I looked at her and wondered why everybody liked her.
It all started when Uwa’s belly started getting bigger. Baba and Uwa said I’d have a baby sister. I was happy.
After her birth, Baba and Uwa were delighted. They called her Halima.
But everything changed after that. Baba and Uwa didn’t like me again.
They stopped feeding, bathing and dressing me. Baba didn’t even give me his Kunu Aya again. He gave only Halima.
This morning, I saw Halima crawling to the well. I opened the cover and she fell inside.
Baba and Uwa will like me again.
