I COUNTED 7. THE GUYS were initially shocked. LATER they took up her challenge were all GRUNTING LIKE PIGS, SCREAMED and immediately LED HER TO THE ROOM. I declined. THEY ALL TOOK THEIR TURNS. IFEANYI’S TURN CAME AND HE HAD A GLEE IN HIS EYES. HE CAME OUT AND ORDERED FOR MORE BOOZE. HE WENT A SECOND TIME.
ANGELA LEFT THE FOLLOWING MORNING.She was happy. We did not know why. We bade her BYE. She actually handled all the guys. 7 of them and came out UNSCATHED. Ifeanyi kept HAILING ME FOR SOLVING HIS SEX DEPRIVATIONS and DEPRAVATIONS.
On Monday, the guys were screaming. 5 had problems urinating.LATER TESTS REVEALED FOUR GONORRHEA CASES AND ONE SYPHILIS CASE. TWO of the guys were lucky. Ifeanyi was spared the agony.
ANGEL OF DEATHhad STRUCK. The guys were treated. Ifeanyi paid for some of the treatments, while my CACHE of the valuable property of GF No. 1 came in handy.
Nobody saw ANGELA again. SHE JUST DISAPPEARED INTO THIN AIR.We heard from a GIRL IN THE VILLAGE AFTER 7 MONTHS THAT ANGELA WAS DEAD. She died in UBTH. The stories were; that SHE HAD HIV, some said she slept with an HAUSA MAN that used her for RITUALS. She actually died. ALL THE GUYS PANICKED. NO ONE HAD THE COURAGE TO GO FOR A TEST. BUT THEY ARE ALL ALIVE TODAY. 12 YEARS COUNTING. We later found out that ANGELA was from a POLYGAMOUS HOME WITH 23 KIDS. SHE HAD TO FEND FOR HERSELF and some of her younger ones.
MAY ANGELA’S SOUL FIND PEACE. I STILL SHED SOME TEARS ANYTIME I REMEMBER HER.
I wrote this NOTE IMMEDIATELY she came to mind; WITH ANDRE SUCKING AWAY AND GIOVANNI DRINKING APPLE JUICE FROM A CUP WITH WOODY AND BUZZ IMAGES ON IT ON A COLD WINTER NIGHT IN CHICAGO. I shed another round of tears. They have a home. Angela did not have a home, no love, no parental care and had to survive. Something in me changed after that experience.
SPARE A THOUGTH FOR SO MANY ANGELAS OUT THERE.
ADDENDUM: The names used on this NOTE are REAL PEOPLE. THEY EXIST BUT PART OF THIS THIS STORY IS OF THE AUTHOR’S IMAGINATIONS.
