Read Story: SEASON 1 EPISODE 27
Early the next morning , he hurriedly brushed his teeth , took his bath and left the house ..
It was still a little bit dark outside when he reached her house..
And oh goodness!..
It was drizzling slightly creating a foggy atmosphere..
He rubbed his palms together to warm his body a little..
It was really a cold morning..
He stayed awhile in his car, wondering whether to go in or not but on a second thought, he opened his car door and trotted towards the door..
He knocked repeatedly without any response..
Maybe they’re still asleep , he turned to go but the door creaked open halting him instantly..
” who’s there?”
Nma’s sleepy voice cooed through his head ..
The smiles on his face was so adorable..
He went closer and hugged her..
” Good morning sweetheart ”
He whispered not making any effort to disengage the hug feeling the warmt of her body..
She pushed him off gently..
” what are you doing here?..
My mother is still around and you won’t find it funny if she meets you here..”
She whispered ..
” have you forgotten?..
I promised to take you to my family today..
Am not even scared of your mother or anybody..”
He said stubbornly..
” just leave okay?..
I will come and see you later”
She said persuasively pushing him gently..
” I can’t believe you’re pushing me away..
Am your boyfriend for crying out loud..
Not even a good morning kiss and you want me to leave empty handed..
No way ..
It ain’t gonna happen ”
He said with an eye roll..
” but its early and… ”
” chidinma are you selling land there?..
What’s taking you so long to open the door?..
And by the way who are you talking with?”
Her mother’s shilling voice interrupted her ..
” you see what am talking about..
She’s awake already ..
I will see you later”
She hushed and proceeded to close the door but he brushed past her and entered inside the house to see Mama having her breakfast..
This early morning..
Seeing him, mama rose on her feet instantly..
” Good morning mommy ”
He greeted humbly and she was moved but maintained a stern face..
” save your greetings young man..
What brought you to my house this early morning ?”
” mommy I know that you’re still angry with me and you have every right to be..
What I did was wrong , you trusted me so much but I took it for granted..
Am not asking you to forgive me cos I know that you won’t do such either..
What am asking you to do for me , is for you to give me a second chance..
To correct my mistakes.. ”
He went down on his knees..
” please mommy..
Give a chance not as the mother of my girlfriend but as my own mother..
Am sorry mom”
He pleaded and mama’s heart melted like butter ..
She went towards him , pulled him up and embraced him..
” I never had a son but today I have found a thousand sons in you..
Am sorry for being too hard on you..
You’re a good boy and am proud of the father that raised you ”
She said ..
Nma couldn’t help her tears..
Her mother is one in a million..
Always acting tough outside but such a jelly inside..
” thanks mother..
Can I ask for a favour?”
” of course my son..”
” I want to take Nma to meet my family today..
Please permit me to take her and I promise to bring her back in the evening..
Please mother ”
You don’t have to beg me okay..
She’s all yours but be careful around her..
She’s all I’ve got after the death of my husband..
Handle her with care..
I don’t want to hear stories again else I won’t hesitate to break your head”
She warned Daniel let out a soft laughter..
” trust me mother..
I won’t repeat such mistake again..”
He said with smiles and Mama couldn’t help her smile too..
” And by the way, you’re becoming more handsome..
This obodo oyibo (abroad) really suits you o..”
” I will be on my way now..
Chidinma come here osiso (fast)..”
” yes mother..”
Nma answered as she walked towards her mother..
” lock the doors when you’re leaving..
And get something for Daniel to eat..
She announced heading towards the door..
” what do you want to eat?..
Why am I even asking..
Not that you would eat anything anyways ”
She said sarcastically..
” well I would love to taste your lips ”
He smirked as he pulled her closer by the waist..
“Don’t be silly..
My mom is still around..” And besides it is wrong to embarrass on that now
Her voice came out in whisper as she stared into his eyes melting away..
” she’s gone already..
And is there anything wrong in kissing my girlfriend? ”
He said softly leaning closer till their nose touched..
His minty breathes fanning her nose..
” but I still don’t want it yet”
Daniel stopped trying and after Chidinma was with whatever she was supposed to do in the house, they left for his place
They were already having breakfast when they arrived..
” Daniel where went you this morning? ”
His Father’s husky voice nearly pierced his ear drums..
” I brought someone..
Chidinma come and meet my family ”
He said a little bit louder and all eyes turned towards the door to see the most beautiful creature walking shyly towards them..
Esther’s jaw dropped..
She couldn’t believe that such beauty still exists..
Or did she went for plastic surgery?…
” Good morning everyone “.
She greeted quietly..
Chief Okoye couldn’t help but admire the angel before him..
He didn’t blame his son either..
Any man in his right senses could do anything to keep a rare gem like her…
