[I know,you won’t stay ]

BY: Adesola Adeomowole.M



looked at dubem,my little brother who doesn’t know we ain’t blood.
“ngozi” he tapped me,
I rolled on my bed and fake sleep.
“ngozi” he tapped me again,
I shrugged in sleep.
“ogini kwa nu(what is it)” I said.
“ngozi mummy said you should come and wash my bombom I just poopoo” four years old dubem said.
“aaah ahhh can’t you see am sleeping” I retorts.
“mummy said you should also change my cloths” he added.
“can’t you call me aunty hunn?”
I said and twisted his ears,dubem has no respect.
“Aiiiiiiissssss my ears” he screamed.
“dubem! dubem! mama shouted from the kitchen,I hastily left his ears.
“mama insect entered his ears that’s why he is screaming” I said and carried him to the backyard where I watched his buttocks.
I washed my hands and his own,
we went back inside..
Our food was ready,dubem rushed to it and opened it-
the aroma of the assorted ogbono filled our room.
“etiquette” I said.
he washed his hands again and we started eating in silence.
I shared the meat and purposely make one bigger than the other.The bigger one has lots of bone.
“I want the bigger one” he says.
I smiled and push it to him while I through the one with lots of flesh into my mouth.
“eeeh what’s this?” he asked.
“aunty there’s no meat here” he said with a pitiful expression.
“you said you want the big one” I said and washed my hands.
I carried a low stool and sat in our compound to receive fresh air.
Dubem joined me afterwards.I knew he wanted something the moment he come on my laps.
“as from today,I will call you aunty” he said.
“you’re a trouble maker, just tell me what you want” I said.
he wrapped his hands around me.
“folktales please” he said.
“the title of my story is “The lost beauty” I said.
“hmmm sounds interesting” he clapped his hands ryhmtically.
“once upon a time,there lived a girl named Ifedimma.She lives with her wicked stepmother who make her works all day and eat like an ant”
I said.
I checked dubem,he already slept.
I smiled and took him in,I made sure he slept well.That was when I realized I haven’t deliver the new stock to mama mmesoma.
I packed the clothes for sale and rushed to her house.
Mama mmesoma is onome’s close friend abs both are known as the best best gossip partner as their house isn’t far from each other.
I got to her house not quiet long and knocked on the door,she answered it few seconds later.
“good evening nne” I greeted.
“welcome..but why this time” she asked.
“I forgot” I replied and bite my nails in a forgetful manner.
I presented the cloth, she brought out lantern and examine it.
“#4,000 ma’am” I said.
“you’ve started again,I used to buy it #3,500″she bargained.
“aaaah mama this one is not like those rags other trader well, my mother traveled for two days to a far away kingdom just to get this stock brands” I said.
“do you even heard what happened?” she asked me.
“mama please pay me and let me go, it’s night already” I said.
this woman can gossip for Africa,
no wonder onome chose her ad best friend.
she paid me,I counted the money and left.I ran since it was night,
and I mistakenly jammed olamma.
“You daft,do you have loads on your eyes?” she flared up.
“and do you have problems with sight” I retorts.
“if fire is burning you,you better use it to burn the floor” she hissed and walk away.
“idiot,village prostitute…Ashawo..
na your family fire go burn”
I said and bent to pick my key,I saw a little bottle on the floor.
seriously,this must have fallen from olamma.I picked it up and stopped at where there was light.
I opened the bottle and smelt it,
the pungent and choking smell was as strong as hell.
this is bekwe poison!!! I hastily covered the bottle.
“what’s olamma doing with this… this is poison is deadly for those who have the sickness of fearing cold but for common people,it is nothing.
what can she be doing with it??
I ran home.
@Adesola golden stories.
Onome’s p.o.v
I made sure everyone slept,
and I brought out the black calabash I kept under my bed,the giant queen in the world of the immortal appeared.
she turned her back against me which is very unusual.
smokes emanates from the pot,I hastily covered it.
I opened it again.
the one who enslaves the land with war…
the great one who wear fansy pants to war to destroy thousands.
you carry we your children on your back to the war font….
chaos and war is nothing but a playful thing for you ..
the strongest rock who wouldn’t take insults with ease!
her image disappeared on the pot surface..I got scared.
Aaaah fire!!.
teeth are gone,laughter now becomes a difficult thing in my house
I covered my mouth and ran out.
I got to her grave and stood still,
soon I started clapping ryhmtically..
The floor started shaking with heavy sounds, I started seeing double.
and the shaking floor was replaced with smokes as my great grandmother appeared with visible furry in her eyes that already got blood shot,in her hand was an arrow.
“my priestess”
“my mother”
“my one and only supporter”
“the one who never fails”
I breathed out.
“isn’t it time to fulfill your promise..
look the third moon just elapse” she said,fire gush out.
“am trying my best mma” I said.
“your best isn’t enough” she cuts in rashly.
“I can’t hold this ugliness anymore” she added.
“ma’am hold it for a while” I said.
“then I want something in return” she said.
“anything,I shall give it to you” I said.
“Adeife’s voice!! once you shoot her with this arrow,it would be trapped”
she said.
“but you said her voice can never be seized again” I said.
“what I see you can’t” she said.
I took the bow and arrow and went back,I ran. But I stopped when I sighted Ife running and passing through shortcuts.
Aaaaaahhh isn’t my creator good?.
“Adeife” I called.
“ma’am” she answered and stopped running,she turned and froze when she saw me.
“what did I tell you about BELIEVE-
you don’t need to believe for you’re hopeless,now come to me” I said.
“no mama,I don’t want to come”
she shook her head and started running.
I ran after her as I set the arrow.
“you can’t run for long” I said and set the arrow..I set target on her leg,
she missed it.
I fired two together,it was almost meeting her but the two arrow intersect and drop on the floor.
“hmmm this is getting more tougher”
the giant queen spirit appeared.There was a candle in her hand, she dropped it and she took the bow and arrow and wanted to do it herself, someone dragged Ife.
He turned and gosh…. his sight was like the most handsome creature have ever seen,
he had tiny diamond earring on his ears….I couldn’t see his full face as he didn’t turn well.
only his diamond earring and bracelet glittered.
The light on the candle went off, the priestess suddenly got weak and disappeared.
what can be happening?
“Babe have been waiting since!
I heard his voice as he took Ife by his right hand.
what a golden voice, I might as well stay here to listen all days long.
but who is he????
he looks so rich and extensive for someone of his age.
“umm arrow,let’s leave here quickly”
I heard Ife saying… I couldn’t see so clearly cos it was night…next I saw the two hugging.
I fix in another arrow and set it on the unknown guy.
“who are you?” I shouted.
they disengaged.
” until one day,I don’t need to humble myself in front of you” he replied.

