My mind as a teenager

Episode 68


Frank was staring wickedly at us. I opened

my mouth but no words came out from

them. Ebuka too wasn’t left out in the shock

but after some seconds,he braced up;

Ebuka: My guy,how far nau?

They both shook hands but Frank wouldn’t

take his eyes off me.

Frank: So its because you’re with him that’s

why you’ve refused to pick my call or answer

the gate.

WTF! In my short time of bliss,I hadn’t even

remembered I owned a phone.

Me: Sorry my phone is upstairs. We were at

the backyard.

Frank: Backyard indeed. And it took you ages

to open the gate despite my heavy banging.

Are you not ashamed of yourself? You didn’t

even try to check if it could be your family

member or not. Your shamelessness is

irritating. Yuck! Rose,you now disgust me.

I bent my head in shame as no word agreed

to come out.


Ebuka: My guy easy nau. She dey owe you?

Frank: Which kain question be that? Because

you don bleep for free nah? But I’ve got a

surprise for you Rose

I looked up as he reached into his trouser

back pocket. He pulled out a fabric that was

blue in colour. A second look at it had me

crying that instant. Ebuka stared from the

fabric to me.

Frank: I just hope you also didn’t leave one

with him.

He threw my own pant on me and looked at

me with the most irritating look I’ve ever


Ebuka: I don’t really understand what’s going

on here. Rose,you screw Frank as well?

All I could do was pick my pant and fly back

into the house. I knew someone was

following me but at that point,I cared less. I

entered the sitting room and cried my eyes

out before he spoke.

Ebuka: What have you turned into? What’s

happening to you?

I looked at him and broke down instantly. He

sat down and fixed his gaze on me.

Ebuka; Is that how people change? You were

a sweet innocent girl before I left. What

happened to you Rose? All the stories about

you and Raymond,are those false stories or

you’re just faking a relationship to cover up

your slutty side?

I could only shake my head.

Ebuka: Speak to me and stop shedding those

crocodile tears. You open up to every J0yst!

ck and Harry you know and you’re here

crying. You even leave your pants with them?

Rose you no do well o.

He stood up and walked up to me. He held

my head and I thought that finally,I was

going to get some consolation but how

wrong was I?

Ebuka: I’m sorry that I called your tears fake

and sorry for calling you names. You deserve

to cry. You really need to cry for your

shameless self. How old are you and you’re

already this wild? By next year,you’ll be so

loose that no man will ever enjoy a moment

with you. Cry Rose because you deserve all

the insults you’re getting at the moment.

He forcefully left my head and walked out of

the sitting room. I heard the gate bang and I

knew he was out.


Tears dried up from my face as his words

rang bells in my head. That was it. Enough of

trying to be friends with anyone who has

ever asked me out. Enough of trying to

accept their apologies only to end up being

used. Enough of trying to please anyone.

Enough of everything already.

It’s just going to be me,me,me,me,me and


I had to take that decision and I took it

without batting an eyelid.

I stood up and went and locked my gate.

Away from Frank,away from Ebuka,away

from Vivian,away from my past and away

from Ist September 2011.
