But before I proceed, I want to thank everyone who takes out time to read my story, not just mine though but everyone’s as well. It’s because of you guys I want to keep writing. I barely joined naijastories.com a few weeks ago and I’m glad I did and  was able to hear from the readers with their corrections and encouraging words. I do feel at home here, like for real because I’ve gotten familiar with some of the people who comment. I know this sounds so cliché, I can even tell as I’m writing this but I’m being really honest. Thank you so much for everything. At this point, I should say I love you guys but you probably don’t even know me from Eve (lowkey I still love you ;) ) but I truly appreciate you and your time. Now, enough of my cool story. You can read……

Oh!!! Before I forget, I’m guessing this post would be published in the new year so I just want to wish you guys a happy new and prosperous year. May your cup of blessings overflow this year and many years to come. May this year be way better than the previous years and may your new year resolutions be acted upon in Jesus mighty name. Amen. You can read now…..

Continuation…….

I excused myself and picked the call right in front of uncle Sam. He just kept staring at me with a very straight face. I couldn’t really tell if he was angry or not. I mean, it’s just a phone call right.

“Hello?” I said when I picked the call.

“How are you Meso? I just called to say hi” senior Daniel replied.

“I am fine senior Daniel.”

“No, no, no. You don’t need to call me senior Daniel. Just call me Daniel. I am your school father now.”

“Okay, I’m sorry Daniel. I won’t call you by senior Daniel again.”

“That’s much better, my baby,”

“My baby?” I questioned myself in my mind.

“What are you doing? I hope I’m not disrupting anything.” senior Daniel said.

“I’m actually busy with my uncle”

“Oh!!! so sorry. Then I’ll talk to you later. Just call me when you’re free”

He said and I replied with an okay before we ended the call. Dropping the phone back on the table, uncle Sam finally spoke up. “Who was that? your boyfriend abi? you’ve started dating ehn?”

“No uncle Sam, He’s not my boyfriend oo, I don’t have any boyfriend. He is just my school father.” I replied.

You don’t know that’s how it all starts. Don’t pay attention to them oo. You don’t know I’m the one that’ll marry you.” He said with a smile. I just laughed because it was not the first time he was saying it and he reminded me of my dad. My dad would always say that to me whenever he was trying to tell me to forget boys by not having boyfriends and facing my studies.

When we were almost done with our meal, uncle Sam cleared his throat and said he wanted to tell me something.

“My princess, do you know I like you. I love you so much. In fact, my love for you cannot be found in this world”

“Unc..” I was about to call him uncle Sam before I remembered he didn’t like it. “Sam, (it still sounded weird for me to call him that but I did anyway), I love you too, we all love you. You are a very nice man. Even my friends say so, especially after you bought things for them the day you took all of us out.” I said.

He just smiled when I stopped talking and replied, “No, Meso, I don’t mean that. I……(taking a long pause)…….don’t worry”

I couldn’t understand what was going on or what he was trying to say, but he just smiled. We finished our meal and waited for some time before we left the restaurant. When we got into the car, uncle Sam didn’t start the engine immediately. He looked up at me and leaned in closer to me. I thought he was trying to grab something from my side of the car, but he pecked me on my cheeks instead and whispered, “I love you”. There was something different in his voice especially the way he said he loved me. it didn’t really sound like the uncle Sam I knew. He sounded more like a different man. I was just eleven, almost twelve so I didn’t really suspect anything. He was just my uncle after all. He later started the engine, asking me where I wanted to go so I told him I wanted to go to the movies and immediately he drove there. When we got to the movies, he bought me popcorn and a Pepsi and got the same for himself. It wasn’t yet time for the movie we wanted to watch, so we went to check out some other things around. The movie theatre was in a big shopping mall, so we decided to go site seeing and possibly buy something for Esther.

An hour later, we were back to the movie theatre, taking our seats on the third row, we sat right in the middle. During the movie, uncle Sam kept on glancing at me. I just smiled whenever I caught him stare. I was enjoying the movie, so I paid little attention to what he said or did. I laughed almost every single minute and couldn’t control myself even uncle Sam noticed how much I was enjoying the movie. Two hours later, we were done and we left the cinema. While we were seated in the car, uncle Sam told me he wanted to get something from his house and so we drove there immediately.

