herself quietly

“I must become the next queen

of this kingdom…whatever it

will take me but I must be the

next queen of this kingdom

and Iyami has said that there

are two obstacle to achieving

my aim…Remi and the Oba

himself and she is right, if the

Oba remains in power for so

long the prince can not rule, he

has to die or step down for the

prince to take over the

kingship…if the Oba is off from

the seat of power then I can

focus on the prince…I thank the

gods I have access now to the

Oba eating room, since I’m a

personal maiden to the Queen

mother I can sneak into the

Oba’s eating room and drop

the content in his food and

sneak back out before he

comes in to eat…let me first of

all observe movement and

know how to go about my

plan…power must change

hand…I must become the next

queen by fire or force but

whatever that must happen for

it to come to reality I will make

sure it happens…I will tell Leja

about my plans in taking the

oba off the throne so that

Omaoba can take up the seat

of power and with time he will

fall for me and marry me and I

will become the next Queen…

oh how interesting it will be if

all my plans works out…first of

all I have something else to do

to that fool called Remi…Iyami

will take care of Remi’s mother,

Leja will have to make sure the

prince gets drunk and I must

watch movement around the

Oba’s eating room and know

how to start up….hahahaha…

my enemies are in hot soup…

they are in serious trouble…

The princess was walking

around with Remi, she told

Remi not to stress herself in

doing most of her chores again

because of her condition, and

there were other maiden

attending to the princess so

that Remi can have much time

to rest.

“I’m sorry that I couldn’t

convince my brother…I told

you he can be difficult

sometimes and I wish he will

believe you and take you as his

wife, you are worthy of the

title and I will be so please to

have you sit right next to my

brother as his wife and the

future Queen of this great

kingdom, no one else deserve

such title as you are…

“I’m not asking him to marry

me all I wanted was for him to

know that the pregnancy

belong to him and not to Leja

as he claims…but we tried and

you also tried your best to

convince him it did not end

well, so let’s leave the rest for

the gods…thank you for

speaking up for me princess…

“yes, let us leave all for the

gods…I silently pray that my

brother will do the right

thing…I and Tunde will be

married if the gods pleases and

I will give birth to both male

and female… I will teach my

children never to run away

from a mistake or to deny a

fault rather they have to be

strong and take responsibility

for their every action, I will

instill this teaching on every

male child given to us by the

gods…they will have to be

humble, respectful and never

to sweep a wrong under the

carpet…Remi, I can’t wait to

get marry to Tunde…and start

a family with him…aaah…

Tunde will make a good

husband and a great father…I

can feel it…I love him…I have

this funny feeling anytime he

comes around…and I feel shy

when he looks at me or hold

my hands…sometimes I wish

he will stay all day but he still

have to go…I just wish he will

hurry up with the traditions

and marry me so that we can

be together for ever…

“Yes he will…and is obvious

that he loves you too…your

marriage will happen after all

preparation is done which will

start next week…just a little

patient my princess and your

marriage with Tunde will

happen soon and you can start

a family with him…

“I’m happy to hear you say

that…sorry if I’m acting stupid

right now…I’m just love

struck…after everything is done

and marriage ceremony is over

you will be free to go home

except if the Queen mother

decide to keep you, and I know

very soon the Queen will find

out that you are pregnant,

don’t be scared my mother is

very understanding and loving,

she may not be please you got

pregnant this way…just like

every mother but she is very

understanding… wherever you

are make sure you visit me

sometimes when I finally settle

with Tunde…and I will also be

coming around to visit too…the

Oba and the queen will be so

happy to have grand children…

and I can’t wait to give them

that…I wish my brother took

responsibility of your

pregnancy, you would have

being the first to give them a

grandchild it would have been

so good…having you as a sister

in-law will be great don’t you


“haa….that will be too much to

ask from the gods…being a

commoner doesn’t give me any

chance to compete with the

royal maiden of this land who

your brother the Prince maybe

interested in, but…I will take

that as a compliment my

princess, it doesn’t matter if I

bear my child without a

father…I will bring him or her

up in the right way and just

like you said earlier…I will

teach my child never to sweep

a wrong under a carpet but

rather take responsibility for

every action.

