When i got to the river, there’s no single body there, the river was so claimed and lonely, it was only the humming of the birds that were going here and there and i became so scared.
“Nneoma why are you scared? You don’t have to be scared of anything said.
I went to inside the river and knelt down, I looked to the sky and shouted, “Eze Nwaanyi! The white goddess your daughter have come to see you” I cried out.
I waited for her presence but she did not showed up, “Eze Nwaanyi! I need your presence, I will not live here until you appear and see the heavy load am carrying since you have decided to keep silent on me so i have brought you my load to you, I don’t need it anymore” I cried out.
I waited again for her still kneeling down and within a short while she appeared to me with her white garment looking like a goddess she is, her blue eyes were sparkling like stars while her beautiful face was charming like a diamond.
I greeted her, “Eze Nwaanyi your daughter has come to return this heavy load to you since you kept silent on me so i decided to bring my load so that you will see how heavy it is, I don’t need it anymore” I cried out and said as if she is the one behind my predicament.
“My noble and faithful daughter cry no more and rise up and go” she said.
“No! Ooooh! Am not living until this burden is taking away from me” I cried out.
“Nneoma i said weep not for your hour has come, your cries has reached the spirit of mothers’ ears, they have seen your pains and suffering so cry no more for it is well with your household, your suffering has been taken away and that child inside your womb shall be great, the child will save this village and the great one shall be born today” she said.
My heart was filled with so much happiness, I don’t know what to do at that moment and the pains I was feeling inside my womb vanish immediately she said her word to me, I stood up and thanked her.
“Eze Nwaanyi I thank you so much for taking away this load from me, I shall forever be loyal and worship you until death knock on my door steps” I thanked her with tears of joy and she disappeared.
I made my way to the house with so much happiness written all over my face, if someone tells me that my suffering will soon come to an end i will definitely doubt that person, the people that i met when i was going was surprised to see me in a happy mood because they have not see me in a happy mood since I got pregnant.
“May the gods of our land be praise, I can’t wait to deliver this child” I said.

“The baby is coming out” she stood up and shouted with joy.
I stood and hugged her and gave her my word, “Obim put yourself together let me rush and get the mid wives” I said and ran out.
I ran faster as my legs can carry me with so much joy, the people that saw me were confused to see me running like someone who is being pursued by a ghost while some asked me the reason but i ignored them.
