My mind As a Teenager
Ebuka came forward and hugged me.
That moment,I wanted to cry but the tears
refused to come down. I returned the hug
and we stayed that way until Frank cleared
Frank: I understand that you both are best of
friends that is why I decided to come through
him. He understands you more than anybody
else. Sweetheart,you won’t regret this. I will .
. . . . . .
Me: You may go now. I’ll think about it and
give you a feedback and mind you,before I
give you a response,I must talk to Vivian
The two boys looked at me in shock.
Me: Yes. She’s my friend and I can’t bear to
hurt her. I was not raised up that way . You
may go now. I need to speak with Ebuka
Frank: Okay. I will see you later. Please take
care of yourself for me okay?
I didn’t respond to that. He shook hands with
Ebuka and we saw him off to the gate. I
locked up immediately and dragged Ebuka to
the backyard. I broke down instantly. I was
heartbroken,betrayed and lost.
Ebuka: Baby. . . .
Me: Don’t baby me. . . . He has left and you
are back to calling me baby. Ebuka . . . . . . .
Me: Don’t you dare say that to me. What did
he say to you? Tell me,what did he give you?
Ebuka: Nothing dear. Since that day at
Vivian’s house,he’s always talked about you.
I,for one,has never told them anything about
us. The day I planned to do that,was the
same day he declared his intentions about
you so I had to keep my cool.
Me: You’re crazy. Did you ever think about
me before making that decision? Did you ask
yourself how i”ll feel or what will happen to
Ebuka: Baby,you’ll come around. I . . . .
I gave him a hot slap on the left cheek.
Me: Get out. Get out of here. You are wicked
and very selfish. I don’t ever want to see you
anywhere around me. Get out now.
He held his cheek and looked at me. I could
see the tears he was struggling to keep from
Ebuka: I love you Rose. God knows I do. But,I
have learnt never to fight for something that
is mine. I’ll be leaving town today anyways
but just mind you,I’ll still come back for
you,and please be careful.
He gave me a peck on my l!ps and I watched
him leave. A part of me wanted to call him
back. I didn’t want him to leave. But he had
already walked out of the gate. I sat on that
bench and cried.. “how could he think of
another person’s happiness and ignore us?”
A horn at the gate brought me back to my
s£nses. Before I could get to the gate,my
younger brother was already there. I stood in
front of the door and waited for mum to
I greeted her and rushed to my room.
I dialled Ebuka’s number but it was switched
off. I s£nt him a text saying that I didn’t want
him to leave..
After dinner,I went to my room and checked
my phone,three missed calls from an
unsaved number. Thinking it was Ebuka who
wanted to reach me with another line,I called
