[STORY] My Celebrity Crush (episode 1-26)

My Celebrity Crush

My Celebrity Crush
Episode 1
This battle has been on since centuries ago, you guys know what I’m talking about, the battle between celebrities and non celebrities
An actor dying to have a celebrity marriage, and an actress who just want to get down with every handsome guy that works his way into the industry, where they come out to wash their dirty panties and talk about their break ups and divorce. Sometimes I want to kill that dream of becoming an actress, my parents did everything in their power to train me in a good and Godly way, if by chance I make my way into the film industry I will try to honour my parents memory by being that sweet little girl they trained.
Since I was four years old, that was when I had fall in love with acting, when I’m studying I act, when I’m sleeping I act, when I’m walking on the road I act, anywhere you see me I was always acting on my own. As a good parents they knew its my wish to become an actress but since they were to poor to send me to study in the university they pretended not to be seeing my talent.
Then my father died when I was 16 years old, it was really a sad day for my mother and I, we didn’t have money but we had love, plenty of it, when my dad died my mother broke, she became a different woman, she doesn’t talk, neither does she eat, always in our small hut crying her eyes out. I was through with my secondary school which was also my university since my dad said that’s why he could reach, before he died they were arranging one chief to marry me but God does his things in a way we humans can not understand. I swear my father’s death really pained me but God knows what’s best.
Then when I became an adult my mum died too( funny right) she left me alone to go live on with her husband, I have no one, I mean no one to run to or call my own, I was alone in the village, every year I see people come and go, students going to school and returning back to meet their parents. Honesty I was jealous I envy them, sometimes I hide in my Conner and cry, ask God why he has allowed me to die with my dreams and talent.
Then he finally heard my prayers when some people came to our village for a movie shoot, trust village people the news sprayed like harmattan. Every girl was trying to win one of the actors interests, some even had to give their bodies for free just to get a role, it was really funny, most of them didn’t even have the talent yet they crave to be seen on TV, even if some did have the talent selling their body to get into the industry isn’t the way to go about it( I’m not here to judge anyone but I’m here to make a different)
Call me Lesley Emeka, that’s the name my mum calls me ( she said she once lived in the city, the people she once worked for had two kids Wesley and Lesley, she prayed if she ever has a twins she would give them that beautiful name) but my father he always calls me by my native name (Ojotule because his half Igbo half lgala)you guys already know my dream and what and who I want to be come. It won’t be easy but I’m going to get there someday. Site back and enjoy live in the film industry.

Episode 2
Amaka is the only one I could call a friend, she’s not always there for me but she’s always there when she needs me to work on her father’s farm for free. She came to visit me ( gossip of course) to tell me about the new people in our town, I wasn’t interested until she said it was film people, I was so happy, so much so that I jumped on her and hugged her happily, she was surprise.
AMAKA
Babes are you okay? You want to wound me? What’s with the excitement self?
LESLEY
you won’t understand, you don’t know how long I have prayed to meet one of this people.
AMAKA
Meet them so what would happen? Babes is not people like you they are looking for there, you have no class, no background nothing.
LESLEY
But I have got passion, talents and those are what you can never get ( I told her angrily)
AMAKA
Passion? My sister who passion help? I heard ass, is what gets you there, you give the director a nice and hot sex, he just fix you up, don’t go there fooling yourself about having one stupid passion and talent ( she scoff)
LESLEY
All my life, I have prayed, and write all the stories that came to my head because I believe one day I would use it, I won’t sit here and listen to your rubbish. Please leave my house bad adviser.
AMAKA
(She got up and looked around and laugh) you call this a house? This is a hut not a house my friend, you and your parents are the only ones living in a hut in this village, you should be ashamed of yourself.
LESLEY
ashamed? There’s no shame in poverty, we didn’t choose to be poor it just happen, I’m not ashamed of my status or condition, but in four years time if you come back and still see me in this condition then I will be ashamed..
She hiss and walked away, do I care? I don’t care I really didn’t care, all I care is how to be someone great, how to make my parents proud. I quickly took my bath and hurried to their shooting set, crowd would be an understatement, it was like the coming of Jesus, people were so many, the actor were even finding it hard to walk around with there shooting instruments, some huge guys were pushing the crowd out of the way.
I looked for a place and sat, I waited for them to round up for that day, when everyone had start retiring to their homes before I got up to look for the director. I met one guy with camera, the ID card around his neck say ” Uche”
LESLEY
Hi, good evening Mr Uche
UCHE
Evening beautiful lady,(his eyes rolling all over my body)
LESLEY
I’m looking for the director of this movie
UCHE
standing right in front of you..
LESLEY
What? You are the director? (He look so young)
UCHE
Why? I look so small right? (He giggle)
LESLEY
I’m sorry, but yeah you look so small.
UCHE
Now tell me what I can do for you.
LESLEY
You seem busy, maybe I should come back later?
UCHE
Yeah I’m busy, but I can suspend it for a beautiful girl like you (he wink at me)
LESLEY
I have stories to give to you, but on one condition.

[nextpage title=”episode 3″]
Episode 3
UCHE
(He laughed) you are giving me conditions now? How sweet
LESLEY
Yes sir, it’s my story, so my rules
UCHE
(He laughed hard) your story, but is my money that would produce the movie, so what are we saying? But fine let’s hear your condition.
LESLEY
I want a major role, I want to be the main character.
UCHE
Hmmmmm, you haven’t even gone into any screening, and you want to act? Its not done that way baby.
LESLEY
I don’t need all that, I’m good with this I can prove it.
UCHE
Really? You can prove? OK fine why not come to my hotel room later so you can prove it more better.
LESLEY
What? Your hotel room? I was thinking you will follow me to my house so I can hand you over the stories…
UCHE
Awww, you want me to come to your house? Let’s go then.
My heart was free, I thought all he actually wanted was to help me so I took him to my house, someone who has seen bigger house than mine, what would be the use inviting him to into my house? I asked him to sit outside while I get the script for him ( he corrected me that when we were coming, ” its called script not stories or book) immediately I entered he follow and touched my waist from behind, I froze ” Jesus Christ ” I yell I quickly turn to stare at him.
LESLEY
What are you doing?
UCHE
Nothing much, sitting outside is so boring so I decided to come inside.
LESLEY
Fine, sit down while I find the script sir.
He sat down on my small little bed, staring at my butt like he was going to rape me the next minutes, I was so scared so I opened my bag and brought out all the stories I have written almost all my life and hand it over to him, he took it from me and scan it with his eyes for a while before he said, he would help me. I was so happy, finally my dreams are finally coming true, I knelt down and started thanking him, he pull me up to sit on the bed with him.
UCHE
( he started rubbing my laps) you are a very sexy lady you know, very beautiful.
LESLEY
Tha….thank yo….you sir ( I stuttered)
UCHE
Don’t be shy, I will just do it quickly and get it done with okay?
LESLEY
I’m sorry Uche or whatever your name is, I will not sell my body just to get a role in my own story, I believe my passion will get me there( I got up from the bed)
UCHE
( he got up and held my hair roughly) passion don’t get you there ( he slapped my butt) your fine ass does, give me what I want and tomorrow I will give you a chance to play one role in the movie I’m directing.
LESLEY
Leave my hair alone, it hurt ( I forced myself out of his grip) why is everyone so crazy about this sex issue? People like you are the reasons parents don’t allow their children to go into movie industry because they think everyone is the same, I won’t join that line Mr Uche, without your help I will walk my way to the top. Now leave my house.
He stare at me like I have gone crazy, he moved away from me a little and then he chuckle.
UCHE
Good luck with that baby ( he left my room) I sat back on my bed and inhale before I started to cry, ” lord this people I have long to see for so long are finally with me yet I can’t get close to them” I couldn’t eat anything that evening I cried myself to sleep, no matter what I’m not giving up on my dreams.
The next morning I hurried out to their shooting site, just like the previous day people have already gathered waiting for the actors to come out, I was early too so I got the chance to stand in the front role, that was when I saw her, my mentor the one who inspired me “MERCY JOHNSON” I didn’t even know she was a cast in the movie or she was in my village, I push my way forward and hugged her not minding the crowd, she was so sweet because she hugged me back not minding the rags I had on.
MERCY JOHNSON
you seem so happy to see me
LESLEY
(I released myself from the hug) happy? I’m over joyed ma, I have lived all my life watching your movies.
MERCY JOHNSON
( she smiled) thanks, we are about to start so thanks for the hug anyways. ( She turn to leave) bye
LESLEY
Wait, please can I see you after today’s shooting? Its a matter of live and death.
MERCY JOHNSON
( she looked surprise) OK, I will see you after the shooting then (she touched my checks and walked away)
I’m going to wait here till its all over, if all the men want to sleep with me before they help me she wouldn’t do that.. Oh God let this day be the day you have chose to make me smile.