The prince walk round his

chamber and Leja came in with

drink and served him which he

has already mixed with the

grinded leaf that Nike gave

him, he put just a little since is

just to weaken the prince.

“I can see you are so tensed

today my prince…take some

drink so that you will feel good

again…there is an adage that

says alcohol makes you see

better and forgets your

sorrow…Omooba drink up so

that you will feel at ease…

As the prince drank the third

cup as Leja continued to fill his

cup whenever it gets empty, he

told Leja he doesn’t want to

get drunk so he shouldn’t pour

much drink for him again but

Leja kept on filling in, he

wanted to get the prince drunk

so that he can sneak in Nike

into his chamber and in that

way the prince can lay with

her, just like he did with Remi,

and he has being waiting for

the time or day when the

prince will be troubled over

something and he will

convince him into drinking to

stupor, him and Nike need to

start executing their plan so

that they will be able to

achieve their aim, the prince

pause from drinking as he

looked at the filled cup that

Leja just poured for him, the

drink was stronger than his

usual, it taste as if it was mixed

with something, he was

already getting tipsy as he

blink severally but his senses

were intact

“do you want to get me drunk

Leja…the last time I got drunk i

landed into a serious trouble…

and Is same trouble that I’m

trying to get away from…your

woman…Remi bringing your

pregnancy for me to claim it as

mine, you told me the

pregnancy was yours and she

told me so clearly before that I

never touched her, now

suddenly she is claiming I laid

with her, and I can’t even

remember such happening,

Leja you have serve in this

place for so long and that was

why the Oba made you a chief

guard of the whole palace…just

because you are trust worthy,

you have never disappointed

me, you saved me from getting

drown in that river, it may feel

like it was what you suppose

to do for me but I believe you

did it more because you care

about my welfare and

everyone else here, I believed

you when you told me she was

your lover and when you said

that she was carrying your

child, but she came here again

and boldly said…that she was

not afraid of the Oba or me…

she even sent my sister to

come and beg me to accept

her…she said couple of other

things…can you imagine the

madness, so crazy…she is

strong willed and I kind of feel

she has a presence moving

with her…I wonder why she

was trying to blackmail me

with a pregnancy that is totally

yours so that I can settle with

her…that is insane…don’t you

think…and I thought she is a

good maiden…I will certainly

tell the Oba…she will have to

come and repeat herself in the

presence of the Oba…

Leja saw that the drink was

gradually taking effect, he was

waiting for him to drink up the

last one in the cup so that he

can pour another for him, he

was happy that he added little

of the grinded leaf that Nike

gave him, it will weaken the

prince and makes him sleep for

a very long time. he thought

within himself “ if Remi can not

be mine she will never be

yours too, I will not only

poison your mind towards her

I will also make you lay with

Niki and that is where your

down fall will start… for

picking interest in the woman I

first met, defiling her and

getting her in with a child that

was suppose to be mine…

“My prince, Remi is a liar and a

cheat, don’t ever listen to

anything she says, her sister

Nike is better off than her, her

sister is sincere and truthful,

but Remi is after the wealth of

the palace and after you, she is

carrying my child and claiming

that is yours…that is not good

at all…knowing well that you

did not even touch her…Remi is

not to be trusted, she is not

what she think she is…very

dangerous maiden

The prince drank off the last

shot and Leja poured in

another one, Leja tried to

poison his mind the more and

he drank another cup before

standing up, he told Leja that

his head was pounding, that

there was something else in

the drink that weakens him at

every cup he takes, Leja asked

him to lie down and he did.

Leja waited for him to sleep off

before going to Nike, he

waited for darkness to come

before sneaking Nike into the

Prince chamber.

