The shadow of sinful relationship

Rudzi was tossing and turning all night so we only fell asleep on early hours.She was holding on to me for her dear life.Now I know that this has really affected her.Its gonna take her time until she can be able to be left alone..I watched her as she was sleeping peacefully.The sun was rising and it was very hot..I couldn't sleep in such weather..I tried getting up from the bed without waking her up but I failed diamisally..
Me: Babe it's morning you can go back to not going anywhere.
She didn't say anything but she closed her eyes again.I went and looked at myself on the mirror.atleast those guys didn't touch my face. But we have one problem.Im unemployed.

I may have been through alot in life but one thing I never forget to do is pray.I know all this are trials to test my faith in God.I was busy cleaning up the house listening to worship house-thoma nga nna Murena...This is one song that lifts my spirit.It gets me connected to my spiritual self and I actually feel the presence of God in my life
'Thoma nga nne Murena ndi shanduke
Thoma nga nne Murena ndi shanduke
Thoma nga nne Murena ndi shanduke
Ndi tshidzwe
Ndi tshile'
I don't know how I got in the floor but u was on my knees praying with tears flooding my eyes.Its really a difficult path with alot of obstacles.Its not even easy but I know God is watching.I know God will answer my prayers.Regardless the situations we face we should not cease to worship God.We should not for get to tell him how marvelous he has been to us.It wasn't because of our will that we woke up to another day but it was his will,love and protection that we are still alive..
And I know that it was written in the boom of Matthew 7: 7 that Ask and it shall be given to you, Seek and you shall find,knock and it shall be opened unto thee. Our God is not a God of disappointments.He is a God of restoration and prosperity.He is a God of peace and love..
I kept on praying until I felt peace in my heart.A lot of burdens have been lifted off my shoulders..When I said Amen that's when I felt hands pick me up from the floor. When you are in the presence of the Holy spirit you feel like you can not withstand the feeling because it's too powerful for you..
Les : I'm not a saint but I felt the presence of God in here.
I just nodded..I didn't trust my voice to speak.
Les: I didn't know that I had that song in my phone.
Me: I downloaded it.
Les: I will keep it..It is one unique song that can get one in the presence of God in a matter of seconds.It can even take a sinner like me to church
I giggled.
I felt sleep taking over my body.that is how peaceful I felt.

It was during the day so nothing can happen to her.I have to go out and seek for a job..I don't care what kind of a job it is but as long as it will bring food on the table for my Rudzani.I walked down the street..I didn't even know where I would start..There was alot of things occupying my mind.Im at my lowest.Not once did I think life could ever be this cruel.Im a graduate.I went to school all those years just to suffer like this.Just when I thought things will be better that man who calls himself boss push me further into the mud.It bothers me how useless the qualifications I have are of no use because of my own parents.Why didn't they pressurise Ethan to go for this course so that he can take over because he is someone who won't mind....
I came across two ladies who looked like they were in their mid 40s..
Me: Good morning
Them: Good morning.
Me: I'm looking for a job.Even if it's something small like gardening I don't mind.
Lady 1: I have been looking for a garden boy for two weeks now.You could be of use..follow me.
I followed her.
Lady 2: Friend I hope you won't turn him into what you turned the last garden boy you had.
Lady 1: This one is even cute..Look at his body..I can imagine the things he will do to me
I couldn't believe what those two were saying.they were trying to whisper but I heard every word.
We got to her house after a while and she showed me her yard..It was messy so I got down to it..She was sitting at the patio with her friend im sure gossiping about me..I thought I will be done in an hour or two but it took me 3 and it was already 12 so I went to them when I was done.
Me: I'm done.
Lady1: Can't you stay for long?
Me: No ma I can't.I left my pregnant girlfriend alone..
She gave me the money
Lady1: Please come again after 2days.
Me: Okay Ma.
I took the money.
Me: I will take my leave now.
Them: Bye.
I walked away leaving them to continue with their gossip.

I woke up to no sight of Les.I honestly didn't feel safe at all but I didn't want to sound like a nagging pregnant wife so I let it be..I miss talking to Nani.I miss doing alot of things with her.She never called so I also didn't bother especially after what she did.But I was no longer angry at her.Im someone who can't stay angry for long.I always forgive those who wrong me.I think that's what helped me keep up with mom's treatment for all those years.Just like the Lord's prayer we should forgive those who wrong us as we expect God to forgive us for the wrongs me do...
Cooking is therapeutic so I went to the kitchen and cooked lamb stew and macaroni..Les walked in as I was switching off the stove..
Les: Good afternoon
Me: Hey love .You seem to be in a good mood
Les: I very much am.I got a job as a garden boy.
Me: Wow that nice..It counts for something..
Les: yeah it does.But I will push until I find something stable..
Me: Why don't you let me help aswel?
Les: Babe I said no
Me: Iyo okay..
Les: It smells good in here.What does a man have to do to be given food?
Me: I don't know..Maybe eat me first.
He laughed hard.
I frowned
Les: Babe you are serious?
Me: I'm not talking to you.
I walked away to the bedroom.
I can't let Ethan find Lea because I know he will try so much to convince his parents to clear his name.Then he will gain his power back.He will have all the money he needs and I know he will never look at me not even once.What I did to him was alot to handle..If i notice that Ethan is near to finding him on his own I will have to do damage control and go to him to ask for forgiveness..
Ethan and Stan's sex drive is not like Les.How I miss him.These two are not that strong like him.Atleast Ethan is better but Stan o worse shem.In this life without money you are nothing..
Just the thought of Les made me realise how much I really do miss him..I tried to call but it didn't go through.
I asked Ethan's PI to give it to me and when he did I sent his a message..I noticed Stan walking in so I started playing Makhadzi's song

'Zwimpfarapfara hune na funa , ndi si wanu thinga tendi hemtha, zwo  mpfarapfara hune na funa
Ndisi wanu a thinga tendi,  dolicha umpfara pfara hune na funa ndisi wanu thinga tendi vhanna

Athinga koni zwa u shuma ndisa  holi,nne thinga koni zwa u shuma ndisa holi, athi zwifuni u shuma  ndisa  holi nne zwau shuma ndisa holi, athi zwi pfesesi zwa u shuma ndisa holi
Athi zwifuni zwa u shuma ndisa holi

Ndi khotoda tshanda iya tshanda vhuya , ndi khotoda  tshanda  iya tshanda  vhuya mara muhulwane a vha badeli ndi khotoda tshanda iya tshanda vhuya mara vhasa avha badeli'

He got the message loud and clear.
Stan: What is this Mashudu? Are you with me because of money? Is it money that you want? What kind of a song is that?
Me: Well I just love this song but if you feel like it's sending a message to you then maybe it is supposed to send the message.i have been riding you nights and you don't even thank me. I'm a lady and at some point you have to spoil me or maybe I should go back to my broke Lesley besides him being broke he knows how to satisfy my needs on bed.
I stood up and attempted to walk put but he clapped me with the back of his hand so hard that I fell and lost sight for a few minutes.
Stan: You don't fucken say such shit to me..You chose me so you better obey me.And this shit you are doing with Ethan better stop or else I will blow his brains infront of you and you will live your life with that..I may seem quiet but trust me i can be your worst nightmare.
I was trembling on the floor.What has gotten into Stan.What happened to the sweet nerdy Stan who wouldn't harm a fly?
Stan: Get the fuck up and give me what I want.He had a straight face on.
' Its been long and I realise that I made you suffer..It has passed.What we had is gone but all I know is that I still love you and I can't accept that we are really done.I may have wronged you,I may have sinned against you but please forgive me.
Les: What the fuck does she want? Babe delete that message and block the number.
Me: Who is she?
Les: The gold digger who left me for my cousin when I was down and low.
Me: Oh her
Les: Yes her..
We were watching tv.Boss and his goons walked in.
Les: You are becoming a frequent visitor here.
Boss: Boy you don't know who you are messing with now do you.
Les: I think I do know.Cant you just leave is in peace?
Boss: Not until I get what i want..
He winked at me then left.

