I sighed and continued walking towards my direction.
I got to the library and walked in.
Thanks to Xavier, I know my way to to some important places in the school.
I walked towards the shelf and took a book.
I got a seat and sat on it.
The students were all minding their business and the library was quiet as students focused on their books.
I rested my jaw on my palm and stared dreamily at Xavier.
A teacher was in the class but my mind wasn’t there. I was just focused, staring at him.
Why does he have to be this handsome huh?
“Miss Alicia?” I jolted back to reality and sat up properly.
“Huh?” I answered and wiped a drool from the corner of my lips.
I brushed my hair with my fingers and focused on the teacher.
“I asked you a question.” Mrs Theresa, the arithmetic teacher said and stared intently at me.
I gulped down nothing and itched my hair.
The whole class were staring at me and gosh, I was damn so nervous.
I zoned out completely that I didn’t even hear the question.
“Ermm ma’am, please recap your question.” I faked a small smile.
“There’s a question on your laptop and I want you to solve it and tell me the answer.” She said sternly.
“Okay ma’am.” I forced a smile.
I stared at the equation and thank goodness, it wasn’t new to me.
I type the solutions and within few seconds, I got my answer.
I looked up at Mrs Theresa who was waiting patiently for me to produce the answer and the students staring at me.
“The answer is 5 ma’am.” I answered.
She ran her eyes all over my body and her lip suddenly stretched out in a smile.
“That’s impressive Alicia. You’re correct.” She smiled and I felt my stomach do some happy dance.
“Thank you ma’am.”
She walked back to stand in front of the classroom and my gaze suddenly met with Xavier’s.
And I could swear that he smiled at me, but as soon as I saw him, he turned away.
Xavier smiled at me.
Was he impressed with me?
Of course dumb head! I mentally smacked my head.
I squealed elatedly in my psyche and look away shyly.
School was great and Delaney had lunch with Rio.
I didn’t like it but I let them be.
Chelsea seemed to be happy that Delaney didn’t eat lunch with us.
We chatted lightly but sincerely, I wasn’t even interested in whatever she was saying but I just had flow with the conversation.
Chelsea didn’t follow us home and I was more than glad. She’s too clingy but because she’s been my friend for a long time, I don’t want to push her away.
The ride home was awkwardly quiet and the silence was uncomfortable.
Delaney was just staring outside the car window while I just typed away on my phone.
“Xavier?” I heard Delaney’s tiny voice.
I turned and stared at her.
“Huh?” I asked and dropped my phone on the car seat.
She was fondling with her fingers nervously and she couldn’t meet my gaze.
“I’m sorry.” She breathed out and finally looked at me.
“For what exactly?” I huffed.
“I don’t even know. But yesterday, you were mad at me because I had screamed of snakes and worms, but it was just a meal– spaghetti.
You were so vexed and you said mean words to me. I’m sorry.” She explained and sighed.
“Okay.” I replied perfunctorily.
“Just okay?” She asked and bit her lower lip.
Damn it! She looked so cute and innocent.
“What do you want me to say?” I asked.
“Are you still angry with me?” She pouted and tucked in her hair behind her ear.
“I’m not. Just forget about it.” I shrugged.
“Okay, thanks.” She smiled.
We got home and walked into the house together.
We got into the house and met mom seated and reading a magazine– she looked so engrossed reading, with her glasses on.
“Good evening mom.” I greeted and kissed her cheeks.
“Oh! Evening son.” She smiled and dropped the magazine on the glass table.
She stood on her feet and pecked my both cheeks respectively.
“Good evening mom.” Delaney smiled shyly.
Mom embraced her and kissed her hair.
“Evening dear.” Mom smiled and pulled her cheeks playfully.
Geez! I think I’m getting jealous already because of their closeness.
They look just like mother and daughter.
“I know that look son, don’t be jealous.
You’ve enjoyed motherly care ever since you were young.” Mom laughed.
Oh mom! She reads me so well!
“And don’t worry Xavier, I won’t steal your mom from you.” Delaney smiled at me.
I rolled my eyes and started for the stairs.
“Please mom, my usual.” I called out as I climbed the stairs.
“Sure thing son, I’d have one of the maids bring it to your room.” Mom called out back.
“I have an announcement to make!” Mom said aloud and darted her eyes from Delaney to me.
We were both sitting in the sitting room because mom called us and said she wanted to talk to us.
“Okay, what is it mom? I have a project work to start working on.” I rolled my eyes.
