O.G.B.A.N.J.E (The Child of Thunder)

Chapter 12

“Papa”, Ogbanje began softly “What do you know about my stepmother, your wife Adaku?” Ogbanje asked her father.

They had earlier gone to the farm that sunny morning, had cleared some weeds from the farm and was resting when Ogbanje suddenly brought the topic.

“What do you mean Ada? I don’t understand, biko make me understand”.

“How did you meet her? Where did you see her and what do you know about her?” Ogbanje all asked at once.

Okoro sighed as he look at his daughter who was just so inquisitive.

“It is a long story Ada”. Okoro finally said.

“Then we have the whole day to ourselves papa. I am all ears”.

Okoro looked past beyond Ogbanje and stare off space. He sighed.

“You see Ada, you are the only one who has asked me this question of all my children”. Okoro began as Ogbanje nodded her head in confirmation.

“It all started 21 years ago, when I was betrothed to Adaku”.

“Wait ooh papa, both of you were betrothed? Then where do my mother come in? What happened?” Ogbanje , very shocked to the bone asked.

“One question at a time Ada. Adaku and I were betrothed by our parents when we were just little. We grow up to acknowledge each other as spouses. Well all was moving fine for us until I met your mother. It was like I was seeing the sun for the first time”. Okoro stopped a brief remembering about Chidinma, his late wife.

“And so what happened papa?” Ogbanje asked.
The Child of Thunder 12
“Well, I told my parents about it but they didn’t agree with me. I also told Adaku about my new change of feelings but she remained adamant that I marry her instead of your mother”. Okoro said.

“So how were you able to convince your parents in getting married to my mother?”

“After much threats to my parents about ending my life, they decided to cut off our engagement and pleaded with Adaku’s Parents who were quick to understand to their own understanding, Love should prevail all”. Okoro stopped.

“And so, what happened after that?” Ogbanje asked prompting Okoro to continue.

“Nothing happened. A week to your mother and I traditional marriage, Adaku parents died mysteriously one early morning. They were burnt alive, their huts. Everything about them razed down to ashes. No one know how the fire had started”. Okoro said.

“What about Adaku, where was she when the fire started?”

“She had gone to fetch water from the stream. I had to shift my traditional marriage to bury her parents after all they were once my in laws to be. Two days after their burial, chindinma parents and mine were all mysteriously drown to death and their body wasn’t seen again. What made the four matured people to leave their comfort homes to go to the stream to bath is just mysterious I must admit. Something had pushed them to go to the stream and drown themselves”.
The Child of Thunder 12
“So what happened after that, did you find out the cause of their untimely death”. Ogbanje asked.

“No, all the idbia we visited during that time all have the same message: The gods are silent. Well I got married to my heartthrob finally. We moved out of out village to Udum and settled down here. And since then I haven’t set my eyes on Adaku when I eventually got married to your mother until the day after your mother burial. Old feelings resurfaced again and I got married to her”. Okoro finished saying. “Now you you gotten your answers”, Okoro added.

“But this is strange, how come you never asked her where she was all those years, or was she not married?”

“No she wasn’t. She told me she was patiently waiting for me. And I believed her”.

Ogbanje nodded her head slowly in thought.


“What is this I heard that you went to the land of the mortals, in search of what?” Njoku ji asked Ikenga when he went to his abode.

READ  [Story]O.G.B.A.N.J.E (The Child of Thunder) Chapter 11

“And who told you that?” Ikenga asked.
The Child of Thunder 12
“Whoever that told me is none of your business all I need to know is why you choose to go to the mortal world when you did no wrong. Who have you been seeing?” Njoku ji asked.

“It is none of your business little brother. Don’t provoke me”. Ikenga spat out in anger towards Njoku ji who wasn’t moved neither was he scared of Ikenga’s anger.

“Oh, I shouldn’t provoke you, right? Well we shall see who is more provoked when I tell Amadioha that you are after his wife”. Njoku ji said.

