Surely surely, I had my heart burning, I turned my back and there standing behind me was uncle
Tom,smiling at !e with his yellowish brown black ugly teeth. Jeez this man was ugly. I pushed him
away from me quickly as I was so shocked my own uncle would do that,I took two steps away
from him,still with shocked eyes on him.
” Oh come on Angelina, don’t act so surprised okay? Why are you surprised this has happened
when you are a beautiful girl ”. He said,smiling.
” What?! Uncle Tom,are you the one saying this? How can you be doing this? You are my aunt’s
husband! ”. I said.
” Oh and so what? You and I can actually be lying somewhere together without her knowing ”. He
” God forbid! I rebuke you! Never,will I do such abomination. And even,I am just a child uncle! ”
” Oh yes,you’re a child,with a lot of body development. You are not a child anymore, you can get
pregnant, that makes you a woman already ”.
” Uncle, I swear, if you touch me that way again, I won’t spare you at all! ”. I said,and was about
getting out and when he held my hand tightly.
” I know you are hungry Angelina, you know,your aunty cooked this plantain for me before she left
for church with your cousins. I can give you the food if you want ”.
I was quite surprised about what he said,and indeed,I was very hungry. I was starving to death.
But I knew he had evil intentions, am a child,but not naive.
” If you agree to be my secret sex mate,then I will let you eat this food ” Uncle Tom said.
” No!….I will rather die. My mum thought me to stay chaste,and my teachers as well ”. I resisted.
” Oh my dear,well for your information, your aunt and I have planned that,you will no longer go to
school… So forget what the teachers thought you ”. Uncle Tom smacked.
” What?! (Tears run down my cheeks) I won’t go to school again? ”. I couldn’t believe my ears.
He started drawing closer and closer to me with an evil intention and I started drawing backward
and backward…. He pounced on me that very Sunday morning on the kitchen floor,trying to tear
my clothes apart,in my own father’s house,God being so good,I got hold of a Rollin pin and hit his
waist with it,so hard that he felt paralysed on the floor,I got to my feet and took to my heels. I got to
the compound but didn’t know where else to run to. So I opened the main gate and sat in front of
the mansion till it was 5pm when I saw a taxi parked in front of me,and my aunt and cousins came
out in their church clothes. The taxi drove away and they got closer to the house.
” Herh!… What are you doing here? Are you now our security? ”. Aunt asked with a frown.
” I..I am hungry aunt. Please I beg you to give me some money to buy bread ”. I pleaded in tears.
” Please mum ”. Danny pleaded too.
” Okay okay fine! Take this and go buy butter bread and magrine. But you better come early oo ”.
” Yes aunty. ”. I replied and left.
On my way to buy bread,I kept on reflecting back when my parents were still alive. Will all this
have happened? No,I don’t thinks so. But I also remembered when my aunt slapped me,she said
something I haven’t forgotten toll today. What at all did my mother do to her in the past that she’s
vetting that hatred on me? Why does she hate her own sister like that? I was confused, but I was
going to find out no matter what. Hmmmm,so painful. I went to the provision store near by and
bought the bread. The storekeeper was shocked to see m because she knew how I was when my
parents were alive. So how come I was looking wretched now? The woman kept looking at me so
sadly that she gave me the full bread because the money aunty gave me wouldn’t even reach half
” Oh Angelina, is that you? ”. The woman asked in years. ” Ei! What a wicked world, so just one
month after your parents death,is this how you’ve turned into?
” Yes aunty. Hmmm,my parents left me in the care of my aunt ”. I said and couldn’t control my
” May God punish that woman for your sake my daughter. Please stop crying, it was your father’s
sake,that I got this shop am working in,and the land too. So whenever you need anything, don’t
hesitate to come here okay? ”. She said.
” Okay aunty ”. I said and quickly began to devour the bread. I ate like I had fasted for 40days and
nights. That felt good,hunger is painful. The woman gave me water and I drank to my satisfaction
and thanked her.