Episode 4
Continue from the last scene
One part of me prayed for her to look for me in the crowd and the other part of me doubted it, she must have probably forgotten about a “thing” like me, she wouldn’t care to find me but I was wrong, when I heard the director ( Mr UCHE) called it a day, I saw her park her things quickly and joined the crowd, at first I wasn’t sure, I thought she was trying to escape me, then she walked around and around, looking for something or someone that was when my faith lights up, it was my village and no matter how big the market is the blind always knows the way to his home, I entered the crowd and went to hold her hand, immediately she saw me she sign.
MERCY JOHNSON
There you are, I have been looking for you for close to an hour girl
LESLEY
Sorry I got lost in the crowd too.
MERCY JOHNSON
So what is it you wanted to talk to me about?
LESLEY
Please let’s do it in my house please?
MERCY JOHNSON
(She turn to look at his colleagues) hmm hmmm I don’t think that’s a good ideal ( she pause) what’s your name again?
LESLEY
Lesley emaka that’s my name
MERCY JOHNSON
Wow nice name for a village girl (we both laughed) my friends over there are waiting for me so I can’t follow you home, but we can sit somewhere here and talk.
LESLEY
What if I wait till tomorrow when you free to come to my place?
MERCY JOHNSON
( She was silent for a very long time) d–n today’s party and fun…. Let’s go Lesley.
At that moment I believe my instinct are never wrong, in all the people that could be my mentor, my heart chose mercy Johnson, and she didn’t disappoint me. We got to my house which was a hut, she didn’t seem concern that I brought her to a place like that, I offered her a sit which she cheerfully accepted, I quickly cooked something for us both I needed to eat too since the previous evening I have neither eaten non drank anything. I brought the food to her I was thinking she would reject my poor meal but she didn’t she washed her hands and ate with a nobody like me.
MERCY JOHNSON
Oh my God you are a good d–n cook les( she said smiling)
LESLEY
Thanks ma
MERCY JOHNSON
Drop the “ma” stuff it make me feel old ( she chuckles) just call me mercy
LESLEY
I cant call your name ma, permit me to call you Anuty.
MERCY JOHNSON
OK you can can me Anuty….so tell me is there more from where this came from? (She said pointing to the food)
LESLEY
Enough to last for the whole night ma, ( I laughed)
After the meal I parked my plates to the kitchen before I return back to join her outside my house.
MERCY JOHNSON
Forgive my manner Lesley, where are your parents?
LESLEY
Come I will show you.
I held her hand and walked her to our back yard where my parents were both buried, she was silent I guess fighting with her feelings of ” I don’t wanna cry in present of a stranger”
LESLEY
My dad died first, that was two Years ago when I was sixteen and my mom died this year.
She turn to look at me, her tears has already fallen, she looked like she was going to console me but in true scene she needed to be console herself, because she was crying, I moved closer and held shoulder.
MERCY JOHNSON
I’m so sorry about your parents dismay, I can imagine what you been through as a kid.
LESLEY
You know I always thought all those tears you shed in movies were fakes but now I know you are really emotional.
She smiled amidst her tears. I held her hand and walked her back to the front yard where we were sited before.
LESLEY
Take me out of this village please, let me go with you..your house maid, anything you want to use me for I will do just take me away from here ( my tears dropped)
MERCY JOHNSON
( She opened her mouth to say something then closed it back) Lesley don’t cry okay? Please don’t
LESLEY
I’m tired of waking up every morning and finding out I’m still at one spot, I have a lot of dreams to achieve ma.
MERCY JOHNSON
And you are going to achieve them les…we still have a month to spend here, you have just gotten yourself a big sister because we will spend the whole of my stay here together.
I was happy, so happy that I got up and danced she’s really sweet, kind and humble to the call.
After our long talk, it became so late that she couldn’t leave she decided to stay for the night.
I laid beside her and watch her sleep, it was like a dream, the person I always saw on the TV was lying right beside me ( it was a blessing to me) the next morning was Sunday, she said they had a shooting at the river bank and she’s guessing they would have left already, I decided to walk her there since she didn’t know the road too well.

Episode 5

The weeks came and gone so quickly that I didn’t even realize it was time for Anuty mercy to go back to her base, she gave me her home address and ask me to come two weeks after because immediately she get to her base she’s going outside the country for something important, I was sad she was already leaving but was happy very soon I will join her in the city. I wasn’t yet a celebrity but I felt like one do you guys have any ideal how it feels to have a celebrity friend talk more someone who is more like a sister I never had, we were always together Amaka tried to become my close friend because of mercy Johnson and some of her colleague that sometimes come to stay in my place, I gave her her distance, she’s not my friend but an attention seeker, girls that have never spoken to me before now wants to be friends because they want to get closer to my mercy. She gave me an android phone before she left, I wasn’t expecting anything from her, accepting me into her home would be enough for me. She thought me everything I needed to know in the phone before she left.
TWO WEEKS LATER
I travel to her place, she was so welcoming and happy to see me she couldn’t wait to gist me about her trip to London, I was happy too finally I’m out of that village but deep down I know one day I would return to my father’s land my only prayer is I should have made a difference.

My stay with mercy Johnson was the best anyone could ask for, she did everything in her powers to make me comfortable, took me shopping changed all my clothes and taught me how to wear hills.
I never for once told her about my dreams and desire to act, I kept it to myself I wasn’t sure why I didn’t tell her maybe I was waiting for the right time or I wasn’t sure she will help me out.
You guys might probably be wondering how, where and when I met my celebrity crush ( lol) All thanks to mercy who always want to make me fit in, she wants me to be happy and relaxed. She took me to Red carpet where all the celebrities meet to celebrate or showcase one thing or the other. She introduced me to everyone that I am her baby sister ( it felt like heaven shaking hands with the celebrities) we took our sits and waited for the program to start properly. A lady and a guy came out and spoke for a very long time, then an artist came to perform we all got up and dance ( I didn’t dance ooooh, was too shy to take a foot) it was time for award giving, when they call your name you just come out take your award and say a few words. Ini Edo was called out first ( that lady is truly elegant, true beauty) she went out pecked the lady and the guy took her award and just a “thank you” she walked back to her sit. Some other actors were called out too, took their award say a few words then back to their sit.

When they called mercy Johnson for the best actress of the year, I couldn’t help but scream out of joy she hugged me before she went outside to take her award.
MERCY JOHNSON
I want to say thank you to everyone who is here and those watching us at home, I love you ( her tears dropped, she quickly wiped it away) and God bless you all….thank you.

She return back to her sit which was closer to mine, I tapped her hand and told her she did great out there. The last but not the list Frederick Leonard how can I forget the face? Never met him before or even seen any of his movies but his name was what got my interest. I waited for the person to walk out, he was sitting at the back and slowly he made his way to the front. Oh my God his a Nigerian dude, his name sounded like a foreigner but he is pure Nigeria, I stare at him like a lost sheep, his shady eye bra shine bright, his lips picky and cute, my heart was beating fast so fast that I fear mercy would hear the sound.
MERCY JOHNSON
That’s the ladies man, his handsome but also a viper.
I didn’t hear her or should I say I heard her but my voice was lost, my young heart could not handle what it was feeling at that moment, I placed my two hands on my chest watching how his lips moved from every word he spoke.
Mercy notice and tapped me
MERCY JOHNSON
Are you OK?
LESLEY
huh? (I turn to look at her) yeah yeah I’m fine.

He finish his speech with “I love you” who was he referring too? Us? The viewers at home? Or his wife? The thought of him having a wife hurt my young heart that I quickly wave that stupid thought aside.
After the show (well the party was not yet over) I was tired and sleepy so mercy decided to take us home, outside the parking lot she opened the door and asked me to enter, she wanted to see someone before we leave. Before I could say a word she ran back into the hall.

