We showered and dress as if nothing happen(actually nothing happened now, abi did anthing happen ni?).
Now tell me what happen to you in school? Racheal asked again. I was caught having fun with a friend inside school toilet(is it fun or sex? Abeg let me know coz i no want understand anything again o). Is that a new thing in this world she replied. I was shocked at her reply(person wey suppose slap me for wetin i talk but because we don dey bleep she no fit or is that who she is?).
“That not a new thing” my heart repeated that statement a million and one times. How will my parents feel when they hear about this? I asked her(as if she they read their mind abi she be witch for my face.. She fit be one no one can tell. A book can’t be judge by its cover Nah). I don’t know o but i think they ground you for that(for those of us wey no know the meaning of ground, e mean house arrest…indoor throughout for somedays)…i can’t still manage with that because we(racheal n i) will have enough time. I said with a devilish smile…that’s true naughty boy. Come and eat ur dinner before your parents arrive.
After the dinner, i went to my room and lie on my bed thinking about my mistakes. I should have resist her i muttered to myself.
Julius Julius Julius..my mum screamed out loud in anger…still on my bed pretending to be sleeping… Julius mummy is calling you. Racheal voiced out has she open my door. My mind already stiff and my heart as bold as that of a lion(afterall notyn is new in this world). I made a cross sign as i entered the sitting room who my parents were. Wel…co…me ma. Wel…co…me sir i stammered. What happen in your school today?my dad asked.. Nothing sir,, i lied. Gbosaaaa!!! I staggered(a slap landed on my cheek) my mum just slapped me(i am the one dey slap na racheal dey fall). What happen to you? My mum asked racheal. Am okay ma she replied.
I said what happened in your school today? My dad screamed out…my leg lose it balance and i fell on my knees (God forgive me all my sins na the song my heart dey sing coz i know datz the end)..can’t you talk or the slap has deaf you(rhetorical question) my mum asked.. You rape a girl in your school toilet. my parents chorus… Rape ke? My lost voice came back with speed. No i did not rape her o, she forced me to do it(i lied again).. Shut up we are not interested in your story my dad lamented..
My dad loose his belt, my mind skipped i thought he want to beat me so he made his way to the visitor’s toilet..
Yeh! I cried when i felt this sharp pain at my back(who tell you say them no dey beat children for abroad? Some black parents dey wire their pikin wella).. My dad beat the he’ll out of my life that night..when my mum can’t withstand the beating again she tried to stop my dad but he turned his deaf ear to her an continue to beat my..
I felt a shield at my back(my mum guided me from my dad beating). My dad didn’t notice that my mum has covered my and he fire his belt at me again and this hit my mum on her, near her right ear(this left a Mark on her face which took years before it healed). My mum screamed and this brought my dad back to his senses. What happen dear? He inquired..i turned back to see what happen and i saw my mum holding her ear, i lowered her hand and blood followed it. Jesus! I screamed(as if it was Jesus that injured her) my dad grabbed her and placed her on his lap right on the floor. Get me the first aid box the first aid box he shouted at me….. I ran like a thief to his room on my way back to the i fell on the step…that was the last thing i knew……………..