Iya Remi checked her food that

she was cooking at the

backyard that night, she stirred

it properly before going back

inside with her oil lamp

It was the opportunity that Iya

Nike who has being waiting

patiently for her to leave the

pot of food and go away, she

tip toed quietly towards the

fire place with the wrapped

content in her hand.

It was time, her mind was

made up on this, and there was

no going back. She needed to

be fast before Iya Remi will

return to the pot

Iya Nike was happy for the tick

darkness that covers up the

whole place and her cloth was

also black, she will not be

easily seen.

Dami, Remi’s brother was

coming from another side of

the back yard but Nike’s

mother did not see him

because his cloth was not


he was quietly coming towards

Iya Nike’s direction.


Episode 18.


Dami noticed a movement in the dark and stopped to ascertain what he was really seeing and just then Iya Nike moved again and Dami started screaming, calling his mother that a ghost is in their backyard and moving towards their fire place.

Iya Nike was shock as she hard Dami’s scream, the content in her hand fell off and she quickly bend down to pick it, she stood at a spot as iya Remi ran out with speed immediately she hard her son’s scream.

With the help of the oil lamp in her hand she saw that it was Iya Nike, she was surprise, she wonder what iya Nike was doing in her backyard close to her fire place where she was cooking night food after a long day in the market

Is being a very long time since iya Nike crossed to her backyard, she has being keeping malice with her and do not even respond to her greetings ever since Remi beat her and Nike up after they set trap in their front door.

Iya Remi saw that she was in a black wrapper which made Dami to think she is a ghost, she wondered why she was in black, who could she be mourning

“Iya Nike…ooh is you… what happened… you got Dami scared…

“,Uhmmm my senior wife… don’t mind me jare…I was coming to… to ask you for Something…I know we have being having this continues misunderstanding for a very long time… and is not good and I’m really tired with the constant fighting and quarreling…I just wanted to say let’s stop all this fighting and start living as one family… you are my senior wife and despite our husband is late that is not enough reason to be fighting each other all the time..he won’t be happy in the grave…so I thought you will be cooking at the backyard as usual because I know you came back late from the market…so I decided to come and see you here, I wanted to sit and talk with you that was why I did not go through the front door, I did not even know that you are inside..I was just coming and Dami started screaming…

Iya Remi was shock to hear iya Nike say all that and even call her “senior wife” iya Nike has never called her that before, respect or talk in this manner ever since their husband died, she sounded so remorseful and convincing.

iya Remi was so happy that iya Nike has finally come to her senses

She silently thanked the gods because she was tired of the constant misunderstanding between them every time

Iya Remi offered her a seat and she sat down as they talk some more and even laugh, she offered her some of her food but iya Nike said that she just finish eating not too long before coming to meet her.

Iya Nike later left as iya Remi bid her good night,

As they entered inside Dami began to talk to his mother

“Maami…I saw her moving towards the pot of food that was on fire… she is probably up to something and I felt goose bombs all over when I saw her… she smells of terror… maami you have to be careful… me…I don’t feel comfortable with this her sudden friendship…that woman is always filled with trouble..

She can’t suddenly change… just like that…

“Gbe neu sun (keep quiet) what do you even know, don’t you know that people change, you are suppose to be happy that the gods has finally turned her around, iya Nike is very sincere and she was real and I am so happy… finally the gods has brought back peace and unity in our home…

Nike kept trying to get the prince to touch her but it wasn’t working out, she put off his clothes and left only his undies, she also off her own cloth and climb on top of the prince with her naked body, trying to do everything possible so that he will have an erection but the prince was in a deep sleep because of the mix drink that Leja gave him and he couldn’t move.

He mumbled something in his sleep and repeated it twice,

Nike stared at him and was seriously wishing she will belong to the prince, as he mumbled again she placed her ear to his mouth to hear what he was saying and was shock when the prince mentioned a name that sounds like “Remi” Nike got angry and slap the prince in his manhood making him to suddenly shake and he came awake.