I wanted to tell her I was press but she’s already out of my sight I have to look for the rest room myself. After walking for like 15 minutes I finally found the rest room, I was so press, I quickly ease myself, washed my hands and came out. Then I heard his voice ” d–n it Brenda you know that’s not true, I have nothing to do with that girl she only hugged me as a friend and nothing more” I wanted to ignore the voice and just walk away but no my stupid legs won’t listen it walked till I got to see how the Brenda of a girl slapped him across the face. My mouth flew open, I held my chest out of shock. ” this relationship is over, you think I’m a fool I saw you kissing that lady and you stand there to tell me its just a friendly hug” she told him. I watch him rub his cheeks ” I kissed her and so what? Everyone what’s to eat their own share, I’m enough to go round baby” (he tried to pull her closer and she gave him another slap) ” you bastard, God will punish you for playing with my feelings”( she ran off)
He rub his cheeks again ” that b—h how dare she slap me twice?
LESLEY
You deserve it (he turn to look at me)
FREDERICK
And who the f–k are you?
LESLEY
No one, but a piece of advice your stupidity won’t take you anywhere.
FREDERICK
Anywhere? Are you OK? I just received three different kind of awards tonight and you say ” I can’t get anywhere “?
LESLEY
Let those award fill your empty space, the space in your heart….. ( I stare at him for a while) you are truly what she called you ” a bastard”
I ran off to the parking lot, mercy was already in the car.
LESLEY
Sorry I went to the rest room
MERCY JOHNSON
OK let’s go( she drove out of the parking lot)

Episode 6

I couldn’t sleep that night, all I did was think of Frederick Leonard ( his name stock in my head like gum) I have never felt this way before in my life why is he different or what’s so special about him? Earlier I asked mercy Johnson about Frederick and she told me his every woman’s dream man, his tall, cute and wealthy every girl wants him. Should I just forget this nonsense I’m feeling? God its going to be hard but I will try and do it after all his nothing but a total jerk…
Christmas came so quickly and the year was already coming to an end, mercy decided to throw a party in her house, she invited a lots of guests even director UCHE was there trust me when I say he was shock to see me in Mercy’s house not just that looking all defined and beautiful, I walked up to him and greeted him.
LESLEY
Hi, Mr UCHE
UCHE
I will be damned, what are you doing here?
LESLEY
( I laughed) you don’t need to know what I’m doing here that should be a headache for you…how’s work?
UCHE
Work is good and girl you have really change…you look so pretty.
LESLEY
Thanks. If you would excuse me I have guests to welcome.

I smiled and walked away I could swear his eyes were still on me while I walked away. I went into the kitchen to check on the cooks it was time for them to bring out the spice meat yet nothing was brought out. Paul the chef told me they would be out in a few, I smiled at him and walked out, from no where someone ran into me, letting all his drink pour on my white armless gown, I was so angry but I had to put my anger in check as not to embarrass my sister’s visitor. I was still trying to clean the stain from my clothes when he looked at me with my phone that he has been looking for since he ran into me ” I’m so sor…..( he pause to look at me) wait have we meet before? My heart skipped since that night at red carpet I haven’t seen him or heard anything about him. In fact I was gradually forgetting about him, what the hell is he doing here? ” oh my God I insulted him the day we met, what if he recognized me” I collected my phone from him and ran upstairs.. ” wait please” he screamed after me but I didn’t stop I ran till I enter into my room.

I took a deep breath ” what the hell is he doing here” I just took off my clothes and went into the bath room to shower. Immediately I came out my phone started to ring I took it and to my surprise the screen was broken, so bad that I didn’t know who was calling I just picked the call
LESLEY
Hello!!
MERCY JOHNSON
Where are you? There’s someone I would love you to meet.
LESLEY
Someone accidentally poured drink on me, I came to change my dress.
MERCY JOHNSON
awwwn sorry about that baby, just do quickly alright?
LESLEY
Yes boss ( I joked, she laughed before she hung up)
I opened my bag and looked for something simple to wear then spray my body, did a little make-up before I went downstairs.
Immediately she saw me ( Mercy Johnson) she came and held my hand and walked me to where some people were sited.
MERCY JOHNSON
Daddy meet my friend, sister, husband Lesley Emeka
OLU JACOB
How are you my daughter, (I recognized him I have seen lots of his movies)
LESLEY
Evening sir ( I knelt down to greet him)
OLU JACOB
Awww, she’s so respectful, stand up my daughter.
I greeted all the other guest one after the other before I left to get something to eat (d–n I was so hungry) I went into the kitchen and dish some food for myself. Immediately I came out from the kitchen there he was standing at the door.
FREDERICK
I know you, you are that brat that insulted me that day at the award giving right?
LESLEY
I don’t know what you talking about Sir ( I politely push him out of the way)
FREDERICK
If you don’t know me why did you run earlier and you still running away again.
I stopped on my track, turn to face him.
LESLEY
Yes I was the girl that insulted you, what will you do? pull my hair, or slap me for insulting you huh?
FREDERICK
( he laughed then quickly frown) you think I’m a girl? I don’t do that kind of shit okay?
LESLEY
Whatever!!! Can I go now Mr ?
FREDERICK
I like you, you have guts and for a girl of your age to sound this bold….I’m impressed.
LESLEY
if you would excuse me, my food is getting cold ( I turn to leave) but he pulled me back and my phone fell again
LESLEY
( I screamed at him) you want to finally damage it huh? Are you just ( I calm myself down) don’t dare touch me again.
He picked the phone from the floor, turn it over I guess he was shock how bad the phone had turned.
FREDERICK
I’m sorry, didn’t mean to damage your mobile, I will get you a new one.
I collected my phone from him, stare at him for a while.
LESLEY
I’m sorry for yelling at you….but I don’t need your phone or whatsoever.

I dropped the food on the table and ran into my room, my appetite was already lost, just took off my heels and enter under my duvet and slept. The next morning which was Saturday mercy Johnson came into my room to wake me up.
LESLEY
Good morning.
MERCY JOHNSON
Morning sleepy head. How was your night?
LESLEY
Night was cold, sweet and calm….yours?
MERCY JOHNSON
(She laughed) all this for just your night? Huh you must have had a sweet dream…who was it(she tickle me) who was the cute guy you dreamt of?
LESLEY
No one (I said laughing) please stop.
She stopped and jumped on the bed.
MERCY JOHNSON
Common tell me please ( she wink at me)
LESLEY
( I laughed) honesty I didn’t dream, my night was just good that all.
MERCY JOHNSON
I checked up on you last night but you were sleeping soundly so I just left…it was unlike you, did something happen at the party?
Yeah something happened I met the jerk I’m crushing on, we had a lot of issues and argument but how can I tell her all this?
LESLEY
Nothing happened, I was too tired so I retired to bed.
MERCY JOHNSON
Good, because if anyone say something to hurt you they we have me to face.
Those words made me emotional, she’s truly a God sent and a big sister.

