“I don die today oooo” i shouted in my
mind as i pushed amanda up trying as
much as possible not to make any noise in
Amanda got up arranging and repackaging
her ruffled leggings and top, wiping her
face with her palm and trying to appear
This was one of the situations that jnr sky
will fall flat within seconds.
I pulled up my boxer like its a fast boxer
Grabbed my singlet that was laying
carelessly on the bed.
To say i was confused would be an
“How am i gonna cover this mess now?”
my mind queried..
A sudden sweat born out of shear
confusion engulfed my whole body like it
was poured on me from above.
“Sky quick enter the bed and cover yourself
with your blanket like you are sick” Amanda
said in a very calm but strange way.
**Choi omo see sharp thinking ooo.**
I slid under the blanket immediately
dragging it up to my shoulder level curling
myself a bit under it, wiping my face
vigorously the edge of my singlet, close my
eyes half way then put on that ‘I no well
Amanda bends beside me and was like
pretending to be checking me out.
“Sky when did this your sickness start”?
“Have you taken panadol, should i go boil
hot water and make tea for you”
She sang on rubbing her hands on my
I could hear papa’s footsteps growing
bolder and nearer until finally he emerged,
he was smartly dressed as always clad in a
lacy jumper of interwoven green and gold
design and a red traditional cap as always.
Could see him standing in front of the door
for a little more than 4seconds watching
Amanda display her undying care for my
“Whats wrong with Nnam” He blurted out
stepping into the room with the scent of his
Cologne filling everywhere.
“Nnam whats the matter?” he addressed
the question to me now on getting to the
edge of the bed beside his wife.
“He has fever, i just got in now and saw
him lying down” Amanda answered. I dont
know if it was to the first question or the
“When did you fall sick, i called your sister
yesterday she didn’t mention anything
about you being sick” Papa said in a little
bit surprised tone.
“It started in the bus on my way home, on
getting home the headache and weakness
rose” i said trying to sound as sickish and
feverish as possible letting out little coughs
and kicking my legs slightly in a shivering
“Your body is not too hot” He intoned
running his hands all through my fore-
“Am very sorry nnam, have you eaten or
taken any medicine yet?”
He asked again.
“I have been asking him what he wants to
eat so i can make it for him and then give
him some panadol to take” Amanda
chipped in earning an appreciative smile
“Please darlin make chicken pepper soup
for him, you know he likes it and get him a
panadol from my drawer” Papa pleadingly
asked amanda who agreed immediately
and headed towards the door throwing a
wink at me before exiting.
Papa sat at the edge of the bed, still
checking my pulse from the neck of my left
“Nnam i hope you will eat chicken pepper
soup” He asked.
“Yes i will try” i weakly replied wincing as
someone in pain would.
“You will be fine, i think its just cus of the
journey” Just rest, your step mum will be
over with the pepper soup soon” Papa
intoned again, with every iota of concern
and worry ladened in his voice and on his
Watching papa’s resigning figure as he
stepped out of my room closing the door
behind him, his black Italian shoes making
a ‘ko’ ‘ko’ sound as he matches it upon the
I shuddered at the thought of what would
have happened if papa had caught us, if we
had shut the door and i didn’t hear his
My mind was taken back to Chioma and
how the stale night of operation last night
in nsukka gave birth to a stale morning of
operation leave nsukka to enugu.
I had stayed awake most part of the night,
the fact that i could hear chioma tiny sobs
in the night gave me a sleepless night
made worse by the floor i decided to sleep
on that night just spread a wrapper on the
floor and left the king sized mattress for
Jessy and Chioma.
Am sure jessy didn’t sleep too judging from
the eye bags she woke up with.
i tried apologizing to chioma in the
morning, cooking up more tales like
‘Cynthia was just playing and bla bla bla’
which she didn’t even buy.
I ate breakfast as fast and sliently as
possible, with each bite seeming like a
forced chunk in my mouth, swallowing
them was yet another task.
I could see the look in chioma’s eyes as
she watched me take my bag and walk out
towards the door without another word,
with jessy leading the way.
“I would have been a literal hell fire on
earth, if papa had caught me” My heart
shivered at the thought.
“This love escapade with Amanda is going
to put in one a hell of a trouble if i am not
careful, this sweet poison might ruin me”
One alien part of my mind warned.
“Today was too close if not for amanda’s
smartness. I think this will be the last time i
will ever indulge on this sexual sprees with
amanda again” I announced in my heart
sounding more like these politicians when
they make us promises of what they will do
“I will never do this with Amanda again, i’d
better stop this moving train before it gets
out of hand…” i re-affirmed.
Anyways i have a chicken pepper soup to
eat now 🙂
I survived today.
