Story: MY TREASURE Chapter 8

Story: MY TREASURE Chapter 8
MY TREASURE
Chapter 8

.... I ran out and couldn't find Ehi,I went back inside took my car keys and rushed out again driving out,while mother kept shouting asking me to come back...

I drove to her place,but she wasn't home,I tried calling her phone but she wasn't picking either,,,haven waited for about two hours and she didn't show up,I returned home,I was very worried,I didn't know where to go look for her,the only friend I knew she had Ada,I didn't have her phone number.....

See Amadin,what I can see seating down, you'd never see it even if you climb the highest mountain, that girl is not for you,she doesn't deserve your love,move on with your life and do the right thing mother said,,,I didn't know what to say that I won't sound rude to her,hence I kept quiet and went inside my room....

I was going mad, I didn't know what to do next,the following day I went back to her place being Sunday,but she wasn't home still,,I had called Stan and Ken to ask if they know any friend of hers where she'd possibly be,but neither of them did......

I went back on Monday morning again,and her door was open,I knocked and she opened, immediately she saw I was the one,she was about closing it but I forced myself inside..

What do you want here,she asked angrily...

Baby,where have you been,I have called you a thousand time,I believe the network personnel would think I am probably mad, Ehi I am sorry about my mom, please,,I explained..

Your mother obviously does not like me,and she isn't even pretentious about it,to make matter worse,she thinks I am a gold digger,what did I do to her, she's meeting me for the first time yet has so much hate for me,,see AD I appreciate all you've done for me,but please I don't want any problems,just leave me alone and listen to your mother...she said ...

Ehi Come on,stop talking like that,you know how much I love you,you are my very existence,the reason I live, it's either you or no one else,no matter what,I would always be with you and for you,I reassured her,,,I hugged her tightly and she slowly hugged me back...

I returned home later in the evening,and mother was angrily waiting for me,young man where have you been since morning,she asked..

Mother I am 28,I am an adult,so I shouldn't be questioned like thar,I said...

Yes you are an adult but act like one And stop Behaving like a child,men takes responsibilities,men do everything and anything to protect their family's legacy,but mine,what does he do,at 28 still wasting away,,, Amadin for heaven sake you are done with your education and service,what is holding you back,why all these,do you realize your inheritance is at sake,,,are you telling me you didn't see any Igbo lady home and even away from home to settle with,what is your problem mother quarried....

Well mother one doesn't tell the heart who or who not to love,my heart beat for Ehi and Ehi alone,I said.......

So you mean you would rather bring shame to your family,and discontinuity of your father's legacy because of a woman,mom asked angrily...

Mother,I love Ehiwenma, I really do,I said.

Amadin,love is not enough,there comes a time when love will not be enough to keep you and your partner,you can not live with yourself, knowing that you have failed your generation,Amadi, you have to think about not just yourself, but everyone else,,,mother Said...

Mother,these rules can be changed,I should be able to marry whoever I want,and from what ever tribe,I can not live my life without Ehi,am sorry mother,I said politely...

Then you cease to be my son,from today,I do not have a son, mother walked angrily to the guest room,took her bag and was out again..

Mother where are you going,it late,you can't possibly be leaving at this time,it's past 8pm,I tried to stop her....

Get your hands off me,your father would weep in his grave for the shame you have brought to him,she said and walked out to her car while I ran after her, mother, mother, mother,but she wasn't listening,she drove off.....

I was confused,I didn't know what to do,I was in the middle of the deep blue sea and the devil...I love Ehi too much to live life without her,and I love my mother too much to be disowned by her....

I decided to give mother some time, that perhaps she could take back her words,, Stan and Ken where done with service and had returned home,I told them about the situation at hand....

But you should have known this,I tried to warn you,I knew it was not possible for you to marry someone from a different tribe as your father even stated it in his will that if you must take over from him,you must be responsible and married to a woman form the eastern part,,I told you, but you were in love,you know you can't get disinherited,how would you survive,see you have to rethink this through,,,, Stan said...

Stan,you know how much I love Ehi,I can't let her go....

This isn't just about you Amadi,alot of things would go wrong if you do not do the needful, Stan said...

AD,are you sure Ehi is worth all these trouble,I mean,it was fun while it lasted,since the situation is like this,I honestly feels letting her go would be the best, ken added....

Don't worry guys,I shall pay a visit to my mother, Stanley we shall be going home In two days,I said....

No problem man,he replied....

We were set to go home, Ehi was there, please go safe,and I pray everything goes well with your mother,she said...

Thank you honey,I honestly do hope she accepts us,but just know no matter what, it's you and I,I said and planted a kiss on her lip....

After a long ride of about 9hours,we got home..

You're welcome sir,greeted the gate keeper John.....

I responded cheerfully and went in...

Mother and my sister were on the dinning table, about having dinner when we walked in...

Greetings mother,I said.
But she didn't answer me,neither did my sister give me her usual warm reception....

Goodevening mam, Stan greeted...

Mother walked up to him, slapped him,,you were supposed to be his personal assistant,I treated you like a son,so did my husband when he was alive,I promised your father I was going to treat you right and send you to school on his dying bed,and I kept that promise,I gave you all the privileges I gave my son,you had just one task,and that was to make sure that my son never makes any mistake in life and school,and you watched him choose a woman from another tribe,yet you couldn't do anything to stop it, knowing fully well that was against his father's wish for him,mother shouted at Stan...

Mother, please it's no fault of Stan, neither mine,I just feel in love and I couldn't help it, please mother,I need you,I need your blessings,,I pleaded....

Amadin you father's company will slip through your fingers all because of a woman,all your father worked for will go to charity, you would be disinherited as stated in your father's will, it's your father,and father's tradition and you know that,yet you are bent on Lossing everything because of a woman you are not sure of,she said ..

What has this woman given you brother,that you want to trade everything for her love,Chiamaka, my sister asked...

But unfortunately I had no answer....

Amadi,get yourself out of this building,and never return, unless you are ready to obey your father's wish,,mother said and went inside....

I wanted to stay back,for my mother,but I knew I'd never be happy without Ehi,hence I walked to my car,with Stan beside me,and drove off slowly, leaving my family behind for the one I love,I only hoped I was doing the right thing...

To be continued