Episode 7
Since it was Saturday mercy Johnson had so many things to do usually on Saturdays so this one wasn’t an exception. We laid on my bed and talked for a while before she ask me to get up and take my shower and then come downstairs for breakfast I nodded my head and head into the bathroom to take my bath.
Around 10am she was all set to leave, she asked if I would like to join her but I decline, I wasn’t feeling too good for outing so I stay back. Immediately she drove out of the compound, I went back into my room and slept.
Some minutes after 12 Danzumi our gate man came and knocked my door, I asked who it was and he said ” madam na Danzumi” I asked him to come inside.
LESLEY
Dan, what is it? ( my eyes still close)
DANZUMI
one man is out there he said he wants to see you.
LESLEY
What man? ( surprise he could speak English that good)
DANZUMI
I asked what his name is but he wouldn’t tell me, he just said I should tell you its important.
I got tired of the questions and answering so I asked him to show the man in, he nodded opened the door and left. Some minutes later he returned back informing me the man was in the living room, I thanked him and he left, I looked my face in the mirror to be sure it wasn’t rough before I went downstairs.
The man had his back turn against the staircase so all I saw was his back, I climbed down the stairs and stood at his back.
LESLEY
Hello, they said you wan…..( I lost my voice immediately he turned his face)
FREDERICK
Hey, you were saying?
LESLEY
What are you doing here Mr?
FREDERICK
Don’t be rude, that’s not the way you welcome visitors
LESLEY
What do you want from me? You ain’t my visitor because I never invited you here.
FREDERICK
Okay fine, I know we didn’t set up in a good kinda way and I’m sorry I just wanna be friends that’s all.
Friends did I just hear him say he wants us to be friends? Has he ever seen where tiger and dogs are friends? Being friends with him is like throwing my heart in the river and I’m not going to do that
LESLEY
I can’t accept your friendship, I’m sorry.
FREDERICK
But why? Why does it seem like you don’t like me?
LESLEY
What? And why should I like you?
FREDERICK
(he chuckles) don’t be silly everyone likes me, so why won’t you?
That got me so annoyed, apart from being a viper and a womanizer his also full of himself, Jesus Christ.
LESLEY
I don’t like you and if that hurts your feelings or record you can hung yourself for all I care, now this should be the last time you visit me.
FREDERICK
(Shock written all over his face) she said she doesn’t like me( he said to himself) wait like seriously you don’t like a cute guy like me? An actor number one finest celebrity? Nah I don’t believe you.
LESLEY
Believe it or not I dislike you, your pride, the way you dress and all these rubbish you have around your neck like a wild dog makes me hate you more.
I could see anger written all over his face, it hurts his pride that everything other girls sees in him that make them run after him is the same thing I’m seeing and I hate him for, he dropped the little gift bag in his hand and walked out without saying a word, I called him to come back and pick his gift but he didn’t turn back. I took the gift inside my room and kept it on the table, not long mercy Johnson return home, with lots of gift for me and a new phone I was surprise how she knew my phone had gone bad.
LESLEY
How did you know my phone got broken?
MERCY JOHNSON
I saw it this morning at the dinning, what happened to the phone? Looks like something that barely survived an accident.
LESLEY
( I giggle) you remember the person I told you accidentally ran into me with his drink last night?
MERCY JOHNSON
Oh! That’s how the phone ended up this bad?
LESLEY
Yeah, thanks for this thou( I kissed her cheeks and ran upstairs with my gifts and new phone)
I tasted all the clothes and shoes she bought for me, it all fitted so well and beautiful.
I went to stand in front of the mirror to see my pink short gown how well it suit my body then my eyes fell on the gift Frederick brought earlier, curiosity took over, I tried to ignore his stupid gift but I could not so I opened it, to my surprise it was a phone not just any kind of phone an iPhone.
I should have been happy right? And just insert my sim and start using it right? Hell no it didn’t move me, being hard on him is the only way to get ride of this nonsense crush. I turn on the phone and to my surprise there was a sim card in it, checked all the contact but found only one which he saved with ” my number ” I laughed so he actually wanted to be friends with me? Hell yes I’m going to call him to come take his stupid phone I told him I didn’t need anything from him…

Episode 8
I called him severely but he didn’t pick up my calls, I turn off the phone and put it bag in the bag, I arranged all my stuff into the place they are suppose to be, change into a crazy jean trouser and a black polo shirt, my hair was rough so I arranged it(lest I forget my hair is my selling point, aunt mercy would always say ” I’m jealous of this hair you have got” lol) I’m a Nigerian, black in beauty but my hair is curly, long and so dark sometimes people mistake me for an half cast. I applied a little make-up, spray my body before I ran downstairs with his gift in hand. Mercy Johnson was in the living room licking ice cream, I asked her about Frederick house address, I could swear she was so shock because her ice cream spoon fell of her hand.
MERCY JOHNSON
What?
LESLEY
Its not what you thinking big sis, its just important I see him please.
MERCY JOHNSON
Les I don’t trust that guy, his everything but not a gentle man, (she pause, inhale) I will drop you
LESLEY
He wouldn’t do anything to hurt me sis, I’m sure of that just give me his address.
MERCY JOHNSON
I swear if he dares hurt you I will kill him
LESLEY
( I smiled) I’m sure of that.
She gave me the address, I hugged her and walked out then I remembered I didn’t carry my new phone the one Anuty mercy bought for me, I ran back into my room and change my sim cards into the new phone before I return back to the living room.
MERCY JOHNSON
Wait, you ain’t going with any car?
LESLEY
You know I don’t know the place, I might get lost if I drive myself, so I will just take a taxi.
MERCY JOHNSON
Yeah you right, please be careful and take care of yourself okay?
LESLEY
Yes boss( I joked, we both laughed before I opened the door and left)
I was thankful I didn’t have to drive myself, his house was very far from ours, how could I drive that far when I’m not even perfect in driving yet, just Two months ago that mercy Johnson taught me how to drive, I’m still learning.
I got to his mansion some minutes after 5pm, I paid the taxi man and dropped.
I knocked at the gate and the gate man opened up, I greeted him he smiled and asked me to enter before he reply to my greeting.
LESLEY
I’m Lesley, and I’m here to see your boss?
GATE MAN
My boss is at home, but his not in a good mood today so you can’t see him.
Frederick is not in a good mood? What could have happened or is it because of what I told him?
LESLEY
He would want to see me, just tell him little blaster is here to see him.
GATE MAN
” Little blaster” that name is so funny( he chuckles dryly)
I watch as he went inside and return back some minutes later.
GATE MAN
You can go in ma.
I smiled and left ” little blaster “? Like seriously? That’s really funny I just gave myself that nickname because of the way I spoke to him before and earlier. I entered into the living room and he wasn’t there, I called his name twice and he didn’t answer me so I sat down and waited for him to come downstairs.
I waited till I was tired, I got up and went upstairs, from one room to another I was busy looking for him till I finally found him.
LESLEY
like seriously? You are in here lying down while I waste my time waiting for you?
He stare at me not saying anything, that hurt being ignore hurts, I felt like crying, my heart was already paining, and my eyes were getting wet.
LESLEY
I only came here to return your gift, I told you I didn’t need anything from you( my voice broke) you can lay on your bed with your high horse attitude you jerk.
I turn my back and left, on my way downstairs he ran and held me, ” I’m sorry” I pressed my hands strongly and finally let the tears drop, he turn me over and wiped my tears.
LESLEY
Get your hands off me you a—–e, you think its fun to be ignored? ( I pull myself away from him and continued descending the stairs, he still ran after me and held my waist this time.
LESLEY
(I inhale angrily)leave me alone ( I yelled)
FREDERICK
I’m sorry, I truly am please do not be mad, I was only angry about the way you treated me in your house.
LESLEY
I called, you didn’t pick, and now you ignored me like I wasn’t there.
FREDERICK
I’m sorry.( he turn me to face him)
I stare at his pleading eyes, my heart got soften and beating fast, I pull myself away from him.
LESLEY
I would love to take my leave now
FREDERICK
What? So soon? Please stay for a while.
LESLEY
I can’t, it’d getting late and I wouldn’t want to go home late.
FREDERICK
I promise to take you home please.
Why ain’t I shouting and walking out on him? I just found myself accepting. He walked me back to his bedroom, he climbed into his bed and asked me to sit beside him, I reluctantly accepted. He brought out his laptop and we watch some movie together ( or should I say ” I” because all he did was stare at me)
LESLEY
Your eyes are going to put a hole in my body, so please can you stop staring at me like that?
FREDERICK
I’m sorry, but is this your real hair?
LESLEY
By the gift of God yeah it is.
FREDERICK
I will be damned, can I touch it to be sure?
LESLEY
( I stare at him angrily before I told him) yes but don’t rough my hair.
FREDERICK
I sure won’t.
He touched my hair nicely and sweetly, I couldn’t help but enjoy what his hand does to my hair.
LESLEY
that’s enough, I want to leave now.
FREDERICK
Did I do something bad again? If I did I’m sor…
LESLEY
Don’t be, you didn’t do anything wrong ( I cut him short) its getting dark my sis would be worried by now.
FREDERICK
Can you at lest tell me your real name….little blaster isn’t a name please.
LESLEY
Lesley, I’m Lesley Emeka
FREDERICK
Frederick Leonard, you already know me but I feel its right to introduce myself properly.
LESLEY
can we now go please?
He nodded his head and lead the way out, immediately we got outside his compound Brenda ( the lady that slapped him at red carpet) walked in looking at me with rage and hatred.

