EPISODE 9
The holiday looks like a year to
me,my every day prayer was
that,days should move faster
than normal so that I can return
to school… Am really tired of
seing the one I love without
having the power to tell him that
I love him….l can’t disobey mum…I
can’t just hurt her…..I don’t want
to be the reason a buried matter
will be dig out of it grave,I don’t
want to become an intruder to
Yeseer’s family….
I Have prayed to Allah to
detached my heart from Yeseer
love but yet am still loving him
more…. Most time I found myself
really depressed.. But I need to
act strong bcus I wouldn’t let
mum notice anything…
It’s a Sunday, when everyone
was at home,including Alhaji…
I was cleaning the sitting room,
suddenly Yeseer came in and sat
on the three-seater sofa….
My heart skipped immediately I
saw him but I controlled it and
concentrate on what I was
doing….
When I turned to look at him… He
was seriously deep in thought…
Only Allah knows what he was
thinking….
But I pretended as if I didn’t care
and face what I was doing….
Sekinah voice distracted my
attention…..
Brother what’s the problem…. I
Have been here for few seconds
yet u didn’t notice… What’s really
wrong pls speak up… She
persuaded….
Yeseer replied her out of
anger…What the problem you
asked….. S-E-K-INah…..he stressed
the first part of the name with
tears rushing down his
cheek…then everyone one has
came out of their room bcus of
how he raised his voice….
I wanted to leave the venue but I
could not….
Sekinah was looking down with
her eyeball as red as palm oil…..
Sekinah u are not in the best
position to know my problem
….she is in the best position….. He
pointed at me and suddenly the
mopping stick I was holding fell,
then everybody eyes were on
me…..
I quickly took the mopping stick
and wanted to leave but Ummu
stopped me……
You…..what’s that your
name…..she asked then I said
Tekiyah in a shivering manner…..
You think u have caught a big
fish abi…..
You think u can come here to
seduce him pretending as if u
are cleaning……
See poor girl it can’t work…. He is
taken already and be very very
careful hence,hence,hence……I
know u wouldn’t want me to
complete my statement…. She
warned, shouting upon her
voice….
As for u ,she faced Yeseer. . .your
Father can’t go against my wish
not to talk of u……see boy,no
more force on u…….everything
has been made simple….. U have
just 2 options…. Marry Sekinah or
stay single through out ur
lifetime………Ajiah didn’t say
anything initially but Alhaji says
something that even hurt me
than what Ummu said …….
Son…..u have heard it all and
that’s the final…. Sekinah isn’t a
stranger to u….she is just like
your sister…she is very beautiful….
What do u want in women that is
not in her….if u marry her u can’t
have any problem…… And even if
u want to replace her with
someone it shouldn’t be a girl
low to your standard…. Not a
poor girl like this….. He concluded
pointing at me…….but then Ajiah
cut in…..
Abubakar don’t give me
that………plss don’t just bring
that….you had nothing when we
got married…. U were also once
poor…..despite the difference in
tribe and even country my dad
never hesitate giving me to u as
a wife…….u see enough is
enough…. Enough of making my
son sad when its comes to issue
of marriage…he is old enough to
make decisions…. Marriage can
be force but remember love can
never be force…..do you want
them to commit zina…….pls for
Allah sake allow this kids to select
by themselves…. Pls don’t let us
force them into a marriage
where we won’t live with them
forever.. She pleaded with a
crying tone…but Ummu hissed
and left ,Alhaji also left…. Sekinah
was already weeping…. I just
stood there shivering and I felt
as if the floor should open so I
could enter….
See kids….there is nothing hard
that Allah cannot solve…..just be
more prayerful…. I believed
everything is just tests on u…trust
your lord and he will grant u the
best……Ajiah advised and left
also…..immediately I rushed out….
On getting to our apartment,I
met Ummu coming from our
room…I already knew am in big
trouble…. I greeted her,but she
did not even respond……
I opened the door and bumped
at mum……
Tekiyah… U really want to block
my only means of earning…… But
before u do that I will find a
solution to your case…
Listen and listen good..
Henceforth all your chores
shouldn’t exceed the garden,I
must not see u in the main
building…. And if things continue
like this u will have to be
spending ur holiday at Ummu
Jamal’s place….. At least I was
doing my job perfectly before u
joined….mum concluded folding
her arms on her chest…then I
knew the trouble I had cause.,…
I must not move an inch,mum
will query me……there is now limit
to what I can do at home…..
One evening while I was playing
with my phone..Yeseer call
entered….I quickly picked it even
without Teslim I rushed every of
my words and told him to text
me instead of calling….then mum
entered….. I just pretended the
caller was Zeenat…. She wanted
to notice something strange but
when she heard Zeenat name
she didn’t say anything…..
Yeseer message entered….. “A
salamun aleikum dear..How have
u been…… Hope u have done ur
evening adhkar “….and he ended
the message with Teslim …….after
reading it my heart melted….that
smile came again but I hide it
this time,bcus of mum…..though I
didn’t reply the message but it
really made my day..,….
Alhamdulilahi.. I will soon return
to school….. It’s just two weeks to
our resumption…… That day, I
was inside when mum called my
name from outside to get her
recharge card from a shop down
the street….I almost got
there,when I saw Yeseer talking
to the shop owner….I switched
my way and went to another
place…. While I was coming back
,he was also going home,I felt
uncomfortable walking home
with him ..so I decided to turned
and let him go first,but he got my
idea and call my name….
Tekiyah… U can’t just continue to
pretend as if u don’t feel
anything for me….I really
understand everything going
on….just accept me and let’s face
our fears together…. Tekiyah pls
speak up…u are really hurting my
heart…..For Allah sake pls….. He
pleaded but I pretended as if any
of his words didn’t affect my
heart…but those words melted
my heart and at the same time
pumped tears into my eyes,but I
don’t want to shed the tears in
his present… So I was walking
very fast,he was actually
following me,I resisted every
form of eyes contact until I got to
the gate and he was behind me
though a little distance… Then I
faced him and called his
name,unconsciously something
else came out of my mouth……
I love you too….he was
shocked….. Then I continued……
.. But……tears started rolling then I
tried to clean it with my kimar
and move Inside but before I
knew it I almost fell,due to
blocked vision….. Yeseer was
almost near to help me when the
clap of Ummu made me
startled…….good…in fact very
good.
.I have been watching from the
balcony….. You this girl u have
really graduated to romance
level… She said…….
Subuhanalahi…. I said……we
weren’t doing anything ma,as u
can see ma,he is not even close
to me……I replied almost crying…..
Ohh u are telling me that I am
blind abi???she asked ……
No ma o,I can’t say that…I
replied…,.
See girl evil must be buried the
day it is sighted…….today not
tomorrow u and your mother
must leave this house……her loud
voice had already called Ajiah and
Ummy’s attention….. My mum
begged but she insisted on we
leaving… Ajiah couldn’t helped
even though Yeseer said he will
leave the house also…..
My mum didn’t say a word to me
…we were just packing our
belongings ,then we left….
On getting to the junction we
met Yeseer beside his car….he
told us to come inside so he
could drive us to a house Ajiah
has already arranged for us…but
my mum refused….I pleaded to
him to go home that I will inform
him on our whereabouts….
Even though I knew that mum
silence indicate trouble….but I
can’t still help myself ignoring
Yeseer…..
To be continue In Shah Allah..
