” welcome honey, would have called you but my phone has been hanging all day just sent for a new one, how was your day did you secure the contract
” i lost this contract worth millions, millions
” no problem your construction industry is still in charge of so many federal constructions loosing one is not a big deal, but I thought you already had this covered .
” Mr Isaac has been doing everything possible to be awarded the contract now Gretel has helped him push me Down haven’t you seen the news Mr president called me and told me to leave the contract to Isaac since I would be too busy training my child and managing my home imagine that
” I don’t understand our home is under control
” but your daughter is not
He handed over his phone to her with the pictures
” I can’t believe this what if this picture was photoshopped or anything
” I hope so for your daughters sake
He called one of the maids who went upstairs to Gretels room and knocked
” who is it
She opens the door
” good evening
” you knocked wrongly you should only knock once and wait do you know how much It took me to redesign this door to my taste?!!, infact you shouldnt touch my door with your bare hands anymore and inform other maids too am the only one allowed to touch my door you guys might get me infected.
” how do we call you ma, should we Use the bell
” you would infect that too listen carefully when you get to the door you say” I need your presence beautiful Gretel”, repeat
“I need your presence Gretel “.
‘ am I ugly ?
“whatever y are you here

He drags Gretel into the compound and went down to the
6th building in the big estate Mrs hoffman followed him
he unlocked the door and pushed Gretel inside
” but no one is here dad
” good so u have enough time to think about your life the maids would bring your food
“honey you can’t lock Gretel here this place is too lonely
“its time we started training this girl
Gretel dragged her mothers hand
” mum please I can’t stay here”, she starts crying
Mr Hoffman pushed her inside and locked the door Gretel still called out to her mother from the window when the couple got inside Mrs hoffman was so furious but she knew her husband had a dangerous temper
“I know you are angry but you can’t make rash decisions in anger
“I need a shower
“how can you shower when you locked Gretel into a big duplex where no one has been in for years and she is not even with her phone or laptop
” I am trying to train that girl
” what did she do even if the picture was real and so what? isn’t she a teenager can’t she have a boyfriend didn’t I have a boyfriend didn’t you have a girlfriend you didn’t even let her explain herself what kind of a father are you
” ciara you will mind how you talk to me i am still in charge and my word is law
” I know the man I married you are not mad about Gretels immorality you are just angry that you lost the contract to someone your pride has realy gotten the best of you
” I am here trying to train that little child of yours how can a 17 year old girl create a sex scandal
” its not a sex scandal its a picture of her and her friend and I find nothing wrong
” gretel will sleep there and that’s final
” I respect all your policies I avoid the press because you think i might say the wrong stuff, I still stay home and maintain the position of a house wife with all my certificates you don’t involve me in your financial decisions you always place you business first I don’t complain but if you think I will keep quiet and watch my daughter sufer you must be kidding
” ok you are free to open the door
He walked into the compound and dropped the key into the swimming pool
” I have a spare key when I realize that Gretel has learnt her lesson I will open the door. I will still ensure that she is fed very well and that’s final
He walked upstairs into his room Mrs hoffman ran over to the house where she called Gretel from the window and Gretel oppened the lowest window where she saw her mom standing her mother took her hands
” mum you don’t understand am scared I can’t stay here the lights are shaking

The speaker turned to the audience
simeon here promised us some evidence to back
up his claims about the scandal
That’s what this life show is all about as all the

Celine and the Hoffman’s.
Chidinma Jerry. m.
The interviewer continued.
” good day madam”.
“good day “.
“what can you tell us about Gretel Hoffman “.
” I don’t know who that is.
She showed her a picture of Gretel
“ooh the pretty girl who came on the rainy day”.
S” how long has she been visiting”.
” I ave never seen her it was only on that day in fact
I was the one who gave her the towel she tied while
the maids washed her uniform”.
The speaker turns to the audience
so now someone should join me to wonder what
kind of lover or sex partner or girlfriend never visits
Some of us may ask y didn’t Gretel go home
The driver is here to clear that
“good day sir
” good day
” pls tell us why you didn’t you take Gretel home
” I called Gretel on phone when I heard of my sons
accident she told me to go that she would call me
“in my haste I forgot my phone in the car and ran
into the hospital and that should be when Gretel
” so by what time did you enter the hospital