Mr Arrogant Season 2 Episode 31

(Ând the strânge maidën)

By: Faith Lucky




Delaney’s pov
“So prom is like a custom where students dressed in fashionable dresses and engage in different activities. Like the dancing, dinner and date.

It’s just like a night party but it’s mostly for the final year student in high school.

So, I don’t know how to really explain a date to you – but it’s a person that goes together with another person that is, a girl as a prom date to a girl.

And there’s always a king and queen for prom or the best prom couple.” Xavier explained and sighed.

He stared intently at me, as if searching my eyes for answers.

“Wait, I hope I wasn’t talking to myself? Did you understand?” He asked and blinked his eyes and shook me lightly.

I let out a light giggle and swat his hands away.

“You weren’t talking to yourself okay? And I did only understand few words but the others, I’ll just pretend that I understand.” I said truthfully.

“So? Let me ask you officially, will you be prom date?” He asked with a smile and I didn’t know – but my heart suddenly skipped a bit.

I smiled shyly and bent my head.

“Yeah.” I smiled and stared at him.

“Yes!” He smiled and hugged me tight.

He pulled away and quickly place a kiss on my lips.

I turned towards another direction and bit my lip shyly.

“Shy queen.” He teased and tickled my lightly. I laughed and hit him playfully on his chest.

…. And the rest of the lesson was fun and educating.


Alicia’s pov
“So mom, have you thought about it?” I asked quizzically and stared intently at mom as if searching her eyes for answers.

She sighed and smiled at me.

“I’ve made up my mind already. I couldn’t sleep a wink last night as I was in deep thoughts…” Mom started while I sat properly – eagerly waiting for her response.

I really do hope it’s something that I’ll be happy about.

“Okay…” I nodded my head.

“Legally, we have rights as Chelsea and her mother to be in that mansion.

We are your father’s first family and we have every right to be in the same mansion as he his and his wife.

Your father had been hiding us away from his family and it isn’t right. They should know about us also. It’s as if we are not his family and I’m like his mistress.

And as I think hard about it, it hurts a lot.

So, I’ve made up my mind… We are going to your father’s house and introduce ourselves to his wife and child. He can’t keep hiding us forever. Let whatever want to happen, happen.

We are tired of being side lined.” Mom sighed softly.

“I agree with you mom. We need to enjoy such luxury too.” I concurred with a smile.

“Exactly!” Mom nodded.

“So mom, when are we going over?” I asked, already seeing myself there in the mansion and living like a princess.



Delaney’s pov
“So, we’ll be solving arithmetics today.” Xavier said, unzipping his backpack.

