Total Love Episode 54
Daniel was in his room till 10:00pm. He stood up and went to the palace. The queen was still there watching the television set. “I’m off to church.” He uttered.
‘No one is going to church. As a matter of fact, how sure I’m I that you are going to church?’ The faced him.
“Where else will I go tonight. Tomorrow is January 1st, isn’t it good to receive fresh blessings before then?” He smiled.
‘Do you think I’m joking? Go and pair up with Ruth and start praying together in this house.’ She said.
“Not me.” He replied and walked into his room back.
Tony and the Akinolas got to church as early as possible for the service, as they entered, a guy who was to play the talking drum rushed and passed his side, the perfume he used was although much, so it diffused into the air.
Tony kept wondering about that smell, although, that’s how Ray smells but he still couldn’t remember the exact person with that scent. He entered into the church and kept on racking his brain so as to remember who exactly uses that pef.
Tony was already living together with his wife in their beautiful house in Ibadan. Mr Akinola really assisted him in various ways and he has been seeing many things he ought to remember but maybe due to the absence of people that can make him remember, he won’t.
He remembered when his wife told him she pregnant, something stroke his mind that he has heard something of that nature from someone but totally forgotten. God is great.
His wife also usually ask about the family he’s from, his friends and the likes but none of it could he remember, since he wasn’t close to people that can make him remember and things that can assist him aren’t done so often.
The six-cliques as usual met on the first day of the year for a get-together. Fredrick Charles was dressed in a black suite and a black pair of shoes, looking elegant. He entered into the relaxation center last. They started discussing with each person with a dish of food.
‘Me get gist for you guys oh.’ Fredrick uttered smiling at the quiet Peter.
‘Why are you now smiling at me. You better talk.’ Peter replied smiling.
“Both of you have started now. What is it that is hard now? Faith said eating his food continuously.
“FFO! Now, the issue is about the princess.” He paused.
“You don turn to home theatre wey dey pause! Fredrick talk!” He shouted.
They all laughed. “Okay, he wishes to be the King.” Peter laughed.
“KING?” Dammy repeated and laughed.
‘Don’t mind Peter. Its just that..’ He paused and continued smiling.
“It seems you all aren’t ready for this talk, let me bring up my topic…” Blessing was saying while he was interrupted by Fredrick.
‘Em.. Its that I want to date the princess.’ He concluded.
‘Ehn.. What did I just hear? This is serious, our fredrick loves a girl.’ Dammy laughed.
‘Hmmn.. That’s the reality sha.’ Fredrick replied.
Faith kept on eating, not bothering about what they were talking about. “Go and ask her out now. Its so easy…” Dammy smiled sipping from the cup.
‘Should I?’ He asked, turning and looking at them all.
“Sure now.” They echoed.
The princess and her friends were by the pool side holding their usual evening gists. The princess thought of bringing the issue of Daniel up between them and tap advice from them. “You see, this issue is getting worse. I don’t even know what to do.” The princess uttered.
‘What is the Queen doing about this?” Bibi asked.
“She said I should wait till we end our studies since we are all offering a four-year course.” She replied.
‘Its simple, we can deal with her personally.’ Rachael suggested.
‘Yes now. We can all do this, whatever we want, we must get.’ Stella added.
“Em.. What can we do?” The princess asked with concern.
‘I have a suggestion for her.’ Rachael quickly said.
‘Really?’ Princess moved closer.
They moved closer and started whispering to one another. “Let’s give this work to Agent Six.” Rachael uttered.
‘Who are they? And pouring acid on that girl, won’t be easy.’ The princess pitied.
‘Why won’t it? We’ll pay them off and they’ll get the job well done for us now.’ Rachel insisted.
‘That’s no problem, we will do it.. Anything for you my friend, it will be done.’ Stella uttered.
“Em.. I’m scared” the Princess was concerned looking scared facially.
Rachael took a slight rest and sighed. “Don’t you want?” She asked again.
‘Alright, it should be done.’ Princess concluded.
The traditionalists got to the palace with different kind of strange things, looking angry. They came to hold a meeting with the King and were very serious and determined that they won’t agree until the King hearkens to them.
The King was so scared by all what they brought to him to scare him, he was told about how his father ruled the Kingdom and other Kings, his own shouldn’t be a problem.
They were doing this while Daniel was with Darasimi talking about how the next session would be. They’d be resuming by January 7th back to the school, its been Dan that has been helping her in all what she needs.
Dan got a ping from the princess to come home immediately that the King was in a coma. He left immediately and on getting home met the princess and her friends gisting. He walked towards the pool angrily. “Don’t just tell me you were joking!” He said angrily.
‘Dan, don’t start all that. Where do you always go? Come and sit with us, let’s gist.’ Rachael replied smiling and bubbling the gum she was chewing.
“You these girls are bunch of fools, idiots! I was doing something important there, you just interrupted it!” He exclaimed.
‘Huh? Fools? Us?’ The princess stood up and walked towards him.
‘Don’t just move closer.. I don’t need to tell you this, I’m off.’ He uttered and walked out.
David got home after the hectic day, the farm work has turned him into another dimension, looking so tired and sick. He couldn’t condone the hot sun and walked home. He got to his room and met the door locked.
He wondered where his wife would have gone to. He walked to his living room and started hearing shouts from inside, as if some people are playing and shouting. He exclaimed his wife’s name and walked to the door.
Everything became quiet, he continued knocking on the door but no one could come out to respond to him. He sat by the door.
