Aunt came back three hours later. She looked beautiful with the shoulder length crochet braids.
"Wow,your hair stylist sure did a good job. This is beautiful."
"Thank you darling"
Just then a call came in for aunt. She picked it.
"Yes,Philip. Gosh Philip! I never told you such young man. Their flight lands by 6pm."
There was silence for few seconds.
"Alright,alright. Just make sure you are there by 6pm. I don't want them to wait for you. Taken?"
She cut the call.
"Well,that was Philip. I employed him as the driver some months back. He's a really good one."
"Well baby, I went a little shopping and got you a new phone." She brought out a Gionee M5 mini for me.
I was overjoyed. My previous phone got lost during the burial of my mother. I didn't understand why a human being would steal in a burial.
"Don't mention. We're preparing coconut rice for this evening. I suggest we start now. It's almost five o'clock."
We started the preparations. In less than no time,we were done. We went to freshen up before Uncle and the girls arrived.
Aunt was ready before me. I came downstairs to meet her grinning from ear to ear.
"Aunt,don't let your lips tear o."
"Baby,when you get married to the one your heart beats for,you'll understand that I can't help it."
"You're growing into a beautiful young lady. Soon,prince charming will arrive and I will dance better dance."
"Aunt! That's still far. I have to go to school and establish myself first."
"Nothing's too far o. You're 16 dear. It'll be here before you know it."
"Well if you say so aunt."
Her face was now devoid of the smile she carried earlier. She sighed and then said to me " Jamille,there are things you must know but not now. I only want you to prepare your mind."
I was a bit scared "Are these things very bad?"
Her smile returned.
"Of course not. I didn't mean to scare you. I'll tell you before prince charming takes you from me."
"Nobody can take me from you aunt. I'd rather die than allow that."
She laughed. "We'll see dear. I understand you put in University of Uyo as your first choice of university."
"Yes aunt, I did. I still want to study Mass Communication. I made the cut-off point in the UTME."
"I know, the names for admission will be out in September. This is July. I have only a month to be with you fully."
"Ah ah aunt, I'll be around for you always."
She pulled me in for a hug. Aunt Liz was the greatest hugger in the world. She cherished hugs a lot.
"Never forget I love you dear."
"I love you more aunt."
We heard the honk of the horn outside the gate. Aunt rushed outside immediately. Before I went out, I prayed that I would fit in here. I wasn't scared of Uncle Liam. I knew he loved me. It was the thought of the girls that gave me a headache. I brushed the evil thoughts aside and went out to welcome them.

Awwww this story is soo touching!!! ! For the most preferred character I think I would also go with Hadampson too Aunt liz is just an angel to that family gush I dread the thought of what would have happened if she didn't come at the time she did!! But EvaJael if Aunt Liz is 49 years and Brian is younger to her and he already has 16 year old children did he then get married at 20!!! Coupled with the fact that he is a neurosurgeon!!
|Re: Hidden Diamonds by EvaJael(f): 8:18pm On May 07, 2017|
Oly23:I'm sorry I didn't state that Brian and aunt Liz are a year apart. If you notice their conversation,they speak almost like mates.I assumed he got married at 31 and had his kids at 32.
About his career, I know of men that continued with their medical courses even after having a family. Jamille and Jason are not too close to their dad because they missed his presence since childhood.
Thanks for the observation. I hope u get it now

"Hey there princess"
I hugged him and he lifted me off my feet and twirled.
"Aww princess,I missed you."
He placed me on the ground again.
"I missed you more uncle."
"Look at you,all grown up. I love you baby."
We were still talking when I felt a tap on my shoulder. I turned to meet two radiant faces smiling at me.
"You must be Jamille,we've been dying to meet you." They gave me a hug that was far firmer than Aunt Liz's.
"Well,well, I'm excited to see you guys too. You've learnt the art of hugging from Aunt Liz and I must confess,you're good at what you do."
"Alright everyone,let's go inside."
The girls were quite a handful. They sure knew how to talk well. They talked throughout dinner. Aunt Liz and Uncle Liam ate their dinner in the sit-out. The girls asked a lot of questions.
"So Jamille,do you know our names? We've been so silly not to tell you."
I decided not to display my ignorance just yet. I pointed to the fair one, "You're Kara and the beautiful ebony beside you is Rachel."
"You know our names?!"
I heaved a sigh of relief mentally,glad I guessed right for the first time in my entire life.
"Yes Kara, I know your names."
"Wow! I feel guilty that I don't know anything about you when you care enough to know my name."
"It's nothing really. I'm just the same as you. I don't know anything about you apart from your names."
They both giggled.
"I'll go first" Rachel said.
"My name is Rachel. I'm eighteen and in my second year in the university. I'm studying pharmacy. I love reading novels more than my school books. Mum says she doesn't know how I make good grades. I guess that's the little I can say for now. Oh wait! Another important thing about me is that I hate guys with my soul."
I laughed at that.
"You have got to be kidding me."
"No, I'm damn serious. They're so..."
Kara cut in." Please don't start with your plenty adjectives you use to describe guys. Madam English. Let's pack the plates and wash up. There's plenty time to gist
It was actually fun cleaning up with them. They had numerous tales from the university to tell. We went upstairs and they forced me to go to Kara's room where we all stayed.
"So,let's continue with our introduction." Rachel said.
"Oh yes,my turn. I'm Kara and I'm 19. A second year student of Medicine and Surgery. Don't be surprised, I didn't make the cut-off mark for medicine at first attempt. So,the second trial landed me with that young lady there. I love music more than life itself. Novels are a big NO for me. I love travelling and learning new things. I have a boyfriend that dad hates. We're still together though. I don't have time for dad's silly suspicions. I love him and he loves me too. That's all that matters to me. He's a third year student of architecture."
"Imagine all this drama in the life of a 19 year old."
"Rachel, put a lid on it." Kara cautioned.
Rachel ignored her. "It's your turn Jamille."
"OK. My name's Jamille. I'm 16 and I just finished high school. I have a twin brother,Jason. I'm awaiting admission into Uniuyo to study mass communication. The only guy in my life is my brother. I have no time for the rest. I lost my mum some weeks ago. It's not been easy but I'm scaling through."
"Our condolences dear." Kara said.
"Let's talk about something else so that Jamille doesn't get sad." Rachel suggested.
We talked about lots of things till we started falling asleep one after the other. I guess I was the last to sleep. It was simply fun to have them around.
