Nike and Leja sat at one corner that night as they planned on how to deal with Remi.
“I wish her nothing but death…aah Leja you need to see what she did to me and iyami…that girl is so evil…I want her dead…
“I don’t want her dead but I really want her to regret ever choosing the prince over me, and she has the gut to paint it to my face…denying with everything she got that she wasn’t pregnant that is the bitter part, if the prince has not got her with a child I wouldn’t have worry much but now look…she said she will never be mine and I will make sure the prince will hate her with passion, if I know she will chose the prince over me I would have allow the prince to get drawn in the river where he went to swim one day and I have to rescue him…I would have just watch him sink to the bottomless pit…since I can’t have Remi he will not have her too…
“I have a plan Leja…you know we are in this together…so we have to work together and nail that fool…lay with me so that I can become pregnant and when I become pregnant you will make the prince to get drunk or get him sleeping for so long…I will ask iyami to give me one leaf that i will give you to place on the prince food…no we are not going to hurt the prince we can’t even hurt him…the gods may strike us because he is the heir to the throne… all I’m asking is to get the prince either into a deep sleep or get him drunk so that you will sneak me into his chamber and I will try and lay with him if is possible but if he refuse I will make him feel like he laid with me because he may not be able to remember…and you will back me up…and with that the prince may accept me as his bride and I will become the next queen of this land and I will reward you greatly…I will bear a son…your son, nobody will be aware of it except me and you, and that son will also become the next king the prince won’t know that is not his biological son but yours…and within the time I will be the queen you can also be having me in bed, I will sneak into you chamber because I will make sure you have a big chamber here and you can have me all you want…but I will greatly reward you and give you everything you want…there’s a way we can go about this and perfect our plans…if you have a better suggestion bring it on…let us discus it…no time to waste…
“Nike…aaah…you are a baddooo….how long have you being cooking this kind of plan…is just too much…I can’t get involve with that…what if the truth comes to light do you know what the kingdom will do to us…is very deadly let just suffer Remi small and let her be and we will all be…
“I’m not backing out of this…yes we will deal with her…I have a big plan for but I also want to be with the prince as she was, i want to feel the prince warm body and his caresses…I want to be the queen and I can not achieve that without your help, you have your secret safe with me and yours is even deadly because you are wishing the prince dead…you said you would have allowed him to get drawn in the river and die I will hold on to that if you refuse to help me achieve my purpose…we are in this together leja…no going back…lay with me…I’m giving you my body for one week and even more if you want…all I want is to be get pregnant and rub it on the prince so that he can make me his queen…you have no choice in this than to agree to this plan…we have to do this so that we can have a bright future together…I won’t tell your secret out is safe with me…
“I don’t trust you Nike…the last time you told me the same thing you end up telling Remi that I forcefully laid with you and it was you that came to me and you even promise to keep it a secret between us…
“I needed to bring it up so that she can flush the pregnancy after she told me…I did not meant to tell her but I was ready to do and say anything for her to take off that child but she still refuse…that was why I told the old fool but she was stiff necked in keeping the child…but now she will regret ever crossing me…are we together or not…we need to work as a team and not let anyone suspect us…
“hmmm…Nike…I fear for this…but I’m ready to suffer the prince for taking Remi from me…I hate him and I hate her even more…
“Yes…very good, that is what I’m talking about…hate them with passion…let hate drive you with force so that we will achieve our aim together….you will sneak me out in the night I need to go and collect something from iyami…she will be waiting for me close to the palace and I will return immediately after collecting it…you are the chief guard here you have to watch out intensively and not allow anyone to know when I leave and when I returns back.
Remi stayed inside the next day with the princess, she has had series of night mare and have to wake up early, she wondered what will happen now, the prince has not said anything or summon her, he has being quiet since yesterday and the silent was killing her, she wish the prince will let her know her fate so that she can face whatever befalls her, but no word from him till this morning
After doing all her morning duty she needed to make the princess hair.
as she was making the princess hair who kept talking about marriage and children with Tunde, Remi was not listening, her mind was far and occupied
“Remi, You seem troubled what is it…last night you were so restless in your dream…is there a problem and you seem to be growing bigger…well I just felt you are probably adding some weight but that is not my problem…you can add weight if you want what I’m concerned about is what is troubling you…
“Nothing my princess…just…having some personal problem…
“I do tell you my personal problems…why are you hiding yours…talk to me I will understand…I guess you don’t really have anybody you talk much to just like me…I don’t have much friends except very few that comes around once in a blue moon, you are likely the only maiden I disclose my problem to…so if anything bothers you should learn to talk to somebody in that way it will be less burdened because a problem shared is a problem solved…
“I’m…pre..pregnant…
The Princess quickly turned to look up at Remi who looked away in shame
“You mean you are pregnant…serious…are you sure of what you are saying…you are really pregnant for who?
