"Give me high five, Chioma screamed and danced inside the room, ooooooh, Amy na, give me high five, u hit him hard, i mean sooo hard, i've never seen my brother like this, and no one has ever challenged him the way you did", Chioma blabbed, i stood looking at her, trying to understand all she's saying, i cleared my throat, "eeeeh, Chioma what are trying to say? "So u still dont get it,oya, just give me high five" she hit my hand immediately, "wonderful , mother needs to hear this" she said sitting down, "ooooh, Chioma pls i'm so sorry for shouting at your elder brother, he got me angry, he was so rude to me," i tried explaining all that happened, but Chioma wasnt paying attention, "Chioma, are you listening to me?she turned to face me," Amy i'm so happy, just forget everything that happened,pls help me pack my belongings, dad called mum, we shall be leaving in two days time, "that's good, just dont forget me when you get to Lagos, i replied," i wont be travelling abroad again, i want to here in Nigeria, i've begged daddy to bring you to Lagos, we can attend the same University, i would really love you being close to me, pls i hope you dont mind", why will i mind? I thought ght to myself, i've been asking God for an opportunity to leave the village, and here it comes, i was so happy within me but the thought of her brother made my happiness vanish, i cant stand that boy, he's so spoilt, but i need to leave the village,aah, my mother nko? Who will take care of her? What about my uncle? Who will cook for my mother, "
I was still in my thought when she coughed, her cough jerked me out of my thought," dont worry i'll take care of you, my mum will love it if you agree to coming with us to the city, she has spoken to your mum about it, and as for my brother and his girlfriend, just ignore them, you wont be seeing more of him because he's never at home," she said trying to make me smile, i smiled at her, "i wont leave the village until i gain admission, i'm yet to write my Jamb, once i'm done and i'm sure of my admission then i can move to the city,
For the meantime, i need to enroll in a computer class, and also attend lessn for my jamb,i told her," Do u know why i like you? "she asked me," i kept mute," i like you because of how you reason, take your time, dont rush, i'll be waiting, i'll resume school January at UNILAG, i know you've heard about the school, that's where we shall school, for now, i'll be lonely without you", she said trying to feign crying, i laughed at her, "see fine girl crying," i hugged her, "dont miss me so much, i don't want to cry," i consoled her, within these few days, Chioma and i have become fond of each other, i was so happy i met her,
She stood up immediately, "sweetheart, let's go out and have fresh air, are you not tired of staying indoor? Watching what u're not understanding," she was referring to the channel i was watching, ZEEworld, i've heard people talk about their good movies,my mother cant afford it so i only listen to my classmates talk about the series, Chioma was right, though the movie is interesting, i dont understand what the story is all about, "i'm tired of staying indoor, let's go out," i told her,she dragged me out of the room.
In the compound, she ordered for juice, we sat down chatting, "i'll visit my cousin this evening to know how far they have gone with their preparations for tomorrow, Chizzy will be sleeping over at their place, i'll go there this evening and return later in the night, then first thing tomorrow morning i'll leave for her place, mmmmmh, from our schedule, i doubt if we will make it next tomorrow to Lagos, "she said slightly hitting her head," what is it?, why are u hitting your head"? I asked in confusion,
"just see my life, i begged you to help me pack my things, and i" ve been talking and talking that i forgot, "she said," just packing? Oya, finish your juice let's go and pack, i need to mine too to return to my home, at least i'm now perfect", i told her, "hmmmmm, let mum hear you say that, she said she'll drop you, anytime she feels you're ok, understood?" i stared at her, "yes ma," i replied her, and we both laughed uncontrollably,"where's mum? "I asked her, she and your mum went to my uncle's house to help out with the arrangements," ooh, i forgot, I can't stay in this house alone tomorrow without you and mum, "i told her frowning," dont worry i wont be long, just stay in my room, the maids are there to help you out "she assured me, i shrugged, ook ooo, i would've loved to attend the occasion, i'm ok nowwww" she looked at me sheepishly, "abeg ooo, mum will just kill me, just relax ok? Oya let's go inside and pack my things," i followed her carrying my glass of juice, she was catwalking and i couldn't stop laughing.
