Chapter Thirty Nine

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

IMMEDIATELY Priceley had left the house for work, Sharuna sprang up from her sick bed, suddenly agile

 

 

Sick indeed

 

She had lied to Priceley that she was feeling a little sick and so, wouldn’t be able to go to school

 

 

She had planned to confront the supposed Kesmanee and know why he’s been hiding his identity

 

 

She came out from her room and rushed downstairs

 

 

But wait

 

She didn’t even know his room, so where in particular would she find him

 

 

 

Anyways, she shrugged and went outside, hoping to find him there

 

 

 

Fortunately for her, there he was, at the parking lot His head was resting on one of the cars

 

 

He was backing her, so he couldn’t see her coming

 

 

She smiled and walked quietly to him, getting ready to startle him

 

 

She got right behind him and camouflaging her voice, she called his name

 

 

“Kesmanee”

 

 

Gosh!

 

He turned back immediately without thinking

 

And yes, her trick had worked; it was him

 

 

“I said it that it’s you”, she shouted and walked closer to him

 

 

“Excuse me?”, he found his voice

 

 

She scoffed

 

“Excuse you? But you are Kesmanee, right?”

 

 

He didn’t say anything, he just watched her in awe, fighting the tears that were rushing to flow down

 

 

“But why you hiding if I may ask? It’s really you”, she pressed on

 

 

Then she came to his front and stood, her hands folded

 

 

“If you think I’m not smart enough, then wait for me”, and she rushed back into the building

 

 

What was she up to now?

 

Let him just watch

 

 

She came back minutes later with her sculpturing materials

 

 

What!

 

 

She placed them all on the floor and not minding either, she knelt down and set out to work

 

 

What was she doing?

 

 

Then it dawned on him

 

She was trying to make him in a sculpture form, to reproduce that gift she had once done for him

 

 

Would she get this now?

 

 

At first, she was failing in her attempts She tried and tried, it wasn’t just working

 

 

“Hmm”, she fumed

 

What was happening? But she once did it What was wrong

 

 

Then she tore off her sari and used it to tie her eyes with it

 

 

Kesmanee watched the girl; his wonder girl in utmost shock

 

 

Now blindfolded, she got down to work

 

And phew! How excellent

 

She got it!

 

 

Just exactly like the one she did

 

 

As soon as she was done, she removed the sari from her eyes to look at her work

 

 

She smiled

 

She got it

 

 

Then she turned to Kesmanee

 

 

“I once made this for you remember? For your birthday? Yes, I did it”, she yelled

 

 

Kesmanee couldn’t hold himself any longer, he let the tears flow, and they streamed his eyes

 

 

She was moved and tried covering the distance between them when a car horn blared from a distance

 

 

They both turned to look at the direction of the coming car and Jeeze, it was Priceley’s

 

 

She immediately packed up her materials from the floor, including the sculpture she had just made and turned to leave

 

 

“I will be back for you”, that was her last words and she ran into the house

 

 

He placed his head back on the car and cried, for a man of his age to cry

 

He really loved that girl

Sharuna looked at the big wall clock on the wall, 7:30, it read

 

 

Almost dinner time

 

She quickly dashed into the shower and had a rush bath

 

 

Then she changed into her pyjamas

 

 

By the time she was through, it was already 8:00 pm, time for dinner

 

 

She had to rush downstairs to the dining for one thing Mr Bennett hates, was lateness

 

 

The whole family was already sitted and ready, except for Mrs Bennett, Mr Bennett’s wife

 

 

She walked up to the dining and sat close to Priceley

 

 

“Hey Prag”, she waved at the young teenage girl sitting closer to Kesmanee

 

 

She was Priceley’s only sister, then it dawned on her that it was Friday, the marriage was just two days away

 

 

She gasped

 

 

Prag attended a weekly boarding school and always comes home every Fridays and goes back on Mondays

 

 

 

“Good evening Miss Sharuna”, Prag greeted, smiling

 

 

“How’s school?”, she asked after sitting

 

 

“Fine, thank you”

 

 

Then the maid came and served the food, prayers followed and the family began eating

 

 

Silence followed as they ate

 

 

“Kesmanee? Are you okay?”, Priceley asked, breaking the silence

 

 

Wait

 

He just called him Kesmanee, she had no doubt, it was him

 

 

Kesmanee looked at him and nodded

 

“I’m fine”

 

 

“Really? You have been looking worried these days, I must say”, he said

 

 

“He said he’s okay, so what’s your problem?”, Mr Bennett chipped in

 

 

“I’m ok bro. Er……. where is momma?”, he asked to change the discussion

 

 

Priceley shrugged

 

“She’s kinda sick. She gonna have dinner on bed”

 

 

“Okay”

 

 

Soon Priceley finished and got up

 

He then retired to his room

 

Sharuna purposely dallied behind, playing with her food

 

 

She needed to leave once Kesmanee leaves, thank God Priceley had gone

 

 

Then Mr Bennett got up, Kesmanee followed

 

 

“Just the ladies left”, Prag said and they laughed

 

 

“I’m leaving too”, Sharuna said and also got up, trailing Kesmanee

 

 

***********************

 

 

As soon as Kesmanee left the dining, he wanted to retire to his room immediately

 

 

But as he was walking along the windows to his room, the moon and stars on the dark sky caught his attention

 

 

And he diverted to the balcony, to watch the sky

 

 

Wow

 

It was a beautiful sight to behold

 

 

“Admiring the sky?”, a voice startled him

 

 

He couldn’t mistake it at all

 

It was his lady’s voice

 

 

He turned and saw her at the door, in her full bloom of beauty in pyjamas

 

 

She smiled and shook her head slightly

 

“I asked a question”, and she walked up to him standing closer

 

 

They were now both standing very close to each other

 

 

He sighed and ran his hands through his hair “What you doing here? It’s late”, he said softly

 

 

She smiled

 

“I came to watch the sky with you. Look how the stars sparkle”, she commended and they both turned to look at the sky together

 

 

“Look how they twinkle like the love we have for each other”, he turned to look at her,

 

 

“Look how the moon stands in their midst, to protect just like the way you protect me”

 

 

He turned to look at her again, and this time, their eyes met

 

 

Love flowed, messages were passed

 

She brought her hand close to his face and caressed it

 

 

He was already lost in world of love

 

Then he realized himself and brought her hands down

 

 

“You need to go to bed now”, he said

 

 

“I want to be with you”, she pouted

 

 

He pretended not to hear and they both walked into the house

 

 

Suddenly there was a power outage and the lights went off

 

Everywhere became dark

 

 

Sharuna always had phobia for darkness since she regained her sight It was like she was blind again whenever darkness comes

 

 

So immediately everywhere went dark, she screamed and embraced Kesmanee

 

 

He held onto her

 

They were now in a hot embrace

 

 

As suddenly as the lights went off, it came back in full force

 

 

And there was Priceley, standing by the door

 

 

He saw them both in an embrace

 

 

He smirked and walked away.

 

 

Ndozi Nuellitta

 

 

To Be Continued

 

 

I asked myself, aren’t you sure it was Priceley who put off the light??

 

 

He’s becoming suspicious now

 

 

Love y’all