“If I tell you will you believe me…I never meant for this to happen but it was a very expensive mistake and I’m stuck with it…I’m pregnant for the Prince…
The princess stood this time and opened her eyes wide, it sound so unbelievable to her, she sat back on the chair and looked up at Remi who bent her head…
“I believe you…don’t feel bad with my reaction…I know you can’t pull such expensive joke…but I believe you Remi because you have never given me reason to doubt you in anything…but is my brother aware….is he aware…this is very serious…Oba will be so angry with him except if he intend to marry you to cover for the shame…but is he aware…have you told him that he got you in with a child…
“I did but he didn’t believe me…he was angry…because Leja lied that the pregnancy was his but I have nothing to do with Leja, he was only trying to spite me because I turned down his proposal…
“maybe I should go and speak to my brother…he may listen to me…let us go to his ch
amber so that I will let him understand that the pregnancy is his…let’s pray that the gods grant us favor and he will agree because the prince can be difficult even to me his sister.
When the princess and Remi got to the prince chamber she gently tapped on the door and was later told the prince was not in his chamber
The princess and Remi went back to the chamber and asked the guard to let them know whenever the prince returns and just as Remi finish up the princess hair that afternoon the guard came to inform them that the prince was back, so Remi and the princess went over to see him
When the prince saw Remi with the princess as they both walked into his chamber and Remi stood close to the door with her head bent while the princess came to sit with him
“I have being getting unexpected visitations of recent…and I’m no more comfortable with it…to what do I owe this visit again…
“Remi told me what happened and I’m here to plead to you to accept her…she is a good maiden and have serve me well…the pregnancy is not for Leja but for you…don’t listen to what Leja has to say…he is only being pained because he can’t have her as he has wanted…
“princess…you don’t understand where this story is coming from and Is very confusing …I jut want to breath and I don’t really have time for this…she told me herself that I never touched her the night I suspected that something might have happened between us because I was drunk but, I pleaded to her to tell me the truth and she said nothing happened and I usually see her with Leja, I asked Leja about her and he said she is his woman…they are in a serious relationship…it was also confirmed by her sister Nike…so I serious don’t know how you want me to take up another man’s responsibility….if this all you came here for I don’t have time for this now…I have a meeting with the oba later this evening so return back to your chamber and stop getting involve in a matter like this…
The princess couldn’t say anything and have to obey her brother and return to her chamber, after sometime Remi came out and walk straight back to the prince she tapped and without waiting for a reply went right in and saw the prince changing up to leave
“What is all this….why are you here again…why can’t I have breathing space…
“I was saying the truth when I say the child I carry is yours and that Leja have nothing to do with me and was only ganging up with Nike to spite me…i have told you the real and only truth…
“so what can I call the part you also told me that nothing happened between us…was that truth or was it a lie…how dare you even come up with such thing just to blackmail me into settling with you, having another man’s child for me…is something wrong with you Remi…my mistake is ever picking interest in you but that also has changed ever since Leja told me about two of your love escaped…don’t come in here again talking about this and I will be taking this to Oba and I bet you that will not go down well…
“was I suppose to be scared…take it to Oba…tell everyone that I was trying to blackmail you with a child that is really yours..
The prince was surprise to hear Remi speak to him so bold and unafraid
“…I am not asking you to marry me or to take responsibility of this child…I and maami are capable of taking care of this baby…I just wanted you to know…I lied before because you can not even remember laying with me after that night…you broke me up, my mistake was not stopping you but now that the deed is done I have to carry this burden and I don’t care whatever the consequences maybe my prince, the fact is if you deny this child today never come for him or her tomorrow…you still have the time to believe me but if you chose not to believe that is your problem and not mine…I have told you the truth and nothing but the truth…trash it now but never you come claiming responsibility of my child in future…I thought you are a noble man and will accept a mistake when is done but here you are calling me a liar and believing everyone else over me…o daaa…no problem…the gods will judge this case and bear me witness…
Remi stormed out and left, leaving the prince standing and having something to think about.
Nike sneak out that night and return quickly after collecting whatever she went to collect from her mother, she came back on time with the help of Leja as they kept on with their plans.