3days later
It was early in the morning and I was doing Mrs Sadiki's yard and this time her friend was not around.
I was thirsty so I went to knock at her door.
She opened up still I  a gown.
Me: Sorry mam I'm thirsty.can I please have water.
Her: Come in.I will go fetch the water in the kitchen
Me: Okay..
I got in and she disappeared to the kitchen and she came back with bottled water
Her: There you go.
Me: Thank you.
Her: Uhr Lesley
Me: Ma
Her: You know I can triple your pay if you satisfy my needs.
Me: Sorry
Her: My husband is I  the military and I hardly have him home.So I'm a woman and I have needs.
She said that taking off her gown.She came towards me.
Her: All you have to do is sleep with me whenever I want you to.
I really do need the money but is this worth it?
She touched my pants.
Her: Think about it.
I walked out and finally swallowed the lump in my throat.Is this a temptation or what?
I went back to the garden and when I was done I finally went back home.I had alot in my mind.

At Rudzani's home.
Dad: Where is your mom?
Ipfi: She went to town
Dad: Come here and sit on daddy's lap.
Ipfi remembered her sister's words when she told her never to sit on a man's lap even if it's her father or uncle or any man she knows.
Ipfi: I have homeworks daddy.
Dad: I said come here you little tart.
Ipfi walked with fear towards her step father.
He extended his hand and pulled her to sit on his lap..He ran his hands on her smooth flawless thigh.He had a boner immediately..
Dad: Your breasts are growing.
He touched them.
Her heart was beating fast with fear.She knew exactly what was happening but was afraid to voice out her concern due to fear she has for this man.
He carried her to the couch and made her lie on facing up.He inserted his finger in her tight kitty.
Dad: If you scream I will kill you.
She had tears falling down.He unzipped his pants and took out his huge manhood and rubbed it on her panty..He started stroking himself with his hand while fantasizing about her.He went far to sucking her..
Dad: You better be getting used to such pleasure because I will be the one who will unseal this.
Dad: Ahhhh fuck..uhhhh Ipfi ahhh
He came on top of her panty and wiped himself with her panty
Dad: Get up and go wash that panty.You better keep this between us or I will kill your brother and mother and I will be here to do this everyday.
She frowned and walked away.What she just saw will traumatize her all her life.She is only a teen.

I cannot begin to explain the way I am feeling right now. Stan forced himself on me. I know we are together but I was an unwilling participant. All this time that we have been together I have never seen this side of Stan. He told me everything that I thought were my secrets that were known only by me. I have no one on my side right now. I miss Les and I know he wouldn't have done this to me.
Stan: Wena neh you better be a submissive girlfriend otherwise you will get a repitation of last night
I just looked at him without saying a word.When did I get here? I always give sex away not to be forced into it.
He walked out and I took my phone and called Les.I was shattered.I was crying so bad.
Les: What do you want?
Me: I'm.. .I.. ..
I cried so hard I couldn't control it..It was hard and really depressing.Never have I thought I would go through this.
Les: hey..Whays wrong? What happened?
Me: He.. he for forced m.m.m.
Les: Camt you calm down first.Go and drink water before and call me when you are calm.
I hanged up.Im just glad that he was understanding.Im glad that he is gonna be there for me.Atleast I won't be alone on this.Someone I love  and care about will be there for  me.We might even rekindle our love.


Boss... what could I possibly say about that man. I am terrified of what he could do to me. I am even scared to leave the house. On the other hand I have been having this uneasy feeling. I just miss my siblings so much. I can't help but wonder how they are treated or what they are going through. Les walked in whilst I was still deep in my i love this man of mine.
Les: Hey baby. How are you?
Me: I am good thanks. You look a little disturbed. What is happening?
Les: Nothing I can't handle my dollface.
Me: If you say so
 I let him off lightly because I was not in the mood for an argument
It was early in the morning the following day.Les was really acting weird since he came back yesterday.All he does is zone out and be in his thinking mood..Whatever it is he has got to cut it out because I don't know him like this.Im used to my forever bubbly Man.
Me: Whatever is bothering you just know that it's affecting me aswel because I'm not used to the quiet you.

I honestly didn't want to stress my lady about the decision I need to make. I cannot stop thinking about this woman. What will happen if her husband one day walks in on us? I could do this because I trust my game but honestly I'm not up for it. I'd rather lose this job because this woman is old and I don't know where she has been or what she has done. I value my life. I will deal with her the next time I see her..
When I was about to console her my phone rang.It Mashudu's other number which I forgot to block.My aim was to tell her off but she was crying like a child.She sounded so hurt so I couldn't just brush her off because i have known her for the longest time.I know her pain.I know all that she has been through in life.I was even surprised that after all we have been through in life she would do that to me..

I was going to campus when I saw her along side a road crying.She was really beautiful to be doing that to herself in public.
Me: Hey beautiful.
She cried even worse.I sat next to her until she was calm.
Me: Come with me..You can't be here crying.
Shudu: I...I don't know you.
Me: I know but I can be of help.
I turned back to my bachelor flat with her.I didn't even know why I was helping.
When we got to the flat i gave her water that had sugar.We sat there in total silence.
Shudu: It started when I was only 15.My father was abusing my mom..He would even rape her infront of me.When my mom got tired of all the pain after years she committed suicide and that's when my father decided to turn me into his wife.He took my innocence and kept on doing that to me for as long as I can remember.When he lost his job he turned me into a money making machine.He would tell his friends about me and they would sleep with me then give him the money.2weeks back one of them refused to use protection and he infected me with a genital warts and I'm pregnant with his child.I don't know what to do.I asked my father for money so that I can go to the doctor but he refused.At this point in my life I feel like commuting suicide.I feel like I was only brought here to suffer.

From that day on I cared for her.I took her to the doctor.She even aborted the baby even though I discouraged her against it but she said she won't be able to live with a child I know I won't love. It's better I abort that bring him or her to suffer like I did in the hands of my father.I took care of her with my pocket money..I even sent her to a nursing school because all she had was a matric certificate..She is now a qualified nurse whom I don't even know now.All she cares about is money just like how her father loved money..
I kept stealing glances at Rudzi.
Rudzi: Do you have something to say? Because of the  way you keep stealing looks at me I suspect that you are feeling guilty of something.It either has to do with your mood since yesterday or it's that call you just received.
Me: No babe it's nothing of such.


Ipfi was sitting on the bed and thinking about what had happened the day before. She was still shocked. In the midst of her thoughts she saw her father standing in front of her. She didn't know what to do. She was terrified because she knew what was about to happen.

Dad: Ipfi be a good girl and come to daddy.

Ipfi stood frozen with tears streaming down her face. She walked slowly towards her father shutting everything...
Dad: Daddy is gonna buy you sweets.Dont cry..
He repeated what he did to her yesterday but today he fingered her hard.She  flinched in pain.
When he left she could finally sleep her sorrows away.

