"Honey, what a surprise!, when did you arrive?" mum asked dad, he didnt reply her, he just stood in awe looking at both mother and son,
"what's this boy doing here? Who allowed you into my home? Amanda, you've disappointed me, after all we went through because of this boy, you accepted him back, and you all kept it as a secret from me,"he turned to Chy, tell me what else you're hiding from me", she meant to talk but nothing came out of her mouth,
"daaad, it.... Is.... Not...... You...... Think"she managed to say,
"Ooh, you're now a stammerer, good acting,he turned to Nelson,
" I disowned you long time ago, the day you raised your voice on me and pushed your mother downstairs was the day i disowned you,he paused.... Then continued, Mr man, how old are you?, when i was your age, i was making my parents proud, but here you are causing problems here and there,as you can see, i'm tired from a stressful journey, i need to rest, and i'm going upstairs, by the time i come down make sure you've left, or else i'll call the police on you for attempted murder, you can deceive your mother and siblings but not me, "he said calmly, he meant to go upstairs but Nelson knelt down and held his left leg,
" daddy, i'm so sorry, i dont know what came over me, it's the devil' s handwork, pls call the police to arrest me, i'm ready to pay for my sins, i've caused you all so much pains, you 've showered me with so much love but i failed to realise it, pls give me a second chance to right my wrongs, "he pleaded crying, his mother and sister knelt down too, i joined them too begging daddy,
" Honey pls, just for my sake, forgive him, we' re sorry for keeping his return away from you, pls pity me.
"then what about my company," this time he was now fuming with anger, "he nearly sent me back to the village, Nelson squandered the company's money, just few months he worked with us, imagine what will happen when he takes over the company," he fired at mummy
"such will not happen again dad, i've learnt my mistakes, pls forgive me"he continued begging, dad pushed him off and went upstairs to his room, mummy follwed him suit.
"Honey pls calm down, dont allow the devil to come between our family" she begged him
"Amanda,you've shown me how irrelevant we are in your life, we've been struggling to see you back on your feet, you're thinking of your beloved son,.... Just look at the great change in your health jusf because your son returned, this has shown me i have no place in your heart,.... Just look at your poor daughter, Chy has sacrificed alot for your well being, she left hostel and moved back home just to be always there for you, what havr you done to appreciate our efforts, how do you expect your daughter to feel"before he finished the last statement, Chy walked in,
"Dad, i've forgiven him, i dont feel anything, mum would've done the same if i were in his shoes, let's stop this blaming, let's unite the family, have you forgotten the story of the prodigal son in the bible, let's give him another chance, "she stated with tears in her eyes," her dad went to her and hugged her,. Nelson came in and knelt down again, his dad dragged him up and hugged him, they hugged, mum hugged me,
"Thank you father for answering my prayers, i cant express my gratitude, "mum said joyfully, she hugged her husband,
" ooooh, i'm almost late for my exams,when i return we gonna celebrate this, Chy said dancing, we left for her room.
She bathed, ate and left for school, i was so happy with how the family was United, i sang as i washed our dirty clothes,Mum is doing really good health wise, thanks to God.
Chy returned home late in the evening,her brother have nt gone out since he returned, he has been indoor, she bought snacks for everyone, she sang into the room.
" My bestie, what's up? Hope you didn't miss me," she winked at me,
"miss you, who are you that i will miss you, "i told her jokingly, she ran to me and siezed my neck,
" Oya tell me the truth or i'll kill you, "
" Oook, i will say nothing but the truth, i missed you so much, sooo soo much, i told her truthfully,she then released me,
"you're supposed to be a woman wrestler ooo, you nearly choked me to death", i told her
"good you missed me", she told me
"how did you manage to write your exams, i asked her.
"Dont you trust me again?, i wrote very well, guess what? You're result is out, i bought the scratch card for you, after eating i'll check it for you "she told me
" thank you s much dear, i cant wait to join you in your school, "i was so eager to check my result,.... she went to greet her parents, we all went downstairs to celebrate, it was fun.
