Adaobi......EPISODE 2

Our affair soon kicked off with the days that followed.
She was a bit shy but can be naughty when she
decides to. We downplayed out
relationship, meeting
only when nobody was around or in the covers of
darkness. We would both walk together, hand in hand
to a big tree that was at the back of our house, there
we would snuggle together and tell each other the
sweet tales of our lives.

We even taught each other how to kiss and how we
would like to be kissed and it was the best practical i
have ever done.
"Don't you have a girlfriend in the city?" she would
often ask me and i would reply in the negative,
although it was a lie, I couldn't afford to lose and ruin
this perfect love with the truth. Sitting together, we
would sketch love letters to each other and exchange
them sealed to be read later at home. I got to know a
great part of the village through her. She would give
me a tour when she was less busy and we would walk
hand in hand to place she thought were exciting and
indeed, they were exciting. Our visit to the village
stream was perhaps the peak of it all. We had
targeted when nobody would be there, on a hot
afternoon, we both set out for the stream. I held unto
her as we climbed down the hilly part that led down
to the stream. The stream was empty as everyone
was either visiting relatives or spending time with their
families. I stripped down to my boxers while she wore
only a black singlet that showed her ripe breasts and
a tight boxers. We jumped into the water and held
onto each other. She thought me how to swim,
although it took long but i did learn. After a long time
of playing games in the water, i swam to where she
stood, grabbed her and we kissed each other, i pulled
down her boxers in the water and carried her up, she
encircled her legs around me as i inserted my sex
organ into hers. We made terrific love there not
minding if we were alone or not. After the love
making, i dressed her and carried her to the bank of
the stream where i carried her on my laps as we
waited for the water on our bodies to dry. We went
home late in the evening.
The xmas holidays seemed to have ran past as we
soon got to new year. As always, we went for the
night mass only this time, i didn't go with my family, i
had gone with Ada. It took us almost an hour to make
a journey of 5 minutes to the church, we would kiss,
carry each other on our backs, run, walk and sit by
the road side. Throughout the period the church
service lasted, we were outside in a secluded corner
loving up.
We prayed the holidays would never end but it did end
and fast too. We both dreaded the day i would return
to the city with my family. We tried our best to make
good use of the time we had left. We spent more time
with each other, we skipped meals, hid our from our
various families just to be with each other. I loved
Ada and it was a terrific kind of love. I had wished my
grandma or grandpa was alive so i could stay back
and in the guise of helping them out spend eternity
with Ada but it wasn't so. The day of my departure
eventually came and i almost cried. We wrote each
other the longest Love letter ever. The previous night
was the most emotional moment i ever had in my life.
We kissed, hugged, cried and made love like it was our
last night. And when the time came, it was more than
i could take. We hugged each other and i didn't want
to let go. She consoled me and we promised to speak
on phone. Then we left for the city.
We got back to our house in the city a little later in
the evening. I went straight to my room, locked the
door and fell on my bed. I pulled a picture of Ada that
she had given to me and stared at it. I had met so
many other girls whom i had infatuated over, i fell
crazily for them and when we lost connection, it had
always seemed to me like i would never love another
but then one thing over another, i always got back to
my feet quickly and in search of new love. But from
the first day, i knew Ada was going to be a different
case. There was something about her that moved me.
When you love someone so dearly, you can't possibly
say why, all you know is that feeling is there and they
just seem to be perfect, that was how i felt about her.
A knock on my door brought me out of my thoughts..
"Yes, who is it?"
"Its me". She didn't need to say her name for me to
know it was our last born, princess. I hid the picture
in my locker and opened the door, princess dragged
her teddy behind her and jumped on my bed. I stared
at her and she looked back, giving me her charming
smile which always knocks me out.
"So?" i said trying to sound harsh
"Nothing" she said giggling. I smiled back at her and
lifted her up from the bed. Princess was the last child
of our family and she was just 4 years old, she took
after our mother in skin tone and beauty. My mother
was fair and pretty. She was tall like an average
woman should be and three of my sisters took after
her but princess was the carbon copy. I was the
eldest and only male child of my father. While my
sisters took after mother, i resembled my father. He
was tall and dark in complexion with an athletic build.
That description matched me although i was on my
way to being taller than him. We were four children in
my family. I and three of my sisters. Chinaza, Chidera
and Princess. Cute girls that turned heads everywhere
they went. Chinaza and chidera were equally fair like
our mother and it was hard to say who was the
hottest or most beautiful. They had this very set of
eyes that gave them away as siblings. I was in my
ss3 class and 17 years old, Chinaza was in her ss2
class and was 16, Chidera was in js3 and was 12. My
father worked as Engineer in one of the oil firms and
his works were mostly offshore which took him far
away from the house most of the times leaving me to
play man of the house most of the time. We were rich
and we had anything we needed to an extent.
I believed i'm cute because girls tripped over me
everywhere and i did enjoy the attention. Most of my
flings had been with my sister's friends whom often
visited me in the guise of coming to see my sister
Chinaza. Chinaza was beautiful like an angel but she
wasn't one, she knew why her friends visited and had
often covered for me many a times. My family was a
happy one.
