(Life)"But I am just coming back from her house now. I also waited for her for a long." "She was the one that pounded this 'acha.' She insisted that I had no option but to let her pound it. She is such an indomitable." His mother said. What a coincidence! He was waiting for her in her house while she was in his house. She must have passed through Jovita's house, he thought.

"She is nice; I like her," his mum said, turning the mortar upside down. Johnson looked at his mum, smiling as she carried the pestle to the right position. He wished she could repeat what she said. She carried the 'acha' and said, leaving him there, "Why not marry her?" Johnson was speechless. He couldn't say a word. He turned and bounced to his room. He felt bad that he couldn't call her as he said he would. "But it was my phone that went off before I could reach home; when I charged, I could not reach her." He thought.

Jane reached home and met her mum in the kitchen. Her heartbeat. Her mother has started cooking. "Mummy, what are you doing? Did I say I will not cook?" "I didn't say so. Johnson just left." "ehh?" "Yes, where did you go to? He waited for you since," "But I am coming from his house, mummy," "Are you sure?" "Yes, now, you think I'll lie to you?" "How come you didn't meet?" Her mother opened the pot and covered it.

"Mummy! When did you come back home that you peeled these potatoes enough for the family?" Her mother smiled, "your representative." "my.." "Yes. He peeled all the potatoes except for the few that I had started before he came." "Really? Wow!" "I enjoyed the time he spent here. He is such a nice young man with sound knowledge of the scriptures. We drag drag drag, but he insisted till I gave him the knife, and he peeled in a second."

Jane was speechless. She told her mother to go and rest, so she finished the cooking. She started singing in her mind, "speechless… speechless… that's how you make me feel…."
