‘whats wrong?’ Maria asked.
‘nothing’ Susan said trying her best to cheer up.
‘are you sure?’
‘yes’
‘really?’
Susan sighed ‘you are really lucky Maria. You’ve got te best stepmum in the whole world. I have bad news for you’
‘what news?’
‘Dad is dating Ann again’
‘Ann? Which Ann? Your former stepmoter?’
Susan nodded ‘i dont know what to do. I dont want her to come back here. You know what Christian and i suffered when last….God help us’
Maria bit her lower lip ‘its okay, i understand. You just have to calm down and manage her like that. For your dad to go back to her shows that he truly loves her. You should let him be happy’
‘happy for where? She would not step feet into this house again oo. Thats why i want you to help me out. I dont want her to come back. She’s back and pretending like an angel now, helping me to do my laundry and that of Christian’s. She’s such a pretender’
‘how do you know she’s pretending?’
‘she’s wicked na dont you know?’
‘give her a chance’
‘what did you say?’
‘lets give her a benefit of doubt, maybe this time she’s for real’
‘abegee, make i hear word. Wait, na you dey talk this, no be you help me throway her from this house that time?’
‘that time na that time na. I’ve changed. See, we have no right whatsoever to deny our fathers happiness. No right, if they are in love with someone and wish to get married to te person, lets give them a chance. Its not easy to fall in love with someone and be separated from that person. Take me for example, i nearly separated them for nothing. They are seriously in love with each other, i feel their love and i really hope i feel that kind of love soon’
Susan drew back in surprise then coughed ‘abeg, when you become love doctor?’
Maria laughed ‘i’m just being realistic’
‘but seriously, are you for real?’
Maria nodded ‘it will be fine. Just let her stay okay’
‘what if she maltreats us?’
‘tell your dad’
‘and if my dad doesnt do anything about it or doesnt believe me?’
‘pray about it’
‘pray? Maria, when did you start preaching?’
‘look, Alice has taught me alot of things in just a few couple of days, even though she can be crazy once she’s angry, she’s equally a prayer warrior oo. She thought me how to kabash’
Susan laughed ‘mumu. Meanwhile, i saw Abby yesterday at the supermart after our school’
‘really? That animal. Seriously, i dont know what i did to that girl like seriously. I wanted to confide in her something that was very important but the fool messed up. She started raining insults on me, for no just reason’
‘hmm, we talked oo and we really spoke at length. Abby, do you know that her uncle is dead?’
‘JESUS CHRIST OF NAZARETH!!!! WHERE DID YOU HEAR THAT?’
Susan narrated everything Abby told her and Maria found herself pitying the poor girl who was now alone in the world.
‘hmm, i pity her. And she’s orphan’
‘speakung about that, she said she knows who her father is now even though he’s late’
‘eyaa’
‘and she said she has a stepbrother’
‘whats her plan now?’
‘she said tat she would be leaving for Enugu very soon. She said that before her uncle died, he gave her his parents number so she called them and they told her to come over. She’s leaving for Enugu immediately our exams are over. She said i should greet you oo’
‘eyaa, so Abby is leaving. Anyway, that girl don tire me sef though she’s really nice but sometimes, i dont understand her’
‘she has emaciated so much, if you see her, you would pity her. I asked how she was faring and she said that her maternal grandparents are sending her money on a weekly basis’
‘are they rich?’
‘she said they are well to do, comfortable’
‘nice’
‘she said something as well and it might break your heart’
