The Sisters
They came hungry and thirsty and found Mbachu munching her foo-foo and meat soup uninviting and they greeted her;
“Elder sister we have come and we are hungry.”

Mbachu
    “I am not your sister and never call me your sister or I’ll behead you and as for food I have no food for you.”

Singian
“But this is wickedness how can we be punished in our father’ house through starvation?”
They went to the kitchen and scrapped the rice pot and rubbed it into the empty sauce pot and ate then drank plenty of water to fill up their stomach.

Mama T
She came but the children dared not make any complain then she ordered them do the household chores without complain but she asked about the proceeds;
“How much did you sell today?”

Singian
“I sold all amounting D300.”

Steph Ken
   “I sold all amounting to D500.”

Mama T
“It is not bad D800 but still it’s a long way to pay Mbachu’ uniform then pay your fees.”

Mbachu
    “Mom! Can you give me some money to buy ice cream?”

Mama T
   “How much are you talking about?”

Mbachu
“At least D300 will be okay.”

Mama T
“I’ll give you D500 would that be okay?”

Mbachu
She rushed and hugged her mom;
“There is no mom in the world like you I love you mom.”

Mama T
“I love you my daughter.”

Mbachu and her Friend
Mbachu and Horejah Gas are school mates and friends since their nursery days as they lived in the same estate now they attend the same private High School Mbachu asked Gas to keep some money she stole from her mom.

Gas
“I’ll keep it safely for you and whenever you need it, it would be made available to you.”`

Mbachu
“Thank you very much you are my best pal.”

Gas
“One thing puzzled me why do you hate your siblings so much?”

Mbachu
She went into tantrums;
“Don’t call them my siblings they are not I hate them they’ve come to occupy my space that’ all.”

Gas
“But they are beautiful girls inside out and I see them treating you with respect please learn to love them and whether you like it or not they share the same blood with you.”

Mbachu
“You have overstayed your welcome go away you cannot lecture me on relationships.”

Gas
“Okay suit yourself.”

Mbachu
She stole the envelop of her mom money sent by her dad for their upkeep.

Mama T
She came and found her money missing and she confronted her daughter;
“Mbachu! Have you started stealing from your mom? I am going out but would be back get ready for me because you are the only one who can get into my room which is well secluded.”

Mbachu
“How can you accuse your only child? Have I ever stolen from you or am I the only occupant of this house?”

Mama T
“We shall determine that when am back.”

The Conspiracy
Mbachu went to her innocent siblings and coaxed them to help her;
“You are right I am a bad sister you have own your embrace but I refuse you and you are my siblings whether I like it or not as my friend Gas advi.e me; I need your help.”

Steph Ken
“What type of help can we give you?”

Mbachu
“Keep the envelop for me it until I’ll come for it tomorrow.”

Singian
“What is there? We should know what we are keeping.”

Steph Ken
Before Mbachu could explain she shut her up;
“It does not matter sister Mbachu cannot give us what is of harmful nature.”

Mbachu
“Thank you very much for having trust in me I’ll ensure your food is always available what are sisters for and I’ll never forget your gesture of friendship.”

Sisters Alone
“You are very naïve Steph what is in the envelop I hope there will be no trouble tomorrow? I for once do not trust Mbachu and Mama T they hat us with passion.”

Steph Ken
“Give peace a chance Singian the other time she allow us eat her left over now if wee refuse her request she will return to her tactic of molesting us at least if one of them act civil our burden will lessen.”

Singian
“As for me they are all the same the side of the same coin I only hope we have taken the right decision but at least we should have enquire what is in the envelop.”

Steph Ken
“It is okay my sister let you be optimistic for once.”

The Outcome
Mama T came in anger and went and searched everywhere inside her room and did not see anything.

Mbachu
“Did you see your envelope? Am I your culprit now? I am very ashamed how can you accused your only daughter of theft? How can I steal from you when I lack nothing?”

Mama T
She came to the girls’ room with Mbachu and asked them to bring out their luggage which they did.
She searched their luggage and did not find anything she proceeded to the cupboard and found it under their dresses then she went into tantrums;
She showed it to them;
“The envelope has legs and has ran into your cupboard eh what do you have to say?”

The girls were dumbfounded;
“We didn’t take it Mbachu gave it to us for keep she stole it from you.” Singian defended their honour and dignity.

Mbachu
“It a lie I didn’t give them anything to keep what relation do I have with them?”

Steph Ken
“How did we get your key? Have we ever come to your room on our own volition? We were deceived by Mbachu she brought the envelope and coaxed us to keep it for her and it was never opened to know what was there.”

Mama T
“You are deceivers, cheats and liars I’ll teach you the lesson of our life.” She laid them on a table and gave them good beating and starved them for three days.
