i fell in love with an angel(emotional)

I got home, the compound was scanty as as I ual but shade and one of our neighbor bros jay was at home. I quickly brought out all my dirty cloth, slippers and traveling bag to wash. While washing, something came into my head which got me confused again (how will I bury my mum as poor as I am) will she be in the mortuary till I graduate, work and get money to bury her. This stuff kept disturbing me. The worst part is since I was born I have not seen any of my mum’s relation talk less of her parents, it is only my dad’s relation I have seen which after his death they never visited again. After washing I went inside my house to relax and think better. I was still thinking went a knock brought me back
(knocking x4)
“who is there” I said from the mat I was lying down on.

“its me” a feminine voice said
(hope is not shade that is disturbing me) I rosed up from the mat heading to the door. I opened to my uttermost dismay I saw Kelly standing in the front of my door (which kind devil be this)
“Kelly what again? ”
“so you can’t even welcome me into your house”
(I was really confused) “Okk come in”
She walked into my house
With her turkey gown, Italian made shoe and Michael kors hand bag(I could see that through the sense as sight).
“I heard what happened” she said sitting on my mat ” your mum died yesterday am so sorry for that”
“is that why you came here”
“yes I came to console you”
” do I look like a baby that you came to console me? ”
“johnbull stop it(raising eye brows) in fact am leaving”
She stood up going to the door she was about opening the door when I pulled her back.
” what!!! ” she said
I started kissing her hungrily before I knew it she responded to stimulus. We kissed for about three minutes before we fell to the mat, I zipped down her gown, unhooked her bra and was about fondling her b----t when I lost motion it was as if someone poured me cold water on my head in a dark room. Suddenly I saw my mother in that dark room talking to me
“(echoing) son why are you such a stupid boy, you have seize to learn your lesson”
She then played a movie for me to watch I saw when I was beaten in Kelly’s daddy house, how the police men tortured me and gave me an injury. Immediately she disappeared and I regained consciousness physical.
I was hearing Kelly shouting sweetheart what is that, are you alright.
“(sweating profusely) what happened”
” you suddenly lost control and was speechless. Is this your first time doing this?”
“(panting) maybe we need to stop this immediately”
“why?. After u have gotten me in the mood”
” can’t you not understand I am no more interested”

“(frowning) you would have told me you were an impotent goat”.
She dressed properly, wore her shoe, took her hand bag and left the house. I was totally confused sweat was running down my body my cloth was even soaked. By 6pm that same day I went to bath, after bathing I balled down to mama nkechi restaurant since I could not cook well. After eating 2gig(2 fufu) with ogbono soup and one meat, I retired back to my compound. I got a bench cleaned it and laid on it to receive fresh air before going to sleep.

Friday Morning
Today johnbull is going to anambra state, he has to go wait for the principal at babisky high school so they can embark on the journey. Johnbull was found in his room at exactly 4:25am going through his Facebook account after that he made a phone call
“baba howfar naa? ”
“hope all is well”
“guy no lele, I come your house yesterday you no dey. I just wan tell you say I dey travel with mr udoh today to anambra”
“which mr udoh”
“how many mr udoh you know?. e be like say sleep still dey your eyes”
“OK I don hear go well”
(ending the call).
I took my small traveling bag, went out of my apartment and lock it with a padlock. I was scared of going out by that time, thank God immediately I left the compound I saw a bike man.
“(smoking cigarette) o boy where you dey go by this time”
(forming thick voice) oga carry me go ijoba street babisky high school”
“your money na 100 naira”
“oya dey go”
After 12 minutes ride we got to my destination, on dismounting the bike I saw mr udoh coming down to the school. I payed the bike man and went to meet mr udoh.
“good morning sir”
“johnbull how are you?? ”
“am fine sir”
“hope you are fully prepared with your books, clothes and writing materials”?
“yes sir”
“OK let’s go”
We left the arena and trekked to the park. When we got to the park all the passengers were complete except I and mr udoh, we entered the bus after taking some rounds of insult from the passengers. The driver waked the engine and our journey started. After six hours of our journey, the driver stop in a restaurant at benin and asked all passengers who want to eat, wee or deficate to do that now.
” if na hungry dey bust your dada go chop now oo, if na piss go piss, if na s--t u wan scatter go do am now ooo.. I no go stop again till I reach Onitsha ooo” the driver said.
Mr udoh told me to come down so we can eat. (thank God I said in my mind) because I have not eaten since morning.
We went into the restaurant while the woman approached us
“una welcome oo. Wetin una go like to take”
“what do you have” mr udoh said
” I get ogbono soup(choi johnbull best soup), omoebe(black soup), omiukpoka. Vegetables soup, rice(all types) spaghetti, bread and beans”
“hmm give me rice and stew with two meat” mr udoh said
“brother what of you” referring to johnbull.
errm I wanted to eat ogbono but when I start curling it mr udoh may not like it, am an edo boy but I no to like black soup, OK what of bread and bean.. Ahh I remember one book I read at eli2xpensive library “hot beans” where he deficated on his body, no I won’t eat that(I said to my self)immediately I heard the woman shouting
“oga answer wetin you wan chop??”
“sorry madam give me fried rice and salad with two chickens and coke”
Mr udoh removed his glasses and looked at me

