MY BLOOD MY HATER (EPISODE 4)
In an enormous sitting room, a man by name IKPA 62 is seen
sitting on the settee While his bodyguards
stand right behind him.
The Villagers are seen chanting and
laughing. Rita’s father IDIONG 60, comes out
smiling and waving his hands to everyone.
IDIONG: My in-laws you are all welcome to my house today.
Villagerman: Yes o. And we are so grateful to you for allowing us
to come into
your house without ill-treating us
(laughs) you know how badly some people have been treating us.
my people I greet you all, I deeply believe that some of you have
been informed of what today is all
about. (everyone laughs) yes yes, I know but let me duly bring it
to light why we have chosen to gather
here today with all of this.
I am here to marry Idiong’s beautiful
Please Idiong can you call her out?
Rita ima mi. Your husband is here to see you o.
(Rita comes out. In front of her, seven women are seen dancing,
singing and clapping their hands and
behind her four women are also seen doing precisely what the
women in the front are doing as they all
match into the sitting room)
under a big Idara tree. A girl by name ITORO 17, is seen moving
about the tree. Paul comes towards her
with a wheelbarrow filled with yam.
Paul, come here. why are you treating me like this, why do you
treat me like a trash, why?
Paul: (frown his face) Itoro look, are you okay?
Why you stopping me from going to where I am sent, if you think
I have anything to tell you, you’re wrong.
Come, didn’t your dad give you the message I gave to him.
Paul I want you. I have already told my dad that if I do not get
married to you, I will surely die. Do you want me to die?
Paul: You must be crazy.
(chuckles) you prostitute, after sleeping around with all the men
in this land, you think you could use
your devilish pretty face to poison my heart so as to accept the
proposal(laughs), if your dad knows what
is right for him, he should better marry you out to one of these
old men. Idiot, okay come, do you know
where slut like you are found? they are fo….
ITORO: (slaps him twice)
how dare you commoner?
How dare you say such dreadful thing about me? Look at you, do
you know who you are, do you know
whom your mother is, (chuckles) stupid you, each time you
passed by your mommy’s house without
going in to see her. I feel for you, each time you look at Uforo
and smiled lovely at her, I take pity on
you because you don’t know how related you two are.
Paul: (stops and turns his face to her, he moves closer to her)
What did you say? (he’s short of words by what Itoro told him)
Itoro: (laughs at him) Look at you.
You son of a liability prostitute. She taught me how to prostitute,
she took me to your father Eben and I laid with him just the same
way she had laid with him to produce a nonentity who does not
know anything about himself.my brother you are a meat. I lost
my womb because of her.(tears flow down) she showed me the
path to hell. And I dare say I am not the only girl in this, so many
girls in this land are destroyed, some dead because of her. She is
using us to earn a living by all…
Paul: (grabs her by the neck in anger) who is she?
Tell me who she is otherwise I’ll kill you right here.
Itoro: (struggling to breathe) Her n-a me is.
Her n a m(stammering)
Paul: Yes speak. Tell me who the devil you refer to as mother.
Speak am listening.
Itoro: She is Idara, Uforo’s aunt.
Lemme go, you are hurting me. Paul let me go.
(drops her down. He moves backward, staggering, and finally falls
down and sits on the ground. Tears encompass his eye. He puts
his hands on his head, looking pale and crazy)
Of all the women in this land, how could she be the one, why?
(stands up and moves closer to him. She bends down next to him
and keeps her hands on his knees)
my parents died when I was six, I never knew what to do as at
then to earn a living. I was very hungry, I ran to my uncle’s
house for food and shelter but he rejected me, he called me all
sorts of terrible names.. I left him crying, everyone who saw me
ran away from me..(tears flow down her ) I went to my aunty
who was at then your father’s wife. She spat on me and told me
to get lost. (looks into his eyes) what then was I supposed to do.
No one I knew saved my life rather they all rejected me. One
night I was crying when your mom saw me and picked me up.
She took care of me until I turned thirteen.(smiles) she started
sending me out with men.
At first I thought I was doing the right
thing not knowing she was using me to earn a living without the
knowledge of her husband, sir Itoro.
I have slept with your father
for more than six good times and he has been favoring me with
beautiful things. He catered so much for me, I thought I was
right.. I have aborted so many times and the last one almost took
my life, but God saved me.
Right now as am talking to you, my
womb is damaged.your mom promised to give me to you because
of that.(looks at him pitifully) I have regretted everything, right
now I don’t know what to do.. Paul I am very sorry. I am so sorry
(holds her together and cuddles her)
Itoro it’s okay.
I should be the one to say sorry to you. I had always hated you
each time I saw you. so how come about she being my biological
According to her, her father is an herbalist. So she ran away from
him to start up a new life here. She couldn’t make it since there
was certainly no one in this land to help her. So one day, she
came to your father for food and he gave it to her and told her to
come which she did go back. When she got there, your dad was
eating and he asked her to join him,she did without
hesitating(she smiles at him)
(smiles back at her)
Am still listening.
After eating, he took her home and raped her. She said, she
groaned and shouted but no one came..that’s all.
Why do I feel like she is lying..why do I perceive that there’s
something she isn’t telling you.
The right thing to do is to go home and ask your papa.. Figure it
out from him, I believe he will tell you everything.(stands up) I
have got to say goodbye to you now(helps him up) can we be
(pretending to be fine as he laughs)
Will it hurt you to know that I don’t like you.
(hits him on the chest and smiles )
You are so irksome I swear. You didn’t use to like me, but I used
to and am still liking you irrespective of how much you hate me.
I am so done pretending like I don’t like you… (moves closer to
him) I know you like me so much.
What and how do you mean?
(smiles at him)
I saw the look on your face when you cuddled me. I felt really
good and sweet when I was in your arms.. You see that( smiles
and hits him)
(laughs at her)
Women with their imaginations. Don’t be deceived I actually
hugged you because that precisely was the only thing I could do
at that particular moment so as to calm you down. And mind you
am fully aware of how Weak you girls can be. Try working on your
weaknesses. lets go home.
Uforo is seen washing her clothes and spreading them on a very
long rope and all of a sudden she hears her aunt and uncle
shouting and quarreling at each other.
I am so happy I slept with him, look at you if not that you
dropped out from school by now we would have been the first
people in this community to go the Abuja.
Look at lazy man, look at yourself, just look at you fool. Do you kno…..
(slaps the wife with his back hand)

a prostitute like you. A woman who has been luring young girls
into prostituting for money in orde..

how many girls I have used for money ritual in order for us to still

towards them and behind him is his wife chasing him with
pestle.having seen his wife coming, they all started to run to
different places to hide.)
Where is that killer that calls himself my husband.. Where is he?