After the celebration we all prayed together and retired to our rooms. Chy checked my result and it was wonderful, i passed,
" Congrats dear,the first batch admission list will be out next week,your
name must come out, she assured me, "Amen dear, i replied her.
We slept off peacefully.

"The lecturer is here ooo", one of the students outside shouted, trust jambites, we all rushed into the class struggling for seats.
I have gained admission into UNILAG, Chy helped me out in running around for my registrations, within one i was done, and classes have started, i called my mother to inform her of the good news, i'm now an undergraduate. Thank God mummy has recovered fully, she has gone back to her norml life, but daddy wants her to be a housewife for the meantime.....
The day's lectures ended early, my menstruation started in the morning, i was having serious cramps, i decided to leave early and rest, Chy is still running around with her assignments, i boarded a taxi and went home.when i got home, everywhere was quiet, i saw the maids in their quarters, i didnt see mummy 's car in the garage, i thought Nelson went out with him. I entered the living room from the back door, because i don't want to disturb mummy,
"where's Chy?"i stopped walking , i was startled, i turned and saw Nelson coming out of the kitchen,
"Good day, she has somethings to do in school, she'll return later in the day," a lady walked into the parlour
"baby what's keeping you? "she asked Nelson.,....
" you have a visitor,i need to freshen up and rest,where's mum,? I managed to ask him,
"She went to the salon, "
" oook, "i meant to climb the stairs when the same voice spoke again,
" Hey, wait "i turned and saw the girl that pushed me into the pool, what's that her name again......... I was still thinking of her name when she spoke again,
" Is this not the same girl from village? , the one that claimed i pushed her into the pool, and what are you doing here? "she asked me, i greeted her," gud day, "
" Ooooh pls eat your greetings, i asked a question, what are you doing here? Oooh, so you brought your village juju here to charm my man abi, you cant do that ooo, i'm Lizzy Okaro, no one messes with me in this Lagos"she fired, i looked at her and walked away,
"i dont blame you, imagine a village girl walking out on me, i blame Nelson for not keeping his manhood one place, he's been bleeping you that's why you have the guts to walk out on me, Nelson cut her short"Lizzy, will you stop being naughty, why are you angry over nothing, stop insulting that girl, he tried to be a gentleman, i was already angry with that girl, i thought of rushing towards her and giving her the beating of he life, i decided to ignore her. I didnt talk, i just entered the room and shut the door,
"Nelson you have no shame at all, i have caught you today, no wonder you've been cold towards me since i came, i should have known, first you returned home without calling me, thank God your friend David told me, and now this, i think i need to go i need to think of what to do with you. "with that she carried her bag and left, Nelson didnt bother calling her back, he entered his room.
I was in the room when i hears the gate open, i saw him driving off in his car, thank God i'm now alone, i showered, ate and slept off.

The reason Amanda loves Amaka as her own because she want her to get married to her son Nelson. I guess am right? Nice story and well done for the good job.

Following. Just came across this thread
|Re: To Hate And Love(story That Touches The Heart) By Adaobi Marianne by marianneada(f): 8:52pm On Mar 12|
"i slept off and didnt know when Chy returned,the sound of the gate woke me up, i went downstairs to check on Chy, she was in the parlour with Nelson and another guy, i greeted them and sat down beside Chy,
" Nelly boy, you didnt tell me your mother got a bride for you, "he said jokingly, Chy replied him
" Nooo, meet Amaka, a sister from another mother, she's staying here with us, Amaka meet David, Nelson's best friend, he is the only son of Otobo, "e don do na" , David stopped her,
"i'm David but you can call me Dave, i must confess you're a beautiful damsel, you look like a goddess, waohhh"he turned to Chy, abeg make i marry your friend na"we all burst out laughing ,
"Dave, you're so funny, pls leave Amaka alone, i heard you broke up with your girlfriend, what happened na, i thought you guys were in love "Chy asked
" Chy, just forget her, i've moved on", he checked his time,
"i got to go now,Chy, pls i want to take your friend out tomorrow, i want to know her more, "Chy cleared her throat," let it not be what i'm thinking oo, why asking for my permission?, let her speak for herself na, oya, Amy, Dave wants to take you out on a date, are you going with him? She asked
"i would've loved to go, but i'll be busy tomorrow" i lied to him,
"what about next tomorrow? He asked a bit disappointed, "next tomorrow......" Chy cut in, "dont worry Dave,i'll bring her out tomorrow,"
"Now i understand, i think she wont be comfortable going out with me, Chy pls accompany her, deal?, "Dealllllllll" Chy screamed,
"i forgot my nigga here, Nelly, am i free to take them out,
"you must be joking, are you serious? Asking for my permission to take two grow ups out, "
" Dave pls just ignore Nelly, i dont know why he's been quiet this evening, he didnt even join in our discussions, pls come by 3pm tomorrow, "Chy told him, he stood up and was on his way up, i waved him goodnight and went to check on mum, i've not seen her since i returned, Chy and Nelson saw Dave to the door, they spent sometime outside with him.
