THE LEGEND OF DAYO
SEASON 3: THE RIVALRY
The Passion Of A Rose
Shemen Persis opened her mouth to scream when Temi crashed to the ground, but Sage Agu Samuel reached out and gripped her arm tightly in a cruel grasp.
“No, Shemen, please don’t!” he said anxiously, and the scream died from her throat as she looked desperately at him.
“What’s wrong with him?” she asked with fear.
“He hasn’t recovered yet!” Sage Agu said as he ran to Temi’s side and gently turned him over.
“But he was so…he looked so strong a moment ago!” Persis whispered with horror, and Sage Agu Samuel nodded.
“The bravest effort I have ever seen, Shemen,” he said softly. “He was just putting on an effort, lying his way through, pretending to be strong!”
“Goodness me, you lied to us that Temi has mastered the psychic arts of healing!” Shemen whispered fiercely. “Goodness, Agu! That means death if they find out!”
He stared at her as he carefully pressed a nerve on the side of Temi’s neck.
“I lied, Shemen,” he said carefully. “I lied, because I loved King Demi, and his son looks exactly like him. And I lied because I believe Daniel Godwin is too full of himself to be a good king. Shemen, I lied at a time I wasn’t sure whether this boy is the chosen one, but I saw him taking a horrible beating, and he never once uttered a cry, or back down. Today, I’ve seen him defy a horrendous pain that would’ve killed many a man. I’ll tell you one thing for sure, Temi is The One. He is our liberator, and I have no regrets lying for him. You’re at liberty to expose me if you want.”
Shemen Persis smiled sadly at Sage Agu Samuel, and tears glistened on her lashes.[stextbox id=”alert” caption=”WARNING”]Exclusive Content to http://www.aaron-ansah-agyeman.com Do not copy or share on any other site.

She looked at the unconscious boy in the arms of Sage Agu Samuel, and then she leaned forward and kissed Temi slowly and tenderly on the lips, making the old man look at her with acute shock.
Shemen got to her feet slowly and wiped tears from her cheeks.
“You’re not the only one who loved King Demi,” she said hoarsely. “Get his son well, Agu. Make him fit again. I still believe that he will make it.”
Sage Agu Samuel just stared at her with his mouth gaping, still stunned by her actions, knowing that if it became known that she had even fleetingly entertained a sexual desire for the young prince she would definitely lose her position as a Keeper, and then she would be humiliated and cast out.
He still said nothing as she walked out slowly and closed the door behind her.
Sage Agu Samuel used all his tricks and knowledge, and by the end of the fifth day, Temi was back on his feet.
He was weak and still bruised, but outwardly, he looked presentable and assured.
It was in the afternoon of the fifth day when Sage Agu left to attend an urgent meeting, leaving Temi alone, that the young prince had a visitor he didn’t expect to see.
It was Rose Amaefule.
She was in a lovely white dress that had tiny swans and red petals in it. Her luxurious hair was tied back in a pony, exposing the fine structure of her beautiful face.
She stood in the doorway and looked across the room at Temi as he stared out of the window at some ducks playing in a pool of water outside.
He turned slowly and faced her, and his expression was cold as he regarded her.
“The girl of Daniel now comes to finish what her man started,” he said softly, his eyes calculating and unrelenting.
She stood still for a while, and then she walked slowly toward him and stopped quite close to him. She put her hands on his upper arms and looked into his eyes.
“You have a right to hate me,” she said tremulously. “I have been cruel and I have been mean to you. Yes, I thought Daniel Godwin deserved to be king and deserved to lead this crusade…but I found out I’ve been wrong about him all this while.”
Temi’s eyes roved across her face, taking in her beauty, drinking in her charm, and trying to find out if the words oozing out of her lovely lips were indeed from her heart.
“And I’m supposed to believe you,” he stated simply.
“Temi!” she whispered hoarsely. “I supported Daniel because I was in love with him…hell, I’m probably still in love with him! But a few days ago I heard him and Ziloux Escobar Adeyeye saying horrible things against you, and it sickened me! I had never thought my Daniel, the man I loved, would stoop so low to make himself king at any cost!”
Her misery and sudden pain were real, and Temi had no reason to doubt her sincerity. The harsh lines on his face softened, and he looked at her tenderly.
“Would you mind telling me what they were planning?” he asked quietly.
She nodded, and a tear rolled down her face.
“I will, yes, Temi,” she said, her voice trembling. “But not now, not here! He has allies among the Keepers, and Emma Tobi is one of them! I’m scared of him, Temi. If he knows I ratted on him, he would kill me!”
