Total Love Episode 66


The Queen’s phone started ringing. She neglected the call as she saw 12 o’clock on the phone, already weeping so much. This time, the hunters were coming out of the forest with Daniel and Darasimi. “These fools are already late!” She shouted as she hooted so that they’ll notice her presence and walk faster.
They all got into the car immediately they noticed her and rushed to the palace. The Queen was still sweating despite she’s in the atmosphere of air conditioner. The Princess called her again. She picked it, “he’s dead right? I’m dead!!” She exclaimed and ended the call.
“Can’t you run, is the car telling you not to press the throttle?” She scolded the driver.
They finally got to the palace. The palace gates were wide open. No one was outside, the Queen couldn’t contain it any longer, she jumped out of the car.
She met the guards in the living room and maids, all happy wining and dining. “Are you all mad!” She shouted and rushed upstairs.
She got to the front of the King’s door and met Tony standing. She freezed, and shivering. “You can go in.” She pointed.
The Queen rushed into the room and met the King seated. She stood in front of him with surprise all over her. Tony walked inside the room also.
“Raymond.” She called stretching her hand forward.
Daniel had rushed upstairs too, at the front of the King’s room.
The King was staring at the Queen and was smiling continuously.
“How are you now?” She asked as she quickly sat beside him.
The King demonstrated that he couldn’t talk. Tony cleared his voice so that his presence will be felt. “Let’s go to the living room your highness.” He uttered, staring at the Queen.
They walked to the palace. The King couldn’t talk. Daniel dodged on noticing them coming out. He was still surprised and didn’t understand all what was going on. He walked into the King’s room and looked around. He saw his mouth organ on the table there, he picked it and dashed downstairs.
He stood by the dining and peeping. The Queen was shouting at the guards then. “What’s the celebration about, can the King talk!” She kept shouting.
Everyone kept quiet right away. The Queen was addressing them and still tilting her head to see Tony. “What is he doing here. How come? What happened?” She kept asking.
The pastors came inside the palace from outside. They’ve been discussing and praying for the King. “The mouth organ.” Tomi’s pastor uttered.
He came to “HIS GRACE” hospital and told them that for Tony to get well, he must also make sure he sees his twin brother. Although, they were all surprised about who the twin brother is, until the pastor told them its the King.
The guards were looking at one another. “Wahala dey for palace today oh, wich one be mouth organ again bayi in this matter.”
The Queen was staring at the pastor as a new face. Daniel came out from the dining and walked to the living room with his bloody and tattered cloth. He stood in between everyone and showed the mouth organ.
“Who is Daniel?” The Pastor asked again.
Everyone kept staring at the pastor. No one understood them.
The Queen pointed to Daniel and he started playing his “magic mouth organ”. As he was playing, everything was changing, the King’s health started turning around, till everything changed and everyone took their rest.
The next morning…
Tony was in a hurry to leave for the city because of his wife but was delayed. Winnie was with her through out the night. The pastors didn’t allow it, they said they must settle everything at once.
Funke and Gloria rushed to the palace on hearing Daniel and Darasimi are back. They were allowed into the palace this time and they barged in.
David was also on his way to the palace to plead with the King to get him his wife and children and he has repented. He was also present in the palace that morning as Omitola was also invited to come.
The issue started.
“You were there when the delivery took place ma. Is it true the King and Tony are twins?” The pastor asked her.
“Yes.. They are.”
Everyone became quiet and surprised. The King himself filled with surprise, looking at Tony, while Tony was also staring at him, smiling.
“It was planned years back, when the Queen wanted to give birth that Tony will be given to the Queen’s friend and demonstrated that way so that they won’t be killed.” She explained.
Raymond sighed.
“Everyone thinks I’m dead, but you’re all wrong…” Tony said.
“Y.. Yea… At this junction I’ll confess.” Damilola said sadly.
“Confess?” Ruth stared at her.
“Yes.. I was the one that sent the hired killers to kill him so that he won’t disturb me about the pregnancy I was carrying then.” She explained.
“Preg what?” The King repeated and was looking at her.
“Yes. T.. Tony I…is.. Ruth’s father.” She stammered out.
“Huh?” Ruth stood up at once. Daniel was smiling where he was. “See princess.” He thought.
“You don’t mean this!” The King shouted.
“I also tried to kill Gloria and Funke, but weren’t found. Since then, they’ve not entered this kingdom.” She uttered.
“You this woman!” Raymond shouted.
“I’m sorry.” She started crying.
“So I’m an empty barrel without a successor.” The King’s eyes turned red and he rested his back.
“You have a successor!” Funke and Gloria walked in, they’ve been by the door since.
“This is serious!” Daniel laughed from his seat. Daniel and Darasimi rushed to their mothers and hugged them happily.
“A successor?” The King repeated staring at their faces. “Funke! Gloria!” He shouted and stood up, the Queen and Tony also stood up.
“What’s happening?” The King was looking around.
“Darasimi is your daughter.” Funke said.
“Darasimi?” The King stared.
