The woman Abah was a devil incarnate. She would always beat Ike her step son to a pulb! Afam wasting no time in re- marrying when Ike’s mother died. It was really unfortunate as Abah was wicked and dangerous. One night after beating the poor boy,she chased him away, only for him to meet an old man who stopped him and prayed for him. He gave him a white stone and told him that the king would come for it. Not too long, an announcement went round that the king needed a white stone. Ike quickly took the stone to the king. It was exactly the type that the king wanted. So he was very happy and rewarded Ike handsomely. He even guaranteed of seeing him through to the university and automatic employment on graduation. That was how the beating stopped as Ike became a very important personality-V I P.