“Sure. I’m sure gonna impress you.” I boasted with pride and smiled.

Xavier arched his brows at me and smirked.

“What! Do you think I’m bluffing?” I pout.

“No ma’am Delaney, you aren’t.” He laughed while I faux a frown.

“You look like a goblin when you frown.” He teased and did an ugly face – but he still looked cute.

I poked his chest and we both bursted into laughter.

As he tried to bring out his books, his backpack fell from the table and his books turned upside down on the floor.

“Let me help you.” I offered and bent down to pick up his books.

As I picked them up, a small box fell and what was inside fell out because probably the box wasn’t closed properly.

I picked up what fell and my eyes dilated in shock.

My mouth fell opened in shock as I stared at it.

I turned to look at Xavier and he had a confuse countenance.

“How the hell did you get this?” My voice came out in a yell as I dangled it in front of him.


Seems Xavier has explanation to do or don’t you think so? 🤔

Chelsea’s pov
Throughout that day in school, I didn’t enter the classroom till it was closing already. I was too ashamed to enter into the classroom and face the students – who’d probably mock at me.

I was not ready to hear their taunting words that that would probably throw at me.

They sure were expecting me to be Xavier’s date and I’ve been all eager and proud about it.

And now Xavier didn’t choose me – making it so humiliating.

I was in the garden, crying my eyes out and preparing both my body and soul for the mocking words I’m gonna sure get from the students – especially the ones that I had rubbed it to their faces that I would definitely be chosen.

Why would Xavier do this to me?

Why didn’t he choose me?

I’ve known him for years and he didn’t choose me but Delaney who just came in within just a short period of time – he chose her.

What did he even see in her?

I’ll just hope that he hasn’t fallen in love with her, else… I wouldn’t be able to take it.

I really wanted to be chosen as Xavier’s prom date but since he didn’t choose me, then I’ll hope that he’d choose me as his girlfriend.

I just hope I’ll be that lucky girl.


Alicia’s pov
I stomped to my room, feeling rather angry and upset.

I felt bittered and at that moment, I felt like punching something real bad to let out my anger.

So, after my gifts – even if I knew they weren’t expensive, Xavier didn’t choose me as his prom date but that girl – Delaney or whatever they call her.

I was expecting that my name would be called as Xavier’s prom date but I was really sad and angry that he didn’t choose me.

He didn’t even make Chelsea his prom date and he went ahead to choose someone else?

Someone we didn’t expect him to choose.

I felt really down casted and I almost felt like ripping off Xavier’s mouth he used in calling Delaney’s name.

Thinking about it is making me more upset.

I got to my room and undressed. I packed my hair in a messy bun and walked to my bathroom.

I stood under the shower and let the water cascade down my nude self.


After I was done bathing, I toweled my body and wore a simple outfit.

I got downstairs and started for the kitchen and started preparing dinner before mom would come back from the hospital.

“So mom, I’ve been thinking…” I started and exhaled. I mentally prepared myself for whatever thing mom is gonna say and how she’s gonna react too.

“What?” She asked and stared intently at me.

“So I’ve been thinking, I don’t like the way we are living. We are supposed to be at dad’s mansion and enjoying the luxury his child and wife are enjoying.

We have legal rights to enjoy them too. Dad’s been hiding us away from them and I think it’s time we show ourselves.

Why don’t we go to dad’s mansion and confront dad? Whatsoever that’s gonna happen should happen.

Let’s tell him that we want to leave in that mansion even though his wife and child doesn’t likes us. Besides, he needs to tell them that he had a family outside.” I explained.

Mom was quiet and I was trying hard to read her expression but I couldn’t tell what was going on in her mind.

She didn’t look angry or sad.

“Wow Alicia! I’ve also been thinking about it too!” She finally said, with a smile on her face.

I released the breathe I didn’t know I was holding and smiled.

“Really mom?” I asked.

“Yes. But I’ll think it through tonight and by tomorrow, I’ll tell you my final decision. I’m tired of struggling hard to provide for us in this house and living in this kind of a house when I know I’m supposed to be living in somewhere better.” Mom sighed.

“Alright mom. I’ll wait.” I said simply.

Thank goodness I’m not the only one in this – mom supports me as well.

Hold on..Kayla?
Am I seeing things? Why is she here? I saw that the guards were about to take her away and got up.

Without thinking, I got up and started running towards her. “Kayla!!”

Unexpectedly, someone caught my hand, I immediately knew it was Khalid”Hey, what are you doing?”

I shrug off his hands”Let go of me! I need to go to Kay”

“She’s not here, you must be mistaken, come on, let’s eat breakfast” he wanted to take my hand again but I was quick to step out of reach.