“You have forgotten something so soon brother, Amadioha had been long forgotten?
Ikenga said in mockery. “And he won’t dare to step his foot in here ever again”. Ikenga quickly added.

“Oh really, then go and ask father who visited him today”. Njoku Ji said leaving Ikenga’s presence with his head held up in pride.


“So does it mean I can’t have Ogbanje all to myself?” Obinnwanne asked no one in particular.

He was sitting at the frontage of his hut when all the things the dibias’ have told him came floating in his head.

“What am I going to do now to have Ogbanje all to myself. I must get her and make her my wife by all cost”. Obinnwanne told himself by hitting his palm on his chest.

A plan began drafting a plan.

He knows what to do to. He will plan with his boys to kidnap Ogbanje and bring her to him. After that he would rape her. He will surely rape her so she would see who had raped her and make sure his seeds will be planted inside her. When her father comes to confront him, then and there he would tell Okoro that he would gladly marry Ogbanje unless Okoro wants a bastard as his grandchild.

He smiled. He was sure the plan will work out perfectly.


“You have to give back Alaolisa memories back to her, my queen”. Amadioha said.

READ  O.G.B.A.N.J.E (The Child of Thunder) Chapter 14

“Why do you say so Amadioha?” The queen mother of Ogbanje kingdom asked.
The Child of Thunder 12
“I fear the days ahead would be so tough for her my queen. My immediate younger brother, Ikenga, has shown his interest on my Alaolisa. Without her memories back, I won’t keep on in hiding our true identity from her. Please, restore Alaolisa old memories”. Amadioha pleaded with the Queen Mother.


“I must make sure Ogbanje dies before the next Eke market day. I don’t care if she’s been guarded by any one or not. She must die”.

“Who wants to die Adaku? I only heard ‘She must die’ so who wants to die” Ogbanje asked pretending to hear only the last words she had uttered.

“A irrelevant question you dare to ask me. You want to prove to me how strong you are Ogbanje. But I tell you that I am the wall that will bring you down to where you truly belong”. Adaku said.

“Oh, is that so Adaku, the one who says and they obey. I don’t have anytime for you or for your witches, am simply unstoppable”. Ogbanje told Adaku.

“We shall see Ogbanje who wins this battle”. Adaku whispered to heself


“Father, I was told by Njoku Ji that Amadioha was here”. Ikenga asked Olisa (Chukwu). Bowing down in his presence, the bright light overshadowed the whole place.

“Yes, he was here”.

“For what father”.

“How can you ask me such a question Ikenga. Your brother Amadioha wants to return home”.

“But you know he nearly wiped out your creation in the first place father”.

“Yeah, but that was in the past Ikenga, I would not hold that against him”.

“Stepping his feet here father means war. I am the god of war father, you created like that. I am the god of war Ikenga”.

“And you have forgotten so soon that Amadioha is not your match. With only his mere gaze you would forget you are the god of war”.

PARENTS 3

 

Joe walked around the house having no idea what to do with his baby who has started crying. He slowly lifted the baby and a letter fell off. The letter was addressed to Nathan. Nathan was the name he and Rachael had planned to give their child when they were told they were having a baby boy months before. He couldn’t pay attention to the letter because Nathan was still crying. He placed the note on the chest drawer. Just then his phone rang. He checked the caller, it was Jessy .

Still trying to calm the baby, he held the phone and picked the call.

Hello” he responded

“What’s happening?” Jessy shouted “I can hear a baby crying? Can’t you give it back to the mother? ”

“Oh Jessy ” Joe sighed.. “you have no idea what is happening..my wife left leaving the baby with me and now I have no idea what to do. He won’t stop crying.” He explained..

Jessy laughed. ” You are joking right?” She said. “I’m serious babe I really don’t know what to do”.

After that conversation, that was the last Joe had heard from Jessy. She ignored his calls. She once chased him out of the flat when he went to see her.

“I’m not going to be part of your baby drama ” she had told him.

