LOVE BY A BEAST
EPISODE 33 (FINALE)
Students woke up to the news of two heads on a piece of white cloth in front of Mini-campus. They snapped the heads and s£nt it to one another. The guys in the house hvgged me, every one of them. They started treating me like I was their mother..Uche had told me that It would mean a lot to them if I remained in Jafar’s room, they would fix the Benz for me and all. It was a no [email protected]…I accepted.
Toun [email protected]£ back to school on Sunday, and after briefing her on all the happenings, she settled in with me in Jafar’s room. School resumed a month later, but alre-ady we could tell that things had changed.
People murmured when we pas-sed by, they called us the “Black Widows”. Even the so- called bad guys in school never trespas-sed. I never wore any other color besides black. In my heart, I would mourn Jafar till I die.
I had made my peace with God, I didn’t care too much about humans.
Like I said earlier, nothing was the same; I saw the world in a new light. Jafar had opened my eyes to things that I would never have un-derstood. Even my parents said I sounded different on the phone…they didn’t know I was not their baby anymore.
Some days to my exams, I decided to go buy a pregnancy str!p.., I had been late for two-months. As I peed on it, Toun stood infront of the bathroom…
Toun: do you want to be pregnant?
Me: what do you think?
Toun: tell me jor..
Me: ofcuz, it will mean everything to me if I could have Jafar’s child…God!
Toun: I hope so too, we would be the best mothers…
After peeing, I was too scared to check myself, so I gave Toun…
She was quiet as she stared at the str!p. She nodded sadly…I felt disappointed, I really wanted his kid. I didn’t care what my parents, siblings or nosy neighbors and students would say..Jafar was all that mattered.
Me: I am not pregnant?
Then she bur-st out laughing and started screaming around the house…
Toun: You are pregnant Tana…two str!ps…you are pregnant…
I was so happy, I started crying…
That night, I drove to the circular patch, where the fireflies converge…I switched off the lights of the car…
Me: Jafar, I know you can hear me…I feel it…thank you for not leaving me. I will take care of our baby…The baby will know all there is to know about how much of a wonderful dad you are…
Jafar…I love you.
Thanks for re-ading this piece, you guys kept me awake at night…I hope some of you liked it
I am not an advocate of Cultism, as a writer I choose to write about stuff that happen and can happen..
