Daniel stare at his mum continuously.

“What?” Daniel asked.

“what do you mean what? must you embarrass me?

why

did

you

left Cynthia and her father to come and watch movie

inside?” Mrs. Emily asked angrily.

“They

came here to see you not me” Daniel responded standing

up from the cushion.

“How dare

you say that to me. what have come over you?” Mrs Emily

asked.

“Nothing. Nothing mum. Why don’t you understand that

I

don’t want to do anything with that so called Cynthia

of yours?” Daniel asked.

“Shut up. Do you know what it means to be married

to the daughter of your father’s best friend?” Mrs. Emily

asked.

“I

don’t care what it means mum. Love is not buying and

selling

like business. Love is feeling. Mine feelings. doesn’t

that

mean anything to you mum?” Daniel asked back.

“Yes

honey, it does mean something to me, and what it means

to

me is, I must make something out of your life” Mrs Emily

shouted.

“You mean your life mum. It has always been you and

what

you want” Daniel replied walking to the dining. He

located

an empty sit and sat down.

“Do you know what I want?” Mrs. Emily asked

walking

to him at the dinning room.

“Listen let me tell you. I wanted your father, my

husband

to be alive all through this years. I want all the building

I

have built for to be cemented by a good marriage

between

you who I have done everything for and a girl from good

and

decent home like Cynthia. That is all that I want. that is

what

I called achievement” Mrs. Emily said.

“Spending

the rest of my life with Ella, is what I called achievement” Daniel replied.

Mrs. Emily

froze.. she went and sat beside Daniel.

“Daniel,

you want to ruin yourself? You want to ruin all I have

build

for by marrying that rat thing that doesn’t even know

her

parents” Mrs. Emily said. Daniel was shocked to

hear

that from his mum. she hardly know Ella, how come

she

now know more about her background.

“How

did you know about that?” Daniel asked surprisedly.

“You

know me. I got her thoroughly investigated. Her father

died

when she was barely 18 years old. He died as a result

of

curse” Mrs. Emily asnwered.

“From?” Daniel asked.

“The village shrine. The man she lives with it’s just

her

uncle. And you want to compare her with Cynthia? you

want

to compare her with a girl who has had the very best of

life.

A

girl of class, a girl with a solid family, degree and rich?” Mrs. Emily asked.

“All

those things means nothing to me mum. absolutely nothing” Daniel replied

standing up.

“A woman who I will love for who she is, a woman

with

nobility of character and innocence is the one I

deserve” He shouted taking back his sit.

“A

woman, I will truly love” Daniel added calmly and

Mrs. Emily smiled.

“You know darling, that is why I believe that, Cynthia

and

you will make a perfect match” Mrs. Emily said with

a smile.

“Mum. there can not be a perfect match than Ella” Daniel

responded.

Mrs. Emily got annoyed and stood up from her sit.

“You

listen to me young man. I don’t want to ever, ever,

hear

that name mentioned in this house again. Get it. You

understand

me. Nonsense” Mrs. Emily shouted angrily and left

for her room.