He struggled and managed to buy the baby milk and hired a nanny to help take care of Nathan. His mother was ill at that time so she could not help him care for the child.

As months passed by Joe had put himself together and decided to be there for his child. Even when he resorted to drinking beer at home. He was there when Nathan started crawing, when he took his first steps until the time he was 3 years old.

Joe’s effort on reaching Rachael and beg her to come back home failed, he tried to contact her relatives but it seemed no one really knew where she had gone. Day and night Joe wished he had acted differently and had put his mind to his marriage. The only comfort he had was the smile of his fast growing son. Nathan was growing fast, full of energy and in good health. Joe’s parents and friends adviced him to marry again. But he told them he wasn’t ready yet.

READ  Has this woman committed sin?

Meanwhile months after Rachael left her son and husband. She refused all her mother’s advice and overtures to go back and mend her home. “If you trully loved your husband and child, you would have looked past the hurt and pains. You would have trusted God to help you. running away isn’t a solution”. Her mother preached.

She never considered going back to her home and with time she started forgetting her husband. Especially after she left Benin and went to work in with an NGO in Lagos. No matter how Rachael created this cloud to cover her past and live normally like a single woman, deep down her heart she missed and longed to be with her husband and child. However she was determined to forge ahead and obliterate her past.

She was lost in thoughts and didn’t realise her boss was standing in front of her well carved wooden office table talking to her.. “I’m sorry Sir” she apologised when he shouted. “Rachael!” He called her, “Did you even hear a word of what I said?” He asked with a look of concern.

Mr Nosa was Racheal’s boss. He was slim and tall. He had set his eyes on Rachael since the first time she joined the organization and he knew from her curriculum vitae that she was single. He couldn’t stop wondering how a beautiful lady was still single at 30. She was good looking and also intelligent. He had invited her a couple of times for dinner but she seemed not so interested in him..

Nosa was not however willing to give up. He vowed to crack the wall that Rachael had built around her and win her heart.

READ  [Story]MISTAKES OF MY PARENTS EPISODE 3

So here he was looking at her silently lost in thoughts. He had called her twice but she didn’t move an inch..

“Oh am so Sorry Nosa ” she stood up. “I was just…”

“Yeah I noticed ” Nosa cut her sentence.

“I was asking if you are leaving soon. Am heading out and I can drop you off if you don’t mind, I mean since your car is still at the garage” he said.

Rachael smiled at him. ” Thank you, you are so kind.” Nosa moved closer to her and held her hand. “You know I like you and am just waiting for the time you will give me a chance and let me in your heart.”

Racheal sighed. “I’m sorry Nosa, I don’t think am ready for any man right now, we can just be friends nothing more.”

Nosa felt a grip of disapointment but decided to play it cool. “Sure”. He said letting her hand free. ” Let me know when you are through, I will be in my office” he said and walked out of her office.

Rachael watched him disappear in the passage. She shook her head and sighed.. recalling the exciting times with Joe. she felt pain in her heart and as the tears started dropping, she quickly placed a small piece of tissue under her eyes and wipped the tears. “I’m done crying for you Joe” she whispered. Adding a little makeup on her face she stood up head high and walked confidently to Nosa’s office with a grey handbag which matched her grey skirt.

“Am ready!” she announced as she entered Nosa’s office.

“Okay” he responded, picking up the car keys and briefcase. “Let’s go then”

Reaching her home Rachael invited Nosa in. “What can I offer you?” she asked as she motioned him to sit on her cream white couch.” Nosa admired the clean and nicely arranged room. He turned on the flat screen TV mounted on the wall as he waited for her.. She had disappeared to another room.

READ  [Story]O.G.B.A.N.J.E (The Child of Thunder) Chapter 11

Rachael came back with a glass of water he had requested and handed it to him. She sat opposite him as they started chatted.

All the time as Nosa talked and narrated events of his past, Rachael nodded and smiled. She had said nothing about her past. All she had talked about was her work life in Benin and Asaba and also her family. Nosa had no idea that the woman sitting in front of him had abandoned her marriage and her baby.

