My mind as a teenager

episode 48

HOME SWEET HOME

 

I couldn’t get enough of the food that night.

Mum had prepared breadfruit which was my

favourite. She kept on complaining that I was

lean and unkempt,she didn’t spare my plate

as well cause she kept loading it with the

breadfruit. The only people missing were my

father and my elder sister. Ella was in school

while dad had being transfered to Jos.

After dinner,I called dad and we spoke for a

long time. I also called my sister. She

confirmed to me that she just returned to

school the previous week. We talked for long

too before I heard someone call her in the

background so she excused herself. I

stretched out on my bed and slept off.

The ringing of my phone woke me up. It was

some minutes past 3am. I looked at my

phone and it was Patrick.

Me: Patrick

I called out in my sleepy voice.

Patrick: I must be a lucky man. I just said let

me try your number to see if its available and

look,its not just available,you picked too.

I smiled to myself.

Patrick: When did you come back?

Me: This afternoon. Sorry,yesterday

afternoon.

Patrick; Anyone,you’re welcome.

Me: Thank you. How was the waec exam in

your school?

Patrick: Ah! Was fine o. Yours?

Me: I thank God. Will you be writing neco?

Patrick: No. Most people in my school didn’t

register for it.

Me: Ours was compulsory.

Patrick; You attend rich people’s school nah.

Why won’t it be compulsory?

Me: You’ve started now. Which one is rich

people’s school again?

Patrick: You’ve started your own too. Like I

said,I just said let me try my luck, but noe

that I’m sure that you’re back,I’ll now call

often so I’ll know if we can hang out

Me: No problem.

Patrick; Oya nau go back to sleep

Me: Thank you.

I ended the call and went back to sleep.

 

The next day during my evening stroll,I went

to a corn seller to buy one. There were some

girls talking and I tried not to eavesdrop but I

think I ended up doing that cause I got to

hear one disturbing sentence. “Vivian is

pregnant”. I quickly left the shop immediately

without even buying the corn.

Is it my own Vivian or another Vivian? I

decided to go to Vivian’s house to find out

the truth for myself. I didn’t care anymore if

she was beefing me or not,I was going to get

the truth from her and that’s it. Did I tell you

that Vivian’s elder sister had a pay call shop

in front of their house? I got to the shop,there

was no light so I couldn’t figure out the

people that were there. I went closer and I

observed they were two people making out.;

Me: Vivian is that you?

The both of them turned to me. I went closer

to them and the boy looked away. I didn’t

bother. I wasn’t there to see him anyways.

Vivian: Rose what are you doing here?

Me: I came to see you.

Vivian: Why? What for?

Me; Can we step out please?

Even in the dark,I felt the look of disdain in

her eyes before she said words that left me

in shock;

Vivian: Ebuka,I’ll be right back.

I wanted to be sure I heard right. Ebuka?

I looked at the boy and he still wasn’t looking

at me. I went closer and turned to look him in

the face.

It was my Ebuka. My Ebuka was making out

with Vivian. When did he come back?

Thought he said he would come back for

me?

I turned and ran home without looking back.