“Okay son, this is specifically for you.” Mom started, with a smile but she looked serious.
“Me? What have I done?” I asked and poked my chest.
“You didn’t do anything wrong son.” Mom smiled.
“And please, no interruption till I’m done talking.” She added sternly.
I swallowed my question and stared intently at her.
“From today onwards Xavier, you’d be tutoring Delaney.
She needs to know more things because she’s too naive.
You tutoring doesn’t have to be only about your studies but also going out to places, maybe to have fun.” Mom said, grinning widely.
“What? Why mom?” I scoffed.
“That’s because she needs to be more enlightened.” Mom replied.
“But why me mom? You can just hire a private tutor for her.” I grumbled.
“Please Xavier, I just want you to help her. It doesn’t have to be everyday. You can just write a time table for days you’d tutor her.
Please Xavier, I’m really counting on you.” Mom pouted childishly that I was almost forced to laugh– she looked like a kid who was deprived of lollipop.
Mom can be so dramatic sometimes.
“What’s gonna be my reward mom?” I asked.
“Hmm, that would be… Yes! I’d give you my breast milk.” Mom laughed.
Delaney bursted into an hysterical laughter, clutching her stomach tightly.
I was supposed to be angry but I joined in the laughter.
“Mom, that’s not fair.” I pouted.
“I’m just kidding son. I’d definitely get you something but it’s gonna be a surprise.
Just make sure Delaney is well tutored.” Mom said and smiled.
“Alright mom. I agree.” I grumbled at last.
“Yay! Thank you son!” Mom squealed happily and hugged me.
Delaney giggled and winked at me.
I stirred awake and rolled out of the bed. I rubbed my eyes and yawned lightly.
I got out of my room and went downstairs.
I got to the sitting room and the house looked rather quiet.
I got to the kitchen, and after drinking water, I went to the sitting room.
“Hey, excuse me!” I called out to one of the maids.
“Please where’s Xavier and his mom?” I asked– we were standing close to each other.
“Oh! Ma’am Jenny stepped out for a while and master Xavier left few minutes ago.
He was with his friend, I think Rio. He didn’t say where he was going.” She said.
I nodded my head and mouthed an *o*.
Gosh! The house was so quiet and I was bored. Nobody to even talk with.
The day was still bright even if it was evening time.
I tried watching the TV but I didn’t even understand what they were showing, it looked uninteresting and I got bored from watching it.
I didn’t see Xavier in the TV and a part of me wanted to see him badly.
I got outside the house and the cool breeze swept my hair and made it fly to different directions.
I smiled and after looking around carefully and making sure no one was in sight, I opened the gate and walked out.
I’d just look around and get back home before any of them would notice I’m not around.
That thought, I started walking.
I don’t know for how long I’ve walked and I don’t even know when I got to this part of the environment but I knew I wasn’t within the house again.
I was so fascinated by the beautiful things I saw along the way and I didn’t know when I left the house environs.
I panicked because I already lost my way.
I turned back and started finding my way back.
On my way back, something caught my attention.
I looked properly and saw Xavier in something like a big paper hung up.
The place it was hung was tall.
And then, I remembered the conversation I had with Xavier’s mom about the picture of Xavier I had seen.
She was actually the one who told me it was a picture and she said it’s supposed to be within the house.
But looking at this huge picture, I knew it was stolen.
I moved closer to it and not minding the people around, I started climbing up to remove the big picture.
“Xavier!” I cried as I continued to climb up. The people who were walking already stopped to look at me.
They were looking and laughing at me like I’ve gone insane but I cared less.
Who knows if he’s in trouble?
I need to save him!
I successfully got up and started touching his face. Looking closely at it, it doesn’t look like a picture.
Okay, how the hell did he get up there?
“Xavier who hang you up here? Why are you here?” I asked, still on what I climbed up on.
He didn’t answer me but continued to stare at me.
“Oh Xavier! Please answer me! Why are you here? Were you stolen and kept here?” I screamed out.

Chidinma was the first to open her eyes the next morning. Her eyes hit on the window. It’s dawn outside the silence of the early morning was eerie.
“same duty post this morning,let’s get ready and go to the mines”olive rolled into her. Chidinma nodded.
they both get ready,some other maids were up.
before Hana and the rest woke,they already left for the mine.Somehow, olive saw it as an opportunity to speak to chidinma.
after a while,she hesitate.