[nextpage title=”episode 9″]
Episodes 9
I stare at her frighten of what she might to do me, I moved a little out of fear and hide at Frederick back.
FREDERICK
What are you doing here Brenda?
BRENDA
What do you mean by what I’m doing here, well if you must know I came to see you (she moved closer and rubbed his half bare chest) I missed you baby, I miss us.
FREDERICK
There’s no more “us” the last time I checked you ended the so called relationship so I don’t understand why you are here.
BRENDA
Common Freddie I was just angry, I have forgiven you can we go inside? (She whisper something into his ears loud enough that I heard) I missed your di*k
FREDERICK
(He pushed her away from himself) as you can see I have a guest and I’m taking her home can’t stand and listen to this nonsense. (He turn to face me) get into the car Lesley.
I quickly nodded my head and opened the door for myself, as I was about to enter she made her way to me smoothly and quickly, pull me over and gave me a dirty slap.
BRENDA
You want to share my man with me? Do you know who the hell I am (she was about to slap me again before Frederick pull her away from me)
FREDERICK
Have you gone in sense? How dare you hit her?BRENDA
Yes I’m in sense and I’m ready to kill anyone who stands in my way, I love you and I’m going to stand and fight for your love.
FREDERICK
Oh Brenda, if I ever felt anything for you, you just ruined it by hitting this girl… I don’t want to ever see you in my house, neither in my office because if you do, I swear you will regret it ( his voice high, his eyes red like hell)
BRENDA
You telling me all this because of this little brat? This child?
I have been quiet because I didn’t want to create a scene, I was scared because I didn’t know what would be her plans for me, now that she slapped me I was ready to let that go then she opened her mouth and called me “a brat, and a child? That was way out of the line. I push Frederick out of the way and gave her a very dirty slap too, everyone was shock it took her 60 seconds before she got herself, she tried to return the slap, I held her hand midway and twisted it to her back painfully.
LESLEY
I was never here to take your guy from you, I only came here to return his stupid gift and if its please you to know his not my type of man, I don’t want every woman’s man( she was screaming in pain, but I didn’t let her go) if you are a b—h I’m not and please don’t you ever refer to me as a child… You have no idea what I’m capable of alright?
She nodded her head and pleaded I released her, I turn to look at the gate man and he was busy laughing at the drama.
FREDERICK
Its okay Les, you gotta let her go please.
I stare at him angrily before I released her, I don’t like fighting and it’s one of the many reasons why I don’t look for trouble if I’m provoked it feels as if I’m possess by something because I don’t know where that strength comes from no matter how big you are I will beat you to stupor.
Immediately I released her she held her hand in pain and ran off, the gate man laughed more. My anger had reach the final leave, just turn my back and started heading for the gate too, he ran after me and begged I return back to the car, I didn’t say any not because I didn’t want to but my words would be so bad so I kept quiet. I opened the gate and walked out surprisingly Brenda was still outside the gate, her hand hurt so badly that she couldn’t start her car I stopped gave her a hard stare before I stopped a taxi and left.
I got home some minutes after 7pm, mercy Johnson was still in the living room where I left her earlier, immediately she saw me she ran to hug me.
MERCY JOHNSON
Are you alright, did he do anything to hurt you? I swear if he
LESLEY
I’m fine sis ( I cut her short) he was totally a gentle man
MERCY JOHNSON
What did you even go there for?
I was tired of hiding things from her so I asked her to sit down, I told her everything immediately we sat down, from my feelings to when I meet Brenda and down to what took place this evening, she felt sorry for me.
MERCY JOHNSON
You didn’t do anything bad Les, you only defended yourself from that Brenda and pray I don’t ever see her because she would receive more than a twisted hand from me.
that made me smile, knowing I have a friend, sister who is ready to defend and fight for me made me more happy and emotional.
MERCY JOHNSON
Frederick Leonard that I know isn’t the love type Les, he would only hurt you…so please get rid of that crush before it turns to love….don’t want to see you get hurt okay?
nodded my head and hugged her, she hugged me back telling me everything would be okay.
She waited for me to calm down before she ask me to make that kind of food I made for her the say she first came to my house.
I laughed indeed she really loved that native food of mine

Episode 10
The year came to an end but everything still look the same in my eyes, except for the fact mercy wanted me to return back to school, she register me in one evening class for the preparation of the jamb ahead. since that day I have neither seen nor heard from Frederick well I was kind of thankful, his presence makes it unbearable to forget about him all I did was watch most of his movie on YouTube..
It was time for mercy Johnson to travel out for another movie shoot but this time she’s going to America for it, I have no passport yet, and beside if I did have a passport I can’t just abandon my lesson and travel. She made everything available for me before she left, she would have traveled with the crews but because I wouldn’t let her go she stayed a day more before she finally left.
Home alone movie if you have watch that movie then you will understand what I was going through no friends, no company it was really hell and d–n I miss her so much. My routine was wake, eat, lesson and back home it was really crazy I wish I have friends around but hell no I was too scared to make friends because I felt everyone is like Amaka who makes friends with you because they want to use you.
There was no time mercy didn’t call me, once she’s less busy she would call to check up on me and it felt so great.
TWO WEEKS AFTER
I had refuse to drive myself to the lesson center, I was having a serious headache I could have stayed at home but what’s the point when I don’t even have anyone to talk to, I just stopped a taxi and went for my classes after the lessons was over, everywhere was cloudy it looks like it was going to rain ( I wonder why its usual for rain to fall around this time of the year) I waited for a taxi for close to 35 minutes yet non came so I decided to walk a little maybe I will get a taxi in front. I walked and walked till it finally start raining, ” oh good finally I will go home wet” I said to myself.
A car that had already passed me reversed back and stop, I didn’t know who it was because the car was dark from the inside but I was very soon the person could see me clearly. I didn’t stop walking I continued if the goat thinks its fun to walk in the rain more less stand in it he should come down let’s talk in the rain, like he read my thoughts he came down from his car with an umbrella, he ran to catch up with me.
FREDERICK
Hey Les…( I haven’t turn to look at his face but his voice sold him out, slowly I turn to look at him shock and surprise) where are you going to in this heavy rain?
LESLEY
House of course and you where are you going to?
FREDERICK
I’m just closing from work,heading home
LESLEY
Good for you, can I go now?
FREDERICK
Are you still mad at me for what happened at my place the last time?
LESLEY
( I stare at him angrily) give me a reason why I shouldn’t?
FREDERICK
Look let’s leave this rain, I can do all the apologies later please
LESLEY
I’m almost home, so thank you, you can run along sir.
FREDERICK
Why are you so stubborn Les? Common get into the car please.
LESLEY
I’m all soaked if I get into that car, I will just mess up your sit.
FREDERICK
I’m not complaining so get in, you gonna catch a fever Les
Yeah he was right if I don’t enter that car I’m going to catch a fever and I’m not even sure if I will see a taxi.
LESLEY
Okay let’s go.
He smiled and went to open the door for me and I entered, he he went to the driver side and entered too.
FREDERICK
Look I’m sorry I didn’t call you all those times or come looking for you I was out on business just return back two nights ago and beside I don’t have your number.
LESLEY
okay ( was all I could say)
We got to my gate and he horn for the gate man to open up, he came out to be sure who was driving in, his boss is away and I myself didn’t go out with a car. When he was sure who it was he returned back and opened the gate.
Frederick parked in the empty space in front of our compound.
FREDERICK
And here we are, so you giving me your number?
LESLEY
No I’m not, come inside for a tea… Well that’s if you care for( I opened the door and came out “sure I care” he said before I shut the door)
Immediately I entered the living room I turn off the cold AC and on the heater so the room could be warm.
LESLEY
Have a sit, will be right back.
Ran upstairs and took off all the wet clothes on my body, took a warm shower, dried my hair and let it fall on my body just like how the whites does it. I didn’t need to do make-up its not like I’m going out or trying to impress anyone, just wore a big sweater and a jean trouser, spray my body before I went downstairs to meet him.

RUTH
Preparations should be made for the prince return.
CHICHI
When is he coming back?
RUTH
The queen didn’t mention it but I’m guessing its tomorrow.
AMARA
In this palace there’s nothing like guess we act with fact, you better go back and ask her else you will be the one to face her wrath alone ( she said angrily)
CHICHI

Chichi walked in looking like someone who has just seen a ghost.
” she slapped you too ( they both chorus)
CHICHI
She didn’t slap me, she insulted all my generations bore and yet unborn… But I got my answer ( she laughed) the Prince is coming back tomorrow.
AMARA
( She sign and held her chest) sometimes I wish the king was still alive, him alone knows how to keep her in check.
RUTH
I wish he was too, I just pray the prince is not a monster like his mother ( she whisper)
AMARA
Well I heard the prince is like his late father, handsome and caring ( she whispered too)

They all nodded their heads and went back to their various duties. (Light fade out)