I was in my office just going through a client's file when Stan walked in.
Me: Wow cousy I didn't expect to see you here.
Stan: I wasn't planning on coming here either but I had to deliver a message directly
I swallowed hard.
Stan: You see E I'm someone who doesn't take betrayal simple.Stop fucking with my woman or else it won't be nice.You see this ever smiling and sweet Stan is all an act.There is an arrogant man behind all this.Dont dare wake up the beast in me.Dont try me or else I will fuck you up.Thats not a threat it's a promise.Family or not I will send you to your early grave and still attend your funeral with tears on my face but joy in my heart.Keep your hands to yourself bro.
With that he walked out.He was talking with a serious face and I believed somehow.I wonder who told him

The truth of my family

I never liked that Nani girl in the first place.My gut always told me that she is two timing.
I went back to work.Today was not really full.
Boss walked in with his body guards and I didn't even pay that much attention to him.
Boss: Les in my office now please..
I followed him.His princess was still I his office.
Boss: I see you are a hard worker.So I want to promote you.If you do me a favour though.Its nothing big.
My phone rang and it was Rudzi.I answered..She was sniffing and that rang a bell that she was crying.
Me: Hello
Rudzi: Boss was here.He threatened me.He said I should leave you for his daughter.
Me: Okay..Im in a meeting now with my boss.Can I call you back later on.
Rudzi: You are with him?
Me: Yes.
Rudzi: Am I on loud speaker?
Me: Of cause not.
Rudzi: Okay.We will talk when you get back.
Me: Urrrh boss I believe I just got here and it would be unfair to be promoted while Peter was here before me but still at the same level.I believe in fairness so promote him first.
I see what he is doing. I have a feeling that whatever favour I had to do for him had something to do with his daughter.
Boss: I believe I am the boss and i do as I please.If i want to promote you then I want to.Peter's turn will come.
Me: I love working as a barman so I will have to decline before you can offer Sir.Can i now get back to work?
He chuckled
Boss: You may go
I walked out without even looking back.That man is very self centered and I don't know if I should say stupid.He goes to my house and threaten my lady just because his daughter of a hoe wants me.Surely he doesn't know me.It didn't even take my father's blacklist to me to do what he wanted me to do.So what gives him the impression that I will date his daughter.I was no longer in a mood to work.I went back up to his office. He was hugging his daughter who was crying.
Me: Sorry to disturb.Im not feeling well so can I take the rest of the night off?
He looked at me for a while and I maintained a straight face.
Boss: Sure.
I went and took my backpack and left immediately.
Rudzi was watching tv.
When she saw me she stood up and came to hug me..
Me: What did he say? Did he hurt you?
She  shook her head.

The moment he walked in i felt very safe..
Me: He threatened me Les.He said if I don't leave you something bad will happen.
Les: He won't do anything don't worry.Im here for you
Me: But we are not sure about that Les.He sounded and seem serious.
Les: I will deal with him don't worry.
Me:Maybe I should move out.I will convince Nani to talk to her  mom
Les: Don't even dare.Babe you are not going anywhere...I rather quit working for him and as for that Nani friend of yours how do we know that she is not the one selling you out? I'm not taking any chances,you are not going anywhere.
Me: Why do you hate Nani so much? She is my friend.
Les: Because she is two faced.She is not a  good friend to keep.
Me: Stop please.Nani is my friend.
He took his phone and did something then gave it to me.It was a video.I went through it.
Les: That's the person you call a friend.
I couldn't help it.I cried.Nani was the only person who understood my situation.She was always there for me.What I have just seen is a proof that never  trust anyone not even yourself.She did all this for money.She had a job and I didn't.How could she envy me when I have nothing at all.Atleast she still has a home.But I don't have that.If we wake up one day and Les decides to break up with me then I will be homeless.With Boss also at our back im not even sure that we will last..What kind of a life is this?
Les: I will always be here for you believe me.All I want is what is good for you babe.
If my family failed me then how can a stranger be able to be good to me?

I felt like I was going crazy.Not in this lifetime did I ever think that Sharon will walk away from me.That lady stood with me in times of storms.She was always there even when it was impossible to love me.I don't even want to mention how many times I cheated on her but she never left.I don't even know why I keep on hurting her this much.. Her perfume is all over our bedroom and I can just picture her around.I called her a countless times but she kept rejecting my calls..
It's about time I take it further to look for my twin brother.I can't keep losing the people I love.I took my phone and called my PI.
Me: Anything for me?
PI: Not yet
Me: I get a feeling that you are being useless to me right now.Find him soon.
How can my things go accordingly when I have abondened my other half to suffer in the hands of this world?
My phone rang..I answered without checking the caller id
Me: What?
Shudu: You hai such rudeness..
Me: What do you want Mashudu?
Shudu: I want you..I have alot of things in mind that I can do to you right now.
Me: Come over.Hurry up.
I hanged up

Dad is starting to be useless.He just failed to get me the guy I want.He always gave me what I wanted.This Lesley guy is also hard headed.But it makes it more interesting for me.I will still get him.
Boss: Would you stop sulking? He is just a poor boy and you are sulking over him.
Me: Daddy it's not just that.He seems like the loving type.He won't play with my heart
Boss: He will.That boy looks like he loves his girlfriend and is not willing to sacrifice that.Who refuses a promotion?
I kept quiet
Boss: Well let me tell you.Its a man in love who doesn't want to sacrifice his love just for money.Some people are not power hungry so he is one of those.
Dad was not being submissive now.Maybe I should remind him who I am.
I went closer to him and grabbed him by the balls.He grasped.
Me: You seem to clearly forget how I can be.Get me him and mom won't see our s*x video by a mistake.I walked out after that.
When I realised that my father was starting to take note of me being useless on my studies I seduced him.Stupid as he is he fell for my tricks and everything was recorded.The video is my ticket to get everything I want..Even all that he never gave me I will get it..How does he expect me to respect him after what we did.If he dares try to tell mom I will cry and say he  raped me hence I will never give him the video..
Dad: When will this stop Tendani? I am you father
Me: One who slept with me.
Dad: I hope you know what you are doing because this could destroy your mother and this marriage. As for me I will still bounce back in life.I will get a new young wife and we will have kids.Keep telling yourself that you have they upper hand.
With that he walked away..If daddy does that then I'm dead.Who will spoil me? I groaned in frustration.

I seriously have a problem..I cannot be working for those people when they are nothing but manipulators because they have money..Just because we don't have money doesn't mean we are stupid and we will agree to whatever they want us to do.What do I do because I need the money.Rudzie and I need the money that much.If I leave my job then what will we depend on? Just when one thinks that life is changing for the better things take a drastic turn.
When I got home I found her sleeping on the couch.She looked like she was troubled even in her sleep.Who would seriously treat an innocent girl like her in  such a cruel way though?
I carried her to the bedroom..
I have only met her recently but deep down I love her.I feel like I have known her all my life...All the pain she feels because of her family is the same pain I feel because of mine.We have met for a purpose..We need each other to get through this.I don't know when all this will stop but i know that together we will make it..
She opened her eyes and smiled.
Rudzi: Why are you back this time?
Me: I just wanted to be with you.
I took off my clothes and got in bed next to her..
Me: You in my arms feels right.

