OLIVA

I'm feeling some unexplainable joy in my heart I feel like I met my father in real life how I wish I met him before he died but at least now I know where I am coming from my dad told me my real surname is Acker and Amelia is the only family member I have from my paternal side. 

Kholiwe brought me back to Earth.. 

Her:what did you see? 

Me:huh? 

I asked confused I thought she saw everything.. 

Her:what did you see in that mirror? 

Me:a mirror? 

Her:I thought you were clever but clearly I was wrong this water was acting as a mirror. 

Me:mah how would I know that 

I say rolling my eyes that's how close we are with these many untold secrets I wish I can find out we are actually relatedI would be thrilled she is the only genuine one in this ocean. 

Her:stop with your nonsense and tell me what's going on

I narrated everything. 

Her:you mean Amelia is your sister? 

I nodded 

Me:I wonder how she will take the news she resents me because of Zelig. 

Her:well I guess water will be thicker than blood. 

Me:but father said we should be united 

Her:then he will make sure you unite. 

AMELIA

This woman who calls herself my mom just woke up. 

Mom:fix yourself and leave my house. 

Lindiwe:I'm not leaving this house without my daughter Nokwazi. 

Me:I'm sure you are not talking about me. 

Her:Amelia please. 

Me:noo! Go back to where you are coming from. I don't want anything to do with you the only mother I know is this one. 

I say pointing at Nolwazi. 

She was hesitant a bit but I made it clear that I don't want anything that has to do with her. Finally she is gone. 

Me:YOU!

mom:my baby.. 

Me:shut up! just shut up my whole life has been a lie you lied to me for twenty-five years. 

Her:I was scared you were going to leave me my love I couldn't lose you the thought of losing you made my heart shatter. You are the only baby I have you are the only child I can ever have Amelia you don't understand. 

Me:I don't care you should have told me don't you think I deserve to know the truth? 

Her: the fear of losing you controlled me Amelia. 

Me:you know me better than that you think I would leave you for the woman who decided to ditch me. How did I end up here anyway? 

Her:she cheated on her husband that's how you were conceived on the other side me and your father couldn't have babies. She decided to you to me in order to her marriage. 

Me:Lindiwe chose a man over her baby? 

Her:yes but I raised you well my child please don't leave me let's forget about her. 

Me:I'm afraid it's time you face your worst nightmare Nolwazi . 

I took all my belongings and went out leaving her crying and begging. 

The only place that came to mind is the palace.

Me:how can I help you Amelia? 

Her:this ocean is full of liers

Her:mom please I have nowhere to go.

She knelt down begging me irritating me even more. 

Me:well I will help you…. 

I say as I open my hand I swing it around  producing a little tornado I direct it straight to her. Just like that she was out of sight. 

Things are turning out good for me Nokwazi won't be threatening me anymore. I side smile.. 

King:what is making my wife so happy? 

Me:nothing much love I think we shouldn't force Zelig into marrying Amelia what we need to do is to focus on making him turn against Oliva. 


HARRY

Me:mom where is my sister? 

Her:she doesn't want me she chose her. 

Me:I'm not going to let that happen ever where is she? I will fetch her myself. 

Her:I'm sorry Harry things turned out like this I'm glad there was no baby involved. 

Me:what are you on about? 

Her:it's Amelia.. 

Me:say what? 

Her :Amelia is your sister. 

Me:no mom the friend you were talking about was Nolwazi ? 

She slowly nodded. 

Me:mom you mean the love of my life is my sister? 

Her:I'm sorry… 

Me:mom look at what you have done your adultery killed my father it made your children sleep together what kind of a whore are you Nx 

********

I'm now sitting in my crib thinking about my fucked up life I had to leave mom before I could continue insulting her furthermore. 

The news left me disgruntled. I hope parents know how much their actions can destroy their children. Why is everything going south for me? 

How will I look at Amelia as a sister? 


I'm desturbed by the soft knock it's Amelia she looks badly injured. 

I stand up and attend to her. 

Me:Bab… I mean Amelia. 

This is going to be hard. 

Me:what happened to you? 

Her:the queen attacked me with her sorcery

I thought she loved me. 

Me:I'm sorry we need to get you to the hospital. 


*********

NOLWAZI 

I can't believe Amelia really left me after everything that we have done for her? 

I was pacing up and down snapping my fingers.. I need Amelia by my side. 

Voice:Asha amadamu anamanzi

Me:what do you want Susan. 

Her:let's just say hmmmmm to rejoice with you. 

Me:how evil can one be kant? 

Her:haha Shame you have nothing now I'm glad you won't be threatening me again. So tell me dear friend why didn't you tell me such news. 

Mxm she is here to brag as if I have something to lose. I will teach her a lesson she will never forget.