” My dear,pray before you sleep,God will let you be free again ”.
I nodded and left to the mansion. As soon as I got to the compound, I remembered that,I had not
washed the mountain of clothes they left in front of the room. Chai,Angelina, you came to suffer in
deed. I was now confused, I didn’t know,whether to enter the room or to stand outside. My brain
was burning and I was sad. All this,because of that wicked Uncle Tom. Hmmm. I took a deep breath and entered the room to the hall,and just as I was expecting, my aunt was standing there
with a cain. Uncle Tom and my cousins sat in a chair, also waiting. He seemed not to be so much
affected with the rolling pin I used to hit him.
” Are you satisfied now? ”. Aunt ask.
” Y..yes aunty ”. I replied with a shaking voice.
” So,you have enough energy to receive this cains,right? ”. She asked angrily.
” No aunty ”. I shook.
” I will slap you there now! Nonsense! Why didn’t you wash the clothes I left in front of the guest
” Aunty please, I wills ash it tomorrow after school ”.
” And who said,you will ever go to school? You are now my slave! So forget school! Now,go
upstairs, pick the clothes and go and wash them,now! ”.
” Yes aunty……..”. As I was walking pass her,she raised the cain up high to heaven and
descended a lash on my back which I screamed out loud and fell.
” Get up there! ”.
After five hours,I was done washing and hanged them on the dry line,then saw that it was 11pm
already. I went to the door to enter the room,but they had locked me outside. I wouldn’t dare knock
for them to wake up. And so I sat on the doorstep. It was windy and the whether was gloomy. I sat
still,looking in the sky and told my parents how I hated them do leaving me with aunt Okereke. But
what was done,was done. Thunder stroke and it started raining heavily, there was no shelter,and I
decided to sleep under the rain. The rain beat me mercilessly but I still fell asleep.
When I opened my eyes,it was day break,and the whether had not changed,but the rain had
stopped. I felt cold and it was as if I was getting fever. Ellen stepped out in the clothes my dad
brought for me,and she was chewing a gum while browsing in her phone,she got closer to me.
” It’s already 8AM. And you’re still here? Anyway, we just finished eating breakfast and mummy
wants you to come wash the bowls ”. She said and left.
I didn’t say a word but slowly stood up in my wet clothes and washed the clothes. Luckily for
me,she gave me some of the rice to eat. I got to my new room,the guest room and slept on the
bed I was very sick. I was feeling so cold and sat at the same time. Danby entered the room and
gave me paracetamol but the fever didn’t go down. This was not good at all. My aunt refused to
take me to the hospital. I layed there for the whole day and felt death closer to me. I loosed weight
at once. The next three days, I was okay,even though the fever had not left my blood. Foodstuffs
in the house had finished,so my aunt gave me 5000 to go and buy foodstuffs from the market to fill
the kitchen. After buying every vegetable and some fresh meat,I walked out of the market, strolling slowly home,even though home was far away from the market,I still walked slowly. My mind was
totally out of the road as I was looking downward, a beautiful brand new Range Rover from no
where crossed my front,and knocked me down,destroying all the foodstuff scattered in the street.
Luckily for me,I didn’t get hurt, but everything I brought was destroyed, but I wished I had being
destroyed instead of the things. The driver stopped the car in front of me,as I got up to tell him my
mind,the driver came out…and I was shocked to lay my eyes on the most handsome guy. He was
fair,taller than me,slim,with huge black shades on,he had the neatest cut,and he was on a phone
call,guess that’s why he was not attentive enough and was about to kill me…which irritated me. He
stopped the phone call and helped me on my feet… God,his perfume was sensational. He gave
the cutest smile.
” Oh gosh! I’m so sorry girl,so sorry. It wa sa mistake. Are you hurt? ”.
(I shook my head).
” Hey…I am Nickel Brandon…. What about you? ”. He asked,smiling.
” Angelina ”…..
To be continued….
By Adelaide Asaf (Daisy Cartel).
(On the Street).
