mum sat down immediately the monk came in
I felt so uncomfortable, this particular monk looks different . he’s black and looks scary,same time powerful
blacks are always powerful,
I tried kicking against it when dad had intend inviting a monk from Africa but mum rebuff me,cause she can’t wait to see her beloved son get into her hands again
let’s see how it goes then,
the monk sat on a spread cloth and looked down on it
he kept his eyes shut for a while and finally opened it.
his lips kept moving like he was talking but words didn’t come out of it, not even a sound
I strained my ears to listen but couldn’t
he looked around the royal room his eyes fell on dad who was watching him with rapt attention then it moved to mum who was sobbing silently he took his eyes to mine and I took my eyes away from his.
he’s lucky he’s a monk,I would have slit his throat for staring straight into my eyes
he took his eyes from mine and place it on Kyle’s bride Karen, who seems to be snivelling with a tired expression on her face
what’s this feeling?
don’t tell me she and kyle had been getting along?
she look sick and worried
have seen then together at the pool, back then in the ita festival but that doesn’t mean they are getting along right?
the monk kept his eyes fixed on Karen,who wasn’t sparing him a glance.
he took his eyes back to the clothe he sat on and took his eyes back to the king
“there is a remedy”he cooed and all eyes shone
are you serious?
like for real?”mum asked anxiously and dad eyes beam with happiness and Karen looked up at the monk expectantly
what the hell !!
how did it happened?
the silver arrow has no remedy and it’s suppose to make him dead how come he fell into a deep sleep? and now there’s a remedy for it?
what the hell !!
how can Kyle be so powerful than I?
f**k this goddamn monk.
I should have tried all I could to stop him from getting here…..I should have”I murmured in anger
I was already going gob smack
“tell us noble one, tell us what we need to do to bring my son back”mum rasp even before dad could speak up
“the remedy lies with her”the monk said gesturing at Karen and my breath seized
me? how?”Karen spoke up for the first time, fear surprise and confusion were evident in her voice.
“she’s his bride isn’t she?”he asked and mum nodded
“she must lie with his corpse,only then and there will he open his eyes”he said and a thick silence engulf the room
I shrink when I heard those words from the monk
all eyes turned to me and I fidgeted
I will do anything for Kyle
I will try
“be more clearer noble one,we bare lost”the king said and the monk looked up again
I didn’t even noticed
“the remedy states that his bride must make out with his corpse,he will open his eyes when her body comes in contact with his” the monk said and I gasp
have s*x with his corpse?
is that the only remedy?
the Queens eyes bore into mine, fear and pleading was evident in it
I took my eyes away and stare at my fingers
“everything will be fine and back to normal if she’s still a virgin, but if she’s not,one of them will have to die during the intimacy”the monk said and my lungs turned dry
tell me it’s a dream!
like it’s not real…

oh! God am dying
my legs seems heavy
oh! God can I do this?
can I do this for Kyle?

“kyle am sorry I just can’t do it” I found myself crying
sky stood up and left immediately
the quern turned towards me
“kyle has done it already
hasn’t he?”she whispered into my ears and I nodded with tears all over my face
the queen kept shut and began weeping
“isn’t there another remedy?”the king asked the monk
“no my Lord”he replied and began
packing up his bags
I stood up and began walking out of the royal room,heading upstairs to my room
I need to pack my bags,I need to sneak out
I hop into a cab immediately I couldn’t even use a ride in the palace,I couldn’t even pack all my stuffs
i was scared the king might stop me if he finds me and the Queen will turn sober if she finds out
I need to sneak out and luckily I did.
I just don’t know where to go

“lemme flag a cabby, so we can get there in a jiffy”she offered
“nope! Nita …..let’s get going”I said trying to sound as convincing as I can
“don’t tell me that Karen!

the cabby came to a stop and we alighted from it and I paid the cabby then he drove off
we got into a small compound, it has no gate and a small garage with two cars parked inside.
the house was more like a duplex and it looks really beautiful
but what’s mum doing here?
is this her new house?
“this is my boyfriends house” she said like she read my thoughts
“woah! it’s beautiful, is he the one you told me about?”i asked and she nodded blushing real hard
“do you live here? alongside my mum?”I asked and she smiled
“yeah! your mum couldn’t concentrate on her business cause of you and everything began going down the drain,I tried helping but couldn’t cause clause had no idea of a business
she got duped and everything got lost,not until my boyfriend took it upon himself to cater for us and we all moved in here”she said and i forced a smile and walked in
“mum!” i called on sighting her lay on a couch
omg! my baby”mum cried and I rushed into her arms
“omg! I miss you mum!
your still I’m Egypt and couldn’t bother to look for me mum!”I cried and she cried too
“Karen it isn’t what you think, there isn’t a day I don’t think of you Karen,there isn’t!”she cried more
omg! she looks emaciated what happened to her?
“mum!”I called and she stared at me,her eyes filled with happiness and love
“what happened to you?
you look sick”I said and she gave me a wry smile
“all thanks to Nita, I would have been long dead”she said and I gasp
“thoughts off you was what filled my heart and I think am beginning to regain myself”mum said and I smile out tears
“how about kyle
I couldn’t attend your wedding cause my health restrained me
hope he’s taking care of you?”she said and it only brought tears to my eyes
the condition of Prince kyle was hidden from the public,right now I don’t know if I should tell mum
she’s my mum and deserved to know right?
I narrated everything to her and she kept shut
“and you think eloping his the best idea?”she asked
“am confused mum!
I love Kyle mum, I just don’t know how to express it, am forsaking him
am neglecting him mum!
he loves me, kyle loves me mum!”I cried and Nita consoled me
“in as much as I won’t like to say this Karen,
go back to him Karen,he’s your husband
go back and let love lead you”mum said and I couldn’t help the tears
“what if I die mum! or what if he dies!
we can’t bare to lose each other”I cried again
“then the both of you died for love”mum said and I cried the more
“mum! what does dad has to do with me being betrothed to kyle?”I asked and she frowned
“your father was damn greedy,that is greed led him into committing treason against the king and he was sentence to death,he tried escaping but died in a plane crash,as such his punishment was transfered to you.
then I was pregnant with you
the lot that was cast showed that if the baby happens to be a son,he will be hanged to death
but if the baby is a girl,she will get married to the king first son,who’s suppose to make you suffer
but it seems destiny changed and you guys ended up falling in love
am really surprised”she said and I gasp sitting on a sofa
“that means…. uhh!”that feeling came again and I stood up,one hand on my tummy and the other on my mouth
“this way”Nita cooed taking me to the rest room
“Karen!!”mum called in surprise
