Dora And The Water god! – Blessing-Enejo Abrahams Elleywrites

Episode One.

I went blind the day my stepmother dipped her two fingers into my eyes, and my melodious voice made a river god fall in love with me.

My mother died when I was 12, leaving me with my father, and a year later, I also lost my father.

My father married my mother and his wife just a few months apart and I have a step sister who was 2 months older than me.

I was maltreated by my stepmother and her children, and I was the only one doing things around the house without anyone’s help.

By Blessing-Enejo Abrahams Elleywrites.

One of the things I loved doing most was going to the river to fetch water cos there at the river, I composed songs with my situation at that moment and I sang them with joy but most times, with pain.

I got so used to the river that I sometimes sneaked out just to go to the river and sing cos each time my stepmother caught me singing around the house, it was always double punishment.

After singing, I would sneak back to the house to complete my chores.

I was be@ten to a stupor one day for not cleaning my stepmother’s room cos I was busy with chores, and I needed to put how I was feeling into a song so I sneaked out of the house when I was cooking, thinking that I would be back early but I got delayed by this handsome hunter whom I met by the river. He enjoyed my songs so much that he made a fire and roasted his catch for us to eat right there.

When I remembered I had something on fire, it was already so late but I sprinted back to the house and when I got to the kitchen, the food in the pot was missing but the burnt part was still there in the pot.

With both hands on my head, I started to cry. My stepmother noticed I was around and came out of the house holding a cane. She dipped two fingers into my eyes and then flogged me without mercy. And after she was done flogging me, I could no longer see anything.

I became blind and was no longer allowed to do anything, I wasn’t even given food.

All I did was sit beside the house, soaked in my tears during the day, and at night, I would find my way back into the house to sleep.

My neighbor’s little son used to come each day to give me food without my stepmothers notice.

One day I had to beg him to take me to the river and when he did, I asked him to return home and come back later to take me home.

I could feel the serenity, so I managed to sit by the river and I started pouring out my heart in a song.

All of a sudden, I heard something so mighty come out of the river and I paused immediately.

I was so fr!ghtened that I began to shiver.

“Who is it?” I asked in a trembling tone.

And then, something pierced through my eyeballs and all of a sudden, I could see. I saw this shiny image standing in the river, still dancing…