What had started as a simple friendship developed into intimate relationship over the months.

Nosa proposed to Rachael and they got married a year later.

Rachael didn’t expect much from Nosa. She accepted to marry him just to get rid of all the pain she had suffered from her marriage to Joe. However, Nosa was not as she thought he would turn out to be. He was a wonderful and caring husband, he didn’t change as Rachael anticipated he would. His love for her was genuine. He showed lot’s of patience even when his wife showed little interest in the marriage.

Years passed and Rachael slowly started falling in love with Nosa. She woke up one night and found him praying.

“Lord please let my wife open up and love me. I dont know what has caused this wall around her but I trust you can brake it and give her back her peace and freedom”

Rachael watched him as he prayed and felt a guilt within her. All she had done is give the man who genuinely loved her a hard time. From that day she decided to forget about Joe and live happily with her husband.

She knelt close to him and he looked at her when he opened his eyes. ” I love you.” She whispered. “And I’m sorry I have not been a good wife to you. I promised to be that woman of your dream.”

Nosa hugged his wife joyfully. That was the begining of their happy marriage.

“Now Ogbanje will know that, I, Adaku, I am not someone to toy with” Adaku boasted as she kept the calabash where she had brought it out from. “Soon the news of what happened to Ogbanje will spread like wild fire and Ebuka would be stoned to death” she added as she made her way out of her hut.

As she opened it to step out of the hut, she quickly gave out a loud shout and fell to the ground writhing in severe pains.

The black scorpion had bitten her in her left leg. As soon as it bit her, the black scorpion disappeared.

Adaku quickly stood up with the pain going through her body, she ignored it in as she walked in pain back inside her hut.

It was the black scorpion which she had earlier sent to Ebuka.

She quickly picked a black Kolanut and chewed a little bit out of it. The pains subsided immediately. But the injury which the black scorpion had inflicted on her had suddenly appeared to mould into a wound growing steadfast. She spat into the wound, causing it to ceased in it’s sudden growth. But the pains caused by the wound still remained. Spreading the pains through that leg.

Why had the Scorpion bit her when she told it to cause a conflict between Ebuka and Ogbanje but it came back to her instead.

‘Has Ogbanje powers grow enormously that my powers are no match for her?’ Adaku thought as she sat down on her bamboo bed, thinking hard.

“No! Ogbanje powers can never be stronger than mine. I will kill Ogbanje and her useless father even if it is the last thing I do” Adaku poured, beating her breast with her palm as she demonstrated her seriousness.

“After what Okoro put me through I can’t let go easily, I have promised my daughter. I made a promise to her to kill Ogbanje and her father before Ogbanje reaches her twentieth (20th). The year is fast approaching an end and yet I have not been able to kill neither of them. I had even gone to meet my great grandmother for more powers and still I can’t kill Okoro” she pondered.

“I can’t continue like this. The days that I have been given are being numbered. I have to go and see my daughter. I have to go and see her and convince her” Adaku said as stretched out the leg with the wound and started massaging it.


On her way home she met with the old woman whom she usually assist in house chores.

Hissing so loudly so the old woman could hear it and continued her way without greeting her or throwing her a look at all.

The old woman seemed surprised and shocked with the way Ogbanje did.

“My daughter”, the old woman began halting Ogbanje in her footsteps. “What is it or didn’t you see me when you passed by? I know you did no see me that is why you did not greet me. Any way my daughter I have been wondering why I haven’t been seeing you since the last few days. You know you ought to come to house at Eke day but you didn’t come and I have been searching for you. What happened?”. She interrogated.

Ogbanje turned to face the old woman.

“I don’t have what they call ‘Time’ to answer those stupid questions of yours”, seeing a more surprise look on the face of the old woman Ogbanje continued.

“I know that you and Adaku are witch and please this should be the first and last time you’d see me and stop me. I am only telling you because you know me, you know what I can do. No wonder you are like this. You ate all your children and you are not even ashamed you are like this, Shameless woman” Ogbanje lambasted her, hissed and left.

