Multiple Abominations

Here was the family sitting on a set of brown chairs which looked exactly like a green leaf which turned dry during the harmattan season.

Each one of them had their arms either supporting their chin or folded gently on top of their chest. It was as if someone had died or the world was just about to end.

Nobody seems to have been interested to break the ice. The issue on ground now is what can be termed multiple taboos

. Things that can only be thought of with the mind but could never had been seen with the eyes. Not only where they now seeing it, they were all first hand witnesses of the happenings.

Mr.

finally broke the long silence. Mr Nnamdi is Helen's father. By virtue of him being the husband of Constance's elder sister, he was also like Constance's father.

Nobody was more appropriate to speak first in such a gathering.

"When you mum died then, you were just four. I could remember vividly that your sister had just been married to me then

. And as your eldest sister, she took up the responsibility of training you." Mr. Nnamdi said facing Constance

"I can also remember four years after you started staying with us, when Helen was born. It was such a joy to you that you sister who now happens to be your mum had given birth to a girl. I could still vividly see that smile that beamed through your face like you had just won a jackpot..."

Mr. Nnamdi was still speaking when Constance cut him short and said "Please sir, we all remember those stories, just go on with it, so we can all get out of here"

As she made these statements, Marvelous looked at the Father in such a way to suggest to him "You See what I have been telling you. No single character."

At her statement, Mr. Nnamdi shook his head in regret then continued.
