Must Read: My Teenage Mind (18+)- Season 1 Episode 30 – Stories


That night,Raymond called me.

We talked at length (that was the era of midnight calls). He told me about his family,his dad was late,his mum was still young and took care of the house,he was the only son and he had two sisters. I also repeated my own family story to him. I got to know that he lived beside my church. The house they were living in belonged to his uncle so he gave to them to reduce some burdens from their mum.

He also told me that he was crushing on me back then in primary school but hebfelt I was still too young to be approached then.

We laughed over it and talked about other things that were not even important.

The summer lessons became more fun.

I stopped waiting for Vivian before leaving for the school,I won’t even bother if she came around or not. Lois was always there,from the class to the canteen,back to class and we’ll head home together and part at the junction.

Patrick called sometimes,the same with Skipoo.

One afternoon on my way home,I met Frank.

Goodness gracious,I had forgotten he was in existence and I regret ever taking that route.

Frank: My run away girlfriend
I smiled

Me: I’m not your run away girlfriend o.

Frank; Ah! Then what are you?

Me: I don’t know.

Frank: Heard you now go to my school. Is it true?

Me: Yes. But just for the summer lessons.

Frank: Hope nobody is disturbing you there?

Me: Not at all.

Frank: Let me walk you home.

Me: No,thanks. I’m doing fine on my own.

He looked squarely at me and shook his head.

Frank: What have I done wrong?

There was this calmness in his voice that I had to think twice before answering.

Me: You did nothing.

Frank: What did I say wrongly?

Me: Nothing Frank.

Frank: Then what is it? Why are you treating me like this? You claim to love me yet you’re avoiding me.

Sweet Jesus! How was I ever going to erase that from his mind? The love I claimed was just for him to beat Vivian and he did just that.

Can’t he just see I don’t even think about him let alone loving him?

Me: Frank,you need to stop living with the impression that I love you.

What was that I saw? Shock or disappointment?

Not my business so I continued.

Me: You’re not my type of guy and I came to realise that very late. You smoke,you’re a cultist,you hit women,even the ones I don’t know yet. Frank,I can’t date you and the earlier you understand that,the better for you. We can only be friends and that’s all.
He looked at me and smiled.

Frank; You’re joking.

Me: I’m not.

Frank: You dare not talk back at me.

Me: And who are you?

I was filled with rage now. I need to show him that I’m a strong woman.

Lawrence and Nenye broke me because I failed to stand up and fight my enemies. Now,I’ll do that which I failed to do in school.

Frank: You now talk back at me?

Me: You’re nobody. Frank please,I won’t love to regret my actions or words later. Excuse me.

I turned to leave but he stopped me with a tear rendering slap. He held my shoulders fiercely and was screaming on top of his lungs.

Frank: You’re mine. If I can’t have you,no one will. And if I can’t have you,you better stop parading yourself in this street.

He forcefully pushed me and walked away.

How dare he? He slapped me and still had the guts to shout on me. I stood there and lots of things came toy mind. I’ll talk to Lois about this guy. I need someone who will tell me things about him.

I don’t know how I took myself home that day. I called Skipoo and after greetings,I asked him if he knew Frank. I called his surname and Nickname too.

Skipoo: Who doesn’t know him in this school?

Me: He is a cultist right?

Skipoo: Nooo. But he knows people that knows people.

I struggled to digest the number of knowing and the number of people.

Skipoo: Is anything the matter?

Me: Nope. Just that I need to know stuffs about him.

Skipoo: I’ll tell you what I know about him on one condition.

Me: Which is?

Skipoo: We’ll go out on a date on Sunday.

I thought about it and felt it was cool.

Me: Okay.

Tell me.

Skipoo: He is a notorious gangster. He was not even a student of this school.

I was shocked.

Me: What do you mean?

Skipoo: He never schooled here. I doubt if he ever went to a senior secondary school.

He was just known here because of his girlfriend. She was a student here. I don’t know her real name but her nick name is School fees. She wrote waec last year.

Chai! And Vivian fought for him?

Me: Are they still together now?

Skipoo; Yes. But why are you asking?

Me: Nothing. I heard people talking about him on my way home.

Skipoo: Okay. We will see tomorrow in class so we’ll talk about our date on Sunday.

Me: Okay. Take care.

Skipoo; You too.