“it’s very early,it will be uncultured to bring last night topic up”; she said within herself.
they worked quietly in the mines,extracting minerals and all sort of valuable resource the mine attendants were also on their guard.
“why are those people wearing different uniform from ours; asked Chidinma
“cos they are slaves,they work every day and night orders from the king are taken strictly by them…
“that woman looks old,how long has she been a slave?
“it must have been long”
“no wonder my mom hates royalities,you can imagine that old woman working”
Chidinma shook her head.
“what will it cost king jewel to set them free,it doesn’t matter if they are not is people. Am begining to dislike royals”
“Prince drema is not like them. He makes sure big foods comes to them most of the days. He comes here frequently and command the guards to pack foods in big silver bowls he treats them well. Prince drema is never in support of his father,drema is a good guy,he has never maltreat a slave,he has never made a slave labour! prince drema saved me twice or have you forgotten am an orphan??
I have a feeling he will set them free if he becomes king in the future” olive said the truth
Chidinma was about talking when a low born maid servant came to inform her that queen chiamaka called.
she left olive in the mine and went to answer the queen.
“yes my queen
“I will send you on an errand
“okay my queen
“I hope I can trust you
“yes my queen”
“ok. I need you to get my jewel set for the royal feast next tomorrow.
my friend in Vietnam is designing it,she will be sending it down but she hasn’t given me any exact time,it might be tomorrow or next tomorrow”
“so you and the driver will go to the penthouse, she will send it through her servant once it’s ready
“yes my queen
“you won’t come back without it,I don’t want to hear stories that it got lost
“this should be enough money to keep you for the two days,here is the address give it to the driver
Chidinma bowed and left to the maids quarter she bath again and started changing.
“where are you going?”Hana asked
“going to get queen chiamaka jewel set” she replied,another maid peeped the address.
“drema’s penthouse! I was the one who went last month. gosh,drema has a luxurious taste his penthouse is far beautiful than the palace” Gina said.
“I was unlucky I didn’t get to see drema throughout that two days,who knows you might be lucky” Gina added.
“if you’re lucky he comes around,seduce him and get pregnant for him so that you can he his baby mama”Sarah said
“Chidinma even if drema shows up just ignore him or better still break up with him”Hana said
“yes Hana” Chidinma replied.
Dika widened her eyes.
minutes later she left with the driver.
Chidinma and the driver arrived at drema’s penthouse.
the uniqueness of the place is what everyone will admire but not chidinma. in fact she pretended as if she didn’t see the beauty of the place.
“when will the woman send the queens jewel and how long will I stay here?”Chidinma asked instead.
“within two days,the order should arrive. Just that Rhoda today might be tomorrow hope you have something to sustain you?
Chidinma raised the money given to her.
“okay,let’s go in then” The driver said and dragged the bag in.
As the driver sat in the living room,Chidinma walked around the penthouse it was so beautiful,the pool had two colours the white part and blue part,she wondered how come there was a stair inside the pool. This stairs demarcated the blue side from the white side.
it was indeed awesome,
the base of the pool was tiled gold.
she checked every other place,the rooms everything.
“hmm miss,you can take the room
I will take the couch here” said the driver.
“no need.My house is not far,I will come back tomorrow morning” Chidinma said. It was just a coverage lie,she has never been comfortable staying alone with the opposite sex.
Chidinma walked out and took a taxi. She was stunned when she arrived. her house wasn’t the same wretched house she left. Aaah it even have a dream or am I dreaming!
she paid the taxi and knocked on the gate.
“am I really dreaming or what???
she knocked again,it was opened by her junior brother,nonso.
Its been 6months I left home,how come nonso is taller than me or am I dreaming.
“welcome!! nonso beamed and hugged chidinma.both siblings were happy.
“how is mother??
“she should still be in shop or her friends place
“don’t you know? didn’t Hana deliver any letter to you,have sent several letters to her to deliver”nonso said.
“I didn’t receive any letter”
Chidinma shook her head. Nonso was shocked.
“what type of friend do you have? have sent you to 10 letters for her to deliver,anytime I call the palace landline to speak to you she always says you’re not around or are you always around?” nonso asked,fluently. not speaking the normal pidgin,his English was so sounding.
“at last my effort didn’t waste to work and send you to school”Chidinma said within herself.
“am always around. Hana didn’t tell me anything”
“I think you should be careful of her,then” nonso said thoughtfully.
both siblings went in.
