Molero pe owalalafia (hope you are fine)
“I’m fine my prince…
“Kilo sele lale ana…(what happened last night?)
“Kosi omooba (nothing prince)
“Don’t be afraid Remi…tell me what happened…
“You were drunk last night… and…you… you vomited…and.. nothing again happened…
“Oh by the gods…Remi, you are stuttering stop it, what really happened…I knew I was drunk last night… I remember I asked you to take me to my chamber and you did, i got drunk because i… really wanted to express my feeling for you which i have been wanting to do for a very long time…I know I must have said all that and even what I don’t suppose to say or do as a royalty…but that’s not the point, my worries now is that I saw a blood stain on my trouser…I… have not being able to Leave this chamber since morning… I’m worried sick… thinking I might have done something stupid…Remi, mabinu bimo base o, molero pe kosi wahala, I’m sorry if I hurt you but I just hope there’s no problem…
“Kosi wahala omooba, mo wa lafia (no problem my prince, I’m fine)
“No, you are not, The blood…how come..oh by the gods, Remi, wahala wa topoju fun…did I…I mean did I..uhmmm… did I forcefully lay with you…did I make love to you… this is crazy…I don’t know why I can’t remember anything else after I came into the chamber…I felt like I did something wrong to you…my conscience is not at peace and when I saw the blood stain my worries doubled up…I can’t remember Remi, I can’t…is as if the gods wipe off my memory of last night but my conscience is troubled…help me, tell me everything…
Remi was quiet not knowing what to say, how do she tell the prince that he defiled her last night when he can not even remember doing that, he took her virginity without even knowing it and she did not fight hard enough to stop him, she lay there as if she was glued or being remoted it was after the deed was done she knew that she was in serious trouble, letting the prince know about last night may put him into trouble with the oba, because Leja May testify that the prince raped her when he was drunk, Leja is ready to do anything to hurt the prince if he finds out that the prince defiled her, it will be better to keep quiet and not bring more trouble to herself and maybe the prince…
“Remi, ejoo damilohun (Remi, please answer me)
“My prince, such did not happen… you were drunk and slept off immediately you came into your chamber, the blood is probably when I stumbled and fell down, your vomit slipped my feet off and I fell down and sustained a little wound on my thigh, so…so… while I was trying to help you… the blood stained your trouser…
The prince moved closer to Remi but she stepped away from him. He breathed deeply as he kept on looking at her
“Am sorry Remi…so sorry, can… can I see the wound…is it much…I have Ori here…I can use it on your thigh…so that it will heal faster…
“I can’t show you my thighs… that’s not right my prince…
“Hmm…I deeply cares about you Remi, I do, I’m not trying to take advantage of you being a maiden, I deeply care so much about you, and I feel terrible, I’m ashamed of myself…to have messed up the way I did last night in front of you, making you to sustain injury, hmmm…I hate myself for that…Remi look up at me…I can speak to Oba, my father about yo…
“We were getting ready for today’s party when Leja came to inform me that you sent for me…if I stay in here for too long it may raise an eye brows among the maidens, it will look suspicious, so please allow me to run ahead… there are things to be done out there but I assure you there’s nothing to worry about… last night was just like every other night, the only difference is that you drank too much and slept so early…please can I go now…
“Okay… okay… thank you for helping me to clean up my mess, I’m sorry about the injury you sustained on your thigh, I thank the gods that is not more than that, I thought I did something terrible…I wouldn’t have been able to forgive myself if I had taken advantage of you and forcefully defiled you…it would have been really terrible… I’m glad you are fine… despite I still have this ill feeling inside of me, but I’m fine knowing that what I thought didn’t happen…
Remi greeted him again before leaving.
She still need to talk to someone, Ope is not blood related to her as Nike was, she would have love to tell Ope instead of Nike
But no matter how much Nike disturb her to talk she kept on prosponding it, until Nike gave up, Remi wanted to tell her but something kept stopping her from doing that, at the end she did not say anything again.
The prince wasn’t so active like before, he spend most part of the day in his chamber or with the Oba, his father as they talk and the Oba was teaching him how to rule a kingdom, not to be biased in judging a case, how to be a good ruler to the people, a good husband to his future wife and father to the children that the gods will bless him with.
