“Yes my dear” Mrs Godwin, Esther’s mother
replied Esther in the kitchen. She waited for
her to continue but Esther suddenly kept
quiet thinking how she will discuss her
love-life with her mother for the very first
“I thought you wanted to tell me
something” the mother persuaded.
“No, Mummy, i have forgotten what i
wanted to tell you” Esther replied without
looking at her mother who knew very well
that she was lying.
“Remember i told you that you can talk to
me about anything at anytime. I am your
mother” the mother said, yet Esther
remained quiet feeling her heartbeat, but
she suddenly suspended the okra which
she was cutting and look at her mother
who was still staring at her too.
“Mummy?” she began with a low voice and
swallowed a saliva feeling her heartbeat.
“Mummy, if someone you love wants to
travel abroad what will you do?”
“I will do nothing but feel bad” the mother
replied and got busy with her cooking pot
while Esther also resumed her work.
“Are you inlove?” the mother asked staring
at her with the corner of her eye, then
Esther nodded her head positively looking
at her in the same way too.
“Who’s the person?”
“Is Chester, Mummy”
“So, he wants to travel abroad”
“No, but his parents are forcing him to do
The mother kept quiet for a while and said,
“There is nothing you can do about it, you
only have to wish him success in all things.
If he loves you, he will surely come back for
you if truly he is meant for you, okay?”
“Okay, Thank you Mummy” they smiled.
“But remember to put God first in
everything. Keep yourself pure and keep
your relationship holy, i hope you know
what i mean”
“Yes, Mummy, thank you very much” Esther
replied feeling like she had been relieved
from a heavy burden.
Tochi joined Linda and Vivian under the
ornamental tree with a frowned face which
got them worried.
“Bia, o-girl, what is it?” Linda asked her.
“Is Kingsley! He will never allow me to rest”
“What has he done?” Vivian questioned.
“He presented a gift to me but i rejected it”
“Why would you reject it?”
“Why wouldn’t i? So that he will tie me
down with it, abi?”
“Come on girl, i have told you this before,
Kingsley loves you so much. Don’t be
surprise when Wisdom will come back here
and disappoint you..”
“Hey!” Linda interrupted her angrily. “What
type of nonsense advice is that?! So this is
what you have been feeding her with all
these while. Bia, Vivian, take your time oh!”
“But is true!”
“What is true? Abeg, stop discouraging this
girl!!” Linda turned to Tochi who was
looking confused. “Listen my dear, don’t
mind, Vivian, follow your heart and wait for
“But I’m so confused and scared” Tochi
replied bitterly feeling her eyes wet with
“Don’t be confuse dear..”
“But you can be scared” Vivian interrupted.
“Bia, won’t you shut up?!” Linda rebuked
her. Just then the bell rag and all went into
their classroom except Tochi who resumed
her duty with Kingsley. She couldn’t look at
him again or go near him. She always
made sure she stays few metres away
from him which Kingsley also noticed.
# THREE_DAYS_LATE R5;00pm
As Vivian had just finished calling Wisdom
which she had been doing, so as Chester
was on his way to Esther’s house. He
knocked then Esther opened.
“Good evening” she greeted without
“Are your parents around?”Chesterasked.
“No, come in”
Chester sat down looking woozy without
knowing how to start telling her that he
would be travelling but Esther noticed it
and said, “Don’t worry, you can go?”
“Go where?” Chester asked.
“Abroad. I know that’s what you want to
“How do you know?”
“It doesn’t matter”
They remained quiet staring at each other.
“I’m really sorry, my dad..”
“I said is okay” Esther interrupted him.
“Just promise me one thing” she added
and Chester waited to hear her out.
“Promise me you will not forget me and will
still come back for me”
“I promise you” Chester held her hand. “I
will never forget you” he added.
“Okay, i wish you safe journey and success
in all that you do”
“Thank you” they stared at each other
silently again trying to have their second
kiss but Chester’s phone rang then he
“Who’s this, please?” he asked the caller.
Hearing that, Chester glanced at Esther.
“How did you get my number?” he asked.
“It doesn’t matter, i am at home with your
parents but you are nowhere to be found.
Please, come back”
Chester cut the call immediately without
“Who was that?” Esther asked him.
“Hum.. A friend of my mum” he replied but
Esther kept quiet. He gradually kissed her
then stood up, he walked towards the door
with her gently, but turned just to see her
cleaning tears from her eyes.
“I will come back, okay?” he assured her
again holding her hands while Esther
nodded her head positively in tears.
“I will miss you, Chester” she said.
“I’ll miss you too” Chester replied and
