I wasn’t a stranger to sex.I had seen several scenes on T.V . I read Mama’s Mills and Boons everytime. It was always safely tucked in the middle of my class note. Mama would praise me for being studious. I always read late into the night. One day I asked Mama what “Cunt” meant. She choked on her meal.
Where did you hear that?, she had asked
I read it somewhere, I replied
Where?, she demanded
“My classmate wrote it on her book”, I lied
“I think I need to have a word with your teacher”
She never did though.
Caro, our neighbors daughter was always having sex with John- another neighbours son -under the staircase. I always hear them.
So the sound Mama was making was far from strange.
Ahhh Patrick….ohh…. harder! Yes! Yes!
I increased the volume of the T.V. I was disgusted to hear mama and Papa in the act.
They should actually try to be more discreet.
I looked at Jesus and wondered what he thought about sex.
Then I heard the buzzer.
I would never understand the Chinese. Did they have hearing issues?
I looked through the peep hole and saw some church members.
The buzzer again, followed by a knock on the door.
Mama Ejiro!!!, Are you home?, Sister Agnes, our Sunday school teacher called out. ” Ejiro! Tricia! ”
They had never come to our house before. Papa had warned Mama. He didn’t want anybody from her church visiting the house.
Mama had stopped moaning.
Papa appeared at the door.
Who is there? he asked
I just stared at him blankly
Tricia looked like she was going to throw up.
“Greetings from church o”, said Sister Agnes, “Brother Dele and I are here to see you o. We did not see you in ….
Papa, shirtless with only his boxer shorts opened the door.
