Must Read: My Teenage Mind (18+)- Season 1 Episode 35 – Stories


And so,one week later,I found myself in a new school. It was more of a convent because it was an only girls school which belonged to reverend sisters. It was the same school where my sister wrote her waec. I found it very hard to cope. You know girls and their life nau.

They were waiting for me to approach them and I too,can’t be the first to go to them.

I became an island. The only consolation was that I bonded with the teachers immediately.

The maths and economics master,the Igbo mistress,the literature mistress,they all loved me.

Why? I was good in their subjects. Yes! Let me answer your question,I’m a science student but I did literature. I hated geography because of the map reading so I went for literature.

Two weeks after resumption, a girl in my class walked up to me. I didn’t even know her name so she introduced herself as Chidimma.

Chidimma: Rose.

Me: Yes?
I looked up from my book.

She sat down on my locker.

Chidimma: You schooled at (she called Vivian’s school) right?

And did I mention that my new school was just #100 bike from my home and maybe #70 bike from Vivian’s school? Okay. I think I just did.
So I apologise.

I looked at her and nodded but didn’t fail to tell her that it was just my primary school and I didn’t even finish.

Chidimma: My name is Chidimma. I was in primary five when you were in primary three.
I smiled sheepishly. So finally,I’ll have a friend in this school,I thought to myself.

Me: Sorry,you may be right but I don’t remember you.

Chidimma: Ah! I understand. Besides,we never spoke.

Me: Thank you.

Chidimma: So why are you in ss3?
I looked at her and we laughed. I had to repeat the story of the class jumping.

Chidimma: How can I forget that you were the best then?

Me: Go joor. Thank you. Ehe! I even went for holiday lessons there before I was registered here.

Chidimma: Serious?

Me: Yes.

She was full of smiles.

Chidimma: Tell me the names of people you met there.

Me: I didn’t bond with them very well o. I met Raymond,Emeka,Patrick,. . . . .

Chidimma: Wait,Raymond Akuma?

Me: Yes yes.

Chidimma: Eminem. Handsome boy.

She kept talking and talking but I was no longer in the mood to listen. Memories of my last moment with Raymond came back to me,how we just separated without goodbyes,the hatred and anger I saw in his eyes. I shook the tear off and continued gisting with Chidimma.

As time went on,the rest of the girls started being friends with me,maybe because they saw how free I was with Chidimma or that exams were approaching and they realised I would be of great help. Anyhow,I didn’t care,so long as I had lots of them to talk to and rapor with.

The terminal exams came and went and we all went home for the Christmas break.