2 Months later
Me: How did it get to this point? We have nothing to our name Les.How will we feed another mouth because already we are struggling..
Les: Babe we will figure it out..Im still working.
Me: It's not enough.A child is expensive.
Les: I will work as much to provide.You let me do the worrying because I'm the man okay
Me: Okay.But I will also look for a job to atleast clean or even wash clothes.
Les: In your condition babe I don't think so.
Me: I'm pregnant not disabled.
Les: I'm still refusing.
I raised my hands up as a form of surrender.
My relationship with Led has been great..He never allowed boss to come between us..Not ones has he judged me.He understood my pain like a best friend would.Not only was he my boyfriend but he was also my friend..Whenever I'm sad I always talk to him.Im the past two months i have learnt alot about him.He even opened up to me about what he went through with his family and how his ex left him for his cousin.Sometimes I wonder if he will go home and fix his relationship with his family.So far our child won't know his or her grandparents from both parents..
Les: We should go to the clinic tomorrow to make sure that you are really pregnant.we can't rely on a home test.
Me: If you insist.
Les: I love you.Let me get to work.
Me: Love you too.
I really hate the fact that he is still working late.Its not nice having him come home around early hours of the morning.expecially since it's weekend.
Les: Quit being sad.I will be home before you know it.
I forced a smile.
Les: That's more like it.
He perked my lips then left.I went and locked up after he left..I took a shower then went straight to bed but i noticed that Les forgot his phone.Now how will i call him when there is an emergency.HonestlyI don't feel safe around here when Les is at work,it started two weeks back when I got threatening calls from boss and he was using a private number..Im always shaken whenever thinking about him..
It wasn't that long when I heard something breaking in the kitchen..I became scared same time.As if it wasn't enough boss appeared at the door with his goons..I froze at his site.I was scared for my life.
Boss: I have been waiting for this day for as long as I can remember.
He had a grin on his face.
Me: What do you want from me?
Boss: You.I have always wanted you.
Me: You old almost the same age as your daughter.Are you not ashamed?
Boss: I have tasted her pussy aswel so sorry to burst your bubble but I'm not ashamed.
He came to the bed.
Boss: Take off that shirt..NOW!!
I was wearing Les's oversize shirt
I took it off slowly with tears falling down my cheeks.I was scared for myself and my unborn baby..
He stood up and took off his shirt exposing his big tummy.If this man gets ontop of me he will suffocate me I swear..
He took off his trousers and boxers.I almost laughed at the sight of his manhood..It was erected but small to be an old man's..
Boss: Undress you bitch
Les: Baby I forgot my pho....What the? What are you doing here? Baby are you okay?
I still had tears on my face..
Les: Get the hell out of my house before I call the police
Boss laughed.
Boss: The police? I own this fucken town.The police are nothing but my puppies.And not done with you yet
He pointed at me.
Les: And what will you do to her? Molestrates her? Oh wait you don't have the dick to do that..Nigga you ain't got shit compared to an uncircumcised child.You don't even fit to be called a man.
Les was angry but calm..
Boss: Boys fuck him up..And you are fired.
The goons started beating Les up.I was screaming at them to stop and they stopped when boss was dressed up.They left.
Les: Niggas beat like women..
He didn't seem bad at all.He was even laughing.
Me: I was scared..I thought he was gonna rape me.Did you see how big he is.He was gonna suffocate me and the baby.
I was now crying.
Les: Calm down babe I'm here.nothing will happen to you now..

Most people may hate me for the kind of life i live..Sleeping with brothers and their cousin aswel..If ever one was in my shoes they would maybe understand why.Ethan has been looking for Lesley but couldn't find him because I asked his PA to lie and say he can't find him..The story behind that you will know sooner.

Interesting love story of my brother

I found this interesting and I thought I should share it for couples to read and those who would eventually get married.... *"Honey, Can You Wake Me Up If I Die?"* This was the question my husband asked me like a joke on our first date, after I had said "yes" to him. I quickly dismissed it with a proclamation of "God forbid!!" and he quickly glossed over it with sweet words as he noticed a slight change in my countenance and we forgot about it. George is the kind of man that every woman would dream to marry because there is no dull moment with him. He is very jovial, friendly, tall, handsome, caring, kind, but not so wealthy and yet comfortably well to do and above all a serious prayerful Christian. God showed him to me in my 200level and I waited for him till 5years later when he had finished his NYSC and start to work with a firm. George and I used to go for ministration together almost every weekend as he would always have invitations to preach in different programs. It wasn't a problem to me because I knew him as an Evangelist when God told me things about my husband back then in school. I was ready for the ministry work though I thought it would be a full-time one. My George was amongst those that would rather give honorarium after preaching than taking honorarium from those who invited him to preach (Paul the Apostle was his role model). In the 7th year of our marriage, hell was let loose and all of a sudden he lost his job as a result of economic challenges in his firm. This resulted to them letting go of some of their staff of which he was among those that were affected. I was just a fashion designer and so we all relied on my income, but of course it was a difficcult time for my husband, especially as he was still applying for vacancies in other organisations. After 7 months, he got another job, but unlike the former, he had little or no time again for his devotional study and ministry. I tried advising him to quit the job but he promised to do that as soon as the one he is expecting clicks. So we all hoped that it was just a "part time job" as he calls it. The job was so demanding that my husband even worked on Saturdays which he never joked with before, because he used to spend almost 80% of the day to seek God's face. It got me worried but when I talked about it, he said it was a part time job. Truth be told, gradually I began to notice that "My G" as I fondly call him had started growing cold spiritually and then I Kew I had a serious war to fight. So, I began to pray and fast as much as my strength could carry me. As time went by, my husband started withdrawing from home to the point that even the kids noticed it. I started crying to my Lord, as even the Saturday work which used to be half day became late as 10:30pm. On our matrimonial bed, we slept as though we were mere room mates. Then I knew my home was on fire and intensified in my prayers. One day, he came home so early and by the time I returned, he was already socked in tears. When he noticed my presence, he quickly held my legs with his face down and pleaded for Mercy. Tears dropped down my eyes but I never knew why he was crying so I helped him up as he started releasing the atomic bombs. George had broken our marital vow. It all started at a staff meeting and then grew to dating which his boss claimed to be casual friendship and mere dates. On one particular Saturday morning, she came to the office and pleaded with him to help her fix up something in her apartment as she wanted to collect some thing she has forgoten. She claimed she didn't want to bother him after work or spend money on such a little task and so they went together. She was his boss by the way? Hmmmm, after fixing the appliance, of course it was done in few minutes and then from compliment of the house to the compliment of the hair and body and then the unimaginable happened. *They went to bed together!* It was a horror story to me as I shouted, screamed, cried and I opened my eyes to look at him again and be sure it was not my imagination. *I saw a spiritual giant that has been crushed.* A man of God that was lifelessly dead in the Spirit. _Just then, the great 10 years old question was recalled to my memory_ *"Honey, can you wake me up if I die?"* Based on recalled understanding, I muttered "yes to myself" as a reply. We cried together for hours and continued later in the mid night because we had to cover up things from the kids. By the help of God, we started building again and God began to heal us together till I was able to wake him up from the "spiritual death". Marriage is a very sweet relationship when you are married to your friend or the right person meant for you. But there is a great question which couples need to ask themselves. That is, *"Honey, can you wake me up if I Die?*" You may meet me very successful in business, but a day may come that the business die, can you wake me up? *I may be on fire as a sister now, but after having 3 children with so many responsibilities I may be growing cold spiritually, can you wake me up?* It may not be as a result of infidelity, *it may be an unguarded hour, it may be family matters, whichever it is that left me dead, can you wake me up*? Think about it!! We are meant for each other, *so let's fight for each other together.* As the Lord helps us, we can rise together again!