I was laughing and wasnt looking when i popped into someone. My drink spilt all over me"OMG,i screamed and looked up only to see my enemy standing before me, Chy who heard me scream turned to see what happened
"What the hell?, God, are u also blind?cant you just watch your way? Soon mum will look for who to blame, guess this was how u weren't looking and fell into the pool, and they're blaming my girlfriend for it," Nelson blasted,i couldn't control anger anymore, he just tried to walk away when Chioma spoke"haba now, Nelson, simple sorry wont kill you, just say sorry "i didnt allow Chioma finish when i spoke up," bia nwoke m, are you mad?,i thought if you ever studied at all, not to think of studying abroad, if you know what is good for you, just stay away from me biko(please), next time you try this again, i swear, i'll beat you and your girlfriend up put together, just look at my body, next time, you or girlfriend might pour acid on me, i dont know where this hatred is from, is it my fault that i wasnt opportuned to be borne in the city or into a rich family like yours? Is it my fault that i grew up in the village"i was now fuming with anger, i was now pointing at him, he just stood looking at me with his mouth wide open, "dont ever in your life insult me again, and when you are done staring, remember to shut your mouth,"with that i stormed into the house.
" Nelson trust me on this, you didnt try at all, that girl is really angry with you, she never planned this, your action doesnt speak good of you," i heard Chioma telling him, "i'm not surprised you spoke like this,very soon, you'll start stinking of cassava just like the village girls, just look at how that village champion spoke to me, your elder brother, you're here defending her, you know what? All of you should just Bleep off, i need to chill out right now before i hit someone, what rubbish!!, just give your lousy friend chilling pill to take"with that he entered his car and zoomed off.
"Amy pls don't mind Nel, he's just not in a good mood today, don't pay attention to all he said,he's used to talking to people harshly," she tried calming me down, "Chy dont worry, i'm getting used to his rudeness," i told her faintly, i bathed immediately and changed into a simple gown Chioma gave me,i felt better, bia(come) let's pack your belongings, i told her, trying to calm myself.
We packed all that needed to be packed, i was already famished when we finished, we helped the maids prepare food before Chioma announced she was going to her uncle's house, Chy, let me accompany you to your uncle's house, since mum and Chizzy will be sleeping over there, we can spend sometime with them before returning", i told her, she ran to me and hugged me, i'm so happy i have you here with me, that is thoughtful of you,i'll get you some clothes to change into, while i shower
We left for her uncle's house before 6.30pm,when we got there, everyone was busy doing one thing or the other, we greeted eveyone and went to the backyard to search for aunty Amanda and my mum, where the women were cooking, i met my mum and my aunty chatting together with the bride's mother,"oh, my baby, why did you stress your self?, Chioma why did you drag her her? "my aunty asked touching my head," mummy i'm ok now, i was bored at home so i begged Chy to bring me here"i tried explaining to her, "sure" she asked again, i told her" yes, "all the bride's cousins were all around her, Chy was busy with her cousins, i sat down and was watching all that was happening, i closed my eyes and was imagining how my traditional marriage would be, i saw my mother and aunty Amanda busy directing everyone on what to do, everything seemed so perfect, my mother was so happy, my uncle's were all there helping out with the arrangements, i was still in my thoughts when i heard Chy called my name, "Amy!!!!," i was startled, i turned immediately, i didnt know when tears dropped from my eyes, "sweetie you're crying, dont start now ooooo, i know Nelson is not here, so tell me who's making you cry?" she asked, i just smiled and wiped away my tears.
Chioma wont understand what why i cried, i just want to make my mother proud by finishing my education and getting married to the man of my dream, i want to wipe away her tears, and i'm determined to do that, Chy having seen i'm not in the mood to talk returned to her cousins, Chizzy kept me company, we chatted about so many things, she promised to take enough pictures to show me when she returns, it was getting late, i went to see my mother to know how she's coping without me, "mama, how're you coping with house chores? I've begged aunty Amanda that i want to return home but she still thinks i need to rest," i told my mother, "nwa m(my daughter) don't worry, i'm managing, my prayer is for you to be fine, dont worry, your aunty will bring you back next tomorrow, i'll prepare your favorite food, it's getting late call Chy, you need to start going, we will sleep over, i'll return to the house early in the morning for a change of clothe, with that i bade my aunty and my mum good nite, we drove home in Chioma's car,.
We were so tired when we got home.

Re: To Hate And Love(story That Touches The Heart) By Adaobi Marianne by marianneada(f): 9:33pm On Mar 06
A car horn woke us up as early as 4.00am,i peeped through the window and saw Nelson coming out of his car with cigarette in his mouth, he was holding a drink in the other hand, he staggered inside the house, i couldn't sleep anymore, i knelt down and started my morning devotion.