“She knew? How?” the old woman thought.


“What happened to you my son?” Omekannaya asked his son Obinnwanne.

He had gone to his mother home for an important business when he got his son’s message. But got the shock of his life when he saw his son two cheeks were swollen.

“Papa, nothing” Obinnwanne managed to speak amidst with pains in his mouth. In fact, the whole part of his mouth and head were in pains.

Ever since the strange young man that slapped him left, his cheeks had grown and the pains was unbearable.

“Nothing? I don’t believe you at all. Who did you provoke that put you in this condition?” Omekannaya questioned his son.

“I have told you papa that I did not do anything. Please go and find any Idbia man to help me stop this pain” Obinnwanne requested.

Omekannaya quickly left his son in search for a powerful Idbia.


Papa what is wrong with your wife?” Ogbanje asked Okoro as she was surprised to see Adaku limping on her right foot. She sat down on the mat her children had already laid out for her at the frontage of her own hut to sit down. She was rubbing a concoction oil Okoro had given her to use.

“I don’t know Ada. We came back from the farm only to meet her walking like that when I asked her what happened she said something had bitten her but she didn’t know what bit her” Okoro explained.

She knew what Adaku had done and silently laughed at her. Adaku deserve more than this.

“Only the gods knows what might have bitten her to have caused such a wound”. Okoro added as he and Ogbanje stared at Adaku, one in pity and the other one in happiness.

“Ehm papa since she can’t walk properly I should start preparing for dinner”.

“Yes, but call your sisters to assist you. I don’t want to see you alone in that kitchen. Make sure Ugochi and Uzochi are there with you”. Okoro said.


Ebuka was clearing the farm when he felt the presence of Ikenga within the farmland.

He had told his mother to take the day off with his younger siblings that he would go to the farm to plant the maize for them.

After planting the maize without delay he quickly started clearing off the weeds that had grown round some of their crops.

It was at this moment he felt his presence.

He continued never the less pretending he didn’t notice his presence. After all, to Ikenga he was just an ordinary human to him.

He laughed sheepishly as he continued his clearing.

“I don’t know what my Ada sees in you that would make her fell in love with you rather than me” Ikenga muttered.

Ebuka almost jumped out of his skin in pretense. He pretended to be surprise on seeing the young man who stood in front of him.

“Who are you and how did you get to this place without my notice? How did you manage to walk up to me without noise?” Ebuka feigned as he asked.

“How I came to be here is not your business, I only came here with a warning to stay away from my Ada if not you will face my wrath” Ikenga threatened.

Ebuka burst out into laughter

“I am sorry stranger but you see in Udum we have plenty families who has an Ada in each of every home here, maybe you are mistaken your Ada for mine” Ebuka replied bravely

“Do not take me for a fool. You and I know the Ada I am talking about. I am only here to warn you to stay off her”

“Oh are you talking about my Adaolisa?”

“Exactly”

“Sorry to say this Ikemefuna but she is mine and will forever remain mine. I should be the one warning you to stay off from my Adaolisa and not the other way round. If I ever hear from my heart that you stopped her or even talk to her again, you will see the other side of me. Ya mere ọ bụrụ na ị maara ihe ọma gị onwe gị Ikemefuna Nọrọ na ya ma ọ bụ na ị na-eche ihu m iwe. Chee okwu m- so if you know what is good for you Ikemefuna stay away from her or face my wrath. Mark my words”. Ebuka replied Ikemefuna.

Ikemefuna smirked and nodded his head at Ebuka. “I like your courage but you don’t know who you are talking to..”.

Ebuka interrupted quickly “And I don’t care to know who you are. You also don’t know who I am. I am not afraid of you or your threats”. Ebuka fired back as he bent and continued with his works.

“I see you have the guts to talk back at me. We shall see who laugh last”. Ikemefuna said and he disappeared.