Chidinma started calculating. 100k per months eight months will be 800 thousands..
my mom really spent those money wisely.
“thank you very much,I promise I won’t disappoint you”nonso said as they both sat facing the tv.
Chidinma nodded.Her mind stupidly think of where she and drema usually meet on Thursday night,it’s not really far from her house.
“is today Thursday?
chidinma collected her face immediately who knows if he is waiting for me.
should I go???
no no I don’t think I should go..
aaah is better I go and break up with him once and for all or what should I do?
think think think……
am really thinking of him this days.
and as for Hana,why didn’t she deliver those letters to me??
is she planning on hiding my family from me.
I can’t believe that girl.
“are you going somewhere!
“yes,I will come back
nonso also stood up.
“alright I will follow you,it’s night already this area is not safe”
“hunn,you want to protect me??
“yes,am a big boy now oo”…
they both heard the gate sounds.
“mama is back from shop
“I can’t believe Hana. what does mother sells now
“ohh my daughter!!! Mrs uyah dropped her bag and ran into the soft embrace of her daughter.
“why didn’t you reply the letters,I always get worried every months..
“am sorry it’s work,no time.
“that’s a lie,Hana didn’t deliver any letters to her” nonso said.
“I…..it’s fine. I came to spend the night with you.
meanwhile prince drema was patiently waiting for Chidinma.
Chidinma on the other hand tossed on her bed she really can’t stop herself from thinking of him.she checked the time.
“I know he is still waiting!
her iPad was beeping non stop. she doesn’t know how to answer a call not to talk of replying texts.She could only stare at the screen each time it beeped.
she got up to wash her face then changed. she picked her purse and walked towards the direction of the back door.
“by this time,who are you going to see???.
she heard her mother’s voice from behind..
her mother’s eyes widened.
“it’s so late,common you can tell me anything..
she suddenly paused. she knows she dare not mention the word PRINCE in her ears.

Chidinma collected her hand carefully and walked out,she wondered why she told him her predicament.
“why am I getting emotional this days,it’s okay forget about it”Chidinma wiped her face with both hands and Chris smiled.
“I wonder what’s wrong with her”
Chris said.He entered drema’s suite and walked to the glass wall and look out. he was surprised to see Chidinma
she stood there quietly behind the garden and watch the bluish pool…it was so dim he couldn’t see her face clearly but he knew it was her,the crying girl
He ran downstairs and walked to where chidinma stood the lights were so dim and romantic.
Chidinma saw Chris,she looked away.
“he is prince drema’s friend who knows if they are both the same”; she said within herself.
Chris was really shy he didn’t know what to say so he just stood beside her.
“good evening sir
“ohh someone is here,I don’t know I just came to look at the waters”Chris replied.
“I better go inside” chidinma said
“no you can still stay if you want
she looked at Chris face helplessly and at every stares she took,she felt pain more and more.
“hey,I think you cry a lot
“it’s nothing sir,the water is so calm.
“it’s really. You’re beautiful can you stop wasting those precious tears
she kept cleaning her face chrid wondered what was wrong with her.
the tears got embarrassing so she ran away. Chris sighed and returned to the prince empire where he waited for drema.
Prince drema arrived after the long day,it was already evening.visiting his numerous companies really ate up his time plus the shoots he had today,he still had a lot to complete. If not for Chris he wouldn’t have come to the palace tonight.
he walked up straight to his suite,
it was only him he didn’t take any guard along.
“rema you kept me waiting seriously” Chris said,a smirk on his lips.
“really,when did you arrived?
“a while ago.
“the palace is somewhat cool,I saw a maid ran out crying an hour ago” he added.
“a girl??? rema emphasize
“I thought you’ve stopped that bad attitude of flirting with girls”rema added.
“me???? well I tried to calm her down but she ran away. guess what???” Chris clicked his tongue.
“whaaattt! rema turned to him.
“she’s pretty,I think she’s gorgeous” Chris said.
rema shook his head and locked the door behind him,just then he looked at the mask in his hand and remembered Chidinma, the look on his face was damn pure. The memory of kissing Chidinma and him wanting to tell her his real identity didn’t want to leave his mind.
it occupied him all through the day.
Drema suddenly wanted to see her again so he dialed the landline and ordered wine and grilled fish sauce for Chris. He was too tired to hear the voice of the one who picked the landline but he wished it was Chidinma. this was the only way he could see her here.
