ARRESTED BY LOVE
(The best of Daria)
A STORY WRITTEN BY BRIGHT DANIEL
Prince Victor understood Prisca’s moves because he had seen her type a lot in abroad. So he smiled broadly and said, “What’s your name and what can i do you for?”
“Well, I’m prisca Edward. I just came to pay homage to my prince” Prisca smiled as she kept squeezing her cloth in a way her abdomen became obvious.
“That’s so nice of you. Thank you”
“You’re welcome my prince. I will take my leave now”
Prisca began to walk out shaking her buttocks vigorously. Of course the prince fed his eyes with what he saw and smiled broadly. Just then, the mother, the queen came out. She saw Lana finally leaving the house before she went to her son.
“Son, who was that girl?” she asked.
Prince victor smiled broadly again. “She’s Prisca who came to pay respect to me” he replied.
“Hmm…” the mother took a seat. “My son listen, i don’t want you to make a wrong choice while choosing a wife. Many girls in this kingdom are not what they claim to be”
“What are saying, mother? That i should choose a wife from another kingdom?”
“No my son”
“Then what are you insinuating?”
“I’ll prefer the gods choosing a wife for you”
“No, mother, i can’t allow that! I’m gonna find my wife myself!” the prince concluded.
Daria met her mother still sitting outside their compound with Lana. Therefore, she hid the paper.
“What did the prince say?” the mother asked curiously staring at her. Even Lana stretched her head like a giraffe in anticipation.
“Nothing really, mother” Daria replied.
“It can’t be nothing”
“He only asked me about my parents and said that he will pay me a visit”
Hearing that, Lana positioned her neck normally and began to scratch her head.
“Is that all?” Mrs Alfred was still inquisitive. “What’s the prince up to? Well..” she concluded and walked inside then Daria sat down with Lana.
“You and i know that the prince cannot just call you like that just to ask you who your parents are” Lana said.
“But he did” Daria glanced at her.
“Agreed, but how did he know your name? Better tell me why he called you”
“Fine, you got me” Daria smiled and brought out the paper. “He found this in the room Ebube was staying. That’s why he called to give it to me. It’s from Ebube”
“Really?” Lana wanted to take the paper but Daria withdrew her hand instantly. “What? Let me see nah!”
“See what? It’s a person belonging” Daria smiled causing a smile on Lana’s face too.
“Hmm… when did a common paper become a personal belonging?” Lana asked clapping her hands.
“Not the paper but the content of the paper” Daria replied.
“Ooh! Love nwa ntinti” they laughed.
Amara wore a very short skirt on a high-heel shoes. One could see a small bag hanging on her elbow as she walked down the staircase. Unfortunately, she met her mother going up the stairs too.
“Amara, where are you going to?”
“To see Destiny at the hospital, Mummy”
“Get back immediately!” the mother commanded. “It’s barely few days your father was killed by the same man who you are going to see!” she added.
“Mother, he’s my friend! And you and i know the truth” Amara moved forward.
“Better start packing your things back to Paris!” the mother concluded.
At the hospital, Ebube became conscious and opened his eyes gradually to see a female face looking and siding beside him on the bed-that was Amara.
“Daria?” Ebube called with a low voice.
“Thank goodness you’re awake. It’s not Daria, it’s me Amara” Amara began to touch her cheeks smiling. Ebube opened his eyes widely trying to remember the name. “D-square is me, Amara” she added.
The name ‘D-square’ made thing easier for Ebube. So he called surprisingly, “Amarachi”
“Yes, it’s me”
Ebube fully became awake then looked around. He recognise that he was in the hospital. “What happened? And what are we doing here?” he asked.
“I came back for the death of my father”
“Is your father dead? How?”
Hearing the question, Amara withdrew her hands from his cheeks to his palm. She began to squeeze it gently in tears. Of course she was touched because if Ebube had known that the man he kill was her father he wouldn’t have killed him.
“Why are you crying? I’m so sor…” a knock at the door interrupted Ebube then Daria entered with Lana. She paused at a distant when she saw Amara in tears and holding Ebube’s hand after which Amara withdrew her hand swiftly and stood up.
“Hi, Daria, welcome” she said drying her tears.
“Why are you crying” Daria asked her.
“Daria?” Ebube called Daria’s attention before she rushed him with a smile. However, Lana kept looking at Amara occasionally.
“Thank God you are awake” Daria also held his hand.
“How did i end up here?” Ebube asked.
“No need, the good news is that you’re awake”
Ebube touched her face gently with a smile on his face and said at the very sight of Amara, “I’m happy to see your face again”
“I’m happy too” Daria replied smiling. Amara also smiled but left the room immediately…
