Desmond didn’t bother about his daughter.
He stayed stocked in his room with Gold as they ate from the Sharwama and food they bought on the way.
Amanda made dinner for the her, Odeya and also I.k.
“Deya, I’ll be back OK. I’m going to give I.k his dinner.” Amanda said to Odeya.
Deya said nothing as she stared at her food without eating anything. Amanda walked to the door but on opening it, I.k was at the door.
“Oh I.k, I was bringing your dinner. Must be why you are here.” she said.
“Ah no no.. I want to see Oga.” I.k said.
Amanda looked at him.. “Why?”
“I wan tell am something. He dey for palour?” I.k asked.
“I don’t know.. It’s none of my business where ever he is. I can only answer anything that has to do with Odeya, apart from that. Don’t ask me anything!” Amanda snapped before realizing it.
When she did, she quickly put the plate of rice on I.k’s hands and cleared her throat.
I.k stared at her with confused eyes.
“Eh… He’s upstairs. He might not answer you. You should tell him whatever you have to tell him tomorrow..” Amanda said.
I.k sighed. “Oh chimm o. Na this night wey I wan see am. My pikin…”
“Your child? What’s wrong?” Amanda asked.
“She dey hospital and I suppose send my wife 15k to treat am. I no get shishi, na why I wan see Oga.” I.k explained.
Amanda felt sorry for him and worried about the child. “Oh.. It’s not possible that you will see him this night but make sure you tell him tomorrow morning.” she said.
I.k sighed..”Eh.. I know… Na that girl. If say she no follow am. I dey sure say he for dey watch Television now and I for see am.. That girl, I no like am at all at all.”
“I’m going in. Goodnight.” Amanda said, went back in and closed the door before he says more.
I.k sighed then turned towards his quarter. “Just like that, Oga don dey bring woman come home. Hmm I no care at all o but why e go be this night when I wan tell am my problem. Mtcheww..” then he remembered something… “…but e be like Say Amanda dey vex. She come talk talk talk for one simple question wey. I ask. Oga dey palour? She just blow like banga. Nawa ooo. Make I eat first. God dey.” he started whistling a song as he entered his quarter.
Amanda saw that Odeya haven’t tasted her meal. She sat beside her. “Deya, you haven’t taken a spoon of your food. Aren’t you hungry?”
“I lost my appetite. Can you make golden morn instead? I hate the smell of the rice.” she said.
“I’d like to take Golden Morn with a lot of milk.” she said.
“You sure you gonna drink it?” Amanda asked.
“Yeah..” Deya said.
“Alright, I’ll be back.” Amanda said and carried the plate of untouched rice to the kitchen.
She poured it back into the pot and dropped the dirty plate in the sink. She took out Golden Morn pack from the fridge, poured it into one of Odeya’s plates, added water and lot of milk, took spoon and carried it back to the dinning table.
“Here it is.” she said as she dropped it in front of Odeya. “Eat up so you can go to bed.”
Odeya picked the spoon, took the first spoon, second, third and dropped the spoon.
“I’m full.” she said.
“Of course you are not. It’s fine. I will feed you.” Amanda said, and took to feed her.
Odeya turned her face away. “I said that I’m filled up”
Amanda sighed and dropped the Golden Morn.
Deya turned to her with tearful eyes.
“I’ll make you my best friend, I will never be sassy to you. I will be the nicest person on earth.. Whatever you want me to do I’m gonna do it.. Just do this for me.” she said.
“Do what for you Deya?” Amanda asked.
Is it about bringing her dad and mom together again?
“Make that lady leave tomorrow and never come here again.” Odeya said.
Amanda sighed. “Deya, you might be only five but you are much smart and should know that there’s no way I can be able to do this. How do you want me to do this, it’s not possible. But I assure you that soon, she’s gonna leave and never come back. This is not her place at all. She doesn’t belong here.”
Odeya shook her head. “If you wanna see me happy.. If you really care about how I feel, then do it.. Make her leave forever.”
Amanda sighed again. “You give me impossible tasks Deya, first was bringing your dad and mom together, now making your dad’s girlfriend to leave. These are impossible missions that I don’t even know how to start.” she said.
