my village prince and I - Season 1 - Episode 8
Read The Story


Ever since Chiamaka gave me that news my heart has been heavy, I found myself thinking about it too much, so today I decided to do something that will take my mind of it, I decided to go to bushes around the village to set traps, I had learnt from my father how to set traps, I just finished setting the last one when I decided to sit down to rest, that was when all the memories of my father came rushing down, I couldn’t hold my tear as I allowed it flow, I began to sang a song that will help my heavy heart.



I followed the voice deep into the bush, just when I had given up hope of finding the singer that’s when I saw her, she was sitting down on the ground, her skin shining like the morning sun, I couldn’t see her face but I knew she must be a beauty, my curiosity took the better part of me and I moved closer so I could see her face, just like she knew I was there she got up immediately facing me with the those beautiful eyes, I was stun to say a word, I love it better just starring at her.
Reality drew on me that I have been starring for too long without saying a word, I wanted to opened my mouth but no words came out, there were tear in her eyes which meant only one thing and that minute I so wanted to take her into my arms and console her.

why are you crying.

She starred at me without saying anything, I tried to move closer to her but she moved backward, it was hard to tell if she was scared because her face was emotionless.

am a friend, you don’t have to be afraid of me.

AMARACHI: what makes you think I am afraid of you.

Her outburst got me surprise, this sure is one hell of a brave girl and I like brave.

so why the silence.

I am only wondering what a stranger will be doing inside the bush all alone.

AFAMEFUNA : why do you think I am a stranger.

AMARACHI: isn’t it obvious, your skin seem soft even from afar, your clothes looks expensive, and your ascent doesn’t show you are from this village, are you a visitor here.

I was just starring at her because she will be the first person that didn’t recognize who I am and I love it because I got to have a real conversation without any formality to it, I had to come out with a smooth lie.

yes, you are correct I am a visitor in Amucha village.

AMARACHI: and it’s really rear to see a visitor in a royal attire.

I knew I was in for it but I wasn’t ready to give up I needed to think first before she seen through my lies.

or are you from the royal family.

AFAMEFUNA: yes, no, I mean not really.

I hate myself now, can’t believe I am stammering.

which please.

I am a servants to the royal family, am the personal servants to the prince.
I could see the surprise in her face and I knew she was buying my story.

AFAMEFUNA: about my ascent it because I was with him when he was in the US.

I have to go now.

I was surprised, why will she want to leave, she meant to turn but I quickly stood in front of her blocking her path.

come on, I just told you who I am and you are leaving, did I say something wrong, am sorry if I did.

why will you apologize to me when you have done nothing wrong.

I don’t know.

All of a sudden she gave a light laugh, she looks more beautiful when she laughed, I smile at my thought.

well you didn’t offend me, I just needed to go that all.

AFAMEFUNA : okey can you at least tell me your name, my name is Nnamdi and you are.

I said stretching out my hand for an handshake, she looked confused for sometime then she took my hand for an handshake, the electricity I felt that moment was something I can’t explain and I knew she felt same way, she quickly redraw her hand.

I really need to get going.
She walked pass me.

AFAMEFUNA: can you at least tell me your name.

She stopped not looking at me.

Amarachi, the unclean one.
Saying this she took to her heels.

AFAMEFUNA: wait, what do you mean by that.

I was actually talking to myself because she was already gone.



I got home and slept off because I was very tired, when I woke up it was already evening so I got up to make dinner, mama was already in the kitchen as I joined her, she was preparing groundnut soup as I took the vegetable leaves and started to punk them one at a time.

My mind went to the event that had happened some hours ago at the bush when I went to set my trap, I was crying thinking about my father when I felt the present of someone close to me, I quickly got up out of fear that died immediately I saw the stranger face, I don’t know but I felt this peace of mind around him which was rear, his eyes were compared to nothing I have ever seen, even his voice, God the way he talk was something else, he told me his name was Nnamdi, I so wish I could see him again, I felt the warm hand of my mother on my hands, this brought me out of my thought, there was a smile on her face.

what is making you smile this way or should I say who.

mama am not smiling, you are the one smiling not me.

I have been watching you for some minutes now and all you have been doing was looking into space and smiling, is there something you want to tell me.

I shyly looked down, I knew I can’t lie to her and can’t tell her the truth either.

tell me is he handsome.

She laughed so hard, I was surprised how she could tell .

this was just the way I felt the first day I met my husband your father, blushing.

mama am not blushing.
I said with a frown

of course you are, look at your cheeks
I used my hands to cover my face as I felt embarrass.

it alright to feel this way, you are no longer a kid, some day a man will come and take you away from this house but it should be a good man and that is my greatest prayer for you, I won’t ask you anything for now but just know that when ever you are ready to talk am always here.

I nodded in agreement.

now finish that quickly the soup is almost done.

I immediately continue with what I was doing with the vegetable leaves.
