I finished my meal hurriedly, Ehis still wasnt back from the chemist. I laid back on the bed, and started typing on my phone again.I pinged Hannah and Ruth again, to find out where they were. This time, it took a while to get any response. I guess they were really busy. I started browsing through True Celeb media website to read some new interviews with celebrities,
A reply came in after five minutes. It was from Ruth“we are at meridian hotel”
I have heard a lot about that hotel, it was one of the busiest and most expensive in the city. It had everything, from royal suites to jacuzzis.
It was like a reclining house for the creme de la creme of the society. If Ruth and Hannah were there, then a ‘big fish’ must be involved.
“Who are you with”? I inquired
“One senator like that” ….from Ruth
It was at this point in my life i realised the sort of people Ruth and Hannah were.
My friends were cheap hoes, they sell their body for money. I detested their kind of life, but i have covertly become like them.
I tried to convince myself that i wasn’t like them, after all
i wasn’t selling my body for money, i was in love.
The sounds of the door handle turning interrupted my thoughts. Ehis had returned from the chemist, he carried a weird smile on his face.
He locked the door, and sat right next to me on the bed. We began a conversation about our childhood and parents.
I told him how my parents had prevented me from having any kind of fun.
He seemed very understanding, and as usual was full of encouraging words.
Ehis turned towards me, and began his usual charade of words with his soft appealing baritone voice.
“Ella, you know how much i love and cherish you. I’m willing to do anything for you. I ll show you more love than your parents ever will”.
His words had the usual effect on me. I could feel that flutter in my tommy again. I made no attempt to resist as his lips touched mine.
I s—-d on his lips innocently, i felt a tension growing
within me, as he began to run his hands through my body.
All the muscles in my body relaxed under his touch, i felt so weak and vulnerable. I could feel the wetness again.
I knew what was about to happen as he began to UnCloth me. I had neither the strength nor the will to refuse, i was Unclad before i realised.
He lowered himself between my tights. One t—-t from him, and i let out a stifled scream.
I could feel a lot of pain, it was as if some flesh was being ripped out of me. But somewhere between the pain, i felt something i hadn’t felt before.
I can’t tell how long it lasted, but i was glad it was over. The pain was rather excruciating.
I sat up on the bed, and looked in between my thighs. I noticed trickles of blood flowing. It was then it dawned on me, i had lost my virginity.
A new feeling if sadness and regret overwhelmed me. I suddenly wished i hadn’t, I had loosed something forever.
I looked towards Ehis with, he was busy putting his clothes back on looking rather indifferent.
His eyes caught my gaze, he must have noticed the apprehension on my face, as he moved closer and hugged my Unclad flesh.
I didn’t feel anything anymore, all that remained was slight regret. The whole episode did not seem right to me.
His hug barely made any difference. Slowly i dressed myself up, and attempted to stand up. It was time to go home.
As I stood u, i felt a Sharp pain down below, it made my walking steps awkward. I just prayed it stops before i get home.
Managed to walk up to the door, which he held open for me. As we walked towards the car, i tried to walk as normally as possible despite the pain.
I did not want to give the silly boys any impression. It obviously didn’t work though, as their jeering and senseless talk continued.
As we drove away, i kept silent. A lot of thoughts filtered through my mind. What would change after today? Will my mum ever find out? Have i made a mistake? Only time will tell.
The silence from Ehis was equally deafening. He seemed indifferent about my feelings.
Few blocks away from my house, i told him to pull over. I did not want any one around my neighbourhood to seem me inside the car with a boy.
“is anything the matter”? Ehis asked in a calm voice.
“i just don’t want to be seen coming out of your car” I answered.
“no not that, you seem tensed”
” I’m scared, i feel a little different. What if some one finds out”, i said almost shedding tears.
He grabbed hold of my hands and pulled me closer to himself.
“Ella, i mean every word i said to you. I ll always love you”
His words infused me with some courage. I felt much relieve. Perhaps they were the words i needed to hear.
“learn to stand up to your parents, you are not a kid anymore” he said in a cold voice, letting go of me.
I reached out and kissed his lips, before stepping out of the car, to make my way home.
The walk home was very uncomfortable, i felt a lot of pain in between my tights.
My whole body ached, but i had to put on a bold face. My heart pounded as i approached the gate to my house.
The angry figure on my mum greeted me as soon as I opened the gate. She stood there as if she had been waiting for me.
” where are you coming from young lady?” She asked, sounding really angry
“shut up, your lectures ended since 3:30” she cut in
Those words sent shivers down my spine. I have been caught, and its only the first day.
But how on earth did my mum find out that i closed earlier? I wondered with my mouth wide open
“Go to your room and wait for me” she ordered
As i walked into the house, my mum took a thorough objective look at me, frisking me with her eyes. She must have noticed that i wasn’t walking properly.
I got to my room, took off my uniform, and emptied my school bag. I needed to take a bath.
My room door flew open suddenly. There was my mum again, with a pair of sterile gloves in her hand.
The sight of my mum standing there with the gloves in her hands terrified me. Cold shivers down my spine.
This scenario was familiar, i knew what she was up to, she had done it before.
But this time, her result will be different, i had lost my virginity a few hours ago.
I could not imagine what will happen to me if she discovered the truth.
“lie down” she ordered in a stern voice
“mummy please don’t do this, i beg you” i pleaded, kneeling down and sobbing uncontrollably.
“shut up, since you cannot explain why you came home late, i ll find out for myself” she said, moving towards me.
“mummy i didn’t do anything, please don’t do this to me again”
“I forgot to give you money for feeding along with transport, so i felt you would use your transport money for food. i stopped by at your school to give you some money on my way back from work. I was told that you and your friends left after the English lesson. Where did you go?”