” the rain was heavy Gretel was realy soiled and
there was no sign of her driver coming so I had to
help her it was by 2:30
” thank you
The speaker turns to the audience
Now the story is easily narrated
Gretels driver left to visit his sick son in the
hospital and he forgot his phone in the car though
he took permission from gretel and she promised to
call him when she needed his services, when Gretel
called her driver He didn’t pick up she waited for
him outside till the heavy rain started when she tried
runing back into the school compound the gate was
locked few minutes later SIMEon arrived and took
Gretel to his house his maid handed her a towel as
they washed her cloths simeon being a nice guy
lended his “girlfriends” cloth to gretel which she
wore and waited for her driver who came and
picked her immiediately after he saw the call
pls what is so wrong in this scene I believe that
next time before we nail someone we should be
sure of what we are saying
lastly I will refer to the blogger who started this
” what do you have to say
” am sorry Gretel am sorry to the Hoffman’s family I
wasn’t sure of what I saw and I spoilt an innocent
girls reputation please forgive me

bar where he drank very strong alcoholic drink.
Simeon arrived home where he met his Head maid
who handed him his drug.
” simeon I think you should tell your father about
your condition my dear”.
” I don’t want to, actually when I found out I was
sick I was happy at least its a deadly disease which
can kill me and reunite me with mum
I knew dad will find out about the illness if I lived
with him that’s why I came back here I never took
any of the drugs prescribed to me I just waited for
death to come, am still waiting
” simeon !!!!?.
” but I met someone, gretel Hoffman , She makes
me want to live so that’s why I started taking those
drugs if I don’t die I would like to live so I can be
with that person….
” then you have to call your father so your treatment
can be taken serious”.
” ahhhhh its pointless, what’s the point, gretel might
not love me back right, so who Will I live for.
” you can never realy tell simeon.
” you promised not to inform dad right I hope you
keep your word I don’t want to involve him in this,
he has an empire to take care of.
“as you wish”, the maid said ….

Just as Danny let go off Celine she tried running off
again this time Danny caught her and carried her up
he covered Celines gown well and walked further
” hey ,let go !!!!!’, celine shouted “I won’t let you

Celine kicked her leg up and down she even

was busy checking the price tags
Soon a particular gown caught Danny’s eye it was
red and pretty

Celine took the cloth from him and instantly
checked the price 70, 000
Celine shouted “what!!!! “…

Celine and the Hoffman’s.
Chidinma Jerry. m.
Danny knocked once and opened the door….
He looked around the room
, her bra ,her pant , her hair net ,condom packs , his
belt, his shirt, his Jean ,his singlet ..the living room
was so littered ..Danny felt disgusted He wanted to
leave but he also wanted to confirm if it was really
Jennifer or her friend.
Before he could take one step forward.
Jennifer walked out..she wrapped a white bedsheet
round her chest…the sight of Danny of killed
her..her worst fear came to pass..she got caught.
Tears streamed down her eye..just then Kelvin
walked out too…
Danny looked at him from hair to toe…. he dropped
the flower for Jennifer on the couch and walked
away..Jennifer chased after him and dragged him
” no danny stop , danny don’t turn your back on me
..you promised me..
” why , wasn’t I good enough , did I do something
wrong…jennifer tell me why ?.
” Danny am sorry , its my fault , I can explain.
” just answer me , ..was …was this the first
Jennifer couldn’t talk tears just kept streaming
” then maybe the second….”, danny asked wiping
his tears ..
Jennifer still couldn’t talk.
Danny placed his hands on his fore head for a
” it’s over , we are done.
” no danny please
” stay away .. from me …forever.
He rushed out Jennifer rushed after him.
Crying and begging.it didn’t make a difference.
Danny stormed into his car and his driver took him
He looked up and dried his tears.
Minutes later Danny arrived at his house he walked
into the living room where his mother sat
He hugged his mother
“I missed you how are you you look weak
“and you even slimmed down
“no no I didn’t mum
” welcome my love
“where is Mr Hoffman
“he’s not yet back but he should be
“what about gretel