“No!! I know who I just saw, trust me. She’s the one” with that said, I turned towards the entrance but couldn’t see her again.

Oh no.. I can’t loose her, I can’t.
I ran out of the building and frantically searched everywhere for her.

“No! Let go of me!” I heard faintly and followed the voice.

Finally, I saw her.
The guards were trying to restrain her, with tears streaming down my face, I yelled her name.

❤️ Kayla ❤️
Oh gosh, I was so close to seeing him when this morons caught me.

I even tried to tell them I’m Kayla but the won’t believe me. They think I’m some mad woman looking for something to eat.

Yeeesh! I guess I caused this for myself.

Charles suddenly walked towards us, my heart lightened. “Charles! I’ve been looking for you!”

He paused– surprised that I knew his name. “Kayla?”

I breathed out relieved”Phww, thank goodness you recognized me. I was beginning to think this morons wouldn’t let me go” I casually say with a smile on my lips.

The smile slowly faded when I saw the look on his face. He didn’t say anything.

He only turned to his fellow guards”Take her away”

I blinked”What? Take me away? I came all the way to see you and you’re asking them to what?”

Gosh, I’ve never seen this side of him, so cold and unlike Charles..

The guards took ahold of me and started dragging me away. “Charles! Charles? Don’t let them do this!”

“Charles!” I cried out but he only stared coldly at me.

I stopped struggling and decided to go with them, I felt defeated by his behavior and for the first time ever since coming here, I regretted coming with here with him.

The guards were dragging me away when I suddenly heard”Kayla!!!”

That voice…

Why does the voice sounds like June’s own?

“Kayla!!” I heard again and stopped. I turned only to see June. I blinked again to check correctly, am I seeing things?

“June?!!” I screamed, shrugged off the guards hands and ran towards her.

She also ran towards me and then we collide with each other. I hugged her tightly with tears in my eyes.

“Oh God! I missed you so much!”

“Me too, very much” I answered.

We were just like two lost sisters, separated by an evil king and haven’t seen each other in years.

I took in her familiar citrus scent and sigh, I didn’t even realize how much I missed her until now.

I gazed towards Charles and saw him looking at us with a strange look on his face.

🌻 Melissa 🌻
“Take a look at this ma’am”

The guy I asked to follow Khalid muttered. I must admit that I’m surprised by this. I never expected him to get this work done quickly.

I took the pictures from him and gazed at them with a smile on my face. “Perfect! This will do”

Khalid was holding her hand in one of the pictures, the other one looks like he was hugging her from behind.

“This would do” o dropped some cash on the table for him, he took it and brought out another file from his bag.

“I also found some interesting informations about her, it wasn’t hard but it’ll do”

My smile widened as I went through it.Oh my gosh!! I’ve finally gotten what to use against Khalid. He will be more than embarrassed when he sees this.

🖤Charles 🖤
I was so furious when I saw the commotion at the entrance. Do they want Khalid to get angry?

I marched towards them ready to scold them when I saw the same Arab woman from this morning.

“What’s going on here?” I asked coldly. Imagine my surprise when I heard Kayla’s voice. I became furious at her that she tricked us, does she knows that she has jeopardize our job by coming here?

Without thinking, I sent her away ignoring the look on her face. I clearly asked her not to come and yet she did.

Someone called her name, I turned to see June. Fvck!!!

I could only watch in a daze as they hug theirself. Oh damnit!! This is bad, really bad.

I turned towards the restaurant so I could explain to boss but froze when I saw him watching the scene. His eyes met mine and…

🌻 June 🌻
We pulled back and looked at ourselves then we bursted out laughing. “Jeez what are you wearing Kay?”

She glanced at herself and laughed more”Oh I’ll tell you all about it, how are you doing? I thought you said you were kidnapped? How did you end up here?”

I growled at the thought and smacked her hand”I asked for your help you nitwitted bitch! And you hanged up on me, I was really furious you know”

“Ohh sorry, but you were with Khalid.. anyways I was kidnapped too so no worries okay? ”

My heart clenched as she mentioned this, I looked away guilty. She was kidnapped because of me.

I was about to speak up when my phone beeped. I brought out the new phone Khalid bought me and saw a news article.

I clicked on it and froze..
I was on news, my picture and Khalid’s were all over the net.

I scrolled down frantically and tensed up more when something caught my attention.

*It seems like our Khalid now has a girlfriend*

*Our Billionaire’s girlfriend’s uncle is a drug dealer*

Oh my God!
“June? Are you okay? June?!”

My phone fell down from my hand, uncle Ryder is a what?

My head spun, it felt like my world was crashing down. I didn’t even know I was falling down till I hit the ground and I blacked out.?

The end of #season_1 (one)