Falling in love with the wrong man

The music coming from the club could be heard just few metres away from where Helia stood. The atmosphere was all choking due to the strong smell of both alcohol and cigarette smoke. She covered her nose with her left palm trying to meet up with the security guard. The invitation card Benedicta had given her was still stuck in her jeans pocket. She had a quick glance at her wristwatch to ensure she was right on time. Yes she was. "Your face doesn't look familiar. Are you some new girl here? " He asked just as she showed the card. "I am no new girl here. I am just here on invitation. Will you let me in or not?" She asked impatiently. The guard teased her silently and opened the door wide. Though she couldn't make out what he had said due to how low he had mumbled to himself but she definitely knew it wasn't good. Her hands itched to give him a slap. She hadn't slapped anyone that week so she doesn't mind slapping him first. Controlling her anger, she removed her gaze from him toward the club. The man issue wasn't what was bothering her that moment. She had other stuffs to think about for crying out loud. "Hey baby girl. You made it at last. I almost thought you threw away that card as soon as I turned my back toward you. I am so happy you're coming out if your shell" Benedicta told her with a naughty smile on her face just as she approached her. She had lifted her glass of champagne to her lips afterwards. "I don't have time for this and you know it. We both know who I came to see" The young spinster nodded in frustration. "Mr Blackface isn't here yet. I spoke to him few minutes ago. He will be here in an hour" She confessed still sipping her drink. Helia opened her mouth in shock and banged the counter almost spilling the champagne bottle. "Benedicta you lied to me! " She barked out at her in annoyance. "Chill girl. You don't have to fall the bottle. I am sorry I lied okay? If I hadn't done that, you wouldn't have showed up early" "You should not have done that. You know well I don't stand places like this" "I don't need to be reminded on that over and over again. I only felt you work too much and you needed a little rest. You need fun girl. You don't have to drink. Just hang around " Hello had already made up her mind not to stay. Nothing in this world would make her stay one more second there, not even her best friend. She rose up without saying a word, grabbed her bag and tried heading toward the door but Benedicta caught her hand. "I know how important that property is to you Helia. I know how much you'll love to fulfill your mum's last wish. I know how hard you're trying to impress your lawyer just to proof you're responsible but that doesn't stop you from living your life. Due to this conditions placed on you, you have gotten so boring. You've stopped drinking, partying like old times. You've stop flirting with men. That's a miracle I must say because everyone knew you could drink like hell. You were mostly known as a complete drunk. Maybe that was why your mum places this conditions on you" Helia nodded at what her friend had said and sat back down. "My elder brother is after that property. He won't be of any good use to it if he gets it. All he would do is squander it and end up back to square one. He can't even take care of himself talk of handling such a big responsibility. Since my dad died, my mum has been my only support. Her hospital has been of great help to me and my brother. She worked and toiled for years just to erect it. I will just prefer it if I run it myself and try investing in the hospital. The chance of the hospital collapsing is high " "I understand you friend. We have been friends for long but I will prefer it more if you patiently wait for the lawyer and have some fun meanwhile your mum didn't place that strict condition on you just to stop you from having fun. She only wanted you to be more responsible. Come on, a cool music is playing. Let's dance" Benedicta said trying to pull her off the chair she sat. Helia withdrew her hands immediately. "No. Not at all. I will rather watch you dance " She replied trying to send her off. "Seriously?! You are boring" She nagged before rushing off to join the others. Helia heaved a sigh of relief as soon as the lady was gone. She was certainly something else. She stared at her watch and grumbled realizing there was forty five more minutes to go. Was she just going to sit at a place while such time elapsed? As she chose to take a thorough inspection of this uncomfortable environment, Her eyes fell on a handsome figure who gambled with some wild guys at the corner of the bar smiling the whole time. She got a little confused seeing him and stared on having a feeling she had seen him somewhere before. But where? She tried recalling but couldn't. He threw his last card and laugh maniacally as he hit the jackpot. The other gamblers gave him a despised stare. They nagged under their breaths and reluctantly released the money. His friends came from no where and drew him closely for a group hug singing songs of victory. Their voices went higher and higher disrupting the peace of the club. Helia watched with a frown wondering if they were the only one in the club. They had no respect at all. One of the guy's friends rudely snatched the money from him greedily but he didn't react negatively. Prostitutes lingered round them with their usual seductive look greedily eyeing the bundle of money they had. The boys grabbed hold of one not thinking twice having in mind to spent the night with them. The one who had won sneaked out from their mist and approached the counter where Helia sat trying to get away from the prostitutes. He signalled for the bar man and ordered a bottle of rum. She got surprised wondering why on earth he would want to drink something that hot. How was he even going to drink that? If he doesn't end up leaving for his home using his head and not legs, she would surely ban all rums. Watching him gulp down his third glass, she heard him bulge out loud making her irritated. His eyes was blood shot and his breath stunk. Shook her head at his stupidity and checked her wristwatch one more time praying her lawyer comes in a zip. "Why are you watching me? " He asked her just as she grumbles realizing she still had twenty more minute to go. She threw him a stern look and ignored him. "O! Boy" he exclaimed. "Please bar man get her a shot. I'll pay" He ordered for bar man taking a sip of his rum. She turned back to him startled. "Who? " she wanted to know hoping he wasn't referring to her. "The lady beside you " he joked letting out a laugh. She frowned. "Which other lady is here aside you? Even if there is a lady here aside you, I would prefer ordering you a drink and not her" He sounded so friendly to her. She didn't like that at all. "I don't drink. Sorry" She refused the offer politely. The barman brought the drink anyway and placed it before her. She gave him a cold stare and pushed it off rudely. "Come on Benedicta, where are you? " she said in her mind feeling restless now. "You are one strange lady. Other ladies come to club to drink an waste away time but you come here to act holy. You should be an actress" He drained down his fifth glass at this statement. "But it's alright. I deal with indoors ladies like you. You should know well how many ladies I have come across. I know them all pretty well. Both the crafty, wise, naive, boring. Come on, I know ways to handle each and everyone of them. You aren't an exception dear" She rolled her eyes without interest. The guy seemed to be a parrot. He had no shame to say all those things about himself. He was not the guy she wanted to meet anyway. "Anyway, you seem to be a fun girl. I am very sure you'll make my night. How many shots can you take tonight? I am sure you can't take up to ten. Girls are so lazy when it comes to stuffs like this " "You are silly. Who do you think I am anyway? A boredom? I can even take fifteen shots right in front of you. I am very good at drinking " She finally showed her true colors with a boastful stare. He opened his eyes wide and smirked. "Let's make it twenty. If you win, you'll get twenty dollars" She laughed at his offer. "I don't need your money and you can't tempt me either cause I don't drink anymore. I don't also make stupid bets" She snapped at him and stared at her watch wondering what the hell was happening to her. She had almost given in for crying out loud. "There is fifteen more minutes to go" He lets out a giggle and mumbled something under his breath which sounded like an insult to her. She got annoyed at this. "What did you just say? " she asked harshly. "What did you think I said loser?," She twisted her nose and gave in finally. "Alright. I accept your challenge. I will drink seven shots only because I don't want to get drunk. My lawyer will be here soon" He nodded at her terms. " Fine but the last shot will be decided by me. No one ever ends this game with a happily ever after" She smirked and asked for a vodka. It was brought toward her immediately. Her eyes rolled back and her heart beat skipped. She was having a second thought about this but her mind was being stubborn. She knew she could do this. It had been a long time since she had last ordered a bottle of alcohol and she had also given up drinking. Drinking this now would be like going back to square one. She sighed and calmed herself knowing she would drink responsibly. She will try as much as possible not to get drunk. She poured out the first glass and threw him a smile before gulping it down. Her throat seemed to have rejected it at first. She coughed out loudly but tried not giving up. She turned toward her best friend and caught sight of her swirling round and round a pole. She went ahead and took the second, then the third, then the fourth. As soon as she took the fifth, her head got drowsy. She got worried and thought of stopping but this strange young man annoying stare prevented her. She knew she couldn't give up. She got a grip of herself and took the fifth and