Chioma woke up and prepared for the wedding, she packed the clothes she would use for the wedding inside her car, we had breakfast together and she left, i was so bored when she left, i made up my mind not to leave the room, i stayed there watching TV, when i'm tired i sleep, i continued with that till i heard voices downstairs, i was curious to know who were making such noise and blasting music, i tiptoed to downstairs and saw Nelson smoking away his life with his friends, "chai, i just pity this boy, i dont even know how he manages his father's business, i hate him with passion, everything about him is nothing to write home about" i thought to myself, they were all already dressed for the wedding, i watched them leave the house littering cigarettes everywhere, i just pitied my Amanda, i dont know why God is punishing her with this boy, when they left, i helped the maids clean everywhere before returning to my room, I just wish Kinsley wont grow up to be like his brother, talking about Kingsley, i'vent seen him since yesterday, i decided to ask Chy or Chizy when they returns, i went up to Chy's room to rest,i don't know why i lost apetite to eat anything, i stayed hungry till late at night,.
Chioma returned looking so beautiful in her aso ebi attire, the same with Chizzy"you girls are so beautiful, i like your styled, hope you took enough pictures "i asked them," Yes o, it was fun, thank God everything eneded well," Chizy said excitedly, they showed me their pix, and gisted about the wedding, before we all showered, ate and slept off.

*****Festive period is over, my aunty and her family have gone back to Lagos, i'"ve returned to my home, Nd is also back from her maternal home, i was so happy to have around, we have resumed our farm work, my mother needed to save enough for me, my life of luxury is over, i'"m back to my simple villge lifestyle, i enrolled in to a computer training school, i help my mother out when i don't have classes.
This afternoon is not different from others, harmatan breezing can still be felt, "Amaka nwa m oooo, (my child)",come and hear story, the Lord had done it again for me oooo," that's my mother calling me," i was peeling cassava at the backyard when she came calling, "mama let me wash my hands ," i replied her,i hurriedly washed my hands and went to meet her, "o gini kwa(what is it)," i asked,"nne, your uncle called me begging me to forgive him for all he said, he said he wont disturb us again, i dont know if he has plans or he has really changed, i still need to very careful of him", she said, "mmmmh, me too i'm shocked o, bit wait oo, are you sure aunty Amanda didnt report him to her husband, who in turn will report to the Igwe, you know how close the igwe and her husband are, i think the king called uncle Amobi and warned him to stay away from us,"i stated, "i think there's sense in what you said, i need to call Amanda and Be sure," she replied, "dats good, i would've called her if not that my phone has damaged, we will call her later in the day, let me finish what i'm doing and bathe, i know i'm smelling," i laughed "" let me rush to the woman that is owing me, i need the money to help me start up my new shop"she explained, my mother decided to use the money my aunty gave us to start up a small stall in the market. At least we need to sustain ourselves. I can still do farm works and get paid, then save for my university education, i dont want to be a burden to anyone, and i dont want to hope on anyone.

CHAPTER 5
"is there anybody home?, kpam, kpam," that's the courier guy calling on us, i recognized the voice immediately because he was the one that has been delivering messages from the city to the villagers, my heart skipped when i heard him knocking, i wasnt expecting any news from anyone, my aunty would' ve called my mum, if she has anything for us, "good afternoon sir, hope all is well?" i managed to ask him, "there's a parcel for you from Lagos, pls sign here," he repied, i signed without delay anf rushed inside to open the parcel, i wanted my mother to be around before opening the parcel, she has gone to the market to buy things for her small store, i kept the parcel in a safe place, i decided to rest a little, i was about dozing off when i woke up with a startle, i remembered my parcel, i rushed and tore it open forgetting my mother, lo and behold, my aunty has replaced my phone!!!Infinix note 2 "chaiii, God you're too much, is this how miracle works? Pls bless my aunty for me ooo," i said happily, there's money inside the parcel also, i guess it's for my mother, i kept the money in my mother's room, i checked my phone and found out its the same brand with my damaged phone, i didnt find it difficult to operate the phone since Chioma has taught me alot, there's also a new sim card in it, i was so excited, i wanted to start calling everyone immediately but i dont have any of their numbers, i decided to wait for my mother to collect aunty Amanda 's number from her Nokia torch phone,gbam, NEPA brought light immediately, trust village NEPA, they never disappoint, i charged my phone and relaxed with it playing Soda Crush, all thanks to Chioma.
