Rushing home as fast as i could, i zoomed
past ahmed who was still in the process of
raising his hand in the air and shout “Oga
sky”, this time before he could utter “O” i
was already in front of our door .
Jessy was not in the house, her room was
my first port of call on arriving home.
I headed for my own room, dropping my
phones on the bed collapsed my weight on
the bed hearing it give out a soft creaking
My face was on my palms, and my eyes
fixed on the two phones that lay before me.
The iphone6 dwarfing my iphone4 by a
couple of inches, its shiny gold colour was
more than beautiful.
“Have you seen what you have caused
me?” I questioned the innocent phone that
just seemed to ignore my question.
My mind was drawn back to few minutes
backwards as Amanda walked gracefully
into the hotel room clapping her hands in a
slow and steady rhythmized pattern which
her high heel shoes giving a back up
The thunderous slap she landed on my
face after i slipped into my boxer, got down
from bed and wanted to muster an
explanation that i don’t even know how
that was supposed to work, but my
predicament was beyond thinking.
“You stupid boy” She barked gazing directly
into my eyes, i could see her eyes getting a
Before i could say ‘wait’ another slap
covered my face sending tiny sparks off
Nancy just stood there, covering her unclad
body with the white bed spread mopping at
Amanda with a pleading facial expression.
“And you w—e. i thought you were my
friend”, she calmly approached Nancy who
stood just after the bed looking like a greek
My mind switched off to whatever they
were saying, I wore back my clothes in a
strangely slow manner stealing little
glances at them just enough to see
amanda pointing a shaking finger at Nancy
who just watched with words flying out of
her mouth. “Don’t ever come to my house
I picked my phones **I no go leave my
sweet new phone na, i worked for
it**walked out of the hotel room met again
by the searching eyes of the receptionist
who kept her eyes on me until i was out of
the premises walking briskly, this was no
time to think in my situation.
“Sky! Sky!!… Come down here” Amanda’s
voice thundered from the sitting room
sending an unnecessary scare down my
I dragged myself down, eyes fixed on the
Her legs were thumping on the floor with
hands akimbo, beads of sweat clearly
showed on her face washing out her make
ups. Her tank top clearly allowing some
over contoured cleavage that seemed as if
they were just peeping, the black leggings
hugged her tightly, I don’t why but Amanda
was still a goddess.
“How could you?” She barked punching me
on my chest.
My vocal cord went dumb, i opened my
mouth but no words could come out.
“But why exactly is Amanda reacting this
way, its not like we have any relationship
going on or something” my heart yarned.
“Am sorry” I managed to say even without
knowing why and for what. If she could get
hurt that i bleeped someone else that
means she wont even allow me marry my
“Shut up” she thundered with another slap
landing squarely on my face making move
back two steps.
“Sky you don enter am today naa”
Amanda shouted and barked clearly
showing she was hurt and heartbroken.
And the fact that this was my Step mum
and not my girl friend gave me goose
My lust for material things have landed me
to a point where i wish i never did all the
things i did.
Amanda snatched the iphone6 from hand,
looked at it front and back with pouted lips
and obvious contempt. one could think the
phone was her enemy here and not me.
“So sky it was because of this nonsense
that you stooped so low to betray me like
that. Why didn’t you come to me?”
Amanda’s shrieking voice pierced my heart
with scare and remorse and i dont even
know why i should be sorry.
Before another “Am so…” could make it’s
way from the back of my throat to the tip
of my lips amanda sent the phone to hell.
A crashing sound followed by echoing
resounds of tiny glasses filled my ears, my
face was dragged downwards as i watched
the debris with an apple logo, tiny bits of it
could be seen scattered round the floor.
“Chisooooooos!!!” i yelled with tears
forming at the back of my head but it was
impossible to shed.
“Everything i worked for gone within
seconds just before me”
The scare i felt was replaced with anger,
the sorry i felt became rage.
Amanda stood there watching me, she was
suddenly as calm as a lake, the lines that
once filled her face was now gone taking
her face back to the default setting.
I was confused, angry and tired. I felt an
impulse to slap Amanda to pieces but what
will that achieve and papa would literally
send me to hell fire if he finds out.
My hands with a mind of it’s own grabbed
amanda by the neck, a threatening blow
pointing to her face.
My hands were shaking, body was quaking
and whole body now drenched in a sudden
sweat that felt alien.
My words were lost, Amanda’s eyes were
filled with remorse and fear of what might
“Sky stop it!” Thats a new voice totally and
am sure amanda coudn’t say it with my
hand on her neck.
I titled my face sharply to the direction of
the voice and Jessy stood there, mouth
open, eyes filled with searching surprise,
fear and questions.
“Sky i said stop it” Jessy shrieked again
this time looking directly into my eyes.
my hands lost their grip on Amanda, i
walked over to Jessy with my tearful eyes
looking at her can see hers to where
becoming tearful too.
I wish i could just tell her everything and
unshackle myself from all this, i wish she
could just hug me now and tell me to calm
I could hear faint sound of Amanda’s voice
uttering “Am sorry”.
“I am going back with you on monday to
nsukka” I announced to Jessy with those
searching eyes trying to read my thoughts
Ignoring Amanda, i left both of them in the
sitting room and matched up to my room.
I hated my life now.
