The Sun went down along with the water factory that was shutdown by the government as the investigation proceeded. The white house became calmed unlike before.
Once again, Murphy stared through the window of his room. However, his fame in the country and other neighboring countries greatly increased after the news of covetous awareness reached them. People thought Murphy isn’t a human, while some said he’s a magician. Others believed he is an angel sent from heaven.
Nonetheless, apparently, he knew the worst was yet to come in as much as the brighter sun was concerned. That occupied more of his mind than the outcome of the meeting he had with his carbinate members. Wallowing in that thought, the door of his room robustly opened. Yet, Murphy never averted his eyes from the window coz he knew no other person would enter into the room that way except Vivian.
The young girl stood at the door in her cooperate attire. “Murphy, I have to go home.” she said.
The boy turned to her. “Vivian, I’m worried.” he said.
The girl listened for him to proceed.
“The outcome of the meeting today is for me to get married.”
“What? Who do you want to marry? Sorry.. of course is good… I mean.. you know.. marriage is a good thing.” She fumbled, feeling her heartbeat, while Murphy gazed at her until she became mute. The girl lowered her head coz she couldn’t look at him again. Unfortunately, she heard his footsteps walking to her thereby increasing the beat of her heart. Surprisingly, Murphy passed her to properly close the door behind her. He returned.
“Vivian, are you okay?”
“Me?” the girl raised her head. “I’m fine.”
“I’m only seventeen. How can i possibly get married and to who? Is that not child abuse?” Murphy spread his hands. “Though will be eighteen in few months time.” he added confidentiality.
“That isn’t a problem coz if you look around you or go to the street, you’ll see so many young beautiful girls that will suit you as the president.” she hid her feelings with a smile.
“This gonna be tough.” he concluded.
“I have to go now, Murphy. Good night” she turned to leave.
“Summon everybody tomorrow at your place. I will be having a dinner with you all, and I have a surprise for someone.”
Vivian turned swiftly to see him smiling. It sounded like a marriage proposal surprise to her. So she smiled happily too, nodding her heard like an agama lizard.
On the other hand, one could see Judith in Dave’s arms as they laid naked in one bed about to go to sleep, she was staring at the ceiling, lost in a deep thought.
Dave engulfed her. “What are you thinking about?” he asked her.
Hearing the question, tears rolled down from her eyes.
“Hey, baby, what is it?” he sat up seriously.
“Teacher Nwachukwu promised to find my parents for me. Now he’s also dead.” She broke down in cry, embracing Dave. “I want to see my parents, Dave.” she cried on his shoulder.
The poor boy didn’t know what to say, rather cares her hair and back to console her.
“Stop crying, Judith. You have me.” he said. He wished he could get her parents for her but how could he do that when he was in her shoes too?
Nevertheless, the next day, Cynthia and Ada had arrived to Vivian and other’s residence waiting for Murphy to come for the dinner as planned. Vivian was the most excited. She never hesitated to tell Ada and Judith about how she believe that the surprise Murphy talked about was about proposing to her. She could be seen with the two on a bed in a room still talking about it. All were on bomshorts, looking fresh. Each held a pillow on her thighs.
“Vivian, don’t be too sure of what you’re saying oh.” Judith held one of her ears as a warning to avoid heartbreak.
“I know, but the way he sounded, the way he looked at me and the way he smiled explained it all.” she narrated again.
“Anyways, let’s hope it is the surprise. Murphy will be stupid if he doesn’t notice you.” Ada substantiated. Just then, they heard Murphy’s voice and rushed out immediately to see him at the door.
“Welcome, Mr president!!” Judith shouted happily with her hands spread in the air like a worship singer.
Murphy smiled. “It’s teacher, Judith.” he corrected.
“Whatever” she added then all chuckled. Her voice attracted Obi and Dave. They shook hands with him happily too.
“Welcome again” Obi said. “Everybody, over to the dinning table. I made the dinner myself!!” he added.
“You girls allowed Obi to cook?” Murphy giggled.
“Don’t mind him!” Ada objected.
Meanwhile, Cynthia and Daniella who were sitting together on a long cushion, maliciously watching television had not said anything neither did they behave as if Murphy had come. Others went to the dining, while they never cared.
Murphy walked to both of them slowly. Already, everywhere had become quiet except the sound of the television. Though he was standing before them but they never looked at him.
“Cynthia, how are you?” Murphy broke the silence.
“I’m fine, welcome.” she flung a remote on the cushion and stood up to the dining too without looking at Murphy for a second.
Daniella took the remote.
“Ella?” Murphy called her calmly but she paid him a deaf ear. “Ella, I’m sorry, I’ve come to spend time with all of you like in the days of teacher Nwachukwu because I don’t want you people to see me as a pompous boy. My seat requires strictness and cleverness, even excellency. You should understand that.”
Daniella said nothing rather changed another channel of the television with a frown.
“You know you look more beautiful when you frown.” Murphy jokingly told her. “What a beauty?! Like an olive, like the face of a girl eating suya with yoghurt”
Ella finally smiled. Murphy used that opportunity to carry her up from the chair, going to the dining room. “You’re as beautiful as a fried potato” he added on his way thereby causing more laughter among others even Cynthia smiled.
“Murphy, pull me down!” Ella amusingly shouted and hitting his back with the remote.
He hesitated until he sat her on a chair beside his own saying, “Behold my right hand man!” he announced. “Sorry… I mean woman” he corrected while everybody laughed.
Daniella smiled. “I’m not a woman oh. I’m a girl.” she said.
They began to eat happily like old days, also gisting at the same time. Their laughter occasionally echoed in the building.
“Murphy,” Ada called out while they listened to her.
“Yes?” Murphy replied.
“Do you remember that time you made us believe that teacher was a ghost?” she casted their minds back.
All began to laugh again.
“But I never believed ooh!” Ella shouted.
“Mhen, I was damn scared!” Cynthia confessed.
“But it sounded so real!!.” Dave also confessed.
Murphy did nothing but laughed his ribs out.
“Another one” Ada spoke up again. “Murphy, there’s a rumour that you have a surprise for us or one of us.”
Vivian eyed her.
“Yeah, that’s true.” Murphy began while everywhere went cold except the sound of ceramic plates that filled their ears. “They said I should get married oh. A young boy like me. Though it’s in the constitution.” he said.
Vivian’s heart began to beat joyfully coz he started with the marraige issue. It could be seen on her smiling face.
“But picking a wife is not the surprise” Murphy added.
Vivian’s smiling face gradually became dull.
“What’s the surprise?” Obi asked him.
Murphy flipped a finger for his guards. One of them went outside.
Everybody stopped eating, staring at the door to know what the guard will come back with. Confusingly, they saw him coming with a man and a woman.
Murphy stood up, everybody turned to him as he said, “I’m the president for a reason. Judith, behold your biological parents!”
“What!?” almost all of them shouted especially Judith who turned to the man and woman again.
She slowly began to stand up. “Is this for real?” she whispered.
“In flesh and blood, my dear, and highly authenticated.” Murphy concluded boldly…..