My mother returned late at night, i served her supper and allowed her to rest before breaking the news to her, my mother danced and danced and danced, i showed the phone and the money, as i was her my phone, it rang, i dont know who was calling, i picked it and heard Chioma's voice, "my sweetheart, how're u doing? Hope you're not missing me much?, don't worry i've started making arrangements for you to join us in Lagos", she said happily, "Chy, i'm missing everyone o especially you and mummy Amanda," i replied her, "dont worry,dont miss us so much, my mother is hospitalized for now, but she's getting better, she instructed me to buy a new phone for you and send some cash to you, she said you should buy your jamb form with the money and give the rest to your mother to add to her business, dont forget to call me to help you in filling your jamb form, send my regards to your mother, pls don't tell her about my mother's sickness, take care of yourself, i need to take food to her now, they're expecting me in the hospital, bye"with that she cut the phone, "what's going on? She didnt even allow me talk before cutting the phone" , i thought to myself, my mother was already suspicious of her friend's sickness, she has been complaining of not reaching her, i put up a fake smile and told her all Chioma told me except the hospital part, she smiled"i was now thinking hard, "what is wrong with aunty Amanda, is it that serious?, God pls o, protect her for me, nothing should happen to her,.
That night i prayed so hard for aunty Amanda's health, i cried while i was praying, i dont know why i was so hurt in my spirit for aunty Amanda, i prayed for her family too. I decided to call Chioma in the morning to know the condition of her mother.

The sound of my phone woke me up in the morning, i picked it at the the second ring, "good morning," i answered so faintly, i didnt check the caller id, the voice made me knew it was Chioma, "Chy, how're u? How's everyone?", i asked her immediately, "we're all fine, mummy is getting better, though the doctor refused talking to us except dad, i'm really confused, my prayer is that she gets better fast", she told me almost crying, "it's well,just leave everything to God, she gisted about school, and all that has been happening to her in Lagos, we ended the call with the promise of calling back.
EIGHT MONTHS LATER
" mama, i'm done packing, i'll leave with the first bus tomorrow, i just pray i pass this examination" ,i told my mother, ND is now in a polytechnic studying, i'm still in the village waiting for my aptitude test, Chioma has assured me of my admission, she has really helped me, mummy Amanda is now hale and hearty, i was so happy that i'm finally leaving the village for Lagos, i've never travelled outside my state, Chioma 's cousin is taking me along with him to Lagos, i' ve been counting days, my mother couldn't stop her usual advise, she kept on praying for me, my bag is ready for Lagos, i couldnt sleep at night, i was just waiting for the first rooster crow. I woke up so early and got ready, Chy's Cousin came early and we left for Lagos.
We arrived Lagos late in the evening, we boarded a taxi to aunty Amanda's house, when we got to the house, i couldn't stop staring at the mansion, so this where i'll leave, the house is so magnificent, it' s bigger than the one in the village,only Chioma, aunty Amanda and their dad were around, i was so happy to see them, her dad was looking younger and fresh,Chioma was looking good too, but aunty Amanda wasn't looking good at all, the last time she spoke to my mum i noticed how fainting her voice was, "what is going on?, is aunty aunty Amanda suffering from any sickness?, is she dying slowly?, i couldnt bring my head together to know what was going on, i hid my mixed feelings, Chy took me her room to have a change of clothe and eat.
" Chioma i beg you in the name of God just tell me the truth, what is happening to mummy Amanda? Why is she looking so pale? Last i saw her, there was no sign of sickness, all of a sudden she was hospitalized, and now, look at how she's looking, my mother doesn't know her friend ia dying, she's dying and yet she's still bothered about about my mum and i, "i told her almost crying, Chioma kept her face to the floor, i went to her and continued," it's like you're hiding something from me, am i no longer wanted in this family? Ok, i nearly forgot, i"m just an outsider your family is trying to help, i was thinking we're one family but look........ "she didnt allow me to finish when she spoke up" yes, mum is dying, the doctor didnt tell me exactly what she's suffering from, he only told me to always make my mother happy, that it is all she needs right now, all she ever thinks is you! You! You! She said her happiness lies in you, she cant stop asking when you're coming, for the past months, today is first day she ever smiled, my dad has tried taking her on a vacation abroad but she refused, "she said tearfully, she walked close to me and held my hand," Chioma pls always promise me to help my mother recover, always make her happy, all my siblings are ignorant of her sickness, my dad sent them abroad, Nelson went back to London, for his masters degree, he'll be back any moment from now, at least he can handle the situation, as for Chioma and Kingsley, they would be over there till mum gets better, and i know she'll get better soon, it's just you and i to take care of mum, we shall be going to school from the house, till ahe recovers, pls sweetie, help my family, just be here and help my mum out, just always e there for her, since you're the only one that makes her smile, dont tell your mum about this, she begged me not to tell your her, "as she was talking, i ran and hugged her," i'll try and always make her happy, we shall join hands and pray for a quick recovery, pls stop crying, it's well"i consoled her. I wept the tears from Chy's eyes, and she smiled "enough of this, come and gist me on your experience as a JJC in Lagos, we gisted for long before going to aunty Amanda's room to give her food and her medicine, after that i called my mum to inform her that i arrived safely, we talked for a long, she kept on asking how i'm feeling, and how Lagos is, she asked after her friend and told her that she's ok,I faded her goodbye and slept like a new born baby, i guess it's beacuse of the journey, and the AC in the room helped me alot, though i later started shivering late in the night.