He heard a knock on the door,he opened up and it was Dika. Drema was disappointed he really want to see chidinma’s face again.
Dika bowed and placed the order on the dinning.
“Are you alright?” Chris asked.
“I think so”rema replied he sat on the dinning opposite Chris.
Chris poured the fruity wine into the two glasses…
“I brought the contract files with me”Chris took a sip of his wine.
“good for you”rema dropped the glass back and took his car key.
“wait for me,I need to see someone it’s really urgent bye” he ran out.
Chris dropped his glass.
“I wonder what’s so important for you to abadon a contract file that worth millions”.
Chidinma ignored everyone. For the rest of the day,it was only her and her maid duties. Now she just understand the reason why Nora hates her so so much.
As the night approach,the maids dismissed. It was in that moment crystal ordered Chidinma and two other maids to serve Nora, not only Nora, Nora and her royality friends.
“don’t this girls have house!
“they are really shameless,hunnn!! two of the maids said.
“especially that nora or whatever she calls her name,worst still prince drema doesn’t likes her” another maid said.
“it’s just a matter of time,prince drema will not accept that engagement”
“I really can’t wait” another maid said.
they kept quiet as soon as they approach the suites where Nora and her royality friends were. They walked in.
Gina took Nora’s empty glass until Nora spoke
“you all can leave except her” Nora pointed to Chidinma.
chidinma widened her eyes,this is really a lot of work she held her anger in and served them while chidinma served princess Laura, the other princess Sheila intentionally spilled her water on Chidinma.
At this moment,chidinma couldn’t take it anymore..
“ohh such a pretty maid” Sheila said.
another of Nora’s friend poured the cold wine on her from her head. before she could think of anything,different things landed on her body
“the prettier the better” she heard Nora.
“indeed” Laura added.
“This is just a warning,chidinma
I hope after this,you will do what’s right by staying away” Nora said. Chidinma walked out.
Nora sat back.
I can’t believe this,drema really amazes me.
Chidinma returned to the maids building to wash herself up.she still refused to talk to anyone. she wore the maid night ware and slept away.
OMG why am I so stupid.
but why did he lie to me,I don’t understand. she hugged the teddy bear.
Dika tapped her.
“what’s wrong Chidinma,you look so dull.
“Obim is prince drema
“whaaaat!! Dika acted surprised,she was expecting this already. She felt like smiling but chidinma’s expression wasn’t smiling.
“what the guy you said you love
“yes,he is really prince drema
“how is that possible??
“this means you don’t love two guys at the same time,omg am happy” olive said,in a low voice.
“this means you’re indeed in love with drema jewel”
“no wonder you always say obim and prince drema look alike sometimes you get confused
“is that why you’re dull.
there is nothing to feel bad about am sure drema likes you too,he did that for a reason.
Hana walked in,anger and jealousy surging through her body system. “that’s impossible stop pouring kerosene to fire, olive do you need glasses?..
Chidinma looked at Hana.
“can you all stop talking about this? liking the poor obim was enough for me but him being drema jewel is like a dream!
“Yes a dream,a big dream because someone like him can never love you,he obviously wanted to use you” Hana said.
Olive knew it was jealousy,how can Hana speak in this way.
“Chidinma don’t mind Hana,that’s impossible you need to ask him yourself why he kept low profile”, olive said.
“humm I pity you chidinma. Have you forgotten the house you came from? you know how much your mom hates trouble. You better stay away from him so you don’t fall more and more in love with him”, Hana said.
“Hana is correct…
“I don’t agree,Chidinma you have to meet drema and hear him out”
“tell him what,do you want Chidinma to get more hurt”said Hana.
Chidinma put pillows to cover her ears.
“everyone leave me alone,thanks for your concern. goodnight”.
Hana slept beside chidinma’s bed before olive could come.
“you slept in my place today again.
“first come,first serve! Hana said.
Chidinma stood up with her pillow and teddy.
“olive come and stay,it will contain three” she said.Olive smiled.
they slept in a row with olive in the middle.
Hana clenched her fists tightly as she watched chidinma carefully. No wonder the pure glazed flame Nina attacked her with didn’t work.
Prince drema is actually a god of war..
this sounds interesting….
“everything will be alright”olive whispered.
“he made mistakes,but why can’t I stop thinking about him”.
Hana clenched at her fists at chidinma’s statement.”I think the best idea is to breakup with him”.

A STOLEN MOMENT.
