“Good evening sky” Chioma greeted getting
up from the seat, her face was wearing
anything but a smile.
“Good evening baby, i never expected to
see you here” i intoned taking a couple of
steps towards her, Ryan still clutched in my
Her eyes were glued to the little mould of
flesh and lips in my arms as i walked
“Aunty see, i have ice-cream!!!” Ryan
blurted out to her raising his king sized cup
of ice-cream, Chioma forced out a fake
smile then fixed her gaze on me.
“I can see you are having fun with your
son” She addressed, the ‘son’ much louder
than the rest of the words.
My eyes was blank, i looked on at chioma
then to Ryan who was happily scooping
some ice-cream into his mouth still hanging
on my arms very oblivious of the stale
I dropped him nudging him to go seat
down and finish his treat.
“Sky why didn’t you tell me, i cant believe
you wanted to hide this from me all my life”
the tempo of her voice intensified with
“No, baby you won’t understand. I never
“Oh cut that crap sky, don’t even baby me
or concoct another lie and add salt to the
injury” she retorted cutting my words short,
her face squeezing into a hard gesture.
“Chioma please listen to me” I intoned
trying to sound as pleading as possible.
“Please try and listen to me before judging
“What is there to listen sky, you hid your
son from me until the mother of your child
revealed it to both i and my parents. can
you imagine the heartbreak, the
embarrassment i felt in front of my parents
that my fiancee already had a son with
another woman and i didn’t know. the
betrayal getting to know from someone
else”. The tears were dropping freely from
“Chioma please it’s not what you think, i
never knew he was my son until…..”
“Just shut up sky don’t even utter another
lie, you never knew and i just saw you now
bringing him here and telling him this is his
house? what do you take me for sky.. you
think am a fool?”
Every word from her mouth slapped my
heart hard. to say i was confused would be
an understatement. their were many
explanations to do and i didn’t even know
where to start, Chioma is not even giving
me the chance to.
“Baby please listen to…”
“Sky i said don’t call me that again” she cut
in again. “I only came here to give you
these” She slipped the engagement ring out
from her fingers and dropped it on the
floor, the spare keys to my house followed
with a resounding jingling sound.
“Please don’t do this” a drop of tears
escaped my eye. Hers were already running
freely as she slowly walked pass me,
dragging each step like she was tied to a
The door closed behind her with a hard
bang, thumping hard on my heart inducing
a piercing pain.
More tears now ran freely down my cheek
defying my attempt to hold them back.
“Uncle are you alright?” Ryan’s voice
sipped into my ears dragging me back to
consciousness after i had being standing
there like a statue for minutes.
I took my gaze down, he was looking up at
me ice-cream smeared all over the corners
of his mouth.
“Am ok Ryan” I hid my throaty voice in
whispers wiping the tears with the back of
my hands forcing out a smile for Ryan.
The rest of the night i tried to be appear
fine because of Ryan, gave him a bath and
a change of clothes. luckily he slept very
early and it was deep, i watched him sleep
cus i on my own part found it was more
possible for an elephant to climb than for
me to achieve sleep.
The morning was very slow in coming and
annoyingly very cold when it finally came.
Ryan’s innocent funny remarks always
managed to hold me on, his high
spiritedness and jovial personality. it was
impossible not to love this innocent little
A little before noon i heard a knock on my
door. it was a familiar soft knock and i
couldn’t imagine my guess to be true.
“Yes who is that” I yelled at the door still
not getting up from my sofa where i sat
with Ryan who was munching in a plate of
chips and chicken i ordered from a
“Sky open the door, its me”
“Mummy!!!” Ryan yelled on hearing the
voice exposing his immaculate white milk
“What is she doing here, how did she even
know where i live” i cursed under my
breathe heading towards the door.
“Mummy!!!” Ryan sang up again rushing to
hug Amanda immediately her figure
registered into the room.
“what is my baby eating” She teased him
playfully nibbling her teeth on his stomach
inducing some wild laugh from him.
Ryan ran back to his plate of food
immediately Amanda dropped him,
laughing as he ran.
“Wooow he’s really happy here with you”
She commented smiling at me, the black
eye was barely visible now.
“What are you doing here Amanda and how
did you get to know my house?” i threw at
her getting a chuckle as a reply.
“Never mind how i got to know, anyway i
need to take Ryan to the hospital for some
immunization shots”. She moved more into
my house, tilting her head right and left
nodding while she assessed my interior
“Hmmm your place is beautiful” she threw
at me working out a smile.
“Ok thank you let me go and get his things”
i offered moving towards the stairs.
“Oh relax sky, don’t be in a hurry we are
not leaving right away” she replied heading
more into the sitting room.
“You have to because i need to go
somewhere, i was even about to bring him
home before you came” i intoned with all
“Oh my God!!!. . . what is this” Amanda
blurted out bending down and picked up
two jingling trinkets lying on the floor.
“Sky what’s are these?” she asked showing
me the engagement and my spare key
which Chioma dropped last night. i have
not even touched or tried to pick them up.
“Nothing, just give me that” I collected the
key and ring from her. i could see a one
sided smirk on her face.
“Sky are you ok?” she asked getting hold of
I could feel her breathe on my cheek as i
her face gain inch by inch into mine.
“Sky look at me” her hands now ran up to
the crack of my back..
I felt her lips take hold mine and her
breathing intensifying. A shocking wave hit
my brains hard.
I could feel myself slipping, i tried but i was
slipping hard. her hands now rubbed
almost on top of my pubic bones nudging
“Ok ok its ok Amanda” i blurted out
“Sky please stop this” she sang bringing
herself up to me again.
“Amanda leave my house”
“what did you say sky” She said peering
into my face.
“I said leave my house now” i went up
stairs grabbed Ryan’s back pack and
handed it over to her.
“Ok sky anything you say” she was
strangely calm and bright.
She left with Ryan minutes later. i crashed
into the sofa letting out a huge heavy sigh.
My life was like a broken plate now with all
it’s pieces missing.