“how have you been

Danny walked upstairs to his room and Gretel ran
“so how was your trip
“some annoying girl stood me up
“why are you so bothered do you like her

everything she does is troublesome
” so did you meet Jennifer yet
“your girlfriend Jennifer
” my ex
” ask me no question and I will tell you no lies
She ran down back to her room
Danny went upstairs ….he dropped his stuffs and
walked into the shower.
Pictures of Jennifer’s room just filled his mind..he
lighted a stick of cigarette and sat on the floor.
” must all women be sluts…I can’t believe
Jennifer…. she hurt me badly….just when I decided
to finally give this love another chance….it dropped
me again….I know i was busy but I still tried my
best to be with her…I wonder when the affair
started …. this love was really never meant for
me…it’s an exam I keep failing …
Soon Danny’s room was filled with enough smoke it
could burn down the room..Gretel knew her brother
Gretel was in the compound she wore a pink gown
with a pink scarf on her hair and she carried a pink
school bag she ordered the maids around on what
to bring from inside as she didn’t pack yesterday

where she stood
” is it just a school trip or are you leaving forever

” I will
Just then Jennifer walked into the compound she
rushed over to Danny and took his hands
” Danny pls can we talk
” I don’t feel like talking”, he turned to Gretel ” don’t

He tried walking into the building but Jennifer ran

Celine stood up..
Mrs Mira and the children were still on the way but
this Time they were close to the place they headed
The students chatted from behind and their noise
kept getting louder
( Dialogue )
Gretel : can this journey get any longer
KeilA : we are almost there
Susan : KeilA were you already nominated as one of
the finalists for the nationals
KeilA : not yet Mrs wills has not chosen yet
Gretel : don’t worry you will be one of them its 3
students from each school
KeilA : yea i hope so this means more to me now
Laura : I think Anna is competing in the nationals
Kira : that’s not new I mean Anna always represents
her school in the competition she is their main
hope sometimes her school only nominates her
without any back up but Gretel has beat her like 5
times if am counting well
Tania : this competition is gonna be hot kimoni will
be there as well as kariana
SIMEON : yea and the dancers have their own stage
its built with glass you can’t leave till you are out of
Gretel : thats nice but kariana is in a wheel chair
how is she coming
Susan : guess who queens high nominated as their
Tina : Matilda Jones I mean she beat Gretel twice
she has 12 gold medals and she got a contract
with a dance company in france if it’s not her who
else she, did Tatianas dance in the open ballet
Gretel : yea we know her
KeilA : but Tatianas dance is hard I mean its
impossible for me
Susan : yea it kinda is
KeilA : I think am dropping out
Tina : but why
KeilA : I can’t win can’t you see Anna James,
Matilda Jones, who knows who universal high would
nominate or even Julianas ballet school only five
schools are competing but they have they best
dancers and I don’t think prestigious high can
depend on me
Gretel : you are a great dancer KeilA I don’t know
why you see yourself lesser some dancers can’t
even do any one of the five award winning dances
created by the best dancers in history but you can,
you learnt your mother’s dance didn’t you
Laura : the five mystical dances ave head of them
but I don’t know about them
Gretel : back in the days the five best ballerinas
where asked to make their own music and dance
from any short story of the past
Kira: yes and kariana being the the number one
picked up a historical dance which was created by
Amanda linory she took the story and learnt the
dance She made it more beautiful it was known as
Laura : wow
KeilA : but the dance has been banned and rated
Laura : why
Keila: it has 3 most difficult steps people only
learnt the choreography “when Kariana met the
Prince” because it is easier but the solo is hard
because of 3 dangerous ballet steps a grand jete, a
grand adage, and a triple back spin ending with an
Laura : scary
Susan : simeon knows the choreography well he did
it in his junior high with Anna James the video went
SIMEON : that was then
Laura : teach me teach Me pls
SIMEON : you have to be a professional dancer to
Laura : realy then everyyhing about karianas dance
Gretel : yea the first student who did it landed in
coma as she hit her head on a rock the next died
while Mrs kariana is in a wheel chair
Laura : what about kimonis dance
KeilA : that dance has an impossible en pointe its
been said that kimonis dance can be done only by
Gretel : Anna James has been learning that dance
since she was 14 if she finally nails it and does it