Prince drema tried kissing Chidinma again but unfortunately chidinma opened her eyes. why is his face closer. she was shocked with goosebumps.
drema removed his face instantly.
“what were you doing to me,you almost kissed me….” Chidinma touched her lips,why is it wet she blinked her lashes,she’s ready to pick a fight.
She stood up,drema watched her like a movie
“you removed my mask and took off my shoes did I send you? what type of nonsense is this?
“what type of prince are you!!!
“tell me now,what did you do to me??
drema still watched her like a movie
“am I talking to someone? Chidinma grabbed his white top.
she came back to her senses and quietly check him out,his amazing height and figure drove her crazy to remember obim.
He wore a black jeans and plain white top.. he wore flat slippers which was designed with pure gold chain,his hair was styled sexily then a black band was deeped in it,then his earrings were two little gold.
what am I thinking anyway,now that he already sees my face,he knows am a maid right…
he wouldn’t want to take advantage of a maid right?? why am I even over reacting,my lips is always moist.
maybe I really jam talked.
Chidinma left his top.
“am sorry my prince..I will leave now”
she said and walked away,drema drew her back by her hand,the butterflies in her Tommy increased at this moment she wasn’t thinking straight.
“am actually your O…..
just then Lila knocked on the door chidinma instantly took her hand and rushed to the door Lila dragged her hand out.
“come on let’s go,Jackie is taking care of the guards outside”
Lila dragged dinma out of the room,I almost told her have confused her enough. Drema locked his suite door.
Lila instantly removed her mask with which she covered chidinma’s face.
“we need to hurry. queen chiamaka mustn’t find out what I did today” Lila said.
they both ran into the car and waited for Jackie who came before they drove away.
Jackie handed Chidinma her card and with the help of olive chidinma went inside the maids room unseen and so did Lila. Both of them heived a sigh of relief.
Chidinma was so tired,she removed the earrings and all other expensive things that can cause suspicion and retired to her bed.
“Bestie how was it?” Hana asked
Chidinma was too confused to answer anybody. the moment she woke and caught prince drema stares replayed in her memory and when he drew her hand.
“he wanted to tell me something,I wonder what it was???
“hey Chidinma” hana called. Chidinma already slept away.
“huumm she doesn’t want to answer me,what type of proud girl is this.
“Chidinma!!! Hana called louder this time and tapped her.
Chidinma woke up forcefully.” do you need anything?
“I want to sleep beside you…”said Hana.
” olive said that first…but..okay no problem” Chidinma shifted to the other side, those memories won’t stop coming. Hana noticed her mood.
one thing Olive hated about Hana is that Hana knows Chidinma best,she can interpret chidinma’s mood perfectly,she can tell if something is wrong with her. she seemed to have known all of chidinma’s secret since childhood.
“talk with me..
“am fine”Chidinma said
“you don’t look like you’re fine”
Chidinma went to her cupboard and took the teddy bear obim bought for her. she removed the nylon and went back to bed with it. I don’t know what he did to me in sleep,I hope you can forgive me.
Chidinma slept hugging the teddy, olive entered.
“Hana you’re sleeping in my place
“what happened to your bed
“hmm am….I just wanted to stay close to the window because of fresh air..
“fresh air??? when there is fan,even the room heater is on..
“I mean I want natural fresh air”Hana said.
Olive looked at Chidinma who had long slept she walked away,she knew something was wrong with Hana this one she is getting close to Chidinma.
she went to the other bed.
“what’s with them?” Dika asked.
“I don’t trust Hana she’s up to something” olive replied.
“Prince drema is the same person as Obim,I pity Chidinma and she’s already in love with him” olive said.
“whaaaaaaattt. Jesus Christ of Nazareth. holy Mary!!!
“hey don’t shout,I know that’s why Hana is getting close to her”
“since when do you know prince drema is obim?
“since last four months,I hope you can keep shut….
“that’s deep. Can Chidinma agree to even marry someone like him,I pity prince drema he has gone through a lot already,I know that’s why he didn’t tell her his true self….
but Chidinma is somehow lucky ooo,am jealous” Dika laughed.
“hmm yes,but for now you need to shut up and don’t tell anyone. We promise to always help each other right”olive said
“Yes,no matter who is more lucky,we can’t be jealous. but this Hana is something else”Dika added.
“what pains me most is that,no matter what Chidinma won’t still take her as an enemy.
Hana woke Chidinma again.
