BELIEVE : Episode 1 – 10

[the girl he never noticed]
settings; Nigeria?

The guards held me and made me stand well,I felt dejected. When will I stop causing trouble for Olamma?.
seems my heart is a trouble lover.
I hastily bowed for my princes…

“take her away” one of the twins said,the harsh prince.
“may you live long my prince”
the guards said, the other maidens hastily bowed but they won’t still stop drooling and making sed.uctive moves,especially Adanna.
I was taken away with a band tied on my wrist.
The quiet prince,the one whom I gave a cut didn’t speak,he walked away.
I don’t just know why I feel scared of the twins princes,have never feared anyone this way.
we reached the palace entrance,a cold shiveriness shook my body as a loud gasp escaped my mouth..
hmmmm it is my first time coming to the palace and it is sooooo beautiful exactly like the mansions that were told in fairy tales.
I saw pure diamonds first time in my life…
KING AZUKA THE SECOND was inscribed on top of the gate,I made sure i touched the gates as we moved in.
it was a mansion indeed.
There were different flowers,three separate huge mansions in the wide palace a very big area was decorated the inside was a bluish water,it was so pretty down there.I wish I could jump inside right away.
“miss stay well” one of the guards said…
oppps! did I forget I caused a scandal earlier???
even the god knows am stupid.

we approached the entrance door,the door was opened by a guard.The queen was even coming out.
I hastily went on my kneels with a bow,I wanted to touch the
queen feet that was adorned with bracelets but I reframed myself..
“your highness!
I said shyly,my eyes down.
there was a brief silence…..
“what have she done again?”, the queen finally spoke”.
my palms already became sweaty.So she knows me already.The guards bowed…
“isn’t this chief kelechi’s daughter?”, the queen asked.
“yes she is my lord.She created another scandal,she colided into the princes and soaked them with water.
Prince Lotanna also got injured by her broken pot” the guard explained.

? my son!
? my chidi!(my pillar)
? my mma(handsome)
? mypeaceful Lotanna….
? did his skin get infected…he just came back from the states!
the queen exaggerated, I felt bad as she speaks.
“take her away…out of my sight!
“lock her up in the outside prison…thank goodness the sun is out” the queen said in furry..
The guards took me up and dragged me along.After 30mins walk,we approached the prison yard.
The door opened, I hastily entered.

this sun….chimo what have I done?.
I bite my lips as I remembered I have not still eaten.I felt discomfort on one of my fingers.
hmmm I also got a wound but it’s little,the princes own was really huge.
How I wish I can meet him this cream I made for wounds,it will heal quickly.

Olamma’s p.o.v

“Nne am hungry!!!!!
I shouted while still checking my reflection on the mirror.
I cat walked sed.uctively and stared at my beauty…

Gosh Olamma why so pretty!!!!
you’re lucky Chai…. once the prince sees you….boom he will fall for you…
he is gonna fall for you so deeply!
no one would be able to control him,
he would forever drool over your brown skin that shine like diamonds,
everyday and night he will want to hold you,
he won’t wanna trade,you for anything but you must proove really hard to get!
my inner mind told me.

I smiled to myself as I picked the rarest waist bead in my treasure,it was given to me by a wealthy cocoa trader who came from a very far village.I would have accepted his proposal but I thought of my village princes….
rumors had it that they are extremely wealthy,they have hundreds of people working under them in the states…
most especially Lotanna,
rumors said he is brainy…he does more of brain works .
ohh my prince Lotanna,forever mine.

“what’s making mma smile like this?”, mother asked as she came in with covered dishes in two separate calabash.
I smiled faintly and sat like a queen
i uncovered the dishes,the aroma of the richly garnished ogbono soup filled everywhere.
“mother you’re a good cook..don’t sorry Adeife would be our maid once the prince marry me” I said as I took a meat from the ogbono soup,I threw it in my mouth.
my smiles fades away…instantly,I spilled it out.
My dad a respectable chief came in..

“nne what’s all this!!!! I shouted as I stood up.
“my ornament, ogini(what is it)”,
my dad quickly came to my side.
should I say my dad cherish me more than my mother,it was because of me he was made a chief,
if not for the gifts from my numerous admires, we won’t be this rich- that’s why he calls me ornament…

“Ogini????”, father sounded louder.
“this is nonsense, she cooked nonsense! I blurted out .
my dad moved closer and had a taste of the ogbono soup.
he spilled it out immediately.
my mom stood up with a frown.”the soup was very moderate” she said and had a taste of it,she spilled it out immediately.

“see your life,you can’t even cook a soup…you can’t take care of our most beautiful Olamma” my dad scorned and took me out.
“Kele!!!! my mom shouted but we already gone far.

He actually took me to the food seller store. People cleared way for me,I catwalked in all smile…
So good to be in control.

“I will pay for everything,just give her all what she wants.I love girls who are cr@zily set,when ever I see one like her,my head go de scatter scatter!! Arinze,the village drunkard said.
I took time in selecting all what I want,I ate in relishment.
? Luna! Luna!!!!
arinze started hailing me,my dad already left.
? Luna you’re the love of my life…
? anytime I look at you,
? my heart beat wilder wilder sooooo
he sang as he came close to me.
“let’s seal this friendship with a deep r0mance…I promise I won’t penetrate” he whispered.
he so much smell of liquor…
“it requires ego(money)” I said.
“you know I have money” he said.
I nodded and touch his chest…
I smiled.Arinze is actually the hardworking type just that he is a drunkard.
Night came……
I searched out around,it was night already.I haven’t even eaten anything. This hunger put me in trouble already,I know it will kill me last last.
The prison door opened.

“young maiden you’re free for today.Your punishment cintinues tomorrow.You are to come here very very early to sweep the palace and the palace way” the guard said.
he couldn’t even look into my face.
I held my ear as I nodded.
I ran out…..
everywhere in the palace was shining light,I passed the water was sooooo pretty..I admired a little bit and ran out.

I met Ngozi.The only maiden in deerah kingdom that shares secret with me..maybe because we are the same thing.
Am ugly with the most perfect shape,
she’s beautiful with the most worst shape…her legs are bent on each sides..
god is really great.
she also have a step mother,her step mother isn’t as wicked as mine.

“Ngozi how are you?”, I asked.
“I’m fine” she said.
She is in a hurry,am in a hurry.
we both ran as we talk.

“Tomorrow is princess Akuna’s is surely gonna be a blast” she said.
“that rude princess…anyways good for her,my congratulations to her”
I said.
“my step mother bought me new wrapper and beads” she said..
“I wish I were in your shoes” I said.
“I wish I have your shape” she replied.
“what’s the usefulness of my shape when am ugly” I said.
“do you believe you’re pretty…do nor BELIEVE in what others say…your name is Adeife meaning crown of love.Ife you’re pretty.Ife BELIEVE, BELIEVE IFE” she said.
I kept quiet as we ran.

“will you attend the party as a beautiful maiden- I will change your facials by applying some substances in your face….don’t worry you will change your name no one will recognize you in the party….
But– the substance only last for one hour…after one hour,your face will change to the way you are before…
