“I don’t know what really happened but I was enraged and nearly wiped out the entire universe. So I left my home to dwell among mortals for the time being. Actually to be away from my father till he becomes calm. Within that time frame, I was forgotten and no one ever remembered me. They only remember my brothers. I roamed for so many years, so many years that I forgot who I was. Well that was until I met you” Ebuka said as he stares at his Alaolisa.
“So what happened after that?”
“Well, we fell in love and got married but you decided to live with the mortals for a while. Your mother granted you your wish but with a prize that you would not remember who you were once. I decided to go down with you to look after you and protect you from harm” Ebuka said as he concluded his story.
“I don’t know what to say Ebuka! This is too much for me” Ogbanje said suddenly.
“I know that Alaolisa, but you will come to embrace it with time” Ebuka replied. He thought as he had opened up, Ogbanje would have told him by now that she wanted some space from him. But he was surprised when Ogbanje did non. She seemed okay with it.
“Was Alaolisa the name I bear in my previous life?” Ogbanje asked.
“Yes, but there are more”
“More? How did you mean?” Ogbanje asked flummoxed.
“You know I have two brothers, Njoku ji is the last son of my father and the second son, Ikenga. I am the first son of my father ChuckwuOlisa”
“What has that got to do with the question I just asked you?”
“A lot Ada, a lot! You see Ada mu, that young man that has been approaching you since these past few days…”
“The one who said he is from Umueze? The one whose name is Ikemefuna? What about him” Ogbanje interrupted him, eagerly.
Ebuka nodded his head in agreement to the questions asked.
“Yes Ikemefuna. That young man is not who he said he is” his head bowed.
“He is my brother, Ikenga. He had pick his interest on you and want to make you his queen by all cost” Ebuka unveiled the truth to Ogbanje.
“Ikemefuna is Ikenga? The Ikenga that we all served? Why would he pick his interest on me of all people?”
“That is what I don’t know Ada. There might be something he sees in you that made him to choose you and want you by all means” Ebuka explained.
“Are you trying to say he sees me as someone in memory of or what?”
“Maybe, or he likes you naturally. Either way, I am not going to let him have you. He will have to go through me to get you”
Ogbanje laughed out with her face beaming with smiles.
“I don’t like Ikemefuna or Ikenga- whatever he is, one bit. Right from day one, I had dislike that young man. I am only in love with you Ebuka and nothing and nobody can change my heart towards you”. Ogbanje assured him as she blushed.
Ebuka smiled when he heard those words.
“You are the only lady in my heart my Alaolisa”
Ogbanje laid her head on the shoulder blade of Ebuka and smiled at him.
A movement suddenly caught the attention of Ebuka.
He stood up and suddenly grabbed it.
It was a Scorpion.
Very black and huge one.
Ebuka held it on one hand and looked at it.
“This scorpion had been sent to turn you against me”.
Ogbanje said after a while.
“Hmm, then we have to send it back to sender” Ebuka said and brought the scorpion closer to his mouth. He whispered something slowly and freed it.
It moved swiftly and faster out of their sight going back to where it came out from.
“What did you say to it?” Ogbanje interrogated as she saw how the scorpion moved as quick as lightening. The scorpion was no where in sight.
“Nothing much Ada. I only told the scorpion to inflict its owner with pains but not death”
“I think I should be heading home now. My father might have returned and I don’t want him to ask Adaku where I went. You know she would lie about where I was” Ogbanje said as she also stood up to face Ebuka.
“It’s okay my Ada. Wait let me arrange here So that I can escort you home”
“Don’t worry Ebuka, that won’t be necessary, you know I can protect myself and besides I know you’d watch over me” Ogbanje replied.
“Okay, I will visit you tomorrow” Ebuka promised.
“And I will be expecting you”. Ogbanje said and made to turn when Ebuka grabbed of one of her hands, halting her movement. He turned her to face him once again.
“How can I let you go just like that”
Ogbanje frowned in confusion. When she looked into his eyes once again, his expression was intense.