“But you gotta do them. You wanted me to be a good girl. You wanted me to stop being sassy and be an extrovert who’s friends with a lot of people. I’m willing to be all that if you do this for me.” Deya said.
Amanda exhaled. “But you are already all that. You’ve stopped being sassy, you are now friends with your classmates and you’ve always being a good girl.” Amanda said.
“I wanna be more than that. I want to be more than good… I want to e friends with others and not just my classmates. I’m willing to become anything you want it you do this for me.” Odeya said.
Amanda took her hands in hers.
“Deya, I don’t want to lie to you. I will keep telling you the truth, I can’t do any of these which you ask of me. I’m sorry. I promise to be here for you, anytime, any day but I’m not some magician or a sorceress to make this work.”
Odeya started crying.
Amanda pulled her chair closer and cuddled her.
“It’s going to be okay, you hear?” Amanda said and began singing Odeya’s favourite poems.
????What makes the flowers???? so pretty….
How does it cheer up your day??
I think the flower is most beautiful..
When it is given away…
I have the colors of yellow and blue,
purple and green, red and white too..
The prettiest flowers that I’ve never seen..
I want to share them with you…
Who sat and watched my infant head
When sleeping on my cradle bed
And tears of sweet affection shed.. My mother
After a while, Amanda realized that Odeya had fallen asleep while being cuddled by her. She smiled and carried her upstairs to her room.. Laid her on the bed and covered her well.
“Good night Deya.” she said, before turning off the lights and walking out and closing the door. The next room was Desmond’s. Amanda halted when she got to the door.
She felt like breaking in there and kicking the idiot out, including slapping Desmond so hard for ill treating his daughter tonight and ignoring her but there was nothing she could do. She headed back downstairs. Ate, cleaned up the kitchen and there after, turned on the TV to watch movies.
She didn’t want to go upstairs and end up thinking too much.
She got engrossed in the seasonal movie, that it got to past twelve and she was still watching it without even feeling a bit of sleep in her eyes.
“Once it clocks one, I’ll put it off.” she told herself.
Then suddenly, she felt a sound at the staircase. She quickly turned to see and it was the girl.. Did she say her name was Gold or what actually?
Amanda doesn’t even care to know her name.
She wore a transparent white nightie that barely covered her thighs. Her cleavage were too displayed and Amanda could see her boobs and everything there to see from the transparent night gown. Her light skin matched so perfectly to the night gown she wore.
For a moment, Amanda got envious of her light skin. She was pretty sure that she has more curves and boobs than Gold but the light skin and the beautiful face. She knew Gold topped her in that two.
‘Men love fair women. There’s no way I could compare myself to her. She’s elegant and classic. ‘ Amanda thought within as she kept staring at her until she came down the stairs.
‘But… Why do she have to wear something like this? Must she? She look like a total slut in it.’ Amanda hissed.
“What’s with the stare? I might fall with such a stare from you.” Gold asked once she close to where Amanda sat.
She was going to get water. It has been so much fun in the room, alone with Desmond.
Such a sweet catch..
Amanda quickly looked away when Gold said that… ‘Why did I even look?’
Gold chuckled and made some annoying sounds as she headed to the kitchen.
As Amanda picked the remote to back forward the movie, Gold halted and came back.
“Oh I forgot that we have a maid here..” Gold said with a smug smile.
Amanda played the movie and listened.
“..Maid, get me two bottle water and two water glass. Be fast about it.” Gold ordered then sat down on a single seat close to the staircase and crossed her legs.
Amanda scoffed and ignored her, acting like she didn’t hear anything. Gold was behind her so she couldn’t see her either.
“Oh yes, this is where I was.” she said, referring to the movie.
Gold narrowed her eyes at the person she had ordered.
“Hey! Are you deaf!?” She hurled and stood up.
Amanda decided to answer her but without turning. “I’m sorry if you mistook me for the maid you have in your house. In this house, i’m Odeya’s nanny. I only do things that has to do with Odeya. The kitchen is only but a few walk, the fridge isn’t locked either. Serve yourself.”
