Bayan ya fito dashi kuma ina so ya bashi aikin yi, saboda nasan with that reputation babu ma’aikatar da zasu dauki Saghir aiki ballantana ya samu abinda zai rike yayansa”. Mama tace “anya kuwa Diyam wadannan sharadan naki basuyi tsauri ba? Wane ne zai je neman auren mace kuma tace masa sai ya fito da tsohon mijinta daga prison kuma ya bashi aiki?

Ni dai abinda na sani shine zuciyar Sadauki tayi tauri da yawa, ya kasa yafewa wadanda yake ganin sun cutar dani da shi. Kuma nasan  gurin Sadauki Saghir yafi kowa baƙi, shi yasa nake so ya yafe masa kuma ya taimaka masa. Nasan in dai har ya iya yafewa Saghir to babu wanda ba zai yafewa ba, in dai har ya taimaka wa Saghir to babu wanda ba zai taimaka wa ba”.

Mama tayi shiru tana kallona sannan tace “zuciyarsa tana da tauri tabbas, ke ai kinsan haka tun kuna yara haka yake kuma sai rayuwa ta kara taurara shi. To ni a shawara ta ba juya masa baya zaki yi ba jawo shi kijinki zakiyi. Ki nuna masa irin son da kike masa ki bashi dama ya nuna miki nasa, to shi kansa ba zai san sanda zuciyar tasa zata rissina ba, abinda zaiyi ke kanki sai ya baki mamaki”.

Amma ai ba yanzu ne ka fara tsoran nawa ba dama ka dade kana yi” sai yayi dariya, and I couldn’t remember the last time da yayi dariya irin haka. Nima sai nayi murmushi. Yace “ina waje, Please kar kice da Mama ni nazo dan kunyarta nake ji”  na tashi na shiga dakin Mama zan mata sallama tace “da daren nan” sai na sunkuyar da kaina nace “Sadauki ne yazo zamu tafi tare” tace “kuma babu gaisuwa?

Hausawa sunyi karin magana suka ce kishi kumallon mata, amma ke naki kishin aman gaskiya yake saka ki. Daga jin muna magana da Inna sai ki kama amai?” Na gane maganar da yake yi nayi saurin cewa “ba fa abinda kake tunani bane ba, bani da lafiya dama a lokacin. To ni ina ma ruwa na da aurenka” yace “okay idan rashin lafiya ta saki amai ita ce kuma ta saka daga nayi miki sannu kika rufe ni da fada?” Nace “kaga nifa bana son ake juya min magana ta” yace “shikenan, an daina” muka cigaba da tafiya sannan yace “na bata labarin ki.

Zuciyata da ƙwaƙwalwa ta suka cigaba da battle dinsa ni kuma na zama confused dan bansan wanne daga cikin su zan bi ba. My heart was telling me in kira Sadauki a waya, in bude masa zuciyata in gaya masa irin zurfin da soyayyar sa tayi a ruhina, while my mind was asking me to hold on, reminding me cewa ba lallai ne in Sadauki ya samu abinda yake so ni kuma ya bani abinda nake so ba.

Har gida har daki za’a zo aci mutuncin ta ba tare data yi laifin komai ba and she will always looked at me and said “kar kayi magana, kar kace komai” and I will keep quiet.
