In a community there lived a young girl named Ifeyinwa,she was an orphan who lost her parents when she was little,her father died when she was 3years while her mother died after a month of the death of her father.

Ifeyinwa was living with her wicked aunty,her aunty always maltreated her,she gives her hard works to do, like heaping clothes for her to wash both neat and dirty clothes.Her aunty treated her badly but cares for her own children.

One hot afternoon, Ifeyinwa was cooking with her Aunty,She was pounding pepper and mistakenly the pepper entered into her eyes,she shouted and started crying,her aunty didn’t even care to help her.

Chidi heard her crying and rushed out of the house and helped Ifeyinwa to wash her face.His mother was angry with him and shouted at him

“Why did you help her”Mrs Akudo asked

“Mama you’re wicked, why do you hate Ifeyinwa this much”Chidi said as he turned to Ifeyinwa and pleaded with her to stop crying

“Please don’t cry, I hope you’re fine now”Chidi consoled her

“I’m fine now”Ifeyinwa replied,she continued crying as she left the kitchen.

Ifeyinwa cried and went to the village square,she sat down close to the iroko tree and started singing and was crying, thinking about her parents.

The iroko tree dances immediately Ifeyinwa started singing.Ifeyinwa was shocked,she stopped singing, the tree also stopped dancing,she stood up and looked at the tree,she was scared and ran home.

Ifeyinwa never knew that there was something special in her voice that made the tree dance.
