So I am asking, will you do me the honor of being my wife?” With tears streaming down her face, she replied. “Yes, yes, I will Jilha.
I love you so much.” He slided the ring on her finger and embraced her. “I love you too princess.” They celebrated and moved to discuss the wedding plans.
Then Doctor Manuel said. “Emmy, Jofin, I think you two should go back to Arata(their village) and see your father.You should let go of the past completely by forgiving him.” Jofin shouted. “No way. That mad man? I will never forgive him.” He hissed angrily. “Jofin will you stop that?” Sophia rebuked him. Emerald sat by his side and held his hands.” Aunty is right Jo, it’s time to let go afterall, God has blessed us, please bro.” He sighed heavily. “Alright, let’s get this over with.”
Two days later, everyone including Jilha travelled to Arata village. When they got there, and they introduced themselves, people were amazed at what Emerald and her brother had accomplished. They took them to a small hut beside the village square. That is where their father was now staying. The once wealthy and well built man was gone replaced by a thin, frail man. He bursted into tears and started asking for forgiveness.
“Papa, we have forgiven you, even though mother, Jokai and Edama’s death still pained us, we forgive you.” Jofin also added. “All your fortunes is gone now, see what the witch you left us for turned you into.” They blessed him, embraced him and they left. They branched at the grave sites of Mabeline, Jokai and Edama before they left for Vast city. The day was a day to remember for them all.
