Remi and her Squad arrive the

kingdom, some of the guards

has already gone ahead of

them to inform everyone of

Remi’s arrival with the prince

son who is believed to be the

diamond child.

People came out of their

houses as the news began to

go round that the pregnant

maiden who was innocently

banished returned with a son

she had for Omooba. A

Diamond child and a seed of

crown.

News travelled so far as every

one came out to watch and

rejoice, the men came to

welcome them with gangan

and dundun (talking drum)

they played fine music and the

happy women dance, some

other people came to hug

Remi, others came to see the

diamond child which was

foretold.

They came with different

harvest from their farm yard.

They gave different gifts, like

goats, fowl and so many other

gift to Remi and her Squad.

The small crowd gradually turn

into a big crowd as different

people came to join to

welcome Remi and the

strangers with her.

Mikai exclaim happily as she

saw lots of people gathering

up around them as they gently

walk down, they greeted them

warmly in their dialect, some

wanted to touch Ademide, the

Diamond child. Who was

securely tired on Remi’s back.

Some threw their wrapper on

the floor in honour to the

diamond child.

“Wow, so many people…Pah

can you see…I feel like I’m a

celebrity…like a princess in the

means of all this people…oh

my God…I have never seen so

many people like this…they are

giving Remi the honour

of a

Queen…this is awesome…see

all her people they are huge…

Pah, I like it here…I like to be in

the means of all this people…

they are singing and dancing

and is all unique… Pah can we

live here…maybe for

sometime…please don’t go

anywhere….Remi’s people are

all warm and inviting…I want

to be among them…

“hahaha…this is like a

triumphant entry…I never

expected it…I like it here too, if

you like it here then we all can

stay, Mikai, we will stay here

together if God wills it, I feel

God is giving us another home

among this great people…I feel

so glad that God Remembered

Remi and Emmanuel. We will

pitch our tent and bring light

to those in darkness…God is

giving us another home…

taking us away from the forest

into this Kingdom…

Remi and the squad went

down to her grandma’s place

while the remaining guards

return to the palace. The prince

who was standing with the

princess and wondering what

was happening outside the

palace. The singing the

multiple gangan sound.

“My heart want to boast out…

maybe Remi has returned…oh

the gods be praise if it happens

to be true…do you think she

will ever forgive me….how do I

even approach her now…after

all we put her through…oh

Remi…I feel so happy yet so

scared that she may not

forgive me…or allow me to

hold my son…well I deserve

every of her judgment…I

wronged her…the land owe

her greatly…I wish I can take

her away from those crowd

and draw her into a warm

embrace…I really miss her…i…I

do…I just hope I’m right and I

am not ridding ahead of

myself…what if she refuse to

come back…what if she swear

never to set her feet here again

what are we going to do…

what I’m I going to do without

her, I could have

gone into that

forest and plead with her

myself but I can’t leave the

throne, is not right. Father and

the cabinet men are all done,

mother too…I have wanted to

go, but it was not a wise

decision, that was why I stayed

back, everyday that passes

without any news of her return

gives me heart ache …oh I just

hope she is the one…

The princess looked up at his

brother and started laughing

as he placed his hand on his

chest with a confused face

“I’m certain that Remi has

return…there is no other way

the kingdom will be this lively

and happy, she took the colour

of this place when she left now

everything is coming back,

there has being cry of sadness

and one bad news or the other

ever since she left, now there

are shout of joy on her return…

I wish I can run out there right

now…I am so happy my heart

want to boast…Remi is back

with your son…relax…she will

forgive you…she maybe angry

for some time but she will

forgive you…le…

The guards who were with

Remi came into the palace and

the Prince breathed deeply as

they came to him with Remi’s

return.

The prince screamed excitedly

and also the princess, Ope ran

out as the news got to her. She

came to the princess

“I was hearing music and

singing…I thought is coming

from my head because is being

a very long time we rejoice

over anything in this

kingdom…oh the gods be

praise…

The princess was happy as she

and Ope talked, the prince was

rejoicing as he ask the guards

“Do you see my son…how is

he…did Remi return with a

stranger…tell me more

“The diamond child as people

call him has your look, my

prince he look so much like

you. And Remi came back with

some stranger not just one, a

very young girl and a tall, huge

man, his name is Sipah. He has

a monkey on his shoulder,

Remi seem to be so fond of

him…he is a man with a deep

scar on his forehead but strong

arms and good looks too.

The prince breathed deeply, he

robbed his too sweating palms

as he wonder about Remi and

the stranger that the guards

said she was fond of, Leja has

lied to him that Remi was his

love and he believed him but

not again, he will plead with

everything possible even to the

stranger to let Remi go, he

doesn’t want to take chances

again and loose her and he

doesn’t care if Remi and the

stranger lives as husband and

wife in the forest all that

matters is that he will fight for

the woman he has never stop

loving and for his son.

He asked few guard to follow

him so that he can go over to

Remi’s grandma place, where

Remi and her squad were

lodging.

.

The princess and Ope followed

happily but the prince chased

them back. He asked them to

wait when he return they can

go and see her. All of them can

not leave the palace at once

Oba and the Queen mother

may need one of them.

Leja looked out from the

breeze block where they were

kept, he wonder why there

was so much noise. Nike sat on

the ground, eating the left over

food that a maiden served

them earlier.