The entire story shocked me very much. My mum knows definitely that i was not in school.
I couldn’t tell her where i went either, that would spell the end of lectures for me.
I had to say something, anything to get out of this mess. It was moments like this i wished i had Ruth here.
” i went home with Ruth”, i blotted out, without thinking it through.
“havent i warned you never to go close to that LovePeddler?”
“she is the only friend i have” i said, increasing my tears and hoping it would soften my mum’s heart. But that was not to be”
“friend indeed, how am I sure you haven’t been sleeping with men just like her”?
“mummy i swear i haven’t”
“in that case lie down let’s see”, as she tried to pull me up from my knees unto the bed.
My excuses and lies were futile, my mum was bent on doing her inspection.
I knew exactly how bad this could get, the embarrassment would be colossal. I was determined not to allow it happen.
I made up my mind to stand up to my mother just like Ehis had advised.
I broke away from her grip, and moved away from the bedside towards my wall mirror.
“My friend lie down on that bed before i lose my temper”, she yelled angrily.
” I’m not lying down, leave me alone” i yelled at her with the same ferocity.
The expression on her face changed, the anger was replaced with surprise and disbelief. This was the first time i had yelled at her.
“so Ella, it has come to this?” She asked, walking slowly towards me
I began to retreat, as she approached, I knew this was not going to end well for a certainty, but knowing about the state of my virginity would hold far more dire consequences.
I had my back to the wall already, there was no further room to retreat. My mum closed in on me and aimed a slap directly at my face.
I caught her hand mid way in the air, and held on to it.
“so you want to beat me too?” She asked, and began to scream.
“Ella must beat me today”
She broke free from my grip, and held on to my tightly to my shirt, ripping it apart with all her energy.
She gripped my singlet as well, and began to tear at it. I did not have a bra on, if i allowed her to tear my singlet, i ll be Unclad.
I grabbed her hand firmly, preventing her from tearing my singlet. We began to struggle, as we pulled in opposite directions.
She freed one of her hands, and grabbed my skirt. It wasn’t firmly on my hips, neither was the material of good quality. The slightest pull would rip it apart.
I wasn’t putting on any panties either, and i thought there would still be stains of dried blood on my tights.
I just couldn’t let her strip me Unclad. I leaned forward a little, resting my whole weight and pushed her slightly.
My mum went to the ground as if she had been knocked down by a bulldozer.
She began to scream on top of her voice, “Ella is fighting me o, My own daughter is beating me”
Her screams must have alerted everyone in the house, as i heard doors flying open inside the house.
The first to arrive at my door was Ighalo. He banged on the door, trying to inquire about what was happening.
I ran to the door, and unfastened the hook. Ighalo ran straight at my mum on the floor, and tried to pull her up. She resisted every attempt to get her on her feet.
“mummy i told you not to fight her when she returns, just look at what is happening” Ighalo said, picking up my torn shirt and throwing it at me to cover myself.
My dad entered the room in a hurry, and yelled “what is happening here?”
” Ella is fighting me o, Ella is fighting me. Your daughter is now sleeping with men, i wanted to check if she was still intact, and she started fighting me”
Those words cut deep into my heart, i felt a mixture of anger and remorse. I did not know how to show those feeling.
My heart began to pound, and my knees knocked each other. I was deeply terrified.
“so it has gotten to this?” My dad asked in anger, walking towards me and pulling out his belt.
I began to take steps backwards towards the mirror again.
“daddy please I did not……”
I had barely finished the statement when the first swipe of the leather belt landed on scalp.
I buried my head in my arms, to protect my face from my father’s battering.
Swipe after swipe landed on my body, it stung more than a bee. One swipe hit the wall mirror, and it came crashing down in pieces.
Ighalo rushed forward to my rescue, seizing my dad’s arm in the air, giving me a little breathing space.
I fell to the floor and began to weep. Flashes of heat, coupled with tears and hot sweat ran across my body.
“Hold her, check if she is still intact.” Dad commanded, as he struggled to free himself from Ighalo’s grip.
My mum was already on her feet, she turned towards Osas who had just joined us in the room.
” hold her for me.”
As Osas began to walk towards me. i started to imagine what would happen.
Osas would hold me down, while my mum parted my legs in the full view of three adult males.
It would be a terrible embarrassment when they all discover that my hymen was broken.
I couldn’t take it anymore. All the remorse i felt disappeared. A new feeling of anger and bitterness swelled inside me, i felt like exploding.
I grabbed a piece of the broken mirror on the floor, and made it visible to everyone.
“Osas, don’t come close to me” I yelled at the top of my voice, pointing the Sharp object at him.
The anger and ferocity in my voice, coupled with the violent wave of tremor surging through my body shocked everyone.
They stood in amazement, with eyes wide open. The sight of me with the fragment of broken mirror must have terrorized everyone.
Osas equally stopped in his strides and withdrew. An uncomfortable silence followed.
I looked around the room, and had a clear site of the door. I dashed straight for my bed, raised my pillow grabbed my phone and headed for the door.
Everyone gave way and allowed me through. I ran towards the sitting room, hoping the main door was not locked.
Ighalo ran after me, calling out to me, as if he knew what i was thinking.
“Ella wait, please don’t go, wait Ella, Ella.”
His pleas fell on deaf ears. I opened the main door and ran out, into the open.
It was around 7pm, and a little dark already. I could barely see where i was going.
I unlocked the main gate, and headed out into the streets, running straight ahead. Where i wanted to go, i had no idea.
But i resolved not to return to that house that night. I was ready to stake it out alone in the open.
I was out on the streets on a cold night, i had run away from home. I put on my phone, and began to make calls, trying to find a place to lay my head for the night.
