It was a beautiful morning Around Water resources area in warri. I put on my normal bathroom slippers, took of my hair net and entered my mum’s room.
“Mummy, I’m ready, give me the money for the akara”…she complied .
I waited patiently at the crowded akara joint. There was something special about Mama Tega’s, No one could ever have enough of it. My brother will always say “that woman dey use juju, she go soon confess”. I always laughed at his speculation.
Tega! T-ee-gaaaa!.. Bring the beans na, his Mother yelled.
I was anxious to see Tega, I had always imagined he will look very fat because of his consumption of too much akara.
I was sooo wrong..A well built, Gorgeous looking guy came in with a bowl of ground beans. Wow! I exclaimed, this guy seems to be different from other warri boys, he’s calm, and obedient…
My thoughts were rudely interrupted
Abeg…I don drop the beans o! No shout my name Like that again o. I didn’t want to believe it, so I looked Around to know the source of the rude warning. I was so disappointed.
I collected my akara and started walking home. Hey! my friend…please excuse me!
I didn’t want to…But I stopped ( The power of cuteness)
We eventually exchanged contact details, But I severely warned him never to come to my house or be ready to face dire consequences, considering the fact that I had a very strict dad and two giant sized dogs that were not afraid to bite…or kill!
Hello? who is this?, I queried the caller. Babe, na me o, you nor get my Number again sef? Tega asked. ooh! Sorry, my phone is having some caller identity difficulties. Hmmn! grammer! you be English teacher? shwoo? wetin sef. I was stunned, I wanted to ask if we were quarelling, because of his aggressive response. I’m not a teacher o! I replied. So Wen we fit see na, you know say I dey gbadu you, why you just dey do me Like this na? Sorry I dnt know When I can see you…bye. I hung up.
I almost laughed my stomach off, When I remembered his question. I thought to myself ” this guy is very funny and he is kinda cute, very soon we’ll be moving out of warri, maybe I could use him as a sort of time-killer”.
The idea sounded Like a Good one, so I carried it out. Tega and I started dating. But I was soon to find out that there was more to Tega thàn meets the the eye, or even ear.
Tega and I eventually became a couple, one that was envied by his friends and mine.
We were 1 month gone but I still hadn’t told him we were moving out soon.
Tega called me to meet him at a supermarket around the street. Since my dad wasn’t home,I obliged. I had never been to his house, because I was scared of being raped, my mother would always tell me ” if you follow a man to his house alone,he will rape you and then you will get pregnant, and your daddy will kill you, remember he has three other daughters ” I began to remember this advice on my way to the supermarket. On getting there, Tega persuaded me to go with him further down the street. I was scared, so I declined.
“wetin sef? ehn? no be my babe you be? why you com dey gyrate because I talk say make you follow me? ” replied a furious Tega. He had a really cute frown(or So I thought ) and he had the habit of bursting out in pidgin when angered. I agreed to follow him after he apologized. The farther we walked, the louder my mum’s voice began to sound in my head.
Eventually, we got to our destination ; a wedding dress shop.
He pointed at the Jewellery section and asked me to make my choice. I reluctantly Did,because I wasn’t in the habit of taking gifts from guys. Since he was my very first boyfriend, I obliged. I was surprised at his gesture, I felt like a queen. On our way our of the shop,he pointed at a wedding dress and said “that’s the next thing am gonna get you”.
Few days later. I saw Tega at a recording studio, he said he was working on producing a single. He had a darn good voice, but I had a problem with his song lyrics, they were all about swag and money. I teased him about this. We laughed over it. I felt really comfortable around him, he had a lot of light in him, he was a really nice guy. I changed my plan to use him as a time killer, I fell in love with him..But I noticed he was always in a hurry to do things.
It was two weeks before were to move. I called Tega ,but unlike him,there was no response. After 2 days, I decided to pay him a visit.
I still shiver when I remember what I was told that day . Tega is dead! he died because he had leukemia…. his mourning mother replied.
I couldn’t believe it,my love was gone just like that. His mother brought a note he left for me .it read:
” Mrs English teacher, fear -fear smalli, I love u sha. Thank you for putting light in my life, you’re the seewtest thing ,since my mother’s akara. Wish we didn’t have to end this way”
we eventually moved out ,but I learnt something from my experience with Tega.
” Never be with someone just to use and dump them, always show love to those who love you. You Never can tell when they will go”.June 19, 2016 at 12:20 pm #666968June 19, 2016 at 12:23 pm #666973June 19, 2016 at 12:26 pm #666975June 19, 2016 at 12:31 pm #666980June 19, 2016 at 12:37 pm #666985June 19, 2016 at 12:38 pm #666988
