THE DARKEST HOUR
(Cry of an angel)
“Hum.. I hope no problem. I only want to know if actually Udoka has gone to their village, nothing else” David sounded conventionally then the two men looked at each other again.
“How do you know they have gone to the village?” Trust asked looking at David.
“That shouldn’t be the question!” Sunny began with a high tone. “You should be asking him how he knew Udoka!” he looked at David. “So, you are one of those that molest young girls around”
“I beg your pardon!” David provoked. “With perturbation i asked a moderate question that requires a fascinating answer not molestation. Moreover, Udoka isn’t a young girl that can be molested so why taking me as a sexual pervert?”
Hearing the grammatical words, the two men went dumb.
“E be like say this boy go school oh” Trust voiced out.
“Who did you say is your father again?” Sunday asked.
“It doesn’t matter anymore. Thanks” David turned to leave but they called him back and apologised.
“We have not seen Udoka and her family for the past two days now and we don’t know where they are” Sunday said.
“Udoka’s manager said they left for the village due to a bankrupt” David began.
“Bankrupt?” Trusted wanted to know the meaning.
“Yes, it simply means they couldn’t pay up what they owe which is their house rent. Please, do you know the name of their village?”
“Yes, something.. Eziukwu” Sunny replied. “That’s their mother’s home town. I don’t know of their father”
“I guess her father’s is Ndiogoro” David thought for a while while the men looked surprise. “Well, thank you for the information” he concluded and hurried out.
“Chei…!!” Trust shouted with hands on his head. “This boy seems to know much about these people oh”
“When i tell you that girl Udoka is always up to something, believe me!” Sunny concentrated on their puzzle game.
David hurried up to their house with the hope of traveling to either Ndiogoro or Eziukwu in search of the girl he believed he loves. He pushed the parlour door opened forcefully and hurried to his room without even checking whether his parents were in the parlour as usual or not. He hung down his bag, put his laptop inside it and went to the wardrobe to pick out few clothes but his door cracked opened. When he saw the person who entered, his heart sank into his stomach. Therefore, he slowed down but finally brought out the clothes trying to put them into the bag too.
“I never knew you are still around, Mum”
“What are you doing, David?” the mother left the door to the bed where he was packing. She sat down.
“I’m traveling mum”
“The village. I’ve decided to visit grandmother”
“Are you sure coz this is an impromptu journey?”
“Well, it’s too late”
Hearing that, David stopped and looked at his mother. “What do you mean?” he asked.
“I can’t believe you are asking me this question. Don’t you know that your school has called off the strike? So you are leaving for school tomorrow” the mother replied.
David remained frustrated and disappointed. He wanted nothing but to see Udoka. “Mum, i can still travel and come back today or tomorrow before going back to school” he persisted.
“Do you think Ndiogoro is at your doorstep? I’m suspecting you oh, you never liked going to the village. Why all of a suddenly..” the sound of David’s cell phone interrupted Mrs Robinson-Sandra was calling….
Eziukwu and Ndiogoro aren’t far from each other. But one needs to cross several rivers before getting there on foot. With vehicles, is faster and closer through a different a route. In the land of Eziukwu, Mrs Williams and her children had been making an effort to adapt with the environment especially the twins who had left to fetch water from a stream. The stream had natural spring water running out from rocks. Monica couldn’t take off her eyes from it. Girls at their age were there fetching water too. Some tied wrappers while some were in local gowns. Only Monica and Udoka dressed like city girls. They stood closely listening to the girls conversations as they waited for their turn to fetch.
“Ndiogoro people will be having a festival in the next three market days” Faith, a girl in a gown said. She’s tall, slim and beautiful.
“Yes, and i will not miss it” Adaku, a girl in a wrapper replied. She tied the wrapper in a way her attractive thighs were visible while she was on black top. She had a slim body typology with attractive hairstyle.
“I know u don’t miss such things” Faith smiled. “Please, we shall go together oh” she added.
“You are talking as if u don’t like such things too. Well, i will call you before going” Adaku replied.
“Can we follow you girls?” Monica asked then the two girls stared at her even Udoka her sister..