sixth. The guy smiled and poured out some of his hot rum in a tumbler urging her to drink it all. "You don't mind having some of my hot whisky do you? " he had asked pushing it toward her. Her eyes were already shutting and her vision git blurry. Her head was spinning. She began seeing things that weren't even real. Grabbing hold of the tumbler with shaky hands, she tried gulping it down her throat but someone grabbed it from her immediately coming to her rescue. "Helia, what have you done? Don't you realize what you have caused now? You can lose your inheritance due to this stupid mistake of yours. The lawyer will be here any minute" "I am not drunk. Let me have the last shot and win. Please " she pleaded trying to grab hold of the glass cup but Benedicta spilled it contents purposely. "you have ruined yourself. We have to get you out of here before he comes. We can't let him see you like this" she suggested helping her up but the lady was so dead drunk to stand properly that she'd slumped before they moved an inch. She wasn't really sure of how she felt that next morning but she'd feel her hand banging so hard as if someone was trying to escape from her skull. She let out a cry of pain and sat up opening her eyes slowly. Looking round her, she caught sight of her room furniture all round her. The room looked so familiar. Her family portrait was hung on for wall adjacent to the bed. Her memory got clearer now. She was actually in her own room. Slipping her legs in her slippers, she walked down the stairs and caught sight of Benedicta setting the table for breakfast. "You weren't well so I decided to make you something to eat" She explained knowing she would ask anyway. "It's okay. My head is hurting so terribly and I feel so much pain all over. What happened? " she asked sitting one of of the dining chairs massaging her temple. "You got drunk yesterday night" Her eyes lit with surprise. "What? " "And unfortunately you lost it. Sorry Helia. It's over now" Her friend had informed her in a low tone with her words mixed with emotions. Helia felt tears flow down her eyes and she sat slowly on the staircase "No! This can't be" FIVE MONTHS AGO A young woman in her fifties drove into a compound which was surrounded by a small afforestation cutting it from other homes. The area was cold and silent. Only the sound of her engine could be heard that late afternoon. As soon as she alighted, she walked into her building and dropped her car keys. "Hello mum. You came early today" Her son has said jogging down the stairs. "Yeah! I have to leave for Lara's baby shower and as well as check on Helia. Is she upstairs? " He hissed. "That's the last place she will be. She is out clubbing with her friends, getting high and smooching men. That's what she loves. I also think she is hanging out with that Jamaican guy... " "You just shut up! I beg you just shut up! " His mother urges with an angry look. Sweat sprinkled down her forehead. Why Helia again? What is she needs from her? Drowning in her sorrow, she eyed her phone which was already ringing non stop. "Hello" she greeted with a dull tone. "Hi Miss Kim. Actually the baby shower has almost began. Where are you? " She asked impatiently. "I am on my way. Sorry" she apologized politely. "No need to apologize. I just wanted to ensure everything is fine" "Everything is alright" The line went dead. Dropping it in her bag, she felt her head ache and her brain vibrate. She sat with her eyes tightly shut trying to calm herself down. She felt just as if her head was about to explode that moment. She felt herself half dead already. The pain she felt was unbearable. "Mum are you okay? " Chris asked with concern. "Yes. Yes. I am fine" "Helia, how many more bottles will you drink? You're gonna go crazy you know " Benedicta warned feeling worried for her. "Come on girl, let me drink. That's the only thing I get to do anyway" she explained opening another bottle of China. "Hold on! Isn't that Sterlyn with Deborah? " Her second friend Maddy had asked staring at a tall young you grinding a lady. Helia frowned at their sight and chose to ignore. "Yes it's them. We have both broken up anyway since he refused to but a condom " She explained. "O! That's lame. Why will you break up with such a handsome guy just because he refused to get a condom? " Maddy asked with shock. "You see how stupid you are Maddy. He wanted to get me pregnant lady. You think I am that naive? " "I know you aren't naive but why will you dump a guy as handsome as he is? Don't you know how many ladies are yearning to have him? " "That's one of the reasons I hate him. I don't want a lady's guy" She took a sip of her drink. "I am actually thinking of taking a break from men. I don't want a guy in my life right now. I am not ready to fall sick. If I fall in love with a guy and try all I can to keep him, I might end up getting myself in trouble or have you forgotten Florencia who got Aids just because she refused to stay away from that tout?" "No I haven't. I am sure she has learnt her lesson" Helia nodded. "Yeah she had but unfortunately the hard way" She replied pouring out her drink again. . "About your mother, I thought she wanted you to spend time learning more about her business. Why do you spend all your time clubbing rather than helping her? She entrusted this responsibility to you" Helia hissed. "That's shit. I am not ready to take over anyone's business. I am not even interested in running anyone's business. I want my own business. I want my own company. That fascinates me more" "The hospital is your mum's hard work. She has been running for years" "Yes I know but can't Chris do it? He is a guy anyway and men do it better. I am not interested in running any business for now. I want to just party man!!!! I want to be free like a bird! I want to have fun and feel useful to myself. I prefer it this way" "Helia... " "O! Please drop this topic already. If you want me to do this then I will but after five years time or more. She can handle the business by herself for now not that she will die tomorrow" She told her friend stubbornly before catching sight of a wealthy looking guy approaching her. She smirked and pecked him lightly on the cheek before walking off with him. Benedicta and Maddy watched on. , There was a huge bang on the living room door just as the family settled down for dinner. Mrs Kim weakly asked her son to start his meal and approached the door. She had been taking her medications and eating on diet as instructed to her by the doctor but her health was getting no better. She felt herself die slowly everyday. She knew her end was near that was why she did all she could to bring the family together and ensure all would be fine when she's gone but Helia kept making things difficult for her. She wasn't even sure if to call her prodigal son responsible. Her two matured children showed no sign of responsibility at all or interest in whatever she does. This baffled her a lot. Since she discovered she had cancer. She tried introducing Helia to her employees and had also tried making her realize how important it was for her to run her hospital when she was gone but how wrong she was. The young lady can't do it. She had no interest at all. Anyway back to the door, she slid it open and there was the spilt brat drunk as usual waving at her like child with a big grin. "Good evening mommy. I am back home" She announced her arrival still looking unnecessarily happy. "Helia! " Her mum roared out causing her heart to leap a bit. "Where have you been? " "Well I... I... I... went to hang out with my friends and...and... and....afterwards... I... I... I...came home and... and... and... my mum won't let me in" "I am so disappointed in you. I don't blame you anyway. I blame myself. I gave you just too much freedom. My mum warned me against pampering you two but I never listened. I trusted my kids so much. I never knew I would be the cause of your ruin" "Huh... Mum, I understand what you mean but you shouldn't see me as an irresponsible person. That's not right at all. I am very responsible mother. Very responsible. Really" They both exchanged a long stare. Chris threw into his mouth a peanut before rushing upstairs tired of the family drama. "Alright. Let me agree with the fact that you're responsible. Tomorrow my administrator will be coming to show you some few things. No partying. No getting drunk. Nothing except work" Her mum instructed. "O! Come on mother. I don't want to work. I don't want to... " she declined walking with a wobbly pace into the house. "You will definitely realize the relevance of this soon dear. I promise" The next day stacked with a lots of files, Helia was instructed by the administrator to make out the amount of bills owed by the hospital for the government according to the memorandum. Due to her intelligence she got it easily but her heart wasn't actually in the work. She wasn't even paying full attention. While hallowing in self pity, she got a message from Benedicta telling her the rich guy she had made out with the previous had come around asking for her. This baffled her. "Helia I will like you to go through this files. The hospital have been in debt for years and we have contacted these few banks for some loan just to cover up the debt. We have successfully paid part of it but not all. According to these documents, you should be able to know who we're in debt with and those we aren't so as not to be cheated later in future by fraudsters" Her mum explained. Helia only nodded. "Yeah I understand but i will prefer you keep it. I don't want them" she confessed lazily. "I can't keep them Helia. These should... " "Why do you keep arguing mum? You're acting as if you will die tomorrow. Don't worry, handle the business for now. All will be fine" She said rudely to her mum before picking up her cellphone. "I am going out with Benedicta today " She turned toward her mum and day her acting a little bit strange. Blood began oozing out of her nose. This got her nervous. "Mum are you alright? " she asked in a panick. "Yes. I am fine"