I resumed school a week after our return from the
village. My father would have the driver drop me off at
school but i preferred going on my own which
afforded me the chance to mingle with other students
and talk to some girls too.
After the morning assembly, the first person to
welcome me was Janet, my girlfriend. She lived a little
far from our neighborhood and she was also from a
rich family. She was a little fair in complexion,
beautiful and saucy. She saw herself as better than
anyone else and therefore wants more respect than
she deserves. Of course she was beautiful and she
knew it, she also knew a lot of guys would do
anything to have her look at them, this made her
more cheeky and i wasn't spared of it at times
despite being her boyfriend. But then, she can be
sweet when she wants to. She was in art class and I
was in science. We were both in our ss3.
She had ran to me while i was walking to my class
and hugged me tight. I hugged her back.
"I missed you baby" she said and squeezed my hand.
"I missed you too" i said and pinched her on her
cheek, she giggled revealing her open teeth and cute
dimples. She walked me to my class clutching my
hands in hers. She had always made it her special
duty to show everyone that she had claimed me and
therefore i was off limits for any other girl. Girls
around her knew how rascal she could be when her
interests were at stake and so flirt with me only out
of her view.
My day at school were spent thinking about Ada, what
she was doing at each moment and if she thought
about me same way i was thinking about her. I would
at intervals bring out her letter which i had neatly
wrapped and kept in my wallet, read them over and
over again and smile.
We always walked home after school because it was
fun for us. Janet would often argue that we weren't
supposed to be walking home under the hot sun and
would often threaten to abandon me and board a bus
but whenever she sees that i'm not ready to budge,
she will grudgingly walk with us making sure that no
girl had more than her own fair of discussion with me.
This was the case the second day of school
resumption, we were all walking home with ever
holding my hand when my phone rang. I brought it
out and a totally new number was on display, i picked
it and put it into loud speaker.
"Hello, baby it's me" a female voice shouted. I quickly
removed it from loud speaker and put it to my ear and
to my Joy, i found out it was Ada. I shifted from
Janet's side as we talked. She was calling with her
mom's number which i can't call back with no matter
what, she was specific with that warning. We talked
for about 2 minutes in which we said bye. I put the
Phone back in my pocket and walked back to Janet
who gave me the most epic look i had ever seen. She
for sure heard what Ada said when the phone was on
loud speaker. She hissed at me and increased her
pace leaving me to run after her. I decided i was too
tired to do that so i decided to pick another female
companion, just then, Janet ran back and dragged me
along with her..
I was Janet's territory and nobody was allowed to
trespass. She gave life to the word insecurity. She
would get jealous at me for even leaving her to attend
to my sisters. Yes that was Janet. So you could
imagine the amount of tongue lashing i got from her
that day after Ada called. I had managed to convince
her into believing that it was my cousin from the
village that called. One thing i loved about her was
that she was easily pacified. She was sure to smile
for you after after a few teases...
Three days after the day Ada called and i was
desperate to hear her voice again. I called like 5 to 6
times and her mom always picked and each time i
would drop the call and block her number from calling
back. I was getting frustrated when an idea struck
me. I ran into Chinaza's room and met her changing
from her school uniform, she wore only her pants and
bra and quickly covered herself the moment i came in,
i looked away and sat on her bed.
"The people who invented knocking on doors weren't
stupid you know? She said and rolled her eyes at me
"The people who invented door locks weren't stupid
too and besides what are you hiding?, remember i
took care of you when you were this little" i
demonstrated with my hand a little close to the floor
"and that included bathing you"
"Silly boy" she said and wore the rest of her clothes
while i waited for her.
"Naza can you speak English with the most local
intonation you know" i chose English because apart
from our parents, no one else knew how to speak our
mother tongue Igbo.
"Why? " she said and looked at me.
" Don't ask me, just speak "
" Hmmm, So why du yu wantu me to du dati" she
said in a funny way and we laughed.
"Good, i need you to do something for me"
"What? "
" You are going to call a number i will give you, an
elderly woman will pick, you will tell her that you are
Adaobi's girlfriend at school and that she should give
her the phone and when she does that, you hand back
the phone to me, can you do that?"
"Its simple, it will cost you 2000" she said.
"Thats outrageous, 2000, just to call someone with my
own airtime o" i said
"Then call her yourself " she said and made to leave
the room.
" Ok i will give you 1000" i said as i was desperate
"Cool, where's the number? "
" You sure know you shouldn't be using all these posh
grammar and intonation on her, she's not stupid and
should sure know when she's talking with a village
school girl"
"I know, just get the number "..
She called, Chinaza was a perfect actor, i soon got
through to Ada, i pushed Chinaza out and lay on the
bed as i got emotional with Ada. We talked for as long
as 15 minutes then we reluctantly said goodbye. I left
the room for the parlor and Naza was there waiting
for her 1000 naira.
"Kingsley is owing me 2000, take the 1k from him and
tell him i said he can keep the rest" i said and
laughed. Chinaza's face puffed liked an over soaked
bread. She ran after me with her slippers in her hand.
Kingsley was her boyfriend...
