Read Story: SEASON 1 EPISODE 49
I felt triggered by what i saw.
What had turned mama into a
walking skeleton..I pondered as i perched on the bedside table while
mama lowered her bulk on the bed.
“mama whats happening?” i found
myself asking,i couldnt stop the
words from flowing out.
She sighed “what do you mean by what is happening?” she asked in
a weak voice.
“you look emaciated”
“thats how i should look,do you
think i ate during those days you
were in jail..no,it is only a heartless woman that will feel comfortable
while her son is in jail”she paused
and busied herself with arranging
the ruffled bedsheets.
“mama am sorry for all you have
been through because of me,am forever indebted to you” i said with
“it is alright”she assured me with a
wane smile that didnt show in her
I silently sat beside her,fearing the worse.
I knew mama didnt come all the
way to my room for a petty
conversation about jail.
What was it that she couldnt
stomach again?? Papa of course
The day turned out bad for
me,mama had filled my head with
papa’s unjust treatment to her,i
just wished i could lay my hands
on him,but my been a jehovah
withness restrained me from doing so.
I had taken my first official outing
after been fed up with staying
indoor,i put on a fresh lux
singlet,navy blue chinos trouser and a white striped vest.
I had barely stepped into the street
when I bumped into a young
girl,the basin of raw eggs she was
carrying on her head collapsed and
the surrounding floor became a total mess.
“am really sorry please” i
The young girl Ignored me and
picked up the basin.
“how much is the total amount of the eggs?” i asked,fishing into my
back trouser pocket for my wallet.
“two thousand naira,i just bought it
from that woman’s stall”she
I smiled and swallowed,two thousand naire gone gone go!!
As I gave her the money i thought
about what I would have
purchased with those two clean
She thanked me and zoomed off while i continued walking.