Gold raised her brows, astonished and enraged.
“What? Did you just open your mouth to say that to me? Do you realize who you are talking to? Are you nuts?” She walked to Amanda, standing in front of her, blocking her from seeing the television.
“I don’t know what you are talking about.. I only told you my work here. Please I’d like you to move a bit away from the television.” Amanda said.
Gold laughed.. “Oh my God.. I can’t believe this dirty thing speaking so mannerless to me.”
Amanda looked at her and their eyes met.. Both eyes were furious.
“You might be Mr Desmond’s girlfriend but please, I repeat again, please, I won’t stand you insult me.” Amanda said.
Gold walked closer. “What will you do, dirty thing? What can you do than do your job and get your salary? Isn’t that what you are here to do?”
Amanda stood up and looked straight into Gold’s eyes. “Yes that is what I am here to do but if you make me go beyond that, you won’t find it funny.”
“And I ask, what can you do?” Gold asked.
“Actions speak better than words.” Amanda said and tried to walk out but Gold grabbed her by the arm and the next thing Amanda felt on her cheek was a hot slap.
Gold smirked at her “I just did that action, now what can you do?”
Amanda placed her palm on her burning cheek and stared monstrously at Gold. Her teeth clenched in flaming anger and all she could think of was giving Gold a double of what she just did…
Gold laughed when Amanda just stood right there like a statue staring at her with her palm on the cheek she just gave a slap.
“You see… There’s nothing you can do. This is a warning nanny or whatever you call yourself. The next time you try this, you won’t only get a hotter slap but an instant quit letter. Fool!” Gold spatted and dashed towards the kitchen.
“Gosh I can’t take this.. I thought I was only going to teach that little thing called Odeya some manners without knowing that there’s another bastard in this house. No wahala. I go tell una say na me get this place now. Bunch of idiots.” Gold ranted.
Amanda was still standing right at the spot she stood, with her palm on her cheek…
‘What happened to me? Why couldn’t I slap her back? Why couldn’t I defend myself? I could have took out one of her teeth but what held me back?’ Amanda wondered.
She removed her palm from her cheek and looked at it. A tear dropped on her palm.
She gasped and touched her eyes. There were wet. Is she crying?
“What’s wrong with my eyes? Why are they wet? I’m I an idiot? Am I five years old to get teary because of this? I can’t believe myself. I can’t really believe myself?”
She quickly wiped the tears when she heard footsteps coming. It was Gold.
She sat back on the couch and Gold passed with a tray of bottle waters and two water glass.
She soon got to the corridor, and entered Desmond’s room.
Desmond was lying on the bed, making use of his tablet.
“What took you quite long baby?” he asked.
“Uhm.. I’m sorry honey, it’s your daughter’s nanny.” Gold said as she placed the tray on a stool and poured the water in the glasses.
“What? What happened?” Desmond asked.
“It’s nothing to worry about..” Gold said and handed him a glass. He took it. “Thanks baby. Are you sure it’s nothing to worry about?”
Gold smiled. “Yeah.. I think she was only worried about Odeya..”
“It’s okay. I will see her in the morning.” Desmond said and drank the water.
Gold did a lopsided smile.
Amanda turned off the television and headed upstairs.. She got to Desmond’s door and touched her cheek.
“I’m going to make you regret this. Whoever you are. You will regret lifting your hand at Chimamanda.” she breathed then passed to Odeya’s room. She opened the door and breathed out when she saw her sleeping peacefully. She closed the door back and entered her own room which is opposite.
As she laid on the bed and tapped on her phone, she saw fifteen missed calls, seven from her mom and eight from Ekene..
“Mama, you called, I hope it’s not to start marriage talks. I will call you tomorrow.” Amanda said before pulling the duvet over her body and closing her eyes to sleep.
That night, Amanda had a strange dream.
She saw Gold holding a remote..
It looked exactly like a TV remote and she was pressing on that remote..
It was like when someone is controlling a television but when Amanda looked to see the TV Gold was controlling, she saw Desmond instead.
Gold was controlling Desmond instead of a TV.