“I don’t know what really happened but I was enraged and nearly wiped out the entire universe. So I left my home to dwell among mortals for the time being. Actually to be away from my father till he becomes calm. Within that time frame, I was forgotten and no one ever remembered me. They only remember my brothers. I roamed for so many years, so many years that I forgot who I was. Well that was until I met you” Ebuka said as he stares at his Alaolisa.

“So what happened after that?”

“Well, we fell in love and got married but you decided to live with the mortals for a while. Your mother granted you your wish but with a prize that you would not remember who you were once. I decided to go down with you to look after you and protect you from harm” Ebuka said as he concluded his story.

“I don’t know what to say Ebuka! This is too much for me” Ogbanje said suddenly.

“I know that Alaolisa, but you will come to embrace it with time” Ebuka replied. He thought as he had opened up, Ogbanje would have told him by now that she wanted some space from him. But he was surprised when Ogbanje did non. She seemed okay with it.

“Was Alaolisa the name I bear in my previous life?” Ogbanje asked.

“Yes, but there are more”

“More? How did you mean?” Ogbanje asked flummoxed.

“You know I have two brothers, Njoku ji is the last son of my father and the second son, Ikenga. I am the first son of my father ChuckwuOlisa”

“What has that got to do with the question I just asked you?”

“A lot Ada, a lot! You see Ada mu, that young man that has been approaching you since these past few days…”

“The one who said he is from Umueze? The one whose name is Ikemefuna? What about him” Ogbanje interrupted him, eagerly.

Ebuka nodded his head in agreement to the questions asked.

“Yes Ikemefuna. That young man is not who he said he is” his head bowed.

“Meaning?”

“He is my brother, Ikenga. He had pick his interest on you and want to make you his queen by all cost” Ebuka unveiled the truth to Ogbanje.

“Ikemefuna is Ikenga? The Ikenga that we all served? Why would he pick his interest on me of all people?”

“That is what I don’t know Ada. There might be something he sees in you that made him to choose you and want you by all means” Ebuka explained.

“Are you trying to say he sees me as someone in memory of or what?”

“Maybe, or he likes you naturally. Either way, I am not going to let him have you. He will have to go through me to get you”

Ogbanje laughed out with her face beaming with smiles.

“I don’t like Ikemefuna or Ikenga- whatever he is, one bit. Right from day one, I had dislike that young man. I am only in love with you Ebuka and nothing and nobody can change my heart towards you”. Ogbanje assured him as she blushed.

Ebuka smiled when he heard those words.

“You are the only lady in my heart my Alaolisa”

Ogbanje laid her head on the shoulder blade of Ebuka and smiled at him.

A movement suddenly caught the attention of Ebuka.

He stood up and suddenly grabbed it.

It was a Scorpion.

Very black and huge one.

Ebuka held it on one hand and looked at it.

“This scorpion had been sent to turn you against me”.
Ogbanje said after a while.

“Hmm, then we have to send it back to sender” Ebuka said and brought the scorpion closer to his mouth. He whispered something slowly and freed it.

It moved swiftly and faster out of their sight going back to where it came out from.

“What did you say to it?” Ogbanje interrogated as she saw how the scorpion moved as quick as lightening. The scorpion was no where in sight.

“Nothing much Ada. I only told the scorpion to inflict its owner with pains but not death”

“I think I should be heading home now. My father might have returned and I don’t want him to ask Adaku where I went. You know she would lie about where I was” Ogbanje said as she also stood up to face Ebuka.

“It’s okay my Ada. Wait let me arrange here So that I can escort you home”

“Don’t worry Ebuka, that won’t be necessary, you know I can protect myself and besides I know you’d watch over me” Ogbanje replied.

“Okay, I will visit you tomorrow” Ebuka promised.

“And I will be expecting you”. Ogbanje said and made to turn when Ebuka grabbed of one of her hands, halting her movement. He turned her to face him once again.

“How can I let you go just like that”

Ogbanje frowned in confusion. When she looked into his eyes once again, his expression was intense.

