    “Ekaro Mami…the Oba’s men
    are here… they brought a
    message from The
    Oba…
    “Haaa, hope all is well…
    “I hope so Mami, they are
    probably here to remind us
    about the first moon
    light dance where the princess
    will chose a personal maid and
    two attendant
    for herself…
    The woman took her wrapper
    and tied around her waist
    before going outside
    to attend to the men.
    Remi went to the kitchen and
    picked up her water Calabash,
    she called her
    younger brother to join her so
    that they can go to the stream,
    she has
    wished to hear what the king’s
    men came for but she needed
    to fetch water
    for the house and also for her
    grandmother who lives not too
    far from them.
    One of the king’s chief guard
    who has picked interest in her
    was among the
    men that came to the house,
    she wanted to avoid him
    seeing her,
    Despite he has made his
    intentions known to her in the
    last festive dance, he
    has walked up to her after the
    dance
    “You are beautiful and you
    dance well too, my name is
    Leja, I’m the Chief
    guard here…
    “Thank you Leja, my name is
    Remi…Oluwarem
    ilekun, that’s my full name…
    “Remi, that’s a beautiful name,
    is that your sister…I mean the
    girl you came
    in with… she’s not much of a
    good dancer, maybe you can
    teach her…or she
    won’t be able to participate in
    the next festive dance…
    “Her name is Nike, she’s my
    step sister…I will teach her,
    please don’t
    exclude her from the list of
    maidian who will dance next
    season…
    “Alright, I won’t if only you will
    teach her to be a good dancer
    like you
    are…I like you Remi…can I get
    to see you tomorrow evening
    under the oak
    tree close to the market
    place…I will be there waiting
    for you…
    “Sorry Leja, I can’t, I’m not
    allowed to keep male friends
    for now, Mami
    said there’s time for everything
    and the time for me to start
    keeping male
    friends has not come yet…
    “Okay Remi, I respect your
    wishes, I will patiently wait
    until you are ready…
    just don’t forget that some one
    cares deeply for you and don’t
    fail to let me
    know if you need anything…
    “That’s so kind of you Leja,
    goodbye..
    Nike has refused to talk with
    her on there way home
    because of Leja, as
    they got closer to the house,
    Nike turned to Remi angrily
    “Who do you even think you
    are, because everyone was
    cheering at you at
    the dance floor you decided to
    go and sell yourself to Leja, I
    liked him first
    before you but he didn’t even
    look at me when I was dancing
    rather his eyes
    was on you… you know I like
    him yet you went there to
    seduce him so that
    you can have him… you and
    your witch mother plan….
    “Shhhh… don’t call Mami a
    witch, leave her out of this,
    Nike, you can
    become a good dancer if only
    you can come and practice
    with me, I will
    teach you some good steps,
    and as for Leja… I’m not
    interested in him… I
    have no interest in him at all, I
    have made that known to him
    already… you
    must not be bitter all the time
    Nike…
    They were still talking when
    Nike saw her mother coming, it
    was a good
    opportunity for her to impress
    her mother who usually tell
    her to attack
    Remi, and she should not allow
    Remi to win her in anything
    Nike suddenly slapped Remi
    who was still talking, Remi
    held her cheek in
    shock, Nike did not stop there
    she started raining insultive
    words at Remi,
    who stood and wondered
    what she did wrong.
    When Nike mother walked up
    to them, Remi was about to
    complain to her
    about her daughter’s behavior
    but the woman hushed her to
    keep quiet
    “Nike my daughter, can not
    just attack you, when she’s not
    mad, you and
    your witch mother has always
    been jealous of me and my
    daughter, that
    was how she bewitched my
    husband and made him to love
    her more than
    me, is a good thing he ended
    up in the grave, the gods
    fought for us and
    stroke him dead because he
    was displeasing me to please
    your wicked
    mother, let me tell you
    something… no matter what
    you people do The gods
    eyes is on us I will surely win,
    Nike Will always be ahead of
    you no matter
    what..you and your mother
    will not succeed. daughter of a
    witch…