Episode 15
I saw him entering one of the rooms, I ran after him and pull him forcefully to face me, he turn and looked at me with cold eyes.
LESLEY
Why didn’t you tell me you were the supposed Prince?
FREDERICK
How I’m I suppose to know I was acting with you? Did you ever told me you wanted to be an actress, did you even called me to tell me about your plans? ( he pause and folded his both hands across his chest) I called you last month day and night to check up on you and you never told me a thing( I was beginning to feel guilty) I went through the script my manager gave me I accepted to play this role because I wanted to help the upcoming stars, I didn’t care to ask of the other cast I would be working with because I thought you all stranger and you dare wanna put the blame on me?
I wanted to say something but d–n words failed me, he called me severely and I didn’t for once tell him I was going into acting, its not in my nature to drop the blame on people but that’s what I have just done.
He waited for me to say something, but I just stood looking at him like a dummy.
FREDERICK
You can’t talk? Alright
I watched him walk away, I return back to meet mercy Johnson outside.
LESLEY
Why didn’t you tell me Frederick Leonard is the prince I’m suppose to love in the movie sis?
MERCY JOHNSON
I wanted to but thought I should make it a surprise since you guys are getting alone so well these days.
LESLEY
Well I just ruined that by accusing him for what he didn’t even do ( my tears drop)
MERCY JOHNSON
Common Les, I’m sorry I didn’t tell you, its all my fault not his neither are they yours.( she wiped my tears) this movie is just starting you guys will have enough time to settle I promise, now let’s get you home.
I got home and I couldn’t sleep, my appetite was lost, the cast ate the food we use for prince bob’s return but I didn’t eat, mercy did everything to make me eat or even smile but non worked, she gave up and went to bed.
The next day I picked up my phone to check if he had called or texted me but he didn’t, my heart felt a little hurt. I got up and quickly took my shower, got dressed and ran downstairs.
LESLEY
Good morning sis
MERCY JOHNSON
Morning Les, how was your night?
LESLEY
Bad, but I’m better now thanks….how was yours?
MERCY JOHNSON
Same here…..you should park more clothes you ain’t coming back home til the movie shoot is over because starting from today you will be working over night too.
LESLEY
Wow, I was thinking we will be coming home
MERCY JOHNSON
You coming home because the location of the movie isn’t out side your town baby, the director said it has to stop.
LESLEY
Alright, I will just pack a few things.
I ran upstairs and arranged my stuff in a big bag before I return downstairs to meet mercy.
I was practicing my lines till we got to the location, I looked around for Frederick but couldn’t find him, I meet the cast that’s playing the role of maid chichi, I asked her if she has seen Frederick and she told me the last time she saw him was last night with me.
Wow she did see us last night, what if we were doing something bad that’s how she could have caught us?
I gave up looking for him, I went to the rooms meant for the female cast to change into the maid’s wear. Immediately I finished dressing and stepped out I saw him coming out from the other room, I want to say Hi to him but he just walked away like he didn’t see me.
It shouldn’t have hurt me right but d–n I was hurt my heart aches and I wish there was something I could do about it.
The cast playing amara came to call me that the shot was starting, I wiped the tears that had already dropped off my face before I ran out.
DIRECTOR
Lesley where the hell have you been, you haven’t even done your make-up….. I don’t have all day young lady.
MERCY JOHNSON

She waited for him to go before she went downstairs to inform the queen lunch was already.
RUTH

QUEEN

RUTH
Lunch is ready my lady.
QUEEN.
My son just left for his Chambers, I don’t think he would be coming out anytime soon so take his food upstairs and have amara bring mine to my room.
RUTH

QUEEN

RUTH
Yes my queen.
She went into the kitchen to meet the other maids.
AMARA
Thank God you didn’t return with a slap this time around.
CHICHI
My sister I’m surprise myself, so what did she say?
RUTH
I should serve her son in his room and stand there till he finish eating. Amara should serve her her meal in her room and we should prepare something delicious for her special guest tonight
AMARA
Then what did you tell her?
CHICHI
What do you mean by ” what did you tell her” what would she have said apart from ” yes my queen”?
RUTH
Don’t mind her, leave her to be asking me blind questions…. Please let me go and serve the prince his food and juice before I receive another slap today again.
AMARA
I don’t want to receive slap either ( they all laughed)
Ruth dish the Prince’s food, and added the juice before she took it to his room, she knocked twice before the prince ask her to come inside.
She dropped the tray in her hand on the table, opened the juice and poured some in the glass cup.
PRINCE BOB
I only asked for juice Ruth
RUTH
My queen asked me to serve you lunch.
PRINCE BOB
Oh! I see…. Alright thanks.
Ruth dish the food into a plate for the prince and moved to stand close to the door.
He stare at her and smiled.
PRINCE BOB
You free to go Ruth.
But she didn’t move, she know its not right to disobey the prince but the Prince look more understanding than his mum.. .he would understand.
PRINCE BOB
She asked you to wait till I finish eating, didn’t she?
Ruth just nodded her head.
PRINCE BOB
( He sign) that woman she’s still the same after all this years? Well you have to do as she has said to avoid her wrath, my mother can be so annoying sometimes.
Ruth was happy the Prince also knows his mother is annoying.
PRINCE BOB
Sit down, you can’t just stand there like that when you ain’t even a cop.
RUTH
Thanks my Prince but I dare not sit with royals, I’m not worthy.
PRINCE BOB
Royals, blue blood, non royals we are all one, my dad wasn’t born a king, he inherited it, and same goes to me….everyone is equal in the eyes of God so sit.
Ruth hesitated before she sat down on the sofa in his room, her heart is on fire she’s praying the Queen dosn’t come inside and meet her sitting in her son’s room because if she does? It would be her last day on earth.
PRINCE BOB
You look nervous Ruth, relax my mum won’t enter my room without knocking.
She felt a bit at ease she sat quietly and waited for the prince to start eating.
He closed his laptop and went to the table where his food is, took a sip from his juice before he asked.
PRINCE BOB
Have you eaten?
RUTH
Not yet my Prince…. I will eat later my Prince.
PRINCE BOB
Good, join me than
RUTH
( Looking so shock) what?
PRINCE BOB
I said join me
RUTH
My prince, ( she quickly went on her knees, tears threatening to fall from her eyes) my Prince eating with you is like telling the gods I’m tired of living and giving them the permission of taking my life ( the tears finally dropped) please my prince I’m not worthy to eat with you.
Prince bob got up and helped her to her feet.
PRINCE BOB
Are you scared of my mother or you think you ain’t worthy of sharing my food?
She bend her head in tears not knowing what to say. Prince bob used his hand to wipe away her tears.
PRINCE BOB
My mother would not know you shared a meal with me, I’m not going to tell her neither will you so you have nothing to fear ( he lift Her face up) its an order join me let’s eat.
He went back to his sit, she walked slowly like a snail till she got to the table and shakily picked up a spoon and started eating.

Ruth and the prince got along so well, they talked and laughed over so many things, for a minute she forgot about the queen, she forgot about her fears of being caught, she just relax and enjoy the moment she was having with the prince. When they finish eating, Ruth got up and arrange the used plates.
RUTH

The senator’s daughter had arrived the palace with her body guards, well dress and looking pretty she hasn’t met the prince one on one but she has seen his picture, the queen showed it to her the last time she visited her.
The queen hugged her and welcomed her into her home.
QUEEN
I’m so happy you came at the short notice
CLARA
( she smiled) my queen you know I wouldn’t want to miss a night with the prince.
QUEEN
Awwwwn that’s so sweet. I will have someone call him for you.
Ruth came to the living room to serve them drink, she greeted Clara she replied with a wave of hand.
QUEEN
Since you already here, go inside and get my son for me( she told Ruth)
RUTH
Yes my lady.
She bend her knee a little and excused herself, she went to the prince door and knocked softly.
PRINCE BOB

She opened the door and went in closing it behind her, the prince was surprise to see her and she wasn’t holding anything in her hands.
RUTH
Greetings my prince( she bend her knees)
PRINCE BOB
Greetings Ruth, how are you
RUTH
Very well my Prince, how’s my prince doing?
PRINCE BOB

RUTH
The queen demands your presence downstairs
PRINCE BOB
Can’t I just have some time to myself? What is it she wants?
RUTH
No idea my prince. May I take my leave now?
PRINCE BOB
Yes you free to go
She bend her knees again and exit.
The prince stayed back in bed for close to an hour before he went into his bathroom and took his bath, changed into something simple and went downstairs.
The queen and Clara were laughing before he walked in on them. Immediately Clara saw him her laugh turn to blush, she got up and greeted him. The queen introduced them both
PRINCE BOB
Nice to meet you Clara.
CLARA
Same here, and I must confess you look even more handsome in person compare to the photos mum showed me
PRINCE BOB
( He smiled) I will take that as a complement. Thanks
Amara came and inform the Queen dinner was served and left almost immediately.
QUEEN
Kids let’s go to the dinning, food is served.
They all got up and went to the dinning room to eat, the Queen eat quickly and excused them so they could have some privacy and talk much better. Prince Bob has nothing against Clara but just a look at her he already knew her kind, beside he told his mother ” I like them black” she is no different with the white ladies he left back in the state.
After dinner was over, they retired to the prince Chambers where they talked about, politics, life style and other things…. The way she spoke sold her out but just to be sure his guess was right he throw her his final test.
PRINCE BOB
Can you eat with your servant?
CLARA
What? God forbid I can’t, in fact why should I? The whole senator’s daughter eating with slaves? My prince I will never do that.
PRINCE BOB
Yeah I thought as much too, how can a beautiful girl like you eat with pigs? I understand you well dear.
She smiled thinking prince bob was praising her if she knew that was her final test she would have think twice before answering.

