My mind as a teenager


episode 39

I got home,took my bath and switched off

my phone. I went through my stuffs to

ensure that I had packed everything I needed.

I slept off.

The next morning,I woke up around 9am.


Dad has left for work while mum was

preparing the meal I’ll leave to school with. I

did the morning chores that was left and

around 11:30am,mum drove me to school.

Not much words were said before she left.

My friends that were back helped me to carry

my things to the ss3 hostel. I

unpacked,cleaned my corner and went to

Chidimma’s corner. Did I say she had

become my best friend? Upon seeing me,she

jumped on me and her next question left

guilts all over me;

Chidimma: Ehe. Welcome o. So why didn’t

you tell me that you and Raymond are


I kept quiet and stared at her.

Chidimma: Ehe. Guilty conscience. You told

me everything but you didn’t add that one.

Me: Its not it o. Didn’t feel it was necessary

to mention it. But who told you?

She laughed and clapped her hands

Chidimma: I don’t know if you will remember

Ogoo. She’s tall and fine(those were her

exact words).

I started thinking. The only girls I ever talked

to in that class was Vivian and Lois. In

fact,almost all their girls were tall and


Chidimma: She was the one that told me

about you and Raymond.

Me: You no get handwork o. So you went to

investigate me this holiday eh?

Chidimma: I get handwork joor. She came to

see me and when I mentioned you,ah,she

opened your chapter o. How boys were

running after you and how you didn’t even

give the girls face.

I started laughing.

Me: Abeg, how was your holiday?

Chidimma: Don’t even try it o. You want to

change the topic abi? Tell me biko,how is

Raymond? Did you see him this holiday? Is

he still fair and fine?

Now,where was I going to start from?

Me: Actually, Raymond travelled to his villa

for christmas. We didn’t get to spend much

time together. He hasn’t even returned sef.

Chidimma; Ha! Raymond no try o. He should

learn to be Romantic. He should. . . . . . . . . .

Me: Did you bring the mp3 we agreed that

you’ll bring?

Chidimma: Yes nah. Why won’t I bring it?

The term is going to be long and I don’t need

a dull moment in it.

Me; Better o. Keep mine safely. Will collect it

later. Let me go and see Victoria.

Chidimma: Wait for me so we can go


Two weeks into the term,our maths teacher

sent for me during afternoon prep. I went to

the staff room and he was alone;

Teacher: Bolt the door.

I did but I stood there.

Me: Good afternoon sir.

Teacher: Come here and sit down. We can’t

communicate while you’re at Jerusalem.

I smiled and went to his table. I sat down

opposite him. Maths master was a cute

man,he was tall,chocolate in colour,he had an

accent that sounded like he grew up abroad.

He also had a pointed nose. Gosh! I love

guys with pointed nose. His lips were small

and was fit for his oval face.

Me: Thank you sir.

Teacher; You’re welcome sweetheart

“What? sweetheart? My brain quickly

interpreted the message and my heart started

beating very fast.
