My mind as a teenager
He slapped me and dragged me to a building.
He held my arm strongly and it hurt. I winced
in pain but he would have none of it.
Frank: You don’t talk to Frank anyhow you
want. Nobody runs their mouth in my
Me: You want to deprive me of my freedom
of speech whereas you claim you love me.
Frank this rubbish is not love o.
Frank: Shut up. You keep quiet when I talk.
He wanted to slap me again but I don’t know
what stopped him. I had to make use of that
opportunity. It was talk or die with it.
Me: Aren’t you ashamed of yourself?
How many times have I heard that you
fought your fellow man? Its in the body of
vulnerable ladies that you practice karate.
Frank,this is the second time you’re hitting
me and let it be your last. How can you force
me into a relationship with you when you
already have a girlfriend who is as notorious
as you? Don’t you ever lay a finger on me
Frank: And who says I have some other girl?
You should be grateful that I asked you out.
You’re the only girl in my life and whether
you like it or not,I’m going to have you.
At this point,I had to slap him and I did.
Me: Do I look like some cheap
you can force yourself on? Frank,I’ve
respected you enough. How can you even lie
when the truth is already out. Or you think I’ll
never find out about school fees?
He was startled. I sized him up and walked
The slap he gave me still hurts even after
dinner. Did i tell you that my parents finally
left for the village with my siblings leaving
Ella and myself alone? Oh! I think I just did. I
started sleeping in my brothers’ room
because Ella would always complain that I
disturbed her with my night calls. Some
night,it was with Patrick or Skipoo,other
times,it was with Raymond.
What else could I ask for? I was young and
beautiful and getting all the attention. On the
other hand,Vivian stopped communicating
with me for some reasons I didn’t know.
Frank got my number and added to my list of
chykers(sorry,couldn’t figure out the best
word to use o so don’t murder me). Of
course he stopped being a pest,he would beg
for a minute to talk to me. Little did I know
that I was slowly turning into someone else.
Where was that girl that hardly had a boy in
Now,I had about four of them. Worst case
scenario, I was enjoying the attention and
didn’t have time to think of what the
consequences would be.
One week later,I
really remember what happened. She beat
hell into me and Jesus,there was no one to
The best I did was to smash her Samsung
open and close phone. She left the house for
me and I had to nurse the scratch on my
She came back an hour later
grin on her face. Later that evening,dad
came back with my mum. Immediately I saw
them without my siblings I knew I was in for
trouble. I quickly bolted through the back
gate,without my phone,ran like a mad woman
down the street and guess where I was
heading to; Raymond’s house.
