Though, it was afternoon but the weather
wasn’t hot. There was a gentle wind which
took over the atmosphere. It blew at every
angle and grasses making them to stagger
around as if giving thanks to God. The road
was lonely nd quiet. Only the singing of the
birds was heard by Melady and Calista as
they walked simultaneously without saying
a word. Actually, Melody thought her last
statement she made to Calista about
Jennifer was provocative so she looked her
and asked, “Have i done anything wrong by
saying that Jennifer was the one who
“No, just that i can’t believe i wanted to
kiss and have sex with my fellow girl”
“But it wasn’t your fault”
“I know, but isn’t it awkward to behave like
a lesbian in the public?”
“Listen, everybody knows that it wasn’t
your fault and also innocent of Jennifer’s
evil plans, okay?”
Calista kept quiet and adjusted her school
bag. Only their footsteps were heard on the
“Did Chester laughed at me yesterday?”
Calista broke the silence.
“I have no idea but i don’t think he did.
Why are you even concern about that?”
“Are you sure? Or have you forgotten that i
know you had your eyes on him?”
Calista smiled and adjusted her bag again.
“Yeah, that’s true but i think he loves
Esther” she said.
“Thank God you are the one saying it”
They became quiet again.
“Somebody told me that you can’t force
someone to love you just like Jennifer did
but ended up disgracing herself” Melody
broke the silence. “So we shouldn’t force
ourselves to people that don’t love us” she
“Yes, because I’m also included” they
stared at each other and smiled.
“Thank you for not resisting to be my
friend. I’m so happy”
“You are welcome” Melody replied and they
walked home smiling.
Esther met her mother in the kitchen
preparing lunch. She wore a black short
skirt and a white top which exposed the
hand of her black bra.
“Good afternoon, Mummy” she greeted and
“How was school today my dear?”
“Fine Mummy” she replied without looking
at her or smiling. The mother noticed it and
stared at her for a moment.
“Is there anything bothering you my dear?”
“No, Mummy, I’m fine”
“Did anybody provoke you at school?”
“Listen, i am your mother, you can always
talk to me about anything. I know you have
come of age and few months from now
you will be 20 and find yourself in the
university. So feel free my dear”
“Thank you Mummy, but I’m okay” Esther
said, yet without looking at her.
“I actually fell inlove with your father in my
secondary school days” the mother began
then Esther looked at her. “Initially, i
couldn’t believe it but i finally accepted
Esther was surprised to hear her mother
saying that. She couldn’t just believe her
“So my dear, are you passing through
emotional feelings?” the mother asked.
“No oh, Mummy” Esther responded and
turned sharply. The mother looked at her
and smiled knowing very well that she was
hiding her feelings.
Mrs Desmond sat in the kitchen pounding
with mortar and pestle. She tied a wrapper
across a black voluminous top and covered
her head with a hair-tie. Suddenly, Tochi
came out wearing a jean trouser and
“Tochukwu nwam” the mother called.
“Yes, mama!” she replied and looked into
the mortar. “Hey, mama is okay nah, stop
pounding!” she exclaimed.
“No, is not. Just sit down”
“I hope there is no problem”
“No my daughter” the mother stopped
pounding and looked at her. “It seems like
you like that your lesson teacher” she said.
“Hey, Mama! Ibia kwa” Tochi exclaimed in
igbo language which means. “Mama, you
have come again!”
“Have you forgotten that i was a young girl
like you? It is written all over you. You were
totally down yesterday but immediately he
came you became strong and happy, so
you can’t deny it. But what I’m going to tell
you as a mother is to becareful and keep
“I have heard you Mama” Tochi replied
smiling. She took the pestle from her and
began to pound.
“But that boy is very handsome oh” the
“Oh, mama is okay nah!”
“Is not okay! Allow me to speak my mind
“Oya nah, speak, Mrs speaker”
Just then, Wisdom entered looking ever
handsome in a jean trouser too which had
the same ash colour with Tochi’s.
“Good evening mama” he greeted smiling
and Tochi turned sharply.
“Evening my son” Mrs Desmond
responded. “How are you?”
“Let me set the table and bring my books”
Tochi told Wisdom. Due to she knew what
her mother can do or say, she turned and
looked at her in a way that shows: Don’t
say anything oh!
After Tochi entered, Mrs Desmond called
Wisdom closer. “Thank you very much for
helping my daughter. She’s now very
intelligent” she said.
“You’re welcome Mama” Wisdom replied.
“You are also kind and handsome too. I
think you will make a good son in-law”
“Mama stop oh!!” Tochi exclaimed from the
room making Wisdom to smile the more.