" mama, i'm done packing, i'll leave with the first bus tomorrow, i just pray i pass this examination" ,i told my mother, ND is now in a polytechnic studying, i'm still in the village waiting for my aptitude test, Chioma has assured me of my admission, she has really helped me, mummy Amanda is now hale and hearty, i was so happy that i'm finally leaving the village for Lagos, i've never travelled outside my state, Chioma 's cousin is taking me along with him to Lagos, i' ve been counting days, my mother couldn't stop her usual advise, she kept on praying for me, my bag is ready for Lagos, i couldnt sleep at night, i was just waiting for the first rooster crow. I woke up so early and got ready, Chy's Cousin came early and we left for Lagos.
We arrived Lagos late in the evening, we boarded a taxi to aunty Amanda's house, when we got to the house, i couldn't stop staring at the mansion, so this where i'll leave, the house is so magnificent, it' s bigger than the one in the village,only Chioma, aunty Amanda and their dad were around, i was so happy to see them, her dad was looking younger and fresh,Chioma was looking good too, but aunty Amanda wasn't looking good at all, the last time she spoke to my mum i noticed how fainting her voice was, "what is going on?, is aunty aunty Amanda suffering from any sickness?, is she dying slowly?, i couldnt bring my head together to know what was going on, i hid my mixed feelings, Chy took me her room to have a change of clothe and eat.
" Chioma i beg you in the name of God just tell me the truth, what is happening to mummy Amanda? Why is she looking so pale? Last i saw her, there was no sign of sickness, all of a sudden she was hospitalized, and now, look at how she's looking, my mother doesn't know her friend ia dying, she's dying and yet she's still bothered about about my mum and i, "i told her almost crying, Chioma kept her face to the floor, i went to her and continued," it's like you're hiding something from me, am i no longer wanted in this family? Ok, i nearly forgot, i"m just an outsider your family is trying to help, i was thinking we're one family but look........ "she didnt allow me to finish when she spoke up" yes, mum is dying, the doctor didnt tell me exactly what she's suffering from, he only told me to always make my mother happy, that it is all she needs right now, all she ever thinks is you! You! You! She said her happiness lies in you, she cant stop asking when you're coming, for the past months, today is first day she ever smiled, my dad has tried taking her on a vacation abroad but she refused, "she said tearfully, she walked close to me and held my hand," Chioma pls always promise me to help my mother recover, always make her happy, all my siblings are ignorant of her sickness, my dad sent them abroad, Nelson went back to London, for his masters degree, he'll be back any moment from now, at least he can handle the situation, as for Chioma and Kingsley, they would be over there till mum gets better, and i know she'll get better soon, it's just you and i to take care of mum, we shall be going to school from the house, till ahe recovers, pls sweetie, help my family, just be here and help my mum out, just always e there for her, since you're the only one that makes her smile, dont tell your mum about this, she begged me not to tell your her, "as she was talking, i ran and hugged her," i'll try and always make her happy, we shall join hands and pray for a quick recovery, pls stop crying, it's well"i consoled her. I wept the tears from Chy's eyes, and she smiled "enough of this, come and gist me on your experience as a JJC in Lagos, we gisted for long before going to aunty Amanda's room to give her food and her medicine, after that i called my mum to inform her that i arrived safely, we talked for a long, she kept on asking how i'm feeling, and how Lagos is, she asked after her friend and told her that she's ok,I faded her goodbye and slept like a new born baby, i guess it's beacuse of the journey, and the AC in the room helped me alot, though i later started shivering late in the night.