“He would do no such thing!” Temi said tightly. “I won’t let him lay a finger on you, Rose.”
“Oh, you don’t know Daniel!” Rose cried and turned away from him, her face still haunted. “But, alas, I have said too much already! Oh, Temi, please be careful! Be very careful for me!”
And with that she turned with a sob and fled from the room, leaving Temi standing still with confusion all over his face.
However, it pleased him inwardly that he now had Rose in his camp!
It really pleased him!
And she came to visit him the next day, and the next, sending Temi’s heart into spirals of ecstasy. And, on the day that he finally left the house of Sage Agu Samuel, Rose came around with Prosper Freeman to accompany him home.
Temi stood tall and proud and looked at her as she regarded him shyly beside Prosper, who looked from one to the other and tried to suppress the little smile that played around the corners of his lips.
“How’re you feeling now, Prince Temidayo?” Prosper asked quietly.
Temi answered without taking his eyes off the beautiful face of Rose.
“I’m all healed up, Commander,” Temi replied. “Hungry, yes, but with no broken bones.”
Prosper nodded appreciatively.
“I take it then, that you would be returning to the training field soon,” he said, trying to hide the concern in his voice.
Deep down he was worried that the horrible beating Daniel had meted out to young Temi would make the boy scared of setting foot on the training ground, but once again Temi shocked him with his reply.
“If you want me to go to training now, I’ll go with you,” he said evenly, dragging his eyes off Rose and looking Prosper straight in the eyes. “After what happened, my heart is now resolved to be the best warrior I can be.”
Again Prosper nodded.
“Then take this day off, Prince Temidayo David Dayo,” Prosper gave him the full address. “I’ll wait for you early tomorrow morning!”
“Yes, sir!” Temi replied, and Commander Freeman turned away smartly and marched away.
Temi walked forward, his eyes once more on the beautiful face of Rose Amaefule, who extended both hands to Temi with a sweet smile on her face.
“Oh, Temi, my Prince,” she said sweetly, causing his heart to thud with sudden exhilaration.
Trembling, without being able to control himself, he put his arms around her and drew her close to him. He wrapped her tight against his frame, and then his head hovered over hers.
He saw her lips parting, and he felt the slight tremor that passed through her. His heart was beating so hard that he could hear it in his head. When his lips found hers, it was with a satisfying sweetness that surpassed any he had ever experienced.
Her lips were soft and so sweet, parting gently to receive his probing tongue. She wrapped her tongue around his, and then they continued to kiss gently and with mounting sweetness as her arms came up slowly around his neck, and she drew his head down closer and kissed him passionately.
It was when she felt him against her lower belly, hard and probing through her dress, that she placed her hands on his chest and pushed him back gently, giggling as he tried to hold on.
He looked at her with wide eyes as he panted hard.
“Rosie!” he whispered tremulously. “I crave you as I’ve never craved any woman before!”
She smiled sweetly and shook her head once.
“I crave you too, my Prince,” she whispered. “I don’t know where this great feeling for you came from, but I do feel it. However, you will not make love to me until we make it legal.”
He was breathing hard, still burning with passion for her.
“After this campaign is over, you will be my wife,” he whispered gravelly. “That I do promise!”
She glowed at that, her happiness seeming to spread right through her bosom.
“Oh, Temi!” she whispered gravely. “How wrong I have been about you! Indeed, you’re the Chosen One! But I do fear, my love! I promised Daniel Godwin love and marriage…I’m afraid this new love you and I have found will for a fact infuriate him, and make him even more determined to kill you! Oh, my love, I’m sorely afraid!”
He took her into his strong arms.
“Do not be afraid of man or woman or beast, my love,” he said passionately. “I do love you, Rosie, and that is enough. No man shall dare harm us.”
She smiled happily.
“Hey, feel like a little picnic in the hills?” she asked. “I cooked for you, knowing you’re coming home today. Let us go up the hills and spend some few hours beside the river, my love. You’ll love it, believe me.”
“You just made my day happy, Rosie,” he said in a tight voice. “With you by my side, I’ll love everything.”
They walked away arm-in-arm, a beautiful young couple.
Sage Agu Samuel looked at them from behind the curtains and smiled secretly to himself. They looked so amazing together, one extremely handsome, the other extremely beautiful. They shouldn’t have been a match, but they were indeed the perfect match he had ever seen.
He turned away finally with a little scowl because he knew this was not a union Daniel Godwin would take kindly to.
“Oh, Temi,” Sage Agu Samuel said under his breath. “Seems to me that nothing comes to you easy! Trouble knows you by name!”[stextbox id=”info” caption=”JOIN US ON WHATSAPP“]
