Read Story: SEASON 1 EPISODE 39
Nti still could not believe what she was hearing from little Tom. Even Amara found it hard to believe that she has been with Ukeh’s sister all along.
“Are you trying to tell me that my brother is here?” She asked again.
“Don’t worry, he will be here soon with your husband”
Nti was shocked. She was surprised how little Tom knew of her husband and so she became anxious , she couldn’t wait to see them. And just as she was waiting to see them, she heard the sound of the horse coming.
She raised her head to see and she couldn’t believe her eyes. Indeed it was her brother Ukeh and her husband Kelvin.
“Huh” she exclaimed as tears fell from her eyes. Ukeh didn’t wait for the horse to stop as he jumped down and ran towards Nti. He gave her a long embrace and wept like a baby.
“Thank you Jesus” he cried. After which he turned and gave Amara a long hug. Kelvin could not contain his joy.
“My love, I thought I would never see you again. He hugged her tight that she couldn’t push him away” it was a sober moment as they kept crying in each other arms.
“Arrrrghhhhhhh” Nti screamed and they all turned and looked at her.
“What is it ?” Kelvin asked, “what is wrong?” Ukeh asked.
“I think the baby is coming”
Kelvin and Ukeh turned and looked at themselves.
“What do we do?” Kelvin asked.
“I got this” Amara replied. And asked them to leave. The three men stood aside and held hands and prayed for Nti.
And 15minutes later, she gave birth to a bouncing baby boy. Amara held the child and gave it to Nti. His skin was white.
Nti held her son and tears fell from her eyes.
“My son, you are a free man. You were born free”
Ukeh and the men came and saw the baby. Kelvin could not contain his joy as he danced round singing praises to God. He carried his son and he fell in love with him. After staring lovingly at him for a while he handed him over to Ukeh.
“Please name him. I want my son to be named by his uncle.” Kelvin said.
One look at the baby and Ukeh’s heart was filled with love. He held him close and prayed for him and finally names him “Victory”
Ukeh: On the day you were born, we got victory over slavery. May the name of the Lord be praised.
Nti: What next for us? Where do we go from here?
“Tomorrow all Africans have been asked to gather at the dock. They will be taken back to Africa” Little Tom replies
Ukeh smiled and raised his hands up to the sky and shouted in excitement.
“At last, we are going home, at last, thank you Jesus”
And they laughed and sang and praised the name of the Lord.