When we got into his house, he asked if I was hungry. I laughed and asked him if he wanted to kill me with food so he got the message that I wasn’t hungry. He dropped his keys on the table and asked me to follow him to his bedroom. I didn’t see anything wrong with it because he was my uncle so I followed him. We got into his room and he went to his closet immediately. I guess he wanted to grab something, I just went for the bed. I was about to sit down, when he said I should check in the drawers beside his bed for a blue paper. I was guessing it was an important document so I reached for the drawers and opened the first one. I didn’t see any blue paper so I decided to check the other two drawers below the first. When I opened the second one, my eyes automatically became bigger.

I saw a drawer filled with what looked like condom, although they were all still in its pack, I didn’t stop at staring. I decided to touch one and I realized it did feel like what they had brought to class one time during our integrated science period. My teacher had shown us a condom when she was teaching on sex education and reproduction in which she made us get a feel of it. She said she wouldn’t expect anyone our age to be having sex but just told us that it was one of the ways people prevented sexually transmitted diseases or getting pregnant. To my guess, I concluded it was a condom. I turned back to see if uncle Sam noticed what I had seen, and just about that same moment I turned, he turned as well. He looked down to the drawer and realized  what I just viewed. My heart started pounding like I had seen the devil.

To be continued………..

As usual, you know what to do ;)

  1. Thanks first for the new year prayers, I say AMEN to them and pray same to you too.

    Thank you for taking d corrections and making this episode the best read so far. We can only get better.

    And lastly, thanks for the pictures. I love it.

    My heart is beating fast already, I hope it doesn’t pop out before the next episode…I’m scared for our character…I hope Uncle Sam won’t ….OMG#

    Well done.

    1. Lol don’t worry it won’t pop out. I’m glad you liked this episode. Thanks for reading .

  2. Amazing New Year, thanks for your prayers.

    Patiently awaiting what’s next!

    1. No problem, the next episode comes up soon. Thanks for reading. :)

  3. Now, that’s better! You received the previous comments for what they are: corrections, to make you a better writer. And here we are–beautiful!

    Still, . . . uncle Sam has not done ‘anything wrong’ yet, and, personally, I think it has been a long wait. You’re writing from the first person POV, that I guess limits you a bit, else I would have suggested you take occasional breaks and allow us the privilege to know a little more about other characters and the drama in their lives too–while we wait for uncle Sam; same time, without taking the shine from Meso. I just feel the story is dragging its feet, a bit.

    You have an amazing story, don’t get me wrong.

    1. I’m glad this episode was better. #sneakpeak, the next episode actually has another character’s POV. Sorry for keeping you waiting. I guess you feel that way because the episodes aren’t all released at the same time. Don’t worry, I’ll see to that. Thanks for reading though.

      1. Wow!!! This episode is so mesmerizing. can’t wait!!

  4. Uncle Sam! I hope he’s not gonna misbehave although he’s leaning towards that angle already. Hmmmm…waiting. You know what to do #wink

    1. Lol, we’ll find out soon. Thanks for reading.

  5. @benita best episode so far, really like the pictures you insert into Your stories.. Makes the reader feel some sort of connection with the writer.. It’s pretty cool. but this 1st pov is really limiting u.. We’re not getting to enjoy the story from other viewpoints.. If we did then there’d be more depth for the characters. Uncle Sam for example is a bit of a flat character..all I know is he’s a pediophile who wants to get into his niece’s pants.. Maybe tell us a little more about him.. Like why he’s the way he is.. And what about the other characters.. Like I said 1st person pov is kinda limiting u.. Or maybe this is just how you wanna write it.. Nevertheless i’m really loving this story.. SUch good writing.. Awaiting d next part..
    Oh nd amen to those blessings

    1. Thanks for reading :) The episodes to come actually have other characters’ POV. Please be patient and I hope it will be worth it. Thank you.

  6. Well done. Awaiting the next episode.

  7. Lemme just say that the foundation of this story was bent the imagination we carried was back to the 90s where nokia that was used then was bought at #70,000 and now you’re talking about mall the time frame was not that good

  8. @benita Amen to the new year prayers.
    why is uncle Sam like this na?

    I also joined the group that needs to know more bout this Uncle Sam.. :-)

    loving dz story like ki lo de.

  9. This Uncle better not be a pervert. Anyways, no judging till i read the last episode. I like your picture illustrations!

  10. Thanks for the Prayers