[nextpage title=”episode 18″]
Episode 18 continued from the movie scene
The prince having seen through Clara knew she can’t make a better queen, as much as he hate to admit his late father married a wrong wife( who happens to be his mother) if he won’t be lying to himself he knows his mother his heartless and treat the poor with so much crusty and harshness. He got up and smiled at Clara.
PRINCE BOB
It was fun having you around Clara, its time for me to go to bed…..my guard will show you out.
CLARA
( Her face full with surprise) show me out? I thought I’m going to spend a night in your room so we could know each other better?
PRINCE BOB
Its not in my principle to be spending a night together with someone who isn’t my bride, beside there’s nothing more to know about you.
CLARA
I don’t understand bob, you don’t like me? I’m rich, my father is a senator who wouldn’t want me?
PRINCE BOB
I haven’t said I don’t want you but at lest I’m grateful to know you smart enough to know you ain’t wanted( his smile never left his face for once)
CLARA
(She scoff) bob not marrying me will be your lose and your greatest mistake, do you know how many suitors I turn down because I wanted to wait for you, because I thought you sensible enough to know my worth.
Prince bob tried to hold back the laughter but couldn’t, how can one person be this silly, as beautiful as she looks it’s really “beauty without brains”
CLARA
And what’s so funny ( her eyes getting wet)
PRINCE BOB
All those guys that came as a suitor are just there because you rich, and the once you thought are rich on their own….just want in conjunction not marriage…. Look I’m sorry for laughing at you, you beautiful, and smart but your characters are lacking, if you can just add a little effort to your characters than to your fashion in a day you won’t be able to stand the men that would come running after you.
The tears fell from her eyes, his words didn’t get to her at all, she’s just hurt because she wasted all those years waiting for a handsome dude who turns out to be a fool.
Her tears weak his heart, he hate to make people cry, he return back to his sit and held her hands.
PRINCE BOB
I’m sorry if my words hurt you, I’m a blunt person….deep down I already know I can’t marry you what will be the point sleeping with you or fooling you for a long time?
CLARA
( She released her hands from him and got up angrily) you will regret it you fool, my father must hear of this. ( she hiss and walked out)
She ran downstairs, luckily the queen was there relaxing with a bottle of red wine and groundnut. Clara ran and passed her without saying a word to her, the queen was so surprised h
She got up quickly and ran after her but Clara wouldn’t stop she got into her car and drove away leaving her guards behind due to anger.
QUEEN
What happened in there, what did bob do to this girl huh? (She asked herself before she return back in side)
She went to bob’s room in anger, and entered without knocking.
QUEEN
What happened bob, why did Clara left like that? What did you say to that poor girl
PRINCE BOB
Mum I just told her she can’t sleep in my room, and she took it the wrong way by saying I would be a fool if I reject someone like her.
QUEEN
Why would you tell her not to sleep in your room? She’s your guest and your fiancé.
PRINCE BOB
Point of correction mum, she’s your guest and ( he chuckles) fiancé what? Look mum I can’t marry that girl she can’t rule with me on the throne, she lacks home bringing.
QUEEN
But son love they said settled everything, you can change her.
PRINCE BOB
I can’t change her mum( he yell then reduced his voice) I can’t be ruling my subjects and be teaching an uncultured queen how to rule beside me.
QUEEN
Think of what her father can do for this community if you marry his daughter.
PRINCE BOB
Mum please I’m tired of this conversation, I’m feeling sleepy mum.
She stare at him angrily before she left.
He jumped on his bed and laid still thinking of what he has just done ” its the first time I ever yelled at my mum, bob what’s wrong with you” he scolded himself.
He picked his phone and called his friend Mickey, they talked for a while before he slept off.

His not ready to ruin the sweet friendship going on between them. He tried so hard in hiding his feelings, but anytime he sees Ruth playing with any of the guards he gets jealous and refuse to be served by Ruth.
And tonight is one of those nights he has refuse to be served dinner in his Chambers by Ruth, earlier he saw her talking and laughing with one of the palace guards, the way they laughed and hit each other playfully made him jealous. When the guard came inside and demanded to see amara, Ruth told him amara isn’t too well so they asked her to retire for the night, whatever he need he should just say.
GUARD
The prince demand his dinner be brought by either amara or chichi. ( he exit immediately he deliver his message)
Ruth wanted chichi to go serve the prince since that’s what he wants, but her inner guts told her to disobey him by taking the food to him herself, whatever is wrong they should talk it out like too friends and adult.
She dish the food, took two spoons and went to the prince Chambers, she knocked thrice before he asked her to come inside.
She entered the room and he wasn’t there, she wonder where he was before he asked her to come inside. She placed his dinner on the small table closer to his bed before she sat down and waited for him, not long he came out from the bathroom bare chested, she turn to look at him but immediately turn her face to the other side when she saw his bare chest.
RUTH
I’m sorry, I didn’t know you were in the bathroom.
PRINCE BOB

Ruth turn to face him, not minding his bare chest even thou it makes her feel uncomfortable, she got up from her sit and went to stand in front of him.
RUTH
What did I do to offend my Prince? You always like it when I serve you dinner what happened? (She moved more closer, staring at his eyes)
PRINCE BOB
Nothing, I just don’t want you to serve me( he lied)
RUTH
I hate to say this my Prince but that’s a lie, there’s a reason and you have to tell me now.
PRINCE BOB
I said there’s nothing wrong ( he half yell)
It frightened Ruth, her eyes started to get wet, she moved back a little and bend her knee, turn her back to leave, but before she turn the tears has already fallen. She walked to the door and held the handle.
PRINCE BOB

He walked up to her and turn her to face him.
PRINCE BOB
I’m sorry I yelled at you, I swear I didn’t mean to please can you forgive me?
RUTH
Just tell me what I have done wrong my prince ( she cried)
PRINCE BOB
(He turned his back against her) you haven’t done anything wrong Ruth, I’m just ( he pause for a while before he spoke again) I’m just jealous, anytime I see you with those guards playing it breaks my heart, it drives me mad.
RUTH
( she went and stand in front of him) jealous? But why my Prince? All those guards you see me with, I have no feelings for any of them I’m just being friendly with them that’s all.
PRINCE BOB
The play is too much, like today I saw you both playing and hitting each other.
RUTH
That was just a harmless play my prince. Beside don’t you want me to get married some day? I need to get closer to them because you never can tell where my husband might come out from. Why are you even jealous?
The Prince moved closer to her and held her waist firmly, she was surprise for months that they have been friends he has never held even her hand, she stare at his brown dark eyes.
Prince has different feels should he tell her how he feels or not ” d–n I will take that risk, can’t afford to lose her to one of those guards” he lowered his lips and kissed her, Ruth was shock her eyes were wild open due to the shock, she pull away from him so quickly.
RUTH
What are you doing my prince?
PRINCE BOB
I’m jealous because I’m in love with you Ruth, you drive me crazy and make my heart beat ten times than usual….. I really really do love you.
RUTH
But what about Clara? What will the queen say?
PRINCE BOB
I have nothing to do with Clara I don’t even love her its you I love and forget about the Queen I will handle her.
RUTH
I’m just scar…..( he cut her short by placing his hand on her lips)
PRINCE BOB
Don’t be scared, I will protect you.
He pulled her closer to himself, and stare at her beautiful eyes, ” oh how I so much love you ” he said to himself before he placed his lips on hers. Ruth relaxed her body, even thou she dare not dream to have prince but in her heart she knows she loves him, she allowed herself to relax and seconds later she started to respond to his kiss.

