Forbidden Love(18)-A touching story for careless parents to learn from…

Episode 18

The next day at school, the siren went off for
our morning assembly. I was certain that
assembly was going to be long as it was the
last day of school and the incident that
happened last night was going to be talked
about. After our normal activity on the
assembly, the principal walked to the front
of the students for the usual announcement
but with a very stern look. She cleared her
throat before speaking and then brought up
the incident that happened the night before.
She said basically everything the house
master had said that night and said the boys
were not going to go scot free. I wasn’t
mentioned because I was just a victim but
they did mention that a girl was almost
raped by them. Senior Daniel unluckily
wasn’t going to go unpunished either for
beating up someone to an unconscious state.

When senior Daniel saw the boy was so
weak, he finally left him and stretched his
hands towards me. At this point, I became
really scared. I don’t know if I was scared
that the boy senior Daniel just beat was
probably dead or because I had never seen
senior Daniel in that state. I hesitated
because I knew he meant I should hold his
hands but he grabbed it anyway and we left
the scene with the boy still lying on the
floor.

Life went on as usual, assignments to do,
tests to read for, calls from home and even
uncle Sam. Trust me, I took life like nothing
serious had happened before. I let go of the
past, not that I forgot or wasn’t still hurt but
it wasn’t as hurtful as I imagined it would
be. As long as I wasn’t pregnant or ill and no
one knew about it, It didn’t bother me. I was
just fine, so my young mind made me believe
anyway. I still got to see senior Daniel at our
usual spot who just always made me happy.
At least, he still had one more year to spend
before leaving secondary school. I would
really miss him and all his caring and loving
features, I kept telling myself. I was even
closer to him than I was to my school
mother.

As the doctor said I wasn’t pregnant, I
opened my eyes in shock and then sighed in
relief. I wanted to express how happy I was
but not in front of the men with me. I looked
at uncle Sam who looked like he had just
managed to escape death. I was so happy I
didn’t know what to say. I finally muttered a
“thank you Jesus” before turning to the
doctor and saying a ‘thank you’.

Continuation…..

The next morning, I woke up in the arms of uncle Sam. I
hadn’t realized we had cuddled up while sleeping. I slowly
moved away from him but as soon as I got up, he woke
up. He looked at the wall clock just opposite him and
jumped up. I knew we were already running late for the
appointment. He told me to quickly take a shower while he
also gets ready and so I left to other room where I was
supposed to have stayed for the night. I only had the
shorts and shirt I had brought with me, which I wore on
Saturday mornings in school for our morning exercise.

The same house mother later came in and uncle Sam
asked her if I could be taken home. The house mother told
him that students weren’t just allowed to leave the hostel
but immediately she said that, uncle Sam told her that I
wasn’t feeling fine and needed to see our doctor and
made up an excuse that he hoped would work. When he
said this, the young house mother looked at me and asked
why I didn’t go to the sick bay and I lied.

I kept on crying in silence until I could cry no more. I just
sat there on the toilet seat and stared into space for as
long as five minutes until I heard the sound of the siren
which indicated long break was over. I heard two other
girls come into the washroom so I wiped my face with my
uniform, stood up from the seat, flushed the toilet and
came out pretending like I had just used the toilet. I found
out that the girls were jss2 girls and not my set mates. I
went over to the sink, washed my hands and headed for
my class.

On my way to the hostel, I met two senior girls who were
also walking to the hostel a stone throw away from me.
“Junior babe! Junior babe!” one of them called out.
I looked at them to see who they were calling and realized
it was me so I walked up to them and greeted them. When
I did, they laughed and insisted I say hi or hello. I didn’t
know why the seniors had a big deal with good afternoon
or good evening. I guess to them it was their way of acting
posh like Anabelle once said. They asked if I was new in
the hostel and I told them I had just arrived that afternoon.

As long as I had waited for this day and as happy as I
should have been, I was still very sad about what
happened between me and uncle Sam. I couldn’t just smile
at the tall building that was standing in front of me with
‘Girls hostel’ written on it. I wanted to be happy that I was
finally going to experience the life as a boarder but I just
couldn’t take my mind off everything.

Still in shock, laying down on the bed and staring into
space, uncle Sam said,”Meso, stand up now and go and
clean yourself or do you want me to wash up for you?”
I didn’t say a word, I only stood up, picked up my clothes
and went straight into his bathroom to clean up. When I
got in, I stood right under the shower and let the water
pour down on me.

I didn’t even move for a while or realize
when tears started running down from my eyes. I felt very
unclean. I felt like a wasted good. I didn’t know much
about sex or virginity but I knew that as a Christian,
everything that happened was all wrong. I wasn’t supposed
to have sex at this age, let alone with my uncle. I was
supposed to wait for the right time. “Keep yourself for your
husband,” my mum had said to me one time.

Five days later, after school on Friday, uncle Sam came to
pick me and Esther up. I begged my parents earlier to let
me spend the night with Esther at uncle Sam’s since I
wasn’t going to have the opportunity to do that when I got
to the hostel. Uncle Sam also helped to beg and told my
parents to let me, so that we could spend time together
since I wasn’t going be around for long.  I packed I and
Esther’s clothes into a small suitcase and uncle Sam put it
into the trunk of his car. Before we drove off, my mum told
uncle Sam to bring us back before noon the next day so
that we could finish the school shopping and get ready to
go to the hostel on Sunday.
“Yes ma! No problem!!! We will be back soon. Don’t miss
us oo,” uncle Sam replied my mum before starting the
engine and driving off.
