Episode 5.

Suddenly a car pulled to a stop right in front of us, some men who were radiantly dresses came out to welcome Rogba and myself into the car. I love the feeling of royalty you know.
That’s the way to my home I said.
We will be going to the place together Rogba answered.
As an heir apparent to the throne I didn’t want to question his command, but through the drive to the palace, I was so preoccupied with how worried mother would be if she doesn’t see me soon.
We got to the palace and it was so beautiful out there, I never could imagine there was a house that’s as beautiful as the palace is in our town. It bewildering.
You are welcome my dear,
Adesewa OMo oba, the queen replied with a beautiful smile and gesture.
Good evening Ma, I replied.
How’s your mother? She is doing good MA . I can see you completely inherited almost all her beauty, but the eye is for the salami. I remembered mother always say my eye is exactly like father’s.
So I guess the queen knew my father so well too.
Go and take your bath dear, the food will be ready soon.
Rogba lead the way and I followed, we got to a room and I was wondering if I was to signal to him to excuse me or I was to keep quiet, a female maid worked in with some clothing in her hands, drop it on the bed Rogba commanded. She left and we were both alone in the room again.
Could you excuse me your majesty, he smiled and replied.
You have been be throned to me Adesewa.
Right before you were born “you were my wife and you are still mine”
I remembered mother mentioned something like that too, was that a tradition or something that people just did in the olden days? I was actually asking myself, meanwhile I should have asked mother not Myself.
He stood up, don’t worry my queen, I will be in my room waiting for you.
The palace’s rule says ” The prince and his beloved must walk to the dining together as far as they are under the same roof”
Thank you so much my king I replied.
I entered the bathroom, it was so different from ours, I have never seen this type of bathroom before so it took me a long time to take my bath, much time was spent on trying to learn how to some things in the bathroom.
I came out and I got dressed as fast as I could.
I met Aderogba at the door.
“You are an epitome of beauty my queen, mother must have put in a lot to imbibe this beauty in you”
I smiled in reply and that was because mother has done a lot just to make sure I’m a greatly breed child of hers.
We were approaching the dining when one of the maids hit me right on my fore head…