how joy visited me at the wrong time

Joy and Akpan left finally made to go while I saw them off to my gate. I came into my room some minute later and laid down flat on my bed. I thought so much about my few days in school and all the problems I had faced. I didn’t know what crime it was to love, is love something bad? In my thought I slept off and went to dream land, I can’t remember what I dreamt about. I woke up around 8pm and decided to log into Facebook. At least if I can’t see Joy physically, I can see her online. I checked the active friends, and luckily for me Joy was online. I adjusted my glasses as I sent a message to her.
Me:” hy dear”
Joy:” Hey my guy, how you doing?”
Me:” Am fine now”.
Joy:”I just told my mom about what happened today ”
Me:” Hmm, you know what baffles me?”
Joy:” What?”
Me:” The way our parent support us. Its incredible. ”
Joy:” its got me surprised too o, maybe its the lord’s doing.”
Me:”Lord’s doing?? Then that means God supports us too”I replied her smiling.
Joy:”lol, my guy am coming, let me go check what am cooking so it won’t get burned”
Me:” OK be fast o ”
Joy:” if I Dont meet you when I come back ehnnn”.
Me:” what will you do?” I asked but she didnt reply which signified she is already gone. I stood up from the bed and walked to the toilet to pee, I was just walking pass my mom’s room when I heard her talking in low tone with my dad.
Mom:” Are you sure we are doing the right thing ? Are you sure we aren’t being unsecured by allowing them date themselves?” She asked while I adjusted more closely to their door and placed my ear on it.
Dad:” No, nothing will happening, remember what the reverend father said, that we shouldn’t deprive him of any girl else he will return to his former self ” he replied while I smiled and adjusted my glasses.
Dad:” Also remember it took series of prayers from you and the priest to make him like this and now you are being worried. My dear this is a good thing to us.” He continued.
Mom:” But I won’t want the girl in trouble dear ”
Dad:” I know Gabriel, he will protect her. If he starts, am sure the whole school won’t hold him. ” he said as he laughed a little.
Mom:” please Dont pray he start with that his notorious style of life. ” my mom said while my dad laughed out loud this time.
Dad:” Dont worry dear he won’t, he is now a changed guy. ”
Mom:” I pray so.” She said again and that was the end of their discussion. I smiled as I walked to the toilet. So this people actually went to a priest just because I refused to associate myself with girls ” hmm parents can worry over nothing.” I thought to myself.
I finished from the toilet and went back to my room. I picked my phone and continued with my chatting. Joy had already sent me four messages.
Joy:” see your head, so you went away. Get ready to face my wrath.” Was the first message.
Joy:” you aren’t still back?” Was the second.
Joy:” Gabrieeel” was the third.
Joy:” I hate this guy ” was the last which came in about a minute ago.
Me:” and I love this girl ” I replied smiling.
Joy:” Big head, where were you?”
Me:” I went to London to see the Queen ” I replied her.
Me:” So what were you cooking?” I asked her.
Joy:” You haven’t answered my question, where were you?”
Me:” I went to urinate ”
Joy:” I was cooking guess”
Me:” What type of food is guess? I haven’t tested that before ”
Joy:” oh my God, what kind of a guy is this, I meant you should guess what I was cooking”
Me:” okkkk, now I get, rice, beans, yam, any of the three.”
Joy:” wizard, I was actually cooking beans ” she replied.
Me:”You see, I know. ”
Joy:” Gabriel, Dont you do sport?”
Me:” I Dont get.”
Joy:” You Dont wait for football training after school, why?”
Me:” Am new in the school now, Dont worry I will join after my suspension.”
Joy:” so you can actually play ball?”
Me:” Yeah I can play ball, I can goal keep, I also play tennis. ”
Joy:” jack of all trade, which one do you do best?”
Me:” I can play ball”
Joy:” ok , as for me I play tennis”
Me:” wooow, at least you can do something”
Joy:” Thunder fire you.”
Me:” Joy do you know I will still have to wash the school toilet after my suspension?”
Joy:” No, I can’t allow you do that.”
Me:” But sorry am doing it”
Joy:” No!!! I will help you”
Me:” And I won’t allow you do that also”
Joy:” Shut up am doing it for you and you can’t stop me”
Me:” watch and see”
Joy:”Dont try me o”
Me:” OK ma. But you see I still wonder why Akpan did not disclose Charles to me”.
Joy:” but he said he warned you now”
Me:”. Yeah he did but he never told me it was Charles”
Joy:” that could put him in trouble also dear”
Me:” hmm maybe ”
Joy:” That reminds me Gabriel, my mom told me you do scare girls away back then in her school”
Me:” Yeah, but that was then”
Joy:” Why should you scare them away, are they not humans?”
Me:” Abeg leave that one. That Charles will regret all this I promise”
Joy:” see guy just leave him alone o, Dont put yourself in trouble again o, am even wondering how I will stay next week without you”
Me:” No need to worry, my spirit is with thee”
====>That was just one of the numerous chats we had during my suspension. Joy was kind enough to send me all the notes via WhatsApp and she also visited me again. I did not useless my stay at home as I engaged in reading my books and also helping Eunice in doing some house chores. I always asked for update from Cynthia as toy surprise there wasn’t any new news. Finally my suspension came to an end and I prepared to go back to school the next week. It was now three weeks after I resumed. I woke up early that Monday, rushed to greet my mom in the kitchen and headed to the bathroom for my bath. I finished bathing and went into my room to dress up as usual I completed it by putting on my ever unstable glasses. I didn’t wait for my sister as I took my money from my mom, ate my food and walked to school. I reached the school after about 15 minute walk, the first thing my eye caught was the Camry car that was just coming into the school. To my surprise, Sandra was one coming out from it. I smiled to her and continued my walk into the school compound. I walked slowly into my class and it was already half filled. Joy, Charles and Akpan were already there with some students.
Joy:” oh my God, Gabriel” she shouted as she came and jumped on me not knowing when she did it.
Akpan:” Welcome back bro” he greeted while I also hugged him.
Me:” Thanks man, Joy you almost fell me down o” I said while she just laughed.
Joy:” Have missed you dear”
Me:” Dont say that here because you can’t tell which of them is with an audio recorder.” I said while Charles turned to me sharply. He had been pretending he did not see me all this while. He touched his specks while I adjusted my glasses as our eyes met.

