Chappie Twenty Nine
(^^) Labby (^^)
A lady walked majestically to the giant building in front of her. She stopped suddenly when she met the closed gates.
Just like magic the gate opened itself, the lady continued in her journey,she entered inside the building.
‘princess’ the guard and the mid servants bowed. Without a note of acknowledgement to the people greeting her she found her way into the building.
She wandered off into the building until she came across a big room like hall, The throne room. she met a man and woman both elegantly dressed.
The man was dressed in a black flowing robe, his neck was adorned with bead necklaces, he holds a horsetail in his hands
Same thing as the woman,her flowing dress was white her neck down to her waist line was adorned with beads in form of a blouse same thing with her earrings and head.
“Welcome” they both chorus smiling happily at her.
“You are home but not yet inside, you are close but far away” the woman stated.
“This is where you belong” the Man said pointing to the throne.
“Where I belong?” The lady asked quizzically.
“Yes” they both chorus.
Ann opened her eyes “oh ” she stretched lazily on the bed
“Welcome home” she heard softly in her ears
“Bella did you say anything?” She asked looking at the sleeping figure of her sister. When she saw that she was sleeping peacefully she concluded that it wasn’t Bella talking to her maybe she was just hallucinating.
She stood up from the bed and walked down to the sitting room, she sat down on the couch in a way that her head was hung low on her knees with her knees hugging her body, she put on the TV and starts watching some sofa before she slept off again.
“Few years ago the family of Ewanzi Lawson rebelled against their youngest son who was the king of Zam Zam a sub region of the ijele’s kingdom, they hated him because he was the one the Oracle choosed instead of the first son.
The reason the Oracle choosed him was because he possessed what his brothers didn’t have that’s wisdom. Ancient times in Zam Zam wise men are used as kings but as these men died their children succeeded them but these children are not as wise as their fathers and these becomes a problem so the gods decided to send someone from the past and that’s where Lawson comes into the picture, he was a promising young man whom anyone could not even think he would become the king because he’s the last born and the last son he was seen but not heard people had been thinking his older brother Eze would succeeded the throne but the Oracle said otherwise these made his older siblings to be rebellious.Read some more interesting stories from generalloaded.com or get Topster Stories app
Modernization or not the people of Zam Zam and Ijele in particular still give regards to their tradition whatever the Oracle says is what they would follow. The people had no choice but to make Lawson their king and since his accension on the throne they started planning his death, first they delayed his marriage but he succeeded in getting married they later delayed his child bearing, as if he doesn’t have any heir and he dies it won’t be hard before the Oracle will choose another person but the gods of the land has another plan. The Almighty graced them with the birth of a baby girl. the people mocked a woman can never rule them but they later got wind of it that she will be a threat to them they decided to kill her along with her parents which they succeeded but they were not able to kill the princess. She survived. Seen but never heard of.
The throne rejected anyone not from Lawson’s blood and since then the throne has been vacant”.
“Mama? Why are you telling me this?” She asked.
“Don’t worry my child” the woman said fondly “what I told you today will come in handy some other time don’t be afraid” the woman said.
The following morning Patricia walked down to the sitting room to see her youngest daughter sleeping in the most awkward position she has ever seen ‘what did she came to do here with the TV on’ she wondered She tapped her gently “Ann Ann”
“Mum” she croaked as her eyes flustered open “good morning mum”
“Ann what’s wrong why are you sleeping like that and what are you doing here? Did you and Bella had one of your usual fights?” She asked worriedly “No mum we didn’t I just felt like coming here”
“Ok” Patricia replied
“Mum where’s granny?” She asked standing up from the chair “She’s in the garden” Patricia replied
“Oh ok ” she replied leaving the sitting room for the garden “Granny! granny! ” She called “Good morning ma” she greeted
“Granny I have some questions to ask” she said sitting beside the old woman “Go on my child” granny replied
“Granny what happened to the princess of this land?”
“Hmm” granny sighed “she had an accident with her parents but she’s not dead but we don’t know where she is” granny replies
“Gogo is that the only part of the story you know?” Ann asked further
“Yes my daughter,the royal family don’t share what’s happening within their family to the public”.
“Oh” Ann said disappointed.
“Yes any problem” granny asked concerned.
“No gogo I was just curious” she faked a smile and walked away.

The pool was divided into two parts, it has two shapes divided into two rectangular and circle form.
The swimming pool wasn’t looking like a normal swimming pool (don’t know how to explain it)
The water inside is so clean and clear it has some sweet scent coming from the water.
Ann slid into the water swimming happily from end to end and Max joined her they both swim happily and played with the water.
After some minutes they both slid out of the water. They sat under the shade provided besides the swimming pool slipping their cocktail.