" My baby, how're you? Mummy asked me, it seems you're slimming down already, these lecturers shouldn't stress my baby oo," she waved at me to sit beside her,
"mummy, good evening, i was having menstrual pains but i'm ok now, waaoooh, your hair is so cute, i love the style, "i flattered her, she smiled
" mummy sometimes, i see myself in you,this your new hairstyle brought out the beauty in you, "thank you my dear," we gisted before i retired to our room.
"Catch ya!," Chy screamed behind me,
"when will you ever grow up and stop all these, "i asked her playfully,
" see who's talking, when people see you talking, they will think you're my elder sister, they won't know that we're mates, born on the same day, and in the same hospital,aunty Amy"she laughed at me, she continued, Amy, wait ooo, Dave is very serious about you,he wouldnt let me rest, he begged for your number, i'm sorry i gave it to him,he couldn't stop pestering for it, "
" Chy, why would you give my number to that guy, i dont even know him, i dont need distractions from any boy ooo, this my course no be moi moi course ooo, International Relations, hmmm, "i told her
" pls forget that your course, thank God they didnt give you law, you would've shut us out of your life na,just give Dave a chance in your life, that guy is rich, you think we're rich, go to his house and see what being rich is all about, he'll take you round the world, "
" Chy, why are you wasting time preaching to me about Dave, just break up with your boyfriend and move on with Dave, you think it's about money, "
" Aaah, abeg don't go there oko, i love my guy na, i see Dave as an elder brother, he's been here with us from childhood "
" thank you preacher, i'll think about it, i made for the bathroom to shower before going down for dinner,
I came out and heard my phone ringing, i missed the call, then a message came in, on my whatsapp and it reads, "hey babe, how're you doing, just got home now, this is my number, remember our date tomorrow, take care, from Dave." as if i cared whether he got home or not, i dropped the phone on the bed, dressed up and went down for dinner.
I dont know what relationship is all about, but i've heard of heartbreak, i don't know what it means to be in love, i must really be careful with this Dave of a guy, and being Nelson's friend is another problem, hope he doesnt behave like him, though he seems to have changed but i'm still watching him, so is dad, he's scared of taking him to the company because of his previous behavior, but he's making plans for his return to the company.

The next day's lecture ended around 1pm,i called Chy to know if she's done, she came few minutes later and we went home.
We got home and met Nelson with his friend waiting for us,
"Dave, gud day, you came early ooo, "
" yeah, i dont want my babe to change her mind, "
" mmmh, this your love easy oo," she said, i quickly greeted them and went upstairs to shower and change.
"i'm going to my room, see you guys later"Nelson spoke for the first time since we returned from school. Before 3pm,we were set to leave, we came down to meet Dave.
"You girls are looking gorgeous,", "he flattered us, can we leave now,"? Chy asked him
" of course, ladies first "he opened the door for us,
" i'm going out with you guys, i'm bored staying at home"Nelson said coming down the stairs,
"If you're bored, call your girlfriend, Lizzy, to and keep you busy"she replief him
, "i think it's time you learn to mind your business, you that is going out with Dave, is he your boyfriend?" he fired at Chy
"why are you getting worked up over nothing, pls i'm not the cause of whatever is happening to you, pls i'm out of here, she said said walking to Dave's car, "let's go man,..." Nelson told him, we all came outside, then he stopped us as we were about entering Dave's car,
"i'm bringing my car, i think Chy will drive with you while i drive with Amaka"he said
"Noooo, Amaka is my date na,let your sister drive with you na. Dave answered him
"i know she's your date, we're going to end up in the same restaurant, then you can talk to her, you know how annoying Chioma can be sometimes, "he tried to explain to Dave," Ook, you can drive her, but always remember she's my girl oo,"with that he entered his car, Nelson opened his car and i entered, then he zoomed off.