I smiled towards him and sat down in my front sit. Sandra came in some minutes later smiling, she looked at me and bursted into laughter. It was meant to be embarrassing but it had no effect on me.
Sandra:”Hy dear, so you are back so soon?” She asked but I didn’t reply I. I brought out my assembly note and waited for the assembly.
Sandra:”Am I not talking to somebody?” She asked again but I didn’t reply her.
Sandra:”I can see you…”
Joy:”Won’t you just leave him alone?” Joy asked, she had come to my rescue.
Sandra:” I wasn’t talking to you”
Joy:”I just wonder when you will stop imposing yourself on guys. He doesn’t like you so leave him alone” joy said again placing her hands in her skirt pocket.
Sandra:” What did you just say?” Sandra asked as she lifted up her right hand to slap joy but unfortunately for her, joy caught her hands in the air.
Joy:” Who do you really think you are?” Joy asked as she pushed Sandra’s hand and she fell into the chair. I stood up in a bid to separate them.
Me:” Joy, let her be, You can’t tell if she got an audio recorder in her pocket ” I said while joy smiled.
Sandra:” Joy you will surely regret this.” Sandra threatened.
Joy:” I waiting for that time.” Joy replied her and walked back to her side of the class. I turned to the other side of the class and saw Akpan smiling, I also smiled as I adjusted my glasses.
Sandra:” And you watch her to this to me”
Me:” As what, what are you to me? See this one o, I even wished she beat the hell out of you”
Sandra:” I can see you suspension haven’t taught you anything” she said again but I didn’t reply her.
The assembly bell came some minutes later, as usual, the students rushed out to the assembly. I walked slowly as I hate to mingle with the crowd. We did the normal routine and as usual the principal addressed us. He highlighted the school rules and regulations again, I knew it was because of me. The assembly was normal and we soon marched back to our class to begin the day job. I remembered I will have to wash the school toilet during the break period and it irritated me.
Class rep:” Attention class, Mrs Jagun said I should inform you guys that we will be having an impromptu test during her period, so I urge you guys to prepare” he announced some minutes later. I smiled again as I knew it was because of me, all thanks to Joy, she had helped me with all the notes and trust myself, I read them all.
Miss Linda was the first teacher for the day. She came with her long cane and she was also wearing a smile, as usual we all stood up to greet her.
Miss Linda:”Good morning all of you, and welcome back to you Gabriel. I hope you would be careful now as you can’t tell who has an audio recorder in the pocket” she said smiling at me while I smiled back. Charles on his own side removed his specks uneasily.
Miss Linda:”Remember to collect previous notes from your friends and copy” she said again while I nodded meanwhile I already had all the notes. She did her teaching and went out when her period was over but signalled to me to come to her class. I stood up and went immediately .
Miss Linda:” Welcome back boy” she said relaxing on her chair while I nodded.
Miss Linda:” I hope you have learned your lesson now?” She asked again.
Me:” Yes ma”
Miss Linda:” Just want to tell you to be careful of all your mates, you cant trust any of them” she said while I nodded.
Miss Linda:” be very careful” she said again while I nodded . I later left her office and went back to my class only to meet my mates tearing out sheets of papers and heading to the lab. I knew it was because of the test so I quickly tore out my own sheet and joined them.
Joy:” I hope you read your notes?”
Me’” No, will you teach me?” I asked smiling.
Joy:” I know you read.” She concluded and ran out while I walked to the lab.
To our surprise, the questions were already on the board, they were five questions, to me five very easy questions.
Mrs Jagun:” Note this test add 30 mark to your result” she said while we settled down immediately. I took my pen and started writing while she was updating her lesson note. Within 20 minutes, I was done with the test and started to cross check.
Mrs Jagun:” Good morning sir” I heard her greet someone which made me look up. It was the proprietor. We also stood up to greet.
Proprietor: ” Yes, good morning children, Jagun, I want to see you in my office” he said smiling.
Mrs Jagun:” OK sir. All of you should summit” she said to us.
Proprietor: ” No, let them mark it themselves, write the correction on the board and let them mark it” he said while Mrs Jagun face fell.
Mrs Jagun:” No sir, they won’t mark it well.” She tried protesting but the proprietor didn’t agree.
Proprietor: ” with the correction, anyone that marks nonsense should be sent to me” he said again while Mrs Jagun walked slowly to the board and made to write the correction ” Why is she uncomfortable with that” I thought.
Mrs Jagun: ” Exchange your script with the nearest person to you” she said. Luckily for me I was staying close to Bernard. I gave him my paper and he gave me his while we all started marking as Mrs Jagun wrote the correction.
Proprietor: ” OK now come to my office” he said after she was done with the correction.
We marked our papers with reference to the correction on the board, the marking guide was also on the board. Bernard tried as he was able to get 14 out of 20, he passed me my script and to my surprise I got 18 out of 20. Suddenly Akpan bursted into laughter.
Akpan:” Behold the peacock got 2 out of 20 ” he said raising Sandra script up while the class bursted into laughter as Sandra tried to collect her script from him.
Mary:” I can’t believe,Sandra, what happened? You do get all in biology now? ” she asked with a face of concern but got no reply. I stood up and walked to Joy.
Me:” What did you get?”
Joy:” 16 and you?” She said smiling.
Me:” 18 oooo” I said to her laughing while she opened her mouth in disbelief.
Joy:” Am proud of you dear” she said smiling . I quickly rushed back to my seat while Mrs Jagun walked in almost immediately.
Mrs Jagun:” OK now let me record. Who scored 20?” She asked but no one got up.
Mrs Jagun:” Who scored 19?” She asked again but no reply.
Mrs Jagun:” Hmm, who scored 18?” She asked again while I got up slowly. The whole lab was immediately filled with applauds for me.
Mrs Jagun:” Who marked your script?” She asked frowning.
Me:” Bernard” I replied while she turned to Bernard.
Mrs Jagun:” Bring it let me see” she said while I passed the script to her. She looked at it critically but found no fault. She gave it to me back.
Mrs Jagun:” Who scored 17?” She continued and Akpan got up. Another round of clapping followed.
Mrs Jagun:” Who scored 16?” She asked while Charles, Joy, and Sarah got up. We clapped again. By now Mrs Jagun was now restless as she dropped her recording pen.
Mrs Jagun:” Who scored below ten?” She asked again while Mary and Sandra got up.
Mrs Jagun:” what did you score Mary?” She asked.
Mary:” Nine ma”
Mrs Jagun:” And you Sandra?”
Sandra:” TWO” she replied sharply with arms akimbo.
Mrs Jagun:” Dont worry class, am not using this test again” she said after a while. Akpan sprang up immediately.
Akpan:” Why ma?” He asked sharply while Mrs Jagun turned to him with angry eyes, I adjusted my glasses as I smiled to myself.