“I don’t get what you are saying…..”.
He suddenly drew her to him and covered her mouth with his in a hungry kiss.
She responded immediately. She found herself closing up her eyelids. His mouth was so warm, the caress of his lips soft than she could have imagined.
He tasted tentatively with his tongue, and Ogbanje opened her mouth with a low moan. Ebuka gently pulled Ogbanje closer, his hands encircle round ogbanje as she moaned in pleasure, pressing her soft body against his hard skin. Her hands roaming round the exposed skin of Ebuka.
They didn’t care they stood outside, not caring if they were seen by any villagers. What matters now was how they felt together. How they were both fit.
Ebuka slided one of his hands down to Ogbanje round butt, squeezing it and pressing it harder.
Ogbanje felt his hard erection hitching her laps.
Ebuka moan deeply and dispatched himself from Ogbanje when he couldn’t hold his breath anymore.
Ogbanje was breathless when Ebuka removed his mouth from hers
Placing his hands on her cheeks he smiled .
Ogbanje smiled at him also but averted her eyes to the sole of his feet.
“I am not in a haste Ada but I am not patient”. He moves closer to her again. depositing a quick kiss on her forehead as Ogbanje eyes fluttered close. Ebuka dispatched himself from her and move a few feets backwards. “You have to go home now Ada. Like I said I will see you tomorrow my Love. Take care my Alaolisa” Ebuka added as he stared at Ogbanje lustfully.
Ogbanje blushed as she waved at Ebuka and turned to go.
“Take care also my Love. Can’t wait to see you tomorrow” Ogbanje quickly left not daring to look back as she knew that Ebuka was watching her.
“You again”. Ogbanje said as she looked at Ikemefuna (Ikenga) who was standing in front of her.
She had been so engrossed with the kiss she and Ebuka had shared earlier. she hadn’t taken notice of Ikemefuna (Ikenga) standing and obstructing her path. Her body collided with his and she was about falling down when she felt strong hands holding her waist, keeping her from falling down.
The hands lifted her and she turned to thank whosoever that had prevented her fall when she saw Ikemefuna (Ikenga) was the one holding her waist.
She quickly moved away from him as if he had leprosy.
“Yes me. I saved you from falling down, the least you could do is to thank me” Ikemefuna (Ikenga) requested with pride.
“If I had known it was you I would have gladly make the ground so proud by my fall”
“And have injuries with your delicate skin. Mbanu- No” Ikemefuna (Ikenga) said smiling but stopped when his sharp nose caught something. Sniffing at Ogbanje he became angry .
“You flirts with that stupid boy Ada. He touched you didn’t he?” Ikemefuna (Ikenga) asked angrily.
“What sort of stupid question is that? Are you high or something? Who Are you to ask me such a question?” Ogbanje charged at Ikemefuna (Ikenga).
“Your future husband in fact your husband. This should be the last time I will see you go near that mere boy you called your lover. I am warning you, stay clear off from that boy or else, he won’t live to see the next Eke market day. Don’t push me to the wall Ada. You are mine, you will be mine and you are forever mine” Ikemefuna (Ikenga) warned.
Ogbanje laughed out loud as she clapped her hands in surprised.
“Ehm Ikemefuna, this should be the first and last time you would ever stop me to talk about this rubbish you just vomited from that stupid mouth of yours ever again. Try me again and you won’t like what I would do to you” Ogbanje lashed at Ikemefuna (Ikenga) furiously.
“You don’t know who you are talking too. Do not, I repeat, do not ever go close to that stupid boy again or he will face my wrath” Ikemefuna (Ikenga) said but suddenly smiled at Ada.
“How was your day Ada?” He added.
Ogbanje hissed and walked pass him pushing him in process as she walked by him.
Ikenga smiled looking at Ogbanje in a lustful way. Watching the movement of her backside.
“I must have you Ada by all cost. If I can’t have you then no one else can” Ikenga boasted, still smiling till he could no longer see Ogbanje shadow. And he vanished.
