My mind as a teenager


episode 36

I went home on a Saturday. As

usual,everyone was at home to welcome me.

My sister got admission to study mass

communication in IMT that year. After the

welcoming ritual,we were all informed by

daddy that we won’t be travelling to the

village. My siblings were not happy but I was.

My sister would be coming home the

following week.

After dinner,I went to my room and brought

out my phone. I turned it on and called all

my contacts(except Vivian and Raymond). I

told them I was home and they were happy.

They all wanted to hang out but I told them it

won’t be soon because I had work to do

(meeting and reconciling with Raymond). I

had planned to use Chidimma as an excuse

to get him to talk to me. I wasn’t going to

talk to Vivian. I don’t know why she stopped

talking to me and I don’t care to know. We

were beefing so let it remain like that.

Frank called me around 11pm.

Frank: Runaway girlfriend.

I smiled.

Me: I’m not your girlfriend o.

Frank: That’s your business. Junior told me

you came back today

Me: Yes.

Frank: How was school?

Me: Fine o.

Frank: Hope you’ve made good friends?


I couldn’t help but smile. I told him how

difficult it was for me to cope in the new

school at first. Someone who saw was

listening to our conversation wouldn’t guess

it was Frank. And if anybody had told me

that I would be that cool with Frank,I would

have slapped the person. I don’t know if it’s

because he joined the rescue team that

looked for me or because I had a soft spot

for him,I don’t just know. We fixed a day to

hang out and it was to be on Monday. We

wished each other goodnight and I slept.

The next day,I joined the family to church. On

our way home,we drove past Raymond’s

house and memories of that night came back

to me. He had scolded me for leaving

home,yet he still accommodated me,he didn’t

even take advantage of me that night.

This thought made me love him the more.

I vowed to make up with him no matter what

it takes.

We got home and while mum got busy in the

kitchen,I got busy with my phone. I sent a

message to Raymond;

“met a girl in my new school,Chidimma

Onyebuchi by name and she asked about

you.Do you remember her? How are you

doing? I miss you a lot.”

I wanted to write more but I decided to see

his response first. I clutched my phone to my

chest and waited. My younger brother came

to my room to inform me that mum needs

my help in the kitchen. I dropped my phone

on the bed and left for the kitchen.

After lunch,I came back to the room and

found a message on my phone.

“believe me when I say that I hate you.”

I checked the name of the contact,Raymond.

Tears left my eyes immediately. I sat down

on the bed and did a flashback on what my

life has become since Lawrence played me. I

wasn’t going to breakdown again. I have to

fight whatever it is even if it is Raymond.

He hated me right? so I have to forget about


I wasn’t going to apologise or ask him to

take me back. He knew how helpless I was

then, yet he said he hated me. I quickly

deleted his number from my phone and

dialled Franks’ number. He was the only

person that was close to me a that moment

and he was the only person that could stop

me from  breaking down from another

heartbreak…………….that was my thinking,and

yes! I was wrong.
