Chapter 1

It's crazy how life begins with a cry

That stormy afternoon four cries were heard in the clinic, the Yera family were welcoming four children to the world, two identical and two fraternal, they looked so lovely and cute. Days became weeks and it was time for the naming ceremony, it wasn't easy taking care of them although it was still a thing of joy for them, many families in the storm city gathered to see the kids, who wouldn't when it was viewed as a prodigy birth because it hadn't been heard of before ; The two identical girls where Jada the first Quadri and Freda the second quadri-, the only boy was named Ceda the third quadri- and the fraternal girl named Mara, even though Mara was fraternal that did not stop her from being beautiful, with her long Curly brown hair, Soft and fragrant to Soothe her little Choco skinned face. The children had their various beautiful and handsome features which people admired, everyone were in anticipation to see their life journey for they believed it would be filled with wonder, the naming ceremony was filled with alot of extravagant decorations, tasteful dishes, expensive gifts for the quadri and happy faces.

The people took their turns in carrying the babies, some were even unwilling to part with them so they just stayed beside the next person who was to carry them but Mara burst out in tears soon, it was okay if 5 or 6 people carried her but not more she really didn't like it so she kept crying till her father came to carry her away

"you will be really clingy in the future won't you Mara?" He said while carrying her to the garden to take in a fresh breeze and she just giggled cheekily making him to laugh handsomely, he has really found his hand bag. 

Later in the evening the occasion came to an end and the guests slowly dispersed leaving the Yera couple behind with the children and other occupants in the house.

Nema Yera their mother a very beautiful, loving and caring lady and Malik Yera their father was known to be handsome and even till date age did not hide that fact, the Yera family were known not only for their wealth but also for their Kindness, discipline and courage which is an honourable reputation.

The quadri soon started to grow as the years ran by quickly and before the blink of an eye five years had gone, the Yeras decided to celebrate the fifth birthday of the quadri- and sent out invitations to both the storm city dwellers and their business partners, Jada and Ceda were already able to talk fluently so they were so much branded the noisy ones because they made alot of noise during the celebration and also interacted more with the other kids compared to Freda and Mara who were still not able to pronounce certain words 

Mara preferred to cling to her daddy because she knows daddy will always carry her and loves her the most while Freda preferred to watch television cause she knows that it would be more fun than conversing with other kids that might just give her a headache trying to repeat herself so they could understand what she is saying, she knows her speech is not polished enough so why bother.

The celebration was grand with alot of influential families coming to celebrate with them, each family got a gift befitting for each of the quadri and soon enough the gift space was filled up, Jada couldn't wait to tear open the gift boxes she really loved surprises but she had to behave and hold the eagerness in, it was a tough action for Jada but she promised to try.

During the Celebration the prestigious family of Gowa graced the occasion with their presence, the family of Gowa were known for their wealth, strictness and loyalty. 

They were blessed with two beautiful daughters and a handsome son, all the children went ahead to the playroom to play leaving the living room for the adults, although exclusive of Mara who chose to remain in daddy's arms quietly, in the playroom filled with lots of toys Ikiris Gowa and Ceda Yera decided to fight over a particular black ball, they both wanted it and none of the boys were ready to relent, in the struggle process Ikiris slipped and almost fell to hit his head on the edge of the tiles but luckily Mara was able to pull him to fall on her towards the other side causing her to graze her elbow in the process, when Mara saw she was bleeding she cried out loudly, this really scared her.

The mothers who were catching up on the latest news about themselves heard the cry from the playroom and rushed to see what happened, Nema who saw Ikiris on top of the bleeding Mara got a little upset and separated the two in order to lift Mara up, she brought out the first aid kit and cleaned the wound up immediately thankfully it wasn't deep to leave a mark or need stitching

Sasha Gowa questioned her son about what happened "Ikiris son tell me what happened here hmm?"

"Ceda did not let the ball go" Ikiris responded pointing his finger towards Ceda

"that's not true, it's your fault besides it is my ball" Ceda wouldn't back down and argued back

"that's enough Ceda, you should learn to share somethings, look now your sister got injured in the process" Nema felt tired hearing the two boys argue relentlessly which made her realise it was a little blameless accident because they were all children

Sasha still wanted to thank Mara for the save so she went closer to her "darling, thank you they are both still so childish" she said mostly looking at her son with a little warning in her eyes then continued

"sorry, you got hurt in the process" she examined the elbow injury.

'This wouldn't do' she thought to herself, she was really grateful and to show her gratitude she gifted Mara with 5% of the Gowa shares

"since she saved my son's life just now I'll like to repay her selfless sacrifice so I want to give her 5% of the Gowa shares" she said to Nema while petting Mara's hair sweetly, the little girl looks really beautiful

Nema did not see it as something necessary since her son was partially the cause and this was their occasion "its just a childish instinct it is no big deal for you to feel so emotional about it"

but Sasha already made up her mind anyway and said "if Malik and Justin had not decided to go to the study to discuss some matters leaving Mara in the playroom the injury Ikiris would have sustained wouldn't be minor, do you know what would have happened to him? He might as well become a dummy" that thought really scared her.

He is her only son and heir to the Gowa group so she really couldn't imagine the disaster of loosing him.

Nema couldn't convince her so she left the matter and turned to Mara "how is it now baby?" She asked mimicking Mara's voice

"it okay mama, Mara a big girl" she said sweetly while blinking her pretty doll eyes, she had alot more resemblance to her husband compared to the other 3, Nema kissed the banded elbow and put her back on the floor

Mara did not want to stay in the playroom anymore and went to stay with Freda

"Freda look Mara hurt" she tells Freda

"what happen to you Mara?" She pulls Mara's elbow out to inspect it then blew some air on it, this action tickled Mara causing her to laugh but Freda did not know what caused her laughter and wondered if she also had a head injury maybe 'I'll ask mama later' she thinks to herself then hugs Mara to lean on her while they both continue watching the television

The birthday celebration came to an end late in the night but a new friendship began with the 3 years old Bali Gowa, who is the third child of the Gowas and Jada, Freda was reluctant to part from the television but she had to come out with Mara to bid the guests good bye to show their respect but not without gazing at Ikiris, she had already found out what happened when Mara told her, she knew her sister saved the boy but that might have might affected her too seeing the way she laughed earlier for no good reason, she really hopes her sister wasn't injured in her head.

The maids washed the quadri and Nema put the three to sleep, when she got to Freda's room

"mama is Mara okay?" Freda asked with her cute little voice and her eyes showing a little worry

"of course she is" Nema wasn't surprised with the question since Mara's bandaged elbow was very visible

"what about her head?" Freda asked again, she watched some shows in the television when they hit their head start behaving funny

Chapter 2

"why did you ask baby?" Nema found it funny, Freda just stared at her so she replied "her head is fine too so go to bed okay" she says and kisses Freda goodnight and left the room. Freda decided to believe her mother's words and slept off.

Mara was put to sleep by her father but not without a little sulking

Malik had to pamper his Mara "why are you still sulking baby?"

Mara replied in her cute babyish voice with her eyes having little tears "dada leave me and Mara hurt really bad"

Nema couldn't control her laugh from the door "you really want my husband to be with you all the time don't you"

Mara said while pouting her caramel lips and pointing to her banded elbow "dada my angel, leave Mara for little and Mara hurt" then she looked at Malik and stretched out her baby arms for a hug "cuddle cuddle"

Malik obliged and gave his wife a pitiful look as if saying 'w
