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

were in jail..no,it is only a heartless woman that will feel comfortable

“two thousand naira,i just bought it

from that woman’s stall”she