    She and her daughter walked
    away, leaving Remi standing
    When Remi got home she
    complained to her mother
    “I don’t understand why they
    always see us as enemy, we
    are not in any
    competition with them, when
    your Baba was alive he does
    everything
    equally, if he buys one wrapper
    for me he will also buys one
    wrapper for
    her, he tried not to show
    favoritism to any one of us yet
    she was never
    satisfied…iya Nike will see her
    daughter doing wrong but will
    not call her to
    order… you were born in the
    month of (August) while Nike
    came after a
    month, (month of October) so
    by right you are her elder
    sister… for
    everything they have been
    doing to us (God will judge).
    Remi remembered her last
    fight with Nike as she walked
    along the bush path
    with her brother, her Calabash
    was placed safely on her head
    as she greeted
    other women coming from the
    stream that morning, she has
    tried to avoid
    Nike and her mother ever since
    their last fight, Remi who
    always listen to
    her mother’s advice has kept to
    herself and kept away from all
    trouble.
    “E ku aaro, (morning greetings)
    please hope all is well
    my name is Leja, peace be unto
    your household, greetings from
    the king we
    are going round the whole
    village, reminding people of
    the coming first moon
    dance, where the princess will
    chose her personal maidian…
    please info your
    daughter to be at the palace on
    time that day because the
    event will be
    starting early in the morning…
    (thank you)
    (Thank you ma)
    They turned and went to the
    next house belonging to iya
    Nike and knocked,
    Nike who has being watching
    Leja speak to iya Remi (Remi’s
    mother) from
    the window with her mother
    gets more angry with every
    minute that passes,
    she was relived as Leja
    approached their hut, she
    quickly ran out of The
    house but Leja did not pick
    interest in her he just greeted
    them and gave
    them the message, as he tried
    to leave iya Nike said to him
    “Leja, oko mi..se daadaa ni o
    wa? (Leja my husband, hope
    you are fine)
    “Mo wa daadaa…ese. (am fine,
    thank you)
    “Sometimes, you can come and
    visit us. My daughter is fond of
    you, you are
    strong and the gods blessed
    you with good look, I also hard
    that you have
    acquired another large plot of
    land close to the steam…you
    are doing well for
    yourself…not all Young men of
    this land are well doing as you
    are…you have
    the Oba’s ear…
    “The piece of land was giving
    to me by the Oba, after I saved
    the prince
    from drawning at the oku river
    where he went to swim, I
    didn’t acquire the
    land rather it was a gift but I
    appreciate your kind gesture..
    “So a whole “omo oba” (king’s
    son) can not swim, that’s
    unfortunate…
    thanks to the gods that you
    were there to save him… what
    do you say to
    my request of coming around…
    “I will, on one condition…if
    Remi will be around and agree
    to sit beside me,
    then I will honor your request,
    … and by the way Remi is a
    very good
    dancer, I asked her to teach her
    sister, Nike some fine moves
    that is the only
    way Nike will be selected
    among the palace maidians…
    she need to start
    practicing now with Remi…
    before the said day arrives…
    where’s Remi, I
    have not seen her around..
    “You should have asked her
    mother where she sent her to…
    she sometimes
    send her out to go and give
    herself to other men just for
    them to have food,
    she can even sells her daughter
    for a loaf of bread. (believe me)
    they are not
    what they appear to be.
    (that’s not true) but not
    withstanding maybe I should
    bring some money for
    them since that’s the reason
    Remi goes to meet other men,
    if I give them
    enough money they will have
    enough food… that’s what i will
    do. (have a
    nice day, good bye)
    He walked out, leaving them
    standing and wondering what
    kind of man he
    was
    “You shouldn’t have told him
    that iya mi, it will seem like we
    hate them and
    that will push me far away
    from Leja, I don’t want that…
    now look at what
    you caused, they have gotten
    undeserved money from Leja,
    that money that
    Leja intend to give them was
    suppose to be ours if you have
    acted well…
    “You are right (my daughter) i
    acted without thinking but
    don’t worry we will
    still win, from now onward just
    play along with Remi, pretend
    to be sorry
    and tell her to teach you the
    dance, because Leja said that’s
    your only way
    to the palace so do everything
    you can do to enter there…
    Leja came back and gave
    Remi’s mother money but the
    woman rejected it,
    Leja pleaded to her to accept it
    if not for anything but for her
    children, Remi
    and her brother, he did not tell
    the woman what Nike’s
    mother said, he kept
    pleading until she finally took
    it
    Few days later Nike came to
    Remi and pretended to be
    sorry as she ask
    Remi to teach her how to
    dance and Remi was glad to do
    that
    They kept practicing every day,
    non stop as Remi tried to make
    sure that
    Nike gets the dance moves
    Right but Nike was a slow
    leaner and it was
    difficult teaching her but Remi
    was determined to make her
    get itll
    The day finally came and Remi
    prepared early in the morning
    and left with
    Nike to the palace
    They arrived on time with
    other young girls and boys, the
    dance floor was
    getting crowded as more
    people kept coming,
    They later changed into their
    dance costumes.
    Remi took Nike to one corner
    and asked her if she still
    remember all the
    dance moves, she told her how
    to throw her legs and waist
    and how to
    Master all the move
    The king’s only son was
    looking out from his window
    and saw two girls
    practicing their dance moves,
    he picked interest in one, she
    was beautiful and
    a good dancer as she teaches
    her second some dance steps,
    he doesn’t know
    who the young beautiful girl is
    but he was determined to find
    out.
    After the dance he Will ask
    Leja, who seem to know
    everyone, who the girl
    may be.
    When Remi and Nike was
    returning to the dance floor
    Leja saw them and
    came to Remi
    “E jowo Remi, (excuse me)ikini
    irele mi (my kind greetings to
    you)
    He walked to a quiet place
    with her leaving Nike to join
    others, Nike was
    really angry as Leja took Remi
    away, jealousy was written all
    over her but
    she tried not to show it as she
    smile and walked away.
    Leja kept on greeting Remi
    with full smile on his face
    “Ko ye mi… (I don’t understand)
    is there a problem… Hope we
    are not in any
    trouble with this your early
    morning greetings…
    “Ra ra o (not at all) I just
    wanted to wish you luck and
    to tell you that you
    are beautiful and hope you still
    have me in mind concerning
    my request…or
    maybe we will talk about it
    after the dance….yoo dara o
    (good luck)
    “Ese… thank you.
    She walked back to join the
    others, the prince saw Leja
    talking with her
    from his chamber window, he
    wondered what Leja was
    telling her
    No one has ever caught his
    attention like The strange girl
    did, it wasn’t
    because of her beauty alone
    but there was something else
    about her and he
    was determined to find out.
    it was a good thing that Leja
    knows her, getting to her
    won’t be difficult
    because Leja will help him out
    with her every detail.

    Clear Difference

    Remi kind heart and fabulous attitude is what makes the difference between her and nike who is looking like the worst bitter angry girl with no respect.
