My Mind As A Teenager
I had just finished from secondary school so
I was always home alone…my mum nd dad
were still working clas-s.
I was born into a family of eight;my dad,mum
nd five siblings.we were born equally:3 boys
nd 3 girls,I happen to b d second child nd
My elder sister was alre-ady in d university at
Enugu.My immediate younger bro,who I was
four years older dan was still in primary six(I
was nd still very intelligent so I skipped
Then,my younger sister and two twin boys…I
finished secondary school at d age of 16,but
at dat age,I was alre-ady a developed woman.
I had a well endowned b0s0m.My h!ps were
wi-de,I had a killer eyeball,a straight leg which
am still proud of,a dimple on my left cheek.
I won’t call myself beautiful but am sure I
looked good facially,t©pped wit my b©dy,j
knw I can make guys drool while staring. At
sixteen,I was no longer a vir-gin……..Yes.!my
teenage mind dealt wit me a lot and if u
don’t mind,here is my story….
my secondary school was far from
home.about four hours drive from Onitsha
where my family house was(is) located.In
school,I was one of d best.Teachers nd my
fellow students recognised me nd I loved
as-sociating wit everyone.While in
js3(2006),most of my girlfriends alre-ady had
b©yfri£nds. some of my clas-s boys
approached me but I just didn’t knw why I
always said no.But I ll always encourage my
girlfriends to accept any guy dat proposed to
dem.Rumour had it dat I was a l£sb!an but
who cares?cos I didn’t.The day we wrote our
last paper(junior waec),I was at a corner wit
my girlfriends breaking our pens and using
markers to write on d wall when a guy
approached us and cleared his throat.
His name was Lawrence and everyone of our
clas-smate called him Law.We all looked at
I turned nd my heart started beating very
fast.bu-tterflies suddenly bec@m£ p@rt of the
worms in my stomach.
“hey girls”, he greeted us wit a smile dat
could melt a soldier’s heart..
my girlfriends replied wit smiles nd most of
dem hvgged him.They all knew I was
crushing on him.
Law: u mind if I steal your friend from u for a
They all looked at me.Regina,my best friend
among d girls tugged my shi-t and pushed
me to him,
Regina: she’s all yours.
they all laughed and left me alone with him.I
hadn’t spoken a word since he arrived.
Law: Rose,are u alright?
me: yes….I’m fine.
law: I dont know u to b a shy girl o.when did
this one start eh?
I looked at him and couldn’t help but smile.
me: am sorry about that.its just dat u re the
last person I expected to see.
law: hmmm. why? or are you not comfortable
wit having me here?
me: not at all.am good.
law: good.so,how are you?
me: I’m fine.very happy am no longer a junior
law: same here dear.look what I bought for
he handed me to cards…one was plain.it was
a congratulatory card..I looked at him and
me: thank u.
law: open the other one..
I opened the second card….”I love you……be
my girlfriend ” was written boldly,den by the
side,some ro-mantic words were scribbled in
small letters..I was surprised.I looked at him
and he nodded.
law: I didn’t want to beat about the bush.
law: I want us to start our s£nior year with
this relationsh!p.think about it.But know that I
love you de-eply nd I also know that you feel
something for me.
I kept quiet for a while.I was happy that
finally,he proposed to me.But then,a thought
c@m£ to my mind.
me: Lawrence, wat if I don’t come back for
he kept quiet and looked surprised.After
some seconds,his face lit up.he held my
shoulders nd gave out that his usual smile;
law: I know u ll come back,if not for
anything,you ll come bk for me.
he pe-cked my forehead nd walked away.
Lawrence was a handsome boy.At 13,I knew
who s handsome and who s not.He had a
broad che-st and muscles outlined his arms.
He always wore a smile.He wasn’t too tall but
more than average.He was also very
intelligent. He was very athletic nd loved
showing his abs……I think datz d reason I fell
for him…..our girls gossiped that some s£nior
girls were asking him out but till d@t£,I never
confirmed if its true or not. He was just too
Sekxy nd he knew it. I looked at the card in
my hand and smiled…
I must return for ss1….yes,I must…
