Must Read: The Devil Who Loved Me
Students woke up to the news of two heads on
a piece of white cloth in front of Mini-campus.
They snapped the heads and sent it to one
another. The guys in the house hugged me,
every one of them. They started treating me
like I was their mother..Uche had told me that
It would mean a lot to them if I remained in
Jafar’s room, they would fix the Benz for me
and all. It was a no brainer…I accepted.
Toun came back to school on Sunday, and after
briefing her on all the happenings, she settled
in with me in Jafar’s room. School resumed a
month later, but already we could tell that
things had changed.
People murmured when we passed by, they
called us the “Black Widows”. Even the so-
called bad guys in school never trespassed. I
never wore any other color besides black. In my
heart, I would mourn Jafar till I die.
I had made my peace with God, I didn’t care
too much about humans.
Like I said earlier, nothing was the same; I saw
the world in a new light. Jafar had opened my
eyes to things that I would never have
understood. Even my parents said I sounded
different on the phone…they didn’t know I was
not their baby anymore.
Some days to my exams, I decided to go buy a
pregnancy strip.., I had been late for two-
months. As I peed on it, Toun stood infront of
Toun: do you want to be pregnant?
Me: what do you think?
Toun: tell me jor..
Me: ofcuz, it will mean everything to me if I
could have Jafar’s child…God!
Toun: I hope so too, we would be the best
After peeing, I was too scared to check myself,
so I gave Toun…
She was quiet as she stared at the strip. She
nodded sadly…I felt disappointed, I really
wanted his kid. I didn’t care what my parents,
siblings or nosy neighbors and students would
say..Jafar was all that mattered.
Me: I am not pregnant?
Then she burst out laughing and started
screaming around the house…
Toun: You are pregnant Tana…two strips…you
I was so happy, I started crying…
That night, I drove to the circular patch, where
the fireflies converge…I switched off the lights
of the car…
Me: Jafar, I know you can hear me…I feel it…
thank you for not leaving me. I will take care of
our baby…The baby will know all there is to
know about how much of a wonderful dad you
Jafar…I love you.
