballs avd selected what to wear.
“as ugly as she is…tufiakwa”
I heard one of the girls saying.
I turned,the person talking kept quiet.
“say it again or remain silent forevermore” I said.
“as ugly as she is!!! i heard again, it was dumebi.
“dumebi what exactly do you want??? is it fight or my insults because have tolerated you enough” I said.
🚹 ugly bratty!!!!!
🚹 leave nkem alone!!!
🚹 he is someone else boyfriend!!!
🚹 boyfriend snatcher!!!!!
🚹 slimming baren unripe pawpaw!!
🚹 gold digging whore!!!!!!
dumebi shouted as she clapped.
I laughed even though the insults are touching, other kids are fond of doing that to me,always treating me harshly.
“you that you’re beautiful,what have you achieved? ain’t we in the same level-maid maid…
legs like broom stick,what shape do you have?

“chimooo!!! Rhoda shouted.
“just p@ssing by! chioma said.
“the insult much oo” Vicky said.
Mrs okafor came in,
we all minded our business.
“what’s the news all about humm?”,
she asked.
no one replied.
she sighed and left.
I dressed up and stated my work.
Ebere p@ssed by,
“Adeife,hi” she waved.
“I’m good and you?”, I asked.
“fine,are you using anything for the marks on your body?”, she asked.
“no,aunt Tracy said she would get cream for me,guess her travel is today” I said.
“yes,she has been promoted to the position of a barrister-in fact she has a case at an high court at lekki to settle😁” she said
“I wish her good luck” I said.
“yeah me too” she replied.
soon we were done,we both approached the kitchen to carry our foods.Mrs okafor was in sharing coconut candy.
what a mother to all of us?.
she approached Ebere,
“aaah” she said,Ebere opened her mouth,she smiled and Dropped the candy in.
waoow,I like her.
what a mother? it made me love to experience motherly love…
no one cares for me apart from ngozi.
I carried my food and started leaving as she looked in my direction…
she doesn’t need to act as a mother to me,am ugly right?.
“ADEIFE over here” she called.
“me or her?”, I accosted.
“Aaaah” she said as she walked towards my direction.
I smiled and opened my mouth, she put the homemade candy in my mouth..
“thanks mother” I said.I wish I have a mother too.
the other girls left already.
“only you said thank you” she said..
I smiled and still wanted to leave.
“kindly drop this at Lotanna’s living room,there is a dining by the right” she said.
“okay” I said and dropped my own food.I washed my hands before touching the tray.
I p@ssed different stairway,
soon I arrived.
I knocked, no reply again!.
I popped my head in,I rushed in and dropped the tray with care.
I got to the door but stopped when I saw the bead ngozi gave me as gift on a golden stool..
what’s it doing here?
‘it is mine, it has my name!
“does he likes it,why is he keeping it?
💌 trouble right,avoid me do not come near me…neither shall we see nor meet”.
I remembered his words,I rushed out and closed his door.
I left.
my Tracy’s p.o.v
where is Lotanna??? his he not suppose to join general dining for breakfast??? is there something he is hiding?? his snubish attitude is getting out of hand…this is not my brothers attitude? he was not like this as at last year…all this started when he built “glamour and believe”.
“Tracy you’re not eating” mother said
“so as I was saying,if I become the king,nkem I will…” Jidenna said.
“father isn’t dead,you’re dreaming of kind already…gosh,am full”
I said and stood up.
It started raining and I still have a flight to catch.
“where is Lotanna?”, I asked.
“at the waterfall,am sure Akuna is with him”Nkem said.
Akuna,why akuna-are they that close,are they an item…
I left,soon I arrived at the waterfall.
I met Akuna there,she looked so bothered.
“why are you staying here all alone in the rain,where is Lotanna?”, I asks.
she kept quiet.
“get out of the rain” I said.
“noo noo,let me be.Just get Lotanna out of the rain first…you know his health issues” she said.
“fine,I will…just leave the rain” i said, offering to share my umbrella.
“no,I can’t he doesn’t want to see me…just get him out of the rain and make sure he is fine.He is in the orch@rd” she said,a tear dropped out of her eyes, she wiped it off.
why all this painful expression because of Lotanna?
I left the waterfall and locate the orch@rd, there he was sitting in a pavement.
Under this rain!!
has he forgotten he has cold?.
he turned,I quickly hide.
“Tracy,I saw you no need hiding” he said and stood up.
“don’t leave,I want to talk to you” I said..
“no need” he said and took few steps…
“Lotanna you can talk to me,an your elder sister,you can share secrets with me,who hurt you? talk to me even if it is once in this year…I love you so much…remember what we used to be, what we used to share, do not shut me out like you do to other people,this is Tracy…you can trust me,
look at me my light…” I said.
“how am I sure you’re…” he paused.
“can i trust you,elder sister?..
“Xinren means trust in each other,but the reason why am alive today is because i don’t have trust in other people….all because of three things!
I’m scared to love a girl,
I’m scared to trust,
and am scared to…..” he paused.
“I’m scared to tell you the reason,bye happy birthday in advance” he said, and hasten his catwalk.
hmmm,what is he talking about??
