-The Heat Of Virginity

Read Story: The Heat Of Virginity… Part 12

She held my hand and led me into the church. I didn’t know
what to think or expect, I just needed to know what was
wrong with her.
We got into the church and what caught my eyes was the
sight of children playing on a mat spread on the floor. Then I
said. “Okay Tope we are in the church, tell me what is going
on? And why did you decide to blank me out completely?
She said. “I thought it was the right decision, ending
everything we started 2 years ago. But I was wrong and I am
I then said. “Okay, now tell me why are you not in school? Is
your mother okay?” She then gushed out in tears. It was
becoming irritating and I grew impatient and….. I heard a
tiny voice of a kid saying. “Mummy sorry.”
The little boy then embraced her by her leg and she carried
him up. I was shocked the baby looked very much like me
when I was little…. He had the shape of my eyebrows and
my droopy eyes. I then stuttered. “Is… That your child?” As
sweat began to drip from my face. She then replied sobbing.
“This is our Adeoluw ….This is our son.”
I then said. “How come, how is it possible?” She said. “He is 2
years old, you are the only man I have slept with, he even
looks like you.”
I then said. “Oh my God!” As I sat down on a bench because
my knees became weary. “Tell me everything Tope.” She
said. “3 weeks after you left Kogi. I became ill and I was
vomiting. My mom then asked me if I was seeing any man. I
told her no. She took me to see the doctor, he ran some
tests and the result was that I was pregnant. My mom beat
me in the hospital with her slippers. When we got home, she
threw my stuffs out and disowned me. I went to meet my
closest relative and in spite of all the pleas my mom refused
to take me back……” As she started sobbing. I held her hand
tight to comfort her and said. “Continue.”
She then said. “My relatives insisted I tell them who was
responsible, but I refused. I didn’t want to implicate you and
I know you didn’t mean it. You have always wanted to help
me. So I did not tell them. 4 months later, they started
maltreating me and I then decided to leave. A pastors wife
took me in and I was there for 1 year. That was were I gave
birth to junior and worked with the church’s primary
school”. I then said. “You mean this church?” She said. “No, I
came to this church about 6 months ago. I had to leave the
other place, the pastor made some advances on me, I
reported to the wife and she threw me out. I have been here
since. It’s been terrible Adeoluwa ….”She began to cry out.
My mind was heavy and I knew I had to do something about
her situation. She suffered because of me, her education,
her family. I felt so much indebted to her. I then said.
“Tope, I know everything can’t be okay, but I will do
everything possible to make sure you get the best in life.
God has blessed me with a good job and money is not a
problem. I will get you an apartment here in Kogi and every
month I will send you N200,000 for you and Junior.”