****Our drive was quiet, he was playing nice songs and he sang along with them, i noticed how handsome he is, i've known him to be handsome but he's looking so cute, i removed my thoughts from him, moreover he's in a serious relationship, suddenly, he turned down the volume of the song, "i'm sorry for what my girlfriend said to you yesterday, she can be stubborn at times"
"I've forgotten that pls, "i told
" i'm surprised you didn't tell mum or Chy about it"
"so i'm now a gossip, pls forget that thing "
" so how's school?, hope you're not being stressed with school registration stuffs, i know how tiring it can be"
"Chy helped me with everything, i'm done with it"
"So do you like my friend?," i wasn't expecting that question, "i just met him yesterday, and i cant answer that question,with time i'll know," thank God we've finally arrived our destination, we packed in front of a five star hotel, Dave walked to me, and took me inside, he eyed Nelson.
I really enjoyed myself, so did Chy, we had fun, Nelson was quiet as usual, we chatted and played, Nelson wasn't finding it funny, i noticed his phone has been ringing and he doesnt want to pick it"guy, pick your phone na, maybe it's your babe, "Dave told him,
" it's not an important call, ignore it"he replied, then he switched off the phone.Nelson told us it's time to go home, Chy didnt find it funny at all, she just complied, Nelson said there's no need Dave driving you girls home, since his house is close by, Dave hugged me and promised to call me later at night.
Nelson drove us home, i was glad we were home, at least let me be free from Dave's questions, i decided to talk to mummy about Dave, i need her motherly advice.

|Re: To Hate And Love(story That Touches The Heart) By Adaobi Marianne by marianneada(f): 10:27am On Mar 13|
"Why did you cut our outing short, and you were unnecessarily annoying today" Chy fired at him immediately we entered the living room,
"You should be happy you have a caring brother like me, as if you dont know Dave, i wont allow anyone mess with any of you, i need to be sure of his feelings towards Amy, and dont forget..., they just met yesterday "he smirked at Chy.
" thank you, pls if you're having issues with your girlfriend just go and settle your scores with her, and pls next dont follow us out again, you're not our bodyguard, "she stormed upstairs,
" Yes madam, remember you're my younger sister and it is my right to protect you whether you like it or not"he told her
"I'll report you to mummy, you're stepping on my toes"she yelled from the stairs,
This two siblings always make me laugh, always arguing over little things, i went upstairs to bathe and talk to mummy.
"good evening mummy," i greeted her as i entered her room, "evening my dear, seems you went out, i searched for you, i didn't see you,"
"Yes mum, Dave took us out," i told her
"Us?, who and who are the Us? She asked me
"Chy, Nelson and i".
"mmmmh, hope you had fun?
"that's why i'm here, "she looked at me with a suspiciously,
" Mummy, ahh, it's not what you think,"i paused thinking of how to start,...... Mum,Dave likes me,but i dont want to rush things, "she looked at me again
" My baby is now a big girl,don't allow looks to deceive you dear, just learn to follow your heart, but always be careful "i hugged her" thanks so much mum"i thanked her"," you're welcome my baby, "and pls remember never to rush into a relationship"
"ok mum",good night, luv u"i left her room.
Immediately i entered our room, my phone rang, the caller ID was Dave,
"Hello, sweetie, hope you're home? He asked me,
"yeah, we're home"
"pls, i'll come to your school and pick you up tomorrow, i want to discuss something important with you,pls dont say no, i'll bring you back home safely, take care, bye"with that he cut the phone
He didnt even allow me to say yes or no,
i told Chy everything and she urged me to go, that he wont harm me.
