My mind as a teenager


episode 26


On Sunday evening,mum and dad asked me

to wait behind after dinner. We( Ella and I)

cleared the table and while she did the

dishes,I went to answer mum and dad.

Dad: Sit down.

I sat down adjacent to dad and opposite


Me: Thank you sir.

Dad: What difficulty are you finding in


It suddenly hit me. Ella had told them about

my desire to go to another school. I had to

cook up a lie but I didn’t have time.

Mum: Nne,what problem are you having in


Me: Mum,the food and my inability to make

good friends.

Dad: What are you saying? Five years in that

school and you don’t have a friend?

He wasn’t angry but I could sense the doubt.

Me: My best friend left after junior waec. We

became seniors and every girl wanted to be

in the best group of friends. I had to keep to


Through the corner of my eye,I saw dad nod

his head.

Dad: Your uncle tells me you are the prayer

Me: Thank you mum. Thank you dad.

Dad: And better be careful in that school. Its

no longer the school we used to know.

Mum: Daddy,she’s with Vivian so she is



That’s how close Vivian and I were. Her

people thinks am the best friend for her while

my people thinks same about her.

Did I fail to mention that this school was

where I had my primary education till primary

three? I think I didn’t. It was one of the best

schools then. After my primary three,mum

decided to enrol us into her friends’ school

so we left the school.

I stood up and thanked my parents one more

time before walking upstairs to our room. My

happiness made me forget that I was

supposed to check on my sister in the


It was when I heard her calling my name that

I recalled I was supposed to be with her.
