It been two weeks now since chidi and amara has been dating,maxwell was trying to play cool with the relationship between chidi and amara, on countless times they have come across each other at amara house,there was one particular day maxwell went to see amara to take her out when chidi called her to inform her that he is on his way to her house to take her for lunch, she then told maxwell that she couldn’t go with him anymore that chidi is coming over,maxwell was so angry but pretended to be okey with it,Amara even went further to visit him too but he declared,this has been happening mostly every time and it was really getting to him,he could call his mother who is his ture friend to complain to her and each time this happens his mother will feel sad and pity for her son,she then decided to take a step by going to meet Amara parents,she drove her car into the compound of Mr and Mrs uche, she came door from the car and knocked at the door,knock,knock,knock.

Mr uche :this is indeed a good news,well that’s not a problem, Amara is no longer a kid,so if maxwell intention is to make amara his wife there is no problem but has maxwell and amara dicuss about this.
Mrs ada Marcus :i won’t lie to you sir they have not,because of some things that are going on between them,that is the bad news i was talking about.
They were confused
Mrs uche :what is it
Mrs ada Marcus :i shouldn’t be the one to tell you this but I have to because it’s involves my son,Amara is having an affair with one of the university boy
Them were so shocked on hearing this,how can she think of having a relationship when she is sent to study.
Mrs uche :are you serious
Mrs ada Marcus :i am,so that is why I am here to find out if both of you are aware of this, if you are aware,then I will tell my son to back off and look for someone else,because this guy in question is a guy that shouldn’t be seen around amara, he will not be a good influence at all.
Mr uche :this is a shock to me,i have no idea about this,she has not introduce any body to us not to talk of knowing who he is.
Mrs uche :Amara, Amara, why will she be doing this.
Mr uche :you shouldn’t worry about Amara, i will call her and talk to her,you have done the proper thing by coming to her father’s house to ask for our permission,so that show that maxwell your son is the ture son of his father, you have done your part,you leave the rest for me.
Mrs ada Marcus :please try to put her in other before things get out of hand, i would love to have this family as an inlaw,please talk to her.
Mrs uche : don’t worry we will do that and after we do she will come back to her senses.
Mrs ada Marcus key,i believe what you can do
Mrs ada open her hand beg and brought out an envelope.
Mrs ada Marcus :please you people should manage this,when everything is settled ,i will not come here alone but with our kinsmen.
Mr uche surprised )all this for us
He collected it and thanked her so much and also assured her that she will hear from them,after that Mrs ada Marcus took her leave and left.
Mrs uche :that girl will not kill me
Mrs uche :i will break her,is she not my daughter, look at a good suitor that she want to lose all because she wants to enjoy what they call youth, she don’t know the kind of father she had.
Mrs uche :please my husband you need to do something.
Mr uche assured her that every thing will be fine and they both went inside the house.
