The forbidden love episode 2






After I was done with what I was doing, I decided to open the message that I received earlier. I took my phone and cu-mddled up in be-d before finally opening the message. I hissed when I saw this before it was just one of those mtn messages. I didn’t know why I reacted that way because I wasn’t even expecting a message. I was about to open the snake game on my phone when another message c@m£ in. I opened the message and behold it wasn’t from mtn again, it was from a number that I hadn’t seen before so I decided to re-ad it first. It was my s£nior, I mean my new school father who was just asking how about my well being. He did seem like a pretty nice s£nior. I smiled and replied his message before saving his number as s£nior daniel. I decided to take a nap before re-ading so that I could feel refreshed. My day was really long.


I decided to take a nap before re-ading…..

A few hours later, I woke up a few minutes before eight o’clock. I still felt like slee-ping, but I knew I had to re-ad because tomorrow was my first paper in secondary school. My sister was alre-ady done with her exams. She was just in primary four so they always finished exams and school early. Older cousins alre-ady told me about secondary school and how I nee-ded to re-ad very well for my exams because it was not the same as primary school even though I used to come out as t©p of my clas-s. I re-ad until it was twelve o’clock and went to be-d because I had to wake up early for school.

A week later, I was done with my exams, I was so happy that finally I could watch my favourite shows that I couldn’t watch during exams. When I got home, I went to take a shower, change into comfortable clothes and went into the sitting room immediately before Frank called me to come take my food. I carried my food and went to sit down on the couch closest to the television. Thank goodness my sister wasn’t there, we would have had to wrestle for the remote control and couch. While eating and watching my show, my phone rang. When I saw the caller id, I was happy because it was from uncle Sam so I picked it up without hesitation. “My princess, how are you?” he said. I told him I was fine and that I just concluded my exams. He did sound happy for me or maybe for himself. He told he hadn’t called me since because he didn’t want to disturb me and my exams. I smiled and sighed because I just saw him as a nice man. Even though I had a father who cared about me, I felt more comfortable and happier around uncle Sam. Not just because, he bought us gifts and all but because he just was always there for us. I could see the love he had for us, I still couldn’t un-derstand why he wasn’t re-ady to settle down. Before he ended the call, he told me, he was coming to pick me up tomorrow for our outing and so I should get re-ady before it was 12:00pm. I told him I nee-ded to ask my parents for permission but he said he alre-ady asked them for me and they were fine with it and so I agreed. “Goodnight, I love you”, he said and I replied with “Goodnight” but he called my name with a little anger in his tone. “Yes?” I answered with confusion. “You don’t like saying you love me too when I say I love you or don’t you love me?” when he said this, I laughed because I never expected him to say something like that and so I apologized and innocently told him I loved him too before he ended the call with a sigh..

The next day, when I woke up, I did my little house chores before going to take a shower. After that, I went to look for a nice cloth to wear. I brou-ght out a purple blouse that uncle Sam had gotten for me and one of my black jeans. After dressing up, I combe-d my relaxed hair and decided to leave it down. When I was done, I went to the sitting room to wait for him. My sister was alre-ady feeling so sad that I was being taken out without her so I tried to console her and told her that it would be her turn next time since uncle Sam said so. I gave her my phone to pl@ygames to make her feel a little better but not long after, it rang and so I collected it from her and picked the call. It was uncle Sam, he said he would be in my house in five minutes and exactly five minutes later, he was at the door. My sister quic-kly ran to hvg him when she heard his voice. She started acting really sad around him and uncle Sam immediately guessed what was wrong so he promised her that it would be her turn next time and he would take just her out, he even promised to buy her something when we go out. Herl-ips began to curve into a smile and soon enough we all dep@rted in happiness. Uncle Sam was just a natural. He was good at everything, I just couldn’t believe he could be so perfect in everything. We got into the car and drove off.

On our way, he asked where I wanted to go to first and I told him anywhere he was willing to take me as I did not have anywhere in mind yet so he said we would go have lunch first and maybe I’ll be alive by then. I laughed when he said so because I was actually hungry. I didn’t have breakfast in the morning because I knew uncle Sam would spoil me with food and snacks when we go out. After about one hour of driving and slee-ping in traffic, we finally got to sweet s-en-sation, one of my favourite restaurants. He parked and we both hopped out of the car. When we got into the restaurant, we went straight to order food at the counter. I ordered my usual rice and roasted chicken with plantain and he ordered grilled fish with rice and moi-moi. A meal he enjoyed whenever we ordered food there. We took our tray of food and went to look for a seat. We found one at the far end of the restaurant, just in a corner and so went to sit there. He smiled when we sat and I smiled back at him in confusion. “I’m glad I’m here alone with you”, he finally said. I just smiled at him, feeling so shy. He even complimented me and called me his beautiful angel. My shyness at that moment knew no bounds, but I felt happy and different about the compliment. The way he complimented me left me feeling like a girl, like I was loved and I was at peace. We were having our lunch and gisting, when my phone that was just right beside my tray started ringing. I looked at the caller id and realized it was s£nior Daniel. Looking back up, I noticed uncle Sam squee-zing his face but I wanted to pick the call..