“nothing,are you sure you don’t want to talk to me..
Olive and Dika look at each other and made an annoying cough.
“I don’t think you’re fine. what’s this sign on your neck???” asked Hana.
“what sign?” Chidinma touched her neck.
“it’s an hickey??
“hickey? what’s an hickey??
“when someone kiss you too much,this sign shoes in the place”said Hana.
Chidinma touched the place again. He really kissed me,the prince took advantage of me what type of stupid sleep did I slept,I betrayed Obim.
“aaahh this mark is plenty there where you with a man back there on the party or is it the prince……
Chidinma didn’t say anything,she covered her ears with the pillow.
Prince drema walked out of his penthouse,the maids lined out in a single row,he didn’t answer nor look at any of them he responded only to nkem’s greetings. and bethel walked up to him.
“You left the suite early
“did you sleep here
“no,I only came to check my mansion
“ok let’s return to the palace.
Just then he remembered the whole neck kissing incident with Chidinma,he plugged in his white ear pod. I will only put her in more trouble if I tell her now,why is my love life so complicated??
love is the only exam I keep on failing.
“boss you haven’t visited CT gold industry to know how it’s doing” said bethel.
“I trust you to do that for me
“(smiling) it’s really fine and your automobile company’s are doing just great.
“aah your live show yesterday has gotten lots of engagement,starlife wants to interview you
“can you stop talking about that please?
“(smiling) okay sir.
Nora was on phone.
“how is the investigation going
“we need time
“find out who that girl is at all cost
“we will do so soon enough
“do so please without delay
“trust me we followed them to the royal palace,and my guys are watching the palace closely no one has left..
“whaaattt! that means that girl leaves here..
“yes,it’s under our control..
“noo noo don’t worry I know who the girl is. It’s Chidinma! that bitch.
Nora ended the call,I really over underestimate that maid.
That morning chidinma woke up and started her duties,she ignored everyone. she didn’t even greet anybody.
Lila spoke with Jackie on phone then sat to scroll through drema’s internet pictures she enjoyed watching his live show,drema’s music is really good. just then she saw the pictures of drema hugging with a commoner.
what’s my brother doing with a pauper and in such a dirty environment.
this girl sure looks like Chidinma,how is this possible.
Lila dropped her phone and called the maids landline. she requested for Chidinma.
Chidinma came in minutes later.
“what the hell you doing hunn,you are a commoner how dare you seduce my brother, do you know who and what he is…..” Lila almost flared up but then something changed her mind when she looked at Chidinma.
Her innocent eyeballs and lashes that curled up beautifully,her maid cloths were neatly ironed to bring out her elegance,her sandals thoroughly cleaned.
this lady sure looks like an angel. Lila closer her mouth and didn’t shout at her.
“you called me personally,did I do anything wrong or do you need anything?
Chidinma asked without blinking.
“I don’t need anything”she replied calmly.If drema really loves this woman and am rude to her then it’s a disrespect to my brother.
“then I guess my presence is irrelevant” Chidinma said.
“hmm do you have a twin? Lila asked.
“twins??? am the only female in my family..
“are you sure? you better think
“no” Chidinma nodded. It’s only me and Nonso, my older brother is long dead,I didn’t even had the chance to see what he looks like all I know is that his name is “Darren”.
Lila gave Chidinma her phone.
“she looks like you,the commoner drema hugged”
Chidinma looked at the pictures stunned for minutes she collected the phone,to see better it was really her. she even saw her groundnut tray on the floor.
“what do you have to say? Lila asked.
the phone started shaking on chidinma’s hand
“is that really you?” Lila asked.
Chidinma tears stream down,she dropped the phone and ran out of Lila’s room.
“it’s really him,why am I Soo stupid? I stupidly let him use me!!!
Chidinma said in tears,she wasn’t looking well until she bumped into someone.
“sorry!!! she said and wanted to pass the other direction,the guy took her hand back. Her tears still stream down as she looked at the guy, she hasn’t seen the face before but the guy sure looked expensive..
He held her hand and answered his call with the other hand.
“drema am already waiting for you at the….”
the guy answered his call. on hearing the name “drema” Chidinma hijacked her hand, the guy collected her back.
“hey why are you crying!!.. he brought out an handkerchief and wiped her tears.
“it’s really him,I stupidly let him use me” Chidinma said and cried the more. She has promised not to tell anyone but she doesn’t even know why she is telling this guy she is just meeting for the first time..
