smelt funny, even me notice say I dey
smell, gosh! where I wan take baf now
sef? where I wan take sleep? I asked
so many questions without having answers
for it. I decided first to look for solution
from the se-x smell emanating from me,
I pulled out my pa-nt and wiped my sugar-pot
with it and disposed it across the park fence not
knowing what is behind it and I prayed
it should be stream or some kind of no go area place,
when I heard someone shouting that the
person who threw this pa-nt at him should
wait for him in where she is, nobody advice
me to japa. I came out of the park to express
road, street lights by sides. I decided to
look for police check-point as nobody wan
talk to you, typical city life nobody dey
reason the next person wey dey waka
the same road with am ’cause everybody
na potential criminal. My kneels were
hurting ’cause I have spent hours in bus
and now am still trekking looking for a
way to get to my destination, my life is
frustrating. I walked dejectedly feeling
tired until I stumbled on Police Check-point
were cars were stopped to pay, I no know
wetin the money is for whether na security
or marching ground, the police officers
knew better. I met them and complained to
them that I don’t know where I am, they
seemed disinterested and even threatened
to arrest me if I continue pestering their
ministry of give and pass. I had no choice
to mention my father’s name who was
a D.P.O luckily for me, I was in my dad
division. See the way the angry policeman became
lovely and caring, they called my father
and told him that they have rescued his
lost daughter from street hoodlums, person
wey say my disappear. I was taken to the
police station and the officer who took
me there bought delicious meal for
me, I no know say I be price tag until my
papa came and gave him some huge amount
of money which I didn’t know. He told
me I shouldn’t tell my dad that he lied oh,
Claiming he hadn’t pay his children school
fees, na every opportunity Nigerians dey
take make money. My dad was hurting
but he never spoke of it, he booked me
in a hotel and ordered them to get me
another clothe before he left, I had my
bad and my new clothe arrived with p-ant
and bra-, I didn’t know if the policeman
at the road block told him I was raped
also. I changed and slept soundly, regretting
being a big fool and decided to be smarter in life.
I was brought home by my dad driver,
My step mother was surprised and displease
to see me return, she was carrying a child
which I guess won’t belong to my father.
She came to my room that night to talk
Step-mom: so you don come back to kukuma finish the work?
Me: wetin be that?
Step-mom: to kill my husband na.
Me: *I laugh* na my father be that.
Step-mom: useless ashewo, I doubt whether you be em pikin?
Me: aunty hold am there, you fit call me ashewo but no insult my mother, I take Gawd beg you.
Step-mom: wetin you go do ehhnn? like mother like daughter.
Me: dey deceive yourself, one day fowl yansh go open. My papa wan better your life but you think say na Gate-man p—k go help you for life.
was shocked and angry, she never knew
I know all along what was going on behind
the scene. I just ignored her and slept
on my bed, naso this woman hate me?
I went to school the next day, I have missed school
for Months and they were about to start
third term examination. Them don give
prefectship finish and no one even reach
me because I was absent. Immediately
I reach school naso amebo association
gathered me asking me what happened?
That Clara told them I have married a
billion son and we both eloped, that they
are jealous of me. From that day I knew
Clara is a small witch that would have lured
me to my destruction. Clara was made
the Senior Prefect and she looked down
at me like thrash, she even wanted to use
her office to do rubbish with me. I just
ignored the nonsense and walked away.
One Friday night like that I felt restless
and I decided to watch movie till sleep
comes, I went out of my room quietly and
walked pass my Step-mom’s room. She
was on call, I heard her voice.
Step mom voice: you be idiot, the girl don return…..
Step mom: why you allow am escape? ……
Step-mom: you better fine way come carry am back, or you go pay me all my money.
was shocked wondering who was on the
phone with her, the next morning I felt
uncomfortable around my sugar-pot region.
I had to be admitted in the hospital for
STDS, how I for do am if na HIV? the doctor
just dey look me with one kind eye. Even
this kind small girl don dey fu-ck too, after
the treatment I returned home to see Clara
in my house, who let her in? I don’t know.
I asked her to leave but she refused begging
me to forgive her, I did in other to teach
her a big lesson. One day Israel the First
approached me, I mean the rich version
of Israel not the poor and wretched Israel
the Second. He told me that he was only
testing me if I loved him for the money,
that he loved me so much that he wanted
me back, that he is sorry for introducing me
to such life that he is very rich and he will
take me to overseas if I agree to elope
with him again. I told Clara about this
and she asked me to go ahead with Israel,
that his family is very rich that she saw
him in one news online. Is high time I
start teaching these idiots that am not that
daft, starting from Clara.