The prince was awake and blink severally to be sure of what was happening

Nike was scared as the prince awaken, the prince wasn’t suppose to wake up so soon, it was too early, is either Leja did not mix the drink well or the prince did not take enough doze, she started regretting slapping his sensitive part, which might have hurt him and made him to wake up.

Nike began to think of what she was going to do, she was naked she jumped down from the bed but did not bother dressing up, she wanted the prince to see her naked maybe in that way he will be move to lay with her

The prince swore under his breath and sat up from the bed, he was confuse and wondered why Nike was not only naked in his chamber but him too was half dressed also, only in his undies, he swore again before checking himself, he took a wrapper to wrap up himself before standing up.

“Wha…what…in the gods name are you doing in my chamber… who are you…wait.. you are Remi’s sister…so why are you naked… whaaaat are you doing here and how do my cloths gets off from my body…I remember sleeping with my cloths on after the drinks Leja gave me…I remember so clearly sleeping in cloths how come… did you touch my…what is happening…why I’m I feeling this pain under… what is going on…will you cover up immediately because your nakedness disgust me…is irritating how you stand there comfortably without your cloths on…. how do you get into my chamber…why are you here… by this time of the night… start talking before I call the guards, they will have to come and explain how you got in here… answer me quick…

Nike saw that the game has changed, she stammered as she quickly thought of what to say, she grabbed her cloth and wore back as the prince wait for her to explain

“Omooba.. imabinu..moro Leja si won.. (i’m sorry my prince you asked Leja to send for me) when I came you laid with me, you made love to me my prince and you said you love me while you were on it …that is why I’m naked…

“Shut… shut up… who sent for you and did you say I… omooba laid with you…me…wait…do you say I laid with who…hahahaha…this is so interesting…go and fetch me Leja… immediately… all of you will have alot to explain…get out of my face, out of my chamber…now..

Nike ran out immediately the prince was pacing the room angrily and swearing under his breath, something was not right and he will have to know what exactly is going on.

Dami walked into his grandma’s kitchen with the fire wood, after setting up the fire he placed a pot of water for his grandmother’s evening bath before coming to join her outside where she was peeling melon

“I sent a message to your mother two days ago… you didn’t deliver it to her…I guess…

“I did…but maami said she is too busy… she said there is no time to see you but she will come once she is a little free…iya.. she have being so occupied with the fufu business…I must say and comes back late at night…

“Hmmm…I understand, I wish she could spare just a little time to come and spend with me… everything in life is not all about being busy and making money… she enjoy going to the market and talking with other women, your mother will rather send you or your elder sister down than to come here herself.. she was all that the gods used to clean my tears from my years of childlessness, she is my only child and the gods blessed me even more with you and your sister through her, you know sometimes all I want is to spend time with your mother but she has a mind of her own since when she was a little girl.. she looked hardened yet so soft, an easy prey for her enemies…I plead to the gods to keep her away from the trouble I see lurking around…

“Iya, do you know that Yesterday…I saw iya Nike in our backyard, I was coming from the outhouse and was so scared when I saw her snooping around our fire place, covered up in a black cloth… she was upto something…I screamed in shock not knowing she was the one and maami ran outside and iya Nike said she was only there for peace meeting, she told maami that she wanted them to drop their differences and embrace peace..maami believed her but I don’t…iya Nike talking about peace…is a lie… she is probably upto something iya…

“You maybe right…a fowl does not run in the night, is either pursuing something or something is pursuing it…but it does not run in vain….your mother needs to be careful if she really want to live long and escape all hidden traps… she have to be wise.. she is too soft… she should shield herself and you from future mishap…iya Nike is up to no good…omo mi..jowo… go and put fire in that pot of water so that I can warm the ifo eriro soup I made yesterday and put some for you to eat before you go…I still have enough fufu from the last one you brought…

Dami went into the kitchen and checked the water, after bringing it down he quickly placed the pot of soup on fire.

He love eating his grandma’s food, it always have a special taste.
