My dad dragged me like Hausa goat down to Ezekiel’s house, luckily his parents were at home. My dad would have shot him at sight, when my dad told his parents that their child impregnated me. Both of them vehemently vouched for their child, his parents were even ready to swear that their son have nothing to do with a girl. That he is a saint blabla..
They called Ezekiel who came in with baggy trouser and one papa dash me shirt hugging a bible, when he saw us he pretended to be surprise.
Ezekiel: sister Gift *smiling*
Papa Ezekiel: you know this girl?
Ezekiel: she be good pikin, she be youth choir mistress.
My dad: na you give my daughter belle?
Ezekiel: Blood of Jes**! no weapon fashion against me shall prosper, sister Gift why you wan give your life to devil when you don see light?
Me: *I start crying* Ezekiel talk truth na.
Ezekiel: *start speaking in tongues* daddy Gift, my parents here and the pastor go confirm say am against fornication, your daughter no know who give am belle.
Me: na lie! na you!!
My dad: hope say you nodey deny?
Mama Ezekiel: this girl na witch, leave my son alone. My son never even see girl nakedness talk more of to give girl belle.
Ezekiel: sister Gift, I am disappointed in you. I think say you be good example to the youths in the church, wolf in sheep clothing. No wonder judgment dey start from church, lemme call pastor right away.
My papa was so angry that he dragged me out of the house angrily, Ezekiel and his parents and many people in the Estate attested that Ezekiel is a good boy. I lost the battle completely, and the pastor added insult to the injury. I was so ashamed of myself as my dad dragged me beating me home before every eyes in the Estate, telling me am a huge disgrace.
My dad threw Grace out of the house, he pounced on me and beat me to coma, I find myself in the hospital. I was told I had miscarriage, I even happy sef say the foetus don go back to where em came from.
After a week in the hospital my dad brought me home, he warned me not to go to anywhere and instruct Simeon the carpenter and chief nailer as them dey hail am to watch my movement, I wasn’t allowed to entertain visitor or even step out of the house.
Simeon started using the opportunity to ask me to allow him do, I told him no. He went ahead and told my dad that I sneaked out of the house in the night to go and see one useless boy that me sef no know.
My dad: so you commot from this house?
Me: me, no! I no commot oh!
My dad: you no wan learn from your mistake, Gift?
Me: but dadd…
My dad: close your dirty mouth.
He slapped me and flogged me mercilessly, Simeon came when he travelled and asked me to give him chance that he will not tell my dad anytime I want to go out. He told me that he is sorry, that he liked me well that why he lied. He told me that I shouldn’t be afraid of pregnancy that he will use co-ndom, he told me that if I say no that he will tell my dad that I allowed a guy to enter our house in the Night.
I like kulkuli sha.. So I allowed him, he quickly removed his dirty short and brought out a huge kulikuli that looked like small python, I laid on the bed naked and he entered screaming like someone that was attacked by sweet witch. My puna too sweet, he started moving his waist mo-aning louder that I am, just twenty five thru-sts he cu-mmed.
I no even understand wetin dey happen until he rolled off from me breathing like exhausted dog that have been running for five days, he was breathing and sweating profusely. I tried getting up his kulikuli but his useless kulikuli didn’t get up or even move sef. He thanked me and wore his dirty short and left, I vex ehnn.. Upon all the endurance of the wood smell he was spreading about na under-performance I get in return. I planned to make him pay, konji wan finish me that day.
The stupid man still came back after that day, I called my dad and hid the phone in my pocket.
