Mrs. Emily and his son Daniel was having their dinner.

Daniel

asked his mum why she reacted that way towards Ella

earlier today.

Mrs. Emily didn’t say anything rather, she concentrated

more

on her food.

“Mum, you haven’t said anything” Daniel reminded her

playing

with his food.

“Eeh about what?” Mrs. Emily asked.

“About

Ella” Daniel said. Mrs. Emily went mute for some

minutes.

“Eat your food before it get cold” Mrs. Emily responded.

“Don’t

try to change subject mum. I need to know what you

think about her” Daniel said.

“Forget her” Mrs. Emily responded. It came as a shock

to Danny.

“Forget her?” Daniel asked curiously, But Mrs. Emily

didn’t say anything.

“Mum” Daniel shouted at her.

“Listen to me Daniel. There’s more to life than what

you

see. Someday, you will get to see what I see” Mrs. Emily

said.

“What does that got to do with my love for Ella?” Daniel

asked angrily.

“Love?” Mrs. Emily laughed cleaning her mouth with

a towel.

“Anyway, I met chief Okoafor and his daughter Cynthia.

she’s

now a big grown now. You know that?” Mrs. Emily

asked.

“Mum” Daniel called angrily.

“She’s coming in from America next week. You know

why?

because of you. Both of you will make a perfect couple.

infact,

you better reason with me, because that will be the

only

way of cementing the relationship between the two

families,

And you know what darling! that is what your father

would

love if he was to be alive” Mrs. Emily said with a smile.

Daniel

was confused and the same time annoyed. He couldn’t

believe

what his mum just vomited.

“Mum, I don’t understand what this is all about” Daniel

said.

Mrs. Emily stood up from her sit angrily.

“Listen

to me young man. Consider this matter closed” She

said

with a frown and walked away. Daniel relax back on his

sit

in a confused state with only one question reading

on

his mind” what is happening”

The Flowing Day.

Daniel was seen dressing up and watching at himself on

a

mirror. meanwhile, he was answering a call and it was Ella

on the line.

“Okay baby, I will be there soon. alright baby, I love you too with

all

my heart” He dropped the call and continued dressing up. Mrs. Emily

who

overheard his phone called walked in with a straight face.

“And

who was that?” She asked.

“Ella” Daniel responded adjusting his tie.

“You don’t

seem to understand, do you?” Mrs. Emily asked Daniel.

“Mum,

I cannot understand, if you cannot understand my feelings” Daniel

responded.

“Feelings? what

do you know?” Mrs Emily asked Daniel.

“Enough

to know that I love Ella and nothing, not even your so called

Cynthia

can change that” He said walking to the sitting room.

“Let

me educate you” Mrs Emily shouted at him. she hurried down

to

the sitting room and saw Daniel putting on his shoes.

“Do

you know what it takes to be a widow at the time of your marriage?” Mrs Emily asked Daniel.

he

paid deaf ears concentrating on wearing his shoes.

“Listen

to me young man. I’m talking to you” Mrs. Emily shouted at

Daniel.

Danny paused and stare at his mum.

“I’m

listening mum” Daniel responded.

“Do you know what it takes? the sacrifices of raising an

only

son? it’s not everyday that you see a woman start a difference

from

the crash like I have done and you know why?” Mrs. Emily asked

sitting

down beside Daniel on a cushion.

“mum what”

“I will tell you why. I made all the sacrifices because I knew

that

one day, it will all be yours. Daniel, you’re the center of My life” Mrs

Emily said.

“Mum, and if you love me and you want my happiness, then,

you

will let me marry Ella” Daniel said. Mrs. Emily frowned on hearing that

from Daniel.

“Oh come on. she’s nobody. She’s not from our class. she’s

pay degree” Mrs Emily said.

“I don’t care. I don’t care if she’s somebody or nobody or pay degree or degree pay or whatever.

I

love her and that is period. mum please excuse me, I’m late

for

work” Daniel said and stood up to leave for work.

“And

where do you think you’re going to young man? I haven’t

“Mum, I’m late for work please” Daniel responded and left.

“My son

who have never disobeyed me before, is now actually slipping out

of my hands.

Ella’s

friend told her.

“Hmm. possessive. this one is hotcake, hot factual” Ella

responded.

“What about Daniel. How does he feel about this?” Ogechi asked.

“How

will he feel if not bittered. She seems impossible” Ella’s eyes

went

to the door and behold, there stood Mrs. Emily. she used her

hand

to cover her mouth. she stood up and rushed to Mrs. Emily.

“welcome ma” Ella greeted

“Good afternoon ma” Ogechi also greeted. Mrs Emily ignored their

greetings
