She was driven out of his uncle home she went to visit Maama and Jonsaba they urged her to stay with them until she put to bed but she refused;
“I am not staying with you even Alieu does not know I am keeping his baby I’ll suffer for my baby and his dad Allah will see me through and shall shame the enemy.”
“I am not sure whether Alieu will come again but wherever he is he will not be happy with your decision our compound is big enough for all of us whenever you change your mind you can come back this is your home Alieu’ home.”
Maama and Jonsaba
The duo cried they don’t want Mba to go away what was she to face? But they don’t have a choice they do not want to force her it is her democracy.
“I believe in Allah he will see us through wherever Alieu is I’ll wait for him and if he dies Allah forbid he will be in my heart.”
Omar Nyaling (Adedemos)
He is bent down to marry Mba if Alieu is no more.
“I cannot understand you; is Alieu still alive? How you are talking I am no longer sure whether my son is still alive.”
“I don’t have any ill feeling what I just fear is if Alieu returns for his wife?”
“No he is not dead Alieu is very alive and kicking my only worries if over there drugs are capital offences and calls for long sentences.”
“Allah is great none of such will happen do not allow society to hear it our family will be laughed at.”
“Okay I wanted to put both child and mother to be at ease and to enjoy what we have not enjoyed including his father Alieu Badara.”
Alieu is abroad ‘chilling’ with his friend they found each other while abroad both were helped to Europe by ‘Dollar’.
“What are we going to do for our friend? His efforts brought us abroad.”
“We will raise fund for him, it is jealousy he is a good guy no grudge for anyone, Allah will see him through he has not done anything.”
“Your brother is very strange he refused to give you your sister’, mother’ and your fiancée phones what is he up to?”
“What are you saying? My brother is an angel he has done everything for me I am indebted to him forever.” He drove him away.
“Away from my sight I don’t need you again for life.”
Badara went away.
He explained his intention to him;
“Alieu is sentenced to life it is very bitter I cannot tell my mother that I want the child and his mother to live descent lives and to enjoy what we have not enjoyed.”
“I’ll support your 100%.”
“You’ll support me.” He nodded his head.
He gave him a fat envelop he is above the sky.
“I am an ATM machine.” He bluffed.
Omar (Adedemos) listed the things he would do for Uncle Boto if he marries Mba.
“I’ll build a mansion, bought you a car to transact your business and I’ll give plenty of cash for your pocket money to dash around.”
“Me! All that for me? Mba is yours just trust me.”
She was called by her Uncle;
“This young man is here he wants your hand in marriage.”
“I don’t want I know him he is my fiancé’ elder brother.”
He sees her as being stupid;
“You are foolish where is your fiancé has he not ran away?”
“I don’t know about that but I don’t love him.”
“Take it easy I’ll wait for her.” He gave him a fat envelop and left.
Maama was having an afternoon snap she has a dream, in the dream Alieu was being hit by the shrine
he cried his heart out; Maama had a rude wake up and she was worried.
“What is this? I hope my son is safe this drug and all that?”
He is an opportunist he thought of everything Omar told him and he does not want to lose them.
“I’ll kill you if you did not marry him. Who is Alieu? What has he done for you? Someone wants to take care of your bastard son and you are bluffing?”
“Uncle with all due respect my son has a father but we are yet to be married that’s all.”
“Pack your luggaye and leave my compound I’ll not habour you.”
She took her luggaye and left.
