It’s been long the king made love, he needs someone to make love to, he observed all the mermaid they were not as cute as he want, he want a beautiful wife that will give birth to beautiful children for him….
He had misunderstanding with his wife the queen of water
The queen of water was angry with the king, she decided to divide the mermaid among themselves, some mermaid followed the queen while some followed the king…..
So the king decided to take another wife who will also become the queen, “I need a wife” he cried out one night…. All the mermaid felt sorry for him….
Darihma his favorite brought an idea “my king, since you don’t like the ladies here, what about I bring a lady outside cause I know of a beautiful girl in my class that most guys admire and she’s my… Why not I invite her here” she said
He stared at her for a while, although he knew she had never disappointed him before “she must be beautiful and she must love me forever ” he said
“Yes my king, you’ll love her cause she’s far beautiful than the queen and I bet you that the queen would be jealous when she sees beautiful Dinah ” She said
“You mean her name is Dinah? ” he asked
“yes my king” she bowed
“I’ll change her name when she comes, she’ll no longer answer Dinah, that’s if she’s beautiful ” he said
“so be it as you said ” she bowed
“I’ll give you a gift that you’ll give her when you go to school… ” he said
He brought out a beautiful golden ring and give it to Darihma, he told her not to allow anybody to test the ring, the first person to test the ring must be Dinah and once she put it on her finger, she’ll appear at their next meeting…..
They all sang and dance with their tail for the king…. He was excited that he’ll soon have a beautiful wife and he promised to give her half of his kingdom.
I went straight to the kitchen immediately I arrived from work, I dished my food which was pounded yam and vegetables soup…. I felt dizzy and weak not knowing the exact problem…..
I moulded the first cut and swallowed it, something must be wrong with me…. My phone rang immediately, I checked the caller My love…. I felt relieved cause it was my fiancé….
“Hello love ” I said happily
“have you seen my text? ” he asked ignoring my greetings
“not at all dear, I just arrived at work and I’m eating” I said
“okay, try to check the message ” he said and hung the call
I was surprised cause that sounds unusual, whenever I said I’m eating he would always say I should come and feed him…. His dull words stroke me dumb, I ignored the second moulded pounded yam and focused on my phone to see the message….
*Dear love, please don’t be offended and don’t feel upset. I just discovered my feelings towards you has grow cold, I’m so sorry to tell you this and I’m sorry for all I’ve caused you. I pray that you’ll find a better person in your life*
I almost throwed up seeing the text, he couldn’t even respect me by coming over to tell me it’s over….. He didn’t state any reasons…. He’s just joking…..
I lost my apetitte immediately, I have to report him to my pastor cause he can’t do such to me, after all I’ve done for him… I took care of his education and made sure he had thesame certificate as mine and now all I’m getting is heart brake?
My name is Maureen, I’m the first daughter of my father and the second child of the family of five siblings…. Ken is my fiancé, he engaged me few months ago and has done formal introduction….. We’ve started going for counseling already and our wedding is closed already…. Braking up through a mere text seems to be a disappointment to me…
Ever since I started dating Ken, he has never take me to his parents, I only know his younger brother who they live together…..
Ken has draw a sword for fight cause I don’t know what to tell my parents or people I brag about over him, they would all laugh at me……
My phone rang again, I rushed to pick it expecting it to be Ken…. He should just say baby I’m sorry it was a mistake or any excuse but it was not him….
The caller is Dinah my younger sister, she lives with my mother as the last child we provide her needs…. She’s still a secondary school student…..
“Aunty good afternoon ” she said in her sharp voice, she always calls me aunty while she calls the middle sister big sis..
“uncle how are you doing today ” I said jokingly inorder to avoid my dull voice….
“Fine, the principal gave us the grace of this week to pay our school fees, as from next week they’ll send us away ” she said
“Okay, when you close on Friday take extra clothes and come over, I will also like to send you to mama” I said
“Wow thank you aunty” she said amidst happiness…
I hung the call……