“I don’t get what you are saying…..”.

He suddenly drew her to him and covered her mouth with his in a hungry kiss.

She responded immediately. She found herself closing up her eyelids. His mouth was so warm, the caress of his lips soft than she could have imagined.

He tasted tentatively with his tongue, and Ogbanje opened her mouth with a low moan. Ebuka gently pulled Ogbanje closer, his hands encircle round ogbanje as she moaned in pleasure, pressing her soft body against his hard skin. Her hands roaming round the exposed skin of Ebuka.

They didn’t care they stood outside, not caring if they were seen by any villagers. What matters now was how they felt together. How they were both fit.

Ebuka slided one of his hands down to Ogbanje round butt, squeezing it and pressing it harder.

Ogbanje felt his hard erection hitching her laps.

Ebuka moan deeply and dispatched himself from Ogbanje when he couldn’t hold his breath anymore.

Ogbanje was breathless when Ebuka removed his mouth from hers

Placing his hands on her cheeks he smiled .

Ogbanje smiled at him also but averted her eyes to the sole of his feet.

“I am not in a haste Ada but I am not patient”. He moves closer to her again. depositing a quick kiss on her forehead as Ogbanje eyes fluttered close. Ebuka dispatched himself from her and move a few feets backwards. “You have to go home now Ada. Like I said I will see you tomorrow my Love. Take care my Alaolisa” Ebuka added as he stared at Ogbanje lustfully.

Ogbanje blushed as she waved at Ebuka and turned to go.

“Take care also my Love. Can’t wait to see you tomorrow” Ogbanje quickly left not daring to look back as she knew that Ebuka was watching her.


“You again”. Ogbanje said as she looked at Ikemefuna (Ikenga) who was standing in front of her.

She had been so engrossed with the kiss she and Ebuka had shared earlier. she hadn’t taken notice of Ikemefuna (Ikenga) standing and obstructing her path. Her body collided with his and she was about falling down when she felt strong hands holding her waist, keeping her from falling down.

The hands lifted her and she turned to thank whosoever that had prevented her fall when she saw Ikemefuna (Ikenga) was the one holding her waist.

She quickly moved away from him as if he had leprosy.

“Yes me. I saved you from falling down, the least you could do is to thank me” Ikemefuna (Ikenga) requested with pride.

“If I had known it was you I would have gladly make the ground so proud by my fall”

“And have injuries with your delicate skin. Mbanu- No” Ikemefuna (Ikenga) said smiling but stopped when his sharp nose caught something. Sniffing at Ogbanje he became angry .

“You flirts with that stupid boy Ada. He touched you didn’t he?” Ikemefuna (Ikenga) asked angrily.

“What sort of stupid question is that? Are you high or something? Who Are you to ask me such a question?” Ogbanje charged at Ikemefuna (Ikenga).

“Your future husband in fact your husband. This should be the last time I will see you go near that mere boy you called your lover. I am warning you, stay clear off from that boy or else, he won’t live to see the next Eke market day. Don’t push me to the wall Ada. You are mine, you will be mine and you are forever mine” Ikemefuna (Ikenga) warned.

Ogbanje laughed out loud as she clapped her hands in surprised.

“Ehm Ikemefuna, this should be the first and last time you would ever stop me to talk about this rubbish you just vomited from that stupid mouth of yours ever again. Try me again and you won’t like what I would do to you” Ogbanje lashed at Ikemefuna (Ikenga) furiously.

“You don’t know who you are talking too. Do not, I repeat, do not ever go close to that stupid boy again or he will face my wrath” Ikemefuna (Ikenga) said but suddenly smiled at Ada.

“How was your day Ada?” He added.

Ogbanje hissed and walked pass him pushing him in process as she walked by him.

Ikenga smiled looking at Ogbanje in a lustful way. Watching the movement of her backside.

“I must have you Ada by all cost. If I can’t have you then no one else can” Ikenga boasted, still smiling till he could no longer see Ogbanje shadow. And he vanished.