” I am Angelina Jordan ”. I stammered.
Nickel realised that all the foodstuffs were destroyed and the expression on his face defined how
sorry he was.
” Angelina, am so sorry okay? Please tell me,how much is all of those provisions? ”. He asked.
” 5000. I bought them all for 5000 ”. I replied,looking downward.
By the time I could even blink am eye,Nickel brought out bundle of money from his car and
handed it over to me.
” Here you are beautiful ”. He said,smiling.
” This looks like more than 5000, please take it back ”.
” Hahaha…do I look like I need it,beautiful? ”. He asked.
I really got irritated by how he called me.
” I am Angelina! Not beautiful ”. I said,frowning. ” And you should look on the road when driving!
You almost killed me! ”.
” Only God knows why you didn’t doe beautiful ”. He said jokingly. ” Forgive me,you know…ever
since I arrived in Africa,you’re the first nice person I have met ”.
He removed a card from his jacket and handed it to me.
” Take this. I am really in a hurry now. You seem like a nice person… Miss……”
” I said I am Angelina ”.
” Miss Angelina. You can call me on this line. So I can get in touch please? Who knows,we might
become friends ”. He said.
I snatched the card from him and picked up the market basket.
” Can I drop you off at the market? ”. He offered.
” No. I will walk ”.
” Okay stubborn queen. Will be expecting your call beautiful ”. He said and drove away.
This was a day I had never met ever since my parents died,I took shade and counted the money.
And to my surprise,it was 10,000. I have never held such money in ages. Oh my God,thus is my
lucky day. I quickly deducted it and kept the other 5000 in my underwear and went to buy another
foodstuff. When I was done, I realised it was getting late. So I quickly dashed off to the house
because I knew I would be beaten by all means. The weather was very cool and it looked like it
I got home and surprisingly, my aunt said nothing but took the provision to fill the kitchen. She
cooked and gave me my share,after that,she gave me some drugs to take for the cold. I was very
much surprised. Was my mother’s ghost working. Hahaha,I entered my room and took out the
spare 5000,I would surely hide this money for future purpose. Example, I will need money for
sanitary pad and other stuff,so I kept the money deep down in my bag. I sat quietly on the
bed,looking at the card the strange guy gave to me.
Where would I even get a phone to calk him? Thus seemed like impossible. But I kept my hope
up. It was getting dark,I took my bath and layed on the hard bed,with my science text
book,reading… When I could concentrate on reality, it was already dark,about 9pm. And thunder
suddenly blasted the whole estate. The rain freed itself and came down heavily. I begun to deep
cold. And suddenly, the electricity went out in the whole estate. Everyone was sound asleep in
their comfortability. I begun to dose off as the rain was too heavy and the weather was making me
I slept off in the dark. Unknowingly to me,Uncle Tom entered the room with a spare key,and
locked the door behind him. The rain became heavier and heavier, as if heaven was trying to fall
on earth. In my sleep,I felt a cold touch on my tights. I was confused and thought I was dreaming.
The touch was swimming upwards and upwards to my waist and I quickly panicked to my feet, I
couldn’t see the room properly since it was very dark. Buy heavens lightening teared and I saw
Uncle Tom,sitting on my bed with a knife in his hands. He stood up and I screamed out loud. But even I myself couldn’t hear my own scream because of the heavy rain.
He strangled my neck and got his mouth to my ears with all his strength.
” Don’t play dirty,or else I will make you join your parents just now! Is that clear?!.”. He threatened.
” Please (weeps) Uncle please, leave me alone,go away please ”. I pleaded in tears.
” Oh I wish I could leave Angelina, but my manhood is up. Your aunty is old and wrinkled now,her
v----a is no longer tight for me ”.
” Help me!!! Help me please!!! Danny!!! Somebody……”
As I screamed, his anger got to the peak and he did slapped me and left me to fall on the cold
floor. Was too weak to get up fast. I tried getting up and he begun to undress himself as quickly as
he could. I got to my feet in dizziness and dashed to the door,I tried opening and realised it was
locked and the keys weren’t there. I begun to hit the door so hard that even my own hand started
bleeding. I turned my back and saw him naked with the knife in his hands,frowning at me.
