“Eugene was the kind of man a girl would never hesitate to say yes to. One, he was handsome, two he was from a wealthy family, three he was cool, calm and collected. He was also humble and nice to a fault.” I sat in Favour’s car listening to her story as I hoped silently this was going to answer a lot of questions that had been bugging my mind.

“When I started working at his father’s company after School, we became friends by reason of my reserved nature amongst other ladies in the company.

Eugene was every lady’s take home to Papa and Mama. He was a person of few words and that was my kind of person. He was the only son of his parents. He had five sisters who were all established in their matrimonial homes. From what I was told by other staff members when I resumed work, I found out my boss,Eugene’s father was the one who got Husbands for his daughters.

I should have taken that information very seriously, but I didn’t pay attention to it,until it was too late.

Eugene fell in love with me. He couldn’t hide it. It was very obvious that even his father took note of it and anytime he walked past us, or caught Eugene in my office having a chit chat with me, he would just say…

“ Favour, Favour” He would always say it with a smile. I took that as an approval.

Eugene proposed to me at our Annual End of the year Office Party in front of everyone. I was shocked to my bones, likewise everyone. His father was very shocked as well but very quickly his countenance changed and I saw him smiling.

I kept staring at the Engagement ring he was pointing at me. I knew people were cheering me but It sounded more like an echo…

“ Go Favour, Go Favour…It is your day!”

I wanted to say yes, but I was scared I had not heard from God. Despite being smitten with Eugene and the thought of being his wife was like being granted a wish by a fairy godmother, I had a lot of reservations.

“ Favour, you are wasting our time here..” Eugene’s father said jokingly from the high table…

I stretched out my hand for the ring but instead of accepting the ring,I took his hand and dragged him out of the room. Eugene didn’t hesitate one bit…

“ Favour what’s wrong? You don’t want to marry me?” He said with tears flowing down his cheeks.

“ I would love to marry you, but instincts tell me it won’t last…” I said as I was obviously shaking

“ Why would you say a thing like that, you think I am a playboy….?”

“No…” I wanted to scream loudly but for the first time in my life I wished I didn’t have a daughter. I wished I had kept myself chaste, I wished I had not messed up as a teenager and had a child. I looked at the life God had prepared for me in my future, but my careless past was about to shut the door..” I thought to myself as I found it hard to wipe my tears…

“ I have a daughter” I said with my head bowed. I didn’t look at his face but I saw that his body moved away from me…

“ You have what?” He asked

“ I had her when I was 15, She is 13 years old now”

“ You never told me this!” He said

“ I am a very private person and besides I never expected you to be serious with me. I thought you were playing around..”

“ You thought I was just playing around and I guess that is how I have been playing around with other girls in the office…”. He said and he walked back into the party hall,grabbed his car key and left the party.

I stood transfixed to the spot. I knew I had lost two things: I had lost my Job and I had lost a good man.

I also left the party hall in a rush to avoid unnecessary questions.

My journey back home was horrendous to say the least, as memories I had buried came back to haunt me.

I had been raped by Jeremy but to be totally honest, no one could put the whole blame on him because I also wanted to be raped…


Part 16
Opeyemi Akintunde

Jeremy was my neighbor. We were both teenagers. I had a serious crush on him and you could attribute that to the volume of romantic novels I had read at the young age of 12. Mum and Dad were civil servants who always returned in the evening. After school, the school bus would drop me off at the house and since I had been given an extra key, I would help myself in.

Mum would have prepared and kept my lunch in a warmer. I had been taught to use the microwave if i wanted the food hotter.

Therefore, my daily routine was simple…After school, I get my food from the warmer, put it in the microwave, I go take a shower, I sit eating on the dining table while doing my homework. Most times by 3:30pm or 4:00pm, I would have been through with my assignment.

Idleness sets in. I was never a cartoon person but I loved to watch movies and read novels. A friend introduced me to some highly erotic romanc€ novels at school and it started out as fun but along the line, I became addicted to it. We even held competitions on the fastest reader. This competition made it possible for me to read three of such novels in a week. I would sleep reading the novels and wake up reading it.

It therefore won’t be a surprising thing to say that at 13 years old, I had become s€xually active in my mind. Anytime I saw boys, I wanted to k!ss them and experiment all I had read in the romanc€ novels, but the fear of disappointing my parents did not let me have a boyfriend like my friends.

When I turned 14, My friend who had introduced me to the novels, took it further by showing us porn videos on her phone. That further worsened everything for me.

I desperately wanted to experience the feeling of what this thing called S€x was, and since Jeremy was the closest boy to me, I started seducing him by putting on skimpy skirt in the compound.

Like me, his parents were not always around during the day. In the compound, between 2:30 -7pm, we were always alone in the compound with the security man who was always too busy with his mini mart in front of the house.

I had learnt a lot of seductive ways of luring a boy to sleep with a girl through the different characters I had met in the novels…

One day, I slept off in the living room while reading one of the romanc€ novels. As I drifted off into the dream land, a young handsome man walked up to me. He introduced himself as Greg and instantly I recognized him to be the character in the novel I was reading. He k!ssed me and one thing led to the other till i had s€xual intercourse in my dream. I woke up feeling very much in need of S€x. It felt like the Greg in my dream had defiled me and planted the quest of S€x in me.

I stood up and walked towards Jeremy’s flat like I was being controlled, I knew I was under a strong influence. I picked up the Ludo game from the dining table.

I knocked at his door and on opening he was surprised to see me in a very short gown with a game of Ludo in my hands.

“ Hello Favour” Jeremy had said

“ Hi, Jeremy, my parents are not around and I feel very bored, do you mind playing this game with me?” I asked seductively

“ I am actually doing my home work, you can come back in 30 minutes” he said

“ Ok, better still let me stay out here” I didn’t wait to hear his approval, I took their veranda chair and took my seat. He went in and came out after about 10 minutes.

“ You can come in” Jeremy said opening the door for me to come in.

I placed the Ludo game in between us, I had chosen this game on purpose, because my intention was to sit opposite him and spread my legs open in front of him. I did exactly this and instantly I knew he had received the signal I sent to him, as I saw him moving uncomfortably on his chair, but all of a sudden, he stood up…

“ My parents and my younger ones will be back soon, I need to do some chores”. He stepped to the door and opened the door which was a polite way of asking me to step out of his house.

I went back to my house and self relieved myself, but I wasn’t content. I never knew what I had done was called Masturbation.

The next time I paid Jeremy a visit sealed the deal. I had returned from school and I had inserted a Movie a friend had given me in school. She told me it was a blockbuster. When I was through with the movie, I found myself in the same state I was the first time I had visited Jeremy. This time around I had dozed off and I had seen the male lead in the movie I was watching in my dream, he had asked me out and just like in the movie, he made love to me like he did to his girlfriend. I woke up feeling like I should have someone do to me what I saw in my dream.

I went to Jeremy’s house with the game, I sat across him and before I knew what was happening he had raped me.

After the whole incident I felt really bad and I realized S€x wasn’t worth it.

Three months later, my life became a mess as my mother found out I was pr€gnant..
