I remained indoors for the rest of the week.
Raymond would call and we’ll talk. I was
expecting my siblings home the following
week for school resumption so I had to visit
the market to buy the things we needed at
home since I’ll no longer be depending on
I had earlier on decided to board a bike but
on a second thought,I started my walk to the
market after making sure “my’ house was
under lock and key.
I passed by some girls that I knew I went to
primary school with. We don’t talk because
we all went our separate ways after primary
school and y’know this big ” girlism” attitude
when girls wait for the other person to be the
first to talk to them.
I had walked about ten steps away from
them when I felt a tap on my shoulder. I
turned around and I came face to face with a
not too tall beautiful girl. She will pass for

She asked very politely and friendly.
Me: Yes. I’m Rose.

Ifunanya: Oh! May I accompany you?
Me: Yes please. Your company will make it
We walked to the market talking and getting
to know ourselves. By the time we were back
to my house,we both knew everything about
our families and 60% of our personal lives.
She was such a jovial person that I liked her
Me: Welcome to my house. What do I offer
Ifunanya: Water please.
I got her water and we went back to
discussing street issues. Suddenly, she just
changed the topic.
Ifunanya: Do you know that Vivian will be due
by next month?
I looked at her and I was sure she could read
the shock on my face.
I had forgotten there was anybody like
Vivian. I had also forgotten that she was

things Ebuka (the father of her child) said to
Tears dropped from my eyes so I had to

seeing her next day.
