My Mind As A Teenager (+18)
Me: Hello dear
Frank: Baby,how are you doing tonight?
That voice didn’t belong to my Ebuka and a
quick thought told me who the caller was so I
quickly ended the call. In less than five
seconds,he called back;
Frank: Its me Frank,I’m sure you didn’t know
I was the one.
Frank: How are you?
Me: I’m fine. Please dont be upset,have you
heard from Ebuka?
Frank: Ebuka has left for Abuja. He will be
writing his waec there.
Me: Ahn ahn. But school just vacated.
Why would he leave for Abuja immediately?
He didn’t even tell me.
Frank: He said he has missed his sisters and
would love to spend a lot of time with them
Ebuka’s parents were divorced. He was the
only son out of five kids. His mother lived in
Abuja with his sisters. His father was out of
the country so Ebuka stayed at their house in
Onitsha with his cousins(two boys and a
Me: Okay. We will talk later. I need to call
Frank: He didn’t travel with his phone.
Frank: He asked me to tell you that his
sisters doesn’t like him using a phone so he
broke his sim card and gave the phone to
Out of annoyance,I hung up. What’s his
sisters’ business if he uses a phone or not?
He purposely did that because he doesn’t
want to reach me anymore. I also brought
out my sim card and broke it. He doesn’t
want to communicate,fine,we won’t
communicate at all.
I made sure not to see Frank or Ugoo until
vacation was over. I started staying
indoors,would google up some romance
novels using my sister’s laptop and i’ll ask
mum to help me buy them. They kept me
busy and my plan was working. Three days
before I was to resume school,something
remarkable happened. It was on a
Wednesday,I was sitting at the sit out with
my sister’s laptop playing some songs.
Nobody was at home. My parents to work,my
elder sister to a place I don’t know and my
siblings went for a hair cut.
A heavy banging on the gate got my
I was scared. My instinct asked me to run
inside and lock up all doors but being the
curious girl that I was,I walked briefly to the
Me: Who is that?
I whispered in fear.
Vivian: Rose,ashawo,alacrity(a name
someone who bleeps a lot is called),open this
and the tone belonged to an enemy. I opened
the gate and a hot slap landed on my face.
My l!ps swole up immediately. I looked up
and it was Vivian and Somtoo. Somtoo was
Ebuka’s ex girlfriend. He had told me about
her and I had seen her pictures in Vivian’s
Me: Vivian,what is this now? Why would you
hit my face?
Vivian: You still get mouth to talk abi? You
wan make we kill you for here?
Am a very fearful person. Little things scare
me a lot. Hearing what Vivian just said,I got
very scared but I tried my best not to let it
I always knew that Vivian was more of an
agboro than who she claimed to be.
Me: For what nah? what have I done?
Somtoo: Bia(come),shut up. No just utter one
word for this place again.
Me: Impossible. In my father’s house?
I should be saying what happens here.
Vivian,what is the meaning of this one nah?
Vivian: Don’t just call my name. No try am.
So you went behind my back to date my
boyfriend abi? You’re not even ashamed of
yourself. All you do is take people’s
boyfriends. Why not get yours and stop
tapping from someone else’s current? Stay
away from Frank o. Leave him for me. I can
kill because of him o.
I stood their surprised when Somtoo started
Somtoo: I no wan talk before but since

You appear from nowhere come snatch
Ebuka from me. He ran away from you and

She ranted on and on and I just stood there
like a fish in a cold room.