On hearing the news that Kelly daddy was coming back to the house I was marveled, I dressed properly, running furiously outside the compound to my house to prevent story that will touch the heart. In no time I was in my house panting like someone who was chase by a lion. I decided to stay indoor for the rest of the day, neglecting my training because I don’t know what Kelly’s dad may be planning out there.
I was still praying when I heard a knock on my door
“who is that” I said frightened

“na me jide”
(I went to open the door)

“jide how far na ”
“I dea… Guy why you no come yesterday”..
“guy I go some where joor”
“guy e be like say you no wan go this competition”
” I wan go.. Which time be training again? ”
“this morning, today coach henry dey choose the fifteen boys wey dey go the competition”
“OK just wait for me make I baff”
10 minutes later johnbull was back, well dressed in his basketball kit, Jide and johnbull left for the school. After five hours of training, coach henry selected fifteen players to represent the school at the competition (including the captain of the team with jersey no5 johnbull). Later in the evening johnbull came back, feeling very tired and stressed down.
He called olumma telling her to bring food for him to eat, since he was so tired to come around.
Olumma came to his house by 7pm with 2 flask of food, one containing egusi soup and eba(cassava flask made with hot water), while the second one was containing coconut rice. She asked him to choose one, so she can eat the other
” I want to eat the two” johnbull said
” no problem you are free just eat, I want to discuss something with you”
“something like what?”
“eat your food first”
“I was just kidding, let me eat the soup while you eat rice”
(johnbull was opening the food when he asked a question)
“olumma, which tribe are you from”
“igbo imo state precisely”
“wow.. That’s good”
“what about you? ”
” am an edo boy”
After the both of us finish eating, then I raise the topic she was talking of before
“so what do you want to discuss with me”
(she came forward to me)”do you love me? ”
I was Astonished by her question
“do you love me?” johnbull asked backed
“you have to answer me first before I answer yours”
” Noo you answer me first”
“then keep waiting for my answer” she said living my house….
One week later after a hectic and vigorous training, we were to travel the next day for the competition. Coach henry discharged us(the players) by 10pm so we can prepare for our traveling the next day. I got home packed my cloth (mostly jerseys ) and all I needed for the journey, before I rested. Minutes later olumma called to inform me that she was coming to my house, I quickly arranged the room before she came
“sweet heart how are you doing”
(frowning)”am fine”
“bae why are you still angry with me”
“am not I just want to know who my heart belongs to”
The talk was fishy “are you seeing someone else”
“not really ”
” not really?. Bae I love you and your heart belongs to me”
(smiling)” OK I have heard you”
I drew forward from my resting point and pecked her on the fore head, I told her of my journey the next day while she hugged me. She told me she was going back to work while I escort her, I crossed my hand round her neck while we went out of the room. We were about leaving the compound, when Kelly popped into us unknowingly.
“so this is it, no wonder you suddenly hate because of this thing”Kelly said pointing at olumma
She continued” johnbull you are happy putting your hand over her neck, but if I try touching you, you will be vibrating as if you are a saint. Johnbull I hate you” she said leaving the compound.

