A story written by BukkyDan ([email protected])…
Sasha struggled out of bed, the wetness she felt underneath made her pray she didn’t wet her bed; what would the world say of an eighteen year old girl wetting her bed?
She pulled the covers of the bed and her eyes almost popped out. The wet substance simply designed her sparkling white bed sheets, gasping she turned to mirror to view her behind only to find out that it gave her creamy night wear a horrible floral design.
“Oooh” she groaned looking at the sheets , that was why she preferred her smaller bed and green coloured sheets, the stains eaisly came off, but how in God’s name would she be able to wash the new extra large white sheet without her family getting to know whats up.
“Sassy…” the door burst open.
“Zobo!” she hissed quickly pulling the covers over the stained sheets.
“Morning Sassy.” Kenny bounced into the room alongside her siblings, they were looking so excited.
“Mawning” she murmurred backing away from his hug.
“Are you okay? Don’t tell me the party is still having effects on you.” Kenny teased.
” And don’t tell me you’re still in not fully awake?” Cassandra said sitting on the bed.
“Get off my bed! Don’t touch anything there!” Sasha screamed.
Cassandra jumped startled…
“Are you okay?”
“Dunno.” she pressed her back against the wall.
“What are you hiding?” Kenny walked up to her.
“Muummmmy!” Sasha squealed.
“Ehen? What are you naughty kids doing? Haven’t I warned you never to disturb my daughter?” Barbra walked in.
“Don’t bother giving her a hug she just screamed at us.” Kenny wore a long face.
“Mummy please ask them to leave now…”
“Please…I need to talk to mum now.” she addressed her siblings.
They filed out of the room silently.
“Mummy…when you were ‘redesigning my room? Where did you keep some of my things?” Sasha asked.
Barbra gave her a blank stare.
“Like my stuffs…like…” Sasha stammered.
“Talk to me, you need anything?” Barbra moved closer to her.
“Mum you have errm…like…errrm…you have Sanitary pads?” she continued to stammer.
“Pads? What do you need them for?”
“I need them for this!” Sasha turned her backside to her mother so she could have a full view.
“Oh my God! When did you…”
“I started since I was 13 or there about…please mum, the least I need now is questions and that surprised look on your face…please help” Sasha cut her short.
“Er… Cassie should have some…”
“Cassie! She’s gonna laugh at me!” Sasha screamed.
“Don’t worry, just run a bath, I’d get it for you.” Barbra was trying as much as she could to fight back tears. When did her daughter start flowering? Who taught her or gave her all the things she needed?
“I cooked specially for you.” Williams smiled as he spoon-fed his daughter.
Sasha smile with gratitude, but deep within her she felt sick, they should stop doting on her like a two year old. Imagine her father feeding her cornflakes? She was trying her best not to puke.
“Kola said you drove them out of your room?” Willams asked after she stopped eating.
“I had to.” she replied.
“Mum knows why…thanks for the nice breakfast.”she smiled.
“Sassy…”Kenny’s head poked into the room.
“hear me out before you chase me away again o… A chinese movie is on, I just felt I should inform you.” he said quickly withdrawing his head.
“Go apologise to them, they all sulking away.” Williams urged kissing her.
“yea…thanks once again dad.” she hopped off the bed leaving him to clear the plates.
“see guys…I’m sorry for screaming at you…” she apologised when she got to the living room.
“Yea…mum told me why.” Cassandra winked.
“And I eavesdropped.” Kenny smiled.
“Holly…” Sasha felt like sinking to the floor.
“Tell me why you love chinese movies..” Ashley asked taking a seat in the living room.
“I…” her voice trailed off. She loved Kungfu cos of its theme ‘vengeance’ , she had always promised to avenge all her defaulters but now..
“I don’t like it anylonger.” Sasha sighed
“hmmm… Joyce asked me to say hi to you, she asks you to forgive her.” Cassandra informed her.
“Joyce where’s she?” Sasha’s eyes glinted.
“She’s gone.” Williams strolled in with Jide.
Sasha laughed, its reason she couldn’t fathom.
“Oluwa ese gan o…aahh, Inu mi dun gan ni o…” Barba half ran out of room excitedly.
“Tunji just called o, he arrived Lagos and met Kemi in labour o….the twins arrived just now- a boy and a girl.”
the room was filled with squeals and shouts of joy.
“I’m finally a grand pa!” Williams hugged his wife.
“yea…we’re gonna bully those kids!” Kenny gave Sasha a high-five.
It was a long time coming, the family went through a lot of tribulations, Kemi’s marriage shook, Barbra nearly lost her place, Sasha nearly died..but against all odds they prevailed.
DESPITE ALL ODDS, the Williams are strong again.