DIRECTOR
Camera rolling, ready? And action.
Prince bob lowered his lips and kissed her, not long Ruth responded to his kiss. The Queen saw when Ruth was going upstairs to serve her son and had decided to confirm if the rumors she has been hearing is true, so she tiptoe from behind so Ruth won’t notice her she was following her, after listening to all their conversation she couldn’t control her anger anymore she push the door open.
Ruth quickly pull away from prince bob, her body shaking hoping the Queen wouldn’t kill her but before she could finish her prayer the queen pulled her forward and gave her three dirty slap repeatedly, she was about to give her the fourth one when Prince bob got himself and pull Ruth to hide behind him.
QUEEN
How dare you seduce this king of this land, what an abomination, ( she try to pull her from bob’s back)
PRINCE BOB
Stop it mother, she wasn’t trying to seduce me, in fact what you just saw was me showing her how deep my feelings for her runs.
QUEEN
( She gave him two dirty slap across the face) if its the love portion talking I will make sure I slap it all out from your system, have you gone mad?
PRINCE BOB
All my life as a child, you never for once hit me, but today you slapped me twice because I find happiness in her?
QUEEN
You disappoint me son, after everything your father and I did to make you a better man and king you chose to be with this thing? (She said pointing to Ruth)
PRINCE BOB
The girl you refer to as a ” thing” is the one who has capture your son’s heart mother.
QUEEN
Over my dead body will I ever let that happen…. Not while I’m still alive.
PRINCE BOB
Mum why are you just being wicked, my late father you to tell me a story when he was still alive how poor your family was, very poor that they couldn’t feed twice a day, he saw you and fell in love, his parents accepted you without argument or scoff…. How come you forgot your own root and treat others with so much crusty and wickedness?
The Queen gave him another dirty slap.
QUEEN
shut up your mouth, how dare you tell me about my past, if you must know I worked my way into your father’s heart.
PRINCE BOB
That’s all you can do mother, hit us but as long as I’m alive? She’s going to sit on the throne with me as my Queen.
(The Queen lift up her hand to slap him again but stopped mid way) over my dead body will I let that happen.
PRINCE BOB
So be it mother, if you do not want to bless our marriage then you can just die and let the gods bless us.
The Queen was more than surprise to hear her son wish her death, her anger boiled double, she opened the door and called for guards. Three guards ran in immediately.
QUEEN
I want you to bundle this girl out of my palace, from today she’s here by an outcast…. If she try to prove stubborn kill her.
The guards were surprise at her command, they stood and look at each other not knowing what to do.
RUTH
Please my Queen, I have no where else to go please( she cried kneeling before the Queen)
QUEEN
What are you fools still doing there? Take this fool out of my sight and out of my kingdom
PRINCE BOB
( he lift Ruth up) if you dare lay your hands on your Queen to be let the gods find you guilty of rebellion and conspiracy and struck you with lightening.
The guards a moved back from Ruth, the Queen has the power to command but the Prince is the law of their kingdom, they dare not defile him and face the gods.
QUEEN
His not your the king, and obviously I’m still the Queen defiling me is death, you either take this witch out or die by my hands.
The guards knew better than to defile the queen she can kill without even thinking it.
Two of the guards went behind the Prince and pulled Ruth by force and were struck dead immediately by lightening, the third guard ran out due to fear and surprise.
The Queen was more than shock too, what just happened? Do it mean the gods have chosen her to be the next queen of this kingdom? She asked herself
QUEEN
this fight is far from over you witch( she hissed before she left the room)
Prince bob crossed the two dead bodies on the floor and went to hug Ruth.
PRINCE BOB
Stop crying my love, we are going to be fine.
RUTH
What in gods name just happened my Prince? You spoke and it came to be.
PRINCE BOB
I’m surprise myself I only said that to frighten them but I guess the gods just prove to us and to them that we are destine to be together.
Ruth wiped her tears and held his cheeks.
RUTH
You got slapped because of me, I’m so sorry ( she cried)
PRINCE BOB
( He smiled and held her cheeks too)you got slapped because of me too.
RUTH
Does it hurt? I mean your cheeks
PRINCE BOB
Nothing that a kiss can’t heal, kiss me and I won’t even remember I was slapped.
She smiled brought her lips closer to kiss him
PRINCE BOB
Wait let me close the door, don’t want anybody to disturb our kiss ( he winked at her)
They both laughed, he moved closer to the door and close it before they started kissing not minding the two dead bodies in the room.

NEXT DAY.
The queen left home very early taking one guard and a maid with her, they drove for close to two hours before they got to their destination. The guard parked and she dropped from the car and asked them to wait for her here. She entered the dirty compound that has charms all over and knocked. Not long the native doctor appeared behind her.
NATIVE DOCTOR
A rat does not run in the day time for nothing ( his voice frighten her, she quickly turn her back to face him) its after something or something is after it.
QUEEN
Good day wise one.
NATIVE DOCTOR
What you seek is beyond my power, I can not help you madam.
QUEEN
I haven’t stated my mission Ezemo
NATIVE DOCTOR
What an elder see just sitting on the floor, a child won’t see even if he climbed a mountain.
QUEEN
I want that girl out of the way, how can my son be in love with that thing?
NATIVE DOCTOR
What you saw last night, the two guards who wanted to attack her they died didn’t they?
QUEEN
I don’t know how my son did it, he said it and it happened the way he said it.
NATIVE DOCTOR
Whatever happened last night wasn’t your son’s doing but hers. Her great grandmother was a bride to the god of thunder and lightening, when your son made the decision to marry her, her grandmother’s spirit went into her, when the guards touched her the god of thunder became jealous and struck them.
QUEEN
( Looking surprise) but Ruth is not his bride why would he be jealous?
NATIVE DOCTOR
( He laughs) what you see is bigger than what you do not know….the god of thunder struck them dead because his bride was in the body of Ruth and not to forget Ruth is his granddaughter.
QUEEN
(If she like she should be god of thunder herself, I will still kill her. She thought inwardly) wise one you don’t understand, I want my son to marry a girl from a wealthy home, not that poor maid.
NATIVE DOCTOR
There’s a saying ” if I’m not up to your class, make me to be among your class” if you think she’s not up to your son’s level, why not brush her up and make her your class?
QUEEN
It’s a waste of time coming here, the person that directed me here if I had not known her for a very long time I would have cursed her with my royal authority. You are fake you can’t kill just a little girl. ( she turn her back and starting walking away.
The native doctor laughed and laughed, he disappeared and appeared before the Queen.
NATIVE DOCTOR
You can go else and ask them to kill your son’s wife to be, they would gladly do it because all the want is money and not what the gods says. If your son has taken the purity of that child( Ruth) they become one bone, one body and one blood….whatever affect the eyes will always affect the nose. Be wise.
QUEEN
What do you mean by that? I don’t understand your proverbs.
NATIVE DOCTOR
If the Prince make love to her they are bound to become one, heavy rain will pour, lighting and thunder will takes turn around the palace.
QUEEN
My son can not bring himself to low to sleep with that things….he has got taste that I know.
( he disappeared but his voice was still heard by the Queen) if she dies the prince dies too, whatever pain she feels they would both feel it…think twice before hurting your son.
The queen seriously wanted to believe the native doctor but her doubt was bigger, she got into her car and asked the driver to take her to any nice native doctor he knows around. The guard nodded and started the car

Immediately Ruth left the room, she place the child back on the bed and removed something from her breast and added into the boy’s food. She sat back and carried the food to feed him but changed her mind… The remaining content she decided to pour it in the boy’s mouth ( hmmm if God wants to humiliate you, he takes your mind from the obvious) the queen was so desperate to hurt the child that she forgot harm might come to her. She press his little mouth so she can plush it down his throat. Immediately thunder struck her down making her to lose her sight, she let the poison dropped on the floor.

Her lies made the gods so angry and they struck her hard, she fell on the floor holding her chest and begging not to be killed. The guard drop the charm he saw with her closer to her body.
QUEEN
I was the one that killed the king my husband.. His goodness was too much.. But that wasn’t the only reason why I killed him..I over heard the elders in one of their meeting asking my husband to marry another wife who will born him more children since I could not give birth again.. At first he refuse but later on he accepted to marry another wife..I felt betrayed so I killed him
Everyone gave their own different expression, the prince stopped himself from crying.
QUEEN
I wanted to kill this child right from when he was still in the womb but failed… I decided to do it myself that’s why I end up like this.
PRINCE BOB
You deserve nothing more than death.
RUTH
Why did you hate me so much, was it my agreement with the gods to be poor? How is it my fault that I was born poor?
QUEEN