“who is she?”olumma the lady beside me asked
I was dumb founded.
“that’s why I don’t trust boys” she muttered living me and heading out of the compound…

(knock knock) I knocked on the door
“come in” olumma said
I opened the door and entered the room

“how are you doing” chinedu asked
” fine am feeling better now. Thanks for your caring I really appreciate”
“don’t mention” chinedu said going to meet her on the bed
“I hope you remember me am johnbull’s friend, I remember when he told me you are his girlfriend that was why I helped you”
” thank you very much God bless you but do me a favour”
“OK what is it”
“pls don’t tell me of johnbull again”
“why” asked chinedu looking surprise
” johnbull said he loves me but he is dating another girl he claim to be his class mate”
“do you mean Kelly?”
” I don’t know her name but she is slim and dark in completion”
“it Should be Kelly. But why will johnbull behave like this?” he asked and feeling very happy in his mind because he has seen a good opportunity to achieve his goal
” I don’t know” olumma replied
” can I ask you a question?”
“you are free”
“why will you be working in a restaurant at your age”
” my age?. Did you know how old I am? ”
“not really but you look too young”
“well its due to some circumstance”
“like? ”
Olumma told chinedu everything she told johnbull about her self.
“am sorry if I made you to remember the past”
” its nothing”
“you are an aspirant of unilag? ”
“yea am just waiting for the admission list”
“what course did you put in for”
“wow am also an aspirant of unilag statistics and mathematics”
“wow what a coincidence ”
“yea. From today you will stay in my house you won’t go back to that man that abused you sexually, you won’t work in mama nkechi restaurant again”
“how do you want me to pay my school fees and get an accommodation in school”
“that’s not a problem, my dad will take care of that. Let’s go see my mum” chinedu said
Chinedu took olumma to his mum, he was a bit scared that his mum may reject the girl. Glory be to God that his mum accepted the girl with all her heart while they went to prepare dinner. The all ate dinner happily and chatted.
Babisky high school bus was seen entering the school compound and the players all shouting.
“yes yes yes yes yes yes” ( forming Daniel bryan)
They came back with silver medal and also won the trophy for the most fair players. While johnbull and jide were the best players of the tournament.
Immediately the players alighted the vehicle the principal sent for johnbull., while he went immediately.
“my boy how are you”
“am fine sir”
“you are making this school so pround”
“(smiling) thank you sir”
” the admission list is out and your name is there”
” thank God”
” yea so you are free to go to anambra anytime you are ready”
“thank you sir”
“finally continue being a good boy academically and God will keep on protecting you”
Johnbull went out of mr Udoh’s office and headed home. Immediately he got home, cleaned the house and rested a bit he was so tired that he slept off for five hours. When he woke up, he took his bath and went to mama nkechi’s shop to beg olumma for forgiveness and also eat something. But unfortunately for him, he got a shocking happy story from the other workers.
“ahh so you don’t know that olumma is no longer working here” one of the workers said
“since when”
“over two weeks now”
” she lost madam money”
“wow. OK thanks alot” johnbull said leaving the restaurant.
He took his phone from his pocket and dailed olumma’s number but she did not pick up.
“maybe she is still angry” he muttered. He boarded a commercial motorcycle going to chinedu’s house. He knocked on the gate and the gate keeper collins opened at once, he entered the compound and met the shock of his life…
Chinedu was carrying olumma at his back and running round the compound while amaka was running after them
“jesus” johnbull ran amok immediately
” ahh chinedu so this is what you are. What do you think you are doing?” asked johnbull
“are you so blind that you can’t see, chinedu here is now my Romeo he loves me and we love each other” said olumma
” johnbull am really sorry its was not intentional”
This time around johnbull was already that he bounced on chinedu and started punching him. He punched him until blood started coming out of his nose and mouth, the gate keeper, olumma and amaka separated the two boys but it was too late because chinedu’s face was already swollen.
Suddenly chinedu mum horned from outside and the gate keeper collins went to open the gate. Immediately she came in, she saw the look of things and asked what the problem was.
Due to the anger in johnbull he started lamenting and told mrs Eze (chinedu mum) what chinedu did
“ma is it fair” johnbull lamented
Immediately he finish talking, mrs Eze gave him three hot resounding slaps
“is that why you want to kill my son. Let me ask you are poor people like you suppose to keep girlfriend”
Tears rowed down johnbull’s eye
“collins take this hopeless boy out of my compound and never allow him enter this compound again” mrs Eze said

” after all you were not in good term with her before you travelled” chinedu said as johnbull was pushed out of the compound
