My mind as a teenager

 

episode 73

Life went back to normal. My dad’s health

condition got better so he came home with

mum relieving me of the duties I already got

used to doing. I started staying at

home,waiting for 2012 to come so I can go to

the university.

*******””””””””2012″”””””””*********

This year came with great expectations from

everyone especially me.

To pass time,I had to start teaching. My

mum’s friend needed a teacher in her school

(for primary four) so I had to help out.

Raymond and I had to resort to 2go to

communicate. He was using blackberry then

so Ibegan to notice a lot of changes in him

(that’s why I hate blackberry till this very

day).

The few times we get to see,he keeps on

receiving calls like he was an mtn

ambassador,all from girls.

Sometimes,I had to snatch the phone from

him and end the call,other times,I had to

angrily go home.

Our relationship started turning sour,maybe

because he was in school already and I

wasn’t or maybe because I was no longer up

to his level or taste.

I got tired of the constant quarrel so I had to

stop seeing him entirely. I volunteered to join

in coaching the primary six pupils and js3

students for their upcoming external exams.

It made me very busy and helped me take

my mind off Raymond and his changed

attitude. He didn’t even care because he

never bothered to ask why we were so

distant.

Graduation day came and while I was busy

helping to organise things,I didn’t know that

another new story was coming to my life.

I carried in the cake to one of the classes and

was about to leave when I bumped into

Ifunanya, the same girl that made me

reconcile with Vivian.

I had not seen her since that very day so I

was surprised.

Me: Jesus. What are you doing here?

Ifunanya: I was invited by my cousin. He

teaches here.

Me: Who’s this your cousin?

Ifunanya: Obinna. He teaches Agric Science

Me: Oh! Master Obinna. How come I didn’t

see you as we said again?

Ifunanya: Forgive me o. I had to travel.

Have not even seen Vivian and her baby self.

Just came back today because Obi insisted I

come and when I saw you coming inside

here,I had to follow you.

Me: Okay o. Have you had something to eat?

Ifunanya: Don’t worry joor. I’m here to

entertain my eyes not my stomach.

We laughed together and stepped out to the

school field. The first person I saw as we

came out was Frank. The look he gave me

wasn’t funny at all but who sigh?

I was on my way home after the celebration

and after making sure I had done my own

share of the work. It was some minutes past

7pm so I was walking very fast since the

path was lonely.

I passed by a group of boys and one of them

snatched my handbag and scattered the

contents on the floor. They all started

laughing as they watched my reaction. I was

angry so I slapped him hard on the face. His

friends started booing him,asking him to

double his score. He came forward and

stared at me wickedly. I had to talk nau. My

mouth can never keep quiet.

Me: See eh,don’t touch me because if you do

. . .

Guy: Wetin go happen? Who your papa be?

senator abi governor?

Me: Say anything you want to say but don’t

touch me again. You can’t just see anybody

and start insulting the person. I don’t know

you and you don’t know me either so just

respect yourself.

Guy: The slap wey you give me nko? You go

collect your own nah

Me: I slapped you for a reason. You can’t just

trample on my right. Its not done.

Guy: You still dey speak grammar. I . . . .

A voice spoke from my back so I turned. Lo

and behold,it was Frank. A part of me was

happy that someone came to my rescue.

How wrong I was.

Me: Frank,I don’t know this guys. They just

stopped me here and won’t let me go.

This guys started laughing. Some of them

even fell to the ground. I don’t know what

was amusing them and I didn’t care to know.

 

I just wanted to leave there and with Frank’s

arrival,I was sure I was leaving in one piece.

Frank; Aren’t you at my mercy now?

Me: Frank please let’s just forget the

differences we have. Just help me get out

from this pathway please.

It was getting dark and I was becoming

scared. I bent down and started picking my

stuffs and putting them into the bag. They

watched me without saying anything and

immediately I stood up,Frank snatched the

bag from me. Strange thoughts started

coming to my mind but I refused to believe

them. It didn’t take time before I was

introduced to what was happening.

Me: Frank,please let me go.

Frank: Should I?

My ego or should I say my stubbornness

didn’t let me beg further. I brought out my

phone from my trouser pocket(the teachers

had one ash suits for the graduation and my

own suit was trouser). I was about dialing my

dad’s line(he had come home for a break)

when Frank snatched the phone from me. He

turned it off immediately and put it into his

pocket.

Me: Ahn ahn. Frank what is this nah? You

won’t let me go yet you seized my properties.

Allow me to go home now before things start

getting funny.

I tried to walk away but the kind of slap I got

from Frank left me thinking otherwise. The

slap sealed my mouth and ear immediately.

 

He spoke some words and his friends all

walked away leaving the two of us in the fast

growing darkness. I held my face as I felt

some blood in my mouth.

Frank: You go about gossiping about me

even after I had shut all communications with

you right?

I looked up immediately.

Me: What kind of cheap lie is that one? Since

that day you left my house last year,I have

never mentioned your name talk more of

talking about you to someone. Is that what

all this is all about? Please just let me . . . . .

.

 

Another slap got me on the floor

immediately. He started beating me nonstop.

 

All parts of my body received his beatings.

Like he was not contented with the one I was

getting,he pulled out his belt and started

using it on me. I could only shout for help.

The tears refused to come. My scream must

have attracted someone because out of

nowhere,I saw flashes of light and all of a

sudden,everywhere went blank.