He caught hold of me and turned me to the bed then tore my clothes into pieces,he grabbed my
b----t and squeezed it hard,making me scream in pain,even with that,the rain blocked everyone’s
hearing. He slept over me,and got his huge manhood into me and raped me mercilessly. He did
that severally to his satisfaction, and while he dis that,he had covered my face with a pillow to
prevent me from breathing and screaming.
I almost loosed my breath that night. He raped,me several times, continually that same night,and
got off me and started dressing up. My entire bedsheet was soaked in blood. And me? I layed on
the end,paralysed, looking at the roof. The rain begun to subside.
” Now,if you ever,come out from this room,and open that small mouth of yours…I swear… I will kill
you,and throw your body into the sea! ”. He threatened, while dressing up. ” So if you know what’s
best for you,better stay here quietly… Else what I will do to you,will be worse than what your aunt
is doing ”. He said that,unlocked the gate and stepped out,then closed it behind him.
Whiles lying there,I saw mum and dad,holding my hand,and I pleaded for them to take me along
with them,but they told me t wasn’t time. My eyes were still starring at the roof top,and before I
could think of anything, I heard c---s crowing, and when I looked out the window, it was sunshine.
Morning had come. That was when I realised what had really happened. And tears and anger filled
my heart up.
I begun to feel thirsty for vengeance. This was unacceptable! I cried and grieved like my parents
had died all over again. By hook,or crook..Uncle Tom and Aunty Okereke, must remain alive to
witness what I will do their future. I, Angelina… will not let God handle them,I will do that myself…
And I knew,that life always created way. I still layed in the bed of blood. I couldn’t get up,I was
broken. I heard my name being called downstairs, but my voice had seized. And my body was
” Why has this girl slept too much like that today? ” Aunt said angrily.
” Should I go and call her mum? ” Ellen asked.
” Yes,go. Tell her to come here now! Who does she wants to wash the plates for her?! ”. Aunt
Ellen gets to her feet to walk upstairs.
” No! Wait! Don’t you dare go up there to wake Angelina up! ”. Uncle Tom commanded.
” Ah,why? Is something wrong? ”. Aunty asked surprised. ” Why are you of all people saying is? ”.
” So,won’t you people let the poor girl rest? Ah ah,everyday Angelina… Why?! Angelina do
this,Angelina do that! Can’t you yourselves do your own work? ”.
” What? But dad…”. Ellen tried talking.
” My friend shut up there! You,don’t you have hands and legs? Foolish girl,can’t you go and wash
the plates yourself? Lazy girl! ”. Uncle Tom acted.
” But dad,she’s our maid now,how can you tell me,your princess to go and wash the plates? ”.
” My friend, if you are a man like me,just do like you are walking up there,like you will see ”. Uncle
Ellen sat down,browsing on her phone while aunty Okereke sat down watching TV.
” I don’t know why you are acting this way ooo,but just remember that,if you start pampering that
girl in this house,she will grow wings ”. Aunty said.
” We shall see ”. Uncle Tom replied.
” Also,as I and the children will be traveling to the USA three days later for a small vacation, I hope
you keep an eye on her ” Aunty said.
” Yes I will ”.
” But dad why have you refused to go to the vacation in America with us? ”. Ellen asked.
” That’s none of your business ” Uncle Tom replied.
” Oh Thomas don’t be rude! My dear,he won’t be able to go because he has to keep an eye on
that stupid Angelina,since we don’t want to take her along with us ”. Aunt siad.
” Aaah okay,Uuuh,I can’t wait to get to the USA for the first time ”. Ellen cheered.
(Two Days Later=Angelina’s Room).
I cried my eyes out when Danny told me that they were leaving for America the next day,and that
means,I will be left alone with the demon,Uncle Tom! Then am finished…
