Eka was animated with a sewing machine in the house. She took the measurement of herself and cut the right size of cloth from the cloth ...
The boys and girls jostled amongst themselves to provide her with the answer she sought. One of the girls took her by the hand and said, “Come with me, my seamstress has a weaving machine. I will take you to her.” One of the boys came in-between Eka and the girl who offered to help her and announced, “I take you to my brother he is a tailor and can weave your clothes for you.” The girl pushed him away and yelled, “I offered to help her first! Your brother is a bad tailor and steals people’s clothes!” Eka did not like the sound of that so she opted to follow the girl. The group of young people were so impressed with her look that they all offered to accompany her and their friend to where Eka’s clothe would be woven for her. On the way, they plied her with all sorts of questions about her skin, her hair, her eyes and her overall beauty. The boys wanted to know if she had younger sisters like her. It had been long since she spent time with anybody except Dr. Gerry. The group reminded her of her street and almost made her cry. She told them that she could make clothes for both male and female. The boys were the first to offer to bring her clothes to make for them, while two of the girls promised to give her clothes to make school uniform for them. Their major interest was just to get close to Eka. She knew it and didn’t mind so long as they would keep giving her clothes to make for them.
Back at work Dr. Gerry was in confusion. Since he left Ekaette, all sorts of thoughts were going through his mind. It was clear to him that he liked Eka a lot, but she was only a girl. On his fingers Dr. Gerry counted how many years it would take for Eka to turn eighteen years. He said to himself, “Four years! But she looks like she was already nineteen and talks like an adult.” Still talking to himself, he said, “I would like to wait for Ekaette, but it is going to be quite a long wait. But what if she sees someone else and falls in love with him while I am waiting for her?” Dr. Gerry’s face furrowed with anxiety. He didn’t like the thought of that. “But it is too early to talk to her about my feelings for her. I think if I don’t let her know my feelings, her heart might be swayed by another,” Dr. Gerry thought. He scratched his head in confusion, stood to his feet and slammed his hand on his table and said to himself, “I want to be a good man to this girl and do the right things around her. However I don’t want to lose her!” He sat back on his seat and thought hard and long about Ekaette. Finally he decided to call his sister and ask her to come see Eka that evening.
“It is hard! And what if I lose her while waiting for her?” “Gerald, you are in a fix. I agree with you. I will come over this evening to see her. Maybe after that we will decide what to do. But whatever you do, please don’t tell her you love her, she is only a child.” “Okay, I won’t do that, but I bet you will change your opinion when you see her.” “I think you should rather concern yourself with whether she is a good person and can make a good wife. Also you should know that once teenagers grow older, they change a lot. Their views about love and life shift massively. I can bet you that whatever she is now will change in the next five years. She will either get better or worse. So, you see, you must wait for her.” “Christy I know you are a good woman and you fancy yourself so. But I bet you, Eka is light years ahead of you in this regard.” “I am glad to hear that my brother is not getting hooked up with a little witch. I will see you two this evening, save your credit Gerald.” “Thank you Christy.” The word ‘witch’ stabbed Dr. Gerry to the heart and left a heavy impression on his mind. He thought, “Should Christy have used that word?”