I excused myself and picked the call right in front of uncle Sam. He just kept staring at me with a very straight face. I couldn’t really tell if he was angry or not. I mean, it’s just a phone call right. “Hello?” I said when I picked the call. “How are you meso? I just called to say hi” s£nior Daniel replied. “I am fine s£nior Daniel.” I said. “No, no, no. You don’t nee-d to call me s£nior Daniel. Just call me Daniel. I am your school father now.” H said. “Okay, I’m sorry Daniel. I won’t call you by s£nior Daniel again.” I replied. “That’s much better, my baby” he said. “My baby?” I questioned myself in my mind. “What are you doing? i hope i’m not disrupting anything.” s£nior Daniel said. “I’m actually busy with my uncle”, “Oh!!! so sorry. Then I’ll call you later. Just call me when you’re free” He said and I replied with an okay before we ended the call. Dropping the phone back on the table, uncle Sam finally spoke up. “Who was that? your b©yfri£ndabi? you’ve started d@t!ngehn?” “No uncle Sam, He’s not my b©yfri£ndoo, I don’t have any b©yfri£nd. He is just my school father.” I replied. “You don’t know that’s how it all starts. Don’t pay attention to them oo. You don’t know I’m the one that’ll marry you.” He said with a smile. I just laughed because it was not the first time he was saying it and he reminded me of my dad. My dad would always say that to me when he’s trying to tell me to forget boys and not have b©yfri£nds.

When we were almost done with our meal, uncle Sam cleared his throat and told me he wanted to tell me something. “my princess, do you know I like you. I love you so much. In fact, my love for you cannot be found in this world” “Unc..” I was about to call him uncle Sam before I remembered he didn’t like it. “Sam, (it still sounded weird for me to call him that but I did anyway), I love you too, we all love you. You are a very nice man. Even my friends tell me especially after you bought things for them the day you took all of us out.” I said. He just smiled when I st©pped talking and replied, “No, Meso, I don’t mean that. I…….don’t worry” I couldn’t un-derstand what was going on or what he was trying to say, but he just smiled. We finished our meal and waited for some time before we left the restaurant. When we got into the car, uncle Sam didn’t start the engine immediately. He looked up at me and leaned in closer to me. I thought he was trying to gr-ab something from my side of the car, but he pe-cked me on my cheeks instead and whispered, “I love you”. There was something different in his voice especially the way he said he loved me. it didn’t really sound like the uncle Sam I knew. He sounded more like a different man. I was just eleven, almost twelve so I didn’t really suspect anything. He was just my uncle afterall..

He later started the engine, asking me where I wanted to go so I told him I want to go to the movies and so we left the scene. When we got to the movies, he bought me popcorn and a Pepsi and got the same for himself. It wasn’t time for the movie we picked to watch and so we went to check out some other things. The movie theatre was in a big shopping mall, so we decided to go site seeing and possibly buy something for Esther.

An hour later, we were back to the movie theatre. We took our seats on the third row, right in the middle. During the movie, uncle Sam kept on glancing at me. I just smiled whenever I caught him stare. I was enjoying the movie, so I paid little attention to what he said or did. I laughed almost every single minute and couldn’t control myself even uncle Sam noticed how much I was enjoying the movie. Two hours later, we were done and we left the cinema. Uncle Sam told me he wanted to get something from his house and so drove there immediately. When we got into his house, he asked if I was hungry. I laughed and asked him if he wanted to kill me with food so he got the message that I wasn’t hungry. He dropped his keys on the table and asked me to follow him to his be-droom. I didn’t see anything wrong with it because he was my uncle so I followed him. We got into his room and he went to his closest immediately. I guess he wanted to gr-ab something. I just went for the be-d. I was about to sit on the be-d when he said I should check in the drawers beside his be-d for a blue paper. I was guessing it was an important do¢v-ment so I reached for the drawers and opened the first one. I didn’t see any blue paper so I decided to check the other two drawers below the first one. When I opened the second one, my eyes automatically bec@m£ big. I saw a drawer filled with what looked like c0nd0m, although they were all still in its pack, I didn’t st©p at staring. I decided to t©uçh one and I realized it did feel like what they had brou-ght to clas-s one time during our integrated science period. My teacher had shown us a c0md0mwhen she was teaching on a t©pic un-der reproduction. She made everyone get a feel of what it looked like. She didn’t encourage anyone to use it. Especially because we were still young so she wouldn’t expect anyone to be having S-x but she told us that, it was one of the ways people prevented STDs or getting pregnant. To my guess, I concluded it was a c0nd0m. I turned back to see if uncle Sam noticed what I had seen, and just about that same moment I turned back, he turned as well. He looked down to the drawer and realized what I saw. My heart started pounding like I just saw the devil..
