OLIVA

After the ritual I kept having dreams of Queen Oliva telling me that Zelig was right about my powers remember he once told me that my powers are controlled by my mind. If I want to do something it happens automatically. At least there is something truthful about Zelig but there is something that bothers me. Maybe Kholiwe has answers.. 

Me:mah

I call her mah because she is treating me like her child she told me she can't conceive that's why she has no children of her own her ex husband divorced her because of that drama is everywhere even under water I'm telling you. 

Her:yes baby

Me:can I ask you something? 

Her:yah

Me:why do I sometimes fail to use my powers? 

Her:you should have used “was”

Me:why? 

Her:because that was before the ritual right? 

Me:yes

Her:your father's spirit wasn't free by then I'm sure everything will be fine now. 

Me:I see it seems like I have many problems to solve. 

Her:that's what you are destined for one day you will look back and be proud of yourself there is always light at the end of the tunnel. 

Me:where should I start with this so-called duty? 

Her:I don't know Oliva 

Me:I should start by dealing with Zelig no one plays me and lives to tell a tale. 

Her:I'm warning you once again your job here is to bring peace not to start unnecessary war. Don't let the evil consume you. 

Me:how will I win this if I don't fight? 

Her:I didn't say don't fight but don't let your anger and eagerness for revenge control you. 

Me:this is going to be hard. How do I fight the Penifers without getting violent? Susan will make that hard for me. 

Her:Oliva stop asking me questions I can't answer you are the answer to all these questions you are busy asking me I told you I have a normal gift so I can't see the unknown unless my ancestors tell me. 


It seems like there are many hidden skeletons in this matter for now let me just text Amelia her drama is in need it will help clear my head a bit before I go crazy. 

*you still owe me lunch I want it now” I then click send. 


SUSAN

Zelig is still in denial about marrying Amelia it seems like my plan of breaking him and Oliva apart isn't working the love they have for each other is too much even after partying Zelig is still attached to Olivabuti have to make sure they do not end up together I can't allow Oliva in my son's life and Nolwazi on the other side is being pushy about the situation. 

King: your mind is far away what's wrong? 

Me:Everything is wrong your son is very stubborn ever since that witch came here Zelig’s behavior has changed he is becoming weak

he is betraying us. 

Him:we should take his powers. 


That's a bit extreme 


Me:Zelig is very powerful. I'm certain wherever he is he already knows what you just uttered. 

Him:he is at his weakest point now he just lost someone he dearly loves and that will work on our advantage. 

Me:Oliva is broken wherever she is. 

Him:exactly Zelig needs to be punished for trying to turn against us losing his powers will teach him a thing or two about loyalty. 


This has to work otherwise I'm in trouble Nolwazi knows my biggest secret we were friends long time ago before I married Penifer when Zelig was few years old I cheated and conceived Princess that means she is not Penifer’s daughter and Nolwazi is now threatening me that if Zelig does not marry her daughter she will spill the beans I tried killing her with no luck I guess her witch doctor is that strong. 


OLIVA

I'm with Amelia we are eating in a comfortable silence when I hear something strange.. 

“she is really foolish”

Me:what? 

Her:what? 

Me:Were you saying something? 

Her:no why? 

Me:nothing 

“mxm”

Okay I'm losing my mind now.. 

“I can't wait for my wedding”

Me:are you getting married? 

Her:what are you talking about? 

Me:mmmhh I… overheard someone mentioning that on my way here. 

Her:who is that? 

Me:mm you know I'm new here so I don't know.. 

Her:aike they weren't talking about me. 

Me:okay 

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

SUSAN:PRINCESS YOU HAVE TO DO THIS.. 


PRINCESS :MOM I'M SCARED

 

SUSAN:A SIREN DOES NOT GET SCARED 


PRINCESS : MOM WHAT IF I MESS UP WHAT IF I GET CAUGHT WHAT IF HE DOESN'T DATE ME? 


SUSAN :TRUST ME HE WILL HE WILL SEE A BEAUTIFUL GIRL A PRINCESS ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS LURE HIM WITH YOUR MELODIC VOICE.. 


PRINCESS :WHAT WILL HAPPEN NEXT? 


SUSAN:YOU WILL DATE FOR FEW DAYS THAN YOU DROWN HIM


PRINCESS :WHY ARE WE DOING THIS? 


SUSAN :HIM AND HIS SISTER ARE EVIL THEY WANT TO DESTROY THIS OCEAN THEY WANT OUR POWERS AND SORCERIES DO YOU WANT THAT? 


PRINCESS:NO 


SUSAN :YOU SHOULD DO THIS THEN


PRINCESS:FINE I WILL DO IT. 


SUSAN:MAKE SURE ZELIG DOES NOT FIND OUT ABOUT THIS. 


PRINCESS:WHY? 


SUSAN:GE FELL FOR OLIVA AND PLEASE DON'T DISAPPOINT ME BY CATCHING FEELINGS FOR PHILA. 

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

Amelia:HEYYYYYY!!! 

me:what? 

I say blinking.. 

Her:you just zoned out what happened? 

Me:ammm nothing friend I just miss Zelig. 

“he is mine”

Me:huh? 

Her:I didn't say anything.

Me:okay I have to go.

I say as I stand up and leave…….. 

My mind is all over the place I think I just heard Amelia's thoughts my mind took me to Susan's house before Phila died this means my powers are working now that's good...

Shit...

Can it happen that Zelig is innocent in all of this?

How could I be this foolish? the traitor here is Amelia the person who claims to be my friend.

I'm shaking with anger but I remember Kholiwe's words I should not act because of anger and eagerness for revenge. I can't believe I broke up with someone I love because of a fake friend....