She also hard the noise and

wonder what they were

celebrating, she and Leja has

not being talking to each other,

Leja almost slapped her the

other day as she provoked him,

and ever since then she has

being keeping to herself.

anytime she want to ease

herself she inform the guard

station on their door and he

will unlock the cell for her to

go and ease up and return

back, four guards were

stationed around the cell,

where she and Leja was.

Leja called one of the guards to

ask him what the noise was all

about

“Remi has returned with her

diamond child…a son for the

prince…everyone is celebrating

her return…

Leja was stunned, he stood

puzzled, Nike left the food that

she was eating, she quickly lost

her appetite, she turned to Leja

“Remi is dead…she was

banished and she died in the

forest…how come…how

possible is it for her to survive

the forest with wild animals

and return back to the

kingdom with a son for

omooba…I doubt it…that guard

is high on cheap wine…he is

lying…

Leja ignored her as he began to

think of his life whatever that

awaits them, what will be his

fate, he had great fear of the

unknown, Nike wasn’t his

problem and he hates her so

much for making him to be in

such a mess. He silently prayed

to the gods to help him as Nike

kept talking to herself….

Remi was seated with her

happy grandma and excited

Dami, Sipah and Mikai.

Dami collected Ademide from

her back, Remi knelt before her

grandma as the older woman

filled with smile opened her

arm in an embrace and Remi

went and remained there as

her grandma held her like a

child, she released her and

there were tears of joy pouring

from Remi’s eyes. The older

woman wipe the tear from

Remi face and pat her cheek

gently before asking Dami to

bring the little boy.

As grandma carried the boy on

her laps, she smile and gave a

sigh of relief, Remi introduce

Sipah and Mikai to her, and Ore

the monkey was sitting beside

Sipah.

Grandma asked them to come

closer and when they did, she

showered prayer of blessing on

their head in Yoruba dialect,

Sipah and Mikai did not

understand but they joined

everyone to say “Amin” after

they stood up, Mikai felt Dami

looking at her, she look in his

direction but he quickly looked

away shyly.

Mikai smile, as she focused on

the moment. She noticed

Remi’s brother was so homely

and so happy, he wasn’t so tall

but he was good looking and

very shy unlike Remi who is so

bold.

Whenever she found him

looking at her, Dami will look

else where and dodge.

“I thank the gods for their

mercy, welcome home Remi

and my great grandchild, the

seed of crown, birthed in the

forest and brought home to his

great kingdom where he will

mount the throne of the great

men in years to come and

judge wisely and fairly. He will

be the people’s best king….I’m

also glad to have you home

with us Sipah and your

daughter Mikai….feel at home,

thank you once again for all

your kindness, you are indeed

a good man and you are

already blessed… This will be

your home from now on

because you are the answer for

the future generation of this

land…and our monkey frined…

hahahaha, even the animals

took likening to you and guide

you home…what a monkey

with human intelligence…

Ore waves it tail and made a

funny noise as if he was saying

“thank you” which made

everyone to laugh.

Men playing the ganagan

increased the volume and

singing voices went high as

they saw the prince coming

with his guards.

When Remi saw the prince and

every one prostrating, she did

not move from where she sat

in between Sipah and Mikai.

Remi looked at the Prince and

know that Ademide took after

him so much, she noticed that

the prince has slimed down,

and he was counting his every

steps as he move closer to

where she was, she was having

the wrapper she took from him

on her laps, she looked away

from him as he was looking at

her.

The prince went to grandma

and greeted, he looked sty the

boy who look so much as him

in his younger days. He

breathed deeply and smile. He

wanted to touch him but

decided to make peace with

Remi first.

He greeted the man sitting

beside Remi and he responded

warmly, the tall strong man

with a warm smile introduced

himself as Sipah and his

daughter as Mikai.

The prince welcomed them, he

looked at Remi who has refuse

to look at him, he breathed

again and looked back at the

grandma who smiled and

urged him to go ahead

He looked at Sipah as if he was

trying to take permission and

Sipah nodded him forward, the

prince greeted Remi and

thanked her for Returning

home to them, he pleaded for

her forgiveness, for the

injustice done to her but Remi

was sitting acting unconcerned

The older woman spoke

“no wasting time, Omooba you

have all the time to beg my

grand daughter but right now

let’s start with the most

necessary, as you can see they

just returned from a faraway

journey, give her time to rest

and think but most

importantly first thing

tomorrow, the diamond child

will be taken to the palace,

Remi carry him to Oba’s

chamber and allow the Oba to

hold the child’s hand, do the

same for the Queen. Oba is the

ruler of this kingdom and once

the ruler is well again then

every other sick person will get

their healing, the cabinet men

inclusive.

The prince stayed behind until

the evening was turning into

night, he spoke with Sipah on

the forest life, Remi did not

allow him to touch her son but

he was a very patient man, he

knows his sin against Remi was

heavy and he will try to make

it all right. The prince found

out that Sipah does not have

anything to do with Remi in

terms of relationship, it was a

great relief for him as he plan

on what to do to gain Remis’

forgiveness and to win her

back to himself.

Mikai joined Dami in the

kitchen, but Dami was shy and

started blushing

“I came to help you make the

evening food, hope you don’t

mind…please tell me what to

do…

“aaa…ok…ay…there is nothing

much left to do…thank you…

may be you could tell me

about the forest life…

Mikai was happy as she started

telling Dami what her old

environment was like and how

to make an arrow and bow.

The prince asked Sipah and

Mikai to join him in the palace

and they obeyed.
