Where is she?’ Tony asked immediately he saw Rhoda coming down alone.
‘erm oga. She talk sey…she said she is not coming down. She say i mean said i should prepare another food for her’ Rhoda said.
‘did you tell her i was the one who cooked the food?’ Alice asked.
‘yes. That was what made her…..’
‘its okay, i understand. What did she say she wants? I want to prepare it personally for her’ Alice said.
‘ah madam, its like you want me to die. She…dont want to eat any food you cooked at all’
Alice looked down as tears formed a pool in her eyes. Tony noticed it and dismissed Rhoda. Then he pulled her into his arms.
‘dont worry babe, we can still enjoy dinner without Maria’ Tony said.
Alice shook her head ‘you dont understand. What have i done to Maria? I dont understand. When i told her about this pregnancy, you know what she told me? She said i should abort it can you imagine?’
Tony twisted his lips in anger ‘dont worry Alice. She will come around. Just give her sometime’
‘sometime? When? When will that sometime expire?’
‘you see, Maria was so attached to her mother before she died and she has been finding it difficult to forget about her. Even though eleven years has passed’ Tony explained.
‘there’s nothing i want now than making Maria love me. I’d do anything for it’ Alice said.
Rhoda knocked on Maria’s door few minutes later informing her that her own dinner was ready.
‘is that witch and my father downstairs?’ Maria asked.
‘i wonder why harlots find it difficult to return to their parents’ house even when its past 8pm. Even though i was six then, i can still remember mum telling me never to stay out late unless i’m gonna spend the night un that place. Oh! There’s no one like my mum’
Rhoda shook her head.
Oversabi. Na who ask you? Mumu. Na only chop i say make you con chop oo, no be for you to start to dey remind me how your mama take good abi how she take no good, mumu.
‘erm, what about the food?’ Rhoda asked.
‘bring it here for me’ Maria said and Rhoda immediately left.
Maria had just finished dinner when she heard a knock on her door. She thought it was her dad but she was really very angry to see Alice.
‘so you are spending the night here? Alice or whatever you call yourself, dont you have any shame or home training? Didnt your mother warn you against spending the night with someone who is not your husband? Anyways, thats how you got yourself pregnant. If your mum had given you enough training then…..’
‘please please, i didnt come here for this. I came here for us to discuss like reasonable people’
‘have you come to bewitch me the way you bewitched my dad? See idiot oo. See, let me warn you for the very last time. Terminate that pregnancy and stay away from my dad, if you dont terminate that d–n pregnancy, i will willingly be of help’
‘just get out of my room, you s–t!’