Nike tried everything for the prince to notice her but he was mostly too busy to notice anyone and sometimes ask Nike how Remi is doing, Nike always feel jealous anytime the prince specifically ask about Remi’s well being and that’s only when he comes visiting his mother in her chamber
The party was over and Remi did not feel the need to go and visit her grandmother or the need to talk to anybody again
She was fine and was trying to put what happened behind her as she continued her services, nobody knows what happened except her and it was better that way
It was after a month when her monthly flow cease to come she started panicking but decided to wait for another month, maybe by then it will come, she felt sick and throws up anytime she eats anything,
Remi thought it was a normal sickness and drank agbo for malaria, (herbal medicine for malaria) hoping to get relief but on the second month the flow still did not come.
Remi knew that she was doomed, she started praying and begging the gods not to allow her to be pregnant, she silently pleaded to the gods to send her monthly flow
When she couldn’t store all that she was going through within her any more, she decided to talk to someone.
Nike was the first person that came to her
mind as she ran to look for her
“Egba mi oo… Nike…ki oluwa ran mi lowo…(I’m in trouble..i need the help of the gods)
“Kilo sele gan (what happened)
“Aaaah, wahala wa topoju fum (am in serious trouble) Nike, I think I’m pregnant…
“Kini…ewoooo (what) for who…is it for Leja…
“Rara… omooba (no, the prince)
Nike opened her eyes in shock as she looked at Remi as if she just released a bomb, it sound unbelievable to her, she kept staring at Remi like a ghost
“You know that first day, during that seven days party, ehee, when I told you I have something I wanted to discuss…yes..so it was during then that it happened… the prince was drunk and doesn’t even know, he can’t remember laying with me that night, that is my main problem Nike, I’m doomed…kini Kim se bayi? (What should I do) I just needed to talk to someone that is close to me…
“You said the prince is not aware of it… that is a good thing, you will have to remove it, I will get agbo (herbal medicine) you will drink it and flush it out, this agbo is very strong and works like magic and there’s no complication, I ones laid with Leja, nobody knows about it too, I enticed him into doing it and he did, I wanted to have him to myself after then but he was very foolish, he didn’t stay for long, when I noticed that my monthly visitor did not come as usual…I quickly ran to iyami and she prepared agbo and I drank it, everything came down…so you have to take that agbo, is the prince that we are talking about here… the future king of this kingdom…he mustn’t hear of this…
“I can’t, I don’t know Nike, but I’m already two months gone, and I feel terrible already, commiting another sin upon this will be deadly…I feel that way…I can’t, the prince do not have to know, I will resign from this palace and go-to stay with my grandma…but I just don’t feel like flushing an innocent tiny seed growing… I’m the one that deserve to die for laying with the prince not this baby…I don’t know what to do but I don’t have the guts to hurt or flush the child…
“Is not yet a child Remi, is a bad blood that will endanger the prince and it needs to be flushed out…
“Are you more concerned about the prince or my life, Nike, I never planned for this to happen, believe me, I did not even understand how it all happened and I couldn’t stop him, I thought I was free and nobody will know because even the prince doesn’t know, but after a month and then another came I knew I was carrying the prince seed, I’m afraid, what I greatly fear is this but the gods will see me through… I can’t drink any agbo or anything just to flush this out…I can’t..
“Even the gods can’t help you because you seduced the prince and slept with a drunk man that doesn’t even know what he was doing, the gods won’t forgive you, is an abomination Remi, and you have to take it off just as I took Leja’s own off, it was just so Simple, you have to do it… nobody will know… trust me…
Remi stood up and walked away from Nike as the whole thing was almost tuning into a fight,
Nike was more concerned about the prince and insisted that she flush the pregnancy out but Remi couldn’t, she was confuse on what to do, she thought telling Nike will help but it worsen her situation, she need to see her grandmother.
Nike took permission from the Queen after the talk with Remi,
Nike lied that her mother was very sick and her permission was granted, she quickly Left to see her mother.
